(NaturalHealth365) Long-term, low-level inflammation is at the root of so many degenerative health conditions currently affecting millions of people. These potentially life-threatening illnesses include heart disease, cancer (the number one and number two causes of death, respectively, in the United States), atherosclerosis, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis and over 100 different forms of autoimmune disorders. Studies like this one from MD Anderson Cancer Center, show that the combination of two common nutrients – ginger and curcumin-rich turmeric – may hold the key to quenching chronic inflammation, and fighting the deadly conditions it can trigger. →
Hemp oil, or CBD oil, has become one of the single most popular medicinal compounds in the world.

(NaturalHealth365) One of the most promising areas of personalized medicine is the continued research of gut microbiology and its pivotal role in human health and longevity science – especially as it relates to Parkinson’s disease.
For example, groundbreaking research at The University of Helsinki Institute of Biotechnology in Finland published findings in EBioMedicine that the gut microbiology of Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients is significantly correlated with disease progression. Compared to the control group of relatively healthy persons, those with PD have vastly different gut bacteria. →
(Natural News) There is a system within the human body that regulates pain and modulates the immune system. This little-known system of the body is a major gateway for regulating inflammation in the cells. This body system is often left out of human anatomy textbooks. This system is like a door that connects the nervous system with the immune system. This innate portal of healing is called the endocannibinoid system. The key to unlocking this door is found in cannibinoids, which are plant-based or endogenous compounds that bring down inflammation in the cells and communicate healing to the body.

Fluoridation is the addition of an industrial compound to the public drinking water for the purpose of altering the consumer’s oral health. Municipalities that add fluoride to their water supplies do so based on a “one dose fits all” approach. This blanket approach fails to address the smaller size of infants and children and the larger proportions of water and other fluoridated beverages they drink. Significantly, a formula-fed infant drinks its weight in water every three to four days, resulting in the most vulnerable members of the population consuming by far the largest dose of fluoride
