Subject: Boswellia Reduces 5-LOX Activity

Do you tend to suffer from allergic reactions and inflammatory diseases which come as a result of chemicals which are naturally secreted inside the nucleus of the body cells? Well, certain chemicals, such as 5-lipoxygenase is such a reagent inside the Blood and it can lead to things such as inflammation in the leukotrienes and other cancer-promoting conditions of the human body. This can even lead to other kinds of discomforts such as joint pains and aches, lung infections and infections of the intestinal tract. As such, it is very important that its activity as well as the impact on the person is reduced. Luckily, there is a solution for that and this comes in the form of Boswellia.

Acting to counteract the effects of 5-LOX, Boswellia otherwise known as Indian frankincense has got a powerful impact on the said chemical which is responsible for the allergic reactions and inflammation of the body cells in the first place. As a result, these reactions are reduced thus promoting a healthy state of being. It is said to be the best natural fighter against the killer cancer and since it comes in an easy to assimilate form, it can get into the body system quickly thus acting to fight reactions just in the nick of time. 

It is truly important to live a healthy life which is free from all kinds of infections and allergies which can develop into further complications for the person. When you have a powerful drug to help with fighting such reactions within your body, you will notice that your body becomes progressively powerful and thus makes you able to withstand certain elements whose imbalances in the body might lead to inflammation. With Boswellia, you are able to become stronger against diseases naturally and you will also observe a gradual progression to a healthier, happier, more wholesome individual.

Why Americans remain vulnerable to infectious diseases

Subject: Why Americans remain vulnerable to infectious diseases





There is uncertainty in the impact of vector-borne diseases in the US. The effect of changing climate may alter which geographic areas are at risk from vector-transmitted infections. Drug resistance is a growing problem and requires urgent action to tackle it. Antibiotics are a key weapon in the battle against bacterial infections, but we must use those tools carefully to make sure they stay effective.

Key Takeaways:

  • Pseudomonas bacteria can be deadly for patients who are in critical care. According to CDC it's the cause of about 51,000 healthcare-associated infections in the United States each year.
  • The bacteria Escherichia coli (E. coli) naturally occurs in your gut, and while most strains are harmless, some can cause severe foodborne diseases, with symptoms ranging from fever, nausea and vomiting to Bloody diarrhea.
  • Tuberculosis almost disappeared in the majority of the Western world as countries developed.

"By analyzing trends in US mortality between 1980 and 2014, scientists found that infections were responsible for 5.4% of all deaths, with the majority caused by influenza and pneumonia."

Early signs of liver damage that everyone should know

Subject: Early signs of liver damage that everyone should know





Our livers clean our Blood of impurities and toxins, while asisting our bodies with fighting off infections. The liver has the ability to repar itself by regenerating damaged tissues. But when the liver suffers irrepairable damage like cancer, inflammation or scarring, our bodies react by producing outwardly signs. First, your stools will lighten and your urine will become more yellow, as well as your skin and eyes. Also, you may begin to feel itchy and you may bruise or bleed more easily. Additionally, your body will retain excess water, causing your body to swell.

Key Takeaways:

  • When your liver isn't working properly, your skin and the whites of your eyes can become discolored, turning a milky yellow due to the accumulation of a yellowish substance called bilirubin.
  • One of the signs of early liver damage is systemic itching. Your itching may be limited to a certain region, such as your arms or legs, or it may be occurring all over your body.
  • Folks with damaged livers will tend to bruise and/or bleed much more easily because the organ has slowed or ceased production of proteins that are vital to Blood clotting.

"Despite the fact that the liver is inside the body, a poorly-functioning organ produces some outwardly visible signs that should always be heeded."

Subject: Heart Disease and Poor Gut Health Go Hand In Hand





A new mechanism has been discovered that connects phosphatidyl choline (also called lecithin), a common dietary fat, along with intestinal microflora, to an increased risk of heart disease. The study shows that the heart risk of people with a diet high in the lipid depends on how the micro-organisms that live in their digestive tracts metabolize it. When lecithin and choline were fed to mice, the substances were converted to a heart disease-forming product by the intestinal microbes. In humans, higher Blood levels of choline and the heart disease forming microorganism products are strongly associated with increased cardiovascular disease risk.

