Subject: Holy basil works to reduce stress and defeat cancer





With illnesses increasing and information regarding how to battle them growing in recent years, many have turned to holistic forms of medicine as a means of battling otherwise destabilizing diseases. One of these diseases that has been targeted for cure with non-traditional medicine has been that of cancer, which recent findings suggest that holy basil may be a potential aid in the fight against the disease, while also helping to reduce stress and other factors in an individual.

Key Takeaways:

  • The ayurvedic healing system has long revered the holy basil for millenials for its effectiveness against chronic stress. Now, modern researchers are discovering that secret.
  • Some of the things a substance must do to be an adaptogen is that it should strengthen the immune system, help the body during stress, and prevent diseases.
  • Holy basil, which is not to be confused with sweet basil, is an adaptogen and furthermore is also anti-inflammatory, an antioxidant, and immunity enhancing.

"Chronic stress damages the nervous system, suppresses the immune system, and can even cause increased appetite and weight gain. When it comes to relieving effects of stress, holy basil just might be the “gold standard” of soothing herbs."

This can be important since malnutrition is a large problem for addicts to overcome. Other suggestions include the use of art, adventure or psychotherapy.

Key Takeaways:

  • Vitamin C does not cause the kinds of side effects associated with methadone.
  • High doses of Vitamin C can help recovering addicts eat better, sleep better, and feel better overall.
  • In addition to Vitamin C, other effective forms of addiction treatment include psychotherapy, art therapy, and adventure therapy.

According to a study published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements, diabetic mice who were administered magnesium showed improvements in markers for anemia and inflammation. Researchers at the University of Idaban in Nigeria used alloxan to induce diabetes in mice. They then treated some of the mice with magnesium every day for two weeks. The mice treated with insulin experienced improvements in their anemic state, as well as improvements in hematologic and metabolic inflammatory markers. Symptoms of magnesium deficiency include nausea, weakness, and loss of appetite.

Key Takeaways:

  • Some researchers in the University of Ibadan, using mice, administered oral magnesium to understand the effect on anemia and diabetic mice.
  • The discovery from the study was that treatment of anemic mice with magnesium improved their state and also it relieved them of inflammatory diabetes.
  • Because people with diabetes tend to eliminate a high amount of magnesium and sugar in urine, they tend to have low levels of magnesium.

"A study published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements found that supplementing with magnesium can prevent anemia and reduce inflammation in people with diabetes."

Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)

Vitamin B1, which is also known as thiamine, is a vital nutrient when it comes to human nutrition. In fact, Thiamine is a vital nutrient for the human nervous system. Within this capacity, it moderates appetite, prevents memory loss and reduces the possibility of nerve inflammation.

Thiamine has the intrinsic capacity to aid in maintaining energy levels, because its used at the cellular level throughout the body. That said, it stands to reason that a Thiamine deficiency can show itself as a significant lack of endurance and in a tendency to exhaustion. Besides its profound effect on the central nervous system, Thiamine also has a decided effect on the gastrointestinal system. Fortunately, besides supplementing with vitamins, Thiamine is amply available in natural foods. High protein sources include lean pork, fish and dry roasted soybeans. Vegans can get their thiamine on too. Besides soybeans, the nutrient is available in good quantity in wheat bread, asparagus and green peas.

Key Takeaways:

  • Vitamin B1 also helps to regulate appetite and improve memory, besides being of use to the digestive system.
  • Thiamine boosts energy at the cellular level, which is why a severe lack of the nutrient can lead to exhaustion and a lack of endurance.
  • Lean pork, fish, green peas, roasted dry soybeans, wheat bread and cooked asparagus are all good sources of Thiamine.

Worse than sugar, this alternative boosts your risk of obesity and diabetes

Nearly 40 percent of American adults are obese, and although the food industry often presents artificial sweeteners as a solution, they are even worse for your health than the real thing. Artificial sweeteners may raise your risk of obesity and diabetes even more than real sugar, and may cause worse damage to the lining of the blood vessels. Over the long term, artificial sweeteners can change or wear down the cellular “machinery” your body uses to make energy, or even trick your body into breaking down muscle.

