Root Causes of Autoimmune Illness

You have countless immune cells in every corner of your body that are constantly working to keep you healthy by identifying, packaging, and eliminating harmful substances that have made their way into your blood.

If your immune system falters and begins to identify some of your own tissues as being harmful or unnecessary, it will work to attack and eliminate these tissues through an inflammatory response that can cause pain and discomfort in many forms – this is how autoimmune illness develops. (more…)

The Anatomy of the Urinary System

The urinary system is the Rodney Dangerfield of the body: it gets no respect. Medical doctors pay worship to the cardiovascular and nervous systems; alternative healers pay homage to the colon and practice ancient detoxing rites. But who thinks about the urinary system? Who pays attention to the kidneys until something goes wrong? And make no mistake, things go wrong. When it comes to the urinary system, we’re not just talking about kidney stones and kidney failure, which affect millions of people in the United States alone, but more significantly kidney sludge, which compromises kidney function in virtually every adult living in a first world country. And we’re also talking about infection and inflammation in the urinary tract, not to mention incontinence in the bladder. (more…)

DMSO: Many Uses, Much Controversy

Abstract

Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), a by-product of the wood industry, has been in use as a commercial solvent since 1953. It is also one of the most studied but least understood pharmaceutical agents of our time–at least in the United States. According to Stanley Jacob, MD, a former head of the organ transplant program at Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, more than 40,000 articles on its chemistry have appeared in scientific journals, which, in conjunction with thousands of laboratory studies, provide strong evidence of a wide variety of properties. (See Major Properties Attributed to DMSO) Worldwide, some 11,000 articles have been written on its medical and clinical implications, and in 125 countries throughout the world, including Canada, Great Britain, Germany, and Japan, doctors prescribe it for a variety of ailments, including pain, inflammation, scleroderma, interstitial cystitis, and arthritis elevated intercranial pressure.

Yet in the United States, DMSO has Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval only for use as a preservative of organs for transplant and for interstitial cystitis, a bladder disease. It has fallen out of the limelight and out of the mainstream of medical discourse, leading some to believe that it was discredited. The truth is more complicated. (more…)

Borax Cures

There are a lot of evidence why borax is effective against nearly all forms of fungus, whether they be mycoplasma found in lupus, rosacea, dog mange, interstitial cystitis plasmodium parasites, Morgellons disease, or even pneumonia. I think borax medicine is one of the medicines most ignored, misinformed or even suppressed in our present society. The authorities have done it so well that very few know that the toxicity of borax is about equal to that of simple table salt. (more…)
