My shocking new ally in the war against sugar
Dear Reader,

Looks like our tour through the Twilight Zone isn't quite over yet. Because I've got another bit of bizarre news today. One that's almost as absurd as Wonderbread being the next breakout probiotic. And it comes courtesy of none other than Coca-Cola.

Coke has just launched a new beverage--amusingly named Coca-Cola Life--into the UK market. Is it sugar-free? Of course not. But it IS sweetened--in part--with stevia. And it's a part of what looks to be a genuine attempt at sugar reduction.

The trial run of this new product took place last year in South America. Which is ironic considering years ago, when Pepsi was opening up a bottling plant in Brazil, the Brazilian government actually wanted them to use stevia as a sweetener. At the time, Brazil was the world's leading producer of stevia. But Pepsi still refused. Why? Well, perhaps the fact that Monsanto was their supplier of artificial sweetener had something to do with it.

But I digress...

Honestly, I'm pretty excited about Coke's new initiative. Because like it or not, reformulating products and reprogramming people's taste buds is going to be a major key to making any sort of gains where public health is concerned.

After all, we only have so many options available in the face of this worldwide obesity crisis.

And since no one seems to want to regulate sugar or tax the foods making our nation fat and unhealthy, perhaps this will at least help spread the word and steer the focus away from sugar. (I just hope Coca Cola doesn't have something else up its sleeve with this move. Unfortunately, even stevia may not be safe in their greedy clutches.)

But you know what they say. If you can't beat 'em... join 'em.

I'm sure I told you this story before, but when ex-Mayor Bloomberg lost his bid to ban super-sized soft drinks in NYC, a patient of mine (who is a big executive with Coca-Cola) offered a pretty compelling reason for the failure. He told me that the legislation bottomed out because instead of working with Big Soda to improve the public health, Bloomberg opted to go around them and force their hand.

Personally, I would have done the same thing. But the ultimate fate of the soda ban does a good job of demonstrating who really has the power, doesn't it?

So maybe we need to try to skin this cat a different way. Perhaps it is time we start sleeping with the enemy. You've got to start somewhere, right? And I think stevia-sweetened soda is a great FIRST step--even if it is just a baby step.

Don't get me wrong. I still hate Coca-Cola--and I always will. Stevia or no, their products are anything but healthy. And if I had my way, they'd be flat out illegal.

But the reality is that they are a massive company with world-wide influence. And no, I don't expect them to start using that power for good instead of profit anytime soon. But I'll take what I can get at this point. Because if Coke can make a profit while actually doing something goodeveryone wins.

It's going to take time--a generation, at least. But stevia is a safe, plant based natural alternative to sugar. In the past, it's been difficult for big companies to use--but that has gotten easier and easier over the years. And now it looks like it's stevia's time to shine.

Until next time,

Dr. Fred

Dear Reader, 

It's the secret weapon my patients swear by for their health. And it's the one ingredient I never, ever cook without. 

I'm talking about macadamia nut oil. 

I've been passionate about the benefits of this unique oil for years. And now I'm thrilled to announce the availability of my very own brand--NuLogic Foods Macadamia Nut Oil

It wasn't easy. For more than a year, I scoured the globe searching for a source that met my exacting standards. But the final result was well worth it. 

I found a premium, virgin macadamia nut oil--from East Africa. This area of the globe boasts ideal growing conditions for macadamia nuts. And once the nuts are harvested, they're cold-pressed and filtered to deliver all the flavor and benefits you come to expect from high-quality macadamia nut oil. 

The result is a clean, nutty, delicious oil. It's rich, buttery, and complements any dish you add it to. 

It has a tremendously high smoke point. Perfect for safely sautéing, baking--and almost any cooking method you can think of. 

But most of all, it's absolutely packed with the healthiest fats you can eat--monounsaturated fatty acids, or MUFAs. Research shows that a diet rich in MUFAs can help...

