The Face of HIVAIDS Then and Now
 
02:38
HIV Equal Online Senior Editor, Tyler Curry, created a short film about the difference between the HIV of today versus the AIDS of yesterday. This is dedicated to the long-term survivors and the ones we lost in the fight. More than three decades have passed since AIDS first captured global attention and put a name to the epidemic that terrified communities. In the past 35 years, much has changed, much has not, and more than 35 million people globally have died from HIV-related causes. The epidemic began being recognized in June 1981 when the first report of five young gay men succumbing to a rare lung infection was published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Within days, reports of similar infections among gay men and clusters of a rare cancer, Kaposi's sarcoma, in New York and California, were reported to the CDC, and that precipitated the establishment of the CDC Task Force on Kaposi’s Sarcoma and Opportunistic Infections. As more gay men succumbed to the mysterious disease, the ailment was dubbed a “gay cancer” by the end of the month and, within six months, 121 men out of 270 reported cases had died. The disease wasn’t officially named until the following year when AIDS, or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, was used for the first time on Sept. 24, 1982, by the CDC. Beyond ravaging the body, an AIDS diagnosis in the 1980s was a prognosis for death. For many people, it also meant rejection from and abandonment by their communities and families. No one knew what was causing AIDS. No one knew how it was transmitted. Task forces set out to determine risk factors, specialized treatment clinics opened, congressional hearings were held, legislation for research was drafted. And people continued to die. By December 1982, 22 cases of opportunistic infections in infants were reported, and fear flooded communities across the globe. So much was unknown about HIV/AIDs that fear set in around the world, and those diagnosed with AIDS were ostracized from communities. Lambert recalls nurses and even doctors refusing to see AIDS patients; families disowned their loved ones. Renee Lambert, a client care advocate at HopeHealth who has been at the core of caring for HIV-positive patients since the 1990s, compares patient treatment in the 1980s to today’s hospice care. “Everybody died back then," she said. "It’s rare that we had people survive and make it to today.” Dr. Rishka Motiani, an infectious diseases and primary care doctor at HopeHealth, explained that three decades ago, patients were suffering from opportunistic infections, such as tuberculosis and cryptococcal meningitis and cancers such as lymphomas and Kaposi’s sarcoma, because they were not being diagnosed until they had AIDS – the third stage of what now is known as HIV infection. Discovered as the cause of AIDS in May 1983, HIV, or human immunodeficiency virus, weakens the body’s defenses against infections and some cancers by targeting the immune system. The virus destroys immune cells, known as CD4 T lymphocytes or CD4 cells. A count of these cells in a milliliter of blood indicates HIV infection. A normal count in a healthy, uninfected individual ranges from 500 to 1,600; a count below 500 indicates one of three stages of HIV infection. The final stage, with counts at less than 200 cells, means the HIV infection has progressed to AIDS. At this point, the virus has so weakened the body that opportunistic infections and cancers can rapidly take hold.

Fungal Meningitis
 
00:42
http://FungalMeningitis.org - Fungal Meningitis - There are three types of meningitis -- viral, bacterial, and fungal. Fungal meningitis is the rarest form of meningitis. It comes from fungus spreading through the blood into the spinal cord. Often the fungus that causes fungal meningitis is Cryptococcus, but that is not the only fungus that can be the culprit. Who Can Get It? - Anyone of any age, race, ethnicity, or gender can get fungal meningitis. That being said, it is most common for people that have a weakened immune system to contract it than for others to do so. AIDS and cancer are often the weakening factors. Some medicines, like prednisone (a steroid) and medicines given after a transplant to ward off organ rejection can also weaken the immune system. So does surgery. Premature babies also have weakened immune systems, especially if they are underweight.

Exserohilum & Fungal Meningitis
 
03:22
Exserohilum is a common mold found in soil and on plants, especially grasses. It thrives in warm and humid climates and can cause root rot in some plants. It is a very rare cause of infection in people, but it has been known to cause several different types of infections, including infection in the skin or the cornea, which are typically due to skin or eye trauma. Exserohilum can also cause more invasive forms of infection in the sinuses, lungs, lining of the heart and bone. These infections are believed to occur more likely in people with weak immune systems. Like other fungal infections, Exserohilum infections are not transmitted from person to person. Exserohilum rostratum has been identified as one of the predominant pathogens in the 2012 multistate outbreak of fungal meningitis and other fungal infections associated with contaminated steroid injections. Twenty-three states received contaminated injectable steroids from three lots of the steroids that were associated with the outbreak and were linked to a compounding center in Massachusetts. Hundreds of cases were reported, including dozens deaths. Fungal meningitis occurs when the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord are infected with a fungus. Fungal meningitis is rare and usually caused by the spread of a fungus through blood to the spinal cord. Signs and symptoms of fungal meningitis may include the following: • Fever • Headache • Stiff neck • Nausea and vomiting • Sensitivity to light • Altered mental status During this outbreak, some patients developed spinal or paraspinal infections at the injection site. These conditions could occur on their own or in addition to meningitis. These are just a few things to know about Exserohilum and its role in a recent outbreak of fungal meningitis, to learn more about this or other indoor air quality, health & safety, and environmental issues, please visit the websites shown in the video.

