Great article. Only one comment. Previously I was a high school teacher. 3000 students on the smallest campus in Miami. For 10 years BH I was hardly ill. Not many headaches etc. I believed it was because I was surrounded all day 7 am until 10 pm by students with different types of colds etc and I built up an immune system. Fast forward to the present I changed jobs and now I get ill at least once a year sometimes twice. Can't prove my concept just throwing it up for discussion.
PS still holding at 194 pounds (lost 20 pounds) and following the diet THANKS!!! Also please give my regards to David anytime he and Rabbi Brody are in the southern part of town I will make time to see them.

David, first I am SOOOO proud of you!!! Keep up the fantastic work! Are you exercising? Lift weights - that'll help you burn fat at the same time as you build muscle. As for your colds, I would suggest two things: first, a high quality superfood. I take five capsules every day, and I used to get sick almost every two weeks for about three years! Now, B"H if I get something, it's very mild, which is also because I take something called Oregano Supreme. I have found this to be the best anti-viral immune booster in all my years of experimenting. I take 3 capsules twice a day when I feel something coming on. The trick is to keep taking it for about two days after you feel better as well, because it does such a good job at reducing symptoms that you may think you've recovered 100% when it's only been 80%. Third, Vitamin D3 drops are a must. Vitamin D is the number one immune-boosting vitamin. Take 4,000 IU every day, but take it with a fat because vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin. Don't be scared of toxicity. You won't get it at this dosage. If you still haven't had enough, you can also take vitamin C. Keep in touch and let me know how you're doing!

David

Thanks for the advice as for exercising I walk 3 miles a day however according to the neighbors my wife walks (power walks with weights and speed) while I stroll
I don't enjoy lifting weights and I truly dislike gyms
My daughter decided to become a vegetarian except for fish so that's the new diet
Vegetables fruits fish nuts tofu (my wife makes it actually taste like something) etc and breakfast is after 11 am
AND NO SUGAR OR PROCESSED ANYTHING except for bread and challah

Racheli

That's great, David! Just make sure to get your heart rate up. That's not only good for losing weight, but you already know it's great for your heart and for delivering oxygen to the rest of your body. I'm so impressed with your wife and your daughter! Kol hakavod to all of you!! Hashem should bless you with many long, happy, and healthy years together, Amen!

B"H
Its not so much the dairy, its the wheat. It depends on your body+sensitivity. All my life the allergy.
once thise small cavities swell, inflame,
that is when infection can set in because it cant drain. when you have that reaction your whole body starts to fight. Eating wheat berries+having hives all over your body, or when you cant breathe.
When your sensitive its not a picnic.
I am thankful for those antibiotics.
moving halfway across the globe, helped.
Yes, maybe growing up in a dirty environment helps. I dont know.
The allergist said I have to be in a very clean environment. Ha Yes, I grew up in a clean environment, but what does that have to do with weeds? Its in the
air.
I would caution parents about this.
10% of us dont fall in that catagory+it can be dangerous.

Shimshie

Hi. Thanks very much for your interesting and helpful articles!
Quick question. What is Rabbi Brody (and/or Rabbi Arush's) thoughts on some of your more "out of the box" advice & articles (eg. such as the anti-vaccination push). I know he is very health conscious, but does he agree with all of the advise you offer here (fasting until 11AM, volcano ash drink...)?

Racheli

Shimshie, that's a great question! Rav Brody has no problem with what I write, but I cannot personally speak for his views regarding vaccines, and the same goes for Rav Arush. I know that they both do not have very high regard for the approach of modern medicine, and focus on eating healthy and living healthy lifestyles. They do their best to stay far away from doctors, and visit holistic doctors if they have a need to. My view on vaccines is definitely going against the grain of the religious world, and that's because most religious people just don't know their information. Unfortunately, the rabbis they go to for medical advice are also only given half of the story by the doctors who supply them with information. Also, we need to consider that if the gedolim suddenly came out with a stam anti-vaccine stance, everyone would go crazy. This wouldn't be a wise idea. I have heard of people going to gedolim with valid concerns about vaccinating, and they were told not to. The bottom line is that people should start researching for themselves, and stop blindly accepting what they're being force-fed by doctors. The confusion people have is because the doctors believe in the vaccine propaganda, because that's the only thing they were taught. Their belief plus their genuinely good intentions to help others (hopefully) makes it very hard for an uninformed person to resist their medical recommendations. There is enough information out there that gives people the actual opportunity to make INFORMED DECISIONS and to THINK FOR THEMSELVES. I am so fed up with the sheeple mentality. Our children are paying the price, and it's not fair.

Eric

The best thing about modern medicine is that it is evidence based. Unfortunately greed can get in the way. This part of human nature applies to all healing arts. I suggest asking any healer what level of evidence the treatment has.
Rating System for the Hierarchy of Evidence: Quantitative Questions

Level I: Evidence from a systematic review of all relevant randomized controlled trials (RCT's), or evidence-based clinical practice guidelines based on systematic reviews of RCT's

Level II: Evidence obtained from at least one well-designed Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT)

Level III: Evidence obtained from well-designed controlled trials without randomization, quasi-experimental

Level IV: Evidence from well-designed case-control and cohort studies

Level V: Evidence from systematic reviews of descriptive and qualitative studies

Level VI: Evidence from a single descriptive or qualitative study

Level VII: Evidence from the opinion of authorities and/or reports of expert committees

Racheli

Eric, while in theory you are correct, evidence is manipulated all the time. Studies are manipulated all the time. It's all about furthering whatever agenda the companies want to push, whether it's a new miracle drug or treatment. Money is always the bottom line. You should read "Racketeering in Medicine" by Dr. James Carter.
