Editor’s

NOTE

April has a special place in my heart, and not just because my daughter, Cami, turns one year this month. It was at this time five years ago that my good friend Brian—who’s now my husband and copilot in life, business and first-time parenting—asked me to resign from my job and help him start up a health magazine. “It’s a crazy idea,” I thought. But with nothing to lose, I took the chance anyway. And here we are, five years later, and we’ve not only grown together as a family but have increased The Health Journal’s circulation and coverage area five-fold. This month marks yet another giant step for our business as we expand westward into Richmond with a fourth edition. This year has marked one of the biggest upgrades we’ve ever made to the look and feel of The Health Journal. Changing from a “loose” format to a stapled-and-trimmed one has allowed greater creative freedom in our layout and design. The past few issues have also featured cover stories that fall outside our traditional in-depth coverage of health and medical conditions. In February we ran as our cover story a heart-wrenching essay by a grieving father who had lost his infant daughter to a rare metabolic disorder. We’d published readers’ essays and commentaries before, but nothing to the depth and degree of “Remembering Josephine.” (As an update to the story, we’re proud to announce the family celebrated the birth of a son, Christopher Joseph Lampitt, born Feb. 26.) This month’s issue marks another editorial first: Following last year’s successful series on Colonialera health practices (read the series online at www.thehealthjournals.com), we’ve published a portion of local author Tony Williams’ latest book, The Pox and the Covenant: Mather, Franklin and the Epidemic that Changed America’s Destiny (Sourcebooks, April 2010). You’ll also find an in-depth interview with the veteran author and father of two, who’s already making special appearances at local book stores. Here’s the synopsis: When a British ship, fresh from the Caribbean, sails into Boston’s harbor in early April 1721, it carries upon it a deadly virus that sparks a series of dramatic events that ultimately wreak havoc upon the city. As more than half of Boston’s residents contract smallpox, Reverend Cotton Mather, the port city’s most popular Protestant minister, tries to convince local doctors and townspeople of the efficacy of inoculation, an early form of modern vaccination. “Surprisingly—no, almost shockingly,” says Williams, the doctors refuse to practice inoculation and vehemently attack those who tout its effectiveness. Mather recruits one physician, Dr. Zabdiel Boylston, and together they begin inoculating patients— with good results. Meanwhile, the city is racked with violence as tensions peak between the ministry and the town’s physicians. Mather is threatened on the street, publicly attacked in the newspapers (particularly by young Benjamin Franklin and his older brother James, another surprising twist to the story), and someone even launches a bomb through a window of Mather’s home in the middle of the night. (Sound strangely familiar? Think health care reform.) Inoculation is eventually accepted; later in that decade Boylston presents his findings to lead scientists at London’s Royal Society (similar experiments were being done in Europe), and by the turn of the 19th century smallpox vaccination (using the cowpox virus) was becoming common practice. Fastforward 200 years, and smallpox is globally eradicated. We’ve got to hand it to Mather and his contemporaries for, despite the fierce opposition, standing up for what they believed was morally right—a concept that, in the end, saved millions of lives and spared countless more from pain and suffering. Is there a modern lesson to be learned from this little-known slice of American history? Only time will tell.

Ed.: Here’s what our skin care expert had to say: “Melasma (known as the mask of pregnancy) often fades on its own but can also be treated with certain products and procedures as well as lifestyle changes. Pregnancy is not the only trigger: Birth control pills, hormone therapy, anti-seizure medications, and other medications can incite this condition. Our expert recommends consulting a board-certified dermatologist, who may prescribe Tri-luma cream (or other bleaching agent), kojic acid, azelaic acid or glycolic acids. Other treatments include gentle microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser surgery. No single treatment reliably works for every patient, and while melasma may disappear, it can return. It’s important that you avoid products that could irritate the skin as this could make the melasma worse.” Further information can be found at www.aad.org.

Divine Intervention Faith-based wellness programs focus on disease prevention WRITTEN BY ALISON JOHNSON PHOTOGRAPHY BY BRIAN M. FREER

W

6 THE HEALTH JOURNAL

hen Pastor Walter Johnson delivered a recent Sunday sermon, he touched on a subject outside his traditional religious framework: the risk of vitamin D deficiency in African-Americans. The vitamin, found naturally in few foods, boosts bone strength and may lower the risk of certain cancers. The problem? Darker skin blocks more of the sunlight that helps the skin make vitamin D. After Johnson, pastor at Zion Prospect Baptist Church in Yorktown, learned at a doctor’s appointment that he had low levels of vitamin D, he was confident at least some of his church members did, too. Johnson’s sermon was just one example of how a growing number of local churches are diving into the field of health education. Zion Prospect Baptist also has taken part in an American Heart Association initiative called Power to End Stroke, a national campaign that includes an educational film on stroke risk factors and symptoms. In addition, the church has held workshops on heart disease, obesity, AIDS and senior health as well as prostate and breast cancer. Church officials schedule blood pressure checks once a month and organize a walking group during good weather. “The church is such a good place to disseminate this kind of information,” Johnson says. “You’re getting right at the people who live in the community. These are people who might not otherwise hear the things we’re saying. There’s not a doubt in my mind that it’s making a difference. People are much more aware of what they can do to be healthy.” Churches now touch on a wide variety of health topics, from prenatal care and childhood obesity to alcohol addiction and caring for Alzheimer’s patients. Some have replaced fatty, salty or sweet fare at celebrations with fruit, vegetables and nuts, and in addition have passed along healthy recipes. Church-run programs to help keep kids active include sports leagues and martial arts classes. Many also have hosted visits from public health representatives and mobile vans offering immunizations, blood pressure and cholesterol screenings and educational programs. “Churches are important centers of family and community life,” says Dr. David Trump, director of the Peninsula Health District. “They have the opportunity—and many churches definitely have taken on

the role—to share messages on healthy eating, physical activity and disease prevention and screening with the members of their congregations and within the community they serve.” In Newport News, for example, churches have been an important partner in the city health department’s “Heal-thy Generations: A Southeast Community Health Movement,” a program that works to reduce chronic diseases such as diabetes and asthma in high-risk communities. (Read The Health Journal’s July 2008 coverage of this program online at www.thehealthjournals.com.) African-American churches in particular have boosted their health care ministries to fight common risks within the population. For example, African-Americans are 1.5 times more likely to die from heart disease compared to Caucasians and 1.8 times more likely to have a fatal stroke, according to the American Heart Pastor Walter Johnson


