Artemisinin: A Cancer Smart Bomb

submitted by: admin on 12/28/2016
There is an epidemic of cancer in the world, and this epidemic is not under control. With the signing of the National Cancer Act of 1971 by then US President Richard Nixon, the war against cancer was officially declared. Some 40 years later, we have spent hundreds of billions of dollars on cancer research and the return on this investment has been negligible....

BioEnergy Testing with Frank Shallenberger, MD

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
Bio-Energy testing provides information that helps us understand the biochemistry of the body and how it relates to our energy level, fitness, and thyroid function.            

Breakthrough Research Explains Fatigue

submitted by: admin on 05/27/2015
Until recently doctors believed that the hemoglobin in our red blood cells carried only oxygen and carbon dioxide when we are in good health. However, according to an article published in the April 2015 issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, hemoglobin also carries a molecule called nitric oxide (NO).  It turns out that NO...

Can Hyperbaric Oxygen Boost Brain Repair?

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  Researchers from Tel Aviv University published an article in PLoS ONE in January of 2013 on how hyperbaric oxygen treatment can resuscitate the dormant neurons around a stroke. This area around the stroke, or peri-infarction area may regain function decades after the stroke. The researchers correlated the effects of this treatment with CT and SPECT...

Can Light Therapy Help the Brain

submitted by: admin on 06/03/2015
According to a press release published in Eurekalert in April of 2015, researchers from the Boston VA hospital are studying the effects of infrared and red light on veterans with Gulf War Syndrome. They documented with MRI studies that LED therapy increased blood flow and ATP production in the mitochondria of brain cells. Previous studies published in the June...

Creating Fresh Air Indoors with Jim Karnstedt

submitted by: admin on 09/20/2017
Ions are charged particles, either positive or negative. In the case of air, negatively charged air is healthier. An extra electron on oxygen makes it more available. Indoor air is healthier than outdoor air. Polluted air causes several illnesses.

Exercise Makes You Smarter

submitted by: admin on 09/21/2013
A study done at the Montreal Heart Institute in October of 2012 showed that high intensity interval training made overweight and inactive people aged 49 years old healthier and also smarter! Scientists set up a program lasting 4 months where people exercised twice weekly with interval training and twice weekly with resistance training. They measured cognitive...

Exercise Makes You Smarter

submitted by: admin on 09/21/2013
  A study in October of 2012 at the Montreal Heart Institute showed that high-intensity interval training makes middle-aged people both healthier and smarter. The program was 4 months long and consisted of 2 days a week of interval training and 2 days of resistance training. Cognitive function and physical conditioning improved greatly, showing that...

Fish Oil May Help Prevent Alzheimer's Disease

submitted by: admin on 08/18/2014
A Rhode Island Hospital retrospective study published in the July 2014 issue of the journal, Alzheimer's & Dementia, showed that the participants with normal cognition at the start of the study who reported taking fish oil had fewer signs of Alzheimer's disease. These patients were followed every 6 months with MRI scans. Those people with...

Garlic Protects the Heart

submitted by: admin on 09/22/2013
  Garlic oil may help release protective compounds for the heart during a heart attack, during cardiac surgery, or for congestive heart failure. The active compound is diallyl trisulfide, which can deliver hydrogen sulfide gas to the heart. In studies in mice when a coronary artery is tied off there is 61% less damage when diallyl trisulfide is administered....

Heart Monitoring During Anesthesia

submitted by: admin on 09/23/2013
Only 35% of anesthesiologists monitor cardiac output during surgery. For high risk surgeries this is dangerous as it is critical to know if adequate oxygenation of tissues is being accomplished. It is critical to know the level of hemoglobin in our red cells, as that determines how much oxygen carrying capacity we have. It is also important to know that enough...

How Efficiently Does Your Body Use Oxygen

submitted by: admin on 04/20/2016
Oxygen utilization is different from how much oxygen we take in when we breathe. We can take in 100% oxygen and still not have normal oxygen utilization at the mitochondrial level if our mitochondria are not functioning properly. In an article published in the May 2014 issue of The Townsend Letter, Dr. Frank Shallenberger explains that if our oxygen utilization...

Importance of Exercise for the Elderly

submitted by: admin on 09/20/2017
Exercise is especially critical in the elderly. As we lose our youth it becomes easier to lose our strength and fitness and it takes longer to get our fitness better. Walking 3 days a week does a lot to support healthy aging, better mood, and mental acuity. Exercise allows the body and mind to adapt and do more work with less energy.

Level of Exercise Predicts Quality of Life and Longevity

submitted by: admin on 05/19/2014
A study out of University College London published in the April 2014 issue of BMJ.com showed that low levels of physical function that included grip strength, chair rise speed, and standing balance predicted longevity and quality of life in mid-life.  Scientists followed 5000 people aged 53 for 13 years. There were 177 deaths, and those with...

Never Fear Cancer Again

submitted by: admin on 10/22/2013
Cancer is a symptom of abnormal cellular function that is caused by nutritional deficiencies and toxicities rather than simple genetics. Actually, only 1-2% of cancers a strictly genetic and the rest are caused by epigenetics (lack of nutrients and excessive exposure to toxic environmental chemicals). There is a lot we can do to prevent cancer from developing...

Preserving the Ecology of the World with Amazon John Easterling

submitted by: admin on 10/14/2013
The Amazon is being pillaged. Farming is the biggest reason for deforestation. There are 200,000 species of plants in the rainforest. Preservation of the Amazon is beginning to grow.        

Probiotics Protect the Gut from Radiation

submitted by: admin on 10/14/2013
Washington University School of Medicine published an article in the journal, Gut, showing that taking a probiotic before radiation can protect the intestine from damage in mice. There is no reason that this would be different in humans. This suggests that taking a probiotic with Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG and other strains protects the gut when taken prior to...

Too Much Iron Accelerates Aging

submitted by: admin on 10/17/2013
  Iron storage disease, or hemochromatosis, affects 10-15% of the population, and perhaps even more if you know how to diagnose it. Iron overload increases free radical damage via the Fenton reaction. Hepcidin is a hormone that regulates iron levels by increasing the absorption of iron. The is new research showing that at least experimentally it is possible...

Trees and Human Health Go Together

submitted by: admin on 10/17/2013
  A US Forrest Service published an article in the January issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, that correlated massive loss of trees with cardiovascular and pulmonary deaths in an 18 year study across the eastern and midwestern US. The study included 1296 counties and 15 states where there was a loss of 100 million ash trees from theemerald...

What Test Can Predict Mortality 10-15 Years Early

submitted by: admin on 01/07/2015
In a study out of Johns Hopkins University that was published in the December 2014 issue of the Journal of Molecular Biology, researchers found that the amount of mitochondrial DNA found in blood directly correlated with frailty and longevity 10-15 years before symptoms appeared. Patients were followed over 10-20 years looking at the amount of mitochondrial DNA...
