Cellular Stress and Adaptive Cellular Capacity

The mechanism by which a cell dies, that is, apoptosis, necrosis, pyroptosis, or autophagic cell death, often depends on its ability to cope with the conditions to which it is exposed. The adaptive capacity of a cell ultimately determines its fate when it comes under stress. The strength or what we can call a cells adaptive … Continue reading Cellular Stress and Adaptive Cellular Capacity

Slow, Steady & Easy Breathing

All doctors should know that chronically and even seriously ill people with dangerous acute infections will benefit immediately from controlling the quantity of air going into and out of a patient’s lungs. With a simple breathing device—based on CO2 physiology—in the space of 20 minutes a day, one can begin, quite quickly, to get control … Continue reading Slow, Steady & Easy Breathing

Oxygen and Cancer

We can live a long time without food, a couple of days without drinking, but life without breath is measured in minutes. Something so essential deserves our full attention but rarely gets it unless you are a yoga practitioner. Breath is the most important of all the bodily functions and without it we simply are … Continue reading Oxygen and Cancer

Healing Ourselves with Oxygen

Oxygen therapy is as wonderful as it is because more oxygen translates into more cellular energy, more healing energy and more energy to help us feel relaxed and perform better in life. Importantly enough when ample oxygen rushes into oxygen deficient cells oxygen is no longer the limiting reagent for detoxification of cellular poisons that … Continue reading Healing Ourselves with Oxygen

Magic Minerals for Health and Medicine

This essay is not about MMS (Magical Mineral Supplement), which I have written about before. MMS is not something that ever attracted me; certainly, it is hard to stand its smell. What this article is about are the real magic minerals, which together bring about the miracle of life. Plants often know better than people … Continue reading Magic Minerals for Health and Medicine

Iodine, Metabolism and Oxygen

Though doctors and people do not normally associate iodine with oxygen, we have to see that iodine-carrying thyroid hormones are essential for oxygen-based metabolism. First increases of iodine and thyroid hormones increase red blood cell mass and increase the oxygen disassociation from hemoglobin.[1] Thyroid hormones have a significant influence on erythropoiesis, which is the process … Continue reading Iodine, Metabolism and Oxygen

Main Reasons Iodine Supplementation is Essential

We knew a hundred years ago that we needed more iodine and governments started putting a tiny bit in table salt. It was not enough and after the nuclear accident at Fukushima, we need more because of the radioactive iodine released into the environment. Humans in the 21st Century have an absolute need for iodine … Continue reading Main Reasons Iodine Supplementation is Essential

Wonderful World of Bicarbonate and CO2

My book Sodium Bicarbonate is not only about sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), but also about magnesium bicarbonate and to a lesser degree potassium bicarbonate and calcium bicarbonate. However, the star of the show in this book is bicarbonate. The second star of the show is carbon dioxide (CO2). Most of the conjugate acid of bicarbonate … Continue reading Wonderful World of Bicarbonate and CO2

Diabetes – Acid Conditions and Treatment with Sodium Bicarbonate

A highly acidic pH level (created by all the above) puts the pancreas, liver, and all the body’s organs at risk. Because of the important role played by the liver in removing acid waste from the body, liver function is particularly at risk when acids accumulate. When acidity prevents the liver and pancreas from regulating … Continue reading Diabetes – Acid Conditions and Treatment with Sodium Bicarbonate

Epigenetic Mechanism May Reprogram Heart to Fail

Heart disease is one of the most prevalent ailments among Americans, and can often be deadly. According to the CDC, about 1 in 4 deaths is directly related to heart disease, and it is the leading cause of death among both men and women in the US. Risk factors that contribute to the development of … Continue reading Epigenetic Mechanism May Reprogram Heart to Fail