Bon Secours Receives COPN for Hospital to Replace DePaul

“Promoting healing and good health is part of addressing the spiritual needs of our congregation.” — Priscilla Channel, health care ministry president, Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church, Hampton Association. In response to these statistics, Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church, an approximately 600-member congregation in Hampton, has organized presentations and public health fairs to provide information on diabetes, nutrition, weight control and high blood pressure. “We really think promoting healing and good health is part of addressing the spiritual needs of our congregation,” says Priscilla Channel, health care ministry president at the church. “We emphasize holistic care—a mind, body and spirit approach that we hope can empower our families.”

Studies have shown church programs can be powerful weapons. At an American Heart Association conference in March 2009, researchers reported that nearly half of overweight and obese African-Americans who completed a 12-week program called Fit Body & Soul at a church in Georgia lost five percent or more of their body weight. Nearly 70 percent had kept the weight off after six months. At Community United Methodist Church in Virginia Beach, registered nurses are available after two services every Sunday to take members’ blood pressure. “We get a chance to speak with our regulars and assess their wellbeing,” says Jim Hoffower, one of the nurses involved. “If they have had medication changes, we provide counsel on the effects and potential side effects they may encounter. It’s a great service to be providing as well as representing a ‘fellowship’ moment.” The church also will train members in CPR as requested, Hoffower adds. Betsy Davis, a member of Community United Methodist, says the church support can become like a second family. “This city is so transient, and people may not have family here who can accompany them to the doctor or hospital,” Davis says. “People need an advocate.” Church leaders also say they have the power—and the responsibility—to reach out beyond their congregations. Many host health support groups for people struggling with alcoholism, abusive relationships and a variety of health problems (find support groups near you on page 41 of this issue). Warwick United Church of Christ in Newport News, for example, provides a room for “Moms Helping Moms”, a group for family members of children fighting cancer. Linda Manning, a member of the church who lost a son to cancer, is one of its leaders. “The church just believes really strongly about having a strong presence in the community and reaching out when there’s a need,” Manning says. “This is a need. The church is a perfect, safe, peaceful place for people to come together. We can discuss our issues and concerns, educate each other and lean on each other.” That spirit of community is why leaders at Zion Prospect Baptist have screened the educational film on stroke for other congregations, not just their own. The presentation includes a pre- and post-film quiz on basic stroke facts, including how to live a healthier lifestyle and recognize early signs of heart disease and stroke. “You can really empower people,” Pastor Walter Johnson says, “and that is a way to make a great difference in their lives.”

Bon Secours Virginia Health System announced last month that the Virginia Deputy State Health Commissioner has issued a certificate of public need (COPN) to replace the existing Bon Secours DePaul Medical Center with a 124bed, state-of-the-art, full-service hospital. Plans call for the new 300,000-square-foot, $200-million facility to be located on the current hospital site at 150 Kingsley Lane in Norfolk.

Sentara Health Foundation Awards Half Million in Grants Sentara Health Foundation has awarded 27 grants totaling $561,986 to existing community programs promoting health and wellness from Virginia Beach to the Eastern Shore. The foundation was established in 1998 to improve health and quality of life in the region and to further Sentara’s not-for-profit mission of serving the community. Through its grants, the foundation aims to increase access to basic health services, improve pregnancy outcomes, build coalitions within communities, and serve the frail and at-risk elderly.

DePaul Earns Ultrasound Accreditation DePaul Medical Center has earned accreditation from the American College of Radiology for its ultrasound division. Lead ultrasound technologist Linda Marcano, along with staff sonographers, the administrative team and radiologists from Hampton Roads Radiology Associates, collaborated to achieve the accreditation.

Planned Parenthood Offers Testing Discount April is National Sexually Transmitted Disease Awareness Month, and this month Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Virginia will offer half-price testing for chlamydia and gonorrhea during a non-invasive, clothes-on visit.

I Chose Bon Secours Mitchell L. Shiffman, M.D. Liver Institute of Virginia

I chose Bon Secours because I want to put patient education first. The goal of the Bon Secours Health System is to promote wellness by educating patients about disease. In keeping with this philosophy, I strongly believe in spending as much time as necessary with each patient and his or her family to help them understand how the liver is affected by disease and the options available for treatment. Patients can make informed decisions about their healthcare and the medications they are willing to take only if they understand these issues. Educated patients are healthier patients and that is the Bon Secours way.

Norfolk Agency Seeks Locals to ‘STEP UP’ for Its Cause

O

n Sunday, April 25, The Up Center, one of Hampton Roads’ largest nonprofit agencies, will challenge local residents to race to the top of Norfolk’s Dominion Tower in the Step Up challenge starting at 10 a.m. The stair-climbing event will be the first of its kind in the region and is modeled on similar events held in New York City, Chicago and Seattle. “Stair climbing has a tremendous following throughout the country and beyond,” says Step Up Chair Andria McClellan. “We expect this to be a significant event in Hampton Roads and are anticipating 500 to 1,000 participants.” Participants will have the option of climbing Dominion Tower’s 25 stories in either a noncompetitive or a competitive category. Competitors can choose to climb the stairs once, twice, or—for elite athletes and military personnel—four times. All registrants can enter either as an individual or in team categories that include military, emergency responders, corporations, general teams and youth groups.

