Opioids: Not the Only Choice

July 18, 2018

We’ve all heard about the out-of-control Opioid Epidemic; 42,000 died of opioid overdoses in 2016. It’s gotten so out-of-control that people are being told to carry Narcan with them in case they come across someone who has OD’ed on opioids! But what do we really know about this crisis and how did it get so […]

No ECGs for Healthy People

July 15, 2018

In spite of allopathic medicine wanting to test everyone for everything, one government bod, the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), says that “ECG Screening Still Bad Idea in Low-CV-Risk Asymptomatic Patients.” They made this statement in 2012 and they made it again this year. “Resting or exercise screening ECG should be avoided in asymptomatic adults […]

July 11, 2018

In a commentary on Medscape a doctor asked a question that I thought had been answered decades ago. “Low Back Pain: Should We Recommend Chiropractic Care?” The NY Times published the following article in 1987: “U.S. Judge Finds Medical Group Conspired Against Chiropractors.” Everyone should read how blithely the AMA sought to crush the Chiropractic profession […]

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Ever the optimist, I saw the title of a Medscape article “A Revised Approach for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome” as a possible breakthrough in the treatment of this condition. After all, allopathic medicine does need a different approach than the drugs that form the basis of current treatment. But once again I was disappointed because right […]

June 27, 2018

Dr. Mandrola, a cardiac electrophysiologist who I cited in my blog “Could Ablation for AFib Be An Elaborate Placebo?” interviews a colleague, Dr. Gupta, in an article titled “What Is the Role of Ablation for AF in a Post-CABANA World?” about a new ablation study.

Drug Testing for Hypertension Patients

June 24, 2018

A recent Medscape article made me wonder if doctors know they are being cast in the role of Big Brother for drug companies. The article is titled “Drug Test Spurs Frank Talk Between Hypertension Patients and Doctors.” It seems that a simple urine test will be able to tell your doctor whether or not you […]

Mitochondria Need Magnesium 

June 17, 2018

A Medscape overview of mitochondria highlighted for me the extreme importance of magnesium, but inexplicably the article failed to mention magnesium. Let me summarize the article for you.
