Sorry Italian and Mexican food fans. A, B and to a lesser degree, AB blood types do not do well on tomatoes 😦 For the 44% of you that are O’s, you have a better chance of tolerating the fun red food. I know we have seen the press that lycopenes are good for the prostate, etc. But the damage out weighs the benefit in most cases. The lectins (immune trigger) in tomatoes can cause insulin dumping which can lead to hypoglycemia and then diabetes. They can cause ACh (acetylcholine) to decrease, thus memory problems and liver stress, occasionally leading to increases in cholesterol and often leading to increases in blood pressure. In this case, it is usually better to just say no… Thank you. Blessing to you and your health.

Friend or Foe?

The Connection Between Memory and Blood Pressure

Another perfect example of the fine balance of health. When the brain chemical acetylcholine is low one might have memory and recall problems. It also causes low nitric oxide and thus high blood pressure. When acetylcholine (Ach) is high, one might experience anxiety and panic attacks. Ah, the fine walk of homeostasis (balance). The good news is there are very effective natural therapies for both.


“A Future Without Dialysis”

Dr. Vrzal,

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your council, insight and medical knowledge.

I was diagnosed with Stage 3 renal disease 5 years ago… In February 2011, I was told that my kidneys were failing at an alarming rate and that my illness had progressed to Stage 5 renal failure. The kidney specialist predicted it would be necessary to start dialysis within weeks.  My illness had progressed to critical levels so the doctor recommended an arteriovenous fistula. With great despair, my family and I prepared ourselves for a future of dialysis and medical clinics.

My daughter-in-law suggested I schedule an appointment with you. Her exact words were, “I spoke to Dr. V about your kidney disease and he said that he could help you.” Skeptical of holistic medicine and its authenticity, I scheduled a consultation. Upon meeting you my doubts were soon laid to rest. I truly felt comfortable and believed you were genuinely concerned for my well-being. Your genuine demeanor, enthusiasm, and encouragement soon gave me hope for a future without dialysis. Within a few visits, you reduced the kidney disease, … My quality of life has greatly improved, and I no longer feel the side effects of the medications I had been taking for a decade. In fact, my renal disease has been stable for months and my kidney levels have actually improved to a non-critical,  safe and solid Stage 3. With your continued help and natural remedies, I plan to live a balanced and healthy life.

Again, I truly appreciate your honesty, compassion and medical advice. You have improved my overall health, the quality of my life and the life of those I love.
