MEDICAL DOCTOR SPEWS FEAR OVER VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTATION

  The following 2:36 video is a perfect example of a well known licensed physician (Paul Offit) WITHOUT expertise in nutrition or vitamin supplementation selectively choosing unnamed references to promote FEAR about healthy lifestyle choices (ex vitamin and mineral supplementation.) It is entertaining to watch him maintain a serious expression as he voices the “SERIOUS […]

HOW GOOD IS MY DOCTOR?

This is the kind of question that makes many patients VERY UNCOMFORTABLE. It is often answered based on “LIKEABILITY“ rather than actual “PERFORMANCE.“ It is a question, none the less, we must begin to face with better honesty and objectivity if we want to see our country overcome these abysmal statistics! We’ve convinced ourselves we have […]

DIFFERENTIATING “PERCEIVED” ENJOYMENT FROM “REAL” ENJOYMENT

Enjoyment is defined as: “the state or process of taking pleasure in something.” . To what degree do we actually SACRIFICE enjoyment without awareness?   This is an important question because many people equate enjoyment with immediate gratification. This is one of the primary reasons our country has a growing health and debt crisis. The […]

Facing Or Denying Reality in 2017

“IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN TO ME!” These seven words are expressed and/or believed by a large percentage of the population. “Dangerous diseases” and “death” simply isn’t “REAL” to the average person whether young or middle age. SELF DENIAL is the typical approach used to “prevent” oneself from succumbing to these horrific outcomes. WHY ARE […]

FINDING ANSWERS TO HEALTH PROBLEMS BEYOND THE “PRESCRIPTION PILL”

The cost of health care has become unaffordable. We find MORE people suffering the SAME problems that have existed for decades regardless of ongoing development of newer drugs saturating TV, newspapers and magazine markets claiming to offer better options to “treat” chronic diseases. These newer drugs have produced BILLIONS in revenue, but have NOT “FIXED” […]

So many people are searching for that “unique” answer believing it’s the missing piece of the puzzle to good health and happiness. This makes us susceptible to deception as we desperately “buy in to” fallacies exposing our […]

SEX AND HEART DISEASE

I’ll bet that title will arouse some attention! Well, after hearing for the umpteenth time, “if you suffer from heart disease, always check with your doctor to make sure it’s safe to have sex,” I thought I’d share my perspective. First, checking with your doctor IS NOT THE SAME THING AS HAVING SEX WITH YOUR […]

DEATH AND DOCTORS: MEDIA TRUTH vs. REALITY

Death is a REALITY that may culminate WITH or WITHOUT doctor intervention. Whether a medical doctor prescribes or withholds a prescription, the end result may be DEATH. If a surgeon chooses to perform a surgical procedure or chooses to abstain, the patient may DIE either way. If a chiropractic physician chooses to perform a spinal […]

WHAT’S YOUR PREFERENCE: LIVER DAMAGE, GI BLEEDING OR KIDNEY DAMAGE?

It’s not like I’m taking prescription medications!” This is a very typical attitude. People have no idea the dangers that over the counter medications CAUSE. It is believed since a […]

An unhealthy diet contributes […]

WHY DOES THE TRUTH TAKE 30-40 YEARS TO DISCOVER?

PCB’s PCB history is not pretty. The manufacturers and major users of PCB’s knew by the 1930s and 1940s that PCB’s caused serious health problems in their workers, and doctors advised them that other effects could be occurring as well.  But this did not stop industries from producing and using PCBs, or from releasing PCBs into […]