 “We’ve had a great response from various groups that are eager to compete against each other,” McClellan says. “Personnel from different branches of the military, different cities and different organizations all want to win the race in their category” in hopes of earning a medal. However, the grand prizes will be reserved for the top fundraisers who raise donations by finding sponsors for their climbs. Proceeds will benefit The Up Center, which serves more than 10,000 community members each year, including abused children, people with disabilities, veterans and more. Coast Guard GM1 David Figueroa, who serves as a mentor in the agency’s Team Up program, is among those participating in the stair climb. Says Figueroa: “I’ve really enjoyed the Team Up program more than I thought I would, and I see how it has changed my mentee for the better. I am hoping the Step Up event will help bring The Up Center’s programs more recognition, so they can help more people.” Andria McClellan, who’ll stair-climb to benefit the agency’s job training program, agrees: “Step Up is a unique and exciting way to raise awareness and funding for The Up Center. Plus, it also will be entertaining with other festivities, including performances from the Virginia International Tattoo, local Step [fitness] teams, and the rock band Butter.” In preparation for the stair climb, The Up Center and the Blocker Norfolk Family YMCA will offer a free boot camp, led by stair climbing pros, for all registrants who would like to train. Figueroa and some of his fellow guardsmen were happy to hear about the camp. When they participated in a trial run in Dominion Tower, they were surprised how intense stair climbing can be.
“It’s a lot of work,” he admitted. “It’s not as easy as you think.”

A Healthy Mouth Helps Ensure A Lifetime of Health

WRITTEN BY DR. SEBASTIANA GAGLIANO SPRINGMANN

A

ccording to the American Dental Association, most Americans enjoy excellent oral health and keep their natural teeth throughout their lives. But beyond the benefits of an attractive smile, does oral health really matter? You’ve probably heard the phrase “the oral–systemic link.” There is an important correlation between oral health and overall health. In other words, healthy mouth = healthy body. The same culprits behind gum disease, tooth decay and oral cancer are linked to heart disease, diabetes, obesity and other diseases. TAL DEN H Regular dental examinations and good oral hygiene at LT HEA AGE, home can prevent most dental disease. What should good VERY GE oral hygiene include? Here’s a look at what you can do at AT E A Y ST various life stages to maintain a healthy mouth and, ultimateEVER ly, a healthy body. AGE 0 TO 12 MONTHS A baby’s first tooth erupts between zero to 12 months of age, and he should have his first visit to the dentist by the first birthday. (Easy to remember: all firsts!) Parents should clean Baby’s gums with a wet washcloth after feedings (nursing or bottle) and begin brushing once any teeth have grown in. Avoid bedtime bottles (other than water), which can lead to baby-bottle tooth decay or “nursing cavities.” Tooth decay is always about the bacteria, and bacteria feed on sugars.

Sebastiana Gagliano Springmann, DDS, has practiced dentistry in Williamsburg since 1992. She attended New York University, the College of William and Mary and VCU Medical Center, formerly known as the Medical College of Virginia (MCV). Her volunteer work includes Smiles for Life, Donated Dental Services and Smiles for Success. She is an active supporter of William and Mary Athletics and the Heritage Humane Society.

1 TO 3

 

AGE YEARS From age one to three years, more primary (baby) teeth come in. Parents should brush their child’s teeth at least twice daily, limit juice and provide a frozen teething ring to help ease teething pain. Children can start learning to brush on their own around age two, but parents still need to supervise and/or do a second sweep of brushing themselves. Every six-month checkup with the child’s dentist is important. If any cavities are detected, removing the decay and placing fillings is important to keep the toddler’s mouth developing properly. You’ve all heard people say, “Oh, they’re only baby teeth.” Not so—they perform an important function, so keeping them is key.

3 TO 7

AGE YEARS Somewhere between three to seven years of age, a child begins to lose baby teeth and the first permanent molars begin to erupt. Thumb-sucking and other related habits can cause bite problems that will require correction with surgery or braces. Your child’s dentist will take radiographs to determine any areas of decay and evaluate whether the teeth and bones are forming properly. Sealants should also be placed on any teeth with deep grooves to help prevent chewing-surface cavities

7 TO 13

12 THE HEALTH JOURNAL

AGE YEARS A child will lose all his baby teeth between seven and 13 years of age. Regular brushing, dental checkups, fluoride treatments (as recommended by a dentist) plus daily flossing are part of a healthy routine. It may be time for a visit to the orthodontist for braces. If the child is active in any contact sports, a sports mouth guard should be used to prevent tooth breakage or loosening as well as trauma to the jaw or concussions.

A HEALTHY MOUTH Depends on What You Put in It To help prevent tooth decay and gum disease, eat a well-balanced diet based on the USDA food pyramid (www.mypyramid.gov), take dietary supplements as directed by your physician, and drink lots of water. These practices will also reduce your risk for heart disease, diabetes and obesity.


13 TO 25

AGE YEARS Adolescents and young adults need to brush and floss twice daily and also use a daily fluoride rinse. It’s a good idea to keep travel toothbrushes in backpacks, purses or briefcases for use at or after school and work. Limit sugary or starchy foods and soft drinks. Don’t smoke, and beware of oral piercing. Bacteria tend to cluster around metal piercings, not to mention that biting on metal can crack the back teeth. During this time, an oral surgeon should be consulted for the removal of wisdom teeth.

ADULTHOOD

Here’s a look at some of the

ORAL HEALTH ISSUES that affect men and women disproportionately: WOMEN Eating disorders—bulimia can destroy tooth enamel, while anorexia can deplete the body of vital nutrients and affect the health of teeth and gums.

Oral contraceptives—progesterone-containing birth control pills can inflame gum tissue by elevating the body’s reaction to the toxins that dental plaque creates. Pregnancy—increases risk for gingivitis and pregnancy tumors in the mouth.

Menopause—hormone changes and certain medications can cause dry mouth.

MEN Tooth loss—Men are more likely than women to experience tooth loss. The average male will lose 5.4 teeth by age 72. Smoking—Men who smoke will lose an average of 12 teeth by age 72!

Gum disease—Men are more likely than women to develop gum (periodontal) disease and oral cancer.

Along with all the other health concerns adults face, oral health needs, too, may become more complex. Cavities can form around existing fillings, and root decay is common. Tooth and gum sensitivity may develop, crowns may be needed to strengthen damaged teeth, and gum disease—a major cause of tooth loss—may require treatment. Ninety-five percent of oral cancers occur in people over age 40, so be sure to have a thorough oral cancer screening at each six-month dental checkup.

