I would assume diabetes, because of diet.

Is there a type of Yoga that simulates the effect of a chiropractic adjustment?

I'm curious if anyone knows if there is a certain kind of yoga that specifically helps individual with bad backs, and if this yoga, when practiced, has similiar effects to receiving an adjustment from a chiropractor? (complete with the cracking of the spine?)

Yoga or other types of exercise may very well complement a chiropractic adjustment, but it would not be a substitute for a quality chiropractic adjustment. The stretching and strengthening of muscles would help in allowing an adjustment to "hold" for longer if the exercises are done correctly. Performing exercises improperly or over-doing it could have the reverse effect. I hope this helps.  (+ info)

What are the different types of dual disorders?

We have an assignment about dual disorders and I have to find some information about it. I need to know the different types of dual disorders and their effects on the person. I really need to do well in this assignment. I want to get an A for this. Please help me. Thanks a bunch.

First of all, dual disorders are composed of a mental illness and a substance abuse. The mental illness may be bipolar disorder, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, anxiety disorder, personality disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia or phobias. The co-occurring problem may be alcohol or drug abuse. I'll just add some links that will give you additional information about the specific types of dual disorders. Good luck with the assignment and I do hope you get an A.  (+ info)

Of all the eating disorders what is the worst for your body?

This is a question I've always wondered. The disorders I am talking about are:
Starving yourself
Exercising too much
Making yourself vomit
Taking laxatives

Which is the worst for your health? I know obviously overeating can kill you but any of the above in excess can kill you. I just wonder which is hardest on the body.

Starving yourself (anorexia), eventually you cant have kids, your hair will drop out and so will your teeth. A lot of anorexics never recover from being that way. Its a mental illness as are all eating disorders and there are a lot of underlying causes besides the getting thin issue. Taking laxatives can do permanent damage to the bowel. Vomiting (Bulimia) can do permanent damage to the throat and stomach. Overeating can cause blood pressure issues and heart problems but so too can any of the above. Exercising too much will cause stress and strain on the body as a whole but usually the body will control this by giving you injuries to slow you down. Still, some marathon runners suffer heart attacks.  (+ info)

What do you all think of personality disorders?

A lot of people think they may have personality disorders, But when it comes to doctors, they make a careful diagnosis. In actualality, people's symptoms fit in to a bunch of different "labels" Do you agree that doctors may be over diagnosing people with personality disorders?

I have many years of experience as a therapist in the mental health field and can affirm the reluctance of insurance companies to authorize treatment for personality disorders. However, in most reports I see, the presence of a personality disorder is noted if the clinician believes it's there.

I don't see clinicians as prone to either under or over diagnose personality disorders, but I am sure there are some practice settings where that happens. Bottom line is that the DSM IV TR spells out the criteria for meeting the various personality disorder clusters, and you use those guidelines in making decisions. If the clinician is lazy and relies on instinct or impression to diagnose, rather than use the criteria, well, that's just not being very thorough  (+ info)

What is the link between atheletes/models/etc and binge-eating disorders?

I read somewhere that atheletes and models- or any other professionals whose bodies are on "public display on a frequent basis"- notably struggle with binge-eating disorders where they rapidly and excessively consume foods at certain periods of time, usually due to depression, anxiety, boredom, etc.

It seems sort of odd to me that this is the case, considering atheletes and models are usually very slender.

What do you guys think are some of the links?

You are asking about two very different groups of people.

When it comes to elite level athletes, yes, there are certain sports where eating disorders are a big problem. It has less to do with "bodies on display" than with "if I lose 5 kg I'll shave 5 seconds off my time" or similar. You can, for example, look into ski jumping, where a minimum BMI has been set due to jumpers losing as much weight as they can - to unhealthy low lovels - to be able to fly further on their jumps.

Models are on public display, but they also have to maintain a certain body type as their role is a living hanger for the clothes. Unlike with (most) athletes, models can and do use illicit drugs to keep their weight down.

Now there will be binging and purging in both groups, but I do not know to what extent it exists.  (+ info)

How many personality disorders can a person have?

I am just curious,l how many personality disorders can one person have? Can someone have borderline, narcissistic, and paranoid personality disorders at the same time? Or more even?
I know some of them have qualities that relate somewhat but if the person meets the criteria entirely for more than one of them do doctors diagnose them with multiple disorders?


A person will only be diagnosed with on personality disorder. If they have traits of several they will be diagnosed PD NOS or given a cluster diagnosis.
A person that has both Borderline and Narcissistic traits is most likely an anti-social PD.  (+ info)

What are some dermatological genital disorders?

I have oral and genital sores that test negatively for any STD's. I've read a little about Behcet's disease and am researching other genital skin disorders.

I just typed in my search bar "derrmatological genital disorders" and went to site #1 - Genital Skin Problems.Derrm.Net NZ. They have a whole list of genital disorders that you can click onto and they also show pictures. I looked at Behcet's disease and it stated that in the U.S. only about 1 in 20,000 get that disease and it also showed photos. Why don't you go to this site and look up each one. Maybe you can find out what you have. I hope this helps you. Good Luck!  (+ info)

Do some chiropractors make patients undress before making adjustment?

Someone told me they went to a chiropractor and was told to undress to underwear before they got an adjustment. Then they went to another chiropractor and took off their clothes and looked like an idiot. So some chiros ask you to undress as a normal part of the adjusting process?

Every office is different - I worked in Europe where everybody disrobes with no gown and sometimes take the bra off too, and in the US where often you treat through clothes of course.
Disrobing has its merits of course - I've had patients forget to tell me about serious surgeries I only saw because I made them disrobe before I treated them.
Just ask the front desk what to do.
Of course every professional has its bad apples and if you think the DC is a perve tell someone, but normally they'll do whatever you feel comfortable with, and of course they'll let you wear a gown if you want too.  (+ info)
