"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?

Holistic Science: Effective or Placebo Effect?

Some of my patients occasionally speak with their friends who happen to be allopathic doctors (orthodox medical-industrial doctors) about their medical care for chronic medical conditions (with which they had no good results until using functional medicine). These medical friends often claim in response that there is "no science" in the practice of non-allopathic health practitioners and...

Common Cold

The common cold is an upper respiratory infection caused by a virus. In the United States, adults have between 3 and 6 colds a year, and children have as many as 8 to 10.

Depression

Depression is a major problem in the United States. Nearly 15 million Americans will suffer true clinical depression each year. Depression is also a big business for drug companies, especially for the maker of Prozac-Eli Lilly and Company. The good news is that there are natural measures to deal with depression that are both safer and more effective.

Detoxification

Low-level, long-term exposure to toxins such as heavy metals (e.g. lead, mercury, PSP, and cadmium), pesticides, industrial  compounds, and pollutants is associated with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS), fibromyalgia (FM), neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease and atherosclerosis as well as many types of cancers. Common signs and...

Ear Dysfunction - Infection (Otitis Media)

Acute otitis media is a viral or bacterial infection of the middle ear, usually secondary to a URI. It is most common in children six to 36 months old and then again at 4-7 years old.

Ear Dysfunction - Meniere's Syndrome / Tinnitus

The disease was first diagnosed in 1861 by Prosper Meniere. Meniere's syndrome is an illness that afflicts more than seven million Americans, according to the Journal of American Medical Association (July 25, 1990). It is generally believed to be caused by a buildup of fluid in the inner ear. The resulting pressure can manifest the following list of symptoms: ringing or buzzing in the ears...

Enuresis (Bed-Wetting)

Loss of control of the bladder by day, by night, or both. Not limited to young children. Many adolescents and adults are afflicted in this way, either constantly or in times of stress or anxiety. Dr. John W. Gerard, Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Saskatchewan, presents evidence that bedwetting is sometimes the result of an allergy. "The prime problem is that the bedwetting...

Eye Conditions

Cataracts   Cataracts are clumps of protein that collect on the lens of an eye and interfere with vision. Normally, light passes through the lens (the clear tissue behind the pupil) and focuses on the retina. The retina is the light-sensitive layer of the eye that sends visual signals to the brain. A cataract occurs when the normally clear lens becomes cloudy. Most cataracts develop slowly...

Facet Syndrome

Facet syndrome is used to describe chronic or acute inflammation of the articular facet joints which guide vertebral motion. These joints are lined by cartilage and surrounded by capsular ligaments which are richly innervated by pain fibers.

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).

All other causes of amenorrhea are pathologic.   Causes of Primary...

B vitamins), anemia (pernicious or iron deficiency) and a multitude of skin diseases (aphthous lesions, pemphigus, erythema multiform, lichen planus, etc.). Local problems that may give rise to...

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: Nonvascular

Headache without vascular cause. The most commonly diagnosed condition in the United States with 70% of these caused by muscle tension. Causes include suboccipital muscle spasms from injury (whiplash), postural strain (caused, for example, by a computer screen angled incorrectly), pillow too large that forces flexion of the neck during rest. Usually gradual onset, but tends to persist in cyclical...

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...

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.

Influenza

Influenza, or "flu," is a common infection caused by a virus affecting the respiratory tract (like the nose and upper airways). Its symptoms are usually more severe than the common cold and are more likely to affect other parts of your body like your stomach and muscles. The flu is very contagious - spreading easily from one person to the next. While most cases run their course in...

Low Back Pain

Pain felt either in the lumbar, lumbosacral, or sacroiliac areas. Most low back pain is from degenerative joint disease in the lumbosacral region, poor posture, the beer belly, constipation, and stress-induced myospasms of the lumbosacral region. Low back pain is commonly associated with sciatica. The prognosis depends on the cause. Generally, the condition is benign and the prognosis is...

Lupus (Erythematosus)

This is a chronic, inflammatory, autoimmune (the body is attacking itself) disease that affects connective tissue (tissue  that  binds and supports various structures of the body and also includes the blood).

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.

Myofibrositis

Scar-type tissue causing restriction of tissue motion. Traumatic tearing of soft tissues or long standing muscle spasms cause production of thixotropic gel which organizes itself into collagen scar tissue. This is the body's attempt to stabilize what is perceived as injury. Three problems result from this scar formation:

Neurological Conditions

Neurological Conditions   The Interplay of Neurotransmitters & Mental States The body is the theater for emotional and cognitive states. Whether mood or mental issues express themselves through behavior or physical functioning-neurotransmitters are one group of characters at play. Memory and cognitive processes are heavily dependent on acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter...

