Headaches: Three Tips From a Neuroscientist On How To Get Rid Of Them

Woman sitting at desk clutches her neck and back in pain.

Everyone experiences headaches. From dull throbbing dehydration headaches to incapacitating migraines, a sore head is an extremely common complaint. This is perhaps especially true at the moment. COVID-19 can cause them, as can sitting at desks for too long and not getting out of the house enough.

When headaches strike, many people’s reaction is to reach for a painkiller. And these can do the job. But a better solution is often to probe the reasons behind the pain – especially if you get similar types of headaches a lot.

Even though they all entail pain, where the pain is can clue us into what type of headache we are experiencing. Pain in the face and forehead are markers of sinus-related headache whilst the sensation of a pneumatic drill somewhere in our cranium is often migraine.

But ultimately, all headaches are caused by vasodilation in the head – the widening of blood vessels near the brain. This stretches sensory receptors in the vessel wall and we feel that sensation as pain.

To understand why we need to think about the constraints the contents of our head are working under. Blood is toxic to brain tissue and so is kept separate through the blood-brain barrier. If a blood vessel leaks or breaks, this results in a haemorrhage and the death of the brain tissue the blood seeps into. So, if our blood vessels dilate beyond comfortable limits, the sensory receptors will fire off signals to the brain, which we interpret as pain.

Headaches are an early warning system. The best way to counteract them is to work out what they are warning us about.

1. Think beyond your head

 

This means thinking beyond your head. Yes, headache pain is generated somewhere in our head and we feel it in our head and that is why it is called headache. But headache is so much more than that – which is why I’m fascinated by them, have studied them for the past 20 years and recently published a book on the subject.

It’s a two-way street. The cause of our headache can sometimes come from our body or our behaviour. And of course headaches affect both our body and our behaviour. If we see headache as something isolated to our cranium then we will never truly understand its cause, our experience of it, or how we can best mitigate it.

Frequent migraine sufferers intimately understand this and often religiously track their food intake and their activities as well as the weather in order to work out what triggers them. But the normal headache sufferer is often less in tune with the causes of their pain.

Tension headache is a really good example of how this works. It feels like a tight band squeezing around your head with a tonne weight sitting on top for good measure. We are all aware of their occurrence at times of great emotional stress (lockdown homeschooling anyone?) but they can equally be caused by the stress we put on our body, with bad posture for example, or recovery from injury.

Both entail over-activity of the musculature around the head and neck, which sets up an inflammatory response involving prostaglandins and nitric oxide, both of which are chemicals that act to widen blood vessels. Inflammatory chemicals also directly activate the trigeminal nerve – the most complex of the cranial nerves and the one responsible for sensation and movement in the face.

Taking too many things on, rushing around trying to get things done in negative time, and trying to be all things to all people are common behavioural markers that will predict a tension headache. That and the actions we take when the pain begins.

2. Listen to the pain

If you have a pain in your leg, it might stop you from playing in that tennis match or turning up for five-a-side football. You know that if you play on it, you might do more damage and your recovery will take longer. But we don’t tend to do that with headache. We take a painkiller or an anti-inflammatory and carry on as normal even though our pain receptors are screaming at us that there is something wrong.

Taking paracetamol or ibuprofen will act to avert the danger, reducing the inflammation, the dilation and the perception of pain, but the headache will reoccur unless we can address the cause. Sometimes it’s obvious – if you have a sinus headache you’re just going to have to wait for your sinuses to clear, so taking a painkiller or a decongestant may be a good approach – but sometimes our coping strategy can make things worse.

We may decide a bottle of wine and a takeaway is just the kind of treat we need to relax and de-stress. But both lead to dehydration, another ubiquitous cause of headache. With your brain made of more than 70% water, if your kidneys need borrow some to dilute alcohol or salts and spices, it usually comes from this oasis. The brain loses water such that it literally shrinks in volume, tugging on the membranes covering the brain and triggering pain.

3. Use the brain’s natural painkillers

So what else can we do? One way is to lean into the brain’s natural painkiller system and to boost neurochemicals associated with happiness (such as serotonin and oxytocin) and reward (dopamine). Having a laugh at a comedy, enjoying a good friend’s company or indulging in some intimacy with a partner will all boost these hormones to various degrees.

Each block pain signals coming from the body, not only helping you get a handle on your headache but also redressing the balance of neurochemicals that were the mechanism of your upset emotional state.

