How’s YOUR Liver? CDC Says Cancer Rates Increasing

While the thought of cancer is a scary one, ignoring the risk is hazardous to your health! Best to take the wise advice of applying an ounce of prevention as liver cancer is preventable says Dr. Xu, one of the study authors of this latest health concern.  
 
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) raised the red flag on liver cancer in their July 2018 published review. Their report shows an alarming increase in liver cancer mortality from 2000 to 2016. Men had a 43% increase, women 40%. For men, their risk still remains higher as statistically their overall numbers are 2 to 2.5 times that of women.

Breathing Exercises ‘Real and Effective’ for Fibromyalgia

Peaceful CanyonJust breathe...
A new study from the April 2018 Journal of Alternative & Complementary Medicine reports breathing exercises produce "relevant benefits" on pain tolerance thresholds in a group of fibromyalgia (FM) patients. In layman's terms, doctors put pressure on their tender points at the start of the study, measuring how much pressure pain could be tolerated. The patients were split into 2 groups; one group performed the breathing exercises and the other group did not.

Bone Up with Fibro-Care Cal!

Balanced for bone & heart health...

Beans for Bones How much calcium do you need? An interview with naturopathic Michael Murray sheds light on the subject and answers a question we hear from many customers. According to Dr. Murray, his practical recommendation on calcium supplementation is there is no reason to go over 1000 mg a day. Most studies also show that calcium alone does not benefit bones, nor reduce the risk for osteoporosis or bone loss. Adding vitamin D appears to reduce the risk of hip fractures by 29%. However, other nutrients have a role in bone integrity. Dr. Murray cites vitamin K2 in the menaquinone form, boron, B vitamins, bioflavonoids and magnesium.

CoQ10 Regulates Serotonin in Fibromyalgia

Over the past several years, TyH has been reporting on Dr. Cordero's studies with CoQ10 and fibromyalgia (FM) which lowers oxidative stress and improves energy. Another interesting study (which also includes Cordero) shows CoQ10 helps regulate serotonin, found low in FM, which may in turn help pain in this amplified pain condition.

The small clinical trial reports that disturbances in serotonin function impact the classic FM symptoms as this important chemical modulates pain, fatigue, sleep, cognition and mood. The reason why this disturbance happens or how it plays in the pathology or disease process of FM is not agreed on by researchers. However, restoring normal function could potentially help FM patients. Measured comparison of FM patients to healthy controls showed "marked" lower levels of both CoQ10 and serotonin in blood platelets. Previous research suggests platelets are good models of serotonin levels as found in nerve cells.
