Eating at abnormal hours can be damaging to your skin….

By Denise Clark, ND

As the days get longer and we experience more sunny days its time to protect our skin from the damaging effects of intense sun exposure in Colorado. A recently published study found that our eating habits could affect aging and the prevention of skin cancer.

A study in mice from the O'Donnell Brain Institute and UC Irvine shows that eating at abnormal times disrupts the biological clock of the skin, including the daytime potency of an enzyme that protects against the sun's harmful ultraviolet radiation.

Mast Cell Activation Syndrome

By Denise Clark, ND

Chronic health conditions can be complicated by many factors, including, lifestyle, diet, multiple infections, and immune dysfunction.  One area that can be overlooked in some highly sensitive individuals is Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS). Traditionally, MCAS was considered a rare disease generally focusing on the mast cell mediators tryptase and histamine and the blatant symptoms of flushing and anaphylaxis.  New research indicates that it play a large role in many chronic health conditions.

Intravenous vitamin C lowers tumor markers

In a recent study on intravenous vitamin C for cancer levels of tumour markers and proinflammatory cytokines decreased. This indicated treatment effectiveness.

Cadmium May Cause Chronic Kidney Disease

By Stephen W. Parcell, ND

In this study they found that Environmental low level of Pb, Hg, Cd exposure in the general population was not strongly associated with CKD. However, Cd exposure was associated with CKD, especially in adults with hypertension or diabetes. This finding suggests that environmental low Cd exposure may be a contributor to the risk of CKD in adults with hypertension or diabetes.

Lower level of vitamin D are associated with death from all causes.

By Stephen W. Parcell, ND

According to a recent study on Japanese individuals lower serum 1,25(OH)2D levels are a potential risk factor for all-cause death, especially cardiovascular and respiratory infection death, in the general Japanese population, and that lower serum 1,25(OH)2D levels greatly increase the risk of respiratory infection death in subjects with kidney dysfunction. Other studies on different population all indicate the same thing.
