Copper and estrogen exist in the body in a direct relationship. When estrogen increases, copper increases as well. Ceruloplasmin, the protein that binds to copper, should also increase with these levels, but its efficiency can decline over time. When ceruloplasmin is not functioning efficiently, it does not pick up free radicals in the body. Those free radicals are allowed to roam around and can cause oxidative stress, and then diseases can develop.
Scientists at Massachusetts General Hospital recently discovered a “strong link” between vitamin D levels and opioid addiction.
Researchers at University of Queensland found that the venom of the deadly funnel web spider can actually be an important resource for medical treatment. A protein in the venom, Hi1a, can reduce brain damage from strokes and block the “death signal” of heart attacks.
Gut Health and Strokes
It's not just a gut feeling. There is tangible evidence that CFS Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is either accompanied or caused by gram negative enterobacteria that migrates through the gut wall. Normally kept in check by tight gap junctions in the intestines, these enterobacteria translocate easily through a permeable mucosa membrane causing elevated IgM and IgA markers for endotoxins in the blood. This in turn causes systemic oxidative stress.
What do these neurodegenerative diseases share in common?

There is no debate that ADHD diagnoses have significantly increased over the past decade, but why? According to the American Psychiatric Association says that 5% of children have ADHD. However, other studies in the US have estimated much higher numbers. For example, in a 2016 Centers for disease control and Prevention study, scientists found that 6.1 million children (9.4%) ages 2-17 years old living in the US had been diagnosed with ADHD. So why is there such an increase of ADHD diagnosis?
Peptide therapy is an evolving, cutting edge, medical science in which specific, bio-identical, protein amino acid sequences called "peptides" are used to repair, regenerate, support and improve the structure and function of different parts of the mind and body.
Over the past couple of years the culture around vaccines has changed. It has become a challenge for families to have a rational and transparent conversation regarding vaccines that is not fueled by anger or fear so people are avoiding the necessary conversations regarding them.
