No Bull: The Basic Science of Why Grass Fed Beef is Better

Grass-fed beef, because they are not finished on corn full of omega-6 fatty acids, will be better for you than conventionally produced beef. Grass-fed beef actually contains omega-3 fats from the grass, though not in as much quantity as you would get in a cold-water fish.  This is a short but informative article about the benefits of grass-fed beef by Carolyn M. Matthews, M.D.

Sugar and Fungus

A 35-year-old recently walked into my office suffering from a whole list of health problems.  She had chronic fatigue, recurrent yeast vaginal infections, itchy ears, dandruff, patchy itchy skin rashes, irritable bowel syndrome, muscle twitching, acne rosacea, malabsorption, headaches, and more.

The Truth About Dry Cat Food

Dry food — kibble — is the worst possible food you can feed to your cat.  It is a moneymaking venture of pet food manufacturers that is leading to horrible chronic disease in cats.  It is marketed as a product that is 100 percent nutritionally complete for all stages of your cat's life.  That couldn't be further from the truth.  This story is the truth.

Herxheimer Reaction

This is a normal - and even healthy - reaction that indicates that parasites, fungi, viruses, bacteria or other pathogens are being effectively killed off. The "additional reading" links below describe the symptoms of "die off" and why it occurs. This is especially true with fungal infestations. When a fungus dies it spews out mycotoxins that make the current symptoms of disease even worse. The cure can only happen after the fact. So it's like an addict ending an addiction. You can't get there without going through the process.

This resource contains more than 40 peer-reviewed, published research reports.  For example, the abstract for one reads like this:  Both anthropologists and nutritionists have long recognized that the diets of modern-day hunter-gatherers may represent a reference standard for modern human nutrition and a model for defense against certain diseases of affluence.

The Paleo Diet

Zookeepers learned long ago that in order for an animal not just to exist but to thrive, be healthy and reproduce in captivity, it was necessary to replicate as closely as possible in the zoo the animal's natural habitat.  Part of that requirement was diet.  This well-written article explains the Paleo approach to diet by Dr. Loren Cordain, a member of the faculty of the Department of Health and Exercise Science at Colorado State University.

Vital Role of Essential Fatty Acids For Pregnant and Nursing Women

by John Finnegan

Recently it has been discovered that the Omega-3 fats are necessary for the complete development of the human brain during pregnancy and the first two years of life.  The Omega-3 fat and its derivative, DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), is so essential to a child's development that if a mother and infant are deficient in it, the child's nervous system and immune system may never fully develop, and it can cause a lifetime of unexplained emotional, learning, and immune system disorders.
