Panic Attacks and Anxiety Linked To Low Vitamin B6 and Iron Levels

 

by Carly Fraser    Everyone feels anxious now and then. It’s a very normal emotion that might strike before we write a test, speak publicly or make an important decision.

This is different from anxiety disorders, however. Anxiety disorders affect over 18% of the American population alone, and develop as a result of a complex set of factors, including personality, brain chemistry, genetics, and life experiences. Continue reading

Shocking new drug danger discovered: Statins found to cause ALS, a fatal nervous system disorder

(Natural News) Many people take statins with the aim of improving their health, but these drugs come with so many side effects that they’re often not worth taking. Long under fire for their lack of results and their role in raising the risk of diabetes, yet another reason has emerged for avoiding these drugs: They can cause the deadly disorder ALS.

ALS, which stands for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a nervous system disorder that causes progressive muscle strength loss that is irreversible. Also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, it cause nerve cells within the spinal cord and brain that control your voluntary muscles to die. It may start with weakness in one leg or arm and speech changes before leading to muscle twitching and eventually preventing people from moving, speaking, eating and breathing. There is no cure, and the disease is fatal.

According to a new study that was published in the Drug Safety journal, statins could be one of the driving factors behind sporadic cases of ALS, which account for roughly nine out of ten ALS diagnoses. In the study, researchers looked at the reporting odds ratio, or ROR, of statins in relation to ALS and ALS-like symptoms. An ROR of 6 or greater generally suggests probable cause.

While the RORs for ALS were considered elevated for all of the statins studied, they discovered that lipophilic statins like Lovastatin (Altoprev) had an alarmingly high ROR of 107. Meanwhile, the ROR for Simvastatin (Zocor) was 23, while that of the popular statin Atorvastatin (Lipitor) was 17 and Rosuvastatin (Crestor) was 9.09. The researchers concluded that there is indeed a concerning connection that warrants further exploration.

Statins have lots of side effects, few benefits

If you take statins, ALS isn’t the only medical problem you have to worry about. They’ve also been linked to a higher risk of heart disease and memory loss. The most common side effects include cognitive problems, fatigue and muscle symptoms, while some people note aggression, higher irritability, and numbness or tingling in their extremities. And while they are intended to reduce the risk of suffering an ischemic stroke, they can raise the risk of hemorrhagic strokes.

Statins have also been shown to double the risk of developing diabetes. The risk is even higher among post-menopausal women, with one large study of more than 150,000 women showing that this group’s risk of diabetes rises by 71 percent by taking statins.

Statins are a huge moneymaker for doctors and pharmaceutical companies, so it’s unlikely that prescriptions will slow down any time soon. Thankfully, many people can avoid them by making lifestyle changes that will improve their health and bring their cholesterol to healthier levels. While it’s not quite as easy as taking a pill, improving your diet and getting regular exercise won’t raise your risk of ALS or any other illness – in fact, it will have the opposite effect.

The first step is adding more foods to your diet that are known to fight cholesterol. Focus on getting plenty of omega 3 fatty acids and fiber, and eat foods like oats, fish and garlic. Try to increase your physical activity levels, whether you’re going from being sedentary to taking a few slow strolls round the block after dinner each week or turning a couple of your weekly jogs into runs. No matter what you’re currently doing, there is a way to raise the intensity.

With nearly one out of every four people in the U.S. over the age of 45 taking statins, it’s important that everyone is aware of the risks posed these drugs and the safer alternatives for lowering your cholesterol and protecting your heart health naturally.

Are Microwaves (from Cell Phones, Wireless Internet, etc.) Making You Sick?

Some of the latest science says the answer may be “Yes.” 

Wireless internet, cell phones, and smart meters are ubiquitous in the modern world, but some studies have shown that there is reason to be cautious about exposure to microwave radiation (MWR). The federal government, however, is not only asleep at the wheel; it has preempted local communities from rejecting cell phone towers based on very real health concerns. It’s time for federal regulators to take this issue seriously and stop blocking citizens from stepping in when the government fails to act. Continue reading

“Whole” Onions Can Prevent Colds and Flu

ONIONS?!   I had never heard of  this!
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people there was this Doctor that visited the many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu…Many of the farmers and their families had contracted it and many died.

The doctor came upon this one farmer and to his surprise, everyone was very healthy. When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was different the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in the rooms of the home, (probably only two rooms back then). The doctor couldn’t believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions and place it under the microscope. She gave him one and when he did this, he did find the flu virus in the onion. It obviously absorbed the bacteria, therefore, keeping the family healthy. Continue reading

Low Oxygen Levels Drive Cancer Growth

 . . . what this means to you  In my 2011 breakthrough book, Never Fear Cancer Again, I identified a deficiency of oxygen metabolism inside of cells as the prime cause of cancer… 

Now a new study in the Journal of Molecular Cell Biology has reached the same conclusion: low oxygen levels in cells is the primary cause of uncontrollable tumor growth. This runs counter to the widely accepted belief in conventional medicine that genetic mutations are responsible for cancer growth. Yet this gene theory has never been proven. It is not possible to explain the high rates of cancer around the world by chance genetic mutations alone.  Continue reading
