• Solving The Thyroid Puzzle

    Posted October 25, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Low thyroid hormone levels can result in mental confusion. Which only adds to the bewildering state of affairs when it comes to recognizing and rectifying low or high thyroid hormone levels.

    While thyroid hormone dysfunction affects 1% of the general population it affects 10% of senior adults (10% females; 6% males).

    Many millions of Americans rely on thyroid hormone replacement. But about as many (13 million estimated) may have low thyroid levels and don’t know it.

  • Dyslexia: It’s An Early Zinc Deficiency

    Posted October 20, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    The origin of dyslexia, the neurobiologically-rooted learning disorder that impairs reading words and letters (word blindness) but does not affect general intelligence, is no longer a mystery. As background information, dyslexia is said to affect 5-10% of the population. Some 70-80% of people with poor reading skills are likely dyslexic.

    News headlines today herald a breakthrough in the understanding of the biological roots of this disorder. Most scientific investigations into the origins of dyslexia have been focused on the brain. The discovery announced today has to do with eye dominance.

  • Female Workers Exposed To 8-Hour EMF Radiation From Computer Monitors Experience Thyroid Hormone Decline: Reversed By Zinc Supplementation

    Posted October 17, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Sensationalized news reports about theoretical radiation health hazards posed by electronic devices like cell phones, computer monitors and electric power lines often alarm the public for no reason other than attracting readers or viewers. The reported experiments involve doses of radiation far beyond what users of electronic devices are exposed to. Or the experiments are performed with lab animals or cells in a lab dish, hardly real world environments.

    However, a recently published study sets off real alarm bells. Researchers report that low-dose EMF (electromagnetic field) radiation emitted from computer monitors adversely affects thyroid hormone levels in females, a problem that was surprisingly reversed by zinc supplementation.

  • Do We Have A Cure For Alzheimer’s Disease?

    Posted September 22, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    No, the substance of this report doesn’t emanate from Harvard Medical School and is being ignored and will predictably be dismissed by uninformed physicians whose livelihood is threatened by such a discovery.

    Denial and ridicule is the first phase of any scientific discovery, followed strong opposition and finally self-evident acceptance.  This discovery hasn’t even reached the first stage as it goes ignored.

    The acronym for the National Institutes of Health — NIH – more accurately means: “not invented here.”  The covert mission of the NIH is to block any remedy outside of synthetic molecules from gaining FDA approval.

    I can hear the jabber in the doctors’ lounge at the hospital where a 67-year old cancer patient in remission from prostate cancer underwent an explorative procedure to check for recurrence.

    “What was the man thinking?  How could he mindlessly subject himself to these ridiculous alternative therapies,” the doctors must have been asking themselves.

    The patient, 67 years of age had been cutting up 70 apricot kernels for 5 years the news report says, and also consumed commercially made herbal fruit kernel tablets, in an attempt to keep his prostate cancer at bay.

  • Mind Bending Drugs For Psycho Diets

    Posted September 10, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    There is such a thing as a mental depression diet.  It’s called the American diet.  In response, physicians hand out anti-depressant pills making patients dependent on these pills for the remainder of their lives when their calorie-rich/nutrient poor diet is causing their problems.  Where does depression/anxiety emanate from? Not the brain but the intestines, what is now called the gut-brain axis.  In a misdirection, mood-altering drugs directly target neurotransmitters in the brain.

    Altered gut bacteria early in life, particularly from over-use of antibiotics that literally sterilize the gut, and modern sugar-laden carbohydrate-rich diets by virtue of their generation of low-grade chronic inflammation, increase the risk for a depressed mood and eventually losing one’s mind later in life.

    The most recent survey of dietary supplement use in the U.S. has just been published and it’s a shocker.

    Almost a third (29%) of surveyed individuals that take dietary supplements use 4 or more of them on a regular basis.

    While a considerable portion of postmenopausal women take calcium supplements about half as many take a mineral balancing magnesium supplement while a far greater number take vitamin D pills that help prevent calcifications that can possibly be induced by supplemental calcium.

    Enslaved By Vocation Or Addicted By Choice To Hours In Front Of A Computer Monitor? You Had Better Down A Lutein Pill Every Day

    A recently published report cites the fact that ~35% of people born 1965-1996 and now living in developed countries spend at least 9 hours a day in front of digital devices. Such intense use of digital devices has been found to have undesirable effects on sleep quality, alertness during waking hours and also fatigue, headaches, muscular, skeletal and visual strain.

  • Garlic abolishes risk for intravenous catheter infections in the intensive care unit

    Posted August 17, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Hospital acquired (nosocomial) infections are common, particularly in the intensive care unit. Researchers gave a 400-milligram garlic pill to 47 patients and a placebo pill to 47 patients admitted to the ICU. Venous catheters were cultured to determine infection at the venous entry site and urine samples were taken. Here are the results of that study.

    Garlic Placebo
    Number of subjects 47 47
    Infected venous catheter tip culture result 0 5
    Infected urine culture 2 (5.7%) 6 ((12.3%)

  • Every Individual With Macular Degeneration Should Supplement Their Diet With Omega-3 Fish Oil To Avoid The Advanced Stage Of The Disease

    Posted August 6, 2017: by Bill Sardi

    Researchers are making a link between advanced stage macular degeneration and a hormone secreted from central body fat.  The ramifications of this discovery are profound and are likely to save the sight of millions of senior adults.

    First some background information.  When light receptor (photoreceptor) cells at the back of the eyes are deprived of oxygen, new blood vessels outcrop to counter this problem but invade the bloodless visual center of the eye (the macula).  The outcropping of these new blood vessels is called neovascularization or angiogenesis.

    Eye doctors call this wet macular degeneration, which is the fast progressing neovascular form of the disease that can permanently destroy vision, leaving a subject legally blind.
