This week Dr. Jack and Mary discuss mental health issues; specifically the role malnutrition is thought to play across numerous mental health conditions. There seems to be a correlation between nutrition and anxiety, fear, depression and more.
With drugs often prescribed for these conditions, any root cause nutritional deficiencies are not addressed. That's why we are here!
We are also very please to announce a slight upgrade in your experience with Forbidden Doctor's podcast. We are now a Videocast! (sort of)
Our audio is now accompanied by video slides that augment the materials we are discussing each week. For those of you driving or running around with no screen to watch, don't worry! We are still a podcast first. Our audio presentation will remain focused on your ears!
But we hope those of you with screens can now enjoy supplemental content as you listen.

Sugar makes us sick. The USDA doesn't even have to pretend this is controversial anymore. They simply ignore the facts instead, approving sugar-laden morsels at an ever increasing rate. Based on well-researched, well-documented findings, Dr. Jack and Mary have an amazing list of unhealthy and unsavory facts about refined sugar and we're going to share it with you today!
It's not just that sugar is unhealthy; it's also addictive, signaling some of the same markers in the brain that opiates will trigger, and causing real withdraw symptoms if you stop eating sugar, cold turkey.
These alarming trends of our weight, our general health, and our ever increasing consumption of refined sugars is only leading in one direction; the wrong one.
Tune in the learn some essential facts about this scourge on our health and some things you can do to minimize your own risk, while still enjoying the occasional snack.

We'd like to think that when we get sick, the last bastion of hope for health care, our doctors, urgent care facilities, and hospitals would be the place to be for the best chance to get well.
If only this were true every time...
There are numerous cases of people winding up in worse shape than when they went in for help in the first place.
Dr. Jack and Mary peel back the layers on several studies of this phenomenon to learn more about what we should all be watching out for, if we do have to go to the doctor, or worse, need a hospital stay.
If you or anyone you know has major health care coming up soon, you will want to know about the 12 ways the health care system may be blowing it, and making us worse off!
The most important theme here is that you are empowered to ask questions and demand answers.
What is the main problem?
What do I need to do?
Why is it important for me to do this?
This podcast will give you some surprising things to consider.

The concept of methylation keeps coming up since the confusion around the MTHFR variation first took hold. The body's ability to reign in inflammation events is based on the process of methylation. And methylation is an essential process regulated within the body by the MTHFR gene.
So it's no surprise that serious health crises emerge when methylation processes are disrupted within the body.
This week Dr. Jack and Mary give us some much needed insight into the science of methylation, and things all of us can do to mitigate the risk of MTHFR mutation or abhorrent expression.
It's not a binary. Methylation and its effectiveness in individuals is on a spectrum. Most of us could benefit from support of the methylation processes within our own bodies. Tune in for details.

Doctors die too, and they don't die like the rest of us.
This week Dr. Jack and Mary talk about a major Johns-Hopkins survey doctors related to their own wishes for emergency care if they were to lose the ability to communicate those wishes.
Doctors have a unique perspective on the ends of lives, since they are involved more often than not, more-or-less directly with the events at the ends of many lives.
Tune in and be stunned to learn some of the findings in this study. Do you know how you feel about your own case and what you would want done? Perhaps we should let these doctors be our guide!

Fat remains one of the most misunderstood, and even misrepresented substances available for human consumption. This week Dr. Jack and Mary get into the thick of fat.
What's the real difference between saturated and unsaturated fat? What's the difference between mono-unsaturated fat and poly-unsaturated fat?
Rather than oversimplified "good-fat/bad-fat" dichotomies, Dr. Jack and Mary help us understand the complicated science of fat, and what's really going on in our own bodies when fat is introduced in it's various forms.
Tune in to learn the essentials of fat science and fat history in our crazed, US food industry.

This week Dr. Jack and Mary share their Top 20 Protocols list. For various reasons over the years, both personally and professionally, these 20 protocols have proven time and again to be effective and necessary for living an optimal, healthy life.
So often we overlook the critical role nutrition plays in our health and in our sickness, and our mission at the Forbidden Doctor is spreading our knowledge about the role of nutrition.
Helping people learn how to heal themselves is incredibly rewarding!
Great work if you can get it...

Dr. Jack and Mary interrupt their normally-scheduled podcast this week to talk about recent stunning findings related to immunotherapy in our battle against cancer.
That is to say, using one's own immune system to execute a more targeted fight against the cancerous tissues in one's body.
The research goes back over 100 years, as physicians and researchers saw numerous infections actually lead to remissions of cancer in many patients over the years. It was never clear exactly what was occurring when remission took place.
With the modern variation in this treatment, the side effects can be extremely difficult to manage, but as usual, proper nutritional support can make or break the efficacy of treatments such as this.
Tune in to hear Dr. Jack and Mary discuss the details and the science of immunotherapeutic cancer treatment.
