Sugar addiction is a subtle and insidious dependency that creeps up completely unnoticed. Unknowingly consumed in processed food or a seemingly harmless meal out, sugar is everywhere. In fact, the average American ingests 150 pounds of refined sugar a year — the equivalent of five tons throughout a lifetime. Don’t be fooled. Simply because sugar is a widespread, accepted substance, doesn’t mean it is anymore innocuous than morphine or heroin. It is just as addictive, if not more so. But there is hope. With a few dietary and lifestyle changes, sugar dependency can be tamed and healthy well-being restored. Continue reading

Blood tests have been a mainstay of diagnostic medicine since the late 19th century, offering a wealth of information concerning health and disease.

By now just about everybody’s heard that we should cut back on salt to avoid high blood pressure, heart disease and other physiological complications. But that advice is wrongheaded and simplistic. Getting too little salt can be as harmful as getting too much. The fact is you need just the right amount of salt and the right kind of salt to protect your health. Continue reading
We are in the “Age of Aluminum”, this according to a lecture by Dr. Chris Exley, PhD at a January 2011 vaccine safety conference in Jamaica. A common expression among those who deflect aluminum’s toxicity issues is that aluminum is prominent throughout the earth’s crust. What they fail to mention is that aluminum (Al) wasn’t widely bioavailable to humans until the latter part of the 19th Century when it began to be mined for creating metals and medicines.

Sometimes, when trying to ascertain the state of your natural health, it takes understanding the hidden triggers of any symptoms you have. On that note, let’s take a peek at five hidden reasons you might be experiencing digestive problems.
1. Fructose Intolerance
This is a hereditary disorder in which your body cannot metabolize fructose (a sugar molecule), resulting in its build-up in the liver, kidneys, and intestines. It causes abdominal pain and vomiting. You might suspect there is a fructose problem should you experience these symptoms continually after eating foods that claim it as an ingredient. For a diagnosis, see your doctor. The cure here is to avoid fructose and steer clear of sucrose and sorbitol, two related sugars. Gather nutritional information to see which foods are safe. A small list of safe foods includes milk, eggs, most meat, poultry, fish, asparagus, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, green beans, green peppers, salad greens, potatoes, spaghetti, butter, margarine, olive oil, coffee & tea, vegetable juice, and soups.

Remaining properly hydrated is vital to being optimally well. Dehydration, or lack of proper water in the body, can lead to dozens of ailments and pains and even disease.
It is argued, the bottled-water industry tries to make us believe drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day is necessary for health.
“We may not be as dehydrated as bottled-water makers would have us believe,” reported Betsy McKay in The Wall Street Journal. McKay’s comment was in response to a peer-review study that “found no evidence to support the vigorously promoted assertion that drinking at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day (known as the “8×8” rule) is essential to good health.”
In questioning the origin and necessity of the 8×8 water rule, the American Journal of Physiology asked Heinz Valtin, M.D., to undertake a rigorous literature review to ascertain the scientific proof for the daily drinking of 64 ounces of water. Valtin was the go-to physiologist for this project, as he has been active in the field for decades and has written several textbooks on the kidneys and water balance. Continue reading
