'Throughout the world, we will see proliferating technologies that will eventually assist in a greater understanding of the mechanisms that regulate the incredible interactions between nutrition and immunity. 

The short-sighted conventional medical approach of inserting microorganisms into the body will be replaced by our understanding of new aspects in the complex relationships between bacteria and inflammatory processes which ultimately cause disease more than any single factor within the human body.'

'Poor sleep may be an “early warning beacon” or a “distress call” alerting to the beginnings of Alzheimer’s disease, according to new research. While sleep problems are common in Alzheimer’s patients, poor sleep may also be contributing to the disease by driving the buildup of amyloid plaques in the brain, a hallmark of Alzheimer's disease.

Study author Bryce Mander, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, told Medicine Net:1
 

"Sleep appears to be a missing piece in the Alzheimer's puzzle, and enhancing sleep may lessen the cognitive burden that Alzheimer's disease imparts.”'

TEN REASONS TO IGNORE YOUR DOCTOR: MORE AND MORE PEOPLE DISTRUST TRADITIONAL MEDICINE AND FOR SOME VERY GOOD REASONS


Photo Credit: Renegade Health


'Once upon a time, those who went to doctors were called patients. Now patients are called health consumers. Doctors were once called physicians, wise and caring gatekeepers of our health who intervened on our behalf when we got sick. Now they are called tier one health care providers.

Once there were doctors (MDs) and nurses (RNs). Now, there are so many different licensed health care providers it’s hard to keep track of them all.

In an article in MainSt by S.Z. Berg, heath consumers give better ratings to non-physicians to handle their care then traditional M.D.’s. In an interview study of 28,000 patients conducted by Vanguard Communications, patients rated naturopaths as five stars. Osteopathic doctors were close to the top. But internal medicine and family practice M.D.’s were near the bottom.'

Change Your DNA In Just Over 40 Minutes

'Could you do something simple in less than an hour to extend your life?

We think our DNA is set for life, but it’s not. It shrinks over time and makes us age. Now researchers at the University of California at San Francisco believe that you actually can change and improve your DNA, which could, in turn, extend your life!

Though they don’t fully understand the mechanism, they know that tiny pieces of DNA called telomeres protect us by helping to keep chromosomes intact. Stress causes those oh-so-important telomeres to shorten, and the shorter they become, the more quickly our cells age and the more susceptible we are to everything from cancer to heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis -- and early mortality. How’s that for a list to avoid?'

How to Reduce Calcium Scores

Jim has an elevated coronary calcium score in the 95% percentile indicating high risk for futureheart attack. He is being treated by his cardiologist with daily aspirin and atorvastatin(lipitor), a statin drug to reduce cholesterol.

Currently we are following a number of similar patients with elevated coronary calcium score treated with statin drugs by their cardiologist. The elevated calcium score indicates higher risk for future coronary event such as chest pain, angina, heart attack etc. Current cardiology dogma dictates treatment with statin drugs to lower cholesterol, thus preventing heart disease.

'Even scientists now recognize the power agents that exist within some essential oils which stops cancer spreading, and which induces cancerous cells to close themselves down. Their disease-preventing ability is no longer doubted, especially for cancer.

A healthy body, from head to foot, typically has a frequency ranging from 62 to 78 MHz, while disease begins at 58Hz. During some testing with frequency and the frequency of essential oils it was measured that: Holding a cup of coffee dropped one man’s frequency from 66 Hz to 58 MHz in just 3 seconds. It took three days for his frequency to return to normal.'

'Most of us face anxiety in our lives every now and then. It tends to come at certain times, showing up when we need to make a speech, teach a class, present a new idea to the boss, or meet the new in-laws for the first time.

It’s not comfortable, but it usually dissipates within a short time, leaving few if any lasting effects.

There’s another type of anxiety that’s even more concerning, though. It follows us on a daily basis, like little ants constantly crawling up our backs whispering words of fear in our ears.
 

Be afraid. Be very afraid. Or at least, be very uneasy.'

5 UNEXPECTED BENEFITS OF MASSAGE THERAPY

'Getting a massage shouldn’t be a luxury. Because of the obvious benefits of massage therapy, I believe that massages should be part of routine life — for absolutely everyone.

About a year ago, my mother gifted me with dozens (literally dozens!) of extra massages from a membership-based massage chain. I’d never had routine massages before this. Instead, I’d only gotten massages as one-off, special-occasion gifts from loved ones. 

But armed with the opportunity to get a weekly massage, I took full advantage.

Now I’m addicted.'

'Blood clots, strokes, and heart attacks: the serious negative side effects of hormonal contraceptives are undeniable.

Last month saw the release of a new study that makes the connection, not for the first time, between newer birth control pills and the risk of serious injury or death. 

Researchers from the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom revealed that a woman using a brand of oral contraceptive with a more recently created formulation has 4 times the risk of developing a blood clot when compared to a woman who is not taking any brand of birth control pills.'

Eating Just 15 Grams of Nuts Extends Life and Substantially Prevents Early Death

'Eating nuts daily has been linked to lower all-cause mortality in many studies. Dutch researchers have now found that snacking on just half a handful of nuts every day could significantly lower overall and cause-specific mortality.

The protective effects on human metabolism from nuts is largely explained by their ability to regulate inflammation and oxidation. Almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamias, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios and walnuts are all examples of tree nuts which have demonstrated profound effects on our health.'

'The long hot dog days of summer have arrived, with temperatures across much of the country regularly reaching into the upper 90’s and beyond for days on end. With the heat comes a heightened risk of losing too much of our bodies fluids, a condition known as .Our bodies are normally about two-thirds water.
 

When levels dip below that amount, the result can be dehydration – which means our bodies lack the proper amount of water and fluids. Though dehydration can be a serious and even a life-threatening condition, it can be avoided and treated easily with common sense measures in most instances.'

'Since biblical times dates were to believed to possess profound healing properties, but only now is science catching up to confirm our distant ancestors knew exactly what they were talking about. 

I took the liberty of doing a cursory meta-analysis of the extant research on dates available through the National Library of Medicine's biomedical database MEDLINE, accessible of course through the google-like search engine pubmed.gov

And to my pleasant surprise the research on dates as a whole (including the fruit, pollen and seed extract) reveals approximately 19 specific beneficial modes of action, and a preventive and/or therapeutic role in about 40 different health conditions.'
