Dr Goodyear Speaks at AFMA in Atlanta
Dr Goodyear was honored to speak at the American Functional Medicine Association Fall Conference in Atlanta. Dr Goodyear joined an all-star line up of speakers including: Eldred Taylor MD, David Zava PhD, Matthew Sandry MD, Tim Guilford MD, Russell Jaffe, MD PhD, Aristo Vojdani PhD and many others, at the Functional Medicine Conference in Atlanta. Combined, the speakers have published hundreds of scientific articles and books. Dr Goodyear lectured on the scientific evidence behind the causes of the Metabolic dysfunction of Metabolic Syndrome and presented a Functional Medicine approach for a healing strategy to Metabolic Syndrome. Some of the data presented in the presentation can be found in the prior video blog “Ins/outs of Metabolic Syndrome“. Dr Goodyear is next scheduled to speak at the A4M Functional and Regenerative Conference in Las Vegas on 12.12.14 on “ManBoobs to Metabolic Syndrome”.
The Walking Drugged
The walking drugged
“Drugs never cure disease. They merely hush the voice of nature’s protest, and pull down the danger signals she erects along the pathway of transgression. Any poison taken into the system has to be reckoned with later on even though it palliates present symptoms. Pain may disappear, but the patient is left in a worse condition, though unconscious of it at the time.” Daniel. H. Kress, M.D.
In honor of October, the upcoming new season of the Walking Dead and all zombie lovers everywhere, I want to discuss zombies. Not the hollywood version, but the real zombies. Zombies are real and present today. I have previously written about the growing zombie epidemic in our culture. The zombie epidemic continues to grow. The glaring new fact is that those effected are younger and younger. Now, our children are targeted.
Kansas has declared October Zombie Preparedness month. Could this be the real zombie apocalypse?
Confession of a Recovered Fat man–Lavender
The more I live the more I realize I don’t know.
The more I practice medicine, the more I realize I don’t know. The more I realize God does know.
Yard to Table is a category of blog posts through which I seek to highlight readily available natural therapies all around us. Not only do natural therapies work, I will highlight the mechanisms of their actions found in the science.
A recent personal experience highlights the power of natural healing right around us.
“Men are from Mars and women are from Venus”
—John Gray PhD
Women and men are very different. The concept seems fairly easy to grasp. Most get it. It seems obvious. Even the science supports it. However, this point seems to escape most in Medicine today.
The perfect example of this biochemical difference is found in Testosterone. The effects and risks of Testosterone in women stand in stark contrast to men. Low Testosterone is associated with an increased cardiovascular disease risk in men. Yet, elevated Testosterone is associated with an increased cardiovascular disease risk in women. A recent publication highlights the different Testosterone picture in women with obesity and Metabolic Syndrome (elevated Testosterone) and men with obesity and Metabolic Syndrome (low Testosterone).
Join Nan Sprouse as she discusses the quagmire of Testosterone in women in her latest video blog. No opinion here, just science.
Have you Heard of Einkorn?
Have Your Heard of Einkorn?
Einkorn. Now that is an interesting word; but what is it? It is an ancient variety of wheat primarily grown in Europe and is quite different than the modern wheat we in America are eating. However, it is beginning to gain some interest, and I will tell you why. Archeological findings have shown that people in the Fertile Crescent gathered wild einkorn wheat thousands of years ago. They realized that they could plant einkorn seeds and they began to grow this ancient wheat. The genetics of einkorn wheat has not changed since that time. However, other types of wheat have been created by hybridization. Like einkorn, most plants are diploid, which means they have two sets of 7 chromosomes. When other types of wheat were created, through ancient hybridization and more recent—genetic modification, additional sets of chromosomes were added. Following Einkorn, Emmer wheat was created 2000 years ago by the natural hybridization of two wild grasses with a result of 28 total chromosomes. Other wheat, Kamut and Duram wheat, are descendants of Emmer. Spelt was the result of the first wheat hybridization between cultivated Emmer and a wild grass, creating a species with 42 chromosomes. Now, back before 1960, we used to consume ancient wheat varieties such as Emmer, Einkorn and Kamut. However, almost all the wheat eaten today is high-yield dwarf wheat, which was developed by cross-breeding and genetic manipulation that started around 1960. Dwarf wheat has shorter stems and a quicker and greater yield than the ancient varieties. Thus, the modern dwarf wheat is more cost effective, has a higher yield, and can be grown more cheaply than the older varieties. For the wheat industry, the high-yield crop is obviously more profitable. But at what cost?
