It's February and it is Heart Health Month

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, this statistic is not limited to men. Coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death in women, not breast cancer, not uterine cancer. Although a very common health problem currently, coronary heart disease and heart attack date back to the early 18th century. The first issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, in 1812, included an article about angina — chest pain from coronary artery disease. Since that time, much has changed in the diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease.

Be heart-healthy this Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is a day to treat our loved ones — and ourselves — but somehow the treat of choice has become candy. While the media — and chocolate-makers — would have you believe that a piece or two of chocolate is good for you. Trust me. The chocolate that comes in the box with the big red bow is simply dressed-up sugar and high-fructose corn syrup. And here are the top three — of more than a 100 — harmful effects of sugar, according to recent food science studies.

A heart-smart strategy for post-menopausal women

Heart disease is rare in premenopausal women. Once women go through menopause though, everything changes. To reduce the risk of diabetes and heart disease, women need to take a good look at their lifestyle. Favorable cholesterol levels don't insure women against heart disease. Instead, a holistic approach is needed.

Chelation plus multivitamins halved cardiac events in diabetic patients

The TACT study showed even better results in patients who received both multivitamins and EDTA chelation therapy than previously reported with chelation treatment. There was a 34 percent reduction of a composite of cardiovascular risk, heart attack and stroke in patients that had had a previous heart attack.

War on integrative medicine, Pt. 1: Eliminate the integrative doctors
Alliance for Natural Health USA
At ICIM, we will hear from John Wilson, MD, about how the integrative docs in North Carolina took steps to protect themselves and how every other state should do the same.
The basic idea is to preserve the conventional medicine monopoly by all means possible, including the use of state medical boards and physician credentialing groups. There's a close-knit confederacy of three powerful conventional medical organizations in the United States. These groups work closely together and are allied with both federal and state government. One of their prime objectives appears to be to eliminate competition from natural health practitioners, especially integrative MDs and DOs, whom they seem to regard as traitors

Healing with language: Point of view
SCS Matters
When we communicate, we typically communicate from our own perspective, aware of what something means to us rather than what it might mean to those with whom we are communicating. You probably already know that dentists expend a lot of effort reminding patients to show up for their appointments. Yes, reminders are a good idea and it also helps when they consider the patients' point of view.

Collagenous colitis — What is it?

Collagenous colitis is a newly recognized disease of the colon. On sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy the bowel lining appears to be normal but microscopic examination of biopsies shows inflammation and the presence of a band-like substance — called collagen — which is a component of scar tissue. We have no evidence that it is caused by an infectious agent, nor does it appear to be related to any known causes of diarrhea.

Curry implant can slow down breast cancer development
Counsel & Heal
Based on several studies, researchers have tied curry to many health benefits. In some of these studies, curry was tied to having anticancer properties. However, simply eating curry was not tied to reducing cancer risks. In a new study, researchers from the University of Louisville, Kentucky developed a "curry implant" in the form of a dissolvable capsule. The team tested the capsules by implanting them into mice models and discovered that the spice was capable of reducing tumor size.
