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...

A very preventable cause of chronic disease

A very preventable cause of chronic disease

I remember having a conversation with a woman who told me how fortunate she felt to be in good health in her early 60's. This is how she described "good health": Her cholesterol stayed under 200 with Crestor Her blood pressure was controlled with amlodipine Omeprazole kept her acid reflux at bay Metformin brought her A1C down to < 6% THAT'S good health? This woman is anything BUT healthy. What she has is a chemically...

5 Ways to prevent (or turn around) insulin resistance

  I was in line at my local Publix grocery store recently and noticed that the line for the pharmacy was longer than any of the grocery checkout lines. That should tell you something. When it comes to a sickly population, the US has that covered very well.  And what we are seeing more and more is the existence of multiple conditions and factors that combined can spell early death for many, and certainly a...

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...

Rates of this killer are exploding—will you be next?

Rates of this killer are exploding—will you be next?

  Although heart disease and cancer still remain our top 2 killers, there is another disease that can definitely shorten your lifespan and that is experiencing unprecedented, explosive growth. I’m talking about diabetes.   I remember when I was a kid in the 60s and 70s, diabetes was something that was not all that common.  One of my mother’s friends had it, and all I can remember is that she had to limit sweets.  Well, once...
