Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 31, 2014

Kidneys, skin and guts? opened Bryan W. Brickner. No, not a strange food item just some cannabinoid science on homeostasis.

Brickner, part of Publius and The Cannabis Papers: A citizens guide to cannabinoids (2011), utilizes new 2014 research from the National Institutes of Health (PubMed) and notes several findings, to include: a functionally active cannabinoid system (CS) present within the kidney; cannabinoid modulation of our keratin gene and skin health; and peripheral nerve targets in the gut for cannabinoid receptors.

Homeostatic Cannabinoid Science ~ Publius May 2014 Roundup on the Bryan William Brickner Blog, highlights seven PubMed articles regarding homeostatic modulation and cannabinoids. The roundup includes new research on the urinary, neuroendocrine, digestive, serotonin and central nervous systems and their modulation by cannabinoids.

Kidneys are part of our urinary system, Brickner explained, and the science this month shows that activating our CB2 receptors has a beneficial effect in diabetic nephropathy (kidney disease).

With skin, the news is keratin, continued Brickner; here, via the neuroendocrine system, CB1 receptors are reported to profoundly modulate keratin and the proteins for healthy skin.”

With the gut the news is about controlling gastrointestinal motility through both receptors ~ CB1 and CB2.

Homeostatic cannabinoid receptors, Brickner closed, natures healthcare modulators.

Brickner has a 1997 political science doctorate from Purdue University and is the author of several political theory books, to include The Promise Keepers: Politics and Promises (1999) and The Book of the Is: A book on bridges (2013). The Bryan William Brickner Blog is an ongoing resource for the political science of constitutions and the biological science of cannabinoids.

The Cannabis Papers is available at online retailers and for free by download.

CU Science Update 23 - Health Care Delivery

Despite remarkable technological advances in medicine, there is a great need to devise new models for delivering healthcare. The challenge is to get doctors and patients to come together, to sift through all the complex information and come up with an understanding of the medical condition. This understanding will help the patient know what contributes to a disease such as lifestyle, genetics and environment, and will make it possible for them to research their condition and be better prepared to confront it. David Rosenman, a physician of internal medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, is our special guest. He discusses ways to innovate and collaborate not just with those working within the healthcare profession, but also outside to come up with new ideas. CU Science Update’s correspondent Priscilla Carlson met with Dr. Rosenman where he tells us more about healthcare delivery, understanding the science that improves outcomes, leading to greater patient satisfaction.. Hosted by Ina Damm Muri. Produced by the University of Colorado at Boulder Journalism and Mass Communication students.

Medicine of the Person: Faith, Science and Values in Health Care Provision

International and multi-faith in scope, this important text engages with the need to integrate the scientific basis of healthcare more fully with spiritual, religious and ethical values. Based on the principle of ‘medicine of the person’, an attitude that embeds personal relationships and ethics in medical practice, the text considers the ideas of Paul Tournier, an influential figure whose thinking has had a substantial impact on the spiritual and psychosocial aspects of routine patient care, particularly in national health services. Bridging the gap between the basic sciences and faith traditions, the contributors cover notions of personhood in different faiths, and its consideration in spirituality and mental health issues, general practice issues, public health, home care for the elderly and neuroscience. This volume offers a broad spectrum of approaches to the needs of patients that is central to the students of the health disciplines and managers in these fields.
