    Statin therapy should not be recommended for individuals with elevated cholesterol who are otherwise healthy.
  • 4/9/2012
    We explore diseases of the urninary system in order to gain an understanding of how to either prevent them in the first place, or reverse them after the fact -- rather than merely manage their symptoms.
  • 3/26/2012
    Understanding how the nephrons in your kidneys work, and how you can prevent and reverse damage to them -- even assist them -- is fundamental to maintaining optimum health.
  • 3/12/2012
    Jon examines the anatomy of the urinary system and explores those things that can go wrong in all areas of the system -- and how we can use natural therapies to overcome those problems.  
  • 2/27/2012
    Only about 20% of conventional medicine is supported by studies. And even at that, studies provide far less validation and certitude than most people think.
  • 2/13/2012
    When it comes to nutrition, the medical community and so-called scientific studies may be the greatest spreaders of myth and misinformation in the world today. And now they're at it again.

    Research published in BMJ Open last November, strongly suggests that there may be a link between synthetic estrogen from oral contraceptives that has found its way into the environment and the rising rate of prostate cancer among men around the world.
  • 1/16/2012
    Jon examines the validity of a recently released study that claims that at least 14,000 people (with a special focus on children under the age of one) died in the U.S. during the 14 weeks following the Fukushima disaster.
  • 1/2/2012
    This newsletter is my gift to all our media subscribers. By the end of this newsletter, I want you to walk away newly outfitted with two fundamental questions that you will henceforth be able to call upon when reporting on future studies.
  • 12/12/2011
    When it comes to health, it’s all based on odds, not guarantees. Anyone who tells you that if you take certain supplements you’re not going to get cancer is lying to you. And any doctor who tells you that if you get a flu shot you’re safe from the flu is lying to you.
  • 11/28/2011
    A recent study proving that niacin doesn't help prevent heart attacks and strokes actually rips the facade off one of the biggest medical rackets in the world -- statin drugs.
  • 11/14/2011
    A recent obesity study out of Australia has concluded that when people lose weight, their metabolism automatically slows down and they experience hormonal changes that increase appetite.
  • 10/31/2011
    On October 12th, the researchers conducting the Selenium and Vitamin E Cancer Prevention Trial  published the results of their eight year investigation  by announcing that vitamin E supplementation not only does not help prevent prostate cancer; it actually increases your risk of getting it -- substantially. As it turns out, the study is based on false logic. It is sophistry. It is bad advice.
  • 10/17/2011
    In mid-September, Dr. Oz, announced on his nationally syndicated show that apple juice imported from China may be slowly poisoning children because the Chinese spray their apples with arsenic pesticide. But the issue is not necessarily what Dr. Oz implied.
  • 10/3/2011
    In our concluding segment on the immune system, we progressively step outside the box and draw a clear line between the medical view of the immune system and the holistic view. And ultimately, we arrive at the primary point of separation.
  • 9/19/2011
    In this part of our series on the immune system, we talk about the complementary immune system, how your immune system communicates, and how we build immunity.
  • 9/5/2011
    In our last newsletter, we explored the elite half of the immune system: cell-mediated immunity.  These are the T-cells and Cytotoxic NK killer cells. To use a military analogy, these are the officers of the immune system -- those educated at West Point. In this issue, we explore humoral immunity, the grunts of the immune system, the draftees who man the front lines and do the bulk of the fighting.
  • 8/22/2011
    Understanding how your immune system works and how to optimize it, while at the same time keeping it in balance so it does not run out of control, turn on you, and attack your own body, is essential to good health…if not your very life.
  • 8/8/2011
    A recent "commentary" article concerning dietary supplements, written by Bryan E. Denham, PhD was published in JAMA, thus carrying the imprimatur of the American Medical Association. If you were to hazard a guess, what side of the issue do you think the good doctor and the AMA came down on -- pro or con vis-à-vis alternative medicine and dietary supplements? Good guess!
  • 7/25/2011
    Seemingly unrelated external events or circumstances can literally alter our brains for good or ill -- sometimes permanently, unless somehow deliberately changed back.
