Coconut oil has been demonized in the past because it contains saturated fat. However, new data is shedding new light on saturated fats that contain medium-chain triglycerides (MCT’s) fatty acids. MCT’s are easily absorbed as a quick source energy source and turned into ketone bodies, which can have therapeutic effects on brain disorders like epilepsy and Alzheimer’s.
It is a widely held belief that all someone needs to do to contract an infection, such as one caused by a virus, is to come into contact with an infected patient. However, it’s important to realize that these pathogens are only able to successfully invade and take hold within our bodies if our immune systems are weak. Thankfully, there are countless ways to boost immunity and fend off disease, one of these being to increase production or intake of mannose-binding lectins.
Are you among the many seasonal allergy sufferers each year? Are you tired of the negative side effects many over-the-counter antihistamines provide?

Yoga has long been a popular form of exercise and meditation, but science is starting to confirm the ancient practice has the power to treat depression and anxiety.
With one in five Canadians dealing with a form of mental illness at some point in their lives, physicians are beginning to look beyond traditional methods of treatment, such as therapy or medication. Some are turning to yoga.

Although 2014 was the shining year for numerous foods, many would attest that turmeric held the gold medal in ‘hottest foods of 2014.’ The spice is relatively reasonably priced, available, and boasts seemingly countless health benefits. One of those benefits is revealed in a study conducted relatively recently, one which found that turmeric may contribute to the regeneration of a ‘damaged brain’ and help with neurological disorders.

When we are children, we literally soak up the world around us. This is to help us form ideas about the world to that will serve to assist us in navigating through life. And as children, we have no filters, we are pure authentic beings…free of societal constraints, living from pure heart and spirit expressing what comes naturally. That is until we are told NOT to.
You do not have to lose your mind with advancing age. Your brain has the capacity to regenerate and grow throughout the entire human lifespan – learn how to ensure your brain’s continued growth and rejuvenation. Compelling evidence shows that physical exercise helps build a brain that not only resists shrinkage, but increases cognitive abilities. We now know that exercise promotes a process known as neurogenesis, i.e. your brain’s ability to adapt and grow new brain cells, regardless of your age. This article highlights a number of brain-boosting benefits of exercise.
It’s easy to look at your T.V. as just another appliance in your home, one that entertains you on demand with a mere click of the remote. And yet it does emit energy – in the form of sound and light. BioAcoustic Biology is an integrative medicine which analyzes our body frequencies (which it calls frequency equivalents (TM)) and the frequencies of things that enter our bodies: foods, toxins, pathogens, and yes, whatever comes out of your T.V. So what is coming out of your T.V. besides your favorite television show or movie?
There’s a growing sense of excitement over the prospect that certain individuals may regain mental health with antibiotics, intravenous treatments and possibly dietary changes, instead of traditional psychiatric drugs and brain stimulation treatments. Immunopsychiatry is a new approach that recognizes the immune system and the brain are inexorably linked and should be treated in tandem. This immune hypothesis is a paradigm shift that not only offers a tangible, biological basis for subsets of many previously inexplicable psychiatric conditions, it raises the possibility of successfully diagnosing, treating and perhaps even preventing them by homing in on the immune system and managing inflammation.

A facial exercise for drooping eyelids. Your face is like any other part of your body. It responds to exercise, great nutrition, avoiding toxic chemicals, and the high vibration of a loving joyful attitude.
A groundbreaking new study published in Molecular Nutrition & Food Research titled, “Interspecies communication between plant and mouse gut host cells through edible plant derived exosome-like nanoparticles,” reveals a new way that food components ‘talk’ to animal cells by regulating gene expression and conferring significant therapeutic effects. This is the first study of its kind to look at the role of exosomes, small vesicles secreted by plant and animal cells that participate in intercellular communication, in interspecies (plant-animal) communication. Exosomes are the missing link in how plants and animal cells communicate and collaborate.
