Fibromyalgia, a condition characterized by chronic, body-wide pain, can be remedied with very simple dietary changes, and natural supportive remedies that have been clinically proven to have value.
If media, medical, and marketing brainwashing has you convinced there is such a thing as "bad" cholesterol, you've gotten the science all wrong.
With the cholesterol-lowering class of drugs known as statins being widely promoted for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease, despite their having over 300 documented adverse health effects (including heart failure!), how does chocolate sound as a viable, heart-friendly alternative?
Over 30 billion dollars worth of this drug is sold annually and yet it may be benefiting no one. In fact, there are over 300 adverse effects associated with its use, not the least of which is the weakening of the heart muscle. In order to cover-up the symptoms of statin-induced muscle damage new "diseases" have been coined, including polymyalgia rheumatica.
Research revealing the broad spectrum toxicity of statin drugs continues to accumulate unabated. Adding to a growing body of clinical evidence that they may cause over 300 adverse health effects, a new study reveals that these cholesterol-lowering drugs may be contributing to an epidemic of arthritis and autoimmunity in exposed populations, as well.
What if 90% of the peer-reviewed clinical research, the holy grail of the conventional medical system, is exaggerated, or worse, completely false? The very life's blood of 'evidence-based' medicine -- peer-reviewed and published clinical research results – which legitimizes the entire infrastructure and superstructure of conventional medical knowledge and practice is erected, has been revealed as mostly and patently false.
Following in the wake of new U.S. guidelines that will require 70 million Americans take statin drugs, new research finds they increase the risk of herpest zoster (shingles), adding to the over 300 adverse health effects linked to this drug class.
Statin drugs are already known to greatly increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, but newly published research now indicates they also accelerate cardiovascular complications associated with the disease, including coronary artery and aortic artery calcifications.
As we age our eyes gradually cloud over, with unchecked cataracts the leading cause of blindness. Here are 4 simple things you can do to make sure your eyes stay youthful late into life.
There is a growing awareness that the unintended, adverse health effects of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs far outweigh their purported benefits. But new research now indicates that these chemicals may even be interfering with the heart-protective effects of beneficial fatty acids in those who are on them.
How many times have you heard a meal of red meat, butter, eggs or other saturated fat-laden foods called "artery clogging" or "a recipe for a heart attack?" What if we have it all wrong and those fatty meals are actually protecting our hearts in the event of an attack?
Millions take these blockbuster drugs for 'heart protection,' and yet they are actually killing the well established heart protective properties of fish oil.
The neurotoxicity of statin drugs are back in the news. Following on the heels of the FDA decision earlier this year to require statin drugs manufacturers to add "memory loss" as a side effect of this chemical class, a new study in published in the Journal of Diabetes reveals a clear association between statin use and peripheral neuropathy in a US population 40 years of age and older.
Once again science has proven that the best health prescription is an apple a day. Researchers say eating one apple every day matches the heart benefits of modern statin drugs without the harmful side effects.
Statins are taken by millions of people worldwide, but most are unaware that their use has been linked to worsening eye health, along with over 300 adverse health effects.
Aged garlic shows promising effects on reducing elevated coronary calcium scores while also acting as a gut-friendly antimicorbial.
Under the current guidelines, statins are recommended for about 15 percent of adults. With the new guidelines 44 percent of men and 22 percent of women would meet the criteria for taking a statin. Is this good, evidence-based medicine or misguided?
So, you have been told to 'lower your cholesterol' with drugs. But could it be causing cancer?
We keep hearing about different types of cholesterol. It's all nonsense. There’s only one cholesterol molecule, so there’s only one type of cholesterol. What started this nonsense of types of cholesterol?
An estimated 40 million people take a statin to lower their cholesterol levels. These are one of the most widely prescribed medications in history and, of course, one of the most profitable.
A new study published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention indicates that women who are long-term users of statin drugs have between 83-143% increased risk of breast cancer.
There is a little known natural extract of plant waxes known as policosanol, extractable from sugar cane, yams, and beeswax, which has been giving some of the more profitable drugs on the market a biomedical beating since it was first investigated in clinical trials by the Cubans in the 1990's.
The benefits of grape seed extract in cancer are well documented, but modern medicine won't do anything with it until the mechanism of action has been found, so that it can be isolated, purified, made poisonous and owned by a single company for enormous profits.
$80 million dollars raised, and yet none of it will likely go to the proven natural interventions that could alleviate the suffering of those with ALS.
