Tainted Supplements Still Available

Supplements Loaded With Banned Drugs Stull Available After FDA Recall

 

For JAMA, (Journal of the American Medical Society – October 23).

A group of doctors from Boston decided to look into a variety of over the counter supplements that the FDASupplementsBanned had recalled because they were adulterated with ‘banned pharmaceutical ingredients’. So they bought the supplements from the usual providers to see if the banned substances had been removed. They bought some from online retailers and some straight form the manufacturers sites. On average, their purchases

Starch is Bad for Diabetics, Why is it Recommended?

BRITISH NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE’S BIZARRE RECOMMENDATION FOR DIABETICS

Some things make me want to scream. From the British National Health Service web site we have:

“The important thing in managing diabetes through your diet is to eat regularly and include starchy carbohydrates, such as pasta,….”

Do these people live in a parallel universe? Type II (adult onset) diabetes is, very simply, an inability to metabolize excess amount of carbohydrates, specifically glucose.

How to Figure Which Diet Is Best ForYou

Ms. Q. T. from Wyoming writes: Which is best: The Paleo Diet or the Mediterranean Diet? I have tried both. I couldn’t see much difference.

You are really asking several questions at once.

First of all, there is no ‘best’ diet. Everyone is too different for that to ever be the case. Some people are fine with starch, others get sick and put on weight. The only way to determine a person’s ideal diet is to measure their various health Mikenumbers (glucose, insulin, cholesterol, etc.), and make dietary alterations based on that. Then measure again, and perhaps adjust again. I, for instance, can’t drink alcohol, but my wife’s metabolism, very different than mine, is fine with it.

Quantitative Medicine FAQ

WHAT IS QUANTITATIVE MEDICINE?

The Theory and Practice of Peak Health

Quantitative medicine is the practice of determining and modifying your health guided by direct measurement of Mikemeaningful biological markers. Everyone is different. The best diet is unique to each of us. Diet markers must be directly and precisely measured. If your health is good then your measurements (mostly blood tests) will be good as well. If you can maintain these ideal measurements (and most people can if they set their mind to it) you will be healthy,will age slowly, and will be at low risk of degenerative diseases such as cancer, adult onset diabetes and heart disease.

Exercise And Cancer

Exercise And Cancer

What I will here describe should be life-changing stuff; a powerful argument for tracking and improving your HDL; oh, and by “all-natural” means only.

Over 40 years ago Dr. Cooper, he of the Cooper Clinic and The Institute for Aerobics Research in Dallas, advocated exercise as protection against not only heart disease but cancer. The early epidemiological data supporting his position was carefully dismantled over the years.

Reverse or Prevent Heart Disease

Yes, and I know how. (Supplements are not the answer)

Each of these variables is statistically more powerful as a risk, as a protection and as a behavior modifiable marker of stroke and heart attack than ANY single cholesterol number. I know how to improve each of these factors and want to teach you how to do so.

Can I do this on my own?

Most of my posts on this website are intended to sketch a non-drug approach to medical problems. But it should be kept in mind that rarely does a week go by that I do not write a prescription so I am not against drugs. I am against their use for problems that are best treated by the body’s own capacity to heal.
