MTHFR Mutations: A Hidden Culprit Behind Breast Cancer, Autoimmune Disease, and Other Conditions

When Alison Hawe took her 9-year-old son to his doctor several years ago, she followed the physician's advice by giving the boy folic acid to support his celiac disease diagnosis. Ms. Hawe did not initially realize the B vitamin could be triggering her son's erratic, hyperactive behavior. After investigating, she learned that some patients—especially those with certain genetic variations—react negatively to folic acid supplements and fortified foods. Her son's face was the first giveaway, with darting eye movements and difficulty focusing. He was also impulsive and unable to sit still. Ms. Hawe eliminated these potential triggers from her son's diet and supplements for several weeks, then slowly reintroduced them. She again observed pronounced changes in her son's behavior. Only when her son was in his late teenage years that he and his twin were both diagnosed with having an MTHFR gene mutation, Ms. Hawe told The Epoch Times. What Is MTHFR? Methylenetetrahydrofolat

Cut, Poison, Burn — Is Radiation Treatment on the Way Out?

Modern medicine’s go-to strategies for cancer treatment are archaic, based on the “cut, poison, burn” model — or surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. The idea of using toxic therapies to destroy tumors should represent a last resort, if used at all, not a first-line treatment. By their very nature, chemotherapy and radiation have devastating effects on the human body and the healing process, leaving providers to walk a fine line between issuing a dose strong enough to destroy the tumor without killing the patient. Often, basic supportive strategies designed to target cancer’s root causes — and boost the body’s capacity to heal — are ignored in favor of radiation and all of its significant side effects. “The conventional approach seems to follow the logic ‘destroy to heal,’ and I just don't know where that really occurs in nature outside conventional cancer treatment. Healing has to be your focus and goal to achieve healing. You have to heal to heal,” Dr. Nathan Goodyear explained i

Pillowcases Have Nearly 20,000 Times More Bacteria Than a Toilet Seat

Most people shower or wash their faces before going to bed, and some even change their pajamas on a daily basis. However, the cleanliness of bedsheets and pillowcases is often overlooked. However, studies have shown that after just one week of use, pillowcases harbor bacteria levels surpassing those found on a toilet seat by a staggering nearly 20,000 times. To mitigate potential health risks, experts strongly advise developing a habit of regularly changing bed linens. Approximately one-third of a person's lifetime is spent sleeping. Healthy adults require at least   seven hours of sleep   daily, while infants and adolescents need even more to support their growth and development. According to a survey conducted by the National Sleep Foundation ( pdf ),   73 percent of respondents reported that having comfortable bedsheets is important for getting a good night's sleep, and 68 percent stated that a clean bedroom contributes to better sleep. The survey indicated that clean beddin
