Never able to find the source of the supposed infection, doctors and researchers were baffled until now. It turns out that when there is such an injury, the mitochondria, which are the energy powerhouses of […]

5-Day Energy Rebalancing Diet

Most people (except those with liver and kidney disease) do not get enough protein (fish, meat, eggs) for breakfast and lunch. Try increasing your protein at breakfast and lunch for five days and see if you don’t notice a difference in your energy, reduced cravings at night, improved mood, and less of an afternoon slump […]

A Modern Myth: Medicine as Science