The knowledge that we can leverage our behaviour and our body to keep our brain’s neurochemicals in balance gives us a way to break the headache cycle. So next time you have a headache for which the causes aren’t glaringly obvious – you’re not otherwise sick and you’ve been keeping hydrated – take a look at your life and see what you can change there. The pain, after all, is trying to tell you something.

This Uncovered Japanese Secret Battles Stress & Anxiety

One of our top editors was great. Until he wasn’t. Dennis, renamed here for privacy reasons, is a great colleague and friend of us — good-looking, successful in his career, and in a great long-term relationship. Someone who you’d say has it all.

He graduated from Georgetown University with a Master’s in literature and was quick to advance the ranks from writer to editor. Dennis was an inspiration. Except for one terrible problem.

At one period, Dennis started distancing himself from the office and our team. He suffered from severe stress and anxiety, and the signs were showing — he started having grey hairs, developing acne breakouts, and experiencing back pain. He was successful, but the side effects of working long hours were catching up.

Now, Dennis is a close friend of mine, so we kept in touch. He knew the problem was in his lifestyle. He switched careers to a more relaxed position in a local publishing house, started doing yoga, eating healthy. But his problems didn’t stop.


Dennis spent two months trying to get back to his old self, but it was all the same — grey hairs, acne breakouts, and back pain.

But he always had an interest in traditional medicine. And he decided to give it a try by going to Japan and speaking to various doctors.

Some doctors tried doing tests, C-Scans, and biopsies, but not one could pinpoint why Dennis was experiencing his symptoms.

Nothing seemed to work. Until one morning, talking to a farmer in a local market, he expressed his health concerns.

“You must go to this hidden Ryokan (a spiritual retreat) where many famous Japanese go to find cures for their problems.” The farmer said.

And so Dennis did — he went to this hidden spiritual retreat for a week.

For a week, Dennis learned from the local monks — he cleaned the common spaces with the monks, picked natural food, did yoga, and he started feeling a bit better.

Around the 5th day in this retreat, a practitioner noticed Dennis experiencing severe back pain while he was trying to get up from his bed. He looked at Dennis being in pain, observed his body’s movements, the graying of his hair, and the acne breakouts on his face.

The practitioner told Dennis that his body looks like it had a toxin overload. It seemed, he said, like Dennis had lived a very stressful lifestyle and had forgotten to take care of his body for too long. There was a natural ailment, he said, that Dennis should try.

“The feet are full of the most sensitive nerve endings and body energy centers. All body systems flow through the feet. But when was the last time you took proper care of your feet?”

The question dazzled Dennis. He knew the practitioner had a point — even if Dennis tried eating right, going to yoga class, or jogging — he never quite thought about taking care of the part of his body that’s amongst the most essential in maintaining a healthy blood flow throughout the body.

The practitioner handed Dennis special feet patches that he said were made from various herbs — a century-old ailment the Japanese had been using to stabilize blood flow in the feet and help reduce the number of toxins accumulated there. After all, he said, the feet is where the first chakra is — it’s your connection with the Earth, and if you do not take good care of it, you’re going to lose this connection.

The patches had a nice, lavender smell and were supposed to be worn at night. The following night, Dennis put the patches on his feet, as instructed by the practitioner. He felt nice warmth and comfort, which helped him fall asleep faster.

The following morning, as Dennis woke and took the patches off, they were dyed in black. Rich, full black. It seemed strange because Dennis had washed his feet the previous night so there was no way for them to be dirty. Dennis went back to the practitioner and asked what the reason may be.

“According to ancient Japanese medical knowledge, our human body has over 360 acupuncture points. More than 60 of the acupuncture points are found on the soles of the foot. Our feet are the reflective zones of our internal organs.” the practitioner began to explain.

He continued, “these patches stimulate the 60 acupuncture points on your feet and help detoxify your body. The herb mix draws out toxins from the feet in a safe and non-invasive way. The toxins leaving your body are what dye the patches to black”

Dennis couldn’t believe it — and he was right in his disbelief. Never in his life had he heard of anything similar. But he decided to give the patches a try and continued using them for another week. Each night he would put clean white patches on his feet, and in the morning, he would wake up to the patches being richly black.

However, with each night, the patches seemed to be less and less black. By day 6, he noticed that his face was turning brighter and regaining healthy texture.

Dennis found a century-old solution that finally solved his problems.

