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.

​A Kinder Option

The use of stem cells contributes to approximately 5-7% of the final esthetic results of the Novadermy procedure.

Cholesterol is a blood fat which is the prime building block component to make...

Body Composition

All experts agree that obesity, even being overweight, contributes heavily to all degenerative disease.

Although attempts to lose weight are common in the...

Detecting Prostate Cancer

Question: I have a biofeedback client with a huge prostate gland who is told he needs to go through a biopsy. He is scared to death. I told him about the AMAS test to detect early cancer without surgery. Is there anything else he should do? He is on medication for the enlarged prostate.

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.

Everything in Moderation

"Everything in Moderation" - Is this a good nutritional habit? What common food ingredients are truly safe to eat "in moderation"? What are the side effects? And when can we really allow ourselves to eat in moderation?

Female Conditions

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...

F.H. from New York

I have been significantly overweight most of my adult life and at one time or another tried just about every diet out there. On some of them, I would lose 20 pounds or so and then it would be too hard to keep up the diet. This all changed less than months ago, when I began to eat mostly raw - vegan foods, with Dr. T's encouragement. The difference this time is that this is not a diet; it is a...

Fingernails

Disorders That Show Up in the Nails Nail changes may signify a number of disorders elsewhere in the body. These changes may indicate illness even before the rest of the body does. The following nutritional/health problems can be indicated by the following:

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...

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?

Gold Standards

Many times during the last three years, people have expressed concerns about the cleanliness of restaurant food in general and about what Ecopolitan is doing about it in particular. So here's the scoop:

Gout

Gout is a type of arthritis that occurs when too much uric acid builds up in the body, causing crystals to form in joints and joints to become inflamed. It can be hereditary or the result of another condition. Gout usually affects men over 40 with a family history of gout, but it can occur at any time and also affects women, especially after menopause. Excessive intake of food and alcohol,...

Headache: Vascular / Migraine

Headaches from vascular disturbance. There are several types of vascular headaches: Migraine: Periodic throbbing headaches. The prodrome seems to be due to a vasoconstriction of the cerebral blood vessels (or the vessels leading into the brain), while the headache itself seems to be due to a vasodilation of the blood vessels with subsequent congestion of tissues; seen more often in women...

Health Effects of Radio Waves and Microwaves

Just as some people in the same work environment are more resilient to airborne pollution exposures than others, some people don't experience the symptoms associated with electrical pollution as much as others. However, long-term exposure that does not lead to immediate symptoms can still result in cumulative physiological effects that may ultimately cause serious disease. Every person is...

Healthy Restaurant - Food Poisoning Symptoms?

Question: I just wanted to let you know... I ate at your healthy restaurant last night. I had the "RawVioli," which was delicious. I was, in fact, very impressed. However, shortly thereafter I experienced what seems suspiciously like food poisoning symptoms. Maybe my stomach simply couldn't handle all that raw-ness, but the symptoms conform to my past experiences with food poisoning.

Hepatitis

Inflammation of the liver characterized by patchy or generalized hepatocellular necrosis There are 4 major kinds of hepatitis: type A, type B, type D, and type non-A, non-B.

Question: I listened to the "truth" series and learned so much that helped me really understand what my body needed to be healthy.  You really dispelled some important myths for me.  It was a real relief to know I didn't need as much protein as I'd been taught.  Everything you said helped me understand why I felt worse when I was eating the way Dr. Perricone...

Kathleen Moulton (March 2013 Community Tour)

What a "TOP NOTCH" group of people in the 2013 trek!

Mary-Frances White (Documentarian, March 2013 Trek)

The trek was absolutley the hardest thing I have ever done in my life thus far-but it was worth every strain and bead of sweat. I learned things about myself and the world that I feel I wouldn't have learned if I hadn't done this trip. As for the country of Nepal and its people, it is a place one must experience and the people take the experience higher in my mind as they are very open and...

Medical Laborarory Tests and Health Screens

Read about advanced medical laboratory tests and health screens you can order. The lab tests help to detect functional changes in the body. Those changes indicate health challenges which must be treated for the body to remain in good health. Functional lab tests allow common conditions to be detected five years in advance, when there is still a chance to treat them with nutritional medicine.

Milk and "Strong Bones"

During many of my lectures here and abroad about the detriment of society's obsessive consumption of dairy products, I noticed that my audiences seemed amenable enough to digesting the scientifically proven facts regarding the close association between milk products and many kinds of cancer, asthma, infections, allergies, auto-immune disease, inflammation, arthritis, weight gain, many...

Multiple Sclerosis

Nearly 350,000 Americans are affected by one of medicine's most misunderstood diseases, multiple sclerosis. Although there is no known cure, alternative medicine has recognized a number of contributing factors. Often, the early detection and identification of underlying causes combined with strict dietary and life-style guidelines can stabilize or reverse the symptoms.

Natural Mole Removal

As the plane soared through the beauteous expanse frosting the tips of the mighty Himalayas and then glided across the towering Kathmandu valley so crowded with metallic and candy-colored structures and girdled by a sea of cascading terraces, I remained unaware that the theme for the rest of the journey had already been put in place - immensity.
