Phone Consultations and Teleseminars- (New 4-2008) Due to an overwhelming number of Emails, I am now offering phone consultations and
will be conducting teleseminars in the near future. Please be watching this section of the Website for details concerning the latter, including times and fees.
*Sudden Infant Death Syndrome- Another "Perfect Storm"? - This is an Email that I sent to an MD who contacted me about my "theories" on serotonin and seasonal
illness. She pointed out that SIDS occurs most frequently in the winter and wondered whether I had done any extra reading
about sudden death syndrome, the cause for which is still considered unknown. My response covers the seasonal aspects
of neurological disease as well as other key points in the development of tragic conditions like SIDS, autism, epilepsy,
*Swine Flu Pandemic- A Typical Violation
of Mosaic Law - (4-30-09)Yes, here we are faced with another global
threat of influenza. But it is not just another flu but rather the perfect example of reaping what we sow. If we
had listened to Moses, we would not be in this mess.
*Fever Reducers- Medical Mischief- This piece was inspired by the rapidly spreading Swine Flu virus and the awareness that mist victims will
reach for a fever reducer (NSAID) at the first sign of illness. Hopefully this article will make them think twice.
* The Origin of Disease in Man and Animals- The Primer- The following is an Email I sent to someone who wrote to me asking me for some advice about their career
choice and curriculum. They were interested in chosing courses that would help complete their understanding of epilepsy
and chronic illness. This gave me an opportunity to start this section with a primer on the subject of why we become
ill, which is critical to our understanding of how to best deal with what we call "disease".
* How to Start Treating Just About Anything- This is one of the newest area of DogtorJ.com and is a spin-off of the other sections, especially the epilepsy
and cancer sections. After studying food intolerance for ten years and relating it to allergies, IBS, fibromyalgia, epilepsy,
autism, "autoimmune" diseases, cancer and everything else you see on the site, it became clear that the approach to resolving
these important issues was exactly the same: 1) Stop doing to ourselves what we have been doing for years and years;
2) Feed our bodies what they need to operate properly, and 3) Focus on doing what it takes to make our immune
systems as healthy as possible. Throw in proper exercise, adequate sunshine, and much-needed sleep and watch
what these miraculous bodies of ours are capabable of doing.
* L-form Bacteria and Mollicutes- The Good, the "Bad" and the Ugly- I know, many who read this title are going "What in the world? This is going to be waaay too technical
for me and I don't really need to understand something so involved." Well, that may be true for those who get the old deer-in-the-headlights
look when they hear or read something medical, like I do when I talk with an attorney or insurance salesman. But if you liked
the part about viruses, then you're really going to like this part, too. These are all part of the grand orchestra that is
our- and our pet's- body.
* Hot Flashes- A Sign of the Times - This is a little Email paper I wrote in response to repeated questions about the role of hot flashes
in menopause. Like everything our body does, hot flashes serve an important purpose.
* BlogtorJ- Yes, in keeping with the current trends, I have decided to set up a blog. I had to once I came up with
the name. Unfortunately, I got tied up writing the book and creating the new Website and have totally neglected the Blog.
I am going to have a new site for the blog but, in the meantime, I will try to be more attentive to this one.
* Recommended Products- This page will contain nutrition-related products that I recommend for pets and their people*. These items will
be restricted to those that I have used personally or in my own veterinary practice. I may also include a few products about
which I have received outstanding testimonials from Internet clients but I will label them as such. (* As a veterinarian,
I cannot formally recommend or prescribe products for humans but I can tell you about those that I have successfully employed
in my own recovery.)
*Autism- This is the newest section of Dogtorj.net and was created in late September of 2007. I have had
a few small areas on the site dealing with this complex and all-too-common condition but have decided it was high time I
dedicated an entire section to it. As time allows, I will be trying to create an area complete with
current research, dietary recommendations and testimonials. In the meantime, I will start with collecting the things I have
in other areas of Dogtorj.net as well as a few recent articles and forum posts that I have done.
* Casomorphins and Gliadomorphins- The Food Opioids- The following is an Email that I sent to the Friends of DogtorJ concerning these critically
important derivatives from dairy and wheat. You will be shocked to see the role they play in our every day lives. And yet,
most have never heard the terms.
* The Truth About the Ingredients in Pet Food- This article is something I just put together after a week of discussing this subject matter with clients. Their
reactions compelled me to put it all in writing. I hope this helps and motivates change. Please feel free to forward this
to anyone who has pets. It can be the difference between a pet living to be 5 or 25.
