This trailer is worth watching. Let’s pray for leadership in this country that gets this. Changing the way America eats, methodically removing refined sugar, hydrogenated oils, pesticide laden and GMO products, and over-processed high gluten flour from our food supply will make massive changes over the next century in our country in terms of healthcare (particularly chronic diseases and mental health disorders) and the economy. It will take a courageous leader or leadership group to see past the billions of dollars at stake by doing this, with a simple, long term, do-able plan of action, to realize the the return of healthier, happier people and a more robust self-sustaining economy in our country.

There were over 450 physicians, nurses and pharmacists that attended the doctor’s lecture this morning. Here are just a few comments from the doctors in attendance, as compiled by the continuing medical education (CME) provider:

Federal officials on Tuesday announced major changes in advice to pregnant and breastfeeding women by recommending consumption of at least 8 ounces of low-mercury fish per week.
It is the first time that the Environmental Protection Agency and Food and Drug Administration have issued recommendations on the minimum amount of fish that pregnant women and children should eat. The previous advisory, issued in 2004, included only maximum amounts to protect their fetuses and young children from mercury, which can harm developing brains and reduce IQs. Click here to read more.
That is a good step in the right direction. Now we need to be made aware of the levels of radioactive chemicals showing up in the fish as that is equally if not more concerning to human health.

I recently was a panelist at the American Association of University Women to discuss holistic approaches to women’s health, where I found myself talking a lot about purpose in life. What is the point of investing in your health, being proactive, and preventing health challenges down the road? The point is so that you can feel strong enough to fulfill your purpose(s) in life.
So, it was timely to see this new research study (NOT that we need to spend millions on research studies to prove what we all know intuitively) on the value of having a purpose in life. Click here to read more about the study that included 7,000 Americans, as published by the BBC News.
For some, one’s purpose in life is to go above and beyond the call of duty to improve our local community and the quality of life for children and their families. The Above and Beyond Awards gala does an excellent job of honoring those people, in the trenches, who are doing just that. The local Above and Beyond Awards gala is being held this June 21st, 2014 at the Wyndham Avenue of the Arts Hotel. Click here to register and please contact me at 949-715-9321 if you are interested or know someone who is interested in participating as a sponsor at the event. The list of honorees is impressive and learning about their tireless contributions is humbling and inspiring!

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. Read more here.

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.
