Could this be the best medicine of all?

Could this be the best medicine of all?

  That question probably grabbed your attention.  What do you think is the best medicine of all?  Many people would say antibiotics.  It’s true that they’ve helped to kill dangerous bacterial infections, but they have also destroyed our gut microbiomes (making us more susceptible to illness) and spurred the development of “Superbugs” that resist even our strongest drugs and can be life-threatening.  Others may say proton pump inhibitors (PPIs).   These drugs “work” by shutting down...

Why does the CDC continue to ignore these diseases?

Why does the CDC continue to ignore these diseases?

  In theory, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is responsible for providing current, accurate information about health-related issues for Americans.   Too bad a lot of what we’re seeing from them is neither current nor accurate.  First of all, when searching “Leading causes of death in the US,” the CDC is still showing data from 2021 (three years ago).  That’s current?  Heart disease continues to top the list with about 695,000 deaths, and...

My experiment was an abysmal failure

My experiment was an abysmal failure

  I recently conducted a little experiment to see if my suspicions were correct.  And they were.  I wrote letters to 65 local gastroenterologists in my surrounding area and along the east coast of Florida, introducing myself, including my curriculum vitae, and explaining that I would be happy to provide specialized meal suggestions and convenient guides that they could give to their patients to help address any dietary-related causes of their symptoms.  Know how many...

Got meds?  Read this before you take them today.

Got meds? Read this before you take them today.

  I have never heard of this before, but apparently October is National Talk About Prescriptions Month. Good, because I have a lot to say about that subject, so I’ll jump right in. Although there are times when medications are necessary, as a society (especially here in the US) we’ve gone WAAAY overboard and are increasingly relying on drugs to “create health” for us. The numbers prove it.  Currently the CDC reports that 82 percent...

What your sweat says about you!

What your sweat says about you!

  I recently passed a mixed martial arts (MMA) test for advanced green belt (the next level is brown belt!) and to say I was sweaty afterwards is a huge understatement.  I was telling all of my fellow MMA students after the test how my nickname in my prior 19 years of karate used to be “Sweaty Betty” and they got a big kick out of that!    All kidding aside, whether we like it or...

Trouble sleeping?  Don’t do this!

Trouble sleeping? Don’t do this!

  Back in the early 70s when I was a kid there was a song by the 5th Dimension called “(Last night) I didn’t get to sleep at all,” sung beautifully by the immensely talented Marilyn McCoo.  While the idea behind the song is her inability to sleep because her love interest was on her mind, one line of the song that is particularly intriguing is the one where she sings, “The sleeping pill I...
