Establishment medicine perpetuates the cholesterol myth

Last week the British Journal of Sports Medicine (BJSM) published an article debunking longstanding claims that saturated fat clogs arteries and pointing out that coronary disease is a chronic inflammatory condition. Even though studies bear the author out, the article created quite a stir in orthodox medicine.

Orthodox medicine embracing the food-is-medicine concept

One of my main criticisms of orthodox medicine over the years has been the lack of real nutritional training and understanding for and by doctors. My years of research led me to understand that almost all of America’s health problems are directly related to diet. In other words, when Americans get sick, what they need is a wholesale change in diet, not synthetic chemicals to mask the symptoms of disease. Many researchers in the past and the present know this, and I’ve written about it for more than 20 years. Now orthodox medicine is finally listening.

Deciphering the new PSA test guidelines

Is confusion the order of the day in the medical community? It would seem so, because every few years or so another respected (by medical orthodoxy) and influential government advisory panel will issue new, contradictory recommendations that send patients into a state of confusion and into the arms of orthodox doctors for clarity. This time it’s the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force reversing its advice of five years ago regarding men and the prostate specific antigen (PSA) test.

Vitamin C for treating infection

A Virginia physician has found that vitamin C delivered intravenously is a successful treatment for many sepsis patients. But the medical establishment is resisting. How can traditional doctors fear the use of vitamin C? Its anti-inflammatory properties have long been known. That’s why your mother probably told you to drink orange juice when you had a cold or flu.

Do we need vitamins for health?

The vitamin business is for the most part a huge deception simply because at least 90 percent of vitamins are synthetics. They are extractions or chemical creations of laboratories. They are man-made and, by strict definition, they are drugs. Most of these vitamins are produced by just a few pharmaceutical companies. They are repackaged and repurposed and renamed to give the illusion of choice.

Detoxifying the body’s city dump

The human liver was created to be a human garbage disposal. But in many people their liver is a city dump. The result is that over-waste means overwork. The liver is the focal organ of sickness and disease because the liver accumulates toxins from an over indulgent body until it is overloaded, breaks down and disease becomes apparent.

Vitamin A, the common cold and infection

Vitamin A is not very stable. Since it is easily destroyed by heat and we cook almost everything, we don’t get nearly enough vitamin A. Researchers have also concluded that pesticides and other environmental factors inhibit our body’s ability to use vitamin A. Alcohol use, medications and any medical condition that interferes with the body’s digestion of fat also contribute to deficiency.

Noninvasive ways to clean your arteries of plaque

Numerous studies – several of them many years old – show that insertion of a arterial stent does not prevent heart attacks and does not extend the lives of patients. Yet mainstream doctors continue to install stents as if by rote. The physicians would rather be seen as having done something even when doing nothing is a better option.

Broccoli: The vegetable of youth

I’ve previously written to you about broccoli’s anti-cancer properties. But now we have something new on this special food. Research from the Washington School of Medicine in St. Louis discovered that a compound found in broccoli is converted by the body into the coenzyme NAD (nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide) that plays a key role in the energy production at the cellular level. NAD production slows as we age and our energy supply dwindles.

Why marriage is good for your health

Researchers have found that those who are married produce lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol than those who have never been married or who were previously married. Cortisol is produced during prolonged periods of stress and it has been shown to interfere with the body’s ability to regulate inflammation which leads to the development and progression of many diseases.

Don’t believe your mother; milk is really bad for you

Commercial milk is dead. All the enzymes and nutrition have been killed with heat. The USDA promotes milk consumption but does not tell you there is no milk for the American consumer. Raw wholesome milk was phased out more than 60 years ago under the pretense of health. Live, whole, fresh milk has been replaced with a pasteurized and later homogenized liquid called “milk.” This product of commerce has absolutely no similarity to whole cow’s milk except both are white.

Artificial sweeteners create weight gain, larger waistlines and obesity

Low-calorie sweetener use is independently associated with heavier relative weight, a larger waist, and a higher prevalence and incidence of abdominal obesity suggesting that low-calorie sweetener use may not be an effective means of weight control. I will go further and state that low-calorie sweetener use is not an effective means of weight control, nor does it contribute positively to health.

Lyme disease is America’s secret silent plague

Lyme disease produces a host of symptoms including fever, chills, headache, fatigue, muscle and joint aches, swollen lymph nodes, facial palsy, swollen joints and rash which begin within 3 to 30 days after the tick bite. People may have Lyme disease and not test positive for it; others who do test positive did not suspect it or can’t recall being bitten by a tick.
