Prevent and Treat Glaucoma with Vitamin C

Don't wait until you notice symptoms of glaucoma to begin protecting your eyes. The eyes require 25% more vitamin C to continue to function normally.

Your eyes have a drainage system in which fluid flows into and out of the eye. When this system doesn’t function properly, fluid can’t escape the eye. This causes pressure to build up and the optic nerve can be damaged. This is called glaucoma. There are many different causes of glaucoma, some of which are still not fully understood. Some triggers can cause glaucoma to happen suddenly while others happen so slowly, that you may not even notice until it’s too late.

Arthritis Vitamins Inflammation Hands

Inflammation not only hurts, but it destroys tissues and causes disease. Learn how to avoid chronic inflammation with vitamins and supplements.

Inflammation is your body’s main defense mechanism, meant to anticipate, intercept and destroy invading microorganisms. Inflammation causes redness, swelling, heat and pain. Inflammation helps your immune system fight invaders and heal injuries, but can be dangerous if it becomes chronic.

Inflammation becomes a danger when it is brought on by malfunctions of the immune system. Autoimmune diseases and allergies are good examples. Out of the ten leading causes of death in the United States, chronic, low-level inflammation causes seven of them. This includes Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, nephritis, heart disease, cancer, stroke, and chronic lower respiratory disease.

Fluorescent Lights Allergies Autoimmunity

Are fluorescent lights making you sick?

Our skin is an organ meant to react to our environment. We should not be surprised that things in our bodies change based on what the skin “sees”. What the eyes see also affects us. Certain inner-ear conditions, vertigo, epilepsy, dyslexia, and many psychological conditions are affected by fluorescent and UV light. Fluorescent light exposure is known to affect patients with autoimmune disorders, causing flare-up and activation of their disease. Research has yet to give us the exact mechanism of action that causes the change in the immune systems of these patients, but the theories are consistent with the symptoms that people are experiencing.

Sick and tired of being sick and tired?

How Vitamin C Deficiency Is Sucking the Life Out of You.

If you are deficient in vitamin C, you will quickly notice the signs of scurvy setting in. These symptoms are synonymous with what most people consider “feeling old”. First, you’ll be unmotivated to do anything. You’ll be tired, lethargic, and back-and-forth between depressed and anxious or irritable. Next, you will notice receding or spongy gums, bleeding gums, and bleeding from mucous membranes. This is the collagen matrix that holds your teeth securely in place breaking down. If you start getting sores on your thighs and legs, you are in very dangerous territory, as your body is completely breaking down, inside and out.

February 18th, 2014

Frustrated with Diet and Exercise. Leptin Diet.

Even healthy snacks and meals can cause weight gain, high triglycerides, obesity, and diabetes. Here's the answer you've been searching for.

In yesterday’s article Basic Magnesium Deficiency Causes Obesity and Diabetes, we discussed how leptin is responsible for telling your brain when you’re full, when you have the correct nutrients and fat, and when to stop making insulin. Leptin resistance leads to insulin resistance, diabetes, and obesity.

Many people struggle with dieting for a variety of reasons, but nothing is more frustrating than doing everything right for a prolonged period of time and still not losing any weight. When exercise, cutting calories, counting carbs, and carefully following a diet plan have failed you, it is time to take a look at your health.

Avoid Diabetes and Obesity by Making a Few Simple Changes in Your Habits

Obesity is a complex condition. People that suffer from obesity also suffer from lethargy, stress and excess hunger, because an obese body’s need for energy and nutrients cannot be fulfilled by food. Obesity is actually a combination of conditions that lead to heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.


It may be surprising, but most obese people are actually suffering from gross malnutrition. It is very hard to consume an excess number of calories eating nutrient dense healthy foods. Most people become overweight by eating processed foods. The nutritional content, hormones, chemicals, pesticides, and lack of fiber in these foods leaves the body thinking that it always needs more, because it’s not getting what it needs. A lack of vitamins and nutrients in the diet causes the brain to signal the body to store fat, stay hungry, and slow down metabolism.
