Vitamin B12 Dr Mercola

Vitamin B12

Many experts previously believed that strict vegetarians were the primary group that could develop a vitamin B12 deficiency. If you had adequate stores of this important nutrient in your body, the experts believed you were “safe” for many years from developing a B12 deficiency.

Now we know better.

Vitamin B12 depletion and deficiency are much more common than previously thought, especially in the over-60 population. In fact, it’s believed that almost one in four people over 60 have deficient levels of this vital vitamin.

Equally disturbing are emerging signs that other age groups harbor suboptimal blood levels of B12 as well.

Why is vitamin B12 deficiency such a big deal?

5 Ways to Prevent Arthritis Pain

5 Ways to Prevent Arthritis Pain  

If you already have arthritis you know it all too well…

Not being able to bend over and pick up the keys you dropped or give your grandson a hug… Calling someone to the kitchen to open the jar of pasta sauce for you… Putting off that trip because you don’t think you’ll be able to walk very far…

But worst of all? The excruciating pain.

And if that’s not bad enough, prescription drugs offer little help—with terrifying side effects. How do you feel about potential seizures…bleeding from your rectum…lung infections…extreme fatigue…impotence…heart failure? Not good? Neither do we.

Oxytocin: The Key to a Stress-Free Relationship?

Oxytocin: The Key to a Stress-Free Relationship?

Oxytocin used to be known as the hormone that made mothers grow attached to their babies. But everyone releases oxytocin. Men make it in the same regions of the brain – the hypothalamus – as women. We may also make some in our reproductive tissues.

When you have an orgasm you release waves of oxytocin. It's interesting to me that your brain would produce a hormone that makes you feel trust right after you have an orgasm. You might be tempted to think it's an evolutionary mandate. That if you have an orgasm it means that you're safe and that nature wants you to stay with that one mate.

Bone Broth Dr Mercola

By Dr. Mercola

If you happen to be in New York City, you can stop by Brodo, a trendy new to-go restaurant devoted to selling broth.1 One cup will set you back about $8… or you can make a gallon (that’s 16 cups) of this healing staple food right in your own kitchen for far less than the equivalent $128.

There’s no doubt that bone broth’s popularity as a superfood is growing. More than a few New York City bars are even featuring bone broth shots and cocktails.2 But there’s nothing “new” about it.

Natures Own Blood Pressure Cure

Nature’s Own
Blood Pressure Cure

I once put a patient on a treadmill to give her a test and nothing happened.

She got extremely short of breath, but her heart didn’t respond at all. It was still at 80 bpm (beats per minute). She couldn’t challenge her heart and make it stronger because of a drug her cardiologist had given her.

Over time, beta-blockers will turn your heart into a fat, lazy, incompetent water balloon. You already had high blood pressure to deal with, now you have a gross de-conditioning of your heart.

How did this happen? Because no one has messed up modern medicine more than cardiologists.