    ✔Keep blood sugar steady
    ✔Protect your brain and helps preserve your memory
    ✔Safeguard your heart
    ✔Boost your metabolism, helping you shed excess pounds--and keep them off

In other words, macadamia nut oil tastes great, is easy to use, and couldn't be better for you. 

This magical trifecta hooked me from my first taste. And I've been recommending it to my patients--and to you--ever since. 

If you've already been using macadamia nut oil, my new premium, virgin NuLogic Foods Macadamia Nut Oil will absolutely blow you away (the way it did for me)! And, if you haven't, well--this is the perfect time to try it. 

I promise, you won't be disappointed. In fact, after a few days, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it! 

Use it for your stir-frys. Omelets. Even drizzled directly on top of your salads. It's the secret ingredient your recipes have been missing. And you'll never want your kitchen to be without it again. So do your taste buds--and your health--a favor. Order your bottle of NuLogic Foods Macadamia Nut Oil now

The pill-free cure for fibromyalgia
Dear Reader,

I have quite a few patients with fibromyalgia. In fact, the first patient I saw this morning suffers from this condition. And it's notoriously hard to tackle. So I'm always excited anytime I come across a story that gives hope for some much-needed relief.

Which is exactly what the latest research offers. Dr. Winfried Hauser presented his findings recently at the European League Against Rheumatism Congress 2014. And he concluded that fibromyalgia patients should receive individualized treatment that includes drug-free approaches.

Why? Because, according to Dr. Hauser, they're more effective than pharmacological "treatment."

In fact, when researchers asked patients for a "top 10" list of the most beneficial fibromyalgia therapies, drugs didn't even make the cut.

But when they were asked to list the "top 10" most harmful therapies? Well, this listonly featured drugs.

Obviously, fibromyalgia sufferers know drugs don't work. So when will doctors learn?

Just to put this in perspective, the patient I saw this morning was on four different medications for her fibromyalgia when I met her. But today, after three months of intense nutritional interventions and supplementation--not to mention stopping all four of those drugs-she is a new woman.

However, there was one therapy I prescribed that she initially resisted. She said she was too tired for it. But I insisted anyway. And looking back, I think it was the very thing that made the most significant difference in her fibromyalgia.

I'm talking about exercise.

I insisted that she start an exercise regimen. And the new study I told you about above proved the wisdom of that prescription.

According to Dr. Hauser's presentation, after a review of the literature, researchers found that aerobic exercise is the most powerful weapon against fibromyalgia. And, as you're well aware by now, the benefits of exercise last for years. Whereas drugs only "work" while you're taking them. (If they work at all, that is.)

Of course, when I recommended this "treatment" to my patient (and others suffering from fibromyalgia), I wasn't doing it because I had read about it in a journal. I was doing it because I knew it would help transform a sick patient back into a well person. And, as always, it worked like a charm.

Until next time,

Dr. Fred

The surprising power of a well-timed meal
Dear Reader,

When I say the words "circadian rhythm," the first thing that comes to mind is probably sleep.

And it's certainly true that circadian rhythms are responsible for regulating your body's sleep/wake cycles.

But scientists are just starting to learn how intricate the gears in your body's internal clock actually are. And some of their latest findings are pretty amazing.

For instance, recent research suggests you may actually be able to adjust your body's circadian rhythms with food. And well-timed meals may be the key to keeping your internal clock on track.

According to this new research, insulin release is the factor behind this effect. So what does that mean for you on a practical level? It means that you may be able to tackle insomnia simply by adjusting your eating schedule.

Eating three square meals a day, at regular intervals helps keep your insulin release on a steady schedule. And that, in turn, helps regulate your body's internal clock. Which should translate into less insomnia and more restful sleep.

As I've said before, lack of sleep and out-of-whack circadian rhythms can have catastrophic consequences for your health. So this kind of "clock adjustment" could be a very simple way to avoid a health disaster.
