Heart Attacks on the Rise in Young People

When Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin suffered cardiac arrest during a live game earlier this year, many spectators commented that it seemed bizarre for a 24-year-old to experience a near-fatal heart-related incident.

Yet even before that infamous game against the Cincinnati Bengals, experts had been raising alarms about the COVID-19 pandemic, which is demonstrably linked to heart disease. More recently a national survey by The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center revealed that young people remain largely unconcerned about their risk of heart disease even though experts continue to warn about the disturbing trends.

“We are in a society now that people are less physically active. There is more use of screen time in general and less activity for a lot of people for their job. They sit all day.”

As it turns out, the growing epidemic of youth heart disease precedes the Hamlin incident, and may ultimately have deadly consequences. In the words of Dr. Ron Blankstein — a preventive cardiologist and professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School — “It’s never too early to start thinking about prevention of heart disease,” in no small part because of the growing obesity epidemic, and additionally because “cardiovascular disease among young people has been increasing since before COVID-19.”

“The main reasons [for the spike in youth heart disease] have been increases in obesity and diabetes,” Blankstein told Salon. He added that young people dealing with mental health issues are also turning increasingly to substances like marijuana, alcohol, cocaine and nicotine, all of which are also linked to heart disease. Beyond what they put into their bodies, however, modern American young people are also simply not moving enough to stay fit.

“We are in a society now that people are less physically active,” Blankstein explained. “There is more use of screen time in general and less activity for a lot of people for their job. They sit all day.”

Americans have been trending toward increasingly sedentary lifestyles for decades, as more and more jobs do not require sustained physical labor, and the foods fueling people sap rather than restore their energy. Indeed, the term “food desert” exists today because there are so many places — including in the United States — where the food options available to the average consumer are nutritionally inadequate and bad for your heart.

“When we talk about diet choices and diet availability, we’re in a society where there is a large consumption of processed foods that are readily available, fast food that at times is cheaper and more readily available and more accessible than healthier options like fruits and vegetables and whole grains and food that is not processed,” Blankstein pointed out. Compounding the damage from regularly consuming heart-unhealthy foods, low-income Americans also lack access to the type of regular health care that could help them stay on top of potential heart problems.

“Although observed rates of myocarditis were higher than expected, the benefits of vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 in reducing the severity of COVID-19, hospital admission and deaths far outweigh the risk of developing myocarditis.”

“Addressing heart disease risk factors at a young age is important because when conditions are treated at an earlier age, you can slow the progression or onset of developing heart disease,” explained Dr. Laxmi Mehta, director of Preventative Cardiology and Women’s Cardiovascular Health at The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center, in a statement after Ohio State University released a study on youth cardiac disease. Yet because so many young people dismiss heart disease as a problem exclusive to the middle-aged and elderly, detectable and thus avoidable diseases are often missed.

For those who do not have access to a robust personal health care plan, there are other ways to protect yourself. The American Heart Association (AHA) has a list of the so-called “Essential Eight” — that is, eight things that any person should do to maintain good heart health regardless of their age. In addition to eating well, avoiding nicotine and exercising more, the AHA urges people to watch their weight, maintain their cholesterol, manage their blood sugar, manage their blood pressure and get seven to nine hours of sleep.

Finally, it is especially important for young people to receive COVID-19 vaccinations. Patients infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus (which causes COVID-19) often have damaged cardiac muscle as a result. Although anti-vaccine advocates have argued that COVID-19 vaccines are heart-dangerous, the same studies that identify a slightly increased risk of myocarditis linked to vaccines also emphasized that there are far greater health perils involved with not being inoculated. 

“Although observed rates of myocarditis were higher than expected, the benefits of vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 in reducing the severity of COVID-19, hospital admission and deaths far outweigh the risk of developing myocarditis,” explained the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) at the time. Blankstein elaborated on the heart-COVID connection.

“There is a lot you can do to lower your risk of heart disease. It’s never too late to start some of these preventive efforts.”

“There are various reasons why COVID-19 in general has increased cardiovascular disease,” Blankstein explained, including many related to the unique way in which the virus infects the body.

