Your body’s ability to self-heal nerves in the brain can be compromised by a toxic internal environment – will researchers look for the diet connection?

0

by Rita Winters, Natural News:

Nobody can explain the processes of the brain fully, but there are some things we do know about it, such as the brain’s ability to repair itself called neuroregeneration. When the nerve fibers of the brain lose its protective coating, called myelin, the brain sends adult stem cells to regenerate a new myelin sheet. This process is called myelination (or myelinogenesis). Be that as it may, the regenerative processes is halted when the body is in disease.

Myelin is a substance that surrounds the stem, or axon, of nerve cells, providing the nerve cells with an insulating layer. Myelin is essential in the proper functioning of the nervous system. Unprotected nerve fibers are associated with the development of multiple sclerosis (MS), spinal cord injuries, stroke, neonatal brain injuries, and even Alzheimer’s disease. When nerve fibers lose their protective coating, it becomes extremely vulnerable, causing a loss of ability to transmit signals quickly. Direct results of unprotected nerve fibers include impaired cognition, loss of sensation, and loss of movement.

A study published in Nature Communications reports that blood-clotting proteins called fibrinogen ceases myelination, causing further harm to the individual. The study entitled, “Blood coagulation protein fibrinogen promotes autoimmunity and demyelination via chemokine release and antigen presentation,” was conducted by professor of neurology Katerina Akassoglou, Ph.D. from the University of California San Diego and her team of researchers.

Fibrinogen is a glycoprotein produced by the liver, and helps form clots to prevent excessive bleeding. When this protein travels to the central nervous system, it stop the myelin-producing stem cells from continuing its process, resulting in further injury. The researchers are determined to figure out the mechanisms that drive fibrinogen to cause autoimmunity (immune responses against healthy cells and tissues). By eliminating fibrinogen from the process of myelination, the nerve repairs can resume.

Researchers are focused on conducting further studies to understand fibrinogen and demyelination (halting of myelination). The solution to this autoimmune event would prove useful in developing ways to restore regenerative functions in the central nervous system, which could then lead to groundbreaking therapies to help patients suffering from MS and other myelin-related diseases.

What you can do

Some studies note that lecithin (phophatidylcholine), a substance composed of cholineand other lipid molecules, promotes nerve transmission and can function as a source of choline. Choline is a member of the B-complex family of vitamins which helps the process of myelination. Various studies explain that myelination can be aided by a proper, balanced diet. Thus, regular intake of choline- and lecithin-rich foods may promote nerve health. These foods include eggs, fatty cuts of meat, peanuts, sesame seeds, flaxseeds, and oats. Other foods related to promotion of myelination include fish oil, soy beans, wheat germ, liver, Brussels sprouts, shrimp, and shellfish.

Prepping for Normal People: How to Prep When You’re NOT an Epic Wilderness Survival Guru

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

Did you ever read a blog post on a prepper site and sigh, because the person writing the post seemed to have been born a survivalist?

In your mind’s eye, you could envision them at the tender age of six, weaving a snare from some vines that they wisely assessed not to be poison ivy, catching a rabbit, skinning and gutting it with a pocketknife, and cooking it over a fire they started with two sticks that they rubbed together, while wearing their little elementary-school-sized camo outfit.

Discouraging, isn’t it?

The great big Autism obfuscation

by Jon Rappoport, No More Fake News:

“How is a self-contained world built? Well, you can take a major situation which has an obvious cause, and then relabel the situation with a new name and say the cause is unknown. Then you can claim you’re looking for the cause, and you can keep looking and stalling for 50 years.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

First of all, there is NO definitive evidence that autism is a specific condition with a single cause.

If you doubt this, look up the definition of autism in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, and try to find a definitive lab test that leads to a diagnosis of autism. There is no such test.

U.N Secretary ignorant of 5G and WiFi exposure risks promises to Consult with World Health Org that issued warnings years ago

by Shepard Ambellas, Intellihub:

Sometimes reality bites really hard.  This video featuring the U.N. Secretary confessing his ignorance about wireless radiation exposure risks has already been covered in detail by GreenMedInfo.com and TakeBackYourPower.net. It’s worth re-sharing again for many reasons – one of them being that the secretary promised to consult with the World Health Organization (WHO) about this.  This is good because the WHO has been issuing warnings for many years already about exposure risks. For 20 years, insurance companies have refused to cover wireless radiation exposure risks too.

