New Findings: Non-GMO Eaters Recover from Obesity, Anxiety, and Chronic Diseases

If you’ve been wondering if you really need to switch to non-GMO foods, a new peer-reviewed article may change your mind—and your life. View a powerful and informative video interview of Michelle Perro, MD, a top pediatrician who witnesses in her practice every day the same type of health improvements reported in the survey.

*The links mentioned in the video are listed below. You can also see them on this page, and sign up there to get advance notice about the new video that will be premiered soon, as well as the ebook offered. 

*Find out more about Michelle Perro, MD and her book “What’s Making Our Children Sick?” due out in January 2018.The book is available for pre-order now!

A new article, “Survey Reports Improved Health After Avoiding Genetically Modified Foods,” focuses on a survey conducted by the Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT) of more than 3250 people who switched to a largely non-GMO diet and reported improvements in 28 health conditions. An astonishing 85% of respondents reported improvements in their “digestive problems,” the ailment most commonly cited. Of these respondents, 80% said their digestive issues were “significantly improved”, “nearly gone”, or “completely recovered”.

Remarkably, at least half the respondents also reported recovery from fatigue, obesity, brain fog, food allergies, and anxiety or depression. Access the article with the complete list of conditions that improved.

What is it about GMOs that may be damaging our health? The article, peer-reviewed and published in the International Journal of Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine, lays out the known side effects, ranging from increased allergens and toxins in the food to high residues of Roundup® herbicide. (see more about the dangers of Roundup.) Most GMOs are designed to withstand heavy doses of Roundup, which, according to the World Health Organization, is a known carcinogen. Jeffrey M. Smith, the article’s author, cites evidence of many other serious health dangers of this popular herbicide as well as of GMOs.

Simply eating non-GMO isn’t always sufficient to protect your help, says Smith, since many non-GMO crops are also doused with Roundup just before harvest.

Find out how to protect yourself and your family. View either the easy-to-read summary or the scientific, peer-reviewed article itself.

Make sure to watch or record the Jeffrey Smith interview on The Doctors on Wednesday, October 8- we need high numbers to let the media networks know that glyphosate harm is a MAINSTREAM issue.

Monsanto’s Roundup: Could the foods you eat or the weed killer you use give you cancer?

On Wednesday, November 8th, the national TV show The Doctors will spend an entire hour-long episode discussing the controversy around Monsanto and its herbicide, Roundup.

Could the foods you eat or the weed killer you use give you cancer? In a Doctors’ exclusive, they discuss a lawsuit claiming the most widely-used herbicide in the world, glyphosate, led to Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma in an alleged victim. Hear from the attorney in the case and the widow of a farmer who claims agricultural chemicals cut his life short. Find out why chemical companies say they stand by the safety of their product. The Doctors help you sort through the science and offer practical solutions starting in the grocery store!

The show’s guests include:
Jeffrey Smith, bestselling author of Seeds of Deception and Genetic Roulette, leading spokesperson on the health dangers of GMOs, and an expert on the ways Monsanto manipulates science to cover-up health impacts.

Brent Wisner, a lead attorney in federal litigation against Monsanto, in which thousands claim that exposure to Roundup caused non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The litigation forced Monsanto to release documents, emails, and texts, which, according to Wisner’s firm, “tell an alarming story of ghostwriting, scientific manipulation, collusion with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and previously undisclosed information about how the human body absorbs glyphosate [the main ingredient in Roundup].”

Teri McCall, a plaintiff in the lawsuit. Teri’s husband Jack, accompanied by the family dog Duke, regularly sprayed Roundup around their farm. Jack died of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, while Duke died of lymphoma.

Jeffrey Smith, the founder of the Institute for Responsible Technology, first appeared on The Doctors in 2015, after the World Health Organization’s expert committee made the determination that Roundup’s active ingredient glyphosate probably causes cancer. In that show, he faced off against Donna Farmer, Monsanto’s senior toxicologist, who dismissed the herbicide’s link to cancer saying, “I mean this very honestly, I am extremely highly confident in this product.” But according to Monsanto’s secret documents, says Smith, Farmer was far from confident in private.

“Functional and integrative medicine that is heart centered guides how I treat my patients with complex chronic illness. Biochemical imbalances, epigenetic expression, toxin exposure, microbial exposure and emotional imbalance are often key in unraveling the mystery of and treating chronic illness. Each of these aspects is different for each patient. Thus, with compassionate listening and cutting edge laboratory tests, I can create treatment plans that are highly individualistic and healing.” – Nafysa Parpia, ND

“Balance in all things is a major component of our health and happiness. If there is balance between our external and internal environments health will occur naturally. This balance is not fixed but is constantly shifting, requiring a certain level of attentiveness from us. Doing just enough to achieve balance is all that is required. Thus, doing less can be more.

Balance should also exist between physician and patient. When the communication is clear, honest, and compassionate, the process of healing is enhanced.”

How to Manage Chronic Stress from Natural Disasters

Twig’s StressLess Series for Getting Through Wildfires and Other Natural Disasters

Twig on a respite following the firestorm around his homestead – 2014.

Now with the urgency of the fires somewhat behind us, we have to find ways to move to the next phase, to keep from becoming trapped in the stress cycle. As usual, one of our patients had a great resource, and sent us a link to this podcast series, from Anthony Twig Wheeler, a therapist who lived through the Washington fires in 2014. He produced a series of podcasts on how stress, especially chronic, long lasting stress, such as that from recovering from a major fire event, affects the body. He also gives a series of things you can do to interrupt the unnecessary stress response that we can get locked into. I posted it on our Facebook page a few days ago, but want to bring it up again so everyone gets a chance to take advantage.

The podcasts are free, each are only 5-25 minutes long, and are intended to be listened to over days, so that you can put into play each tip that he gives. I have been listening to them since we got the suggestion, and am finding them incredibly helpful. Some of the things about the stress response I knew, some I was not aware of. Either way, the simple, practical, often physical actions to take have been deeply helpful for me, and I want to be sure everyone has a chance to use them. I find just playing one of the talks when I get stressed helps remind me to let go, and actually doing what he suggests takes it even further. If you find they help you, let Twig know. [Read more…]

Nebulized Glutathione offered at GMA for smoke irritation

Nebulizer treatmentsDue to the fires and amount of toxic smoke this past week, many people are finding that the smoke has caused lung irritation, chest constriction, asthma, coughing or wheezing. GMA is offering nebulized glutathione, a powerful antioxidant which acts as a powerful antioxidant and detoxifier for the lungs, protecting the whole respiratory tract from oxidative stress. Because many pulmonary diseases and respiratory related conditions are affected by deficient antioxidant status, poor oxygenation and/or impaired host defenses, glutathione is an excellent choice to support healthy lung function. Oral or IV glutathione will not be as effective for treating lungs as the nebulized glutathione.

With a nebulizer, glutathione is delivered as a fine mist into the upper respiratory tract and lungs through a mask that covers the nose and mouth or delivered directly into the lungs with a mouth piece. Each nebulizer treatment takes between 15-25 minutes.

In terms of side effects, glutathione is very safe. Some people will experience mild coughing and a unpleasant sulfur odor. However, for those who are sulfite sensitive, glutathione is contraindicated. If you aren’t sure if you are sulfite sensitive, sulfite strips can measure your urine. Those who test positive for sulfites should not use glutathione. Call the office at (707) 575-5180 to set up treatment. Phones are now open again and staff is on hand.
