Mom Was a Prophet

2017-10-03T16:57:20+00:00 October 10th, 2017|Blog|

She wasn't alone, though, because many people of her generation (early to mid-20th century) bore a deep understanding of what it really meant to be healthy. Sadly, they also lived during times when medicine was changing from the old fashioned holistic approach to the modern beliefs about drugs, surgery, and radiation – thank you AMA [...]

Maybe It’s NOT All About the Lactose

2017-08-16T21:07:58+00:00 August 16th, 2017|Blog|

One description of Lactose Intolerance is, “The inability to fully digest sugar (lactose) in dairy products.” One US government website reports, “Approximately 65 percent of the human population has a reduced ability to digest lactose after infancy..” Some of the symptoms are diarrhea, gas and bloating after consuming dairy products. It’s usually harmless, but its [...]

Dry Eyes

  QUESTION: Larry, I am wondering if you have a solution for my wife's dry eyes. She currently takes the prescription Restasis which is very [unaffordable]. I was reading that there was a study that a solution with Vitamin A has just as much success as the ingredient in Restasis. Do you have (recommend) anything [...]

NASTINESS – A Good Catchall Word for All That Ails Us.

2017-07-10T17:39:36+00:00 July 10th, 2017|Blog|

There seems to be a recurring theme describing our world today - nastiness. That’s my chosen word for of all the hostilities, war, conflicts, differences of opinions, poor sportsmanship, strong opinions, abusive and insulting language, bigotry, racism, religious persecution, and so on. The nasty list is long and getting longer by the minute. Perhaps it's [...]

Fluoride is a toxic material that is responsible for a multitude of serious health conditions, ranging from fluorosis to serious bone degeneration. Fluorosis is a disturbance of dental enamel caused by excessive exposure to [...]

Black Seed?

2017-04-27T20:40:54+00:00 April 26th, 2017|Blog|

I received a call asking what I thought about black seed (aka, black cumin, black caraway, black sesame, black onion seed, or Roman coriander). The official name is Nigella Sativa and it has a long history of use in ancient (traditional) systems of medicine, including Ayurveda and Siddha and is credited with many healing qualities. [...]

An alternative to Statins?

2017-02-27T19:33:44+00:00 February 27th, 2017|Blog|

Someone recently wrote in and asked if I could recommend something other than statin drugs to lower cholesterol. The quick and dirty response is “NO”, but that’s certainly too blunt. The primary question is actually about the necessity for statin drugs in the first place. After years of reading research papers - ad nauseum - [...]

Rather than writing about a specific issue that lands on either side of the argument, I have written out some simple steps to follow if you or a dependent are on the receiving end of a vaccine. If the vaccination is mandatory; Observe and document as much as possible [...]

The Pineapple and The Mucus

2017-01-17T16:26:57+00:00 January 17th, 2017|Blog|

This is Gross - but Read it Anyhow. Glands in the lining of our throat, sinuses, and intestinal tract produce mucus, a thick, wet substance that helps trap and destroy foreign invaders, like bacteria and dust particles before they cause infection. We don’t normally notice it because it mixes with saliva, drips harmlessly down the [...]

LYME Prevention Makes Sense?

2017-01-04T21:09:11+00:00 January 4th, 2017|Blog|

Ironic isn’t it? A single elevated PSA value and the medical system goes into a tailspin of immediate treatment and surgery. A tick bite that might cause decades of misery could be ignored “until that bulls eye rash” occurs - even by people who ought to understand the serious consequences. Lyme disease is a bacterial [...]