In the Middle Ages, there was a practice called “the doctrine of signatures.” The idea was that food items that looked like certain body organs would help those organs. While there is no science behind this, there are certain foods that follow this pattern. Some such foods are walnuts, tomatoes, ginger, and celery, which help your brain, heart, stomach, and bones, respectively.

Subject: Can Protein, Probiotics Help With Blood Sugar Control?





A recent study to determine the effect protein and probiotics can have on Blood sugar has shown promising results. By having patients consume a protein-rich diet or add probiotics to an already healthy diet, researchers were able to see their Blood sugar levels decrease. The protein is believed to slow down the metabolism of carbohydrates and prevent Blood sugar from spiking, while probiotics supposedly allow the cells in the body to utilize insulin more effectively to combat glucose surges. More research needs to be done, but these findings may help diabetics control their condition more effectively.

Key Takeaways:

  • Both proteins and probiotics appear to slow down digestion of carbohydrates, preventing Blood sugar spikes that can lead to type 2 diabetes or exacerbate damage done by the disease, researchers found.
  • Protein slowed the release of sugars into the Bloodstream, but Meng and her colleagues were surprised to find no similar effect from the fats in butter or the fiber in the oat cereal.
  • r to produce compounds that may make it easier for cells to use the hormone insulin to convert Blood sugar into energy, Pandey said.

Subject: Reducing salt intake may help protect kidney patients’ heart and kidney health





Chronic kidney disease is a serious condition. One of the most detrimental effects of the disease is albuminuria. In most patients, this effect can be controlled by kidney medications. In some, however, albuminuria cannot be reduced. A recent study in which 45 patients were asked to reduce their sodium intake, take paricalcitrol, or both showed promising results in significantly reducing albuminuria. Reducing salt intake alone helped, but combining both salt reduction and paricalcitrol provided the best results.

Key Takeaways:

  • New research indicates that reducing sodium intake may provide kidney and heart benefits for patients with chronic kidney disease.
  • Investigators found that dietary sodium restriction led to a significant reduction of residual albuminuria and Blood pressure.
  • Even a moderate reduction in sodium intake may provide serious health benefits.

"The investigators found that dietary sodium restriction led to a significant reduction of residual albuminuria and Blood pressure, whereas paricalcitol had no significant effect on these measures. The combination of paricalcitol and a low sodium diet, however, resulted in the lowest albuminuria levels."

You probably know that calcium is good for you. But in reality, you’re probably murky on the details as to why it’s so important, and like many people, you may not be getting enough calcium in your diet. Bones provide a mineral reservoir to buffer the Blood levels of calcium, to keep it in a narrow range, for optimal neural and muscular function. Muscle contraction is initiated by calcium binding to signal the action.

Key Takeaways:

  • Calcium is a hard, silvery metallic element with an atomic number of 20 and an atomic weight of 40.078.
  • Calcium regulation is controlled by parathyroid hormone, vitamin D and calcitonin, and affected by magnesium and phosphorus level.
  • The U.S. National Institute of Health reported that a great majority of people are not consuming the Recommended Daily Allowance of calcium.

Moderate alcohol consumption can reduce heart disease risk by up to 25%, and this is likely due, at least in part, to alcohol’s positive effects on HDL “good” cholesterol levels. In a review of 84 studies, people who drank one or fewer alcoholic drinks a day were 14% to 25% less likely to develop heart disease compared to their tee totaling counterparts.

Key Takeaways:

  • Explaining how alcohol can actually help your heart.
  • Shows which kinds of alcohol have the best cardiovascular benefits.
  • Explaining how a glass of wine a day is a great thing.

"Dangers of drinking too much include alcoholism, high Blood pressure, obesity, stroke, breast cancer, suicide and accidents. So it is important to be careful about how much alcohol you consume."

Subject: Huge study finds a billion people suffer from high Blood pressure





High Blood pressure, or hypertension, is the leading cause of cardiovascular disease due to strain being put on the Blood vessels and major organs of the body. Forty years ago, the main population to have the condition was the rich. These days, the poor make up a majority of the population with hypertension. This is believed to mainly be due to poor diet. It is estimated that just over 1.1 billion people today have the condition, which is double that of 40 years ago.