Confirmed: Broccoli improves digestive health and protects against toxins, reducing inflammation

0

by Michelle Simmons, Natural News:

A new study has discovered a new health benefit of broccoli: It improves digestive health and protects against toxins, according to a Science Daily report.

Researchers from Pennyslvania State University examined how cruciferous vegetables, such as broccolicauliflower, and sprouts, can improve digestive health and protect the gut from toxins.

“There are a lot of reasons we want to explore helping with gastrointestinal health and one reason is if you have problems, like a leaky gut, and start to suffer inflammation, that may then lead to other conditions, like arthritis and heart disease,” explained Gary Perdew, lead author of the study.

Perdew and his team conducted an experiment on two groups of laboratory rats: one with a higher ability to retain a healthy balance in the gut flora and protect against toxins and one with a lower ability. They added broccoli, which accounted for about 15 percent of the diet of the rats in both groups. Then, they added a substance that caused digestive problems to the meals.

The scientists suggested that cruciferous vegetables contain indole glucosinolates, an organic chemical compound. When digested, it breaks down into other compounds such as indolocarbazole in the stomach. These substances bind to and stimulate a receptor in the lining of the intestines known as aryl hydrocarbon receptor, which sustains gut health and provides barrier function. Furthermore, this may lower the risk of developing diseases, such as different types of cancers and Crohn’s Disease, brought about by inflammation in the lining of the gut.

Results showed that the mice with a higher binding ability can endure digestive problems linked with a leaky gut and colitis compared to the group of mice with a lower binding ability.

“Keeping your gut healthy and making sure you have a good barrier functions so you’re not getting this leaky effect would be really big,” Perdew said.

He explained that good barrier functions help protect the intestines from toxins and harmful microorganisms. At the same time, nutrients are allowed to pass into the system.

For the equivalent in humans, consuming about 3.5 cups of broccoli per day is needed to get the health benefits of broccoli, according to the researchers.

In addition, Perdew suggested that a cup of brussels sprouts could give the same level as they contain three times as much indole glucosinolates as broccoli.

“We used a cultivar – or a variety – with about half the amount of this chemical in it, and there are cultivars with twice as much,” he said.

The study, published in the Journal of Functional Foods, may pave the way for future studies on how people with digestive conditions such as colitis can benefit from eating broccoli without having digestive problems, as they are often advised not to consume too much fibrous vegetables.

More on the leaky gut syndrome

Leaky gut syndrome is said to be a root cause of different health problems. The proponents of leaky gut syndrome believe that the bowel in the lining can become irritated and leaky due to different factors such as overgrowth of yeast or bacteria in the gut, a poor diet, and the overuse of antibiotics, according to the U.K.’s National Health ServiceMoreover, undigested food, bacterial toxins, and germs can pass through the leaky gut wall and into the bloodstream, which triggers the immune system and leads to inflammation.

Why broccoli is undeniably the most amazing vegetable for your health

0

by: Derek Henry, Natural News:

Yep, your mother got it right, again. She knew intuitively that broccoli was good for you, and perhaps “forced” you to eat it as a child. Well, you may want to call your mother and thank her for introducing this amazing vegetable into your life at an early age, because it could quite conceivably be the most potent vegetable you can consume for improved health.

Why broccoli needs to be a staple in your nutrition

Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable that was first grown in the Italian province of Campania, and the Ancient Romans immediately saw it as highly valuable due to it’s potent healing effects.

Since those times, broccoli consumption has increased significantly (over 940 percent) in the West over the past twenty five years, most likely due to the growing evidence of how good it is for our bodies.

