Jill emailed me with this question: Do you have anything to help appetite? I’m 53 years old going through menopause with a hearty appetite.
I think what Jill is experiencing is what many of us are facing. I took a little extra time to reply to her question so that I could share the answer with you.
The good news is I do! I am in my 50’s too and know what you mean…Continue reading

In a stunning development, a former Chief Science Officer for the pharmaceutical giant Pfizer says “there is no science to suggest a second wave should happen.” The “Big Pharma” insider asserts that false positive results from inherently unreliable COVID tests are being used to manufacture a “second wave” based on “new cases.”
Dr. Mike Yeadon, a former Vice President and Chief Science Officer for Pfizer for 16 years, says that half or even “almost all” of tests for COVID are false positives. Dr. Yeadon also argues that the threshold for herd immunity may be much lower than previously thought, and may have been reached in many countries already.Continue reading

An estimated 40 percent of Americans are sleep deprived, according to the documentary “Sleepless in America,” with many getting less than five hours of sleep per night.
There are many reasons for this, from intentionally staying up late to watch TV or surf the web to health problems (like pain) that keep you awake.
Millions of Americans struggle to fall asleep each night, including about 10 percent who suffer from chronic insomnia. This latter condition involves difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep, as well as waking up too early in the morning.
In many cases, making changes to your sleep-hygiene routine and lifestyle, such as exercising more and avoiding exposure to blue light at night, can significantly improve your sleep.
However, if you feel like you’ve tried virtually everything and you’re still struggling to get a restful night’s sleep, it might be time to consider two natural supplements, melatonin and 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP).
Why Melatonin Is Important for Sound Sleep
Your brain typically starts secreting the hormone melatonin around 9 or 10 p.m., which makes you sleepy. These regularly occurring secretions help regulate your sleep cycle as well as provide other important health benefits, including helping to prevent cancer.

Preventing Alzheimer’s Disease Is Easier Than You Think
Science shines new light on root cause of memory problems.
Do you have Insulin Resistance?
If you don’t know, you’re not alone. This is perhaps the single most important question any of us can ask about our physical and mental health—yet most patients, and even many doctors, don’t know how to answer it.
Here in the U.S., insulin resistance has reached epidemic proportions: more than half of us are now insulin resistant. Insulin resistance is a hormonal condition that sets the stage throughout the body for inflammation and overgrowth, disrupts normal cholesterol and fat metabolism, and gradually destroys our ability to process carbohydrates.
Insulin resistance puts us at high risk for many undesirable diseases, including obesity, heart disease, cancer, and type 2 diabetes.
Scarier still, researchers now understand that insulin resistance is a powerful force in the development of Alzheimer’s Disease.
What is insulin resistance?
Insulin is a powerful metabolic hormone that orchestrates how cells access and process vital nutrients, including sugar (glucose).
In the body, one of insulin’s responsibilities is to unlock muscle and fat cells so they can absorb glucose from the bloodstream. When you eat something sweet or starchy that causes your blood sugar to spike, the pancreas releases insulin to usher the excess glucose out of the bloodstream and into cells. If blood sugar and insulin spike too high too often, cells will try to protect themselves from overexposure to insulin’s powerful effects by toning down their response to insulin—they become “insulin resistant.” In an effort to overcome this resistance, the pancreas releases even more insulin into the blood to try to keep glucose moving into cells. The more insulin levels rise, the more insulin resistant cells become. Over time, this vicious cycle can lead to persistently elevated blood glucose levels, or type 2 diabetes.Continue reading

