Quotes for Your Life

"Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom."

George S. Patton

"I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake."

George Bernard Shaw

"I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent plant. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time."

Jack London

"Life is an exciting business, and most exciting when it is lived for others."

Helen Keller

"You have to stop in order to change direction."

Erich Fromm

Pat - 48 Years Old - Takes Action and Wins Big Time

Dr. Z - Your website is great.

I'm a 48 year old female who started feeling bad over the last few years. My energy seemed to be fading, I was gaining weight, I had many headaches, stomach problems, PMS and thought I was hypoglycemic (mood swings and feeling faint if I didn't eat in a few hours). So I went to my Dr. for a physical. The only thing she could tell me was that I had a vitamin D defiency and to take Vitamin D supplements. She wanted to give me a pill for each of my other symptoms but I declined. I wanted to why I was feeling bad; I didn't want to take a pill to hide my symptoms.

After doing research on the internet I found that most of my problems may be from a Candida yeast infection. I did the online test and scored very high. Finally I had a possible reason for my symptoms.

After many searches for Candida I ended up on Dr. Z's website. I took the on-line Self Evaluation and Dr. Z sent me comprehensive results and a plan for feeling better. I was very hesitant because of the cost and the very strict diet. I was used to eating many carbs and sweets and foods that I may be allergic to. A few months prior I had already given up all fake sugar (equal, sweet-n-low, splenda).

I decided to give Dr. Z a try and I'm really glad I did. I ordered his Candida kit and a few more supplements and began his eating plan. I'm not going to lie -- the diet was really hard. But every week it got easier for me.

Five weeks later I'm 15 lbs lighter, no more blood sugar problems, no digestion problems, headaches are better, and my energy has returned. A big plus is that I'm sleeping much better (used to wake up during the night).

I just ordered the Personal Portable Oxygen Bar and can't wait to receive it. Dr. Z has been a blessing to me and I would definitely recommend his website.

Thank you Dr. Z

Dr. Z's comments - There is HOPE - Fix your BRAIN first

Great letter from an online client.

Why brain first?

  • Your brain is made up of more than 100 billion neurons, more neurons than stars in the Milky Way.
  • Your brain weighs 2% your total body weight, but consumes 20% of the oxygen you breathe.
  • Your brain controls all aspects of the human experience. There's not one exception.

Your brain controls your thoughts, your moods, your memory, your vision, your hearing, your taste, your movements, your pain perception, your blood pressure, your digestive function, your breathing rate, etc.

However, for optimal function your brain requires

  • adequate oxygen in the air you breathe
  • good lung function, good breathing
  • balanced blood sugar from good diet and good digestive function
  • and stimulation, input, activation - primarily from movement/exercise.


In my ongoing Brain Health Secrets Teleseminar Series I teach you what YOU can do NOW to optimize the functioning of your brain. Here are the seven things that are detrimental to your health, especially your brain health:

  1. Polluted air, less oxygen in the air, living at high altitude
  2. Shallow breathing, smoking tobacco, smoking pot, lung disease
  3. Junk food, high sugar consumption, diets high in carbohydrates, artif. sweeteners, alcohol, food dyes, processed foods, polluted water, recreational drugs, medications
  4. Indigestion, use of antibiotics destroys normal bowel flora, pharmaceutical drugs such as antacids and acid blockers interfere with protein digestion
  5. Heart disease, blocked arteries and veins
  6. Increasingly sedentary lifestyles for children and grown-ups alike
  7. Increasingly toxic environment, chemical pollution, plastics, man made clothing, esp. polyester, electromagnetic fields from cell phones, TVs, computers, microwave ovens, heating blankets, etc.

Here is what Pat decided to do:

She took full responsibility for her health and well-being. She decided to take action in all seven areas.

  • In order for your health to change - YOU must make intelligent and consistent changes.
  • These changes are SIMPLE, but not EASY.
  • The word doctor actually means teacher/coach.
  • It is my job to teach/coach you what these changes are and how to make them.
  • It is your job to hire me as your coach, when you cannot decide which way to turn or what to do.
  • Once you hire me, it is your job to listen to me, to put to the test what I teach you
  • That is the only way this will become your own truth.

Your First Step towards a Healthier Life

Nothing can replace a face to face evaluation.

  • If you happen to live relatively close to our office, I strongly suggest that you call call 530-265-0224 and make an appointment with my lovely wife Victoria.
  • We are located in Nevada City, California. This is approximately 1.5 hours by car from Sacramento, California towards Reno/Lake Tahoe in the beautiful foothillls of the Sierra Nevada.

If you cannot come personally - - - -

Our on-line Self Evaluation is geared towards giving you a basic starting point in order to make some intelligent changes in diet and improve some basic human functions such as digestion, blood sugar control.

If you have ever taken antibiotics, yesterday or 30 years ago - the chances are high that you may suffer the consequences of bowel flora imbalance and candida overgrowth.

  • It is my clinical experience that this approach is always useful.
  • This does not mean that it will or can solve all your problems.

However, the majority of my local and on-line clients experience dramatic improvements in their health, when they address
