Why I love an underdog
Dr. John Gannage, MD, CFPC
I've always pulled for the underdog. I love a story where the unexpected happens; where David slays Goliath; the near-defeated rises up and seizes a victory; the little guy that "couldn't" or "can't"... DOES. Many of us take great interest in these stories..films are made, books are written about individuals who beat the odds. They are a source of great inspiration. But as health providers, when it comes to “patients” who beat the odds, do we study these cases enough?

  Increase accuracy, add iSpot Lyme

Lyme disease is difficult to diagnose. 50-70% of patients go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed due to low sensitivity of traditional antibody-based testing. iSpot Lyme™ is a new breakthrough cellular immune diagnostic tool that can detect the bacterial infection of Lyme disease with 84% sensitivity and 94% specificity.

Hyperthermia in alternative cancer treatments
Dr. Antonio Jimenez, M.D.
Hope4Cancer Institute

The term "hyperthermia" has developed many connotations over the centuries and is no wonder that people get confused about what it really means and what it can do to the human body. In modern days, we consider hyperthermia as the process of moderately raising the body's (or part of the body's) temperature to attain a scientifically established therapeutic effect, or at least one that can be rationalized. At the Hope4Cancer Institute in Baja California Mexico, we use advanced hyperthermia techniques to treat cancer, demonstrating results that are effective and synergistic to many of our other natural cancer therapies. It is therefore relevant to discuss the importance of hyperthermia in the realm of natural cancer treatments.

    Washington's GMO labeling initiative fires up global food industry
    Agribusiness and the food industry have pumped a record $17 million into Washington state so far to defeat Initiative 522. That's the ballot measure to require labeling of some foods and beverages with genetically engineered ingredients.

More than 100,000 people in the U.K. are affected by multiple sclerosis, with 2.5 million people, mostly young adults, affected worldwide. The cause of multiple sclerosis is yet unknown, but is thought to occur as a result of brain cells becoming damaged, with conducting fibers in the brain being attacked by the body's immune system.
