These Guys Are Still Confused About HDL!
High levels of good cholesterol may not benefit older women While good cholesterol has traditionally been known to be good for heart, a new study claimed that higher levels of the cholesterol may not always benefit middle aged and postmenopausal women. The findings showed that the traditional measure of the good cholesterol — one that carries fat away from heart, reduces the build-up of plaque and lowers potential for cardiovascular disease — fails to portray an accurate depiction of heart disease risk for postmenopausal women. It is because older women are subject to a variety of physiological changes in their sex hormones, lipids, body fat deposition and vascular health as they transition through menopause. The decrease of oestrogen — a cardio-protective sex hormone — and other metabolic changes can trigger chronic inflammation and alter the quality of HDL particles, the researchers explained. The findings bring into question the current use of total high-density lipoproteins (HDL) cholesterol to predict heart disease risk.
California and Hemp CBD – What’s Going on?
FIGHTING FOR HEMP-DERIVED CBD IN CALIFORNIA Recently, the California Department of Health issued this public statement about hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD). In summary, the agency argues that hemp-derived CBD products CANNOT be sold in retail markets in the Golden State. The US Hemp Roundtable refuses to accept this conclusion. Today, we have sent the agency this letter, strongly arguing that the Department’s interpretation of federal law is dead wrong. There’s no way that Congress nor the California General Assembly intended that CBD products that may contain high levels of THC could be readily available, but access to supplement and food products with zero THC that are both safe and non-addictive would be restricted. We will be following up this letter with meaningful action – petitioning state political leaders to interpret the law appropriately, or to pass new laws that clarify that the retail sale of hemp-derived CBD is permissible. We will be enlisting you in these efforts, much in the same way as we have successfully engaged in grassroots lobbying of Congress. Stay tuned for marching orders. But until then, please let us know if you are interested in supporting the efforts.
The Healing Revolution with Dr. Frank King!
The Eight Essentials #1: Engaging the Power of the Human Spirit
Modern medicine looks at humans as biochemical beings whose health can be summarized with numbers and graphed on charts.
But we all know we’re much more than a collection of chemicals. We are spirit, and will, and energy. Ignoring those aspects of ourselves is a surefire way to live unhealthy, unfulfilled lives.
Engaging the power of the human spirit is the first of the Eight Essentials of life for a reason: Until we understand that our beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors are key to our wellbeing, we will remain stuck on the hamster wheel of modern life.
Science is finally beginning to scratch the surface of comprehending the self-healing – and conversely, the self-destroying – power of the human will. Living a positive life focused on our goals and purpose changes the way we think and live. Nurturing the human spirit is key to good health. Researchers are just starting to understand the astonishing human ability to rise above genetic “destiny” and set a new, healthier course.
When you make life-destroying choices related to the human spirit…
- You suffer depression
- You feel anxious
- You’re apathetic toward life
When you make life-affirming choices…
- You exude confidence
- You live a life of purpose
- You’re happier
How to Engage the Power of the Human Spirit
First and foremost, cultivate an attitude of positivity. Life may not be perfect, but when you look for the good in every day, you will find it. Recognize that your beliefs are everything. When you believe that you are the victor – not the victim – in your own story, everything is possible.
Now, try some of these everyday attitude shifts to unlock the potential of your powerful human spirit:
- Stop and smell the roses. Take the time to enjoy a walk in the park, or play with your pet. Enjoy the little pleasures in life.
- Nurture your goals and purpose. Living a life of purpose can help you get through setbacks because you know that your life is bigger than any disappointment. Look for deeper meaning and greater aspirations for your life.
- Live simply. Material possessions do not equal happiness. Learn to need less, and your money stresses will decrease.
- Invest in friends and family. There is no better way to spend your time than with people you love and who love you.
- Smile … and stay positive!
You hold the power to shape your future. What will you do with this power?

Hour 2 – Special Guest – Linda Isaacs, M.D.
Linda L. Isaacs, M.D., is a graduate of Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. She offers individualized nutritional protocols for patients with cancer and other degenerative diseases, as well as protocols for those who wish to maintain their health. She worked with her colleague, Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, for more than twenty years, and during that time they published articles together about the remarkable results they saw in various types of illnesses.

