Try New Things:
The 39 Best Health and Fitness Apps by Jeff Cattel and Zach Watson

We spend too much time staring at our phones-just ask the pedestrians we almost walk into on a daily basis. If scrolling through your Newsfeed or swiping right were Olympic sports, we'd definitely take home a medal. But in reality, the only things getting a workout in either case are our thumbs. That's not to say your phone can't help you lead a healthier, happier life. You just need to know the right apps to download. 

Before you fall down the rabbit hole that is the app store, check out this list of the best health and fitness apps. These guys have tested out hundreds before whittling it down to the 39 that are really worth checking out. 

Did You Know?
Can Medical Marijuana Help End the Opioid Epidemic? by Alexandra Sifferlin

Like many people, economist W. David Bradford says he was under the impression that  medical marijuana  was something only young people would be interested in. At least, that's what he thought until his own  research  began showing otherwise.

In mid-July, he and Ashley C. Bradford, his co-researcher and daughter, published one of the more compelling studies about medical marijuana to date. Their report, which ran in the journal Health Affairs, looked at data on prescriptions filled by Medicare enrollees from 2010 to 2013-and found that older people who qualified for Medicare were, where appropriate, making use of medical pot. Not only that, they also found that when states legalized medical marijuana, prescriptions dropped significantly for painkillers and other drugs for which pot may be an alternative. Doctors in a state where marijuana was legal prescribed an average of 1,826 fewer doses of painkillers per year.

Treatments We Offer:
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the leading cause of death and disability in the United States. About 70 - 90% of TBI cases are classified as mild, and up to 25% of affected patients will not recover and suffer chronic neurocognitive impairments. The main pathology in these cases involves diffuse brain injuries, which are hard to detect by anatomical imaging yet noticeable in functional imaging that measures tissue metabolism in the brain.
Many studies show the effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in improving brain function  and quality of life in mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) patients suffering chronic neurocognitive impairments. The common conclusion is that HBOT can induce neuroplasticity, leading to repair of chronically impaired brain functions and improved quality of life in mTBI patients with prolonged post-concussion syndrome (PCS) at late chronic stage. Studies also reveal that HBOT can reduce cognitive impairment related to memory performance and connectivity using functional MRI.
Using Dr. Hughes' protocol, patients at our TBI treatment facilities will optimally receive HBOT therapies before and after PRP injections or infusions, along with other healing modalities such as cranial osteopathic treatment, IV nutrition and hydration, and other adjunctive therapies to aid in neuro-regeneration.
