I seldom use the term “obesity” in conversations with patients. Although “clinical obesity,” “morbid obesity,” and “overweight” are diagnosis codes that doctors use in notes, society has become too frivolous with those terms. They can easily be misconstrued as demeaning or judgmental. I talk about body composition. Part of body composition is body fat, along […]

When I mention toxification, and the need for detoxification, most people think of obesity and lack of energy. They think of bad skin and bad breath. They focus on how harmful toxins affect physical and nutritional health. The impact of toxification on the brain, however, is often overlooked, especially for children during their developmental years. […]

Two-thirds of all healthcare is devoted to chronic illnesses, like obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, osteoarthritis, and asthma. These conditions develop and worsen over a long period of time, typically more than six months. The other one-third of healthcare is devoted to traumatic injuries and acute conditions, like a broken bone, twisted ankle, stroke, […]

I recently treated a liquor store owner who said he’s having trouble maintaining inventory. He said people aren’t just coming in and picking up a few things. They’re clearing off his shelves. The better the weather, the more they’re buying. He’s been in business for 40 years and has never seen anything like it. He […]

I’ve had people ask me why I’m not posting videos on social media about how to exercise while staying at home. They ask why I’m not trying to sell more nutritional supplements. The reality is that COVID-19 hasn’t changed my vision for Natural Healthcare Center. For more than 30 years, I’ve been working to reverse […]

It’s a scientific fact that disease starts at the cellular level. Cancer and tumors are the result of abnormal cell division. Inflammation inside an artery that creates plaque is caused by unhealthy cells. How you feel and function is determined by the health of the 20-30 trillion cells in the human body. This is why […]

Behavioral economics kind of flies in the face of the traditional economics approach. This rational choice model is based on the notion that rational people make sound judgments by weighing costs, pros and cons. They have the self-control to stay on the right path to achieving their goals. I wish this was true, but it’s […]

One of the reasons why my role as a health educator is so difficult is that I constantly spend time exposing bad information when I’d rather be sharing good information. This blog post is a prime example of that dilemma. A member of the Natural Healthcare Center team forwarded me an article from an extremely […]

My wife, Stacy, and I were out enjoying a nice dinner a couple of months ago when a look of horror came over Stacy’s face. A man behind me passed out and fell backwards, and the back of his head slapped against the table, knocking him unconscious. Fortunately, this was not a life-threatening situation, although […]

Everyone knows that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Thousands of people in our local communities, and millions of people around the world, will be going on runs, walks and bike rides to raise money for breast cancer research and encourage women to have regular mammograms. Throughout the month, we’ll see pink ribbons everywhere. I […]
