Guns & Anger: Is hormone disruption part of America’s problem?


American society is ill with anger and violence. Three hundred people are assaulted by guns daily, and 100 across the U.S. die from these wounds each day.

Everyone wants a safer America. That’s not a controversy; it’s a consensus. Americans dying from gunshot wounds in schools, at concerts, in churches, or in movie theaters affects all of us, not just those of us who are trying to help you lead a healthy life. Health includes [...]

Food Rules Mood


Food is a necessity of life. It keeps us alive. It sustains us. It’s pleasure you can receive without the muss and fuss of another human. But food also has some shadowy slopes. In fact food can sometimes be downright dangerous. Food can create a filter—good or bad—through which you perceive your world. Your choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and even your portion sizes, can make or break your mood. For example, your menu choices and amounts can contribute to calm and contentment or to anxiety and debilitating depression. Food is powerful. Appreciation of the relationship between food and mood [...]

A web of evidence for a vicious circle of fat. 15 Sophisticated & Effective Steps to Break this Cycle.


Life often manifests as circles. One thing leading to another. Who would have thought that there might be a circle surrounding mindfulness, brain size, appetite regulation, and belly fat? But there is. Let me present a web of scientific evidence that shows that “mindfulness” plays a significant role in being able to control the portion size of what you choose to eat. More mindfulness, less belly fat. The opposite also holds true. More fat, less mindfulness (not in all, but in many). The bigger the belly fat, the smaller the brain volume (even in children); less mindful awareness, due to the [...]

Dangerous vs. Safe Ways to Take Nutraceuticals – with Dr. David Brownstein (#71)


    People often believe that just because certain nutrients are healthy, that the more we take the healthier we will be. But this is not necessarily the case. In fact, taking too many supplements, or the wrong combinations or in the wrong timing, can work against your health efforts. For all the money you are spending and the effort you are putting into trying to be healthier, you can actually be making yourself sicker. Taking supplements safely and effectively is a highly misunderstood nutritional art and science. For example, there are acidic vs. alkaline supplements. How you take them, even [...]

Get at Your Root Cause To Finally & Fully Get Well (#69)


  There are many good things about medicine, and many things not so good. If you need an emergency room, or a life-saving surgery, or a new hip or your cataracts removed, wow, medicine is miraculous. But if you have a chronic illness like migraines, heart disease, autoimmune diseases like Rheumatoid arthritis or Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Fatigue, cognitive decline and the list goes on and on, medicine mostly offers you meds and more meds and more meds. And it convinces you of a reality of ‘learned helplessness’— that you have a disease that will never go away and your answer is [...]
