▣ Xylitol vs. Fluoride: Not Even Fair

posted by David on April 4th, 2011 at 1:19 PM

The International Xylitol Conference comes at a crucial time in the debate on American dental care, specifically the role of fluoride in cavities. Fluoride is added to drinking water and oral hygiene products because of its so-called “cavityfighting” properties. However, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) in a new report says that the recommended level of fluoride in drinking water will be reduced to 0.7 mg/l from the current range of 0.7 to 1.2 mg/l. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is also set to review the maximum amount of fluoride allowed, which will be used to determine the legal fluoride level in drinking water sources. The study says that up to 40 percent of the U.S. population could be experiencing dental fluorosis and find their teeth mottled and weakened from too much fluoride.

▣ The Protein Solution—A Vegetarian Formula Like No Other

posted by David on March 21st, 2011 at 3:30 PM

It’s boggling to contemplate the myriad of health conditions that could be prevented simply by maintaining a healthy and balanced diet. Protein is at the foundation of healthy balanced eating. It provides our body with fuel to build muscles and tissue, helps boost the immune system and facilitates healing. The fact that the body does not store protein means we must consume adequate amounts of protein through our diets on a daily basis. Experts recommend adults consume 10 percent to 35 percent of their daily calories from protein.

 

Protein consumption is not a problem for many Americans, however, more protein is critical to the well-being of certain cases. Bodybuilders are one example. People who exercise regularly and lift weights require higher levels of protein to build muscles. Vegetarians and others who eschew protein-rich meat often find themselves short on protein and require supplementation to meet their protein needs. Those who need to gain weight find consuming extra protein helps them achieve their goals. And protein is critical to those who are recovering from or currently fighting disease or illness or those needing to build strength.

▣ Redefining Fast Food with Udo’s Choice Wholesome Fast Food Blend

Most days, life is a whirlwind. Out the door by 8 a.m., whiz the kids to school and put the pedal to the metal to make it into the office on time. After a full day of work, it’s time to race home, do errands and help with homework, make dinner, and if we’re lucky, get a little exercise and family time before bedtime. So where in our stuffed schedules do we find the time to shop for, let alone consume, healthy whole foods, enough fruit and vegetables to get our recommended five a day, and adequate vitamins and nutrients? Let’s face it, the average American diet leaves something to be desired. Eating on the run, which includes fast food most weeks, is the norm for many.

▣ Organic Ingredients for Dry Skin

posted by David on March 10th, 2011 at 12:33 PM

174 Comments added to this post

Flaky, cracked, dry skin afflicts millions of Americans every day. Anything that strips the natural oils of the skin will contribute to sapping skin’s moisture and suppleness. Cold, dry weather, daily showers, itchy clothing, and inadequate water intake—all are common factors leading to dry skin. In addition to being uncomfortable, dry, flaky skin can be unsightly. It makes perfect sense that we flock to stores to buy products that offer real relief. Yet many conventional moisturizers contain synthetic chemicals or “fragrance,” which can mask questionable additives. For example, some creams and lotions contain mineral oil, a petroleum derivative. It may provide temporary relief, but it will ultimately sap moisture from your skin. Even a product labeled "natural" might have a token bit of vitamin C, perhaps, or vitamin E thrown in amongst the synthetics, but not enough to have a therapeutic effect.

▣ Curcumin, The Natural Answer to Pain

posted by David on March 9th, 2011 at 4:57 PM

356 Comments added to this post

For millions of Americans, living with pain is, well, a huge pain. The American Pain Foundation estimates 26 percent of adults over age 20, and 60 percent over 65, suffer from chronic pain. Each year, we spend $2.6 billion on over-the-counter pain medicine and $14 billion on prescription painkillers. And what does all this suffering of body and bank account get us? Not much, I’m afraid.  As a co-founder of the Gerontology Research Group, and a doctor who’s devoted his career to studying supercentenarians, I’ve seen that synthetic pain medicines can hurt as much as they help. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen and aspirin can cause ulcers, stomach bleeding, and interfere with blood pressure medication. Higher up the pain ladder, prescription pills like Vicodin or Codeine can be expensive, addictive and dangerous.

 

So in searching for an effective, non-toxic, and natural way for my patients to manage pain, I’ve embraced curcumin, the yellow pigment found in the spice turmeric. For over 3,500 years, curcumin has been a key component in India’s Ayurvedic medicine, where it’s used as an antiseptic, anti-cancer, and, most importantly for pain sufferers, an anti-inflammatory.
