Thyroid and Cholesterol Connection

Before I get into some of the confounders in my n=1 experiment I want to quickly explain the relationship between thyroid function and cholesterol (specifically lipoproteins). Most people understand that the thyroid controls our metabolism, which in fitness terms usually means how many calories we burn. What is sometimes lost is that metabolism includes ALL of the [...]

The Misaligned SuperFood: Grass-Fed Butter

We have all been trained by modern society to believe that saturated fat and cholesterol are bad for the body.  Studies have shown that both saturated fat and cholesterol in the diet actually help reduce inflammation and prevent heart disease.  Grass-fed butter has incredible health benefits and should be used as a staple part of [...]

I am an Elitist Foodie

An interesting thing has happened over the past several decades that is indicative of where our food values have gone.  When I mention to friends and colleagues that I eat grass fed beef and pasture raised chicken and pork, or wild Alaskan salmon and organic vegetables and fruits I often get strange looks.   I [...]

Do Cruciferous Vegetables Cause Hypothyroidism?

When it comes to thyroid disease, one of the questions I hear most often in my practice is on the subject of cruciferous vegetables: are they harmful to the thyroid gland? As with any controversial topic, it’s best to evaluate the potential risks and benefits. Although studies are inconclusive, I believe the vitamins, minerals, and [...]

PMS – premenstrual syndrome, otherwise known as: Psychotic Mood Shift Puffy Mid Section Perpetual Munching Spree Sound familiar?  If so, you are not alone. It is estimated that 70-90% of women of childbearing years suffer from some form of PMS for 1-2 weeks every month! 20-40% suffer severe PMS. I jest above with silly acronyms, but when [...]

Is Crossfit Too Dangerous?

As a chiropractor and a crossfitter myself, I frequently encounter this question/objection when I recommend a patient to try crossfit.  In this post I want to address the concern of whether or not crossfit is “dangerous”.  Crossfit is an exercise program which is defined as “constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity across broad [...]

Yogurt Protective Against Fast Food?

So far the research has just been done in mice, but it’s a provocative study, given that we’re learning more every day about the critical role played by the nature of the friendly bacteria living in our intestines. Well, friendly or not so friendly. Turns out that if you’re a mouse, and hell-bent on chowing down some fast [...]

Have YOU Experienced Side Effects of Statin Drugs?

One of the biggest questions facing clinical cardiology today is the decision on when to treat healthy people with statin drugs. Data from randomized clinical trials show that such treatment may be beneficial for individuals with high risk of developing cardiovascular disease. However, statins are not without side effects, therefore we have to be sure [...]

Transition Successfully to a Special Diet

Are you considering going on a special diet, such as the autoimmune Paleo diet, the SCD diet, or the GAPS diet? The thought of a major diet change can bring feelings of uncertainty and questions such as, “Can I handle this? What do I eat for breakfast?” Food powerfully impacts our emotions, and dietary changes [...]
