New Series on COVID Therapy Studies – Introduction | Sanctuary Functional Medicine

by health and nutrition advice journalist
With the onslaught by COVID and its coinciding onslaught of self-proclaimed experts with every opinion under the sun, I choose to respond with a series of research study reports so you can choose for yourself. Each edition will bring a few studies describing possible therapies for COVID under investigation or reported in past research.

We also mistakenly believe that the salad we ate for lunch gave us food poisoning, that our boss fired us because he didn’t like us, and that we’re depressed because we don’t have enough money. […]

by health and nutrition advice journalist
The day may come when dentists enter the field of Alzheimer’s therapy thanks to this breaking research.  While past studies have linked the mouth bacteria,  porphyromonas gingivalis, heart disease, this study ties several convincing lines of evidence to implicate this bacteria in the development of Alzheimer’s disease.  This particular bacteria can either colonize our mouths or dig deeper and contribute to gingivitis (gum inflammation) in a large percentage of the population.  When we brush our teeth or eat, these and other bacteria can be found floating in our blood stream for a short time until our immune systems clean up.  While studies are […]

These diseases are perpetuated by subsidies of the wrong kinds of foods—like sugar and flour—making them cheaper and more widely available while creating a vicious cycle of poor health. It’s social detriments to health like this that support a sick-care system, as opposed to empowered wellness. My guest on this week’s episode of The Doctor’s Farmacy, Dr. Toby Cosgrove, shares his decades of experience in working […]
