6 Body Parts Doctors Think Are Useless: How Little Do They Know

The ineptitude of the medical profession is hallmarked by their sheer ignorance of the human body. This stems from a combination of institutional training which then leaps over to their field, medical offices and even conferences and continuing education to reinforce this training, just in case they happen to gain some wisdom from their practice. The human body is perfect, period. Any advice coming from any person who attempts to convince you that a part of your body is unnecessary, useless or needs to be removed, has no place in any health profession, let alone the medical field. Here are 6 examples of body parts which doctors think are useless, but really are not.

Their common argument is that due to the complexity of our bodies, certain organs and parts have become less and less needed over time and simply not needed for survival. Well, quality of life and survival are two totally different things. (more…)

What are Gallstones?

What are Gallstones?

Gallstones are round or oval, smooth or faceted lumps of solid matter found in the gallbladder (the sac under the liver where bile is stored and concentrated). Gallstones may be without symptoms or may be associated with periods of intense pain in the abdomen that radiates to the upper back. Symptoms begin only when a gallstone gets stuck in the duct leading from the gallbladder to the intestine. An ultrasound exam provides definitive diagnosis of gallstones. (more…)

Beat gallstones naturally

Gallstones are crystalline formations of cholesterol and calcium formed within the gallbladder and biliary tracts. These stones can vary widely in size from as small as a grain of salt to nearly the size of a golf ball. Gallstones are a sign of incomplete liver detoxification and pose a significant threat to the body. Beat gallstones naturally with an anti-inflammatory diet and cleansing cycle. (more…)

New ‘Hope’ to Cure Liver Disease Exposes Modern Medicine’s Fundamental Error

Death's Head Caduceus with Red ShadowModern medicine’s public relations apparatus constantly pours out stories of new cure hopes, and the media gobbles it up and spews it out. The latest is about a “breakthrough” that could provide the “cure” for liver disease. It’s a vain hope, though. The hope is predicated, like most of the medical industry’s treatments, on a foolish belief that understanding the most minute details of how a cellular process works will show how to fix it.

The effect of idebenone, a coenzyme Q analogue, on hydrophobic bile acid toxicity to isolated rat hepatocytes and hepatic mitochondria.

ABSTRACT

Oxidant stress induced by hydrophobic bile acids has been implicated in the pathogenesis of liver injury in cholestatic liver disorders. We evaluated the effect of idebenone, a coenzyme Q analogue, on taurochenodeoxycholic acid (TCDC)-induced cell injury and oxidant stress in isolated rat hepatocytes and on glycochenodeoxycholic acid (GCDC)-induced generation of hydroperoxides in fresh hepatic mitochondria.

Gallbladder rescue

As organs go, the gallbladder isn’t the sexiest; however when the gallbladder and liver malfunction, it causes a host of painful and unpleasant symptoms leading to the surgical removal of roughly 500,000 of them annually. No doubt some deserve to go, especially when the gallbladder (GB) is chronically infected with a thickened, dystonic wall and packed with stones. The prospect of GB perforation into the peritoneum is certainly dire. However, in my experience, for most GBs with acute or episodic pain following fatty meals and mild or moderate disease, a rescue should be attempted. (more…)

Try gallstone flushing before gallbladder removal

Five hundred to seven hundred thousand people have a cholecystectomy, which is the removal of the gallbladder, every year in America. They may do so believing that all their gallstone-related troubles will be gone after the surgery. What many do not realize is that a cholecystectomy can bring complications and require lifelong dietary changes for those choosing the operation. Because gallbladder removal can create problems, patients should consider a gallstone flush as a better first step toward restoring health. (more…)

CURCUMIN: Master Healer

Cancer

It’s rare to see a drug that is shown, in study after study, to have remarkable and significant anti-cancer properties both in vivo and in vitro. But curcumin is such a drug, and it induces tumor apoptosis with no apparent toxicity.

To get just a sampling of how thoroughly curcumin has been studies in cancer over the past few years, consider the following. (more…)

Benefits of A Liver Gallbladder Cleanse

“What will you experience during a liver gallbladder cleanse?

Usually the first cleanse will purge over 100 liverstones and/or gallstones from the liver and gallbladder respectively. These stones can range in size from very tiny sand-like granules to the diameter of a quarter. The stones will most likely be mixed in with your fecal matter and may be difficult to distinguish.

Of course, many other types of toxic material trapped in the liver, gallbladder, and intestines can exit the body and may be more difficult to identify.”  (more…)
