    Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a common autoimmune disease in which killer T-cells of the body's own immune system (most likely triggered by invading bacteria) reprogram themselves to attack joint cartilage, resulting in inflammation and joint destruction. The current treatment strategies of suppressing immunity and inflammation offer only limited success since they do not deal with the underlying causes.
  • 10/10/2012
    Inflammation is actually a defense mechanism for the body. For injuries, it serves to bathe the injury in healing fluids and acts as a cushion to protect against further injury. However, if the inflammation is prolonged or out of control, it can cause destruction. This is what occurs in arthritis, where the inflammation actually causes the destruction of the joints. Chronic systemic inflammation is involved in a variety of conditions from neurological to degenerative conditions, and is considered a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

    Probably no other area in alternative health is more subject to over-promising and under-delivering than anti-aging. We're talking about every magic bullet under the sun from face cremes to human growth hormone supplements. Ah, if only it were that simple! The simple fact is that aging is not the result of any one single factor, but is the cumulative result of a number of factors. However, there are several steps one can take to slow down or even reverse the aging process:

    Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a common autoimmune disease in which killer T-cells of the body's own immune system (most likely triggered by invading bacteria) reprogram themselves to attack joint cartilage, resulting in inflammation and joint destruction. The current treatment strategies of suppressing immunity and inflammation offer only limited success since they do not deal with the underlying causes. Osteoarthritis, on the other hand, is more likely the result of wear and tear or low pH, but again, standard treatments involving pain killers and anti-inflammatories address only the symptoms, not the underlying causes. In both cases, the key to success is to address the underlying causes, which automatically improves the symptoms.

    Like many diseases, Alzheimer's disease does not seem amenable to a "magic bullet" approach.

Twenty-one percent of all instances of the disease, or 1.1 million cases, could be prevented if more people exercised regularly, according to the researchers. The single biggest risk factor worldwide, though, is lack of education.

Twenty-one percent of all instances of the disease, or 1.1 million cases, could be prevented if more people exercised regularly, according to the researchers.  Depression causes another 15 percent, says the study, smoking 11 percent, hypertension eight percent, obesity in midlife and low education each trigger seven percent, and diabetes correlates to three percent.

    A new study has found Botox reduces the ability to empathize. The reason is that in order to interpret the emotions others express, we need to mimic those emotions in our own facial expression.

    Researchers from Tel Aviv University in Israel recently reported that after following 820 adults over a 20-year period, it became clear that those who enjoyed good friendships at work had a significantly lower risk of dying from any cause.  In fact, these results provide an interesting corollary to previous research showing that having good friends matters more to longevity than even having close family relationships.

    Aerobic exercise can not only help you lose weight in all the right places but also gain something in one very important place: your brain.  A region of your brain that is essential to memory has been shown in a recent study to increase in volume after getting regular cardiovascular exercise. The research, which took place at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, demonstrated that when older people committed to a walking routine for a year, the hippocampus area of the brain -- which typically loses some mass over time as we age -- actually increased in size.

    Researchers genetically altered mice so they overproduced a stress hormone called "corticotrophin-releasing factor," or "CRF." In reaction to the increased stress, the mice turned gray and lost hair. But then, the scientists injected the mice with a mellow-out compound called astressin-B, which blocked production of the stress hormone. To the great surprise of the research team, one of the side effects was that the mice grew back their missing fur. The take-home message here is that stress and hair-loss can go hand-in-hand, and so reducing stress may be key in reducing hair loss.

    Scientists at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland have shown that the worse a person's untreated hearing impairment is, the greater their risk of developing dementia.1 It is not necessarily that the hearing loss directly causes the dementia, but the two conditions certainly seem to be independently associated. Clearly it is important to get our hearing tested regularly and use hearing aids if necessary. But there are other things we can do as well to keep dementia at bay.

    The latest study on perfluorocarbons (PFCs) has found that greater exposure to them may cause women to begin menopause years earlier. Premature menopause with an onset before the age of 40 has been shown to increase the risk of developing heart disease and osteoporosis.

    Participants in a recent study who regularly drank alcohol had, overall, a 29 percent lower incidence of dementia and a 42 percent reduction in occurrence of Alzheimer's compared to those who didn't touch the stuff. The results also revealed that less isn't necessarily more in this case. Those who drank two to three alcoholic beverages daily actually had a lower incidence of dementia than those who sipped just one. Surprisingly, it didn't matter much whether the drink of choice was rosè or rum; wine and beer offered no advantage over the stronger stuff.
