Mindfulness meditation helps fight insomnia, improves sleep

How long do hot flashes last? It used to be said that menopause-related hot flashes fade away after six to 24 months. But for many women, hot flashes and night sweats often last seven years and may go on for 11 years or more.

The hormonal roller coaster that comes with the end of a woman’s childbearing years can trigger a range of hot flash symptoms. Up to 80% of women going through menopause experience hot flashes. Hot flashes, also known as vasomotor symptoms, are often described as a sudden sensation of heat in the chest, face, and head followed by flushing, perspiration, and sometimes chills. When a hot flash occurs during sleep, it can be accompanied by a drenching sweat. Such night sweats make it difficult to get a good night’s rest.The estimates of the duration of these symptoms come from the Study of Women’s Health Across the Nation (SWAN), a long-term study of women of different races and ethnicities who are in the menopausal transition. They were published in JAMA Internal Medicine.

“The data from this study confirm what many women already know firsthand. Hot flashes can go on for years and take a toll on a woman’s health and well-being,” says Dr. JoAnn Manson, professor of women’s health at Harvard Medical School and professor of epidemiology at Harvard School of Public Health.
The SWAN researchers found that some women are more likely to deal with long-term hot flashes than others. Women who had their first hot flashes before their menstrual periods ended had hot flashes for an average of nine to 10 years. When hot flashes didn’t start until after the last menstrual period, the average duration was only about three and a half years. But even on the short end of the spectrum, that’s a long time to deal with hot flashes and night sweats.
Women in the SWAN study who experienced hot flashes for a longer time tended to be current or former smokers, overweight, stressed, depressed, or anxious. Ethnicity also played a role. African American women reported the longest duration of hot flashes (averaging more than 11 years), while Japanese and Chinese women had hot flashes for about half that time.
The “reality check” the SWAN study provides on hot flashes should encourage women to seek solutions. If hot flashes and night sweats are really bothering you, don’t put up with them. Talk with your doctor about treatment options.

The most effective hot flashes treatment is estrogen-based hormone therapy, though it comes with several downsides. “While hormone therapy is very effective at relieving hot flashes, longer-term treatment carries an increased risk for breast cancer, and women at older ages have higher risks of stroke, blood clots, and other health problems. So it’s important that women explore a full range of treatment options — especially women likely to have persistent hot flashes,” advises Dr. Manson.

Several non-hormonal medications can also provide r hot flashes treatment and relief from night sweats. These include some types of antidepressants, some drugs commonly prescribed for nerve pain, and some high blood pressure medications. As with any medication, it’s best to opt for the lowest dose that effectively relieves your symptoms, and to take it for the shortest amount of time possible.

For some women, self-help measures can help ease hot flashes. These include deep-breathing exercises when a hot flash starts; dressing in layers; lowering the thermostat; staying away from caffeine, alcohol, hot beverages, and spicy foods; stress reduction techniques like meditation and mindfulness; and doing your best to stay cool in general.

A free mobile app called MenoPro, developed by Dr. Manson and her colleagues at the North American Menopause Society, helps women understand their treatment options and work with their healthcare providers to find the best approach for them. The app is currently available for iPhones and iPads. More information is available at the North American Menopause Society website. If you knew that a vaccine could prevent your daughter or son from developing a relatively common and potentially deadly cancer later in life, would you have her or him get it? Such a vaccine is available, and it’s about to get even better than it is now — but fewer than half of all teens have gotten it.

I am talking about a vaccine against the human papilloma virus (HPV). It is responsible for cervical cancer, which strikes 12,000 women each year in the United States and kills 4,000. Only 15% of women diagnosed with advanced cervical cancer survive for five years or more — a grim statistic. HPV also causes cancer of the vulva, vagina, penis, anus, mouth, and throat.

A key barrier against more widespread use of this vaccine is an issue that stops many conversations about teen health: sex.
A new HPV vaccine

Human papilloma virus isn’t a single virus. It’s a family of 150 or so related viruses. The first HPV vaccine, approved for girls in 2006 and for boys in 2009, attack four types of HPV that cause the majority of cervical cancers. The new vaccine covers nine HPV types, making it even more effective.

