(NaturalHealth365) We sometimes use the words “gut instinct” to refer to a deeply held belief or powerful impulse – without fully realizing just how appropriate that phrase is. Researchers are beginning to recognize the immense power of the gut microbiome (the community of bacteria living in the gastrointestinal tract) to protect against disease, regulate metabolism and even influence mood and outlook.
(NaturalHealth365)Over five million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease. While most people think of Alzheimer’s as a disease that merely results in cognitive decline, the disease is the 6th leading cause of death within the U.S. and kills more than prostate cancer and breast cancer combined each year.
As heart disease deaths begin to decrease, deaths from Alzheimer’s disease have been increasing. A recent study found a link between low intake of flavonoids and dementia when compared to individuals who had a higher intake of flavonoid-rich foods. This discovery may be significant in preventing and treating this health crisis in the future. →
(NaturalHealth365)Can we really prevent life-shattering illnesses such as dementia with natural health strategies? Breaking new science says that we can!
It’s estimated there are 5.8 million American’s living with Alzheimer’s, a debilitating illness that strips a person of their cognitive function and independence. Families suffer as they watch their loved ones slowly forget who they are.
According to the pharmaceutical industry and the media, ‘there is no cure.’ But, we now know that to be untrue. And, for those in doubt, just look up the work of Dale E. Bredesen, MD. But, there are many other physicians doing fantastic work in the area of neurodegenerative disease. →
(NaturalHealth365) You’ve long heard the old adage, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Turns out, there’s a lot of truth to what your grandma was saying when she offered you an apple instead of junk food. And, while apples are one of the most widely-consumed fruits in America, they’re often underrated nutritionally. →
(Prepare For Change) At a meeting of the Royal Geographic Societyof London, Earthwatch Institute declared bees the most invaluable species on this planet, as reported by The Guardianin 2008. And along with it comes this disturbing piece of news. If the bees were to disappear today, mankind would follow suit very soon! Scientists and wildlife experts have joined bees to the list of species that are doomed to extinction in the near future if humanity does not do something about its most beneficial insects. →
(Natural News) Each year, a million people are diagnosed with colon cancer globally and half a million die from it. It’s a startling statistic, but there is a silver lining here: It also happens to be one type of cancer where diet can play a huge role in both prevention and treatment. While diet can contribute to anywhere from 20 to 42 percent of all cancers in humans, that range rises to 50 to 90 percent when you look at colon cancer specifically. Perhaps not surprisingly, it’s the unhealthy Western diet that is largely behind this effect. →
(NaturalHealth365) Many decades ago, Jay and I used to speak about the (undiscovered) healing power of juices. We didn’t have words connected to the hidden power behind chlorophyll, yet we knew that the dark leafy greens were the powerhouses behind the thousands of people healing from diet-related diseases. Unfortunately, most conventionally-trained physicians still don’t use ‘food therapy’ as their first line of defense against disease. In reality, modern medicine is only centered around toxic drugs and surgical procedures – simply because they were never taught the value of nutrition in medical school. →
(NaturalHealth365) Both celiac disease and gluten sensitivity (or intolerance) are growing problems across the world – especially in Europe and North America. In fact, it’s now estimated that approximately 5% of the population in these areas deal with it – experiencing symptoms like depression, nausea, skin rashes, and diarrhea.
Chlorpyrifos—described by some as “the mostdangerous pesticideyou’ve never heard of”—is an insect-killingorganophosphate. Organophosphates trace their rootsback to Nazi-era IG Farben nerve gases; contemporary scientists still describe the compounds as “junior-strength nerve agents” that have a mechanism of action comparable to sarin. Dow Chemical—the company that helped bring the world mustard gas during World War I and napalm and Agent Orange during the Vietnam war—is the manufacturer of chlorpyrifos-containing insecticides.
