In her new book, The Neuroscientist Who Lost Her Mind, Barbara Lipska describes surviving cancer that had spread to her brain, and how the illness changed her cognition, character and, ultimately, her understanding of the mental illnesses she studies.
One spring morning in 2015, Barbara Lipska got up as usual, dyed her hair and went for a jog in her suburban Virginia neighbourhood.
But when she returned from a much longer than expected run, her husband Mirek was completely taken aback. Continue Reading
Headaches are one of the most common symptoms that patients report to their doctors, but their causes and manifestations vary so much that a diagnosis does little to help.
From the Greek hemi (“half”) and kranion (“skull”), migraine is associated with severe, throbbing, unilateral pain; an aversion to light and sound; and nausea and vomiting, all of which is aggravated by movement. But migraine may include or trigger many other symptoms. An attack may be announced by sudden exhaustion, food cravings, a foul mood, or what is called an aura, a neurological phenomenon that disrupts a migraineur’s vision with silvery squiggles and zigzags.
Joyce Ann Riley was welcomed into the world on July 31, 1948. Fittingly, she was born just outside Arkansas City, Kansas on the border with Oklahoma, in the heart of the United States. Eventually, Joyce would capture the hearts of millions of people around the world, including my own, becoming a trusted friend and mentor.
Her father owned a pharmacy while her mother was a stay-at-home mum. Joyce was the eldest of three children. One of her passions, as well as being on The Power Hour was quilting, a talent and pleasure inherited from her mother. Continue Reading
A novel immunotherapy drug is credited for successfully treating former President Jimmy Carter’s advanced melanoma. Instead of killing cancer cells, these drugs boost the patient’s immune system, which does the job instead.
Immunotherapy is cutting-edge cancer treatment, but the idea dates back more than 100 years, to a young surgeon who was willing to think outside the box.
His name was William Coley, and in the late summer of 1890 he was getting ready to examine a new patient at his practice in New York City.
There is a compelling amount of scientific research showing that over-vaccinating especially the elderly and infants is destructive to the brain due to overstimulating the immune system and also due to vaccine ingredients which aggravate the immune system.
It is known that as we get older the immune system begins to overactivate. Pro inflammatory cytokines which cause brain destruction begin to rise over the age of 50. Continue Reading
When I first became a Mum, I never questioned getting my children vaccinated. It was just what you did when you have children – you do what your doctor tells you, because they know best.
My husband and I had never been told that there could be any adverse reactions, only a bit of redness and swelling at the injection site. So as each of our six eldest children got progressively sicker after each vaccination, we never made that connection.
Out of our six vaccinated children, our 16, 12 and 10-year-old have moderate to severe Autism, our 25-year-old has ADHD, our 14-year-old has a severe language disorder, and our 20-year-old has severe mood swings.
Mike Adams: The Health Ranger, describe how ‘Big Pharma’ is terrified that you might discover a simple, powerful truth: You can prevent, reverse and CURE serious disease yourself! Your body is a powerful self-healing system, and your healing potential doesn’t depend on doctors, drugs or surgery. Continue Reading
Did you know that thousands of different foods, superfoods and spices naturally contain powerful anti-cancer nutrients? You can find hundreds of them right now at your local grocery store (but only if you know what to look for).
While the FDA ridiculously insists that foods can’t prevent or treat any disease, the real truth is that Mother Nature’s vast assortment of plants have been synthesizing anti-cancer nutrients for literally millions of years before the FDA and its corrupt regime even came into existence. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, spices and herbs offer a wealth of anti-cancer medicines created by Mother Nature.
Insulin resistance also raises your risk for heart disease, so it’s not surprising to find that heart disease is associated with Alzheimer’s as well.
Arterial stiffness (atherosclerosis) is associated with a hallmark process of Alzheimer’s, namely the build-up of beta-amyloid plaque in your brain. According to researcher Timothy Hughes, “the process of vascular ageing may predispose the brain to increased amyloid plaque build-up.”
Recent research also points out that heart disease increases your odds of developing Alzheimer’s — in fact, these two diseases share a number of risk factors. Continue Reading
Dr Sherri Tenpenny talks to Lew Rockwell about the true horror of mandatory vaccination. The discussion is wide-ranging, and includes one of the clearest explanations of the significance of the work of Dr Andrew Wakefield.
Dr Tenpenny points out that Dr Wakefield actually recommended that further study was required. He did not, at any point in his paper, suggest a causal ink between vaccines and autism. The observation he made, was based upon a group of children, who had developed gastrointestinal symptoms, following vaccination, which could be proven by biopsy. Parents had also reported to him that the children had regressed, to various degrees, along the autism spectrum, after vaccination. Continue Reading
