Canine Medicine Heals

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  Dogs play a very important role in medical research, as service dogs, and as therapy dogs. They have been shown to sniff out cancer cells from the bladder, lung, prostate, breast, and skin with accuracy as high as 97%. They can detect when glucose levels are too high or low, to recognize when blood pressure is too high, when a heart attack is happening,...

High Blood Sugar, Elastin, Ferroelectricity and Aging

submitted by: admin on 09/24/2013
  Ferroelectricity is the response of a molecule to switch from a positive to a negative charge and is necessary to maintain the elasticity of elastin, a protein that gives elasticity to tissues such as blood vessels as well as heart and lung tissue. Ferroelasticity of elastin is lost when blood sugar levels rise and this causes it to lose about 50%...

Modifying the GI Microflora Lowers Blood Sugar

submitted by: admin on 07/10/2014
While it has been suspected that the GI microflora have a profound effect on human physiology, there has not been a lot of data supporting that the changes in physiology determine the resulting composition of the microflora. Now there is a study supporting that the microflora can be altered and this can change insulin sensitivity and decrease the risk for developing...

The Danger of Gaining Just Five Pounds

submitted by: admin on 09/30/2014
Gaining just five pounds can increase your blood pressure and lead to more weight around the middle according to a Mayo Clinic study presented at the American Heart Association's High Blood Pressure Research Scientific Sessions in September of 2014.

Understanding the Metabolic Syndrome

submitted by: admin on 10/17/2013
  The epidemic of type 2 diabetes is for the most part silent. It it not just about blood sugar levels, it is about insulin resistance.
