Congratulations Ohio!

Yesterday I was happy to meet two Swedish doctors working with functional medicine. I’m often referring to Dr. Mark Hyman, one of the most well known functional medicine doctors in the U.S., in my posts.

mark hyman

Well, Bill and Hillary Clinton have visited Dr. Hyman for advice and now Dr. Hyman is more popular than ever because he is the director of the Center for Functional Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. Functional medicine is the healthcare of the 21st-century. In this video Dr. Hyman is explaining what functional medicine is and telling us his own unique story.

If you live far away from Ohio you can always try to find a functional medicine practitioner closer to you.

Bread Head

I’m looking forward to this documentary about Alzheimer’s called Bread Head. I am especially eager to hear more from the neuropathologist who coined the term “Alzheimer’s – type 3 diabetes; the diabetes of the brain.”

First Wheat Belly, then Grain Brain, and now Bread Head. I wonder what’s next?

WHERE DIETARY-FAT GUIDELINES WENT WRONG

This is a brand new article and video from The Times about where dietary-fat guidelines went wrong. Yes, I know I have written about it many times before but perhaps some of you need a reminder or still have fat-frightened friends that need to hear this message.

So simple; eat “Real Food” with healthy fats.