“That’s one reason why there is a higher risk of a stroke or heart attack. There is also the systemic inflammation that is associated with having a viral illness like COVID-19, and we know inflammation is a factor that can accelerate coronary disease and lead to more events. In addition to that — and these are a direct effect of the virus on the body — there is the stress of both the pandemic in general and stress of individuals who are sick, who may sometimes have a prolonged illness, and we know that contributes as well.” As any casual perusal of TikTok demonstrates, a lot of people have gained weight and become more sedentary during the pandemic.

“I think that heart disease is mostly preventable, so I think it’s important for people to know that nobody is doomed to have heart disease,” Blankstein explained. “There is a lot you can do to lower your risk of heart disease. It’s never too late to start some of these preventive efforts. But in generally, the earlier we start, the better, because when people have heart disease and it’s diagnosed in their 30s or 40s, it’s usually been building up over decades. It’s never too early to start thinking about prevention of heart disease.”

Little People, Big World’s Zach Roloff Undergoes Emergency Brain Surgery

Little People, Big World star has had a “scary 72 hours” after undergoing emergency brain surgery, his wife has revealed.

The TV personality, 32, had to undergo a shunt revision procedure, with wife Tori Roloff taking to social media to update his fans with a number of photos from his bedside in hospital.

The images showed Zach with a bandage wrapped around his head and a number of wires attached to his chest. A second photo seemed to show Zach in good spirits as he shot a thumbs up in the direction of the camera.

Describing what had gone on to her Instagram followers, Tori wrote: “Not exactly how we saw our week going… Zachary had emergency shunt revision this morning. It’s been a scary 72 hours but he is doing well and recovering!!”

She added: “Thank you so much to everyone for the prayers that you have covered us in. We feel them! We are so incredibly blessed by our neurosurgeon team and their attentiveness to Zach’s needs!

“Thank you to our friends and family who have all reached out asking to help. We feel so loved and supported by you.”

She went on to praise Zach’s mum Amy for her help with the couple’s three kids, before saying she’s hopeful the surgery will help relieve Zach’s migraines.

All the latest news, showbiz, lifestyle and sports updates, brought to you by our dedicated American team.

‘You’re a freaking bad a**, Zach,” Tori said. “You just had brain surgery… and handled it like a rockstar. I’m so proud of you.”

Amy also addressed the situation on her social media pages. She took to her account to apologize for cancelling a livestream she had planned so she could help the family in their time of need.

“‘You have to rise to the occasion and I was happy to be able to for Zach and Tori,” she told her followers.

“I’m over here watching the grandkids while… she can be there for Zach. Zach is in the hospital. He has to go through some surgery. We’re just hoping and wishing for the best with lots of prayers.”

She added that the family would appreciate everyone’s prayers for her son. “I’m a firm believer in the power of prayer. And the Good Lord answers them. Regardless, he answers them.”

MSNBC Anchor Rushed to the Hospital

Yasmin Vossoughian had a “nightmare” January. 

After experiencing chest pain for nearly two weeks, Vossoughian, a weekend MSNBC news anchor, was rushed to the hospital on New Years Eve and diagnosed with pericarditis, a condition in which causes thin tissue surrounding the heart to become inflamed. Causes of pericarditis are hard to determine, but include inflammation disorders and, as in Vossoughian’s case, infections like the cold.

Vossoughian said she spent January in and out of hospitals. The journalist needed to get fluid around her heart drained, and was later diagnosed with myocarditis, or inflammation of the heart muscle. 

But Vossoughian could have been diagnosed one day earlier, when she initially sought medical attention at an urgent care on December 30. On that day, the doctor misdiagnosed Vossoughian with acid reflux. 

In an interview with Insider, Vossoughian said though she was “frustrated” at her misdiagnosis, she blamed herself for not choosing to go to the hospital right away. The 44-year-old journalist said she knew she should have gotten her heart checked in urgent care, but a part of her did not want to believe she was having heart problems. 

“A part of me wanted that diagnosis because I didn’t wanna be told it was something with my heart. Because that’s scary,” Vossoughian said. 

With her misdiagnosis, Vossoughian joined the many American women who are more likely than men to have their pain dismissed by a physician — particularly when it comes to heart problems. Women tend to wait longer for heart disease diagnosis, The New York Times reported, and one study suggested that younger women were twice as likely as young men to receive a mental health diagnosis from a medical professional when their symptoms pointed more to heart disease. 

