Yoga epigenetics

There are approximately 14,500 clinics and programs in America that provide treatment for all types of addictive behaviors we call "Reward Deficiency Syndrome (RDS)". While most of these have good intentions to provide needed help to the victims of RDS, we propose herein that most of their efforts, especially during periods of aftercare, are not based on the existing scientific evidence. We use "aftercare" to refer to any form of program or therapy following primary treatment including 12-Step programs. Very few programs actually provide any evidenced-based treatment approaches during this most vulnerable period in recovery...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Although many diagnostic terms are used for pediatric chronic pain, evidence suggests a common thread of signal amplification, leading to the unifying term 'amplified pain syndromes'. Ongoing research provides new insights into biopsychosocial contributors and treatments for pediatric amplified pain syndromes. RECENT FINDINGS: Basic science indicates a complex interplay of genetic, epigenetic, neurochemical, endocrine, and inflammatory contributors, along with environmental and psychological factors...

BACKGROUND: Epigenetic programming and epigenetic mechanisms driven by environmental factors are thought to play an important role in human health and ageing. Global DNA methylation has been postulated as an epigenetic marker for epidemiological studies as it is reflective of changes in gene expression linked to disease. How epigenetic mechanisms are affected by psychological, sociological and biological determinants of health still remains unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between socio-economic and lifestyle factors and epigenetic status, as measured by global DNA methylation content, in the pSoBid cohort, which is characterized by an extreme socio-economic and health gradient...
