The following article just came across my desk and I was so pleased with the writer that I wanted all of you to get this, even if some of you get it twice.
Bottom line is NUTRITIONAL supplement medicine is very safe. You almost can't hurt yourself with them. Pharmaceutical medicine is dangerous, even if you are very careful with them and do as your doctor tells you to.
For the details presented very eloquently by Dr. Saul read on.
Have a great week.
Dr. David I Minkoff, M.D.
Media Medicine: Have You No Sense of Decency?
by Andrew W. Saul, Editor
(OMNS July 27, 2017) They picked the wrong day to announce that a "Study finds 275,000 calls to poison control centers for dietary supplement exposures." I am just in the mood to take this on.
Why? Because the same poison control centers report zero deaths from any dietary supplement. See for yourself at http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v13n02.shtml
Now take a look at the supplement-bashing article at http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/318613.php . Do a quick search for the word "death." You will find it mentioned once in regard to the botanical yohimbe. But it is presented as a possibility, not as a reported occurrence. That is simply because there were no deaths from yohimbe. And no deaths from any other nutritional supplement. Again, confirmation is at http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v13n02.shtml, where the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service states:
"The most recent (2015) information collected by the U.S. National Poison Data System, and published in the journal Clinical Toxicology , shows no deaths whatsoever from dietary supplements. . . Additionally, there were zero deaths from any amino acid or herbal product. This means no deaths at all from blue cohosh, echinacea, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, kava kava, St. John's wort, valerian, yohimbe, Asian medicines, ayurvedic medicines, or any other botanical. There were zero deaths from creatine, blue-green algae, glucosamine, chondroitin, or melatonin. There were zero deaths from any homeopathic remedy."
So where are the bodies?
In hospitals, that's where. Within the United States, every single year, 225,000 people are killed in hospitals, by hospitals. That is over 600 dead each day.
- 275,000 supplement phone calls, and not one death.
- 225,000 hospital-caused deaths, and nary a ripple of concern in the media.
Dr. Springer Hosts Talk on Inflammation
Inflammation is widely acknowledged as the cause of accelerated aging, degeneration, pain and a host of chronic diseases limiting people's lives.
Dr. Springer will reveal the underlying causes of inflammation in the body and what can be done to actually correct these problems instead of simply trying to manage the symptoms.
When: Wednesday, August 16 @ 6:30pm
Where: Nature's Food Patch 1225 Cleveland Street, Clearwater, FL 33755
Dr. Springer Testimonial
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Springer for a year and a half now and it is amazing the work he does. He’s been helping me with my thyroid issues and weight gain. With the correct supplements we are fixing my hypothyroidism before it gets too far and needs prescription medication. With the help of the Paleo Diet and Dr. Springer, I’ve lost 25lbs and my thyroid is in good shape.”
Aging isn’t fun for anyone. As another birthday comes around we think about how old we really feel. The older we get the more our physical and mental abilities deteriorate. We may feel older than we are and that’s not encouraging as we want to always feel like we can do anything!
LifeWorks offers a test that monitors the energy production within the body and the results let us know what areas need improvement.
Bio-Energy Testing measures how well your mitochondria are functioning. Every cell in the body contains thousands of tiny bubble-like mitochondria. When mitochondria are not functioning optimally, they can be the root cause of every disease, obesity, and even the very process of aging itself. For this reason, the information from Bio-Energy Testing can be used to determine what you need to do to correct any underlying issues that you may not be aware of.
How Does It Work
The Bio-Energy test measures the amount of oxygen your body uses and the amount of carbon dioxide it produces, firstly at rest and then at different exertion levels while you are exercising on a bike. For people with chronic conditions who cannot exercise, a reading taken at rest will be sufficient.
The amount of oxygen the body is using will indicate the efficiency of the mitochondria, and the carbon dioxide production determines fat metabolism.
By measuring the ratio of oxygen consumption to carbon dioxide production, optimum carbohydrate intake can be determined.
Bio-Energy Testing analyses an enormous amount of data and calculates your energy production dynamics (or metabolism) when resting and exercising.
Who Should Be Tested?
- People who not only want to live a long time but also want to live in a state of optimum health, too.
- Seniors who want to re-capture the energy of their youth and also want to live without the constraints of being incapacitated or sick.
- People with degenerative disease, since this is usually caused by the slowing of energy production.
- People who are overweight or who wish to lose weight. By measuring metabolism, you can exactly target the number of calories you can eat and still lose weight.
- Athletes who want to measure their cardio fitness so they can maximize their workouts.

“I have majorly enjoyed my time in the HOCATT room with Amelia. She will do whatever it takes to make you comfortable and feel great when you are done. I always feel good when I finish the procedure. I have found that not only do you need to heal the body, but also the mind and the soul. Amelia has been great at assisting me in doing that. When I’m with her, we laugh and cry and she definitely is someone I’ll always remember who has told me I will get better. I am about ½ way there but know I am working on a full recovery. She even gives me great keto diet recipes. A great person that I love spending time with. Thanks for all you do to make me feel like a million bucks.”
