Is it really possible to get help for bunions without surgery?

Most bunions can be helped if you commit to the process. For bunion relief, know the causes of bunions and make a long-term plan for change. This is the goal of the work in my San Antonio natural health clinic and in my Primal Diet – Modern Health podcasts. Fix the cause as well as the symptom!

I'm often asked about the differences between fish oil and cod liver oil. Which is best? Both have anti-inflammatory EPA-DHA, but there's more to know before buying.

Eating oily fish such as wild salmon and sardines twice a week is important but it makes sense to supplement a small amount of Omega 3's as well.

So, Fish Oil or Cod Liver Oil? One thing is true for both. Quality counts! The brand, the processing method and the type of fish all matter.

COVID Loss of Taste and Smell

Loss of smell and taste can be strong early warnings of infection, perhaps more important than fever or low oxygen. If your taste and smell suddenly disappear, get tested immediately and isolate.

Studies such as this one from the European Journal of Neurology confirm these are Covid symptoms.

Many patients report recovery of smell and taste quickly with “light” cases of Covid. Others report slower recovery. Can Zinc help recovery from the illness as well as these symptoms?

Managing Herpes without prescription medications is what I do for my own health and with Clients. The right combination of herbs, amino acids, diet and stress management can work in both acute and recurring infections.

The Herpes family is a large one and includes HSV1, HSV2, Shingles, Epstein Barr and ChickenPox (among others). Having struggled with all of these except HSV1 I have learned how to manage them without medications.

One of the diet rules we all “know” is that salt is bad for us.  So why is real salt so important?  Can it be a key to health recovery?

Salt was one of the earliest trade items and helped establish trade routes and villages all over the world.  It was often used as money.

Salt was traditionally used to preserve food.  It’s value was in allowing meats and vegetables to be salted and stored for later consumption, a huge advantage over having to hunt and gather fresh food all the time. Neanderthals mined salt, as well as ancient Chinese.

For most people, no. It's common to have EBV Antibodies. EBV is Mono, an infectious Virus many of us got when younger. For some people, it is now "Reactivated Epstein Barr" where the virus may have become a top priority, or is one of several concurrent immune challenges.

The questions are: how high are your antibodies and is the virus causing your health issues or just another symptom of being run down?

It’s time to be an entrepreneur in our new economy. Things won’t be “normal” for a long time but there are many ways to earn spending money and maybe create bigger things for the future.

I’ve been an entrepreneur since I was young, creating multiple businesses, large and small. I imported and sold leather clothing from Spain in the 70’s, owned the largest dinnerware and cookware store in the Southeast in the 70’s and 80’s, and opened a chain of retail alterations and monogram stores that became a franchise in the mid-80’s.

In 1989 I became a Clinical Nutritionist and later opened my San Antonio natural health center, office suites and meeting rooms.

How did I create such diverse businesses?

It was my ability to see a niche and act to fill it

You can do this too.

Ferritin measures the amount of iron stored in the body outside of the red blood cells. Women with no menstrual cycles can accumulate iron in joints, veins, the heart, pancreas and liver. This can cause joint pain, diabetes, hypertension, strokes, hypothyroidism, hair loss, weight gain/weight loss, cardiovascular irregularities and much more.

I'm always looking for natural ways to help anxiety and stress. Both in myself and with clients.

If you're stuck at home waiting for a virus, or another life issue has you struggling and fearful, you're dealing with acute anxiety. But many of us deal with chronic anxiety as well.

I was in my 50's before I finally realized I'd been struggling with anxiety all my life but never recognized it. That shocked me so much I decided to see if others were experiencing unacknowledged anxiety, and if so, offer natural help for reducing anxiety.

Preventative support for virus and flu is different from what to do if you get sick. The better your health the better your recovery. Don't take Echinacea or other immune boosters when you are well. It can cause problems. Save it for when/if you get sick. 

People with chronic respiratory issues, especially older people in less than optimal health or on immune-suppressant drugs seem to be more at risk for Corona. But the virus can take hold of anyone with a weakened immune system.

The adrenal and thyroid connection is often missed by doctors checking only the thyroid. Understanding how these glands affect each other helps you address adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism at the same time.

The goal of all natural health care is to resolve the cause of the problem, not just the symptom. If you’re treating your thyroid lab numbers but not checking adrenal function you may be missing something!

