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...

Don't be fooled by this wolf in sheep's clothing

Don't be fooled by this wolf in sheep's clothing

In my 17-year nutrition career, I’ve had several experiences that I will label “unsettling.” For example, I once had a client whose told me her friend had suffered a heart attack. Apparently, the friend had been taking a multi-vitamin and her doctor actually scolded her for it, saying she doesn’t need “that crap” and her diet will give her “all the nutrients she needs.” Sorry doc, but you’re all wet, and it’s painfully obvious you...

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 woman is anything BUT healthy. What she has is a chemically...

Are you being manipulated like this?

Are you being manipulated like this?

Are you being manipulated like this? I’ve been in the health field for 40 years in one capacity or another, and although being able to help others has been a rewarding blessing to me, I’ve also “gone down a rabbit hole” and come to realize the extent of the dark side of our modern medical system. Now, before I ruffle any feathers, I want to stress that there are exceptions to everything, and what I’m...

Did you know about this hidden danger of acid reflux?

Did you know about this hidden danger of acid reflux?

  April is National Esophageal Cancer Awareness Month. And although I’m not a big fan of “awareness” events because they are typically a lot of hoopla and not much more, this one deserves mention. Because there is a distinct “string of events” that can lead to esophageal cancer, and the first of those is a condition that affects a whopping 66 million Americans.  Acid reflux. AKA GERD. Here’s what happens: It all starts with heartburn!...

6 Steps to a longer, disease-free life

6 Steps to a longer, disease-free life

  I’m going to be blunt this morning. If you are interested in living a longer, disease-free life, our modern healthcare system is not the way to do it. I thought of this on Wednesday as I was walking into a local medical center for my annual GYN exam. Practically everyone around me in the lobby was overweight, or could barely walk without difficulty, or looked like they were at death’s door. And of course,...
