Admiring God’s creation, King David wrote: “I will give thanks to you because I have been so amazingly and miraculously made. Your works are miraculous, and my soul is fully aware of this.”
But, imagine how much more excited and overwhelmed with admiration about God’s creation David would had been if he had access to the knowledge about the anatomy and physiology of human body available to us now. Read more
A fasting diet has the ability to regenerate the pancreas and may reverse damaged pancreatic beta cells in type 1 diabetes, researchers have found!
A US study, published in scientific journal Cell, tested a modified type of Fasting-Mimicking Diet (FMD) on both mice and human cells. It showed that the diet could regenerate pancreatic beta cells and restore insulin production in type 1 diabetes patients with the ability to reverse both type 1 and 2 diabetes. Dr Valter Longo from the University of Southern California, said the finding have a potential to cure for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes, unlike type 2, is an autoimmune condition for which no cure has been discovered by now. In patients with type 1 diabetes, immune system destroys pancreatic beta cells and as a result the pancreas stops producing insulin. Dr Longo also suggested that Fasting-Mimicking Diet can probably regenerate other organs. He said that FMD “can trigger self repair and regeneration processes”.

While it’s possible to get all of the vitamins and minerals from a carefully selected food and a nutrient-rich diet, research shows that many women still experience at least one type of nutrient deficiency, if not more. There are 13 vitamins important for women’s health—including Vitamin C, A, D, E, K and the B Vitamins (such as Thiamine and Vitamin B12), plus a number of important trace minerals and fatty acids. It’s believed that around 30 percent of all women are deficient in one or more of these vitamins and minerals, and for many women the risk only increases with age. Read more