Key Takeaways:

  • The number of people with high Blood pressure has almost doubled in 40 years to over 1.1 billion worldwide, scientists said on Wednesday.
  • The increases are especially significant in Africa and South Asia, the researchers said, and could be partly due to poor nutrition in childhood.
  • The condition is caused by a number of factors including having a diet high in salt and low in fruit and vegetables, and not taking enough exercise.

Subject: Gene-editing techniques used in humans for first time





China has become the first country to genetically modify genes and insert them back into a human body. The test patient is suffering from aggressive lung cancer. They were able to extract genes that they believe will effectively attack the cancer if they are in high enough numbers. No final results have been released on the study, but it is a huge milestone in the research field. China is not the only country working on the technology, and the first to complete it would be looking at huge profits.

Key Takeaways:

  • The technique knocks out a gene that normally acts as a check on the cell's ability to launch an immune response and prevents it from attacking healthy cells.
  • The modified cells were then multiplied and re-introduced into the patients' Bloodstream where, it is hoped, they will home in on the cancer and wipe it out.
  • He said information on the results and findings of the study would be released when they are ready.

Whenever you feel that your liver is not working properly, you need to consult the doctor immediately to avoid any further complication. An early diagnosis can make the treatment easy and helpful.

Do you want to know about the signs of liver damage? When your liver does not work properly, you might notice some physical changes in your body and some discomfort in different areas of your body. 


Common Signs of Liver Damage

Nausea. Nausea is one of the first signs of liver damage. You might feel like vomiting. It can be short-lived and you can also experience it for a long time. If you leave it untreated, it will be debilitating after a period of time.

Abdominal Swelling. A damaged liver can cause an imbalance of protein and other helpful compounds that will ultimately head to abdominal swelling and water build ups in different parts of the body. The water buildup in the tissues can cause swelling in your feet, hands, and ankles as well. 

Fatigue. Another sign is fatigue and tiredness. You will not only feel exhausted and tired mentally, it will also affect your brain. You will feel tired both physically and mentally throughout the day. 

Jaundice. Jaundice is one of the signs of the liver damage. If you find yellow skin, yellow eyes, and yellow nails then it is important to see your doctor soon to protect your liver from the permanent damage. Always remember that Jaundice can be fatal.

Subject: Why the Blood-Brain Barrier Is So Critical (and How to Maintain It)





It’s imperative to maintain a health Blood-brain barrier. This serves as a guard for our brains letting in important things like glucose, amino acids, nutrients, and ketones while warding off toxins and pathogens. Ways to promote BBB health include taking vitamin B, drinking tea/coffee for caffeine, eating prebiotic fiber, upping magnesium intake, and sleep, just to name a few.

Key Takeaways:

  • The job of the gut lining is to be selectively permeable, allowing helpful things passage into the body and preventing harmful things from getting in.
  • A similarly dynamic barrier lies between the brain and the rest of the body: the Blood-brain barrier.
  • Some pathogens even wield chemical weaponry that blasts open the Blood-brain barrier, giving them—and anything else in the vicinity—access to the brain.

Support Healthy Circulation and Arterial Function with Benfotiamine!

Subject: Support Healthy Circulation and Arterial Function with Benfotiamine!

Benfotiamine is a derivative nutrient of thiamine (vitamin B1). Usually, many people suffering from peripheral neuropathy lack this crucial nutrient. Thiamine, Vitamin B1, is highly required for the nervous system to keep functioning properly. Maintaining adequate levels of Thiamine through diet alone is hard. Benfotiamine works to nourish the nerves and reverse the effects of peripheral neuropathy. It helps to support Blood circulation, enhance arterial function and healthy Blood vessels.

Increases Blood circulation and vessel health

Benfotiamine helps to increase the rate of Blood flow, especially for those patients suffering from low Blood circulation. It is also required for the health of the nervous system and is required for the biosynthesis of a number of cell constituents, including certain neurotransmitters. Just like Vitamin B1, Benfotiamine demonstrated itself as a miracle worker when somebody suffering severely from beriberi got on his feet within hours after being injected with the nutrient. Since then, it has been performing the same "miracle" without fail.

