A FEW WEIRD SHOES OF THE DAY BROUGHT TO YOU BY DR. JOHN A. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS.

 

 


 

RESEARCHERS ARE LOOKING FOR BETTER WAYS TO TREAT EBOLA BUT ARE ALSO TRYING TO FING A QUICK TEST TO DETERMINE IF SOMEONE HAS CONTRACTED THE DISEASE.  THIS COULD BE VERY IMPORTANT FOR WEST AFRICA WHERE IT CAN TAKE DAYS FOR A SAMPLE TO TRAVEL TO THE TESTING LABS.  RAPID TEST COULD BE DONE AT AIRPORTS WHICH WOULD BE MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE THAN TAKING PEOPLES TEMPERATURE.


 

AS REPORTED IN THE NEW YORK TIMES, MOST PEOPLE ASSOCIATE VIRUSES WITH EBOLA, INFLUENZA AND OTHER DISEASES SUCH AS AIDS.  MOST PEOPLE ARE UNAWARE THAT OUR BODIES ARE HOME TO TRILLIONS OF VIRUSES AND SOME OF THEM MAY ACTUALLY BE KEEPING US HEALTHY.

KEN CADWELL, AN IMMUNOLOGIST AT NEYW YORK UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE STATES, " VIRUSES HAVE GOTTEN A BAD RAP AS THEY DON'T ALWAYS CAUSE DISEASE."  DR. CADWELL FIRST DISCOVERED THE HEALING POWER OF VIRUSES BY ACCIDENT WHILE STUDYING THE MICROBIOME, THE COMMUNITY OF 100 TRILLION MICROBES LIVING IN OUR BODY AND WHICH SCIENTIST HAVE LONG KNOWN THAT THEY VERY IMPORTANT FOR OUR HEALTH AND WELL BEING.

APPARENTLY ON OF THE MOST CRUCIAL ROLES IS FOR THE NORMAL DEVELOPMENT OF OUR GUT.  WHEN MICE WERE RAISED IN GERM-FREE ENVIRONMENTS, THERE INTESTINES DID NOT DEVELOP PROPERLY AND THEY WERE PRONE TO INJURY AND DISEASE.

AT THE PRESENT TIME RESEARCHERS ARE LOOKING FOR WHICH VIRUSES ARE THE ONES THAT KEEP US HEALTHY.

DR. JOHN A. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS PRESENTED 3 SCHOLARSHIPS FOR $1,500.00 TO THE TOP STUDENT IN EACH OF THE 3 YEARS OF THE CHIROPODY PROGRAM.  THIS IS THE FIRST YEAR FOR THIS AWARD.  I NOW HAVE 6 CHIROPODISTS EMPLOYED AT MY FOOT CLINIC AND WE ARE EXTREMELY SUCCESSFUL AND WOULD LIKE TO GIVE SOMETHING BACK..  ALL OF THE CHIROPODISTS WHOM I EMPLOY ARE GRADUATES OF THE MICHENER CHIROPODY PROGRAM.  WE HAVE JUST RECENTLY EXPANDED OUR FOOT CLINIC AND ARE HOPING TO HIRE MORE CHIROPODISTS SOON.

PODIATRIST, DR. FRANK SPINOSA, PRESIDENT OF THE AMERICAN PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION (APMA) STATES, "A DIABETES DIAGNOSIS CAN BE DAUNTING, BUT A SIMPLE ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT CAN MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE IN HOW WELL YOU FARE WHILE LIVING WITH THE DISEASE.  BY PROACTIVELY TAKING STEPS TO MONITOR KEY HEALTH INDICATORS, EXPERTS AGREE THAT IT'S POSSIBLE TO PREVENT SOME OF THE SEVERE RISKS OF DIABETES, INCLUDING LOWER LIMB AMPUTATION."
