Subject: How Melatonin Can Support a Healthy Sleep Cycle and More

Did you know that melatonin is a powerful free radical scavenger? This means that it helps protect the body from damage caused by harmful molecules called radicals. Melatonin is also naturally produced in the pineal gland and is present in high amounts in the GI tract. We will discuss some of the ways that melatonin supports health and wellness.

Melatonin and the body

Melatonin is a hormone that is produced by the pineal gland in the brain. It is responsible for regulating the body's internal clock, or circadian rhythm. The production of melatonin increases at night, and decreases during the day. This hormone is also available in supplement form, and is often used to treat jet lag or insomnia. When taken as a supplement, melatonin works by resetting the body's internal clock, making it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep. Additionally, melatonin may also help to reduce anxiety and improve mood. As a result, this hormone plays an important role in regulating the body's sleep-wake cycle.

How does melatonin support a healthy sleep cycle?

Melatonin is a hormone that help regulate the sleep cycle. The production of melatonin is stimulated by darkness and inhibited by light. As a result, melatonin levels typically start to rise in the evening as the sun sets, and they remain high throughout the night. In the morning, light exposure causes melatonin levels to drop, helping to wake us up and start the day. Melatonin supplements can be used to help people who have difficulty sleeping and staying asleep. This hormone helps to reset the body's natural sleep cycle, making it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep. As a result, melatonin can be an effective way to support a healthy sleep cycle.

What are some of the other benefits of melatonin?

It can help to boost the immune system, protect against cancer, and reduce inflammation. Research suggests that melatonin may also have neuroprotective effects and could be beneficial for people with Alzheimer's disease or Parkinson's disease.

Tips for getting a good night's sleep

Most people need about seven to eight hours of sleep a day. However, many people find it difficult to get enough rest. There are a number of things you can do to improve your sleep habits. First, create a regular sleep schedule and stick to it as much as possible. Go to bed and wake up at the same time each day, even on weekends. Second, create a relaxing bedtime routine. This might include taking a warm shower, reading a book, or writing in a journal. Third, create a comfortable sleep environment by making sure your bedroom is dark, quiet, and cool. Fourth, avoid caffeine and alcohol before bed. Caffeine can make it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep, while alcohol can disrupt your sleep cycle. Finally, try not to use electronic devices in bed. The blue light emitted by screens can interfere with your body's natural sleep rhythm and take melatonin. By following these tips, you can improve your chances of getting a good night's sleep.

Scientific research

Research on melatonin began in the 1950s, and since then, numerous studies have been conducted on its potential health benefits. Some of the most promising research has found that melatonin may help to prevent cancer. In one study, melatonin supplements were found to reduce the risk of breast cancer recurrence by half. Other research has shown that melatonin may help to protect against colon cancer, prostate cancer, and ovarian cancer. Additionally, melatonin has been shown to boost the effectiveness of chemotherapy drugs and radiation therapy.

While more research is needed to confirm the exact role of melatonin in cancer Prevention, the available evidence suggests that it could play a significant role in protecting against this disease. Therefore, it may be worth considering supplementing with melatonin if you are at high risk for cancer or are undergoing treatment for this disease.

Subject: The Kidneys and Your Health: Everything You Need to Know

The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs that sit in the lower back, on either side of the spine. They play a vital role in your health, filtering toxins from the blood and regulating fluid balance in the body. We will discuss everything you need to know about the kidneys, including common kidney problems and how to keep them healthy!

What are the common kidney problems

The kidneys are a pair of organs that filter waste products from the blood and excrete them in urine. They are also responsible for regulating fluid and electrolyte balance in the body. Kidney problems can range from mild to severe, and can be acute or chronic. Common kidney problems include kidney stones, urinary tract infections, and Nephrotic Syndrome. Kidney stones are small, hard deposits that form in the kidney when there is an imbalance of minerals in the urine. Urinary tract infections occur when bacteria enter the urinary system and multiply. Nephrotic Syndrome is a kidney disorder that causes the body to excrete large amounts of protein in the urine.Kidney problems can often be treated with medication, but in some cases, surgery may be necessary. Early diagnosis and treatment is important to prevent serious complications.

