Massively Misunderstood Mineral

Healthy by Nature radio show THIS WEEK
We will talk about blood pressure with Jim LaValle, a nationally recognized clinical pharmacist, author, board certified clinical nutritionist, and founder of Metabolic Code Enterprises, Inc. He is the author of Your Blood Never Lies: How to Read a Blood Test for a Longer, Healthier Life, and the bestseller, Cracking the Metabolic Code: 9 Keys to Optimal Health.  Call the live show with questions at 1-800-281-8255

Who would have guessed?


Read this week’s blog to find out what the redacted mineral is in this shocking quote: Researchers studied the drinking water in 27 Texas counties. As reported in an excellent 2014 New York Times article entitled Should We All Take a Bit of Lithium?, the study demonstrated that “people whose water had the least amount of lithium had significantly greater levels of suicide, homicide and rape than the people whose water had the higher levels of lithium.” In fact, “The group whose water had the highest lithium  level had nearly 40 percent fewer suicides than that with the lowest lithium level.” The blog also covers more benefits, sources, studies and other details about it.

In last week’s show when we were talking about the benefits of sleep, I forgot to mention weight loss. And I had hoped to have time to mention that the Brain Light Pro seems to help people relax and sleep.

Quote of the week


“Nature makes things to heal, pharma makes them for money.”

 Special Feature 

You may have heard about 
CRISPR gene modification. It is considered one of the biggest science stories of recent history. Scientists have used the technology in mice to treat deafness and sickle-cell anemia. There are upcoming applications in agriculture, the possibility of creating powerful new antibiotics, turning garbage into fuel, perhaps the elimination of malaria-spreading mosquitoes and even reducing carbon dioxide to reduce climate change. I found it interesting how CRISPR works. In the simplest terms, bacteria create enzymes to fight off viruses. They also snip out pieces of the virus’s genetic code and store them in a sort of reference library so that they can be more ready to attack if they encounter that virus again. It is this snipping ability that is harnessed to modify genes for the purposes I mentioned. (And, this hints at how smart our probiotic bacteria are.) Of course, the technology is only good or bad depending on who uses it. We will have to be on guard to make sure that sensible ethics are employed and great caution is used to protect from accidentally inserting unwanted genes. Read How CRISPR Gene Editing Will Help Conserve Our Environment.

LAST WEEK Follow-up

LISTEN to that show in the archives.

Gus Kotsanis, MD was in the studio to discuss something quite fascinating: using blood serum from young donors to revitalize aging patients. We also talked about other revitalizing steps. Then one of our regulars, Anthony Thomas, PhD gave us guidance about getting better sleep. Dr. Thomas is the Director, Scientific Affairs for Jarrow Formulas. Among other things we talked about some of the ingredients in their Sleep Optimizer.
