How BPA Exposure Lowers Vitamin D Levels
What do breast cancer, ADHD, diabetes, male fertility and autism have in common? They're very different conditions, but they've all been linked to a toxic group of chemicals called phthalates that we're all exposed to every day. Phthalates are in everything from food packaging to personal care products to dental fillings. In fact, they're so common in our environment that they're sometimes called "everywhere chemicals." And like so many of the toxins in our environment, phthalates throw your hormones out of whack. They cause estrogen levels to soar in both men and women. Chemicals like these a...

New Alternative Treatments For Kidney Problems
There’s something you should know about chronic kidney disease. Most doctors will tell you there is no alternative treatments for kidney problems besides costly dialysis or a transplant to deal with impaired renal function. What Is Kidney Failure? Kidney dialysis is a treatment that uses a special machine to filter harmful wastes, salt and excess from your blood. But there is another option. It’s called stem cell biotherapy, and it offers new hope to those with this life-threatening disease. You may think your kidneys are just fine and you have nothing to worry about. But consider this… What Causes Kidn...

How to Quit Smoking Naturally
Quitting smoking is one of the best things you can do for your health. But I’m concerned that people trying to quit — and you may be one of them — are using electronic cigarettes. First of all, it won’t work. E-cigarettes do their job by heating liquid nicotine, and turning it into a vapor you inhale. Nicotine is a nitrogen-containing chemical which is made of several types of plants, including the tobacco plant. But nicotine is one of the most addictive substances out there — no matter where you’re getting it from. And secondly, you’re simply replacing one evil with another. Jus...

I Got Mercury Poisoning from Sushi in LA
This study was one more confirmation of what I’ve known for a long time: Mercury can give you cardiovascular disease.iii Although mainstream medicine likes to blame cholesterol for heart disease, science has known for a long time the underlying culprit is inflammation. And the inflammatory effect of mercury on your cardiovascular system can be devastating. Most mainstream doctors believe that heavy metals are naturally removed from your body through your kidneys and liver. But this is far from true. Heavy metals remain in your body for years. Follow these guidelines to keep your mercury levels low: Avoid eating sha...

A new study shows that orally administering the chemical silibinin, purified from milk thistle, slows the ability of colorectal cancer stem cells to grow the disease. When stem cells from tumors grown in silibinin-fed conditions were re-injected into new models, the cells failed to develop equally aggressive tumors even in the absence of silibinin.

Love Your Liver And Turn Back The Years
Today, I want to talk to you about how important it is to be nice to your liver – especially if you want to keep your body younger than your years. And I’m not talking about cutting out that nice bottle of Bordeaux you might share with a special dinner companion on a Saturday night or depriving yourself of that fine, 18-year-old single malt you love to savor every now then. Of course, I recommend that you always drink responsibly. But if you really want to look after your liver, my advice is to drop excess fat. In fact, at my wellness clinic, taking good care of your liver by staying lean is one of my key anti-...

Premenstrual Syndrome
Whilst it is extremely rare for a woman to have a hysterectomy due to Premenstrual Syndrome alone, it can be a contributing factor in overall gynaecological health. Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) (also known as Premenstrual Tension or PMT) is the name given to the physical, psychological and behavioural symptoms that can occur in the two weeks before a woman’s monthly period. It is estimated that almost all women of child-bearing age have some premenstrual symptoms, although it is usually at its worst between the late 20′s and early 40′s. About one woman in every 20 with PMS gets symptoms which are severe en...

Clinical Digest: Hepatitis C and Dietary Supplements
Hepatitis C, a contagious liver disease, is caused by the hepatitis C virus. People can get hepatitis C through contact with blood from a person who is already infected or, less commonly, through having sex with an infected person. The infection usually becomes chronic. Chronic hepatitis C often is treated with drugs that can eliminate the virus. This may slow or stop liver damage, but the drugs may cause side effects, and for some people, treatment is ineffective. Some people with hepatitis C also try complementary health approaches, especially dietary supplements. Several herbal supplements have been studied for hepatit...
