Holy Hormones Journal: Endocrine health – actually neuro-endocrine-immune health is crucial to body functioning. Those three systems are governed by hormones that carry chemical messages based on circadian rhythms. If women’s physiology was included in the health care model this would be have known years ago. They should have asked/included women? We would be able Continue Reading …
Holy Hormones Journal! It has been another ‘hinky’ week in Gardasil land. First of all we are seeing bills popping up in state legislatures threatening to take parental rights away for vaccination. No surprise there! The Pharmaceutical companies are the ‘last man standing.’ They are the only ones with money to spend… and spend it Continue Reading …
symptoms of Chronic Lyme disease Complex or its co-infections may remain unseen or dormant until the individual is weakened by a trauma. This could be anything ranging from child birth or injury (like car accident) to something like the death of someone close, a divorce, or even a vaccine (as seen among children with weakened immune systems.)
It’s common knowledge that too little sleep can increase our odds of getting sick, but a new study sheds light on just how direct the connection is. Researchers found that the body’s circadian clock controls an essential immune system gene in mice — a gene that helps the body ward off bacteria and viruses.
“People intuitively know that when their sleep patterns are disturbed, they are more likely to get sick,” study author Erol Fikrig, professor of epidemiology at the Yale School of Medicine, said in a press release. “It does appear that disruptions of the circadian clock influence our susceptibility to pathogens.”
The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) has learned that Merck recently funded a study conducted by Dr. Chun Chao from Kaiser Permanente. USA Today reported: “Study: No link between HPV vaccine and autoimmune disorders” on January 28, 2012. In the opening paragraph, the story says that “The human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine Gardasil does not trigger autoimmune disorders.”
Should the reader believe the report? Is it possible that the researchers, who conducted the study, are biased?
All cases were female. Three of the 12 cases were identified as having pre-existing medical conditions associated with tic disorders. Two of the three cases, who were tic free for a period of time, experienced an exacerbation of tic symptoms during this time period. The third case was identified as having a previous diagnosis of Tourette’s disorder and did not have a new onset of tic symptoms, but rather an acceleration of on-going tics during this time period. Onsets of tic symptoms ranged from May 2011 to December 2011 for the nine new onsets.
