There are good reasons for Tai Chi’s exploding popularity—its list of evidence-based health benefits is so long that many are calling this walking meditation, “walking medication” Continue reading
Researchers uncovered a direct link between the brain and the immune system, via lymphatic vessels that were not previously known to exist
The vessels may play a major role in neurological diseases that have an immune component Continue reading
There is plenty of research that indicates that the unnaturally accelerated aging process associated with modern living and/or natural environmental exposures such as excessive ultraviolet radiation (photo-aging) can be slowed. In fact, over 150 natural substances have been indexed on aging in the GreenMedInfo.com project with Continue reading
In the early 1960s, a young postdoctoral student stumbled onto something that puzzled him.
After reading the literature on cannabis, he was surprised to see that while the active compound in morphine had been isolated from opium poppies 100 years before and cocaine isolatedfrom coca leaves around the same time, the active component of marijuana was still unknown. Continue reading
Did you know that we are exposed to 82,000 different toxins, chemically-based products and processed foods in our environment weekly? Continue reading

Among thoughtful and informed medical providers and public alike, there is an ongoing transition toward recognizing adverse health effects from grains as being common and normal rather than rare and abnormal. Not all medical providers, of course, support this Continue reading
Over a period of two months, eight infants in China died within hours, and in some cases minutes, of receiving hepatitis B vaccines
Nine other deaths among Chinese children aged 5 and Continue reading
An eye-opening new study published in the Journal of Viral Hepatitis reveals that conventional hepatitis B vaccine- and hepatitis B immunoglobulin-based treatment for infants of mothers who tested positive for hepatitis B infection is nothing near “95% effective in preventing infection and its chronic consequences” that the World Health Organization (WHO) and a myriad of health organizations around the world claim it to be. [i] To the contrary, Continue reading
You don’t need to hear about more high-salt diets causing weight gain, heart problems, and diabetes. You get it all the time. But there’s something you might not know: it can also make you more susceptible to autoimmune diseases, like multiple sclerosis, by impacting your body’s ability to fight infection. Continue reading
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory disease in which the myelin sheath on the nerve endings gets inflamed and damaged. This leads to scarring of the neurological tissue in the brain and spinal cord. While the medical model has very little support, many individuals have found ways to beat multiple sclerosis with natural lifestyle strategies.
MS is a condition Continue reading
A buildup of sodium in the brain detected by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may be a biomarker for the degeneration of nerve cells that occurs in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), according to a new study published online in the journal Radiology.
The study found that patients with early-stage MS showed Continue reading
Today, in my last look at multiple sclerosis (MS), I’ll reveal a wide swath of natural possibilities for treatment and prevention. These 10 potential remedies range from healthy fats to calcium to ginkgo.
1. Essential fats. Some experts believe that fatty acids, such as sunflower seed, evening primrose, and fish oils, Continue reading
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
saDid you know…there is a simple, non-surgical solution to treat sleep apnea and the many serious risks and health problems that go along with it?
“Apnea” is a Greek word that means “without breath”. Those with sleep apnea literally stop breathing during their sleep, up to 100 times each night, and for as long as 1 minute each time. The most common form of the condition—obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)—is typically caused by a collapse of the soft tissues at the back of the throat.
The most recent data from the National Institutes of Health states that more than 12 million Americans suffer from dangerous sleep apnea. Continue reading
Did You Know…that dozens of everyday “health” foods containing brain-damaging poisons, which seriously threaten your health—and such foods are not regulated by the FDA or other government agencies?
“Your food can be a killer—and I don’t mean just the junk food”, says Dr. David Blyweiss. That’s because processed foods—even so-called healthy foods—contain additives known as “excitotoxins” that cause serious neurodegenerative damage like Parkinson’s disease…Alzheimer’s…dementia…Lou Gehrig’s…multiple sclerosis…lupus…and more.
“The main culprits are the additives monosodium glutamate (MSG) and aspartate (a component of NutraSweet) that lace our foods to enhance their taste,” says Dr. Blyweiss. Excitotoxins have been used for decades to pump up the flavor of processed foods like soups, snacks, sauces, gravies, and also many low-fat and vegetarian “health” foods. Continue reading
