A glass of wine for the heart

A glass of wine for the heart

Prevention 6 December, 2019

Because of its antioxidants that fight bad cholesterol and promote good cholesterol, wine can prevent heart disease.

When consumed in moderation, this beverage can reduce the risk of different types of cardiovascular disease. This is due to the resveratrol it contains, an antioxidant that slows aging and prevents coronary artery disease, damage to blood vessels and blood clots. With these benefits, people often ask, “What is the most recommended type of wine?”

As the Saludalia website states, there actually is not any evidence that proves that red wine is better for your health than other types of wine, such as white wine, or beer. However, throughout its production process, red wine absorbs more resveratrol because it ferments longer with the grape’s skin. If you want to receive the benefits of antioxidants without consuming alcoholic beverages, as the Mayo Clinic recommends, include peanuts, blueberries, cranberries and juice made from natural grapes part of your daily diet.

How to treat microtia

How to treat microtia

Harmony in health 2 December, 2019

This congenital condition prevents the external ear from completely forming, either through deformities or by not forming at all.

Microtia mostly affects newborns and its main cause is associated with a combination of inherited traits and environmental factors that make the ear malform. It is usually diagnosed along with aural atresia, which is the absence of the external ear canal. While this condition can occur in both ears, according to a study conducted by the Institute of Human Genetics at Pontifical Xavierian University in Bogota, 90% of cases only affect one ear.

Some aesthetic treatment alternatives include prostheses and reconstructive surgery, as well as auditory stimulation by bone conduction to treat hearing loss. Non-surgical options include using headbands or elastic bands with ear sound processors. Most importantly, a specialist should be seen in order to determine the degree of microtia and the appropriate procedure for each patient.
