I came across upon some very interesting research regarding the vagus nerve and chronic viral infections.

Heal Thyself with Homemade Liposomal Vitamin C

“In fact even when there is not a single outward symptom of trouble, a person may be in a state of vitamin C deficiency more dangerous than scurvy itself.

And it is not one or two toxic chemicals. Take for instance carpet emissions, which emanate over 200 volatile organic ...

Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG is a probiotic unlike any other because it has little “hairs”(pili) that helps it stick to the inner lining of the digestive system. It also acts as the good guy which promotes the proliferation ...
