Infertility Vanished with One Woman’s Weight Loss

Natural Health | February 23, 2011

I met Holly Johnson this past weekend at our Northern Virginia Whole Foods Nutrition meetup group. When I heard her dramatic testimony of how a change in diet enabled her to become pregnant, just had to share it with you!

Here is our video interview!

For more information on low carb diets, I recommend Living La Vida Low Carb blog by Jimmy Moore. If others have suggestions on helpful weight loss sites, please add them to the comments, below.

Coming soon, a guest blog by a medical doctor who has just come out with a book on weight loss. He has helped thousands upon thousands of patients lose weight. We spoke on the phone yesterday, and I am very excited to hear what he has to share!

Check the Books and Literature section of my resources page for more help on nutrition and lifestyle changes to improve your health. New Trends Publishing offers several excellent weight loss books, A Life Unburdened and Eat Fat, Lose Fat, for instance.

Kimberly Hartke is a health and wellness blogger. She and her husband lost 50 lbs between them by following a healthy fat, good carb diet, which emphasized low glycemic carbs.

This post is part of the Real Food Wednesday blog carnival. You’ll find lots of healthy recipes and real food ideas on Kelly the Kitchen Kop.

Study: Low Salt Intake Associated with High Death Rates

Study: Low Salt Intake Associated with High Death Rates

Pin It

A new article in the New England Journal of Medicine (August 14, 2014) studied the sodium levels in 101,945 persons from 17 countries. The scientists examined the association between sodium excretion and the outcome of death and major cardiovascular events. Sodium excretion correlates directly with sodium ingestion.

This article is another in a long-line of salt articles debunking the myth that we need to lower our salt intake. I have tested thousands of patients for their salt levels. I can assure you that the vast majority of patients are low in salt.

CDC Whistleblower: CDC Covered Up MMR Vaccine Link to Autism in African American Boys

CDC Whistleblower: CDC Covered Up MMR Vaccine Link to Autism in African American Boys

A top research scientist working for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) played a key role in helping Dr. Brian Hooker of the Focus Autism Foundation uncover data manipulation by the CDC that obscured a higher incidence of autism in African-American boys.

“We’ve missed ten years of research because the CDC is so paralyzed right now by anything related to autism. They’re not doing what they should be doing because they’re afraid to look for things that might be associated.” The whistleblower alleges criminal wrongdoing of his supervisors, and he expressed deep regret about his role in helping the CDC hide data.

Gardasil Vaccine: One More Girl Dead

Gardasil Vaccine: One More Girl Dead

Pin It

The sudden death of a 12-year-old girl in Waukesha, Wisconsin, just hours after receiving the HPV Gardasil vaccine has shocked the girl’s family, and sent local media out asking questions as to how this could happen.

Dr. Geoffrey Swain of the local health department was interviewed to give the standard CDC reply, which is similar to almost every other vaccine, stating that severe reaction like this resulting in death are “very rare,” and about “1 out of a million”.

Assuming that there is some data to back up the claim of only “1 out of a million,” how many doses of the HPV vaccine are administered every year? According to the latest statistics (July 2014) published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, over 9 million per year. So the government admits that at least 9 girls per year are killed by the HPV vaccine. How many parents know this prior to taking a doctor’s advice to administer this vaccine that is supposedly a protection against cervical cancer caused by the human papillomavirus, a sexually transmitted disease?

These local news media, possibly covering the HPV vaccine for the first time, were all quick to interview and provide links to the official CDC view of the vaccine. But here are some other facts regarding the vaccine that they failed to disclose, probably because they did not take the time to look outside of the standard government response to events like this, or their station managers did not allow them to give any other news outside of what the CDC claims.

Baking with the Ancient Grain Einkorn

Baking with the Ancient Grain Einkorn

Pin It

Einkorn is an ancient grain that is not yet commonly known in the western world, but used often in the Mediterranean region and in the mountainous areas of Europe. This grain is slightly finicky, completely delicious, good for you, has a slight yellowish tinge, and smells (and even looks) a little like corn flour.

Because of einkorn’s lower gluten elasticity, the following baking tips will help you bake successfully with einkorn and avoid a lot of frustration.

A Low Carbohydrate Diet Cures Diabetes

A Low Carbohydrate Diet Cures Diabetes

Pin It

Diabetes is the great failure of the medical system. A generation of following the high-carb low-fat USDA approved food pyramid, along with Big Food’s highly processed carbohydrate-rich products, have produced a national epidemic of obesity and diabetes.

The medical system’s answer to type 2 diabetes is drugs. These drugs, however, are highly toxic with serious side effects, and they don’t work. A recent study that showed that insulin may actually accelerate death in type 2 diabetes, for example.

Diabetes, however, is not a condition that is caused by a lack of drugs. Research clearly links type 2 diabetes (and now type 3 diabetes) to insulin resistance caused by excessive carbohydrates in the diet. This issue is finally starting to get more attention in the mainstream media, fortunately.

In a recent article published in the journal Nutrition, the authors showed that there is continued success in using low-carbohydrate diets in the treatment of diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
