iSmile Orthodontics in Redmond WA Offers Enhanced Invisalign Treatment Expertise

REDMOND, Wash., Sept. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Orthodontist Dr. Sepi Torkan at iSmile Orthodontics (orthodontistredmond.com) offers a variety of orthodontic treatment options, including Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional metal braces. The clear aligners are hard to detect with the naked eye, allowing patients to receive orthodontic treatment without being self conscious with traditional metal braces.

While an orthodontist specializes in tooth movement and jaw development, they are not the only dental professionals who can become certified Invisalign providers. In fact, a general dentist can simply take a brief course and become an Invisalign provider in just a few hours.

By comparison, an orthodontist must graduate near the top of their class in dental school, then continue on for another 2-3 years to complete a specialty program in orthodontics. All orthodontists are

Do Collagen Supplements Actually Work? Experts Give Us the Scoop

Do Collagen Supplements Actually Work? Experts Give Us the Scoop

Here’s the science behind those popular pills, powders, and gummies.

Despite what you may have heard, people with dark skin need to wear sunscreen, and shaving your hair won’t make it grow back thicker. In Myth Busters, we debunk common beauty misconceptions and set the record straight.

Most of us will do just about anything to get firmer skin, longer hair, and stronger nails. So it’s no surprise that when collagen supplements—in the form of powders, pills, liquids, and gummies—were marketed as being able to do things like plump up sagging skin, diminish wrinkles, and make our hair and nails healthier, they became popular fast. But if you think about it, how can something you ingest internally have such drastic effects on your external appearance? We’re already aware of topical creams and lotions that profess anti-aging properties, but

Canada’s COVID-19 Vaccine Task Force needs better transparency about potential conflicts of interest

Hopefully there will soon be a vaccine for COVID-19. In fact, there may be more than one. Once there is, Canada will probably spend hundreds of millions of dollars, if not billions, on the vaccine or vaccines.

Samples from volunteers are handled in the laboratory at Imperial College in London, on July 30, 2020. Imperial College is working on the development of a COVID-19 vaccine.

In August, the federal government signed deals with two United States vaccines producers, Novavax and Johnson & Johnson, to purchase tens of millions of doses of their vaccines should they prove to be successful. In September, further deals were concluded with Pfizer, Moderna, GlaxoSmithKline/Sanofi and AstraZeneca.

Public acceptance of any vaccine will depend on how confident the public is that the best decisions have been made about which vaccines to ultimately use. If it looks like decisions are based on advice

People’s Community Clinic celebrates 50 years of bringing dignity to care – Entertainment & Life – Austin American-Statesman

“We were hippies,” says Barbara Davis. They were anti-establishment, bend the rules, roll up your sleeves and get things done without infringing on anyone else’s rights kind of people.

Picture a medical clinic with a handful of long-haired doctors, nurses and a social worker in a church basement. Mattresses on the floor served as the waiting room chairs; sheets hanging from the ceiling delineated the different exam rooms. A card table served as the front desk.

The staff members put in their own money to buy the supplies or rounded up free samples to start what was then called the People’s Free Clinic in 1970.

They opened up the clinic one night a week for a handful of hours. That first night, the accounts differ, but Davis thinks they had about 27 people come through the basement clinic they set up at Congregational Church off 23rd Street near the University

Do collagen supplements work? They may benefit your skin, joint, and bone health

  • Collagen supplements may benefit the health of your skin, joints, and bones.
  • In fact, some studies have found that taking a hydrolyzed collagen supplement each day can boost the skin’s elasticity and hydration.
  • Collagen supplementation can also be helpful in the treatment of bone diseases like osteoporosis.
  • This article was reviewed by Jason R. McKnight, MD, MS, a family medicine physician and clinical assistant professor at Texas A&M College of Medicine.

As you age, you start to produce less collagen — a protein that helps give structure to your tendons, bones, and skin. Lower levels of collagen can lead to painful joints and aging skin.

That’s why people turn to supplements to replenish lost collagen. But more research is still needed to determine how well collagen supplements actually work.

Here’s what researchers know so far about collagen supplements and under what circumstances they may be effective.Advertisement

Raymond James Predicts Over 100% Rally for These 3 Stocks

After a volatile September, the roller coaster hasn’t ended in October. We had a pleasant surprise for investors, when S&P 500 climbed back above 3,400 to start the month. However, markets didn’t like President Trump’s COVID diagnosis, and the resulting drop. The President is out of the hospital, but now the White House and Congressional Democrats are unable to reach agreement on an economic stimulus package. The combination of good news and bad news makes the markets an intriguing mix of risk and reward. Weighing in on current market conditions, Raymond James strategist Tavis C. McCourt noted: “Although there is a lot of noise in the market, fiscal relief likely trumps other variables as a $1.5+ trillion fiscal relief package would likely secure an improving earnings trend through next summer (vaccine), would limit the need for increased state/local taxes,

Gut Microbiome Plays a Role in How Prostate Cancer Patients Respond to Oral Therapies

Gut Microbiome Plays a Role in How Prostate Cancer Patients Respond to Oral Therapies

Bacteria in the gut may play a role in the treatment outcomes of patients with prostate cancer taking oral medications, according to a study published in Nature Communications.

The results from the study showed that since the drug abiraterone acetate is metabolized by bacteria in the gut that help to both reduce harmful organisms and promote helpful ones, the authors suspect that the microbiome influences patients’ responses to medications.

“Research is beginning to uncover the ways in which the human microbiome influences cancer development, progression, and treatment,” said Brendan Daisley, a PhD candidate at Western’s Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry who is conducting research at Lawson, in a press release. “Our study highlights a key interaction between a cancer drug and the gut microbiome that results in beneficial organisms with anti-cancer properties.”

Jacqueline Wilson: ‘Children’s literature has the power to create social change’

It’s not the easiest job in the world, interviewing a recluse author in the midst of the pandemic, who lives in an area you’d “have to dig a trench for hundreds of yards” to hook up to wifi (rural Sussex).

Despite the recent release of her latest novel, Jacqueline Wilson has just been on holiday, and insists any self-PR must fit around the post-holiday, pre-lockdown rush of optician and dentist appointments. I interview her remotely, in the spaces between.

She’s no diva, though. Jacqueline’s simple life hasn’t really felt the tremors of lockdown: “I read, I write, I daydream, I walk the dog, I watch a box set in the evening with a glass of wine.” It hasn’t been lonely as she lives with her partner of 18 years “and luckily we get on very well together.” This is the nature of all