But really, just how good is broccoli? Let’s start with it’s incredible nutrient profile:

  • A rich source of vitamins C and K (135 percent and 116 percent of RDA, respectively, for a one cup serving)
  • A great source of vitamins A, B1 (thiamin), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6, B9 (folate), and vitamin E
  • A great source of minerals, including potassium, manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, chromium, selenium, iron, calcium, and zinc
  • An excellent source of fiber
  • An extremely rich source of antioxidants (isothiocyanates, glucoraphanin, sulforaphane) and phytonutrients

For the most benefits, it’s best the broccoli is raw or lightly steamed, but it is amazing in soups as well.

So when you take this nearly complete food and introduce it in some way to your body on a daily basis, some amazing things can happen. Some well known benefits of broccoliinclude:

  • Supports healthy colon function
  • Promotes proper bowel function and regularity
  • Mitigates oxidative stress and damage from free radicals
  • Promotes healthy aging
  • Supports your body’s natural defense system
  • Supports normal gut health, strong bones, and healthy joints
  • Supports heart and liver health
  • Supports healthy hair and skin
  • Boosts energy levels
  • Improves recovery time after strenuous exercise

(Learn more about broccoli and other superfoods at Superfood.news.)

Even more exciting is that these benefits can be cranked up even higher, conveniently, by introducing broccoli sprouts to your diet. This hikes up the enzymes, antioxidants, and phytonutrient (50 times more!) content and makes the nutrients more bioavailable. You can simply throw them in a salad, smoothie, steamed vegetables, and more.

Of course, there is a small risk of food poisoning with raw sprouts, so you may want to take necessary precautions to ensure they are not contaminated by knowing your source and cleaning them appropriately.

Crash diet found to REVERSE Type 2 diabetes in three months

0

by Tracey Watson, Natural News:

Type 2 diabetes is one of the greatest health scourges of modern society. The American Diabetes Association reportsthat close to 10 percent of the American population – or around 30 million people – are currently battling this disease. Diabetes is also one of the leading causes of death, and costs the country around $245 billion annually in direct medical costs and lost productivity.

For years, doctors have claimed that diabetes is an irreversible condition that can only be treated with dangerous chemical medications to control blood sugar levels. On the other hand, complementary health advocates like Natural News founder/editor, Mike Adams, have insisted for years that the condition is reversible through simple lifestyle changes.

Now, an exciting new study led by researchers from Glasgow University and Newcastle University in the U.K., and published in the medical journal The Lancet, has confirmed what Adams has been saying all along: Even advanced type 2 diabetes is entirely reversible through weight loss.

The study, which involved 298 patients with type 2 diabetes, was presented at the International Diabetes Federation congress in Abu Dhabi earlier this month.

Half of the participants were given weight-loss suggestions and left to continue to manage their condition with medication, while the other half were taken off all medications and put on a restrictive 853 calorie per day diet for three months.

A year after the study ended, three quarters of the patients who had been on the restrictive diet were still drug free, and an average of 46 percent were no longer considered to be diabetic. (Related: Discover the latest medical breakthroughs at DiabetesScienceNews.com.)

Once you break those figures down a bit more, the results become even more impressive, though.

Among those who lost 33 pounds (15kg) or more, 86 percent were no longer considered diabetic, along with 57 percent of those who lost 22 pounds (10kg), and 34 percent of patients who lost 11 pounds (5kg).

“These findings are very exciting,” said lead author, Professor Roy Taylor of Newcastle University. “The weightloss [sic] goals provided by this programme are achievable for many people.”

Type 2 diabetes develops when too much fat accumulates around the pancreas and liver, interfering with insulin production and causing blood sugar levels to spike. The researchers believe that when diabetic patients lose a substantial amount of weight, these fatty deposits around the liver and pancreas also decrease, allowing the body to function normally once more.

The reason overweight people develop diabetes is that they are carrying too much visceral fat – the fat that accumulates around the stomach.

“Get rid of that fat, and most people can get their blood sugar levels back to normal without medication,” Professor Taylor explained.

Though the study participants were put on a very restrictive diet, this is not a “magic bullet” for reversing diabetes. The researchers simply recognized that losing weight rapidly is less daunting for patients than trying to lose it slowly over a longer period of time.

