Understanding how and why immune responsiveness changes in humans as we age and what we may do to prevent or restore deregulated immunity and assure healthy longevity, led to the development of complementary biomedical therapy concepts.
Poor food selection and restricted dietary intake can affect the nutritional status of an individual at any stage of life and can lead to impairment of long term health. Increasingly, scientific evidence is supporting the view that diet controls and modulates many functions of the human body and accordingly participates in the maintenance of the state of good health or homeostasis necessary to reduce the risk of many chronic diseases. Over the last few decades the science of nutrition has progressed to the greater understanding of the physiological and genetic mechanisms by which diet and individual food components influence health and disease. It is indeed a paradox that nutrition is essential to support life but can also be considered as a causation of many chronic diseases. While we cannot control our chronological age, we do have control over our biological age to live a long life without disease, and to do so it is necessary to learn how to prevent and completely change the effects of aging and disease.
Our intention is to empower you; to increase your knowledge, that you can make more informed personal choices, learn how to prevent and completely change the effects of aging.
"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."
Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher (1788 – 1860)
Nearly 30 years after Nobel laureate Linus Pauling famously and controversially suggested that vitamin C supplements can prevent cancer (NOTE: He stated Intravenous Vitamin C in HIGH Doses can also be used as a chemotherapeutic agent for cancer patients), a team of Johns Hopkins scientists have shown that in mice at least, vitamin C - and potentially other antioxidants - can indeed inhibit the growth of some tumors ¯ just not in the manner suggested by years of investigation.
Do you know how much are ANTI-AGING and IMMUNITY connected? How to stay young and never be ill again? In order to look young and well kempt as long as possible, live a long life without disease, it is necessary to learn how to prevent and completely change the effects of aging and disease.
Laboratory tests of blood and urine can picture and evaluate the health status of any individual. There are many reasons which can lead to results outside of the "normal range". These results can help you detect potential problems.
Fontana research associate professor of medicine at Washington University and an investigator at the Istituto Superiore di Sanità in Rome, Italy. and his co-authors write about how cutting calorie intake between 10 percent and 50 percent decreases the activity of pathways involving insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1), glucose and TOR (target of rapamycin), and considerably increases lifespan.
The single most important thing you may ever read on cancer treatment. The use of Immune Support along with Conventional Treatment. Cancer results from the body failing to recognize and destroy cells that do not replicate normally. Why?
In research to be published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, Dr Cornelia de Moor of The University of Nottingham and her team have investigated a drug called cordycepin, which was originally extracted from a rare kind of wild mushroom called cordyceps and is now prepared from a cultivated form.
Dr de Moor said: “Our discovery will open up the possibility of investigating the range of different cancers that could be treated with cordycepin.
The human immune system is a very complex system build up of numerous functional parts. To understand how the immune system works it is essential to know the functional parts and their rolle in the system therefor we will list you the functional parts and what rolle they play in the immune system. The human immune system is a very complex system build up of numerous functional parts.
Analytical testing recently completed by the chemists at Integrated Biomolecule Inc. of Tucson, Arizona, has revealed some very startling news. The cultivated Cordyceps produced by Aloha Medicinals has more than four times the nucleoside content, and nearly five times more of the total active ingredients than the wild collected variety! Analytical testing recently completed by the chemists at Integrated Biomolecule Inc. of Tucson, Arizona, has revealed some very startling news.
Medicinal mushrooms as a source of anti-tumor and immuno-modulating polysaccharides. By the term "mushrooms", we generally mean the definition of Chang and Miles (1992) "A macrofungus with a distinctive fruiting body which can be either hypogeous or epigeous, large enough to be seen with the naked eye and to be picked by hand".
Scientists have made a key discovery in understanding why tumours may go undetected by the immune system. They remain untreated by the body's own natural defences and therefor can cause tumors to expand. The findings could lead to new treatments for tumors. Under normal circumstances, the immune system creates sustained inflammation around a dangerous pathogen or injury which tells the body that there is a problem.
It is important to maintain both your good health and your body's balance. Each time we get sick, a potential vulnerable spot may open in our body's defenses. Over time cell mediated immunity may become inadequate or malfunction.
The ability to anticipate future events allows us to plan and exert control over our lives, but it may also contribute to stress-related increased risk for the diseases of aging. The psychologists found that those most threatened by the anticipation of stressful tasks in every segment of daily life, at work, public speaking, etc. looked older at the cellular level.
In essence energy arrives from the Sun, but humans are unable to convert it directly to run metabolic processes. Therefore, we depend on photosynthesis to convert solar energy into chemical storage (in the form of carbohydrate).
Cancers may be wounds that never heal, suggest the first live images of tumors forming. It looks like that cancer cells may be considered lesions that never cure according to the first live images of tumor forming.
Cancer is the second most common cause of premature death worldwide and 5 million new cases are diagnosed each year in Europe and USA alone. Articles published in the Lancet and the Lancet Oncology show that aspirin, taken daily, may prevent cancer, and could even treat certain cancers.
Overall daily aspirin reduced the rate of cancer by 24%. The effect only became significant with long -term treatment of more than 5 years.
A new research by American Cancer Society scientists says new information displaying aspirin’s potential role in decreasing the risk of cancer death bring us considerably closer to the time when cancer prevention can be included in clinical guidelines for the use of aspirin in preventative care. The review, released in Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology, says even a 10% decrease in overall cancer occurrence during the first 10 years of treatment could tip the balance of benefits.
