The majority of mainstream medical doctors are woefully ignorant, do not read the science nor try to unders...

This study demonstrates that small peptide domains derived from native protein amelogenin can be utilized to construct a mineral layer on damaged human enamel in vitro. Six groups were prepared to carry out remineralization on artificially created lesions on enamel: (1) no treatment, (2) Ca2+ and PO43- only, (3) 1100 ppm fluoride (F), (4) 20 000 ppm F, (5) 1100 ppm F and peptide, and (6) peptide alone. While the 1100 ppm F sample (indicative of common F content of toothpaste for homecare) did not deliver F to the thinly deposited mineral layer, high F test sample (indicative of clinical varnish treatment) formed mainly C...

Forgive me if I am posting in an inappropriate forum for this topic; I presume my question would be most relevant here. I receive psychiatric care myself and I've observed others receive the same treament. Not once have I ever heard of a mental health care professional prescribing a device such as Fisher Wallace Cranial Simulator/similar devices nor discussed this with his/her patients. It is used to treat anxiety, depression, insomnia, and chronic pain such as arthritis by promoting the... Why isn't Fisher Wallace Cranial Simulator and similar devices prescribed/discussed more?

Your body can heal itself, which is pretty miraculous when you sit back and think about it. If you suffer a cut or infection—or if a disease, allergen or virus finds its way into you—your immune system reacts by sending specialized white blood cells to the affected area. These white blood cells can repair damage, stop the spread of infection or illness and in some cases eradicate the intruder. This whole response is called inflammation. “Inflammation is an activation of cells and cell-derived components that have the job of fighting invasions, and in some cases just sponging up or clearing out damaged cel...

Authors: Menter MA, Armstrong AW, Gordon KB, Wu JJ Abstract Plaque psoriasis is increasingly recognized as a multisystemic disease whose most common comorbidities include psoriatic arthritis, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, overweight/obesity, inflammatory bowel disease, and depression. The presence of such comorbidities affects the therapeutic choices for clinicians. Patients often visit dermatologists more frequently than they do other clinicians, so it is incumbent upon dermatologists to recognize and address early signs of psoriatic comorbidities to prevent further deterioration and improve their pa...

Abstract Physical inactivity is one of the most prevalent major health risk factors, with 8 in 10 US adults not meeting aerobic and muscle-strengthening guidelines, and is associated with a high burden of cardiovascular disease. Improving and maintaining recommended levels of physical activity leads to reductions in metabolic, hemodynamic, functional, body composition, and epigenetic risk factors for noncommunicable chronic diseases. Physical activity also has a significant role, in many cases comparable or superior to drug interventions, in the prevention and management of>40 conditions such as diabetes mellit...