Vossoughian, who broadcasted her misdiagnosis and health journey during a ten minute segment on the January 28 episode of her show, said she is sharing her story to encourage women to prioritize their health and listen to their bodies if something does not seem right.

“A lot of times as women specifically, we don’t trust our gut, we don’t trust our instincts because we’re pleasers, society tells us to be pleasers,” Vossoughian told Insider. “My advice is listen to your gut.”

Vossoughian tells career women to ‘pump the brakes’ and prioritize their physical needs 

On the MSNBC segment, Vossoughian said she ran seven miles multiple times a week, didn’t eat meat or smoke, and did yoga. “Aside from not getting enough sleep and working too much I’m a pretty healthy person.”

But following her month-long health scare, Vossoughian said she acknowledged she pushed too hard at work, at times at the expense of her physical health. Prior to feeling chest pains, Vossoughian said she felt exhausted and feverish, but carried on in the hopes it would go away.

Vossoughian said she might have chosen not to listen to her body because of societal pressure for career women to “do everything and anything, because we can do it all and have it all.”

But the journalist said does not want to go back to her old mindset of putting her physical health to the side. Even now, Vossoughian said she feels tempted to “hop on a plane” to chase news stories, and has to remind herself to “pump the brakes a little bit.” 

“Everything’s going to be there and you’ve got to take care of yourself,” Vossoughian tells women who might feel the same pressure after experiencing a health problem. “You have to not let kind of all of those insecure feelings back in.”

Kate Middleton Stars in Short Film for Mental Health

The Princess of Wales and the radio presenter will discuss mental wellbeing and relationships in a short film that was recorded last month for the Shaping Us campaign

Kate Middleton has been pictured with radio presenter Roman Kemp during the filming of a video to promote her new early years campaign.

The Princess of Wales could be seen wrapping up warm against the winter chill as she sported a sheepskin coat, polo neck jumper and gloves.

Kate smiles for the photographer with Kemp beaming beside her in the image of the pair taken in Hertfordshire last month.

The princess launched her Shaping Us initiative on Tuesday, an ambitious campaign described as her “life’s work” and aimed at highlighting the importance of the early years development of children.

In the short film, due to be released on Friday, Kate and the Capital FM breakfast host will discuss the importance of mental wellbeing, relationships and how by nurturing children in the earliest years of their life, society can build a nation of healthy happy adults.

Kemp, the son of Spandau Ballet star Martin Kemp, has previously spoken candidly about his mental health struggles after the death of close friend and Capital FM producer Joe Lyons.

In 2021, he hosted a BBC Three documentary about the mental health crisis among young men and said that after more than a decade of depression, he had thought about ending his own life.

Kate outlined the scope of her campaign, promoted this week by a series of events and videos, during a reception on Monday, describing it as a long-term project beginning with how a child develops and the importance of the formative years up to the age of five.

She said it will go on to “explore in more depth the importance of a child’s social and emotional world” and the significance of relationships and “surroundings and experiences”.

“And of course, by understanding our own childhoods – what has shaped our own beliefs, relationships, behaviors, and feelings – we, as adults, are better placed to play our part in positively shaping future generations,” the princess added.

Woman Diagnosed with Dementia at 57 – Here are the Early Signs

A mother-of-two who was given the “devastating” news that she has Alzheimer’s at the age of 57 wants to encourage others who have similar symptoms to push for a diagnosis, as she has since realised that “life can be rich” despite the new challenges she now faces.

Jude Thorp, 59, who lives in Oxford, said she first started noticing changes in her cognitive abilities when she was working at The National Theatre in 2016.

Jude had extensive experience and loved her job, but she was struggling to complete easy tasks.

“I was not really playing my best game the last time I was at The National,” she said.

“It was a really simple show, I could do it standing on my head, and I was anxious, and I didn’t know where I was. I was just very disorientated.”

Jude was experiencing bouts of memory loss, where she would often ask the same question multiple times, and she would forget significant conversations about plans.

Jude also felt really fatigued and struggled with her speech and word-finding.

She added: “It was frightening that I would do something and not remember that I had done it, particularly in a work situation.”

Jude believed these symptoms were associated with menopause, which, according to the NHS, usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55.

She “couldn’t conceive” that she could have dementia due to her young age, but her wife Becky Hall, 53, a leadership and life coach and author, encouraged her to see a consultant.

