Dear Valued Subscriber,    


Did you know that eating an average of just under a half a cup of tree nuts daily over an average of eight weeks led to reductions in Hemaglobin A1C and fasting blood glucose, both measures of long-term glucose control? The best results were when the nuts replaced carbohydrates.

  • We will be closed Thursday, November 27 - Thanksgiving Day.
  • Please support us on Small Business Saturday, November 29th.

Have a happy, healthy Thanksgiving!


Bonnie, Steve, and everyone at Nutritional Concepts


Medical Nutrition Therapy Shines

You may be familiar with the term medical nutrition therapy (MNT). Those of you who have had insurance cover our services have seen this term on your doctor's prescription. In short, it means nutritional therapy prescribed by a doctor for a diagnosed medical condition.


In a new study that appeared in Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, researchers investigated the effect of medical nutrition therapy compared with usual care on fasting plasma glucose values, HbA1c, serum lipid levels, and Diabetes Risk Score, for a 12-week intervention in overweight or obese adults with prediabetes.


The MNT group experienced significantly lower HbA1c levels and Diabetes Risk Score than the usual care group after the 12-week intervention. Both groups experienced a reduction in total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol level.


The results demonstrate that individualized MNT is effective in decreasing HbA1c level in patients diagnosed with prediabetes.


Bonnie: Please note that medical nutrition therapy can only be performed by a licensed dietetic or nutritional professional.

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.
