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

Looking at the modern education system through the lens of ancestral evolution. Is it a mismatch?
Does the modern educational system match the way humans have naturally evolved to learn? Or is it a mismatch, just like the modern industrial diet? I discuss the problems of "industrialized education" with filmmaker Jeremy Stuart—and how unschooling might be a solution.

Not surprisingly, a growing body of evidence suggests that people with IBS have altered gut microbiota when compared to healthy controls.

Seems like every day we see a new study with a newly discovered mechanism of how antibiotics harm our gut and overall health. This study showed that antibiotics increase the availability of nutrients that benefit the growth of pathogens like Salmonella. Antibiotics have a place and can save lives, but should be used only when necessary.
A newly discovered mechanism helps explain how antibiotics change the gut microbiota, increasing nutrients that benefit the growth of pathogens, like Salmonella.

Several recent scientific reviews have examined the nutritional differences between organic and conventional meat. Read on to learn what the researchers found, if organic meat is really better, and what other factors you should consider when buying your next steak dinner.

Could it be that infants who take antibiotics before they are weaned lose some of the benefits that long-term breastfeeding provides? The study below seems to indicate a connection but more studies need to be done.

We’re told over and over again to eat our veggies, but what does the research actually say about how many servings of vegetables a day we should eat? What are all the relevant issues? Curious? Read on.

It’s a 30 billion dollar question - Is coffee good for me? While coffee is undoubtedly beneficial for some people, it may be harmful for others. Here’s why.
Numerous studies have linked drinking coffee with positive health effects like reduced risk of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. However, recent research suggests that the effects of coffee on health aren’t the same for everyone, and may depend on genetics and other factors.

Lowering our stress levels may be a simple as picking up a brush or pencil. The study below shows that making art, no matter how good (or bad) you are, can help reduce our stress hormone levels. http://bit.ly/291SL4l
No matter your skill level, creative endeavors can lower your cortisol levels.

This study, done on mice, may give women of childbearing age additional incentive to maintain a healthy weight and activity level.
Moms who are obese may put their children, grandchildren, and even great-grandchildren at risk for metabolic problems, a study with mice suggests.
