STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Box breathing is a form of breath control that triggers the parasympathetic nervous system to help manage stress and improve relaxation so you can take control of your health
  • This technique, also called square breathing or four-square breathing, is used by Navy SEALS to help reduce stress in high-pressure situations
  • It involves nose breathing to slow over-breathing and raise CO2 levels to balance oxygenation. Use a simple technique to measure your CO2 tolerance, a predictor of physical health
  • Nose breathing raises production of nitric oxide, which offers antiviral benefits. Consider the four-minute Nitric Oxide Dump to promote blood flow and normalize blood pressure

According to the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study (GBD) published in 2019, neurodegenerative diseases, which affect the structure and function of the central nervous system (CNS), are the largest cause of disability globally. Parkinson’s disease, the most common of these diseases next to Alzheimer’s, is a progressive movement disorder that remains without a cure.

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Blood flow restriction (BFR) training was developed in Japan by Dr. Yoshiaki Sato in 1966. There, it’s known as KAATSU, which translates into “additional pressure”
  • KAATSU, known more generically as Blood Flow Modification, was introduced outside of Japan by Steven Munatones after a 13-year-long mentorship by Sato
  • Aside from dramatically improving muscle tone, BFR is also a wonderful tool for post-surgical rehabilitation, allowing you to regain physical function in a fraction of the time that you would normally anticipate
  • KAATSU is very safe, even for those with cardiovascular issues, and can also benefit those who are bedridden or paraplegic
  • The original KAATSU device became commercially available in 2006 and was quite large, heavy and bulky, with a $16,600 price tag. Since then, the technology has improved, gotten much smaller and is far less expensive

  • Spending time in the woods, called forest bathing, may boost your ability to fight viruses and infections
  • Data revealed the same effects are not experienced by being outdoors in an urban environment; diffusing cypress stem oil indoors produced similar but weaker results
  • Spending time in green spaces has additional benefits, including blood pressure reduction, cortisol secretion and lowering the incidence of diabetes
  • Other healthy habits that support your immune health include taking care of your gut microbiome, exercising, getting quality sleep and maintaining adequate vitamin D levels

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Thiamine (vitamin B1) deficiency syndrome (beriberi) has many similarities to sepsis — a primary cause of COVID-19 mortality — and thiamine deficiency is relatively common in critically ill patients in general
  • Thiamine deficiency is prevalent in pulmonary tuberculosis, and the more severe the case, the more severe the thiamine deficiency. Thiamine has been shown to limit Mycobacterium tuberculosis by regulating your innate immunity
  • Thiamine deficiency is also associated with the development of high fever, and some researchers have suggested that serious infections may in fact be a presenting manifestation of thiamine deficiency
  • Clinical case reports have shown thiamine injections reversed a number of acute illnesses in which high fever was a factor, including one case where the patient presented with high fever, headache and asphyxia, and another where the patient had high fever and severe pneumonia
  • Thiamine is required for metabolism of some of the metabolites of vitamin C. Vitamin C also works synergistically with corticosteroids, which helps explain why the Marik Sepsis Protocol is so effective. Magnesium may also be important, as it is required for the activation of thiamine

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • One of the most common reasons for a sore throat is a viral infection; before picking up an over-the-counter drug, consider these effective and natural options
  • Zinc lozenges work locally in your upper respiratory tract to shorten a cold; hydrogen peroxide in the ear canal has been ignored, but is effective
  • An apple cider vinegar gargle helps create an inhospitable environment for germs; garlic may shorten the length and severity of your cold and raw honey is as effective as cough drops or syrup
  • Vitamin C may shorten your cold; echinacea tea soothes your throat and reduces the recurrence of an infection; bee propolis extract may reduce the duration of a cold, and gargling with saltwater is soothing
  • Preventive measures include getting plenty of exercise and quality sleep; using good handwashing techniques; eating fermented foods and taking in optimal levels of vitamin D

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Microorganisms in your gastrointestinal tract play an integral part in your health, affecting everything from body weight and nutrition, to chronic diseases of all kinds
  • The groundwork for your individual microbiome is laid from birth. A baby inherits the microbiome of its mother during vaginal delivery. Skin-to-skin contact and breastfeeding also provide valuable microbes
  • Thorough and appropriate “seeding” of the baby at birth primes their immune system with beneficial bacteria so that it can learn to function optimally
  • Decades of inappropriate medical interventions and diet — such as overuse of antibiotics and antibacterial products, routine cesarean births, pesticides and processed food — have led to a steep loss of diversity in the human microbiome
  • Bacteria play an essential role in your metabolism and immune function. With a loss of microbial diversity, the homeostasis (balance) of your body is disrupted, rendering it more vulnerable to disease
