Heart disease, saturated fat, cholesterol, new opinions


Hi everyone, all right today I want to take a minute and talk to you about an article that I just recently came across. This one is from the British Medical Journal, and it's titled, "Saturated Fat Does not Clog the Arteries. Coronary heart disease is a chronic inflammatory condition, the risk of which can be effectively reduced from healthy lifestyle interventions".

          Now, to most of my patients, that's not a big surprise, but it's nice to see it actually written openly in something a prestigious as the British Medical Journal. So, when we look at this, I'm gonna go through a couple of quotes from this, this is from ... Oh gosh, now I'm going to butcher their names, Haseem Malotra, Rita Redburg, and Pascal Meyer. So if you want to look it up, this is November 24th, 2017 in the British Medical Journal.

        Okay. So, as we look through this: To spite popular belief among doctors and the public, the conceptual model of dietary...

Uncategorized Nov 27, 2018

Hey, guys. All right, so today's article that I'm going to talk about has to do with brain degenerating diseases or conditions, and the effect that infrared light can have on it. Let me give you the reference for the article so you can go find it. I want to make sure the authors get credit for this. It's another interesting one I read that I wanted to discuss with you.

Zinc and recovery from TBI / Concussion

Uncategorized Nov 27, 2018

Hi everyone, today's article that we're dealing with ... little bit different where it came from. This actually came from a supplement company that I deal with. One of their authors had written it. But the title is "New Study Demonstrates Zinc Supplementation Improves Clinical Outcomes from Traumatic Brain Injury", or TBI. A concussion as most of us older people would call it. This was posted back on May 5th of 2017. So, any way, I just wanted to talk about a couple things. The study that this article was written about was published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements back in the very beginning of May. The study included 100 participants with severe head trauma, ranging from 18 to 65 years of age. So they had a nice broad spectrum of age ranges. It would have been very interesting if they had enough people to use in the study to divide it into like 30 and under and over 30. But, any way, this ranged from 18 to 65.

Avoiding Flu & Cold This Season; A Functional Medicine Approach

Uncategorized Nov 27, 2018

In Houston right now we are kind of in the throws of cold and flu season. School districts are starting to send out notices to parents, keep your kids home if they any signs of having the flu, if they've got fever or chills or nausea, keep 'em home, don't send 'em to school. There's always that temptation to send them because otherwise you've got to arrange child care and you've got to take the day off.

         Once you see those notices coming out, you know that the school districts are seeing significant numbers of kids having the flu, or being absent, whichever. That's going on here where several of the districts around here have noticed that. So we're starting to see people in here, I'm starting to get the emails and the phone calls, "How in the world can I not get the flu?"...
