Are you fixing the plumbing, or building a mansion? Part 2 of 2

At church Sunday, someone was making an announcement about a care center that wants us to bring them snacks for the mentally handicapped residents: “The care center staff said they want HEALTHY treats, like fruit snacks and Gushers.” I don’t know what Gushers are, but the fact that they have a brand name is a […]

Coconut oil health benefits….going mainstream, part 1 of 2

Thanks to a GSG reader for sending this New York Times article. A lot of the things I’ve been teaching for a long time are starting to go mainstream, about the power of coconut oil–which I believed only when I found a dozen miraculous health benefits of it for myself. This blog entry isn’t about […]

more M.D. reaction to the China Study

I went to a baby shower, at a restaurant,  for one of my tennis teammates this week. I got to chatting with Sherston, whose husband is the orthopedic surgeon recommended to me recently on facebook. When I posted about my podiatrist wanting me to undergo surgery for my running- and tennis-induced plantar fasciitis. (After reading […]

this is Dr. Campbell’s response

Tomorrow, on to other topics. Today, here is T. Colin Campbell’s response to Mercola’s missive: Dr. Mercola raises so many questions that it would take me at least several weeks if not months to answer. He invents clever sayings and makes serious innuendos that are total nonsense–indeed slanderous. His questions are rhetorical, with meaning, and […]

Vaccines, part 4 of 4

I have read with tremendous interest the experiences of many parents who commented on my two-part blog entry on vaccines. I could write a lot about this subject, and soon, I will have a much longer blog series to post, with a new book recommendation. Please read the interesting experiences, and the book choices and […]

vaccines, part 3 of 4

Jennifer asked, in response to my recent blogs on immunization, about her son going on a church mission. The LDS Church requires a service or proselyting missionary to be current on shots–even seniors. This blog entry applies only to LDS people concerned about vaccines who want to go on a mission or send a child […]

Immunization, part 2

There is a very compelling “other side” to the vaccine story. I’ll have another book recommendation for you shortly (one that I am reading), and a multi-part blog series on the topic. The most helpful book I read as a young mom, making tough decisions, was Randall Neustadter’s The Vaccine Guide. I like it because […]

Joe Mercola and GreenSmoothieGirl on agave

In the natural health space, Joe Mercola is very much a Goliath, and I’m very much a David. Today’s topic: my affinities and differences with his philosophies. Dr. Mercola responded to my blog posting and newsletter of a week ago, about agave. I stand firm that drawing fear-based parallels between raw, organic agave from a […]

Breast Cancer and ObamaCare . . . part 1 of 3

The headline in my paper, Mar. 26, is “Up to a Third of Breast Cancer Cases Could be Avoided.” Western countries could avoid 25 to 30 percent of breast cancer cases if they ate less and exercised more. (That’s lowest-common-denominator stuff. What if they not only got thinner and exercised, but they ate POWERFULLY HEALING […]

obesity conference

This is an email I got from a GSG reader. Dr. Larsen is a dentist who studies nutrition to help his patients and practices what he preaches. His observations at the obesity conference he recently attended parallel my own, as documented sometimes on this blog. What do you think? Robyn, I attended a seminar in […]
