Those who have long paid attention to nutrition, and the benefits of nutrition-based medicine, know the importance of that blue-green pigment present in marine microalgae—elevating foods like spirulina and chlorella to super-food status. That said, many do not know of or give appropriate credit to, another microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis—commonly known as a dark red pigment that is the richest known source of the carotenoid2 Astaxanthin. This unique substance...

After more than 30 professional years researching, writing about, and managing my own blood sugar imbalance, I still believe gum care is among the most important and least appreciated aspects of self-management for diabetes, metabolic and insulin resistance syndromes, and many immune system disorders. Studies keep showing how gum disease (periodontal infection) and diabetes are a reflection of each.

Severe gum disease (periodontitis) is known to actually be a major...

Okay, so you're wondering what in the heck is Dr. Gloria going to dissect now in her Health Detective investigative work? Well, it’s about helping you to choose healthy choices during the holidays rather than health-depleting ones. I’m going to provide you with gluten-free, nightshade-free, dairy-free alternatives to make those holiday meals just as tasty as the traditional unhealthy, high fat ones.

Here it goes…quick and easy…

This isn’t some newfangled health idea; they teach it at Stanford University! A Stanford professor is teaching his students about the mind-body connection and the relationship between stress* and disease. The head of the Psychiatry Department at Stanford said, among other things, that one of the best things that a man could do for his health is to be married to a woman, whereas for a woman, one of the best things she could do for her health was to nurture her relationships with her...

We’ve heard about our school nutrition programs banning sugary beverages because of the immediate need to combat childhood obesity—currently in epidemic proportions in the U.S. That said, there’s a sneaky legal way manufacturers are using to offer reduced-calorie milk drinks like chocolate milk, for example. The ban was placed on added sugar or high fructose corn syrup but wait until you read what the industry is up to!

The claims that labeling like...

New research from the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute discovers a little-known, or little-connected, factor that contributes to developing type 2 diabetes. Most of us know that exercise and a healthy diet low in sugars and grains are key diabetes-preventing life style “musts.” What is not often known is that the amount and quality of sleep is also vital in protecting against developing the disease, managing it and, in many cases, actually reversing it!

If you’re like most of us, you’ve had challenges with sleeping at one time or another. The National Sleep Foundation (NSF) reported in their 2010 study that only four in 10 respondents got a good night’s sleep most nights. The NSF, warned about making the health-depleting mistake of resorting to sleeping pills — at best ineffective, at worst dangerous!

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) collected data that showed over-the-counter sleep products really do...

Having dealt with thousands of clients with inflammatory disorders, I find there is one connection most do not make before consulting with me—inflammation and their thyroid health. When a thyroid disorder is diagnosed, hypothyroidism resulted from lack of iodine in their food/supplements and from the inflammation in general. There is confusion about hypothyroid and the diagnosis of Hashimoto’s autoimmune thyroiditis…allow me to clarify.

This investigative report is especially close to my heart—many of my family members and younger siblings are type 2 diabetics; I battle high blood sugar constantly. I have been able to maintain safe levels through strict carbohydrate and sugar restriction along with nutraceutical supplements, however, it does requires discipline and constant monitoring.

What most people do not understand is the intimate connection between liver health and diabetes; hopefully this report will...

A while ago I wrote an article about ocular migraines; more people read the article than any other article I’ve ever written. Having had more than my share of eye issues, and consulting with clients who are also experiencing disorders that many times we don’t understand, this investigative report shines the light on yet another serious eye disorder that is occurring more than we’d like to admit—especially among baby boomers and those with compromised immune systems and...

  • was considered universal medicine for destroying bacteria and viruses before the onslaught of synthetic drugs?
  • has been used for centuries for wound healing; especially during war time?

Admit it or not, chocolate is on the mind of most of us, especially in February. That said, everything must be in moderation for chocolate to provide health-enhancing benefits rather than health-depleting disorders.

Chocolate is made from plants—it contains many of the health benefits of dark vegetables—antioxidant-rich flavonoids which protect the body from aging caused by free-radicals that can lead to heart disease. Dark chocolate contains a large number of...

Detoxification is a primary bodily function, not some newfangled process—our body does it consistently to neutralize, transform, and eliminate toxins. Detox is doing something to improve and optimize functions of our organs of detoxification and elimination.

When we reduce the body’s overall toxic burden we literally assist the body by providing “tools” necessary to support and rejuvenate currently overburdened systems attempting to deal with the toxic load;...

In the July issue (page 28) I reported on the dangers of synthetic chemical fragrances, the number of people affected in one way or another, symptoms manifested from fragrance exposure, and current research on their toxicity.

This month I’m listing the most common chemicals so that you can use this as a guideline and, hopefully, begin to take seriously the “toxic soup” to which we...

All major news agencies are reporting the latest warning about levels of arsenic in a food staple for most of the world—rice. I’ve previously written blogs on this topic in order to particularly warn mothers to limit the amount of rice fed to infants and children. Now with another round of new findings and warnings, it’s important we take note and learn some precautions that could help reduce this carcinogenic toxic element in our food supply.

There are three chemicals which have finally caught the attention of medical researchers and public health officials— Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA, aka C8), polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS). Okay, so now you're thinking, "what in the heck are they and where are they found"?

They are stable compounds used in a large variety of products that make our life easier; albeit not healthier. Their presence in the environment, and the...

Why is a doctor of natural health writing about mangos? Because I work with clients who are among the most reactive to foods and the environment. Many of my clients were having strange reactions and it wasn’t until I researched what they had in common that we all realized it was mangos. My hope in sharing this information is to shed some light on what to watch for if you experience food responses and you’re searching for clues to the underlying causes.

Our diet is the total sum of what we consume; nutrition is the benefit of what we consume.

In this age of readily available global information it is still confusing, for both patient and doctor, when they read articles about vitamin, mineral and electrolyte replacements. Many argue that if you eat right, you shouldn't need supplements. This attitude exists because of the confusion between diet and nutrition-Equally important is not only what we eat but also how our body...

It's that time of year again—holiday parties, celebratory meals and extra sweets loaded with sugar. Those special occasions easily become sweet deceptions once you understand the health-depleting effects of what you consume in the way of sugar.

Years ago we had little, if any, choice for tasty natural sugar alternatives. Today with new discoveries and technology, your health food store or grocer's natural food section offers several choices to satisfy even the most...
