The antioxidant-starved brain

Feeling a little brain fog? Anxiety? Depression?

My ongoing research of allergy and autoimmune disease has uncovered a long history of medical manipulations that defy logic.

Dissecting tennis elbow

OK, tennis elbow is driving me crazy. Three months now of periodic pain and swelling. Three weeks without a match and I’m losing it – playing air guitar with the vacuum cleaner and testing the limits of milk chocolate raisin consumption. While there is some relief in having a condition that my friends and relatives . . . → Read More: Dissecting tennis elbow

Calcification – the bones of disease?

Pain is a language we barely understand. Aches and pains affect our vitality, daily decisions, and outlook on life. We brush them off as old age, stubborn strains or inherited arthritis. Our medicine cabinets feature a smorgasbord of creams and ointments that promise relief, albeit temporary. To reduce or prevent pain in the first place, . . . → Read More: Calcification – the bones of disease?
