大蒜止咳


「咳嗽剋星就在家」

蒸大蒜水能止咳。但用煮,快一些。大概5.6個蒜瓣,用刀拍爛加幾塊冰糖一碗水,煮到水發白,小半碗就可以了, 要現煮現喝, 立竿見影,喝了馬上不咳嗽了,這個方法每次都管用。

天氣涼了,幼兒園老師不讓孩子吃水果,但可試試每晚把梨、銀耳、蘋果煮着讓他們吃。香蕉等大寒的水果不吃,杜絶寒涼,孩子就少生病。在中醫看來這是風邪未除的表現。

中醫所謂“溫邪上受,首先犯肺”溫邪就是中國南方人常說的風熱感冒,但是南方人體質多虛,往往熱不明顯(咽痛不太厲害)夾風寒的較多,就是感冒往往是受寒、吹風後所致,咽痛之時,多伴有咽癢的症候。大蒜色白入肺,性味辛溫,最善除肺經之風邪。故治療伴咽癢的咳嗽往往有奇效!

其用法如下,皆有所驗,選一即可!

方法一:
最簡單的就是買剝一粒大蒜,含在口中,時輕咬一下,蒜味一出,慢慢嚥下,一粒含一小時,咽癢立減,咳嗽可愈。

方法二:
取大蒜十幾瓣,搗成泥狀放入杯中,加冰糖適量,用開水沖泡,溫服當茶飲,每日1次,咳嗽嚴重者每日2次,此方具有快速止咳化痰的特效。

方法三:
蒸大蒜水:小孩咳喘時用大蒜2-3瓣,大人用7-8瓣,拍碎,放入碗中,要在碗上加蓋,再放入鍋裡去蒸,大火燒開改小火15分鐘,嚴重時可一日三次,可以不吃大蒜只喝水。第二天再蒸蒜水時就要加冰糖了,小兒放一粒,大人放二粒,大蒜性溫、入脾、胃、肺經,民間多用大蒜治療咳嗽、氣管炎、哮喘、肺結核。

方法四:
大蒜加冰糖煮水喝。孩子感冒咳嗽,效果比打針吃藥靈多了。方法用30克大蒜、10克冰糖加200毫升水,先用大火將水煮開,再用小火慢燉幾分鐘,最後熬成一小碗的量讓孩子喝下去。孩子咳嗽厲害時,早、中、晚一天共喝3次,第二天就見效,3天后就好了。

方法五:
煮生薑大蒜紅糖水:如果咳喘嚴重,白色稀痰較多,說明受寒較重,在吃上麵食療方的同時,再加上生薑、大蒜、紅糖煮的水一起吃。小兒可用生薑3片、大蒜3瓣、紅糖半勺,成人用生薑7-8片、大蒜7-8瓣,紅糖一勺,放入鍋中加水,中火燒10分鐘即可,嚴重時可一日三次。

方法六:
取三四頭大蒜,去皮後,把蒜瓣切成一個個薄片。晚上睡前將切片的蒜瓣排着放在火爐的四周邊沿上烤,第二天一早,蒜片就基本烤乾、烤黃了,但注意不要烤成焦黑的。然後把烤乾的蒜片用擀麵杖給擀碎成末,越碎越好。挖上一湯匙蒜末倒入茶杯中,再適當加上一點紅糖,倒入開水,攪拌均勻,喝下。一天喝一兩茶杯,連喝了兩三天,咳嗽就好了。

方法七:
將大蒜瓣搗成糊狀,裝入一個空藥瓶內,把瓶口對準鼻口,儘量吸嗅大蒜辛辣的味道,可視病情每天嗅聞4-5次。蒜的辛辣味變淡後可換新的蒜泥,使用的瓶不可太大,以對準兩鼻孔大小為宜。另外,也可將數枚大蒜去外皮洗淨,放入盛好蜂蜜的大瓶中,蓋好蓋後浸泡一週左右,取出食用。

