(NaturalHealth365) Approximately 5.4 million Americans are currently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, and this number is expected to triple by 2050. In addition, the rate of children with autism is said to be 1 in 50 throughout the United States. What is happening to our collective brain health?
(Natural News) Antibiotic resistance is a genuine health threat. It is considered one of the major health issues of this age. Severe burn victims are particularly susceptible to antibiotic-resistant infection because their body tissues create a niche environment for pathogens. Antibiotic ointments used to be an effective treatment but the rising threat of antibiotic resistance leaves many burn patients vulnerable.
(NaturalHealth365) Check your tongue – is it white? You may have Candida albicans which produces about 180 chemical toxins. These harmful substances are capable of causing any number of ‘unexplainable‘ health problems.
A white tongue, lack of energy, or irritability are early warning signs of poor health. In fact, I would suggest that most people with chronic degenerative diseases like IBS, fibromyalgia, or autoimmune conditions suffer from Candida. Don’t ignore the signs.
A new study in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) patients using dietary supplementation with a unique saturated fat has confirmed earlier research that a non-drug based approach can stabilize and even improve a degenerative disease whose symptoms are usually managed with drugs and not cured. →
(NaturalHealth365) While most health-conscious people realize that coconut oil is actually a super food, for quite some time coconut oil has been demonized by the mainstream media due to its saturated fat content.
And, another thing the media “forgets” to tell you is: those saturated fats differ significantly from the (toxic) fats found in most conventionally-raised animal products, and the unique array of fatty acids found in coconut oil actually offers a variety of positive health effects.
For example, a deeper look into coconut oil’s role in nutrition and health brings to light even more unique benefits than most people would imagine. In fact, studies show that coconut oil can naturally boosts energy levels and supports weight loss in some remarkable ways. →
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.
(Natural News) Coconut is a popular health-promoting and versatile medicinal food that provides a variety of benefits, including boosting heart health, reducing stress, and preventing brain diseases like Alzheimer’s. Now, recent research suggests that coconut, specifically coconut oil, has antifungal properties as well. A study published in the American Society of Microbiology’s journal mSphere found that coconut oil can control the overgrowth of Candida albicans, a type of pathogenic yeast,in mice. This suggests that coconut oil can be used as an alternative to antifungal drugs to reduce the risk of contracting infections caused by this pathogen. →
(Natural News)Patients with a candida infection need to eat as many anti-fungal foods as possible. These healthy foods kill the yeast by starving them of sugar and breaking down candida’s cellular walls. One of the best anti-fungal foods is coconut oil. It contains caprylic acid and lauric acid which support the immune system. →
In the 1960s, food manufacturers wanted consumers to buy their margarines and hydrogenated oils. To do that, they had to “discredit” the products people had always used in their homes to prepare their food.
Olive oil,coconut oil, and lard were no longer “good for you,” they said. The marketing campaign for their synthetic products began and coconut oil was portrayed as an artery-clogging and cholesterol-raising substance. People were told that it contained too much saturated fat and contributed to heart attacks.
