In this post, we will discuss what parvalbumin is, how it plays a role in chronic illnesses, and what you can do to increase it.Read More
Oxymatrine has shown to have anti-arrhythmic, immune regulatory, and anti-tumor properties and is used in China for treatment of viral hepatitis, cancer, cardiac diseases (such as viral myocarditis), and skin diseases (such as psoriasis and eczema). R
In this post, we will discuss the many benefits of oxymatrine, its natural sources, and its mechanisms.Read More
DDR1 and DDR2 are tyrosine kinase receptors in the extracellular matrix that mediate mediate cell aggregation.Read More
Embelin suppresses cancer, combats inflammation, ameliorates autoimmunity, and destroys many infectious agents.
It also has anti-diabetic, anti-obesity, neuroprotective, and cardioprotective protective effects.
In this post, we will discuss the MANY benefits of embelin, its natural sources, and some synergies of embelin.Read More
Is histamine a villain… or really a superhero?
It really depends on which receptor it works on and where it is in the body.
In this post, we will discuss how to use the 3rd histamine receptor to boost cognition, memory, and attention.
We will first discuss how the histamine receptors work.
Then, we will move onto the benefits (and downsides) of blocking Histamine H3 Receptor's (HRH3 or H3R) activity with natural and pharmacological methods.
Lastly, we will discuss the potential benefits of increasing HRH3 with some agonists, HRH3's mechanism of action, and some important HRH3 SNPs.Read More
Dr. Thomas E Levy and I discuss common misconceptions about disease, specifically: vitamin C, calcium, iron and root canals.Read More
Dr. Denis Wilson and I discuss how to monitor and regulate thyroid function without the need for blood tests.Read More
In this post, we will discuss Homer proteins (mainly homer1), their implicated diseases with dysregulation, and some novel ways to help with homeostasis.Read More
Paraoxonase 1 (PON1) is an enzyme that plays a role in most diseases.
In this post, we will discuss how you can use PON1 to improve overall health, longevity, and detox mechanisms.Read More
The term Humanin (HN) was coined by its discoverer, Professor Nishimoto, to denote the potential of this molecule to restore the “humanity” of patients with Alzheimer’s disease.
Later we have found humanin protects cells from oxidative stress, serum starvation, hypoxia, and other insults as well as also improves cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer's disease.Read More
Protein deglycase DJ-1 (DJ-1), also known as Parkinson disease protein 7 (PARK7) is a master regulator of redox status.
In this post, we will discuss how DJ-1 increases dopamine, enhances mitochondria, and combats most oxidative-stress related diseases.Read More
In this post, we will discuss root causes of Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) and cutting-edge ways to reverse it and the symptoms.Read More
Hypoxia (loss of oxygen) is a major stressor on the body.
On average, one can live ~21 days without food, ~2 days without water, but only a few minutes without oxygen. R
Most studies review long term exposure of hypoxia, but in this post we will discuss what happens to the body on a cellular level when exposed to hypoxia in the short term, such as flying or space travel (in a non-hormetic way).Read More
Calorie Restriction Mimetics (CRMs) are compounds that can induce the same mechanisms as eating less, without having to actually eat less.
In this post, we will discuss how to have your cake (food) and eat it too.Read More
Recent data suggests that chronically low levels of circulating LPS may be associated with the development of metabolic diseases such as insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. R
In this post, we will discuss how LPS affects the body and how to reverse endotoxemia.Read More
When you optimize your body and fix all deficiencies, where is there to go next in enhancing your body?
Well there is hormesis, which is a very powerful tool for enhancing all aspects of your life.
Hormesis, if done properly can strengthen metabolism, longevity, and wellbeing as well as protect you from chronic illness in general.
In this post we will discus what hormesis is, how to do it, and what to watch out for so you can do it properly.Read More
Burdock root has been used for centuries (over 3000 years) in China and in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) for "purifying the blood", but in this post we will discuss the actual ways burdock works on improving the body.Read More