Acute renal failure

Acute renal failure is a sudden onset of kidney failure that can be life-threatening. The kidneys are responsible for filtering waste from the blood and balancing fluids in the body. When they are not working properly, waste can build up in the blood and cause serious health problems. Acute renal failure can be caused by a number of factors, including dehydration, infection, and certain medications. Symptoms include decreased urine output, swelling, fatigue, and confusion. If left untreated, acute renal failure can lead to coma and death. Early diagnosis and treatment is essential for a successful outcome.

Chronic renal failure

Chronic renal failure, or CRF, is a serious medical condition that affects the kidneys. In this condition, the kidneys become damaged and unable to function properly. As a result, toxins can build up in the body, causing a variety of symptoms. Some of these symptoms may include fatigue, bloating and swelling, nausea, diarrhea or constipation, poor appetite, changes in urination frequency or color, and anemia. Diagnosing CRF involves examining several factors like blood test results and overall medical history. Treatment for the condition typically involves managing any associated symptoms with medication or dietary changes. In some cases, dialysis may also be necessary to support patients with severe CRF. Overall, chronic renal failure is a serious but manageable condition that requires careful monitoring and management by patients and their healthcare providers.

Renal artery stenosis

Renal artery stenosis refers to a condition in which one or more of the arteries that deliver blood to the kidneys becomes narrowed or blocked. This can lead to a number of adverse health effects, including increased blood pressure, chronic kidney failure, and possibly even heart attack or stroke. While there are a number of possible causes for this condition, including genetic factors, certain lifestyle choices such as smoking can also increase the risk of developing renal artery stenosis. Fortunately, treatments are available for this condition, including medications and medical procedures like angioplasty. For those who are diagnosed with renal artery stenosis, early and effective treatment is essential for maintaining overall health and wellbeing.

Renal cancer

Renal cancer begins in the kidneys, which are a pair of bean-shaped organs that filter waste from the blood and produce urine. The most common type of renal cancer is clear cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC), which accounts for about three-quarters of all cases. RCC typically affects middle-aged adults and is more common in men than women. Other types of renal cancer include papillary renal cell carcinoma, chromophobe renal cell carcinoma, and collecting duct carcinoma. Treatment for renal cancer may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, or immunotherapy. The type of treatment will depend on the stage of the cancer and the patient's overall health. Early diagnosis and treatment is essential for the best possible outcome.

Polycystic kidney disease

Polycystic kidney disease, or PKD, is a complex condition that affects the kidneys and other organs in the body. This disorder occurs when small cysts grow in the kidneys, gradually interfering with their ability to filter waste products from the blood. As these cysts start to expand, they can cause a number of severe symptoms such as high blood pressure, chronic pain, nausea and fatigue. In some cases, PKD also results in serious complications such as renal failure or a stroke. However, there are treatments available that can help people manage this disorder and slow its progression over time. By working closely with a medical team and making lifestyle changes to support kidney health, it is possible for people living with PKD to have long and healthy lives.

Urinary tract infection

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection that can occur in any part of the urinary system, including the kidneys, ureters, bladder, or urethra. UTIs are most commonly caused by bacteria, but they can also be caused by fungi or viruses. Symptoms of a UTI may include pain or burning during urination, increased frequency or urgency of urination, cloudy or blood-tinged urine, and pelvic pain. If left untreated, a UTI can lead to serious complications, such as kidney damage or sepsis. Early diagnosis and treatment is essential for preventing serious health problems. UTIs are typically diagnosed through urinalysis, which can detect the presence of bacteria or other organisms in the urine. Treatment usually involves antibiotics to kill the infection-causing bacteria. In some cases, hospitalization may be necessary to treat a severe UTI. Additionally, drinking plenty of fluids and emptying the bladder frequently can help to flush out bacteria and prevent reinfection. Wiping from front to back after using the restroom can also help to reduce the risk of UTI development. Avoiding masturbation devices would good idea if you get frequent urinary tract infections because they can introduce new bacteria into the urethra.

UTI and D-Mannose

A urinary tract infection, or UTI, is a common medical condition that can cause symptoms such as painful urination, abdominal discomfort, and sometimes even fever. While conventional treatments typically involve antibiotics, these medications often come with unwanted side effects like nausea and diarrhea. Fortunately, there is another alternative in the form of D-Mannose, a naturally-occurring sugar that has been shown to help treat UTIs by eliminating bacterial biofilms and relieving symptoms. Unlike antibiotics, which can damage gut health by killing off beneficial bacteria along with the harmful ones, D-Mannose does not disrupt this critical ecosystem. As a result, D-Mannose is becoming an increasingly popular treatment for UTIs, offering an effective and safe alternative to antibiotics.

