How To Avoid China ’ s Medicine Monopoly
I want to share a shocking statistic with you… Around 80% of all the pharmaceuticals sold in America — both prescription and over-the-counter — are manufactured in China. I’m talking about drugs for Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, blood pressure and blood thinners, diuretics, aspirin, antibiotics, and a big chunk of the world’s insulin and diabetes drugs — just to name a few.1 We don’t even make penicillin anymore. The last penicillin plant in the U.S. closed its doors in 2004. Americans who rely on medicine are now almost entirely at the mercy of a country whose relations with the U.S. have become more ...

Antibiotics Destroy Memories?
Even in my earliest days of practicing medicine, I was never a big fan of prescribing antibiotics – except, of course, in cases of extreme or life-threatening infections. Because even back then, I was concerned about the damage these drugs could cause to your gut. That’s because trillions of microscopic bacteria – some that protect against certain diseases and some that can cause disease – live in your microbiome and exist in a delicate balance with each other. The problem is that antibiotics can’t distinguish between so-called “good” bacteria and the “bad” ones causing the infection. These drugs kill eve...

Turmeric may be as good for treating indigestion as drug to curb excess stomach acid

This Overlooked Nutrient May Be The Key To Brain Power
Aging is inevitable. But have you noticed that some very elderly people still don’t miss a thing? Some of my patients fall into this category. I’ve worked with many centenarians who remain quick-witted, with keen memories and focus. You can be one of these people, too — an all-star senior… Inside all of you, your cells are constantly busy dividing up to two trillion times per day. The new cells replace old, damaged, or dead cells and help you live, grow and thrive. Human cell lines have built-in mortality. As your cells divide, there’s a limit at which their limit is reached. There’s an internal mechanism o...

The Establishment Failed Pel é And Kristie
I was saddened to hear that soccer legend Pelé and “Cheers” star Kirstie Alley both died of colon cancer late last year. But the wider part of this tragedy is that this kind of cancer is highly preventable and still poorly understood by most doctors. Mainstream physicians – as well as the media – will tell you your age causes colon cancer, the genes you inherited from your family, and a high-fat diet. They couldn’t be more wrong. Colorectal cancer has nothing to do with age and very little to do with your genes… Instead, it has everything to do with epigenetics. This is the important relationship between o...

Curry may have landed in Southeast Asia 2000 years ago
Even after 2000 years, the stone slab still smelled of nutmeg. Unearthed in an ancient village in southern Vietnam, the cookware—roughly the size and shape of an anvil—was likely used to grind the spice, along with other ingredients familiar in today’s curries. The discovery, reported today in Science Advances , marks the earliest known example of spice processing in mainland Southeast Asia . It also suggests that visitors from India and Indonesia may have introduced their culinary traditions to the region millennia ago. “For decades, we have known of the strong Indian influence on Southea...