During the first appointment in November 2016, Jude said her symptoms were dismissed and attributed to stress, which she said was “humiliating”.

“Imagine, you know, just being told that you’re a bit daft,” she said.

“That was my first time going to the doctors for something serious in my life and it was horrendous, and afterwards they said there’s nothing wrong with me.”

Jude said she was told by her first consultant that she was experiencing symptoms of memory loss because “she had too much going on” in her life.

But Jude and Becky did not stop there, as they continued to search for answers.

Jude visited two more consultants before undergoing an MRI and lumbar puncture – a procedure used to take a sample of the cerebrospinal fluid from the lower back.

After this, Jude was given the formal diagnosis of young onset dementia, specifically Alzheimer’s disease, in January 2021 – years after her first appointment.

“It was devastating because I didn’t know what it meant and what was going to happen,” she said. “I think I put my life on hold for a while.”

Jude said it was “very difficult” having to break the news to their two daughters, Izzy, 19, and Iona, 17, but she also felt a sense of relief, as not knowing was the “worst bit”.

She explained: “You have to mourn, you have to be cross or angry or upset. I mean, that’s part of grieving for something, isn’t it?

“But for me, I’m so lucky that I’ve got this diagnosis because I can still live well with it.”

Dementia is described as ‘young onset’ when symptoms develop before the age of 65, according to Dementia UK – the specialist dementia nurse charity.

Figures released by Dementia UK in September show that there is a “hidden population” of 70,800 people in the UK who are currently living with young onset dementia.

The charity says there is a misconception that dementia only affects older people and more needs to be done to dispel this myth.

Following the diagnosis, Jude’s GP put her in touch with Dementia UK’s Young Dementia Oxfordshire service, which Jude has described as “a lifeline”.

Her family received tailored support and advice to help them cope with the day-to-day emotional and practical challenges of living with dementia.

Jude explained that she has met several other people who have dementia through the charity, which has been “fantastic” as they are “all in the same boat”.

Acknowledging her diagnosis was extremely difficult, Jude explained that it also allowed her to “blossom” and continue doing the activities she loves, such as swimming.

Back in 2021, after her diagnosis, Jude completed a charity swim, raising £4,000 for Alzheimer’s Society, and she recently took part in the North East Skinny Dip in Northumberland.

Jude also volunteers for a number of food banks, which she really enjoys, and takes part in various research programmes to help health professionals better understand the condition.

Jude is encouraging anyone who may be concerned about their own symptoms to push for a diagnosis, as now she feels like she can be herself again.

“I think accepting a diagnosis of anything allows you to blossom in a way,” she said. “And I think it’s really important that life can be rich.”

She added: “I think it’s about living your best life and doing what you can.”

Jude’s best friend of 42 years Johnty Downham, 61, a former actor who lives in Oxford, has been hugely supportive, and said he admires her positive attitude.

He said: “The diagnosis has meant that the support from Dementia UK has come in and you’re not in a wilderness of anxiety and worry, and having no idea why you as a person or your friend isn’t the same as they used to be, which is really scary.

“So although it’s frightening to find out, in the end, there are lots of positives that have come with it.

“Before she knew, she felt embarrassed and had no explanation, and so, in a sense, getting an affirmation that something’s gone wrong was more positive in the end.”

Girl’s 4 Limbs Amputated After Hospital Mistake

A young girl who lost all four limbs due to a hospital error has been awarded a £39 million settlement by the High Court.

Lawyers for the child, who cannot be identified, said she was taken to Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey with what were described as “red flags for meningitis and sepsis”, including a high temperature and heart rate, leg pain, and drowsiness after vomiting.

But she was discharged after being given paracetamol, her lawyers said, and when her parents took her back to A&E a few hours later with a rash and a fever, she was diagnosed with meningococcal sepsis.

She was transferred to the pediatric intensive care unit of another hospital and suffered from multi-organ failure, and also required several procedures including skin grafts to treat the infection.

The young girl subsequently had above-knee amputations of both of her legs and above-elbow amputations of her arms, reports the Mirror.

Her family brought a claim against Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust, arguing that if she had been treated promptly with antibiotics, she would not have been as ill and would have avoided the amputations.

An agreement was reached after the trust admitted liability.

