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.

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.

Your bones do such a good job supporting your every move, it’s easy to take them for granted. But your skeleton is a living tissue in constant need of replenishment: As early as age 25, you can start to lose more bone than you build, leading to progressively thinner, weaker bones as you grow older and raising your risk for osteoporosis (literally “porous bone”) or debilitating fractures and breaks.
Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin that doesn’t get much attention in the health and wellness world. However, this vitamin deserves more of a spotlight than it is currently given. It is most well-known for its role in blood clotting, but it also helps strengthen our bones, fights calcification, acts as a beneficial antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, and improves brain function.
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.
Over the past few days we [at the Institute of BioAcosutic Biology in Albany, OH] have had an abundance of people reporting sore throats. It was a great opportunity for the Sound Health Research Clinic because we were able to collect enough data to discern, with certainty, the architecture depicting a Staph pathogen. This can help us more readily identify other threatening pathogens.

PCOS can become a serious–sometimes debilitating–issue for many women. It can also spur a wide variety of health concerns. This is why it is important to implement preventative strategies. Here are four of the most important natural approaches to PCOS.
Food fads come and go (remember the acai berry?), but trends emerge over time, anywhere from a couple of years to decades. Prominent ancient grains like quinoa give way to the newest member of the tribe (hello, teff!), while centuries-old cooking techniques reappear on menus across the country. So what should you put in your grocery cart and start cooking with? Everyday Health sorted through all of the up-and-coming ingredients, emerging ideas, chefs, nutritionists, and industry experts – here are their predictions on what to pay attention to in 2015.
