Hello and welcome to the Medical Medium Blog: HEALTH ARTICLES! I'm so happy to have you here. Visit this blog anytime for inspiration and valuable insights on foods that will help you to heal and feel your best. Happy reading!
Garlic is an incredible healing food. It kills off the viruses and bacteria that are behind countless chronic illnesses, symptoms, and conditions and helps flush toxic viral and bacterial waste out of the lymphatic system.
Garlic also strengthens the immune system. Phytochemical compounds from garlic seep through the walls of the intestinal tract into blood vessels that lead up through the hepatic portal vein into the liver. The liver’s immune system welcomes these compounds because it knows they’re like a relief army coming in so the immune system can find reprieve and retreat to build up its forces so it can fight against pathogens.
There are many ways to enjoy garlic. The best way to consume garlic for maximum healing benefits is to eat it raw. Raw garlic can be finely cut, minced, or pressed in a garlic press and sprinkled on top of any savory meal. While raw garlic is best, garlic can also offer benefits when cooked broths, soups, steamed, and stir-fried.
Some ways to consume garlic include:
• Minced on salads or cooked veggie dishes
• Blended or stirred into salad dressings
• In dips such as fresh guacamole, salsa, and hummus
• In broths and soups such as Medical Medium Healing Broth
• Minced on cucumber or zucchini noodles
• In Medical Medium Spinach Soup
• In Medical Medium Turmeric Ginger Shots or fresh juice
• Minced on Potato Bruschetta, baked fries, baked potatoes, or any of your other favorite healing potato recipes
You can find these recipes and many more using garlic on the MedicalMedium.com blog.

Potatoes are an incredible healing food for any chronic illness, symptom, or condition, but sadly, potatoes get a bad and unfair rap. Truth is, the toxic oil that potatoes are fried in, the cheese sauce ladled on top, and the butter, milk, and cream mashed in are what have the world convinced that potatoes are bad for us. Potatoes don’t cause health issues; the other ingredients served with them do.
The entire potato, inside and out, is valuable and beneficial for your health: potato plants draw some of the highest concentration of macro and trace minerals from the earth. Potatoes are also high in potassium and rich in vitamin B6, as well as a fantastic source of amino acids, especially lysine in its bioactive form. Lysine is a powerful weapon against viruses such as Epstein-Barr and shingles that are behind rheumatoid arthritis, joint pain, autoimmune disease, and more. Potatoes also contain tyrosine, a chemical needed to produce thyroid hormones.
Potatoes are antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial, with nutritional cofactors and coenzymes plus bioactive compounds to help keep you healthy and assist you with stress.
Potatoes can help heal digestive conditions. Soothing to the intestinal linings because they are gentle on the nerves inside the lining—they’re nonabrasive—potatoes assimilate and digest easily, even with some of the worst digestive issues.
Potatoes bind onto colonies of bacteria that are causing diverticulitis or prostatitis and carry them out past the colon; they can drive out strep, E. coli, staph, and unproductive funguses from the body. The chemical compounds in potatoes have a sticky, binding nature to them. It’s not just the starch that causes this. As potato moves through the intestinal tract, pathogens cling and bind to the compounds and can’t escape. Potatoes even help drive worms such as pinworms out of the rectum.
Potatoes are good for the brain and the liver, helping us to be grounded and centered. Potatoes are high in glucose that provides substance to the liver, as it’s precisely what the liver relies on to keep strong. It also helps build up glycogen storage, the very resource that protects us against blood sugar problems, weight gain, fatty liver, and dirty blood syndrome.
Enjoy potatoes steamed (without oil, butter, or cream) for maximum healing benefits.
Discover more of the healing benefits of potatoes on the Medical Medium podcast on Apple Podcasts titled “Potato: The Nightshade Healer”.

When anxiety interferes with your life, it’s caused by toxic heavy metals (such as mercury, aluminum, and copper), viruses (such as one of the over 60 varieties of Epstein-Barr virus or one of the over 30 varieties of shingles virus), or a combination of both toxic heavy metals and viruses. Most of the time, it’s both at once, with one cause more dominant depending on the individual case.
Anxiety can also be triggered, accelerated, or heightened by emotional conflict, although toxic heavy metals and/or a virus must be present for the anxiety to become sustained, chronic, and longer term.
Anxiousness that comes and goes in a milder form can have the same toxic heavy metal and/or viral causes, or it can result from mild emotional injury or prolonged stress on their own.

