Protozoans encompass a large classification of parasites and are microscopic in size. More people around the world are killed or harmed by protozoan infections than by any other type of parasitic disease. Because they are found in almost every kind of soil environment, from peat bogs to arid desert sands, and can be found in the deep seas of tropic regions as well as the frigid waters of the Arctic the chances of exposure are high. Some species of protozoa are a natural part of the microbial flora of animals, living in the gut of insects and mammals (including humans), though there are some that can cause disease and illness in our bodies. The blood of healthy people contains antibodies against these organisms but in certain susceptible individuals protozoans may migrate from the gastro-intestinal tract into the blood and then into the joints and other body tissues. What can you do to protect yourself? [Read more →]

A parasite is an organism that derives its food, nutrition, and shelter by living in or on another organism. In biology the parasitic way of life is very common and humans may be a host to over 100 different types of parasites. Most people seem to think that a parasitic infection is uncommon, especially in North America, and prefer to not discuss parasites as it’s an unpleasant topic to consider. The truth of the matter is that parasites are prevalent, not restricted to third world countries, and there are many species that show no socioeconomic boundaries and can be found in all climates.

The body is like poetry in that the first reading of a poem means something different than the second and third time it is read.

What has this got to do with chemical detoxification? As we continue to reread our bodies, we are finding how everyday chemicals are responsible for difficult and unexplained health problems.

We’re happy to share this guest post from Bert Phillips from Weitz & Luxenberg.
Victims of mesothelioma often suffer much more from the results of their cancer. These effects, in combination with the side effects of the cancer treatments themselves, can result in a battle with disease that is much more difficult to win. The inundation of society with pharmaceuticals and treatments that are not a far departure from poison, often limits the options a patient feels they have available to them. However, there are numerous natural aids and herbs that can be very effective during mesothelioma treatments. It is not known what effect combining traditional medicine with holistic approaches has on the life expectancy of mesothelioma sufferers, but it can ease the discomfort and heighten the effectiveness of other treatments.
Numerous groups such as CANCERactive and Cancer Watch have conducted many studies on the effectiveness of herbs and their role as a mesothelioma treatment. Many have had surprisingly good results despite the fact that the FDA has never approved an herb as a legitimate treatment for any type of cancer.

Maca is an adaptogenic herb that has been grown and cultivated high in the Andean Mountains of Peru for thousands of years and while its benefits have long been known there, only recently is the word reaching around the world.
