Find out how you can get the upper hand against this frightening modern epidemic…
From time to time, media headlines will warn of the dangers of mercury or lead poisoning. However, many heavy metals, including mercury, lead, cadmium, and aluminum, are poisonous to your health and longevity—and chances are good that you encounter all of them on a daily basis.
Today, doctors, scientists and patients fighting breast cancer are seeing progress in treating and defeating this all-too-common illness: Overall, survival rates are increasing and innovative research continues to refine improvements in treatment, prevention and care. However, in younger women under the age of 40, a new report suggests that incidence rates are climbing — slowly but steadily. This younger group of breast cancer patients is particularly vulnerable, showing more aggressive forms of the disease and the lowest five year survival rates for this type of cancer. Biochemical processes in younger women, combined with late detection of the cancer, may be partly responsible for such relatively poor prognoses.
However, research, education and the accessibility of safer screening methods such as thermography are increasing. These targeted advancements aim to support women of all ages in effective breast cancer prevention efforts and long term health management. (more…)
Tibetan Herbal Formula Can Prevent Root Canals
When we don’t control harmful bacteria in the mouth, these health-robbing microbes can migrate and wreak havoc throughout the body. Gingivitis (gum disease) and its more advanced form, periodontitis, are already implicated in life threatening illness such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Now, research expands on these connections by showing a direct link between poor oral health and cancer. Specifically, pathogenic bacteria from the mouth suppress immunity, spread infection, fuel chronic inflammation and may even trigger harmful cell mutations. (more…)
Music: The Language of Healing
Music is a universal language. That’s because rhythm and harmony are more than musical elements – they are the energetic foundation of life, nature, our universe. Their vibrations have the power to expand the heart, transform the mind and heal. In fact, music is the earliest form of medicine, dating back tens of thousands of years to the first shamanic drums and songs. Today, song-healings are practiced throughout the world as more health seekers learn that singing, playing an instrument or listening to certain music can bring deep healing, peace of mind, spiritual growth and a greater connection to nature.

New Study Demonstrates Natural Agent Protects Against Heart Disease
Santa Rosa, CA (11/20/2012) –
Cardiovascular disease will kill nearly 2.5 million people in the United States this year, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Over time, inflammation, collagen deposition and scar tissue formation can cause blood vessels to stiffen, a process called vascular fibrosis. Though researchers have known that the hormone aldosterone (Aldo) plays a role in this process, the precise mechanisms have been poorly understood.
Now, an international study published in Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology: Journal of the American Heart Association is providing new insights into cardiovascular disease.Particularly significant, the study illuminates how Aldo and the protein galectin-3 jointly contribute to vascular remodeling and congestive heart failure by fueling the processes of inflammation, fibrosis and collagen deposition.
