Can you drink beer, vodka and other alcohol and not get a nasty headache?
But if you drink red wine, you best have some motrin or wet cold socks on your feet the next day to pull you through? You're not alone.
Red wine headaches are no fun. The cause is likely due to the sulfites put in them. A professor of mine practiced in the Napa Valley so she saw patients present with red wine headaches all...the...time.
What did she do for them?
She knew she couldn't tell wine makers and wine lovers to stop drinking wine. So she dug deep and looked for the cause of red wine headaches.
She found one.
She said it worked all the time. Instead of going to the supplement shelves and buying a multi with molybdenum in there, she recommend getting straight up molybdenum as the amount in a multi is not enough to replenish a deficiency.
Molybdenum is not the most absorbable mineral on the planet Read More
As a former rower for the University of Washington Huskies, I witnessed numerous teammates obtain injuries - including myself.
If only I had known about yoga prior to beginning rowing, I would have been much better off. I would have done the Sun Salutation before and after practice along with numerous other poses and stretches.
I found this great article about Common Rowing Injuries.
Stretch Stretch Stretch.
Also strengthen the heck out of your abdominal muscles. If they are weak, then your lower back falls to poor posture while rowing. Once our coach made us do 700 sit ups of different types, back injuries fell dramatically. We also stopped using hatchet blades during practice. Those things are nasty but sure make the boat go fast.
Be safe. Love the sport - but be safe.

Scholarships are great to receive. This year I was fortunate to be a recipient of the Bastyr Student Scholarship Award.
Even more fortunate, was to hear Dr Littleton's speech to the award recipients. It was outstanding. I have it here for you to enjoy as well.
Kent Littleton, MS, ND, is a Bastyr University alumnus and an associate professor in the basic sciences department, where he teaches biochemistry. Due to his creativity and generosity in raising funds to support scholarships at Bastyr, Dr. Littleton was invited to be the keynote speaker at this fall's Scholarship Dinner, an annual event that celebrates both scholarship donors and the student scholars who proved themselves worthy of support. Kent's very funny and insightful speech brought everyone to their feet.

If we can cause disease manifesting in our bodies, then why cannot we manifest health????
Jeanne Achterberg, Ph.D. came to my medical school last Friday - a little woman with graying hairs and slightly funky clothing. Her appearance was not strikingly powerful.
Yet when she stepped up to the podium and began speaking, all eyes were focused on her. An eloquent speaker with much to say.
She was asked, why do research on imagery as imagery has been used successfully for centuries, she stated: I am a scientist in a scientifically driven society. Yes imagery works and we know it works. Science simply backfills what we already know. If we want to change how
I found this article via my daily forum posts which I receive from Dr Garry Gordon, MD He has an excellent forum for health professionals. I found it highly relevant and a necessary post as I know many of you are wanting to get a flu shot.
Think about it. Do you really need it? Do you really want the toxic mercury laden flu vaccine which is basically worthless?

Met with a patient today and reviewed her Urinary Toxic Metals lab report. She has 7 metals showing on her report with mercury and lead into the very high exposure column.
Her occupation: Dental Assistant.
Her husband's occupation: Dentist
In her mouth: Mercury Amalgams (since removed and replaced with porcelin)
You tell me.
Her husband doesn't think so. My goodness man - wake up.
She has been on a 6 month protocol removing lead, mercury and the other 5 metals. However, the natural protocol is not working that well. Either she is constantly re-exposing herself to these toxic metals or the natural protocol which she is following is not potent enough. She seems healthy
A patient presenting with intense constant full body pain came in last week to the clinic.
She was about 54 years old, a bit overweight, medium height and had an absolute flat dull depressed appearance - which one sees in someone in chronic pain. She explained that it takes her 20 minutes to get out of bed as she has to lift each limb carefully and slowly due to the pain. She wakes every 2 hours in pain and has to get up and move about otherwise she would not be able to get up at all later. She walked in pain as both her knee joints were in pain. She was constantly shifting in her chair during the patient
There is a huge link between low selenium and thyroid issues.
These thyroid issues can be: Hypothyroid Hashimoto's Thyroiditis
If someone is low in selenium, the thyroid hormone does not get activated well. There is Thyroid Stimulating Hormone which triggers the thyroid to release T4. The problem is T4 is not active. T4 gets converted to T3 to become active.
What makes T4 -> T3?
Yep - selenium.
Selenium is found in high amounts in Brazil nuts. You get about 400 mcg of selenium in about 7 Brazil nuts.
If you want to get selenium in a supplement, make sure you get seleniomethionine. It is the superior bio-available form. It isn't easy to find unfortunately. Amazing how many crappy supplements there are out there.
Selenium is also a huge component of your immune system. If low in selenium, your immune function is compromised allowing it to act inappropriately. Read More