Key Takeaways:

  • Artificial sweeteners are not a solution to the out-of-control rates of obesity in America, and may make the problem even worse.
  • Artificial sweeteners can change your body’s processes for making energy and trick your body into burning muscle for energy.
  • Artificial sweeteners can stimulate the appetite, and previous research has strongly associated it with greater weight gain.

"If you’re still holding out hope that science will eventually prove artificial sweeteners to be beneficial, or at the very least harmless, you’re likely to be disappointed."

The bedtime mistakes that are making you gain weight

Are you one of many people who are trying to lose weight. Here are several bad bedtime habits that might be standing in your way of reaching that goal. Ignore your craving for a late night snack. Some researchers believe that insufficient sleep can affect weight too. That includes staying off any devices, like your phone, laptop or tablet. Avoiding caffeine at night will help you sleep as well. Also, sleep with the light off and get regular exercise to regulate your body for sleep.

Key Takeaways:

  • Eating late at night has been shown to increase insulin levels and cholesterol levels, besides being implicated in weight gain.
  • Two significant hormones that help to regulate appetite are thrown off balance when you don't get sufficient sleep.
  • The blue light on our devices, which are good for increasing focus, are conversely poor for inducing sleep and should be avoided before slumber-time.

"Believe it or not, your bedtime routine may be a contributing factor to your weight gain, but the good news is that by adjusting your routine slightly you can get back on track to reach your desired goal weight."

What You Should Know About CBD Oil

All marijuana strands have two components within them: THC and CBD. THC is the component that has psychoactive effects on those who consume it, but CBD carries the benefits of marijuana without those psychoactive side effects. It has been shown to work well in epileptic patients, along with those who suffer from a long list of other medical ailments. Unfortunately, the tests done to prove these claims were all pre-clinical, which means they were not tested on humans instead of mice and test tubes.

Key Takeaways:

  • All strands of cannabis include over 100 forms of cannabinoids, many of which we have not studied as much as THC.
  • There are over 23,000 scientific papers that support research showing how CBD oil helps medical conditions.
  • CBD oil can also cause changes in appetite, and some other troublesome symptoms such as diarrhea.

"THC can affect the CB1 receptors, and it’s responsible for weed’s high. CBD is a little more complicated; it can affect both types of receptors, but often in indirect ways. The exact mechanisms aren’t fully understood."

Subject: Can your dog be arrested for using a cannabis extract?





Thomas McDermott, a Democrat and the Mayor of Hammond, Indiana, brought up the legality of using cannabidiol oil (CBD) for treating his Labrador retriever's arthritis at the BGD Legislative Conference in Indianapolis. At the conference was Republican Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill who last month stated that the use of CBD was illegal in most circumstances in his state after a bill passed to allow epilepsy patients to legally use the oil for seizures. McDermott questioned Hill using a story about his dog that suffered from arthritis, noting that his vet recommended using CBD oil to treat the pain. He mentioned that the oil allowed his dog to move around more easily, had more energy, and had improved appetite. McDermott thought aloud that Hill was "grandstanding" on CBD, but Hill simply stated he was following the law as it was written. When McDermott asked if his dog was breaking the law, Hill responded that the Mayor himself was breaking the law - not the dog. McDermott was upset afterwards that Hill accused him for being a criminal for treating his dog with CBD, and he has no plans to change the therapy for his dog.

Key Takeaways:

  • The owners dog currently used CBD and that is restricted in Indiana for use.
  • The dog is currently on it due to arthritis and it seems to cure his condition.
  • The final conclusion was that the owner was breaking the law, not the dog since the dog has no agency.

"The question Thomas McDermott wanted answered Wednesday doesn’t get asked often during policy discussions in Indiana: Could his Labrador retriever be breaking the law by using a pain remedy extracted from cannabis?"

Scientists call on feds to allow research on CBD for pets

Subject: Scientists call on feds to allow research on CBD for pets





Veterinarians, researchers and pet owners are looking to loosen federal regulations on the use of marijuana products to help treat sick animals. Medical issues in dogs, such as epilepsy, arthritis, anxiety, loss of appetite and inflammation could potentially by helped by marijuana-based drugs and extracts.

