Trick or Treat? While there is one specific day on the calendar set aside for this – Halloween, in the world of nutrition and health it is an everyday challenge, particularly with the foods we eat. I have devoted a significant amount of “print” space the past few months to glyphosate and I have more this month to share – and it illustrates how words can be deceiving. In the article below you’ll see how Monsanto says something which is true to prove their point, but leaves out the rest of the story which negates the true statement.

I just returned from an excellent conference in Santa Barbara hosted by Physica Energetics. And yes, I learned some new things which I have already incorporated into my practice. Some of you have already benefited from this and others will soon as well. The information I’m sharing regarding glyphosate is from that conference.

This issue also features the first in a series of three articles about cardiovascular health. It is a summary of the information I learned in September at the Back to School for Doctors conference.

I hope you enjoy all this new information!

How Words Can Be Deceiving – What Monsanto Says about Glyphosate but What it Really Means
As I’ve been saying over the past few months – I love to learn! I just returned from the Physica Energetics annual conference called Concordia. Not only did I get to be in beautiful Santa Barbara (I’d never been there before), hang out with some interesting practitioners, learn new stuff to apply in my practice, and gain knowledge to share.

This is under “knowledge to share.” Thanks to Dr. Robert Cass for educating me! Below is information quoted from his presentation.

“According to Monsanto, producer of Roundup, the most popular herbicide used on the planet, the product is nearly nontoxic for humans. The usage of Roundup to kill weeds has skyrocketed around the world since the year 2000, in part it went off patent that year, but also because of the enormous increase (especially in the U.S.) in the appearance of “Roundup-Ready” GMO crops.”

Nutrients for a Healthy Heart: Part I – Introduction and Heart Rate

I love to learn! It’s probably one of the most enjoyable aspects in my line of work. I am always learning. I have to, to keep up with the latest nutrition information. Be it from my clients, other practitioners, or at educational seminars – it is a continuous process. The best part of the process is once I learn something new I can apply it in my practice and pass it on to my clients and the public.

Recently I attended a seminar on cardiovascular health (Cardiovascular: Performance, Endurance, and Maintenance). While the new information is still circulating (pun intended) through my system, I’ll be sharing it with you through a series of articles.

Let’s start with a few basic facts about your heart. The adult heart weighs about 8-10 ounces, yet it is more electrical than the brain (which weighs five times as much). It contracts about 100,000 times during the day pumping six quarts of blood through over 100,000 miles of arteries, veins, and capillaries. The basics of circulation are as follows: The heart pumps oxygenated blood through the arteries to the organs and tissues. At the same time veins carry deoxygenated blood from the organs and tissues back to the heart. The deoxygenated blood goes to the lungs to get oxygen and is then pumped out again to the organs and tissues. This process is repeated over and over.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the US. Each year there are 1.6 million heart attacks, with over a half million of those being fatal. And, each year there are 795,000 strokes, with 140,000 deaths. Approximately one-third of the deaths in the US each year are caused by heart disease and strokes.

This leads to the question of whether heart disease and strokes can be avoided or reduced. It appears that medicine has many theories on treating heart disease, but actual success has yet to be achieved as evidenced by the continued increase in deaths. Perhaps this is why JAMA (the Journal of the American Medical Association) reported in February of 2009 that just 11% of the more than 2,700 recommendations approved by cardiologists for treating heart patients are actually supported by high-quality scientific testing!
