The Impact of Nutrition on the Nervous System, Part 1
June 22, 2017
Metabolic Typing, Acid/Alkaline, and the impact of nutrition on the Autonomic Nervous System. Dr. Colin Ross was so impressed with the miraculous recoveries of Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez’s cancer patients that he sought to preserve his legacy. Why is it that some people thrive on a vegetarian diet, others become weak and sick? Conversely, Paleo or ketogenic diets work great for certain individuals, while others tolerate them poorly? The late Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez addresses this conundrum in his posthumously published book, "Nutrition and the Autonomic Nervous System." The book explains the Kelly Metabolic Types which range from Sympathetic Dominant to Parasympathetic Dominant, each calling for a specific diet and supplement regimen. It turns out that most solid tumors like pancreas and colon are responsive to a primarily vegetarian raw foods diet; patients with “blood cancers” like lymphoma, leukemia and multiple myeloma tend to be supported by diets higher in animal protein. For a Sympathetic Dominant, B12 and Calcium are counter-productive, but they benefit Parasympathetic Dominants; Conversely, magnesium, and potassium are great for Sympathetic Dominants, but Parasympathetic Dominants need less of these nutrients. Kelly’s scheme was refined by Dr. Gonzalez into a remarkably successful protocol for cancer and other challenging medical conditions with the incorporation of mega-doses of pancreatic enzymes and detoxification protocols like liver flushes and coffee enemas.

“Nutritional Medicine,” Part 1
June 15, 2017
Dr. Alan Gaby, the author of "Nutritional Medicine," the most authoritative textbook ever on therapeutic applications of diet and supplements to a multitude of disease states. "Nutritional Medicine" has been 36 years in the making, and the new updated 2nd edition adds 1700 brand new study references, and is now available in a searchable electronic edition. When skeptical MD’s argue “But where are the studies?” the 19,000 research papers cited in "Nutritional Medicine" should allay their reservations. How do subclinical hypothyroidism, nutritional deficiencies, hidden food allergies, and blood sugar instability hijack health? What role for vitamin B6? Are allergy tests a good way to predict what foods you should eat? Dr. Gaby shares skepticism about mega-dosing with two popular nutrients; Is sunlight really better than vitamin D pills?

The China Study — Busted! Part 1
June 8, 2017
"The China Study" by Professor T. Colin Campbell is cited by many vegans as the rationale for their avoidance of animal protein. Ken Aung, an expert in medical data analytics, uncovers deep flaws in Campbell’s scientific reasoning. Why is an impressive graph linking colon cancer incidence to meat consumption misleading? What are the limitations of epidemiological (observational) studies? Ken highlights the pitfalls of misappropriated statistics: Why does correlation not necessarily mean causation? How does the “post-hoc fallacy” lead us to erroneous conclusions? Is Campbell’s demonization of dairy products based on sound science? Is he guilty of cherry-picking to buttress his pre-conceived beliefs? What’s the take-home message for confused consumers? How can we make more informed food choices amid wildly conflicting headlines? Click HERE for part 2.

Solutions to Permanently Address Back Pain, Part 1
June 6, 2017
Cathryn Jakobson Ramin, an investigative journalist, is author of “Crooked: Outwitting the Back Pain Industry and Getting on the Road to Recovery.” Herself a back pain sufferer, she chronicles her odyssey, touching on virtually every option, conventional and alternative, for back pain. She claims that “back pain care is a microcosm of everything that’s wrong with our health care system.” How have perverse incentives created a self-perpetuating back pain industry, and sustained unproven and dangerous modalities? What are the downsides of surgery? Why is “PT” (physical therapy) not always the answer to avoiding unnecessary surgery? What are the pitfalls of “minimally-invasive” or laser spinal surgery? What about spinal injections for pain? How has back pain spawned an epidemic of opiate addiction and disability? Are there rogue surgeons who game the insurance system and prey on vulnerable patients? Why might it be a mistake to get an MRI? What role does exercise play in forestalling back problems? How does prolonged sitting set the stage for back problems? It’s not all bad news: Ramin presents a wide array of possible natural, non-invasive solutions to permanently address back pain that she has personally field-tested. Click HERE for part 2.
