Introducing the Four Herbal Powders I Use the Most By Tom Cowan, M.D.The process of turning herbs into medicine involves great care and attention to detail.   Herbs generally have two main types of active ingredients, which are the chemicals synthesized by the plants that make them effective medicines.  These active ingredients either dissolve in water (hydrophilic) or in fat or alcohol (hydrophobic).  Plant medicines tend to be the most effective when one can use the entire spectrum of water- and fat-soluble components together in the same delivery system.  The company...

'I Have EnergyAnd Feel Happier'  By Tom Cowan, M.D.Our one-month trial of the crystal therapy is coming to an end, and I wanted to share with you the interesting feedback I have received. About 50 people participated in the trial, and about half shared their feedback. (As a reminder, the therapy consists of an iridium crystal whose energy is focused by certain geometric patterns and brass discs. The discs are placed over the heart and solar plexus, one at a time.) The official name for this therapy is Solid State Technology...

They're Powerful AgentsFor Healing Blood Disorders By Tom Cowan, M.D.When Goethe, the true founder of Anthroposphy and considered by many to be the greatest European philosopher, urged us to learn to “read the book of nature.” He was not just giving impractical, philosophical advice.   Rather, he was admonishing us to learn to think in a new way, a way he saw as crucial to our survival as an evolving species. But what does this new way of thinking entail, and how are we to learn it?One aspect of this new...

Melatonin Is Probably Our Most Important Antioxidant   The less melatonin we produce, the more we decline By Tom Cowan, M.D.Recently, two articles caught my attention.  The first, in the February/March edition of the Townsend Letter, was written by the well-known alternative medicine doctor Frank Shallenberger, M.D.  In the article, he presented a summary of voluminous research to support his claim that melatonin supplementation can:  Protect against viral and bacterial infections Prevent cardiovascular disease and support normal blood pressure Reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, which may slow the aging process...

It's Based on the Idea That We Are Not Just Chemicals   We're Offering Free Sessions at Our Office By Tom Cowan, M.D.I was introduced to the principles of solid-state technology a few months ago.  The theory behind it is simple and profound, yet to our modern minds, it is perplexing.  The basic idea is that we are not merely physical, chemical beings; rather, as I have repeatedly pointed out, fundamentally, we are energetic beings.  What that means, exactly, is difficult to pinpoint.   I explore this topic in depth in...

It's possible to restructure intercellular water into a gel state There's Hope for CellsDamaged by Glyphosate By Tom Cowan, M.D.Since writing the book Human Heart, Cosmic Heart, I have been talking about the crucial importance of structured water to all life forms.  In Vaccines, Autoimmunity and the Changing Nature of Childhood Illness, I presented the idea that all of the water inside our cells is highly structured, and that this cytoplasmic structured water should be properly seen as the defining, controlling influence in the life of the cell and in the life of the entire organism.  What...

All Metabolic ProcessesIn Our Cells Depend On It It's now available as a supplement, rather than an IV medicine By Tom Cowan, M.D.NADH (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide hydride) is perhaps the most promising natural supplement available today. The biological form of hydrogen in our bodies, NADH reacts with the oxygen we obtain through breathing to generate the ATP that powers our cells.  The other byproduct of the reactions between NADH and oxygen in our cells is the generation of water.  The water generated through the interaction of NADH and oxygen is...

Why Scientists Are Sounding the Alarm Dear friends,It's not often that I come across an article that I think is truly groundbreaking or even earth-shattering, but this article from Dr. Gabriel Cousens fits those descriptions.  Rather than my trying to summarize his article, I ask that everyone read it in its entirety.This issue he addresses is huge for all of us, one that needs our attention and help.  At the end, he offers very specific interventions that we can undertake.Please read this article, and I welcome any feedback. With warmest...

These Stalwarts Not Only KillPathogens, They AlsoSupport Immune Function       By Tom Cowan, M.D.As we are in the midst of the annual cold and flu season, I want to share the basic plan I use to support my patients during this time. It includes three supplements I use for people of all ages when they feel an acute illness coming on.  First, it is important to remember that even though it is common to blame all acute illnesses on microbes, fundamentally, viruses and bacteria are scavengers in nature.  Bacteria digest debris in...
