Pomegranates, Cholesterol, Hormones & Cancer

2019-06-28T14:40:44-06:00

Pomegranates are as close to a miracle food as Mother Nature gets. Pomegranates protect your heart, safeguard your estrogens, “sensitize” insulin receptors better than many diabetic drugs without nasty side effects, slow down aging, and fight cancer. A pomegranate a day keeps the Mack truck of disease away! My grandmother often said, in her very thick Russian accent, “If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is too good to be true.” This does not seem to be the case with these juicy purple fruits and kernels (arils).   Pomegranates fight against lots of bad stuff.  Anti-inflammatory Anti-oxidant Anti-bad [...]

Can we self-treat depression by counting our blessings (gratitude exercises)? What does science say?

2019-01-17T18:57:23-06:00

What can you do to self-help your moods that may help you avoid medication for depression, or lower your dose, or get you singing in the shower again, or yelling at your mate less? These are called positive activity interventions (PAIs), and they are now found to offer a safe, low-cost, and self-administered approach to managing depression. PAIs offer hope to individuals with depressive disorders who do not respond or have access to adequate medical therapy, or perhaps even for those that want to try to get off meds. More than 100 million people around the globe suffer from depression. An [...]

Did you know that when you loose weight you boost your immunity?

2018-10-12T16:41:48-06:00

Extra fat cells harbor viruses. And they are inflammatory molecules, which block the action of your immune system. Losing weight and getting to a more ideal weight, boosts your immune function. It reduces pain as much of pain is inflammation run amok. When you carry just 5 or more extra pounds of fat, you put an extra inflammatory load on all your tissues. PLOS 9.24.15

2019-01-17T18:58:43-06:00

Inflamed Brain Our brain is our most important organ. Many of us aging folks are now more worried about outliving our wits, than getting cancer. Much of brain aging is actually brain inflammation. Inflamed brains age faster, and make us worried and depressed. What can we do about it? And is this real, or bogus? Emory Health Science researchers wanted to know, too. They found that 1/3rd of depressed people have inflamed brains. These people have elevated blood inflammatory markers and the inflammation can be distinctly viewed on brain imaging. Wow! No more hiding inflamed brains, we can see you! Brain [...]

Gut Aging Effecting Aging in General – the new inflammaging’ theory of aging by Berkson

2019-01-30T13:34:10-06:00

The gut is the mother of our health. As well as digesting food, the gut plays a central role in programming our immune system. It also provides an effective barrier to bacteria that could make us ill. Immune cells that line the gut work to maintain the integrity of this barrier.  The gut wall immune cells also maintain the “correctness” of beneficial bacteria within and their “commensal conversations” that direct our immune system to stay alert. The gut wall also helps combat invasion into our inner cells, by pathogenic, non-beneficial bacteria and microbes.   Scientists and clinicians on the Norwich Research [...]
