    Adrenaline Suppresses The Immune System And Promotes Viral Infections

    The timing of this study just could not have been better considering the current coronavirus epidemic. The study below demonstrates that both adrenaline and noradrenaline suppressed the immune system and both increases vulnerability to viral infection as well as increasing mortality after the...

    Glucose Is Anabolic For Thymus, Opposes Catabolic Effects Of Cortisol

    As most of my readers know, cortisol is a highly catabolic steroid and one of the main agents (estrogen being another) responsible for thymus atrophy with age. These catabolic effects of cortisol can be blocked by progesterone, DHEA, pregnenolone, and even DHT (but not by testosterone). The...

    PUFA Are Immunosuppressive, Fasting And Protein Restriction (possibly) Even More So

    Several great studies, which quickly illustrate the connection between PUFA, immune system, estrogen, cortisol, cancer and the protective role vitamin A/E play as well as their likely mechanism(s) of action. As I mentioned on one of the first podcasts with Danny Roddy, the role of PUFA as...

    Aspirin May Treat Tuberculosis By Improving / Restoring Innate Immunity

    Yet another trick that old dog aspirin knows. While it may not actually be potent enough to cure the infection by itself (as the study shows) it potently reduces the infectious burden, which may allow patients to resume normal living habits and survive as if they did not have an infection at...

    Pregnenolone Is A Potent (functional) Endotoxin (TLR4) Antagonist

    It seems that pregnenolone is finally starting to look exciting to the medical industry. In addition for its intensive studies for a variety of mental issues, now studies are coming out demonstrating its endotoxin (LPS) antagonism effects. As most forum users know, endotoxin exerts its effects...

    Cortisol Therapy Makes Cancer Resistant To Treatment

    As many forum users probably know, glucocorticoid treatment is one of the main lines of therapies in cancer. It is considered highly beneficial due to reducing inflammation and swelling/pain in inflamed/cancerous tissue. However, recent studies have shown that immune dysfunction is perhaps the...

    Aspirin May Help Treat Melanoma

    A few months ago, a study made the rounds on social media and even this forum, claiming that aspirin actually increased risk of melanoma. Peat published a separate newsletter just to address that study. And now, this study below shows that aspirin actually may help treat Stage 2 and 3 melanomas...

    Cancer Transmitted By Organ Transplant, Curable If Immune System Is Intact

    This is a fascinating study that shows organ donation from a person with undiagnosed breast cancer resulted in cancer developing in the organ recipients. This suggests that even in the case of localized tumors, the rest of the body is already in "cancer mode" and seemingly healthy...

    Stress As The Underlying Cause Behind ALL Chronic Diseases

    One of the more controversial of Ray's statements is that chronic stress is the underlying cause of many/most chronic conditions, especially autoimmune ones. In several of his articles he describes the role tissue damage under the influence of cortisol and estrogen play in creating an immune...

    Morphostasis Theory Of Immunity Confirmed - Body Treats Heart Attack Like Viral Infection

    Peat has touched upon his views of the immune system in several articles, mostly related to autoimmune disease. In his view, the role of the immune system is not so much to "attack" foreign pathogens that threaten the organism, but is more akin to sanitation workers who clean up trash and other...

    Simple Body Stretching Reduces Tumor Size By More Than 50%

    As many of you know, stretching is known to increase ATP levels in muscle. The effects is the reverse of the one caused by contracting, which breaks down ATP. User @Such_Saturation posted a study about that and Peat has mentioned it many times as well. Stretch Creates ATP In the Cardenosine...

    It's Official - Cancer Surgery Drives Metastasis, Aspirin Can Prevent Them

    The appearance of metastases has long been considered one of the most mysterious and important aspects of cancer due to the fact that metastases can occur even in organisms where the primary tumor has been completely removed and the rest of the organism has been completely isolated form the...

    Vitamin E Deficiency Increases Risk Of Tuberculosis (TB) Infection

    Most people in modern societies probably do not have much to fear when it comes to TB, as that disease is very rare in the Western world. The reason I am posting this study below is that it demonstrates once again the role of vitamin E in maintaining a healthy immune system. The benefits of...

    Immune Decline (Not Genetics) Causes Cancer And It Can Be Easily Fixed

    As most of the forum users know, the genetic dogma reigns supreme in the oncology field. Despite many recent studies showing cancer rates in young people are increasing and that increase cannot be explained by genetics, the mainstream view is still very much along the lines of "bad" mutated...

    Stress From Cancer Diagnosis Suppresses Immune System And Worsens Outcome

    A recent study posted on the forum found that more than 20% of newly diagnosed cancer patients experience PTSD as a result of the stress associated with the diagnosis. The fact that PTSD is still largely considered a genetically-driven disease has somehow managed to escape question about this...

    DMSO Precursor Completely Cures Terminal Cancers

    I hope this post is not taken as somehow trying to promote the use of DMSO. I am simply pointing out the connection between the two since the actual compound used (Dimethylsulfoniopropionates - DMSP used int he study is rapidly metabolized in vivo into a number of chemicals, but mostly DMSO...
