Scurvy is a devastating disease caused by not enough vitamin C in your body. While it’s often associated with pirates and seafarers from long ago, the disease is making a comeback in the modern day, even in developed countries where, theoretically, scurvy should no longer exist
Can you call yourself a feminist If you don't support a woman's right to make healthcare decisions for her child?
In 2000, the CDC officially declared measles were eliminated. However, there are still measles outbreaks today. Is there a link to the measles outbreaks to the measles vaccinations, the lack of clean water, proper nutrition and good sanitation?
Of all the illnesses in industrial society, diabetes takes the greatest toll. Over 100,000 people die from complications of diabetes each year. Another million lose quality of life due to metabolic syndrome. Diabetes adds $135 billion to the annual cost of healthcare in the U.S.1 Yet diabetes remains avoidable, treatable, and reversible.
A growing body of concerning research indicates that conventional medicine's standard of care for type 2 diabetes, including synthetic insulin and oral anti-diabetic drugs, may actually increase morbidity and mortality. On the other hand, recently validated traditional approaches relying on plant-based medicines may greatly mitigate the global diabetes epidemic.
Are journalists being censored when they write about issues on vaccine safety and the devastating problems in our current American vaccine system?
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
Promoted for decades as a "safe" sugar alternative, presumably to prevent or reduce symptoms of diabetes, Splenda (sucralose) has been found to have diabetes-promoting effects in human subjects.
Many people following the autoimmune paleo (AIP) protocol witness objective measures of improvement, but now we have a bonafide clinical trial revealing its efficacy in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). These results may be applicable to all autoimmune disorders, since these conditions share common etiological origins
Billions are spent annually and still there is no conventional cure for diabetes. Or is there a cheap, safe and freely available solution already growing beneath our feet?
It may be shocking to learn that thirty percent of American babies are born via Cesarean delivery (CD). This statistic doesn’t mean that one-third of all pregnant women are having complications that lead them to require an emergency cesarean. Many women are opting to have an elective CD
A new study links wheat and gluten consumption to weight gain and type 1 diabetes, confirming an already extensive body of research already establishing this connection.
The excessive consumption of white rice can contribute to overweight, obesity and blood sugar disorders. Exciting research indicates adding coconut oil while cooking it can dramatically and positively alter its nutritional structure and function.
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?
A groundbreaking new study finds synthetic (GMO) insulin is capable of rapidly producing type 1 diabetes in type 2 diabetics.
Could long sought-after support for type 1 diabetes be as close as your kitchen cupboard? An accumulating body of scientific research appears to point in exactly that direction
A promising study published in the International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition reveals that the popular kitchen spice ginger may be an effective treatment for the prevention of diabetes and its complications
What if the long sought after "cure" for diabetes was as safe, affordable, and accessible as a spice sitting in your kitchen cupboard?
Cinnamon's medicinal potential is as rich and complex as its flavor and aroma, with blood sugar balancing and infection fighting top on the list.
The CDC stated a lack of biological plausibility for a 2.4x increased risk of autism in African American boys given the MMR vaccine, but there's plenty. How vaccines affect the infant microbiome is unknown.
Wheat has been known for some time to contribute to the pathogenesis of diabetes, but the mechanism has not been extensively investigated. New research indicates that the gut flora may provide a 'missing link' in understanding how wheat is capable of causing such great harm.
While geneticists apply vast amounts of time, energy and money to finding the "causes" of disease in our genes, much less attention is placed on research that has already demonstrated the triggers of autoimmunity such as infections, vaccines, pesticide and petroleum exposure (diesel fuel particles) and the consumption of foods like wheat, cow's dairy and soy (unfermented, GMO and/or excessive) are the major contributing factors in the development of type 1 diabetes.
The microbiota of the digestive system plays a fundamental role in the function of the human immune response. Researchers found that the use of antibiotics, long known to disrupt the gut microbiome and increase inflammation in the body, may impact the effectiveness of vaccinations such as the flu vaccine
Studies show that synthetic, genetically modified insulin could be to blame for a number of complications in diabetes patients.
