  I came home one day and sat down and wrote this after a patient was told by her primary care doctor that her supplements were “not necessary and was like flushing money down the toilet.” I think that this article must have crossed his desk. New York Attorney General Targets Supplements at Major Retailers   So what do we do about vitamins and supplements? Eat a balanced diet and you receive all the vitamins you need. That is what we hear from conventional medicine. The main reason supplements need to be considered is that the real world contains processed products and foods grown in mineral deficient conditions or perhaps contaminated with toxins. How many times have you seen on the label “fortified with such and such vitamins.”  It is a travesty when the natural is taken out and synthetics may be the replacement in processed food. Next, look what is done with medications. Cholesterol blood levels go up. No thought is given to suboptimal hormone levels or lack of vitamin D raising cholesterol. Cholesterol pills are thrown at numbers. The numbers look better and everyone is happy. However, the body does not necessarily function any better. Supplement philosophy can sometimes be much the same. However, there are no magic bullets fo

  • Erectile dysfunction can be an early sign of heart and vascular problems.
  • It is probably not the Viagra that causes heart problems.
  • Testosterone is essential for heart health.
  • We have methods to objectively test for these things.

Everyone knows February represents heart month. It is also associated with romantic qualities because of Valentine’s Day. Both of these issues concern the topic of this short essay. The first article is from a medical journal and represents current views of testosterone use from the cardiovascular standpoint. Remember that the organ with the most testosterone receptors in the whole body is not that little guy between our legs (for men, but this information still applies to the ladies) but the heart. Heart health is directly related to optimum testosterone levels. Testosterone is necessary for heart, blood vessel, and overall health. Cognitive function and emotions can improve with optimization of testosterone levels. So can libido and sexual function. So how is this related? Before any buildup that blocks blood flow occurs in the blood vessels, we can ident

February is Heart Month With your CENEGENICS program, you have already taken significant steps to reduce your risk for cardiovascular disease. February is HEART MONTH, and statistics show that cardiovascular disease remains the leading killer of both men and women in the United States despite significant advances in treatment and detection over the past half-century. Coronary artery disease is the name given to the process that blocks the flow in blood vessels that supply blood and oxygen to the heart muscle. If this becomes suddenly blocked it causes a heart attack. Unfortunately, the first symptom of a heart attack can be sudden-death in anywhere from 30 to 50% of patients. In other words, you may not make it to the emergency room. Electron beam tomography (EBT) is proven to be the most sensitive noninvasive test to detect and quantify build-up of plaque in the coronary arteries. It takes only minutes to perform with no special preparation, and preliminary results are available the same day as the exam. This can provide information that lets us know your relative risk of a cardiovascular event and whether you need further heart testing or not. If you look through this exam you also see that an extended EBT can be ordered to look at internal organs in the chest and abdominal cavities. What is

There are no bullet points for this essay. I will try to keep it simple but the stuff in here is good for everyone to know. First of all, I currently find myself practicing in a progressive state, and the medical marijuana law is now in effect in New York. So I certified as a medical practitioner who can provide medical marijuana for patients. Now, let me explain a little bit of the science. I don’t care how old you are. I knew some of this stuff way back when in the 60s and 70s, but I did not inhale. Okay. I will quit lying so you believe the rest of this. I was a chemistry major in college so I understand the medical aspects well on that level. And I do have my medical marijuana practitioner license. What we all have used is cannabis sativa or cannabis indica. Remember everyone wanted to smoke the “bud.” There is a reason for this. Oil is produced to protect the flower. The hotter and drier the environment, the more resin production and the more potent the marijuana. The fact that it thrives in adverse conditions makes it an excellent weed (I just had to put that in there). The dried oil or resin is known as hashish. The oil produced in the cannabis plant contains primarily a combination of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). This oil has

I saw this article on the internet today–just after I posted the article on water. Flint, Michigan is in a state of emergency after dangerous levels of lead in its drinking water were found to cause lead poisoning in scores of children.  But citizens of this Midwest city may not be the only Americans at risk. The Guardian has reportedly come across a set of documents detailing questionable water testing practices in major cities like Detroit and Philadelphia, as well as the state of Rhode Island.