After a week of use, Dennis almost cried. His back pain and acne breakouts had subsided so much that he almost forgot there had been anything wrong. He wanted to purchase more patches to bring back home, but he was told that they were a local ailment that would not be given up to the wider world. But Dennis now knew how to fix his problems, and he vowed to recreate the patches, and even improve on them!

Dennis was introduced to a Japanese farmer that comes from a family of generations of doctors.

Once he left the retreat, Dennis came back to the same town where he had met the farmer in a local market and told him the patches’ story and how they helped solve Dennis’s problems. The farmer nodded his head and said that a friend of his had made something similar to what Dennis had described.

He then went on to introduce Dennis to Kai Akira, a childhood friend of his.

Kai Akira was an aging Japanese doctor. He possessed wisdom passed through generations, care, patience and love. He knew that for the body to be healed the mind and soul should be taken care of as well.

Kai spent his time carefully picking herbs in the forest and later mixing them like his grandfather and father did before. As Dennis and the local farmer came to visit Kai Akira, there was a peaceful rustling of the leaves in the forest close to his home, a pond with koi fish near his little house, surrounded in serenity and silence. Here, the old man Kai Akira explained to Dennis the idea of a ‘healing’.

The “healing” is a process, a meditation. The herbs get mixed into a powder, powder is added into a bandage for the feet. That bandage is later perfected into a patch by his own children – the patch he calls Nuubu. A simple, natural solution to reduce the effects of stress and toxicity that are associated with fast-paced modern life.

And so, Dennis tried the Nuubu patch, and he discovered that it worked even better than the one that he had tried at the retreat. Together with Kai’s children, Dennis made dozens of prototypes and tested every version. They gave samples to young and older adults who suffered stress and anxiety, and had visible symptoms of a stressful life on their bodies.

What was astonishing was that not only people with back pain were helped, but healthy people with no pain reported a massive boost in vitality, energy and well being too.

At last, Dennis decided to bring the secret traditional Japanese herb ailment to the U.S., sourcing initial production from Kai Akira, and calling the patches ‘Nuubu’ to show respect to the Japanese doctor.

Nuubu catches on like wildfire!

Dennis gave out hundreds of samples of Nuubu to everyone he knew. With only word of mouth, both people who were suffering and people who loved the new energy they felt were coming back again and again to Dennis to ask for more foot patches.

Nuubu is now available to everyone! Dennis formed a company to sell the original, powerful, perfected NUUBU TO EVERYONE! He decided to market them directly to the public at a reasonable price. This was so he could control the quality. The manufacturing process has to be precise. The herbs have to be picked and dried in rural Japan. The process of packing must be exact, herb after herb, just like Kai Akira packaged them. Dennis knew there might be imitators, but no other company had the real secret of which specific herbs need to be picked for the patch. The first run of NUUBU EXPLODED. Reorders and new orders piled in. Pretty soon, the demand for NUUBU was outstripping the herb pickers’ ability to pick enough herbs!

Find out how they work and get Nuubu for yourself!

Nuubu aids your body in toxin removal by using the power of reflexology to tap into acupuncture points on the soles of your feet. These foot pads offer a convenient and healthy way to clear your body of toxins, helping you live a stronger and happier life. The detox patches also contain wood vinegar and negative ions which are beneficial for our body.

Furthermore, foot patches also help in improving blood circulation. Poor blood circulation symptoms include cold hands and feet, muscle cramps, tiredness, heavy or aching legs. If you have any of them, Nuubu is believed to aid with their relief.

When blood circulates through the foot, the patch utilizes these points to draw out toxins. As toxins are pushed away, they end up at the lower extremities such as the feet. Gravity is also aiding in bringing those heavy metals and toxins to our feet — the place where you put Nuubu to extract the toxins from your body.

What to expect

When you wake up, you may find the pads yellow, brown or black. That is said to be the reaction of the pads eliminating the toxins through the night. The first few nights you use Nuubu, expect to see the pads dark. As you use them continuously, they will start being of lighter color — this may imply that your body is carrying fewer toxins.

1. Regular medicine treats symptoms, Nuubu gets to the root of the problem – toxins – and tackles them.

Nuubu is developed based on centuries-old Asian medicinal wisdom. It tackles the true, hidden cause behind a lot of symptoms that your body may be experiencing by removing the toxins — the root cause of many pains & problems — from your body.

2. Nuubu is natural and nature friendly

Nuubu is developed based on centuries-old Asian medicinal wisdom. It tackles the true, hidden cause behind a lot of symptoms that your body may be experiencing by removing the toxins — the root cause of many pains & problems — from your body.

