As a nutritionist (Ph.D. in nutrition science) and a naturopath (former president of the California State Naturopathic Medical Association and author of the book Combining Old and New: Naturopathy for the 21st Century), I realize that it is vital for nutrients to be absorbed at the cellular level and for toxins to be expelled by the body in order to optimize health.

  • General bloodflow
  • The body's nutrient and oxygen supply and waste disposal
  • Cardiac function
  • Physical fitness, endurance, strength, and energy
  • Concentration, mental acuity, stress reduction, and relaxation
  • Sleep management
  • Only good, functional circulation ensures proper supply of nutrients and oxygen as well as proper waste disposal.

  • This is fundamental to all metabolic processes. On this basis, it is clear what a critical role the circulatory system plays in overall health and well being.

    Proper supply of oxygen and nutrients and disposal of waste products equals a healthy body. Consider that
    the point of nutrition is to get nutrients to cells, and according to naturopathic pioneers, poor health results when the body is not properly expelling toxins.

    Autism/Down's/Epilepsy Links

    Autism Links and Down Syndrome Information is available from the Warner House.
    Down Syndrome-Epilepsy Foundation provides clinical and other research of interest to those associated with persons with Down syndrome who also have experienced seizures. is mainly the results of an adopted mother of a Down's child, Dixie Lawrence-Tafoya. Dr. Leichtman is associated with this site. Like Dr. Warner once did, he sees Down's patients using nutrition.
    Upside of Down's is a site maintained by parents of a Down's child. It has many links to a variety of researchers and associations involved with Down Syndrome (including those that do not endorse nutrition).
