(NaturalHealth365) For many, working from home is now the “new normal.” And, for millions of Americans, this means long hours seated at a desk. Believe it or not, while excessive sitting hardly seems like a dangerous activity, it actually presents a serious risk to health. In fact, the threat is so severe that health experts are now characterizing prolonged sitting as “the new smoking.”
(NaturalHealth365) Over a million people in the United States are currently diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), it is likely that millions more are battling similar symptoms but don’t meet all the standards for a formal diagnosis.
(NaturalHealth365) Greater than 3,000: that’s how many new cases of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) are diagnosed every year in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, ALL is responsible for 20% of all cancers in people younger than 20 years old. And, sadly, the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute finds that up to 1 in 5 kids who undergo chemotherapy for ALL will relapse – even if they initially receive a complete remission of the cancer. →
You may have heard that taking extra vitamins can improve your memory, protect against Alzheimer’s disease, or help you ace that test. Are “brain vitamins” really a thing? In reality, a debate exists over whether vitamins can boost your brain health. You may see wild claims that one vitamin or another may make you smarter, wiser, or delay aging. Others say they do not actually improve your brain’s functioning and make you smarter but do support an already-healthy brain. →
Did you know that up to 90% of Alzheimer’s cases are caused by diet, lifestyle and environmental factors, not genetics? Which means that the #1 place you have most control over your level of risk is: with what you eat.
Is memory loss and decreased brain power inevitable as we age? Many people in their 40s, 50s and beyond are told that it is and there is nothing that can be done about it. Is that true? Of course not.
Steps can be taken to not only stop memory loss, but also reverse it. Here is a simple step. New research from Rush University Medical Center in Chicago found that eating just one serving of leafy green vegetables a day takes a decade off an aging brain. Two servings produced even greater effects. I explain how below.
(Naturalhealth365) As communication companies intensify their efforts to institute 5G wireless across the nation, parents at a California elementary school are uniting in protest against a cell phone tower on the premises – which they say has caused seven people to develop cancer. At a recent, packed school board meeting, parents threatened to pull their children from the school unless the tower is removed.
(NaturalHealth365) Truth be told, the presence of aluminum in the environment is nothing new. This naturally-occurring metal is the third most prevalent element on the planet. But, to be clear: aluminum has no biological value inside the human body – which makes the demand for an effective way to detox more important than most people can imagine.
No doubt, the modern ‘abundance’ of aluminum in processed foods, cookware, food storage wraps and medications has raised concerns among many integrative healthcare providers – who view the accumulated toxicity of aluminum to be a contributing factor to the rising rates of autism and Alzheimer’s disease.
Now, astudy highlightsthe ability of silicon-rich mineral water to safely decrease levels of aluminum in the body. Even more encouragingly, consumption of this kind of water was associated with improvements in cognition among individuals with Alzheimer’s disease.
(Natural News) One out of every five Americans has been convinced to take a statin drug in order to lower their blood cholesterol levels and supposedly prevent heart disease. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) admit that statin drug use is on the rise; Atorvastatin (Lipitor) is the best-selling prescription drug in the world. The problem with statin drugs is theycause memory loss, learning difficulties, muscle wasting, rapid aging, irritability, and mental health issues. Peer reviewed research also indicates that almost half of all women who religiously take statinsultimately develop diabetes.
