Medicine World Enterprises, LLC – Stress and Hormones Affect Weight More Than Previously Understood

Medicine World Enterprises, LLC – Stress and Hormones Affect Weight More Than Previously Understood

New York, NY (PRWEB) April 08, 2015

Very few professionals would argue with the proposition that diet and exercise combine to represent the fundamental components of weight management. However, it turns out that two other factors, stress and hormones contribute significantly. They appear to interact and contribute to the ways that most people process food and benefit from exercise. The good news is that both are manageable to a degree that has significant bearing on weight control.

Dr. Veronica Anderson has analyzed data from the Mayo Clinic, Harvard, and other reliable sources. She recognizes that the general categories of food consumption and exercise have multiple subcategories including genetics, hormonal issues, diet quality, sleep, and stress. The public least understands stress and hormones, but they offer everyone the best opportunity to make adjustments.

The way Dr. Veronica describes the connection is that stress is the human body’s natural response to perceived threats. An example she uses is that you suddenly realize your toddler has wandered away from your sight at a park playground. A region of the brain known as the hypothalamus stimulates adrenal glands that release adrenaline and cortisol. The adrenaline raises your heart rate, blood pressure, and energy. It is cortisol, the number one stress hormone, which increases the sugar supply in the bloodstream (leading to weight gain), inhibits the immune system, and suppresses digestion. Other by-products include fear, mood disruptions, and reduced motivation.

In the example, as soon as you notice your child emerge from a play structure, the hormone levels normalize and everything else self regulates once again. However, today’s world has a way of maintaining elevated levels of stress beyond normal parameters. Long-term stress response, even at the relatively low levels we experience in competitive working environments, leads to heart disease, sleep disorders, depression, memory impairment, and weight gain.

Unfortunately, the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) has increased the problem since it has resulted in a reduction in reimbursements to physicians who deal with these issues. Proactive health care practitioners such as Dr. Veronica advise against taking pills that only mask the symptoms. Rather, she recommends managing stress with her 5 Pillars of Health program that include: 1-Detoxification, 2-Nutrition, 3-Fitness, 4-Nervous System Maintenance, and 5-Hormonal Regulation.

While stress reduction strategies such as meditation, yoga, and other relaxation techniques play a role, Dr. Veronica notes the long-term solutions to uncontrollable weight extend beyond those. She adds, “You cannot just quit your job or get a divorce.” She instructs people that they must learn about the cycle of stress and sustainable methods to break it.

Support World Food Day by Supporting Family Farming Programs- Food for the Hungry Programs Inspire Hope and End Poverty

Support World Food Day by Supporting Family Farming Programs- Food for the Hungry Programs Inspire Hope and End Poverty

Food from FH seed multiplication program in Congo

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) October 09, 2014

When the terms “kitchen garden” or “home farm,” are heard, one might picture a box of fresh herbs growing in the windowsill or a few tomato plants climbing up a trellis in a pot on the patio. In developing countries, however, family farming is not a popular trend. It’s the key to ending poverty, stopping childhood malnutrition and saving lives.

Today, there are over 800 million hungry people in the word, with 26 percent of the world’s children suffering from malnutrition and 2 billion people having at least one micronutrient deficiency. Family farmers are making a world of difference in improving food security. This year, the UN General Assembly has designated 2014 as the “International Year of Family Farming” and the theme for this year’s World Food Day, October 16, 2014, is “Family Farming: Feeding the World, Caring for the Earth.”

Food for the Hungry (FH) is leading the charge, establishing sustainable farming programs with the goal of eradicating poverty in the world’s hardest hit areas.

“FH is on the ground in some of the most remote and poverty-stricken countries,” Marty Martin FH’s Chief Operating Officer. “Our programs are designed to help people take ownership of their development, so that over time, they will no longer be reliant on FH or any other entities to create their own sustainable future.”

Below are just two of the many FH success stories that demonstrate how FH walks with communities to bring hope and progress.

Planting Hope: Seed Multiplication Project in the Democratic Republic of Congo

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, constant internal conflict has resulted in 2 million people being displaced and 6.4 million people experiencing food insecurity. Jobs are scarce and most people survive by selling small amounts of surplus produce in local markets or taking on odd jobs. Thirty-two-year-old mother of six, Angelaine Christine Feza, was one of the many people in Kitchanga village barely getting by. “Before FH came here,” says Angelaine, “we just survived with what we could find. My husband and I planted yams on a small piece of land. We sold what we could to put food on the table. Whatever little was left, we’d take the children to school.”

FH established the Emilingombe seed multiplication program in Kitchanga to help people like Feza improve the health of their crops. Here, vulnerable families improve the quality of seeds in the community, learn good agronomy practices, and feed their families. Peasant farmers learn the importance of crop spacing and weeding to ensure a better yield. They also participate in a community project such as working in the tree nursery or in seed multiplication nurseries in exchange for a monthly food ration, typically 50kg (about 110 pounds) of corn, eight kgs (17 pounds) of peas and four liters (1 gallon) of vegetable oil. As a result of her participation in this program, Angelaine’s hope for the future has been renewed. “Since I began working here,” she says, “I am sure of food for my family, hunger has reduced. I was always worried about what my children would eat. At times we only ate at night. With the little food, they weren’t healthy.”

Sowing Seeds of Change: Potato Seed Production Program in Ethiopia

Despite his best efforts, 35-year old Ethiopian father of six, Abera Anula, was unable to provide for his children due to the low productivity of his farmland. Just as he was preparing to hire human traffickers and risk his life to migrate illegally to South Africa, FH approached him and asked if he would like to participate in their improved potato seed production program. Here, he learned how to multiply good potato seeds and to distribute to fellow farmers in his community.

