People with diabetes who exercise regularly have better control over their blood glucose levels and fewer complications such as heart disease and stroke (Tai Chi for Health Institute).

Volatile anesthetics can alter the dopaminergic balance in the brain, but whether they exacerbate PD is unknown. Propofol produces both dyskinesias and ablation of resting tremor, suggesting that it has both excitatory and inhibitory effects in this patient population. But both volatile agents as well as propofol has been successfully to sedate patients with PD during deep brain stimulation surgery. Dexmeditomidine appears to be safe and when used in deep brain stimulation surgery has advantage of not interfering with motor symptoms. Ketamine should be used with caution because of potential interaction between levodopa and ketamine’s sympathomimetic activity.
“The concept of Qi is based on the ancient Chinese initial understanding of natural phenomena.” (Acuhealing.com, 2011) People in ancient China observed that some visible and touchable substances in nature would transform into another invisible and formless substances, namely water transform into fog under evaporation. The observation drives them realize the existence of qi. Besides, in the Yin-yang theory, they believe that all the things are in yin and yang cooperation system, and have yin side and yang side. And when yin embrace yang in a balanced way can soften qi’s movement and calm any possible fluctuation. Accordingly and based on observation and investigation accumulate by hundreds of years, generally speaking, rather than just air, gas or flowing, qi is a key, vital form of energy, significantly motivating the earth and
After achieving this success the scientists and doctor closely examined the patients who have undergone chelation therapy for the removal of toxic materials from the body. After this close examination, some doctors found that patients started showing improvements and pain decreased which occurred due to their blocked arteries. The scientist then concluded that the chelation therapy is the reason behind this development and that chelation therapy can prove extremely helpful in fight against various types of heart illnesses. However, a few scientists contradicted and have doubts about this therapy. The doctors who supported chelation therapy considered that EDTA was catching the calcium that caused the blocked arteries.
Each antianginal drugs can be classified into one or more drug classes. These drugs are used to manage angina by improving perfusion of the heart muscle and they also reduce the metabolic demands of the heart muscle. The two main groups of antianginal drugs are organic nitrates and calcium antagonists because they are vasodilators and improve heart muscle perfusion and reduce the metabolic demands of the heart muscle. There are three classes of drugs to treat angina and may be used to treat other conditions as determined by a
Counseling is the personal aid in solving problems. It is an effective technique for stopping dependence by referring to advice from an expert about ways to stop and avoid drug use.

Pharmacological treatment involves medications such as Marinol, a synthetic version of THC, and Sativex, a pharmaceutical cannabis extract.
Piria’s discovery of salicin led to further discoveries of the use of the compound and eventually to the synthesis of aspirin in 1893 by Felix Hoffman.For thousands of years, herbalists have looked to nature in order to solve various ailments. Although ancient people had difficulties finding the correct dose of herbal medicines for various ailments, their failures and successes aided future generations in discoveries that piggy-backed on the ideas of their predecessors. The use of willow has evolved since our ancestors first discovered it, and it is now used to derive medicines that are able to treat and prevent modern diseases (Mahdi et al.
The type of therapeutic that is not considered as a part of medical treatment has known as alternative medicine (A.M). Many people prefer that type of medicine because they feel that is a good way to get better and Cancer patient like it in spite of radiation therapy. ¹Marceline, Lindsey, Nelson, and Gail A. Showed the six type of medicine (2005). First type is Traditional alternative medicine examples Acupuncture, Naturopathy, and Chinese medicine.
They also believe that the two factors that can lead to depresion are the neurologic argument and the genetic argument. We know that the brain functions by sending chemical messages from neurons to neurons using neurotransmitters such as Serotonin ( which release a chemical that helps a person to be calm) and Noradrenaline ( body's initial stress response) . The lack of this chemical messages, according to biological approach, is one of the reasons that lead a person to depression. The cure for the depression, according to the biological approach, is the use of chemical medicines such as Prozac (works by increasing the availability of the mood chemical serotonin) and Effexor (targets serotonin and
In contrary, the antagonist drugs act as the blocker the way of the body’s natural agonist and also they avoid cell response to agonist. However, these two totally different target receptors can actually be used together. For example, in the case of Asthma. In the respiratory tract, albuterol will stick to the adrenergic receptors so the smooth muscle will relax and expand the airways, also known as bronchodilation. At the same time, the antagonist drugs, ipratropium, attaches to cholinergic receptors and obstruct the attachment of acetylcholine and limit the airways which called bronchoconstriction.
Verapamil is useful in treating and preventing chest pains which were caused from contraction of the coronary arteries that reduces the flow of blood to the heart. Relaxing muscles in the arteries in the body lowers blood pressure and reduces the pressure against the heart. As a result, the heart is allowed to work less and requires less oxygen-carrying blood. Verapamil also decreases the conduction of electrical impulses through the heart that control the coordination of contraction (which creates the spasms) (Verapamil, Calan, Verelan, Isoptin: Drug Facts, Side Effects and Dosing. (n.d.).
Secondly, antidepressants have become cost friendly, as Prozac is now available in genetic form. Although, psychotherapy can help depressed patients siggnificantly, the biomedical approach seems more appropriate for depression.
