Some of the best parts of summer are edible, however indulging in the season’s most popular foods at picnics, barbecues and on boardwalks can lead to double trouble when it comes to your health because of certain summer food intolerances.
 
 
She says this is why reactions to food sensitivities increase during this season and what causes these reactions resulting in unwanted flare-ups that are real summer spoilers – and what nutritional steps you can take to avoid a reaction.  PLUS what foods you can substitute that will make summer more edible and enjoyable.

Fact or Fiction?

  • 1. Lactose intolerance is the most common food intolerance.

  • 2. Food intolerance is more common in women than in men.

  • 3. In the U.S., 12 percent of the population suffers from migraines, and food triggers are involved in about half the cases.

  • 4. Non-immune food intolerances may result from poor digestibility due to low enzyme levels.

  • 5. Physical reactions to certain foods are common,

    but most are caused by a food intolerance rather than a food allergy.

  • 6.  If you have a food intolerance, you may be able to eat small amounts of the offending food without trouble. You may also be able to prevent a reaction using supplementation.

Nearly half of all adults (150 Million) in the United States have high blood pressure, according to the most recent statistics from the American Heart Association.

Could you benefit by defying your doctors advice to use meds for decreasing high blood pressure and rely on other proven methods?

Dr. Steven Helschien (www.zona.com) is the founder of Level 1 Diagnostics and Level 1 Therapeutics. He retired in 2000 to pursue his passion of creating new paradigms for preventative cardiology and integrative psychiatry. Dr. Helschien is considered a leading authority on heart rate variability, pulse wave velocity and carotid ultrasonography. He is also an expert on the use of neurofeedback and brain training. He has authored booklets on "Stress and Anxiety," "Blood Pressure," "Yoga," "Meditation," "Sleep", "Heart Health", and "Diabetes," and created a workbook,  "Staying on Track.” His monthly articles can be found in the Townsend Letter for Doctors.

While adequate treatment is crucial and there are many approaches, from medication to lifestyle changes, controlling high blood pressure can be difficult.

Dr. Steven Helschien says non-med alternatives, such as exercise and diet, often can be effective remedies, and he thinks too many patients are using prescriptions when they could improve their blood pressure without medications and their side effects.

“Often in our society there’s a tendency to throw meds at a problem. That happens a lot with patients afflicted with high blood pressure. Some studies have shown a good number of people are over-treated."

Helschien discusses the non-prescription alternatives to treating high blood pressure and how the malady, if left unattended, can lead to many worsening health problems.

These are some questions I ask the doc:

Blood pressure issues used to be an older person issue. Is that still true? 

What are some signs of high blood pressure will see/feel without visiting a doc's office

What are the challenges doctors often face when a patient needs attention for their blood pressure?

What do you believe MD’s need to do to inform their patients?

What are the most effective ways to reduce high blood pressure without using medications?

What are the most common side effects of blood pressure meds?

Do you have an invincible it-can't-happen-to-me-mindset? Money, age and gender don't preclude us from having any of the 5 silent killers that have no symptoms. 

Christine Horner, M.D., FACS, is a nationally known surgeon, author and professional speaker and holds two board certifications: the National Board of Surgery and the National Board of Plastic Surgery. Dr. Horner was recognized as a leader in her field shortly after starting her plastic and reconstructive surgery practice because she successfully ran a national campaign to pass laws requiring insurance companies to pay for breast reconstruction following mastectomy. Her five-year crusade with the Breast Reconstruction Advocacy Project (BRA Project) led to the passage of an unprecedented federal law that was signed by President Bill Clinton in 1998, requiring insurance companies to pay for this specific surgical procedure. Horner is the award-winning author of, “Waking The Warrior Goddess: Dr. Christine Horner's Program to Protect Against and Fight Breast Cancer,” (3rd Edition) and her award-winning book, “Radiant Health, Ageless Beauty,” (Elgea Publishing, 2016).

Some diseases can really creep up on you, the scariest of which have no symptoms 

Here are the 5 silent killers Dr Horner discusses:

1: High Blood Pressure Nearly half the population
is oblivious to the fact that they have high blood pressure
according to a study published in JAMA. 

2. Sleep Apnea:

Here’s a startling statistic: sleep apnea not a fat guy issue. 

It affects up to half of all women between the ages of 20-70. 

Symptoms include morning headaches, mood disturbances and low-lying fatigue and have

been linked to heart disease and Type 2 diabetes. According to the Mayo Clinic, only

10 percent of sleep apnea sufferers are diagnosed and treated.


