Old hands following me will know I see the future, clearly. I occasionally run a column I call “I told ‘Em!”, meaning I got there 10, 20, 30, years before everyone else. Here’s another example, concerning transient smartphone blindness (TSB), a new clinical phenomenon that will likely cause great confusion and neurologic misdiagnosis in orthodox practice. Published online January 18, 2017, in Neurology, the "Clinical/Scientific Notes" discuss a middle-aged woman who reported temporary, painless monocular (one-sided) visual loss after using a smartphone while lying on her side in bed. This follows two previous cases reported in 2016 by UK researchers in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) of women, aged 22 and 40 year ...[click to continue]
Have you ever wondered what would happen to our bodies if we didn’t have the ability to fight against disease? Well it’s no secret, the flesh would be gone from our bones in just 3 days! That’s why it’s so critical that you must do EVERYTHING in your power to safeguard and boost your immunity. In fact it’s the reason why I decided to interview my good friend immunologist AJ Lanigan… boost-your-immunity-interview-with-aj-v2 You might think to yourself, “Well I’m okay ...[click to continue]
The symptoms of autoimmune disease can be difficult to understand, diagnose, and treat.  Very often, these signs are brushed off as unimportant, diagnosed as something else, or treated incorrectly.  Meanwhile, autoimmune disease is becoming an epidemic. The American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA) states that 50 million Americans suffer from an autoimmune disease.  Researchers have identified more than 80 autoimmune diseases and dozens of additional conditions that have similar characteristics to autoimmune. [The National Institutes of Health (NIH) lists the number of patients with autoimmune at only 23.5 million because they include only 24 diseases that they’ve extensivel ...[click to continue]
A bit of alternative medicine news for you this week, folks. We just finished a POWERFUL 3-day workshop on micro-current therapy (MCT). It’s electroceuticals, which Scientific American magazine has described as “the medicine of the future” (well, I said it first, of course, about 18 years ago, in my book Virtual Medicine! Now republished as Medicine Beyond. MCT is the use of tiny currents to produce BIG change in the body. Here’s the class photo on the end of day 3. We ran the event at my Sanctuary home in Las Vegas! Vivien, bless her, was already in the UK, for her father’s funera ...[click to continue]
With the staggering statistics rocking the globe, you must learn how to fight diabetes naturally.  No matter your doctor’s recommendations, no matter the drugs you may be on to manage what has quickly become an epidemic, there are steps you can (and must) take to increase your chances of successfully regulating (and even reversing in many cases) diabetes. There was a time not so long ago that diabetes occurred most often in two specific instances.  Either children were born with the disease or the elderly developed it later in life.  Those with obesity (another fairly “new” epidemic to humankind) were also at risk. Most people didn’t know about typ ...[click to continue]
In my freebie download concerning osteoporosis I drew attention to the little-known requirement for boron. It’s very important for bone health and bone density. In fact it’s vital. But who takes boron supplements? Not many people, I’ll warrant! I first came across the story told by Rex Newnham, a naturopathic doctor and osteopath who, at that time, lived very near me in the north of England. In a few words, Newnham had developed arthritis and became interested in its physiology. A long path of enquiry led him to discover that arthritis was especially prevalent in areas where sugar cane is grown, such as Fiji and ...[click to continue]
In our modern world, many people lead sedentary lifestyles.  The shocking news is all that sitting is killing you.  Sometimes gradually, sometimes rapidly, staying parked in a chair (or on a couch) is sucking the life out of you one cell at a time. Even the World Health Organization (WHO) names sitting as the fourth most critical risk factor for serious disease and premature death around the globe. Such a large portion of jobs these days (and many of our hobbies) require prolonged periods of sitting.  Approximately 40% of American jobs are now in the office sector (more than ever and it’s going to grow).  Everything from working remotely to surfing social media to gaming ...[click to continue]
Most of us are familiar with the extraordinary book The Anatomy Of An Illness by Norman Cousins (1979). In it he describes the therapeutic benefits of laughter. Cousins had crippling arthritis and was told, pretty much, it was incurable. Well, it wasn’t! Norman Cousins checked out a whole bunch of old movies (Marx Brothers, Candid Camera Episodes, The Three Stooges, Laurel and Hardy, etc.) and laughed his head off for weeks and months. The result? His arthritis was cured. He later wrote about his success with this approach and recovery for the New England Journal of Medicine. Doctors studiously ignored his “unscientific” suggestion, of course. They put their faith—to  this day—in “treatments” that cure ...[click to continue]
Perhaps nothing is as elusive (or damaging) as aging foods.  Everything you do affects how quickly (or slowly) your body declines at the cellular level and food is at the top of the list. When you eat, a complicated series of chemical reactions takes place.  Foods are broken down and distributed where they’re needed.  Nutrients like fats, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals your body requires to function are immediately put to work. These are the foods that truly feed your system and keep it running efficiently. When you consume aging foods, the process is completely different.  This creates a chain reaction that involves your ...[click to continue]
Most of you know me. Yes, I’m fairly knowledgeable… but also I’m sometimes just plain contrarian! I don’t like doing what everybody else tells me to do. Perhaps you are the same. In one respect at least, the science world has come round to my way of thinking. I have always HATED to finish a course of antibiotics. It seems far more likely to disturb your bowel flora if you go on for several days longer than necessary. And that can be serious. A couple of years ago I took a “protective” course of broad-spectrum penicillin, during and after a significant dental procedure. This is a fairly standard thing to do. I made myself take the full course, even though customarily I do not. The result? I ended up limping badly with kn ...[click to continue]
If you aren’t currently working on preventing colorectal cancer from affecting your life or the life of someone you love, you could be in danger.  In the media, cancer coverage is almost exclusively confined to breast, lung, or prostate. Meanwhile, colorectal cancer (cancer of the rectum or colon regions) is cutting a wide swath of destruction through men and women all over the world.  No one talks about it and that’s a mistake because it’s claiming a lot more lives than you might imagine. Estimates for 2017 predict that more than 135,000 people will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer and more than 50,000 of them will die from the disease. We should definitely ...[click to continue]
One of the laughable aspects of modern so-called “science” is when some science-trained twit makes a pronouncement—which is nothing more than an opinion—and then this is passed off as actual science. Case in point: the place of oxytocin in interpersonal reactions. Who doesn’t know this is the “love hormone” or the “cuddle chemical”? Yet seriously ignorant Professor Mike Ludwig at Edinburgh University, UK, says it’s all “hype”.1 Professor or not, Ludwig seems not to have read about the actual functions of oxytocin. He’s fussing about the fact that no-one has replicated the 2005 study which showed that sniffing oxytocin spray increased generosity, cooperation and trust has never been replicated (only ...[click to continue]
