"Why are we so sick?"

Continuing the series, Part 1 - MISSING NUTRIENTS

Focusing today on Cod Liver Oil & Vitamin A

I started this broadcast at noon, but something went wrong, and I was cut off after about 15 minutes. Trying again! Please feel free to tune in later, but I am going to re-record while I am still at my desk!

"Why ARE we so sick?"

From our toxic-chemical laden environment and food supply to commonplace nutritional deficiencies, to the poor lifestyle habits of today, it is more a question of...

"Why are we ALL not sick?"

In this series I am still in Part 1, Nutritional Deficiencies.

Lately I've been talking about the B vitamins.

Today, based on a client interaction yesterday, my attention turns to Vitamin A, actually, and...

Cod Liver Oil - a rich source of both vitamins A&D.

My client has longstanding issues with:

Thyroid Disease

Menorrhagia (prolonged, excessive menstrual bleeding)


Yesterday she mentioned having a skin condition called milia on her chest. I remembered way back from my Adele Davis Days in her book Let's Have Healthy Children her mention of milia as a common condition in newborns but that she attributed to low vitamin A status in the mother. That sent me down the bunny trail that leads to some of the info I share below and will be talking about on the air.
