Viva vagus: Wandering nerve could lead to range of therapies. With outposts in nearly every organ and a direct line into the brain stem, the vagus nerve is the nervous system’s superhighway.

Viva vagus: Wandering nerve could lead to range of therapies

About 80 percent of its nerve fibers — or four of its five “lanes” — drive information from the body to the brain. Its fifth lane runs in the opposite direction, shuttling signals from the brain throughout the body. Doctors have long exploited the nerve’s influence on the brain to combat epilepsy and depression. Electrical stimulation of the vagus through a surgically implanted device has already been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a therapy for patients who don’t get relief from existing treatments. Now, researchers are taking a closer look at the nerve to see if stimulating its fibers can improve treatments for rheumatoid arthritis, SUPER-HIGHWAY The vagus nerve runs from the brain stem down the neck and into the abdomen, reaching a slew of organs in the process. Nicole Rager Fuller heart failure, diabetes and even intractable hiccups.

She Used to Be In A Wheelchair - The TED Talk That Comes With a Warning. By Heather Callaghan Recently, I wanted to share the great news about people who were actually successfully reversing their ALS, also called Lou Gehrig’s.

She Used to Be In A Wheelchair - The TED Talk That Comes With a Warning

It turns out, people are also reversing another neurodegenerative disease – Multiple Sclerosis. Against all odds, and without much success in the conventional medical system, some people are discovering a way back to life, foregoing the belief in the typical death-sentence prognosis. They make connections about auto-immune conditions, the brain and the nervous system. They make connections, using an array of research studies and their own bodies, experimenting with specific nutrients and lifestyle changes. Below you will find a couple talks that show how people are reversing MS – specifically, Dr. Recently, TED changed its talk protocols basically eschewing anything that, to them, hinted at “pseudo-science” or unproven theories.

Proof That People Are Reversing ALS, Lou Gehrig's. By Heather Callaghan I mentioned the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in a recent article highlighting the social guiding that came with all the “disease awareness” we’ve been involuntarily immersed in via the media in the last few weeks.

Proof That People Are Reversing ALS, Lou Gehrig's

ALS meaning Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” meaning in short, a progressive neurodegenerative disease. Those challenged during the campaign were compelled to dump a bucket of ice water on their heads while video recording and challenging three more people to do the same, or else pay $100 to ALS research for the cure. Pictured: Steve Shackel, diagnosed 1994 As Dr. One of my friends had this to say: For those doing ice bucket challenges for ALS, here is some relevant information you should know. Then Nick Brannigan, in his newest article, “Boycott the Ice Bucket Challenge and Truly Support Those with ALS,” reminds us of a few reasons not to simply “throw money.”

Fasting-Like Diet Has Profound Effect On Autoimmune and Inflammatory Conditions Like MS. By Heather Callaghan | Natural Blaze According to a human study, a fasting-like diet switches on a process in which the body kills bad cells and begins to generate new healthy ones Researchers believe that evidence is mounting that a diet which mimics cyclical fasting has way more health benefits than mere weight loss.

A new USC-led study shows that it may reduce symptoms of multiple sclerosis…and beyond.

Valter Longo, the study’s lead author and professor who directs the USC Longevity Institute at the Davis School of Gerontology stated: We started thinking: If [a fasting-mimicking diet] kills a lot of immune cells and turns on the stem cells, is it possible that maybe it will kill the bad ones and then generate new good ones? Multiple sclerosis is Lyme disease: Anatomy of a cover-up. Perhaps the biggest ongoing medical scandal of the past hundred years is the fact that it has been known since 1911 that Multiple Sclerosis is caused by a bacterium, and that the Big-Pharma-controlled medical-industrial complex covered this up in order to make money selling symptom relievers to MS patients.

Multiple sclerosis is Lyme disease: Anatomy of a cover-up

At the lower levels there is no cover-up at all, but simply human nature at work, as we wrote about here, to dispel the notion that we are "conspiracy theorists". Since 1911, overwhelmingly much medical research has been conducted where living Borrelia bacteria were found in the brains of people who were diagnosed with MS. **** I spent more than 100 hours writing and researching this article. This article does not "need to be spread further", esp. not by people who turned plagiarism into a business model. This article is here for everyone to easily find and read. Time and time again. Then why isn't this common knowledge? Let's examine the reality on the ground. 1. 2. 3. 4. Viva vagus: Wandering nerve could lead to range of therapies.
