Alzheimer’s Disease: Pineal Calcification 

August 8, 2018

Sayer Ji on his website GreenMedInfo writes a thorough report on pineal calcification as a cause of Alzheimer’s disease. Of course, in my magnesium world any sort of calcification means magnesium deficiency and the treatment is saturation levels of magnesium to overcome the deficiency. He mentions magnesium in the article but unfortunately most health experts suffer under […]

Another Anti-Vitamin Study

August 5, 2018

Grrrrrr. Medscape happily published the following article “No Scientific Proof That Multivitamins Promote Heart Health.”  And I said a little prayer for all the people who will read this nonsense and stop taking their multivitamins and forfeit another piece of their health. You may know that I’m not that keen on most multivitamins because they are […]

Pulling the Plug on Protandim

August 1, 2018

I’m happy that more and more people are using natural supplements but sometimes the hype goes too far. The hype is especially true for MLM companies where proselytizing members help ratchet up the placebo effect to incredible heights. One MLM product, Protandim has crossed my path many times – the most recent, a fanatic member […]

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. […]

NSAIDs + Anticoagulants a Dangerous Combination

July 25, 2018

Medscape announced their conclusion from a recent clinical investigation finding that “NSAIDs Plus Anticoagulants a Dangerous Combination” leading to major bleeding and stroke. Unfortunately, it’s common practice to put drugs on the market without identifying their interactions with other common drugs. And it’s only years afterward in what’s called “post marketing surveillance” that problems are […]

Cold Shock Therapy: Too Shocking

July 22, 2018

This blog is a wordhack on Dr. Jack Kruse the neurosurgeon, biohacker, Paleo blogger, who is a proponent of cold shock therapy, sunlight, and high dose vitamin D. Kruse runs his findings through the lens of endocrine hormones, which he says control everything in the body. But what makes and controls hormones – what are […]

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 […]

Chiropractic for Low Back Pain? Of Course

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 […]

During our “Lower Your Infectious Load” webinar on June 28, 2018, Ginney and I explained how to strengthen your immune system to deal with the over 39 trillion microorganisms that inhabit the body and when out of balance can cause low grade or subclinical infections. I explained allopathic medicine’s Whack-A-Mole policy of attacking each infection […]