方法八:
蒜敷腳心治咳嗽大蒜敷腳心對付上火、咳嗽的方法。每晚睡覺前,洗乾淨腳後,把大蒜切成薄片敷在腳心湧泉穴位上(位置在腳跟向上1/3腳掌處);然後取醫用膠布貼牢。因大蒜對皮膚有刺激,貼的時間不宜過長,所以最好早晨起床時就將其去掉。這種方法對咳嗽、流鼻血及便秘都有一定療效,連續敷7天~10天,效果會更好。可能有少數人腳心敷蒜處會起水皰,建議此時暫停敷貼,待水皰破後皮膚復原再敷貼,這樣一般就不會再起。

美國調查:看電視三小時早死風險高一倍

美國調查發現看電視三小時早死風險高一倍

商業電台

二O一四年六月廿六日 星期四

《美國心臟病學會雜誌》調查超過一萬三千名,平均年齡三十七歲的西班牙大學畢業生,發現每日看三小時電視的人,比每日看電視不到一小時的人,早死風險高出一倍。研究人員說,看電視需要長期坐下,而之前多項研究,都發現看電視時間與死亡風險有關。研究建議成人減少長期坐下、多運動,把每天看電視的時間控制在一至兩小時內。

More Coffee Lower Diabetes Risk


飲咖啡 防糖尿

左醫右醫 
– 22小時前

人類患二型糖尿病的風險極高,以一生計,男人的風險為32.8%〈約三人有一人得病〉,女人為38.5%〈約五人有二人得病〉。糖尿病如此常見,且不能根治,後患可大可小,包括中風、心臟病、失明等,因此必須盡力預防,以免患者痛苦,並造成家人及社會負擔。坊間不少糖尿病預防方法,最有證有據者,乃本欄在《吃白米可致命》一文已介紹,就是少吃米飯。但今次推介或較上次合乎人情,就是多喝咖啡。

引述最新研究報告如下:

研究:三項長達二十年的大型生活及飲食習慣觀察。發現:排除其他因素後,連續四年每日平均多飲一杯咖啡者,於往後四年,患上二型糖尿病風險較沒增加喝咖啡者,下降11%。一杯咖啡:是指一杯8安士小咖啡〈short〉,非大〈tall〉或巨〈grande〉。而且,最佳是黑咖啡淨飲,或只加少許糖、奶。

咖啡何解有效:

上述研究沒交代因由,但從其他研究得知,咖啡含有三種可防止胰島受破壞、維持胰島素分泌的成分,包括咖啡因〈Caffeine〉、咖啡酸〈Caffeic acid〉及綠原酸〈Chlorogenic acid〉。缺乏胰島素乃糖尿病成因。

引證結果可信:

上述研究結果跟從前另一項研究結果脗合,後者發現,平均每天飲四杯或以上咖啡人士,他們一生中患二型糖尿病風險,比其他人士低50%。

我的建議:毋須一下子每天喝四杯咖啡,但可考慮每日喝一、兩杯,且謹記少糖少奶少「忌廉」。

DARPA brain implant project targets memory loss


http://m.lifehealthpro.com/2014/02/07/darpa-brain-implant-project-targets-memory-loss

