Selenium and Cancer Rates

Selenium and Cancer Rates

I am always very grateful for the good information shared by Dr. Mercola but I found this report on selenium particularly interesting. He really gives a nice breakdown on the different types of selenium and how the different forms of selenium have been found to reduce the risk of some cancers. I hope you will take a few minutes to read this valuable information! By Dr. Mercola Micronutrients are incredibly important and vital to your health, but are you getting enough, and perhaps even more importantly, the right form? Mark Whitacre, Ph.D., is a leading expert on one of the most important micronutrients, selenium. Selenium is a trace element a Swedish chemist, Baron Jöns Jacob Berzelius, discovered almost 200 years ago. Today, modern scientists recognize it as an essential mineral for human health, with potent anti-inflammatory, antiviral and anti-cancer activity. There are fewer than 100 selenium Ph.D. biochemists in the world. Whitacre received his master’s degree in nutrition at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, in the late 1970s — a time when selenium was quickly becoming a hot topic. “After I finished my master’s degree at Ohio State, I went to Cornell University to get my Ph.D. in nutritional biochemistry and to study under Dr. Gerald F. Combs Jr. [who] was probably the leading authority in selenium research, and probably still is,” Whitacre says. During his Ph.D. research at Cornell in selenium biochemistry, Whitacre researched the biochemical role of selenium in pancreatic cells. At the time, researchers were just starting to discover the biological necessities for selenium. Selenium in Health and Disease Prevention Selenium serves two very important and interrelated...

Is There a Link Between Gut Health and Parkinson’s Disease?

Is There a Link Between Gut Health and Parkinson’s Disease?

I was so encouraged to read this article from science reporter, Robert Ferris. I believe the studies we are seeing on gut health will not only give us a clue on protecting the brain from the devastation of Parkinson’s disease, but from many other debilitating diseases as well. Another great reminder that our microbiome is the key to overall good health! Report: For the first time, researchers have found a functional link between the bacteria in the gut and the onset of Parkinson’s disease, one of the world’s most common debilitating brain disorders. A team of scientists from several institutions in the United States and Europe showed how changing the bacteria in the guts of mice affected the manifestation of Parkinson’s symptoms — even including bacteria taken from the guts of humans with the disease. The findings suggest a new way of treating the disease: The best target for treatment may be the gut, rather than the brain. The researchers hope the new information can be used to develop “next generation” probiotics, more sophisticated than the sort of probiotics found on the shelves of health food stores today. “One can imagine one day, maybe in our lifetimes, patients will be prescribed drugs, and in the pills will be the bacteria that protect them from disease or even maybe treat their disease symptoms,” said Sarkis Mazmanian, one of the researchers on the team and professor of microbiology at the California Institute of Technology. The scientists published their findings Thursday in the journal Cell. Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder where brain cells accumulate excessive amounts of a protein called alpha-synuclein...

Micronutrient Therapies: Modern Living With Kathy Ireland®

Micronutrient Therapies: Modern Living With Kathy Ireland® Features Hardy Nutritionals® I was so pleased to see David Hardy interviewed by Kathy Ireland. Both have been great champions for health for many years! Here is the interview. David Hardy, founder of Hardy Nutritionals® and formulator of Daily Essential Nutrients and Daily Self Defense™ micronutrient therapies sat down with one of Forbes Top 50 Most Successful Women, Kathy Ireland, on the set of Modern Living With Kathy Ireland® as sponsored programming, to discuss the scientific evidence and clinical applications for Hardy Nutritionals® products. During the engaging interview, Kathy Ireland asks David Hardy,”We’re often taught that our bodies’ nutritional requirements can be met through food.  Why do you think we need to rethink this?” To which Hardy responds, “There is no real scientific evidence to support that.  It used to be so, but it isn’t anymore…Clear evidence shows that we are not getting what we need out of our foods, even if they’re carefully selected….deficiencies of these essential elements in the body do nasty things like kill brain cells [which is] scientifically proven for at least seven elements…”  He goes on to explain more in the interview (full video above). During the segment, a patient, who also happens to be a practicing therapist, shares her experience with Daily Essential Nutrients, Hardy Nutritionals® clinical strength micronutrient formula. The patient shares, “Prior to taking Hardy Nutritionals® products I was being treated for a mood disorder, OCD and some remitting PTSD from my childhood that gave me symptoms of hypo-manic episodes, spending out of control and bulimia…I called Hardy [Nutritionals]® and started on the product....
8 Proven Colloidal Silver Benefits, Uses & Side Effects

8 Proven Colloidal Silver Benefits, Uses & Side Effects

Thank you to Dr. Axe for this great overview on the uses and side effects of colloidal silver. We use colloidal silver often in our home for a variety of issues. We have found it to be highly effective and easy to use. We are always careful to only use silver from high quality sources. Colloidal Silver Benefits If you haven’t heard of colloidal silver, you will soon enough if you’re on the lookout for alternative therapies to common health issues, such as a sinus infection or a cold. Most health food stores and pharmacies stock several brands of colloidal silver, and, of course, you can find a find a vast amount of information about colloidal silver benefits on the Internet. Unfortunately, the information out there is confusing as many sources have conflicting opinions. On one hand, you’ll run across thousands of personal testimonials about colloidal silver helping people with practically every disease you’ve heard about. You will also stumble upon some well-known health sites that warn consumers about safety concerns. (1) Usually, these sources quote a statement made by the FDA in 1999 claiming that there is no scientific evidence to support the use of colloidal silver. (2) This type of information can confuse even the most savvy natural health enthusiast, which is why I want to lend a helping hand and provide some evidenced-based information to help you make an informed choice. How Colloidal Silver Benefits Work  According to a report written by Richard Davies and Samuel Eris of The Silver Institute in a 1996, there are three primary ways that colloidal silver can help heal the body: (3) 1.    Catalytic Oxidation: Silver naturally holds...
Natural Ways to Reduce Seasonal Allergies

Natural Ways to Reduce Seasonal Allergies

Here are several things that I have personally found to be enormously helpful for naturally reducing my seasonal allergies. 1. Neti Pot Used for thousands of years, neti pots help to gently flush debris and allergens out the sinus cavity can aid in allergy relief. I was initially very resistant to using a neti pot. I was sure that I was going to drown as I choked on the water going down my throat. Once I learned how to correctly use the neti pot, I experienced a significant relief not only in my allergy symptoms but also noticed a significant reduction in the number of sinus infections that I was getting.  I became a believer and a regular neti pot user! You can purchase a neti pot at most health food stores and at most drugstores in the allergy section. Mix a quarter to a half teaspoon of non-iodized table salt with one cup of lukewarm water and pour it into the pot. Lean over a sink and then tilt your head to the side (as though you were getting a drink from the faucet). At this point, put the neti pot’s spout in one nostril and slowly pour. The water will drain out the other nostril. Gently blow your nose. Switch sides and repeat, alternating nostrils. Blow your nose when you’re finished to completely clean out your nasal passageways. 2. Essential Oils There are literally hundreds of essential oils available today. Many of them are amazing when it comes to dealing naturally with seasonal allergy issues. Essential oils are the liquid that is found in leaves, stems, bark...
