Fake Scientific Research

December 19, 2018

After my last Blog “The Three Traditions of Medicine” Some readers wanted more information about “Evidence-based clinical practice guidelines.” Here’s the standard definition: “systematically developed statements to assist practitioner decisions about appropriate health care for specific clinical circumstances. Guidelines can be used to reduce inappropriate variations in practice and to promote the delivery of high quality, evidence-based health care.”  I translate […]

What’s Happening to Kids’ Brains?

December 16, 2018

Is ADHD Really Increasing? This article on Medscape came out at the same time WebMD reported the incidence of autism as 1 in 40 children. In the same news cycle there was a study by the NIH reporting the negative impact of Heavy Screen Time on Young Brains. The latest ADHD study, using 2015-2016 data, measured the prevalence […]

Botox for AFib? Seriously?

December 13, 2018

How does that make any sense? Botulinum Toxin for AF After Cardiac Surgery. Surgery puts you at risk for arrhythmia; to prevent them, doctors give beta blockers preventively. However, that ended badly for many patients. I wrote about it in a blog called “Killer Beta Blockers”.  Surgery also puts you at risk for magnesium deficiency, especially […]

The Three Traditions of Medicine

December 11, 2018

According to my friend, Susun Weed (Yes she’s a herbalist!) there are three medical traditions: Scientific, Heroic, and Wise Woman.  Let’s look at Scientific Medicine. I write in Death by Modern Medicine that since the Flexner Report in 1908 “the Carnegie and Rockefeller foundations were able to establish a ‘scientific’ medical monopoly in North America. You can […]

Be A Health Outlaw!

December 5, 2018

My blog “Why Doctors Fear Magnesium” revealed the narrow mindedness of doctors and triggered many irate stories from readers. Here’s one: “My sister has osteoarthritis, MS, fibromyalgia, and several other things and she’s gone to a rheumatologist for a while. At the last visit, the doc mentioned that my sister’s “numbers” were much better and […]

Mg Deficiency Associations

December 2, 2018

In the past year I’ve written at least a dozen blogs about various diseases that I find are related to magnesium deficiency but modern medicine remains unmoved. I’ll list the blogs and what modern medicine is missing. This oversight is negatively affecting the health of millions of patients worldwide. Modern medicine is always analyzing statistics […]

Long Term Prescriptions

November 28, 2018

When I was in medical school in the mid-70s we were taught to only give prescriptions to our patients for as short a duration as possible. Drugs provided short-term relief until a patient mustered their own defenses and were not a ‘preventive’ strategy. Now we have patients on ‘just in case’ drugs that should have […]

Head Injury & Magnesium

November 25, 2018

A recent Medscape article reported that “Head Injury Tied to Long-term Cognitive Decline, Dementia Risk”. A quarter of the 13,000 head injury victims in the study experienced long-term cognitive decline and a greater risk for dementia over the 20 years of follow up. One researcher said that the increased decline for those with head injury is […]

Why Doctors Fear Magnesium 

November 21, 2018

It doesn’t seem rationale, but doctors are afraid of magnesium because they really don’t know anything about it. In med school we were told over and over again that if we came upon some treatment that we didn’t learn in our medical training, that it just wasn’t valid. Incredibly that goes for all the nutrients […]
