Garlic Health: Is Garlic a Villain or Benefactor?
Many of my patients and audience members at lectures have asked me the above-titled question using different verbiages on different occasions. Why ask about garlic, the food we love to spice our meals with so often, despite the attendant aroma?
A few days ago I have returned from a trekking trip to Nepal that was guided by Dr. Adiel Tel-Oren (“Dr. T”). Among the mostly-American group members, there were two other Israelis, Shai and Anna, who returned at the same time and will share their own experience of this trip. I will not provide all the details of the trip at this time, nor will I copy everything that I...
Foraging, Herbology, and Mangoes, it must be Spring!
When I was in Israel (the Galilee) and Italy (Tuscany) a few weeks ago, I went foraging a bit (see those pictures and other foraging pictures in the blog). Even in Victoria, BC last week I found some time with my hosts to eat some wild plants (but not in Seattle, Olympia area, and Portland - I wish there was more time!). Each country and State with its own micro-climate supports its own...
Epigenetics, Detoxification, and You
I am back from an arduous lecture-and-patients tour of Israel and Italy! After seeing nutritional and skin-lesion patients in the Tel Aviv area, I traveled a bit north to lecture at an environmental health conference, focusing on the connection between our genetics and susceptibility to illness as a result of environmental, nutritional, hormonal, and emotional influences.
On Tour and On TV!
I just came back from a snowy Montreal where I gave 2 lectures; "7 Foods to Avoid to Allow for Meaningful Detoxification " and "An Introduction to the Functional and Nutritional Treatments for Behavioral and Developmental Disorders (Autism Spectrum, PDD, ADD, ADHD)." I also provided consultations and skin treatments, as I do in so many other locations. It was wonderfully...
Ankylosis Spondylitis is defined as a chronic and generally progressive inflammatory arthritic disease affecting the spinal joints and adjacent connective tissues. Also called "Marie Strumpell Disease." This appears to be a disease mainly of young men aged 10-30 years old. It seems to have a genetic component, as it is seen in male relatives and especially in patients with...

The Roof of Africa & Beyond
An Account of Dr. Tel-Oren's Adventures in Tanzania, Africa: Safari, Nutritional Research, and Climbing Kilimanjaro Drug-Free and Altitude Sickness-Free (Transcribed from Dr. T's Tuesday Lecture at Ecopolitan in February 2010).
Amenorrhea Absence of menstruation. Amenorrhea may be primary (the girl has never begun her periods) or secondary (the woman had her periods once and then stopped having them). Physiologic amenorrhea is the lack of menses before menarche, during pregnancy and early lactation, and after menopause (all considered normal). All other causes of amenorrhea are pathologic. Causes of Primary...
Way Too Much Protein
Many of you may have heard Dr. T talk about protein and how too much protein can be compromising your health. He uses the analogy that protein is dirty fuel and it is like running it through your engine without a catalytic converter. There are many reasons to not over consume on protein and I would like to comment and share additional reason to the rhyme.
Grace (March 2013 Trek)
The trip was definitely a once in a life time experience. I was particularly impressed with the logistics and the sustainability of the Everest Learning Center and other ongoing projects in support of the Nepalese children. Nothing like seeing men conducting business and getting things accomplished on the side of a mountain top with snow capped mountains in the background. Dr. T is doing a great...
Brent and Chris - Testimonial (2005 Trek)
My wife and I have traveled extensively and have lived overseas. However, the trek to CCODER villages was an experience of a lifetime. Entering the first village was a deeply moving experience for me. I was overcome with emotion as the villagers greeted us and welcomed us to their community. They were obviously very honored and appreciative that we had made the effort to come and visit them and...