Benfotiamine also assists mental health, particularly warding off depression while facilitating memory functions and learning. It's deficiency will no doubt bring back the dreaded beriberi, while minor deficiencies will be manifested in the human body as extreme fatigue, irritability, constipation, edema and an enlarged liver. Forgetfulness, gastrointestinal disturbances, heart changes, irritability, and breathing difficulties are also common symptoms.

Promotes arterial function

Benfotiamine has been proven to improve the structural integrity of the veins and the entire circulatory system. Usually, people with varicose veins have an increased tendency to develop fibrin deposits in the tissue surrounding the affected veins. This causes the skin to become hard and lumpy. There is a decreased ability to break down fibrin, a compound involved in clot formation, thus an increased risk of the formation of a thrombus which may potentially cause life-threatening complications. Benfotiamine nutrient helps to promote fibrin breakdown hence promote the functioning of the arteries while enhancing the flood of Blood.

Subject: Vitamin D levels tied to breast cancer survival





We’ve all heard that we should be getting plenty of vitamin D in our diet. Now there may be an even better reason to keep our vitamin D levels up. A recent study has shown a link between high levels of the vitamin and a better prognosis for breast cancer. They claim that boosting levels during treatment didn’t change the outcomes. Patients who had high levels at the time of diagnosis had the best results in the end. They were less likely to die of any cause from the cancer. It is recommended that adults get 600-800 IU of vitamin D each day.

Key Takeaways:

  • Higher levels of vitamin D may be tied to better odds of surviving breast cancer.
  • In a recent study of breast cancer patients, roughly 100 women with the lowest vitamin D levels died, compared to only 76 women with the highest levels of vitamin D.
  • A randomized control trial is necessary to determine whether there is a direct, causal link.

"For women diagnosed with breast cancer, high vitamin D levels in the Blood may be tied to better odds of surviving and having tumors with less deadly characteristics, suggests a new study."

If you are one of the millions of people worldwide who suffers from alopecia, there are some things you can do to try bringing back that beautiful head of hair. These things do not work for everyone, but are always worth a try. Smoking, some prescription medications, stress, and alcohol can all have adverse effects on the hair. These, along with frequent hair treatments and tight hairstyles, should be avoided as much as possible to keep the hair nice. Just like the rest of the body, hair needs the proper balance of nutrients to survive.

Key Takeaways:

  • Without a doubt, hair is one of the most reliable indicators of the body’s health. Scientists can even test it to determine what diseases a person has had, or any drugs they have used. Almost everything that has passed through the Bloodstream ends up in the hair.
  • Naturally, this includes vitamins and minerals. Many of them are essential to ensure the health of the follicle, the papilla and its matrix, and the hair that grows from it.
  • The hair that is outside the scalp has no nerves or Blood supply, and is classified as “dead” tissue. It must be, or it could not be cut painlessly.

We have all felt the 2 o’ clock energy slump. What can we do to prevent it? Most people think that loading up on caffeine during the day to keep them awake is the answer. In reality, this can create a never-ending cycle that is bad for us. The best things we can do are eat a balanced diet rich in calcium and B vitamins and get the right amount and quality of sleep. Just eating healthier is not enough, however. It is also best to eat smaller, more frequent meals to keep us powered throughout the day.

Key Takeaways:

  • An energy-optimal meal or snack includes a mix of high-quality carbohydrates for energy with some lean protein and healthy fat for staying power.
  • Pick slow-digesting carbohydrates (“slow carbs”) like whole grains, whole fruits, vegetables or beans for a steadier supply of energy.
  • It’s not just what you eat, but how often you eat that matters. Eating every three to five hours also supports steady energy by encouraging gentle rises in Blood sugar (the body’s energy source) instead of a few large spikes.

