  • 5/31/2010
    We begin a series of newsletters on the endocrine system and hormones by taking a look at the three endocrine glands in the human brain: the hypothalamus, the pituitary, and the pineal gland.
  • 5/10/2010
    The European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition just concluded that eating fruits and vegetables doesn't significantly reduce your risk of cancer. This would indeed be a ground breaking study...if it were true.
  • 4/26/2010
    A sampling of the thousands of questions that have been received at the Foundation over the last 12 months.
  • 3/29/2010
    Ultimately, everything that happens in the digestive tract is designed to get nutrients into the bloodstream. Effectively, this is the heart and soul of our entire series on the digestive tract.
  • 3/8/2010
    It's not what you eat or digest that matters; it's what you absorb. And when it comes to absorption, the small intestine is the portal for virtually all nutrients that enter into the bloodstream.
  • 2/8/2010
    We return to our exploration of the intestinal tract with a look at the macro and micro anatomy of the small intestine. A great deal of digestion still occurs in the small intestine, but the overall emphasis is on absorption.
  • 1/25/2010
    When it comes to the current healthcare bill, everyone is wrong and heading for a world of hurt. And for those of you living overseas who are not directly affected by the bill, you face the same demographics that undermine things here in the U.S. -- probably even more so.
  • 1/11/2010
    What can go wrong with the liver, how doctors test for it, and what you can do about it. Also, an examination of the gallbladder and biliary tree in detail, fully explaining why, despite doctors' love of the procedure, the gallbladder rarely needs to be removed.
  • 12/21/2009
    An exploration of the anatomy and physiology of the liver in detail from a natural health perspective, concluding with a discussion of how the body regulates cholesterol and why statin drugs may not be all that doctors promote.
  • 12/7/2009
    We explore the anatomy and physiology of the pancreas and how it participates in the digestive process. In addition, we explore how abuse of this commonly ignored organ (through poor diet, inadequate supplementation, and lack of regular cleansing) can lead to serious -- even fatal -- health problems.
  • 11/23/2009
    Whereas fear of the swine flu was the dominant issue in the spring and early summer, fear of government response to swine flu is now the dominant issue. And much of this can be attributed to exaggerations and misstatements on all sides.
  • 11/9/2009
    We now explore how what we've learned about the anatomy and physiology of the stomach translates into problems that can occur, including peptic ulcers, acid reflux, mineral absorption, B12 absorption, incomplete digestion, and weight gain - and how to deal with those problems.
  • 10/26/2009
    We conclude our exploration of the anatomy and physiology of the stomach from a natural health perspective and examine the three phases of stomach digestion. In the process, we return to our comparison of the digestive systems of carnivores, omnivores, frugivores, and humans to get a better handle on what we were designed to eat.
  • 10/12/2009
    In Part 1 of our series on the digestive system, we explored the process whereby food enters the stomach through the mouth and esophagus. We now pick up the process as the food arrives in the stomach.
  • 9/28/2009
    Over the course of the next half dozen or so newsletters, I'm going to walk you through the digestive system -- from the tip of your tongue to the outer edge of your rectum. This will help you understand the nature of diseases of the digestive tract (everything from excess gas to acid reflux, from peptic ulcers to irritable bowel syndrome) and how to treat them naturally by working with your body, not against it.
  • 9/14/2009
    Everyone produces up to 10,000 cancer cells every single day of their life as part of the normal metabolic process. Don't be frightened. Once you understand it, it's possible to work with your body to prevent those cells from ever taking root - or reverse them if they do.
  • 8/31/2009
    Jon explains why you should be very concerned about rumblings out of Washington and across the country to tax "fat foods" as a new source of revenue.
  • 8/17/2009
    Medical peer-reviewed journals are not the be-all and end-all when it comes to identifying which treatments work, and which ones don't. Learn how you have paid over $1.5 trillion dollars for treatments, drugs, and procedures - all flawed, and all promoted at one time in peer reviewed journals.
  • 8/3/2009
    The World Health Organization predicts that the H1N1 swine-flu virus could infect up to two billion people over the next two years, and the American government is projecting several hundred thousand deaths nationwide. Time to panic? Not at all, says Jon. Things aren't what they seem.
  • 7/20/2009
    The costs associated with health care are becoming impossible. The American model is headed for disaster, but so are all the European models, the Canadian model, and all models currently being proposed by Congress. Only a fundamental change in paradigm can allow the world to escape the coming disaster.