What is Regenerative Grazing? How does soil affect climate, and how do cows and other ruminants have such an important role to play?

In this Primal Diet - Modern Health podcast I speak with Judith Schwartz, author of one of my favorite books, to expand on these topics. "Cows Save the Planet" subtitles include: "Unmaking the deserts, rethinking climate change, bringing back biodiversity, and restoring nutrients to our food".

Whew! That's a lot but Judith makes it readable and clear. Highly recommended for science students and the rest of us who think eating less meat helps the environment.

But factory fed meats and feedlots are indeed part of the problem. The wastes of corn and soy fed cattle are collected in huge lagoons, an anaerobic breeding place for methane gases.

Grass fed ruminants (cattle, bison, sheep, deer, giraffe, camels, antelopes) chew their cud. They have split hooves which, when on pasture, mix waste, rain and saliva into the soil, fertilize it and aerate it.

Here’s 10 simple reasons for chronic fatigue. Get your energy back!

Low energy and fatigue are common complaints in my clinic. The causes can be complex or simple. People often focus on one extreme or the other – either one supplement “should” fix it all, or it must be a serious illness. It will be a combination of things and it’s your job to fix them. Your doctor cannot do these for you!

Self-experimentation and self-observation are key, along with good advice on where to start. Do one thing at a time and watch for changes. If you’re feeling well one day and poorly the next, what did you do differently? Keep track to find your own top causes of fatigue.

Treat Irritable Bowel Syndrome with food, and go for a lasting resolution.  If you have diarrhea, oily stools, gas or gut pain, my version of the Elimination Diet and Low Fodmaps Diet for IBS is worth a try.


IBS at its simplest is just two things: incomplete digestion and improper absorption of food (they're different). Inflammation of the gut and yeast or bacterial overgrowth are part of IBS. They may have started after antibiotics. Or from a lifetime of grains and sugars...

Elimination diets such as Low FODMAPS, GAPS, Paleo and The Specific Carbohydrate Diet all help but I never found any of them to achieve the permanent improvement you need. My diet combines parts from all four. Try it on whatever digestive or bowel issue you have.  (See below for exceptions).

Can eggs cause Gallbladder Problems? Yes! I have seen many client's digestive and Gallbladder symptoms improve after eliminating eggs.

What Does the Gallbladder Do?

The liver makes bile and sends it to the Gallbladder tucked under the liver. It concentrates and stores bile until needed to digest fats in your food.

The Gallbladder is connected to the top of the small intestine (the Duodenum) by a bile duct. As you eat, the gallbladder pumps bile through the duct and into the intestine, emulsifying fats for digestion by the enzyme Lipase. These fats carry the fat-soluble Vitamins A, D, K and E throughout the body. 

Gallbladder/Biliary Dysfunction

There are ducts in the liver bringing bile to the Gallbladder as well as the duct going from the Gallbladder to the Small Intestine. All of this can become inflamed and congested with bacteria, cholesterol, stones, and other waxy substances ("sludge"). This is often overlooked by patients and doctors who don't monitor the biliary system until a gall bladder attack sets off a crisis. It may be too late to save the Gallbladder if the blockage or number of stones is too great. Doctors often remove the Gallbladder even when the blockage is not that bad, and will say you don't really need your Gallbladder and can eat whatever you want once it's gone. 

If possible, take it as a warning, get the facts, and change your diet ASAP. You need that Gallbladder! Removing the Gallbladder may not remove the actual cause of the problem. It may not be the Gallbladder's fault it became congested.

Latin American Paleo Cooking is a terrific new book of authentic Latin foods using Paleo substitutes for flour and sugar. You'll find plantains, cassava flour, potato, coconut flour, tapioca starch and more.

Author Amanda Torres (The Curious Coconut) adapted her Puerto Rican mother-in-law's family recipes to a Paleo-safe diet. Amanda holds a Masters in Neuroscience and used Paleo foods and lifestyle principles to lose 80 pounds and recover from IBS and the auto-immune skin disorder H.S. 

Having found Tara Grant's wonderful book on this disorder ("The Hidden Plague") Amanda was inspired to go Keto, heal her Leaky Gut and get her immune system under control. But she missed those Latin foods! (Listen to my podcast with Tara Grant on healing autoimmune disorders with diet awareness here).