Mourning and Resilience
Linda L. Isaacs, M.D.
When I was in my mid-30s, I wrote an article entitled “Emotional and Spiritual Aspects of Healing,” (click herefor an updated version) which I placed on the website I shared with the late Nicholas J. Gonzalez, M.D. The idea for the article came to me in a sudden burst of inspiration. I went through the list of patients in our practice with remarkable outcomes and looked for personal qualities common among them. The article discussed these qualities: diligence, perseverance, joy, trust, love, and truth. I hoped it would be helpful to our patients.
Over the years, on reviewing the article I have felt both pleased by how it came out and challenged by the aspects of it that I needed to put into practice myself. Recently, based on the events of the past two years of my life, I realized that there was a big piece missing. That piece is resilience, the ability to face and recover from adversity and loss.
While most physicians deal with loss on a regular basis professionally, in my personal life I have been fortunate, as most people in my family have had long lives. My grandparents were already 75 or older when I was born; we did not live nearby and I never got to know them. Over the years, aunts and uncles passed away, but they were all in their 80s and 90s and their deaths seemed almost “normal” to my shallow teenaged self.
When I was 42 and my father was 80, he died of myelodysplastic syndrome, a form of leukemia. His final illness lasted two years, and death came as a relief to him. But he himself told me that those two years had been very productive for him. He came to terms and was at peace with decisions he had made in his life and with his relationships with his children. While I mourned his loss very deeply, and I still miss him, there were no unresolved issues when he left us. We had plenty of time to deal with every issue we could have had.
As time went on, my mother’s well-being became an increasing concern. She insisted on living alone, with no family and few friends nearby, while her ability to take care of herself deteriorated. She stubbornly refused to wear an alert pendant or even to have someone check on her more than once a week, even as she had trouble accomplishing the basic functions of life.
During the last few years, as I waited for some disaster to overtake my mother, I noticed that my blood pressure gradually began to creep up, at times into territory that warranted medication. Like many physicians, I am not a good patient. I was able to rationalize delaying conventional treatment, instead taking extra magnesium supplements and practicing restful thoughts before getting out the blood pressure cuff. Then, in March 2015, during a busy day at my office, I got a call from an ambulance driver who told me that my mother had fallen, was unable to get up by herself, and had spent four days on the floor before she was found.

Nicholas James Gonzalez was born in Queens, NY in 1947 and died at his home in New York City on July 21, 2015. Dr. Gonzalez graduated from Brown University, Phi Beta Kappa, magna cum laude, with a degree in English Literature. He subsequently worked as a journalist, first at Time Inc., before pursuing premedical studies at Columbia. He then received his medical degree from Cornell University Medical College in 1983. During a postgraduate immunology fellowship under Dr. Robert A. Good, considered the father of modern immunology and for years President of Sloan-Kettering, he completed a research study evaluating an aggressive nutritional therapy in the treatment of advanced cancer. Dr. Gonzalez died on July 21, 2015 at his home. Since 1987, Dr. Gonzalez had been in private practice in New York City, treating patients diagnosed with cancer and other serious degenerative illnesses. His nutritional research has received substantial financial support from Procter & Gamble and Nestle. Results from a pilot study published in 1999 described the most positive data in the medical literature for pancreatic cancer.
In his lifetime, Dr. Gonzalez released four books. The first, The Trophoblast and the Origins of Cancer, discusses from a contemporary perspective Dr. John Beard, who 100 years ago first suggested an anti-cancer effect for pancreatic enzymes. The second in the series, One Man Alone, presents the results of Dr. Gonzalez’s five-year investigation of the alternative cancer practitioner Dr. William Donald Kelley completed under the direction of Dr. Good. The third, What Went Wrong: The Truth Behind the Clinical Trial of the Enzyme Treatment of Cancer documents Dr. Gonzalez’s battle to have his therapy properly tested in an NCI clinical study.
Three additional books by Dr. Gonzalez have been posthumously published by his wife, Mary Beth Gonzalez. His two volume, best case report series, Conquering Cancer, and his book, Nutrition and The Autonomic Nervous System – The Scientific Foundations of The Gonzalez Protocol, about why different people need different diets. All of Dr. Gonzalez’s books are available on Amazon.
Don’t Blink – You Might Miss The Doctor
Doctors Give Patients 11 Seconds To Explain Reason For Visit Before Interrupting Ever feel like your doctor is in a rush to get you out the door when you come in for a visit? You’re not just imagining things. A new study finds physicians give a patient an average of just 11 seconds to describe their issue before cutting them off. Researchers from the University of Florida determined that for all the waiting we do after we arrive at a medical practitioner’s office, its the doctors who seem to have the least amount of patience. The study showed that just a third of physicians give patients adequate time to explain why they’re there. “Our results suggest that we are far from achieving patient-centered care,” says study co-author Naykky Singh Ospina in a release, adding that medicals specialists proved to be in the biggest hurry, compared to primary care physicians. Singh Ospina, who led the research team, sought to examine the flow of conversation between clinicians and patients, and more importantly, see how viable it was for the most important person in the room — the patient, of course — to lead the discussion. Her researchers secured videos of consultations that were filmed in clinics across the U.S. as training sessions for the physicians between 2008 and 2015.
