Magnesium for Asthma

February 24, 2013

The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) is having their annual meeting this month to tackle the causes of asthma and allergy. They will have more than 850 presentations of original research at this meeting. And you can be sure nobody is going to speak about the role of magnesium deficiency in asthma. The number of speakers is far more than the audience of most alternative medicine meeting. Thousands will attend this meeting and those of all the other medical specialties; they represent big business for the drug industry,

More on Black Mold

I received some good input from my blog readers about black mold after I published my article on inhaled allergies. Toxic black mold is called Stachybotrys chartarum. It reproduces by spreading airborne spores. These spores are allergenic and also toxic since they carry mycotoxins – and you inhale them. If you already have yeast overgrowth, your […]

Polypharmacy in the Elderly

July 30, 2018

There is nothing new in this headline except the number of prescriptions to seniors has increased. “People in their silver years are golden geese to Big Pharma: More than half are on at least 5 prescriptions, some more than 20.” Thirty years ago I used a cartoon called Drug Free America in my public lectures.

Get Slim & Stay Healthy Summit

September 6, 2016

Andreea Fodor’s Video Summit, Get Slim and Stay Healthy launches Sept 12, 2016 – my talk is on Sept 17. This summit provides an excellent opportunity for you to learn the best strategies from a host of experts on health and weight management. For me it became another great opportunity to discuss my favorite topic – magnesium. It’s hard to believe but each interview I do, I find new ways to talk about magnesium because each host has a new line of questioning. In Andreea’s case, she hadn’t studied much about magnesium and was blown away by how important it is.