"Latin American Paleo Cooking" has 80 recipes without grains or dairy and most are Autoimmune Paleo adapted. 

Starchy roots, tubers, and fruits make the dough for the many types of fritters, pancakes and turnovers featured here. There are desserts too but go easy on the starches and sugars... They're high in calories and may not digest well if you have issues with starchy carbs.

Try some of these: Garlic Lime Shredded Chicken; Fried Plantain Sandwich on page 72 (pictured here), Queso Blanco on page 170 - white "cheese" made from Amanda's secret ingredients. It melts and stretches like regular Latin Queso! It's used in 9 recipes.

For dessert, try the Coconut Milk Pudding or the "Rice" Pudding made from Yucca.  Chapters include Quick and Easy; Fiesta Foods; Family Dinners; The Essentials, and more. 

Ingredients are available in Latin Grocery stores as well as online. Enjoy!

The correct supplements for adrenal fatigue changed my life more than once. First diagnosed with low cortisol after a heat stroke in 1987, I fell to almost complete adrenal failure in 2001 after severe Epstein Barr Virus.

My goal has always been to repair the adrenals, not just take things for fatigue. I never went on the steroids I was told I'd need. I took rebuilding supplements and made changes in my life.    

Want more energy? REPAIR the Adrenals and Thyroid. Don't overcome "fatigue" with coffee or other stimulants. Here's some very personal tips and supplements for adrenal fatigue repair.  

5 Supplements for Adrenal Fatigue 

  1. Passion Flower calms body and mind to help you sleep, focus, and overcome anxiety. To repair the adrenals you have to fix the "wired" before you fix the "tired".
  2. Licorice makes Cortisol last longer. You want this kind from Amazon, not this one with Glycyrrhizzin removed. That works for reflux and ulcers. Or get Licorice tincture to add to your water during the day (don't take it after 5 PM). 
  3. Adrenal Cortex is different from Adrenal Glandulars. I sell this one in my online store. It's derived only from the inner Adrenal Cortex and no outer Adrenal Medulla like regular glandulars have. The Medulla makes Epinephrine, so regular glandulars can make you speedy. 
  4. Systemic Formulas Ga - Adrenal is the #2 product in my clinic and online store (after D3 Complete with K2). This 40 year old product was designed by a master Herbalist. It worked for me in the 80's and still works today. It's ideal at 3 PM - or take as desired. It's not a stimulant but will lift you gently out of fatigue. It works well with Premier Adaptogen, packaged together here
  5. B Vitamins may help. Try a mix of Phosphorylated B's plus MTHF like this one.

5 Tips for Adrenal Fatigue Repair

  1. Sleep. Nap. Meditate. You cannot fix fatigue until you stop overwork, worry and lack of sleep. Calming yourself is the best way to have more energy. In addition to the Passion Flower above, add some Systemic Formulas N3 - Relaxa day and/or night. Try both before bed, during the night if you're restless, or take in the daytime to stay calm.
  2. Stop Caffeine. Beating up the adrenals will not help them repair!
  3. Keep blood sugar stable. The adrenals play a huge role in blood sugar management. Give them a break with more proteins, fats and vegetables and a lot less starchy carbs or sugar. Eat on a schedule. Here's my DVD on "The Diet For Human Beings". 
  4. Get lab facts! Test both the thyroid and the adrenals to know which (or both) need help. Test - don't guess. This article has tons more about saliva testing. This has some quick tests you can do at home. Here's how to test your thyroid properly, even when your doctor thinks TSH is sufficient.
  5. Acknowledge it's your responsibility to take charge of your life. No one else can make your life calmer and happier. Trust me - I worked myself into the Hospital twice before I learned to "Grow Up"!

Prevent adrenal fatigue, heat stroke, and heat exhaustion with real salt to keep you hydrated. Himalayan or Sun-Dried Solar salts are essential to electrolyte balance. (See my Electrolyte Hydration Drink below). Water alone will not hydrate you. In fact....

Too much plain water can flush away your minerals 

With adrenal fatigue, we tend to excrete salt and be somewhat dehydrated since the cells can't hold water without salt.  If you then become overheated, you can experience heat exhaustion or, even worse, heat stroke from the dehydration.

The reverse is true too. If you have had heat exhaustion, it can damage your adrenals and lead to chronic fatigue.