“Doing it slowly is torture,” said Professor Michael Lean of Glasgow University. “Contrary to the belief of many dietitians, people who lose weight quickly, more emphatically, are more likely to keep it off long term. What doctors haven’t recognised is how much people with Type 2 diabetes hate having it. In my experience people will jump at the diet given the chance.”

Mike Adams himself faced a type 2 diabetes diagnosis several years ago, but managed to turn the situation around through basic lifestyle changes, including:

• Cutting out all refined sugars: This includes hidden sugars and refined carbohydrates.

• Including exercise in his daily routine: The secret here is daily exercise – it’s more important to walk for 30 minutes every day than to do huge amounts of sporadic exercise.

• Drinking in the sunshine: Most Americans – over 70 percent of whites, 80 percent of Latinos and Asians, and 97 percent of African Americans – are vitamin D deficient. According to the Vitamin D Council, “[T]here is some evidence that vitamin D may help improve resistance to insulin, increase sensitivity to insulin, and more effectively control blood sugar levels.”

Do You Know What We Are Breathing In From Weather Geoengineering Efforts?

by Catherine Frompovich, Activist Post:

Air is one of the PRIMARY elements of life; without it for about three minutes, we cannot survive.  If air is such an important biological and functional life component, why are weather geoengineers messing around with it?

They’re not, according to ‘official source’ denials.

Well, think again, since many independent and non-cabal-financially-sponsored “non-consensus scientists” are finding STUFF in the air we breathe that should not be there unless placed for nefarious reasons.  What a mouthful!  Is there any documentation to substantiate what I say?  But of course!  Would I say it, if there were none?

Well, I’m going to explain some things readers may find doubtful, interesting and even frightful, but cannot deny once you stop playing around with your iPhones, etc. and look up and study the sky, which no longer is the crystal clear gorgeous blue it used to be in my youth, since I was born during the Depression years.

Nano particles and Smart Dust [is] being absorbed by all of us via inhalation of chemtrail fallout and from contaminated grocery store food (including organically grown food) where the crops pick up and absorb the same Nano particles and Smart Dust that we are breathing in. In addition, food sources are intentionally being sprayed with Nano technology. I first became aware of “nanobots” as a component of chemtrails in 2005 when the topic of Morgellons first surfaced on the internet. These nanobots were somehow integrating themselves with biological functions inside people’s bodies producing these colored fibers and wire-like threads that would ooze out of lesions on the skin. I had no idea why some people produced the fibers and had the sensation of insects crawling under their skin, while other people had no symptoms at all. [1]

According to Tony Pantalleresco,

[W]e’ve been breathing in Nano particles in the atmosphere since the 1960s and they’ve been adding Nano particles to food since the 1970s. The expresion [sic] “Nano particles” refers to the size of the particles. A particle 1 micron wide is equivalent to one millionth of one meter, while 1 Nano is equivalent to one billionth of one meter. Our bodies can handle particles in the micron range, but Nano size particles in the 1-100 Nano range especially, cause a great deal of damage to the body.  [1]

Tony should know; he’s been making videos about them!  Tony explained them in this podcast.

He explains that many thousands of Nano particles are now residing in EACH human cell of all human beings (including you) and are integrating themselves with our biological functions to re-program our body (and our DNA) into an Android-like hybrid, that is part human biology and part Artificial Intelligence robotics. These Nano particles inside our bodies are activated by (and programmable from a distance) using radio frequencies (microwaves) and ELF waves. That means we are ALL being set up for a 21st Century version of enslavement employing electronic mind-control and body-control coercion harassment (which is what Targeted Individuals who call into the Ella Free podcasts are experiencing and talking about). [1]

Furthermore, there is much speculation the neurotoxic chemicals in all vaccines are part of that artificial intelligence robotics program!

There’s an amazing, astounding and seemingly unbelievable indication of what Tony contends, as a result of his research, being found in human bodies, and he demonstrates that using his arm and a special Anti-Nano Concoction protocol he created.

