Who Qualified The Term “Organic”

Who Qualified The Term “Organic” In our world today there are so many fads….stainless steal water bottles, finger toed shoes, to our clothing and to what we drive. One of the largest “fads” that has taken over our world is the use of the term “organic” food. My goal of this blog is not to give you a history of organic food, what it is, soil health and how organic food is for you. My purpose is for you to understand that maybe what you are buying and eating, may not be so “organic” as you think:) What am I talking about…..Carrageenan! I first learned about this from the man, myth and legend Ray Peat PhD. First off, it seems the more and more I study Ray’s work and others like Lita Lee PhD, he seems to be WAY ahead of his time. He first wrote and article about Carrageen … Continue Reading

What The Hell Do You Mean I Should Not Eat Salad?

Lets face it…although we as humans are capable of eating everything that is presented to us as “healthy” does not mean that we are capable of digesting it. There is no faster way to alter human physiology then by altering the function of the GI system. Considering that we are nothing more then an open tube from mouth to anus, it can become very clear how simple it might be to alter this internal environment and leaving us more susceptible to the elements. We have to begin to recognize that it is the elements against us. Dirty air, dirty water and dirty soil are just a few reasons we are witnessing such a huge decline in health. It is these very things that disrupt the very systems  designed to protect us. The health of our GI system plays a huge role and dictates our level of health and vitality. It … Continue Reading

By Michael B. Schachter, MD, FACAM Introduction One of the most under diagnosed and important conditions in the United States has been called the “unsuspected illness” and accounts for a great number of complaints in children, adolescents, and adults.  This condition is an underactive thyroid system. What kinds of complaints characterize an underactive thyroid system?  Low energy and fatigue or tiredness, especially in the morning, is frequent in these patients. Difficulty losing weight, a sensation of coldness–especially of the hands and feet, depression, slowness of thought processes, headaches, swelling of the face or fluid retention in general, dry coarse skin, brittle nails, and chronic constipation are also common.  In women, menstrual problems–such as PMS and menstrual irregularities including heavy periods and fertility problems are further signs and symptoms.  People with an underactive thyroid may also have stiffness of joints, muscular cramps, shortness of breath on exertion, and chest pain.  Be … Continue Reading

Do I Need Iron if I am Anemic?

Don’t you need iron supplements if you are anemic? In general, no! •    Many doctors think of anemia as necessarily indicating an iron deficiency, but that isn’t correct. 100 years ago, it was customary to prescribe arsenic for anemia, and it worked to stimulate the formation of more red blood cells. The fact that arsenic, or iron, or other toxic material stimulates the formation of red blood cells doesn’t indicate a “deficiency” of the toxin, but simply indicates that the body responds to a variety of harmful factors by speeding its production of blood cells. Even radiation can have this kind of stimulating effect, because growth is a natural reaction to injury. Between 1920 and 1950, it was common to think of “nutritional growth factors” as being the same as vitamins, but since then it has become common to use known toxins to stimulate the growth of farm animals, and … Continue Reading

Do You Have Stomach Pains?

Carageenan is a “natural” polysaccharide substance that is pulled from red seaweed. Just like MSG is pulled from brown rice! According the FDA, it is safe to put in foods like soy milk, ice cream, beer, hot dogs, milk, lotions, toothpaste, etc, etc because the particles are too big for our guts to absorb. Well according to many authors, these food particles are not to large for us to absorb, as well as interact with our bacteria in our gut in an inflammatory manner. Carageenan will create inflammation in the gut, thus allowing large and small food particles to slip through the intestine, causing an immune system reaction which can lead to mucous build up (secondary to a histamine reaction) in the throat, nose, gut and more. Once the inflammatory cycle is initiated, you will get a release of adrenal, cortisol, prolactin and estrogen which all not only “fight” to … Continue Reading
