There are tens if not hundreds of thousands of papers like this one below, attesting to the value of this and that of nutrient supplement. Yet still the medical profession cries that nutrients don’t do anything, they are a waste of time, a fraud even. Professional liar Paul Offit MD, in his book Do You Believe in Magic? Vitamins, Supplements, and All Things Natural: A Look Behind the Curtain claims that even though some popular therapies are remarkably helpful due to the placebo response, many of them are ineffective, expensive, and even deadly. What a con artist. Officially, not one single instance of a death due to a vitamin supplement took place last reported year. The latest (2013) from the American Association of Poiso ...[click to continue]
I talk to you about your gut health because it is so much more important than many realize.

Your Body’s Second Brain

In fact, the gut is considered a third branch of your central nervous system made up of more than 100 million nerves working together to communicate through the nerve pathways to the rest of your body. The enteric nervous system (ENS) is referred to by experts as your body’s “second brain.” Your gut health influences every aspect of your health. A recent review released by the University of California confirmed that the gut and brain share a “complex bidirectional communication system that not only ensures the proper maintenance of digestion but is likely to have multiple effects on affect, motivation, ...[click to continue]
Doesn’t everyone know the dangers of high fructose corn syrup to your health? Well, the food industry says it isn’t (yeah, right). The FDA (who are notoriously corrupt) hasn’t noticed anything! And the average doctor around the world (who hasn’t even tumbled that sugar is bad for health!)… When was the last time your doctor asked you about what you ate and drank before prescribing? They never ask because they know NOTHING about the effects of corrupted, processed food. Or at least they do: it’s 90% of their medical practice; but they are simply not joining up the dots. ...[click to continue]
Is it possible that smart people live longer? I know a lot of my readers are baby boomers like me – but even if you are younger or older... you want to make sure you reach a ripe old age, ready to take on whatever life has in store for you! You know, people can ride horses and enjoy sex after the age of 100 years, for goodness sake! Don’t settle for less… Even mild cognitive impairment can have a disastrous impact on life expectancy. 4,000 older adults were studied in a report published by the Annals of Internal Medicine; the researchers discovered that the degree of cognitive impairment at baseline was clearly associated with an increased risk for death. ...[click to continue]
The question about what foods you should eat every day is one of the most common that I receive. There are really two parts to the answer. The first part is ancient history. Before “civilization,” humans consisted on a basic hunter-gatherer diet. Most of the foods consumed were “gatherer” foods since the “hunter” aspect was a hit or miss proposition. I’ve been talking about this for years but it’s finally going mainstream as the Paleo diet.

The Basics of the Paleo Diet

This most recent fad is really not a fad at all. In fact, when one considers “diets,” this one ...[click to continue]
A bizarre thought, I admit. Follow along with me… This morning Vivien and I were having coffee in our favorite coffee bar (coffee is good for senility, heart disease, cancer and several other conditions, don’t you know!) But, as I have said often: that’s only for proper coffee, European style, espresso, not latte or schlock with syrup. All of a sudden there is tremendous noise and confusion, with certain musical overtones, admittedly. These people, I said to Vivien, are not scared of making a racket; in fact, if anything, they seem scared of peace and quiet; as if their empty heads would just rattle, without some input! Viv smiled and sipped her almond milk cappuccino with double-foam. Anyway, it turned out to be a new Mom’ ...[click to continue]
Did you know that kidney (renal) failure is officially the ninth leading cause of death? Renal failure occurs when your kidneys are suddenly unable to filter waste matter from your blood. Dangerous toxins build up quickly in your system and result in acute kidney failure in as little as a few days. There have been cases that have advanced to the critical point within hours! Once your kidneys reach end-stage renal failure, you will be unable to survive without a transplant or long-term dialysis (mechanical device that filters your blood for you). There may be no symptoms of kidney failure until lab work is done for another condition. If you do experience symptoms, it is crucial that you immediately seek medical attention. When yo ...[click to continue]
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]
There have been decades of negative information about the side effects of artificial sweeteners regarding being cancer causing and completely toxic to your body. Artificial sweeteners have been linked to...
  • Cancer
  • Depression

As if that wasn’t bad enough, there is new evidence that the two conditions they were thought to help control is actually worsened by their use!

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]
