A book doesn’t know if its author is in left field

 Healthy by Nature radio show this week
Our guests are two of my fellow speakers at the Gluten Free Allergen Free Expo in Plano, TX. Kristin Selby Gonzalez is the President/Chairman of Autism Hope Alliance and is the mother of a boy with autism. She has seen him progress from very withdrawn and no language, to a playful and interactive boy who now speaks in five word sentences. Kristin is the host of the newly released DVD, Let’s Go Shopping, Special Food for Special Needs and is the director of autism education for the highly respected enzyme company, Enzymedica. (Kristin is certified in the Wilbarger Protocol and the Body Ecology Diet.)

Nancy Lee Bentley is a nationally-known expert in holistic health as well as being a chef, food scientist, nutrition specialist, writer and teacher. She is the author of Truly Cultured, Rejuvenating Taste, Health and Community with Naturally Fermented Foods. Not surprisingly, we will discuss fermented foods.Call the live show with questions at 1-800-281-8255. Click here to find podcasts, show archives and how to listen nationwide.

Slight of hand
I really don’t like giving this author publicity because it appears that he is either just very unskilled at investigative journalism or, more likely, a disinformation tool of the pharmaceutical industry. In either case, he makes a whole lot of positive science on nutrition and alternative health disappear. Because some of you may have read his book (Do You Believe in Magic? The Sense and Nonsense of Alternative Medicine), or seen excerpts in publications like The Atlantic or heard reports on the news, I want to link you to this thoughtful rebuttal by the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University.

Heartburn or Acid Reflux?
I’m giving a seminar on the subject this Sunday. Commercials about heartburn and acid reflux medications make the drugs seem safe for long term use but they are not—they are only proven safe for use for a few weeks. Evidence is mounting that they can cause serious conditions from hip fracture and dementia to heart disease and cancer. The drugs may stop pain but they do not actually solve the problem that caused the condition…and may even make those underlying problems worse. Learn about the real causes and how to fix them. The talk is part of the Gluten Free Allergen Free Expo Saturday and Sunday in Plano. If you cannot attend, consider reading my book on which I base the talk.

Save the date
John Young, MD and I are each giving a free lecture on feeling well and having energy. The event is the afternoon of Saturday, November 16 in the Dallas area. Details next week.

Thank you
Last week I asked for your help for James McLester. Now it is much easier to vote for his band. (You can do so every 24 hours) Click here to vote. Thank you to those of you who have already started voting. They have a very good chance of being selected to play at SpiritFest DFW. Let’s make sure they win.

Last Week Follow-up
LINK to that show in the archives. Dr. Tom O’Bryan is a “Sherlock Holmes” of chronic disease & metabolic disorders. It may have surprised a lot of listeners when he told us that many people with symptoms as diverse as heartburn, gas, irritable bowel, fatigue, headaches, joint pain, weight gain, osteoporosis, infertility, lupus, skin problems, etc. feel much better when they stop eating wheat, rye and barley. Dr. O’Bryan talked about gluten, a component of those grains. It has been shown to cause or at least worsen dozens of very common conditions. He is also responsible for coordinating an exciting online lecture series featuring prestigious speakers on gluten. It is FREE. Click here to register.
