Dr Vladimir Zelenko Says His Cancer Has Spread, Is Exploring Experimental, Alternative Treatment Options

Dr. Zev Zelenko, who gained national attention for his “ Zelenko Protocol ” to treat Covid-19 infections at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, says he has suffered a significant setback in his fight again cancer. We are so sorry to have to post this update from Zelenko Freedom Foundation: " It is with immense sorrow that we announce the passing of our founder Dr. Vladimir “Zev” Zelenko ." “Unfortunately, my cancer has progressed and spread to my remaining lung, and may have also spread to my left hip, and low[er] back. I will have biopsies of the hip and back soon,” he said. “There are experimental and alternative treatment options that I am exploring. I feel good and have no fear. I may have to scale down some of my smaller media events but fully intend to stay in the fight as long as I have consciousness.” “It has been four years since I was supposed to die. Every day since has been miraculous and I attribute my continuou

Lutein and Zeaxanthin to Lower Dementia and Alzheimer's Risk? (2022 Study)

Dementia risk was linked with blood levels of certain antioxidants, an observational study showed. Higher serum levels of lutein+zeaxanthin and beta-cryptoxanthin -- two types of carotenoids -- were tied to a lower risk of incident dementia, reported May Beydoun, PhD, MPH, of the NIH National Institute on Aging in Baltimore, Maryland, and colleagues, in  Neurology . Findings were attenuated in adjusted analyses, suggesting socioeconomic status, lifestyle, and diet quality may mediate the associations. When oxidative stress occurs at an abnormally high level, consuming antioxidants may help protect cells of the body, including brain cells, from damage, Beydoun noted. "Carotenoids, which are the pigments found in orange and yellow plants, are converted by the body into vitamin A. We found that the most important carotenoids in potentially protecting the brain may be lutein+zeaxanthin and beta-cryptoxanthin," she told  MedPage Today . "Unlike other studies, we did not analy

How to Avoid Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals

Endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are similar in structure to natural hormones such as the female sex hormone estrogen, the male sex hormone androgen and thyroid hormones, which allow them to interfere with development, 1   reproduction, neurological functioning, metabolism, satiety and your immune system function, and much more. 2 For example, they may block certain hormonal signals, alter your hormone levels or change the way your natural hormones travel through your body. As noted in a World Health Organization report published in 2012, 3 , 4  the effects of EDCs on your hormonal systems “can lead to obesity, infertility or reduced fertility, learning and memory difficulties, Type 2 diabetes or cardiovascular disease, as well as a variety of other diseases." What’s more, since hormones operate at parts per million and parts per billion concentrations, the Endocrine Society warns there may be no safe level of exposure for many EDCs, 5

3 Natural Foods to Prevent and Improve Leukemia

If someone unfortunately suffers from leukemia, how can one treat it? And what natural foods can help prevent leukemia? Leukemia is usually treated by chemotherapy or transplantation. As we all know, the leukemia patient’s white blood cells are affected by external harmful factors during their development process and undergo genetic mutations. As a result, they escape the normal cycle of cell life, and start multiplying indefinitely. The genes are the code of life, and the mutation of genes touches on some things in the nature of our life. In order to change the abnormal state of our cells, besides taking medication, we need to use some more natural methods to improve our health. As traditional Chinese medicine has always emphasized the homology of medicine and food, we will now introduce a few ingredients that have been found to be effective in improving leukemia. Mangosteen (Xanthone) There is an element in mangosteen called xanthone. In a  study  published in the Journal of Natural

Quality Sleep May Protect Against Alzheimer's

One of the hallmarks of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is aggregated and typically misfolded proteins in the brain. A 2022 study 1   published in Translational Neurodegeneration discovered a relationship between the system that clears these misfolded proteins and the progression of ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Other neurodegenerative diseases that may be impacted by the system include Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer’s disease. 2  These share many physiological similarities despite looking different clinically and having a different disease progression. Approximately one-third of the proteins made in the body on any given day are misfolded. 3 , 4  However, your body has mechanisms to refold those proteins to help prevent disease. In a collaborative editorial, scientists led by the Department of Experimental Neurodegeneration at the University Medical Center Gottingen
