How Pregnancy Can Trigger Hashimoto’s Hypothyroidism and Other Autoimmune Diseases

When pregnancy brings on hypothyroid symptoms, it’s generally because normal immune shifts during pregnancy can trigger an autoimmune disease such as Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism, depending on genetics and other predisposing factors. The immune system can be looked as having two primary roles, one that reacts immediately to an invader (such as pus surrounding a splinter), and one that reacts later […]

Autoimmune Repair Program at a Glance

People always ask me what is the quickest, most effective way to reverse an autoimmune condition. I have outlined the path that works the fastest most of the time. This is an overview that could make a tremendous difference in your health, but it comes with the disclaimer that there is a great deal of […]

A Doctor’s Top Four Reasons to Eat Organic

Our great-great-grandparents subsisted on a completely organic diet. Modern or conventional  farming methods that involve the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides simply did not exist back then. Over the last century, our diet and farming practices have changed significantly, however our bodies and our genetics have not. You can’t […]

You Actually Can Skip Breakfast

Intermittent fasting (IF) is a bit of a buzz word among those interested in the wisest way to eat to optimize health and performance. IF seems to allow gentle calorie restriction without its usual problems of metabolic downregulation and hormone imbalance. A bit of calorie restriction without those problems can help with weight normalizing and […]

Two Medical Journals – Two Different Stories

A few months ago, a debate on the use of statins (cholesterol-lowering drugs) in healthy individuals, and the risks of side effects associated with such therapy reached the headlines of many news media. One of the points raised was that doctors can inflict harm to their patients by exaggerating potential adverse effects of statin drugs. This might lead to […]

Paleo Cooking Sous Vide Style: Is It Safe?

Recently, a blog reader wrote in to ask my opinion on implementing sous vide cooking to prepare Paleo style food. Sous vide is a method of cooking food sealed in airtight plastic bags in a water bath or in a temperature-controlled steam environment for longer than normal cooking times. The intention is to cook the item […]

The Problem with Allopathic Treatment of Hypothyroidism

The problem with most allopathic treatment of hypothyroidism is that the allopathic doctor sees lab results that show a high TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone, usually the only thyroid test MDs order) and reflexly prescribes levothyroxine, which is synthetic T4 (thyroxine). This approach may eventually result in pretty lab values, but often the person still feels […]

8 Foods That Aren’t As Healthy As You Think

The food industry is a juggernaut trillion-dollar industry that spends $4.6 billion on marketing in the United States. There has been a relative tipping point in our society, with an increasing number of people looking for healthier choices. Because of this healthy cultural shift, the health food industry has grown astronomically over the past few years. To capitalize on the […]

Want to Be a Nutritionist?

Every day I get several email requests from people for information about how and why I became a certified nutrition consultant. (You can read my story here.) Because I get so many of these requests, I did a podcast with helpful information for those considering a career change or a course of study in nutrition. You […]

The Reason We’re So Unhealthy: Choices

Sure sure, lifespans are longer but humans are pretty darn unhealthy right now and honestly I think it all boils down to one thing, and that is unhealthy choices.  Which sounds pretty much like a no-brainer, right? But here’s the thing – it’s not that we are newly weak willed and our ancestors would have […]
