WSJ – FDA Clears ‘Pacemaker for the Stomach’

Federal regulators on Wednesday approved a novel dieting device that acts like a pacemaker for the stomach by manipulating the nerve pathway that makes people feel hungry or full.

Dr. Glidden Responds

Well, you know what they say – “You can’t fix stupid!” – especially when it comes to the FDA. In the latest go-round from the idiots in the white coats we have the brandy spankin’ new Stomach Pacemaker! It’s an electrical device a little bit bigger than a pocket watch that is implanted surgically into the abdomen. It sends electrical signals to the Vagus nerve in an attempt to disrupt people’s feelings of hunger. This is the boldest move to date since the roll-out of the fabled Gastric Bypass surgical technique in yet another misguided attempt to manage obesity. Please note that I said “manage” and not “cure” – that was on purpose.

Is obesity a big problem (pun intended)? Yes!

Have the MDs completely dropped the “cure” ball regarding this terrible illness? Yes!

Not only have they dropped the ball, they have fallen down so miserably here, that whilst they have monopolized the medical marketplace, crying in the town square that all other doctors besides themselves are quacks with backward training and dangerous treatments, obesity has skyrocketed.

It has increased 30% in the childhood population in the last 30 years. 1/3 of adults are obese, and there is no end in sight. Instead of calling a spade a spade and holding the MDs responsible for this complete and utter failure, we stand amazed by their technological advancements which in this case offer only a false hope at a very high price tag: 30-40K per unit!

Once again the reductionistic medical philosophy espoused by the MDs has created another therapeutic marvel which completely misses the mark and nobody but me calls Bulls#$&.

An open minded medical scientist would ask the question: “What causes people to eat so much?” The close minded MD answers – “Nobody knows – it must be the nerves, or the genes, or the tigers – Oh My!” Because they actually believe that obesity is just a fact of life – it is baked into the cake, and it is impossible for anyone to cure it, all of their treatments are designed to manage the symptoms of the disease. Gastric bypass surgery cuts out the stomach. Lap-band surgery wraps a belt around the stomach and squeezes it. Amphetamines up-regulate the metabolism putting the patient into a constant “Fight or Flight” mode. All in the desperate attempt to cut down the appetite.

Nobody even stops to consider that the increased appetite is, in and of itself, a symptom of a greater problem – a problem which the MDs, by virtue of their close-minded genuflection at the altar of an Outdated, Machiavellian, Monopolistic, Allopathic, Reductionistic Medical Methodology – are completely incapable of understanding because they can’t see it. Their quack medicine philosophy disallows them from understanding how the body really works. They are like color blind artists who don’t know that they are color blind and who can’t figure out why their art always sucks…

More’s the pity – because it is the patient who suffers from their shortsightedness and the economy reels from their hubris.

Wisdom Of The Body

Wholistic (aka Holistic) physicians (Naturopaths, Chiropractors, Ayurveds, etc.) argue that it is the wisdom of the body that makes the body crave calories. That’s right! I said it out loud! The body has wisdom. The body is a self-regulating wondrously sophisticated living organism. It knows how to take care of business, but the mind often gets in the way. The human body needs vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fatty acids to function properly, but it can itself make none of these. All of the essential nutrients that the human body needs to take care of business must be imported into the body each day. This is why we eat and drink – to secure calories to burn for energy and essential nutrients to maintain health. But the stuff that we eat and drink is rich in calories, but devoid of the essential nutrients so necessary for optimal health. The body knows that this is happening. The body knows that it is low in Calcium, Selenium, Vitamin A, Vitamin D and Omega 3 fats, etc. The body also knows that if it continues to be low in these essential nutrients then something is going to break. It is only a matter of time. So what does the body do? It increases the appetite in the desperate attempt to fill up the essential nutrient tank. So the poor patient goes to Olive Garden, wolfs down 2000 calories, goes home and 2 hours later is hungry again! Why? Because the food that they just ate was devoid of essential nutrients. Period.

If you are overweight it is not your fault. You are not depressed, you are not lazy, you do not need to exercise more, and you do not have a bad gene. You have a bad doctor. Period.

Want to know how to fill up your tank? Want to know how to cut your cravings off at the knees? Want to know how real doctors practicing real medicine support and promote the optimal functioning of the human body?

How To Beat The Post-Holiday Blues

Are you feeling funky?

Tired Teenager In Santa Hat

Did Santa not deliver – or deliver too much? Holiday cookies got you cooked? Did your relatives leave you with relativistic angst? Learn how to beat the post-holiday blues… read on!

