She has treated and cured cancer, heart disease, thyroid dysfunction, and autoimmune diseases. She is not allowed to say this, so I did.
FROM A READER FRIEND WHO HAS A HUGE SOCIAL MEDIA REACH:
Wow. What a comprehensive newsletter. You are the bomb. I love how you provide a synopsis of the most important topics at the end. I love your humility in admitting where you have been wrong.
I read that you are starting the keto diet. As you know, I’ve been on keto for many years. One thing that has concerned me about it is the elevation in my lipids. I always was 160 total cholesterol. On keto, it’s gone up to 230. But the ratio, which was always excellent is even better now. Still, I wonder if my leaky gut makes me absorb and not fully process all the fats, hence why my cholesterol is elevated. And, lately, I’ve been seeing nodules on the backs of my arms and I’ve wondered if my liver is having difficulty.
Dr. Axe recommends keto cycling in which you introduce higher carbs a couple times a week.
From what I understand, constant keto can lower thyroid function, which I now have.
Just now I came across this piece of research that does correlate keto diet with hyperlipidemia and fatty liver disease: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7008768/#:~:text=The%20ketogenic%20diet%20is%20a,onset%20of%20fatty%20liver%20disease.
How are you feeling? The Parkinson’s?
I love it when you say that she can’t say SO you will. Great. Tell me please -- how big could this kind of work around get? I think Pres 45 should do an apprentice revival to find his spokesman even though no one can really get to the same place and drive the swamp crazy. Btw -- Parkinson’s and a host of other conditions treatable w B1 protocols perhaps! Just gave my uncle Daphne Bryan’s book and recommended Elliot Overton’s website. Splendid to hear of your work with this gifted healer and Dr Yoho -- I look forward to your new adventures in healing too.
Great interview. Some great information. Tamara very obviously has a huge amount of experience healing others and showing people how to approach healthcare so they can learn to look after themselves and their families
I’m saving this for when I have time to listen. I’m a fan of naturopaths after all the revelations about the medical profession since Covid. In one sentence, I only go to an MD in an emergency.
I had absolutely wonderful gyn and neurologist who have retired (young) because they were single practitioner practices and it was too much after Obamacare. Both were very out of the box thinkers, very interested In naturopathic medicine as well as conventional.
Using my naturopathic doctor; low carb (but not as low as keto); not eating wheat, corn, or soy (I have celiac, and did an elimination diet which showed very big reactions to corn and soy); and doing intermittent fasting/time restricted eating has improved my health tremendously over the past 6 months.
My naturopath did a lot of tests - full blood, stool, DUTCH. She spent hours reading and comparing, which led to holistic conclusions versus a “conclusion” per line item. We try things, see how they work, adjust, change... she’s always available to talk with, ask questions, etc. I’ve had more benefit in the past 6 mos than most of my life combined with medicine, barring with my 2 retired physicians.
This all started for me when I read Dr. Catherine Shanahan’s book Deep Nutrition, which I highly recommend. Also The Cholesterol Myth. Those books, as well as other naturopathic doctors who have videos and websites like Dr Mercola’s, changed my life. I don’t always agree with everything online, obviously, but when you dive deep you see patterns and consensus emerge - and since naturopathic medicine isn’t going to poison you to try, you can see what works for you and what doesn’t.
My dry eye drops Similasan have been removed from Walmart and Kroger's. It is homeopathic and works better than the twice-as-expensive the name brands. It doesn't burn or blur your vision. Does Not meet FDA standards.
God bless you. Humility is needed by everyone. You are most generous to share what you are learning/have learned.
My daughter is a chiropractor and aspires to be just like Dr Tamara! We need an overhaul of our medical system with ppl that treat like Dr T ❤️
I am not particularly good at comprehending medical jargon or anything of a technical nature. Thank you for putting your information forth in a manner that is easy for someone like me to digest...It is so interesting and I hope to put it to good use.
There was an indication that Suzanne Somers was considering fenbendazole for her breast cancer based on this case report https://fenbendazole.substack.com but it was obviously too late.
I sent this to a friend who has worked in the supplement/detox biz for years and blogs for alternative practitioners. She wrote:
You know once these MDs become enlightened, it’s really heartwarming to see how humble they become.
….and I have so much respect for them! Imagine studying and training for 10-12 years, in a specific way of “helping” people, becoming more educated (and in debt) than most other segments of society…then, through a series of events, your eyes are opened, you realize you’ve really been working for big Pharma that whole time and not helping most people… your entire world is turned upside down -and you suddenly feel compelled to respect people you were taught to view as quacks, charlatans, or frauds. That then leads to another 5-10 years buried in an entirely different course of study (and more debt.) Their dedication is commendable to say the least.
