Promising new Alzheimer’s drug aducanumab

There’s hope that the first true cure for Alzheimer’s disease is around the corner.  In tests of patients with the disease, a new experimental drug removed plaque from their brains—amyloidal plaque—thought by many to be the underlying cause of the disease. This was a huge first. No previous drug, ever, had removed that plaque. Caution: […]

Cheesy Cruciferous Casserole

Cruciferous vegetables are my favorite anti-cancer vegetables. There’s a lot of clear clinical research on the health benefits of broccoli, brussels sprouts, and their relatives. However, because they can be somewhat bitter when cooked, cruciferous vegetables are ones I find my patients most reluctant to try. One way to begin enjoying a food you’re less […]

Mammograms don’t prevent cancer deaths

Everyone’s heard that, after 40, women should be getting periodic mammograms. However, new research suggests that mammograms aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. As a diagnostic tool, it turns out that mammograms may not change the odds you will develop late-stage breast cancer, compared to having no mammogram at all. Considering the entire point […]

CoQ10 for Blood Sugar Control

Diabetes is an ever-growing problem. Today, about one in every ten American adults has type II diabetes—and the number grows to one out of every four seniors 65+. The odds are very good that it affects you, or someone close to you. And diabetes isn’t a condition that is well-handled, or easily treated on a […]

Manage IBS Naturally

A shocking number of people suffer from IBS, or irritable bowel syndrome. About 45 million in America alone—15% of the population. And, perhaps most frustrating, there’s no good way to deal with IBS. Or, rather, there wasn’t until now. But, thanks to some researchers in Australia, there’s a new diet that solves—or at least alleviates—IBS […]

Amaranth Power Patties

It’s a great idea to add some meat-free meals into your dietary rotation. I sometimes feel like I don’t get something to really bite into if I’m eating a lot of super grains or beans. Turning the nutrient-packed grain amaranth into a patty gives me something to sink my teeth into while still being relatively […]

Curcumin: Natural Cancer Therapy

Curcumin is a wonder-nutrient derived from the turmeric root.  This health multi-tasker has been shown to reduce inflammation, boost brain function and it is increasingly recognized as a powerful cancer fighter. Cancer is a notoriously tricky disease to tame…but here are some of the varieties that curcumin has been shown to fight best. Types of […]

Chocolate’s Health Benefits

Today, I’m recommending that you make flavanols, catechin, and biologically active phenolic compounds part of your daily diet.  No, don’t doze off!  I’m talking about chocolate, for its powerful positive effects on aging, stress, blood pressure, heart health, mental function, and more. Once targeted as a cause of acne, obesity, tooth decay, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, and diabetes, chocolate […]

Natural Nausea Treatments

We’ve all been there.  That queasy, uneasy, uncomfortable uncertainty—am I going to throw up? It’s horrible. Big Pharma’s in the game, of course. And some drugs are useful for extreme, nausea-causing conditions, like chemotherapy. But in most cases, natural remedies are better. What causes nausea? There are scores of conditions that can bring on nausea. […]

Caprese Toast

A caprese salad is a simple, delicious, refreshing salad of tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella. It’s a great dish which relies on extremely high quality ingredients for maximum flavor impact. I love caprese salads, but you can only really enjoy them in the summer, because the hothouse tomatoes available the rest of the year simply aren’t […]
