Did you grow up hearing that red meat, eggs and bacon raise your cholesterol levels? This idea is so deeply ingrained in our cultural psyche that few people even question it. Do you still believe it? Or maybe some of your family members? Read this post to bust the myth and learn how to talk to family and friends about it. Comment below if you’ve ever gotten that "you’re a health nut" stare when trying to talk about this in the past.
To read more about heart disease and cholesterol, check out the special report page. It’s hard to overstate the impact that cardiovascular disease (CVD) has in the U.S.. Consider the following: Car…

Sometimes you just want pancakes! After a lot of trial and error, I’ve finally come up with a guilt, gluten and grain free pancake recipe that everyone will love.

We’ve all heard of near-death experiences, but what is a near-life experience? I would define it as a life characterized by distraction, disconnection, and dissatisfaction. Read on for six ways that just might help you re-engage in life.

While both scientific research and my clinical experience suggest that in most cases five pathologies are the underlying cause of IBS , this study on Vitamin D (http://1.usa.gov/1WPFyAV) produced positive results for those participants receiving the supplement.

The problem is that so many people do not have access to a Functional Med doctor. What do they do? A step-by-step approach would certainly be beneficial to many, I'd think. I'm thankful I do not have these issues, but have certainly seen plenty of people with IBS and I'm only just starting residency this year! The problem is rampant. :(

Interesting. This study shows that the gut microbiome may become more diverse when you consume red wine or chocolate, in moderation of course.
Some scientists hope to use the microbes that live in our guts to diagnose and treat the diseases that seem to be linked to them.

This study, done on rats, seems to indicate that not achieving REM sleep may have a significant impact on our ability to make a memory. Comment below if you use a sleep tracker - tell us how your REM is and what you’ve done to improve it.
Scientists have long debated whether REM sleep—the phase in which we dream—is directly involved in memory formation. A new study suggests it is.

I have posted several articles lately on the importance social connection has in a healthy aging process. This study suggests ways we can physically design living environments and communities to support that.
An architect looked at communities that serve older adults, and didn't like what he saw. By changing habits earlier in life, he says, we can create vibrant communities that will sustain us.

Stress is the antithesis of pleasure: it feels unpleasant, raises heart rate and blood pressure, weakens the immune system, and makes people sick. And if stress is the antithesis of pleasure, it follows that one of the best ways to fight stress is with pleasure. - pg 260 - The Paleo Cure

Researchers and journalists with a more conventional medical perspective continue to ask questions and seek out evidence to better understand the root causes of chronic inflammation. (Sometimes drawing questionable conclusions as this article does by lumping saturated fats into the list of inflammatory foods.) For deeper look at how chronic inflammation and polyphenols are connected click here: https://chriskresser.com/do-polyphenols-improve-your-gut-bacteria/
Here are certain types of food that can help control our body's inflammatory response.

Wondering about the nutrient density of the food you are eating? Dr. Terry Wahls, author of The Wahls Protocol, has some good thoughts on what nutrient density is and how we might do a better job finding modern day nutrient dense foods.
You have likely heard my story: I have progressive multiple sclerosis and spent four years dependent upon a tilt-recline wheelchair. And you know that I used my own research to design a diet based on hunter-gatherer dietary principles and functional medicine that maximized the nutrition for my mitochondria and brain cells and achieved the unthinkable: …

This study, done on mice, is helping researchers begin to understand the “chain of events that occur within the gut after antibiotic treatment that allow ‘bad’ bugs to flourish.”
The chain of events that occur within the gut lumen after antibiotic treatment that allow 'bad' bugs to flourish is now better understood, thanks to new research.

I'm a health detective. I help people with chronic, complex illnesses who haven't been able to find help anywhere else. I'm a licensed acupuncturist by trade, but I specialize in what I call "investigative medicine". I use modern lab testing and detailed questionnaires to determine the underlying cause of health problems (rather than just suppressing symptoms), and supplements, herbs and nutritional therapy to treat them.

Very uninformed.. I'm concerned that you will be providing harmful information that will hurt the community. Very disconcerting that you would write about nutrition with no training and referencing other blogs instead of peer-reviewed and published studies.

Hi Dear Chris: I am very impress by the information you are sharing with us - the people suffering from IBS or other digestive problems. Since the last five years I have been having horrible diverticulatis flares, after reading your articles,and taking notes, I am ready to make the changes in my diet to be a healthy and happy human being. Thanks, Luz Daugherty
