MANopause – Male Hormones After 40 (#112)


  There is a documented epidemic of low testosterone (T) in males, even young males. Insufficient T is not only linked to erectile dysfunction, it is being reproducibly linked to dying prematurely (losing a few years off your life) from diverse causes, referred to as all-cause mortality. Sufficient levels of T, often higher than the lower end of most lab reference ranges, prevents a long list of serious illnesses such as cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, and Type-2 Diabetes.

Your body loves blue food. So does your vagina. Especially if you’re being treated for cervical cancer. 6 of my favorite protective blue food ideas.


Twelve thousand women a year are diagnosed with cervical cancer. It's treated with radiation. Researchers from the University-Columbia now show that blueberry extract makes the radiation work more effectively. Blueberries, it turns out, are "radio-sensitizers". Blue berry extract, when given along with radiation, make unhealthy cervical cancer cells respond better, die more, when exposed to radiation. In a joint cell study from the Des Moines University College of Osteopathic Medicine, the University of Missouri School of Medicine, and The Affiliated Hospital of Xiangnan University, in China, they found: Cervical cancer cells treated with radiation alone decreased cancer cell growth by 20%.

Pancreatic cancer hope


Dr. Burt Berkson, through years of practice and success, has designed a protocol for pancreatic cancer. Dr. Berkson is a specialist in alpha lipoic acid. He and I both authored books for Wiley and they launched at the same time. By mistake we got boxes of each others books as we both lived in New Mexico back then (my book was Healthy Digestion the Natural Way). That's how the fickle finger of fate had me find out about him. I had a friend get diagnosed and told her and her docs. But even though they had no answers for her, they [...]
