The gases and particles that the wildfires produce can be extremely irritating to the sensitive musosal lining of our lungs. (Other parts of the body like nasal passages, eyes, GI tract also have mucosal linings.) People...

Cytokines, protein pro-inflammatory mediators, serve as key danger signals that shift endothelial functions from the homeostatic into the defensive mode. The endgame of COVID-19 usually involves a cytokine storm, a phlogistic phenomenon fed by well-understood positive feedback loops that govern cytokine production and overwhelm counter-regulatory mechanisms. The concept of COVID-19 as an...

Umbrellux DAO2 Helps Clear Mosquito Bite Itching, Relieves Symptoms

Mosquitos love me. If you want to avoid getting bitten by a mosquito, just sit next to me at a barbecue:) Recently I made the discovery that Umbrellux DAO2, one of the key histamine clearing enzymes (Diamine Oxidase), helps clear the itching and resolves the puffy bumps from my mosquito bites much more quickly. Here’s what happened: I got bitten by mosquitos, started to itch and the swelling presented. After being quite uncomfortable for a day or so, I took an Umbrellux DAO2 supplement. By the next day, my reaction to the mosquito bites...
