This is a public health warning to the US population and elsewhere, as it appears that our public health agencies and television medical experts seem unable to address key health messages that could have a dramatic effect in reducing risk of severe sequelae in higher-risk populations such as the minority and African-American population to the scourge of SARS-CoV-2. This is now clear. They have squandered many an opportunity to inform the public on simple yet very effective messaging that could reduce morbidity and save lives. Not just for Covid-19, but our focus here is on Covid-19. Continue reading →
In the beginning, the earth was blessed with rich, fertile soil and lush vegetation. The soil was teaming with microbes — bacteria, fungi, and protozoa, to name a few. In the perfect cycle of life, microbes in the soil break down dead plant material and create substances and nutrients that nourish plants. When humans eat these plants, we enjoy the nutrients that they provideContinue reading →
I’ve treated many cases of cancer going against the standard slash, burn, and cut mantra of the medical establishment.
And I’ve seen some great success. But no injection therapy I’ve ever used took my breath away for its ease of use and effectiveness. That is until I saw the treatment I’m going to tell you about this month! Continue reading →
Abnormalities in your immune system—such as allergies and autoimmune diseases—are a common outcome of Gut and Physiology Syndrome (GAPS), as about 85 percent of your immune system is located in your gut wall
Considering the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in the U.S. and abroad, researchers and nutritionists have been working on ways to increase consumption of the vital nutrient. A study that was published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry suggests that one solution may lie in fungi exposed to ultraviolet light. Continue reading →
A healthy immune system defends you against invading pathogens and keeps you cancer-free, pain-free, free of autoimmune diseases and sheltered against chronic illness of many types. Protecting your immune system helps your immune system protect your body and provides optimal health.
Your Immune System At Work
Your immune system occupies your skin, blood, tissues and the linings of your intestinal tract, nose and mouth. Consisting of an array of specialized cells that detect unnatural molecules entering your body, it patrols your entire body. Immune cells are like scouts in an army who communicate with troops waiting behind Continue reading →
Higher glucose levels in people with diabetes can form a sugar coating smothering the mechanisms the body used to fight infections, a British researcher says.
Dr. Daniel Mitchell of the University of Warwick’s Medical School in England and colleagues found glucose in the blood is similar in structure to two sugars — mannose and fucose — found on bacteria and fungi that signal the body infection need to be combated.
However, high levels of glucose can interfere with the binding of mannose and fucose by the specialized immune receptors and can inhibit these infection-fighting chemical processes. This interference may lead to chronic inflammatory disease and increased cardiovascular and kidney disease risks.
The study, published in the journal Immunobiology, finds the specialized receptors that recognize bacteria and fungi associated molecules can become “blinded” by unhealthy glucose levels and suggests this may help explain why diabetic complications often include increased risk of viral infections such as influenza.
“Our findings offer a new perspective on how high glucose can potentially affect immunity and thus exert a negative impact on health,” Mitchell says in a statement. “It also helps to emphasize the importance of good diet on preventing or controlling diseases such as diabetes.”
