HEALTH TIPS
Do you have Heel pain

Plantar fasciitis is an acute or semiacute injury which occurs due to the stretching and partial rupture of the firm band of connective tissue (plantar fascia) on the sole of the foot.

Excessive stretching of the plantar fascia may be caused by:
1. Excessive, long periods of foot pronation
2. Landing hard on the sole of the foot
3. Quick foot acceleration and deceleration
4. Repetitive shock caused by heel strike
Heel pain is frequent complaint with middle-aged patients especially with those on their feet for consistently long periods of time. Most often, however, those suffering from plantar fasciitis have been excessively pronating for many years.
Without support, the arches of the excessively pronated foot gradually weaken, placing more strain on the plantar fascia.
If a patient come to us complaining of pain in the heel or arches, we check for signs of swelling, spasm, gait distortion, and/or loss of strength. During the exam observe the stance and gait od every patient.
Untreated excessive pronation may eventually lead to plantar fasciitis.
Plantar fasciitis is believed to be a contributing factor to developing calcaneal heel spure.

Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) Damages the Brain

Patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) have increased odds of depression, dementia and other neurological conditions, according to a study in the Journal of Hepatology.
NAFLD is usually caused by a high-sugar, high-fat diet, which has been linked to brain fog, mood imbalances and other brain-related symptoms on its own. Now, there is a direct link between NAFLD an increasingly common liver disease affecting 25 percent of the population and suboptimal brain function.
A buildup of fat in the liver is associated with a decrease in oxygen in the brain, as well as brain tissue inflammation said the researchers. Both condition are present in those with serious brain disorders.

Study Details
For the study, mice were divided into 2 groups and given either a low fat diet (10percent fat or less) or a high-fat diet (55 percent fat). The latter group's food was designed to mimic a diet high in processed foods and sugary drinks.
At the end of 16 weeks, mice on the higher-fat diet became obese and they developed NAFLD, along with brain dysfunction ans insulin resistance. The mice in the low fat- group did not have any of the same problems--No NAFLD, brain problems or insulin resistance.
