“Atmosphere and social pressure can play a huge role in what we choose to eat, and during the summer a lot of people will let down their guard when it comes to food,
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.
Learn about the four foods that can really turn on you and cause flare-
ups that can spoil your summer.

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.
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 cancer. Considered 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.
