  • Getting to the Heart of It – Real Heart Disease Risk, Beyond LDL

      The question of why such a large number of people with “desirable cholesterol numbers” have heart attacks requires answers. Averaging various studies and reports, it seems that at least 50% if not more of the patients admitted for myocardial infarction – one study of 65,000 such people -showed a total cholesterol “very desirable” at […]

  • A Disease by Any Other Name – examining the roots of chronic disease

        Looking from the outside, the chronic diseases humans have look like very different things.  Diabetes looks nothing like arthritis.   Osteoporosis looks nothing like heart disease or Alzheimer’s.  But if we switch our perspective, to that from inside the body, things change. The pharmaceutical paradigm is built on a research paradigm that looks for […]

    The Ideal Diet for Longevity?

      For the simple reason that food can make us well or make us sick, there is much debate in the literature and much effort put into understanding the ideal diet.

The first 2 generations of this pet created unforeseen problems because there was no pause button, and if you didn’t continuously take care of the Tamagotchi, it would die in a day. Children and even adults […]

  • Pancreatic cancer – more clues – microbiome, again.

    Small study shows oral bacteria  is consistent, with significant difference, between those with and without pancreatic cancer.   Let’s make a study that defines, broadly, which species in the microbiome define a state of “health” and start there with our preventative treatment – balance the gut, and see all the diseases our patients don’t get.  This […]

  • Biomarkers –

    Blood samples from 17,000 “healthy” people were taken and their health status followed for over 5 years.  Of those who had died – of a variety of diseases – they found 4 biomarkers to be consistent throughout. They are albumin, alpha-1 acid glycoprotein, citrate, and the size of the VLDL particles.   All of these molecules […]
