Why are people everywhere losing it?

Why are people everywhere losing it?

  While it’s a good idea to be informed, I’ve got to say that it’s getting harder and harder to see what’s going on in our world and not feel horrified or frightened. For example, I just saw that three security guards at a Staten Island, NY hospital were slashed with a sharp object and nurses were attacked (with one being bitten) Sunday morning around 4am. The attacks were apparently carried out by a 19-year-old...

How to keep your brain sharp into your golden years

How to keep your brain sharp into your golden years

  In our society today, sadly many health issues are accepted as “normal” consequences of aging. These include impaired hearing, weight gain, arthritis, reduced stamina, constipation, and the one that is probably feared the most… mental impairment ! As in, forgetfulness, dementia, “CRS disease.” But the thing is, NONE of these issues are “normal” and certainly are not a “given” as we age! The reason they rear their ugly heads as we get older is...

Got gas?  Here’s how to sweeten the air around you.

Got gas? Here’s how to sweeten the air around you.

  I used to do karate with a guy whose farts were so putrid that they were more deadly than any punch or kick he could throw.    I remember dreading when I would be matched with him in sparring, just waiting for the stench to permeate my nostrils.  Sure, I could block his punches and kicks, but nothing could stop that hideous odor.  And you certainly didn’t want to be near him when we did...

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...

This is vital for good health and a long life

This is vital for good health and a long life

  Although the mainstream medical community is progressing toward acknowledging the importance of your gut in overall health, some of them still have a way to go.    I was recently asked by a doctor if I thought it was important for her to take probiotics after finishing a course of “triple therapy” for ulcers—which consists of two antibiotics and an antacid.   As tempted as I was to say, “Duh,” I responded respectfully and said yes,...

What you might not know about colon cancer

What you might not know about colon cancer

  Back in 1978 (when I was 15 years old) and a mere six months after my father died suddenly, my mother was diagnosed with colon cancer.  I remember being terrified at the prospect of losing both parents within a short time of each other, and colon cancer seemed like such a mystery to me.  Thankfully, it’s no mystery anymore (more on that below), but back then it seemed like anyone was fair game for...
