The evolutionary mis-match: Vitamin D

Firstly thank you to the Lions of Chiropractic, on Monday night I presented a short talk on vitamin B12: An epidemic of mis-diagnosis and missed diagnosis. For me learning functional medicine and nutrition from a Chiropractic point of view, is like taking the red pill in the film The matrix. Once you see the truth about […]

Become the Sherlock Holmes of health

Back in 2001 when I was a fresh-faced graduate and naive beyond belief, I was all about the magic happening with my hands.

Inflammageing

After we re-opened clinic, some of the older patients I have cared for over many years were slower to return and some of the changes over the 3-4 months since I saw them last were pretty upsetting. A combination of muscle wasting/sarcopenia, rounded posture, shuffling gaits, unsteadiness, pale skin, depression….lockdown has not been good for […]

Did you see the recent news on Vitamin D?

Did you see the news? A few weeks ago we talked about evidence based nonsense and why the drive for RCT’s to “prove” everything has left us in a place David Sackett, the “founder” of EBM, did not anticipate or like.
