It’s never too late to teach old dogs new tricks. What we can all learn from simple diet changes.
Here is a video of the story of how former US President Bill Clinton made significant changes in his diet and health after suffering from heart disease in this interview with David Letterman. “When you get to be our age, all you got left is bright clothes and BS,” said Clinton to Letterman, adding, “and you’ve got a corner on the BS market.” Both Letterman and Clinton had fairly invasive heart surgery. Clinton talks about having given up meat and dairy. Clinton credits those dietary changes with saving his life.
Since it’s Super Bowl Weekend, I just thought I would take a moment to share this Vegan Pizza Recipe from the Forks Over Knives Plan.
If you like a pizza that kicks with flavor, you will love this recipe. The creamy sauce is rich without the added fat in most cream sauces, and the sun-dried tomatoes and olives add a perfect tangy-salty punch.

Current statistics show that one in eight women in the US will develop breast cancer in their lifetime and that those rates are rising. The medical community, supported by the NIH (National Institutes of Health) now suggests that women begin annual mammogram screening at age 40. But nearly 12,000 women under the age of 40 will develop aggressive breast cancer this year even though they are considered at lower risk. New evidence makes it clear that by the time many tumors that are detected by a mammogram have been present and growing for several years. You need to know that safe screening options that provide reliable early detection results are available.
At Alternative Primary Care in Crystal River, we feel strongly that a proactive approach to breast health saves both lives and breasts. David Bibbey, L.Ac. believes patients need to be well informed about safe screening and detection methods that give women accurate data about their health. This is why Alternative Primary Care regularly invites an expert team visit the office to provide Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging ‘DITI’ in the office.
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging – DITI is a 15 minute noninvasive screening test. It requires no squeezing, no contact and no radiation. A thermal (temperature sensing) camera is used to scan the body for signs of potential problematic changes. It is a valuable procedure that alerts you and your physician to changes that can indicate early signs of breast disease. DITI offers a unique look into the body and identifies breast health changes, which are typically not identified by self-examination, physician examination, and mammography alone.
An “Excitotoxins” is a big word for any substance like msg that excites cells to the point of damage. “Excite -O- Toxin”.
Dr. Russell Blaylock, is the author of the 1995 book Excitotoxicity: The Taste that Kills, in his book he cites possible associations between excitotoxins and a slew of serious health conditions, including:
For example MSG is an Excitotoxin. MSG goes by 30 different names and is found in many product, not just Chinese food. There are 70 excitotoxins lurking in most packaged and processed foods. This includes soups, sauces, gravy mixes, frozen dinners, diet foods, beverages, chips, and fast foods. The main culprits are MSG, aspartame (NutraSweet), cysteine, hydrolyzed protein, and aspartic acid.

Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a condition in which you have an uncontrollable urge to move your legs, usually due to leg discomfort. It typically happens in the evenings or nights while you’re sitting or lying down. Moving eases the unpleasant feeling temporarily.
Restless legs syndrome, now known as restless legs syndrome/Willis-Ekbom disease (RLS/WED), can begin at any age and generally worsens as you age. It can disrupt sleep — leading to daytime drowsiness — and make traveling difficult.
Simple self-care steps and lifestyle changes can help you. Acupuncture treatment and proper nutrition can also reduce symptoms. If you or a loved one suffer with RLS, then please contact me to discuss a treatment plan that includes acupuncture, and nutritional advice.