I know this -- it happened to me.

Heat never bothered me until I did the 6-Day Course - similar to the old Outward Bound program. Spend a few days conquering your fears by jumping off cliffs with a zip-line, running uphill, and various physical and mental exertions. Crowded bunk cabins had no A/C and bathrooms were far away. Water was not encouraged nor was salt.

The Adirondacks were in a heat wave that summer but there was no reduction in activities. I got severely dehydrated, overheated from exercise and hot cabins, and stopped sweating. I began to hallucinate and had to leave the Course. 

Over the next 2 weeks, my Adrenals crashed. I lost 13 pounds of muscle which I never got back. (Cortisol is strongly connected with muscle function). I have struggled with low Cortisol and chronic fatigue ever since. I still can't sweat and must restrict many outdoor activities.

My Electrolyte ReHydration Drink 

Fill a bottle 2/3 rd's full of Spring or Mineral water, or reverse-osmosis water (NO alkalized water). Top with 100% Organic Juice. 

Add 3 large pinches of Himalayan Salt, about a tsp., or some Salt Sole. 

Shake and drink after sweating.

Symptoms of Heat Exhaustion and Heat Stroke

  • A change in sweating is a key symptom. If you are hot and stop sweating you are headed for heat stroke
  • You feel overheated or disoriented
  • Flushed red skin
  • Throbbing head or nausea
  • Your temperature elevates as high as 105 

Heat Exhaustion can wipe you out for weeks. Heat Stroke can kill you.

What to do if you suspect Heat Stroke 

  1. Quickly get body temperature down. Find shade and drench with water, or get into water.
  2. Drink water slowly, with 2 tsps. added salt and some kind of sugar such as fruit juice or actual sugar (see below).
  3. Call 911 for an IV saline solution and cooling body packs.
  4. Find a fan!

Who is susceptible to Adrenal Fatigue and Heat Stroke?

Everyone! Playing sports, hiking, gardening, sitting in saunas or by the pool can all cause critical overheating. The elderly, ill and those on diuretics are less able to handle heat.

Swimming is a common cause of dehydration. Hot sun, active play... You're sweating even though you don't realize it. 

Preventing Heat Exhaustion and Adrenal Fatigue

The adrenals regulate sodium, potassium , calcium and magnesium - the 4 key electrolytes. If you're overheated, the adrenals burn out trying to keep sodium and potassium in balance. Supporting your adrenals now can prevent heat exhaustion. I have many articles on the adrenals and adrenal support products in my online store such as this one and this one. Test and treat your adrenals!

A craving for salt is a common symptom of low adrenal function. I use fine ground Himalayan Salt like this one generously on my food and add it to my water in the Texas summer - maybe 1/4 tsp. several times a day. Or make a salt sole (So-Lay) - the briny liquid mixes quickly in water.

Avoid commercial white salt. It is highly processed and contains additives that make it hard to absorb. Choose Himalayan or Sun-Dried Sea Salt. And stay cool!

Choosing safer sunscreen? Avoid synthetic chemicals that absorb through the skin, get correct protection, and soak up some Vitamin D while you're at it. Here's how, including numerous links at the bottom of the page...

Five types of sunscreens

1). Organic Filters: synthetic chemical combos that absorb sun's radiation, preventing it from entering the skin. Here's a case where the word "organic" is bad.

2). Traditional Mineral Sunscreens reflect damaging rays. Most include zinc oxide or titanium oxide. They appear white on the skin since they reflect light.

3). Nano-Mineral sunscreens have tiny nano-particles of zinc and titanium oxide. Their safety is questioned as they may penetrate the skin, but they're still safer than organic filters.

4). Clothes and shade work well!

5). Healthy skin burns less. The Paleo Diet may change your tanning future.

Sunscreen ingredients to avoid

  • Oxybenzone is common in commercial sunscreens. Linked to elevated estrogen, endometriosis and allergic reactions. 
  • Retinyl Palmitate is a form of Vitamin A linked to skin tumors and lesions. It doesn't "help" sunscreen protection. Avoid it.
  • Spray sunscreen is too easy to inhale. Use topicals.
  • High SPF's only protect against UVB burning rays. They don't block UVA rays that age the skin, affect your immune system and promote skin cancer. You're not safe just because you aren't burning.
  • Parabens and PABA
  • Sunscreen/bug repellant combos - too many unpronounceable ingredients!

