Show Notes:
A short report on my Practical Herbology 102 class through CNHP this past weekend. Why the podcast was delayed. Equipment problems nixed the recording of interviews I had planned at the course. The problem of Bastyr University and its cohorts trying to “hijack” the “ND” designation and be the only approved school for Naturopathy by influencing local state legislatures to enact ND registration and licensure. It has become illegal in South Carolina to be a Traditional Naturopath without this organization “stamp” of approval. My own experience and background as a graduate of Trinity School of Natural Health and other organizations. Is one school’s Bachelors degree, for instance, any less “real” than another school’s? There are organizations that are working to help you maintain your heath freedoms… check them out! Lack of Vitamin D can be a “marker” for atherosclerosis. Vitamin D may help curb breast cancer progression, suggests a small study published ahead of print in the Journal of Clinical Pathology. Perrigo Co., the nation’s largest maker of store-brand drugs for retailers such as CVS, Safeway and Food Lion, is recalling 11 million bottles of the painkiller acetaminophen after finding small metal particles in 200 caplets. YOU need to check your medicine cabinet and see if you need to throw out your acetaminophen. If they are having a particularly hard time nailing down a diagnosis, sometimes doctors use Google, according to an Australian study. The Google Scholar project. The difference between Allopathic and Naturopathic approaches in terms of “labeling” a disease as opposed to reinforcing the healthy immune system.

I appreciate your e-mails and questions on the Podcast! I will be getting back to those of you that wrote! Information on the web site and what interests me in the health news. When is an old drug worth $4,200.00 PER DOSE? This drug is a terrible travesty of justice! And they are aiming it at people that are desperate! And the side effects are terrible! What is the motivation? A cure, no! Money! A discussion of “SAD” (Seasonal Affective Disorder) and “free mental screening clinics” that are in place to sell drugs! Vitamin D and it’s relation to osteoporosis. SAD is “sunlight deficiency!” Drug commercials on TV. “Black tea” may reduce stress” an “old wive’s tale” that is true! Avoid pure, refined sugar since it is a metabolic poison! “Black tea” reduces cortisol. Scientists call experience “anecdotal evidence.” Aloe Vera as an herbal remedy to heal burns. And, herbal remedies avoid chemical and drug side effects. Chemotherapy retards brain function for ten years or longer! Chemotherapy kills cells; even good cells. DO the “benefits” outweigh the risks?” I think not! Mental fog and confusion after chemo is not due to emotional issues, but is due to chemo effecting the frontal lobe of the brain. There are natural, effective alternatives to chemotherapy. There are benefits to allopathic medicine for “heroic” medical intervention, like after an accident. Naturopathic treatment strengthens your immune system and helps you remain healthy. That’s the difference between an allopathic and naturopathic approach. Write me and I will help you locate a naturopath in YOUR area! YOU are the one MOST responsible for YOUR personal health!

A new type of bandage made from chitosan from shellfish. Chitosan was originally used as a “fat absorber” to lose weight. Why that may not be the right approach for all! Pecans (which contain Vitamin E) may be beneficial in reducing blood oxidation. Why antioxidants are of benefit. Chemical “air fresheners” don’t “freshen the air” they reduce lung function. The difference between an allopathic and a naturopathic view of disease.

Show Notes:
A high sugar, low fiber diet in “Western Society” is making our children obese. Our “fast food” society is generating a “fat food” society! Calorie intake and expenditure normally are regulated by leptin. When the hormone, leptin, is functioning properly it increases physical activity, decreases appetite, and increases feelings of well-being. Conversely, when leptin is suppressed, feelings of well-being and activity decrease and appetite increases, a state called “leptin resistance.” Drinking fruit and vegetable juices can decrease your susceptibility to Alzheimer’s Disease. Polyphenols… chemicals available in many natural foods… might disrupt the processes, and even lend some protection to Alzheimer’s by neutralising the effect of damaging compounds called free radicals. Fruit and vegetable juices are particularly rich in polyphenols! Anger reduces both lung function and adversely effects the immune system. Emotional therapies can help many physiological conditions! Are drug companies “pushing drugs”… what is their actual motivation in producing drugs?

Show Notes:
A technical problem with last week’s podcast! A quick “tutorial” for the Traditional Naturopath website. If you are not getting enough sleep, you might actually gain weight! The benefits of small things, and small changes, to your overall health. “Non-exercise associated thermogenesis” or NEAT. The FDA approves a spray-on virus as an “additive” for meat! Is this insane, or what? The “Rain Forest” view of your gut! How this “additive” could “de-folliate” the “rainforest” of your intestines! Accutane, an acne drug, has serious side effects! Aspartame (also sold under the brand name of “Nutrasweet”) as an ant poison! The asparctic acid contained in this toxic product is a well-documented excitotoxin! Apparently, only 1 in 8000 cows “taste great!” Cloned cattle may be in our future… but not for me!
