Why modern medicine is an abysmal failure

Why modern medicine is an abysmal failure

  I once had a client who was a textbook illustration of the failure of modern medicine. He came to me reporting a medical history of fainting episodes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and heartburn. He said his medications included these: Ranitidine (for heartburn) Hydrochlorothiazide (for hypertension) Amlodipine (for hypertension) Atorvastatin (for cholesterol) After talking with him about his fainting episodes and reviewing his diet record, I began to suspect that he was allergic to...

Change isn’t easy, but it’s worth it

Change isn’t easy, but it’s worth it

  As you read this today, I am driving my SUV down the east coast with my 3 cats in tow (meowing incessantly) and my son following me in his truck, moving to our new home in Florida.  I have been a mixed bag of emotions these last few months, ranging from sheer excitement and happiness about the new house and living in the Sunshine State to anxiety and sadness over leaving my beautiful home...

It’s a fact—carb addiction is real! (Here’s how to break free)

It’s a fact—carb addiction is real! (Here’s how to break free)

  I once worked with someone who absolutely could not say no to starchy carbs and sugars. She always had a box of some kind of chip or cracker in her desk at work. She used to sneak to the little store across the street from the office and buy cookies or candy after lunch. When we would have a birthday celebration for a co-worker, she would take a second piece of cake later in...

I have a secret to tell you

  I have a little secret to share with you. Today is my birthday, and not only that, this is my LAST birthday in the 50s. Gulp! And while knocking on the door of 60 may sound a little scary on the surface, I honestly feel great! I’m still running every week, doing full-contact karate sparring (fighting men), and enjoying a consistent high level of energy. Plus I recently got mistaken as my daughter’s sister...

A disturbing trend in our society today

A disturbing trend in our society today

  In addition to being the month in which yours truly was born, August is also National Wellness Month. And while that sounds very virtuous and positive, based on my observations, there isn’t a lot of “wellness” going on. The statistics are downright shocking:  Nearly 75 percent of us are overweight or obese, seven out of 10 of us take one or more prescription medications every day, over 70 percent have digestive problems and half...

You better do this—it’s a matter of life or death

You better do this—it’s a matter of life or death

  When I first meet with a client, I typically ask them what’s going on and what their health concerns are.  Then I ask questions. I normally start with, “How’s your diet?” which is usually followed by the client looking at the floor or saying, “Um, not that bad.” Okey-dokey. This is followed by what I’ve observed to be the most dreaded question of all—“”What do you do for exercise?” As you can probably surmise,...
