What modern medicine is really about (Hint: It’s not health)

What modern medicine is really about (Hint: It’s not health)

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines “medicine” as:  The science and art dealing with the maintenance of health and the prevention, alleviation, or cure of disease. I think they need to revisit this definition because I don’t see a lot of “health maintenance,” “prevention,” or “cure of disease” going on. What I do see is a system that is entirely captured and controlled by pharma to the extent that most times, the best you can hope for...

This is even worse than sugar for your health!

This is even worse than sugar for your health!

  If you’ve been a reader of mine even for a short while, you probably remember me talking about the dangers of sugar, especially in the toxic form of high fructose corn syrup.  Sugar is a driving force behind a whole slew of diseases and conditions including diabetes, insulin resistance, cancer, heart disease, obesity, dementia, immune dysfunction and chronic inflammation, to name a few.    And it’s no wonder that our rates of these conditions skyrocketed...

Everything you’ve been told about cholesterol is false

Everything you’ve been told about cholesterol is false

  Back when I was earning my Nutrition Master’s, one of my reading requirements was the book Deep Nutrition by Dr. Cate Shanahan.  In Deep Nutrition, Dr. Shanahan tells the story of how she was taught in medical school that cholesterol causes heart disease, that a diet low in cholesterol and saturated fats was “heart healthy,” and statins were the gold standard for lowering cholesterol. But something was troubling her. If saturated fats and cholesterol...

Read this before you take a statin for cholesterol!

Read this before you take a statin for cholesterol!

  I would venture to say that there is no subject on God’s green earth that is as poorly understood as cholesterol. When talking about cholesterol, the extent of most people’s understanding is that it’s the demon that leads to heart disease and the magic number to strive for is 200, baby. And if your blood tests show you’re in the elevated range, welcome to the world of statins. But how did we get here? ...

Are you still using these poisons?

Are you still using these poisons?

  Arguably one of the greatest frauds committed by the food industry against the human race is the creation of artificial sweeteners. I say that because at no other time in our history have we encountered such deadly poisons being willingly consumed by the masses…while our “regulators” (the FDA) have apparently ignored the mounding evidence of their health dangers and have declared them “safe for the general population.” And the marketing angles are perfect! These...

This is your most vital organ—take care of it or else!

This is your most vital organ—take care of it or else!

  October is National Liver Awareness Month. While I feel pretty confident that we are all “aware” of our livers, I’d be willing to bet that many people don’t know everything that their liver does for them. It’s arguably your most important vital organ!  In addition, unlike your other organs and systems, unfortunately you don’t always get obvious warning signs when something is awry with your liver…so yours may be suffering and you don’t even...