BY KATHLEEN MILLER | FEBRUARY 7, 2014(Bloomberg) —

The Pentagon is exploring the development of implantable probes that may one day help reverse some memory loss caused by brain injury.The goal of the project, still in early stages, is to treat some of the more than 280,000 troops who have suffered brain injuries since 2000, including in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan.The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is focused on wounded veterans, although some research may benefit others such as seniors with dementia or athletes with brain injuries, said Geoff Ling, a physician and deputy director of DARPA’s Defense Sciences office.It’s still far from certain that such work will result in an anti-memory-loss device. Still, word of the project is creating excitement after more than a decade of failed attempts to develop drugs to treat brain injury and memory loss.“The way human memory works is one of the great unsolved mysteries,” said Andres Lozano, chairman of neurosurgery at the University of Toronto. “This has tremendous value from a basic science aspect. It may have huge implications for patients with disorders affecting memory, including those with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.”At least 1.7 million people in the U.S. are diagnosed with memory loss each year, costing the nation’s economy more than $76 billion annually, according to the most recent federal health data. The Department of Veterans Affairs estimates it will spend $4.2 billion to care for former troops with brain injuries between fiscal 2013 and 2022.Brain stimulationMedtronic Inc. already sells implants used in deep brain stimulation treatment to reduce some symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and other neurological conditions. Now, DARPA officials hope to build on neuroengineering advances, such as one that helped people with limited motor functions communicate with a device, according to agency documents posted online.The Pentagon has sought research proposals from companies and organizations, asking for ideas on stimulating brain tissue to help restore memory. If the research pans out, it may attract interest from companies including General Electric Co. and International Business Machines Corp. as well as Medtronic, said Art Caplan, medical ethics director at New York University’s Langone Medical Center and an occasional DARPA adviser.Federal health regulators have already authorized Medtronic’s implant for sale in the U.S. St. Jude Medical Inc. and Boston Scientific Corp. sell similar devices overseas and are seeking U.S. approval.The memory project is part of President Barack Obama’s BRAIN initiative, which funds research that seeks to find treatments for some of the most common brain disorders, such as Alzheimer’s and brain injury.DARPA is seeking to develop a portable, wireless device that “must incorporate implantable probes” to record and stimulate brain activity, according to documents posted online. Those submitting proposals were instructed to specify the number, size, spacing, weight and power requirements of the probes in their proposals, as well as what areas of the brain would be targeted and the surgical procedures used to implant the devices.The existing Medtronic product to treat Parkinson’s uses a surgically implanted device consisting of thin wires that carry a signal to electrodes that “deliver stimulation to the brain.” Some of the wires are implanted inside the brain, while the rest are placed under the scalp. The electrical impulses are powered by a product located under the skin in the upper chest area, according to the company’s website.The DARPA initiative isn’t designed to recover the type of memories used to recall a person’s name. Instead, it would help wounded warriors recover “task-based motor skills” necessary for “life or livelihood,” Ling said.DARPA has a history of supporting programs that have led to commercial success. DARPA’s work contributed to the creation of the Internet and stealth fighter jets. Its long-shot, far-out projects now under development include “geckskin,” part of a program designed to help soldiers climb walls like lizards, and robotic pack mules capable of carrying gear.–With assistance from Robert Langreth in New York.

多走2000步 降低心血管病風險法新社 – 2013年12月20日星期五(法新社巴黎20日電) 根據今天公布的研究,葡萄 糖耐受不良的民眾,只要每天多走2000步,即可降低心 臟病猝發或中風的危險。葡萄糖耐受不良會引發罹患糖 尿病和心血管疾病。 這是針對40國9300多名罹患葡萄糖耐受不良(IGT )成年人所做的實驗結果,受訪者為心血管疾病患者或 或是這類疾病的高危險群。 他們都接受「調整生活型態方案」,這些方案建議 受試者減輕體重、減少食物含脂量,並定期運動。 研究人員也發放計步器給受試者,計算1週內的步 數,測量時間點為實驗一開始以及12個月後。 受試者只要每日多走2000步,也就是適度散步約20 分鐘,在6年後研究結束時,即可降低罹患心血管疾病 風險8%。 這項刊登在英國醫學雜誌「刺胳針」(The Lancet )的研究指稱,目前約3.44億人(占全球總人口7.9%) 有葡萄糖耐受不良症,推算到2030年時,人數可能增至 4.72億人(占全球總人口8.4%)。 研究主筆、英國列斯特大學(University of Leicester)的葉茨(Thomas Yates)在新聞稿中說: 「葡萄糖耐受不良者罹患心血管疾病風險較高。」 「若干研究結果顯示,體能活動與葡萄糖耐受不良 者的健康有關,不過這是首個量化步行活動改變能影響 疾病風險的研究。」(譯者:中央社王黛麗)

中風是有徵兆,若能辨識其症狀,並讓患者在三小時之内接受醫療,便減低患者腦部受損範圍。

請向患者作下列四個簡單要求:

1. 要求患者笑一下,[簡稱S](留意面部,是否有一邊肌肉垂下或不自然抽動。)

2. 要求患者說一句簡單的句子,[簡稱T] (要有條理,有連貫性),例如:今天天氣晴朗。

3. 要求患者舉起雙手,[簡稱R]。

4. 要求患者伸出舌頭,如果舌頭「彎曲」或偏向一邊,那也是中風的徵兆。

上面四個動作,如患者不能完成以上簡單動作,請立刻求醫,並告之醫護人員。
