Vitamin D – the new antibiotic against skin and gut infections

A great new study demonstrating the crucial role of vitamin D in maintaining proper immune function. The study demonstrates that maintaining normal levels of vitamin D is strongly protective against gut infections by Salmonella-type bacteria. Interestingly, the authors claim that vitamin D is likely to provide protection against inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) conditions such as … Read more Vitamin D – the new antibiotic against skin and gut infections

Blocking serotonin, adrenaline treats anxiety, brain damage due to alcohol “addiction”

Over the last 2 decades a large number of studies have come out demonstrating that the withdrawal symptoms in “addicts” are due largely due to elevated serotonin and adrenaline. As such, drugs such as cyproheptadine, clonidine, propranolol, etc have been successfully used off-label for treating withdrawal symptoms. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2178473 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6907020 https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/BF00421401 Now, a new study adds … Read more Blocking serotonin, adrenaline treats anxiety, brain damage due to alcohol “addiction”

LSD enters clinical trials for Alzheimer Disease (AD)

For the last 5+ decades, Big Pharma and public health officials together with the entire law enforcement apparatus have been propagating myths, lies and outright fraud in regards to psychedelic drugs and especially about LSD. This attitude grew out of the civil rights movement and protests in the 1960s. During that time period a number … Read more LSD enters clinical trials for Alzheimer Disease (AD)

Aspirin safe and effective for prevention AND treatment of migraine

A human study, which dispels the myths that migraine is yet another “mysterious” disease with an unknown cause and no effective treatment. Considering the role of serotonin in migraines, it  adds to the evidence that aspirin is a potent anti-serotonin agent in higher doses. The good news is that even lower doses in the 81mg … Read more Aspirin safe and effective for prevention AND treatment of migraine

DHEA-S completely prevents breast cancer metastasis due to estrogen

A great new study that debunks several myths related to DHEA. One of those myths is that when used in physiological doses DHEA can increase risk of estrogen-positive cancers, especially breast cancer. Another myth is that declining DHEA levels seen with advancing age are simply a consequence of aging and restoring said levels would likely … Read more DHEA-S completely prevents breast cancer metastasis due to estrogen

Progesterone may treat diabetes, obesity, and metabolic syndrome

Interesting new study, which adds more to the already existing mountain of evidence for the benefit of progesterone in a variety of conditions of metabolic origin. While the study does not mention any specific doses, it is known that the receptor (PGRMC2) whose activation the study found to be beneficial for diabetes/obesity, is activated by … Read more Progesterone may treat diabetes, obesity, and metabolic syndrome

Inhibiting estrogen synthesis may treat / prevent ectopic pregnancy

I just made a post about the role of estrogen in male infertility, which matches perfectly the evidence about estrogen’s role as a metabolic inhibitor, and an agent that causes atrophy in both male and female gonads. Male fertility depends on intensity of (sperm) metabolism Now, a new study demonstrates that using an aromatase inhibitor … Read more Inhibiting estrogen synthesis may treat / prevent ectopic pregnancy

Vitamin D strikingly therapeutic for type II diabetes

Despite the ongoing assault against “ineffective” dietary supplements, the evidence in favor of them keeps piling on. One of the favorite targets of mainstream media is vitamin D, and multiple claims of “ineffectiveness” based on “meta” studies have come out in the last 5 years. Usually, this is a sign that something big, and financially … Read more Vitamin D strikingly therapeutic for type II diabetes

Inhibiting aromatase (to lower estrogen) may treat gastric (stomach) cancer

Yet another study demonstrating the causative link between estrogen and a cancer considered to be hormone-independent. Gastric cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-deaths worldwide, and especially Asian countries. It is considered very hard to treat and most patients are diagnosed at stages when surgery is not a viable option. As such, the … Read more Inhibiting aromatase (to lower estrogen) may treat gastric (stomach) cancer

Vitamin K may treat leukemia

Another great study demonstrating both the therapeutic potential of vitamins as well as the metabolic/redox nature of cancer. As I mentioned in some of my podcasts, vitamin K2 (MK-4) is currently in clinical trials for treating/preventing a number of different cancers, especially liver cancer (HCC) and the so-called myelodisplastic conditions which spans all blood cancers … Read more Vitamin K may treat leukemia