SENIORS

People in this age group may need replacement fillings and crowns as teeth break or wear. Implants can replace missing teeth, and much like a new knee or hip, implants can let you function normally again without relying on dentures. Many seniors suffer from dry mouth, whether caused by age or medications like decongestants, antidepressants and blood pressure medicines. Saliva rinses away food particles and neutralizes harmful acids, therefore playing a major role in cavity prevention. Your dentist can help you select special products to help alleviate dry mouth symptoms. Drink lots of water and avoid sweets, tobacco, alcohol and caffeine to fight gum disease, dry mouth and decay. (Sugar-free chewing gum and some other products that your dentist can recommend may help.) Those in this age category should use a topical fluoride as directed by their dentist, and dental tools such as rotary brushes (as they have large handles) and irrigators (such as Water-Piks™) if arthritis makes handling a toothbrush or floss difficult. More frequent visits to the dentist may be needed to combat gum disease and root decay.

Wine May Help Women Keep Weight in Check

New research suggests moderate alcohol consumption, particularly wine, could stave off obesity. WRITTEN BY MEGAN BROOKS NEW YORK (REUTERS HEALTH)

L

ight to moderate alcohol consumption, especially red wine, is not only good for a woman’s heart, it’s also good for her waistline, according to a study reported in March. The study started out with nearly 20,000 trim, middleaged and older women. Over time, women who drank alcohol in moderation put on less weight and were less apt to become overweight compared to non-drinkers. This was true even after taking into account various lifestyle and dietary factors that might influence a woman’s weight. Red wine seemed best at keeping weight in check, but white wine, beer and spirits also had some benefit. “Our study results showed that middle-aged and older women who have normal body weight initially and consume light-to-moderate amount of alcohol could maintain their drinking habits without gaining more weight compared with similar women who did not drink any alcohol,” Dr. Lu Wang from the division of preventive medicine,

14 THE HEALTH JOURNAL

Red wine seemed best at keeping weight in check, but white wine, beer and spirits also had some benefit.

Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, noted in an e-mail to Reuters Health. Many prior studies have suggested that moderate drinking—usually defined as a drink or two a day—can be a healthy habit, particularly with regard to heart health, while heavy drinking can harm health. The new study, published in the March 8 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine, is the first to examine ties between alcohol consumption by a normal-weight individual and the risk of becoming overweight or obese. The women were all at least 39 years old when the study began. About 38 percent said they did not drink alcohol; 33 percent said they drank less than five grams daily (a standard drink has about 10 grams of alcohol); 20 percent drank from five to under 15 grams daily; six percent drank 15 to less than 30 grams daily; and three percent downed 30 grams of alcohol or more daily (about two to three drinks per day or more).


Put another way, Wang said an initially trim woman who did not drink alcohol had about a 43 percent chance of becoming overweight or obese over 13 years. Her risk fell to 33 percent if she drank 15 to 30 grams of alcohol a day. Over an average of about 13 years, the women generally gained weight. However, the teetotalers gained the most weight, with weight gain decreasing with increasing amount of alcohol consumed. Women who did not drink gained an average of 3.63 kilograms (eight pounds) compared with 1.55 kilograms (3.4 pounds) for those who consumed 30 grams of alcohol or more each day. During the 13 years the initially normal-weight women were followed, 41 percent became overweight or obese. Women who drank 15 to less than 30 grams per day had the lowest risk of becoming overweight or obese, which was 30 percent less than that of non-drinkers. Put another way, Wang said an initially trim woman who did not drink alcohol had about a 43 percent chance of becoming overweight or obese over 13 years. Her risk fell to 33 percent if she drank 15 to 30 grams of alcohol a day. Women who drank higher amounts of alcohol were generally more physically active, weighed slightly less at the outset and were more apt to be smokers, than other women. However, the association between drinking and a reduced risk of becoming overweight or obese remained strong after accounting for these factors. This suggests that alcohol may independently affect body weight beyond its relationship with diet and lifestyle factors. There are several reasons why alcohol might help women stay Job #43808 trim, Wang told Reuters Health. In the current study, women Job #43808 consuming more alcohol ate less, particularly carbohydrates— Size: 3.8”x 4.4” Size: 3.8”x 4.4” Job #43808 4c a finding seen in other studies. Moreover, it’s been shown that 4c Size: 3.8”x 4.4” Job #43808 women tend to expend more energy after drinking alcohol— 4c Size: 3.8”x 4.4” more so than that contained in the alcohol. “Taken together, 4c regular alcohol consumption in light-to-moderate amount may lead to a net energy loss among women,” Wang said.

ould you place a full glass of water on a table with wobbly legs? Of course not—because the glass might fall, spill or break. The same principle applies to your body. Your body needs a strong foundation to maintain balance well into your later years. Good balance is important at any stage of life, but especially among the elderly. Balance worsens as we age, and falling becomes a major concern. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one out of every three Americans over the age of 65 will fall each year, and among individuals 65 to 84, falls account for 87 percent of all bone fractures and are the second leading cause of spinal cord and brain injury. The most common types of injuries sustained during a fall include fractures of the hip, spine and wrist as well as head trauma.


BALANCE EXERCISES FOR EVERY DAY: BASIC MOVES Research shows that muscle strengthening and balance retraining exercises can reduce the risk of fallrelated injuries by as much as 45 percent. Nevertheless, balance exercises are often overlooked as part of a total body workout. I recommend incorporating specific balance exercises, like the ones below, into your current workout or daily routine. (If you have severe balance problems or an orthopedic condition, consult your doctor before performing these exercises.)

One-leg stands 1) First, clear your environment of any obstacles that

may interfere with your balance training. (Note: Any person whose balance is severely diminished should not perform these exercises alone.) Begin by standing on one foot. Time yourself for 10 to 30 seconds, then switch standing legs. If you are a novice, hold onto something sturdy, like a wall or table, with both hands. As you progress, and your balance improves, you can decrease the amount of support by using one hand for stability, then one finger, then no hands. Even as you progress and become more comfortable with this routine, always do these exercises near a wall or a sturdy object that can provide support if needed.

