It has been called Akasha, Logos, the primordial OM, the music of the spheres, the Higgs field, dark energy, and a thousand other names throughout history. The vibratory field is at the root of all true spiritual experience and scientific investigation. It is the same field of energy that saints, Buddhas, yogis, mystics, priests, shamans and seers, have observed by looking within themselves.
Sleep apnea Asthma What about asthma? Is it a symptom of reflux? Their symptoms are due to reactive airway disease secondary to airway reflux. Under development are new diagnostic tests that are specific for airway reflux and utilize pepsin as a marker.
The author currently uses a combination of diagnostics. The RSI a nine-item, symptom severity scale is completed by the patient, and it is a validated reflux outcomes instrument29 Table 4.
Theoretically, the RFS can be calculated on the fly during a visual laryngoscopy; however, grading the RFS after the examination is completed from an archived laryngeal image is preferred, and that image should show the larynx in abduction, not adduction.
This grading system was developed using images obtained by transnasal flexible laryngoscopy TFLand TFL is the preferred examination. The RFS is a weighted nine-item scoring system devised by the author in and subsequently reported. In addition, when calculated at each visit, it is an excellent parameter to evaluate the effectiveness of therapy.
Patients who are successfully treated will have a normal less that 4 RFS. Below are descriptive parameters for each of the nine items: Pseudosulcus vocalis refers to subglottic edema that gives the vocal fold the appearance of being three-dimensional, almost having the appearance of an open hotdog bun.
The normal non-swollen, non-inflamed vocal fold appears to be a two-dimensional structure. Pseudosulcus is a finding usually associated with reflux and diffuse laryngeal edema.
A finding of pseudosulcus gets two points in the RFS system. After Treatment Ventricular obliteration.
The ventricle is a grove-like structure or recess between the true and false vocal folds. When it is normal and open, the ventricular band is sharp and the depth of the ventricle glistens.
If, however, both the true and false folds are swollen, the ventricle can be partly or completely obliterated. Partial ventricular obliteration scores two points, and complete ventricular obliteration scores four points in the RFS.
The case, Figure 2-A, shows partial ventricular obliteration that resolves after treatment Figure 2-B.
Erythema, the third item, is graded two points for red arytenoids and four points for diffuse laryngeal erythema.
In reality, erythema is grossly overcalled. The main finding of LPR is edema not erythema. The normal vascularity of the posterior larynx will vary a lot depending upon the brightness of the light source. Vocal fold edema is graded as follows:Cures, Health & Wellbeing.
For similar reasons as with supressed science, there are important facts and simple treatments for many dis .
BPA (bisphenol-A) is a chemical that is added to many commercial products, including food containers and hygiene products. It was first discovered in the s, but chemists in the s realized. Denmark has banned BPA in all baby food products, and the Japanese canning industry has replaced its BPA-containing resin can liners.
The U.S. still allows BPA in baby bottles, but 11 U.S. states have prohibited the use of BPA in children's products. It’s been a while since we heard news about Brazilian Blowout, the controversial hair straightening treatment that brings up the philosophical question “What does it mean to be formaldehyde?”.
But now the company has announced a new hair straightening product, Brazilian Blowout Zero, that is formulated without methylene glycol. Environmental Policy. We’re tracking Congressional Research Service reports in this topic area. The list of brands containing BPA includes household names such as Progresso, Hormel and Del Monte, as well as more specialized or regional brands.
Products that do not use BPA in can lining.
