Dear Valued Subscriber,    


Did you know that having a doctor write you a prescription with a diagnosis, diagnosis code, and the three words "medical nutrition therapy" is the formula for insurance to reimburse part or all of our services?

Have a happy, healthy week. Bonnie and Steve Minsky


Magnesium and Metabolic Syndrome

The results of new study in this month's issue of Diabetic Medicine showed that there is an inverse association between dietary magnesium intake and metabolic syndrome prevalence.


Those with a lower magnesium intake have a greater risk of developing metabolic syndrome. The dose dependent relationship found the overall risk of metabolic syndrome lowered with every 100 mg per day increment in magnesium intake.


A low dietary intake of magnesium should now be considered a potential risk factor. Magnesium is needed in several biological processes, including the metabolism of insulin and glucose. Overall risk of metabolic syndrome was decreased as daily magnesium consumption was increased.


Steve: Magnesium should be considered a medical, not just nutritional, staple for metabolic syndrome therapy and prevention.


Holiday Dinner Party Nightmare
Steve: We commiserate with those of you cooking for the holidays in the age of eating style specialization. This is hilarious!

Happily Melt in a Far Infrared Sauna

One way to thaw out from the deep freeze is to experience Far Infrared Sauna Therapy. We have had one in our office for several years and it rarely fails to disappoint.


Aside from the fact that you are taking one hour out of your busy lives to relax, Far Infrared Therapy offers numerous therapeutic benefits, most importantly enhanced detoxification. Many clients use it to relieve painful joints, rev up metabolism, and remove buildup of heavy metals.
