Alzheimer’s patients have lower metabolic rate and higher fatty acid oxidation

Just a quick post in regards to a study that found the drug donepezil – commonly used to “treat” Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) – may improve mitochondrial function in muscles. While the findings of the study in regards to donepezil are debatable and not particularly interesting, buried inside the actual study is the finding that AD … Read more

Maternal SSRI/SNRI use leads to offspring addiction/withdrawal

After being told for decades that SSRI/SNRI drugs are safe for usage during pregnancy, now the truth finally starts to come out. Well, technically it has been out for a long time considering the skyrocketing autism rates and the strong causal link between serotonin and autism. However, up until now there had been no official … Read more

Vitamin A may treat anosmia (loss of smell) due to COVID-19

Once again, evidence emerges that widely available, dirt-cheap interventions may be able to treat a condition for which mainstream medicine claims there is no available cure. Namely, one of the most persistent and “baffling” symptoms associated with current or past COVID-19 experience is anosmia – the partial or full loss of smell. Anosmia is actually … Read more

Exercise causes (and worsens) arterial calcification

A great new study sent to me by one of my blog’s readers. It will more than likely cause a lot of controversy, despite its findings having a very simple explanation. Namely, chronic exercise increases baseline cortisol and over time, cortisol (acting through the aldosterone/mineralocorticoid receptor) causes vascular calcification. High aldosterone, caused by chronic salt … Read more

PUFA required for periodontal disease, aspirin may help

It is common knowledge even among mainstream dentists that periodontal disease is caused by bacteria accumulating under the gums, which over time leads to chronic inflammation and thus destruction of both gum tissue and the alveolar/jaw bone underneath the gums. Another “new” discover is that microbiome overgrowth (and thus endotoxin/LPS production) is also involved and … Read more

Simple saline solution stops SARS-CoV-2…and maybe all viruses?

More news adding to the evidence that COVID-19 and its associated virus are little more than a media circus, at least when it comes to the gauging the pandemic’s true danger to our health. We already have at least two amazing studies showing vitamins D/E can not only stop/treat COVID-19, but are also at least … Read more

Lowering/blocking serotonin is therapeutic for cancer

One of the few studies that is brave enough to point the finger directly at serotonin as a tumor-promoter. Mainstream medicine has acknowledged that serotonin has a growth-promoting effects, but only in one specific tumor – carcinoid syndrome – and refuses to admit that the same growth-promoting mechanisms may manifest in other tumor types as … Read more

SSRI drugs decrease androgens / progestogens, increase estrogens

As hard as it is to believe, this is the actual title of the study – i.e. SSRI drugs are bonafide endocrine disruptors. As it turns out, all of the six most-prescribed SSRI drugs the study looked at behaved not only as inhibitors of gonadal androgen synthesis (e.g. testosterone, DHT), but also adrenal androgens (DHEA) … Read more

For most individuals, the risks of keto diets outweigh the benefits

The title is the actual conclusion of the study, in the authors’ own words. Among the diseases they claim keto diets cause are colon cancer, CVD, kidney disease, liver disease, Alzheimer Disease (AD) and…diabetes! If there is one disease keto diets are supposed to help with preventing and even treating, that is diabetes. The very … Read more

Vitamins D and E – the Taliban in the COVID-19 war

Despite the massive censorship all over the Internet, there have been plenty of articles and studies on vitamin D and its role in COVID-19. Several studies reported that at least 9 in 10 of hospitalized patients have severe vitamin D deficiency. In addition, a few small studies demonstrated that high-dose vitamin D may ameliorate COVID-19 … Read more
