Some speculate that Lyme disease is an infection from the bacteria Continue reading

There is evidence in the archeological record that yoga has been practiced by humans for at least 5,000 years. Whereas this would constitute sufficient evidence for most folks to consider it a practice with real health benefits, as its millions of practitioners widely claim, skeptics say otherwise. They require any activity deemed to be of therapeutic value run the gauntlet of randomized, controlled clinical trials before it is fully accepted within the conventional medical system.

It is a little-known condition that can trigger persistent and debilitating symptoms similar to those associated with multiple sclerosis (MS) and fibromyalgia, but is also one that the medical profession at large is still unwilling to acknowledge. And yet emerging research continues to show that macrophagic my fasciitis, or MMF, is a very real condition brought about as a direct result of vaccines that contain aluminum adjuvants, which become lodged in muscle tissue and lead to severe neurological damage and other problems.
First identified in 1998, Continue reading

A new study published this month finds that the hormonally active form of vitamin D, Calcitriol 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3), inhibits the growth of many kinds of cancerous cells, including breast cancer, indicating that vitamin D3 can be useful in treating and even preventing a variety of cancers. Authors of the study said that cancer cell growth is inhibited by “anticancer actions including cell cycle arrest, promotion of apoptosis and inhibition of invasion, metastasis, and angiogenesis.” Continue reading
Pain is a symptom associated with just about every disease you can think of. There are different types of pain and different intensities of pain.

Recent studies conducted by Fushong Li of the Oregon Research Institute in Eugene, Oregon have determined that the ancient Chinese practice of tai chi can a positive impact on those afflicted with Parkinson’s disease (PD).
Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative neurological condition that usually afflicts people from age 50 and up. But younger cases do occur, the most famous being actor Michael J. Fox. PD affects around one million in the United States. As is the case with other neurological disorders, its rate is increasing. An estimated 60,000 new cases of PD are diagnosed annually.

saDid you know…there is a simple, non-surgical solution to treat sleep apnea and the many serious risks and health problems that go along with it?
“Apnea” is a Greek word that means “without breath”. Those with sleep apnea literally stop breathing during their sleep, up to 100 times each night, and for as long as 1 minute each time. The most common form of the condition—obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)—is typically caused by a collapse of the soft tissues at the back of the throat.
The most recent data from the National Institutes of Health states that more than 12 million Americans suffer from dangerous sleep apnea. Continue reading
