Breathwork Helps Tame Stress, Benefits Your Mind and Body

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Controlled breathing helps lower your heart rate and blood pressure, improves your immune system, lowers stress hormone levels and balances carbon dioxide and oxygen blood levels
  • Most people are shallow breathers, with most of the effort coming from the upper chest, but deep, abdominal breathing activates the parasympathetic system, helping to calm and relax your mind and body
  • Carbon dioxide (CO2) helps utilize oxygen, so raising CO2 tolerance helps improve your health. A practical exercise developed by Dr. K. Buteyko can be done in minutes a day to improve your CO2 tolerance
  • Belisa Vranich, psychologist and author, calls breathing exercises “massively practical.” Consider doing them for a few minutes each day, including Box breathing, coherent breathing or relaxing 4-7-8 exercises

The Truth About COVID-19 ‘Long-Haulers’

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • 18.1% of individuals diagnosed with COVID-19 also received a first-time psychiatric diagnosis in the 14 to 90 days afterward. Most common were anxiety disorders, insomnia and dementia
  • An estimated 10% of patients treated for COVID-19 report fatigue, breathlessness, brain fog and/or chronic pain for three weeks or longer. This phenomenon occurs even among patients who had mild cases of COVID-19
  • U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data show the rate of COVID-19 patients who continue experiencing lingering health problems after recovering from acute COVID-19 may be as high as 45%
  • Many post-acute COVID-19 patients fit the diagnostic criteria for ME/CFS, which has been linked to viral infections
  • According to a COVID-19 treatment guide, many of these “long COVID” patients do spontaneously recover — albeit slowly — with holistic support, rest, symptomatic treatment and gradual increase in activity

This Is the Primary Benefit of Niacin (B3)

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Niacin plays an important role in photoprotection from the effect of UV radiation on DNA damage and oxidative stress and helps guard against the rising prevalence of skin cancer
  • Some research has also found long-term benefits from taking niacin that lower your risk of all-cause mortality
  • B vitamins help support your immune system. B3 is a precursor to NAD and may help prevent some of the worst COVID-19 outcomes from cytokine and bradykinin storms
  • Seek to get your B3 from food; high dose supplements may trigger a niacin flush in which your skin will get red and tingle. Although it is irritating, it is harmless

How COVID-19 Vaccine Can Destroy Your Immune System

Visitors:1 | Today\\\\\'s Visitors: 0 | Total Visitors This week: 1219

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • According to a study that examined how informed consent is given to COVID-19 vaccine trial participants, disclosure forms fail to inform volunteers that the vaccine might make them susceptible to more severe disease if they’re exposed to the virus
  • Previous coronavirus vaccine efforts — including those for SARS, MERS and RSV — have revealed a serious concern: The vaccines have a tendency to trigger antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE)
  • ADE means that rather than enhance your immunity against the infection, the vaccine actually enhances the virus’ ability to enter and infect your cells, resulting in more severe disease than had you not been vaccinated
  • Lethal Th2 immunopathology is another potential risk. A faulty T cell response can trigger allergic inflammation, and poorly functional antibodies that form immune complexes can activate the complement system, resulting in airway damage
  • There’s evidence showing the elderly — who are most vulnerable to severe COVID-19 and would need the vaccine the most — are also the most vulnerable to ADE and Th2 immunopathology

Hypertension Alert

If you are anything like me, you better be checking your blood pressure. Mine blew sky high this morning, and lucky for me, I live in a natural hospital, so I received treatments right away. Stress is going off the Richtor Scale for millions, but my wife said, probably it is more like billions.

NAC’s Crucial Role in Preventing and Treating COVID-19

Visitors:2 | Today\\\\\'s Visitors: 0 | Total Visitors This week: 1219

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is a precursor to reduced glutathione, which appears to play a crucial role in COVID-19. There’s evidence glutathione deficiency may worsen COVID-19 severity
  • Patients with glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency are more prone to COVID-19 as it depletes glutathione. Some of these patients are also at increased risk of hemolytic anemia when given the COVID-19 drug hydroxychloroquine
  • High-dose intravenous NAC may address the chain of events leading to red blood cell hemolysis in these patients, allowing them to recover from severe COVID-19
  • NAC also inhibits expression of proinflammatory cytokines, improves T cell response, benefits a variety of lung problems, and inhibits the hypercoagulation that can result in stroke and/or blood clots that impair the ability to exchange oxygen in the lungs
  • As the benefits of NAC against COVID-19 are starting to become known, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is suddenly cracking down on NAC, claiming it is excluded from the definition of a dietary supplement

Located on the inner wrist, Pericardium-6 (PC-6), or Neiguan (meaning “inner pass), is one of my favorite acupuncture points because it has so many amazing uses. PC-6 is THE go-to acupuncture point for treating nausea, vomiting, and any disorders involving the heart and chest. This acupressure point has gained popularity specifically for its ability to improve morning sickness, seasickness, motion sickness, post-surgical and chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. In fact, PC-6 has become such a popular point in acupressure that there are bands made specifically to apply pressure to this point, hands-free! Continue reading
