Complementary and Integrative Approaches for ADHD
Surveys estimate that as many as 9 percent of American children and 4 percent of adults have attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Although stimulant medications have been shown to be helpful for at least 70 percent of children with ADHD, many people have turned to complementary health approaches such as omega-3 fatty acids, melatonin, herbs and other dietary supplements, special diets, neurofeedback, and several mind and body practices, including acupuncture and meditation. Many of these complementary health approaches have been studied for ADHD, but none has been conclusively shown to be helpful. This issue ...

Super Nutrient’s Liver Surprise
I was one of the first doctors to talk about the incredible benefits of the super-nutrient pyrroloquinoline quinone, or PQQ for short. I was also one of the first doctors to recommend it to patients. Now I recommend this essential nutrient and powerful antioxidant to almost everyone who comes to see me at my wellness clinic. Researchers have only just recently begun to understand the many important roles of PQQ on the body’s cellular processes. Not only does it possess extraordinary energy-giving qualities and have the power to ease nerve pain and battle Alzheimer’s, it has the potential to become the world’s stronge...

Cognitive behavioral therapy offers a drug-free method for managing insomnia
Bleary-eyed insomniacs know all too well that problems with sleep aren’t limited to nighttime hours. In fact, people who have trouble falling or staying asleep often feel crummy all day long. Many people with insomnia turn to sleeping pills, which often have unwanted side effects. Few of them know about an equally effective therapy that targets the root cause of insomnia without medications. Called cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia, or CBT-i, this short-term talk therapy teaches people to change the unproductive thinking patterns and habits that get in the way of a good night’s sleep. While this therapy...

Give Your Manhood A Sporting Chance
I went to a sporting goods store with my son last weekend and found it pretty much impossible to buy him a sports jersey that wouldn’t poison him with gender-bending chemicals. Almost everything these days is made of synthetic material or some new "techno" fiber that "wicks away moisture." It took me half an hour to find something made from real cotton. But here’s the problem… those hi-tech materials are full of nasty and dangerous chemicals.

Supplements That Save Lives And Bucks
I’m sure I don’t have to tell you about the high cost of medical care these days. The fact is that as costs continue to skyrocket, more and more Americans are driven into bankruptcy, because they cannot pay their medical bills. Too often, they even lose their homes. You may have even lost a neighbor to this disturbing trend. It may have even happened to you – although, I certainly hope not. That’s one reason I have always dedicated myself to keeping my patients out of hospitals – which often see patients as cash cows, instead of human beings. And a cornerstone of this philosophy has been based upon pr...

The Anti-Aging Secret Of Sunshine
Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon and his band of conquistadors is said to have marched all over sunny, subtropical Florida nearly 500 years ago in search of the Fountain of Youth. Ironically, he may even have marched right past the spot where my anti-aging clinic now stands. Of course, Ponce de Leon knew absolutely nothing about telomeres. But if he and his men had taken off their armor and enjoyed a little sun-bathing, they would have done something equivalent to diving head-first into those youth-returning waters. That’s because the real secret to youth isn’t hidden in a legendary fountain. It’s already p...

All Men Should Avoid This Diet…
Most doctors will tell you to avoid unhealthy crash diets. It’s not rocket science. Desperate weight-loss tactics, such as skipping meals, extreme low-calorie diets or taking strenuous exercise with little fuel in your body, are perhaps the most useless ways of trying to get back into shape. That’s because if you repeatedly gain and lose weight you will end up with a slower metabolism, which makes it easier for your body to gain weight and harder to lose it in the future. I see many victims of crash dieting in my wellness clinic – and in a minute I’m going to reveal a great Italian secret to losing weig...

4 Easy Ways To Beat Aging
I’ve been hearing it nearly all of my life: Save your money for your “old age.” I’m sure that well-meaning friends and relatives have been telling you the same thing for years, too. But more than 2,100 years ago, the Roman philosopher Virgil hit the nail on the head when he said: “The greatest wealth is health.” And these aren’t just fancy words of philosophical wisdom. They are very good practical advice. You should be saving something much more important than money – no matter what your age. I’m talking about saving your telomeres, those tiny “countdown clocks”...

Beware The Tea You Sip
Green tea has become the beverage of choice for people who want to live a long, healthy life. And the latest studies prove its power to fight cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and a host of other ills. But as usual, Big Food has jumped on the bandwagon to make money by hawking poor-quality tea in pretty bottles. In their relentless drive for profit, drink makers have churned out dozens of brands of bottled green tea with the aim of cashing in on the beverage’s reputed healing power. The trouble is that almost all of these teas are a waste of good water – because Big Food’s processing has stripped of most powe...

An Anthropological Approach To California's Vaccination Problem
By Tom Jacobs As we were reminded during California's recent measles outbreak, a surprising number of well-educated people decide each year not to have their children immunized against an array of communicable diseases. Trying to discern why they make this dangerous decision is a priority for public health officials, and a perplexing puzzle to the rest of us. Newly published research shows that cultural anthropology can both help us understand their thinking, and suggest ways of productively communicating the importance of vaccination.