2) Once you’ve mastered standing on one leg without support for more than 30 seconds, try the first training exercise again but with your eyes closed.

Tandem walk Place one foot directly in front of the other and walk a straight line (as if you were taking a sobriety test). Once you can do this, strive to comfortably do the same in reverse. Those at a more advanced level can perform the tandem walk with their eyes closed.

ADVANCED TRAINING Once you’ve mastered the basic balance exercises above, consider using some balance tools such as a BOSU, balance board, foam roller or stability discs. A certified personal trainer can show you how to use these tools for maximum benefit.

Try this move: Stand on a BOSU or two balance discs. Have someone gently push you while you try to keep your balance. Then, play catch with a lightweight medicine ball (if you don’t have a medicine ball, a basketball will work). You can also slowly lower into and out of a squatting position while catching the ball and returning it to your partner. Don’t be surprised if you initially have trouble just standing on a BOSU or the balance discs. It’s unlikely that your balance will improve after a few short sessions. Aim for 15 minutes of balance training daily, but know that it will take time and commitment to achieve better balance.

• Balance on one foot while waiting in line at the grocery store, talking on the telephone or brushing your teeth. • Stand up and sit down without using your hands. • Sit on a stability ball while working at your desk or watching TV.

Adolescent Migraine Headaches Clinical Research Study

Does your child or adolescent experience migraine attacks? If you have answered YES to this question, you may be interested in more learning about two clinical studies in your area. These studies will be assessing the safety and effectiveness of an investigational medication for treating symptoms of a migraine attack in children ages 6 to 17 years. Your child may qualify for one of the studies listed below:

Single Attack Study

12 Month Study

Looking for children or adolescents who: • Are 6 to 17 years of age • Have experienced migraine attacks for more than six months • Have between one and eight migraine attacks every month

Looking for children or adolescents who: • Are 12 to 17 years of age • Have experienced migraine attacks for more than six months • Have between one and eight migraine attacks every month

There are additional study requirements that your child or adolescent must meet to qualify for participation. The study doctor will go over the study details with you and will determine if your child or adolescent is eligible to participate in these clinical research studies. The study doctor will also explain the risks and benefits associated with these clinical research studies. If eligible, participants will receive the investigational medication and study-related procedures at no charge.

MINDFUL EATING: Part of the

Yoga Way of Life WRITTEN BY DR. JENNIFER DALY

W

e all lose our minds from time to time. We forget our car keys or misplace an important file. We lose track of a thought or go blank when trying to recall a person’s name. We get caught up in daydreaming and miss our exit on the highway. We may even discover a bruise and have no recollection of the injury. Such mindlessness is all too familiar. It occurs when our minds go on autopilot and we stop paying attention to the present moment. Mindfulness, on the other hand, is a much different state of mind that brings a deliberate awareness of whatever is happening right now in our mind, body, emotions and environment. It is a quality of mind that we all inherently possess. We tap into our innate mindfulness when we simply witness, without judgment or criticism, the various sensations, thoughts and emotions that arise as we move through our lives. With increased mindfulness, we become more attuned to habitual patterns of thinking, feeling and reacting that cause us problems. We begin to recognize how our own mindless reactions have a profound effect on not only our physical health but also our emotional and psychological well-being. With mindfulness, we use kind and compassionate awareness to slow down these reactions, disengage our autopilot and guide ourselves toward better choices.

Mindfulness allows us to recognize that food is just food, and is not our enemy, even if we’re struggling with our weight.

A healthy relationship with food must come

from within

Practicing Mindfulness at Mealtimes Mindful eating brings this mindful attention to our responses to food and its preparation. We pay close and careful attention to our inner experiences of eating so that we can respect our body’s cues and inner wisdom. This mindfulness allows us to recognize that food is just food, and is not our enemy, even if we’re struggling with our weight. We begin to realize that it is our habitual reactions to food—when we’re on autopilot—that cause us problems with eating and weight. Through mindfulness we discover how stress and self-criticism interfere with our ability to be fully present in our lives. Many of us have a ceaseless preoccupation with our weight and appearance. We’re dissatisfied with our bodies. We chronically restrict our diets and berate ourselves for overeating or gaining weight. We are always focused on some better future in which we imagine ourselves to be thinner, happier, calmer and more satisfied. Trouble is, this future never seems to arrive. It’s as though we get caught up with daydreaming and miss our proverbial exit to a healthier and happier life. Mindfulness brings us back to today so that we can cultivate our full potential. Our physical and psychological survival depends on a regular intake of food, water, light, sound, love and other things from our environment. How well or poorly we relate to these things determines how happy or unhappy our lives will be. Mindful eating helps us to let go of unhealthy responses to food and eating and replace them with healthy alternatives. With mindful attention to our eating habits, we can break our dissatisfaction with food, ourselves and our bodies and begin to cultivate the pleasure and satisfaction that we need. We learn to be present while eating. Continued on page 20 THE HEALTH JOURNAL

Continued from page 19 We see, touch, smell and fully experience food and don’t miss these opportunities to find satisfaction and enjoyment. We replace habits that cause food to go into our bodies without thought—like eating while watching TV, driving a car or even standing in front of the refrigerator—with a focus on the colors, textures, smells, tastes and sounds that food and its preparation comprise. As we become more mindful of our moment-to-moment experiences, we discover the satisfaction that comes from appreciating all that the preparation, sharing and celebration of food represents. We go away from meals feeling full and satisfied. So, pay attention to how, what and when you eat. Do you eat while you are talking, driving, working or watching television?

Yoga encourages you to sharpen your awareness of yourself and your body to increase mindfulness. Off the yoga mat, you become more mindful of what you eat, how much you eat and how it feels to be full. Yoga and mindful eating can teach you that your body is your ally and, like food, is not your enemy. You’ll become more aware of your body and you’ll gain better appetite control. Through the quiet and calm of your yoga practice, you’ll learn to listen to and trust your body—accepting its needs while gently encouraging change. You may also become more open to making important changes in yourself and your body. If you want to change destructive eating patterns or thoughts, yoga is the place to start. Yoga can help you cultivate an open, accepting relationship with yourself and your body that allows you to start—and maintain—the realistic changes you need to lose weight and keep it off.

