Some of you know that I do thermography scans in addition to advanced laboratory testing in my practice. A thermography - also known as infrared scan - is able to detect disease before they manifest. Thermography is much more accurate than i.e. mammography and ultrasound, simply because it is able to see the onset of tissue changes before a solid tumor can be seen with mammography. When we already have solid tumors, there have been often 5-10 years of tissues changes going on. It is a much more difficult path to treat disease in the late stages than in the early stages. We can prevent disease if we detect the first imbalances early.Read More
One of my biggest pet-peeves is genetically modified crops. Not only is it incredibly bad for our health as is proven in independent studies time and time again, but it has far more dangerous consequences for us at a global as well as individual level.Read More
Your frantic personality has got to go.
Those doughnuts, though, can stay. Yup hand 'em over.
A new study confirms what many of us already know: that our emotional health overrides whatever we put in our mouth. Stress activates a cascade of toxic biochemical processes in our body, some leading to heart disease, others diabetes and often resulting in weight gain especially around the stomach. Yup, that's right. A telltale sign of stress and not handling it too well is, if we gain weight around our midsection.Read More
Fats fuel your mitochondria

One of the most typical things I see on the lab testing I do is mitochondrial dysfunction. Now if your last biology class was decades ago, this might seem a bit iffy to you. So here is the deal on our mitochondria in short: our mitochondria power the biochemical reactions in our cells.When our mitochondria are not functioning at their peak, we feel tired, lethargic and age quicker.Read More
I love whey, and especially because it is a broad-spectrum superfood - meaning there is not an ailment that it doesn't cater for. The only exception being for hypersensitive biochemistry types, which will not be able to tolerate the dairy protein present. The majority of those of us dealing just with simple dairy sensitivity do well with whey. And it's delicious as a banana, coconut and whey smoothie.Read More
Biofilms are a sticky cover made by bacteria - often encapsulating bad bacteria leading to chronic health conditions and fatigue. The National Institutes of Health estimates that more than 80% of microbial infections in the human body are caused by biofilm, many of them creating chronic conditions.Read More

Green smoothies are great for using up those spare parts of vegetables that you just don’t know what to do with. Blending them makes their rough texture smooth as silk and adding some fruit and some fat like coconut cream or almond butter masks any bitter flavor. And did you know bitter greens help to produce bile flow aka digestive and liver health?Read More
