“What kind of doctor are you?” is a question I’m often asked.  A frequent reply is that I do for humans what a mechanic does for cars. If there’s a red light on the dash, (humans call it a symptom) I put you up on the rack and hook you up to the analyzer to see […]

Diabetes should be classified similar to how we classify burns. Burns are classified as first, second or third degree depending on the level of penetration of the damage.

Stomach production of hydrochloric acid (HCl) is a big deal. HCl breaks down proteins in your food into individual amino acids–the building blocks of proteins. If HCl production is inadequate, protein digestion may be incomplete. Absorption of undigested proteins into the bloodstream can cause the immune system to react. These reactions are often mistaken for […]

Sooooooo, your rheumatologist does not know what causes rheumatoid arthritis (R. A.), your dermatologist does not know what causes eczema/psoriasis, your endocrinologist does not know what causes diabetes and your internist/family doctor does not know what causes high blood pressure. Is it just me or does that situation seem bizarre? Do you take your car […]

One opportunity in the Ebola hysteria is to learn the basics about how the immune system works. There are two basic components of the immune system–humoral immunity and cellular immunity. An excellent analogy is “weapons of mass destruction” vs “Boots on the ground”. When our military goes on the attack, ISIS or the Taliban, for […]

Ok. I’m going to make understanding diabetes so simple that Brian Shane Bytheway and Bobby Robert can understand it. They’re all I have left of Jodi. I know, it’s like being left with Ringo and Tito. Anyway, like this Corvette, your body has to create energy in order to go 0-60 in 2.95 seconds. It uses the same basic […]

This used to be the way I practiced medicine. No secret I’m an adrenalin junkie. Back then, car wrecks, shootings, stabbings, and “heart attacks”, made my day. I was like a duck in water when soaked in blood. Two things dampened my enthusiasm to the point of a career change that took me from $200,000/year […]

My brother Benny Mitchell will tell you that since I was a kid, I’ve always been interested in digging into to things to find out how things worked.

Occupational asthma can be caused by chemical or particulate inhalation. However, most asthma is due to the immune system response to Candida overgrowth in the lungs (Imagine diaper rash in the lungs. Don’t imagine a vaginal yeast infection in the lungs😜). One of the cytokines produced by the immune cells is “leukotriene”. This cytokine causes […]
