Sugar Shockers & Scams

2019-06-28T14:41:09-06:00

Why You Should Make This One New Year's Resolution, and Stick to It When we think of New Year’s resolutions, we think of losing weight, exercising more, drinking less or not for a while… but more scientific research now says sugar addiction is often overlooked as the most destructive and deadly force of all. Emerging and replicated research shows people who consume lots of sugar are more than twice as likely to die from heart disease. Studies say sugar feeds cancer cells and boost the risk of Alzheimer's. Then there is sugar's link to diabetes, and the list goes on. That's [...]

Birth Control Hormones Increase Your Risk of Breast Cancer And More!

2019-02-24T16:51:16-06:00

(updated 2/2019) Enemies Towards Your Breasts Did you know that birth control pills and other contraceptive methods that use synthetic hormones, could be enemies toward your breasts? Women take birth control pills (or hormonal IUDs and shots) the world over. Providers hand out hormonal contraception scripts like M&M’s. Thus, we assume they’re safe (as do many of our providers). But research from the mid 1970’s onward is showing this is not necessarily true. On one hand, birth control pills may be helpful and protective for some conditions. For example, the use of the pill reduces the risk of certain cancers, such [...]

Pollution Causing Leaky Brain & Gut (even in kids) and 9 Steps to Protect Your Family

2019-02-18T11:46:18-06:00

Back Copy. Dr. Walter Crinnion is a leader in the field of environmental medicine. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer 21 years ago, secondary to a drug my mother was prescribed while pregnant with me (given to millions of other pregnant moms for over 36 years), part of my healing was to go get tested and detoxed at Walter’s then state-of-the art clinic. Dr. Crinnion went on to be an environmental professor at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe. He started the Crinnion Opinion (I love that name) to update docs about the environment and their patients. And [...]

Leaky gut and perhaps even leaky brains, no longer merely functional medicine concepts, are now entering mainstream research. And, of all things, what do hormones and soy have to do with this?

2019-02-01T14:02:40-06:00

I wrote Healthy Digestion the Natural Way over 13 years ago. In it were presented over 60 intestinal conditions and how to use natural methods to help deal with them. One concept presented was the leaky gut syndrome. At that time, if a patient mentioned that they might have a leaky gut to their doctors, they got the raised eyebrow “aren’t you stupid” reaction. Today, that shouldn’t be the case. If your doctor still reacts this way, run for the hills or put their picture on a milk carton. Even scientists at Emory University are getting in on understanding leaky gut [...]
