Waiting for missing sex offender who just turned himself in to @MartinFLSheriff . @WPTV pic.twitter.com/tAvWo5lU85 Jon Shainman (@JonShainman) November 10, 2015 EARLIER: According to the attorney representing sex offender John Michael Janaskas, he will be turning himself into Martin County Sheriffs deputies Tuesday afternoon. Attorney Aaron Cohen says his client was in a treatment facility in Miramar, Florida while the manhunt for Janaskas was taking place in Martin County. This has all been blown out of proportion. When he was thrown out of the Martin County treatment facility, he went to finish his detox in Miramar, Cohen said. Martin County detectives and road deputies have been on high alert for the past day, keeping an eye out for Janaskas. The 29-year-old is a known drug user and convicted child rapist, according to Martin County detectives. Janaskas is a registered sex offender in Pennsylvania. Martin County Sheriff William Snyder says he was ordered by a court to attend a treatment facility in Jensen Beach. That facility, which cannot be identified by detectives because of HIPPA laws, contacted the sheriff’s office last week to notify deputies that they had a sex offender in their care. Employees did not make any effort however, to make sure he was registered, according to detectives. Instead, the sheriff’s office says employees dropped him off at the Walmart in Stuart on Saturday and left. The sheriff suspects they did this because they did not want to have a sex offender in their care, potentially harming the facility’s reputation. Copyright 2015 Scripps Media, Inc.

But the state Department of Children and Families says it has no way to document what to many seems obvious: that the opioid crisis that killed 1,256 Massachusetts residents last year is one of the factors driving an increase in the states child protection caseload, which has soared to record levels. The department says its outmoded computer system is simply not capable of tracking such basic information, even though child welfare professionals warn that drug abuse is one of the leading indicators that children are at risk of harm. I cant pull that data currently, said Marylou Sudders, the state secretary of health and human services, who added that DCF will upgrade its computer system to allow it to track all drug-related cases. Linda Carlisle, who served until last week as acting head of the Office of the Child Advocate, said it is crucial that DCF know which of the 47,000 children it monitors have parents addicted to opioids. Thats something that really has to be addressed, she said. Theres no way you can get a sense of the numbers or the scope of the problem without that. Yet there is growing evidence that the problem is increasing. Statewide, the number of children removed from their homes by DCF has jumped 28 percent over the last three years, from 2,655 to 3,383, according to court records. We have seen a very significant increase in the number of child abuse and neglect cases, and it is clear that parental opioid addiction is a contributing factor, said Carol A. Erskine, the first justice of the Worcester Juvenile Court. And there doesnt appear to be any indication that those numbers are going to diminish anytime soon. At UMass Memorial Childrens Medical Center in Worcester, 119 children were admitted after serious physical abuse this year, up from 59 in 2012, while the number of children treated for less serious injuries because of abuse has grown to 336, from 199 in 2012. A significant number of those cases involved children whose parents were addicted to opioids, said Dr. Heather C. Forkey, chief of the hospitals child protection program. When youre living with a caregiver who is impaired, they are not able to meet your needs as a child, she said. Many kids are at significant risk, and while wed like to leave them at home, DCF and we as a society are having trouble doing that safely. DCF also received reports of 3,215 infants who were born exposed to drugs between March 2014 and July 2015, according to the department, which started tracking those cases last year.

High in fiber, a nutrient that is already widely known to promote healthy digestion, apples are also rich in pectin, a carbohydrate compound that acts as a thickening agent inside the gut. When taken in therapeutic doses, pectin can help root out built-up toxins in the colon and strengthen the intestinal lining. Dr. Ed Group’s “6-Day Advanced Oxygen Colon Cleanse,” for instance, involves taking several tablespoons of ACV as part of the cleansing protocol ( http://www.globalhealingcenter.com ). And Dr. James Balch, M.D., in his book Prescription for Natural Healing explains how pectin, which is also found in bananas and in the rinds of citrus fruits, helps remove heavy metals and other toxins from the body ( http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3062.Prescription_for_Natural_Cures ). 2) Avocados. For everyday colon cleansing, avocados are another great option for detoxification and digestion. Like apples, avocados are rich in fiber, and include both soluble and insoluble varieties at a ratio of about one to three, which is quite unique. And as it turns out, insoluble fiber is the type that promotes healthy bowel movements and cleanses the colon , effectively reducing one’s overall risk of developing colon cancer. Also important is the avocado’s soluble fiber content, which is important for absorbing water and binding with other digested substances to help them easily move through the digestive tract. This mechanistic “gelling” effect also helps maintain bowel regularity in its own unique way, and prevents the toxic buildups that can lead to irregularity and constipation. 3) Flax and chia seeds . Unique in their nutritional profiles, both flax and chia seeds possess fats and fiber that help promote healthy digestion and a clean colon. Both are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, for instance, which have been shown to stabilize cell walls and reduce inflammation. Flax and chia also contain their own unique blends of soluble fiber, which bind with food to optimize the digestive process. “You want things in your diet that are multi-functional in that they have micronutrients in them like vitamins and minerals, and also help with digestion and fiber,” says Sheah L. Rarback, M.S., director of nutrition at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine in Florida. “Omega-3s are an added benefit. Omega-3s are anti-inflammatory. Inflammation is probably the cause of most of our problems and chronic conditions.” 4) Chlorophyll-rich greens. Green fruits and vegetables that are rich in chlorophyll tend to promote healthy digestion and daily colon cleansing as well. Spinach, green olives, asparagus, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, celery, collard greens, sea vegetables, leeks, peas, and Swiss chard are all high in chlorophyll, which means they can help cleanse your digestive tract and detoxify your liver. Supplementing with liquid chlorophyll is another option for boosting intake of this important nutrient for maximum colon health.

