Methylfolate Makes Me Crazy
April 10, 2016
We've talked about the MTHFR mutant problem before (right here) but haven't really addressed the actual taking of methylfolate. We mutants are out there, walking among you unable to convert regular old folic acid into methylfolate.
I will stand with pride among you my brothers and sisters because yes, I too am a mutant. Deep shuddering sigh. As it turns out, using gene markers alone to plan a healthy nutritional protocol is not as straightforward as it would seem. The reason being that every system in the human body has a glorious level of redundancy - we are literally designed to fail in eight hundred ways and still function normally. Simply having the MTHFR mutation doesn't actually mean that high-dose methylfolate like Deplin® which is prescribed in either 7.5 mg or 15 mg doses is a good idea.

What on Earth is a Himalayan salt lamp? Himalayan sea salt is believed to be composed of dried remnants of the original, primal sea dating back to planet Earth's creation.

7 Natural Solutions for Healing a Heel Spur
September 9, 2016
A heel spur often goes unnoticed or misdiagnosed. What is a heel spur, and how do you heal one? Here are seven natural solutions to heal a heel spur.
A heel spur is caused by the displacement of calcium on the bone that forms on the underside of the heel; it may be one small bony protrusion or a collection of tiny, irregularly shaped growths on the bone of the heel, which is called the calcaneum . Heel spurs are sometimes painful - described as a knife digging into the heel - and other times, a heel spur goes unnoticed and is only detected by an X-ray. Because knowledge about the symptoms of heel spurs is somewhat limited, it's common that it's mistakenly assumed to be plantar fasciitis . A heel spur is simply the presence of an extra protrusion on the bony surface of the heel, while plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of the plantar fascia - a thick connective tissue band that extends from the heel bone to the heads of the metatarsal bones, which are five long bones in the foot located between the heel and the toes. This connective tissue forms a tie that supports the arch on the bottom of your foot. Strain on the plantar fascia leads to irritation, swelling and then a weakness of the arch - this creates pain at the back of the heel. On the other hand, a heel spur is only observable by an X-ray and is painful when inflammation develops in the tissues surrounding it.