Fungal Meningitis
 
03:10
Meningitis is an infection of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. Fungal meningitis is caused by a number of different types of fungi, some of which are found outdoors and even in some indoor environments. Fungal meningitis gained national attention in 2012 when a multi-state outbreak occurred that is believed to be the result of contaminated steroid injections. Hundreds of cases resulted along with dozens of fatalities. Fungal meningitis is not transmitted from person to person. It can develop after a fungus spreads through the bloodstream from somewhere else in the body, as a result of the fungus being introduced directly into the central nervous system, or from a body site infection next to the central nervous system. Signs and symptoms of fungal meningitis may include the following: • Fever • Headache • Stiff neck • Nausea and vomiting • Sensitivity to light & • Altered mental status Certain diseases, medications and surgical procedures may weaken one's immune system and increase the risk of getting a fungal infection, which can lead to fungal meningitis. Living in certain areas of the United States may also increase a person's risk for fungal lung infections, which can also spread to the brain. For example, bird and bat droppings may contain Histoplasma or Cryptococcus and soil in the Southwestern United States may contain Coccidioides. Even people living and working in contaminated indoor environments may be exposing themselves to types of fungi, such as Aspergillus fumigatus, that have been associated with fungal meningitis. These are just a few things to know about fungal meningitis, to learn more about microbial pathogens or other health and safety, occupational or indoor air quality issues, please visit the websites shown on the screen.

What are the symptoms of AIDS?
 
04:05
What are the symptoms of AIDS? symptoms of AIDS Signs of AIDS Signs of HIV Symptoms of HIV With the use of antiretroviral therapy, chronic HIV can last several decades. Without treatment, HIV can be expected to progress to AIDS sooner. By that time, the immune system is quite damaged and has a hard time fighting off infection and disease. Symptoms of AIDS can include: recurrent fever chronic swollen lymph glands, especially of the armpits, neck, and groin chronic fatigue night sweats dark splotches under the skin or inside the mouth, nose, or eyelids sores, spots, or lesions of the mouth and tongue, genitals, or anus bumps, lesions, or rashes of the skin recurrent or chronic diarrhea rapid weight loss neurologic problems such as difficulty concentrating, memory loss, and confusion anxiety and depression Because you have a weakened immune system, you’re at increased risk of pneumonia and other opportunistic infections. Other potential complications of AIDS include: candidiasis tuberculosis cytomegalovirus (CMV), a type of herpes virus cryptococcal meningitis toxoplasmosis, and infection caused by a parasite cryptosporidiosis, an infection caused by an intestinal parasite cancer, including Kaposi’s sarcoma (KS) and lymphoma kidney disease Antiviral medications can help control the virus. Treatment for other infections and complications of AIDS must be tailored to your individual needs. HIV test What tests are used to diagnose HIV? Antibody test Between 21 and 84 days after infection, about 97 percent of people will develop detectable HIV antibodies, which can be found in the blood or saliva. There’s no preparation necessary for blood tests or mouth swabs. Some tests provide results in 30 minutes or less and can be performed in a doctor’s office or clinic. There are also home test kits available: OraQuick HIV Test: An oral swab provides results in as little as 20 minutes. Home Access HIV-1 Test System: After pricking your finger, you send a blood sample to a licensed laboratory. You can remain anonymous and call for results the next business day. If you think you’ve recently been exposed to HIV, but tested negative, repeat the test in three months. If you have a positive result, follow up with your doctor to confirm. Antibody/antigen test An antigen is part of the virus that activates your immune system. It takes from 13 to 42 days for antibodies and antigens to be detectable. Nucleic acid test (NAT) This expensive test isn’t used for general screening. It’s for people who have early symptoms of HIV or recently had a high-risk exposure. This test doesn’t look for antibodies, but for the virus itself. It takes from seven to 28 days for HIV to be detectable in the blood. This test is usually accompanied by an antibody test. Is rash a symptom of HIV? About 90 percent of people with HIV experience changes to the skin. Rash is often one of the first symptoms of HIV infection. Generally, an HIV rash appears as a flat red area with small bumps. HIV makes you more susceptible to skin problems because the virus destroys immune system cells that fight infection. Co-infections that can cause rash include: molluscum contagiosum herpes simplex shingles The appearance of the rash, how long it lasts, and how it can be treated depend on the cause. Some medicines used to treat HIV or other infections can cause a rash. It usually appears within a week or two of starting on a new medication. Sometimes the rash will clear up on its own. If it doesn’t, you may need to switch medicines. Rash due to an allergic reaction to medicine can be serious. Other symptoms of an allergic reaction include trouble breathing or swallowing, dizziness, and fever. Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) is a rare allergic reaction to HIV medication. Symptoms include fever and swelling of the face and tongue. Rash, which can involve the skin and mucous membranes, appears and spreads quickly. When 30 percent of the skin is affected it’s called toxic epidermal necrolysis, which is a life-threatening condition. What is HIV? HIV is a virus that enters your body and begins to destroy T cells. You need T cells in order to fight infections. HIV spreads through bodily fluids that include: blood semen vaginal and rectal fluids breast milk The first few weeks after infection is called the acute infection stage. During this time the virus rapidly reproduces. Your immune system responds by producing HIV antibodies. Many people experience temporary flu-like symptoms during this stage. Even without symptoms, HIV is highly contagious during this time. After the first month or so, HIV enters the clinical latency stage. This stage can last from a few years to a few decades. Progression can be slowed with antiretroviral therapy. Some people have symptoms. Many people do not, but it’s still contagious.

