Relax or Die: Chronic Stress Damages the Immune System; The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) Recommends Novirin to Boost the Immune System against Latent

Rochester, NY (PRWEB) February 15, 2015

Infected with the herpes virus (HSV-1, or HSV-2)? The CBCD, which conducted two separate post-marketing clinical studies on the natural, antiviral formula of Novirin, recommends taking this effective herpes remedy to help the immune system target the latent HSV. – Greg Bennett, CBCD

Long-term, chronic stress damages the immune system, which in turn can lead to an increase in the number of latent viruses, and even reactivation of a virus from a latent state. These two effects may lead to a major disease. Chronic, excessive stress causes cumulative, (negative) impacts on health outcomes. (1) In fact, Dr. Lee and colleagues wrote in a study that stress is now recognized as a universal premorbid factor associated with many risk factors of various chronic diseases. (1) Dr. Lee is from the Korea Institute of Science and Technology in Seoul, Korea. The Mayo Clinic agrees, stating that The body’s stress-response system is usually self-limiting. Once a perceived threat has passed, hormone levels return to normal. As adrenaline and cortisol levels drop, your heart rate and blood pressure return to baseline levels, and other systems resume their regular activities. But when stressors are always present and you constantly feel under attack, that fight-or-flight reaction stays turned on. The long-term activation of the stress-response system – and the subsequent overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones – can disrupt almost all your body’s processes. This puts you at increased risk of numerous health problems. (See from July 11, 2013) (2) As is more specific, stating that stress compromises our immunity from infection and other physical conditions. (See, from February 12, 2013) (3)

When the immune system is damaged due to stress, it can lead to an increase in the number of latent viruses, and even reactivation of a virus from a latent state. This is exactly what happens with the herpes virus. After an initial infection, it establishes a life-long latent infection, and can reactivate, causing a painful outbreak whenever the immune system is weakened. For most, a sore appears, heals and is forgotten, although the virus remains latent just waiting for the right circumstances to come back. (See from October 31, 2012) (4) The CBCD recommends that individuals infected with the herpes virus take Novirin to help maintain the health of their immune system. The formula of this natural herpes remedy was found to safely and effectively reduce HSV symptoms in two separate post-marketing clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines.

The formula of Novirin was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Novirin formula is effective against the herpes simplex family of viruses, which includes VZV. The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, individuals infected with the (HSV-1) reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment (5) The study authors also wrote that, we observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms. (5)

Novirin can be ordered online through the product website, here:

Novirin is a natural antiviral dietary supplement. Its formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses. To date, Novirin is the only natural antiviral product on the market with published clinical studies that support its claims.

The CBCD recommends relaxing. Reducing stress in ones life is highly recommended. Stress management strategies include: eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise and plenty of sleep, practicing relaxation techniques or learning to meditate, fostering healthy friendships, having a sense of humor, (and) seeking professional counseling when needed. (2) If an individual cannot relax, and stress reduction techniques fail, the CBCD recommends helping to maintain the health of the immune system by taking Novirin. The formula of this natural antiviral was designed to help the immune system safely and effectively target the latent HSV.

What other treatments are currently available for herpes infections?

Two types of antiviral treatments against HSV are available: topical and oral. The treatments include penciclovir, acyclovir, famciclovir, and valaciclovir. However, their effectiveness is limited. For instance, a meta-analysis of five placebo-controlled and two dose comparison studies evaluated the effect of aciclovir, famciclovir or valaciclovir on symptoms. The meta-analysis showed that oral antiviral therapy decreases the duration and the associated pain of an outbreak by merely one day. (5). There is also the natural supplement Novirin, which has a formula that was designed to help the immune system target the herpes virus when it is in a latent form.

Because long term stress can expose the body to the negative effects of a latent viral infection, we recommend that individuals take Novirin. The formula of these natural antiviral products was designed to help the immune system target latent viruses. Greg Bennett, CBCD

Physicians 30 Hour CME Conference to Offer Meditation and Yoga for Reducing Burnout and Enhancing Work-Life Balance

Averill Park, NY (PRWEB) September 09, 2014

How to reduce physician burnout and enhance work-life balance will be topics discussed at The American Meditation Institutes (AMI) sixth annual mind/body medicine CME conference on meditation and yoga November 5-9, 2014 at the Cranwell Resort and Spa in Lenox, Massachusetts. Entitled The Heart and Science of Yoga, this 30 CME mind/body medicine training for physicians and other health care professionals is accredited through the Albany Medical College Office of Continuing Medical Education.