A report in today’s New England Journal of Medicine shows that the new vaccine was effective against 97% of cancerous or precancerous changes in the cervix, vulva, and vagina related to five HPV types not covered by the first vaccine. That means it is expected to be able to prevent most cases of cervical cancer — a very important advance in cancer prevention.
Low coverage

About half (57%) of American girls between the ages of 13 and 17 get the first dose of the HPV vaccine, while only one-third (32%) get all three necessary doses. Coverage for boys is even lower.

The recommended age for getting the vaccine is 11 to 12. One reason is that the body mounts a more powerful antibody response at that age than it does a few years later. Furthermore, children ages 11 and 12 are already scheduled to get vaccines for tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, and meningitis, so adding the HPV vaccine would be convenient. Finally, HPV is spread mostly by sexual contact. Getting the vaccine by age 12 ensures that children will be protected before they enter their early teens, an age when a growing number of American youths begin sexual activity.

Some parents refuse HPV vaccination because they think it will encourage their children to become sexually active or sexually promiscuous. Several solid studies have refuted this.

As does a new one published last week in JAMA Internal Medicine. It took a novel approach to this issue. Dr. Anupam Jena, assistant professor of health policy at Harvard Medical School, and colleagues looked at rates of sexually transmitted infections among more than 200,000 young women before and after HPV vaccination. There were no differences in these rates, suggesting that being vaccinated does not promote risky sexual behavior.
Improving coverage

HPV isn’t a problem for women only. Boys develop HPV-related cancer, too, as highlighted by actor Michael Douglas’s revelation that his throat cancer was likely caused by HPV transmitted during oral sex. Vaccinating boys as well as girls would also help stem the spread of HPV.

In an editorial in JAMA Internal Medicine that accompanied the report by Dr. Jena’s team, Dr. Robert A. Bednarczyk of Emory University wrote, “just as we do not wait until we have been in the sun for 2 hours to apply sunscreen, we should not wait until after an individual is sexually active to attempt to prevent HPV infection.”

I believe that HPV vaccination makes good sense for both girls and boys. The benefits of cancer prevention clearly outweigh any small risks, and the benefits will be further extended by the broader spectrum of the new vaccine. I urge parents to protect their children with this important preventive measure. If you’ve ever crawled under the covers worrying about a problem or a long to-do list, you know those racing thoughts may rob you of a good night’s sleep. Sleep disturbances, like having a hard time falling asleep or staying asleep, affect millions of Americans.

The daytime sleepiness that follows can leave you feeling lousy and sap your productivity, and it may even harm your health. Now, a small study suggests that mindfulness meditation — a mind-calming practice that focuses on breathing and awareness of the present moment — can help.

A study published a few years ago in JAMA Internal Medicine  included 49 middle-aged and older adults who had trouble sleeping. Half completed a mindfulness awareness program that taught them meditation and other exercises designed to help them focus on “moment-by-moment experiences, thoughts, and emotions.” The other half completed a sleep education class that taught them ways to improve their sleep habits.

Both groups met six times, once a week for two hours. Compared with the people in the sleep education group, those in the mindfulness group had less insomnia, fatigue, and depression at the end of the six sessions.

The findings come as no surprise to Dr. Herbert Benson, director emeritus of the Harvard-affiliated Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine. “Mindfulness meditation is just one of a smorgasbord of techniques that evoke the relaxation response,” says Dr. Benson.

The relaxation response, a term he coined in the 1970s, is a deep physiological shift in the body that’s the opposite of the stress response. The relaxation response can help ease many stress-related ailments, including depression, pain, and high blood pressure. For many people, sleep disorders are closely tied to stress, says Dr. Benson.

Mindfulness meditation involves focusing on your breathing and then bringing your mind’s attention to the present without drifting into concerns about the past or future. It helps you break the train of your everyday thoughts to evoke the relaxation response, using whatever technique feels right to you.

Dr. Benson recommends practicing mindfulness during the day, ideally for 20 minutes, the same amount suggested in the new study. “The idea is to create a reflex to more easily bring forth a sense of relaxation,” he says. That way, it’s easier to evoke the relaxation response at night when you can’t sleep. In fact, the relaxation response is so, well, relaxing that your daytime practice should be done sitting up or moving (as in yoga or tai chi) so as to avoid nodding off.

