Conquering Stress by Renewing Your Adrenals

Conquering Stress by Renewing Your Adrenals

Take a moment and imagine this scene with me.

It’s a Saturday afternoon, 72 degrees outside with a slight breeze, not a cloud in the sky. Stress1It’s one of those picture-perfect days that must be enjoyed to the fullest. You have packed a picnic lunch and decided to go for a hike by yourself. You are four hours into your hike and your muscles are just starting to get a little bit sore, when suddenly you come to a clearing. Set before you is a beautiful lake with water as still and calm as glass. You walk over to the water’s edge, take a deep breath in and lean down to scoop up a refreshing splash of water. You could not imagine a more peaceful, serene moment. Your stomach starts rumbling when suddenly you hear it…SNAP! Continue reading

Niacin and Schizophrenia: History and Opportunity

Niacin and Schizophrenia: History and Opportunity

(OMNS Oct 27, 2014) Schizophrenia is usually treated with prescription antipsychotic drugs, many of which produce severe adverse effects (1-6); are linked to an incentive for monetary profit benefiting pharmaceutical corporations (7-13); lack sufficient evidence for safety and efficacy (9, 14); and have been grossly misused (15-20). Orthomolecular (nutritional) medicine provides another approach to treating schizophrenia, which involves the optimal doses of vitamin B3-also known as niacin, niacinamide, nicotinamide, or nicotinic acid-in conjunction with an individualized protocol of multiple vitamins. The orthomolecular approach involves treating “mental disease by the provision of the optimum molecular environment for the mind, especially the optimum concentrations of substances normally present in the human body” (21) Continue reading

Ebola, Enterovirus, Dirty Dishes and Plague

Ebola, Enterovirus, Dirty Dishes and Plague

(OMNS Sept 13, 2014) If Abraham Lincoln were to describe the germ theory, I think he might have put it something like this:

“You can infect some of the people all of the time, and infect all of the people some of the time; but you cannot infect all of the people all of the time.”

The question, of course, is, Why? Why do some people have high resistance to illness? Why do some people seem to get sick looking at a picture of a germ? Certainly their level of nutrition, perhaps more than any other single factor, is reason number one. I think “germs” are a much smaller reason. Continue reading

Cancer Has a Sweet Tooth

Cancer Has a Sweet Tooth

In 1931, the Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to a German scientist, Otto Warburg, Ph.D. He discovered that cancer cells have a fundamentally different energy metabolism compared to healthy cells; most cancer cells exhibit anaerobic glycolysis, the breakdown of glucose in the absence of oxygen, with lactic acid as a byproduct. This is an inefficient pathway for the Continue reading

Obesity and the Risk of Cancer

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) criteria, a BMI greater than or equal to 25kg/m2 is overweight, while obesity is defined as having a BMI equal to or higher than 30 kg/m2.
