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
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
I have visited ERs and hospitals during my adventure to regain my health and have had my fair share of scans.
If you've ever had a MRI with contrast before, then there's likelihood that you have some levels of the lanthanide element gadolinium stored in your body and/or brain.
In this post, we will discuss the epigenetic effects of gadolinium and some experimental ways to remove it from the body.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
Although it may have had an important role in scientific history, mercury has been found over the years to cause significant damage to the brain and body.
In this post, we will discuss the different types of mercury, how they affect the body, and what you can do to effectively remove them.Read More
In western society, cadmium (Cd) is found in our everyday environment.
It causes toxic effects to the whole body, including the cells and mitochondria.
In this post, we will discuss how cadmium affects the body and what you can do to protect yourself.Read More
Mesencephalic astrocyte-derived neurotrophic factor (MANF; also known as ARMET or arginine-rich mutated in early stages of tumor) belongs to the fourth family of neurotrophic factors.
It plays a huge role in repairing neurons and cells after oxidative stress, and has promising uses for the future in neurodegenerative diseases (such as Parkinson's Disease).Read More
Recent cancer research has helped us understand how the body detoxes.
By studying upregulated genes in tumorous cells, we were able to find the Nuclear Erythroid 2–Related Factor 2 (NRF2) pathway.
NRF2 is a major transcription factor in detoxing the body and keeping it healthy.
In this post, we will discuss the benefits/downsides of NRF2 activation, as well as why NRF2 may be hurting you more than helping you (and what you can do about it).Read More
Amentoflavone Is Cool (AF) :D
Amentoflavone (AF) is a naturally occurring biflavonoid found in many (over 120) natural plants, such as Gingko Biloba and St. John's Wort.
Klotho may be one of our humans' natural adaptogens by its ability to help regulate cellular stress.
In this post, we will discuss its role in longevity, muscle strength, cancer, cognition, and neurotransmitter balance.Read More
The Herb With The Strongest Polyphenol Count
Chokeberries (Aronia) are powerful anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories as they are very high in polyphenols
Not all artificial sweeteners aka (nonnutritive sweeteners (NNSs) or low-calorie sweeteners (LCS)) are bad.
Use of artificially sweetened foods (ASF) has increased in the past 50 years in the USA and there are clear parallels with changes in the prevalence of being overweight and the rise of obesity. R
Just because something is deemed as "safe" by the FDA, does not make it safe for humans.
In this post, I will break down the effects of artificial sweeteners on the body and give an alternative list to which ones are "safer" or even beneficial.Read More
Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) are perceived as environmental stressors on living organisms.
But since man-made EMFs are a very new stressor for humans, our cells have not developed proper defensive mechanisms against them.
For example, EMFs are classified as possibly carcinogenic (cancer causing) as is arsenic, chloroform, cigarettes, DDT, estrogenics, heavy metals, roundup, etc.
It seems clear that we would not willingly expose ourselves to these other agents, so why would we expose ourselves EMFs?
Is it from digital dementia (using electronics to remember everything for us) or FOMO (fear of missing out)?
In this post, to simplify everything, I'll try to stay away from quantum physics as much as possible. 😉
I'll also show as unbiased of an opinion of EMFs as possible, but I do give you my opinion towards the end.
I'll also provide ways you can protect yourself from the downsides of EMFs.Read More
Arsenic is so common, but it is not talked about much.
It is hidden in our food and supplements, but has devastating effects on the body that we will discuss below.
We will also discuss what you can do to protect yourself from arsenic in our toxic environment.Read More
The Actual Dangers of Taking Proton Pump Inhibitors and What You Can Do About It
Proton pump inhibitors are used very commonly by gastroenterologists for anyone with "stomach" issues.
It is probably the first thing they will give a patient before looking further into what the real cause is.
They have serious short-term and long-term downsides and are destroying our brain and our gut.Read More
Secretory Immunoglobulin A (sIgA) is an antibody secreted by mucosal tissue and represents the first line of defense of the GI mucosa.
It is a component of the adaptive immune system, and is an important player in the protection of epithelium.
It is known to have an important impact on the regulation of microbiota compositionRead More
