Health Technology Assessment (4) – Transparency

In highlights from his 2008 presentation, Dr. Michael Drummond of the University of York and the London School of Economics discusses his NPC-funded analysis of the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), the comparative effectiveness review entity in the U.K., and his conclusions regarding the implications for the United States.

In this video, Drummond says there is a clear need for transparency and sufficient time to comment on guidance documents. However, there are ways to appeal NICE decisions, many of which have been successful.

Miracle Mom with Broken Neck Delivers Baby

On Feb. 11, 2009, Tanja Rose gave birth to a healthy baby girl. While almost 4,000 babies are born each year at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, what makes Tanja’s story so extraordinarily special is she gave birth while being in a halo (a metal frame screwed into the skull used to restrict head and neck movement after a fracture or neck fusion) something doctors say has never been done before.

Nutrition and Your Mental Health
What does nutrition have to do with mental health? You might be surprised to find out the truth behind what happens when a person has a nutritional deficiency.

Nutritional deficiencies can cause all sorts of psychiatric symptoms including apathy, low energy, irritability, insomnia, low energy, agitation, fatigue, concentration problems, aches and pains, weight changes, including weight loss or weight gain. Sound a lot like the symptoms of depression? The truth is the average American diet of fast food is low in vital nutrition that you need for your body to function correctly.

This isn’t to say that all depression is caused by bad nutrition but it’s certainly a contributing factor in many cases and poor nutrition will always make depression worse. Antidepressant drugs also do not correct nutritional problems. So if your depressed because of nutritional problems an antidepressant will only partially cover up the problem and you body still won’t function correctly.

NutriShield gives you a unique combination of:

Carotenoids incl. Lutein and Lycopene
Soy Isoflavones
Flavonoids incl. Green Tea and Grapeseed
