Addictions, Empathy And Altruism – What We Can Learn From Our Animal Friends

Activation of Brain Region Predicts Altruism.Empathy And Altruism – What We Can Learn From Our Animal Friends

-By A. Scott Roberts

The 12th step of AA asks for recovering addicts to share their experience and help others in the addiction trap. An important aspect of recovery is positive socialization which is now understood as being evolutionarily adaptive. We may often think that being altruistic always comes from feelings of empathy. But research indicates that there is more to consider. Read the rest of this entry »

6 Must-Do’s Before Medicating Your Child For ADHD

What-To-Do-Before-Treating-ADHD-With-Presrciption-Drugs-holistichealthnaturally.com_-826x432The fact of the matter is more than 4 million children are medicated with potentially dangerous pharmaceuticals designed only to treat “unwanted behavioral symptoms” as the result of an ADHD diagnosis.

Many Doctors believe that this scenario is creating a generation of kids that may never know true health and wellness of the mind/brain, body and spirit.  I would have to agree. But this can be changed. Read the rest of this entry »

Could Rheumatoid Arthritis be caused by a Mycoplasmal infection? Experts say yes.

handsofRA

One thing that just doesn’t set well with me personally is when “they” say: Sorry, but we don’t know what causes it.  “It” being anything really. I tend to think there is a cause, we just need to find it.

Perhaps it’s been known for years and just buried. That seems to be the case with many things I have dug up lately.

The latest being Rheumatoid Arthritis.

If you’re like me, you probably know someone that has been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Perhaps it’s even you.

My question is, were they ever told that a type of bacteria called a mycoplasma could at the very least be a co factor of the symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis? My guess is probably not.

So, could Rheumatoid Arthritis be exasperated or even caused by a virus or bacteria? hmmmm… this makes ya wonder:

Published in the Journal of Rheumatology in 1999, Doctors studied “mycoplasmal infections in blood of patients with rheumatoid arthritis” –

And here is what they came up with: “The results suggest that a high percentage of RA patients have systemic mycoplasmal infections. Furthermore, retroviruses and entero-pathogenic bacteria continue to be intensively discussed as possible aetiological factors of RA [40, 41].” 

Here’s the full length study that this came from.
http://rheumatology.oxfordjournals.org/content/38/6/504.full.pdf

Some experts seem to believe that these infections are co-factors, others like Dr. Joel Wallach, believe they are the cause.  Since RA is an inflammatory condition, and chronic inflammation is cause by an infection, it makes more sense to me that the cause is related to a mycoplasmal infection.

However, if you look at the list of “commonly” used drugs for R.A., you will mostly find Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatories. That’s like putting a bandaid on a gun shoot wound if you ask me. Those drugs will not kill off an infection. And in fact they will depress the immune system and cause a host of other nasty side effects.

In the study the doctors reference the use of a class of Antibiotics called minocycline for treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis. In the study the doctors also note that tetracycline compounds have “long been” used by Rheumatologists and their anti-rheumatic activity have been demonstrated. And yet they say they don’t know why patients respond to the antibiotics.

Well, duh. Because the antibiotics get to the cause, not just mask the symptoms.

Now remember, all antibiotics are not without risk. The damage that they can do in other areas of the body can be drastic. But those can be mitigated with probiotics and other gut healing elements.

Bottom line: Know the cause, find the cure.

 

 

To your best health!

More Thoughts from Mellisa McJunkin – Health and Wellness Advocate

Question: What are you without an immune system?
Answer: You are dead.

As morbid as it may sound, it’s true. When your immune system is weak you will get sick. When your immune system completely fails you will die.