Ginger root: a homemade remedy for stomach pain and nausea

Subject: Ginger root: a homemade remedy for stomach pain and nausea

A fragrant homemade remedy for an upset stomach is ginger. There are several properties that make ginger root a stomach pain soother. Researches have shown that ginger root has proved effective in getting rid of nausea while pregnancy. It is more effective than any anti inflammatory drug. Ginger root can alleviate the pain and discomfort in your abdomen in many ways. One gram of ginger taken in the form of tea, ale, salad, juice or soup is as efficacious as the anti-nausea drug, dimenhydrinate because it has lesser side effects. Ginger root is a better cure for nausea than vitamin B6. Ginger has reduced nausea due to chemotherapy in many cases.

The healing spice, ginger has anti-inflammatory properties which helps it in increasing the digestive juices, neutralizing the stomach, thus soothing the stomach pain. Ginger helps in the secretion of some digestive juices and enzymes that neutralize the stomach. The root of ginger contains two chemicals: gingerols and shogaols. These are antioxidants that reduce the free radical production, thus protecting the body from them. 

When we use ginger root to treat stomach pain, these two chemicals soothe the intestinal tract, in order to prevent motion sickness and relieve the person from vomiting, stomach cramps, diarrhea and nausea. As the intestinal tract gets relaxed, the person is instantly relieved of pain. It causes elimination of any extra gas from the intestinal tract. Ginger root help in the quick flow of food in the stomach through the digestive tract by facilitating better absorption of nutrients. It aids in the production of bile, saliva and other gastric juices for better digestion and prevention of gas. The muscles are relaxed because of the phenols present in ginger root, that act like a sedative. Any over activity of stomach is prevented. The stomach cramps are prevented because ginger reduces the food from backing up in the digestive system. These phenols also help in quick movement of food and toxins in intestine and digestive system. Besides, ginger root helps in improving Blood circulation and decreasing inflammation.

Watermelon is being tested as a new tool in the fight to lower Blood pressure. There are already some really great ways to help reduce Blood pressure. Quitting smoking and cutting down on alcohol and caffeine consumption can really help lower Blood pressure, and exercise and maintaining a healthy weight can also help. In addition, cutting down on salt and lowering our sugar intake are some of the first things doctors prescribe to help fight high Blood pressure. It seems watermelon may now be another tool to add to the arsenal.

Key Takeaways:

  • If you are over 40, or have a family history of high Blood pressure, limit your salt intake to about 1,500 mg a day
  • Thousands of studies have identified sugar as the main culprit for high Blood pressure
  • Because watermelon is mainly water, it fills you up without the added calories, leading to weight loss

The Health Benefits of Grape Seed Extract

Subject: The Health Benefits of Grape Seed Extract

Grape seed extract is most commonly a waste product produced by the grape juice and winery industry. This is because grape seed extract doesn't go into finished drinks. Grape seed contains a wide variety of health-enhancing ingredients like protein, carbohydrates and lipids (healthy fats).

Immune system


A study done on healthy volunteers found that grape seed considerably increased the levels of antioxidants in the Blood. So, another one of the benefits of grape seed is it helps boosts the immune system to fight against harmful compounds which may reduce the risk of chronic diseases including breast, stomach, colon, prostate and lung cancer.


Vascular Endothelial Health


Grape seed extracts have been tied to the prevention of cardiovascular diseases partly due to the long association of grape wines with low prevalence of heart diseases among the French. Besides, there is a growing literature devoted to the health potential of grape seed concerning their positive effects on vascular endothelial growth factor, a type of protein that signals the development of new healthy Blood vessels and improves the circulation of oxygen to tissues that suffer oxygen deprivation.

High Blood Pressure


Due to its antioxidant activity that may protect the Blood vessels, grape seed extract could theoretically benefit people with high Blood pressure. The UMMC points out that study in animals indicate that it's useful for this purpose. However, there are no human studies that have looked at grape seed extract's effect on hypertension.

High Cholesterol


The Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center states that one study suggests that grape seed, when taken with chromium, may lower "bad" Blood cholesterol. The UMMC describes grape seed extract's effects on Blood cholesterol as "promising"; however, more research is needed to see if grape seed is beneficial for this purpose.