Towards the end of the video, he immerses his arm in the anti-Nano bucket (after first adding vinegar, distilled water, salt, DMSO and a capful of olive oil) and following a few minutes, you can see the Nano metal dust particles coming out of the skin and sticking to the floating oil globules. Jump ahead to 1:22 to see the Nano particles coming out of his skin. [1]

Study explores various natural thermogenics and identifies the ones that best aid in weight loss

0

by Edsel Cook, Natural News:

Thermogenic agents are edible substances that turn nutrient calories into heat energy that the body uses to regulate its internal temperature. Researchers suggest that taking these agents as supplements can help reduce weight and keep it to a healthy level, thereby lowering the risk of obesity.

Obesity is often traced to problems in adaptive thermogenesis, the changes that result from different food or exposure to cold temperatures. Fortunately, thermogenesis can be adjusted by consuming certain foods and supplements. Some foods, in particular, function as stimulant thermogenic agents since they invigorate the central nervous system, while others are called non-stimulant thermogenic agents, given their stimulating effects on the cardiovascular system.

The One Technology That Will Rewrite Medicine

As co-founder of The Daily Reckoning, I wanted to take the reins today… to extend you a Merry Christmas… and a happy New Year.

And to thank you for sticking with us as we close out yet another year of daily reckonings.

The Daily Reckoning has reached millions of readers… inspired thousands more… and became the nucleus of a world-spanning company that now sports offices in nearly two dozen countries.

2018 will be our 19th year covering the crazy worlds of markets, politics and everything in between… in short, that bizarre creature known as man.

All great drama is derived from the passions of men (and women) and how they interact with one another. Fear, greed, mob mentality and insanity are just a few of the fascinating human emotions we discuss around here.

Today, I want to discuss another subject we watch closely here at our Baltimore HQ:

The race between the innovator and the bureaucrat…

“I get up in the morning,” our friend Juan Enriquez told us during an interview one day late in 2011, “I read the paper and see all the bad things going on with the debt, deficits, wars and the economy. Then I step into a lab and see all the potential breakthroughs the scientists I work with are about to unveil.”

We first met Juan while studying government debt (of course, what else?) and financing of breakthrough technologies. We were fascinated by the story of two guys who lined up the private funds to map the human genome, pitting their project against a litany of governments, university and private endowments who’d secured billions of dollars in grants over a 20-year period to do the same.

Juan Enriquez and the now-renowned entrepreneur Craig Venter were those two guys. Their project, based not far from our office here in Maryland, mapped the first strand of human DNA not in 20 years… but in less than 20 months.

For good measure, Enriquez and Venter mapped the second strand of human genome roughly six months later. Oh, how the government grant writers, university science chairs and “nonprofit” endowment do-gooders were miffed!

Many a cushy, tenured career path was upset, derailed and overturned by two relatively unassuming ne’er-do-wells… who had the gumption to think entrepreneurs have a role in science.

Enriquez’s greatest fear at the time was that the political world would overwhelm the entrepreneurs — and the financial markets they depend on — before their discoveries could get put to good use.

In fact, Juan’s bipolar view — debt, deficits and war versus inspiration, innovation and achievement — inspired the theme of our 2013 Agora Financial Investment Symposium in Vancouver: “A Tale of Two Americas.”

“When you look at the world,” a symposium regular said at the time, expressing a similar sentiment:

“As Many As A Million Calves Lost In Nebraska” – Beef Prices In The U.S. To Escalate Dramatically In The Coming Months

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

According to Agriculture Secretary Sunny Purdue, there “may be as many as a million calves lost in Nebraska” due to the catastrophic flooding that has hit the state.  This is not a rumor, this is not an exaggeration, and this is not based on any sort of speculation.  This number comes to us directly from the top agriculture official in the entire country, and it means that the economic toll from the recent floods is far greater than most of us had anticipated.  You can watch Purdue make this quote on Fox Business right here, and it is important to remember that this number is just for one state.  It is hard to imagine what the final numbers will look like when the livestock losses for all of the states affected by the flooding are tallied up.  This is already the worst agricultural disaster in modern American history, and the National Weather Service is telling us that there will be more catastrophic flooding throughout the middle portion of the nation for the next two months.
