There are 2 basic forms of depression, exogenous and endogenous. Exogenous depression is cause by an external event–death, divorce, bankruptcy, etc. The depression is temporary and mollified by time and changes in circumstances. Endogenous depression is due to an inability to manufacture natural brain chemicals called “neurotransmitters”. A good analogy for this type depression is […]

Hydrochloric acid is one of the most important chemicals your body produces. Yet, we were never taught its importance in medical school. That’s because the curriculum of medical schools is controlled by drug dealers. Normally, cells that line your stomach produce enough hydrochloric acid to make the pH of the stomach 3 million times the […]

Most people never know they have viruses like Zika, polio, flu viruses, West Nile, or the universally fatal JC virus that is currently present in your brain (Don’t worry about it unless you’re taking Enbrel, Remicade or some other drug to treat an autoimmune condition).

Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

NAFLD is the acronym for “nonalcoholic fatty liver disease”. Under the microscope and on blood work, it looks exactly the same as the type of liver disease seen in alcoholics. It looks exactly the same because it is exactly the same. The only difference is the source of the alcohol. As thyroid and hydrochloric acid […]

It will start to happen late 20’s – early 30’s. Yours truly included. You’ll start getting thick around the middle. It was such a gradual change that I took little notice. That was, until I went for a physical. I had developed high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. I was only 35. That same […]

Those of you my age will increasingly be offered vaccines as you go for doctor visits. Again, since we outsource most of our manufacturing jobs to cheap third world labor markets (just randomly pick up stuff in your home and look at the “Made in…” label), our economy is now based mostly on the food […]

Do I Have an Ulcer?

QUESTION: How do I know if I have an ulcer? DR. FITT: Peptic ulcers are basically like a skinned knee in your gut. Part of the lining has been “skinned”.

On a good day, you are outnumbered by several trillion. There are more critters that live in and on us than dollars in the deficit. You have mechanisms in place to keep these critters from overgrowing. One mechanism is body temperature. This is similar to food on the buffet line. That food has critters. The number […]

When I mention Intelligent Design, I’m not asking you to believe that there is an automotive plant in Leipzig, Germany that assembles a carbon reinforced plastic Life Module, combines it with an aluminum drive module and adds an electrically turbo charged three cylinder engine that does 0-60 in 4.2 seconds while getting 40 miles/gallon. I’m […]
