This post contains VERY important information for people who have had radiation therapy for cancer and especially for
women who have had radiation therapy for breast cancer. In 2016, over 3
million cancer survivors were treated with radiation and that number is
expected to increase to over 4 million radiation-treated cancer patients per year by 2030. Women with breast cancer
are the largest group, accounting for 40% of all cancer patients that receive radiation therapy.
Please pass this message on to anyone you know that has received
radiation therapy and especially to women who are breast cancer
survivors. Please help support women's health and help make this educational message “go viral.”
It is an established fact that radiation treatments for cancer damage neighboring tissues. The primary “collateral” damage that is inflicted on the surrounding tissues is done to thousands of very small (micro-capillary) blood vessels in the adjacent area.

In a recent study titled A review of probiotic supplementation in healthy adults: helpful or hype? the authors reviewed 45 clinical trials on the use of probiotics in healthy adults published between 1990 and 2017. The results revealed that taking probiotics regularly can help healthy people become even healthier. Read more
Coenzyme Q10 is a nutritional supplement is a very effective natural therapy to lower elevated blood pressure. In this blog post, I am going to summarize a study that demonstrates just how amazingly effective coenzyme Q10 is for people with hypertension.
Dr. Peter Langsjoen is a cardiologist that I met about a decade ago and I have followed his work very closely ever since. Since Dr. Langsjoen is a cardiologist, he has a lot of patients with high blood pressure. A number of years ago, he selected 109 of his patients with hypertension and added coenzyme Q10 to their existing medications. The average dose used was 225 mg/day. In most of these patients, the average time from the initial of diagnosis of high blood pressure was 9.2 years. Many patients were taking 2 or 3 blood pressure-lowering medications to keep their blood pressure within acceptable ranges.
How effective was coenzyme Q10? Within the first 6 months, 51% of the patients were able to discontinue from 1 to 3 blood pressure medications, with an average time of 4.4 months.
As a pharmacist, I have to be cautious about recommending CoQ10 to patients who are taking blood pressure medications. I emphasize that they must communicate with their physician because coenzyme Q10 is so effective, they will need to reduce the dose of their medications and/or discontinue them at some point. It is illegal for me to advise people about changing the dose of their medications. That must be done by a physician. However, I feel my passion is to educate people about natural therapies so I share this study and encourage them to discuss it with their doctor.
The title of the study I have discussed is Treatment of Essential Hypertension with Coenzyme Q10.
Every household should have DMSO on hand. DMSO, which is available as a liquid or in a rub-on gel, is a miracle treatment for all kinds injuries. Trainers of most athletic teams are aware of DMSO's ability to rapidly heal sports injuries and I've been using it personally for over 30 years. I introduced DMSO to the owner/coach of my CrossFit gym a couple of years ago and he immediately began using it on athletes with minor aches and pains. My blog gives me the opportunity to publicize the many benefits of DMSO to a much wider audience. So, here is the DMSO story. Read more
In October 2014 I spoke at the ACAM medical/health conference in Las
Vegas. In the exhibit hall, I spoke with Brad Weeks, MD at a booth who
was promoting a natural anti-inflammatory, pain relieving product called
SOUL. Dr. Weeks gave me a sample of SOUL and told me about the
product's benefits. I told Dr. Weeks that I am a "science-based guy" and
that I wanted to see scientific studies that would document the
product's claimed benefits. Well, it turns out a large number of
scientific studies that have been published which document and explain
the benefits of SOUL. After reading and evaluating over 80 studies on
SOUL and its ingredients, I'm convinced that it is a very effective
natural product for the relief of pain and inflammation. In this post, I
want to explain why the traditional anti-inflammatory and pain
medications are so terribly harmful and then review SOUL's benefits and
explain how and why it works.Read more
Biomarkers by William Evans, Ph.D. and Irwin Rosenberg, MD is one of the most important
books I have ever read. The authors present 10 of the most reliable biological markers of aging and show that all ten of these markers are directly regulated by muscle mass. Weight training or strength/resistance training is the key. The authors claim that people do not need to become frail and weak as they age. They have shown that people of any age can engage in strength training programs and significantly REVERSE the biological markers of aging.Read more

L-theanine is herbal compound that occurs naturally in tea leaves. It has been shown to be an amazingly effective, fast acting anti-anxiety agent. Research on human volunteers has reveals that L-theanine works in several different ways to produce a sense of relaxation within approximately 20 to 40 minutes after ingestion. Theanine’s anti-anxiety effects also help many people with insomnia get to sleep faster. Read more
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is
one of the body's most important antioxidants and it is also required
for energy production in all cells. In this post, I will review a study
that reveals coenzyme Q10's remarkable ability to slow down the aging
process. Coenzyme Q10 is truly a remarkable life extension nutritional
supplement. I will also explain why most CoQ10 products have very low
rates of absorption. My readers can order highly absorable Bio-Quinone Q10 Gold at 20% discount.
CoQ10 Dramatically Extends Life Span: Studies
evaluating things that influence lifespan are difficult to conduct in
humans because they take too long. Instead, researchers use small animal
models which compresses the story into a much shorter time scale. I
want to discuss an experiment done with mice that reveals the power of
coenzyme Q10. This experiment was conducted by Emile Bliznakov, MD who
subsequently wrote a book titled The Miracle Nutrient: Coenzyme Q10.
