Dear Valued Subscriber,

With spring allergy season upon us, we are proud to introduce our all new Conquering Allergy and Intolerance Action Plan.
Conquering Allergy and Intolerance:
The Only Remove and Replace Action Plan for Environmental Allergy, Food Allergy, Food Intolerance, and Gluten Intolerance.

Conquering Allergy and Intolerance is our most complete allergy and food intolerance guide to date. Its succinct, "hands-on" style replaces our former Food Allergy Handbook. We have added copious amounts of new information and protocols to help you address and manage your reactors. Highlights include:
  • Explaining the difference between allergy and intolerance.
  • How to avoid food reactors and our recommended replacements.
  • Tree pollen, Grass pollen, Mold spore, and Ragweed pollen food cross-reactors and our recommended replacements.
  • The latest in allergy and intolerance testing and therapies.
  • GMOs: Emerging Allergy Threat?
For those gearing up for spring allergy season, right now is the ideal time to implement the recommendations in this Action Plan. You are welcome to view the entire Table of Contents here or purchase here directly.

Thai Cooking for Health & Happiness
March is a tough month to weather, especially in cold climates. Thai cooking embraces this issue, promotes recipes to get through cold and flu season, and helps ease us into spring.

According to Food and Wine, Thai cooking philosophy includes four principles that are intertwined with Thai medicine:
  1. Water - various broths and green veggies are linked in Thai medicine to the water element. Its mild ingredients are thought to relieve flu symptoms and boost stamina.
  2. Wind - ginger, garlic, lemongrass, and cilantro are wind-element foods used in Thai medicine to help circulation and protect the heart.
  3. Earth - buckwheat (used in soba noodles) and salty foods like miso are earth-element ingredients that help warm the body on cold days.
  4. Fire - associated with bitter flavors; nutrient-rich bitter greens like Swiss Chard and kale are also thought to be purifying.
Please enjoy Soba Thai Noodle Stir-Fry, a gluten-free, balanced-meal recipe we prepared to encompass the four Thai cooking principles. Several more Thai recipes have been added to our Recipes to Live By.

Ingredient Announcements
Carlson Mini Multi
Carlson has added corn-based maltodextrin to its Mini Multi supplement. We have asked them to remove it, but until then, we are recommending one cap of Metabolic Maintenance Little One for those who are corn-intolerant. For those who cannot have supplemental iron (Little One has a small amount), we recommend one cap of Twinlab Daily One Caps without iron. Always take your multi after a substantial protein meal.

Pure Encaps Calcium MCHA
Pure Encaps has reduced the dose of their 300 mg. capsule by 50 mg. It is now 250 mg. per capsule. Check with Bonnie if you feel you may need to alter your supplement protocol. PE also recently discontinued their 150 mg. calcium supplement.

Have a happy, healthy day.
