Let’s Prevent Heart Disease 

September 12, 2018

It seems a reasonable statement. Let’s not wait until you have full blown heart disease requiring a half-dozen drugs. Let’s keep your heart healthy and prevent heart disease. But in a Medscape article, “Do Cardiologists Care About CV Prevention“? Dr. Walton-Shirley says that apparently they do not! Her comments arose out of the European Society […]

The Brain Can Change

September 9, 2018

I recently read Dr. Norman Doidge’s books – The Brain That Changes Itself and The Brain’s Way Of Healing. I wanted to help a friend research brain exercises to add to the Completement Formulas for his child who has been identified as a slow-learner. They are great books that provide lots of hope but I was pretty disappointed that there is […]

Can Exercise Worsen Dementia?

September 5, 2018

Well, you might as well just pack me in ice and thaw me out when medicine comes to its senses because this article “Can Exercise Worsen Dementia?” is truly scraping the barrel. At a time in our culture when we know that exercise is important on so many levels, now doubt is thrown into the […]

99% of Doctors Need Help in Making a Diagnosis

September 2, 2018

Here is the lead sentence in the Medscape article “99% of Doctors Need Diagnostic Help.”  “Medical errors have become an accepted if unfortunate part of medical care, but physicians may greatly underestimate how much they contribute to the problem.” This statement implies that medical errors are part and parcel of medicine, and there is nothing […]

Statin Use and Muscle Inflammation 

August 29, 2018

The title of a recent Medscape article “Statin Use Linked to Idiopathic Inflammatory Myositis” caught my eagle eye. First of all, let me give you the definition of Idiopathic. It means – relating to or denoting any disease or condition that arises spontaneously or for which the cause is unknown. Lord Sufferin Cats! Spontaneously? Unknown Cause? […]

Drugs for Your Genes

August 26, 2018

As far as I’m concerned, the final nail in the genetic-testing coffin was struck when GSK (GlaxcoSmithKline) announced “GSK Buys $300 Million Stake in 23andMe for Drug Research Data.” Yes, that’s right, GSK is buying into 23andMe so it can collect your data to develop new drugs and identify if you should be entered into a particular […]

Thinking of a Fluoroquinolone? Think Again

August 24, 2018

I love this title “Thinking of a Fluoroquinolone? Think Again”. It’s a Medscape Commentary that warns people about taking this very dangerous drug. It’s written by a medical officer with the Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion at the CDC. Look at the statistics: “Fluoroquinolones are the third most commonly prescribed outpatient antibiotic class in the […]

3 Nails in the Magnesium Deficiency Coffin

August 21, 2018

Three Medscape articles in a row caught my eye. I could write a blog on each one but collectively they emphasize the continued failure of modern medicine to recognize the horrendous epidemic of magnesium deficiency. All three articles put the final nail in the coffin for me that modern medicine is never going to recognize […]

Your Doctor’s Attention Span: 11 Seconds

August 15, 2018

Wow, if you had your doubts about modern medicine before, just try to grasp what this report means for your health. A recent study finds that “Doctors Give Patients 11 Seconds To Explain Reason For Visit Before Interrupting.” Only about one third of primary care doctors and 20% of specialists will actually listen to their […]

Bad Guidelines for T2 Diabetes

August 12, 2018

The guidelines for T2 Diabetes will continue to be bad, in my opinion, until modern medicine adopts the Keto Diet and Intermittent Fasting. I’m reading Dr. Jason Fung’s Diabetes Code right now and along comes a Medscape Commentary called “’Really Good’ New Guidelines for T2 Diabetes”? But there is nothing new, they are still all about drugs. […]
