Dr. Krupka discusses cardiovascular risks post covid shot and some common sense ways to minimize the impact on your health. From a functional medicine standpoint, supporting your body’s natural ability to clear clots, plaques, and inflammation from your system is especially important after an intervention that causes you to produce spike protein…sometimes in massive amounts.
(00:01): I had a question come up from a patient. She reached out to me. She doesn't live in the state of Texas anymore. And of course we feel sorry for her for that, but she was a patient of mine back when I first started, so it was nice to connect with her again. She has a son who's in his mid-teens and wants to put on some muscle mass. That's not an uncommon question in my office, so I figured I'd handle it in this format. They could benefit from it. And so could anybody else who's got a son early to mid-teens who feels the need to add some muscle mass. So I'm gonna kind of rapid fire, go through some important points, or a question was specifically about like an eating approach or a dietary pattern that would be beneficial for this.
(00:45): Um, but I'm gonna kind of broaden it out a little bit and that way it works better in this forum. So first of all, why would, why would someone that age want to add muscle? Obviously, aesthetics is, is a common goal, right? You wanna look a...

Hi everyone. Unless you've been living under a rock you've heard a lot about curcumin or turmeric lately. It's apparently good for everything. I'm going to talk about it today.
Interesting article here. This one is from a journal called Complimentary Therapies in Medicine in August of 2017 and this is about curcumin's effect on basically parts of the cholesterol panel in type two diabetics. Now, type two diabetics are notorious for having high triglycerides and high markers that would indicate their risk for heart disease. Heart attack, stroke, those kinds of things.
So being able to make a difference in that is substantial. I've done a few blog posts in the past few weeks about how to change type two diabetes. That's probably the bigger problem and one of the approaches that needs to be instituted in people like this. However, in the meantime, or in patients who refuse or their doctor tells them they can't fast or whatever, this is an option.
So in this study, they were looking at...
In the past couple of weeks I've done blog posts related to blood sugar issues. Did one on kind of a new thought process around blood sugar and Type 2 Diabetes. Not so new to us. We talked about that in the blog post. And then I did one a little while back on Intermittent versus Episodic Fasting. After listening to what I say today you might want to go back and review those blog posts because they're applicable to this.

[Intermittent & Episodic Fasting]
Today I'm talking ... I'm back to holding paper again. If you go back, I don't know a year or so, I did the newscaster thing like this where I hold paper. Anyway, talking about a case report in the British Medical Journal. This was back in 2018. The title so that if you want to pull it up you can, title of the article in the British Medical Journal was “Therapeutic Use of Intermittent Fasting for People With Type 2 Diabetes as an Alternative to...
Back in 2015, not too long ago, in a medical journal called Diabetes…aptly named. There was a research article that just recently came across my desk. The lead author's last name was Nolan and N-O-L-A-N if you want to look it up. The article was basically discussing what they present as a new concept that maybe with type 2 diabetes or insulin resistance, maybe the insulin resistance itself is not the enemy. That's a pretty new concept in conventional medicine. So what they lay out is for the worst cases of type 2 diabetes, the ones that don't respond well to medications, they're obese, they've got substantial insulin resistance...in those cases, maybe we should rethink focusing on insulin resistance as the enemy. So let me find a way to describe this to you that will make some sense. Basically in type 2 diabetes, we have sugar entering the body, then sugar gets in the bloodstream than sugar has to go from the bloodstream into the cells.
There's this cell...
In light of the war over your choice for medical procedures these days, I am releasing a video that was used as bonus material in my Breast Cancer video course. I wanted to make this particular video available to as many people as possible to help all of you understand some of the problems when someone decides what's "real" or "established" or "settled" science these days.
When Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest is going to "filter out misinformation" to protect you from making ill-informed decisions...they are looking to "established medical science" from the very machine that produces, sells, and profits from these soon-to-be-mandated medical procedures. Please be aware of some of the games they play when they create the "established" science that will be solely accepted as truth.
You are about to have a situation in which massively powerful companies, protected from any liability for their product, will have the government mandate that you consume their...
Hi, everyone. I had a patient question the other day, yesterday, as a matter of fact, about what I do, or what my family does, for cold and flu season. They made the comment, "You never seem to get sick. What do you do for cold and flu season?" (Check out last year's flu season post here!)
I wouldn't say that we never get sick. We get sick, hopefully not as often as we used to, but my wife's an elementary school teacher, my son's in junior high, and I'm in a practice where I see sick patients from time to time. So we're exposed. No way around that. So every once in a while we get something. It usually doesn't last long, it's pretty mild, and we get past it. But I thought it was a really valid question. I answered it for the patient, but I figured I'd answer it for everybody here.
What do I do? Now I'm not saying that what we do is right for everybody, so don't misunderstand me. But I am going to talk a little bit about what we do at our house. We start "cold and flu season", fall...