3. Helps relieve stress

One of the key benefits of Nuubu is stress relief. The pads comfort the soles of the feet at night, claiming to rid the body of stress and fatigue that accumulate through the day.

4. Reduces anxiety

With Nuubu, after a few days of use, you should feel more ease and clarity in your mind and body upon waking up.

5. Better sleep

Whether you’re having trouble sleeping or not, Nuubu can help improve your sleep. The comfort Nuubu provides for your soles should make your night more blissful and improve your sleep quality so that you wake up well-rested and active.

6. Anti-Aging effects

Nuubu is anti-aging – it improves your skin as well as organs! The removal of toxins helps clean pores, so you should see a reduction in acne breakouts and other skin-related problems. Expect to see your skin looking glossy and young after using Nuubu!

How do you use Nuubu?

Keep them in your bed table, so you don’t have to walk around once you put them on. Remove the packaging and place the pad on the central area of the bottom of your foot, and apply the attached strip over the pad to make sure that it stays in place. And that’s it! You can go to sleep, and keep Nuubu on overnight — only remove them in the morning. Once you peel them off, you should see the results by the color of the patches. Each patch is for single-use, so apply new ones every night.

Could a Pill Help Detect Breast Cancer – Emily Matchar

1.jpg

Women eventually face the yearly ritual of the mammogram, usually suggested from age 50 onwards. It’s not painful, though notoriously uncomfortable, as two plates flatten the breasts, pancake-like, to get the best possible picture. The radiologist then looks at x-ray images for opaque spots that can indicate tumors.

Mammography has been used since the late 1960s and is considered the gold standard for breast cancer detection. But it’s far from perfect. The method misses about 1 in 5 cancers, and about half of women screened annually for 10 years will have a false positive result, often resulting in anxiety and unnecessary biopsies. Mammograms are also unable to distinguish slow-growing cancers from aggressive ones, which is necessary when choosing a course of treatment.

But researchers at the University of Michigan are working on a new method of breast cancer detection they hope could complement—perhaps one day even replace—the mammogram. It’s a pill—patients swallow it and it makes tumors light up when exposed to infrared light. The pill could not only detect tumors, it could also potentially distinguish how aggressive they are.

“From decades of research into cancer, we know it’s really a molecular disease,” says Greg Thurber, a professor of chemical and biomedical engineering who led the research, recently published in the journal Molecular Pharmaceutics. “But the screening technology just looks at anatomy.”

Thurber’s team developed a pill filled with dye that “tags” a molecule common in tumors and the surrounding tissue. Once the pill has been ingested, researchers can use infrared light to penetrate the breast (the exact technology is under development). This both reveals the presence of tumors and gives information on the types of molecules present in these tumors, which can help doctors determine the nature of the cancer.

Taking the dye in pill form is potentially safer than having it injected intravenously, which can occasionally cause allergic reactions. But designing the pill was a challenge. The kind of molecule that can be easily absorbed in pill-form by the digestive tract needs to be small and “greasy,” Thurber says, while molecules that make good imaging agents are larger and bind to water.

To find the right agent, the team used a combination of lab testing and computer modeling. They eventually got lucky when they found that the pharmaceutical company Merck had a cancer drug they’d tested for safety but had proven ineffective in clinical trials. The drug turned out to be perfect for the team’s purposes, as it was capable of passing freely through the bloodstream and binding to tumor molecules. They added a molecule that lights up under infrared light, and tested the resulting combo in mice with breast tumors. Indeed, it made the tumors glow.

Thurber and his team are now focused on developing additional agents to add to the current pill that could tag different types of tumors or different aspects of tumors. This could give doctors additional information about the cancers detected.

“Every person’s tumor is different,” Thurber says. “Even within the same tumor there can be different types of cancer.”

The researchers will then need to do toxicity studies and from there move to larger animal studies. Thurber hopes they can reach the human trial phase in about five years. They’re also hoping to partner with companies to develop the infrared screening tools necessary for human use.

While the pill could theoretically tag any type of cancer, infrared light can only penetrate a short distance into the body. This is fine for breast cancer detection, as breasts can be “squished” thin for imaging, but wouldn’t work for detecting cancer in deeper organs.

diagnostic-pill-top-image.jpg

After it’s ingested, the pill would deliver fluorescent targeting molecules (dye is shown in red) to any tumors. (Thurber Lab)

The team does hope the approach could work for detecting other diseases besides cancer. Rheumatoid arthritis is one potential target, Thurber says, as it is can be effectively treated in its early stages, but is hard to distinguish from other types of arthritis until it progresses.

