Psychedelic Medicine Is Coming. The Law Isn’t Ready
A surprising resurgence of psychedelic research has produced its first FDA-approved treatment, with more likely on the way

In March, the Food and Drug Administration approved esketamine, a drug that produces psychedelic effects, to treat depression—the first psychedelic ever to clear that bar. Meanwhile the FDA has granted "breakthrough therapy" status—a designation that enables fast-tracked research—to study MDMA (also called "ecstasy") as a treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder and psilocybin as a treatment for major depression.

The UK is well prepared for a no deal Brexit. In the case of medicine, food, fuel or water shortages the stoic Englanders will just be optimistic, develop a can do spirit and think of Dunkirk. Something like that.

Study Finds Nearly 400 Medical Devices, Procedures And Practices That Are Ineffective



When a medical treatment, device or procedure is no better than previous or lesser alternatives, it's deemed a 'medical reversal'. These discredited practices are a major barrier to better and cheaper healthcare, but actually identifying them is surprisingly difficult and rarely done.

A recent study, designed to create a more comprehensive list, has unearthed nearly 400 established treatments, devices and procedures that fit this bill.

"We hope our broad results may serve as a starting point for researchers, policy makers and payers who wish to have a list of practices that likely offer no net benefit to use in future work," says hematologist-oncologist Vinay Prasad from Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), who helped coin the term 'medical reversal'.

The findings are based on more than 15 years of randomised controlled trials, a type of research that aims to reduce bias when testing new treatments. Across 3,000 articles in three leading medical journals from the UK and the US, the authors found 396 reversals.

DYSMENORRHEA


dys·men·or·rhe·a
noun: painful menstruation, typically involving abdominal cramps

This condition is very common. The pathomechanism (cause) has two main components: abnormal blood flow patterns and hormone system dysregulation. When blood flow is poor, the uterus will cramp as it struggles to shed the lining. The quality of blood will be clumpy and dark showing a pattern of blood stagnation.

Although each patient is unique and requires an individualized approach, here is a base prescription I have used with great outcomes:
- Paeoniae Radix alba
- Atractylodis macrocephalae Rhizoma
- Chuanxiong Rhizoma
- Angelicae sinensis Radix
- Poria
- Alismatis Rhizoma

Note: the primary function of this prescription is to nourish and move the uterine blood.

Swiss Medical Weekly - A curious association of chronic homeopathic arsenic ingestion with nonspecific symptoms in a Swiss teenager

That's why #homeopathy is dangerous.

Why homeopathy is successful despite scientific contradiction


He believed that if medicine was to move from sequential delusions towards effective truth, then we should not just look at why each successive medical theory was wrong, but to come up with general reasons why doctors and their patients continually make mistakes about what is effective and what is not.

People inevitably seek treatments when symptoms are at their worst. It is equally inevitable that we will subsequently have better days, even if our chosen treatment was ineffective. Jumping to conclusions, based on simple experiences of treatments, can quickly lead us to error. This point may appear trivial, and yet it is the foundation for belief in all superstitious and pseudo-scientific treatments.

Such a notion of dilution resulting in larger effects is counter to our everyday understanding of the world. You do not make coffee stronger by diluting it. You do not get drunk on shandy. Because all homeopathic remedies are essentially identically inert pills, homeopaths are free to make remedies from any and all substances no matter how poisonous, harmless or daft. On Ainsworths sales site, you can buy remedies made from Asbestos, Positronium, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Brillo Pad and Twiglets. You are not told about such remedies on public blog posts because you are not in the cult and you are still freely thinking.

Sure, why not try some asbestos pills, they will surely cure you soon. Or vanish you from the earth, which may be called a cure as well, depending on who you ask.

It's an old (for the internet standard) article, but I don't recall having seen this in the news before, and it actually was on Slashdot a few days ago.
…and yes, it's as nasty as it looks.

Goldman asks: 'Is curing patients a sustainable business model?'

"GILD is a case in point, where the success of its hepatitis C franchise has gradually exhausted the available pool of treatable patients," the analyst wrote. "In the case of infectious diseases such as hepatitis C, curing existing patients also decreases the number of carriers able to transmit the virus to new patients, thus the incident pool also declines … Where an incident pool remains stable (eg, in cancer) the potential for a cure poses less risk to the sustainability of a franchise."

The average human brain has about 100 billion neurons (or nerve cells) and many more neuroglia (or glial cells) which serve to support and protect the neurons.
