Every year, companies in the US produce 100 billion pounds of plastic for all kinds of products and packaging.

If you've ever been in a state of sheer panic, someone may have told you to "take a deep breath" to calm yourself down. This is good science-based advice. A cluster of nerve cells in the brain links breathing to different emotional states. When we’re very anxious, we breathe fast and unevenly, while slow, deep, [...]

These Scientists Say Alzheimer’s Drugs Have Failed Because of This

In the 1990s, the "amyloid hypothesis" provided a new and simple explanation for the cause of Alzheimer's disease. The idea was that beta-amyloid proteins build up to form plaques that damage brain cells. The brain plaque theory caught on bigtime and quickly became conventional wisdom.

Researchers at the University of Utah think they may have found a way that might – just might – slow the progress of Alzheimer’s disease – no drugs, foods or supplements required.

By |2018-11-12T14:22:42+00:00November 12th, 2018|Natural Health|

Any trip to the hospital can stress you out. The hubbub of people constantly in motion. The noises of the medical machinery. Anxiety about your health problems...
