Diabetes Linked to Alzheimer’s Disease Risk

Alzheimer’s…the word alone is enough to scare most people over 50.  Whether it be because we know someone or some family that has been effected by this condition or whether we fear it for ourselves, Alzheimer’s disease (AD) has become […]

How to Rationalize Your Chocolate

Death by chocolate?  Well, maybe not so.  You may have heard that there is a saving grace in that luxurious, seemingly sinful, guilty pleasure called chocolate.  Well, here’s the latest scoop but I’ve kept it kiddie size. Chocolate goodness starts […]

Migraine Treatment Without Medications

Although I am very fortunate to have never experienced a migraine headache, I treat a significant number of people who are debilitated by them regularly.  In fact, almost 20% of American women suffer from migraines.  Clarification:  Many use the word […]

Your Snotty Kid May Have Food Allergies

If you’re a TV channel surfer, no doubt you heard the latest news released throughout the media this weekend – food allergies are becoming more common and more severe based on a large, patient reported research study out of Northwestern […]

Meet Ken!

It’s story time again. While I enjoy writing educational blogs, my passion lives with patient ‘stories’. In the medical world, we call these ‘case studies’, but to me, it’s so sterile sounding. These are real people….parents, siblings, children- unique individuals […]

Is Your Child Doomed for Diabetes?

In the Land of Primary Care there are a few medical diagnoses that really scare people like diabetes, and rightfully so. Most people may not realize it is an inflammatory disease caused by poor blood sugar management. (If you haven’t […]

The Link Between Allergies, IBS and Anxiety

Why is it so hard to believe that a specific food could be the cause of so many of your health problems?  This is the question I pose to patients day in and day out.  As a patient of an […]

Disney and The Allergy Friendly Mouse!!

Our office gladly houses clinical educators specializing in living healthfully and being true to what your body thrives on (or off, as is the case with food allergies, sensitivities and many other diseases of lifestyle).  Please enjoy Michele’s experience navigating […]

Navigating “The Holidays” Healthfully

Oh yes…it’s that time of year!  A traditional time of overindulgence that begins with Thanksgiving and continues through to the New Year.  Maybe it starts with not making the time to fit in exercise.  Maybe it starts with that first […]

Seniors Curing Disease Without Medication

Story time!  I had another amazing experience at the office today.  A 77 year old woman came to us just a few months ago with arthritis, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, acid reflux and prediabetes- not to mention her obesity. […]

The Great American Cookie Debate

I was reading an article in the New York Times November 28, 2010 edition tonight and found a catchy title that obviously had me at ‘Junking.’  The title, “Junking Junk Food” did not prepare me, however, for the subject matter-  […]

To Soy or Not to Soy… The Sequel

Welcome back to our second post on ‘To Soy or Not to Soy…”  I would highly encourage you to read my previous post as you will need that quick update to make the most out of this post.    Now, […]

To Soy or Not to Soy…

One of the biggest debates in the health food-minded world today surrounds the use of soy and soy derived products.  Some extol the benefits of soy ranging from healthier skin to breast cancer prevention, while others condemn the bean as […]

Are You an Everyday Addict?

Addiction is a word that conjures up many images- usually of the heroin addict, the alcoholic or the chain smoker.  But have you ever thought about whether or not you might have an addiction to something less melodramatic?  Did you […]

Sugar Fuels Cancer and ADHD

If you have been following my “exhalation” s/p (that’s medical-ese for ‘status post’ meaning ‘after’) attending the SIMPLE conference in Albuquerque recently, get ready for some more juicy information.  Remembering that this was a conference designed to unite and educate […]

Treating, Not Just Preventing, Diabetes with Lifestyle Change

There is one word that strikes fear in the hearts of every diabetic that I have ever diagnosed in my office.  One word that conjures up images of needles, syringes, blood, pricking yourself day in and day out, chasing high […]

Organic Foods Tipping the Nutritional Scales

For me, organic foods provide an assurance of the absence of harmful chemicals as well as the myriad of unhealthy and unethical growing practices.  I guess I’ve always subscribed to the “organic soil is healthier and plants grown in healthier […]

Diagnosing Celiac Disease Changes Lives

It’s been a long week at the office with plenty of excitement.  It’s rewarding on most days and occasionally emotionally draining on others.  But today, I wanted to share a pull-at-your-heartstrings type of visit that I had.  Sometimes, I’d like […]

Going Organic – Ethics

Continuing on our series covering the case for Going Organic, we find ourselves at the dreaded ‘ETHICS’ discussion.  For those following along, we’re on our fourth blog dedicated to this topic.  If you’ve missed the previous, you might want to […]

Going Organic – Global Impact

So when we last left our Organic food blog, we talked about the Clean 17 (the ‘cleanest’ produce) and the Dirty Dozen (the most chemical-laden produce).  Chemical toxins were a big part of that discussion as the first factor that […]

Going Organic – The Clean 17

In the last twenty years, Americans have been a part of a fast-growing movement.  It’s a movement so strong that even the nation’s largest food companies and retailers could not overlook it.   What could be responsible for $24.5 billion dollars […]

Going Organic – The Dirty Dozen

In the last post, we defined ‘organic’ and revealed the Clean 17.  Even with this list, the decision to buy organic is one that is not as black and white as it may seem.  The choice to purchase organic products […]

Low Fat Diets Are Unhealthy

If you’ve read Michael Pollan’s work, you may already know how, decades ago, Americans were emphatically urged to cut fat out of their diet in order to avoid heart disease.  The promise: the more foods you converted to low fat […]

Healthy Summer Fun

Summer is here and it’s time for America’s favorite past-times- outdoor barbeques, trips to the beach and pool parties.  Wherever you go, the motto is to do it up!  Big, cheesy burgers, mounds of deep fried chips, liters of sugary […]
