  • 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.
  • 7/6/2009
    This issue explores the virtues of green tea, while at the same time examining how governments in collusion with large drug companies quietly work in the background to deny you access to the supplements you want and need.
  • 6/22/2009
    We've all heard the expression, You can't see the forest for the trees. Its meaning is simple: if you look too closely at small details, you miss the big picture. And so it is when it comes to studies that explore the relationship between gum disease and various illnesses. When each study is viewed as a single tree, no one sees the forest. What specifically am I talking about? What is the trigger for today's newsletter?
  • 6/8/2009
    On May 27th, the American Cancer Society announced that 650,400 U.S. cancer deaths were avoided from the early 1990s through 2005. This is thrilling, exciting, and, oh yes, absolutely unsupported by the evidence at hand.
  • 5/25/2009
    The FDA, the Center for Science in the Public Interest, GlaxoSmithKlein, Donald Rumsfeld, and the U.S. Senate have all been involved in some very nasty, behind-the-scenes activities that are likely to have profound adverse effects on your health.
  • 5/11/2009
    The biggest damage from the swine flu outbreak may yet turn out to be that it is being used as an excuse by the FDA and FTC (and ultimately government agencies throughout the world) to come down on complementary health like a sledge hammer.
  • 4/27/2009
    Kudos to the medical establishment in honor of the things they are finally getting right. If only they could go all the way.
  • 4/13/2009
    Until the alternative health community learns to stop focusing exclusively on "big picture" issues such as Codex and Congressional bills and starts paying attention to the smaller things happening under the radar, the rights of everyone interested in optimized health will be steadily eroded.
  • 3/30/2009
    Is caffeine saint or sinner, miracle drug or prenatal nightmare? In truth, it's all of the above. The devil, as usual when it comes to natural substances, lies in the details.
  • 3/16/2009
    When evaluating the issue of raw foods, you need to consider the effect of cooking or not cooking on things such as: Pathogens, Beneficial bacteria, Nutrients, Enzymes, Denaturing of proteins, Digestibility and assimilation, Life force.
  • 3/2/2009
    The focus of this newsletter is on diseases that affect the bronchioles and alveoli. We're talking about COPD, emphysema, bronchitis, asthma, allergies, flu, pneumonia, cystic fibrosis, pulmonary fibrosis, and pulmonary embolisms.
  • 2/16/2009
    In this issue, we discuss the physiology, or functioning, of the respiratory system, what can go wrong with those functions, and what natural alternatives exist to correct them.
  • 2/2/2009
    We examine the anatomy of the respiratory system and learn about its two primary functions. First, it is an exchange system – swapping out carbon dioxide for oxygen. Second, it is instrumental in maintaining the acid/alkaline pH balance in your body.
  • 1/19/2009
    A study by the Voice of Young Science (VoYS) found that there is little or no proof that detoxing products work, except to part people from their cash. Jon's study of the VoYS study, on the other hand, found it to be mostly nonsense and nonsequitur.
  • 1/5/2009
    The only thing that stands in the way of government initiatives throughout the world designed to crush the alternative health industry is public outcry. For the most part, the signs are not encouraging.
  • 12/22/2008
    The only way that health care can survive -- the only way you can survive -- is if you take back control of your health and start doing those things that allow your body to stay healthy without the need for health care. Or to put it another way, the only way to save health care is to stop using it.
  • 12/8/2008
    The American Cancer Society released a report showing that cancer rates and cancer deaths declined in the latest census, which covers the years 1975 to 2005. But all is not as it seems.
  • 11/24/2008
    What is it about vitamin E that seems to bring out the worst in medical researchers? Once again, I find myself compelled to defend it -- for the umpteenth time. There have been three studies in the last month alone “proving” that vitamin E offers no health benefits. They're seriously flawed, of course.
  • 11/10/2008
    In our last newsletter, we talked about what probiotics are and what the benefits of supplementation might be. In this issue, we conclude our examination of probiotics by exploring: when not to supplement, why probiotic strains matter, how to choose a supplement, and how to maximize the benefits.
  • 10/27/2008
    In Part 1 of the series, we'll explore exactly what probiotics are and what benefits you can expect from supplementation.
