Schizophrenic disorders are characterized by perceptual changes (hallucinations) and thought disorder (delusions). These are pellagra syndromes, including Huntington’s disease, some Parkinsonism patients, schizoaffective patients, and LSD induced psychosis. I consider these conditions variants of pellagra. Schizoaffective patients have mood swings, and during their manic states will also have schizophrenic symptoms. These pellagra variants are responsive to vitamin B3 when adequate doses are used. They will not respond to small doses or to other nutrients. They are B3 dependent conditions, and should not be considered as deficiency diseases.

For schizophrenics, the natural recovery rate is 50 percent. With orthomolecular medicine, the recovery rate is 90 percent. With drugs, it is 10 percent. If you use just drugs, you won’t get well.

Those who think they have no time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness.

Spending time outdoors can significantly lift your mood, and outdoors activities such as gardening and nature hikes have been found to be good therapy
Americans spend 80 to 99 percent of their lives indoors — a trend that has led to “nature deficit disorder,” a term used to describe a lifestyle deficit that contributes to poor psychological and physical health
Ecotherapy employs methods that cultivate the health benefits of being in nature. Research shows nature therapy lowers anxiety and depression, improves self-esteem, reduces blood pressure and more
Yoga has been shown to improve mental health, including depression, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, childhood trauma and sexual abuse
Yoga is uniquely suitable for treating trauma, as regulated breathing calms your parasympathetic nervous system, and the mindfulness required helps counteract dissociative effects of Trauma
In teenagers, yoga has been found to strengthen emotional resilience and ability to manage anger; in the elderly, it’s been shown to stave off cognitive decline to a greater degree than aerobic exercise
Pathetic censorship effort by The New York Times!
“Fat for Fuel,” released May 16, 2017, became an instant nationwide No. 1 best-seller, beating out the No. 2 best-selling book by a significant Margin
Despite outselling all other adult nonfiction in its first week, The New York Times didn’t even include “Fat for Fuel” in its top 15, saying the book was disqualified for excessive sales through Amazon“
Fat for Fuel” was reviewed and edited by more than two dozen health experts, scientists and researchers, making it one of the few peer-reviewed books on health on the market
While water fluoridation is purported to decrease your risk of dental cavities, fluoride needs to be applied topically for this to work. It doesn’t benefit your teeth when swallowed.
Swallowing fluoride displaces iodine from your thyroid, as iodine and fluoride are both halogens. Without iodine, you cannot make active thyroid hormones, raising your risk for Hypothyroidism.
Fluoride is a mitochondrial poison that sabotages your mitochondria’s ability to create cellular energy in the form of ATP, and an enzymatic reactor, meaning it reacts with enzymes in your body.

There are a plethora of reasons to avoid commercial deodorants. With aluminum, toxic chemical fragrances, and parabens; they are a perfect storm. On top of that, the underarms are a very sensitive area to apply toxins to with lymph nodes nearby.
In order to keep this area, and the rest of the body, free from such toxins, it’s a good idea to make your own deodorant. These won’t stop you from sweating, but they can aid in keeping odors to a minimum. This is especially true when the deodorant uses anti-bacterial ingredients such as virgin coconut oil.
Packing on the pounds isn’t just bad for your body—it’s bad for your brain. According to researchers at Carnegie Mellon University, the brains of obese people work harder than those of normal weight people to achieve the same results.
Researchers quizzed 29 people who were having fMRIs and noticed a trend: The connections between the brain parts responsible for memory and decision-making were hyperactive in overweight people, but functioned normally in average weight people, says study author Timothy Verstynen, Ph.D., a professor at Carnegie Mellon University.
“Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come
when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict
the art of healing to one class of Men and deny equal privileges to
others; the Constitution of the Republic should make a Special
privilege for medical freedoms as well as religious freedom.”

Re: Comments on the Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee
There is a distinct and growing lack of scientific consensus on making a single sodium consumption recommendation for all Americans, owing to a growing body of research suggesting that the low sodium intake levels recommended by the DGAC are actually associated with increased mortality for healthy individuals.
B. Saturated Fat
In the spirit of the 2015 DGAC’s commendable revision of previous DGAC recommendations to limit dietary cholesterol, the Academy suggests that HHS and USDA support a similar revision deemphasizing saturated fat as a nutrient of concern.
PANDAS represents a striking branch of medical research that has been gaining acceptance in recent years, though not without controversy. In a field known as immunopsychiatry, researchers are exploring the possibility that inflammation, or an overactive immune system, is linked to mental disorders that include depression, schizophrenia, and Alzheimers’ disease.
A host of recent genetic and epidemiological studies “have shown that when people are depressed or have psychotic episodes, inflammatory markers are found in their blood,” says Golam Khandaker, a senior clinical research associate at the University of Cambridge, in England, who studies inflammation and the brain.
In the case of PANDAS, when the body reacts to strep infection, parts of the brain that help regulate motion and behavior wind up caught in the crossfire, mistaken for bacterial invaders by cells bent on destroying them. Eliminate the inflammation, some doctors say, and you signal the immune system to stand down, restoring normal brain function

Searching for the recipe for a good night’s sleep? It could be as simple as a glass of milk and a few handfuls of nuts.
Scientists in the US studied the diets and sleep patterns of more than 4,500 adults and concluded that certain minerals and acids are linked to a sound slumber.
And their report suggests that a late-night snack of Brazil nuts – which are packed with selenium and potassium – washed down with a calcium-rich glass of milk contains all the ingredients you need for a satisfying sleep.
Lead author Dr Michael Grandner of Pennsylvania University, said: ‘These findings suggest potentially natural and common-sense solutions to sleep problems.
‘Although there is still important work that needs to be done on cause-and-effect, there is a lot of research showing that non-medication approaches can be very helpful.
‘Even sleep disorders such as sleep apnea and insomnia can be very effectively treated.
‘The importance of diet is often overlooked when dealing with these sorts of problems.
‘Diet, sleep, physical activity, and other parts of a healthy lifestyle have an impact on many systems in the body and, ultimately, play a role in how we think, feel, and act.’
Researchers quizzed 4,548 adults on their health, diet, lifestyle and sleep.
