Gut feelings
Dear Reader,

I think I must spend half my career saying "I told you so." And this is another one of those moments.

That's right. Another instance where complementary medicine has been so far ahead for so many years that it almost counts as malpractice for all the conventional doctors who've been out of the loop.

According to the latest "breaking" news story, it appears that probiotics may alter brain activity in healthy people.

This bit of "news" doesn't come as a shock to me. And probably doesn't to you, either.

But apparently it's a headline-worthy discovery. So let me tell you about this study so you can join me in the chorus of "I told you so," too.

The researchers looked at 36 healthy women with no known GI or psychiatric issues. They were split into three different groups.

Twice a day for four weeks, one group ate a serving of yogurt, containing five different live probiotic strains. The second group ate a serving of plain yogurt. And the third group received nothing.

All the women received MRIs before and after their respective interventions in order to assess brain activity and response to emotional attention tasks.

Results found that eating probiotic yogurt influenced activity in regions of the brain in charge of emotion and sensation processing. Which, of course, indicates that gut bacteria may have a larger bearing on your mood than you realized.

At the end of the day, there's little question that a daily dose of probiotics does a lot more than keep you regular.

That said, let me go on the record and say that I'm not the biggest fan of yogurt. It's packed with sugar and there are better ways to get more good bacteria into your gut.

Seeing as how Danone sponsored this study, though, I don't think anyone should be surprised at the delivery system the researchers chose.

That's not to say that their results warrant any undue skepticism. If anything, I'm surprised that we're only talking about this topic now.

While this may be the first proof we have of the gut-mind connection, this link has been suspected for as long as I've been practicing medicine. (Which, at this point, is getting too long to admit.)

Up to now, most of the research on probiotics has focused on their role in gut health. But our understanding of the gut's role in a number of biological processes continues to expand. (Most notably in areas like weight control and allergy and immune response--just to name a couple.)

There are just so many bacteria in our body that they must be doing something. And it's high time we figured out exactly what they do--because probiotics can be a pretty inexpensive way of healing ourselves.

On the flip side, we also have to learn to identify what makes our bacteria imbalanced in the first place. There are so many factors--from a poor diet to stress to pharmaceuticals--that can make it hard for these bacteria to do the work they're supposed to do.

But who knows how big of an impact even the smallest changes can make on your gut's environment? Good health starts with a healthy digestive tract. And we all have to start somewhere.

For my part, I always recommend a product similar to the one used in this study. It's a blend of pre- and probiotics that contains 10 different strains of live bacteria. (The one in this study only had five.)

It's called Dr. Ohirra's. And in my opinion, there's no better probiotic on the market.

Until next time,

Dr. Fred

98% of ALL Conventional Treatments FAIL!
The Medical Establishment has been lying to you.

Why? One reason: GREED!

Treating cancer in America is a $200 billion-a-year business. But natural cures can't be patented—so there's no profit from them—even if they do save countless lives.

You don't have to put up with it anymore. It's time you found out the truth about cancer—and discover natural treatments that can help you reclaim your health. Just click here.

How to Tell If You've Got a Fat FutureAre you destined to be obese? Read more here »

The food we eat is the foundation of a healthy, vibrant life. And when it comes to cooking healthy meals, there's an ingredient we all use that should be given MUCH more careful consideration...and that's the oil you cook with. 

The truth is, most people need an oil change! 

Most people today use vegetable oils, which is a mistake. They're over-processed with dangerous chemicals, trans-fats, and become even more dangerous when heated. 

And the overuse of vegetable oil in all the processed food on the shelves has resulted in an over-abundance of the pro-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids. This increase in omega 6 in the diet has been linked to the worldwide increase in obesity and chronic disease. 

Which is why I'm thrilled to be able to now offer MacNut(tm) Oil. Which is not only delicious, but good for you, too. 

The buttery taste; golden, yellow color; and rich nutritional profile completely set MacNut Oil apart from all other oils. 

While olive oil gets all the glory...when it comes to taste, nutrition, and ease and versatility of use MacNut Oil will win hands down, every time. 

MacNut Oil has the highest amount of monounsaturated fats--with about 80 percent. Those fats are one of the secrets of the heart-healthy "Mediterranean" way of eating. 

Macadamia nut oil is also low in the less-desirable omega-6 fatty acids. 

And because of its high smoke point--around 400 degrees F--macadamia nut oil is healthier to cook with. 

Even a light sauté can reach 350 degrees F, and most unprocessed oils start to decompose by that point, even extra virgin olive oil, whose smoke point is around 320 depending on the kind you use. In fact, the smoke point of olive oil can vary so much between the types used and the quality, it's difficult to know what you have, making even a light sauté a gamble. 

MacNut Oil, on the other hand, is safe for sautéing, baking, even pan frying--however you would want to use oil. There is no danger of those deadly trans-fatty acids and free radicals forming as they can with other cooking oils. 

But the real beauty of monounsaturated-rich macadamia nut oil lies in the fact that the flavor isn't overpowering. It's light and buttery. 

While it's strong enough to hold its own as a frying oil, it can also easily be used with delicate dishes such as fish, or as a finishing oil over salads. It's even great in many dishes that you wouldn't want to ruin with the assertive taste of olive oil--things like omelets, muffins, or pancakes. 

But beware,
not all macadamia nut oils are the same!
MacNut Oil is 100 percent Australian macadamia nut oil, made from the finest nuts. It is delicious and luxurious, just as they prefer it in the Hamptons. And, my patients tell me it is no more expensive than a comparable grade of extra virgin, estate-bottled olive oil (which is all you should use when using olive oil). 