Kidney stones

Kidney stones are one of the most painful medical conditions to experience. These small, hard deposits form when there is an imbalance in the levels of certain minerals in the body. As they grow larger, kidney stones can cause severe pain as they move through the urinary tract. Treatment typically involves drinking plenty of fluids and taking pain medication. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove the kidney stone. Prevention is the best way to avoid kidney stones, and maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle is the best way to do this. Drinking plenty of fluids, especially water, and eating a diet high in fiber can help to prevent kidney stones from forming.

Glomerulonephritis

Glomerulonephritis is a serious kidney condition that occurs when the tiny filtration units in the kidneys, known as glomeruli, become inflamed and damaged. This can disrupt normal kidney function, causing a buildup of waste products in the bloodstream, resulting in numerous symptoms such as swelling and joint pain. While there is no cure for glomerulonephritis, treatment options can help to reduce inflammation and manage symptoms. These may include medications to control blood pressure or reduce harmful inflammatory chemicals, along with lifestyle changes to support overall kidney health. With proper medical care and close monitoring, many people with glomerulonephritis are able to live healthy lives despite this chronic condition.

Kidney disease is a serious condition that can lead to a variety of health problems. If you have kidney disease, it is important to monitor your symptoms and seek medical treatment as soon as possible. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to managing kidney disease, but by working with your healthcare team and following their recommendations, you can help improve your health and quality of life. Remember, knowledge is power, so be sure to educate yourself about kidney disease and its treatment options. With the right information and support, you can live a full and productive life despite this serious condition.

Subject: Polyphenols: The Powerful, Health-Boosting Nutrients in Rainbow-Colored Foods

Polyphenols are a type of nutrient found in a variety of rainbow-colored foods. These nutrients offer a range of health benefits, from boosting your immune system to protecting your heart. Polyphenols are especially beneficial for promoting good health and preventing disease. In this blog post, we'll discuss what polyphenols are, where you can find them, and some of the health benefits they offer.

What are polyphenols and what do they do for the body?

Polyphenols are a type of micronutrient that are found in plant foods. They're known for their antioxidant properties, meaning they help to protect cells from damage. Polyphenols can also help to reduce inflammation and promote heart health by reducing cholesterol levels and blood pressure. Some research has also shown that polyphenols may help to prevent certain types of cancer. The body needs polyphenols for several different functions, making them an important part of a healthy diet. Most people consume adequate amounts of polyphenols through their diet, but those who don't eat many plant foods may want to consider taking a supplement.

Polyphenols and cancer Prevention

Research has shown that polyphenols may play a role in cancer Prevention. One mechanism by which polyphenols may protect against cancer is by inhibiting the growth of cancer cells. Polyphenols may also help to protect DNA from damage, which can lead to the development of cancer. Additionally, polyphenols can induce apoptosis, or cell death, in cancer cells. Some studies have also suggested that polyphenols may help to reduce inflammation, which has been linked to the development of cancer. While further research is needed to better understand the role of polyphenols in cancer Prevention, the existing evidence suggests that consuming polyphenol-rich foods may help to reduce the risk of developing cancer.

Polyphenols and heart health

Polyphenols are known for their antioxidant properties and have been linked to a number of health benefits, including heart health. Some studies have shown that polyphenols may help to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by reducing inflammation and improving blood vessel function. Polyphenols may also help to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, two key risk factors for heart disease. While more research is needed to confirm these benefits, consuming foods rich in polyphenols is a simple way to support heart health. Good sources of polyphenols include fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and vitamin supplements. Including these foods as part of a healthy diet is a good way to ensure that you're getting adequate levels of this important micronutrient.

Polyphenols and brain health

While they are sometimes necessary in small quantities for human health, recent research has suggested that they may also have beneficial effects on brain health. One study found that polyphenols may help to improve cognitive function in older adults, while another found that they may help to reduce the risk of dementia. Additionally, polyphenols have also been shown to protect neuronal cells from damage and death. As a result, consuming foods rich in polyphenols may help to protect the brain from age-related decline.