Pain/Inflammation Management

A feeling of distress, suffering, or agony caused by stimulation of specialized nerve endings. The sensation we feel as pain is produced through a number of complex biochemical interactions. These interactions can be likened to a battle between the good guys, the body's natural pain relieving force, and the bad guys, the pain producers. When the good guys are winning the battle, we are not...

Parathyroid Conditions

Hypoparathyroidism There are four parathyroid glands, located near each of the two lobes of the thyroid gland. The parathyroids produce parathyroid hormones that regulate blood levels of calcium necessary for strong bones and teeth, nerve function, and blood clotting. Hypoparathyroidism is a rare disorder associated with insufficient production of parathyroid hormone, the inability to make a...

Parkinson's Disease

A chronic progressive CNS disorder characterized by slowness of purposeful movement, resting tremors, and muscle rigidity.  Also called "Parkinsonism" and "Paralysis Agitans" Dorland's Medical Dictionary describes the Parkinsonian complex as "neurologic disorders characterized by hypokinesia, tremors and muscular rigidity. It typically occurs late in life,...

Periodontal Disease

Gingivitis, Periodontitis, and Scorbutic Gums Periodontal disease is a scourge on our society. It accounts for more lost teeth in adulthood than any other dental problem.

Thirty-two million Americans have gum disease right now in such an advanced state...

Prostatitis (Prostatic Hypertrophy, Benign)

Restless Legs Syndrome and Leg Cramps

Leg Cramps: Nocturnal leg cramps constitute a relatively common complaint in the general practice of medicine and may be very distressing to the patient. Not only is the cause obscure and the treatment relatively unsatisfactory, but even its proper medical name, systremma (anything twisted up together), is unknown to most physicians.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

The Natural Approach Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects the entire body but especially the synovial membranes of the joints. It is a classic example of an "autoimmune disease," a condition in which the body's immune system attacks the body's own tissue. Although rheumatoid arthritis is a systemic disease, it affects primarily the joints. The...

Sciatica

A specific entity with many causes. Involves inflammation of the great sciatic nerve and presents as acute or chronic pain down the back of the leg originating in the buttock and extending to the foot. Pressure can originate in the nerve roots, as in discopathy or facet syndrome, or can be caused by the gluteal muscles or piriformis tightening over the nerve. Gluteal muscle spasm is often...

Sinusitis / Hayfever / Allergic Rhinitis

An inflammation or infection in the paranasal sinuses. The most common inciting agent of sinusitis is a viral upper respiratory infection, although bacteria, fungi, and allergic reactions may also be responsible. Any factor that creates edema of the nasal tissues resulting in obstruction and the lack of proper drainage of the area will often lead to sinus infection. As the obstruction continues,...

Skin Conditions

Acne Vulgaris   An inflammatory disease most commonly seen in teenagers. It affects areas where sebaceous glands are largest, most numerous, and most active. Mild cases consisting of few residual signs except possibly dilated pores, and the development  of the comedo, or blackhead,  may progress through more pathological  stages of ruptured sebaceous ducts, pustule formation,...

Stress

The many faces of stress Stress manifests differently depending on the individual, influencing many biological processes that begin in the brain and spread through nearly all body systems - including the adrenals, thyroid, neurotransmitter systems, digestive system, and heart. Consistent stress over long periods of time can become a serious threat to maintaining lifelong wellness as so much energy...

Ulcers (duodenal and gastric), H. Pylori

Your digestive system produces strong acids and juices that are designed to help break down the food you eat so that its components can be used to nourish the body. The lining of the healthy stomach is marvelously resistant to these juices and is not affected by their caustic nature. In ulcer patients, this defense of the stomach's lining against stomach acids has broken down somehow, so that...

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) / Bladder Infection (Cystitis)

Symptoms Urinary urgency. Urinary frequency. Painful urination. These are relatively common symptoms of a urinary tract infection (UTI), although only about half of those who acquire a UTI are symptomatic. People most prone to UTIs are women of childbearing age.

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!

Why Eat Raw Organic Plant Food?

Why Eat Raw Organic Plant Food?

What would you give for fewer colds/allergies, more energy, a slender body, a sharper mind, clear skin, better digestion, and slashed risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, gallstones, infections, and premature death?

The Occasional Junk Food

Question: Often enough, during parties or meetings, or during my travels (in and out of the airplane...), I am asked questions resembling this: "what if I have a Big Mac just once in a while? Or a Cheese Pizza once a week? Or chocolate just infrequently?"

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.

Learning How To Eat Raw

Question: Hi, I am interested in learning how to eat raw. I was wondering if you can help me find where I can sign up for some classes on how to eat raw and it's benefits? And hopefully something that's economic would be a plus!! Thank you for your help.
