Colonoscopy to Diagnose Colon and Bowel Disease Shown Accurate

Colonoscopy to Diagnose Colon and Bowel Disease Shown Accurate A study on Virtual colonoscopy was published in Wednesday’s issue of New England Journal of Medicine. It’s the largest study to estimate the accuracy of the technology; the research was sponsored by the National Cancer Institute and had 2,600 men and women tested at 15 medical centers. Dr. Daniel Johnson of the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona and colleagues are the ones who initiated and took...

Tips for Overcoming Insomnia

Sleep is vital to health and well-being. Despite this, millions of people suffer from sleep problems. Insomnia, the repeated difficulty of falling or staying asleep, is experienced by nearly everyone at some point in his or her life, although it becomes more common as we grow older. If you're experiencing sleep problems, it's time to make some changes in your routine to ensure that you get a good...

Insomnia: When Counting Sheep Doesn’t Work

Occasional periods of sleeplessness affect us all at some time or another, and it can be very frustrating to deal with. But what if you are constantly faced with this problem every night as you lie in bed? Or do you fall asleep only to wake up shortly and are unable to go back to sleep? Do you go many nights -- sometimes even weeks -- with little or no sleep? If so, you are facing a serious...

Stretching in Warm Water

Hydrotherapy is a term that may sound familiar. However, many people don't understand the various forms and the benefits. Here's a look at Watsu. Have you noticed the occasional grumpy body-builder who walks funny? Or the step enthusiast whose high-pitched shoulders match her highly strung personality? Maybe you've wondered if all that virtuous aerobic or macho weight-bearing exercise you do...

Breath Counting: A Great Way to Start Your Day

Imagine the body is merely an extension of the mind. If you're mentally unbalanced, you will be physically unbalanced as well. Get in control. You may have a weaker appetite; trouble falling asleep or waking up, more aches and pains and less energy in general. But like two connected batteries, you can use the mind to charge the body and vice versa. If you incorporate some simple directive...

New Human Cloning/ Embryonic Stem Cell Technique May Solve Ethical Debate

New Human Cloning/ Embryonic Stem Cell Technique May Solve Ethical Debate The term cloning is used by scientists to describe many different processes that involve making duplicates of biological material. In most cases, isolated genes or cells are duplicated which is used to produce an embryo from which cells called embryonic stem (ES) cells. The cloning debate was reopened with a new twist late in 1998, when two scientific reports were published regarding the...

Hypothesis of Auto-Immune Disease Part-8 Of 8

Hypothesis of Auto-Immune Disease Part-8 Of 8 DISRUPTION IN THE PROCESS OF GENETIC RECOMBINATIONS THAT DISRUPTS THE DIVERSTIY OF ANTIGEN RECEPTORS: The mini-genes are put together in different combinations as the lymphocytes are developing from the stem cells in red bone marrow and the thymus gland. This process is what gives the B and T cells their unique set of mini-genes that codes the transcripts and transulations for its unique antigen...

Hypothesis of Auto-Immune Disease Part-7 Of 8

Hypothesis of Auto-Immune Disease Part-7 Of 8 THE DISRUPTION IN THE FEVER PROCESS: Fever would normally be present at an inflammation or infection to intensify the healing effects. But interleukin-1 is the hormone that regulates the immune response that activates fever, and interleukin-1 production is suppressed by the excessive amount of cortisol that is being released in the 2nd stage stress response that is triggered by the "cell...

Hypothesis of Auto-Immune Disease Part-6 Of 8 NERVE AND BRAIN DISEASES: DISEASES OF A MALFUNCTIONING NERVE SYSTEM: COULD A COMBINATION OF INHIBITED CALCIUM IONS, OXYGEN DEF. LYSOSOMES, AND IRON DEFICIENCY IN THE CELLULAR METABOLISM, AND THE IRON DEF. RED NUCLEUI, BE THE DISRUPTIONS IN THE PERIPHAL NERVOUS SYSTEM THAT IS CREATING THE SYMPTOMS IN MYASTHENIA GRAVIS, PARKINSONS, ALZHEIMER'S, MS and THE HIV BREACH OF THE BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER? If...

Hypothesis of Auto-Immune Disease Part-3 Of 8

Hypothesis of Auto-Immune Disease Part-3 Of 8 HEART DISEASE: Heart disease: In my opinion high blood pressure is not the original problem that is only the internal adjustment. I believe it starts out as a nutrient disruption that the body perceives to be a low blood pressure problem and high blood pressure is the negative feedback systems' adjustments in an attempt to correct the low blood pressure caused by the oxalic and phytic acid...

Hypothesis of Auto-Immune Disease Part-2 Of 8

Hypothesis of Auto-Immune Disease Part-2 Of 8 THE DISRUPTION OF THE THYMUS IN THE IMMUNE RESPONSE: The perception that the Thymus is over -active in auto-immune disease can be explained as follows. The Stress Response to the cell starvation activates the cortisol in excess, which suppresses the IL-1. So the IL-1 is not present to activate the resting inactive helper T cells. This disrupts the Major histocompatibility complex antigens (MHC)...

Hypothesis of Auto-Immune Disease Part-1 Of 8

Hypothesis of Auto-Immune Disease Part-1 Of 8 HYPOTHESIS OF AUTO-IMMUNE DISEASE FROM A COMMON PERSPECTIVE : Adding two nutrient inhibiting acids to about 90% of the processed food and then consuming them in excess, causes a clog in the filter between the blood that carries the nutrients and the cells that have to have the nutrients to survive. The clog results in "cell starvation". As the cells begin to die the internal negative feedback...

Hypothesis of Auto-Immune Disease Part-5 Of 8

Hypothesis of Auto-Immune Disease Part-5 Of 8 AIDS: IS THE DISRUPTION THAT ALLOWS THE AIDS VIRUS TO GET A TOE HOLD THE EXTENDED LONG TERM REACTION OF THE 2ND STAGE STRESS RESPONSE TO THE CELL STARVATION, BROUGHT ON BY THE OXALIC AND PHYTIC ACIDS BLOCKING THE NUTRITIONAL DELIVERY SYSTEM? TRANSMISSION DISRUPTION: The initial disruption that would allow the easier transmission of the AIDS virus would be the disruption in the storage of glycogen...

Hypothesis of Auto-Immune Disease Part-4 of 8

Hypothesis of Auto-Immune Disease Part-4 of 8 DIABETES: Diabetes: I believe diabetes does not start out as a high blood glucose problem, I believe that is only the internal adjustment. I believe it is a disruption in the metabolism of (ATPs) cellular energy that the internal systems perceive to be a low glucose problem. The internal systems are triggered that not enough ATPs are available so they assume the glucose used to make the ATPs is...

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger Point Therapy Research by Drs. Janet Travell and David Simons, authors of "The Trigger Point Manual," has shown that trigger points are the primary cause of pain at least 75 percent of the time and are a factor in nearly every painful condition. Trigger points, a type of muscle stiffness, are the result of tiny contraction knots that develop in muscle and tissue when an area of the body is injured or...