The benefits of polyphenols for overall good health

  • Antioxidant
  • Anti-inflammatory properties
  • Heart health
  • Cancer Prevention
  • Brain health
  • Polyphenols can also help to improve gut health by promoting the growth of healthy bacteria and reducing inflammation. In addition, polyphenols have been shown to boost the immune system and reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes. Given their wide range of health benefits, it is no surprise that polyphenols are sometimes referred to as the "supernutrient." However, more research is needed to determine the optimal intake of polyphenols for human health.

    How to get more polyphenols in your diet

    Polyphenols are a type of micronutrient that has been shown to offer a variety of health benefits. They are found naturally in bright colored fruits and vegetables, but the best way to get a high concentration of polyphenols is through a supplement. If you want to spare your self the calories of consuming large amounts of fruits and vegetables, one can take a supplement like Source of Life Red Lightning, which contains 30 whole foods and super fruits, its packed with antioxidants and polyphenols.

    Polyphenols have been shown to improve heart health, reduce inflammation, and boost cognitive function. In addition, they are believed to play a role in cancer Prevention. While more research is needed to confirm these health benefits, there is no doubt that polyphenols can have a positive impact on overall health. If you are looking for a way to improve your health, consider adding a polyphenol supplement to your diet.

    Subject: Curcumin and Grapeseed

    Smoking, Chemical exposure, pesticides, nutrient deficiencies, to much sun exposure, and over the counter drugs and prescriptions can cause cancer. In the news, there are forever chemical roundup found in our water supply, it is no wonder we are laden with cancer as a society.

    Fortunately, a healthy cancer preventing diet along with natural plant compounds can be far more effective and cost a lot less than conventional care alone.

    Two top suggested natural medicines available right now are curcumin and grape seed extract. These two herbs are an amazing pair, curcumin is a fat soluble herb to fight oxidation on the fatty oil side in the body and grape seed extract is water soluble, making it a great antioxidant to fight oxidative stress on the water side of a cell. Cells in the body are made up of oil(fats) and water. The impact of both together on your health is virtually miraculous.

    Curcumin neutralizes unstable free radicals that take electrons from nearby molecules, and stop them from creating a cascade of damaged cells. It also reduces inflammation reduces inflammation markers in the body to prevent prevent tissue degradation.

    Curcumin has been shown to stop the changes that happen from free radical damage causing normal cells to become cancerous, and tumorous formations, and can even stop cancer from metastasizing or migrating to other parts of the body. Published studies anticancer activity have found that it can suppress breast, prostate, liver, skin, colon and lung cancer cells.

    Curcumin Must Be Absorbed To Be Useful

    One of the challenges or using curcumin for cancer Prevention and treatment is that not all curcumin extracts are easily absorbable into the body. Blending curcumin in Turmeric essential oil enhances absorption and provides the additional benefits of ar-turmerone, a compound in the oil.

    Curcumin Makes Chemo More Effective

    There is big potential for curcumin when used with conventional treatment. BCM-95 curcumin, through research, has shown to sensitize human colon cancer cells to chemotherapy treatment where it would otherwise be resistant to this form of treatment. In some cases tumor recurrence rates can be as high as 60% but when treated with curcumin while under conventional treatment, curcumin boosted the effectiveness of the chemo drug 5-fluorouracil against cancer stem cells.

    Curcumin has great potential in conjunction with conventional cancer treatment and recovery. It has been found that as chemo treatment progresses, cancer cells become resistant to the chemo treatment and the dosage has to be increased as the treatment continues increasing the toxic side effects. Fortunately, curcumin taken in conjunction with conventional cancer treatment can improve the effectiveness of chemo and so the dosage can be lowered reducing the toxic side effects for individuals. This is good news!

    Curcumin Protects The Body During Cancer Treatment

    In a clinical study with curcumin, it showed to alleviate side effects of one of the most common treatments of prostate cancer known as external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) where the doctor uses radiation to destroy tumorous cancel cells. This sort of therapy has many side effects making it a difficult therapy for most men. I often causes sexual dysfunction, digestive problems, urinary tract pain and loss of control. The higher the radiation dosage the more effective the treatment is but this causes significant discomfort, that is why most doctors lean towards lower dosages which makes the treatment less effective.

