Discover the Magical Mushrooms That Fight Cancer, Heart Disease, Diabetes and More

Maitake and shiitake mushrooms look like a good addition to stir fries, but they are packed with nutrients that reduce cholesterol and blood sugar levels, fight cancer cells and strengthen the immune system. These mushrooms prove their health benefits over and over again – so how can they help you too?
Maitake
Maitake is among the “super foods” whose health benefits are known for thousands of years. It is rich in antioxidants and contains components called polysaccharides that benefit the immune system, cardiovascular system and even help fight cancer.
The name maitake comes from Japanese and means “dancing mushroom”. The Japanese used to say that the lucky person who finds the mushroom will dance with joy, as its benefits are priceless. Due to its special shape there have been many other nicknames like hen-of-the-woods, ram’s head and sheep’s head.
Maitake and cancer
Most studies in this field were made using medical extraction of the mushroom, which was found to encourage the creation of immune cells that destroy cancer cells and fight tumor development. The anti-cancer ability of maitake is attributed to its unique polysaccharides.
In 1997 it was found that maitake has an impact on the efficiency of chemotherapy, as it works synergistically with chemotherapy drug called mitomycin. It was also found that maitake has beneficial effect on cancer patients even if they discontinued the chemotherapy due to the severe side effects. A relief was also found from symptoms in cancer patients who have suffered a loss of appetite, vomiting, nausea and hair loss.

Starbucks customer says his mocha was labeled 'Diabetes here I come'

Starbucks customer says his mocha was labeled 'Diabetes here I come'

UPDATED April 11, 2018 8:30 a.m. PT with Starbucks' apology to the customer.
This is one way to sour a sweet morning coffee.
While Starbucks baristas are somewhat infamous for labeling customers’ cups with misspelled names, the note one Florida man found on his mocha this week was decidedly less humorous.
The customer, who was interviewed anonymously by Florida's Action News Jax, said he was served a grande white mocha at a St. Augustine-area Starbucks labeled with the words "Diabetes here I come" where a customer's name would normally be.
The customer told Action News that the note was especially painful because his two sisters have Type 1 diabetes.
“That first word just automatically brought the picture of both sisters in my head, and I was taken aback,” the man said. “Just the struggles they went through and all the doctor appointments they had."
A Starbucks spokesperson told Mashable the company has reached out to the customer to apologize.
"We strive to provide an inclusive and positive experience for our customers, and were disappointed to learn of this incident," the spokesperson said in a statement. "We are working directly with the customer to apologize for his experience, and with our partners (employees) to ensure this does not happen again."
The customer said he didn't order the drink in-person — an employee at his workplace picks up coffees for the office — but that he did personally return the coffee, with a note.
"2 of my sisters are diabetic, so ... not funny," he wrote on the cup, telling Action News he isn't Continue reading

Sunscreen is KILLING people by blocking vitamin D production which prevents cancer, diabetes, kidney disorders and more

Sunscreen is KILLING people by blocking vitamin D production which prevents cancer, diabetes, kidney disorders and more

(Natural News) Excessive sunscreen use might be playing a major role in the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency and related adverse health conditions, an analysis published in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association revealed. According to researchers from the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Touro University, California, vitamin D prevalence in the U.S. showed a significant increase from 45 percent to 75 percent over the last 25 years. The research team also noted that 95 percent of African Americans have inadequate vitamin D levels.
The research team noted that using thick, highly-protective sunscreen may be behind the reason in the prevalent vitamin D deficiency, as the chemicals block the beneficial sunlight from reaching the skin and stimulating vitamin D production. The health experts stressed that sunscreens containing SPF 15 or higher diminished vitamin D production by 99 percent. According to the research team, the vitamin provided anti-inflammatory effects and is essential in the body’s immune function. The health experts cautioned that this lack in vitamin D could lead to the onset of a host of adverse medical conditions. However, the researchers noted that simple brisk walking and eating foods high in vitamin D are enough to make up for vitamin deficiency.
“People are spending less time outside and, when they do go out, they’re typically wearing sunscreen, which essentially nullifies the body’s ability to produce vitamin D. While we want people to protect themselves against skin cancer, there are healthy, moderate levels of unprotected sun ex Continue reading

How 6 People Reversed Their Diabetes In 30 Days

How 6 People Reversed Their Diabetes In 30 Days

There’s a good chance you know someone with diabetes give how common it is today, and I think it’s important people start getting to know what others have been doing to treat and cure their diabetes so people can find out if these solutions can work for them.
When I think of diabetes, I don’t just think of people who already have the condition, but I also think of preventing it. What if we could not only prevent diabetes before it happened, but also reverse it once it shows up?
Diabetes is one of the most rampant diseases of our time. According to the American Diabetes Association, in 2012 29.1 million Americans, or 9.3% of the population, had diabetes. [1]
In fact, diabetes is growing at a fairly fast rate. A study completed by the CDC & Research Triangle Institute concluded that If recent trends in diabetes prevalence rates continue linearly over the next 50 years, future changes in the size and demographic characteristics of the U.S. population will lead to dramatic increases in the number of Americans with diagnosed diabetes. [2]
According to the current mainstream approach, the major goal in treating diabetes is to minimize any elevation of blood sugar (glucose) without causing abnormally low levels of blood sugar. Type 1 diabetes is treated with insulin, exercise, and a diabetic diet. Type 2 diabetes is treated first with weight reduction, a diabetic diet, and exercise. [3] Currently the belief is “Diabetes is a chronic disease that has no cure.” – The American Diabetes Association.

5 Ways Diabetes Wreaks Havoc On Your Entire Life

5 Ways Diabetes Wreaks Havoc On Your Entire Life

You only have to walk in the shoes of a person with type 1 or type 2 diabetes for about 35 minutes (or the time it takes to eat an apple) to realize that this disease is about so much more than just diet and exercise. In fact, diabetes can affect every aspect of your life; here are five ways it wreaks havoc on your emotions:
1. Diabetes is nonstop, 24/7.
Your blood sugars don’t simply rise because you ate candy — they can rise from a few bites of the world’s healthiest whole-grain bran, or a freshly plucked-off-the-tree organic apple. Your blood sugar can rise simply from a stressful day at work and an increase in your cortisol levels. Your blood sugar can rise from the adrenaline of a roller-coaster ride or the hormones we all produce around 4 a.m. every day. Your blood sugar can interrupt your life at the most inopportune times: when you’re trying to get your kids ready for school, when you’re speaking at your grandfather’s memorial service, or in the middle of the night when you’re so tired you can barely think straight. Even healthy activities like exercise can mean you have to work even harder to keep your blood sugar in a safe and healthy range. Diabetes never leaves you alone. Everything you do can impact your blood sugar, for better or worse.
2. The pressure to be perfect is impossible to endure.
Oh, sure, your brother is doing the “cave man diet” because everybody at his CrossFit gym is doing it, too, but to a non-diabetic it’s a choice. Yes, we all need to make healthy choices, but people with diabetes are commanded and lectured and threatened Continue reading
