Gluten Sensitivity is finally gaining traction. People are becoming aware of the symptoms of Gluten intolerance, and even some medical doctors are aware of this. So what are the symptoms you ask?
You can have any or all of the above symptoms, but you need to understand, this is not always a digestive problem.
This news story is just the tip of the iceberg. And yes, there are multiple factors involved here, from the drastic decline of “outside” time children have, the rise of the online world and all their accompanying games, to our dietary changes over the last 50 years.
And there is more. Read More
There is a wide spectrum of what sick is, from simply being run-down to the absolute worst scenario. And we have seen a lot of children at our office, from new-born infants and up. And the one factor that seems a constant with respect to the health of your child is diet.

NBC News is reporting on ” a sobering thought for every cat owner in charge of emptying the litter box: Felines deposit about 1.2 million metric tons of feces into the U.S. environment every year, a new study finds, and all that poop may pose an under-recognized public health hazard.”
It is guesstimated that 1 % of cats are shedding parasites when
Thank the Lord, Spring has finally arrived here in Ottawa, Ontario. And unfortunately for some poor individuals, that means allergies.
But there is hope. Photo Credit
Spring is here and with the temperatures about to take off, Spring Allergies are about to poke their heads up. And let’s be real, allergies are no fun and take the enjoyment out of what should be a great time of year.
So what to do? If you don’t want to start popping Claritin or some such anti-histamine, you might consider Allergy Elimination Technique.
“Frankly, I’m a little skeptical” are words that I hear on a fairly regular basis. Most often it is a person who has suffered from some chronic problem for years and years. And they keep getting worse, despite everything that medicine has thrown at it.
With so many people escaping the cold in Ottawa, Ontario and Canada for that matter, heading to the warm environs of the Caribbean islands or Mexico, they have their own double edged sword to deal with. And that is the fact that the hotter the country, the more bugs there are. And the more parasties there are.
Those words were found on almost every report card I brought home as a child. And yes, I was guilty of all of the above and more. I can remember sitting in school looking out the window and dreaming about being Robin Hood.
First it was the reports that our daughters are Starting Puberty Earlier.
“More than 10 percent of white 7-year-old girls in the study, which was conducted in the mid-2000s, had reached a stage of breast development marking the start of puberty, compared to just 5 percent in a similar study conducted in the early 1990s.
Black and Hispanic girls continue to mature faster than white girls, on average. Nearly one-quarter of black girls and 15 percent of Hispanic girls had entered puberty by age 7″.
One fellow said to me the other day, “frankly, I’m a little skeptical about the work you do at Awakening Potentials.”
My answer to him, was that after 13 different doctors, 4 operations that have left him in constant pain and made him worse with each new procedure they have thrown at him, that I would be skeptical about traditional medicine. Read More
And that special something is what can separate success from failure.
Time is literally running out. Anyone who is serious about losing a few pounds before swimsuit season is here should act right now.
I know of so many people who will go to the beach in their clothes, but will not put so much as a foot in the water. Why you ask? Because they don’t want to be seen in their bathing suit. And that’s too bad, that they deprive themselves such enjoyment. But it is also understandable.
Weight is a HUGE issue in our society. But weight gain is just the tip of a big iceberg and it is called our toxic load. Read More
Treated another patient with a hiatus hernia today and so I thought I would share a little about this problem. Acid Reflux, also known as a hiatus hernia is actually a problem that can be fixed. It is almost always a result of your ribs being torqued, or twisted. This in turn causes your diaphragm, that large flat muscle we all have between our lungs and our intestines to become spasmodic.
You see, your mouth and throat turn into your esophagus, a tube that takes the food down to the stomach.
Some people think that a multivitamin is a multivitamin. That all are relatively the same. I used to think so and in that scenario, cheaper is better. Of course all that changed when I learned how to muscle test and discovered that some vitamins are better absorbed than others.
And all the while, scientists ignored what are called PHYTONUTRIENTS. These are chemicals that are in foods that cause a blue berry to be blue and that cause that garlic smell in a clove of garlic. But we, the scientific world didn’t know what they did. And so we threw them out and ignored them.
