Credit: Saint Louis University Research from Saint Louis University finds that high fat or “ketogenic” diets could completely prevent, or even reverse heart failure caused by a metabolic process. The research team, led by Kyle S. McCommis, Ph.D., assistant professor in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at SLU, looked at a metabolic process that seems to be turned down in failing human hearts. In an animal model, drastic heart failure in mice was bypassed by switching to high fat or “ketogenic” diets, which could […]

As A Functional Medicine Expert, This Is The Greens Powder I Use

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Like any woman who has newly learned she is pregnant (or, at least, I think this is a common sentiment?) I became immediately protective over what I put in my belly. But with the nausea, headaches, fatigue, and hellish rollercoaster of a first trimester, all I was able to stomach was yogurt, mac and cheese, cheese, and grilled cheese (you can pick up a theme here). I was positive my baby was going to come out looking like a wheel of brie.  So I tried eating a salad one day. I vomited that right up. Then some cooked broccoli. Not […]

CDC Study Finds Overwhelming Majority Of People Getting Coronavirus Wore Masks

by health and nutrition advice journalist
A Centers for Disease Control report released in September shows that masks and face coverings are not effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19, even for those people who consistently wear them. A study conducted in the United States in July found that when they compared 154 “case-patients,” who tested positive for COVID-19, to a control group of 160 participants from the same health care facility who were symptomatic but tested negative, over 70 percent of the case-patients were contaminated with the virus and fell ill despite “always” wearing a mask. “In the 14 days before illness onset, 71% of […]

CDC Can’t Operate A Stick Shift | Sanctuary Functional Medicine

by health and nutrition advice journalist
The long-standing debate between automatics and stick shifts in cars has taken a whole new twist as the nation’s health experts at the CDC can’t seem to choose “drive” or “reverse” as they release guidance on various aspects of their COVID 19 response. Two articles from Medscape highlight this inability to avoid appearing like a 16 year old trying to drive a stick shift for the first time.  The car lurches backwards and forwards in fits and starts and loud noises.  The CDC likewise has lurched back and forth between different assertions and recommendations.  It’s a wonder that we are […]

The Underrated Anti-Inflammatory Nutrient That Will Help You Live Longer, According to a Functional Medicine Doctor

by health and nutrition advice journalist
As one of the top functional medicine doctors in the country, Frank Lipman, MD, is asked a wide range of health-related questions every single day. Sometimes they’re tied to something specific trending in the wellness space: Is collagen overrated? (Nope.) Is oat milk? (Possibly.) Other times, it’s about how to get a better night’s sleep. But all the queries seem to be rooted in an even bigger question: how to live a long, healthy life. Longevity seems to be at the heart of every question he’s asked, so Dr. Lipman decided to write a whole book dedicated to the topic: […]

Coronavirus: WHO joins the Great Barrington Declaration by condemning lockdowns

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Dr. David Nabarro from the WHO appealed to world leaders yesterday, telling them to stop “using lockdowns as your primary control method” of the coronavirus. He also claimed that the only thing lockdowns achieved was poverty – with no mention of the potential lives saved. “Lockdowns just have one consequence that you must never ever belittle, and that is making poor people an awful lot poorer,” he said.

Diabetes drug Metformin recalled due to high level of cancer agent

by health and nutrition advice journalist
The diabetes drug Metformin hydrochloride has been recalled because it contains excess levels of a cancer-causing agent, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced this week. The drug’s manufacturer, Marksans Pharma Limited, has expanded a recall initially announced in June to now include an additional 76 unexpired lots of the medication. The recalled drugs are marketed as “extended-release tablets” under the brand name Time-Cap Labs, Inc. The drug helps lower the blood glucose levels of those with type 2 diabetes. But the recalled product contained an unacceptably high level of N-Nitrosodimethylamine, which is considered a probable human carcinogen. “Marksans performed […]

Biohacking Sex, Tantric Breathwork, Orgasmic Enhancement & More!

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Jamie Wheal is a peak-performance expert who, in his new book, Recapture the Rapture: Rethinking God, Sex, and Death in a World That’s Lost Its Mind, maps out a revolutionary new practice that combines the best of neuroscience and optimal psychology. He calls it hedonic engineering, and it is an intensive program of breathing, movement, and sexuality that mends trauma, heightens inspiration, and tightens connections—helping us wake up, grow up, and show up for a world that needs us all. For example, here’s a Hedonic Sex matrix, very similar to what Jamie and I unpack on today’s podcast: Groundbreaking new […]