MacNut Oil is the gold standard
of wholesome and natural macadamia nut oil...
Why Australia? Because macadamia trees are native to Australia. The nuts used to make MacNut Oil are grown in the ideal soil and under the ideal conditions to ensure that MacNut Oil is the best tasting macadamia nut oil on the market. 

This exquisite oil is mechanically pressed from macadamia nuts. The resulting all-natural oil is a superior product in taste, color, and health benefits. 

It naturally contains the antioxidant vitamin E, and no added preservatives are needed because of the high monounsaturated and low polyunsaturated fatty acids. 

Another added benefit in the way MacNut Oil is produced is that it's manufactured in a plant that is designed specifically for the production of macadamia nut oil, so it produces only the best finished product. With no risk of cross-contamination for people who are peanut sensitive. 

Think of it this way: Just as you would prefer olive oil from Italy and champagne from France, you should insist on MacNut Oil from Australia. 

Easy to use, easy to LOVE!
I learned how to use MacNut Oil simply by substituting it in my old standard recipes. And wow! What a difference it made! Just start to switch the oil you use in everyday cooking with MacNut Oil, to create a monounsaturated-rich diet. I promise it will be as if you're eating entirely new delicious foods--that's how much it enhances the flavor of any dish. 

Order MacNut Oil today

You'll love it so much, you'll use it for all your oil needs...I certainly do!

What I'm about to share with you is absolutely remarkable!

It's the story about a very unique, home-based evaluation process that isolates the ROOT CAUSE of your chronic Acid Reflux; and has been regarded by the medical and scientific community as:

Screen shot 2012-03-17 at 12.59.04 PM.png 

It's the TRUE story of how the lives of thousands of sufferers have dramatically changed because they now know why they feel the way they do; and why their doctors have 'missed the mark' by prescribing costly prescription drugs — many with dangerous side effects — to control painful Acid Reflux

It's the remarkable story of how Acid Reflux sufferers who were once a prisoner to costly and dangerous medications, chalky antacids, restrictive diets and other home-spun cures, have reversed what was once thought to be an irreversible condition. They finally know theROOT CAUSE of their chronic Acid Reflux.

The MAP is a technology originally developed by a team of space scientists at NASA to help identify the health of astronauts while off the planet, and has been been used by celebrities, professional athletes, CEO's and people from all over the world to identify the root cause of chronic, unresolved symptoms, like acid reflux and other digestive disorders.

A lesson in TACT
Dear Reader,

You may not know this, but there's currently a randomized, double-blind trial underway to investigate the benefits of chelation therapy--that is, the removal of toxic heavy metals from the body--against coronary artery disease.

It's called the Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy (TACT). And so far, results look promising... which, of course, has the "powers that be" very concerned.

After all, what would all those hospitals and doctors do if safe, natural means of heart disease prevention were actually proven effective?

For one thing, the number of coronary bypass procedures on the books would drop considerably. And, well... that's not good for business, now is it?

So naturally, they're looking for ways to diminish the importance of this simple and inexpensive treatment modality.

But before I get ahead of myself, let's look at the study details...

Researchers divided subjects into four different groups. One group received high-dose oral vitamin therapy--which featured a wide range of nutrients, including vitamins A, B, C, D, E, K, niacin, folate, calcium, magnesium, and zinc--along with chelation therapy.

Another group received placebo "vitamins" and active chelation therapy. Yet another received active vitamin therapy and placebo chelation therapy. The final group received placebo vitamin therapy and placebo chelation therapy.

Results showed that, compared to placebo, vitamin therapy yielded an 11 percent reduction in risk of death, heart attack, stroke, coronary revascularization surgery, and angina hospitalization.

Researchers dismissed this number as statistically insignificant--a conclusion that's hardly worth a headline. When did anyone claim that vitamins could do any of these things on their own, anyway?

Furthermore, what type of vitamins did this study use? In what doses? And where are our biggest allies against heart disease--coQ10 and fish oil--in this mix?

Without more details, this information only serves to distract us from TACT's realnewsworthy results.

As it turns out, active, combined chelation and vitamin therapy cut the same list of cardiovascular risks by a whopping 26 percent in comparison to placebo treatments. That's a huge reduction--and there's no drug on the market that can boast statistics like this.

But don't hold your breath waiting for the celebration to start. Because it's not happening anytime soon.

On the contrary, the researchers were all too quick to assert that these findingsshouldn't be interpreted as a triumph for alternative medicine. And that there's no place for these natural strategies in mainstream cardiology yet.

Why? Because "more study is still needed." Of course.

To which I ask: What more, exactly, do they need?

Heaven forbid, we offer patients something that is inexpensive, safe, and effective. We're doctors after all... isn't that our job???

These results indicate that chelation could potentially save us billions of dollars. In the current economic climate of this healthcare system, you'd think that would garner applause.

Instead, the so-called experts' statements on the study are littered with terms like "surprising" and "unexpected" and "caution."

If anything, their nervousness is palpable.

But here's a little tidbit the researchers will never admit publicly: They launched this trial to prove that chelation doesn't work. And now that they've proved that it does, they are beside themselves. In fact, there's even talk about pulling funds, in the interest of not wasting public money.

I've got news for you. Every trial is a waste of money until proven otherwise. And as far as I'm concerned, this particular study has delivered the goods.

Until next time,

Dr. Fred
