COVID-19 Naturopathic Strategies

Image by Tumisu from Pixabay  I wrote here on COVID-19 a few weeks ago, comparing it to SARS and MERS, and discussing immune support protection in general.

The Best 2019-nCoV Coronavirus Defense

Image by _freakwave_ from Pixabay Everybody is talking about the novel coronavirus outbreak, feared to be the next world pandemic. Symptoms range from a mild upper respiratory infection to death (though fatality is fortunately uncommon), and testing is cumbersome: while local hospitals are now developing their own tests, samples could previously only be [...]

Blueberry Extract for Cholesterol

Statins hold two positions in the top 10 most commonly prescribed drugs in America (and one of them is #2). Nevertheless, evidence shows that statins do little to decrease all-cause mortality, and carry significant risks. That said, there certainly is a correlation with cardiovascular events and 1) LDL over 190, 2) [...]

Quinolone Toxicity

Fluoroquinolones are a very effective class of antibiotics including levofloxacin (Levaquin), ciprofloxacin (Cipro), moxifloxacin (Avelox), ofloxacin, gemifloxacin (Factive), and delafloxacin (Baxdela). They work well for otherwise antibiotic-resistant organisms, and many doctors prescribe them as a first line treatment for infection, just assuming that the responsible organisms might be resistant to [...]

Hormonal Causes of Low Libido

Low libido is a common complaint, and there are certainly a variety of possible causes—including fatigue, stress (though there may be a hormonal aspect to this, too—see below), pain or other chronic illness, relationship issues, body image issues, inhibitions, and past trauma.

Pyroluria (or Pyrrole Disorder, or the Mauve Factor)

When the body breaks down hemoglobin in red blood cells, it creates byproducts—kryptopyrroles (KPU), and hydroxyhemopyrrolin-2-one (HPL). Most people excrete these in the urine without a problem—but in some cases, they accumulate. This is a problem, because pyrroles and HPL bind to Vitamin B6, and to zinc, causing deficiencies. The [...]

Sucrose Intolerance

Gas, bloating, alternating constipation and diarrhea are often grouped under the general diagnosis of “IBS” (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). But IBS is a diagnosis that merely describes symptoms—it doesn’t identify the cause.
