Strange Cases in Medicine – Moebius Syndrome

This week’s strange case in medicine is Moebius Syndrome. Moebius Syndrome is a very rare condition that is most commonly associated with facial paralysis. Those that suffer from Moebius Syndrome are unable to smile, frown, blink, move their eyes side to side, and have a hard time swallowing. Additionally, some also experience physical problems in other body parts.

I can’t even begin to imagine how difficult it must be to be unable to produce any sort of facial expression. Those with Moebius Syndrome can’t express joy, or sadness. They are unable to share any sort of emotion through their facial expressions.


Furthermore, this sort of condition must really test the parents of a child born with Moebius Syndrome. Because of the effects of the condition, caring for a person, especially a small child, with this type of condition can be extremely challenging. I’m sure the toll on some parents gets so hard they develop depression.

Unfortunately the exact cause of Moebius Syndrome is unknown. However, many symptoms of the condition are known, and some people with the condition have been able to have surgery or receive therapy to improve functions originally damaged by the condition. For example, in certain cases, there has been surgery to transfer nerves and muscles to the corners of the mouth to allow the person to have the ability to smile.

That is all until next week. Look out for the next strange case in medicine.

5 Simple and Natural Solutions to Depression

It is predicted that by next year depression will be the second largest illness after heart disease. Depression affects people of all ages. It can be as trivial as being gloomy when the weather is bad or as traumatic as suicide thoughts, attempts, or completions. Here are 5 natural ways to alleviate the minor cases of depression.

1. Get a Pet – Anything you can pet can help you deal with depression. The simple thing of stroking an animal can help compose you. If you are allergic to animals there are breeds of dogs which do not provoke any allergic effects.

2. Exercise – As unappealing as it sounds, exercise can be a great natural solution to depression. With exercise your heart rate is increased and endorphins, which create positive feelings, are released in your brain. Exercise also takes your mind off negative thoughts by preoccupying your mind and body.

3. Surround yourself with happy people – Have you ever heard the saying “You are who you hang out with”? Depression is contagious. If a person suffering from depression spends time with negative people, their condition may worsen; therefore surround yourself with positive people.

4. Set a goal for yourself – To get your life to move forward in a positive direction, set a goal to achieve. Take the time to write down the goal. This will be a good, constant reminder for you, and will allow you to see how far you have progressed from the beginning. Even if you do not reach your ultimate goal, you will be proud of how far you have developed.

5. Eat healthy – Fish and other sea foods are a good for depression as omega 3 and fatty acids have been said to reduce the symptoms of depression substantially. Try to keep a healthy food balance and avoid skipping meals.

If your symptoms of depression persist, there are widely used medications available for everyone.