Step 1: Choose a calming focus. Good examples are your breath, a sound (“Om”), a short prayer, a positive word (such as “relax” or “peace”), or a phrase (“breathing in calm, breathing out tension”; “I am relaxed”). If you choose a sound, repeat it aloud or silently as you inhale or exhale.

Step 2: Let go and relax. Don’t worry about how you’re doing. When you notice your mind has wandered, simply take a deep breath or say to yourself “thinking, thinking” and gently return your attention to your chosen focus.

Menopause-related hot flashes and night sweats can last for years

After shoveling for days, breaking up ice dams, and now shivering in this week’s frigid temperatures, I wouldn’t mind sitting in a sauna for a bit. A new report in JAMA Internal Medicine makes this pastime even more appealing: regularly spending time in a sauna may help keep the heart healthy and extend life.

Researchers from the University of Eastern Finland tracked 2,300 middle-aged men for an average of 20 years. They categorized the men into three groups according to how often they used a sauna each week. The men spent an average of 14 minutes per visit baking in 175° F heat. Over the course of the study, 49% of men who went to a sauna once a week died, compared with 38% of those who went two to three times a week and just 31% of those who went four to seven times a week. Frequent visits to a sauna were also associated with lower death rates from cardiovascular disease and stroke.

The results don’t surprise Dr. Thomas H. Lee, a cardiologist at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital and founding editor of the Harvard Heart Letter. “The cardiovascular effects of sauna have been well documented in the past. It lowers blood pressure, and there is every reason to believe that its effects are good for blood vessels,” says Dr. Lee.

Earlier studies have shown that regular sauna bathing may benefit people with risk factors for heart disease, such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes. It’s generally safe and likely beneficial for people with mild heart failure, but may not be so hot for those with unstable angina or a recent heart attack.

The researchers were quick to state that because of the unique properties of Finnish saunas, their results aren’t applicable to steam baths and hot tubs. Finnish saunas are wood-lined rooms, usually heated by a stove topped with stones. The air inside the sauna is very hot and dry, although sauna bathers periodically add water to the stones to produce a vapor known as “loyly.”
The sauna’s place in Finnish life

Sauna use is deeply embedded in Finnish culture. A nation of 5.5 million people, Finland has as many saunas as television sets — around 3.3 million. Most of the saunas are in people’s homes, although they’re also standard amenities in offices and factories. Saunas are accessible to Finns of every walk of life, so it’s unlikely that the study participants who used saunas often were already at lower risk of dying early because they were better off socioeconomically.

The researchers also emphasize that the very nature of the Finnish sauna is designed to reduce stress. The sauna has been a gathering place for family and friends for centuries. And sauna etiquette, which frowns upon swearing or discussing controversial topics while bathing, is instilled in Finns during childhood.

In fact, Finns may spend even more time in the sauna than they do exercising. While most Finns visit a sauna at least once a week, only about half of Finnish men and a third of Finnish women between 18 and 65 meet the World Health Organization exercise guidelines, which recommend the equivalent of 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity five days a week. The Finnish researchers suggest that saunas may provide some cardiovascular conditioning because the high temperatures can drive heart rates to levels often achieved by moderate-intensity physical exercise.

So is sitting in a sauna the equivalent of exercising? “I don’t know that I would substitute a sauna for exercise. But exercising and then taking a sauna seems like a very healthy routine,” Dr. Lee says.
If you want to try a sauna

Although saunas haven’t become a cultural institution in the United States, many gyms, Y’s, Jewish Community Centers, and health clubs have them. If you’re intrigued about the prospect of ending your workout in a sauna and want to learn more about sauna etiquette or get instructions for building your own sauna, visit the North American Sauna Society website. The No Nuts Moms Group website lists some of the young people who have died from food allergies — many from peanut allergy — going back to 1986. The lengthy list is a sad reminder that a peanut allergy can cause a severe and sometimes deadly allergic reaction. Parents who have a child who is allergic to peanuts do many things to keep him or her out of harm’s way.

