Who is living the perfect life? Nobody, for sure. I’m not. But I’m working all the time on improving my life a lot and I think that’s something we should all be doing. It’s NEVER too late to learn how to better your life! I read a marvelous story of a guy who graduated Oxford University at the age of 91! Bertie Gladwin left school aged 14 with no interest in academia. He’d been put in the duffers class by teachers and promptly lost interest in schooling (what does that tell you about teachers, eh?) Today he has a total of three degrees and is even considering doing a PhD (what does that tell you about Bertie Gladwin?) I would argue he actually had far more ability than any of his teachers!1 If you didn’t know it already ...[click to continue]
Anyone who doesn’t refer to the obesity rates in the Western hemisphere as an epidemic has not been paying attention. As of 2012, more than two-thirds of American adults are considered overweight or obese. The dangers of obesity can no longer be ignored and they should not be molded into something they are not. It is listed as a “root cause” for most major illnesses and can also be a symptom.

Is Obesity Contagious?

You know my standing on the health of your gut microbiome. An unhealthy gastrointestinal system wreaks havoc on every other aspect of your health. Obesity may be one of many conditions that’s affected. Could microbes in your gut create contagious obesity? Scienc ...[click to continue]
I got an interesting piece in my inbox from MedScape this morning (Who Believes That Medical Error Is the Third Leading Cause of Hospital Deaths? May 26, 2016)… Readers may be aware of the absolute furor generated by a recent (2016) article in the British Medical Journal: Medical error-the third leading cause of death in the US.1 Using studies published since the 1999 IOM report, Makary and Daniel extrapolated annual inpatient death rates from those reports to the total number of US hospital admissions in 2013, publishing their findings in the British Medical Journal.1 They calculated that 251,454 inpatients (9.5%) die annually as a result of medical error. "If medical erro ...[click to continue]
(It's SAD for a reason...ha pun.) There’s nothing more frightening to so many of us as the threat of losing brain function. While I avoid dwelling on what “could happen” in regards to my cognition, I definitely examine the risk factors for Alzheimer’s and strongly guard against them. Currently, more than 46 million people have Alzheimer’s disease and the number is expected to hit 130 million over the next three decades. A person is diagnosed every 3 seconds! Chilling facts about this epidemic…

Last week I promised you more on the possibility of Alzheimer’s disease being caused by a microbial infection (“Can You Catch Dementia” 3 Jun 2016). Even so, I was surprised by the serendipity of reading an article on this exact topic in my New Scientist today (4 Jun 2016, vol 230 No 3076). In addition to the work of Ruth Itzhaki, professor emeritus of molecular neurobiology at Britain’s University of Manchester, I told you about last week, New Scientist was reporting work by Rudolph Tanzi of Harvard Medical School. He reinforces the strong likelihood that Alzheimer’s is, in fact, an infection caused by either Herpes Simplex or Ch ...[click to continue]
Gallstones are hard deposits that form in your gallbladder when there is an imbalance in the substances that form bile. Cholesterol, bile salts, and bilirubin (the waste material formed as your red blood cells break down) are the building blocks of bile. As the liver produces bile, it’s stored in this small organ. In the United States, more than 80% of gallstones are made of cholesterol while the remaining are a combination of calcium, bilirubin, and cholesterol. They can be as small as a grain of sand or as large as a golf ball. Approximately 20 million American adults currently have gallstones. There are changes you can make – specifically by following a gallstone diet – that can help you avoid future problems. Located just ...[click to continue]
Science says probably yes. We are beginning to understand that many chronic health problems are, in truth, caused by hidden infections. This renders some of the old “explanations” obsolete and defective. For example, it is now known that a great deal of arthritic trouble comes from bacterial infections in the troubled joints. It is NOT a wear-and-tear effect, as the scientific pseuds like to claim. They keep saying this often enough to have begun to believe their own baloney, without any evidence whatever. Look, people reach the age of 100 years or more without any measurable trace of arthritis or joint discomfort. Ye ...[click to continue]
When you suffer from chronic pain, it’s hard to focus on anything else. All the areas of your life feel the impact of pain that never ends. From your sleep to your ability to work to relationships with your loved ones…pain colors all of it with a broad brush. Chronic pain can be the result of trauma, disease, or have a completely unknown source. Experts estimate that approximately 100 million adults suffer from chronic pain in the United States alone. Half of them feel they have no control over their pain. Seeking natural pain relievers is critical – even if you’re currently under a doctor’s care. The hard truth is that pharmaceutical pain killers are highly addictive and their effectiveness gradually fade ...[click to continue]
(what are boppers?—OK I just brought it in to mean: people not as old as us boomers!) One of my favorite medical institutes in the world is the Karolinska in Stockholm, Sweden. Viv and I were there only last year! The reason they command a lot of my respect is they are paid by the Swedish government and not bankrolled by the disgusting pharmaceutical industry and its travesty of science and learning. Accordingly, I tend to trust reports from the Karolinska. karolinska-gate-importance-of-vitamin-b12 What they found also contradicts t ...[click to continue]
Those of you who have read my book Cancer Research Secrets will know I am a big supporter of beta-glucans. They are among the most powerful remedial medicines known. There was a time when one of the only reliable ways to heal disease and (in particular) cancer was from mushrooms - such as the fantastic Maitake (hen of the woods), Shiitake, Reishi and Turkey Tail. In fact, the Turkey Tail mushroom (Trametes versicolor, the very beautiful one) has given us one of the most powerful anti-cancer medicines we have: PSK (polysaccharide K, also known asKrestin).

Before I talk about the incredible health benefits of fasting, let me be clear. I’m not talking about starvation. I’m not talking about some sort of eating fad. This is not a “lose weight quick” strategy! Yes, you’ll likely drop a few pounds if you fast but that shouldn’t be the primary goal. You already fast a little bit every day. Your body isn’t consuming food during an average 6-8 hours of sleep per night but all the systems inside you have to keep going.

Your Body Works Hard…Around the Clock

Food eaten throughout the day is immediately converted to fuel and used to power all the functions inside you. Whatever isn’t used is converted to a compound called glycogen [a form of gluc ...[click to continue]
Lowering calories and feeling great never tasted so good! Last week saw the launch of my new line of Dr. Keith’s Own nutritional drinks. We went out with the chocolate (Yum!) But now we have brought on stream the vanilla (my favorite) and strawberry. These shakes are just about the tastiest and healthiest protein foods ever. A lot of thought went into the creation of these formulas. The idea was to get them the very BEST that’s available on the market. I think I’ve done it! Here’s the action in a few paragraphs:
  • Keith’s Shakes are made of all natural ingredients and no synthetic ingredients whatsoever. Dr. Keith’s Shakes have ZERO sugar and yet is naturally sweet.  Most shakes and proceeded foods have a ...[click to continue]
