CHAMPIONSGATE, Fla., July 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Research published this week in the peer-reviewed Journal of Occupational Medicine and Toxicology (JOMT) shows that the safety thresholds for mercury exposure can be exceeded during dental procedures involving drilling on amalgam fillings if special precautions are not in place, according to the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT).  (Interview…

A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study of Classical Homeopathy in Generalized Anxiety Disorder

Abstract BACKGROUND: Homeopathy is commonly used for the treatment of medical and psychological conditions. Such prevalent use, however, is not supported by robust, methodologically sound research. This study evaluates the effect of homeopathic treatment in generalized anxiety disorder, a prevalent mental disorder characterized by an enduring pattern of excessive apprehension and distress and by mental…

Homeopathy for Anxiety and Anxiety Disorders: A Systematic Review of The Research

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To conduct a systematic review of the clinical research evidence on homeopathy in the treatment of anxiety and anxiety disorders. METHODS: A comprehensive search of major biomedical databases: MEDLINE, EMBASE, ClNAHL, PsycINFO, Cochrane Library; and of specialist complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) databases: AMED, CISCOM and Hom-Inform was conducted. Efforts were made to…

Ginkgo biloba extract improves working memory performance in middle-aged women: role of asymmetry of prefrontal cortex activity during a working memory task.

The results indicate the prefrontal cortex (PFC) plays a role in the physiological cognitive function-enhancing effect of Extraxt of Ginkgo biloba (EGb). EGb might improve working memory function in middle-aged individuals by counteracting the occurrence of aging-related hemispheric asymmetry reduction.

Cell sensitivity, non-linearity and inverse effects

Highlights The opinion that the homeopathic principles conflict with scientific laws could be revised. Cell and molecular mechanisms underlying the inversion of drug effects are discussed. Several models have been suggested in the framework of hormesis and paradoxical pharmacology. Low doses or high dilutions of drugs interact with enhanced sensitivities of regulatory systems. A new…

Mother, Teacher Describes Daughter's Aspartame Symptoms And Recovery

Objective science proves aspartame consumption is not safe. Subjective “science” proves that aspartame consumption is safe. If symptoms develop after one begins consuming products containing aspartame-and reverse only after aspartame consumption has been discontinued-then what more proof does one need to determine whether or not aspartame is safe to consume?   By Barbara Metzler After…

Report On Aspartame And Children

Aspartame is a multipotential toxin and carcinogen. The dipeptide component of the molecule can alter brain chemistry, significantly changing the ratio of catecholamines to indolamines, with resultant lowering of seizure threshold, production of carbohydrate craving and in vulnerable individuals leading to panic, depressive and cognitive symptoms.
