When You Want 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.

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...

Autism – A Worldwide Epidemic of Staggering Proportions

Increased awareness of the symptoms of autism, now commonly referred to as Autism spectrum disorder (ASD), has resulted in frequent discussions in the media and society at large. In 2017, the World Health Organization estimated that the global prevalence of autism spectrum disorder in children is about 1 in 160. Even though reported prevalence varied substantially across various studies, there is no denying that epidemiological studies conducted over the past 50 years showed increasing prevalence of ASD and a sharp geometric rise over the...

Medical Anthropologist Explores ‘Vaccine Hesitancy’ – “They’re really smart people, and they’re highly, highly educated.”

Just food for thought here - from the interview with  medical anthropologist Elisa Sobo (listen above): What are the common ideas that we have about families that don't believe in vaccination?

And that is absolutely not the case. What I found was that most of the people who are hesitating to vaccinate ... They're really smart people, and they're highly,...

Toxic: Heal Your Body from Mold Toxicity, Lyme Disease, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and Chronic Environmental Illness

Toxic, a book by Dr. Nathan MD, provides a new understanding of how chronic illnesses like ME/CFS, fibromyalgia, mold toxicity, MCS, cancer and chronic infections develop in the modern world.  In this model, disease can no longer seen as a direct cause and effect of a single pathogen, but instead is a result of multiple ongoing biochemical and environmental insults over the course of a lifetime.  The common thread linking them all together is systemic inflammation. Toxins are a vast and varied group of poisons. ...

The hidden gems in your lab work

Most MDs love to do labwork and I've had reams and reams of it done on me over the past 15 years. There have been a few gems hidden in the data, including some that were overlooked for many years by my doctors and by me. Other labwork led us down rabbit holes, leading to treatment that did me great harm. Let's talk about some of the problems with labwork today that prevent us from obtaining the full value of our labs. The trouble with labwork: Some labs put...
