(NaturalHealth365) Cancer – second only to heart disease as a leading cause of death in the United States – claimed over 600,000 lives in 2019 alone. And Alzheimer’s disease, now the sixth leading cause of death, currently affects over 5 million Americans – a number that the Alzheimer’s Association predicts will skyrocket as the population ages, potentially tripling by the year 2050.
While these statistics are bleak (conventionally speaking), we are not helpless in the face of these two dreadful health conditions. In fact, scientific research supports the ability of a plant-based diet to help alleviate and even prevent both cancer cell growth and brain damage.
(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)Flavonoids – compounds found in certain fruits and vegetables – are known for their ability to protect us from toxins, environmental radiation and (ultimately) the oxidative damage that causes disease. Over the past decade, one flavonoid in particular has been studied for its immune-boosting, heart health and anti-aging benefits, with multiple studies showing quercetin’s ability to increase life span.
Recently, a new meta-analysisdug into the incredible heart benefits of quercetin, finding that supplementation was effective at lowering blood pressure. But, beyond that, it also offers a number of other health benefits that lower the risk of heart disease, such as reducing excessive amounts of cholesterol and reducing the risk of atherosclerosis. →
A study on patients with AD found that less than a gram of turmeric daily, taken for three months, resulted in ‘remarkable improvements.’
Turmeric has been used in India for over 5,000 years, which is likely why still today both rural and urban populations have some of the lowest prevalence rates of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) in the world.
(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. →
June 19th, 2018 By Sayer Ji Contributing writer for Wake Up World Presently, there are no pharmaceutical interventions that effectively slow, and certainly not reverse, age-related cerebrovascular pathologies linked to conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and stroke. A study on turmeric extract, however, indicates that a natural curative agent already exists and is as close to the….Read more
But do not stock up on too much sugar-rich chocolates at the check-out counter just yet.
Jeffrey Tessem, study author and assistant professor of nutrition, dietetics, and food science at Brigham Young University (BYU), said that for it to actually be effective, one has to eat a lot of cocoa without having a lot of sugar in it.
“It’s the compound in cocoa you’re after,” Tessem emphasized.
