(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]
Your body needs amino acids (that you receive in food) to manufacture critical proteins. Recent reports link risk factors of memory loss to not getting enough of these necessary building blocks. What does protein do for you?
  • Repairs damaged tissue and produces new cells
  • Boosts lasting energy stores
  • Controls weight and regulates appetite
  • Maintains blood sugar levels
  • Stimulates metabolism
  • Protects growth and development in young people
  • Regulates mood
  • Builds blood, muscle mass, bones, and cartilage
  • Aides in digestion
  • Improves skin, nail, and hair health
  • Balances hormones, enzymes, and ...[click to continue]
My name has been associated with the best-researched data in holistic medicine for over 40 years. I am proud to have been at the leading edge. In all that time, I have resisted the urge to produce my own products for consumption, being satisfied merely to point my readers in the direction of good stuff! But there are certain gaps in the market where I feel there could be great things to offer. Since I am among the most knowledgeable MDs around, I finally made the fateful decision that I would manufacture and supply them. I’m avoiding really obvious supplements, such as vitamins and minerals. You can find these anywhere and everywhere. For years I've recommended products by friends and I shall go on doing so. No, my idea was to ...[click to continue]

What Makes You Drunk But Isn't Alcohol?

Alcohol and drug abuse can lead to depression and the reverse is also true. General thought impairment can make it difficult to pinpoint which happens first – the substance abuse or the depression. Removing drugs and alcohol from your life will enable you to think clearly and assess your personal situation without distraction. I’m currently writing a massive “holistic mental health” encyclopedia that has EVERYTHING to do with mental health and brain function. There is something in this book for everybody, from grumpiness, fatigue, tension and anxiety, to violence, depression, dementia and schizophrenia! ADD/ADHD and autism included! You’ll see it later in May. Mea ...[click to continue]
Type 2 diabetes is destroying the health of millions. Unlike type 1 diabetes (which represents less than 10% of all diagnosed cases), type 2 is preventable with the right mix of diet and lifestyle. What many patients might not know that it’s also reversible! That’s right. You can control type 2 diabetes to the point that you can reverse it. This is a proven fact. Dr. Michelle Magee, director of Washington’s MedStar Diabetes Institute explains, “We have seen numerous people reverse their condition. It takes a real dedication for the rest of their lives.” It’s also a fact that even if you haven’t been diagnosed, you can still have glucose blood levels high enough to cause damage to ...[click to continue]
We have thousands, or even millions, of body clocks. Learning to control them, it is said, will solve problems from jet lag to weight loss. We now have a field called chronobiology (time and biology) and a spin off called “chrononutrition” (timed eating as a means of controlling appetite and weight loss). More on that later. Not so long ago we thought that the body clock was a one-off control mechanism, housed somewhere in the brain. No longer. We now know our bodies contain thousands, if not millions, of independent clocks that subtly control the functioning of our tissues and organs from the brain and heart to the lungs and liver. ...[click to continue]
Researchers with the University of Waterloo seem to have found the physiological keys to wisdom! It’s something I talk about in my work but it’s always nice to have the “conventional” guys work on some of the same things about which I’m passionate. The beat of your heart seems to be linked to how reasonable and wise you are overall. Your heart and your brain work together to consider complex issues! Published in the Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience journal, the Waterloo team wanted to determine when and how psychophysiology determines judgment. Professor Igor Grossman explained, “Our research shows that wise reasoning is not exclusively a function of the mind and cognitive ability. We found that people who ...[click to continue]
I am grateful to my friend and correspondent Grant, from Brooklyn, for calling my attention to this article from the UK’s Daily Telegraph. I don’t read British newspapers, since they stopped featuring me years ago… (It’s just a joke, get it? I’m not that vain… no, really…!) At last some scientists are waking up to the fact that cancer is a disease, not an alien blob dropped into the body from a flying saucer. I’ve been scoffing at this approach for years, as you know. If it’s a disease, the body will fight it. The body needs help. Moreover, a cancer IS the body—it’s the person’s own tissues gone bad. We have to heal those tissues and re-harmonize them with the parent body. The dumbest way to get tissue ...[click to continue]
Diet is the root of everything (good and bad) for your physical body. If you feed your body nutritious food, most of the time, you’re going to get a body that works efficiently and for a long time. Those are the scientifically proven odds. You might think to yourself, “Lots of people take care of themselves and eat right all their lives and still end up dying of cancer or heart disease.” That’s true. There are those who seem to do everything right and still get sick or die from diseases they worked to prevent. However, they’re not the majority. Those are the publicized cases which represent a very small portion of cancer patients. Medical and scientific experts (conventional and alternative) ha ...[click to continue]
