Make 2017 your best year yet. Here’s how following a Paleo diet can help you feel younger, sexier and more vibrant.
You probably discovered the Paleo diet because you wanted to improve your health and/or lose weight. But wouldn’t it be great if it also made you look like a younger, sexier, and more vibrant versi…

As medical marijuana becomes legal in more states, it’s worth the research time to explore the potential benefits of this non-addictive drug. Last fall I wrote an article on four promising uses for medical marijuana (http://bit.ly/2jmqyx4), the research below adds more.

Unfortunately, even when it's legal - you have to find healthcare that applied for the license - if you can afford it. As usual, the privileged get the best healthcare.

A thoughtful, thorough and comprehensive review of the benefits of eating “real” food and a no-nonsense response to critics of ancestral diets like Paleo. Share this far and wide.
It’s that time of year. Everyone is looking to make changes to their diet, and US News and World Report published its Best Diet Rankings for 2017. And once again, the Paleo Diet ranked very poorly and in last place was Whole30. In first place is the DASH diet, originally developed to prevent and lower …

Not surprising - this study found that patients with IBS were more genetically predisposed to have factors that lead to celiac disease.

It can be difficult to sleep soundly while pregnant but if the study below is correct, getting 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night may help prevent gestational diabetes. “Our results raise the possibility that good sleep habits could reduce the likelihood of developing hyperglycemia and gestational diabetes mellitus,” says Gooley, senior author of the paper in SLEEP and member of the neuroscience and behavioral disorders program at Duke-NUS.
A new study links short sleep at night during pregnancy and gestational diabetes, which can result in complications for both mother and baby.

More studies are needed but given that we already know PPI’s alter the gut, impair nutrient absorption, increase the risk of cardiovascular events and stroke, increase the risk of chronic kidney disease and negatively affect cognitive function – avoiding them while pregnant would seem the prudent thing to do.
Children born to mothers who take heartburn medication during pregnancy may have a greater risk of developing asthma, research suggests. Advice for expectant moms should not change based on these findings, the researchers say, but further studies are needed.

If exercising more is on your new year’s resolution list, here are five of the best ways to get physical that don’t require a gym.
If you're not an athlete or serious exerciser — and you just want to work out for your health or to fit in your clothes better — the gym scene can be intimidating. Just having to walk by treadmills, stationary bikes, and weight machines can be enough...

Catchy media headlines often poke fun at gluten sensitivity and a considerable percentage of the population, including many doctors, still don't believe that non-celiac gluten sensitivity is real. Yet many people without celiac disease feel better with a gluten-free diet. A recent study may have settled the debate once and for all.

Previous studies found an association between consumption of probiotics and improved serum lipid profiles. How and why that works is the subject of the research below. “The regular consumption of probiotic bacteria and yeast, as a non-pharmaceutical approach to help manage cardiovascular risk, holds promise.”

My earlier post today cited a study that found rates of celiac disease were more prevalent in those with IBS. Given that IBS affects 15% of the U.S. population, here are few more causes your doctor may not be looking for.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) affects 15 percent of the U.S. population and is the second leading cause of missed work (behind only the common cold), but conventional treatments are ineffective because they only address the symptoms. Find out what really causes IBS so you can get well and stay well without unnecessary drugs.

Didn't think it would mention wheat, but they did... Check Dr. William Davis, he really nails it about the most modified food on Earth; wheat and the effects on society.

In case you missed my post this week on treating viral pneumonia and other infections - here it is again.
Pneumonia is a difficult illness at best—and it’s a frightening one when it strikes an elderly family member. This hit close to home with me recently after my father developed pneumonia during a hospital stay. In today’s podcast, I discuss the botanical treatments I used to get him back to health quickly.

There are few things more important to health than a good night's sleep. A large body of evidence suggests that most people require seven to nine hours of sleep each night for optimal function and prevention of disease. Pg. 227 - The Paleo Cure
