TAVNS in Mice with Ear Pod improves memory challenges

This is a bachelor’s degree project of a young scientist in Barcelona.  They study the value of TAVNS, transcutaneous auricular vagal nerve stimulation on memory retention in mice. I have been using TAVNS on certain patients in addition to acupuncture and monitoring their Heart Rate Variability. Some of my patients have electrodes that I made…

Bee venom acupuncture therapy ameliorates neuroinflammatory alterations in a pilocarpine-induced epilepticus model.

I’m drawn to these studies using Bee venom.  Somehow it makes sense to me that by using bee venom you enhance the effect of acupuncture by giving a toxin that we evolved with over the millenia.  There is anecdotal success using bee stings for autoimmune conditions, which, again, makes some sense to me, in that…

Needleless Transcutaneous Acupuncture Gives Good Results for Constipation in Animal Studies

A related article came up on my feed and I found this older article while researching.  Both Electroacupuncture and transcutaneous stimulation without needles improved transit times and parasympathetic activity.  I’m surprised at this, but, I suppose I shouldn’t be.  I’m surprised because I do think that acupuncture needle acupuncture is a more effective treatment than…

Deep Resilience: Immunology

This is an extremely rough draft Outline for Immunology chapter 6.26.2021 of this very special chapter.  I’m submitting it here so that I can move onto the next chapter on Inflammation.  It needs more tightening, but I think with a bit of distance I will have an easier time with it. It has been an…

Alzheimer Drug Aduhelm

The drug Aduhelm, recently approved to treat Alzheimer’s disease is controversial for good reason.  I’ve linked to several comprehensive articles below.  The controversy comes down to a a few points. Is is clinically effective?  It is hard to tell.  At one of the phases of the trial, the data didn’t look good. Then when the…

Aspirin Reduces by Nearly Half the Need For Mechanical Ventilation for COVID-19 Patients

This makes total sense since blood clotting is a huge problem in severe Covid 19 patients.  There is a risk of internal bleeding, but the risk/benefit ratio is quite low.   Patients hospitalized with COVID-19 and taking aspirin were nearly half as likely to require mechanical ventilation as those with COVID-19 not taking the drug,…

Amazingly, they may be able to look at brain activity in this highly specific way also.  Without the tremendous computing power of our computers, this would be impossible.     Graphene ‘camera’ captures real-time electrical activity of beating heart
