What Your Adrenal Glands DoPDFPrintE-mail
Written by Dr Marcus Laux

You have two adrenal glands, each about the size and weight of a large grape. They sit on top of your kidneys and dispatch the hormones you need to be fully functional. When they work well, you work well. If they start to falter—increas­ingly common at midlife—your symptoms can range from vague to debilitating. Without the hormones produced by these little glands, you’ll die. Even so, diagnos­ing adrenal fatigue isn’t even on most physicians’ radar. And without proper treat­ment, adrenal fatigue steadily gets worse.

A Guilty Pleasure Without The GuiltPDFPrintE-mail
Written by Kristen Schiener

Although taste preferences do vary from person to person, a common Achilles heel amongst health seekers and waist watchers alike is a powerful sweet tooth.  You would not be alone if the dessert menu is your undoing, or treats commonly find their way into your mid-afternoon snack.

The Bitter Truth For DigestionPDFPrintE-mail
Written by Dr Marcus Laux

The process of digestion is so central to life that images of it are found throughout our society. Whether we’re discussing artistic creation, information analysis, or corporate acquisitions, we can always use digestion as an analogy because it involves taking something that is not us—preferably whole, organic foods—and transforming it into something that is us, or the energy we need to continue being us.

The Other Magic Mushrooms - Cancer Therapy That WorksPDFPrintE-mail
Written by Dr Marcus Laux

Cancer is everywhere. It’s in all of us, all the time. Cancer becomes a problem only when it out­performs and then overwhelms your body’s natural defence mechanisms. If I could choose only one kind of therapy to protect myself against cancer, even if I’d already been diagnosed with it, my choice wouldn’t be chemotherapy or radiation. Instead, I’d pick medicinal mushrooms. And if hundreds of millions of cancer cells had already spread through­out my body (which would be tough for even the healthiest immune system to deal with), I might use chemo or radiation to cut down on my cancer load, but I’d use medicinal mushrooms to treat the cancer and help me heal faster from the chemo. To understand why I would choose this course, it helps to understand how your body normally defends itself against cancer, and what medicinal mushrooms can do.

Pass On The Flu ShotPDFPrintE-mail
Written by Dr Marcus Laux

We’re into autumn again, which means that it’s time for the annual flu scare. One year, the scare was about a mutant virus that wasn’t included in the prepared vaccine; another year it’s a “shortage” of the vaccine itself. The news has people lined up outside pharmacies and public health centers, waiting for hours to get the magic injection that will save their lives. Why is the public being scared into believing an epidemic is imminent, year after year, and being urged to get a so-called antidote for something that has not been scientifically proven to be effective? Yes, you probably guessed it. The flu vaccine is big money for pharmaceutical companies. Glaxo, manufacturer of the swine flu vaccine, saw profits soar into the billions in 2009 (1) and Novartis, makers of “flu shots” saw profits rise by 49% in the first quarter of 2010. (2) Sales have grown along with the escalation in warnings each season by the media about impending flu epidemics absent a flu shot.

Healthy Tidbits

In this century, the world will have more people living into their 80s and 90s than ever before, with the number of people 80+ set to quadruple between 2000 and 2050.


Increased life expectancy is largely due to improvements in public health, and healthy ageing is linked directly to health in earlier stages of life.


Although it is natural for biological processes to decline with age, the rate at which our body’s decline is impacted by many controllable lifestyle factors such as how we eat, how we move, and how many toxic substances we are exposed to.
