One thing I do not understand is why Dr. Hotze mentions in his book coconut oil is one of the bad oils, however in his vitamin business, Physician's Preference, they do sell Tropical Traditions coconut oil. I think he should have included more on this topic in the book. Rather than simply saying coconut oil is bad, he could have said that coconut oil processed a certain way is bad, and that coconut oil processed a certain way is good (... just like expeller pressed olive oil is good, and heated and chemically processed olive oil is bad, as mentioned in the book "Beyond Pritkin" by Ann Louise Gittleman.), and Tropical Traditions virgin and expeller-pressed coconut oil is superior ... one reason being it is an excellent source of capryllic acid, which kills candida albicans (yeast). On this topic of coconut oil, I suggest reading the books "Virgin Coconut Oil" by Brian Shilhavy and Marianita Jader Shilhavy, and "The Coconut Diet" by Cherie Calbom and John Calbom. Both of these books explain that this particular kind of coconut oil can also help balance hormones, improve thyroid function, and kill overpopulations of candida albicans (yeast). The Shilavy's book is even for sale at Physician's Preference.
Another important topic that should have been mentioned in Dr. Hotze's book is goitrogens, foods that inhibit thyroid function.
It's nice to get lots of relief of symptoms quick from Dr. Hotze's regimen of replenishing depleted hormones with compounded biologically identical hormones, however I am very interested in going one step further and finding out how I can cause my body to become more balanced so I do not have to, for instance, buy expensive biologically identical hormones for the rest of my life ... or at least eventually be able to lower my doses. (At my first appointment at the Hotze Health and Wellness center, I spent over $4000.00, which included the highest level of service, prescriptions for biologically identical hormones and yeast killers, vitamins, and allergy drops.) Two books that offer information about cleansing and detoxing are Don Colbert, M.D.'s "Toxic Relief" and Valerie Saxion, N.D.'s "How to Feel Great All the Time". Both books explain the importance of fasting and cleanses, including liver cleansing. I did see Valerie Saxion on television last year say if you clean the liver it will function better, and when the liver is clean the thyroid will function better. This is exactly the kind of practical information I am interested in. In Dr. Colbert's book I was very happy to read about intestinal repair by taking supplements, because in the past my candida albicans (yeast) overgrowth was so bad that it made holes in my gut, then food protein went directly into my bloodstream which resulted in many allergies. In the 1980s I was tested allergic to 70% of foods, then after eliminating or eating them less often through the years, then applying what I learned from Dr. Colbert's book, and also learning from the book "The Miracle of MSM" by Stanley W. Jacob, M.D., Ronald M. Lawrence, M.D., Ph.D., and Martin Zucker that taking MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) can help reduce allergy symptoms ... by the time I was tested again for allergies at the Hotze Health and Wellness Center two years ago, I was found to be allergic to only three foods ... foods that I had been consuming on a regular basis.
I highly recommend reading Dr. Hotze's book, and I highly recommend reading all of the other books I mention in this review; they are all very informative. In the months to come, I also look forward to the release of exercise physiologist Teresa Tapp's book because information she already offers on her website and recorded seminars and workouts is excellent; her copyrighted exercise moves increase lymphatic flow, and they as well as a special cold processed alfalfa she sells help balance hormones.
I have had doctors over the years misdiagnose me, because all they could ever see was the lab results. As far as the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists go, they need to stop being so lab value bond. They need to educate themselves on what really does and doesn't work. I started on synthetic thyroid, it did absolutely nothing for me. Once I switched to Armour Thyroid (natural dessicated thyroid) I immediately started to feel better.
What is the purpose of doctors having patients fill out long & tedious questionaires about there health and history, if all they are going to really look at is the lab results.
Of course, if so many problems can really be solved with these natural solutions, big PHARMA would suffer financially. Everything gets down to job security. Keep people sick and you keep them coming back, time and time again. I personally think that there are enough people with medical problems that BHRT (bio-identical replacement therapy) would not fix, to keep all the doctors and hospitals and big pharma from going belly up.
