How to treat Lyme disease naturally, with diet, herbal supplements, vitamin C

(Natural News) The official stance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Lyme disease is that it is a tick-borne illness that it completely treatable by a short round (typically no more than three weeks) of antibiotics. While true in broad strokes, this position is hardly useful for those who do not...

Conclusions: In the treatment of lumbar disc herniation, Tuina and acupuncture were superior to traction or Chinese herbs, and the effectiveness of traction was the worst. However, considering the limitations of this review, more high-quality trials, especially those comparing Chinese herbs with the other three interventions, should be carried out in the future to further confirm the current findings.

In this study, to examine the effect on the restoration of immune cells and balance in the immune system, we utilized a cisplatin-induced immunosuppression mouse model. Mice were injected intraperitoneally with cisplatin, an immunosuppressive anticancer, and then received oral doses of 100, 250, and 500 mg/kg of HemoHIM for 14 days. The HemoHIM prevented the cisplatin-induced loss of body and organ weight. In terms of innate immunity, natural killer (NK) cell activity and phagocytosis increased in the HemoHIM group compared to the cisplatin control group. The HemoHIM group also showed a significantly higher expression of T...

Authors: Zhang JF, Liu J, Gong GH, Zhang B, Wei CX Abstract Mongolian medicine RuXian-I is composed of 30 Mongolian herbs, which is a traditional Mongolian recipe for clinical treatment of breast "Qi Su Bu Ri Le Du Sen" disease (hyperplasia of mammary glands, HMG). Based on the previous study, this dissertation further explores the therapeutic mechanism of RuXian-I on estrogen-induced HMG in rats. RuXian-I had no effect on the body weight and food intake of HMG rats and had no toxic effects on the five organs (heart, lung, spleen, and kidney). RuXian-I reduced the diameter and height of nipple, organ inde...

In this study, we identified a population of prepronociceptin-expressing cells in the central amygdala (PnocCeA) that are activated by palatable food consumption. Ablation or chemogenetic inhibition of these cells reduces palatable food consumption. Additionally, ablation of PnocCeA cells reduces high-fat-diet-driven increases in bodyweight and adiposity. PnocCeA neurons project to the ventral bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (vBNST), parabrachial nucleus (PBN), and nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS), and activation of cell bodies in the central amygdala (CeA) or axons in the vBNST, PBN, and NTS produces reward behavio...

The results indicated that ASM effectively enhanced the activity of superoxide dismutase, ascorbate peroxidase, catalase and the content of reduced gluta...

The EAs were practically stable at the sourdough and dough preparation stages; however, significant reductions (α = 0.05) were noted after the thermal processing stage (baking): on average, the EA concentration dropped by 22%, from 3970 ± 5...

The contribution of grain structure to the rate and proportion of starch digested during human foregut digestion was estimated using in vitro digestion of breads differing in grain particle size and content. The bread sampl...

Cuencas Barrientos, Fernanda Mozzi, Micaela PescumaAbstractSelenium (Se), which is present as SeCys in seleno-proteins, is involved in cancer prevention, thyroid functioning, and pathogen inhibition. Se is incorporated in the diet through Se-containing foods. Some lactic acid bacteria (LAB) can biotransform selenite (toxic) into Se-nanoparticles (SeNPs) and Se-amino acids. To exert their beneficial properties in the host, bacteria should survive the harsh conditions of the gastrointesti...

Bello-Pérez, Apolonio Vargas-TorresAbstractMicrocapsules were prepared using enzyme-treated corn starch with 16 and 20 h of hydrolysis time (ETCS 16h-GA and ETCS 20h-GA) and coated with gum (GA). Microcapsules made only from GA were used as control. The increase in hydrolysis time caused an increase in the number and size of pores on the corn starch. The percentage of total starch decreased with the increase in hy...
