George Barnard Shaw wrote, in the preface to his stage play The Doctor’s Dilemma: “That any sane nation, having observed that you could provide for the supply of bread by giving bakers a pecuniary interest in baking for you, should go on to give a surgeon a pecuniary interest in cutting off your leg, is enough to make one despair of political humanity. But that is precisely what we have done.”This wry observation is as true now as it was when made. Indeed, being cynical, the medical profession in the USA and elsewhere is driven totally by what makes money, not what makes sense. But what about giving doctors a pecuniary interest in putting you down? Voluntary euthana ...[click to continue]
I talk about the importance of sleep all the time because it the easiest, cheapest method to extend your life, slow aging, and maintain your overall health. Getting good sleep is crucial to a longer, stronger life.

Your Morning Routine…Snoozed

Knowing how to wake up in the morning is the key to your entire day! In fact, that “snooze button” problem could be tanking your productivity and energy levels. In the United States, about one-third of the population hits the snooze button more than three times every morning! People in their 20s and 30s – more than half of them – hit snooze. No big deal, right? After all, noth ...[click to continue]
Honestly, this is one of the BIGGEST “I told ‘ems!” of my career. Let me explain that phrase for the many newcomers. An “I told ‘em!” is where I said it years or DECADES before it was accepted by the medical profession. I’ve had many dozens of these over the years, from low-dose sublingual desensitization (SLIT, you can Google it!), to brain allergies; from ambient xenobiotic chemicals sensitizing individuals to foods, to finding migraine is 95% food allergy. I said it and I knew I was right. It just took “science” a long time to catch up. In the interim, I’ve been called a crook and a fraud, a charlatan and quack. They called my food allergy stuff “Mumby-Jumbo” at the local hospitals in my ci ...[click to continue]

Antibiotics And Sudden Death

I’ve talked before about the dangers of antibiotics. Not just the fact that they are becoming ineffective, due to multiple drug resistance by bacteria… I’m talking about antibiotics actually killing people. According to the American College for Gastroenterology antibiotics are the single largest class of drugs that cause drug-induced liver injury. In fact, this complication accounts for about 13 percent of cases of acute liver failure and is the most common cause of death from acute liver failure. What should be really scary is that in about three quarters of the cases (73%), this happened after a ...[click to continue]
The medical term for a blood clot is deep vein thrombosis (DVT). They are typically located in the arms, legs, or groin area. It is a serious condition that can worsen if small pieces of the clotted blood break loose and travel through your blood stream to other parts of your body. Check out the typical causes for blood clots. Many can affect either gender at any age. Learning how to prevent blood clots is crucial to your health!

Primary Risk Factors for Blood Clots

  • Sedentary lifestyle or excessive travel requiring you to sit for long periods
  • Limited mobility – confinement to bed or wheelchair
  • Recent surgical procedure or invasive procedure< ...[click to continue]

Measles Weasels - The Measles Outbreak 2014

The number of people infected linked to the measles outbreak 2014 at Disney amusement parks in southern California currently stands at 99, according to the news today. As one writer joked, Mickey Mouse seems to be calling the shots! According to the Associated Press, the majority of kids who contracted measles have not had the MMR vaccine. Reading between the lines, that means a number of children DID have the MMR vaccine—and yet still caught the measles. They don’t say how many, of course. It’s the same every epidemic and has been since the dawn of vaccinations. Some kids get the disease anyway. That’s not to write off vaccination as always worthless… < ...[click to continue]
I love the power of the mind! It is the impetus behind every word you speak, memory, emotion, and dream. It coordinates all the basic functions such as temperature, circulation, digestion, and immune response. Through the network of your spinal cord and nerve highway, it alerts you to hunger, cold, and pain over every microscopic inch of your body. If not for your brain and its awesome capabilities, your body wouldn’t know how to grow, how to avoid a problem through reflex, or even how to sweat. Is it any wonder that scientists are now looking at the brain to learn better ways to preserve and grow muscle? It’s not much different from what it already does for you!

You know that I write a great deal about the inflammatory effects of foods. If you became the expert in just that one aspect of a healthy lifestyle, you could live long and be healthy (in cooperation with Mother Nature, of course!) But, there is one aspect of healthy eating I rarely discuss. It came to mind recently and I want to share it with you. I call it the “dynamics of food” (as opposed to the composition). My wife Vivien and I were sitting at breakfast with our good friend Jane Andrews, from Brisbane, Australia. We were just munching on delicious croissants; something to do with our love of France, I suppose. ...[click to continue]
Vitamin D determines the function of more than 2,000 genes in the human body. It is a miracle vitamin that has been scientifically proven in one study after another to boost your overall health! Your skin produces fat-soluble vitamin D (which is technically a steroid vitamin) in response to the sun. It is an essential nutrient that your body uses to metabolize phosphorous and calcium. Bone abnormalities such as osteoporosis (fragile bones) and osteomalacia (soft bones) are higher in people who are vitamin D deficient. Vitamin D Deficiency Causes…
Being married to a fashion designer, I get to hear things that most doctors wouldn’t know. Like the virtually unknown toxic jeans problem! Today’s jeans, dyed with really poisonous cheap chemicals, are hurting the people who wear them. Do the manufacturers care? Of course not. Like the food industry, their only interest is making money and they will not stop short of killing and poisoning people. Cheap and very toxic dyes rub off, are absorbed via the skin and do a lot of damage. The effect is much worse in the presence of moisture— when wearing new jeans you may even notice your skin has become dyed with the fabric color. If so, throw away this garment. Your liver does not like you wearing dyed jeans.

Using cold laser therapy for pain sounds like something out of science fiction! You might be shocked to know it has been used successfully to treat chronic pain and heal wounds for the past decade. It isn’t “new” science, however. In the past forty years, there have been more than 2,500 studies done on the use and effectiveness of cold laser therapy. As I mentioned in my article about intranasal phototherapy, we are made of light and energy. It makes sense that light and energy can help us to heal.
