Talking about the plague and heavy metals may seem like a kind of odd subject to talk about but bear with me, it will be worth it. Just this past weekend I was a speaker at the Weston A. Price Foundation’s (WAPF) annual international conference where I heard a talk from the controversial doctor, Andrew Wakefield. He was the guest of honor and he made a very impassioned speech but there was one comment he [...]

Tonight I watched a segment on 60 minutes that got me really pissed off. It was about our brave soldiers who have suffered concussions due to explosions in Iraq and Afghanistan and how it has damaged their brains. They went on about how great it was that someone had funded an institute to help test the men and women but in the end, there are no treatments for all the damage that was done. Bulls**t!!! There is [...]

Urine organic acid testing is essential for developing the best possible body composition, increasing fat loss and achieving optimal health. The test is considered a functional test as it reflects the nutritional needs of the body instead of just measuring levels of nutrients and co-factors. This allows it to take genetic, environmental and stress factors into account. In my book, Achieving Victory Over a Toxic World, I dedicated a chapter to the issue of weight loss [...]

Today’s blog is the first in a five part series to uncover what I believe are the best tests to help increase fat loss, improve muscle production and achieve optimal health faster. I’m sure there will be disagreements and differing opinions, but I come at this from experience. Over the past 27 years, I’ve seen over 60,000 lab tests and feel that these tests really make a difference. Today’s blog is an overview of what I [...]
