The research I’m citing today was published by Dr. Jane Ballantyne in 2017. Dr. Ballantyne is a physician and professor of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine at the University of Washington.  Her review paper addresses the prescription opioid drug epidemic that has crept into society since the late 1990’s. To paint the picture, there are now 2,000 deaths per year in ...

It may be hard to believe, but after age 40 our bodies are actually designed to undergo decline, decay and degeneration setting us up for crippling degenerative arthritis, osteoporotic fractures, angina, heart disease, congestive heart failure, powerful infections, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, macular degeneration, cataracts, and cancer. Although a healthy diet and exercise program play an important role in disease ...

Although clinical trials published in peer-reviewed scientific journals are lacking, many holistic practitioners have documented improvement in patients who have a constellation of stress-related symptoms, after providing them with oral agents that support thyroid and adrenal function. Dating back to the work of stress researcher Hans Selye, health practitioners have been aware that chronic stress often results in over secretion of ...

Recent research studies confirms data findings of previous investigations, indicating that the synergistic action of essential fatty acids, richly supplied by flaxseed oil, borage seeed oil and fish oil, encourage the production of eicosanoids (mini-local hormones) that help defend the body against heart attack, stroke (and other cardiovascular diseases), control blood pressure, reduce joint inflammation, support brain function and reduce ...

In recent years, many women across North America have demonstrated a reluctance to rely upon hormone replacement therapy (HRT) as a means to reduce menopausal symptoms, due primarily to concerns about the potential risk of breast cancer. In fact, only about 20% of women who are given a prescription for HRT actually follow through and take it faithfully. A growing ...

Osteoarthritis has been reported to affect 40 million Americans, with 80% of individuals over the age of fifty affected to some degree.(1) Essentially, osteoarthritis is considered to be an age-related affliction. As a contributing factor to the development of osteoarthritis, is the apparent age-related decline in glucosamine sulfate synthesis by the body, which appears to become pronounced by 45 to ...

Our topic today is how saturated fat promotes inflammation. We know that chronic inflammation plays a key role in promoting and worsening arthritic conditions and autoimmune diseases, as well as cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease and cancer. In my own clinical practice, it became very apparent that a person’s diet and lifestyle played an important role in the inflammatory process. People ...
