Properly targeted dietary therapy as a primary intervention can have a tremendous impact on patients, often to the point of complete symptom remission. Dietary intervention improves outcomes and quality of life and can save thousands of dollars by addressing the underlying cause of symptom production often triggered by a sensitivity to certain foods.

Do you know the difference between a Food Sensitivity, Food Allergy and Food Intolerance?

Not Natural for Blood Pressure to go up as we age

February 16th, 2011 by

Did you know it is not natural for blood pressure to go up as we age?- That is not the American way– By 50 years of age our chance of having high blood pressure is around 60% and by the time we are 70 years of age it is more than 80%.  With the extra salt comes vascular problems that can affect the heart, minds,eyes and ears.  Our western diet contributes 10 – 15% more salt than the body really needs.

Many times people will tell me they don’t cook with salt but most of the salt that Americans are consuming is coming from processed foods.

Heart Disease reduced by increasing plant based foods

February 1st, 2011 by

Heart disease doesn’t just happen because we get people get older. We are born with clean, flexible arteries. It is now documented that narrowing of arteries can be found in children ages 3 to 4 years old. By the time we reach 50 -60 years of age our arteries are 50 – 70% clogged.  Out of all the countries in the world 17% don’t have problems with heart disease.

In Japan in 1960′s heart disease was so rare that the  University of Tokyo Medical school had to import coronary arteries from North America to show medical students what killed every second person in the United States.  During World War II as the war progressed some  Europeans were forced to change their diets from meat, eggs, and dairy products  to beans(legumes), vegetables, grains, and potatoes and we saw a huge decrease of many diseases.

Increasing plant-based foods meals can help dramatically reduce your risk of heart disease.
