  • Childhood Depression Study 2014

    Childhood Depression

    Depression is the most common mental health problem in the US, and children are not immune. Depression is not a transient sad mood or irritability.  A depressed child is has feelings that are pervasive, lasting for weeks, or longer. It is critical parents understand the signs and symptoms of childhood depression and the opportunities afforded to them.  A depressed child demonstrates significant changes in behavior and ability to function, and may also show:

    • Low self-esteem or feeling worthless. They may say, “I’m bad. I’m stupid. No one likes me.”
    • Little interest in activities they previously enjoyed.
    • Changes in sleep, concentration and appetite.
    • Anger, Rage or they may say “I Wish I’d never been born!”
  • Fibromyalgia Clinical Trial

    Fibromyalgia

    Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition identified by widespread pain in the muscles, ligaments and tendons, as well as fatigue and multiple tender points on the body. Often, just the slightest pressure causes pain. Although no one knows what causes fibromyalgia pain, many medical experts think that fibromyalgia could be related to a variety of different causes including sleep disturbances, abnormalities of the nervous system, stress, changes in muscle metabolism, or hormonal changes.  Some symptoms include:

    • Stiffness
    • Tenderness
    • Fatigue
    • Trouble sleeping
  • Depression Study – June 2014

    Depression Study

    Is Depression just “all in your head?” The answer is yes, but physiologically rather than psychologically. Science has shown that the brain chemistry responsible for mood regulation, thinking, sleep, and behavior functions differently in people who suffer from Depression compared to those who don’t. The brain has illnesses that make people sick just like every other organ system, and Depression is one of those illnesses. Since Depression has a physiologic basis, it can be effectively treated with medication. However, not everyone responds to initial treatment, so we still need to develop novel treatment options.

  • Chronic Idiopathic Constipation Study
    At one time or another, most people have experienced constipation categorized by:

    • Bowel movements < 3 time a week
    • Hard stools, excess straining, and sense of incomplete evacuation in >25% of bowel motions
    • Abdominal pain, bloating or discomfort
    • In severe cases, a need may exist to use a finger to facilitate passage of stools

    It becomes Chronic Idiopathic Constipation when the symptoms are persistent (greater than 3 months), and the cause is unknown and not related to an underlying illness or medication.
