My Journey out of a Grim Diagnosis
I am a male 65 year old healthcare professional who was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer, in December 2021 and had a tumor removed from my transverse colon on December 30, 2021.

Evidence Based Medicine Takes a New Turn
Distinguished members, our decades of disparaging nutritional therapy have paid off at last. The public, and their healthcare providers, are completely hoodwinked. By pushing “evidence based medicine” on the medical professions, we have elegantly slipped in our choice of evidence to base medicine on. And this is no mere journeyman accomplishment: this is high art. Mr. Machiavelli would be pleased. Certainly the pharmaceutical cartel is. We are well on our way to eliminating the competition, namely that increasingly irritating “orthomolecular medicine” faction. Read more.

ANH delves into another popular anti-aging technique. Whether searching for healing waters or buying sketchy “anti-aging” potions, the drive to turn back our biological clocks is as old as time itself. The diabetes drug metformin has been getting a lot of attention, even among non-diabetics, for its potential to help reverse aging. Does metformin really help us turn back the clock? Are there better alternatives? Read more.
Bone Health and Osteoporosis: An Orthomolecular Perspective
Osteoporosis, like most other disease, is caused by many factors including deficiencies of essential nutrients such as vitamin D. But the central dogma has been promoting just prescription drugs and calcium supplements. This strategy sounds simple and straightforward, but unfortunately not only does it not work, it may even be harmful. There is a rich body of data in the literature showing that lifestyle, nutrition, toxins, and hormonal balance have an impact on bone health and osteoporosis. Read more.
Anti-Aging Supplement Update
The anti-aging guru and founder of the company trying to take away your NMN supplements finally spoke out over the controversy. Action Alert! At the end of last year, we told you about the FDA’s determination that NMN, an important, naturally occurring anti-aging molecule, is not a legal supplement. Why? Because, in the FDA’s view, a drug company (MetroBiotech) started investigating NMN as a drug before it was sold as a supplement. David Sinclair, PhD, who co-founded MetroBiotech and who is an outspoken proponent of NMN’s role in anti-aging, released a statement on the FDA’s action against NMN supplements. Read more.
Paxlovid, Advertised for Mass Use, has Contrandications with Hundreds of Drugs