Thoroughly enjoyed this segment
Thank you Dr. Yoho and Dr. Santa Ana for this great podcast! Wow!! So encouraging and informative!
An anecdotal real life story. Last year at 58 years young I got afib. I didn’t take the vaccine so it wasn’t Vax induced. I now know I went into afib because it was the perfect storm of being at high altitude, having too much thyroid medicine circulating in my body (armour thyroid) and too little iodine, magnesium and potassium (something most Drs are not going to look for). Anyhow, after a trip to the ER while in afib, the next week I went to my cardiologist and in addition to discussing afib with him, I was also having some pain the day I went to see him which was moving around from my throat to my shoulder area. He thought I also might be presenting with CAD. So, I got a cardiac ultra sound which shocked him because it was perfect. I had no swelling in legs either. When I got through with the ultrasound he said “ I am not sure what’s going on but I think we should do a heart catherization to check for blockage and/or let’s do a nuclear stress test.” I told him that I’d had a coronary calcium test two years ago that was a zero or a perfect score=no blockage (most of the time, I believe 96% of the time). My husband asked him “what procedure would you do if it was your wife?” (which I’m not sure a Dr will answer that truthfully IMHO) and he replied the heart cath. We asked what risks were. He said minimal but yes, one could die from it but highly unlikely. He still thought I should do one or the other so under pressure with both my husband and my cardiologist who is also a friend staring at me waiting for my answer (no pressure at all, NOT) I said I’d do the nuclear stress test and we scheduled it for the next morning.
I left his office and googled nuclear stress test and found out Nuclear stress tests involve significant radiation exposure equivalent to approximately 400 chest x-rays!! There are also risks involved besides potentially developing cancer due to unnecessary radiation exposure. https://www.oliverwyman.com/our-expertise/perspectives/health/2019/apr/-is-this-necessary----some-docs-order-too-many-expensive--danger.html
I also discovered there’s an organization out there that is trying to build awareness around the dangers of these tests in an effort to help Drs use safer tests to get the same information.
So, I promptly cancelled that test. I really felt that my Dr was barking up the wrong tree as I believe I’m pretty healthy, have low cholesterol, eat well most of the time, and don’t take any prescription medicine except armour for my thyroid.
Looking back, I believe this weird pain was due to elevated HS CRP and/or thickening of one of my carotid arteries. I’m still not sure though. But, I have learned to manage my afib using supplements (I researched about 100 hours to figure out root causes and alternatives to drugs). It wasn’t a fast or easy process but I’m doing great and in the last nine months, I hardly experience that weird pain or any afib episodes.I stopped taking metoporal after a few months which is the drug they give to almost everyone who has afib after realizing there were nutrients like magnesium that I was lacking that made me go into afib. I also was drinking a lot of alcohol (2 glasses of wine a night). So, I changed my lifestyle and worked with my GP who is more naturopathic in his treatment approach. Instead of looking at my heart/body at a 30,000 foot level, we looked at my magnesium, thyroid, iodine etc! The last time I went to see my GP, he listened to my heart and said it was the best heart he would hear all day!! Albeit, I have those creases on my ears!! My cardiologist told me that afib begets afib and when I walked out of his office, I said to myself “normal heart rhythm begets normal heart rhythm” and that was going to be my story and truth. And, now it is. I share this because I want everyone to know, we all have the ability to have these type of anecdotal, medical success stories!!
I repeat, I encourage everyone on here to do their own research. This substack is AMAZING and a great place to start! Our collective medical awakening should not just be about these death/disabling clot shots and the fraud that was perpetrated on us and continues to be in the name of science. Our awakening should be about all public health. Every Dr, medicine you’re given and every procedure recommended to you, many of which are just for DRS to CYA should be questioned, scrutinized and researched. Who cares if insurance pays for it if it’s harmful???
Read studies about every side effect of any drug you take or medical procedure and try to discover if changing your lifestyle (exercising more, abstinence from alcohol, making better food choices) is the cure. Is it work? Yes. Is it easier than taking a pill? No. But, until we start taking charge of our own health instead of giving it over to Drs, nothing will change.
Be blessed and be healthy. Just say “no.”
There are situations in which one should counter the urge to learn about more and more things. Instead, one can reflect and question what is already "known," so as to UNLEARN various notions, then relearn and guide oneself in a somewhat different direction.

I was curious about her and did general searches. It looks like she's maybe been trolled on Google maps? Short nasty low quality reviews and one glowing detailed review.
Contrary opinion to Mercola in:
"Though there are many things that Mercola gets right, he has never understood aging as internally signaled self-destruction, so he is more fearful of accumulated damage than I think is appropriate. Oxidized lipids fits well with his damage model of aging. I understand the theory, but I think the real-world evidence of epidemiology is more compelling, and epidemiology tells us that nuts and even olive oil are pro-longevity."
