When you need much more than a second opinion!

What your MD doesn't know matters. If you're no longer vibrantly healthy then your lifestyle has been limited in some or many ways. Maybe, you've been to your doctor or many doctors and it hasn't helped. In fact, maybe you got worse. Or maybe you just want to be sure your immune system has got your back. If this is you or someone you love, you're in a situation where what your MD doesn't know, really matters. If you want to recover your health, you need to know what your MD doesn't. If you want the tools to protect yourself from novel viruses and the growing threats of chronic infections in the increasingly toxic world around us, you need real gurus, not just an average MD. That's our mission, to connect you with leaders that know what matters to you and your good health. Statistically speaking, your average...

Book Review: The Angel and the Assassin – The Tiny Brain Cell That Changed The Course Of Medicine

For far too many people, depression and chronic illness go together like peanut butter and jelly.  Chronic illness is hard.  And, we are too often told by medical professionals, family, and friends alike, it must just be all in our heads. It’s just stress, right?  But what if the symptoms of depression, anxiety, and brain fog weren’t just a “normal” psychological reaction to illness, but instead came about as a result of real, physical changes to a specific type...

Does Coronavirus have a soft “underbelly” leaving it vulnerable to a simple treatment?

As I write this, the world is in a state of panic over non-stop news reports and government lock downs across the globe over the spreading COVID-19 disease, caused by a “novel” strain of coronavirus (now termed SARS-CoV-2). Tragically, what the news reports fail to convey is that you have the means to protect yourself and your loved ones with a “novel” treatment one can do at home. First, the disease. SARS-CoV-2 stands for severe acute respiratory syndrome. It...

Polyvagal Theory…Not-the-Disney-Kind of Frozen!

Many doctors are baffled by how to successfully treat chronic illnesses in their practice.  The conventional medical system typically offers only one strategy – treating symptoms with targeted drugs to (supposedly) relieve them – without ever getting at the root cause of the illness.  The Polyvagal Theory proposes a novel framework for chronic illness which can serve to improve those treatment efforts through an understanding of what caused the symptoms to occur in the first place.  Broadly, it explains how many different kinds of...

Understanding Diet & Lifestyle Risk Factors in Breast Cancer

The various risk factors that could be responsible for the development of breast cancer in women including ethnicity, age, obesity, pregnancy, genetic mutation and estrogen metabolism, were discussed thoroughly in the previous article “Breast Cancer”.   The possibility that environmental exposures and lifestyle choices may actually play decisive, influential roles in the pathogenesis of breast cancer warrants further exploration.  A marked sixfold difference in breast cancer incidence between Asia and the West has been well documented since the mid-1960’s.  However, this gap has been observed to be...

How Deiodinase Enzymes Control Thyroid Hormone Levels at a Cellular Level

Metabolism is largely dependent on adequate levels of thyroid hormone to create the energy needed by the body to carry out vital functions.  Insufficient amounts of thyroid hormone can have broad, non-specific but wide-ranging effects.  Such common symptoms of fatigue, brain fog, and weight gain are often associated with hypothyroidism, a condition where not enough thyroid hormone is produced to meet the metabolic needs of the body. Upon suspicion of low thyroid function, a conventional endocrinologist will typically order a laboratory blood test to measure...

Breast Cancer Statistics

Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women worldwide. Approximately 1 in 8 women have a lifetime risk of developing breast cancer.  There were over 2 million new cases of breast cancer in 2018. The top countries with the highest rates of breast cancer in 2018 were Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands and metropolitan France.  Belgium topped the list with an age-standardized rate of 113.2 cases per 100,000. The U.S.A ranked at 22, with 84.9 new cases per 100,000.  It is estimated that 268,600 new...

Root Canal Cover Up

Do you have an immune related or degenerative disease such as hashimoto's thyroiditis, uveitis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and so on? The source the problem may be in your teeth or jaw. Root Canal Cover Up by George E. Meinig summarizes the exhaustive research done by Dr. Weston Price documenting this connection. Dr. Weston Price discovered through extensive research that germs from tooth decay migrate systemically throughout the body via the bloodstream and infect the heart, kidneys, joints, nervous system, brain, eyes and in fact any organ, gland or...

Lung Cancer Statistics

Lung cancer is currently the most common cancer worldwide. In most countries, lung cancer is also the most malignant form of tumor with the lowest survival rates. As of 2018, in most countries worldwide, lung cancer is the primary cancer-related cause of death. A staggering 1.8 million deaths from lung cancer in both sexes combined were recorded in 2018 globally. In the USA lung cancer mortality peaked at 159,292 in 2005 but has since decreased by 6.5% to 148,945 in 2016.  The five-year survival rate...

Childhood Asthma – Turning the American Dream into an American Nightmare

Asthma is one of the most common chronic illnesses in the United States, affecting six million children under the age of 18, about 8% of this population. As with other chronic disease, it is a burden distributed unevenly, falling disproportionately on poor children and children of color. For example, kids in low-income families suffer asthma rates almost 1.5 times greater than the national rate. Black and Native American children also experience asthma at well above national percentages. And, among Hispanics, Puerto Ricans are most likely...
