Vivien and I have been real fans of Jane Austen, since forever! Like most of the civilized world, we drooled over what I usually describe as “The Greatest Love Story Ever Told”. Can you guess? Why, the Colin Firth version of Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen, of course! Screenplay by Andrew Davies. And yes, I do rate it above Romeo and Juliet. Here’s the wonderful couple dressed for their part in that superb production; the script, the houses, the costumes and the scintillating dialogue between these two make it probably the best-ever adaptation of a book. And… the most amazing part of all… it was written long ago (1813) by a little, insignificant spinster-of-the-parish in a tiny unknown Engli ...[click to continue]
Have you heard of bergamot? Scientifically known as Citrus bergamia, the fruit resembles an orange and even has an orange-blossom scent in the wild. It gives Earl Grey tea its distinct aroma. The smell is so lovely that it is used as an essential oil to lower anxiety and sooth signs of depression common to seasonal affective disorder. Containing powerful antioxidants and with extensive antimicrobial properties, the total body wellness benefits of bergamot are going to blow you away!benefits-of-bergamet ...[click to continue]
Most of you know me by now: I’m always on the lookout for things unusual, healing and… well, remarkable! This story certainly comes under that description. It’s about using the techniques of Supernoetics™ to transform a particularly difficult problem that I have rarely seen tackled by fellow-doctors who write health manuals: stammering. We all saw the movie The King’s Speech, in which Colin Firth, who doesn’t stammer, had to play a man who DID stammer, but was trying very hard NOT to stammer! Quite rightly, Firth won an Oscar for this moving and incredibly skillful performance (there was a standing ovation at the end of the film when I saw it in a California movie house).

One of the biggest nerves found in your body is the sciatic nerve. It runs from your lower spine, to your feet, crossing over the buttock. It generates the feeling in your legs and provides both movement and strength. If you suffer from sciatic nerve pain (sciatica), you know there are few things as disruptive to your daily life. It sends shooting pain through your low back, down into your leg that can make it almost unbearable to sit or stand for any length of time. Experts estimate that 40% of adults will experience sciatica in their lifetime. The pain can range from mild discomfort to excruciating or sensation of burning or as if you have an electrical current “zapping” through your body. During an attack, it i ...[click to continue]
Mike Adams, the self-styled Health Ranger is way out of step with reality. He campaigns against ADHD and ADD, claiming such conditions don’t exist and are an “invented” diagnosis. That’s an insult to troubled parents. But it is also a serious slander against doctors like me who, for the past three or four decades, have been rescuing and helping kids with this wretched stage of toxic brain excitation and getting them well, or partially well. Mike has a very large following (millions), which means when he screws up, an awful lot of people are left confused and off-track. That’s what happens when you put politicizing and lobbying before clinical experience and scientifically-based knowledge (something Adams hates when mainstrea ...[click to continue]
When is the last time you had your blood glucose levels tested? 387 million people in the world currently suffer with diabetes. As many as 46% of them are unaware that they have the disease and are not in treatment. In developed nations, the statistics are out of control but the numbers are even higher in undeveloped regions of the world with lack of adequate healthcare and less access to information and tools to protect their health. Recent data estimates that there are also millions of adults (age 20 or older) with prediabetes (blood glucose is high but not quite high enough to be classified as diabetes). Diabetes is becoming a growi ...[click to continue]
It’s one of the biggest industries in the world! There is a never-ending stream of weight-loss books, magazine articles, diet aids, and propaganda on how to slim down. It’s not just a stream; it’s actually a tidal wave. I’ve seen just about every claim that has been made: eat more of X, eat less of X, eat more of Y, eat less of Y, any diet will make you gain weight, fat is beautiful anyway (it isn’t, it’s unhealthy), and so on. how-to-slim-downIt’s a jungle of predatory lions trying to get at your money. People with whacky opinions have found they can ma ...[click to continue]
The person you choose to go through life with is one that should not ever be taken lightly. Finding common ground regarding personal and professional goals, belief systems, and family is one that requires a partner, not simply a spouse. Working as a team is critical to true happiness. New research published in Psychology and Aging proves that healthy aging of your significant other can even affect how you age.

The population of adults 65 or older is more than 35 million in the United States.

Many factors influence your quality of life ...[click to continue]
I have to share with you a topic that is near and dear to my heart. It’s about the virtually unknown and hidden benefits of saturated fat. Doctors have it drummed into them that fats (in particular saturated fat) are bad for us. Whereas in fact certain fats are essential to survival and form part of our all-important cell membranes. Gosh, even our brains are forty percent fat; how would we even think without good clean fats? Just about every media outlet, doctor, university, and health “expert” jumped on board the “kill the fat” wagon…but it was premature! It also turns out that it was wrong. Saturated fat is not the enemy. In developed nations we eat ...[click to continue]
"A truth's initial commotion is directly proportional to how deeply the lie was believed. When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a lunatic." –Dresden James
This week sees the launch of my new book Medicine Beyond (at last!) It’s so shocking that my friend William Tiller wouldn’t do an endorsement! He’s still stuck in his comfortable physics, though he himself is known for being pretty radical. Bear in mind that Bill loved my 1999 book Virtual Medicine!

I’ve written at length about the importance of sleep to lower body wide inflammation, control weight, and keep your internal organs functioning into oldest age. New research has made the importance of sleep even clearer. Researchers at the University of California – Berkeley discovered that sleep deprivation may be one of the primary causes of Alzheimer’s Disease. Deep, quality sleep prevents the buildup of proteins called beta-amyloids, which have been identified as a toxic compound that raises the risk of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Around the world, more than 4 ...[click to continue]

Ironically, Hitler was about killed by his physician Theodor Morell and the meds he prescribed for him.

Nazism is in our midst folks, tread very carefully, you are headed for the concentration camps if you disobey. Desperate to protect every dollar of their evil profits, Big Pharma has organized a worldwide crackdown on online pharmacies. They call them “illegal”. Most are beyond USA law anyway, so they dragged in Interpol, which is supposed to be a police force catching serio ...[click to continue]
