Cross-talk between plant and animal cells may be accomplished via microRNA-carrying exosomes, gene-regulating elements contained in plants which reinforce that food is information and suggests an inextricable co-evolutionary relationship between these two disparate kingdoms
Social scientists and data analysts: Why not just ask parents who don’t vaccinate what they believe? Or read the vaccine damage claims?
What if everything we thought we knew about autoantibodies, which are pathologically elevated in autoimmune diseases, was wrong? Rather than a biomarker of deranged immunoregulation, novel research is uncovering that antibodies directed against self are an essential physiological phenomena, mandatory for homeodynamics.
The most alarming public health issue is the relentless increasing autism epidemic
Conventional allopathic medicine can no longer ignore that the body and mind are inextricably intertwined. Research reveals the mosaic of autoimmune diseases linked to stress and natural solutions to restore immune homeostasis
While there is no "magic pill" for thyroid disease, some factors may influence the effectiveness of your thyroid medication.
Two recent studies describe seven girls and young women who were severely debilitated by a disorder that includes extreme dizziness, intense fatigue, tachycardia, heart palpitations, chest pain, severe headaches and insomnia following HPV vaccination.
By now, I'm sure you've seen the USA Today article entitled, "Coconut oil isn't healthy. It's never been healthy". Fear-mongering, attention-grabbing headlines certainly sell copy, but do not make for evidence-informed, high quality science reporting.
Psoriasis is a serious skin condition affecting millions of people worldwide. Thanks to a recent study, turmeric, a spice prized by sufferers of chronic joint aches and pains, may become the go-to natural way to treat this irritating skin condition without risks posed by anti-inflammatory drugs
Rather than signifying an immune system gone haywire, pioneering research reveals that autoantibodies are a biological prerequisite, and that natural autoimmunity is the master orchestrator of physiological homeostasis.
With over a million Americans striken with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, what solutions can be given from research on anti-inflammatory diet, supplements and mind-body practices?
The past of our ancestors lives on through us: Groundbreaking research illustrates how parental experience is not only epigenetically imprinted onto offspring, but onto an unprecedented number of future generations. Rather than occurring over the elongated time scale of millions of years, genetic change can transpire in real biological time through nanoparticles known as exosomes
Iodine is a hot topic of debate in the thyroid conversation. Here are the facts behind the iodine/thyroid connection.
HPV vaccines are declared the world over as safe and effective, and yet research clearly shows their unintended adverse health effects could be causing severe and widespread harm in exposed populations.
At first glance, fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) appears to be a far-fetched procedure devised as a slapstick plot for a sit-com series. However, this innovative technique may revolutionize the future of medical treatments for a host of maladies including autoimmune and allergic diseases as well as autism spectrum disorder.
Tattooing is a long-standing human ritual that transcends historical and sociocultural boundaries, but more regulatory oversight is needed to ensure inks are not contaminated with dangerous chemical byproducts.
Poor air quality from industrial activities and the recent wildfires is a looming health risk for us all. Here are evidence-based strategies for removing toxic compounds from your body and mitigating the health risks of air pollution.
Thiamin may be the missing link to treating autoimmune disease and autonomic dysfunction. Although deficiencies in this vitamin have long been considered eradicated, case studies show supplementation with this nutrient improves fatigue in autoimmune patients in a matter of hours to days
A pilot study illuminates that high-dose vitamin D significantly improves lesions and depigmentation in psoriasis and vitiligo, respectively. Because Vitamin D deficiency is implicated in the pathophysiology of autoimmune responses, these findings may be applicable to other autoimmune disorders
Enzyme preparations are one of nature’s most powerful therapeutic agents - particularly, the proteolytic enzyme serrapeptase or the “silk worm” enzyme
Modified Citrus Pectin is an important adjunct for patients with cancer and other inflammatory diseases, with close to 40 published peer reviewed papers demonstrating remarkable success
Whereas conventional screenings for wheat allergies or celiac disease consider intolerance exceedingly rare, an accumulating body of clinical research now links wheat consumption with over 200 health problems. Could this be why millions of American consumers are now expressing their wholesale rejection of this "king of grains"?
California SB276, a bill that seeks to limit religious vaccine exemptions, is being supported 3 to 5 'in concept' despite the very real concerns of over 1000 parents and medical professionals
Are paleo recommendations to avoid grains and legumes due to anti-nutrient content predicated in science or founded in fear mongering? An evidence-based analysis of the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to lectins, phytates, and autoimmune disease
