EAT FAT!

This is really more of a general rant. We live in a society that is fat averse. Low fat diets are encouraged, even for children. When we do eat fat, we eat ‘cheap’ hydrogenated fat that is toxic to the human body. Soy, corn and canola oils are no better. We use hand sanitizer that […]

Short Cycle HBOT

Following is the body of a letter sent to Dr. Harch describing our experience with ‘short cycle’ HBOT and its effect on stem cell therapy.

Food/Nourish/Kate Farms

The body cannot heal without the correct building blocks. The hospital first proposed feeding Robert a canned milk, sugar and soy based formula. Being ‘foodies’ we requested something better. We were told that the offered formula was fine and that there was nothing else. We put out a plea for help to our circle of […]