3. HPV 
79 million Americans have human papillomavirus or HPV, the most common sexually transmitted disease in the United States, but few people know they have it, which might explain why another 14 million people will get infected each year. Not only are there no symptoms, there is no simple test for HPV and the only people who typically get screened are women during a pap

The good news is, your body can rid itself of HPV if the immune system is strong.

4. Pancreatic Cancer. 

A study found that drinking two or more colas a week almost doubles a person’s risk of developing pancreatic cancerConsidered one of the deadliest forms of cancer, pancreatic cancer may not surface with symptoms of jaundice, upper abdominal pain and rapid weight loss until it’s in its advanced stages. More than 55,000 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year and of those more than 44,000 will die.

5. Diabetes Alarmingly, this disease can go undiagnosed for quite some time, which may explain why 7.2 million Americans are undiagnosed and unaware they have diabetes. You may think excessive thirst, frequent urination and irritability are all par for the course of a hectic lifestyle but these little warning signs may be putting you in the group of 30.3 million Americans diagnosed with diabetes

Pain is a massive problem that affects 125 million Americans who are spending close to $300 billion on pills, pot, procedures and natural remedies to find relief. 

Did you know there are diet and lifestyle changes as well as natural remedies that can help pain sufferers get relief from some of the three most common pain complaints, reducing reliance on heavy sedative medication that has potential side effects?

What's odd, yet positive about this show is how some Md's in the medical community are doing their research and stepping out from the narrow-minded ways they were taught in medical school.

What's really interesting is the information about certain nutrients and supplements mentioned in this show is not new information. It's at least 30 yrs old. 

So why bother with this show? The flexibility of some doctors who are open-minded to something other than writing a prescription.

There are still too many doctors who dismiss the power of nutrients whether they come in food or supplement form. 

Having MD's on the show discussing these benefits as if it were their idea is both fun as well as beneficial for other MD's who may be stuck in their old, outdated one way of looking at an issue focus.

It also opens discussion for MD's who lose a fighting battle with insurance company's which keeps the doctor on the same old path just so they can make a living.

This is one of the reasons doctors are doing their research and adopting more natural methods the nutrition community has known to be beneficial for decades.

  • Muscle pain: Tension, stress, overuse and minor injuries are the most common causes of muscle pain. A JAMA study reported the diseases with the largest number of years lived with disability in 2010 were low back pain and other musculoskeletal disorders including neck pain.
  • Joint pain: Damage to the joints from disease or injury can cause pain in the form of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, gout, sprains, strains and other injuries. Age and injuries can increase your risk of joint pain.
  • Head pain: This pain can come in the form of migraines, tension-type and cluster headaches. Causes of headaches include fatigue, sleep deprivation, stress, side effects of medications, viral infections, head injury, common colds, and dental or sinus issues.
  1. Who is to blame for the pain problem in America? Is it the fault of doctors, patients or both?
  2. What is contributing to the misuse of pain medications in America?
  3. How can common muscle pain problems be addressed through diet, natural remedies and lifestyle changes?
  4. What are some herbs and oils that can be used to relieve head pain?
  5. What sort of questions should you ask your doctor before accepting a prescription for a painkiller?

​Dr. Webster and I discuss how chiropractic is going beyond improving the function of individual joints.
 
A growing body of evidence indicates that injury, pain, and inflammation from back pain not only affect the individual joints involved or a region of the spine but also has a significant impact on the function and structure of both the sensory and motor brain function.
 
How can the pain/brain connection affect​ ​ memory, language skills, cognitive function, decision-making, and appraisal, in chronic back pain patients?
 
Compelling new evidence demonstrates reduced gray matter ​(​fewer brain cells​) ​in numerous parts of the brain in people with chronic back pain. 
 
How can chiropractic manipulation and motor-skill training affect someone long-term?
 
​What happens when someone delays needed surgery or physical therapy and push​es​ through chronic pain?
 
​Episodes of acute pain with injury may induce plastic changes in the sensorimotor system including dysfunctional motor control of spinal joint segments​.
 
Are there any lasting effects after the symptom of pain is gone?
 
In 2010​ it was ​found that a single session of spinal manipulation applied to dysfunctional cervical joints resulted in improved sensory​ ​responses in subjects with recurring neck pain and stiffness.​ 
 
Is there evidence that these therapies can be helpful with other conditions associated with brain health?
 
While some of this info can be a little technical, Dr. Webster does a great job of breaking it out.