Some people are already using marijuana extracts on their animals, such as those containing CBD, which is an element of marijuana that is not psychoactive. However, such extracts continue to be listed as Schedule 1 drugs by the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration, even when they contain little or no THC. THC is the active component in marijuana that causes intoxication.

The Food and Drug Administration has warned that marijuana products for pets sold in animal hospitals or online pet stores are illegal, since such drugs are unapproved. The FDA has suggested it will pursue legal action against those in violation of the law.

However, the policy-making body of the American Veterinary Medical Association, in conjunction with two group councils, is considering making a recommendation to the DEA for marijuana to be declassified as a Schedule 1 drug in order to enable research for both animal and human medical purposes. Declassification could also help prevent pet owners from accidentally overmedicating their animals in the absence of proper guidance from a medical professional.

In September, Republican senator Orrin Hatch of Utah introduced a bill that would facilitate research on use of marijuana-based medications, concurring that the drug is over-regulated, although he continues to oppose recreational use of the drug,.

Some veterinarians note that without sufficient evidence, it remains unsafe to use marijuana products on animals, with concerns about potential toxicity.

Yet researchers are continuing to wait for clearance to proceed on various relevant studies, such as use of marijuana for dogs with osteoarthritis, pruritis and epilepsy. Some research on use of products with CBD has been stopped until federal approval is granted. Gaining approval has been difficult due to government requirements, which continue to be an obstacle to moving forward.

Many people suffer from over eating, but there is a similar problem that affects many other people- lack of Appetite. Lack of Appetite can stem from various factors, but it can be serious to people who are suffering illness and need to take in nutrients to get better. Marijuana is known to cause people to get "the munchies." There are two different components of marijuana that can help with lack of Appetite: CBD and THC. Users can get these components in a variety of ways.

Key Takeaways:

  • A lack of Appetite can be a serious condition when chronic. When we don’t eat, our health suffers.
  • Marijuana is an approved medication for Appetite loss; however, CBD may also help ease symptoms.
  • Not having an Appetite can cause problems for people who are already underweight, or individuals who are losing weight when they shouldn’t or don’t want to.

"While CBD isn’t known for its Appetite-stimulating properties (in other words, it doesn’t give users “the munchies” the same way THC is known to do); it can still have some beneficial effects on people suffering from a lack of Appetite."

  • CBD, otherwise known as Cannabidiol, is one of over 100 compounds in the cannabis plant called Cannabinoids. The most abundant is THC, the bit that gets people high, after that comes CBD.
  • Because CBD doesn’t create a high, it’s been labelled ‘the good’ cannabinoid and THC the ‘bad’. But in countries where medical cannabis is legal, THC can be prescribed for cancer patients going through chemo as it eases nausea and improves Appetite.

"In the UK it has been possible to buy CBD as a nutritional supplement. But last October, the Medical Healthcare Regulatory Agency decided to recognise CBD’s therapeutic benefits and reclassify it as medicine."

The Difference Between Type I and II diabetes.

Subject: The Difference Between Type I and II diabetes.

There are mainly two different types of diabetes - Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes.

Type 1 diabetes is known as insulin-dependent or juvenile diabetes. It is a condition in which there is an absolute lack of insulin. Due to the attacking of the body's immune system, the beta cells which are present in the pancreas and are responsible for making and secreting insulin die. Thus, there are no cells available to make insulin. So, in this case, the body will die without getting supplemental insulin immediately or in near- immediate future. The only treatment for this diabetes is insulin shots. Almost 10% of the people get this diabetes.

Whereas in type 2 diabetes, beta cells are present therefore insulin is also present. This diabetes is also known as non-insulin dependent diabetes. Insulin production produced is less than the amount of insulin the body requires. Almost 90% get affected by this type of diabetes. Treatment includes proper diet, exercise, and pills.

Usually, type 1 diabetes starts during childhood whereas type 2 diabetes is usually diagnosed during adulthood. As type 1 diabetes affects mostly young babies and children, it is known as juvenile-onset diabetes. People who have type 1 diabetes lack total insulin whereas type 2 diabetics have too little insulin.