At a hearing on Friday at the High Court in London, Judge Caspar Glyn KC approved the settlement of around £39 million – part in a lump sum and the rest in annual payments for the rest of her life.

Elizabeth-Anne Gumbel KC, for the girl and her family, said: “It’s a very sad case in which the claimant sadly lost all four of her limbs after not being diagnosed promptly enough in relation to meningitis.”

The barrister said that as well as requiring the amputations, the child also has significant scarring over her body.

Ms Gumbel continued: “She is an extraordinarily brave little girl who is managing in school to do very well academically.”

The court heard part of a letter written by Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust chief executive Neil Dardis sent to the girl’s parents.

In the letter, Mr Dardis apologised, adding that her care “fell below the standard (the girl) was entitled to expect” and that she should not have been discharged.

Bradley Martin KC, for the trust, added: “There is no amount of money that can truly compensate (her) for her injuries.

“She will have access to the care and technology she needs.”

Deborah Nadel, from the law firm Fieldfisher representing the girl and her family, said: “This child’s injuries and severe disabilities were completely avoidable with proper care.

“All the red flags for meningitis and sepsis were there for doctors to see. Specific protocols for treating these illnesses exist to protect patients and doctors, but they only work if they are followed.

Disney Star Reveals Heartbreaking Medical Diagnosis

Ashley Tisdale is reflecting on her personal experience with hair loss.

The High School Musical alum opened up about her Alopecia diagnosis, letting social media followers know that if they also struggle with the disease, they’re not alone.

Alopecia and hair loss are fairly common, but a lot of people feel embarrassed to talk about these issues,” Ashley shared on Instagram Jan. 11. “Any type of hair loss can affect your self-esteem, especially if you feel like you’re the only one going through it. That’s why I want to talk about it openly—because it’s nothing to be ashamed of.”

The Picture This star went on to list the possible different causes of the condition, including factors such as hormone levels and stress.

“Sometimes it’s connected to hormones, other times to heredity, and for me, it’s connected to stress overload,” she continued. “Today on @frenshe I’m sharing what I’ve learned about my alopecia and how I help manage it.”

In her personal essay shared to her website, the “Be Good To Me” singer recalled the moment she began to notice a change in her hair.

“A couple of months ago, while simultaneously moving, starting a home renovation, and kicking off a TV project, I noticed that a patch of my hair was starting to fall out,” Ashley wrote. “Nothing major—just a small section behind my ear—but still, it was happening, and not for the first time. A few years ago, the same thing happened when I was overly stressed, so I knew exactly what I was experiencing: alopecia.”

Ashley went on to detail three main suggestions she has to manage Alopecia, which included not letting worry take over, seek treatment (if you want to) and to stay on top of managing stress.

As for how she dealt with managing her stress? She changed up her diet.

“Eating with a focus on gut health also helps me thrive,” she continued. “I loved the way I felt, and I also felt great about eating fresh food instead of reaching for random convenient snacks.”

Ashley also wants those who are going through the same thing to know that they must prioritize their self care.

“Hair loss is one of my body’s ways of signaling stress overload—and a sign to prioritize my self-care rituals.” she explained. “Whatever your self-care plan may be, embrace it.”

Blogger Dies from ‘Protein Powder’ She Ordered Online

Beth Matthews, 26, died a short time after taking the substance, which she told staff was protein powder, in March last year.

Matthews, originally from Cornwall, was described in court as “bright and vivacious”.

She was a well-known mental health blogger with thousands of followers.

Her inquest heard that she was being treated on a secure ward at the Priory, Cheadle Royal for a personality disorder.

The court was told that paramedics were called on March 21 after reports Matthews had taken an overdose.

Assistant Coroner Andrew Bridgman told the jury Matthews had “ingested a substance that came through the post, quite quickly became unwell, was taken urgently to hospital where she sadly died”.

In a statement, paramedic Kate Barnes said that when she arrived staff at the unit told her that Matthews “had a parcel delivered to the unit, which she opened in front of them and managed to consume”.

Inside the parcel was “a small plastic, screw top container”.

Matthews swallowed “an unknown amount” of the substance it contained and had apparently told staff the package contained “protein powder”, the inquest heard.

Barnes was told that patients were allowed to open their own parcels if supervised by staff.

The jury was told that the package had “foreign writing on it” and that the substance had apparently “been bought on the internet”.

