"There's a better way" than the one-size-fits-all-cure-all oral contraceptives prescribed by psychiatrists and gynecologists.
Sleep is one of the ways we engage our connection to the elements, sun, moon, and circadian mapping of our physiology and psychology. Learn some surprising reasons why it is important and how to get more of it.
Today's children have been exposed to an unprecedented level of ultrasound technology, both in frequency and intensity. Is it as safe as the medical establishment claims?
Ten years ago, science assumed that immunity was in the body, not the brain, which was thought to have "immune privilege". Everything we once thought is true is now undergoing radical revision with profound implications to human health, particularly the role of vaccines.
For 95% of our evolutionary history, we were hunter-gatherers. What was our microbial-host relationship like for the duration of that experience? A new study on the Hadza people finally sheds light on this fascinating topic.
Here is why I recommend a gluten free diet to all my patients...
One of the most remarkable papers I have read in the psychiatric literature was about a 57 year old woman who was treated with months of both antipsychotic and antidepressant medications and given two rounds of electroconvulsive treatment before anyone bothered to check her vitamin B12 level.
Modern women have permitted doctors and pharmaceutical companies privileged access to their fierce and primitive drive toward protecting a pregnancy. A recent study found a 116 fold increase in fetal death presumably caused by flu vaccines.
3.5 million U.S. children are now being medicated for a diagnosis of ADHD, but the underlying causes - nutritional, environmental, and emotional - are completely ignored.
The CDC wants every infant vaccinated 3 times against hepatitis B starting with a shot the day of birth, but new research indicates that it is not even effective at preventing infection in the most susceptible populations: the infants of mothers infected with Hep B.
The role of methylation in human health and disease is an explosive area of research, evolving all the time, and an excellent example of the power to use environmental exposures, diet, and supplementation to reclaim control over your health.
Gluten exposure in women wishing to have a baby has recently been confirmed to play a role in making this a distressing and expensive chapter in their lives.
The belief that flu vaccines are safe and effective is a tragically flawed and unacceptably dangerous one.
Just this week, the New York Times published an article stating that the problem of surging whooping cough cases has more to do with flaws in the current vaccines than with parents' resistance. Could the truth about vaccines be going mainstream?
How many contemporary medical practices are not any better than or are worse than doing nothing or doing something else that is simpler or less expensive? The answer to this question is rocking the foundations of 'evidence-based' medicine.
What do GMOs and vaccines have in common? You may be surprised to learn how many overlapping issues they share, and why both technologies should be scrutinized far more closely.
There is an appalling lack of clear and convincing evidence that flu vaccines in pregnant women are safe and effective, and yet the CDC and various medical authorities dangerously encourage them.
The best part of my departure from conventional models of psychiatric care is that I no longer have to engage women in the Sophie's Choice between treatments that may be good for mom and not for baby or vice versa. Healthy medicine relies on interventions that benefit both mom and baby at once.
Psychiatry has long suffered from pseudoscience and propaganda. It is time we take back control of our bodies to heal our minds.