Even the causes of type 1 and type 2 diabetes are entirely different. It is not possible to prevent type 1 diabetes whereas type 2 can be avoided. But type 2 diabetes may be genetic also. It may be the result of obesity or high blood pressure. The symptoms of type 1 diabetes are very severe. Suddenly the child becomes feeble and sick; urination is increased, experience increased thirst, nausea, vomiting, stomach and abdominal pain, excessive fatigue, weight loss and decreased Appetite. Immediate medical attention or usually hospitalization is required for the person suffering from these symptoms. On the other hand, type 2 is often diagnosed before the presence of any symptoms.

Subject: A New Marijuana To Relieve Pain Without The High





The pure medical value of marijuana is apparently being isolated without getting the user high, LatinosHealth reports. The two main molecules in marijuana are THC (which contains the "high"), and CBD, which does not get the user high, but can relieve pain. Efforts are being made to isolate the CBD side of marijuana for pure medical use.

Key Takeaways:

  • The medicinal value of the intoxicating plant Marijuana has often been contested because of its side effects but a recent study claims it can be successfully used as a pain reliever and that too without getting high!
  • According to the Washington Post marijuana consists of two main molecules, one is an intoxicating agent called tetrahydrocannabinol or THC a mind altering substance and the other cannabidiol or CBD which does not get the user high.
  • Another New York University neurologist Orrin Devinsky and his colleague Daniel Friedman observed that patients receiving CBD apart from their usual medicines had 39 percent lesser convulsive seizures than others.

"Earlier researchers were of the opinion that CBD had no use in the human body while THC was used to treat pain, nausea, loss of Appetite and other problems but that notion has changed as CBD has been used in the treatment of diseases like epilepsy, anxiety, schizophrenia, heart disease and cancer."

Subject: A powerful new form of medical marijuana, without the high





A new and powerful form of medical marijuana has been discovered, and it will help relieve any ailments you may be having without giving you the “high” effect that many types of marijuana tend to give. This form of marijuana contains cannabidiol, or CBD, not THC, which gives the high effect. Scientists have determined that it can help cure illnesses such as anxiety, heart disease, and cancer. While there is still more research still needs to be done, scientists are hopeful that these findings will help patients shift away from using marijuana with THC.

Key Takeaways:

  • Over decades, researchers have found that THC may help treat pain, nausea, loss of Appetite and other problems, while CBD was thought to be biologically inactive in humans.
  • But in the past 10 years, scientists have concluded that CBD may be quite useful.
  • Dozens of studies have found evidence that the compound can treat epilepsy as well as a range of other illnesses, including anxiety, schizophrenia, heart disease and cancer.

When it comes to outrageous science hoaxes in general there are ten of the most outrageous science hoaxes that concern apple cider vinegar in general. These outrageous science hoaxes include that it balances the blood sugar and improves diabetes, prevents weight gain, improves digestive health, as well as a few other ones in general.

Key Takeaways:

  • Studies have shown that ACV can regulate blood sugar levels and improve diabetic conditions
  • By boosting metabolism, regulating Appetite and minimizing water retention ACV can help with weight loss
  • ACV can improve digestive health as a natural antibiotic and stimulator of "good" bacteria in the digestive tract.

"(NaturalNews) Apple cider vinegar (ACV), the kitchen staple made from fermented apples, has a long history as a folk remedy for numerous conditions ranging from curing hiccups and alleviating cold symptoms to making your hair shine, whitening your teeth, and freshening your breath."

Subject: Tired? Weak? You're not 'just getting old'; something is wrong





When we start feeling rundown and tired, we tend to make jokes about getting old. The truth is, however, that feelings of depression and fatigue are not normal aging side effects. If these feelings are longer than expected, a consultation with a doctor is in order. You know your body best. If something doesn’t feel right, don’t try to pass it off as aging. There are many factors, medical and physical, that can cause signs of fatigue, depression, change of Appetite, and weakness. Only a doctor can order the tests that can tell you the exact reason, so don’t hesitate.

Key Takeaways:

  • When Dr. Christopher Callahan examines older patients, he often hears a similar refrain.
  • This fatalistic stance relies on widely-held but mistaken assumptions about what constitutes normal aging
  • Instead, they're a signal that something is wrong and a medical evaluation is in order.

