…BUT THE HARVARD STUDY SAYS IT’S TRUE…
As a doctor that believes in research and well designed studies, I have found a majority of research incidentally omits or intentionally excludes factors resulting in biased and/or inaccurate outcomes. Yes, this includes the esteemed “Harvard Studies.” When it comes to achieving optimal (or simply better quality health,) research will never discover the ONE solution […]
Honesty In Marketing Pharmaceuticals On TV
A 4 minute read + (2) YouTube commercials totaling 2 minutes and 40 seconds = 6:40 minutes. It’s up to you to decide if your health is or isn’t worth investing 6 minutes and 40 seconds of your time. This post is using the pharmaceutical drug XARELTO as an example. It is important to understand […]
THE ONGOING SEARCH FOR “CURES”
In America, we tend to approach the concept of “health” from a “disease” perspective. We think in terms of health “crises,” health “maladies” (“conditions,”) health “compromises,” etc… The reason we view health from this perspective is because we don’t typically think about our health until something goes wrong. Quite frequently, this is how we approach […]
Do You Contribute To Discovering The CURE For Breast Cancer?
The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation (later known as Susan G. Komen for the Cure) has become the largest and most well known breast cancer organization in the United States: It was started by Susan G Komen’s sister (Nancy Goodman Brinker) in 1982. We want to believe that tragedies like Susan’s story of breast […]
THERE IS NO WAR ON CANCER
As much as we’d like to believe our health care system is vehemently using every available resource to combat cancer in its goal to discover a CURE, the existing evidence contradicts this finding. The following quoted paragraphs come from Kaiser Health News (links provided if you choose to read the articles in their entirety.) KAISER […]
IS IT EDUCATION OR FEAR MONGERING?
Whether you’re a physician or a consumer/patient, it is important to be OBJECTIVE when determining whether an advertisement like the one above is designed to educate and protect us or create FEAR in order to gain PATIENT COMPLIANCE while improving the health care system’s revenue flow. Let’s OBJECTIVELY use government sources to cite the scientific […]
THE HEALTH BENEFIT OF CONTROVERSY AND THINKING
Although many people choose to avoid disagreement especially over controversial topics, their is a HEALTH sacrifice one makes in following this path. Good health is a subject that incorporates MANY different aspects of living. Most people view “good health” as the absence of disease. One only needs to look at the most recent unfortunate diagnosis […]
CNN, MSNBC, FOX, etc… WHY WON’T YOU SHARE THESE HEALTH FINDINGS?
As the battlegrounds are drawn in the sand with an ongoing tug of war over the vaccine efficacy/safety issue, I stand on the sidelines marveling at the lack of concern by those most affected by its outcome. The TRUTH doesn’t seem to matter because the population at large doesn’t seem to care. As long as […]
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 […]
CHILDHOOD DISEASES: WORDS WITHOUT ACTIONS
How often do we hear statements like: . “I want my child to have a better life than I had growing up.” . OR “Our children are our future.” . We’d like to believe our heartfelt sentiments are more than just words, but do our ACTIONS reflect these emotions? . TYPE 1 AND TYPE 2 […]
COLON CANCER ON THE RISE FOR GEN “X” AND MILLENNIALS: WHY ARE DOCTOR’S SO SHOCKED?
Miami (AFP) – “Rates of colon and rectal cancer are rising sharply among young and middle-aged adults in the United States but doctors have yet to pinpoint why, researchers said Tuesday.” The report in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute found that Generation X and millennials face anywhere from twice to four times […]
DECEPTION WITHOUT REMORSE
This post is 1075 words. If you care about your health, I would encourage you to take the time to read it. The average consumer bases their health treatments ENTIRELY on their family physician’s recommendations. Whether these doctors are medical physicians, chiropractic physicians, naturopathic physicians or osteopathic physicians their is GOOD REASON to question the […]
I CARE; DO YOU?
THIS ARTICLE IS 900 WORDS. IF YOU CAN MAKE THE TIME PLEASE READ IT IN ITS ENTIRETY. THANK YOU. It is difficult to write an article about vaccinations without the reader questioning the writer’s motives. Therefore, rather than make GENERALIZATIONS about ALL VACCINES by handpicking the facts that support biased conclusions, I am going to […]
THANK YOU FOR REMAINING UNINFORMED REGARDING YOUR CHILD’S PARTICIPATION IN MEDICAL LAB TESTING. . . . Sincerely, THE MEDICAL INDUSTRY & GOVERNMENT

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” […]
DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE “FOOD PYRAMID” UNDERWENT BEFORE ITS 1992 RELEASE?
If learning about healthy choices and meal combinations isn’t difficult enough, how about adding political agendas to the confusion and see where the results take us! Back in the early ‘80s, Luise Light was the leader of a group of top-level nutritionists with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) who developed the eating guide […]
TURNING A BLIND EYE AWAY FROM INTEGRITY
Part of the Hippocratic Oath is to SWEAR to NEVER DO HARM to a patient. Obviously, this refers to intentional harm. What if, however, there are questions whether a procedure MAY cause harm to a patient. The moral and ethical answer is to GET ANSWERS BEFORE proceeding with these treatments. I pose to the reader […]
CAN TREATING ALZHEIMER’S WITH FLOWERS PROVIDE COMPARABLE RESULTS TO PRESCRIPTION DRUGS?
Be honest, you saw the title and SMIRKED! Am I right? If I was in your shoes, I probably would have smirked too! In reality, many of the medicinal products we’re prescribed by our doctors are synthetic chemicals designed to COPY the physiological benefits naturally produced by plants . Since the law doesn’t permit the […]
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 […]
HEALTHY CHOICES: AN OXYMORON
Everyone knows that exercising and consuming quality foods are key components necessary for healthy living. Why then do professionals who study exercise and nutrition disagree on which exercises and which foods contribute to healthy outcomes? The following are some examples. FOODS STATEMENT: LEGUMES and GRAINS are healthy plant foods and should account for a significant […]
