Results of a new trial suggest that certain probiotics can improve mental health, metabolic function, and disability among individuals with multiple sclerosis. This study is just one of several that has explored the impact of beneficial bacteria on the symptoms and progression of multiple sclerosis.

The bond between dogs and their human companions is special, which is something many dog parents already know. Now a new study provides some evidence of this unique bond, at least when it comes to whether dogs prefer people praise or food.

If you have diabetes, the glycemic index (GI) may not be as helpful as you think it is. That was the consensus of researchers at the Jean Mayer United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University.

Building strong bones is critical during adolescence and for avoiding osteoporosis and fractures in postmenopausal women. Now new studies from experts at Purdue University explain how corn can help build strong bones when used in the form of soluble corn fiber.

It’s no secret that ginger has been used for thousands of years as a natural remedy for various symptoms and health problems, and a growing amount of research is uncovering more reasons why ginger rocks. Here are some of those reasons, including the latest study on this natural remedy and inflammatory bowel disease.

The Food and Drug Administration has just approved extended release Sustol (granisetron) for treatment of chemotherapy-related nausea and vomiting, all-too-common side effects of this type of cancer treatment. Yet prescription antinausea drugs like Sustol themselves are associated with significant side effects, which causes some patients to seek natural alternatives to prevent chemotherapy-related nausea and vomiting.

The love hormone oxytocin has been so named because it has been linked to social bonding, motherly love, and increased empathy, but now there’s evidence it has even farther-reaching effects. Researchers have shown that oxytocin can enhance the sense of spirituality in men

Chronic pain, including chronic neuropathic pain, is poorly and often inadequately treated by conventional medicine. Yet for centuries, there has been a way to relieve chronic pain naturally with corydalis yanhusuo, a flowering herb that has been studied in recent years, including a new report.

In an earlier article, I talked about 4 health benefits of ginger, but the advantages of this spice don’t stop at four. So let’s look at 4 more health benefits of ginger, including a new study on its impact on weight loss.

Many people truly love their coffee, and some scientists are wondering whether that love affair could go so far as getting people to eat coffee grounds. Don’t worry; chances are you won’t even taste them, yet they could provide some important nutrients and perhaps help with various health issues.

Some people are skeptical about how much impact diet has on multiple sclerosis, yet at the same time there’s quite a bit of interest in the topic, especially since making dietary changes is a drug-free way to help manage the disease. Therefore it’s important to consider recently published research showing how a plant based diet benefits multiple sclerosis.

The good news is that the freshman 15, which refers to an average weight gain of 15 pounds among first year college students, is not entirely true. The less than good news is that college freshmen do tend to gain weight during their first year at university, and that could prove to be part of an unhealthy trend as these young adults get older.

Quiet and comfortable, room was clean, but was very disappointed that the hotel has no program for recycling. When I asked about it the front desk, the clerk was momentarily confused, then said the hotel did no recycling at all, not even in the offices.
