CBD for You and Me!

By |May 1st, 2018|Aging Gracefully, Anxiety/Stress, Cancer, Cardiovascular and Diabetes, Drugs, Pain, Uncategorized|

CBD oil is a Natural Medicine found in the Cannabis plant.  No one can get “high” on it.  But it is an effective medicine for multiple issues as well as for longevity.  CBD regenerates the human body and brain to be more youthful.  It changes lives, and the cities and states who embrace it may experience significant growth and a revitalized economy.  But, as the popularity of the Cannabis plant has grown over the past decade, the pharmaceutical industry has been busy behind the scenes.  There are currently serious legal obstacles posed by the FDA (Federal Drug Administration).

Demonizing Coconut Oil… Again!?

DEMONIZING COCONUT OIL…Again!?

 

It all started on June 16th with an article in USA Today proclaiming:

   “Coconut Oil isn’t healthy.   It’s never been healthy.”   

and

   “The American Heart Association recently released a report advising against the use of coconut oil.”

View the full USA Today article

         Recommendation regarding the AHA’s demonization of Coconut Oil:  

                  Think further than your instant fears.

 

 OUR ‘TAKE’ IN A NUTSHELL

This article looks like it was written by the Vegetable Oil Manufacturing Association.  In our opinion, we would like to see more science and actual studies, […]

Do Dogs Need Fruits and Vegetables?

 

Have you ever wondered about the value (or harm) we humans cause by feeding our animals like ourselves?   For example, have your dogs been happily munching raw carrots as treats for years, like ours?   Could that actually be a good thing, or is it not a good idea?   There are arguments, data, and science supporting both sides of this issue.

 

First, let me note that no one at Lotus Blossom Clinic is a trained veterinarian, and you are encouraged always to […]

THE OILS YOU EAT: ARE THEY CAUSING HEART ATTACKS?

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 […]

Dangerous Food

By |December 15th, 2015|Food as Medicine|

We found information on “Monsanto’s BT-Toxins Found to Kill Human Embryo Cells”

 

At Lotus Blossom Clinic, “Food is Medicine” is a foundational principle.  It’s just as true for humans as it is for our cars.  You put bad gas in your car–or worse, something which doesn’t belong there such as chlorine or cement–and you will soon have a “sick” car.  While these may seem extreme examples, that’s exactly what’s going on with much of the commercial food supply in America.  We see the results of chronic, harmful food consumption in our clinic every day.  (It’s what you do MOST of the […]

THE END OF ANTIBIOTICS IS NEAR

The end of Antibiotics Grows Near as Drug-Resistant Gene with Epidemic Potential is Found in Animals, Meats, and Humans.     This is the title on Dr. Mercola’s health-science news email today, December 2, 2015.  And his lead statement, issuing dire warnings, was from the head of the World Health Organization.

Professor Timothy Walsh of the University of Cardiff, who co-authored a study done in China from 2011 – 2014, drove home the severity of the situation in a statement to the […]

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 […]

Those of us reading this article likely live in a comfortable, temperature-controlled environment.  Unfortunately, from an evolutionary aspect having no temperature challenges MAY ages us, make our bodies’ systems lazy, and possibly build up toxins contributing to all manner of issues such as cancer, arthritis, and sagging skin.

 

Cryotherapy is a huge industry, particularly in the sports world of professional athletes and Hollywood Stars.   Here’s the call to action:   What if, in 3 minutes just a few times each week, you could gain/regain:

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 […]

“In questions of science the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.”

—Galileo Galilei, 1564-1642

 

Suzanne Somers was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001.  She understood that she had TIME to research and to determine her course of treatment because cancer does not kill overnight.  As she began to study the situation, she was horrified with conventional cancer treatment’s lack of success with chemotherapy.  For example, according to her research, Testicular Cancer, […]

It is Time for Your Autumn Wellness Visit. 

By |October 2nd, 2014|Allergies & Autoimmune, Diabetes, Environmental Health|


 

Autumn is here and the weather is turning cooler.  This type of change in season can affect your health. The season changes, but your body may not change as quickly;  it can put you out of balance and cause a variety of problems.  It may be time for a wellness visit to your local Acupuncturist.

 

WHY WELLNESS VISITS?

Wellness visits are very important.  You don’t want to wait until you have a huge problem before you visit.  Men are especially bad at taking care of themselves this way.  This is primarily from my observations and from discussions with my female patients […]