    The clinical study administered 3000mg of BCM-95 curcumin that is 1000mg x 3 per day or a placebo one week before therapy started and during the treatment length. Each capsule of curcumin contained curcuminoids, curcumin, demethoxycurcumin, bisdemethoxycurcumin, and essential oil of turmeric, this is a full spectrum curcumin supplement.

    At the end of the treatment which lasted 20 weeks the most dramatic difference between the two groups in the study was urinary symptoms. The curcumin group said a 50% decrease in symptoms or side effects of the radiation. Also, researchers noted that the curcumin did not reduce the efficacy of the EBRT.

    One consequence of glaucoma is vision loss or blindness. It is estimated that leafy green vegetables like kale, broccoli and other vegetables are full of minerals and vitamins that prevent diseases like diabetes and heart disease. The question the author wants to answer is whether these leafy vegetables can help in preventing glaucoma. The conclusion of the author is that there is a link between leafy green vegetables and prevention of glaucoma. In fact, it can help prevent the disease. This conclusion was based on a recent study that was conducted by researchers at the Harvard Medical school. Glaucoma is a eye disease that can affect one’s vision leading to vision loss progressively. The common glaucoma is primary open-angle glaucoma. It leads to vision loss without any symptoms or sign. It is estimated that three million Americans are affected with glaucoma and 120,000 people will lose their sight due to having glaucoma. But why is glaucoma produced? This is due to an imbalance in the drainage of the aqueous humor. The researchers analyzed people’s diet and came to the conclusion that leafy green vegetables should be used as a treatment option.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Eating more green, leafy vegetables can assist in decreasing the risk of developing glaucoma.
    • A key to why these vegetables are effective is that they help with blood flow near the optic nerve.
    • These vegetables also help with lowering other diseases like those that affect the heart and diabetes.

    "The study was published in the Journal of American Medical Association Ophthalmology, and it was conducted by researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School."

    Subject: Omega-3s associated with a reduced risk of bleeding in surgery, according to a new study





    A new study called the Omega-3 Fatty Acids for the Prevention of Post-Operative Atrial Fibrillation, also known as OPERA, is calling into question the conventional wisdom that patients who use omega-3 supplements right before surgery are at a higher risk of internal bleeding as a result. The study involved over 1,500 heart surgery patients, and found that those with the highest omega-3 levels in their blood were actually at a lower risk of bleeding. While the exact cause of this is not well understood, it does suggest that more research is needed.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Although fish oil are very popular natural supplements that are good for heart health, in cases of surgey, they might cause blood thinning which is dangerous.
    • A new study has shown that the belief that taking fish oil before surgery is wrong is absolutely erroneous but that it reduces the risk of bleeding.
    • The study that discovered this new finding involved a large group of 1,516 persons who were divided into one group taking omega-3 supplements and another taking placebo.

    "The exact mechanism behind this effect is still not well understood, but Harris suggested that the anti-inflammatory activity of omega-3s might be contributing to this."

    The CDC assesses that more than 5,100,000 Americans have some variant of heart disease, and that 610,000 will die from it this year alone. While the conventional range of treatments mostly relies on medications, micronutrient-based Cellular Medicine provides an alternative. Cellular Medicine pioneer Dr. Matthias Rath has carried out some very promising clinical research involving micronutrient supplementation. Dr. Rath believes that the American diet, medication side effects and modern food handling and production practices mean that many people are deprived of a range of important micronutrients, with very bad consequences for heart health.

    Key Takeaways:

    • A physician named Dr. Rath views heart disease as an early form of scurvy, which results from a Vitamin C deficiency.
    • If your body does not have enough Vitamin C, cracks can form in your arterial walls and your body tries to repair them with artery-clogging plaque.
    • In addition to Vitamin C, people at risk for heart disease should also consume more Vitamin E and B-complex vitamins.

    "With the odds of surviving past the five-year mark currently standing at 50 percent, it’s clear that more effective prevention and treatment options are needed."

