Opening paragraph:

‘For the first time, scientists at Caltech have induced natural sensations in the arm of a paralyzed man by stimulating a certain region of the brain with a tiny array of electrodes. The patient has a high-level spinal cord lesion and, besides not being able to move his limbs, also cannot feel them. The work could one day allow paralyzed people using prosthetic limbs to feel physical feedback from sensors placed on these devices.’

How to Ease the Pain of Colonoscopy  |   Michael Greger M.D. FACLM   nutritionfacts.org  |  5 April 2018

About the author >>>

Very good thought process producing a very good question because I use it anways for similar purposes.

So why don’t they use peppermint oil as a natural way to calm the spasming which causes the pain?

I’ve had 2 sigmoidoscopies rather than colonoscopies and I believe that this treatment would also work for that.   Both times I had a procedure done at the same time.  The first one they removed 3 polyps the second they banded internal hemorrhoids

I use peppermint a lot as a treatment for my bowel / digestive disorders and find it helps a lot.  Some people actually take peppermint capsules daily as a way to help with IBS as well for instance, which I have also used it for.

I also underwent STARR procedure 5 years ago and it could have helped then as well, don’t know why I didn’t think of it myself.

Personally, I think that it will have a lot to do with no-one being willing to accredit it as a treatment because it will be seen as a homeopathic remedy!

I was super excited to hear this after Ronny told me about how we almost met in Barcelona at the @eyeforpharma event because of his involvement within the video.  However, he was busy at the ENETS 2018, also in Barca, the week before, where he’d been sponsored by INCA, and couldn’t make it.

Excellent achievement!

Our mission is to make pharma more open and valued.
The ultimate driver for the pharmaceutical industry’s health is meeting the needs of patients, otherwise it will cease to matter. For healthcare to be as good as it could be, the strength, skills and resources of our industry need to be fully integrated into health outcomes and we need pharma experience at the decision-making table.

Every morning and evening I was posting several links to a variety of online newspapers and thought that maybe I could post twice a day from here, our website/blog, Morning and Evening Post instead.

This is to ensure that all the news and stories go out to everyone that follows us across the social media platforms that we have profiles/accounts.

Here’s a few links to my favourite online newspapers for finding a variety of health related news from other Chronic Illness Bloggers & Warriors, for up to date news about health conditions such as latest research papers or people sharing hints and tips about how they cope day-to-day.

Let us help them by showing our support by sharing the news and stories that they share.
