High-Dose Vitamin D Dramatically Improves Psoriasis and Vitiligo

A pilot study illuminates that high-dose vitamin D significantly improves lesions and depigmentation in psoriasis and vitiligo, respectively. Because Vitamin D deficiency is implicated in the pathophysiology of autoimmune responses, these findings may be applicable to other autoimmune disorders.

June 22, 2014 by: Paul Fassa

For starters, there’s no real proof that sunscreens actually prevent most skin cancers. Yet your dermatologist is probably robotically advising you to slather on a toxic sunscreen as a proven skin cancer preventive.

Six Reasons Probiotics Will Give You Radiant Health and Beauty

Sunday, July 07, 2013 by: Angela Doss

(NaturalNews) Humans have more than 10 times the number of bacteria in their body than they have cells – about 100 trillion, representing more than 500 different species. When in proper balance, a delicate and precise ratio of 85 percent friendly bacteria to 15 percent “unfriendly” bacteria, the human organism quite naturally heals itself. But when something upsets that delicate balance, be it general lack of nutrition, exposure to certain or numerous toxins (depending on the individual) or a medically prescribed course of antibiotics, problems can arise. Under these desperate conditions, the body shifts into survival mode (sympathetic nervous system), bringing its own innate healing abilities (parasympathetic nervous state) to a slow or full stop.

10 Tips for Using Apple Cider Vinegar and More

by Willow Tohi    

                                                                                                                                                    (NaturalNews) If time is a teacher, one thing we know is that apple cider vinegar is good stuff. The Babylonians used it as a tonic in 5000 B.C. so its been around for a while. It was also used in ancient Egypt (3000 B.C.) and by Samurai warriors in Japan (1200 B.C.), so it’s grandfathered in – doesn’t need a double-blind study to prove its effectiveness. Continue reading

Molds Suppress the Immune System, Disguising Many Common but Deadly Ailments

By Dr. Mercola | July 30 2011

Jack Thrasher, PhD, is extremely knowledgeable on the topic of mold and how it impacts your health. Mold can cause depression, chronic fatigue, frequent headaches, allergies, asthma, skin rashes, joint aches and pain, stomach and digestive problems, and more.  Interestingly, from a toxicity point of view, some mycotoxins that molds produce are actually far more toxic than heavy metals, in terms of concentration.
