Given the growing body of scientific support on its health benefits, sesame would be just as at home in a medicine cabinet as it would be a kitchen cupboard
Hippocrates - the father of medicine - said, "Let your food be your medicine, and let your medicine be your food." Medicines are a subset of foods, according to Hippocrates. I like that. What are medicines today? What are foods?
Fresh fetal tissue is "absolutely essential" for new vaccine research and development, scientist tells congressional hearing
Investigating the alarming rise of chronic inflammatory diseases.
The opioid-related death rate is growing in the U.S., and health officials surmise that cannabis may reduce the necessity of opioid prescriptions
Hesperidin, a polyphenolic compound extracted from citrus fruits and known for its anti-inflammatory properties, may have beneficial effects in the prevention of cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. Further study indicates that hesperidin may prevent varicose vein formation and be useful in the treatment of hemorrhoids and diabetes, yet many have yet to hear about this powerful flavonoid
Many times there are extremely positive preliminary results with a natural product improving very serious health condition and there are no follow up studies. In 2005, a clinical trial indicated that a common dietary supplement can produce meaningful improvements in multiple sclerosis. Since this initial study there has been considerable additional studies that also demonstrate dietary supplementation with this compound is capable of making a positive clinical impact
Research has concluded that a healthy diet rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory natural substances can increase longevity and improve the aging process
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?
A plant native to the Amazonian jungles has been used by the native population for generations untold for physical, spiritual and emotional health. Now, the science proves its efficacy
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.
Sufferers of chronic pain have been faced with a perilous decision—risk a crippling addiction to opioids or find a way to live with the pain. A clinical study has focused on medical cannabis as an alternative to opioids, and the results may be a turning point towards a safe, plant-based option for easing pain
Our scientific dogma says that the latest research is the closest to the truth; yet as soon as new research comes out, it will be obsolete. This paradigm always ignores context. For example, for the past 15 years it has become assumed truth that a low fat diet is a healthy diet. The same people who thirty years ago used to urge us to eat plenty of meat and cheese, shifted to encourage us towards vegetables and low fat salad dressings
Novel research reveals that blocking exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) produces significant symptom changes in 90% of patients with autoimmune disease. No longer can it be ignored that manmade electromagnetic radiation poses innumerable risks to human health
AutismOne, Focus Autism and a diverse group of speakers will present important, up-to-date research and information on autism through innovative sessions "fighting the good fight to keep you and your family healthy."
Science shows electromagnetic fields are unavoidably harmful to human health, causing bioeffects and derailing the immune system at levels deemed within safe exposure effects
What if vaccines have never been soundly confirmed to be safe and effective? What if the CDC, vaccine manufacturers and advocates knew of these discrepancies and contradictions, yet intentionally ignored them against the public interests?
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
