There’s no doubt antibiotics have saved a lot of lives. But because they’ve been overprescribed for so many years we’ve ended up with a slew of health problems. For one thing, overuse of antibiotics wreaks havoc on your microbiome… That’s your body’s ecosystem. Your microbiome has 100 trillion or so bacteria, viruses and fungi. It affects just about every organ and body system. Some of these gut bugs cause disease and infection. But other good bacteria are called “probiotics.” They boost your immune system. They help you digest your food and turn it into vitamins. But in...

Conclusion The widely accepted use of acetaminophen pain relievers, such as Tylenol, has been shown in scientific studies to deplete levels of our bodies’ master antioxidant, glutathione. Parents should question the popular notion that dozens of vaccine doses in infancy are safe, and they should certainly research the damaging effects acetaminophen can have on the developing brain.

(Natural News) One hundred years ago in America, there was hardly a case of cancer, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, ADHD, autism, Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease. All of those “diseases” are really just disorders (since they’re not contagious), most of which happen to be preventable and curable with an organic, plant-based...

When our son Nicholas was 5 weeks old, we brought him and his twin sister Emmy to our pediatrician for what we thought was a routine well visit. Though the twins had been born four weeks early, Nicholas had only been in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for a few days with low blood sugar and jaundice. Both babies seemed healthy and we had no major concerns. However, as we watched our pediatrician listen to Nicholas’ heart and pulse, we realized something wasn’t right. He told us the pulse in Nicholas’ lower extremities was weaker than the pulse in his upper body. He suspected Nichola...

Addiction and drug overdoses claim one life every four minutes in America. In the time it takes to order a latte, someone dies—from an illness that is highly treatable. The addiction crisis is the result of social prejudice; criminal justice policies that incarcerate people with addiction, instead of giving them treatment; healthcare policies that make it difficult or impossible to get medical help for substance use disorders; ignorance; and “abstinence only” drug policies that are ineffective and backwards. The fact is, people who struggle with substance use disorder are treated like second-class citize...

ConclusionsOur findings support rapidly screening infants with a positive NBS for SCID, but without SCID, for 22q11.2DS even when typically associated features such as CHD are absent, particularly when B cells and NK cells are normal. Moreover, direct NBS for 22q11.2DS using multiplex qPCR would be equally, if not more, beneficial, as early identification of 22q11.2DS will obviate a protracted diagnostic odyssey while providing an opportunity for timely assessment and interventions as needed, even in the absence of T cell lymphopenia.

As scores of red-clad registered nurses stride through the halls of Congressional office buildings this week, they’ll have some other people on their minds. The postal worker who told us his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer and whose disability coverage expired after six months and had to cover thousands of dollars more out of pocket for her treatment. The 57-year-old California contractor who now pays $22,000 a year for health insurance for himself and his wife. “I’m OK with paying high insurance premiums if it helps provide health care for others, but I am mad as hell at the prospect of paying even...