Pancreas


In one study, patients with chronic inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis), grape seed extract showed promise. It appeared to significantly reduce the frequency and intensity of symptoms such as abdominal pain and nausea. This occurred even after conventional medications failed to help. These results are very preliminary and further studies will be needed to confirm these findings.

Subject: Acne's location on your body could reveal specific health issues





If you struggle with acne, it may be telling you something about your overall health. It seems the main cause of most acne is a bad diet, however, acne in certain locations can help diagnose specific problems in our health. Clothing choices, cosmetic usage, stress and Blood sugar levels can all be causes of acne.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although acne was formerly thought to be a simple skin condition caused by buildup of dirt and dead skin, it is increasingly being understood as a genuine inflammatory health condition.
  • And while most pimples clear up on their own in a week or so, large or persistent acne outbreaks are a cause to consult a health care professional.
  • It's no wonder, then, that the nature of an outbreak can be used to diagnose certain underlying health imbalances.

Subject: health benefits of dhea and how it declines as we age

The importance of DHEA to human health cannot be overlooked. Found in the Bloodstream, dhea is the furthermost plentiful hormone steroid. It is secreted in the brain, testes and ovaries and produced by the adrenal glands. Adrenal glands is the major producer of DHEA hormone. This hormone is changed to other hormones essential in the body such as estrogen and androgen.

Health benefits of DHEA

  • It enhances appearance of the skin. This is because it keeps the skin hydrated, intensifies epidermal thickness, boosts manufacture of sebum and controls facial skin coloring in old people.
  • Limits the level of cholesterol in the body
  • Facilitates proper functioning of the brain thus heightening cognitive abilities of individuals.
  • When dhea is taken orally for a couple of months, it assists in improving sexual performance in men by stimulating sexual desire, controlling erectile dysfunction and yielding sexual gratification.
  • Dhea is attributed to boosting moods by reducing levels of depression and anxiety.
  • Plays a role in formation of bones by improving bone mineral density.

How DHEA levels diminishes with age

As we age, dhea levels biologically diminish. According to research by experts, in our young years, plenty of dhea is secreted since it is vital for brain development and growth. This gradually continues until the age of 25 years after which the levels start to decline. The impact of the diminishing levels of dhea are mostly felt when we hit 40 years and above. This is manifested in terms of difficulties in remembering information, low levels of libido particularly in women, dry skin and increased anxiety.

DHEA is a hormone that is essential to human beings as it aids in counteracting the aging process, making us feel good and above all improving our overall health. Taking dhea supplements for those aged 40 years and above will help keep at bay problems associated with low levels of DHEA.

The immune system is complex, intricate and interesting. Things like fevers, hives, and inflammation can all be understood with the working of immune system. Generally, immune system does an amazing job defending us against disease. The problem starts when it fails. This happens when a germ invades our body successfully and makes us sick or causes a fever. To decrease the rate of such incidents it is important for us to make our immune system stronger.

Our immune system also brings to exhaust from years of defending so improving the immune system is extremely essential to stay away from diseases. This can be done by adapting lifestyle that supports the immune system. One person gets sick more or less often than the another person living the same life, or we see that when two people cross the same sick person one sometimes catch the flu while the other doesn't. This happens because all immune systems are not the same. One person can have a better immune system than the other. Working our body in a way to have an improved immune system can really help. The good news is there are many ways one can improve immune system.

Proper function of this system requires balance and harmony. First step to a stronger immune system is selecting a healthy lifestyle. Improving your diet, consuming certain vitamins and supplements, and making other lifestyle changes such as saying no to smoking, or getting enough sleep, etc can play a large role in this factor.

A number of steps that can be taken to improve an immune system are adjusting to a high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and low in saturated fat diet. Maintaining a healthy weight, controlling your Blood pressure, exercise and increased activity levels can also help in this matter. Other life style changes that can help you improve your system are quitting smoking, avoiding polluted areas, consuming moderate levels of alcohol, and getting sufficient sleep.

Take simple steps like washing your hands more frequently, or cooking meat thoroughly, avoiding encounter with sick people to avoid infection such as. Getting a regular medical screening also helps in staying away from diseases.

