A Florida lawmaker is looking to improve his state’s telehealth laws by eliminating some of the complexity and opening the door to audio-only phone calls and virtual prescribing.
Dr. Matthias Rath believes heart attacks and strokes are not true diseases but the result of nutritional deficiencies. “Heart disease is not caused so much by what you eat as by what you don’t eat.” Whatever we choose to believe or conceive, traumatic brain injury (TBI) and cerebral vascular events are usually devastating, yet because few in the mainstream listen to Dr. Rath, heart disease and strokes continue to mow down the public in excessive numbers.

Have you had an experience recently, of trying to share information with someone who, even if they engaged with the video or article of your choice, seemed completely impervious to it? Like scientific facts and data did nothing to change their perspective?
We are entering a post-science world. Continue reading
It may come as a surprise to some, especially those with conventional medical training, but the default state of the body is one of ceaseless regeneration. Without the flame-like process of continual cell turnover within the body – life and death ceaselessly intertwined – the miracle of the human body would not exist Continue reading
Telehealth and mHealth technology have propelled the nurse from a note-taker and hand-holder to a controller and dispenser of information. And they’re using those skill to improve care management and coordination.
The Health and Human Services Secretary will allow healthcare providers to use telehealth across state lines to deliver “Covered Countermeasures” against the coronavirus.
- An antimalarial treatment made from the plant Artemisia annua (Sweet Wormwood) shows promise as a COVID-19 treatment
- The drug artesunate — which contains two compounds found in Artemisia annua: artemisinin and dihydroartemisinin — is a first-line treatment for malaria
- In a recent in vitro study, both pretreatment and treatment with artemisinin extracts, synthetic artemisinin and the drug artesunate were able to inhibit SARS-CoV-2 infection. However, artesunate was the most potent in terms of treatment, and from a clinical perspective may be the only one worth pursuing
- Artesunate’s mechanism of action against SARS-CoV-2 is as yet unknown, but artemisinin does have confirmed antiviral activity
- The World Health Organization has come out in opposition to artemisinin-based products, warning their use can bolster drug-resistant strains of malaria parasites. For this reason, people living in malaria-prone areas should be cautious about using this plant remedy
Popular among athletes and the like, the ketogenic diet shares a lot of similarities with the Atkins diet, especially in the sense that it strictly monitors — if not entirely eliminates — carbohydrate intake. Continue reading
Think skipping your nightly dental care routine is no big deal? The results of a recent study linking gum health to inflammatory diseases like heart disease may convince you to never skip oral hygiene again Continue reading
Addicted: America’s Opioid Crisis
- 1 child in 8 lives with a parent who suffers from a substance abuse disorder in America, and every 15 minutes, a baby in America is born suffering from opioid withdrawal
- Prescription opioid use is a significant risk factor for subsequent heroin use; 1 in 3 people who misused opioids during their high school years ended up using heroin by age 35
- One of the most prominent drug companies involved in the creation of this opioid addiction crisis is Purdue Pharma, the maker of OxyContin. In October 2020, Purdue pleaded guilty to three federal criminal charges relating to its role in the opioid crisis
- When it comes to children and teens, a major source of opioids are dentists, who wrote a staggering 18.1 million prescriptions for opioids in 2017. Opioids are frequently prescribed when extracting wisdom teeth, even though there’s no evidence to support this strategy. Children are also recklessly prescribed addictive opioids for minor surgical procedures
- Opioids have a very high rate of addiction and have not been proven effective for long-term use. Research shows opioids do not control moderate to severe pain any better than over-the-counter drugs such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen and naproxen
Launch of Third Edition – Hydrogen Medicine
This third edition of Hydrogen Medicine will explore hydrogen gas, hydrogen water, oxygen (O2), and carbon dioxide (CO2). Combining these gases will usher in a new age of medicine where the impossible becomes possible. The only other place all this information comes together is in my 100 lesson cancer course.
Expect every protocol to perform better when the levels of these primordial gasses are optimized. Looking for the fountain of youth (anti-aging medicines), we find nothing as powerful as these gases when used intelligently together. Everything done in ICU and emergency departments are safer when these gases are employed. Continue reading
