Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, or CFS, is a controversial disorder. Official medical classification of CFS as a disease has only existed since 1988, and since then the exact epidemiology and even definition of the disease has been contested and argued for decades. The debate currently hinges on whether or not CFS is a physiological disease, or a psychological or psychosocial disease. Some argue that CFS is strongly tied to depression and stress and a number of other psychological factors and in order to create improvement, psychological treatment is required. Conversely, many believe that CFS is a physiological disease with many possible causes, or even multiple causes, or potentially even a compounding of a number of conditions simultaneously.

Acupuncture, Ancient Ways for Modern Times

Friday, March 16, 2012 12:00:00 AM America/Los_Angeles

Though at one time there may have been some doubts about the validity and efficacy of acupuncture in Western countries, but after years of documented successes there is little question that acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine are legitimate avenues of treatment for a wide range of individuals alternatives. Not only because of its long history of practice and observation in Eastern cultures, but increasing verification by the standards of Western medicine give acupuncture great credibility as a method of treatment, so that one could say that modern Western and Traditional Chinese Medicine are the two dominant medical systems in the world today.

The highest incidence of rheumatoid arthritis occurs in women ages 44-65 though it can occur at almost any age and in both genders.

Saturday, December 17, 2011 12:00:00 AM America/Los_Angeles

In the 1960s, the Chinese army funded a study to find the most effective treatment for malaria. They researched thousands of substances for well over a decade. In the mid 70s, a clear winner emerged. An extract of the plant Artemisia annua was found to be the only substance tested that was actually effective, and it also improved symptoms and cured the disease faster than any drug in history.

Alcohol, The Nutrient Thief

Saturday, December 3, 2011 12:00:00 AM America/Los_Angeles

Alcoholic beverages are as old as the tale of man. Some of the earliest written documents in existence contain either references to the consumption of alcohol, or even contain its recipe. Beer, in particular, is quite likely the oldest alcoholic beverage known to man. As early as 3500 b.c. and further, there is proof positive evidence of its existence. Does this mean that the desire to consume alcohol is imprinted into our very DNA?

Chiropractic Medicine, The Great Protector

Friday, November 11, 2011 12:00:00 AM America/Los_Angeles

The American Heritage Dictionary (2nd College Ed.) defines “chiropractic” as “a method of treating disease by manipulation of the joints of the body, especially the spinal column.” In essence its meaning is “to work with the hands,” deriving from the Greek cheir (meaning “hand”) and prassein (meaning “to do or to work”). A chiropractor heals the body by working the spine with his hands.

On January 25th, 1945, just a few months before the Great War ended in Europe, the modest All-American town of Grand Rapids, Michigan made history.

Solvents, Cleaner Does Not Mean Safer

Probably one of the most persistent ironies in America is the use of toxic chemicals to clean our homes and our personal belongings. When it comes to machinery and such items that require servicing in order to continue operating properly is understandable, but the use of toxic substances to make your kitchen clean is not only ironic, but also dangerous.

Preservatives, They Are Not Preserving Life

Have you ever bought a bag of bread, and regretted not looking at the expiration date? You probably saw large green mold spores growing on the insides and outside of the slices, rendering it completely inedible, or maybe it had white powdery patches that simply looked unappetizing. How about turned milk? Browned apples? Do you eat bananas that have turned black? Most likely you do not, along with 99% of the food eating public.

Tin, Safe to Sinister Through the Power of Chemistry

Saturday, August 13, 2011 12:00:00 AM America/Los_Angeles

Tin cans, tin foil, the Ford Model T (or Tin-Lizzie) all have something in common, other than tin. No one uses them anymore. You may still find the occasion tin can or piece of foil in a basement or kitchen pantry; you could even find a restored Model T, but these things are antiques, gone the way of the dinosaur. While this may seem to mean that this rather innocuous metal has departed from our daily lives and is a relic of another generation, the truth is quite the opposite.

Psoriasis, The Power of Natural Solutions

Saturday, July 30, 2011 12:00:00 AM America/Los_Angeles

An interesting irony is that even though Psoriasis may perhaps be the oldest known medical condition; it is one of the conditions whose mechanisms we know very little about. Even though many would argue that modern science has discovered many intricacies regarding psoriasis and many different medications have been developed, there are serious risks associated with these medications and safer, gentler, and equally effective sources of relief are needed for the suffering psoriasis population.

While the cat has truly been let out of the bag as far as the health effects of smoking are concerned, few people know about the specific toxins in cigarettes that causes the illnesses aside from perhaps nicotine.

Herpes; Nothing to Be Ashamed Of

Saturday, June 18, 2011 12:00:00 AM America/Los_Angeles

Herpes is the broad common name for infections that occur as a result of the herpes simplex virus. There are actually two strains of this virus: herpes simplex 1 and herpes simplex 2, more commonly written as HSV1 and HSV2. The primary difference is that HSV1 infections typically manifest as cold sores or fever blisters on various parts of the mouth, throat, and face, as well as the central nervous system.

Mercury, AKA Liquid Misery

It was definitely one of the more exciting days since science class was typically drawing letters and numbers with arrows pointing various directions on a piece of paper. Not that day though. That day we got to play with a dish of mercury that looked like the liquid metal bad guy in Terminator 2. I remember when the teacher poured a whole vial of the stuff into a wide dish and swished it around; it looked like it had a mind of its own.

Iodine, A Gift From The Sea

It is very likely that iodine was the very first nutrient to be recognized as essential to human life. In 3000 B.C., the Chinese used seaweed and burnt sponge, rich with iodine from the sea, as a treatment for goiter, a condition where the thyroid gland becomes very enlarged in the neck. Besides having the neck of a bullfrog, symptoms that often accompanied goiter were obesity, hair-loss, tough skin, and high cholesterol.

In The Realm of The Bone Matrix

Friday, March 4, 2011 12:00:00 AM America/Los_Angeles

Bone is tough stuff. Bones from both man and beast have been used by primitive cultures for thousands of years for tools because of the density and high-impact tolerance of bone. Martial artists, using their bare hands, can break through slabs of wood and concrete with the proper use of their bones. In fact, many people forget that while we may be able to theoretically live without them, perhaps as some blobby, vegetative mass, it is solely because of our bone structure that we are able to move, run, play and build. At times we take these bones for granted.

Essentially, "HBOT is a method of restoring wellness [which] can reverse pathological states in which the fact that too little oxygen is reaching the cells (hypoxia) is a component." In other words, since many disease states are caused by a shortage of oxygen to the cells, HBOT can greatly benefit people who suffer from such conditions.

It was hard to find, and a pound of refined sugar could easily cost the average person a full week’s wages.
