Learning more about Covid -19

Everyday it seems we learn more and become more confused as to what the Covid-19 is. Apparently, it can attack any part of the body. Today a story of someone who had the gastrointestinal symptoms and then all of a sudden, a fever of 105 and oxygen levels dropping dangerously low to the point that intubation was required.

A number of studies indicate that melatonin may be useful for preventing and mitigating infection by the novel coronavirus that is currently terrorizing the world. The reason for this is melatonin indirectly regulates ACE2 receptors, which are the same receptors that the virus uses to get into the host cell.

Muscle Mass, Body Fat and Breast Cancer Survival

Thoughts on a recent observational study performed by Kaiser Permanente and Dana Farber on Breast Cancer Survival.

The three-phased approach to complementary cancer care

My three-phased approach to a healthy garden (also a great way to understand complementary cancer care). Phase 1 - Identify factors that allowed cancer to grow in the first place.
