Rooibos: Better Than Green Tea For Many Reasons
When I hiked Table Mountain on my last trip to South Africa, the locals told me about an herb that is better than green tea that kept them disease-free. African Bushmen have used this herb since before recorded history, but it’s still pretty rare here in America. Studies on this plant are being done all over the world. But not in the U.S. Because Big Pharma and the FDA aren’t interested in a natural cure that can’t be patented — or profited from. What is This South African Herb? I’m talking about an herb called Rooibos — or red bush in Afrikaans. Rooibos (pronounced roy-boss) provides a whole lot of health benefits. Most importantly, it:1,2 Protects against cancer Reduces heart disease Eases inflammation It even calms down crying babies! Most often prepared as a tea, some people like to compare it to green tea. But it’s much better than green tea and more powerful. Cancer-Proof Your Cells Polyphenols are the antioxidants in plants that help prevent cancer, improve heart function and fight deadly inflammation. Turns out Rooibos tea has almost 50% more polyphenols than green tea! And one of these polyphenols — aspalathin — is only found in Rooibos. The Cancer Association of South Africa calls it “a leading source of anti-cancer compounds.” 3 In a groundbreaking study, researchers fed two groups of mice a carcinogen that causes cancer. They gave the first group plain water to drink. The second group got Rooibos...

ConclusionsOur study reveals the need for targeted patient ‐education about the benefits and limitations of follow‐up. In order to meet increasing costs of cancer care, individualized follow‐up procedures adjusted to risk of recurrence and late‐effects in cervical cancer survivors are warranted.
Conclusions: Spending less time in sedentary behavior and greater physical activity levels, especially vigorous physical activity, are associated with better health-related quality of life in middle-aged women. Vigorous physical activity is associated with a better SF-36 physical component scale, which might mean a reduction in exercise time with similar improvements for women's quality of life.

The Alzheimer's disease research community is nowadays ever more strongly considering chronic inflammation in the brain as a vital part of the progression of the condition. In the amyloid cascade hypothesis, a slow aggregation of amyloid-β over decades (for reasons that are debated) causes ever greater inflammatory dysfunction in microglia, the immune cells of the brain responsible for clearing up metabolic waste such as protein aggregates. That inflammation in turn sets the stage for tau aggregation to take place to a significant degree, causing cell death and severe neural dysfunction. Today's open access res...
ConclusionsAlthough her main symptoms were compatible with NMDARE, MRI findings were more compatible with NMOSD. Therefore, we interpreted her clinical and imaging features as a mixed phenotype of NMOSD and NMDARE. This case report provides additional evidence that double positivity for AQP4 ‐ab and NMDAR‐ab is associated with a mixed phenotype of NMOSD and NMDARE.
AbstractNeuropathic pain (NeP) is an intractable pain caused by a lesion or disease of the somatosensory nervous system. NeP is often challenging to manage because most of the mechanisms remain to be elucidated. Recent investigations in the field of autoimmune neurology have demonstrated that specific autoantibodies against antigens in the somatosensory pathway can cause NeP. Detection of pathogenic autoantibodies in NeP adds to the understanding of the mechanism of pain, which might aid in the development of novel immunotherapies. Therefore, it is necessary to explore novel NeP ‐related autoantibodies to improve the man...
