Conclusions: Up to June 2007 Body Dynamix I treated 18 eyes with this technique and although more study has to be done on this type of surgery, the Radiosurgically assisted transplantation of labial salivary glands promises to be an excellent alternative for cases of very dry eyes when conventional treatments fail. Patients' recovery is very fast with only minimal discomfort in the recovery time. However I would like to stress that this treatment is not the first choice therapy for all cases of dry eyes but has to be considered as a possible solution for severe cases.

There was a time adding Omega 3 flax seed oil was recommended to improve our health. Today, however, with scores of research linking the rise in inflammation from an over-abundance of Omega 3 seed oil, we need to begin reducing our intake of Omega 3 seed oil and replacing it with Omega 3 fish oil. The American Heart Association recommends one gram a day of Omega 3 from fatty fish to keep hearts healthy and up to three grams a day for damaged hearts.

Dr. Joseph Hibbeln, National Institutes of Health, one of the world's leading authorities on Omega 3 fatty fish oil, states "There's two families of polyunsaturated fatty acids, the Omega-3 fatty acid which you find primarily from fish oils, and the Omega-6 fatty acids which now in the US diet come from seed oils, and this is an absolutely critical distinction. Not all polyunsaturates are the same. Omega-6 fatty acids from seed oils - eventually the body converts them into a compound called arachidonic acid which is good in low amounts but in high amounts, it makes a lot of inflammatory compounds. The origin of arachidonic acid is from what you eat.

It's from seed oils. If you take the seed oils away and swap them out, your body will not be full of so much arachidonic acid and will not have such a pro-inflammatory disposition. Swapping the Omega-6 fatty acids and replacing them with Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oils, your body will have a uniquely different predisposition towards inflammation and for aggravation."
