Detox Tips

Dr. Julie’s Favorite Detox Meals & Snacks.

–Going on a detox plan with our doctors can be very intimidating at first.  Often times there is so much focus on what you can’t eat that the meals and snacks you are able to eat do not get discussed.  Once you know which of the items on the approved shopping list you like or want to try, the plans get easier and easier!  Even better news is that most are actually easy to make.

Menopause

Menopause making you miserable?

 

–Revolution Health Medical Center

–Menopause is a normal part of healthy aging, but some of the associated symptoms can be very troubling. For example, are hot flashes and night sweats interfering with your ability to get a good night’s sleep? Is the sleep deprivation causing anxiety or irritability or making you lose focus?

Are all of these symptoms leading to a decrease in both libido and general enjoyment of life? If you answered, “yes” to any of these questions, you are not alone.

Pre-diabetes

Pre-diabetes — are you at risk?–

–by Dr. Julie Gorman–

More than 41 million Americans fall into the category of having pre-diabetes. With pre-diabetes, one’s fasting blood sugar is above normal (100 mg/dL), but not yet high enough to be classified as diabetes. People with pre-diabetes do not usually have symptoms, so most are not even aware they have it. Doctors often just categorize these people into “watchful waiting,” which means they do not start treatment until the blood sugars are high enough to be classified as diabetes (a fasting blood sugar of 126 mg/dL or greater).

Back Pain

Seven steps for back pain relief–

by Dr. Julie Gorman — 

Pain is your body’s alarm system telling you something is wrong. While medications often can provide temporary relief, they do not address the underlying causes of the pain. In addition, they often have unwanted side effects, such as liver damage and stomach ulcers. Dealing with pain can be difficult, but with a comprehensive pain management plan that combines modern science, ancient healing techniques and a healthy lifestyle, you can find lasting relief.

Asthma — Breathe easier with natural medicine

–Revolution Health Medical Center

–If you have ever tried breathing through a straw, you know what asthma feels like. You probably know someone with asthma, maybe your child or spouse — perhaps even yourself. Asthma, a chronic inflammation of the lungs, is one of the most common childhood diseases and is responsible for more school absences and hospitalizations than any other chronic childhood illness.

While most asthma treatments, whether natural or conventional, focus on reducing inflammation, your naturopathic doctor will usually start with your diet, because the “Standard American Diet” (SAD), which is high in processed foods, sugar and fat, promotes this inflammation. Also, many asthmatics often have food allergies that can exacerbate asthma symptoms.
