  • Chronic Inflammation

    April 15, 2019

    Perhaps you have been in my office when I give the statistics for statins:  for every 100 people given a statin, it helps one person live longer, 30-40 people are hurt from the side effects and the others are just taking the drug without benefit.  

    Or perhaps you have heard me say that 250,000 people a year go on kidney dialysis because of taking over the counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatories.   

    And you may know that many people die every year from taking pharmaceutical drugs the way they are instructed to take them.  

    But did you know that more people die every year from eating junk food than they do from taking drugs?  Here is an article about how our food is responsible for causing the chronic inflammation.  Let’s change health care by eating real food.  What a concept.

  • Whistle Blower

    March 4, 2019 You have heard the saying, “where there is smoke, there is fire.”  And, from experience, we know that is often the truth.   In this day and age of whistle-blowers, we sometimes find out what was meant to be kept secret. There is always a reason. If you have wondered about autism, I have an ... read more

    February 5, 2019 Everyone has heard about the huge amount of plastics that fil our oceans and how that affects the fish and the ecosystem.  But did you know that they are now finding plastic in humans?  It is true and as you might guess it is an insult to our health.  The body wasn’t made to ... read more
  • Nails

    January 22, 2019 We have a good deal of attention focused on our nails these days. Nails become more of a health issue as we get older and especially if a person is diabetic.   As people get older and are limited in bending and reaching their toes, the nails become more problematic.  Toenails are often very ... read more
