Many of you will be familiar with the name of Hans Selye. If you’ve bought and read my Diet Wise, you’ll certainly know of him (chapter 7). If you’ve never heard of him, Selye was an Austrian physician who ended up finally residing in Montreal, Canada, working at McGill University and ultimately Montreal University. He is famous for a theory about stress related illness called The General Adaptation Syndrome. But what got Selye started, he tells us in his classic book The Stress Of Life (first published in 1956), is observing sick people while he was a medical student. He noticed that whatever the disease, patients all had the same symptoms: not THE symptoms, that defined the specific illness, ...[click to continue]
An allergic reaction is what your immune system causes when confronted with something to which it has developed a sensitivity. Allergies can come in many different forms.

Most Common Allergens

  • Foods
  • Dust
  • Insects
  • Animal dander
  • Plants and mold
  • Latex
  • Prescription or over-the-counter drugs
The front-runner for most allergic reactions is food…and more than 50 million Americans have been diagnosed with a mild to severe allergy to a specific food. That doesn’t count all the people who have undiagnosed allergies – who don’t even know they ar ...[click to continue]
At last, the dinosaurs prove my story and, unwittingly perhaps, validate the hidden allergy hypothesis. I can sum this up in a few words: if you eat a food regularly, your body will adapt to it. Any intolerance reaction will go “underground”. But the liability is that it can get you down later, if you reach overload status, or if your tolerance drops (stress, viral attack, lack of sleep, parasites, any one of dozens of overload factors). This is the whole basis of what we call a “hidden allergy” to food, or a “masked allergy”. As I said in my book Diet Wise, I rate this as one of ...[click to continue]
We are flooded with inflammation causing stress on a daily basis. This is proven by the worldwide level of inflammation-based illnesses such as heart disease, cancer, obesity, and diabetes. Add in poor lifestyle habits and it’s a combination that gradually leaves your body ravaged and unable to fight the simplest cold. I talk about many ways to lower your stress but this time, I want to discuss cutting-edge science to enhance brain function and lower stress.

The general term “arthritis” is a label given to more than 100 conditions that tend to worsen over time. The two primary forms are rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and osteoarthritis (OA). You have joints from your head to your toes and arthritis can affect one area or several.

Facts about Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that affects 1.3 million people in the United States. Doctors do not know what causes it but triggers can be genetics, living conditions, lifestyle, a cold or flu, or an infection. Your immune system mistakes healthy tissue for foreign “invaders,” turns on your body, and attacks it. If you have it in one wrist, hand, knee, or foot, the body ...[click to continue]
I remember a story from school days, about three inns in the same valley, called The Traveller’s Head, The Traveller’s Arms and The Traveller’s Rest. You can probably guess what happened to strangers who came to the valley and needed a night’s lodging! That tale came to mind when I read a recent article in New Scientist magazine. Believe it or not, transplanting a human head is being seriously discussed. One surgeon claims he will be able to do it within 2 years.1 It raises so many questions. The first one to pop into my mind was: “Would it really be a head transplant? Isn’t it really a body transplant?” We think of head transplant because i ...[click to continue]
Caring can come in many forms. For me, it comes in the form of sharing with my readers what I’ve learned not only as a doctor but also as an inhabitant of the universe.

Simple healing touch therapy is the unequalled king of all communications! When you touch someone or something, you have a direct physical connection between yourself and the person or thing—impossible with written words, images or video. What’s more, it’s fast—you can transfer a lot of information in just a few seconds, which you can’t by talking about yourself or your feelings! For all our reticence about touching, especially with strangers, touch can enable us to communicate our feelings with an astonishing accuracy. Whereas visually the only really reliable emotion that can be identified is joy or delight, participants in a 2009 scientific trial run by psychologist Matthew Hertenstein of DePauw University were able to co ...[click to continue]

It messes up your moments, your days, your years, ...[click to continue]
There are tens if not hundreds of thousands of papers like this one below, attesting to the value of this and that of nutrient supplement. Yet still the medical profession cries that nutrients don’t do anything, they are a waste of time, a fraud even. Professional liar Paul Offit MD, in his book Do You Believe in Magic? Vitamins, Supplements, and All Things Natural: A Look Behind the Curtain claims that even though some popular therapies are remarkably helpful due to the placebo response, many of them are ineffective, expensive, and even deadly. What a con artist. Officially, not one single instance of a death due to a vitamin supplement took place last reported year. The latest (2013) from the American Association of Poiso ...[click to continue]
I talk to you about your gut health because it is so much more important than many realize.

Your Body’s Second Brain

In fact, the gut is considered a third branch of your central nervous system made up of more than 100 million nerves working together to communicate through the nerve pathways to the rest of your body. The enteric nervous system (ENS) is referred to by experts as your body’s “second brain.” Your gut health influences every aspect of your health. A recent review released by the University of California confirmed that the gut and brain share a “complex bidirectional communication system that not only ensures the proper maintenance of digestion but is likely to have multiple effects on affect, motivation, ...[click to continue]
Doesn’t everyone know the dangers of high fructose corn syrup to your health? Well, the food industry says it isn’t (yeah, right). The FDA (who are notoriously corrupt) hasn’t noticed anything! And the average doctor around the world (who hasn’t even tumbled that sugar is bad for health!)… When was the last time your doctor asked you about what you ate and drank before prescribing? They never ask because they know NOTHING about the effects of corrupted, processed food. Or at least they do: it’s 90% of their medical practice; but they are simply not joining up the dots. ...[click to continue]
