POSITIVE EFFECTS OF NFKB ON VARIOUS HEALTH PROBLEMS – (07-11-05)

Inhibition of NF-kappaB induces regression of cardiac hypertrophy

Now, while this is a rat study, the implications are pretty important.  Basically, by controlling inflammation by controlling the activity of NFKB actually reversed heart enlargement.  This has wonderful implications for those patients with congestive heart failure.  While the drug companies are desperately trying to come up with an effective drug to inhibit activity of NFKB, nature has already provided us with several, including hops and rosemary.

However, lifestyle changes to lower overall inflammatory burden and special attention to mitochondrial function would most likely help as well by removing the need for the activity of NFKB in the first place.

For more than a decade, Dr. Bogash has stayed current with the medical literature as it relates to physiology, disease prevention and disease management. He uses his knowledge to educate patients, the community and cyberspace on the best way to avoid and / or manage chronic diseases using lifestyle and targeted supplementation.
