  • Title: Detoxification: Heavy Metals and Chelation Therapy
  • Published Date: 2021-01-07
  • Description:

    Exposure to heavy metals can lead to infertility and poor birth outcomes, neurologic cell death, loss of IQ points in children, endothelial cell dysfunction leading to hypertension and cardiac disease, kidney disorders, and autoimmune disease like autoimmune thyroiditis. These are just a handful of the myriad of biochemical and physiologic abnormalities that result from heavy metal toxicity. We will discuss approaches to testing for body burden of heavy metals and safe approaches to removing these metals with chelation therapy. Please ensure the practitioner who helps you is trained in detoxification and chelation therapy from organizations like American College for Advancement in Medicine www.acam.og or the International College of Integrative Medicine https://icimed.com/ or naturopathic groups specializing in detoxification https://www.emeiglobal.com/courses/emei-training. Chelation therapy is not something to be taken lightly and should always been done with an expert.

  • Title: Detoxification: Preparing the Terrain
  • Published Date: 2020-12-31
  • Description:

    Today The Art and Soul of Healing delves into clearing the organic chemical toxicants from the body or how the body does that and  what  can be done to support the genetic, biochemical, and elimination pathways. First we discuss preparing the terrain or getting body ready to detoxify. We look at Phase I Cytochrome P450 enzymes and Phase II conjugation pathways. It is important to understand these are genetically hardwired but can be supported and made to work more effectively with nutrients from food and supplements. Testing for chemical toxicants in our bodies is presented in an overview.  Next podcast will be highlighting the other group of toxicants, the heavy metals, and how to remove them with chelation by using food and pharmaceutical chelators.

  • Title: Detoxification: Part 1 What Are Toxicants
  • Published Date: 2020-12-17
  • Description:

    One thing I want to highlight is it is important to meet each person who needs detoxification where they are. First you need to understand their individual story from birth to the present, work history, hobbies, and anything that could lead to an increased body burden of toxicants. That includes chemicals (yes even the plastic wrap around your food you microwave then eat - yumm!), metals, electromagnetic frequencies, infections, or emotional toxicity. Then it is important to prepare the terrain for detoxification and that will come in future episodes.  So let's begin our journey!

  • Title: Rob Verkerk and Mel Aldridge Part 1 Vaccine Transparency and the Immune System
  • Published Date: 2020-11-26
  • Description:

    This episode is not an anti-vax screed but simply a request for data so we can approach vaccination for SARS-CoV-2  with full informed consent. Informed consent is the foundation of medical practice. The American Medical Association Code of Medical Ethics Opinion 2.1.1 states, "Informed consent to medical treatment is fundamental in both ethics and law.  Patients have the right to receive information and ask questions about recommended  treatments so they can make well-informed decisions about care." Informed consent also includes the role of conflicts of interest. How does the group promoting the medical treatment stand to financially benefit?

    Vaccine data transparency will enable all of us as human citizens of the world to exercise our rights to give informed consent when the time comes to receive the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine.

  • Title: Macronutrients: Lipids
  • Published Date: 2020-11-19
  • Description:

    In my clinical practice there were people who followed low fat diets or ate highly processed food full of fake fat. This led to skin changes, brain changes, dull hair, low vitamin D, and low sex steroid hormones like testosterone. These are just a few changes that can occur from following low fat diets or eating damaged plastic fats in processed food. Fat is critical to keep the human body held together and running properly. It's time to embrace real food  that has generous portions of good fats like olive oil, fish, organic vegetables, and meat sources from pastured raised  or free range raised animals. It's time to turn our backs on processed fake plastic fats that gum up our metabolism and make us sick.

  • Title: Macronutrients: Carbohydrates and the Scourge of Chronic Disease
  • Published Date: 2020-11-05
  • Description:

    Carbohydrates are the most abundant organic components in most fruits, vegetables, legumes, and cereal grains, and they are added as simple sugars to many processed foods to provide texture and flavor. The fundamental basic carbohydrate currency is glucose. Glucose serves as a precursor for synthesis of all other carbohydrates that are important components of body fluids, structural matrix, membranes, and cell surfaces.  Carbohydrates are critical for  human life but not in the overabundant destructive form of simple sugars we are awash in today when eating the Standard American Diet. Let's take a tour of the science, where we are, and  the path away from chronic disease.
