What clues does your tongue show about your overall health?

Our tongues can provide meaningful and fascinating information about our state of health and nutritional status. The bulk of knowledge about the diagnostic aspects of the tongue comes from ancient Chinese medicine, which clinically observed the tongue for over a thousand years. Chinese medicine uses three main factors when “reading” the tongue, looking at the coating, color and shape.

RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association

To Observe National Infertility Awareness Week®

April 19 – 25, 2015      

 

By Dr. Julie Gorman NMD

                   Revolution Health Medical Center and RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association will recognize National Infertility Awareness Week®, April19  through April 25,  joining millions of women and men fighting the disease of infertility, healthcare professionals, mental health professionals,  and other thought leaders to promote greater awareness about infertility.

If you have been having difficulty starting or expanding your family, you are not alone. Infertility affects at least one in eight U.S. couples. When you are experiencing infertility, communicating with family and friends can be difficult. It is important to find support and information to help you take charge of your fertility.

 

Whether you goal is to conceive naturally or you fertility plan includes Assisted Reproductive Therapies (ART) such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF) or intra-uterine insemination (IUI), our Optimizing Fertility Program offers a comprehensive holistic plan to help you conceive and maintain a healthy pregnancy.

Many of our patients are referred to us by reproductive medicine specialists.  Our Naturopathic Medical Doctors commonly work with these specialists to help enhance the success of their treatment, over and above what the conventional fertility protocols alone can accomplish.

The use of Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be used alone or in combination with other fertility treatments. Acupuncture provides a non-invasive and drug-free approach that is clinically proven to improve success rates for couples struggling with infertility. Medical studies have shown that acupuncture can:

  • Regulate the menstrual cycle and ovulation
  • Improve ovarian and hormone function for better quality follicles/eggs
  • Increase uterine blood flow and lining
  • Reduce anxiety and stress
  • Modulate side effects of fertility medications
  • improve the success rate of IVF, IUI and other technologies
  • reduce the incidence of miscarriage
  • improve male factor issues including sperm quality, quantity and motility

These days it seems everyone wants to do the healthy thing and eat organic.  However, it can be not only cost prohibitive but also not necessary.  Each year there is a list put out by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) called “the dirty dozen” that helps us to know what items we should all be focusing on for our organic eating.  These are the foods that are most likely to be unhealthy for us due to the pesticides and other unnatural and unhealthy things that are added and absorbed.  Likewise there are items that do not necessarily need to be organic in order to be “clean” or otherwise healthy.

Here is a list that might be useful as you decide what section of the grocery store to buy your produce:

With allergy season in high gear in AZ, and getting ready to start in many other parts of the country, neti pots are reappearing in many households.  Here at Revolution Health Medical Center we are seeing many patients for allergy testing in general, and encourage the use of neti pots on a regular basis for those experiencing congestion.

Is it ok to use a neti pot every day?  In a recent TODAY Health article many of the common questions surrounding this were addressed.  The overwhelming response to the questions surrounding the use of the neti pot daily is yes.  As with anything, as you see from reading the article and discussion with our doctors, is cleanliness and caution.

  • Do not share the neti pot with anyone else
  • Use a reliable water source, preferably distilled or boiled water (then cooled)
  • Keep the neti pot clean after each use
  • Do not reuse the saline and water mixture after each use

Our Doctors are available to discuss and demonstrate the use of the neti pot to you during your appointment if appropriate for the treatment of your nasal congestion.

GMO Food Labeling in AZ?

It was reported in the Phoenix New Times by Miriam Wasser that a group down at the AZ Legislature is trying to  require food containing even just one genetically engineered ingredient be labeled as GMO.  State Representative Juan Mendez is the primary author of  HB 2462.  This adds Arizona to the 30 other states that are currently trying to get GMO labeling mandates added.
