Health Q&A: December 5, 2016


Question : Hey Dr. G. Following your instructions, from our appt. I need to check in about Natrum Muriaticum.. From my understanding, its a 21 day course taken every 3 days. So, I understand that would be 7 doses, yes??  I just finished my 7th dose and I still have liquid left to drink… Should I finish that??  I would like to add that I feel some improvement, but the humidity and heat here has also gotten better. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would say I feel better somewhere between 2 and 3…   Any feedback is...

Question : Pumpkin Donut Holes (paleo, grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free)

Prep Time: 15 min

Cook Time: 13 min

Ready in: 28 min

Yield: 30 donut holes

Ingredients

For the donut holes:

  • 1/2 cup (66 grams) coconut flour
  • 3/4 cup (75 grams) almond flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 7 tablespoons (98 grams) unsalted butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup (120 milliliters) maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup (120 grams) canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • For the cinnamon sugar:
  • 1/3 cup (67 grams) coconut sugar or granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Line a mini muffin pan with 24 muffin liners.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (coconut flour through salt).
  • In a separate medium bowl, mix together the wet ingredients (eggs through vanilla).
  • Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and stir just until combined.
  • Pour the batter evenly into the muffin liners, filling each liner until almost completely full. You'll likely have enough batter for another six donut holes.
  • Bake for 11-13 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. These need to rest for at least an hour before serving, both because of taste and texture.
  • When ready to serve, mix the cinnamon with the sugar in a small bowl. Roll the donut holes in the cinnamon sugar. As these donut holes are quite moist, the cinnamon sugar tends to liquify overnight, which is why it's recommended to roll the donuts in the sugar no more than 8 hours before serving.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

Notes For paleo, use coconut sugar and coconut oil. For dairy-free, use coconut oil. I told you I would find you a donut recipe.

Anything on the allergy testing you were going to look into for me?  I got my results back from them and so far they are right on for myself and my kids.  My kids will tell me they don't feel well after eating a few different things and sure enough, it's on their report.

I have some questions on the program you emailed me about 2 weeks ago. 1.You  told me to take sepia the homeopathic do you want me to take that while taking the other supplements u prescribed to me? or first take the sepia for a week then start the program? 2. I complained about my nerve pain and muscle spasms i didnt see anything on the program for that. bc i remember you mentioned selenium? 3. You put on the program mix Tangy powder with other thing in a blender, but I cant take the powder it makes me gettery. I have my blood results in the A1c came out normal but im still experiencing blood sugar issues which is what the program is you gave me.

Question : Hey Dr. G. – I faxed my bloodwork to your office over the weekend wondered if you had a chance to look at it?  Some concerns:  Creatinine .53 scale .60-1.40,     Alanine Aminotransferase 84 scale 5-46,   Aspartate Aminotransferase 44 scale 10-41, Ferritin 402 scale 11-307.  Local ND never tests the same so comparing is difficult.  Triglycerides 180 scale <149, Thyroid TSH is .18scale .45 – 4.50, Thyroxine T4 6.0 scale 4.5 – 12.5, T3 free Non Dialysis 4.3 scale 2.0 – 4.8. ND wants to lower armour meds I told her NO – she didn’t test T4 free – does it matter (do we need to talk, I sent you the results) Thanks Dr. G! Also if a person was to rub coconut oil on the skin could that cause weight gain?   Thanks!!

Question : Howdy Dr.G! I noticed that EFA Plus may have reformulated earlier this year. A month and a half or so I started taking the new formulation and have super bad diarhyrra first thing in the morning, I was taking 3-3 times daily and never had any issues. So I stopped taking them and I’m taking 200 billion probiotics at bed time and small amounts of probiotics daily but still not back to normal. Please advise.

Question : Hi Dr. Glidden, Here's an email from a client of mine & hopefully you can offer some some advice. Couple weeks ago I stepped on a chunk of hard asphalt on my driveway, hidden under leaves,  (city was redoing sewers on our street, and it tore up half my driveway).    Bruised bottom of footand it is still swollen,  and I have a fracture at the baseof my second toe, so It hurts…. Can only wear running shoes or slippers.     I might have to have the toe broken, straightened, whatever, because it was damaged from the past when I wore high heels with very pointy toes.

Question : Hello Dr. Glidden.  As I can no longer procure Youngevity products, what product line would you recommend outside of Youngevity.

Question : My daughter's throat is killing her when she starts to sing and sometimes even when she talks at a certain pitch.  This has been going on for about two months. She thought it was just a cold and tried to rid herself of the ailment with Vitamin C, Echinasea Tea and Throat Coat Tea.  She takes the On-the-Go Healthy Start Pak.

My arm is messed up. It started this summer when I did extensive shoveling.  I switched to the Healthy Bone & Joint Start Pak but it is not improving like it should.  I didn't realize how bad it was until our family went bowling during my Thanksgiving visit. When I picked up the bowling ball, a 9 lb ball, I realized how bad my issues were.  I tried it one time with my right arm and it hurt really bad.  So I bowled with my left arm!  My gutter balls were amazing!  However, the arm issue is not!  What do I need to do? What would make my upper arms, inside and outside, as well as the outside of my upper thighs be sore to the touch? When I massage them I can't believe how sore they are.  What in the world is causing this?

Question : I have a lady who's 26 year old daughter who has congenital TTP.....what is recommended?

Question : I mentioned last month that I am celiac and in return, you gave me a regimen to follow through Youngevity.  What is the expected outcome of this treatment?  You recommend living gluten-free, but is the regimen supposed to make it so I no longer react to gluten or just to help heal my system?

Question : Hello Dr. Glidden, 65 yr. old Male with Myasthenia Gravis: Hands & arms very weak, blurred vision w/ drooping eyelids.

Question : Have you considered adding the use of alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) and low dose Naltrexone (LDN) to the alternative treatments for cancer (pancreatic, liver, etc.)?  ALA/LDN has shown by Dr. Burt Berkson to be effective in many type of cancer as well as autoimmune issues (diabetic neuropathy, MS, etc.).  Numerous presentations and testimonials on YT support this as an effective treatment modality. This treatment has been around for a decade but has been rejected by mainstream medicine due to the low cost, etc.  Therefore it qualifies for use for those thinking outside the medical box.

Question : Dr. G. if you have time - why can't we just eat beets?  Or I should ask "would eating beets help or only juicing"? ty

Question : Hello Dr G, When massaging the abdomen along the colon to facilitate evacuation, the abdominal area to the far right of the belly button at times produces a sloshing sound, especially after consuming 2-3 glasses of water.  Is this normal? Why is drinking the juice better than having the pulp along with the juice?