Well, you are not alone. Many people feel less than optimal all year long and then the holidays make it worse – like lemon juice rubbed into a paper cut. I can’t change the past nor give you different relatives, but to help you to feel better I won’t have to. Interestingly, most of the funkiness that shows up post-holidays is rooted in physiology, not psychology, and there are 3 simple things that you can do right now to lift yourself out of the post-holiday doldrums.
Here is my list (I’ve checked it more than twice) of action steps you can take to bounce back from the Holiday Blues.

Optimize Your Sugar Metabolism

Remember – sugar is NOT the anti-Christ. Sugar is the gasoline of your body. Your genetic material is made out of sugar. You couldn’t blink an eyelid without sugar. The problem with sugar is its quantity in your diet and whether or not your body has the raw materials necessary to use it efficiently. In order to use sugar efficiently, your body needs 90 essential nutrients (ENs): (60 minerals, 16 vitamins, 12 amino acids, 2 fatty acids).* The trouble here is that not all 90 ENs are present in the food that you eat. YOU MUST supplement your diet with all 90 ENs just to give it a fighting chance to work properly. If you do not do this then it is only a matter of time until your blood sugar starts to go haywire.

When the sugar-metabolizing nutrients in your body are low and your sugar intake is high (or even normal) then you start to get symptoms of funky sugar metabolism. Feeling unmotivated, sluggish, depressed and blue are all related to less than optimal blood sugar levels. Difficulty staying asleep at night, falling asleep after a meal, and general run of the mill low grade fatigue are all related to blood sugar difficulties.

When you combine this physiological funkiness with stupid relatives, high credit card bills and too many Christmas cookies then you are a train wreck waiting to happen.

To give your body a fighting chance, you need to secure all 90 Essential Nutrients necessary for healthy blood sugar metabolism and a little extra of the trace minerals vanadium and chromium.

Lymphatic Breathing

Do Lymphatic Breathing for 10 minutes twice daily, preferably in the open air. Lymphatic Breathing is easy: Take a slow and deep breath in through the nostrils, making your chest rise at the top of the inhalation, and then slowly exhale through your mouth. Do 5 minutes of this while sitting or standing still until you get the hang of it, then do the breathing technique while walking, bouncing up and down on a little trampoline, or rocking back and forth from your heels to the balls of your feet. If you get light-headed, stop and rest, then start again. Soon you will get the hang of it. The trick is to not breathe too quickly (slow and steady does it) and to expand your chest at the top of the inhalation.

Not only does this technique bring in lots of oxygen and prana to your body, but it also helps your lymphatic fluid to flow – resulting in healthier blood. Given the choice which would you rather have, healthy or unhealthy blood?

Cut Out Foods High In Sugar!

Stop eating food that is high in sugar. Once your body is properly nutrified (with the 90 ENs) then your sugar cravings will disappear – or be much more manageable. Strong and persistent sugar cravings are a drop-dead diagnostic indication that your body is deficient in minerals. So when you start to supplement your diet with the 90 ENs (60 of which are minerals), then your sweet-tooth becomes a thing of the past. Another trick here is to eat a protein source when you are craving sweets. So while you are waiting for the supplement program to kick in the next time you get a sugar craving, have a handful of mixed salted nuts instead.

post-holiday blues, dr. glidden, dr. wallach

*To secure the 90 Essential Nutrients look for supplements that have the following:

•Multi-Vitamin complex.

•Amino Acids Complex containing the following @125 mg per 100 lbs per day: alanine, arginine, cystine, glutamic acid, glycine, histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, proline, serine, threonine, tyrosine, valine.

•Plant-Derived Trace Minerals in a saturated liquid solution.

•Omega 3 EFA: 300 mg per 100 lbs per day

•Omega 6 EFA: 100 mg per 100 lbs per day

•EPA: 150 mg per 100 lbs per day

•DHA: 100 mg per 100 lbs per day

•Vanadium: 800 micrograms (mcg)  per 100 lbs per day

•Chromium: 400 micrograms (mcg)  per 100 lbs per day

•Selenium: 200 micrograms (mcg) per 100 lbs per day

Surgery of Tonsils, Adenoids and Ear Tubes

The Unnecessary Surgery Your Kid’s Doctor Is Profiting From

Are You Asking The Right Person?

