I was discussing the underlying causes of Alzheimer’s disease with a colleague today, while at RoxSpa Newport Beach, and came across this article, also posted today, making the association between the pesticide DDT and the production of amyloid plaques in Alzheimer’s patients. Though DDT was banned from use in the US in 1972, other countries continue to use it and consequently the chemical still finds its way into our cells. I’ve taught physicians about the association between DDT and breast cancer in continuing medical education lectures through the American College for Advancement in Medicine and the American Nutraceutical Association over the years but this is the first reference I’ve seen making a possible connection to this pesticide’s detrimental effects on the brain.

Autoimmune reactions to the thyroid gland go largely undetected and cause many deleterious health effects including unexplained fatigue, weight gain, infertility and depression. There are an estimated 13 million Americans each year that have this treatable condition that go undiagnosed and needlessly suffer. And I predict that this number will rise dramatically, as we are exposed to more radiation and environmental toxins then ever before. Click here for a recent article on this topic published in the Journal of the Association for the Advancement of Restorative Medicine. I have given lectures for thousands of physicians over the years on ways to properly diagnose and treat this condition, and hopefully their patients are benefiting from the training. Our patients experience “miraculous” health benefits from proper treatment using prescription natural thyroid medication and simple diet and lifestyle changes. Their depression lifts, weight is no longer an issue, and energy levels rise.
Here’s to a healthy new you in the new year!

Millions of people worldwide suffer with infertility and recurrent miscarriage and in thousands of unexplained cases, hypothyroidism may be the underlying cause. The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists has warned that 1 in 10 Americans suffer from thyroid disease. Despite this staggering statistic, half of patients remain undiagnosed. Many of these people will be in their childbearing years. Click here to read more about a news release on this topic.
What most doctors do not know is that the timing of when you test for and treat thyroid in pregnancy is crucial in preventing miscarriage. The type of thyroid treatment is also essential to a healthy outcome.
I will be giving a talk in our medical practice on Wed January 29th at 6:30PM on integrative medical options for fertility, and how to test for, and treat, thyroid imabalances throughout pregnancy.

Most doctors are familiar with the importance of a healthy diet for a woman of childbearing age, however here is a new study revealing that the father’s diet before conception also plays an important role in producing a healthy baby.
Click here to read about this study.
At HealthBridge Medical Center our concierge program for fertility involves testing the father and the mother-to-be for deficiencies (nutrient and hormone) that impact the ability to conceive, and affect the health and vitality of the baby-to-be. There are very often simple steps you can take to provide your present and future children with a healthier life.

New research from Karolinska Institute in Sweden shows that omega-3 fatty acids in dietary supplements can cross the blood brain barrier in people with Alzheimer’s disease, affecting known markers for both the disease itself and inflammation. The findings are presented in theJournal of Internal Medicine, and strengthen the evidence that omega-3 may benefit certain forms of this seriously debilitating disease. Click here to read more.
This is yet another published study that demonstrates how proper fatty acid balance in the blood stream can prevent and treat diseases with an inflammatory component. The research to date points to benefit of the essential fatty acids in the following conditions:
- Endocrine influence
- Glucose maintenance
- Lipids and triglycerides
- Metabolic parameters
- Primary prevention
- Secondary prevention
Children’s Health and Development
- Adolescent and teen health
- ASD – Autism spectrum disorders
- Attention, learning, and behavior
- Disease prevention
- Neurological development
Female Health and Reproduction
- Peri-and post-menopause
- Pregnancy & breastfeeding
- Puberty and menstrual years
- Acute infections
- Chronic immune deficiencies
Joint and Tissue Inflammation
- Intestinal health
- Joint flexibility & mobility
Lifestyle and Healthy Living
- Alcohol and tobacco use
- Body fat/weight
- Healthful living
- CNS Developement
- Cognitive function/agent
- Depression and mood
- Mental balance
In our concierge medical practice we test the blood for over 30 fatty acids to identify what specifically is out of balance and needs treatment. In some patients, too many of the omega 3 fatty acids can suppress important components of immune function and can promote tumor growth. In some patients their level of trans fatty acids (hydrogenated fats) are the culprit in blocking cell to cell communication. Other patients may only need DHA but not GLA. And so forth. This is why testing, and getting an individualized report on what your body needs, will lead to a more positive outcome in terms of managing your long term health.
