  • Carole Baggerly Posted August 1, 2009

    Carole Baggerly is the founder and director of Grassroots Health, a non-profit organization promoting vitamin D awareness. After her own experience with breast cancer and osteoporosis, she learned the connection among these diseases and vitamin D deficiency, which triggered her role as an advocate. Carole shares with us her inspired work at Grassroots Health which has launched a worldwide public health campaign to solve the vitamin D deficiency epidemic in a year through a focus on testing and education with all individuals spreading the word. Carole invites everyone to join in this campaign! She empowers us to join D*action and test two times per year during a 5 year program to demonstrate the public health impact of this nutrient. Carole leaves us with an invitation to follow the unfolding science behind why vitamin D supplementation is critical to our health and the upcoming symposium on vitamin D April 9, 2010 in San Diego for everyone who seeks to study the science behind vitamin D and make wise choices for their health.

  • Derrick Lonsdale, M.D. Posted August 1, 2009

    Derrick Lonsdale, M.D. joined the Preventive Medicine Group in Cleveland in 1982. He joins us as part of our Natural Health Science Maverick series which focuses on practitioners who have been innovators in their respective fields. Dr. Lonsdale has developed an unusual knowledge of the role of biochemistry in most, if not all, diseases. This, in turn, led to his better understanding the role of bad nutrition and its adverse effects on the biochemistry of the body. It became clear to him that the symptoms reported by the patient could be related to the underlying biochemical cause. In most instances this was caused by lifestyle and poor diet. It is the abnormal body chemistry that must be corrected and that can only be done by dietary changes. Unfortunately, the nature of our diet today makes it unlikely that we take in enough vitamins and minerals through food thus nutritional supplements become necessary. Dr. Lonsdale shares with us that he has written more than 100 papers in the medical literature, most of which deal with various aspects of therapeutic nutritional supplementation. He also wrote WHY I LEFT ORTHODOX MEDICINE describing his experiences in clinical research that led to his recognition of the fact that doctors do not heal, the body heals itself.