Fungal meningitis outbreak: New England pharmacy executives charged with murder for tainted steroids
 
00:54
For story suggestions please contact [email protected] Two senior executives at a Massachusetts pharmacy have been charged along with 12 others in connection with a 2012 fungal meningitis outbreak in the U.S. The primary fungus responsible for the infection was Exserohilum, a mold commonly found in soil and on plants, which was found in an injectable steroid medication produced by New England Compounding Company. A total of 751 people in 20 states developed meningitis or other infections after being administered the tainted steroids. Sixty-four of those people died. New England Compounding Center co-founder Barry Cadden and head pharmacist Glenn Adam Chin were both charged with 25 counts of second-degree murder. Twelve other employees face lesser charges. Fungal meningitis is usually caused by the spread of fungus through the blood to the spinal cord. It causes inflammation of the meninges covering the spinal cord and the brain. The swelling increases pressure on brain tissue and decreases cerebral blood flow, lowering the oxygen supply to the brain and eventually resulting in death.

How Biohacking & Detoxing Saved My Life ft. Josh Macin (The Detox Dudes) || #86
 
02:10:27
Anthony Bourdain. Kate Spade. Robin Williams. The news of a celebrity suicide is always shocking & brings mental health to the forefront of discussion. More than a few of us wonder how someone who seemingly "has it all" can reach such a low point where they decide to end their own life. It's a sad reminder that shows how little we know about mental health issues & the prevalence it has within society. Josh Macin (The Detox Dudes), our guest this week, was at the top of his world: He was a recently minted Brazilian Ji Jitsu world champion and had a stable sales career with a healthy family life. He was, on the surface, completely healthy. Over a two week period, he mentally broke down and began to lose his sanity: Depression ensued, panic attacks became a regular occurrence, & suicidal thoughts were not uncommon. When his doctors and traditional pharmaceuticals couldn’t help him, Josh went on a three- year journey to figure out what he could do to cure himself and essentially save his own life. In this discussion, you'll discover: - Behind Josh's Ji-Jitsu sporting career: How he approached fights, using marijuana to improve performance, & more - Josh's story for survival: How his mental health issues manifested, the various interventions he experimented with (fasting, nutrition, psychedelics, etc), & what ultimately solved his issues and saved his life - Behind ayahuasca ceremonies: The traditions, experience of the plant, and what it's like to go through the process of becoming a shaman - Do most of us have parasites?

I got a Brain Infection from My Neurosurgeon Dr. Melvin Field at Florida Hospital Orlando
 
