HÄLSA. “Tillämpbara forskningsresultat utmynnar i det optimistiska att Alzheimers sjukdomen kan tryckas tillbaka, men då gäller det att ta tillvara de forskningsrön som faktiskt finns idag”, säger Agneta Schnittger (MD) och Ingemar Ljungqvist till NewsVoice i ett öppet samtal om Alzheimers sjukdom.
(NaturalHealth365) Colorful, juicy, and highly nutritious berries offer more to your health than you can imagine. Over the last decade, substantial experimental data indicate that consuming berries protects brain health by preventing brain damage and age-related memory loss. The variety of beneficial compounds in berries not only will reduce the risk of many diseases but also prevent conditions such as stress and depression.
(NaturalHealth365) According to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates, in the U.S. alone, over 34 million people live with diabetes, and another 88 million with prediabetes. Add the two numbers together, and you end up with a “public health crisis.”
(NaturalHealth365) According to the American Cancer Society, 1 in 125 men and 1 in 417 women will be diagnosed with esophageal cancer. While smoking significantly increases the risk of this potentially deadly disease – which has a 5-year survival rate of less than 50 percent – even people who have never smoked can develop it, especially if they drink a lot of alcohol, have a family history, have chronic acid reflux, or have other recognized risk factors.
(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) Probiotics and prebiotics – substances that encourage and nourish the presence of beneficial bacteria in the body – have grown in popularity as science reveals their many health benefits. One prebiotic in particular, inulin, is currently enjoying a lot of “buzz” – due to recent research showing that it may improve digestive health and combat obesity.
Inulin, a soluble dietary fiber found in plants, can’t be broken down by the body. While this may sound like a drawback, it is actually a huge “plus.” To learn why – and to discover the surprising disease-fighting benefits of inulin – keep reading via https://www.naturalhealth365.com/benefits-of-inulin-3629.html
(NaturalHealth365) It’s well-known that people with poor dental health are more likely to suffer from heart disease and other chronic health conditions. This could be because people who don’t take care of their teeth are less likely to practice other good health habits, like exercising, eating healthy food, and not smoking. But, doctors also point to an apparent link between inflammation and gingivitis (an early form of gum disease) as a possible explanation.
(NaturalHealth365) Probably the single most important property of magnesium in the body is its ability to act as a natural biological antagonist to calcium. As most adults have excess calcium throughout their bodies, it is this reciprocal relationship between magnesium and calcium that makes most people in need of regular magnesium supplementation.
(NaturalHealth365) The vast majority of American adults say they feel anxiety or stress – every day. As one of the most stressed nations on earth, it’s time to start taking a serious look at the connection between (chronic) stress and the immune system.
An overview of studies surrounding stress and the immune system shows a link between stress and how the immune system functions that goes back decades. When you’re feeling stressed out, depressed, or lonely, you shouldn’t be surprised if you end up getting physically sick.
Turns out, your state of mind and how you respond to stressful situations does dramatically influence the development of disease or wellbeing.
