DHA shown to help reverse memory loss

DHA along with EPA are the primary components in the Omega-3 fats found in fish oil. Omega-3 fat deficiency is a contributing factor to many neurological and psychological problems, including degenerative disorders such as “age-related” memory loss and Alzheimer’s. Sixty percent of your brain is fat. DHA alone makes up about 15 percent to 20 percent of your brain’s cerebral cortex, as well as 30 percent to 60 percent the retina of your eye, making it an essential nutrient for both brain and eye health. It’s important to get the...

New Research Finds Diabetes Can Be Reversed

Article by Mark Hyman, MD I have recently spent more time in drugs stores than I would like helping my sister on her journey through (and hopefully to the other side of) cancer. Rite Aid, CVS and Walgreens all had large diabetes sections offering support for a “diabetes lifestyle”—glucose monitors, lancets, blood pressure cuffs, medications, supplements and pharmacy magazines heavily supported by pharmaceutical advertising. Patients are encouraged to get their eye check ups, monitor their blood pressure, track their blood sugars, have...

Chiropractic – Enhanced Immune Cell Activity

The chiropractic immunology connection was strengthened in 1991 when Patricia Brennan, Ph.D. and other researchers conducted a study that found improved immune response following chiropractic treatment. Specifically, the study demonstrated the “phagocytic respiratory burst of polymorphnuclear neutrophils (PMN) and monocytes were enhanced in adults that had been adjusted by chiropractors.” In other words, the cells that act like “Pac-Man” eating and destroying bad cells are enhanced through chiropractic care. Brennan P,...

Chiropractic Patients – Better Immune Systems

One of the most important studies showing the positive effect chiropractic care can have on the immune system and general health was performed by Ronald Pero, Ph.D., chief of cancer prevention research at New York’s Preventive Medicine Institute and professor of medicine at New York University. Dr. Pero measured the immune systems of people under chiropractic care as compared to those in the general population and those with cancer and other serious diseases. In his initial three-year study of 107 individuals who had been under...

Chiropractic and the Immune System

Your nervous system controls the function of every muscle, organ, gland, cell, tissue and system in your body…especially your Immune System. There is very strong link between the nervous system and the immune system. When spinal subluxation causes disturbance to spinal nerves that provide signals to important immune related organs the result is a poorly functioning nervous system. Today researchers know there is a critical link between the nervous system and the immune system.