10 Simple Ways To

GO GREEN 1. Carry a Canteen Swap plastic bottles for a stainless steel canteen. Plastic bottles—especially the hard, reusable kind—may contain biphosphenol-A (BPA), while disposables usually end up in our landfills. (Try the Green Bottle, shown here in “Apple Blossoms” design, for $15.99 at www.greenbottle.com.)

2. Go Organic

INTERVIEW BY PAGE BISHOP-FREER PHOTOGRAPHY BY BRIAN FREER

L

ast month major health agencies investigated reports of a suspected smallpox outbreak in eastern Uganda. Though it turned out to be a false alarm, the world sat up and took notice. One of the most virulent diseases the world has ever seen, smallpox has seldom made headlines since 1979, when the World Health Organization, which had launched an attack on the disease decades earlier, declared it eradicated. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “a single, confirmed case of smallpox would be considered an emergency.” What many people don’t know, though, is that Colonial America, particularly Boston, served as a testing ground for smallpox inoculation well before it gained approval from London’s Royal Society, a premier institute for scientific research and discovery. In The Pox and the Covenant: Mather, Franklin and the Epidemic that Changed America’s Destiny (Sourcebooks, April 2010), local author Tony Williams reveals how the smallpox epidemic of 1721 and the ensuing debate over inoculation changed America forever, depleting the authority of the Protestant ministry and shifting societal attitudes towards a more secular view of liberty and self-governance. Williams says the most startling finding in his research lay not in the 1721 smallpox epidemic itself, which began with the arrival of the HMS Seahorse in Boston’s harbor early that April. Rather, Williams became fascinated with the fierce debate over smallpox inoculation that arose between the minis-

ters (including Reverend Cotton Mather) and the physicians of Boston. Who sided with science and who attacked inoculation using spiritual evidence may surprise you, Williams says. What’s more, Benjamin Franklin, a key figure in the American Enlightenment, in his younger days publicly attacks inoculation to disparage the ministry and, as Williams puts it, “really knock them down a notch in society,” a little known fact that inevitably places Franklin “on the wrong side of history.” In the following interview, Williams—whose East Coast book tour began April 1—shares details from his new book, and he has allowed us to share with you an excerpt (starting at right).

What sparked the idea for his book: I was working on a piece on Benjamin Franklin, and I’d read a number of biographies and kept coming upon the mention of this 1721 smallpox epidemic in which Franklin plays a role as a very young man. But it was frustrating, because there’d be only a few pages on it and then they’d move on to his later career. I was just fascinated with it. My editor and I were going around on book ideas, and I just kind of threw the idea out there. They said: “That’s it! That’s the one we want to publish.”

Why smallpox was so horrific: First, it was so deadly. Death rates for seasoned populations [those who had some exposure to the virus from previous epidemics] ran as high as 15 to 30 percent. Second, it was highly communicable. In 1721, most of the people who did not have immunity caught the disease. Eventually 6,000 people got smallpox in Boston—a city of 11,000. So it spread very quickly. The other 5,000 probably had immunity from a previous epidemic. Why things get hot in Boston: As more and more people seek inoculation, it sets off a huge firestorm of protest. Not only from the people in town, but more surprisingly—almost shockingly—from the doctors. They argue that it’s untested, but they also make religious arguments. They argue that if people are predestined or fated to get sick, then that is the will of God and you cannot intervene. Because if you do, God, who is already punishing us with this epidemic, will unleash further plagues against us in different forms than this disease and ruin the town.


Williams takes on

What surprised him most in his research: While the doctors make scriptural arguments against inoculations, for the most part the ministers do not. In fact it was Cotton Mather who acts very scientifically to test inoculation. It’s the opposite of what you would expect.

Where Benjamin Franklin comes in: Brothers James and Benjamin Franklin are 21 and 17 respectively during the debate over inoculation. James opens a newspaper [the New England Courant] that summer to, well, sell newspapers. He really focuses exclusively on inoculation and serves as a mouthpiece for the opposition. He uses the paper to attack the power of the ministry and gives the doctors a platform to say whatever they want. James was so impetuous he was jailed, and Benjamin takes over the paper, continuing the attack against the authorities. He later comes to support inoculation when his own four-year-old son dies of smallpox. He even writes his regret in the pages of his autobiography, in which he urges parents to get their children inoculated, even though there was still opposition to it up through the time of the Revolution. People still felt like they were introducing smallpox to people through the practice of inoculation. How the debate changed Puritan society: Neither the covenant to form a city upon a hill nor the authority of the ministers could survive such withering attacks that were, for the most part, unprecedented. This epidemic shatters the covenant. Authority declines. There remains a general respect for ministers as men and women of God, much like today, but not reverence. The covenant becomes more secularized, focused on natural rights, self-government and liberty. The idea of the covenant survived, but it changed as a result of this epidemic and debate over inoculation.

Challenges of writing and researching this book: The research process was actually quite easy because I had access to every document right here in Colonial Williamsburg. I wanted to go to Boston, but I had no excuse to. I found every pamphlet, diary, autobiography, newspaper and letter right here. I read every book on medical history, disease, Puritan society and Colonial history that I could find to learn both the medical side of things as well as the historical side. It was compelling as an author to read the sources and Interview continued on page 24

From Chapter 15: “Cotton Mather, You Dog, Damn You!” [As the year 1721 comes to a close, the smallpox epidemic is waning but has left nearly 1,000 Bostonians dead and the covenant in tatters. Reverend Cotton Mather and Dr. Zabdiel Boylston had continued to inoculate patients well into the fall despite repeated warnings from the Selectmen—a group of local representatives who’d sided with the physicians—and ongoing attacks published in the Franklin brothers’ New England Courant.]

