What IS Autoimmune Disease?

It affects millions of Americans, and it’s becoming more and more widespread.  “It” goes by names like Multiple Sclerosis, Celiac’s Disease, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Psoriasis, Type 1 Diabetes, and more…

 

“It” is a disorder of the body’s immune system in which the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys its own body tissue–which it “believes” to be foreign.

 

There are many symptoms […]

Common Breakfast Mistakes
The most common mistake people make with their breakfast is to eat typical breakfast foods, most of which are highly processed and loaded with sugars. This includes waffles, cereal, toast, muffins, bagels and other breakfast sandwiches. These are some of the absolute worst foods you can eat. They satiate your current hunger but set you up for metabolic disasters and fuel excess body fat and obesity-related diseases.
There are many thousands of well done peer reviewed studies that support the harmful effects […]

By |January 5th, 2017|acupuncture, Allergies & Autoimmune, Cancer, Cardiovascular and Diabetes, Diabetes, Food as Medicine|

 

It’s a typical January topic:  Create The New YOU in the New Year!  But you’ve never heard this method to lose the weight and feel great!   This method is entirely novel due to a silver bullet tool.   Science is proving that it is the Gut Microbial Balance that’s keeping people from losing and keeping the weight off.

 

IT ALL STARTED IN 2008. 

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded and kicked off a second, major research project called The Human Microbiome.  (The first one was the Human Genome Project.)  These […]

 “Stunning research reveals gut bug balance causing everything from diabetes to colon cancer!” –Glenn S. Rothfeld from his new book, The Atlas of Natural Cures

 

The science of the human body’s essential and symbiotic relationship with bacteria and other microbes is continually growing.  Over the last decade, scientific evidence has begun to create a landscape of connections to healing options for specific conditions.  This has been on the radar of naturopathic and functional medicine practitioners for decades, and now some Western M.D.’s are coming to the party, and that’s […]

OIL OF OREGANO: Can it take the place of Antibiotics?

By |March 29th, 2016|Allergies & Autoimmune, Drugs, Environmental Health, Food as Medicine, Intestinal Health, Uncategorized|

oregano-oilI’ve gargled with it for a few seconds and immediately stopped a sore throat in its tracts.  It was used by Hippocrates, the Father of Modern Medicine, in the 5th Century B.C.    I’m talking about Oregano with its anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and anti-fungal effects.  It has also been known to kill MRSA, Listeria, and other pathogens.  And with modern antibiotics becoming less and less effective in the face of new and more virulent strains of bacteria, we need to go back to our ancestors’ medicine chests.

 

Oregano is both a common […]

Do you know what really killed Robin Williams back in 2014?  Williams’ autopsy included an analysis of his brain, and what they discovered was tragic.   He had Lewey Body Dementia.   This disease is similar to Alzheimer’s but with other outward characteristics more like Parkinsons such as muscle twitches.  At night, his muscles were fully activated (and working) even during dream time.  Sleep disturbances are common with this disease.  Many brain processes were not working well in this man, which helps to understand why he had his own bedroom, separate […]

SAY “GOODBYE” TO THE MERCURY IN YOUR MOUTH

 

Dr. David’s wife, Deb Martin reporting here.  In August, 2015, with some trepidation, I walked into McGinty Dental Group’s practice to have my old mercury fillings removed.   I had real concern about breathing in toxic particles as the mercury was drilled out.   But I already knew that this office was TOPS at safely […]

THIS FOOD IS KILLING US, SOFTLY, SLOWLY

Wayne Dyer, a well-established self-help and personal growth guru, recently said to a crowd of 3,000 people: “You can change your consciousness by changing your food.”  Our brains become clearer and our bodies function best when we eat foods our body is capable of using for fuel, and there’s a lot out there these days that we cannot process.   In Wayne’s own experience, very debilitating conditions can reverse with food changes.    For example, his wife had Grand Mal epileptic seizures until his friend, Dr. David Perlmutter, suggested she stop eating wheat.  […]

ARE YOU ADDICTED TO THIS POISON?

Don’t ask someone to avoid THIS food!    It’s considered almost sacred, and any attempts to suggest  otherwise are often met with active resistance.   Yes, I’m talking about wheat, and that means all forms of it, including whole wheat and even spouted wheat (which is actually worse because it’s more “alive”).   I mentioned to someone today that I was writing this article.  His response was a quick and defensive:    “I’m GOOD with gluten!  I have no issues with it.”    Little does he […]