You would not go to a communist dictator to get advice on voter’s rights. You would not go to a Christian for advice about reincarnation and you would not go to an atheist for advice on how to pray. Nor should you go to an MD for advice on how to support the immune system or how to deal with chronic health conditions – like ear aches, tonsillitis and sore throats.

Philosophy

#tonsillectomy dr glidden, child tonsillectomy surgeryThe medical philosophy that your MD is trained in is an old fashioned, outdated short sighted profit driven model which argues that the human body is an evolutionary coincidence of biochemicals which has no soul and no inherent ability for self-repair. To the MD, a cure is not possible, nor is it the goal. The goal of the MD is to surgically remove troublesome tissue and/or to orchestrate a hostile takeover of the biochemistry of the body with man-made, for-profit synthetic drugs the intention of which are to suppress the symptoms that the person is troubled by.

Symptom suppression by drugs and surgical interventions do not get to the root cause of the disease. The fluid build-up behind the ear drum is not the disease. It is the result of the disease. Punching a hole into the ear drum and inserting a tube to drain the fluid does not cure the cause of the fluid buildup in the first place. The inflamed tonsils and adenoids are not the disease. They are the results of the disease.

Painting Over The Mold

But the MD, not being concerned with curing anything, does not care about these distinctions – and is using your child’s body to make money. Children don’t get swollen tonsils, adenoids and ear-drums because they have tonsils, adenoids or ears. Simply removing these anatomical structures with surgery does nothing what-so-ever to deal with the causes of the problems. This procedure is tantamount to painting over the mold in the basement rather than fixing the leak that caused it in the first place.

Trifecta

Stupid is as stupid does .The latest trend in the Machiavellian, monopolistic, mediocre methodology of the MD medical school of thought is a trifecta of treatments for your ailing child. “That’s right ladies and gentlemen; step right up -for a limited time only, you can enjoy our three-for-one disease management special. You don’t want your child to suffer needlessly do you? Your child will undergo general anesthesia and while unconscious the magnificent MD will not only insert tubes into the ear drums to help drain the fluid build-up there, but will also (for a built in small additional charge) surgically remove both tonsils and both adenoids in a titillating trifecta of treatment terrificness…”

Who Do You Trust?

You must stop putting your trust in the knowledge base of the MDs. You must stop thinking that they know what’s best for you. They do not. Your MD may be the nicest person God ever created but they do not know what’s best for you. They only know what they have been trained in, and what they have been trained in is just one small piece of the pie of medical science – but it has been sold to you by the AMA and Big Pharma as your ONLY safe and scientific medical option. Don’t believe the pharmaceutical spin.

A much better approach to dealing with chronic sore throats, ear infections, swollen tonsils and adenoids which afflict our children is to support and promote the proper function of their immune systems, which by the way is much easier to accomplish than you think. Here are the simple steps necessary to rescue your child from the dangerous and ineffective strategies shoved in their faces by the out of touch MDs.

The Solution

To Support and Promote Healthy Immune Systems In Children Who Are Afflicted With Ear and/or Throat Infections, The Recommendation Is:

1. During an earache or sore throat eliminate ALL sources of dairy (anything made from cow’s milk).

2. For earaches, put a dropper full of colloidal silver into each ear every 2 hours all day long until the child is completely better; and give 2 pellets of homeopathic “Pulsatills nigrans 200c” twice daily for two days only. Lastly, give 1 capsule of Killer Biotic per 50 pounds of body weight per day.

3. For sore throats, swollen tonsils and or swollen adenoids gargle with 1 teaspoon of colloidal silver in 1 ounce of water every 2 hours while awake; and give 2 pellets of homeopathic “Mercurius vivus 200c” twice daily for 2 days only. Lastly, give 1 capsule of Killer Biotic per 50 pounds of body weight per day.

4. For every child, regardless of the illness, per 50 pounds per day do the following:
a. 1 level scoop of Beyond Tangy Tangerine mixed with 1 tablespoon of Cheri-Mins in 20 oz of water.
b. 1 Tablespoon of Beyond Osteo Fx in 1 oz of OJ immediately before bed.
c. 1 capsule of EFA twice daily with food

5. We also recommend that everybody, without exception (yes, this includes you) completely eliminates all of the following foods for the rest of your life:
a. Wheat
b. Barley
c. Rye
d. Oats
e. Fried Food
f. Oil in bottle
g. Well done red meat
h. Meat with nitrates added
i. Skins of baked potatoes/yams/sweet potatoes
j. Carbonated drinks with a meal

This program should produce remarkable results in the health of your child in 72 hours.
