The first thing that any doctor should discuss with an arthritic patient is his or her diet. In fact, I have seen many arthritic patients completely overcome their symptoms simply by improving their diets. All arthritic patients should have a thorough workup for food allergies, which create and fuel inflammation in the body. If arthritic patients eliminate and/or treat food allergies, they will experience far less joint pain. The most common food allergies I see are dairy and gluten. I have tested thousands of patients for food allergies, and more than 80 percent of adults exhibit high antibodies for casein — the most prevalent protein in cow’s milk. A simple blood test for IgG antibodies to casein can identify a dairy sensitivity. IgG testing is more clinically reliable than IgE testing. There are many labs that conduct tests for food allergies. NAET is an acupressure program designed to diagnose and treat food and environmental allergies. I have been doing NAET for more … [Read more...] about Good Diet Fights Arthritis

Dear Doc: Soy products are primarily GMOs (genetically modified organisms). When you process the soybean to make a veggie burger, the DNA is not recognized by our DNA. And that can lead to severe gastrointestinal problems. Your readers should know this. Tell them. — R.B. from NebraskaDear R.B.: Sorry, but you’re wrong. Our bodies digest GMO soy ingredients the same as they do heritage soy.But let’s look at that artificial product, the veggie burger, usually loaded with soy. The one I found had vegetable ingredients (sounds good), textured vegetable protein (soy), wheat, egg whites, cooked brown rice, rolled oats, corn oil, calcium caseinate (a milk-based protein) and soy sauce.This is artificially constructed, made to look and taste like a burger product, so you need to beware. I worry more about what goes into making this stuff than I do GMOs. Which means if you want a non-burger “burger,” you need to shop well. Pick one that has more natural … [Read more...] about Dr. Zorba Paster: Soy today is different but bodies process the same

A person's body is about 60 percent water, and drinking water is essential to a healthful diet. However, what types of water a person drinks has become surprisingly controversial. One of the emerging trends in late 2017 and early 2018 is the sale of "raw water." Raw water is unfiltered, unprocessed, or untreated water that is bottled directly from a natural spring. Some manufacturers are selling this water and marketing it as a safer alternative to chemically treated water, maintaining that their water has natural probiotics that help promote digestion and good health. However, scientists and government officials have expressed concerns over untreated water. Raw water may be an instance where "natural" is not necessarily better. It may also be true that raw water does not offer distinct health benefits over a healthful diet that includes drinking tap or bottled water. Sanitation officials and water manufacturers add chemicals to drinking water that comes from the tap or bottles to kill … [Read more...] about Is it safe to drink raw water?

That’s why you might find yourself frantically Googling things like “ways to boost milk supply” and "how the F do I get more milk?" in the middle of the night. And when "lactation teas" pop to the top of your search results, you might be tempted to click purchase.But are lactation teas are legit—or a total scam? The reality is, there isn’t a ton of science behind these teas. “The evidence isn’t really strong on these teas, it’s more anecdotal,” says women’s health expert Jennifer Wider, M.D.Related: This Is How Nikki Reed Carried Her Breast Pump To The Golden GlobesJulie Lamppa, A.P.R.N., a certified nurse midwife at Mayo Clinic, agrees, noting that research doesn’t clearly support that they actually work. “The clinical trials which do show that lactation teas or herbs help boost milk supply tend to be small … [Read more...] about Lactation Tea Is All The Rage With Some Breastfeeding Moms—But Does It Work?