"If you suddenly find your thinking is cloudy and your memory unreliable, if you're overcome by dizziness and your balance is out of whack, if you find yourself tossing and turning at night and running urgently to the bathroom, don't chalk it up to normal aging."

How protein-rich diets help lose weight

Subject: How protein-rich diets help lose weight





Many researchers have started focusing on the effect certain foods have on weight and metabolism. One such study involves determining how proteins help with weight loss. What they found is that phenylalanine is released when protein is broken down, which then causes the body to release hormones that tell our bodies that they are full. In contrast, low protein diets allow another hormone to be released in excess that tells us we are hungry. This research could someday lead to medications being developed that will help with the growing obesity epidemic.

Key Takeaways:

  • Lower estimated glomerular filtration rate, another indicator of poor kidney function, was linked with worse performance on tests of global cognitive function and memory.
  • A better understanding of the mechanism by which protein diets cause weight loss could lead to the development of drugs and diets that tackle the growing obesity epidemic.
  • In contrast, high levels of the hormone GLP-1 tell us when we have had enough food and tell our bodies to stop eating.

"the precise mechanisms by which phenylalanine suppresses Appetite and body weight still need to be determined, and there are likely to be additional mechanisms which are also involved in the beneficial effects of a high protein diet."

Benefits of stress management

Subject: Benefits of stress management

Mental Health can be overlooked in our everyday lives but it plays a huge role in our health. Our mental state can affect us in many ways both positively and negatively. This article will be discuss the importance of Mental Health with a concentration on stress management. Stress is a significant cause of mental illness today and although we can't eradicate it, we can manage it It is important to understand that not all stress is negative. Stress may occur prior to weddings, graduations, or even social gatherings, but no matter the source of stress, your bodies respond the same. Also, some stress is good for you in order to manage skills needed for survival such as fight or flight.

Experts suggest a combination of physical, social, environmental, and psychological approaches to managing stress. When we are stressed, we encounter General Adaptation Syndrome (GAS). GAS is your complex physiological responses that happen as a result of the stress and has three phases. The first phase of GAS is the alarm phase. The alarm phase occurs when we sense there is a stressor present (Body doesn't sense whether it is a good or bad stressor), everything becomes heightened and hormones respond. The seconds phase of GAS is called the resistance phase. During the resistance phase your body resists stress to get your it back to homeostasis. If you can't rid the stress you move into exhaustion The last phase, exhaustion, occurs when your body is tired and can't fight anymore to get it back to homeostasis. Physical or emotional tension is often a good indicator of stress.


Below is a short list of symptoms from stress.

  • Tension and irritability
  • Fear and anxiety about the future
  • Difficulty making decisions
  • Being numb to one's feelings
  • Loss of interest in normal activities
  • Loss of Appetite

We all experience some level of stress on a regular basis but as I mentioned before, too much can be harmful to your body. Below I have listed ways in which you can deal with and reduce stress levels.

Take Care of Yourself


Taking care of yourself seems self-explanatory for many but as we enter the exhaustion phase our attention to self-care begins to decline. Eat a healthy diet, get plenty of sleep, treat yourself, and maintain your normal routine.

Stay Active


It is often said that exercise is the most underused stress reliever and this is 100% true. Working out forces you to take your mind off of the stressors and focus on what you are doing and nothing else. Get in a gym or go for a run to lower your stress levels.

Social Support


Being able to talk to someone during stressful times is very important. Connect with a friend or family member that you will listen to what you want to get off your mind. This can be very helpful for stress reduction.

Avoid Alcohol or Drugs


People often turn to drugs and alcohol in times of stress but fail to realize they only provide temporary relief. Once your "high" or "buzz" wears off, you will more than likely feel worse than before. Alcohol and drugs add to stress and do not help to reduce its impact. I hope this information helps you to recognize when you are stressed and how to handle it Stress is a serious issue that we tend to overlook. Stress is usually a catalyst for other illnesses such as anxiety to occur.

In conclusion chamomile will help you zap stress and unwind and have healthy life.

Subject: How does a high-protein diet aid weight loss? Study sheds light





Are you trying to lose weight? It seems like there is a ton of tips out there and a lot of it is going the route of contradicting each other. No matter where you look, there's something that's supposed to help you lose weight compared to something else (nevermind what helps weight gain!). "How does a high-protein diet aid weight loss? Study sheds light" gives proof that a high-protein diet is actually better than all those other tips...