In most cases, neurological symptoms are a mystery to medical research and science. If physical injury has not occurred, then neurological symptoms are typically caused by one or more of the over 60 varieties of Epstein-Barr virus, one or more of the over 30 varieties of shingles virus, or any of the multiple strains of herpes simplex 1 or herpes simplex 2.
These viruses feed on mercury and other toxins that reside inside the body, and they release neurotoxins to which the nervous system is very sensitive, leading to inflammation of the brain that appears mysterious to medical research and science.
These neurotoxins that viruses (such as EBV) expel after feeding on toxic heavy metals create so many of the symptoms that sufferers of autoimmune disease experience. The neurological symptoms of fibromyalgia, MS, Lyme disease, RA, Hashimoto’s, and ME/CFS, as well as stand-alone symptoms such as fatigue, aches, pains, tingles, numbness, vertigo, dizziness, tinnitus, eye floaters, nerve pain, neuropathy, heart palpitations, burning skin, and migraines, spasms, restlessness, restless legs, muscle weakness, tightness in the chest—to name just a few—are a result of these neurotoxins.
Oftentimes, the viruses take advantage of previous injuries, where the nerves were weakened, allowing the viruses and the neurotoxins they produce to create bodily inflammation and discomfort.
Troublemaker foods such as eggs, milk, cheese, butter, and gluten worsen these symptoms, as do colognes, perfumes, air fresheners, and scented candles, all of which can feed the viruses accelerating neurological issues. A high-fat/high-protein diet interferes with glucose that nerve cells need critically for rejuvenation.
Find out more about how neurological symptoms develop and how you can heal in my podcast episode Neurological Symptoms: Body Pain, Dizziness, Tingles – Oh Sh*t! or in my book Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal: Healing Plans for Sufferers of Anxiety, Depression, Acne, Eczema, Lyme, Gut Problems, Brain Fog, Weight Issues, Migraines, Bloating, Vertigo, Psoriasis, Cysts, Fatigue, PCOS, Fibroids, UTI, Endometriosis & Autoimmune.

In our day and age, B12 is dearly needed. B12 reserves are diminishing with each generation that goes by and deficiencies are growing at an alarming rate. In truth, almost everyone is deficient in B12 today.
Even if you get a blood test that shows you are high in B12, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the kind of B12 your body can use. Listen to the Medical Medium podcast on Apple podcasts titled “B12 Trick-or-Treat: You Don’t Get It From Meat” to understand how this works.
The body relies on B12 for thousands of daily functions.
• Is critical for the nervous system
• Supports and repairs the endocrine system
• Boosts mental and emotional health
• Builds the immune system
• Protects against neurotoxins from viruses such as EBV
• Strengthens neurotransmitter chemicals
• Keeps homocysteine levels down, which helps reduce inflammation
• Is critical for methylation
• Helps with liver cell communication
• Helps keep the liver out of stagnation
• Strengthens hepatocytes and all other liver cells, as well as liver lobules
• Helps prevent the liver’s blood vessels from atrophying
• Helpful for every symptom and condition
In my B12 podcast, I share that the best kind of supplement to take is B12 with methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin. Together, they make the perfect combination to support your B12 needs. For starters, methylcobalamin is good for your eyes, hearing, heart, nervous system, and adrenals. And adenosylcobalamin is good for your central nervous system, spleen, pancreas, liver, and endocrine system. It’s critical to have both of these types of B12. They work as a team to help with the triggers we are up against on this planet, the emotional hardships, and the physical struggles we can go through. They work in combination to battle obstacles together. It’s a combined coenzyme power. Find the B12 I recommend on my supplement directory.
To find out the best dosages of B12 for almost 200 different symptoms and conditions, you can refer to the chapter titled “The True Cause of Your Symptoms and Conditions with Dosages to Heal” in the New York Times best-selling book, Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal: Healing Plans for Sufferers of Anxiety, Depression, Acne, Eczema, Lyme, Gut Problems, Brain Fog, Weight Issues, Migraines, Bloating, Vertigo, Psoriasis, Cysts, Fatigue, PCOS, Fibroids, UTI, Endometriosis & Autoimmune.