    CDC data shows that nearly 41,000 American women died of breast cancer in 2013 alone, making it a leading causing of death among women from all racial groups. However, research indicates a strong association between living in a place with lots of sunshine and lower risk of breast cancer. This is almost certainly due to sunlight’s role in production of vitamin D. Only the type of vitamin D produced by the skin from sun exposure seems to have this kind of strong impact on breast cancer rates.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Cancer is an ancient disease that dates back several years with the earliest known writing on it recorded about 1,600 years before Christ.
    • Among all the cancers, the most common and most feared of them all by many women is breast cancer and this is regardless of ethnicity.
    • While many scientists and institutions are battling hard to find a cure for cancer, there is a vitamin, Vitamin D, that can be used to solve the problem.

    Vitamin K: The Wellness Vitamin

    Vitamin K isn't actually one specific vitamin. There is a whole grouping of fat-soluble cofactors that are intricately involved in the creation of protein in human beings. This grouping is called vitamin K in layperson speak and for everyday purposes. There are actually four cofactors in the K grouping, which has a designated K because of its well-know ability to coagulate human blood.

    K1 is an important part of the chemical process that leads directly to clotting. The other organic K variant, specifically K2 (MK-4) and K2 (MK-7), are used by the body to transport calcium. They have a profound affect on human bone density and in preventing calcium plaque formation on blood vessel walls. K3 is a synthetic variant with possible cancer applications which are being investigated.

    K1 is available to eaters through a wide array of fruits and vegetables and beans and margarine. The K2s can be found in an array of cheeses and in egg yolks,chicken and beef and other non-meat proteins.

    Because it has such an important role to play vis a vis calcium use in the body, it stands to reason that K is significant in the possible prevention of both osteoporosis and cardiac disease. It is becoming clear to scientists that K may also have a role to play in cognition and in increasing insulin sensitivity, thereby ameliorating the effects of diabetes.

    Key Takeaways:

    • The original term vitamin “K” comes from the letter “K” in the word “Koagulation”
    • Scientific research over the past few years has pointed towards the importance of K vitamins in osteoporosis, vascular calcification, osteoarthritis, diabetes and cognition.
    • Vitamin K is essential for good bone health due to its ability to improve bone density.

    "Vitamin K is a name given to a group of fat-soluble vitamins which are considered essential cofactors in humans for the production of various proteins involved in coagulation homeostasis and calcium homeostasis."

    Summer is here, and that means that mosquitoes are out and multiplying at full swing. Fortunately, there are some safe and natural ways to fend off these pesky insects while you're enjoying the warm weather. If you're going to be at a campsite, it is best to opt in for jeans as long as you don't think you'll overheat. Mosquitoes can't bite through thick denim like they can other materials, so this alone should prevent them from breaking through.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Utilizing geraniol candles can eliminate your contact with over 80% of mosquitoes.
    • Be sure to wear denim jeans if you're camping due to the extra protection of the thickened layer.
    • Create barriers to outside entryways in order to try and keep the mosquitoes out altogether.

    "This great invention is not only meant to be used when traveling. In fact, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the use of these nets for covering cribs, strollers, and baby carriers. Some even use it inside their own bedrooms.

    The health benefits of eating pecans

    Pecans originate from the Midwestern part of the US, and their health benefits are shown to be quite substantial. Pecans are high in vitamin E, which causes them to have large amounts of antioxidants properties. They can also help clean and regulate oxidation processes in order to help contribute to the prevention of various cancers. Studies have indicated that consumption of pecans may also have the ability to help those with liver damage, but it has not been proven in human subjects as of right now.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Pecans are rich in nutrients that can help people avoid cardiovascular disease.
    • The phenolic acids in pecans are key in preventing cell mutations, which in turn can prevent cancer from developing.
    • Unfortunately, many pecan recipes require a lot of sugar and corn syrup, but there are recipes available that use natural ingredients.

    "Referred to as Carya illinoinensis in scientific literature, pecans are a member of the Juglandaceae family, which makes it a relative of the hickory and the walnut. Pecans are also considered native to North America; their existence has predated even the earliest human settlements."

    The University of Chicago has recently announced findings that bee pollen has antimicrobial properties, something that practitioners of natural medicine have known for years. It fights bacteria in a different way than conventional antibiotics and with the rising prevalence of antibiotic resistant microbes, this is potentially a game changer. The potential is great but also precarious as pesticide use has drastically decreased the bee population in the last few years. Hopefully science realizes just how important natural remedies are before it is too late.

