Partisan Politics on a Larger Scale

As a physician, I am endlessly intrigued by the processes of adaptation that has led to our being on this earth; and I am amazed that these processes show up so dramatically in our differing politics. So for those wishing to think a bit deeper than sound-bites, here’s my two cent’s worth. Bacteria are the […]

Models, Medicine, and Our Future.

If you read anything about general science in your spare time, you know that physicists are presenting a variety of models as they try to explain our world in terms of the quantum reality that is the ground of our existence, and it’s not easy. Most of their models are mathematical and based on a […]

Coping with Autism

The first researchers looking into autism decided it was caused by “the refrigerator Mom”. Mothers were cold and withdrawn and didn’t give their children the love and care they needed to develop properly. The outrage of loving and caring mothers put that to rest in short order and we have gone on to look at […]

Alternative Treatment for C. Diff Infections

Arizona and the rest of the nation is now plagued with the gut infecting bacteria Clostridium difficile, which most know as C. diff.

Medical Uses of Xylitol for Professionals

Introduction In writing this I can think of no better alternative then to follow the path I followed as I searched for why the spray I helped develop worked so well. That path is both chronological and topical, but it actually began long before we developed the spray when my wife, Jerry Bozeman, recognized that […]

Coping with the Cold Season

One of our primary goals at Common Sense Medicine is to teach the value of our defenses and to explain that the bothersome symptoms they sometimes produce should not be ‘balanced’ with drugs to bring the body back into balance and therefore more healthy. That is an old and outdated definition of health, but it persists. Hobbling the defense […]

Coping with Antibiotic Resistance

Claude Bernard is reported as saying the he could eat Pasteur’s anthrax with impunity. Not many today have his nerve; we have gone down Pasteur’s pathway where the fearful germs are the focus, and all our efforts are aimed at destroying them. Following that path has led to much success, but also to a lot […]

*Insurance is designed to pay for the unexpected crisis. Health insurance started that way in the U.S. but gradually, because the companies we work for were paying for it and getting a better tax break, it morphed into paying for it all. That means we have less interest in getting the ounce of prevention than if we were paying for some of those costs. Children we talk to about the dangers of drugs just say they’ll get a brain transplant if they burn theirs out. That’s why we think that Health Savings Accounts should be promoted by the government more; they put the individual back in a position of responsibility in making more choices in their health care. With Health Savings Accounts an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