Are Mineral Sunscreens Safer?

In general, yes. But commercial brands of zinc and titanium sunscreens may still contain chemicals in the lotion. If you can't pronounce it, don't use it.

Many brands now use BOTH chemical and mineral filters. Read those labels or use the EWG sunscreen guide below.

Whether you’re Celiac, gluten-sensitive, or eating Ancestral or Paleo, finding hidden exposure to gluten can be life-changing. It was for me – breathing a tiny bit of oat dust in my pony’s feed was enough to keep my Celiac antibodies elevated.  

Perhaps even more important? The impact your gluten can have on others. Help enlighten friends and family with this article.

Taping your mouth at night improves the microbiome of the mouth and gut, increases energy, improves sleep, snoring, and allergies, and calms anxiety. I've been mouth taping at night for 15 years!

This Primal Diet - Modern Health podcast gives details on how and why to tape and other ideas to reduce snoring and allergies. The info is here in this blog post as well. 

Key Concept: The mouth is for eating. The nose is for breathing. Taping your mouth at night is the natural and correct way your body wants to breathe

When we snore or breathe through the mouth we deplete carbon dioxide - an essential blood gas that needs to be in balance with oxygen. Slowing the breath and breathing through the nose help increase carbon dioxide and can improve whole body chemistry.

Topics I cover on this Podcast:

  1. Why you get deeper sleep and less snoring
  2. How taping your mouth can improve asthma and allergies
  3. Improving dental health and breath
  4. Achieving a calmer mind 
  5. The benefits of Nitric Oxide and Carbon Dioxide
  6. How to tape

Links to things I mention:

  • Treat your allergies with Quercitin or D-Hist, and homeopathic Histaminum. Handle the allergens in your environment too, such as the cat that sleeps on your pillow. More on allergies here
  • If you have a chronic sinus infection Nutribiotic Nasal Spray may help.
  • Here’s a podcast I did with the world’s top trainer of Buteyko Breathing. It’s really helpful to learn more about how breathing affects your life! Especially if you snore or have asthma...

Are you using Functional Medicine to get well? Working with a practitioner who takes the time to review your lifestyle and food, and run better labs that give deeper insights? Do you and your provider have the same point of view - that everything you do, your living environment, your genetics, your emotions and your Microbiome all affect you?

In this podcast with Susan Blum, MD our topic is using Functional Medicine to get well. We talk about genetics, Nature and Nurture, elimination diets, the power of Silence, and that keyword - inflammation.

Whether your practitioner calls themselves Functional, Integrative, Holistic or Naturopathic, the goal is to change your future as well as your present. 

Topics we cover in this Primal Diet - Modern Health podcast 

  • WHY is my issue occurring and what can be done to fix the cause, not the symptom?
  • What is "whole person medicine?"
  • Why random supplements won't fix you
  • How to be a good patient

Walkabout Emu Oil is a completely unique superfood. Genetically unique male emu live on this oil for 54 days sitting full-time on the eggs. It's their only nutrition!
These emus are not ordinary breeds harvested for meat, cosmetic oil or feathers. They are carefully raised to produce this amazing Omega 3, 7 and 9 oil rich in Vitamin K2.

Walkabout Emu Oil facts

  1. Emu Oil is the richest natural source of Vitamin K2 MK-4 in the world. K2 places calcium in the body where it needs to go and can remove it from arteries, bone spurs and arthritic joints. 
  2. The abundant Omega fats in Emu Oil replace fish oil. Yay!
  3. As a completely whole food it contains many other nutrients in their natural form.
Listen in to my Primal Diet - Modern Health podcast with Dr. Will Schlinsog, the exclusive importer of Walkabout Emu Oil with his wife Elizabeth.

Highlights of this podcast on Walkabout Emu Oil

  • Emu Oil is a potent anti-inflammatory, useful for gut inflammation, skin disorders and auto-immune issues of all types
  • It took 20 years of breeding to get this emu species right!
  • 4 caps daily with food provide 1 tsp. of oil
  • How to use it topically for muscle pain, fractures and adding to kid's food 
  • Excellent for heart disease caused by calcification of arteries
  • Nothing is added - nothing is removed