Cotton Mather felt chronically hassled throughout the late autumn as hundreds perished in Boston and thousands lay sick. The freeholders had decided against him and Boylston by voting against inoculated persons coming to town. Meanwhile, the interminable animosity against the procedure was expressed in sustained attacks upon him and Boylston. The divisions in the town persisted. The dispute, however, was not one that could be confined to the pages of a newspaper or pamphlet any longer. Mather passionately confronted James Franklin in the street. More ominously, there was a plot afoot to assassinate the Puritan minister. Mather found the opposition to the inoculation experiment unintelligible. It had worked successfully scores of times while those who caught the disease in the common way had an atrocious death rate. Still, he would attempt to reason with the ignorant and persuade them to accept the plain truth: “The sottish Excerpt continued on page 27 THE HEALTH JOURNAL

SMALLPOX: A SHORT HISTORY 1350 BC

First recorded smallpox epidemic

1157 BC Mummified head of Egyptian pharaoh Ramses V bears first physical evidence of smallpox. From there the disease is carried by traders to India and China.

1012-1063 AD

Written accounts of inoculation are found in ancient Buddhist texts.

Middle Ages Smallpox epidemics happen frequently throughout Europe.

1500s

European explorers bring smallpox to the Americas, decimating native populations.

1670

Inoculation is practiced in the Turkish Empire. It’s already common practice in China and India.

1714-1716

Europeans visit Istanbul and write letters to London’s Royal Society describing the technique; British physicians show little interest.

1721-1722

1754

1796

While Reverend Cotton Mather and Dr. Zabdiel Boylston inoculate people in Boston, Lady Mary Wortley Montague of England (after suffering an episode of smallpox in 1715) inoculates her four-year-old daughter in front of physicians in the Royal Court. Inoculation is being tested “simultaneously yet independently” in Britain and the Colonies, notes Williams. The French-Indian War marks the first use of smallpox as biological warfare, as it is used to wipe out the Native American population. English Physician Edward Jenner coins term “vaccine” after discovering that the milder cowpox virus can help prevent smallpox; by turn of the century, 100,000 people worldwide are vaccinated using Jenner’s method.

1949

Last smallpox outbreak in U.S. reported in Texas; one person dies.

1959-1967

Global health agencies launch attack on smallpox, hoping to eradicate it.

1972

Routine smallpox vaccination ends in U.S.

1979

World Health Organization declares smallpox cured; inoculation ceases worldwide.

24 THE HEALTH JOURNAL

Continued from page 23 put all the facts together in a dramatic way, as dramatic as possible for a nonfiction work. I like to say that it’s nonfiction that reads like a novel. I hope readers will agree with that. The role of women in the epidemic: The women of Boston obviously played an extremely important role in this story. They took care of their families, used their herbal medicine books that had been passed down from earlier generations. You can just imagine them by the fireside, caring for their child who might be dying of smallpox. You imagine the agony they would have felt when burying that child. There were no sources for those stories, though, so I relied on facts of how women of the time lived. What about Native Americans? In 1620, the first Puritans, the Pilgrims, were expecting to find a lot of Native Americans, and they were just gone. There’d been an epidemic a year before [the Pilgrims’ arrival] and the death rate among Native Americans was 80 to 90 percent because they had never been exposed to the virus.

What he hopes readers will take away: This story is not really about the smallpox virus; it’s about human beings. I wanted to show how the people of Boston would generally react during an epidemic. Would you flee? Would you stay? Would you go into church and pray? How would you react to your neighbors if someone next door were getting inoculated? Would you be willing to do it yourself? Mather has to face his own son wanting to get inoculated. Would you have the courage to let your son do that, and if not, would he defy his father and do it anyway to survive? These are all very human stories, and that is ultimately what the book is about.

His favorite books: 1776, David McCullough; The Devil in the White City, Erik Larson; In the Heart of the Sea, Nathaniel Philbrick; Krakatoa, Simon Winchester; Will in the World: A Biography of Shakespeare, Stephen Greenblatt; Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien; Iliad and The Odyssey, Homer; Aeneid, Virgil; and Beowulf.  If not an author, what he’d be: If I were not a teacher or author (and if I weren’t married!), I might be a Roman Catholic priest. 

His heroes include: Firefighters, police officers, health-care professionals, soldiers, priests and ministers—those who live their lives to serve others day in and day out. Some of my favorite heroes from history are Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, the 300 Spartan soldiers who stood at Thermoplyae [during the Greco-Persia War, 480 BC], and George Washington and the Revolutionary patriots who sacrificed so much that we might have liberty.  How he handles the stress of a looming deadline: By sitting in my library and writing to meet the deadline. There is no substitute for hard work and perseverance in any job.  Favorite quote? Read the classics and great biographies and you’ll find my favorite quotes in there.

Medication Fears May Lead to Worse Side Effects

In one study, patients with rheumatoid arthritis who expected medication side effects were more likely to experience them. WRITTEN BY ANNE HARDING NEW YORK (REUTERS HEALTH)

I

t may not be surprising, but a new study offers some proof that patients who are worried about their medications are more likely to have side effects from them. The study involved patients with a particular kind of arthritis. While more research has to be done in patients with other illnesses to know for sure, “my guess would be that this is happening across a wide range of drugs,” Dr. Yvonne Nestoriuc of Philipps-University Marburg in Germany, the study’s lead author, told

Reuters Health. “This is really something that happens in a lot of patient populations.” While most medication side effects are not life-threatening or seriously harmful, she and her colleagues note in the journal Arthritis Care & Research, they can still be “frightening and distressing” to patients, and can also lead to patients not taking drugs as recommended. People with a variety of illnesses who don’t feel their medications are necessary and are concerned about their side effects

are known to be less likely to take these drugs as directed, the researchers add. To investigate whether these beliefs might be related to experiencing side effects as well, Nestoriuc and her team had 100 rheumatoid arthritis patients complete the “Beliefs about Medicines Questionnaire,” which explores general and specific beliefs about the necessity and risks of medication. Patients also reported any side effects related to their rheumatoid arthritis medication and how much they were bothered by these symptoms. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease characterized by inflammation that leads to stiff, swollen and painful joints. It affects some 20 million people, according to the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society. At the study’s outset, 77 of the patients reported having been bothered by side effects. Eightyseven of the original 100 study participants were followed up with at six months; 45 of these patients, or 52 percent, reported being bothered by side effects at this point. The patients who had concerns about their medications—for example, agreeing with the statement that “having to take arthritis medications worries me”—were more likely to have reported having side effects, both at the study’s outset and if they started a new drug during the six-month study period. Side effects typically included rashes, gastrointestinal discomfort and headaches.

