(Natural News) Inflammation is the cause of almost all disease, according to an article published on the website WakingTimes.com. Fortunately, there are natural ways on how to avoid it.Inflammation is the body’s response to heal after an injury, defend itself against foreign invaders, like bacteria and viruses, and repair damaged tissue. Without it, the wounds or injuries could become infected and may even lead to a fatal condition. It is usually characterized by redness, heat, swelling, pain, and loss of function. There are two types of inflammation – acute and chronic. When an inflammation occurs only for a few days, it is called acute inflammation. However, when the inflammation is long-term or lasts for months or years, it is called chronic inflammation. This means that the cells in the body are constantly under attack. Chronic inflammation occurs in response to unwanted substances in the body like the toxins from cigarettes or an excess of fat cells. A person who … [Read more...] about Science confirms: Inflammation is the underlying cause of almost ALL disease – Here are some natural ways to avoid it
(Natural News) Camel milk gained steam during the last few years as a potential superfood against diabetes, and a new study published in the African Journal of Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicines demonstrated that the dairy product might indeed bolster diabetes management. A team of researchers from Egypt’s premier universities and health agencies examined rat models of diabetes to carry out the study.The researchers studied 75 male albino rats that were divided into five equal groups. The scientists designated two groups as either negative or positive diabetes controls. The team also gave two other groups camel milk, while the last group was given the diabetes drug metformin. The experts supplemented the rats with camel milk for two consecutive months. The research team then ran a series of assays to examine the animals’ serum glucose, leptin, and insulin levels as well as liver, kidney and lipid … [Read more...] about Camel’s milk found to restore insulin activity in diabetics, making it a natural treatment for the disease
While the exact cause of Parkinson's disease is unknown, the development of the condition is influenced by many genetic and environmental factors. Doctors have identified how mutations in some genes can be passed down through generations and may lead to an increased risk of Parkinson's disease. Parkinson's disease is a condition that affects the brain, particularly the areas that control movement and balance. It can cause worsening neurological changes that often start with tremors and muscle rigidity. It also increases a person's risk of depression and dementia. In this article, learn about how genetics affect the development of Parkinson's disease, and when to talk to a doctor about family history and genetic testing. An estimated 15 percent of people with Parkinson's disease have a family history of the condition. Doctors have identified genes that are passed down from family members that seem to increase a person's likelihood of developing Parkinson's. They have also identified … [Read more...] about Is Parkinson’s disease passed on through genetics?
Early-onset Parkinson's occurs when a doctor diagnoses the disease in a person 21 to 50 years old, according to the American Parkinson Disease Association. While a Parkinson's diagnosis can be devastating at any time of life, being diagnosed with the disease at an early age can significantly impact a young person's quality of life and that of their family. Currently, there is no cure for the disease. Because doctors most often diagnose Parkinson's disease in people around 60 years old, it is likely that a much younger person with early-onset Parkinson's disease could remain undiagnosed or misdiagnosed for some time. Early-onset Parkinson's may also progress differently to the more traditional form of the disease. Being aware of symptoms and risk factors may help a person get the treatments they need as early as possible. According to the American Parkinson Disease Association, an estimated 10 to 20 percent of those with Parkinson's disease are diagnosed at an early age. This amounts to … [Read more...] about What is early-onset Parkinson’s disease?
(Natural News) A sugar alternative that was deemed “healthy” appears to be not so healthy after all. A new study discovered that the artificial sugar additive known as trehalose, which is found in many food products, potentially played a role in the increase of a deadly superbug called Clostridium difficile, which is a bacterium that causes infection, leading to severe diarrhea and death – and is one of the most prevalent hospital-acquired infections in the United States.Trehalose naturally occurs in mushrooms, honey, and seafood. As a food additive, it is artificially made from corn starch using several bacterial enzymes. It is commonly found in cream cakes, fruit juices, and jams. This sugar alternative can also be found in dried and frozen foods, nutrition bars, fruit fillings, instant noodles, rice, and white chocolate.A team of researchers from Baylor College of Medicine in Texas found that trehalose caused the rise of two hyper-virulent genetically … [Read more...] about Sugar alternative is NOT so healthy after all: Trehalose, a substitute used in many processed foods, is giving rise to a superbug, severe disease, study warns