‘Incredible character’

A statement from Matthews’ mother Jane was also read to the court.

She said her daughter was “an incredible character” who was “bright and vivacious” and who “lit up the lives” of everyone she met.

She loved sport and excelled at sailing, completing the gruelling Fastnet race at the age of 15.

The jury heard that in 2019 after a suicide attempt Matthews suffered life-changing injuries.

She blogged about her recovery and her own mental health, gaining thousands of followers on Twitter.

Jane Matthews said her daughter had been able to help those who reached out to her and touched so many lives.

The inquest continues and is expected to finish next week.

TV Reporter Suffers Medical Emergency During Live Broadcast

Footage of a local TV journalist suffering a medical emergency on air Sunday has prompted fresh conspiracy theories about the coronavirus vaccine.

Canadian TV reporter Jessica Robb said Monday she faced “overwhelming” harassment after she felt sick, strained to speak and became unsteady on her feet during a weekend live broadcast.

Robb, who works for CTV in Edmonton, was delivering a stand-up report Sunday when her speech stalled and her movements faltered.

In the footage, Robb can be seen breathing heavily as she responds to studio presenter Nahreman Issa, during the 6pm news. After a deep gulp of breath, she begins to confuse her words.

Robb tries to press on, repeating the same phrase several times before she says: “Sorry Nahreman, I’m not feeling very well right now and I’m about to…” She then makes an incoherent noise before Issa intervenes.

Just before the live feed is cut, Robb can be seen with her eyes beginning to droop as she stumbles on the spot. “She is not alone,” Issa then clarifies. “She is with photog[raphy] operators.”

“We will make sure that Jessica is OK, and we’ll give you guys an update a little bit later,” Issa told viewers.

CTV Edmonton later said Robb “became ill” during the 6 p.m. newscast, but was “feeling better and is now resting.”

On Monday, Robb offered more insight while taking aim at unfounded speculation in a statement shared by the station on Twitter.

She said she “received an overwhelming amount of harassment and hatred, tied to false theories about the reason for the incident.”

“While I will not share private medical information publicly, I can say that there is no cause for concern and that my understanding of my own medical background provides a reasonable explanation for what happened,” she said.

“I can, however, confirm that the situation was in no way related to the COVID-19 vaccine.”

Here is her full statement:

In early December, Atlanta Hawks broadcaster Bob Rathbun convulsed and fainted on the air, but returned to work a few weeks later.

Actress Dies After Taking Psychedelics at Healing Retreat

A 32-year-old actress reportedly took her own life months after drinking hallucinogenic tea while on a three-day retreat in rural England in June 2021.

Kate Hyatt paid around $750 to attend a healing retreat located in rural Worcestershire, England, Daily Mail reported. According to Hyatt’s parents, Kate experimented with a hallucinogenic tea that contained wachuma, a plant which contains illegal psychedelics.

Hyatt’s family also believes she ingested ayahuasca on this retreat and that these drugs ultimately led to her mental health deteriorating and her subsequent suicide.

The family has revealed messages to The Times from Kate’s phone which detailed how she took “medicine” at some sort of healing ceremony. Additionally, receipts were sent to retreat-goers which warned they could experience their “own death and rebirth,” as well as other dramatic side effects.

Other documents found on Kate’s phone related to the retreat refer to “energy healing” and taking “healing plants.”

Just one month before her October 2021 suicide, Miss Hyatt wrote about the effects of the retreat “medicine” to one of the alleged retreat organizers, Marianna Willis. “Essentially it feels like my nervous system is on fire as well as my brain and I just wondered if you had advice as to how the medicine could have affected me,” Hyatt wrote, The Times reported.

Kate’s father, Ray, told The Times these so-called healing retreats are “targeting vulnerable people,” and said he was angry “these people are purporting to be in some kind of caring role, to have some kind of expertise in “healing.’”

The parents of Kate hope to warn others not to experiment with similar hallucinogenics they surmise led to Kate’s suicide. “We wouldn’t want anybody else’s health to deteriorate in the way that Kate did,” Ray Hyatt explained.

The usage of psychedelics like ayahuasca has been increasingly prevalent among celebrities in recent years. Actress Megan Fox and NFL football player Aaron Rodgers have openly discussed using the drug.
