(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.
(NaturalHealth365)Are you eating a vegan (100% plant-based) diet? For many people, this lifestyle can be fantastic – filled with health benefits. But, for others, the poor selection of foods – on a continual basis – can create serious nutritional deficiencies. So, like with any lifestyle decision, you need to be careful.
For example, if your food choices don’t provide enough vitamin A – in other words, not eating enough beta carotene-rich foods or healthy fats to assure we convert that fat-soluble vitamin A to retinol – we could develop severemacular degenerationand, even, blindness! →
(NaturalHealth365) Even if you try to eat a healthy, organic diet – you could be at risk for nutritional deficiencies without realizing it. In fact, the National Institutes of Health concluded that “the vast majority of people in both affluent and emerging industrialized countries do not reach even 75 percent of the RDAs for numerous trace minerals.” →

Are you depressed? Anxious? Hyperactive? Attention Deficit? Psychotic? Delusional? Schizophrenic? Bipolar? Social anxiety disorder? Panic attacks? Do you have a disease? Has it been diagnosed? Is there a cure?
Cancer — always believed to be caused by genetic cell mutations — can in reality be caused by infections from viruses, bacteria, and fungi.
“I believe that, conservatively, 15 to 20% of all cancer is caused by infections; however, the number could be larger — maybe double,” said Dr. Andrew Dannenberg, director of the Cancer Center at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. Dr. Dannenberg made the remarks in a speech in December 2007 at the annual international conference of the American Association for Cancer Research.
Whether caused by infections or not, once cancerous conditions are well underway the weakening of the immune system and the battle that ensues between the good guys and the bad is cheered on by hordes of infectious agents that increase in density, power and form as a patient’s cancers get worse.
Cancer also involves inflammation, acid pH, low oxygen conditions accompanied by low CO2 levels, lower core body temperatures as well as nutritional deficiencies and high levels of tissue and cellular toxicity with heavy metals, chemicals and radiological exposure…Read more
