(Natural News) Blueberries are among the most well-known and best-loved superfoods on the planet. Aside from being a delicious and versatile food ingredient, blueberries also provide plenty of essential nutrients and disease-fighting phytonutrients. For instance, research suggests that blueberries have one of the highest antioxidant levels of all plant-based foods. Antioxidants help reduce oxidative stress, a harmful event that has been linked to various age-related chronic diseases, such as heart disease, neurodegenerative diseases and cancer.
(NaturalHealth365) As many as two percent of the population are affected by rheumatoid arthritis. Characterized by joint inflammation that often causes deformity, many individuals diagnosed with the disease deal with pain, tender joints, fatigue, and additional life-altering symptoms.
Of course, conventionally speaking, there’s “no cure” for rheumatoid arthritis. However, a new study found that taking garlic supplements resulted in reduced body aches and discomfort for patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Not only did garlic supplementation result in improvements in pain, it reduce inflammation, fatigue, and disease activity scores, as well.
(NaturalHealth365) Chronic cellular inflammation is one of our biggest enemies – in terms of achieving optimal health. In fact, many health experts say that inflammation is the root cause of disease. In addition, the psychological (and emotional) stress of living in modern society can actually lower our ability to regulate the inflammatory response.
Naturally, the question we ought to ask ourselves is, “what causes inflammation?” And, the obvious answer is poor nutrition and too many toxins – which creates an overly-acidic condition in the body. So, which foods create an acidic environment in the body?
(NaturalHealth365)According to the National Institutes of Health, over 23 million Americans currently live with some type of autoimmune disease – which can encompass such potentially debilitating conditions as rheumatic arthritis, lupus, irritable bowel disease, type 1 diabetes, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Autoimmune diseases – which arise when the immune system mistakenly attacks the body’s own organs, tissues and cells – are notoriously complex and difficult to treat. →
(Prepare For Change) As the worlds foremost expert on sodium bicarbonate use as a primer medicine I will break the second law of general semantics and yell from the top of the highest mountain through the strongest radio antenna that ALL cancer patients, all diabetics, AIDS and kidney patients, suffers of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson disease, autistic children, those who are about to be vaccinated and receive chemo and radiation therapy, or even get a CT or PET scan should be administered sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate or even magnesium bicarbonate. Magnesium bicarbonate is perfect because we are bringing magnesium in as an equal partner into everyone’s life. →
(NaturalHealth365) Long-term, low-level inflammation is at the root of so many degenerative health conditions currently affecting millions of people. These potentially life-threatening illnesses include heart disease, cancer (the number one and number two causes of death, respectively, in the United States), atherosclerosis, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis and over 100 different forms of autoimmune disorders. Studies likethis onefrom MD Anderson Cancer Center, show that the combination of two common nutrients – ginger and curcumin-rich turmeric – may hold the key to quenching chronic inflammation, and fighting the deadly conditions it can trigger. →
(NaturalHealth365)Rheumatoid arthritis is a joint-devastating autoimmune disease that affects as much as 1% of the world’s population – including over 1.3 million people in the U.S. alone. Conventionally speaking, Western medicine can only offer risky surgeries and toxic pharmaceutical “treatments.” But, there is a better way to go. Today, we’ll feature several (well-researched) natural remedies for rheumatoid arthritis – that can effectively immunomodulate your biochemistry, without the negative side effects of toxic drugs. →
(Natural News) There is a system within the human body that regulates pain and modulates the immune system. This little-known system of the body is a major gateway for regulating inflammation in the cells. This body system is often left out of human anatomy textbooks. This system is like a door that connects the nervous system with the immune system. This innate portal of healing is called the endocannibinoid system. The key to unlocking this door is found in cannibinoids, which are plant-based or endogenous compounds that bring down inflammation in the cells and communicate healing to the body.
(NaturalHealth365) The evidence is overwhelming, yet rarely addressed properly by Western medicine.Researchers have warned(for years!) that low vitamin D levels dramatically increase your risk of premature death from any cause – especially if your blood levels are lower than 30 mg/nl.
