I’m a firm believer in removing foods or beverages in groups to determine the source of health concerns.  This is especially helpful when it comes to allergies, food intolerance, unexplained fatigue, and chronic inflammation.  You might think you have a problem with tomatoes or cheese when it’s actually the grains in the pasta you’re serving […]

Another “I Told ‘Em!” My regular subscribers know I like to joke about this from time to time… things I taught and wrote about decades ago are suddenly being “discovered” by today’s doctors and scientists.

We have sayings like “You are what you eat” and “One man’s meat is another man’s poison.” That was before political correctness (PC) and women were allowed to be wrecked too! Now the gals can join in. They have all their own peculiar symptoms and we’ve gifted one of ours to them! It’s surprising how […]

No, no, no – listen to what I’m really saying… Someone sent me a piece to critique. It was by a “colleague”, meaning someone who wrote health info too. An MD… but he didn’t seem to know much. A windbag, as we would say in Olde Englande! He mentions food allergy…. Do the casein and […]

Asthma is the most common childhood disease and it affects children from all walks of life, all socio-economic levels, and is often under-diagnosed. Airways in the lungs become inflamed, narrowing the path for oxygen. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates more than 300 million people suffer from the debilitating effect of asthma. In poorer countries, […]

Modified food but not GMO! I like this. Of course there may be reduced nutrient value but nobody lives on peanuts (do they?) Anyway, I think it will save lives. We just have to see how it checks out in practice. According to MedScape, the U.S. Department of Agriculture blogged the fact that researchers at […]

A man died in California this week of a massive infection with parasitic worms that spread throughout his body, including his lungs. He was probably infected in Vietnam, one of the countries where this particular worm is found. The worms, a species called Strongyloides stercoralis – had remained dormant, until his immune system was suppressed […]