Reuven Gordon, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Victoria in Canada who studies the use of light in cancer detection, thinks the research is promising but cautions that it’s early days. Even if a new method of detection is useful, researchers will have to prove that it’s better than the gold standard, and work to make clinicians and patients comfortable with new technology.

“It’s not obvious to me that this is going to be a home run, but it does look promising,” he says. “They have demonstrated something nice from a scientific point of view.”

Standardized Patients Play Active Role in Medical Education

Newswise — WINSTON–SALEM, N.C. – May 16, 2018 – They’re actors, but they don’t perform on stage or in front of cameras. And they don’t do drama or comedy. Rather, they specialize in injuries and illnesses.

“I’ve had every disease you can imagine,” said Donna Sparks, a retired teacher who, along with her husband, Jeff, has been acting sick for 10 years at Wake Forest School of Medicine.

Donna and Jeff Sparks are among the role-players known as standardized patients. They are people who have been trained to accurately and consistently portray the physical signs or symptoms of medical conditions and the emotional characteristics and everyday concerns of actual patients in simulated clinical sessions with medical students, physician assistant students and others who are pursuing health care professions.

The purpose of these encounters is both simple and important: to give prospective providers the opportunity to develop both clinical skills and “bedside manner” before they begin to practice medicine for real.

“It’s definitely valuable,” said Lauren West-Livingston, a third-year student at Wake Forest School of Medicine. “We get to practice with these patients in a controlled environment so that when we go on to see real patients in the hospital or in clinic we have some experience, and some confidence.”

Standardized patients – also referred to as simulated patients or patient actors – are employed at most medical schools and teaching hospitals in the United States. The concept was introduced at the University of Southern California in 1963, more fully developed at the University of Arizona in the 1970s and widely adopted by medical schools – including Wake Forest School of Medicine – in the 1980s.

“Standardized patients are vital in helping us prepare our students for their future careers in health care,” said Mary Claire O’Brien, M.D., the Wake Forest medical school’s senior associate dean for health care education. “Our students are able not only to practice their clinical work but also to learn the importance of building relationships with their patients, empathizing with them and doing what’s best for them physically, emotionally and financially.”

Wake Forest medical students have clinical sessions with standardized patients – SPs for short – during all four of their years at the school. To give the students the most realistic experience possible, the sessions are held in specially equipped examination rooms at the Bowman Gray Center for Medical Education and cover a wide variety of medical scenarios – such as conducting a routine physical examination, diagnosing a minor ailment or delivering a negative prognosis about a life-threatening disease – with all types of people.

Wake Forest School of Medicine currently has a roster of 85 patient actors, said Kendall Freeman, manager of the Standardized Patient Program, which is part of the school’s Center for Experiential and Applied Learning. These men and women range in age from 20 to 75, have body types spanning the spectrum from athletic to obese, are members of different racial and ethnic groups and come from diverse socioeconomic, educational and occupational backgrounds.

“Right now we have pretty much everybody,” Freeman said.

To maintain that mix, hiring is done on the basis of demographic need, Freeman said. Otherwise, there are no requirements for becoming a standardized patient, and acting experience is definitely not necessary. That’s because SPs are obliged to strictly stick to the script in the clinical sessions, for which the medical aspects are standardized to allow for direct comparison and consistent evaluation of the students’ clinical skills.

At Wake Forest School of Medicine, newly hired standardized patients undergo a full day of training. To prepare for sessions with students, all SPs receive, usually one or two weeks in advance, detailed instructions and, if needed, additional training for the particular medical scenario.

And while emoting and improvisation are taboo, the SPs are, in addition to presenting a specific medical condition, sometimes called on to portray patients with assorted attitudes, behaviors or issues related to or independent of their health status.

“There are patients who intentionally make it difficult for us to get the information we need,” said West-Livingston, who is pursuing a Ph.D. along with her medical degree. “The sessions also can include what are called opportunities for empathy, where they’ll say ‘I’m worried about my job’ or ‘My insurance doesn’t cover that’ and we have to take a break from the diagnostic side and focus on the human aspect.”

Faculty members evaluate the students’ performances in the simulations but the SPs also have input, submitting a written evaluation sheet after each session.