Vinegar is often considered to be a healthy food to include in your diet, especially apple cider vinegar. In truth, vinegar, even the best kind, has a detrimental effect on the body and is best avoided if you are trying to cleanse your body in order to heal a chronic illness, symptom, or condition.
“Vinegar dehydrates the body on a deep, deep organ level, and when you’re cleansing, you don’t want to dehydrate the body. Vinegar preserves poisons, trapping them in your organs—and not so that it can then drive them out of your body. Toxins dehydrate us, as they require an abundance of water to dilute them and eventually flush them out of our cells so they can safely leave our organs without hurting us. Rather than help flush out these toxins, vinegar allows toxins to penetrate our cells and organs because it sucks the water out of cells, and that even drives poisons and toxins deeper into organ tissue.
Picture this: a jar of pickles, with cucumbers sitting in a bath of water and vinegar. If the water in that jar had traces of fluoride, lead, arsenic, pesticides, or any other variety of chemical poison, the vinegar would bind onto those toxins, pushing them deep into the pickles, possibly all the way to the core. That’s how vinegar works. Well, we have water in our blood too. Toxins also float in it, and it’s a good thing that the water is present, because normally, it’s supposed to carry toxins along and flush them out. When we consume vinegar, though, suddenly we’re the jar of pickles, and our organs are the cucumbers getting pickled. The vinegar begins by separating the toxins in our blood from the water clinging to them. This allows the toxins to burrow into organs, glands, and connective tissue—which works precisely against what you’re trying to accomplish on a cleanse. Vinegar also sucks water out of our cells, robbing us of deep hydration reserves in organs such as the liver.
If you’re thinking that apple cider vinegar is exempt from all this vinegar talk, think again. Yes, ACV is more nutritious than other vinegars, because it’s made from apples, which are nutrient-rich. It’s not that much more nutritious than red wine or grape vinegar; grapes hold nutrition just as apples do. All of these fruits are in fermented form, though, and we can’t get away from the truth that no matter the source, vinegar dehydrates the body on a deep, systemic level, causing trouble by keeping poisons inside the body when we’re trying to get rid of them.”

Caffeine (including coffee, matcha, chocolate, black tea, and green tea) has two effects that can impact your health negatively, especially if you are cleansing with the guidance in Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal: Healing Plans for Sufferers of Anxiety, Depression, Acne, Eczema, Lyme, Gut Problems, Brain Fog, Weight Issues, Migraines, Bloating, Vertigo, Psoriasis, Cysts, Fatigue, PCOS, Fibroids, UTI, Endometriosis & Autoimmune in order to heal chronic illnesses, symptoms, and conditions. One, it dehydrates the body. Two, it prompts the adrenal glands to pump unnecessary levels of adrenaline into your bloodstream, causing a variety of compromises to your brain, liver, and kidneys.
Caffeine gives the adrenals a sense of fight or flight without our actual life circumstances being fight or flight. Now, fight or flight is a privilege we hold, an option for when we’re dealing with stress, loss, or confrontation. Fight or flight is the release of complex blends of life-saving hormones from the adrenals, blends that medical research and science don’t yet even comprehend. It’s for when we’re in a time of need and require the ability to think or act fast for survival.
When we consume caffeine, it creates a boy-who-cried-wolf situation. It’s a kid pulling the fire alarm at school when there’s no fire. If you’re consuming caffeine all day long, you’re continually telling your body that there’s a crisis, prompting your adrenals to respond all day long. That can create a numbness. When a real crisis comes, we may not respond appropriately because we’re basically immune to the experience of adrenaline hitting the central nervous system. And the specific blend of adrenaline that fight or flight triggers can be highly toxic to the body because it’s highly acidic and corrosive to the nervous system and organs. This kind of adrenaline release is not meant to be used every day, let alone multiple times a day. It's meant to be used sparingly. Over time, this adrenaline blend can slowly scorch the liver as the organ sponges up the adrenaline to protect you.
Caffeine addiction forces the adrenals to pump a harsh blend of adrenaline through the body for hours and hours. It’s truly unhealthy, and down the road, it’s going to lead to aging, damaged skin, brain fog, severe focus and concentration problems, fatigue, hair loss, and weight gain. These symptoms may not show themselves in someone’s 20s. They tend to surface later in the 30s and 40s. Even if someone is experiencing weight loss or stable weight right now, they can still gain weight from it later, once the adrenals have been trashed enough or the liver has become stagnant and sluggish enough from excess adrenaline caused by caffeine use. It also causes reactions such as blood sugar imbalances, headaches, insomnia, anxiousness, mysterious sadness, depersonalization, chronic dehydration, kidney stones, and adrenal fatigue.
Caffeine feels good. It gets us to get up and go. But we pay a price for relying on caffeine to do that. When something has that much control over your life, it’s not about giving you pleasure anymore. It’s about taking something away that you weren’t even aware was being taken away. Experiencing life without reliance on a stimulant is a positive direction to take for physical and spiritual elevation. Don’t let caffeine be the factor that holds you back.
