How to Boost Your Stem Cells
A California man named Kris Boesen was completely paralyzed after breaking his neck in a terrible car crash last March. But now he can brush his teeth and hug his family again… He's even started to regain sensation in his legs. And it's all because of a simple procedure he underwent about a month after his accident: stem cell therapy. During Kris' procedure, researchers at the University of Southern California injected 10 million stem cells into his spinal cord. Within two weeks, he could wiggle his fingers. Three months later, he was able to feed himself, write his name and operate his wheelchair. His re...

Mangosteen: The Cancer-Fighting Superfruit
  If you're a woman with a family history of breast cancer, your doctor may recommend you start taking a toxic chemo drug like tamoxifen to lower your risk of developing the disease. Even if you have no signs or symptoms of cancer. Tamoxifen is what's known as a chemopreventive agent. That's a fancy phrase that means it's something that prevents cancer from forming. But its track record isn't all that impressive. Trials found that for every 1,000 women who take the drugs, only 21 to 35 cases of cancer would be prevented. And the side effects are downright terrifying. Bone pain, blood clots, increas...

The Effects of B12 Deficiency
Metformin is Big Pharma's pride and joy when it comes to diabetes. Over 120 million diabetics take this drug to try to control their blood sugar. Even anti-aging doctors have gotten on the bandwagon. They think metformin is a wonder drug. My colleagues keep asking me when I'm going to start prescribing it. Short-term, drugs can be a lifesaver. But long-term, the track record is not so good. Long term, like so many of Big Pharma's "cures," metformin creates more problems than it solves… Patients often stay on this drug for 10 years… 20 years… and more. That's a long time to be on an...

Improve Your Mood With Turmeric Root (Curcumin)
"Dr. Sears," C.R. asked me, "I know curcumin is good for treating a lot of things, but can it improve someone's mood?" This morning, one of the women on my staff, C.R., came into my office to talk to me about her 15-year-old son. He'd been irritable and moody and sleeping a lot lately. Most mornings, he'd miss the bus to school and then stress about being late. But today, he was up on time with his backpack packed and a smile on his face. C.R. even heard him whistling in the shower! And he was at the bus stop 10 minutes early. C. R. started taking curcumin supplements a few weeks ago. She had no...

Controlling Cancer: How To Boost Your NK Cells
If your doctor puts you on a statin for cholesterol, prepare to be on it for life. If you have high blood pressure, you can be sure you'll be filling that prescription forever. Diabetic? You can look forward to decades of metformin. Big Pharma seems to have a "treatment" for every disease. But they rarely have a "cure." You see, the longer you take their "medicine," the more money they make. And now they're trying to do the same thing with chemotherapy drugs. A group of researchers from Oregon and the U.K. just created a new drug delivery system for cancer. It's called "metronom...

Can yoga and breathing really help 'cure' depression?
Conclusion Many people report finding yoga and breathing exercises to be relaxing and helpful for their mental health. This study provides some evidence the practice might help people with symptoms of depression. But flaws in the study mean we can't be sure this is the case. The lack of a control group is the big problem. For some people, depression simply gets better over time. For others, taking part in a class, being able to talk about their mental health, or getting out and doing some gentle physical exercise may improve their symptoms. We don't know whether yoga specifically made a difference because the study does...

Second-generation antidepressants and cognitive behavioural therapy are both viable choices for initial treatment of major depression
There is a pressing need to generate clear hierarchies of the benefits and harms of available treatments to implement optimal clinical practice. Second-generation antidepressants (SGAs) and cognitive –behavioural therapy (CBT) have proven efficacy in the treatment of major depression.1 However, comparative benefits and harms of SGAs and CBT for the initial treatment for major depression remain unclear. Amick and colleagues carried out a systematic review and evaluated 11 randomised control led trials to compare the benefits and harms of SGAs and CBT for the initial treatment of major depressive disorder in 1511 adult...
