I sought care at NatureCures Clinic relating to an injured shoulder. Thanks to Dr. Eckel's perspective about food allergies, he rightly suspected systemic inflammation was part of the picture, and took me through an "elimination diet"...something that an MD would almost certainly never have done. I too never would have suspected that something I put in my mouth was making it impossible to raise my right arm without pain, but I'll be darned, if eliminating a common food item didn't immediately stop all shoulder pain. The success didn't stop there. (BTW, the dietary change was not hard, as plenty of grain options exist.) I used to get what I thought was a nasty cold that would hang on for several weeks every spring (achy, congested, fatigued). I swore it was a cold! Because I made this one simple dietary change/substitution, my cup no logner runneth over with inflation, so I don't get those symptoms any longer. I'm a big time fan now, and encourage others to talk with the Docs at NatureCures.

that's "inflammation" not inflation. ;)

Malignant mesothelioma affects the lining or membranes of certain large cavities in the body. These cavities, called the serous cavities, house certain major organs in the body including the heart, lungs, abdomen and others. The membranes that surround these cavities are called the serous membranes. They serve to protect these major organs from the friction and abrasion that occur as the organs move against each other during typical daily functioning, such as breathing and heart beating. The serous membranes derive from specialized cells called mesothelial cells. These cells form to create the mesothelium, which is the major tissue layer of the serous membranes. Cancer that occurs in the mesothelium tissue is called mesothelioma.


Mesothelioma is a rare & uncommon type of cancer which is almost always caused by exposure to asbestos. In mesothelioma, malignant type cells form and develop within the mesothelium. These cells also cover the outer surface of most internal organs. The tissue formed by these cells is called mesothelium. Mesothelioma is most common in the pleura which is the outer lining of the lungs, but it can also arise in the peritoneum or the pericardium which protects the heart.