01:42
MY NAME IS JOHN SCOTT CONOVER, I MADE THIS VIDEO TO EDUCATE THE PUBLIC OF WHAT YOU MAY BE SUBJECTED TO AS I WAS, TO AN UNSTERILE OPERATING ROOM AT FLORIDA HOSPITAL OF ORLANDO !! I have undergone 2 brain operations at Florida Hospital of Orlando between 2012 and 2017. In June 2012, Neurosurgeon Dr. Melvin Fields performed a botched brain operation on me. Approx. 4 months after, I returned to Florida Hospital of Orlando with a severe infection in my head. The incision site had broken down from the infection and pus, blood, and CSF fluid was oozing out of the incision. This has been an ongoing reoccurring issue for the last five years continuously. I have sought help many times at Florida Hospital of Orlando when the pus and CSF are oozing from the incision site. Each time I was admitted and administered antibiotics from the ICU and then sent home within 3-5 days. Approximately 7 months ago, I was readmitted with a severe infection at the incision site. I was admitted immediately. I was prepped for an operation the following morning. The goal was to eradicate the germ that was inside my head by removing the graft on my skull and the mesh. Hopefully. Approx 3 months after this botched life and death operation, I had returned to the ER with a severe infection at the incision site Again.. With my insistence, prior to administering antibiotics, the ER doctor at Florida Hospital of Orlando sent the specimen for culture to the lab. A day and a half later, the PA came into my room in the ICU and asked me how I was doing. I asked her what kind of infection did I have. She stated Lets see. As she looked at the computer she noticed that Dr. Fields had not ordered the specimen to be cultured as usual. So she herself ordered the labwork to be done. The following day I was released from the ICU and sent home with 28 tablets of Keflex in 750 mg. Approximately, three to five days later, my daughter went down to Florida Hospital of Orlando, and got all the test results from the records department. Upon receiving these records we were shocked to find out that I had tested positive for rare gram cocci, and I had no graft on the rear of my skull or a mesh protecting it. This infection was less than 1 millimeter from my brain, and it could have killed me instantly. To this day, I have never received a call from Florida Hospital of Orlando or the so-called neurosurgeons, that I was being treated by, to find out how I was feeling and to inform me that I had tested positive for rare gram cocci. I have sent eight emails over a period of 3 months, and two hand delivered letters to the administration, and to the C.E.O. of Florida Hospital of Orlando, and to the board members begging and pleading for someone from this administration to supersede in this matter and I have never been contacted except from their Risk Management Officer. This is extremely sad that this kind of medical treatment is being allowed in 2017. I released this video to educate the people of what kind of unsterile, unsanitary conditions that you may be subjected to while getting an operation at Florida Hospital of Orlando, while you are lying unconscious in their operating room at the hands of a sloppy, dirty Neurosurgeon that doesn't scrub up and assumes that the rules and regulations of the board of medicine doesn't apply to him. Every day I suffer from severe, debilitating headaches, dizziness, and nausea along with the occasional CSF and pus oozing from my right side of my head and my ear, and my face becoming swollen from the collection of CSF, while Florida Hospital of Orlando and Neurosurgeon Dr. Melvin Field refuse to acknowledge it. They blackballed me and have left me Abandoned with an infection inside my head that I will live with the rest of my life. - SCOTT PLEASE EDUCATE YOURSELF ON THIS CATASTROPHIC ISSUE!!

Former police officer diagnosed with fungal meningitis

Former officer diagnosed with fungal meningitis Originally printed at http://www.abc57.com/home/top-stories/Former-officer-diagnosed-with-fungal-meningitis-174844701.html By Judi Lykowski [email protected] October 18, 2012 ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. -- A total of 34 people in Indiana have been diagnosed with fungal meningitis. One of the victims is a former St. Joseph County Police Officer. "I've been through a lot of stuff my whole entire life," said Jack "Pappy" Pavlekovich. "I was never afraid of anything this is the first time I have to say I am really afraid right now." Pavlekovich, better known as Pappy, is a retired St. Joseph County Police Officer. He started his law enforcement career in 1975 with the Osceola Police Department. In 1977 he accepted a road patrol position until a few years later when he became a detective. Right now he's in a fight for his life. It started last month after he got two steroid shots at the OSMC Clinic in Elkhart. The shots were supposed to help relieve chronic back pain. He says the first shot was injected on Sept. 10, the second on Sept. 24. "I had a total of four back surgeries." Those injections were contaminated and now he's battling fungal meningitis. "At that point and time I was really, really concerned I thought we were going to lose him," said Tammy Pavlekovich, Pappy's wife. His wife says he had congestive heart failure when he was first admitted to Memorial on Oct. 5. Since then she's been doing a lot of research. "And there's a good possibility that in the end you die from it and that just terrifies me," she said. The couple has two young daughters. "I brought my girls up and my girls had a very hard time seeing their dad with all the IVs and tubes," said Tammy. "My girls cry every night that their dad is not home." She said his health has improved. "He's now sitting up he's talking to us which before he could not do," said Tammy. Pappy said he will give everything to this fight. "For Ashley, Jamie and Tammy," he said. According to the CDC website which was updated Thursday, 20 people have died throughout the country from the multi-state fungal meningitis outbreak and 257 people are listed as having the infection.