* A Graves* Situation- This is an Email that I sent to the Friends of DogtorJ on 8-16-07 after
reading an article on Yahoo Health concerning common household chemicals and their possible role in the development of hyperthyroidism
(*Graves Disease) in the cat. My response covers many of the areas of medicine that I have
been studying over the past 7 years that are related to immune-mediated diseases and cancer. The news article served as a
great spring-board into these topics.
* "We Have Met the Enemy...and He Is US."- This is the first blog placed on BlogtorJ.com on 6-24-07 and covers the gammut of topics that are discussed on this Website.
The bottom line? We DO have our health destinies in our own hands.
*Twinkies- The "Magikal" Snack- This is an Email that I sent to the Friends of Dogtorj on 6-26-07 when the absurdity of taking symptomatic medications
came up in an Internet discussion (e.g. taking fever reducers for viral infections). All you need to know is that the
Greek root of the the word "pharmacy" is pharmakeia, which means....magic. Uh oh.
* Spring Fever, Serotonin, Suicides and School Shootings- This is a letter that I sent to my "Friends of DogtorJ" on 4-17-07 after I made a post on a medical Website. The
author of this blog was discussing the "merry month of May" and the poorly understood phenomenon of increased suicides
during that spring month. It is a lot more understandable than one would think at first glance.
* Fatty Liver Syndrome- Killing Two Birds with One Grain- This is an Email that I sent to the Friends of DogtorJ after I read a Yahoo health alert that "discussed"
fatty liver syndrome. Actually the article left more questions unanswered than it answered, sooo.... This Email was
also later edited by Ron Hoggan, a champion in celiac circles, and published in the newsletter of www.celiac.com, an awesome Website for anyone afflicted with or exploring the
possibilities of gluten intolerance.
* Food Intolerance, Epilepsy, and "The G.A.R.D."- This is the transcript for my lecture at the 2007 NAVC (North American Veterinary Conference) in Orlando.
It was the second hour that followed a talk on food intolerance in general. This speech on epilepsy briefly covers most aspects
of the "syndrome" we call epilepsy and introduces the role of viruses in the development and perpetuation of idiopathic epilepsy.
*Obesity- Obesity is a complex condition but one that can be understood once we see a few very important
scientific facts and dispel some very common myths. I will try to cover both in this section, including the role of viruses
in obesity and the misconception that Dr. Atkins disproved (again): That eating fat causes us to become fat.
*Frequently Asked Questions- On this page you will find a list
of questions that have been asked many times in Emails or the exam room "lectures" of Dogtor J. It
is a work in progress and I will be updating it regularly. Feel free to suggest questions that should be covered in this section.
I hope you enjoyed your time here and got something important from your stay. It is
my goal to help all of mankind navigate through the jungle of medical information now available on the Internet and find the
truth about the origins of what we call "disease" as well as discover the natural solutions for these conditions.
We do have our health's destiny in our own hands more than we've ever
imagined, certainly more than most have ever been told. Think naturally and the answer will come.

You can now go to the new site!
The New DogtorJ.com is done! Yes, the time has finally come for this homemade Website to go the way of the
buffalo. I know that you all join me in looking forward to using a site that is better organized and more accessible....prettier,
too! I've even corrected most of those annoying typos (I hope).
Feel free to check it out now at www.dogtorj.com. I am still working hard to populate all of the pages so don't worry if a link does not work. They should
all be active in the near future. In the meantime,
this current site will remain on-line until I get all of the bugs worked out.
Let me know what you think! It's not too late to make some changes.
I would still like to hear
from you personally, though.
I used to have a nice little form in this space that would
allow readers to send me a quick comment or testimonial. Unfortunately, as the Interent goes, I started getting
50-100 junk emails through this form and had to remove it.
So, until the new Website is up and running (soon!), I will have
to ask people to formulate an Email of their own and send it. I do want to hear from you so I would really appreciate
it if you could take the time to do this.
Simply title your Email "Visitor Comment" and include your name, occupation, comment/testimonial and
return Email address (if you want to be contacted) and send it to:
dogtorj @ dogtorj.com (Just remove the spaces on each side of the @ sign)
Please do not use this form to ask medical questions. See
the Contact section for instructions for sending DogtorJ an Email inquiry concerning a medical
be getting a major facelift in the very near future. Yes, the time has finally come for this homemade Website
to be taken over by someone who actually knows what they are doing. I know that you all join me in looking forward to having
the site better organized and more accessible. It'll be prettier, too!
This is taking place for a number of reasons, the most of important
of which will be revealed in the upcoming months. Yes, the book is finally in the works but there will be a
major awareness project to go along with it.
So, please stay tuned. Anyone who would like to get on my mailing list can do so by simply using the visitor's comment area (like the one above)
found at the bottom of each page.
Onward and upward!
