Affluent People are Less Likely to Reach out for Support

submitted by: admin on 05/08/2015
A study from UC Berkeley published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology showed that have-nots reach out to one another in times of trouble, but that the wealthy are more apt to find comfort in material possessions. What does this say about our value system?! Through education from our role models and what we're taught in school, we learn...

All About Water with Beverly Rubik, PhD

submitted by: admin on 05/08/2015
There are many different aspects of water that are important in supporting good health. Most water is not ideal for human consumption. Water should be alkaline, existing in microclusters, and free of heavy metals, chlorine, fluoride, and environmental toxins. This means we need to filter and treat the water we consume carefully. Some interesting aspects of biophysics,...

Avoid the Swine Flu Vaccine—And Boost Your Own Immunity

submitted by: admin on 12/15/2018
    Our nearly seventy combined years of practicing medicine [note: this piece is coauthored by Len Saputo, MD and Stacia Lansman, MD, with Byron Belitsos] has taught us this, if anything: Be wary whenever “big pharma” is part of any health campaign from which it stands to profit. And this is all the more true when it...

Bile - Not Acid - Causes Barrett's Esophagus

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
A study published in Annals of Surgery in April of 2012 showed that bile, not acid, is the cause for Barrett's esophagus and esophageal cancer. This finding is especially important because current drug therapies for GERD focus largely on acid control. Drugs that block acid production might actually make the risk for esophageal cancer higher. Research...

Can Aredia Kill the Influenza Virus?

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
An old osteoporosis drug, Aredia, may be effective in killing a range of influenza viruses that include the swine and bird flu. In the June 2011 issue of the Journal of Experimental Medicine, researchers showed that Aredia stimulated gamma-delta T-cells to reproduce and also kill influenza viruses. Rather than killling the virus directly, it does so through the...

Can Probiotics Protect Against Swine Flu Deaths?

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  The 2009 H1N1 swine flu epidemic deaths in children were more related to MRSA than the virus itself. Simultaneous infection of MRSA and H1N1 increased mortality by 8 fold! Only 30% of children in ICU with swine flu did not have a co-existing serious disease. Of those, only 9% died. The potential value of the swine flu vaccine would not save many lives....

Cough and Asthma with Dr. Fred Nachtway

submitted by: admin on 12/15/2018
Asthma is found across all age groups and it often presents as a cough. Allergic rhinitis and reflux esophagitis often cause cough too. Bronchial provocation testing helps identify those people with a cough who have asthma from those with esophagitis. The prevalence of asthma is increasing and air pollution is probably part of the reason. Taking a careful history...

Dehydration

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
As we age we become more dehydrated. Exercise causes fluid and to some extent, salt loss that can result in hyponatremia. Humidity reduces evaporation and sweating does very little to cause cooling. Vicki tells a story of my extreme dehydration while playing tennis in Jakarta.

Do You Need the Swine Flu Vaccine?

submitted by: admin on 12/15/2018
Do you need to take the swine flu vaccine? Some medical centers require taking the vaccine. Scare tactics are a powerful tool to intimidate people into taking the vaccine. The CDC has been concealing their data regarding the need for the vaccine. CBS did its own study on the incidence of swine flu and their numbers were much lower than those of the CDC. One person...

submitted by: admin on 01/11/2014
Studies out of the University of North Carolina published in the December 2013 issue of Virology, showed that reducing glucose levels in cell cultures inhibited the influenza virus from infecting host cells and spreading to other cells. Now, if only we could lower blood glucose levels in living humans! While we cannot achieve this clinically, we learned...

Does Tamiflu Work?

submitted by: admin on 09/20/2013
  The World Health Organization and the CDC class Tamiflu as an essential drug and many countries have stockpiled the drug at great expense. However, in a recent article in the Public Library of Science, this premise is being challenged. Roche Pharmaceuticals has refused to release the scientific research related to this question. The public is paying...

Does the Flu Vaccine Increase the Risk for Getting the Flu?

submitted by: admin on 09/20/2013
  The scandalous swine flu vaccine is still being promoted by the CDC when it is clear that the vaccine is unproven to be of value, may not be safe, may increase the risk for getting the flu, and that its seriousness is no worse than the common cold. Nonetheless, two counties and many hospitals in northern California are mandated that health care professionals...

First Impressions Can be Harmful to Your Health

submitted by: admin on 10/22/2018
First impressions are powerful and lasting. This carries over into medicine big time. Once we become accustomed to a certain test or treatment we feel deprived when we don't have access to them. Dr. Len and Nurse Vicki review examples of this that include mammograms and breast thermography, drugs and infrared light therapy, routine lab testing and BioEnergy...
