The couple of molecular changes to natural hormones all the big pharmaceutical companies make so they can patent their product and sell it at high prices actually make these drugs more harmful than the natural hormones. All the symptoms and diseases caused from low thyroid; how the three estrogens should be balanced; how scarce iodine is; how low iodine cotributes to cancer and many other chronic diseases; and how much better natural, unprocessed salt—with all its many healthy minerals—is for us than the common, white processed salt, are only a few of the fascinating topics covered.

He then points out many positive steps we all can take as individuals and he has already taken to desire many fewer objects, move to a much smaller house, consume far less of our finite resources, and live a simpler, happier, cleaner and more sustainable life with his family of four. [link]

Howard, MD, bio Dr. Howard is one of the great doctors who is willing to track down the true root cause of disease symptoms (instead of merely prescribing a symptom suppressing medicationoften with many bad side effects). Gluten sensitivity can spread to all parts of the body, including the brain! After using the ELISA/ACT (which can cost up to $2,000) for many years to track down food and chemical sensitivities in patients, Dr. Howard now uses an accurate, non-invasive computerized test that only costs $175. [link]
THE SCIENCE OF PROBIOTICS: Vol XXXI, No. 2, SPRING 2006 Ever since the ancient Bulgarians, who lived exceptionally long and healthy lives to many farmers who increase milk yield, egg production, and disease resistance, the practice of probiotics—the billions of micro-organisms living in our gut—has benefitted many people in different ways.

SPINNING THE LOSING WAR AGAINST CANCER: Vol XXIXI, No. 4, Fall 2004 by Samuel S. Epstein, MD, bio, and Quentin D. Young, MD, bio. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the American Cancer Society (ACS) are totally misleading the public when the NCI and ACS claim that we are "winning" the "war against cancer." However, the actual cancer death rates have remained the same since President Nixon first declared the war in 1971. The NCI and ACS budgets have greatly increased over this period. There appears to be a conflict of interest since most of the NCI and ACS donations come from large companies making anti-cancer drugs which only treat cancer symptoms. Hardly any funds are directed toward finding the true root causes of cancer—exposure to carcinigens in our air, water, cosmetics, and, pesticides. [link]
  • THE DOCTOR'S CORNER: SYNTHETIC HORMONE REPLACEMENT THEORY: UNAVOIDABLY DANGEROUS: AN ANSWER by Mayer Eisenstein, MD, JD, MPH, bio The Synthetic Replacement Therapies that many women take for menopausal symptoms are very dangerous because many end up with breast or ovarian cancer, or heart disease.

  • ADEQUATE SUPPLEMENTATION IN FIRST LINE COMPREHENSIVE MEDICINE .... NOHA speaker Russell M. Jaffe, MD, PhD, bio, gave an excellent lecture explaining how, with the huge increase in toxic exposures we all are subjected to these days from our food and environment, most of our immune systems spend all their time and energy defending against these toxic invaders so the immune systems have little if no time left to repair and rebuilt the body. Over time this leads to leaky gut, leaky blood/brain barrier, and many chronic diseases. On the other hand, we can remain healthy with a proper nutritous diet and/or proper, pure supplements based on specific individual tests. There is NO difference in the hormonal neurochemical immune responses (eyesight, hearing, skin elasticity, etc.) of a HEALTHY person whether they are 20, 40, 60, or 90!! [link]
