Health Without Science

We have learned so much about sickness and disease. We not only know how each organ, tissue, and cell functions, but we know how it all works together. We understand how food gets broken down into proteins, carbohydrates, and fats, how they all get absorbed into the bloodstream, and how the body utilizes those nutrients…

A Dash of Common Sense

As we walked by some local shops while on vacation several years ago, the shop employees worked hard to win our attention and lure us into their stores. Many offered a free pair of earrings, just for coming in. They assured us that there “were no strings attached.” We had no interest, and were able…

Can You Control Everything?

He warned the audience that there were “two freight trains heading toward you right now.” Those two freight trains, according to him, were chronic illness and a lack of doctors in the future.…

The Next Public Enemy #1

There is a tendency for us (the media, doctors, scientists, etc.) to get hyper-focused on a particular thing as being the answer to our health care woes. We pick out certain foods as either the solution to all of our problems, or the ultimate cause of all disease. In the past, the foods that have…

Honor All Emotions…

If I ask you to think about the worst day you’ve ever experienced in your life, you will become filled with certain emotions. If I then ask you to think about the greatest day you’ve ever experienced, you will become filled with a completely different set of emotions. Have you ever responded to a situation…
