Root canals….at the root of much disease?

Root canals are another toxic practice. Over 20 million root canal surgeries are done each year in the U.S. alone. I unfortunately have had two of them, before I knew how dangerous they are, or that I had any other option. Dr. James Howenstine says, “Many chronic diseases, perhaps most, are a result of root […]

amalgam fillings—friend or foe?

I never thought twice about letting the dentist pack mercury into my teeth. Then, with that mercury “safely” packed into my cranium, I cracked ice with my teeth relentlessly for many years. Ten years ago I learned about the importance of getting the mercury OUT of my mouth, and I had my totally traditional dentist […]

Anti-nutrients….are you letting them scare you off whole foods? Part 2 of 3

Phytates.  Science actually knows very little about these anti-nutrients that some say rob your body of minerals. Sally Fallon’s book Nourishing Traditions teaches how to soak grains to neutralize phytates. (I discuss this issue and, for ease of digestion, teach it as an option in Step 9 of 12 Steps to Whole Foods, too.) However, […]

DIRTY ELECTRICITY! Our reader does a science experiment—cell phones kill algae!

GSG reader Susan L. wrote us that her son did his science fair experiment with the xZubi technology that you put on the back of your cell phone (also your PC monitors, microwave, TV screen, etc.). The cell phone with no protection killed the algae growing in the petri dish. The xZubi-protected phone killed nothing—the […]

The PSA for prostate cancer: does it detect cancer and save lives?

I recently mentioned, rather controversially, ways that the medical industry may actually be increasing our likelihood and rate of breast cancer, with mammography. I will document this more precisely, soon. I also wrote how the heavy metals in deodorant coupled with shaving, and also lymph restriction from wearing bras, increase our risk of breast cancer. […]

Will my teeth go bad on a raw diet?

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: Will my teeth go bad on a raw diet? I am troubled by the Weston A. Price Foundation’s claim. –Megan From Robyn: I have noticed observationally that those on a long-term 100% vegan diet sometimes have dental problems. I do not think that this diet is necessary. (I wonder if there are good […]

Creative Health Institute, Part 4 of 5

These are just a few of my new friends who participated in the 10-day Detox and Rebuild program. I’m telling you their motives for traveling to CHI, and their comments about the experience. 1. Donna. She was actually a teacher returning to talk about essential oils, but she reduced her melanoma cancer 75% in 14 […]

Creative Health Institute, part 2 of 5

Here’s a video of our teacher, Madeleine, talking about Rejuvelac, and a great idea for green smoothies—and the “banya” by the Coldwater Creek that is my favorite part of the CHI experience. If ALL you got at CHI was any two of the following things, the experience is well worth the money–and of course, you […]

An open letter to practitioners of Oncology

Dear Oncology Practitioner: Let’s lay down the weapons, and take up a flashlight instead. Let’s shine the light on whether cutting, burning, and poisoning really work. Let’s care about the human body’s sanctity, and the need we have for our immune system for the rest of our lives, more than we care about debate, defensiveness, […]

All I think about is CANCER…Challenges I’ll face studying “alt-med”…part 6 of 7

Quotes by Charlotte Gerson I read recently: “You cannot heal the body with poison.” “Dr. Gerson . . . with nutritional metabolic therapy . . . was able to return the body to full balance with complete mineralization, complete immune response, complete oxidation, and complete liver function. When all of these things work completely, there […]
