(Naturalhealth365) What do brain disorders like autism, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s have in common? New research reveals a shocking link.
Caring for a loved one with any of these “incurable” brain abnormalities can be heart-wrenching. Whether it’s a parent who can’t remember their child or a child unable to communicate their emotions with a parent, brain disorders have a considerable effect on families and their communities. →

(NaturalHealth365) Did you know that most processed foods contain additives that are known to cause brain damage and place us at risk for neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s disease and dementia?
Unfortunately, these “excitotoxins” (like aspartame) can be found in just about all heavily processed foods, meaning many canned, bottled and boxed foods. To be clear, the science swirling around about these dangerous substances is pretty grim, as you’ll see. →

It has been known for several decades that gut health appears to have an effect on mental health and brain health – the so-called gut-brain axis. For example, autoimmune diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease have been linked with mood disorders, anxiety and depression. However, the precise mechanism by which the gut-brain axis functions has been largely unknown – but now, new research is starting to shed light on this matter. →

(Collective-Evolution) The most widely used oil in the United States can be found in processed/packaged foods, in the deep fryers of countless fast food restaurants and even mixed into feed for livestock. Soybean oil is everywhere and unfortunately it is not healthy for us humans. Likely the livestock as well should not be consuming it at all. →

(NaturalHealth365) One of the most promising areas of personalized medicine is the continued research of gut microbiology and its pivotal role in human health and longevity science – especially as it relates to Parkinson’s disease.
For example, groundbreaking research at The University of Helsinki Institute of Biotechnology in Finland published findings in EBioMedicine that the gut microbiology of Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients is significantly correlated with disease progression. Compared to the control group of relatively healthy persons, those with PD have vastly different gut bacteria. →

(NaturalHealth365) Both celiac disease and gluten sensitivity (or intolerance) are growing problems across the world – especially in Europe and North America. In fact, it’s now estimated that approximately 5% of the population in these areas deal with it – experiencing symptoms like depression, nausea, skin rashes, and diarrhea.

(NaturalHealth365) Black pepper – sometimes called the “King of spices” – is one of the most commonly used spices in the world. Made by grinding peppercorns, the dried berries that come from the Piper nigrum vine, it offers a mildly spicy, sharp flavor that goes well with a multitude of culinary dishes.
Like many other spices, this spice packs a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant punch

It has been 13 years since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) supplied fast-tracked approval for Merck’s Gardasil vaccine—promoted for the prevention of cervical cancer and other conditions attributed to four types of human papillomavirus (HPV). The agency initially licensed Gardasil solely for 9- to 26-year-old girls and women, but subsequent FDA decisions now enable Merck to market Gardasil’s successor—the nine-valent Gardasil 9 vaccine—to a much broader age range—9 to 45 years—and to both males and females.

Why are we making such little progress in our attempts to uncover the causes of various forms of brain degeneration? These days we frequently hear about breakthroughs in our understanding of diseases like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis, but when the discussion turns to the brain, there seems to be very little news.
Medical research continues to operate with a reductionist mentality. The human body is looked upon as simply a compilation of various parts and systems, and each of these is looked upon as functioning independent of the others.

In this day and age, most are aware that organic food is better for the health of people and the planet. With increasing levels of exposure to toxins in the environment — like the burning of fossil fuels and industrial waste — now more than ever, it’s important to consume a clean diet to keep the body healthy and strong. But while organic food consumption is on the rise, we still have much to learn about the overall benefits for personal and collective health, not only on a physical level, but also mentally and, some say, spiritually too.
