Early brain 'signs of Parkinson's' found | BBC News

Scientists say they have identified the earliest signs of Parkinson's disease in the brain, 15 to 20 years before symptoms appear.

Scans of a small number of high-risk patients found malfunctions in the brain's serotonin system, which controls mood, sleep and movement.

The King's College London researchers say the discovery could lead to new screening tools and treatments.

Hormones


A hormone is a signaling molecule produced by endocrine glands, orchestrated by the brain, that is carried in the blood to target organs for regulation of physiology.

Taking an exogenous hormone (from an outside source) will create negative feedback. This means the brain registers the hormone and responds but shutting down the gland normally involved in production.

And remember, the USA health care system are utterly stupid and wrong, but all the world isn't US. Most countries have doctors that doesn't earn money by prescribing certain brands. We have a system where the medicin are what is prescribed, and you get the brand that has the best price. If you want to have a certain brand, you have to pay extra for that.
And yes, we also have problems with people that have way tom many medicines, but we are aware of the problem, and there are procedures set to fix that. But yes, more need to be done.

DYSMENORRHEA


dys·men·or·rhe·a
noun: painful menstruation, typically involving abdominal cramps

This condition is very common. The pathomechanism (cause) has two main components: abnormal blood flow patterns and hormone system dysregulation. When blood flow is poor, the uterus will cramp as it struggles to shed the lining. The quality of blood will be clumpy and dark showing a pattern of blood stagnation.

Although each patient is unique and requires an individualized approach, here is a base prescription I have used with great outcomes:
- Paeoniae Radix alba
- Atractylodis macrocephalae Rhizoma
- Chuanxiong Rhizoma
- Angelicae sinensis Radix
- Poria
- Alismatis Rhizoma

Note: the primary function of this prescription is to nourish and move the uterine blood.

Lymphatic System

Our Immunity Rock Star


The lymphatic system consists of three parts:
- vessels: the network of drainage pathways that carries the lymph fluid
- fluid: interstitial fluid inside the vessels is called lymph
- nodes: part of the lymphoid organ system included with spleen, thymus, adenoids, and tonsils

The lymphatic system is involved in immunity and defense. Lymph is very similar to blood plasma but contains lymphocytes and other white blood cells which are the troops of the immune system.

Swollen lymph nodes are a response to illness, infection, or stress and are a sign that your lymphatic system is working to rid your body of the responsible agents.
Understanding our body and how to improve or repair its normal function is essential in treatment of chronic conditions and in maintaining optimal health.

Battlefield Acupuncture


The US Military has been using it for decades. Here's an interview with Dr. Erik Koda, M.D. retired from the Air Force as a Colonel and was in charge of his medical team who implemented acupuncture directly in the field of battle. He discusses the functionality of how it was conducted and how years of experience made a believer out of him because of the miraculous results.

Cambridge scientists create world’s first living organism with fully redesigned DNA | The Guardian

Scientists have created the world’s first living organism that has a fully synthetic and radically altered DNA code.

The lab-made microbe, a strain of bacteria that is normally found in soil and the human gut, is similar to its natural cousins but survives on a smaller set of genetic instructions.

The Brussels sprout is a member of the Gemmifera Group of cabbages (Brassica oleracea).


They contain high levels of vitamin C and vitamin K, with moderate amounts of B vitamins, such as folate and vitamin B6; essential minerals and dietary fiber exist in moderate to low amounts.

They also contain sulforaphane, a phytochemical superfood, which is produced when the enzyme myrosinase transforms glucoraphanin, a glucosinolate, into sulforaphane upon damage to the plant (such as from chewing), which allows the two compounds to mix and react. Although boiling reduces the level of sulforaphane, neither steaming, microwave cooking, nor stir frying cause a significant loss.

The United States Senate and House of Representatives passed S.J. RES. #366 during the 101st United States Congress, which President Bush signed on October 30, 1990 (creating Public Law 101-473), designating Doctors' Day as a national holiday to be celebrated on March 30.

New type of dementia identified | BBC News

Millions of elderly people have a form of dementia that has been misdiagnosed as Alzheimer's disease, according to researchers.
One expert called it the most important dementia finding in years.
The condition, limbic-predominant age-related TDP-43 encephalopathy, or Late, shares similar symptoms to Alzheimer's, but it is a distinct disease, the journal Brain reports.
It may partly explain why finding a dementia cure has failed so far.
There has been quite a bit of good news relating to dementia recently. Let's hope this news is good.

Routine sense of smell tests could be used to spot signs of dementia | The Guardian

The sense of smell is known to deteriorate with old age, and research has previously found this might indicate underlying health problems that could result in a greater chance of death in the near future.

Cause of cancer is written into DNA of tumors, scientists find, creating a ‘black box’ for origin of disease | Impact Lab

The cause of cancer is written into the DNA of tumors, scientists have discovered, in a breakthrough which could finally show how much disease is attributable to factors like air pollution or pesticides.

Until now the roots of many cancers have proved elusive, with doctors unable to tease out the impact of a myriad of carcinogenic causes which people encounter everyday.

Even with lung cancer, it is not known just how much can be attributed to smoking and how much could be linked to other factors, such as living by a busy road, or inhaling pollutants at work.

But now scientists at Cambridge University and King’s College London have shown that tumors hold information like a ‘black box’ pointing to the cause of disease.

Vitamin C Flush for the Gut

Detoxify Your Gut


Warning: Stay Close to the Toilet

This simple detoxification method is aimed at eliminating toxic bowel microbes. It's best to be under the supervision of a professional especially if there are specific concerns or conditions of the intestines however, for the average person this is a fairly simple and generally safe way to clean out.

Image/Photo

Description


Basically, you take vitamin C in powder form until you reach "bowel tolerance" which means you get watery stool (so don't plan on going anywhere). This is useful for those who are gassy, bloated, and having signs of an irritated bowel. Especially when stools have become foul smelling (with foul smelling gas) and sticky (harder to wipe). If the bowels get bad enough the tongue coating will become thick and yellow.

Image/Photo

The vitamin c flush will not fix the digestive issues that likely caused the disruption but it will reduce harmful overgrowth of bacteria, yeast, and other nasty elements that are collectively referred as dysbiosis.

Basic Protocol:

  • It is best to use a 100 percent l-ascorbate, fully reduced, buffered mineral ascorbate form of vitamin C.
  • Take 1/2 teaspoon mixed with 2 ounces of water (first thing in the morning on empty stomach).
  • Repeat every 15 minutes until there is gurgling in the intestines (loose stool soon to follow).
  • If not response after 4 doses then double the dose and continue (some people need as much as 2 teaspoons per dose if their bowels are especially toxic).
As with any nutritional protocol, check with your medical doctor before proceeding.

Gene-silencing: 'New class' of medicine reverses disease porphyria | BBC News

Doctors have used a new type of medicine called "gene silencing" to reverse a disease that leaves people in crippling pain.
The condition, acute intermittent porphyria, also causes paralysis and is fatal in some cases.
The novel approach fine-tunes the genetic instructions locked in our DNA.
Doctors say they are "genuinely surprised" how successful it is and that the same approach could be used in previously untreatable diseases.
