Readers Weigh in on Oximation

By Administrator

In the article, "Hypothyroidism, Candida & "Oximation: Toward a New Model of Chronic Disease" (Winter 2008), Dr. Roby Mitchell states that, "Vitamin D2, for instance, is a component of the yeast cell wall. As yeast proliferates, it may cause deficiencies of the 'vitamone' D3, for which D2 is a precursor."

Your recent article on Insulin Resistance in the Winter 2006 edition was an excellent review of many issues confronting the clinician in diagnosing and treating Metabolic Syndrome. Several issues, however, require further clarification.

 

Dr. Gonzalez Clarifies Legal Issues

By Administrator

Your Dec. 15, 2000 issue carried an extended article related to my work, my research and my apparent legal difficulties. Several paragraphs relate to the two lawsuits brought against me; they contain significant misinformation both directly and by omission.

HPC Reader Weighs in on Chinese Herbs

By 6/25/01

Your approach to Chinese herbs (in the article, "Six Chinese Herbs Every Doctor Should Know," HPC June 15, 2001) is very Western. Chinese herbs are not taken individually, but complexed in unique formulas which balance them.

Your approach to Chinese herbs (in the article, "Six Chinese Herbs Every Doctor Should Know," HPC June 15, 2001) is very Western. Chinese herbs are not taken individually, but complexed in unique formulas which balance them.

Also, other herbs are used to neutralize potential ill-effects of the toxic herbs. For example, when Fu Zhi is cooked with licorice, the toxicity is almost eliminated. This concept of taking individual herbs for symptoms is so anti-Oriental medicine.

Cinnabar (a mercury containing compound mentioned in the article) is not even available any more from reputable herbal companies.

Please try looking at herbs from the paradigm they come from.

 

Naturopaths Pioneer Holistic Residency Training

By Nov. 4, 2002

I recently finished reading your October 15 edition. The article, "Nation's First Holistic Medicine Residency on the Horizon" surprised me. You write, "The University of Colorado's department of Family Medicine is boldly going where no medical school has gone before: residency training in holistic medicine." Though your audience is also comprised of naturopathic physicians, the article had no mention of the several residencies in family medicine at naturopathic medical colleges such as National College of Naturopathic Medicine (NCNM).

Reader Challenges Outcome of Internal Cleansing

By Administrator

I just had to write to comment on the silly pictures you included in the article, "Spring Cleaning: Internal Cleansing for Optimal Health" (Holistic Primary Care, April 15, 2003).

From the Editor

By Administrator

Five years ago, Holistic Primary Care was little more than a dream and an 8-page prototype. Fired up with all the enthusiasm and naivete typical of a start-up, Meg and I set out to build an information bridge between conventional and "alternative" medicine, between ancient healing wisdom and modern scientific knowledge.