“After the training, FH gave me 1,250kg (2.2 pounds) of potato seed for multiplication which I planted and after four months, I produced 14,000kg (31,000 pounds) of improved potato seed and sold it for about ,000 USD.” Abera used the proceeds to buy a hybrid milking cow and an ox, saving a portion for the money for his trip to South Africa. The following year, he produced more potato seed and sold it for an even better price. “Now, I am able to rent more farm land from other farmers to expand the potato seed multiplication project. In two years, I am able to feed my children year round, supply milk and send four of my children to school.“ He says he still has the saved money to migrate to South Africa, but FH helped him find a better job opportunity in his own village. He has a plan to open a grinding mill with the money he has saved, providing a service to his fellow villagers. “Thank you FH for opening my eyes to see a better job opportunity in my village.”

There are ways to support the efforts of FH to end poverty through the FH catalog. A donation of provides 20 food tree seedlings to grow nutritious fruits like avocados, apples, bananas, papaya, mango and oranges. A gift of provides rural farmers with a shovel, hoe, grass cutter and machete. Sow a seed of hope with a donation to purchase seeds for tomatoes, onions, peppers, squash, cucumbers, zucchini and legumes.

Founded in 1971, Food for the Hungry provides emergency relief and long-term development programs with operations in more than 20 countries to help the world’s most vulnerable people. Learn more by visiting Social connections include and

Platelet-Rich Plasma Aids World Record-Setting Accomplishment

xml:lang=”en” lang=”en” xmlns=””>

Platelet-Rich Plasma Aids World Record-Setting Accomplishment

Huntsville, AL (PRWEB) October 20, 2010

At 68 years old, Pastor Bob Kurtz of Cullman, Alabama, beat his own world record by playing 500 consecutive holes of golf. This accomplishment was aided by a new tendonitis treatment called Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). A group from Pastor Bob’s congregation at St. John’s Protestant Evangelical Church devised the concept of a golf marathon to raise money for orphaned children. As an avid and highly skilled golfer, Pastor Bob was asked to be the “iron man” of the marathon.

A standard golf marathon consists of 100 holes, but Pastor Bob’s love for golf and his philanthropic energy wouldn’t settle for the status quo. He completed three marathons of 168 holes and 220 holes, and, in 2008, broke the 401 hole Guinness Book World Record by playing 405 consecutive holes of golf.

“Then I thought I could do 500,” says Pastor Bob. “I had a year to get ready and I was ready except for one problem, and that was a torn tendon in my right elbow. That was a major concern.” Pastor Bob had been hitting hundreds of golf balls per day to prepare for the ultimate marathon and acquired what is known as the golfer’s elbow: a soft-tissue tendon tear on the inside of his right elbow. “It (his elbow) was very very painful,” said Pastor Bob.

With the 500 hole marathon approaching, and an increasingly painful tendon tear, surgery requiring excessive recovery time and strength loss wasn’t an option. Pastor Bob needed a medical treatment that could expedite the healing process and discovered Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy.

“PRP has become one of the most discussed treatments in orthopaedics because it represents the potential for unprecedented healing of conditions which previously had limited treatment choices,” says orthopaedic surgeon and sports medicine expert, Dr. Michael Cantrell. Dr. Cantrell performs PRP at The Orthopaedic Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Dr. Cantrell continues, “It also potentially speeds healing and recovery for athletes and other individuals who need to return to prior sports and activities as quickly as possible.” PRP requires about an hour and involves removing a small amount of a patient’s blood and then rapidly spinning it in a centrifuge or filtration system to concentrate healing components known as platelets. Platelets contain growth factors, used by the body to create and re-grow cells. The platelets are separated from red blood and white blood cells, concentrated into higher doses and re-injected directly into the injured area, where blood would rarely go otherwise.

“These (blood platelets) are your body’s own ultimate vitamins,” says Dr. John Greco, head team physician for Alabama A&M University and orthopaedic surgeon, who also treats certain patients with PRP at The Orthopaedic Center. Dr. Greco continues, “if you believe in a holistic manner of treatment then this is a natural way to help the body jump start the healing process.”

While a multitude of clinical studies are underway, the research to this point has concluded PRP can be beneficial in soft-tissue injuries (tendon, ligament, joint, muscle and cartilage) and warrants further research. PRP has been used for bone growth in the dental community for over 20 years and now may aid sports injuries and tendonitis.

“PRP is considered safe and “natural” because all material is autologous. This means it’s the patient’s own blood,” says Dr. Cantrell. “Thus, there is nothing artificial, and no risk of disease transmission from any donor material.”

Many professional athletes have turned to PRP to speed up their recoveries. After a spraining his knee in the 2009 Playoffs, Hines Ward returned for the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Super Bowl victory after receiving PRP. Other athletes treated with PRP include Ward’s teammate Troy Palamalu, World number one ranked tennis star, Rafeal Nadal, and world number one ranked golfer, Tiger Woods.

“It wasn’t difficult at all,” says Pastor Bob. “It turned out to reduce a lot of the pain and gave me my confidence back. In all honesty, I never thought about it (the injury) the two days of the marathon.” Following PRP, Pastor Bob completed the 500 hole marathon in June, raising over ,000 for children’s charities. The energetic and ambitious Pastor Bob was very thankful for the option of receiving PRP. “This injection helped me out enormously. It exceeded my hopes.” Pastor Bob chuckles, “We finished with the 500th hole and the last thing I thought about was an aching elbow. There were a lot of other things that ached, but not the elbow.”

The Orthopaedic Center (TOC) in Huntsville, Alabama provides the ultimate orthopaedic care. For more information on PRP, please visit The Orthopaedic Center’s PRP website: or call TOC directly at (256) 539-2728.