A study published online today in The New England Journal of Medicine offers some hope for parents of infants who may be headed toward a peanut allergy. That hope is peanuts.

For the study, an international team of researchers recruited infants who had an egg allergy or eczema, an allergic disorder that affects the skin. Both are indicators that a child is prone to a peanut allergy. The children were randomly divided into two groups. The parents in one group were asked to make sure their children didn’t eat any peanuts, peanut butter, or other peanut-based products until age five. Parents in the other group were asked to give their children a peanut-based snack called Bamba or peanut butter three times a week until age five.

The results were surprising and dramatic. A peanut allergy developed in 1.9% of children who ate Bamba or peanut butter, compared with 13.7% of those who didn’t eat peanuts. One explanation for this difference is that the children who ate peanuts early developed what is called immune tolerance to them. Their young immune systems adapted to the proteins in peanuts so that they did not react to them.

The researchers got the idea for this trial from a previous study of theirs. They knew that Israeli children are typically fed peanuts much earlier in life than British children. So they compared peanut allergies in Jewish children living in Israel with those in Jewish children living in London. Peanut allergies were 10 times higher in the British children than in the Israeli children.

In an unrelated study, a team from the Jaffe Food Allergy Institute at Kravis Children’s Hospital at Mount Sinai in New York City presented similar findings on Sunday at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology in Houston. They showed that a wearable patch that gradually exposes the body to small amounts of peanut protein may be effective in easing the allergy. After wearing the patch for a year, people with peanut allergies could tolerate the equivalent of four peanuts at a time. The patch, called Viaskin, is made by DBV Technologies, which funded the study.

What does this new work mean for parents? If an infant is allergy-prone, it may be a good idea to ask his or her pediatrician about skin-prick testing for peanut allergy. If adding peanuts to the child’s diet early is feasible, the New England Journal of Medicine study suggests that such a strategy may prevent a peanut allergy down the line. And while the Viaskin results are still preliminary, if further research bears out these results, this approach could be a lifesaver. How long do hot flashes last?

In 1922, Howard Carter, the celebrated around the world English voyager and prehistorian, started unearthing the tomb of Tutankhamen, the fourteenth century BC Egyptian pharaoh. When he broke through the mass of the tomb, he found a strong gold sarcophagus, nourishment, superbly protected nectar, melodic instruments and, among the Pharaoh's garments, a limbless wooden middle that was unmistakably for use by the Pharaoh's tailors. Most students of history trust this to be the principal dress frame known.

More present day cases of regal dress structures incorporate Medieval English rulers and pre-upheaval French Rulers (celebrated internationally for their excess and riches). Truth be told, wherever you look in European history, where you discover riches, you discover dress structures. These were held only for the affluent; all things considered, who else could manage the cost of a tailor? It was amid the Mechanical Insurgency of the eighteenth and nineteenth hundreds of years that the dress shape wound up accessible to regular people when institutionalization and large scale manufacturing brought what used to be extravagances into the homes of the new working class.

This white collar class had cash to spend, and shops opened with mannequins in the windows and dress structures for the making of bespoke dresses and regalia for the new callings jumping up. They were frequently made of wood or strong wax, at that point later papier-mâché.

The dress shape has again gotten away from its inceptions and would now be able to be found in the homes of the numerous at-home sewers who deliver for present day markets. Dress structures are found in the craftsmanship world; an accumulation by originator Martin Margiela from 1997 highlighted a piece built to resemble a dress frame. The dress shape has been on a long excursion, from elite sovereignty to the studios of specialists and home sewers, and has left its engraving on sewing society around the world en route.

Sorts OF DRESS Structures

Evaluated at the lower end of the market, a great customizable dress shape can be purchased for $200-300. This lower cost is reflected in their poorer development materials and less practical body shapes. Highlights like collapsible shoulders and being completely pinnable for the most part aren't accessible on flexible dress structures, which can confine their utilizations and improving potential outcomes.

A mannequin can't do this current, it's a strong shell in the state of an entire human, utilized as a part of retail for beautiful purposes and showing garments.

The stepper engines were normal, nothing to awe me I would state, in spite of the fact that they carry out their activity as you would anticipate.

