Could Heat Therapy Be an Effective Treatment for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Diseases?

This article looks at the benefits of sauna.  It is an intervention that is relatively widely available.  Most YMCA’s have them at the cost of a membership.  There are home saunas also.

Helminth Immunomodulation in Autoimmune Disease.

This study relates to my interest in ways to modulate an overactive immune system.  One radical way is to inoculate the patient with hookworm.  Because hookworm has learned how to evade the immune system and coexist with humans, the thought is that it can put the brakes on immune overreaction.  It doesn’t work reliably, unfortunately,…
