plaque in artery

It is relatively easy to create a healthy heart…why doesn’t everyone do it?   Of course, there are many reasons, one being this:  For years we’ve had so much flat-out wrong advice from the food industry, magazines, the government, and well-intentioned doctors that it is no wonder people are confused.   I’m here to clear all that up.  Wish me luck!

Here’s some of the “gold” right up front.  The demonized “Saturated Fats” are what nature WANTS us to consume, and what the vegetable oil industry has been touting as “heart-healthy vegetable […]

Scary Results From Last Week’s Email


We’ve had a ton of feedback on last week’s email, and the truth is pretty scary–dangerous drug/herb interactions, improper use of herbs and supplements, and more are happening all too commonly. We also discovered that not everyone discloses or remembers everything they are taking when they fill out the physician intake forms at our clinic or their other primary doctor’s offices. We want to stress how vital it is that your medical professionals know everything that you are taking, down to your powdered green supplements. Because we are concerned that there are more of […]

o-GUT-BACTERIA-facebookPart 1:  What’s Germinating in Your Gut?

The New Frontier in Medicine is the trillions of tiny microbes in our guts which determine everything from one’s propensity to gain and hold weight to how our brains function.  We hear and see evidence of this New Frontier all around us as science gains understanding of these tiny creatures and their direct links to our health.


In truth, we are more bacteria than we are human.  And they inhabit more than just our gut, but for our purposes now, we’ll stick with the gut.   And, […]

How Ebola’s Most Lethal Aspect Works
And What’s the Rest of the Story?
“As noted by (renowned viral expert) Dr. Robert Rowen, Ebola hijacks your immune system and suppresses it. Once your immune system realizes the virus is there, it launches a cytokine storm, and it is this cytokine storm that leads to massive tissue destruction and capillary leakage.” – Dr. Mercola’s article published on 11-4-14
Sensationalism and Fear abound in the news media about this potentially-deadly disease. And, it’s time for a dose of Natural Medicine and Sanity on this topic, don’t you think? First of all, here are some of […]

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine for Autoimmune Disorders

Over 50 million Americans suffer from autoimmune disease. An autoimmune disease occurs when the body’s immune system attacks healthy tissue. Autoimmune disorders include rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, thyroid disease, Addison’s disease, pernicious anemia, celiac disease, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis and Guillain-Barré syndrome. This is real suffering…and there is a LOT of it out there, but few real answers. Most of the standard treatments in Western Medicine have unpleasant or even dangerous side effects. The problem is they are not solving the problem…and they can be causing others.

Due to the complexity of treating autoimmune disorders, […]

What Killed Seymour?

The death last month of actor Seymour Hoffman raised the awareness in our nation that there may be a direct connection between prescription painkillers and heroine use.  Indeed, there are plenty of studies providing evidence of this.

Not only that, but researchers have been gathering shocking data about the over prescription, inappropriate prescription (e.g. to pregnant women!), and overuse of painkillers.   People get hooked on the painkillers, and then when they can’t get the prescriptions, some resort to street drugs.  That’s what killed Seymour.  He apparently got a super powerful batch of heroine, and the needle was […]

Yin – Yang — Acupuncture and Chinese medicine

By |April 3rd, 2014|Chinese Medicine|

Yin and Yang

Chinese Medicine Chinese Medicine

Almost every Traditional Chinese Medicine text starts out with a discussion of Yin and Yang. At its origin the Yin and Yang symbol represents the idea that everything has an opposite and everything is meant to be in balance. In order to have light you must also have darkness. The symbol used to describe Yin and Yang shows them opposing each other but at the same time with Yin there is Yang and within Yang there is Yin. It also shows that Yin and Yang […]
