Check Your Pits & Your Feet: 2 Easy Ways To Prep For A Healthy Spring

  Is it heating up where you live? It’s warming up here, and as I got sweaty doing some spring gardening this weekend, it reminded me to put out my annual blog post urging you not to use antiperspirants.   Many of my readers don’t use anti-perspirant, but they do use a deodorant. So today I want to urge you to also double check that your deodorant is paraben free too, or it’s not much better than an anti-perspirant. Here’s why:       Our armpits are not only covered in fully absorptive skin just like the rest of our

Resolving PTSD, OCD, Tobacco and Drug Addiction Too

A recent medical study came out looking at the natural supplement N-Acetylcysteine (NAC for short) in healing the brain after trauma… …with fantastic results.   NAC is a potent brain antioxidant and protector — found essential in the healing of the brain after impact injury (such as concussion) so researchers wanted to investigate if this supplement could actually help heal the brain after different types of mental injury as well… such as PTSD and addiction. It’s not often that a holistic supplement is studied this extensively and found to have such robust positive outcomes, yet it’s not something that I’ve

Sea Salt Spray Heals Diabetic Ulcers

As I blogged about last week… I love treating skin issues. I love taking care of skin, and I love supporting skin healing. As a physician, skin is like magic to me.   In medicine, we see the miracle of skin repair all the time:   You can cut it during surgery, and it will grow back together within a week. You can scrape it to take a biopsy, and it will re-establish an intact barrier within days. You can puncture it with a needle, and it will fill back in to stop bleeding within a matter of minutes… sometimes

Morning Light Effectively Treats Fibromyalgia In Just A Few Days

Just one hour of bright light each morning has been medically shown to decrease pain and sensitivity as well as increase functioning in patients with fibromyalgia.   Meaningful results were statistically significant without any artificial prescription medications and zero side effects, which is exciting news because fibromyalgia pain is typically an extremely difficult type of pain to treat. Usually, fibromyalgia patients are either given a cocktail of Rx medications ranging from antidepressants to pain killers, or told there is nothing that can be done and that the pain and the reduced ability to function is just now their baseline… or

This supplement decreases diabetic pain (and decreases asthma flares too!)

I’ve already told you about a recent study that shows low Vit D is a risk factor for developing diabetes. Today’s medical literature review further confirms the role of Vitamin D in not just preventing diabetes, but actually treating diabetic pain once it has already developed…. …after just ONE DOSE!   Which is huge. Because not only does Vit D increase insulin sensitivity and prevent diabetes, but it actually gives you a tool to help treat issues such as diabetic nerve pain once it has developed.   The Study: Researchers studied over 140 participants with Type 2 Diabetes who suffered

Decrease Your Pain Without Medication

Pain is a big deal.   Considering pain is the number one reason patients seek medical care and that pain issues affect more Americans than heart disease, diabetes and cancer combined… patients reach for pain medications in alarming amounts at alarming rates and with alarming side effects. Prescription opioid drug overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in the US, and these rates are steadily on the rise. Many pain medications are addictive and cause incalculable harm to the dependent patient struggling with pain issues. I know in my practice working with folks to reduce their dependency on addictive