  • It is not a matter of simply drinking bottled water. Look at the source. Look at what has been done to it. The Paleo concept tells us not to use processed food. Here I am talking about processed water.
  • The Paleo concept can also apply to sleep patterns and longevity in other ways.
  • Everything in water exists as a dynamic process. I hope you get the concept of the dissociation dance.
  • Optimal pH for body functions is 7.42.
  • Increased oxygenation and redox are a key for health. Hydrogen peroxide and some isolated products have shown benefit in this arena.

It is time we talked about the basics of water. We hear about alkaline water, reverse osmosis, filtered water, water of Lourdes, and who knows what else. Okay, look at the first article. Water, of course, is made up of H2O. The chemistry for this means it has two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen. These are constantly clinging together as a molecule of water and then briefly dissociating into a hydrogen atom (which has a positive charge) and a hydroxyl complex containing the oxygen and the remaining hydrogen atom (and this has a negative charge). This determines the pH or acid/base balance. Alkaline (negative) is another word for base. The number 7.0 is

Bisphenol A (BPA)—What Is It? We have all heard the word BPA. What does this really mean for our health? I will keep this short—and I hope to leave you with thoughts about how to incorporate positive changes in your lifestyle. There are two articles giving you some basics on BPA. What is BPA, and what are the concerns about BPA? is for those who like a brief summary of information. Bisphenol A is more comprehensive for those with curiosity. Let me sum it up for you (from a chemistry major in college):

  1. You want NOTHING to do with this stuff.
  2. It is all over consumer products. This is the modern world.

…in the containers we use to tote our water around. I take my food to work and since plastic is lighter than glass…hard to change. How about those receipts we touch—BPA is readily absorbed through the skin. I used to save receipts, comparing them with statements and saving them as IRS receipts, handling them over and over. Hey, I just simplified my life and rarely take receipts anymore. Looking back, I certainly wasted a lot of energy. I think I am becoming my father (good thing).

  1. BPA has estroge

The season for colds is here. Although it initially may sound a little gross, the first article gives us some useful information. Mucus has a defense purpose. The concept here is that we need to learn to survive with microbes. So production of mucus is a mechanism to get rid of the germs. I pay attention to the color of snot—this gives some direction as far as treatment, such as if antibiotics may be helpful. Many healthy foods stimulate the immune system. Glutathione is frequently mentioned and comes from sulfur-based foods. Then there is garlic (allicin is the active chemical) with its direct antimicrobial properties. Olive oil, as well as ginger, have bactericidal activity. We continue to hear about the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids in helping treat the common cold, probably by modulating the inflammatory response. From scratch chicken or beef soup with bone provides some basic nutrients for healing. Lean beef is high in zinc. Speaking of which, what about the benefit of zinc in allergies and fighting acute infection? George Eby summarizes the history of zinc and its usefulness in the common cold over the past 30 years. Observation led to trial s

Obesity rates are increasing. Statistics show that this is more so in the 45 to 64-year-old age group than in others. This is the time of life where you want to watch out. But it is Holiday Season…! If you follow certain basics in your daily lifestyle, you do not have to worry about “cheating” during the holidays. I hope the information presented will help make you more aware of aspects of your diet. Some of these things go against conventional medical wisdom. My medical school curriculum did not include any significant training in nutrition in the early 1970s. I have a daughter who is in her third year of family practice training and she has shared her similar experience with me. Most doctors do not know anything about nutrition and that can include basics. What you hear and read in the news and on the net needs to be carefully digested. Let us start with a few basics: Help, I’m Gaining Weight! This Could be Why. I have always preached against processed foods. Many of the chemicals and preservatives added adversely affect our normal metabolism. Wheat of any kind is a killer. There is no such thing as whole wheat. The gluten plays havoc with our insulin levels—and remember insulin has a chemical str
