Recovering from oral surgery…..part 2 of 3

  Dr. Wall gave me IV Vitamin C during the procedure.  I am also using ACS and ACZ, to kill micro-organisms and safely remove them from the body. I told the anaesthesiologist I wanted no benzodiazipenes.  Jeanette, also a patient of Dr. Wall’s, warned me that the anaesthesiologist wouldn’t like that. She was right; he […]

Antibiotics and dental surgery….do I agree with taking AB’s preventatively? Part 1 of 2

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: I think you are pretty conservative and avoid antibiotics, but I had an interesting experience recently in my dental practice that I want to share with you.  You influence a lot of people to make better choices for their health, and if you agree with me and my position as a health care […]

About Dr. L telling me I should not talk about toxic dental practices and stick to whole foods topics only? That is precisely the reason I have a blog in the first place. I don’t want my readers to be as ignorant as I was when I was 27 years old and allowing doctors to […]

One last comment about PSA. We have people at both ends of the spectrum writing us. Some are furious that their loved one died of the treatment. Others are indignant that we don’t see what a wonderful gift the PSA test is for saving lives. I think this brief experience Dave R. wrote us is […]

Are “eating healthy” and “obsessed” synonymous? Part 2 of 3

Regarding faux diagnoses: I’m always frustrated when someone wants to create a pathology out of something healthy, as with this “orthorexia” thing that a number of readers wrote us about. Fact is, before we had artificially-colored Cheez Whiz and a few generations of exposure to it, that kind of “food” would have been shunned. If […]

Are “eating healthy” and “obsessed” synonymous?” [part 1 of 3]

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl (from Linda): “I just received an e-mail earlier today from a friend who considers herself a very healthy eater (she’s a nurse) with a link to the following article “New Eating Disorders: Are They For Real?” about newly discovered or classified eating disorder, Orthorexia. “It says: ‘Orthorexia is Latin for ‘correct eating.’’ Here, […]

A tribute to the late, great Paul Leatham

If you’ve heard me speak, you’ve likely heard me refer to Paul Leatham, one of the greatest influences of my life. Shortly before I spoke in San Diego last month, I got an email that he had passed away. He was 63 and died of lingering complications from a motorcycle accident. When my first child […]

The rest of the story with Rich the Pharmacist. Part 1 of 2.

So here’s the rest of the story with Rich, my first high-school boyfriend. I told you how I ran into him on the plane on his way to pharmacists’ immunization training, and he helped us out in Seattle. I told him, as we reminisced, that before I straightened out my lifestyle, I was 26 and […]
