HOUSTON (PRWEB) January 24, 2020
Each year Therapy and Beyond, a leading ABA provider across Texas, Oklahoma and Colorado, partners with local organizations to host Mom’s Mingles that are designed for 100+ moms of children with autism. This event allows moms to mingle with others in their community on the same journey, and ultimately, enjoy a night of carefree fun. The highly anticipated 3rd annual North Houston Mom’s Mingle will be held March 23rd, 2020 in North Houston. Registration fills fast and will be open on Friday, February 21st, 2020.
About the Mom’s MinglesAccording to the CDC, about 1 in 59 children has been identified with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Because parents play a pivotal role in a child’s treatment, they can often find themselves feeling isolated and lost. The Mom’s Mingles aim to share resources, connect mothers with their local communities, and give moms a night to let their hair down. This year, Therapy and Beyond has partnered with Autism Moms Are Beautiful for moms to indulge in free food, drinks, raffle prizes, Mardi Gras themed games and most importantly, the chance to create new and long lasting friends and support.
Details about the North Houston Mom’s Mingle and other free upcoming events are available on Therapy and Beyond’s event page.
“Autism moms are beautiful and they rock! Mingling with other moms in a safe and motivating environment leaves a lasting impression on our Autism moms and allows them to continue being the best mothers that they can be. It is a great feeling when we can get together to be free, glammed up, as well as win prizes, dance the night away and network. It leaves us feeling excited and motivated!” – Autism Moms Are Beautiful
In 2013, founder of Therapy and Beyond, Dr. Crone wanted to create a community giveback that didn’t focus on a workshop or learning a new skill, but would simply give moms the opportunity to bond and have an amazing night out. In turn, the Mom’s Mingle event was born in Dallas, Texas and since has been so successful that Therapy and Beyond began to establish annual Mom’s Mingles in other cities such as Denver, Oklahoma City, and Houston.

A New Therapy for Spinal Cord Injury

Press Release – updated: Jan 17, 2020 11:24 EST

WASHINGTON, January 17, 2020 (Newswire.com) – An article published in Experimental Biology and Medicine (Volume 244, Issue 18, December 2019 (https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/pdf/10.1177/1535370219888620) describes a new therapeutic strategy for treating spinal cord injury. The study, led by Drs. Hu and Lu, First Affiliated Hospital of Bengbu Medical College in Bengbu (China), reports that the small molecule P7C3 promotes recovery in an animal model of spinal cord injury.  
Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a devastating neurological disorder resulting in impaired neurological function. Currently, there are no effective treatment options for patients with SCI. However, therapeutic strategies that promote the survival of neurons and oligodendrocytes may prevent long-term neurological dysfunction. P7C3 is an orally bioavailable small molecule that crosses the blood-brain barrier and promotes neuronal survival in animal models. Pre-clinical studies have confirmed P7C3’s protective effects in Parkinson’s disease, traumatic brain injury, peripheral nerve injury, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, age-associated cognitive decline, and neurodegeneration-associated depression. Nonetheless, P7C3 has not been evaluated as a treatment option for SCI. 
In the current study, Dr. Hu and colleagues assessed the effects of P7C3 in an animal model of SCI.  Animals treated with P7C3 exhibited improved neuron and oligodendrocyte survival, locomotor function, tissue repair, and myelination when compared to untreated animals. Collectively, these results demonstrate that P7C3 promotes neuronal survival and function recovery in SCI. Dr. Hu said, “the discovery of neuroprotective effects of P7C3 against rat SCI suggests that P7C3 treatment could be a promising strategy for SCI.”
Dr. Steven R. Goodman, Editor-in-Chief of Experimental Biology & Medicine, said “Hu and colleagues demonstrate that P7C3 improves the neurologic outcome in rats with spinal cord injury (SCI). P7C3, a small molecule aminopropyl carbazole, deserves future study as a potential therapeutic impacting long-term outcome in SCI.”

SVHI PRP Therapy Announces New Website Focused on PRP for Hair Loss in the San Francisco Bay Area

PRP for Hair Loss Bay Area

PRP therapy for hair loss is an innovative option for many Bay Area patients.

FOSTER CITY, Calif. (PRWEB) January 17, 2020
SHVI PRP Therapy, the leader in innovative hair loss treatments based on PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) at https://svhi-prp.com/, is proud to announce a new website. The new website is a “microsite,” focused specifically at the use of PRP to mitigate hair loss. Many Bay Area consumers are open to cutting edge technologies, and PRP is one option in their hair loss journey.
“PRP therapy for hair loss is an innovative option for many Bay Area patients,” explained Miguel Canales, surgeon and founder of SVHI PRP therapy. “Even more important, a patient who seeks out a consultation with me on hair loss will be able to review the entire range of options from PRP therapy to hair loss to hair transplantation. I will work with each patient to create the best treatment program for their hair loss needs.”
Persons who would like to learn more about the company can visit the new website. In particular, they can focus on the page specific to PRP therapy can visit https://svhi-prp.com/prp-therapy/. Another option is to read the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) document at https://svhi-prp.com/faq/. That document explains as follows. Hair thinning in women, which affects nearly 40 million American women, is mainly due to heredity and can start any time after puberty. However, we also know that female pattern hair loss can be strongly influenced by age, nutrition, stress, surgery, medications, illness, social/lifestyle factors, hair care and more. As hair follicles weaken and stop producing hair, hair loss occurs.Remarkably, PRP for hair loss can impact the hair itself, often resulting in hair rejuvenation.
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma for hair loss is an in-office, non-surgical, treatment derived from the patient’s own blood that can be performed in about an hour. After the area of concern is identified, evaluated and measured, standardized medical photos are taken in the photo suite. Special gentle and sterile techniques and equipment are used to separate and concentrate the platelets and plasma from a small sample of peripheral blood. PRP contains growth factors and cytokines that have been shown to be responsible for stimulating and enhancing hair follicle function. The scalp is prepared with antiseptic solution and anesthetic (a “ring block,” not simply local anesthetic gel) is used to completely numb the scalp. Small injections of the PRP deliver the powerful platelet-derived growth factors into the skin at the level of the weak follicles. Electronic, mechanical microneedling is performed.
