LYME DISEASE: On the Rise & Wearing a Disguise…

HEALING LYME: A Book by Stephen Buhner

Despite Centers for Disease Control estimates that only 20,000 new Lyme disease infections occur each year, the true figure, as Harvard medical school researchers have found, nearly approaches 200,000. Symptoms run from mild lethargy to severe arthritis to incapacitating mental dysfunction. And despite medical pronouncements to the contrary, extensive research has found that tests for the disease are not very reliable and antibiotics are only partially effective; up to 35 percent of those infected will not respond to treatment or will relapse. The spirochetes that cause Lyme are stealth pathogens – they can hide within cells or alter their form so that antibiotics cannot affect them. Lyme disease is, in fact, a potent, emerging epidemic disease for which technological medicine is only partially effective. “Healing Lyme” examines the leading, scientific research on Lyme infection, its tests and treatments, and outlines the most potent herbal medicines and supplements that offer help either alone or in combination with antibiotics for preventing and healing the disease. It is the essential guide to Lyme infection and its treatment.

Life Extension Magazine:   Resveratrol Combats Leading Causes of Death

A 2010 international conference found that resveratrol operates via twelve key mechanisms to combat five of the ten leading age-related causes of death in the US.

Studies released since that time further clarify and amplify the power of resveratrol to prevent, and in some cases reverse, the biological changes associated with chronic disease and aging. Compelling evidence is now available for resveratrol’s ability to favorably modulate factors implicated in the onset of heart disease, cancer, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, and diabetes.

INFLAMMATION: Quelling the Fire Within…

managing inflammation naturally and effectively

The term inflammation is derived from the latin ‘inflammare’ which means ‘to set on fire’! Inflammation can easily be identified by redness, heat and swelling (most often, but not exclusively, with accompanying pain). Many common conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and autoimmune conditions are chronic inflammatory conditions. The exposure of cells and tissues to chronic inflammation causes significant damage and if left unresolved causes cellular impairment and loss of functional tissue, not to mention the associated pain.
