BRIGHT FOLIAGE, AUTUMN HARVEST, AND COZY FIRES
Autumn has always been my very favorite time of the year. That first nip in the air, the smell of roasting chilies almost everywhere you go, the bountiful harvest of cool weather crops, the smell of burning pinion and cedar and the spectacular oranges, browns and golds of the fading cottonwood trees make one pause to take in all of its glory. Yes, the days are getting shorter, but fear not, our easily available vitamin D3, is just a reach away at your favorite store and it is your main hedge against a multitude of winter's ailments from depression to the flu. If you're either curious or concerned about a health issue, ask you primary care provider to test your level. Primary care docs like to use the D2 form, but why take something that needs to be converted to the more bio available form when the preferred product is so handy. If your doc insists you get a vitamin D2 prescription, tell him or her that you won't need any refills because you plan to buy it over the counter and start taking it every day. READ MORE

NAFLD is probably the most common liver disorder in the world with a prevalence rate ranging from 6% to 35% of the general population, and a median rate of 20%. There is strong evidence that the occurrence of NAFLD is likely to correspond to regional trends in over nutrition, obesity, type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome.The disorder equally affects both sexes. Although, it is most common in overweight and obese persons and in patients with adult onset (type 2) diabetes, it can also be present in lean persons and in overweight children and adolescents.
NAFLD represents a spectrum of hepatic disorders characterized by macrovesicular fatty liver, with histology ranging from steatosis to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), to NAFLD-associated cirrhosis and to hepatic cancer. It is the risk of progression from fatty liver as a benign disorder to liver disease with inflammation, fibrogenesis and cell death that makes NAFLD a medical challenge, as an established therapy is not yet available.A decade of clinical trials did not reveal a single intervention that has convincingly improved all important outcomes for all NAFLD patients. Low-calorie diet and physical exercise are accepted as a basic universal approach, but considering the rate at which NAFLD is becoming a worldwide epidemic, new therapeutic concepts are needed.