“Starting a new drug is a specifically risky time because people tend to misattribute preexisting bothersome but [benign] symptoms as side effects of the new drug,” — Dr. Yvonne Nestoriuc

Pronunciation: nO-sE-bO

These patients were also more likely to report these side effects to their doctors, take nonprescription medications to deal with them, and change their medication dosages on their own. The only other factor that influenced the likelihood of reporting side effects was age. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis “who are especially concerned about their arthritis medications, or who expect side effects, are at greater risk of experiencing them,” the researchers say. “Starting a new drug is a specifically risky time because people tend to misattribute pre-existing bothersome but [benign] symptoms as side effects of the new drug,” Nestoriuc said. Doctors may be able to help their patients avoid side effects by talking with them about their concerns before prescribing a new medication, she added, and helping them to get a more “realistic view about the drugs.”

THE “NOCEBO EFFECT”

The “nocebo” effect occurs when patients taking medications experience adverse side effects unrelated to the specific pharmacological action of the drug. The “nocebo” effect is associated with the person’s prior expectations of adverse effects from treatment as well as the conditioning in which the person learns from prior experiences to associate a medication with certain somatic symptoms.

Products vs. Procedures

Topical products can be effective, but none can match the results gained through professional skin treatments.

WRITTEN BY DR. KEITH W. SCHUMANN

While many topical products can treat the signs of aging, none can deliver the results of non-invasive or minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. Creams that claim they are “better than Botox� do not even come close to matching the results of botulinum injections, the most performed cosmetic procedure in the United States. Skin lightening lotions can diminish the appearance of brown spots, but laser procedures often eliminate them. Calming masks may decrease facial redness, but light-based treatments produce far more dramatic results. Americans spend almost $10 billion on topical skin care products each year, and it’s easy to wish that the right cream would work wonders. In the last few years, developers of topical products have made great strides, and some positive results can be expected when using certain products. But with the right combination of cosmetic procedures, something closer to magic can happen.

Q

Which procedure will help me obtain comparable results?

A

There is no single optimal procedure for any individual, and often the right combination of procedures yields the best results. For this patient we used a high-intensity pulsed light device. Skin color, depth of damage and age are a few of the many variables considered when choosing the dermatologic tools that will produce the best results for each patient. Your dermatologist can advise you about the procedures that would be most appropriate for your skin.

If I opt for a cosmetic procedure, should I be using topical products as well?

A

The right topical products are indispensable as part of a daily routine and before and after cosmetic procedures. Sunblocks and antioxidant creams can defend your skin against the elements. A good moisturizer reduces fine lines and helps your skin look brighter, and an age-fighting topical product with a proven active ingredient can produce modest improvements. Other products can assist in preparing the skin for cosmetic procedures, minimize the chance of complications and often help maintain the results after treatment. It is best to use a limited number of topical products, especially anti-aging ones, because the skin can get easily irritated from overuse. When this happens, signs of aging such as fine lines and roughened texture become more apparent, not less.

EVMS Program Focuses on Autism’s

“Transition Age”

Month

Written By Drs. Stephen I. Deutsch and Maria Urbano

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) refers to a range of neurodevelopmental conditions that include: Autistic disorder—often diagnosed in infancy or very early toddlerhood. These people might show certain physical characteristics such as repetitive movements—like hand flapping—or they may have a very restricted area of interest, e.g. computer games, etc. People with autistic disorder typically have trouble socializing and communicating, which causes problems in many aspects of daily life—including forming friendships, finding a job and living independently. Asperger’s syndrome— might be recognized later in childhood and is associated with normal or above-normal intelligence and relatively good language skills, although people with Asperger’s have problems with some aspects of communication. For instance, they might miss the punchline of jokes and focus on the concrete meaning of words. Pervasive Developmental Disorder/Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS)—a general description for conditions that fit on the autism spectrum but do not match fully with either autistic disorder or Asperger’s syndrome.

pril is Autism Awareness Month—a chance to look at how far the medical community has come in the diagnosis and treatment of people with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) while also reflecting on the challenges still ahead. The past decade brought significant progress. Doctors can identify a child’s autistic characteristics much earlier, and the number of services and programs available to help those children develop more fully has grown substantially. However, For more information services to help adolescents and young adults with ASD on the EVMS Autism flourish aren’t as abundant as are those for young chilSpectrum Disorders Prodren. gram for Older Adolescents Late adolescence and early adulthood is and Young Adults, go to normally a time of significant changes as www.evms.edu/psychiatry adolescents and young adults make the transition from the family home to living or call (757) 446-5888. independently. For those with autism, these changes can be particularly difficult and disruptive. People with ASD have problems socializing and communicating, which can make these individuals feel isolated and misunderstood. They have an especially difficult time when major life changes occur such as graduating from high school or changes in daily schedules or routines. Resources that can provide support begin to dwindle once a person with autism graduates from the public or private education system. That’s why Eastern Virginia Medical School’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences has launched the Autism Spectrum Disorders Program for Adolescents and Young Adults. The program aims to address the relative lack of services for the “transitional” age group of ASD patients. Here are a few of the program’s goals: • Offer clinical assessments for young adults with ASD.

• Identify resources that can help during this time of transition, such as social-skills training, driver education and services that can help with independent living.

• Increase the number of clinicians qualified to care for the growing ASD population by encouraging medical students, residents and others to participate in the program.

• Provide an interdisciplinary approach to addressing the complex clinical and social problems of autism. • Aggressively seek funding for research programs that could ultimately improve quality of life for people with ASD.

Dr. Stephen I. Deutsch is a professor and chair of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Eastern Virginia Medical School. Dr. Maria Urbano is an associate professor of clinical psychiatry and behavioral sciences and is director of the EVMS Autism Spectrum Disorders Program for Adolescents and Young Adults.
