Thread on #Magnesium and why it is fundamental for our #health. #micronutrients
..many people debate the various ratios of #macronutrients like #protein, #fat, and #carbohydrates in their diet to find their optimal health. Which is great as we are #bioindividuals but most miss out on #micronutrients like #vitamins and #minerals.
The way our bodies are able to use the #macronutrients is fully dependent on how our #enzymatic pathways are influenced by various #micronutrients. One of the most important amongst is #magnesium.

Thread 🧵: Reflections of a Parent/Caregiver After Six Years Implementation of CDC Guidelines (warning long but I am very interested in feedback)

Since babies, my kids, have intimately known #pain. At one time their #pain was intermittent & #acute. Sadly, they now struggle 1/
#chronicpain & are young adults. Our kids 1st 13/16 years of life, our family had a #safetynet, their #pediatrician. He was highly intelligent, compassionate, he challenged the system & in the most authentic sense #partnered with families. #Pain was not a major concern when 2/
the kids were under his care. The nature of their disease often brought us to the ER & hospitalizations. The hospitalizations resulted due to inability to manage #pain, dehydration, & other issues caused by a flare in their #disease. My husband & I attempted to minimize the 3/

Dear @OptumRx & @SanfordHealth you are NOT his #physician. You know nothing of his #health hx. Two years ago #Sanford #Bismarck #pain clinic pulled all #patients off #opioid #pain medications. This was not #patientcentered care, but care deemed appropriate BY administrators 1
Now @OptumRx & @SanfordHealth #insurance sending out letters re #opioid #pain #medications. My son had to move from a #Sanford clinic to another clinic due to #abandonment. Yep, abandonment. Plain & simple what you did was harmful & not based on #patients needs. You need 2

I want to again express my concern to my senators @SenJohnHoeven and @kevincramer about the lack of transparency by the @CDCDirector @CDCInjury in the revising of the #OpioidGuidelines. Great harm has been done to those w #chronicpain in our state. @SanfordHealth 1/
cut all #patients off of #opioids at once due to what administration stated was because of ‘national standard’ (#CDC Guidelines). So many harmed. How are actions like this ok? Three weeks prior to my son being removed from #opioid #pain medications we had met with his 2/
#pain physician & had a long talk about #opioid #pain #medications being best option for him. Removing individuals w #chronicpain from #opioid pain medication was not a decision based on individual care of #patients BUT @SanfordHealth taking care of own needs. Multiple 3/

This is an important talk @resiapretorius gave at the @polybioRF Seminar Series. Her early pilot data (~10 subjects) shows that #LongCovid patients have abnormal microclots in their blood samples that are indicative of endothelial + platelet dysfunction:
2/ The microclots in the LongCovid samples contain serum amyloid A, fibrinogen, complement factors, and cytoskeletal kerratin. Dr. Pretorius has already filed a patent for diagnosing #LongCovid using detection of these deposits. She is also writing a paper on her findings.
3/ This is a cool image from her presentation that shows 1) the blood of a patient before #COVID-19 (healthy) 2) microclots in the patient’s #blood during COVID-19 3) microclots in the patient's blood several months later when they had #LongCovid symptoms

Whoa...... I have no issue paying a reasonable price for #medications. It’s #EXTORTION I have issues with. When #pharamaceutical companies make literally billions by selling a med that cost pennies to make for hundreds of 💵 that’s #BullShit. I usually don’t call out 1/
people but this is truly shitty. I worked. I have a good job. I have good insurance yet the cost for my kids monthly meds is often equivalent to what I take home. The #pharmaceutical companies develop new meds of our backs yet we see NONE of that 💰 2

This opinion article by Douglas Makinnon is both troubling and groundbreaking. First, no one should ever condone #fatshaming - as it has been proven to be detrimental to individual struggles with #obesity and does not lead to resolution. 1/
The publication of this opinion, which “calls out” the #US government for a “waste of energy” during an #obesity crisis - #obesityepidemic is one of the few times a political publication has addressed the lack of action on resolution of this chronic diesease. @ObesityAction 2/
Despite the accusations in the article that #Physcians are NOT addressing the issue, there is a strong effort from #baraitric #surgeons and #medical #baritricians as well as advocates #RD #nurses @ObesityAction @obsmchat @ObesitySociety @OMAsocial among scores of others 3/

Very interesting! 👉 Team found (in mice) that #fever alters surface proteins (integrins) on #immune cells such as lymphocytes + macrophages ☝️ These changes allow such cells to better travel via #blood vessels to reach sites of infection.
And yet, if you walk into a USA #pharmacy, most medications for flu, colds, inflammation, injuries etc deliberately “knock down” #fever to temporarily palliate symptoms 👉 How do such #medications then impact long-term immunity, pathogen persistence and #microbiome health??
This same trend (medications that treat the #immune response as an “enemy” vs. an “ally”) are also “standard of care” for chronic disease 👉 But as such “#autoimmune”/inflammatory conditions are increasingly tied to #microbiome dysbiosis does that paradigm still make sense??
