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 ...

Studies indicate that a strong immune system is a key factor in preventing cancer and reducing susceptibility to infection by viruses, bacteria and other micro-organisms. As well, the ability to effectively neutralize various toxins and other contaminants through a sound functioning detoxification system is also vital to long term survival and the expression of optimal health. In today’s world we ...

In this edition, I want to cite some statistics regarding diabetes and prediabetes that I think are very compelling. Let’s remember that 90% of diabetics have type2 diabetes and that 80% of individuals with type 2 diabetes are overweight at the time of diagnosis. We know that being overweight and out of shape causes insulin resistance to occur, which is ...

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 ...

The research study showed that regular consumption of caffeinated coffee may help prevent the return of colon cancer after treatment and improve the chances of a cure. The study included nearly 1,000 colon cancer patients who filled out dietary questionnaires early in the study, during chemotherapy and again about a year later. The patients who drank 4 or more cups ...

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 ...
