April 2016 Newsletter - Introducing A New Soy Based Diet That Gets Your Cholesterol to 150!

Hopefully all of you recognize that headline as an April Fool’s! 

Unfortunately there are still many nutrition “experts” and mainstream medical personnel who believe soy is a health food and your cholesterol should be 150! In fact, these are just two of my favorite nutrition myths that I am compelled to debunk each and every day with my clients.

In the spirit of April Fool’s I’d like to review these top nutrition myths and provide you with the relevant information so you too can debunk them. Please see the featured article below for the details.

I’d also like to thank all my clients and mentors for their ongoing support. This past month of March 2016 was the best ever for my business. My business is primarily based on referrals and word of mouth. Satisfied clients refer their friends and relatives and it all goes from there. There is nothing more satisfying then when a client has normal bowel movements after three years of diarrhea or when migraine headaches no longer occur after years of suffering. It is an honor to work with each and every client as they become healthier and their health issues are resolved.  

Don’t Be Fooled: Nutrition Myths Busted – Part 1
Following are seven nutrition myths that I come across on a daily basis. Unfortunately, most of them are still widely accepted in the mainstream medical and media worlds (and some even in the “alternative” medical world). Most of these topics I’ve written about in prior newsletters and articles. Since this is a newsletter and not a book I will cover each one briefly and then provide links for your further reading.  Also, not to over burden you, I will split this article up between this newsletter and next month.

1.      All calories are created equal.
Do you believe eating a hard-boiled egg or a half slice of piece of white bread can have the same effect in your body? They have a similar caloric count. If you cut back your calories each week to lose weight and you keep doing that will you eventually disappear from weight loss? Not likely. For the full story click here:

2.      Cholesterol causes heart disease.
We all have heard of people with “normal” cholesterol dropping dead from a heart attack. Even the cholesterol medications do not state they reduce the risk of heart disease, they only reduce cholesterol. Yet, we need cholesterol. It is the base ingredient for our steroid hormones. Perhaps that’s why there are so many side effects associated with statin medications. The real question is why is your body making cholesterol and what does it mean? Here’s one of my articles on cholesterol: And here’s a great website:

3.      Artificial sweeteners are safe.
Sorry, they’re not. They contain many harmful (potentially cancer causing) chemicals and while they don’t raise your blood sugar levels (they can’t because they’re not food) they still can cause an insulin response. For all the details click here:
If you want even more detail, here’s an excellent web site:

4.      Soy is a health food.
Not really. You can’t digest it, it inhibits thyroid hormone production, and can cause hormone disruptions, plus it is mostly GMO. Other than that – it’s great! Here’s my article: For more information I encourage you to go to the Weston Price Foundation web site and read their vast collection of soy articles:

5.      Eating animal protein causes cancer (The China Study). – sorry, you’ll have to wait for next month’s newsletter.

6.      Antioxidants are essential nutrients. – sorry, you’ll have to wait for next month’s newsletter.

7.      There is no way to reverse Type II diabetes. – sorry, you’ll have to wait for next month’s newsletter.

Don’t be fooled!!

March 2016 Newsletter - March on Minerals!

March on Minerals!
Hard to believe it is March 1, especially as I look out my window and see some snow coming down! Fortunately it does not look like the 4-8 inches that they were predicting last night!

In a couple of weeks the NCAA’s March Madness begins – several crazy weeks of college basketball coming up! On the theme of madness and crazy this month’s newsletter looks at minerals. Why? Certain minerals are calming to the nervous system. They’ll help us cope with the pressure of how our bracket is doing in the office pool! 

But in all seriousness, minerals are essential to our life. While minerals in general are involved in all our functions there are specific minerals that are utilized by specific endocrine glands. See below for the minerals and glands pairings.

The only way to get minerals is to eat them! Our bodies do not make them. Please enjoy the articles below on the importance of minerals.

Magnesium and Calcium: Are You Deficient?
We hear a lot about the importance of calcium and magnesium to our health. I’ve attended several seminars recently where this was emphasized. One presenter said he checks for calcium, magnesium, and other minerals on all his clients. Why are minerals so important to us?  They assist the body in energy production - minerals contain no calories or energy.  They work with vitamins and enzymes to fuel all our metabolic processes.  Our health cannot be optimized if these processes are impaired.