For now, here is some information that might help you decide whether colon cleansing is for you. Recommended Related to Mind, Body, Spirit Make a Midlife Crisis Work for You By Jennifer Warner Rather than letting fear and anxiety restrict your life choices and leave you in a rut, experts say you can look at a midlife crisis as an opportunity for personal growth. Linda Sapadin, author of Master Your Fears: How to Triumph over Your Worries and Get on with Your Life, recommends these steps for using a midlife crisis to your advantage: Do one gutsy thing. Do something despite feeling uncomfortable or fearful about it. “That’s one way to move outside of your comfort… Read the Make a Midlife Crisis Work for You article > > What is natural colon cleansing? There are two main colon-cleansing methods. One involves buying products; the other involves seeing a practitioner to have a colon irrigation. Colon cleansing with powdered or liquid supplements . You take some supplements used for colon cleansing by mouth . Others you take through the rectum. Either way, the idea is to help the colon to expel its contents.

Dr. Mishori recommended that health care practitioners should ask patients with otherwise unexplained nausea, vomiting and diarrhea if they perform colon cleansing. Her report details several cases of patients who presented to the emergency department with medical problems related to recent colon cleansing. The authors also cautioned that the FDA has not approved the devices used in the procedure for colon hydrotherapythey have only been approved for medical proceduresand that inadequately disinfected or sterilized irrigation machines have been linked to bacterial contamination. In fact, the FDA has issued warning letters to manufacturers over the past decade for unapproved uses of the devices used for the procedure. In the article, the investigators also questioned the training of many colon hydrotherapists. Colon cleansing practitioners are not licensed by a scientifically based organization. Instead, they undergo a training process structured by an organization that issues its own certification and licensing requirements. The International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy (I-ACT) and the National Board for Colon HydroTherapy require practitioners to have a high school diploma or equivalent degree plus three semesters of postsecondary education and to be certified in cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Practitioners also take various seminars and continuing education courses. Detox Defended Practitioners of colon hydrotherapy criticize Dr. Mishoris findings, saying it throws together herbal laxatives, pharmaceutical laxatives and colon hydrotherapy without spelling out the risks and benefits of each. By lumping all these things into something called colon cleansing, this report does a disservice to all of these options which many medical doctors use for their patients, said A. R. Hoenninger, ND, PhD, executive director of I-ACT, an organization that raises awareness of colon hydrotherapy and sets policy recommendations for members. Dr. Hoenninger noted, There is a lot to be gained by hydrotherapy done appropriately. However, there is not anything to be gained when either the practitioners of colon therapy start making unfounded claims or physicians unfamiliar with the procedure start making unfounded allegations. And its not I-ACTs role to organize and support scientific research, he added. Although Dr. Hoenninger acknowledged a lack of scientific evidence supporting colon hydrotherapy, he said the reports of adverse events are few considering the popularity of the procedure. In the last 10 years, were assuming we could have well over 10 million colon hydrotherapy sessions (based on sales of rectal nozzles/speculae) but with only a limited number of alleged issues or problems. Dr. Hoenninger also challenged the authors warning about lack of FDA approval, saying that colon cleansing is a medical procedure and thus meets agency requirements. I-ACTs policy statement online states: I-ACT recommends the use of currently registered FDA equipment and disposable rectal nozzles/speculae. Should the therapist use reusable speculae, these speculums should, at a minimum be autoclaved for sanitation and cleanliness. Additionally, I-ACT recommends that each therapist not using equipment currently registered with the FDA, consider upgrading their equipment to FDA registered equipment in the very near future. Bogus Claims? Roland Shepard, MD, a gastroenterologist in private practice in Tampa, Fla., agreed that colon hydrotherapy is a useful tool for bowel preparation as long as it is performed by a trained therapist. Dr. Shepard has been working with colon hydrotherapist Suzanne Gray for three years. Weve had zero problems. Certainly there is potential for problems, which is why appropriate contraindications must be heeded, and it needs to be done by a trained colon therapist. He added, however, that he is concerned about misuse and misadvertising about colon hydrotherapy. I dont believe in the whole detox theory, he said.

