This Revelation May Shake You to the Core

When I was a little girl, my grandmother kept a box of scented talcum powder on her dressing table. On special occasions, she would open the box and put a little powder on the puff, and daub it on my shoulders, arms and legs. When I was a young mother, I would take my babies out of the bath, towel them off and pat them with baby powder. When I think of that scented powder, it brings back such lovely memories.

Why Animal-Based Omega-3s are Best

According to a recent article by Joseph Mercola, M.D., animal-based omega-3 fats are critical for heart health. Dr. Mercola believes maintaining a sufficient level of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) may be one of the most important nutritional priorities. People need both DHA, a 22 carbon omega-3, and ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), an 18-carbon omega-3 fat. Both plant and animal omega-3 fats are important, but the DHA present in seafood is the type most associated with heart health and other vital health benefits.

A New Therapy for Depression

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has come to be considered the “gold standard” in treating patients with depression through psychotherapy. Because therapists using CBT must undergo extensive training, the National Health Service in the U.K. often has a long waiting list for patients seeking mental health treatment for the condition. Now a new study shows that another type of psychotherapy, behavioral activation therapy, is equally effective.

Study Shows Body Clock Shuts Down Inflammation During Sleep

Scientists report that systemic inflammation underlies most disease processes of the human body. Inflammation is the body’s natural response to injury, and in that context, it is a healthy reaction. For example, a cut in the skin triggers inflammation, and your body produces white blood cells that rush to the site of the cut to heal the skin. But when inflammation persists, it can cause problems such as arthritis, diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

Is Your Mouth the Key to Your Health?

Healthy teeth and gums impact more than your appearance.  Health studies have identified links between oral health and overall health. Researchers are unsure whether the links are a matter of cause and effect or simply correlative, but there is no doubt the condition of your mouth is relevant to the health of your entire body.

Rogue Protein Implicated in Multiple Sclerosis

Scientists have made a breakthrough discovery in understanding multiple sclerosis (MS), a disease that attacks the central nervous system. In a study published in Frontiers in Neurology, researchers from the University of Surrey have found a misfolded, or “rogue” protein in MS. This discovery indicates MS has more in common with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and ALS than previously recognized, as earlier research has demonstrated a similar rogue protein plays a role in those diseases. They hope this discovery will lay the groundwork for greater insights into MS, and new treatments for neurodegenerative diseases.

New Discovery Revolutionizes Brain Science

For decades, scientists believed they had completely explored the physical structure of the human body. But recently, researchers at the University Virginia School of Medicine have discovered that the brain is directly connected to the immune system by vessels that were previously unknown. This discovery may create dramatic changes in the way we understand and treat diseases like autism, Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis.
