A few weeks ago, I posted some articles on Facebook regarding the need for protein in one’s diet (here, here). I believe that the lack of protein in the modern diet and the subsequent substitution with processed carbohydrates, is one of the leading contributors to metabolic disease. Over the last 50 years or so, we […]
Topamax is one of the most dangerous drugs in the prescription market today. Not only is it a diet pill made from sugar derivatives (actually a sugar substitute) but it uses two dangerous methods to achieve what several classes of drugs normally do separately and thus with one medicine it affects and potentially damages two circuitries in the brain.

I can distinctly remember that a patient with autism was considered to be unusually rare at that time. It was a habit of the pediatric staff to meet regularly […]

Perhaps she wanted to know why he developed certain symptoms and what sort of treatment might be helpful. Doing her own research, she has been confronted with a mysterious, often repeated, discussion […]
Migraine has been the focus of my research for over the past decade. Over the years, I had been interviewed many times, some with more and others with less technological success. By this I mean, that sometimes the webcam malfunctions and other times the internet connection on the interviewer’s end fades in and out like […]
As long ago as 1984, Alex Schauss published his research on the relationship of malnutrition and criminal activity. In a recent e mail, in reply to my contact with him, he told me that impulse control in adolescent criminals was extremely poor. He said that “time after time a young criminal would say that he […]
