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!?

By |July 5th, 2017|Cardiovascular and Diabetes, Food as Medicine, Uncategorized|



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

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


   “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.



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, […]

Sticky Stuff

The Stickiness Factor

PART 2 of 4 articles

According to Wikipedia, the Stickiness Factor is:  The specific content of a message that renders its impact memorable. Popular children’s television programs such as Sesame Street and Blue’s Clues pioneered the properties of the stickiness factor, thus enhancing effective retention of educational content as well as entertainment value.”  This article will explore some of the factors that we believe are “sticky” (as per Malcolm Gladwell’s “Tipping Point” book).  There are critical factors which are helping America alter the course of its […]


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 […]

PaAutoimmune imagert 2:  Your TWO Immune Systems

What has become clear to me (and Chinese Medicine as a whole) over the years is that Autoimmune diseases are NOT well understood by Conventional Medicine.  The common thinking is that the body is “turning against itself” for some puzzling, unknown reason.   Oftentimes I believe that pathogens, e.g. mercury, inflammatory proteins created by GMO foods, stress hormones, etc. are physically present.  The immune system is attacking them, but our healthy cells are caught in the cross fire.   Although we can’t SEE these pathogens with our current […]


Medication mistakes causing hospitalizations

Medication mistakes causing hospitalizations.

By David Martin – Acupuncture Physician, practicing Holistic medicine, in Fort Myers, Naples, Cape Coral.

A recent study released by the New England Journal of Medicine found that for people 65 and older an estimated 99,000 visits to the emergency room can be contributed to adverse drug events, between 2007 and 2009. Of this number half were over 80 years of age.  Two thirds of the hospitalizations were due to unintentional overdoses. The top four medications responsible for these visits are Warfarin (33%), insulin (14%) antiplatelet agents (13%) and oral hypoglycemic agents (11%).

Apparently none of these medications are considered high […]