Show Caption Previous Next CINCINNATI – Procter & Gamble Co. shareholders will be greeted by protestors Tuesday morning, as Womens Voices for the Earth pushes for changes to the Always brand of feminine hygiene products. The group commissioned laboratory tests in 2014 that showed Always products emit carcinogens and reproductive and developmental toxins, according to a press release. A full list of the chemicals is available on WVEs web site, but they can’t be found on Always packaging. Its been nearly two years since we first brought these test results to the attention of Procter and Gamble and nothing has changed. Instead, P&G has ignored the concerns of their consumers, said Sarada Tangirala, WVEs National Campaigns Manager. So were bringing these concerns directly to P&Gs shareholders. The group is planning a four-hour Detox the Box rally at P&G headquarters, where it will deliver 35,000 petition signatures and ask P&G to list all ingredients on Always packaging and remove toxic chemicals. P&G spokesman Damon Jones said the materials in P&Gs feminine care products are commonly used throughout the industry and have been tested to ensure safety. We share our feminine care product information with independent experts including medical consultants, university scientists, and the FDA so that women can use our feminine hygiene products with confidence, Jones said. In addition, our products are medical devices in the US and are required to meet the strict safety expectations of the FDA. For those who would like to know more, we provide information on the materials in these products and their safety on our brands websites. P&Gs ingredient disclosures on Always pads include polyolefins, petroleum and zinc oxide, absorbent wood cellulose and rayon. They do not include chlorines, toxic dyes or toxic amounts of dioxin, according to P&Gs web site. Copyright 2015 Scripps Media, Inc. All rights reserved.

Here are 5 tips for preparing for a rehabilitation program that will help ensure your success. Do your research on the facility (Source: Harbor Village Detox and Treatment Center) The decision to enroll in a rehab facility is major. It probably came after months of consideration or maybe after a close-call with death. Regardless of the catalyst that leads you here, youve made the right decision. Now comes the time to decide what rehab center you should entrust with your recovery and possibly your life. When researching facilities, the first and most important thing to look for is the accreditation and licensing rehab centershave. If this information is not readily available, consider it is a red flag for a possibly shady establishment. Make sure you read any reviews available not only on their website but any mentions in the news or industry forums. Know the reputation of the establishment before you even make contact with a recruiter. Research the methods used at the facility Knowing what youre in for before you begin treatment can help you achieve your sobriety goals. What kind of medication does the rehab center offer to help ease the symptoms of withdrawal? What are your therapy options? Is the facility strictly inpatient or do they have an outpatient program? What kind of accommodations do they afford their clients? Do they offer additional assistance following completion of your program? These are all things to consider when choosing a rehabilitation facility.

For instance, he said, technology such as brain imaging, allows researchers to see what circuits are involved when it comes to eating disorders. He added that is the core of research taking place at UCSD. He took part in a study, published earlier this year, that showed those with anorexia have different reactions to food in the brain that may explain why sufferers are able to essentially starve themselves. The study said hunger increases the intensity of food rewards in the brain. Yet those with anorexia nervosa, despite their state of starvation, are able to ignore such food-related rewards. In the study, Dr. Kaye said healthy people who went without food showed more activity in the reward areas of the brain, while that same activity was not seen in the brains of those with anorexia when they went without food. He said this can help researchers understand how those suffering from the disorder can eat so few calories, sometimes for years. While Dr. Kaye said the factors that lead people to develop eating disorders are somewhat controversial, he said certain temperament traits in childhood may play a role. He said children who are perfectionists, very achievement-oriented, anxious and are risk-avoidant may be more likely to develop a disorder. Were realizing how (these traits may be) related to reward centers, he said. Children are neurologically different than adults. When these first vulnerabilities show up, these traits can develop into an illness. In addition, he said, research is beginning to show the brains of those with anorexia and bulimia seem to be very sensitive to negative feedback and criticism, stress, errors or abuse. He said that in studies in which participants play a game in which they win or lose money, most people would rather win vs. lose something, and the brain responds to a win.