In the featured article,1 Donna Gates, author of The Body Ecology Diet, explains 10 reasons why you might want to think twice the next time you’re tempted to eat processed foods.
1. They’re Addictive and May Cause You to Overeat
Processing modifies or removes important components of food, like fiber, water and nutrients, changing the way they are digested and assimilated in your body.
Unlike whole foods, which contain a mix of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, fiber and water to help you feel satisfied, processed foods stimulate dopamine, a feel-good neurotransmitter, making you feel good even though the food lacks nutrients and fiber. This artificial dopamine stimulation can lead to excessive food cravings and, ultimately, food addiction.
2. They’re Linked to Obesity
Processed foods are virtually guaranteed to contain additives that are linked to obesity. This includes monosodium glutamate (MSG), high-fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners and more. Plus, refined carbohydrates like breakfast cereals, bagels, waffles, pretzels, and most other processed foods quickly break down to sugar.,
This increases your insulin and leptin levels, and contribute to insulin resistance, which is the primary underlying factor of nearly every chronic disease and condition known to man, including weight gain.
3. They Break Principles of Food Combining
Some nutrition and health experts, such as Wayne Pickering, believe that eating foods in certain combinations helps your body’s digestive processes to work more efficiently and absorb more nutrients. Wayne actually constructed a very useful food combining chart that can be obtained on his website. According to one such premise, eating proteins and starches together, which is common in processed foods (such as a pepperoni pizza), inhibits digestion leading to putrification of your food, acidic conditions in your blood and supports disease-causing pathogens in your gut.
Iodine is an element that’s required for the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormones. Since the body does not produce iodine on its own, it needs to come from dietary sources—and striking the right balance is key. Inadequate levels or overconsumption of iodine can lead to or worsen thyroid disease, as well as cause other significant health concerns.
Iodine is one of the most important minerals required by the body for healthy cellular and complete metabolic function. Breast tissue, the uterus, the ovaries, the thyroid, the brain and the prostate depend on iodine. But typical intake levels for most people are not optimal.
Iodine supplementation can be life-changing!
In our family if we have been around crowds or plan to be around a lot of people we take Iodine supplementation. We also start taking iodine any time we have the slightest scratchy throat. Even if you think you have been around dust or your allergies may be acting up we have found that by fortifying our body with Iodine we decrease our risk of these things turning into an infection.
We have often seen in our family that if we start taking our iodine with we first feel a cold or flu coming on it will considerably decrease the length of time that we are sick. Instead of having a 2 week flu we may just have a 3 day flue.
I don’t mean to make any medical claims by sharing my story but just wanted to share why and how iodine supplementation has helped our family.Continue reading
Research collaborators have found 2 safe, effective and low-cost vitamins that help your respiratory tract when it is under attack.
These researchers are from all over the world.
Findings were published Thursday in the peer-reviewed journal Nutrients. (See additional info below)“Around the world, acute respiratory tract infections kill more than 2.5 million people every year,” Gombart said. “Meanwhile, there’s a wealth of data that shows the role that good nutrition plays in supporting the immune system.

The lens’ job is to make sure light rays reflected off the objects we’re trying to see come into sharp focus. The macula is highly sensitive portion of the retina, is also responsible for vital focusing vision.
When we use our eyes to drive, read a book or even gaze at a loved one, the macula is critically important. Together, these parts of your eyes are where visual acuity and sharpness, the true nature of clear sight, come together. And fortunately for us, nutritional science holds the key to supporting them.
With your eyes, it makes very little sense to play favorites. Don’t nourish your retinas with just Lutein alone, when your lenses need Vitamin C & Vitamin A. Don’t simply take antioxidants to combat free radicals when you need Ginkgo & Billberry to help support circulation to your eyes, so protection arrives when and where it’s needed. Every part of your eye needs nourishment, and that is why we made it our mission to include powerful nutrients that target each one, all in Eye Health.
Some formulas stop there but Eye Health goes further, with Vitamin E, which studies show helps maintain lens clarity. With N-Acetyl Cysteine, which boosts your body’s ability to produce glutathione, the principal protective compound found naturally in the eye. Quercetin, which supports lense transparency and clarity. For additional protection, we’ve added Quercetin, Eyebright, Selenium & Zinc, which together add another solid layer of protection and support.

Resveratrol is a phytoalexin, a class of compounds produced by many plants when they are infected by pathogens or physically harmed by cutting, crushing, or ultraviolet radiation.
Resveratrol has many health benefits but the simplest way to describe it as a supplement that nourishes the Mitochondria in the body. It seems to roll back the effects of aging on the cells.
Here are a few of the major things we covered in this video:
Pre-conditions the heart and brain from damage caused by strokes and heart attacks. Does this by raising the activity of heme-oxygenase, a protective antioxidant enzyme that is usually activated after heart attacks and strokes. This means individuals can sustain a heart attack or stroke and suffer small or no adverse consequences.*
Prevents blood clots that cause strokes and heart attacks by inhibiting the enzyme phosphoinositide 3-kinase.
Increases the activity of an enzyme called human endothelial nitric oxide synthase which then produces nitric oxide, an agent that widens blood vessels and controls blood pressure.*Continue reading
