Alzheimer’s hits more than just the memory; patients experience immune system dysfunction as well

Posted on Jun 4, 2019 in Chronic Disease

Hear what Dr. Buttar and Robert Scott Bell have to say about this article on the January 7, 2019 Advanced Medicine Show (click link above to listen to the show) Researchers have discovered that there is a link between inflammation biomarkers in both plasma and cerebrospinal fluid and markers of Alzheimer’s disease-associated pathology. This means that the disease does not only affect memory, but the immune system of patients as well. The study was conducted by a group of researchers from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, together with the University of Wisconsin Alzheimer’s...

Could inflammation be the core cause of all chronic disease?

Posted on Apr 16, 2019 in Chronic Disease

Hear what Dr. Buttar and Robert Scott Bell have to say about this article on the December 10, 2018 Advanced Medicine Show (click link above to listen to the show)   A lot of blame is passed around when talking about illness. You’ve probably heard a lot of common beliefs about what causes disease – some true and some a bit misinformed. For example, it’s often said that eating too much sugar causes diabetes, spending too much time in the sun causes skin cancer, and eating fatty foods will give you heart disease. The human body is complex, and it makes sense that different diseases will...

Hear what Dr. Buttar and Robert Scott Bell have to say about this article on the November 19, 2018 Advanced Medicine Show (click link above to listen to the show) Clinical trials have shown an association between the autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and maternal immune activation (MIA), an active immune response after an infectious exposure during pregnancy, but this study is the first one to examine its link to an increase in behavioral abnormalities in children. The connection between ASD and MIA is still largely unknown but research suggests than an immune system-mediated subtype of ASD is...

Study links autistic children back to mothers who had chronic respiratory ailments, inflammation during pregnancy

Posted on Nov 23, 2018 in Autism

(Natural News) Clinical trials have shown an association between the autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and maternal immune activation (MIA), an active immune response after an infectious exposure during pregnancy, but this study is the first one to examine its link to an increase in behavioral abnormalities in children. The connection between ASD and MIA is still largely unknown but research suggests than an immune system-mediated subtype of ASD is triggered by changes in the cellular activity such as antibody levels in the mother and/or child. Animal models have revealed that MIA is a risk...

Inflammation drives progression of Alzheimer’s

Posted on May 23, 2018 in Chronic Disease, Medical Rewind

Hear what Dr. Buttar and Robert Scott Bell have to say about this article on the December 26, 2017  Advanced Medicine Show According to a study published in the journal Nature by scientists of the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the University of Bonn, inflammatory mechanisms caused by the brain’s immune system drive the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. These findings, which rely on a series of laboratory experiments, provide new insights into pathogenetic mechanisms that are believed to hold potential for tackling Alzheimer’s before symptoms...
