Brains on fire

March 27th 2018, 12:06

Much of modern psychiatry rests on the assumption that mental illness is a biological or genetic disease. Nowhere is this more evident than with serious conditions like depression, bipolar disorder or even schizophrenia—all catch-all terms used to describe individuals who supposedly have lost contact with reality and suffer from delusions, hallucinations, illogical thought processes, or generally disturbed and even suicidal thoughts or behavior.


In some cases, medicine may be correct in blaming body chemistry, but by seeking the cause in some sort of faulty wiring in the brain itself, it could be fingering the wrong culprit. For years, studies have suggested that some of the behavior that we label depression, schizophrenia or bipolar disorder may in fact be caused by nutritional deficiencies and allergies.

Germ warfare

Blaming health conditions on bugs like bacteria or viruses has fallen out of fashion. We look for lifestyle causes of illness, whether diet or too few important nutrients, lack of exercise, too much processed, sugary foods or even the fallout from drugs and other aspects of modern medicine. We figure that in almost every instance, we're ill because of something we're not doing right.

The healing power of a group

September 26th 2017, 11:15

For many years, I refused to write about the strange healings that were happening in my workshops because I didn't believe them for one moment, which is to say, I had a hard time handling miracles.

By 'miracles' and 'healings,' I'm referring to genuine loaves-and-fishes-type miraculous events—a series of extraordinary and untoward situations in which people were instantly healed of all sorts of physical conditions after being assembled into a small group and sent a collective healing thought. I am talking about the kinds of miracles that defy every last belief we hold about the way we are told the world is supposed to work.

Reversing the irreversible

Treatment of type 1 diabetes is touted as a great medical success story—a condition considered long-since conquered, ever since Sir Frederick Banting and his colleagues at the University of Toronto ground up the pancreas of a cow and injected it into a 14-year-old diabetic boy in 1921.

Ask most doctors why people develop eye diseases like glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration, and they'll blame it on the fact that eyes just inevitably wear out. Two of those conditions—macular degeneration and cataracts—even have 'age' attached to a particular version of them, as in 'age-related cataracts' and 'age-related macular degeneration' (AMD).

Mental starvation

June 26th 2017, 21:55

Entire industries in modern medicine—psychiatry, the drug industry, even many therapeutic arms of psychology—are predicated on the idea that chronic, crippling stress, anxiety and a number of other forms of so-called mental illness are incredibly tough nuts to crack, requiring years of strong medication that, at best, can only control symptoms.

A mental adjustment

May 24th 2017, 13:34

Despite being the world's most popular form of alternative treatment, chiropractic has lately had a bad press, particularly in the UK. It began when Simon Singh, the self-appointed attack dog on all things alternative, decided to promote his book Trick or Treatment: Alternative Medicine on Trial by writing an article in The Guardian in 2008 specifically targeting chiropractors and their various claims.

A cleaner sweep

This magazine owes its start to dental fillings—my dental fillings. I'd had bad teeth as a kid—the product of the average heavily processed, high-sugar, American diet—and by the time I was a teenager, there weren't many of my teeth, other than the few at the front, that weren't covered in metal.

Weak at the knees

February 23rd 2017, 18:10
1,419 views      

At any moment, up to a third of us are struggling with pain in our knees. In a major US National Health Interview Survey in 2006, nearly a third of adults reported experiencing some type of joint pain, with more than a sixth reporting pain in the knee. The situation is even worse in the UK, where major surveys in Bristol and Nottingham both estimated that up to a quarter of all adults suffer with chronic knee pain, while a Greater Manchester survey brought that figure up to nearly one-third of all men and women over the age of 45.

Not so little grey cells

October 27th 2016, 14:27

Tell your doctor that you have to search harder to recall the names of distant friends or remember where you last placed your keys, and he’s likely chalk it up to ‘mild cognitive decline’ and tell you to get used to the inevitable slippery slope of ageing.

But as this month’s cover story (page 28) demonstrates, he’d be resoundingly wrong. The latest brain evidence demonstrates the astonishing likelihood that the brain is far more malleable than originally thought, with the capacity to grow new brain cells and make new neural connections throughout your life, even in your twilight years.

The audacity of hope

October 14th 2016, 13:49

For us, the story began in 1995 when Bryan’s 78-year-old mother, Edie, was diagnosed with end-stage breast cancer. Privately her doctor told us, “If I were you, I’d get her affairs in order.” When he’d examined her, he’d been shocked: her breast, he told me, looked like raw meat. In fact, so advanced was the cancer that it was too late to try chemotherapy or any other intervention. She had three months to live, at the very outside, we were told.

Because of our work, we’d heard of Dr Patrick Kingsley, a medical pioneer in Leicestershire. We didn’t know how successful he’d be with a case of terminal cancer, but we were encouraged to hear that he had a local cancer group consisting of many others who apparently were beating
the odds.

An immovable feast

June 30th 2016, 16:53

We’ve not only been built to move; like a dog needing to be walked every day, our bodies need to move in order to function properly.

Somewhere during the 20th century, though, we forgot about this essential purpose and designed lifestyles in which hours of movement punctuated by short bouts of stillness have been replaced by hours of stillness—at a desk, in our daily commute, during evenings in front of the TV—punctuated by a few furious rounds of movement.

The quantum cook

Last month, WDDTY was saddened to learn of the passing of Dr Annemarie Colbin, one of its panel members, a visionary in the natural-food movement and a dear friend. In 1977, in need of income to support her young daughters, Dr Colbin started the Natural Gourmet Cookery School in the kitchen of her Upper West Side apartment. As the school likes to advertise, she was teaching kale and quinoa before the general public had ever heard of it.

Nearly 40 years later, the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts, as it's now known and which long ago moved to its own premises in Manhattan, became one of the top schools in America for natural cookery, and the first and only natural-foods cooking school accredited by the New York State education department to offer a chef's training programme in the subject, graduating to date more than 2,500 natural gourmet chefs from 45 nations.
