Why Vegetarians Have Reduced Risk of Cataracts

For most of us, diminished eyesight is an unfortunate part of aging. The eyes require a little more TLC after the age of 40. So how far would you go to protect your eyesight?

Researchers at the University of Oxford in the U.K. are suggesting that being vegetarian could significantly lower your risk for getting cataracts.

This latest health news comes on the heels of other studies that have hinted that, as far as the eyes are concerned, eating a diet of beans, tofu and other vegetarian fare is the best way to preserve clear vision. The British researchers built on this mounting evidence and investigated the association between diet and cataract risk in a population that has a wide range of diets Continue reading

Six Best Natural Pain Relievers

Here’s something positive on the health news front. Researchers at the Pain Research Center at the University of Utah have discovered that music could help reduce pain symptoms. Music, it seems, really can create a distraction that diverts our mind from focusing on pain.

For their study, the U.S. researchers recruited 153 healthy, normal volunteers. These volunteers participated in a test session in which pain responses were measured while listening to music. The researchers found that music reduced pain responses in the volunteers, but with a caveat: personality factors like anxiety and the ability to become absorbed in music increased the pain-reducing effect. In other words, music listening can reduce your responses to pain, depending on your personality. The researchers have this health advice: doctors should consider patients’ personality characteristics Continue reading

Exciting New Alzheimer’s Treatment

Did you know…that an exciting new natural Alzheimer’s treatment is also one of the best remedies against Candida, the most widespread cause of ill health?

Caprylic acid (a medium-chain triglyceride) is an anti-fungal agent found naturally in coconuts.  It’s also the active ingredient in a new medical food validated by scientific research as an effective treatment for Alzheimer’s.  The medical food is being marketed under the name Axona.

Caprylic acid works by providing the brain with an alternate source of energy.  Healthy brains use glucose as their main source of cellular energy.  But imaging studies show that brains affected by Alzheimer’s use less glucose.  If brain cells affected by Alzheimer’s could be powered in some other way, symptoms of dementia could be eradicated.

The substances produced by caprylic acid in the body–known as ketones–can provide that essential alternative source of energy.

Candida: The Fungus You May Not Know You Have

Caprylic acid’s potential against Alzheimer’s is highly promising.  Yet, its amazing effects for Candida detoxification are equally extraordinary.  For more than 40 years scientists have known about the power of caprylic acid for treating Candida symptoms. Continue reading