Are You Gaining Weight For No Reason? Check Your Thyroid

Subject: Are You Gaining Weight For No Reason? Check Your Thyroid

The human body is an extremely complex system of checks and balances that's held in a very delicate state of equilibrium. It's hard to understand at times but with the patience of science, we can usually get to the bottom of whichever mysteries our bodies will present us with.

One of the mysteries that some people might find themselves faced with at some point in their lives is that of gaining weight for no reason. Diets and exercise will seem not to work. A possible culprit might be found in a small organ known as the thyroid gland. Let’s have a closer look at it and how it may be affecting your metabolism and weight.


How the Thyroid Gland Works

The thyroid is the largest gland in your endocrine system of glands and is located right in the middle of your neck just below the Adam’s apple in men. Endocrine glands refer to glands that secrete hormones in the human body. The thyroid gland produces the hormones Thyroxine and Triiodothyronine, which are referred to as the thyroid hormones. These hormones play a significant role in your energy regulation and metabolism functions by prompting almost every cell in your body to increase its activity. This is essentially what your metabolic rate is. There are three basic categories of problems that can occur in your thyroid gland, as follow:

  • Hypothyroidism or Underactivity – too little thyroid hormones produced
  • Hyperthyroidism or Overactivity – too much thyroid hormones produced
  • Growths – include benign cysts and nodules as well as cancers of the thyroid gland

The Thyroid Gland and Weight Gain

When too little thyroid hormone is being produced in a patient, their metabolic rate will slow down, meaning that the body’s cell will not be burning up calories at their optimum rate. This will lead to these unspent calories being deposited throughout the body in the form of fat. The person affected might find themselves suddenly gaining weight without any apparent changes in their lifestyle or eating habits. This is also why dieting and exercise may not have the desired effect on the patient.

The symptoms of an underactive thyroid can be very vague because the hormone acts throughout the body but should you find yourself experiencing some of these, consider testing specifically for hypothyroidism:

  • General weakness
  • Cold intolerance
  • Heightened cholesterol levels
  • Fatigue
  • Sleepiness
  • Constipation
  • Mood swings
  • Forgetfulness
  • Heavy menses
  • Coarse, dry hair and skin
  • Weight gain
  • Changes in Blood pressure
  • Depression and/or irritability
  • Muscle cramps and aches
  • Swelling in legs (edema)
  • Blurred vision
  • Hoarse voice and sore throat
  • Hair loss (on head and/or body)

Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, & multiple sclerosis have become more prevalent over the years. Recent neurological studies are showing that these conditions can be prevented by supplementing more vitamin D in the diet. Many people just don’t get enough sunlight to provide the needed amount of vitamin D each day. It has been recommended to get at least 600 to 800 IU of the vitamin per day, but some are suggesting that we may need up to 8,000 IU per day in order to prevent disease, depending on our current health.

Key Takeaways:

  • Getting enough vitamin D is crucial to numerous health functions, while low vitamin D stresses the immune system and raises the risk of illness.
  • Research has shown that vitamin D supplementation brings a range of vitamin D benefits including disease prevention.
  • Studies have confirmed that major illnesses like Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis can be prevented by raising vitamin D levels

Subject: Can EDTA help my cardiovascular system

EDTA, also referred to as Calcium Disodimum Edathamil, is a synthetic amino acid used to treat a host of conditions including cardiovascular diseases. It can be administered intravenously, intramuscularly or orally.

Primary use: Detox Metals and Clean Veins

The hardening that occurs in our arteries, commonly known as atherosclerosis, contributes massively to poor cardiovascular health. This plaque buildup blocks your arteries causing diseases like high Blood pressure, high cholesterol levels and heart attacks. 

 EDTA chelation therapy has been proven to effectively dissolve the plaque restoring the arteries to their previously clear state. The healthy arteries allow good Blood flow eliminating cardiovascular diseases.

EDTA is also beneficial in lead poisoning treatment. It has the ability to bind itself to heavy metals like lead, arsenic and mercury in the Bloodstream. EDTA treats heavy metal toxicity. It is also used in dentistry during root canals, as well as to remove excess digoxin (the drug used for abnormal heart rhythms) in the body.

Everybody should take EDTA once a year to maintain a health cardiovascular system.
