The Connection Between Glaucoma, Alzheimer's, and Diabetes

New research suggests it isn’t just Alzheimer’s that’s linked to diabetes and glaucoma. Less severe forms of dementia also could be a complication of diabetes. The eyes are so directly connected to the brain that many in the medical community believe they are an extension of the brain. The impact of diabetes on your eyes is now gaining even more attention. One group of researchers in India hypothesized that the eye disease glaucoma is actually diabetes of the brain.

Hydrogen Water: Drink to Better Health

Is the effect of drinking hydrogen water too good to be true? Dr. Whitaker thought so at first. But the deeper he delved into the hundreds of scientific papers examining the effects of hydrogen therapy, also called molecular hydrogen or H2 therapy, on scores of health challenges, the more he became convinced this is a true scientific breakthrough.

Curcumin/Turmeric for Brain and Pain

Turmeric does more than give curry its bright color. This herb has been a revered remedy in Ayurvedic medicine for millennia, and in the past 15 years, nearly 6,500 scientific papers have been published on the therapeutic properties of turmeric and curcumin, its most active constituent. It turns out that curcumin is an exceptionally potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant with benefits for a wide variety of health concerns including Alzheimer's, cancer, digestive disorders, and pain relief.

The Forbidden Fat You Should Be Eating

Dietary fats are greatly misunderstood. Most people don’t know which are healthful and which are harmful. Of all the fats, saturated fats may be among the most misunderstood of all.

In order to help patients with autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD/ADD, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, epilepsy and other so-called mental and neurological conditions, GAP Syndrome, we have to concentrate on treating the patient’s digestive system: we need to re-establish normal gut flora and heal and seal the damaged gut lining.

Inflammation-Aging Link Confirmed

Inflammation is vital to healing. The heat, tenderness, swelling and redness surrounding a wound show us that the body is marshaling its healing response. However, in many people, inflammation has escaped its local, temporary boundaries and is happening throughout the body, all the time.

Avoid the Metformin Bandwagon

What are the preferred natural alternatives to metformin? The botanical berberine stands out as the obvious number one alternative. Berberine is safer and equal to or superior to metformin. For example, for treatment of type-2 diabetes, insulin resistance and the high lipid levels resulting from insulin resistance, berberine is equal (in blood sugar and insulin resistance regulating effect) or superior (in lowering high lipids) to metformin. For heart disease Berberine has not been reported to cause low blood sugar, vitamin B12 or folate deficiency, raise homocysteine levels, or increase the risk of heart attacks.

Innovations in Nitric Oxide Diagnostics and Therapeutics

It is well-documented that the most prevalent cardiovascular, metabolic and cognitive disorders impacting healthcare are largely the result of the loss of available nitric oxide (NO) in the body. NO deficiency is the basis for endothelial dysfunction which underlies the development of these disorders that plague the population. Consequently, NO is considered the molecule that now offers the means for profoundly altering the disturbing trends in public health.

Colostrum: Nature's Perfect Food for Infants and Adults

Colostrum, the pre-milk substance that emerges from the mother's breast following the birth of a newborn, is nature's perfect first food. It is a mixture of immune and growth factors as well as important nutrients, all designed to activate newborn's immune system. Numerous studies show that colostrum and its components continue to exert important biological activities also when given to adults.
