Anti-Nutrients: Problems with Eating Too Much Spinach or Almonds - Dr Mercola

If you’re eating a healthy diet and you’re still dealing with fatigue, inflammation, anxiety, recurrent injuries, or chronic pain, the problem could be your spinach, almonds, sweet potatoes, and other trusted plant foods. And your key to vibrant health may be quitting these so-called superfoods!? In this interview, Sally Norton, author of “ Toxic Superfoods: How Oxalate Overload Is Making You Sick — and How to Get Better ,” reviews how and why even foods we’ve been told are healthy can wreak havoc on your health. As the title of the book implies, the main culprit in question is oxalate or oxalic acid, found in many plants, beans, grains, seeds and nuts, fruits, berries and herbs. ( R ) So, just what are oxalates, why are they so bad, and how are they hidden in these superfoods that so many people are consuming? In short, it’s a naturally-occurring toxic, corrosive acid.

Vitamin C in Cancer Treatment: What You Need to Know 2023

In this interview, Dr. Nathan Goodyear discusses the benefits of vitamin C in cancer treatment. We are both scheduled speakers at the Vitamin C International Consortium Institute’s annual conference in Tampa, Florida, September 9 and 10, 2022 . Goodyear started out as a gynecologist and pelvic floor surgeon. Once out of residency, however, he noticed that a lot of what he’d been taught in medical school didn’t work. Then, in 2006, he developed pheochromocytoma, a rare type of tumor that develops in the adrenal gland, causing it to excrete high amounts of norepinephrine, which in turn causes extremely high blood pressure and heart rate.   Holistic Oncology  That experience pushed him to make the transition into the field of cancer.

Cure Your Fatigue: How Balancing Copper, Iron, Magnesium and 1 Protein is the Solution that You're Looking For

Morley Robbins, MBA, CHC,   a repeat guest, is the founder of the Magnesium Advocacy Group. He’s best known as the Magnesium Man, and is the author of “ Cu-RE Your Fatigue: The Root Cause and How to Fix It on Your Own ,” in which he explains the roles of magnesium, copper, iron, vitamins A and D and other essential nutrients.

As explained by Robbins, if copper is lacking in your diet, iron will build up in your liver, which changes its physiology and immuno-properties.

Your diet plays a prominent role in your heart health, but the role of individual micronutrients continues to be debated. Brown University researchers conducted a study to determine which micronutrients are best for your heart. They unveiled an up-to-date evidence-based map that quantifies the impact of micronutrients on cardiovascular outcomes. Out of 27 micronutrients, three — omega-3 fats, folate and coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) — came out on top. Micronutrients Benefit Cardiometabolic Health Micronutrients are vitamins and minerals that your body needs to function optimally. Deficiencies in micronutrients can lead to a range of acute and chronic conditions.
