Endometriosis is a condition where there are implants of tissue that resemble the cells found in the endometrium (lining of the uterus), outside of the uterus. These cells are stimulated in the same way that the endometrium is monthly, and the same release of blood and inflammatory and other mediators occurs on or within the structures these implants are located. This then triggers a cascade of inflammation and stimulation of nerves and central nervous system which results in a myriad of symptoms that can be cyclic (related to menses) or acyclic (unrelated to menses). The symptoms tend to become progressively worse and involve other organ systems, such as the gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract, etc. Dr. Laurence Orbuch Medical Director of GYN Laparoscopic Associates in Los Angeles California talks with Mark Alyn on this edition.

The key to creating magic in the real world lies in the equations of quantum physics. Fortunately, like using modern cars or personal computers, we do not need to understand these equations to benefit from them. So, do not worry if the previous discussion of quantum physics did not make sense to you. The more often you are exposed to these concepts, the more sense they will make, and it is not necessary to understand any of this to get amazing benefits from using the Formula for Miracles. Quantum physics tells us that truly anything is possible, and just because something is in one place at one time means only that it is likely to still be there in the future. Nothing is certain, and anything can happen! Brent visits with Mark Alyn on this edition of Late Night Health.

Thanks to revolutionary technological advances we are living longer, and perhaps as an outcome of those same advances, are having less children. The math is simple - more older adults and less working hands. Those in long term care have heard the alarm bells for decades, and with 9 out of 10 seniors preferring to age at home, this trend is not likely to reverse or slow down. This raises the question, how can we match supply to demand, and not compromise on quality of care? This is the question keeping homecare agency owners up at night, and should worry us as well because hey, one day we'll all be there too. Enter the solution. Thanks to an Israeli startup that is rapidly growing in the US homecare space, those who are aging in place now have access to an extra layer of comfort and care, even during hours when the human caregiver is not present. This new model puts forward a hybrid, holistic solution which blends targeted in-person care hours with 24/7 remote virtual support. Sensi's Head of Clinical Development, Miki Rossanis, speaks with Mark about Sensi.AI and advances in AgeTech here.

Once considered a regional issue, tick season, which officially takes place between April and October, is now a national concern due to the migration of these insects and the frequency in which people travel and opt for outdoor adventures. Although Lyme disease is the most known tick-borne disease, it is not the only tick-borne pathogen out there, which is why NJ Labs recommends testing for other tick-borne pathogens including: Rickettsiosis, a spotted fever, or Ehrlichiosis, a potential breathing and blood disorder.“When it comes to finding ticks, people worry most about Lyme disease and as a result, the market focus is on promoting Lyme disease testing. However, other tick species carry different types of tick-borne pathogens that can be just as dangerous to your health,” said Sandra Lee, CEO of NJ Labs whose analytical testing lab offers tick collection testing kits under the name Tick SURE. “Our tick collection testing kit is designed to avoid expensive, in-person lab visits by giving broad-range, quick results at a reduced cost.”Deer ticks are the only ticks that carry Lyme disease, however, there are many other tick species that can also cause virus-like symptoms including headaches, fever, fatigue, chills and muscle aches. If a tick has bitten you or your pet, Lee says you should make sure that the tick is tested for the most common tick-borne pathogens, in addition to Lyme disease, using a DNA-based method to test with a higher specificity.“It's important to know the bug that bit you,” says Lee. “This old adage is especially true when it comes to tick bites, because when you know the specific species of the bug that bit you, you can test for every tick-borne pathogen known to that species, not just Lyme disease. This way you are covering every possible compromised health issue.”As an advocate for consumer safety, Lee can provide an insider's look at testing practices and the nuances of what the science behind testing actually requires in order to make every-day consumer products safe. As a scientist and one of the few female CEOs in the analytical testing industry, Lee has a passion for chemistry and how it influences multiple aspects of our daily lives.Biography: Sandra Lee is CEO of NJ Labs, a nationally recognized provider and advocate for quality in chemistry and microbiology testing that serves the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, dietary supplement, cosmetic, cannabis/CBD, dairy and food industries.
