Why Big Pharma is Opposed to Medical Marijuana and Decriminalization of Pot

For decades pharmaceutical companies have been supporters of keeping cannabis illegal in the US, even preventing medical research with cannabis, while aggressively developing synthetic (fake) versions of compounds found and extracted naturally from cannabis. Many are known as cannabinoids, increasingly today referred to as CBDs. There is clear if not overwhelming evidence these compounds have significant benefits in treating a variety of diseases.

Lose Your Belly Fat Now – It Literally is Killing You

Weight loss with the reduction of abdominal fat mass almost invariably reverses insulin resistance as a consequence of chronic excessive energy intake in relation to physical activity levels. Weight loss, the macronutrient composition of the respective diet, aerobic exercise, and resistance training all appear to improve insulin resistance, by distinct mechanisms.

Using Psychology to Lose Weight Because Dieting and Exercise Alone Don’t Work

This paper takes the position that because of the continuing high rate of weight-loss failure with the current standard formula, Diet + Exercise = Weight Loss, a new formula for weight loss is needed. It argues that losing weight, especially for women, is never just about the food. It is always about a woman’s psychology as well. Adherence to a weight-loss regimen and personal change are psychological matters that must be addressed by using psychology to lose weight. Dieting and weight loss as they are currently practiced are not only insufficient, but they require too much self-control and willpower, which has made the weight-loss process terribly arduous and ripe for failure. So in addition to the primary goal of losing unwanted weight, there needs to be the equally important goal of using the least possible amount of self-control and willpower to effect change. With the goal of making the weight-loss process much less dependent on willpower and self-control, the paper then points out how to implement this goal. It takes traditional weight-loss issues and, using the principles and practices of psychology, illustrates how to successfully resolve these issues more automatically, and without the need for such self-defeating effort.

Class Action Lawyers Who Sued Big Tobacco are Suing Junk Food Giants

While not a fan of litigation lawyers, I believe suing junk food manufacturers holds valuable promise and is necessary. The least expensive way to materially improve healthcare is by reducing consumption of junk food (minimal nutrient value as a ratio to calories). Health warning labeling on processsed foods as emerged on cigarettes after litigation could improve public health.

Low Testosterone – Health Implications and Natural Remedies for Low T

If a man’s energy, drive and ambition have tanked along with his love life, increasing low testosterone — or what some doctors call "low T" — is only half the battle. Testosterone alone is not enough. There's another piece to the puzzle that most guys — and doctors — miss. Adding that extra piece gives a man more than just a temporary bump in energy. It gives him the kind of swagger most men can only wish for and restores vibrant life rejuvenating energy.

Wheatgrass

Wheatgrass is considered by many one of nature’s land based superfoods. It provides chlorophyll, amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and enzymes. It derives from the cotyledons (the embryo within the seed of a plant) of the common wheat plant. It is often found in juice bars served alone in one ounce shots (they taste exactly like the smell of fresh cut grass) or mixed in with other fruit or vegetable drinks. Wheatgrass is often found in superfood concentrate supplements as are barley grass, oat grass, chlorella and spirulina. Many claim wheatgrass has unique curative properties originating from Wheatgrass proponent Schnabel who in the 1940s claimed that wheatgrass’s overall nutritional value to that of ordinary garden vegetables is a ratio of 1:23.

ADHD – Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

The most commonly diagnosed childhood disorder is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). ADHD is a developmental disorder characterized by inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. Typical treatment involves drugs that increase dopamine and serotonin levels in the brain - two key nuerotransmitters that improve behavior. We believe most doctors are not fully aware of natural nutrients that target brain performance and nuerotransmitter balancing and production. These brain targeted nutrients should be considered before prescribing drugs when possible.
