There's a new drug that effectively treats autoimmune diseases such as MS, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia and Crohn's.There's a new "miracle drug" that effectively treats autoimmune diseases including multiple sclerosis (MS), lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia and Crohn's. The FDA-approved, well-studied drug, naltrexone, is used for addiction treatment in dosages of 50 mg and up. In a tiny dosage, only 3 to 4.5 mg, Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) has been found to relieve the symptoms and stop the progression of many autoimmune diseases - long term, without side effects and for less than a dollar a day. How is LDN so effective for a variety of different autoimmune conditions, from MS to fibromyalgia? According to the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association, 1 in 5 Americans has some type of autoimmune disease. The cost of treating these common autoimmune diseases has exploded to more than $100 billion a year. Award-winning health author and blogger, Julia Schopick, shares case studies on LDN, research findings and valuable information about this lifesaving miracle drug.
This type of testing can be the difference between effective disease management and needless risk of sudden cardiac death.MIRISK and MIRISK VP are a new set of genetic blood tests that can help identify the major causes of transmitted diseases that affect the heart and vasculature (the system that delivers blood to the entire body). The MIRISK and MIRISK VP assessments identify individuals who are at risk of a cardiac event within the next five years. This type of testing can be the difference between effective disease management and needless risk of sudden cardiac death. Genetic testing can help determine a successful course of treatment for the patient, as well as identify any familial testing needs generated from a positive result. In many instances the first indication that an individual is affected is sudden cardiac death; hence testing is key to preventing a catastrophic event. This information can lead a patient to make successful lifestyle changes and pursue therapy to live a healthy and successful life, despite the disease. Dr. Doug Harrington, MD, has over 25 years of experience in the commercialization of healthcare technology and is the CEO of Aviir, a biotechnology company dedicated to the prevention of cardiovascular disease through innovative laboratory tests.
Regenerative medicine is revolutionizing health management, offering potential solutions for a myriad of diseases and conditions.Regenerative medicine is revolutionizing health management, offering potential solutions for a myriad of diseases and conditions. Regenerative medicine is the emerging process of replacing (regenerating) human cells, tissues or organs in order to restore and establish normal function with just a small piece of your own skin tissue. Regenerative medicine may become the most powerful tool to improve the human condition by finding ways to boost the body's innate ability to repair itself. You now have the opportunity to save your skin cells at a cell bank. A cell bank is a facility that stores stem cells of a specific genome for the purpose of future use in a product or medicinal needs. Cells are taken from a small sample of the skin and are then reset to the beginning state of the cell production. These skin cells are processed into stem cells that are frozen and then are stored for future use to repair damaged organs, rebuild tissue, and fight disease. Dr. André Choulika, is the founder of the company, Cellectis Group, and worked closely with Sceil in developing regenerative medicine. He discusses what this new development means for the future of medicine and the type of human conditions which could be treatable.
Recent research suggests that curcumin, the main compound in the spice turmeric, may be effective in fighting depression.Antidepressants come with significant side effects, such as nausea, weight gain and headaches. While some side effects go away after a few weeks, others persist and worsen to where it is serious enough to make you stop taking the medication. Finding the right medication can be a lengthy and costly process. What is ever more worrisome, is some studies raise questions about their effectiveness. A recently published clinical trial involving major depressive disorder (MDD) demonstrated that BCM-95 Curcumin had the same effectiveness of the prescription drug fluoxetine (the generic name for Prozac) but without negative side-effects. The trial was conducted from 20 volunteers who had been diagnosed with major depressive disorder. These volunteers either received BCM-95 Curcumin (500 mg capsules twice daily); fluoxetine (20 mg daily) or a combination of the two. The trial found that Curcumin worked as well as the prescription drug. This is the first human clinical evidence that curcumin (BCM-95 Curcumin) may be used as a therapy for patients with MDD. Curcumin is the main compound in the popular spice turmeric. Curcumin is both a potent anti-inflammatory agent and a powerful stimulator for neurogenesis. Ajay Goel, PhD, is Director of Epigenetics and Cancer Prevention at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, TX. He shares the clinical trial results, if you should be adding turmeric to your recipes, what supplement works best and if there are any side effects.