    Key Takeaways:

    • New research has discovered potential from a compound derived from honeybees. But that ignores the fact that natural medicine has used bee pollen for some time.
    • Years have passed since natural medicine has used bee pollen initially. That has seen the development of new approaches to medicine on the whole.
    • The new antibiotic drug has been in use for some time now too. That has opened up new potential for a market for the antibiotic drug.

    "The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have labeled antibiotic resistance as one of the most pressing public health issues in the world as illnesses that used to be easy to treat become deadly."

    Cherries are amazingly healthful fruit. Not only are they good for you but they taste great too. For many centuries they have been regarded as a garnish but they are much more valuable than that. They provide the body with antioxidants and nutrients. There are 2 different types of cherries - sweet and tart. The sour version is great for cooking as the flavor becomes more rich as it cooks. The sweet version of cherries, also known as Bing cherries, are more commonly eaten raw.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Cherries have a very small amount of time to eat because they easily get diseases
    • The best time to eat and purchase cherries is in August
    • Eating cherries can help prevent or put you at a lower risk of gout

    "Sweet cherries contain fiber, vitamin C, carotenoids, and anthocyanins, each of which may help play a role in cancer prevention."

    Subject: Wheat Germ Benefits the Gut, Heart & Blood Sugar Levels





    Wheat germ contains tons of nutrients, including vitamins and minerals, as well as other antioxidants. Wheat germ, AKA, wheat embryo, is usually stripped away during the manufacturing process of baked goods and other wheat containing products. You can find wheat germ powder or oil in stores. Use the powder to add nutrition to smoothies and baked goods. Use the oil to get your daily dose of Vitamin E for extreme antioxidant protection that could potentially help slow the growth of cancer tumors. Wheat germ contains fiber for regularity, heart health and blood sugar balance. Wheat bran is great too, it contains the outer hard shell of the wheat berry; it is just not quite as nutritious as wheat germ.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Wheat germ is a very nutritious food that is good for your health. It has a significant amount of thiamine, folate, phosphorus, manganese and selenium.
    • Wheat germ is pretty high in antioxidants such as vitamin E.
    • Wheat germ is good for regularity because it contains a considerable amount of fiber. Wheat germ also helps stabilize blood sugar.

    "Getting enough antioxidants into your diet through foods like wheat germ is critical to health, as antioxidants have been linked to prevention of chronic conditions like cancer, diabetes and heart disease."

    Saccharomyces boulardii is a prescription for people that suffer from diarrhea. One girl was prescribed this instead of antibiotics for her stomach issues. A doctor has given advice to not use any yeast while using this medication. It is a probiotic. But, it is not like all of the other probiotics that are on the market. This one uses yeast. It is now that doctors are telling patients to use yeast for their stomach issues.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Saccharomyces boulardii has been known to be effective for the treatment, and even prevention, of diarrhoea for more than three decades now
    • Aside from diarrhoea, accharomyces boulardii is also used for the treatment and prevention of other types of stomach problems as well
    • Saccharomyces boulardii most commonly takes the form of a tablet and the dosage will vary depending on the individual person and the circumstances of what is to be treated

    "In simple terms, Saccharomyces boulardii is a probiotic. However, unlike the commonly available probiotics, which are loaded with beneficial bacteria, it is a yeast that functions just like a probiotic."

    Subject: Is chronic fatigue syndrome an inflammatory disease?





    Chronic fatigue syndrome has been a very controversial thing for many years. Experts have not been able to gain much insight when it comes to the cause of it. There is a new study out that puts forward the suggestion that it is actually an inflammatory disease. There are wide ranging symptoms which makes it quite difficult to diagnose. It is characterized mostly by debilitating fatigue. it is also usually accompanied by pain and difficulties in retaining focus.

    Key Takeaways:

    • New findings suggest the concentration of cytokines in the bloodstream is relevant to the acuteness of CFS/ME symptoms, indicating it could be an inflammatory disease.
    • 17 of the cytokines measured were linked to the degree of severity of CFS/ME. Of these, 13 stimulate inflammation.
    • Symptoms might include sore throat, sensitive lymph nodes, night sweats, muscle pain, digestive issues, inability to think clearly or retain focus.

    "Characterized by often debilitating fatigue, and sometimes accompanied by pain and difficulties in retaining focus, CFS/ME affects between 836,000 and 2.5 million people in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)."