“One thing we evaluate the students on is how comfortable we feel with them,” Donna Sparks said. “Do they listen to us? Do they show empathy and concern? Do they use layman’s terms instead of medical jargon?”

Being a standardized patient is not, it must be said, a regular part-time job. The hours are not steady, the need for SPs varies throughout the year and each actor is by nature ineligible to participate in more than half of the simulated clinical sessions. (“I don’t qualify for ectopic pregnancy,” Jeff Sparks noted.) But the position does have its rewards beyond the pay, which at Wake Forest is $20 an hour.

“It’s very gratifying to see how the students progress from their first year to their fourth year,” Jeff Sparks said. “It’s quite a change.”

“For me, this is another way that I can continue teaching and keep myself busy during retirement,” Donna Sparks said. “The students are so appreciative of what we do, and we really enjoy working with them.”

That feeling extends both ways. The sessions with the standardized patients, West-Livingston said, “are most people’s favorite part of the curriculum.”

How the Bugs In Your Gut Could Affect Your Blood Vessels

1.jpg

The larger the variety of microbes you have in your gut, the healthier your blood vessels are, a new study suggests.

Researchers found that people with a more diverse microbiome had lower odds of developing atherosclerosis, which is a hardening of the arteries — a condition that’s associated with heart attacks and strokes.

The study, published May 10 in the European Heart Journal, is the first to point to a direct connection between the gut microbiome and cardiovascular health. The study found only a connection between the two, however; it didn’t prove cause and effect. [5 Ways Gut Bacteria Affect Your Health]

The gut microbiome — an enormous collection of bacteria, yeast, viruses and other types of microorganisms living in people’s digestive tract — has attracted significant scientific attention in the past several years. And previous research has found that a lack of diversity in a person’s so-called “good” gut microbes could be linked to the development of various ailments, said senior study author Ana Valdes, an associate professor of medicine and health sciences at the University of Nottingham School of Medicine in England.

A number of diseases — and, in particular, inflammation-related conditions — are linked to low microbiome diversity, Valdes told Live Science. The link with “gut diseases, such as the inflammatory bowel disease, are quite obvious,” but low microbiome diversity has also been found to be connected to conditions such as arthritis, psoriasis, eczema and allergies, she said.

Type 2 diabetes, obesity and weight gain also appear to be linked to a poor selection of gut bugs, Valdes said. Because these conditions are known risk factors for heart disease, Valdes and her colleagues wanted to determine whether low microbiome diversity was directly linked to poor heart health, or if it instead was linked to type 2 diabetes, obesity and weight, which, in turn, are tied to poor heart health.

To study the link, the researchers asked more than 600 middle-age female twins from the TwinsUK registry to donate stool and blood samples. In addition, the researchers measured the blood vessel stiffness of the participants, to assess the degree of atherosclerosis. (Valdes cautioned that because the study looked only at British women and included no men or representatives of other countries, it’s unclear whether the results apply to other groups.)

The stool and blood samples provided the researchers with information about each person’s microbiome diversity. These results were then compared with the blood-vessel-stiffness measurements.

“Arterial hardening can be related to diabetes, which can be correlated with low gut microbiome diversity,” Valdes said. “But in our data, we found that [blood vessel stiffness] was not due to obesity or diabetes in these people. [Instead], the gut microbiome seems to be having [a direct] effect … on arterial hardening.”

The researchers found that one family of microbes in particular was tied to blood-vessel stiffness: The less diversity in the types of microbes from this group, called Ruminococcaceae, the higher the level of blood-vessel stiffness was.

Valdes speculated that the connection between blood-vessel stiffness and low gut microbiome diversity might be via inflammation.

“It’s known from other research studies that people who have more inflammation — for example, people who have an inflammatory form of arthritis — when you give them specific drugs that reduce inflammation,” blood-vessel stiffness also goes down, Valdes said.

Val Edward-Jones, a member of the Society for Applied Microbiology who was not involved with the study, said the findings could possibly pave the way for new treatments of atherosclerosis based on dietary approaches.

The study “highlights some very interesting findings between the gut microbiome” and blood-vessel stiffness, Edward-Jones told Live Science. “If certain microorganisms are associated with arterial hardening as this study suggests,” people could potentially alter their gut bacteria with changes to their diet.

People can improve their gut microbiome diversity by getting more fiber, probiotics and omega-3 fatty acids into their diets, Valdes said.