Physician burnout is on the rise! Thats according to a June 5, 2014 report by Jeff Burger in the Gallup Business Journal. According to Burger, Approximately 42 percent, or four in ten physicians, report feeling dissatisfied in their medical practice.

A career as a physician can be very rewarding, but it can also be very stressful as they deal with issues such as patients who die, high workloads, the regulatory environment and their own fallibility. Even though doctors tend to be a physically healthy group, Carol Cassella, MD, board certified in both internal medicine and anesthesiology, sadly admits in a June 14, 2014 Wall Street Journal blog that, We dont always manage our mental health with the same vigilance and compassion that we offer our patients. Doctors suffer from career burnout at higher rates than their college educated peers, and depression and suicide rates exceed the norm–particularly among young doctors still in training.

And the problem is not just with U. S. physicians. According to Brian Goldman, MD of the Schwartz Reisman Emergency Centre at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, an increasing number of Canadian doctors are riding the express lane to burnout. According to Goldman, Burnout is a problem that affects established physicians and a disturbing number of ones just starting out. Commenting on a June 2, 2014 editorial published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal Goldman states the rate of burnout among Canadian medical residents is an astonishing fifty percent. One out of every two young MDs just starting out suffers from burnout, a state of emotional exhaustion.

As part of AMIs holistic mind/body medicine teaching program, this conference is dedicated to providing quality, comprehensive and evidence-based education to physicians and other health care providers. This CME course will offer a broad curriculum to ward off stressful burnout and disease. Topics include mantra meditation, diaphragmatic breathing, Yoga psychology, chakra system therapy, mind function optimization, nutrition, functional medicine, epigenomics, ayurveda, easy-gentle yoga and lymph system detoxification.

Each faculty member at this years CME conference is committed to the advancement and training of Yoga Science as holistic mind/body medicine. Presenters will include faculty director Leonard Perlmutter, AMI founder, meditational therapist and award-winning author; Mark Pettus MD, Director of Medical Education and Population Health at Berkshire Health Systems; Susan Lord MD, faculty member and holistic health consultant for Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health; Kathie Swift MS RDN LDN, leading educator, practitioner and author in the field of integrative nutrition; Beth Netter MD MT, holistic physician and acupuncturist, Albany, NY; Rosy Mann BAMS, Ayurvedic practitioner specializing in womens health and senior faculty member of Kripalu School of Ayurveda; Jenness Cortez Perlmutter, co-founder and faculty member of The American Meditation Institute.

Since 1995, Mr. Perlmutter has lectured extensively on the health benefits of meditation and yoga as mind/body medicine, including talks at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Albany Medical Center, Stratton VA Medical Center, Berkshire Medical Center, University of Colorado Medical School, University of Wisconsin School of Nursing, Washington University Medical School, the United States Military Academy at West Point, and the Commonwealth Club of California. He also served on a distinguished New York Times panel of Yoga experts with Dr. Dean Ornish. Noted physicians Mehmet Oz, Dean Ornish, Bernie Siegel and Larry Dossey have endorsed Mr. Perlmutters treatise on Yoga Science, which serves as the primary curriculum for the course.

According to AMI founder Leonard Perlmutter, The more consistently the therapeutic practices of meditation and yoga are incorporated into daily lives of physicians and patients, most symptoms of stress related burnout and chronic complex diseases can be diminished or eliminated.

This sentiment is echoed by recent conference graduate, Joel M. Kremer, MD, who is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Rheumatology in Albany, New York, This teaching has been an enormous benefit in my personal and professional life. I have less stress, more focus, and am able to serve my patients with greater clarity. It becomes surprisingly easy now to recognize the many clinical situations in which patients with somatic manifestations of ‘dis-ease’ could greatly benefit from Yoga Science.

In addition to Dr. Kremer, numerous medical pioneers and healthcare professionals such as Mehmet Oz MD, Dean Ornish MD and Bernie Siegel MD have also endorsed this curriculum. Previous conference attendees have also noted that the material presented has made a beneficial impact toward their personal and professional efforts at self-care.

I brought my whole family to my first Nataraja retreat, says Brian Lewis, Nataraja Student. The revelation my wife, children and I experienced in gaining the understanding that there is a simple practice called meditation that is available to you at a moments notice is invaluable. The experience will plant the seed that will change your experience of life forever.

This retreat celebrates a lifetime dedicated to teaching peace, true meditation and transformative yoga. Nataraja Meditation and Yoga Center is the brainchild of Dr. Erhard Vogel. Growing up in war-torn Germany, Vogel took it upon himself to find a way to teach peace in the world.
