In Japan, soaking in natural hot springs is a treasured pastime that’s steeped in thousands of years of tradition, and during my stay there, I visited a few. The experience opened my eyes (and pores) to a world of good-feeling benefits, many of which (but not all) are backed by a plethora of research.
Confession: Before my recent visit to Japan, I never bathed. That’s because I shower. My Japanese friends, on the other hand, grew up viewing their daily bathtime and hot springs (generally referred to as onsen in Japanese) as mandatory, a time to relax and reflect. The rest of us also sort of instinctively feel that baths—and by extension, hot springs—can be good for the mind and body, but to what extent?
First, Hot Springs as Medicine Is Still An Area of Research
To the Japanese, hot springs are more than just a “hot tub”—they’re precious for relaxation, health, and more. Of course, it’s not just the Japanese. Hot springs, onsens, mineral baths, spa therapy—whatever you want to call them—have a rich history and are cherished in many parts of the world. More
Cancer patients are finally catching a break, as Australian researchers have tested a miracle drug that leads to big improvement in a majority of cases, and total recovery in some. The drug targets a specific protein that helps cancer cells survive. The Melbourne-based trial took place over four years and tested 116 patients. It was shown by researchers at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre that the drug Venetoclax can greatly reduce cancer blood cells.
Positive results were seen in 79 percent of cases involving patients suffering from chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Some patients who had previously undergone treatment were left as good as new after agreeing to the new pill trials. This is indeed historic news, as it marks the first trial of a medicine that is the result of three decades of research. “Here we are a bit under 30 years later in collaboration with WEHI and pharmaceutical companies here and in the US having proved that’s achievable,” head of haemotology, Professor John Seymour, told the Sydney Morning Herald.

On online dating sites, Matthew Sachs identifies himself as a 5-foot-8, 130-pound grad student who likes hiking, performance art and community service. He says he’s interested in meeting a broad range of guys, from jocks to geeks, and notes that — oh, by the way — he’s “On PrEP.” Those four letters stand for a daily medical regimen in which healthy individuals take a blue oval pill to lower their risk of becoming infected with HIV. The treatment, known as pre-exposure prophylaxis, has become so common in the Bay Area’s gay community that it’s frequently mentioned in social media profiles from Facebook to Scruff.
Since the first breakthrough research was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2010, the once-a-day dose of Truvada has consistently been shown to reduce the risk of HIV infection by as much as 90 percent. The results of the most recent study, which was published in September, were, even more, encouraging: Not one of the 600 people taking the drug became infected over two years. More
(NaturalNews) The controversy surrounding one of the world's most popular artificial sweeteners, aspartame (NutraSweet, Equal), continues some 30 years after the chemical was rammed through the regulatory process by pharmaceutical interests, despite its well-documented dangers. And yet to this very day, many people are still unaware of the chemical sweetener's sordid history, not to mention what aspartame is actually made from and how it affects the body and brain.
To many, aspartame is just another FDA-approved sugar alternative that has to be safe, otherwise it wouldn't be on the market. But the truth about aspartame is much more sinister, More

Most people join a gym to shed some pounds or pack on some muscle, both of which are noble goals. But what if we told you going to the gym doesn't have to be entirely about fitness?
There's way more to working out than a number on the scale. Here are a few reasons to hit the gym that have nothing to do with your body:
1. You'll find your sweat squad.2. The gym gives your brain a boost. 3. You'll have better intimate relationship. 4. Working out will spark some inspiration. 5. Going to the gym will jumpstart your morning. 6. You'll sleep better.
Little healthy eating habit changes that will quickly change for your waistline and burn fat.
Forget juicing or going vegan to drop weight.Simply eating a healthy diet was a new year’s resolution for more than a third of us, according to a recent survey.
And, naturally, many expect this to automatically lead to weight loss , which it can – especially if your diet was pretty bad to start with.
But what if you’ve chucked out the crisps and takeaways, cut your portions and are now filling up on nutrient-packed fruit and veg, lean meat and fish – yet STILL struggle to shift those pounds?
Well, there’s good news because there are some simple tweaks you can make to get them moving!
Surprisingly, not all exercises are good for you. In fact, recent studies have discovered that exercises once considered to be an effective way to trim belly fat, get lean & fit and look younger... have now been shown to cause middle-age belly fat, loss of lean toned muscle and inflammation that causes you to age faster.
Did you know that after the age of 35 your body hormonal changes and you start to gain weight easier… especially around your stomach area? Not only that, you also begin to lose lean muscle tone, making you weaker and flabbier?
And did you know that doing MORE only makes things worse? By that I mean exercising more than you are now and being even more strict with your diet… only adds to your frustrations!
The reason for all this can be blamed on your diminishing levels of youth-enhancing hormones… particularly growth hormones. And unfortunately it’s largely a natural process that occurs as you age.
A gradual and progressive hormonal decline that usually begins around middle age and continues insidiously for the rest of your life, which is why it’s sometimes referred to as the “middle-age spread”.
And some of the most annoying symptoms of the middle-age spread is an increase in belly fat and the loss of lean muscle tone that results in a dumpy, shapeless middle-age body. It’s no coincidence that most people over 40 stop wearing form fitting clothes.
And to top it off, it doesn’t help that life gets busier as you get older as well. Between family and work, most people don’t have time to do anything else, let alone take care of themselves. An over worked and over stressed life is another big culprit that adds even more pounds to your already compromised aging body.
Now you may not be able to stop aging …yet, but you CAN slow the aging process and actually REVERSE the effects of the middle-age spread. And I’m not talking about having to take anti-aging pills or hormone supplements. Nope. It’s much safer and more effective.
Research has discovered that your body has the ability to re-stimulate lagging youth-enhancing hormones naturally.
And it all begins with these 3 key principles you must apply in order to regain control of your body’s accelerated aging process and stop the middle-age spread dead in it’s tracks.
Now I need to warn you… what you’re about to read is probably going to go against all of the exercise and diet advice you’ve been told, but that’s because very few people actually know how to effectively re-activate hormones responsible for stopping and reversing the effects of the middle-age spread.
These next steps will reveal the 3 things you MUST AVOID if you want to burn off unwanted age-related stomach fat, regain lost muscle tone and get your lean, fit and youthful body back.
1. Cardio- Chronic cardio increases belly fat and speeds aging.
2. Sleep- Lack of sleep causes stubborn middle-age belly fat
3. Ab Exercises- Sit-ups and crunches DO NOT effectively reduce your belly fat.
As cases of the mosquito-borne Zika virus continue to spread across Central and South America, as well as in the Caribbean, health experts predict that it is just a matter of time before the disease spreads within the U.S.
In a study published in the journal The Lancet on Jan. 14, researchers who conducted a study on how the Zika virus from Brazil would spread internationally found a high likelihood of the virus being transmitted to the U.S. More
(WHO and BBC)
The Zika virus is likely to spread across nearly all of the Americas, the World Health Organization has warned.
The infection, which causes symptoms including mild fever, conjunctivitis and headache, has already been found in 21 countries in the Caribbean, North and South America.
It has been linked to thousands of babies being born with underdeveloped brains and some countries have advised women not to get pregnant.
No treatment or vaccine is available. More
