    A beautiful image of a horrible disease process: Neurotoxic β-amyloid plaques, stained blue, along with neurofibrillary tangles, are the hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease. Neurologists know far more about the pathogenesis of this disease than in Dr. Alois Alzheimer's day, but treatment options are still limited. ...

    Relative proportions of acute viral hepatitis in the U.S. Courtesy of Science Press Internet Services and AstraZeneca.


    Natural medicine has much to offer individuals with hepatitis C (HCV) infection and other chronic liver disorders. And that's a good thing, because the burden of HCV, in terms of individual morbidity and socioeconomic cost, is growing at a disturbing rate. Antiviral pharmacotherapy, while clearly better than it was a decade ago, still leaves much room for improvement.

    HCV infection is the most common cause of chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular cancer in the US (Liang ...

    Think of adrenal fatigue as the "waiting room" for type-2 diabetes, hypothyroidism and heart attack. As a disease classification, it hangs out there with other "pre-" conditions like"pre-diabetes" and "pre-hypertension," and is a strong indicator of which direction a patient's health is headed; namely, down.

    The exhaustion of the body's ability to react to the signals from the brain and pituitary gland inevitably contributes to disease states like type-2 diabetes, hypertension, and hypothyroidism. Because adrenal fatigue affects a cluster of body systems, treatment is incomplete if it just ...

    A quick search on the PubMed database reveals nearly 1,000 scientific papers linking blood viscosity to cardiovascular disease events and risk factors.

    In fact, Blood Viscosity increased blood viscosity is the only biological parameter that has been linked with all of the other major cardiovascular risk factors, including high blood pressure, elevated LDL cholesterol, low HDL, type-II diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity, smoking, age, and male gender.

    This led to the proposition, which is becoming more widely accepted, that blood viscosity is the unifying parameter for CVD. Increased viscosity may be the reason why the other biochemical, metabolic and demographic factors are important, and provides the underlying mechanism through which these other factors convey the pre-inflammatory insult to the arterial walls (Sloop GD. Med Hypotheses 1996; 47:321-5).

    Simply put, blood viscosity is the thickness and stickiness of blood. It is a direct measure of the ability of blood to flow through the vessels. It is the critical biophysical parameter that determines how much friction the blood causes against the vessels; how hard the heart has to work to pump blood; and how much oxygen is delivered to organs and tissues. Importantly, high blood viscosity is easily modifiable with safe lifestyle-based interventions.

    In past decades, nearly all blood viscosity research was performed using primitive manual viscometers. New testing methods are making it much easier and more practical for us, as clinicians, to screen all of our patients, including those who are asymptomatic. We can use this biomarker for earlier and more accurate detection of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease risk.

    SpicesWhat if there were an outbreak of a largely preventable syndrome that caused more than 20,000 deaths and 100,000 hospitalizations every year; a scourge that indiscriminately struck people of any age, from teens to elders, often without warning symptoms?

    As a doctor, you would expect to hear about it. Moreover, you'd expect that health care professionals would be doing everything possible to contain it.

    But what if you learned that your medical colleagues were unwittingly facilitating spread of this disorder, that perhaps you yourself had unknowingly exposed patients to the pathogen, or turned a blind eye as they put themselves at risk?

    There is such a disease. It's called overuse of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory ...

    Every year, hundreds of billions of dollars are spent to discover new synthetic pharmaceutical agents and technologies intended to improve health; yet the burden of chronic disease continues unabated. Simply put, these interventions do not address the root causes of the most troublesome diseases. In fact, many pharmaceuticals place additional burden upon the very metabolic buffering systems they are intended to help.


    Rather than working with the body to build up metabolic reserve, ...
