Our Reference Guide to a Better Lifestyle

Attorney Jay Stillman

Jay Stillman and Mike Friedland, Tennessee car and truck accident attorneys,  recommend a healthy life style as one of the best aids to recovery from injury, and for everyone who wants to avoid the deterioration which many suffer with age or after injury.

We have offered a number of pointers in our blogs, and in this edition, we are providing a comprehensive list of excellent resources so you can look at what top experts and doctors are saying about key health topics.  Don’t just take our word on diet—listen to the experts!  We give you both print and video links to click so you can check out good, informative presentations on these topics.

We have learned that you must do your own research to find the truth, it is often hard to find! Unfortunately, modern medicine doesn’t have all the answers, so when my clients reach a dead end and cannot get better, this is where I refer them for research into what really can help them feel better, heal better, and enjoy life more.

It’s a lot of material, so pick and choose what is most important to you now, but keep coming back!


For a quick overall view of how nutrition science ran off the rails, and why the low-fat, low saturated fat diet has failed us, you can read “The Questionable Link Between Saturated Fat and Heart Disease”, a Wall Street Journal article by Nina Teicholz.

The article that in many ways was the start of today’s low-carb revolution is Gary Taubes’ “What If It’s All Been a Big Fat Lie?”.  Taubes followed this seminal article with two excellent books,  Good Calories, Bad Calories, and Why We Get Fat and What To Do About It.

Here’s another article by Gary Taubes, called “Is Sugar Toxic?”

Neurologist Dr. David Perlmutter has a number of articles which explore the link between      bad diet and a sedentary lifestyle in declining brain health, as Alzheimer’s disease is

increasing among aging Americans. He is the author of Grain Brain, which describes the factors which contribute to declining mental health, and offers diet and exercise solutions to prevent dementia. We also suggest you look at this NYT article which asks, “Is Alzheimer’s Type 3 Diabetes?”.

For an interesting look at why vegetarian/vegan lifestyle is neither moral nor healthy, read Dr. Michael Eades’ blog article on The Vegetarian Myth.

If you suffer from an auto-immune disease—and most of us will, if you remember that arthritis is an auto-immune disease—you may want to try Dr. Terry Wahl’s nutrition protocols which she used to reverse her debilitating decline from MS.  Here’s a link to an interview which you can access as an audio file, or you can scroll down the page for the transcript.
