Sep 22, 2021

Evelyn was a communications professor at John Carroll University. 

While in her fifties, she suffered two heart attacks. 

 After she underwent an angioplasty and a triple bypass, her cardiologist told her there was nothing more he could do for her and that she probably wouldn’t live out the year. 

 Soon after, she met Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn who suggested she would be a good candidate for a heart disease program he was starting. 

Dr. Esselstyn’s program was aimed at preventing heart disease with a proper diet.

A Misleading Trick From the Food Industry

Sep 15, 2021

Last week I talked about the misinformation that is spread by the news media and even some medical professionals and one of the biggest reasons is because they too can be misled.

This newsletter is just one example.

If you’ve read news reports of studies that show eating an egg a day won’t raise your cholesterol or increase your risk of a heart attack, you should know there is more to these studies than meets the eye. 

According to Dr. John McDougall: 

“Dozens of papers published in scientific journals and funded by "The Egg...

Jul 29, 2021

A great way to progress your ability to cope with negative feelings, unwanted thoughts, panic, anxiety, and stressful situations is the practice of mindfulness.

Making mindfulness a daily practice can help turn down the noise in your mind by bringing you to the here and now (being present) instead of dwelling in the past or the future, leading to a happier, calmer, more relaxed you.

If you are like most people, mediation conjures up images of swamis, yogis, and monks and terms such as Ashram, Buddha, and Chakras.

You don’t have to get caught up in these...

The Most Important Gift Ever From My Mother

Jul 13, 2021

When I was about 11 years old, and my sister was 7, our mother used to leave the house at 7:00 am, 5 days a week to walk a mile to the bus stop to get to her job as a dental assistant.

After she left, we were pretty much on our own to get ourselves ready for school…making breakfast, ironing our clothes, then walking to school.

By the time she got home, it was 6:00 pm, and now she had to make dinner out of whatever the food we had in our semi-bare refrigerator or cabinets…have you ever seen a whole chicken from a can?

This was the typical everyday...

The Chemical Imbalance of the Brain Theory is a Myth

Over 42 million Americans take antidepressants for depression, panic attacks, ADHD, sleep disorders and smoking cessation.

Antidepressants are prescribed based on the theory of a chemical imbalance of the brain.

This is a theory that has never been proven.

“How I Lost 44 Pounds and Lowered My Cholesterol 75 Points Without Medication”

Jun 22, 2021

In July 2014 something changed my life.

About a year before then, I had to see a cardiologist because of an abnormal EKG.

The doctor informed me, my cholesterol was at 220 and he told me to either start eating right or I would have to go on a pill.

There was no way I was going to take medication so I told him I would start to eat better.

Even at 63 years old the doctors’ words didn’t motivate me.

I was Einstein’s definition of insanity...

  “Doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results.”

It turns...
