Thank you for consulting our scientific reference section. Below is just a small sample of the supportive studies regarding your particular area of interest. Studies may be directly or indirectly related to this area of health care. We pride ourselves upon "thinking outside of the box" such that we base much of our wellness approaches upon a scientific evidence base.  It is important for you to realize that the references below are not provided to necessarily support the particular approach described within this section of our website.  If you would like further evidence or support or simply have questions please feel free to email us directly at: or call us at 94-242-8844 (Ext. 1). - This study demonstrates that improvement in arterial stiffness identifies patients who have a more favorable prognosis. - Promising study results show that measurement of arterial stiffness could become an important part of the routine assessment of patients in daily practice. - This new concept should lead physicians to evaluate arterial stiffness for the prognosis and treatment of cardiovascular patients. - Cardiovascular events from arterial stiffness - Sleep apnea increases cardiovascular problems - Emphesema, cardiovascular events and artery stiffness (calcification). - These results suggest long-term ingestion of SSE in humans could help to improve arterial stiffness. - The present study suggests that elevation of ApoB or non-HDL cholesterol is associated with increased arterial stiffness in young adults. - These results can imply the deleterious effect of acute hyperglycemic excursion on arterial stiffness in subjects with glucose intolerance. - Measurement of arterial stiffness is a sensitive technique that can detect vascular damage in children with cardiovascular risk factors earlier than intima-media thickness measurement. - Patients who have prominently increased arterial stiffness can be recommended to undergo colonoscopic examinations and at the same time we also recommend counseling about the risk for atherosclerosis in those who have colorectal adenomas. - CRP could be a useful marker of arterial stiffness in treated hypertension patients and a possible target for arterial inflammation in hypertension. - Renal artery stiffness is associated with arterial resistance (stiffness). - In young obese women with PCOS, (central) obesity, rather than PCOS itself, is associated with increased arterial stiffness. - Obesity is associated with increased arterial stiffness.