Presently the thing which presumably will pester you the most is the way that it just works through a parallel port. That implies you can utilize it just with a work area PC which has a parallel port on the motherboard. Furthermore, from what I know it just works with Windows XP/2000. No doubt about it, this sort of sucks as far as similarity yet considering the value these are bargains that you need to make. On the off chance that you think this is something that you wouldn't need, at that point beneath you can discover a CNC switch with a USB association.

As far as programming that you can use with this CNC switch, there is Mach 3, EMC 2 and Kcam which are for the most part exclusive despite the fact that in the event that you need something free I would suggest linuxCNC which is a ground-breaking open source programming for a wide range of ventures.

To be completely forthright I wouldn't anticipate from an all-wood casing to be made so well-made regarding roughness and quality. All parts fit exceptionally well in their spot and everything is so well to assemble that you will be astounded; similar to Ikea furniture 🙂 An extraordinary favorable position of this unit is that it incorporates every one of the parts expected to get the switch up and running.

Know that you need to purchase the mechanical parts too with a specific end goal to make this a capacity switch.

On the off chance that you are an amateur to the CNC world I wouldn't prescribe a DIY CNC unit from the begin. While it might test and interesting you may have a craving for surrendering when things don't coordinate as they should. In the event that you are nerdy enough to at present need to begin this undertaking without anyone else's input you should purchase all the required parts like a DC control supply, 3 stepper engines a shaft and that's only the tip of the iceberg. What's more, from that point onward, you may need to take the free day to make sense of how things function. I don't feel that the hardest part is gathering all parts together all things considered figuring out how to utilize the product for CNC switches. In any case, that is for another exchange.

A decent thing is that the organization made YouTube recordings showing how you can utilize the switch and some pleasant ventures that are effortlessly finished with it. Another lovely thing about it is that you can utilize an Arduino controller on the off chance that you need to make it more perfect with different ports like USB.

The materials are of good quality that will keep going for quite a while if utilized appropriately. Therefore, I prescribe that you purchase quality engines and different parts all together for the slices to be high caliber and dispense with any problem.

4. Vevor 4 Axis CNC Router

This little CNC switch from Vevor has all you have to begin cutting and etching your ventures quick and simple. It's valid, because of the size and value the functionalities are decreased yet it does well what it was intended for.

Favorable position of this machine is that it can get documents through a USB port, so you won't have the similarity issues that the past machines had with the parallel port. The stepper engines are two-stage 1.8A which is fine for ventures which are not muddled. In any case, don't expect modern outcomes with engines so little.

Something I like about it is that you can imprint or cut significantly more materials utilizing winding bits than with standard bits. A portion of the materials which strike a chord are different kinds of wood from compressed wood to hardwood, stone, and even metal. This Router is shockingly exact thinking about the cost and segments. In the event that you utilize great quality bits you may make some intrigue brings about terms of nature of the cutting/etching.

As I said in the past audit, I prescribe utilizing the open source programming called LinuxCNC in the event that you would prefer not to spend a fortune on programming like Mach 3 or AutoCAD. It's valid that the realistic interface isn't so cleaned and some propelled highlights don't exist in LinuxCNC however for little activities or instructive purposes open source programming is all that anyone could need.

I shouldn't whine about anything considering the parts however you should know my principle disappointments with this machine. The engines are frail so you should need to make a few delays in the middle of activities since they have a tendency to overheat, the control programming is a duplicate of a unique programming and the absence of constraining switches can cause a few bothers. These are the primary concerns I had however I think they are sufficiently minor not to influence the general incredible estimation of this CNC switch.

While somewhat more costly this driver is perfect in the event that you need something of extraordinary quality to control your stepper engines from your CNC switch or 3D printer. All in all stepper engine drivers are intricate charge modules so I am really astounded how shabby they have become in the course of the most recent years.
On the off chance that you are new to this area, you may ask for what reason would you require a charge module like this for an engine when you could essentially supply it with electrical power from an AC control source. That might be the situation for general engines yet stepper engines can't work except if there is a driver like this to control them. You can locate a more extensive clarification about stepper engines here.

All in all, in the event that you approve of paying a marginally higher cost for a superior exactness miniaturized scale step driver then this is the one to decide without a doubt.
