DID YOU KNOW that there is something called pollen food allergy syndrome? It is really just a scientific way of saying that those with environmental allergies can makes them worse by consuming foods that cross-react. For example, if you are allergic to birch trees, eating apples during the height of the birch pollen season will exacerbate your allergies. An enlightening study in Nutrients recently confirmed this. Allergies are getting worse as the climate warms because plants become more stressed, thus they produce more pollen. Adult-onset allergy is also a relatively new term that has emerged over the last 10-15 years. If you would like to know how avoid cross-reactors, refer to our self-help Conquering Allergy & Intolerance Action Plan. Of course, we would always prefer an individualized appointment because few health professionals have more experience dealing with this issue than Steve and Bonnie.

2 Bone Protection Tips
Steve: There are a plethora of ways to maintain healthy bones. The two tips we will focus on in this piece are protein and antioxidants. A study from Clinical Nutrition found that women who increased their protein intake by 25 grams per day over their usual intake had a 14% less risk of hip fracture. And in women who were underweight, the risk was reduced by 45%. In the huge study, only 3% of women eating extra protein experienced a hip fracture. 25 grams of protein is the equivalent to an extra piece of fish our poultry. We discuss it all the time. Eating adequate protein leads to more muscle mass, especially skeletal muscle that helps move and protect our bones. The disgusting aspect of it all is that your doctors scare you to death about osteoporosis but rarely discuss diet, especially protein intake. The researchers in the same study found that a small amount of black tea or coffee was linked to an extra 4% reduction in bone fracture in this group of women. The antioxidant activity of both beverages was the driving force. Again, protecting our bones is multifactorial and should always individualized. But these two solutions are simple, necessary, and should certainly be part of every protocol before considering medication.
