Vitamin D plays a vital role in boosting the immune system and helping your body absorb dietary calcium, a mineral needed by your bones, teeth and other tissues. Its deficiency may leave you more susceptible to muscle spasms, joint pain, frequent bone fractures, hair loss, and delayed wound healing, recurring respiratory infections due to impaired immunity.
If you have a eating disorder, chances are you will hate food. These feelings of disgust or fear are caused by bacteria rather than any other psychological factor. To fight the bacteria, the immune system triggers antibodies, which attack, by mistake, the brain's limbic system that controls such emotions. Changing this specific gut bacteria might cure diseases like IBS and CFS.
Practise oil pulling to induce saliva production. Supplement with vits D, K2, and C. Utilize tooth soaps or homemade toothpastes. Consume traditional fermented foods (high in natural probiotics), sea salt (rich in minerals), and homemade bone broths (rich in calcium). Eat strawberries to whiten teeth and remove tartar. Apply pearl powder on affected teeth daily, once a day.
Alzheimer's has been associated with the formation of destructive beta amyloid protein plaques and clumps in the brain. Curcumin inhibits the formation of such plaques and clumps, and may even help break them up. Ashwagandha boosts a protein in the liver, which enters the blood stream and helps clear amyloid from the brain. It is known to reverse memory loss and improve cognitive abilities.
