For those with multiple sclerosis (MS), life is definitely a challenge. This disease attacks your brain and spinal cord. And while doctors have come a long way in understanding MS, there is no treatment that can make it disappear.
At best, MS patients try to manage their symptoms and reduce their severity and/or frequency. In recent health news, researchers from the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago think they have uncovered another way to fend off a particularly troublesome symptom of MS: brain lesions.

We face an epidemic of autoimmune diseases, medical conditions that cause the body to attack itself and destroy its own tissues. Everyone who lives in today’s polluted world — exposed to toxins at home, outside and just about everywhere in the environment — is at risk. But you can take natural steps to regulate your immune system and help it ward off disease, not cause it.
While your body is designed to defend against a host of environmental invaders, it cannot completely withstand the adverse effects of poor diet, chronic stress and toxic buildup. These common factors can contribute to a group of serious health problems of epidemic proportions, including autoimmune (AI) disease, which is on the rise.
AI diseases comprise more than 100 unique types, including lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Continue reading
The condition known as lymphedema is caused by the accumulation of fluid in the body’s interstitial tissues which surround the lymph glands. It occurs when lymph nodes are missing, removed or damaged – making it impossible for the lymphatic system to remove excess lymphatic fluid through the lymph vessels. Left untreated, lymphedema can cause serious complications including infection and interference with wound healing. However, there are natural lifestyle changes and remedies which can often offer substantial relief.
There are two types of lymphedema. The first, primary lymphedema, is caused by the absence of lymph nodes or abnormalities in the lymphatic system at birth. Secondary lymphedema is caused by removal of lymph nodes during surgery, radiation treatments, infection, malignancy, or build up of scar tissue. Continue reading