Key Takeaways:

  • In a new pilot study, researchers from Imperial College London in the United Kingdom reveal how phenylalanine - an amino acid produced by the digestion of protein - boosts levels of a hormone that tells us when we are full, leading to reduced food intake.
  • The researchers found that mice and rats given phenylalanine showed increased levels of the hormone GLP-1, which suppresses Appetite, but reduced levels of the hormone ghrelin, which increases hunger.
  • On applying phenylalanine to gut cells in a petri dish, the team found that the amino acid targets a receptor called the calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR), and it is this receptor that increases GLP-1 levels and lowers levels of ghrelin.

"Lead author Mariana Norton will present the findings at this week's Society for Endocrinology annual meeting in the U.K."

Curcumin Helps Alleviate Depression

Subject: Curcumin Helps Alleviate Depression

Curcumin is a phenolic acid that can be sourced from the cooking spice turmeric. It acts as a powerful antioxidant in humans and protects the body's cells from dangerous free radicals (harmful by-products that are released into the cells during oxygen related reactions). Provisional studies suggest that it may also have many more health benefits. There is also some evidence that curcumin or turmeric may help alleviate the symptoms of certain skin diseases, viral infections, diabetes, colitis, stomach ulcers, and high cholesterol. Once again, the ancient herbal remedy is being celebrated as a modern wonder drug. But perhaps the most promising results have been seen in the use of curcumin to treat depression.

Curcumin2

Curcumin vs. Prozac

If there's one thing Big Pharma fears more than anything else it's competition from the outside. Because herbal medicines have far fewer and less serious side effects than prescription pills, they would be the logical choice - if only they worked as well. Well, there is now irrefutable, ironclad scientific evidence that an herbal remedy is every bit as effective at treating depression as one of the most popular prescription antidepressants.

When researchers with the Department of Pharmacology of Government Medical College in Bhavnagar, Gujarat, India conducted a controlled clinical study comparing the effects of curcumin and Prozac, they didn't expect to make national, even global news. Although the popular herbal remedy is widely used in India, curcumin had never been subjected to rigorous scientific testing for the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD). The most serious and chronic form of the disease, major or clinical depression affects about 3 percent of population at any given time. The idea that a chemical compound from a popular native spice could compete with Prozac seemed far- fetched to those conducting the study. But after 60 patients diagnosed with MDD were randomly administered curcumin, fluoxetine (Prozac), and a combination of the two, the results spoke for themselves.

With the help of the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale, 17-item version (HAM-D17), researchers determined that curcumin was just as effective as Prozac at treating serious depression. Because the study utilized the latest research tools and followed strict testing guidelines, it became the first published report that indicated the efficacy of turmeric or curcumin in the treatment of depression. What the report did not take into account, however, were the serious side effects those who take Prozac endure; the most serious of which include anxiety, seizures, racing heartbeat, trouble sleeping, and suicidal ideation.

How Curcumin Treats Depression

Shortly after the results of the aforementioned study made news, researchers started looking for answers. It was not enough for Western scientists to know that curcumin is effective in the treatment depression, they also had to know how. As you might imagine, the how has proved more challenging than the if. This is not at all surprising, since curcumin has diverse biological properties that are difficult to study separately. So, while the mechanism of action is poorly understood, the effects of curcumin intake are well documented, particularly with regard to neurotransmitters.

As their name implies, neurotransmitters send messages to the billions of neurons in the human brain. Some of these neurotransmitters are responsible for regulating brain functions such as mood, memory, Appetite, and sleep. Known as "feel-good" neurotransmitters because they help maintain mood balance, dopamine and serotonin play a role in depression. How do we know? For starters, studies have confirmed that people who suffer from clinical depression have consistently low levels of both neurotransmitters.

Once again, we aren't sure how curcumin extract works its magic, but testing has shown that those who take it have higher serotonin and dopamine levels. That fact alone might account for the improved mood those that take the dietary supplement have consistently reported. Although researchers will undoubtedly get to the bottom of this ancient mystery, it enough for most patients to know that curcumin is a safe and effective treatment option.
