Nitrate/Nitrite Shock and Mayonnaise

I was astonished to read Chris Kresser’s excellent blog post The Myth about Nitrates and Nitrites. Everyone knows that Nitrites/Nitrates are potentially carcinogenic. When I allowed my children to eat hot dogs or lunch meats that contained them, I felt worried. Now, according to peer reviewed studies, not only are they not harmful, but may […]

Lyme Disease

I’ve treated many people with Lyme disease over the years, and I consider myself a Lyme-literate physician. I’ve seen lots of people who’ve suffered greatly from this illness, people who have seen many practitioners, and who have tried everything from multiple, high-dose, long-term antibiotic regimens to complex herbal protocols, sometimes exhausting their bank accounts without […]

Myths About Anxiety and the People Who Have It

Today is personal.  I have experienced chronic anxiety since I was 14 years old.  I didn’t know it until many years later when a physician mentioned it to me in the emergency room where I went for chest pain. The physician came in with all my test results and a gentle smile.  “You’re going to be ok.  I think […]

5 Causes and 5 Solutions for High Blood Pressure

Your blood pressure has measured high, and your health care provider suggests that you have “essential hypertension”, which must be treated. Actually, your provider may not know of all the other conditions that can lead to high blood pressure, and which can be corrected by simple self-care measures. The diagnosis of high blood pressure requires […]

The Pre-Vomit/Post-Speech Grace Period

The bout: Fat loss. Contenders: You vs. your body fat Body fat throws a straight left to the face, right uppercut, jabs you into a corner, and throws a hefty overhand right. You’ve got your fists up, your chin down, you’re bobbing and weaving, just like you were taught, and your opponent is tiring himself […]

Don’t Be an Ass

We’ve all met that person. He wouldn’t shut up at dinner, had an answer for everything, and laughed at your “ignorant” question or point of view. Despite trying to tolerate him, you couldn’t wait until he left the room so you could denounce his rhetoric with his other verbally assassinated victims that surround you. He […]

A Protein Powder Primer: Is Protein Powder Detrimental?

Do you use protein powders in your smoothies or drinks? It’s a pretty hotly contested topic among nutritionists and foodies. Many feel that protein powder isn’t a real food, having been processed and powderized. Most protein powders out there contain unsavory fake ingredients like soy protein isolate or non-whole-foods like egg whites or whey protein […]

What the Gut?

Naturopaths and holistic healers have always focused on gut health as the gateway to healing. But as a physician not specialized in gastroenterology, my involvement with gut health and ecology used to consist of Malox and Immodium for the side effects of psychotropics. These days, though, it’s a near obsession. Some enlightened practitioners would argue […]

Can Meat Make You Happy?

Meat makes me a better person. I can say that unequivocally on the basis that not having meat makes me feral. Not just any flesh. Red meat. Preferably lamb chops. They seem to restore balance and order to my universe. Although given a lack of coffee, coconut, and chocolate all tend to have the same […]
