DID YOU KNOW that a cautionary study from Mayo Clinic Proceedings warn that yoga postures that flex the spine beyond its limits may raise the risk of compression fractures in people with thinning bones.
Patients identified 12 poses they said caused or aggravated their symptoms. The most common postures involved extreme flexing or extending of the spine. The authors suggest if you have osteoporosis or osteopenia, you should modify the postures to accommodate your condition.
NUTRIBIOTIC DENTAL GEL IS BACK!
After almost a year, NutriBiotic finally brought back our favorite toothpaste. For the fervent fans of this product, many who have used it for more than half their lives, it is quite a relief. We have not been thrilled with the alternatives.
ALLERGISTS ARE GETTING THE MEMO
Bonnie & Steve: For many years, we have been touting the ease and effectiveness of sublingual allergy drops as opposed to trudging to the allergist's office weekly for allergy shots. This has fallen on deaf ears, until recently.
For the longest time, allergists thought that the sublingual drops would destroy their business model. Little did they realize that many patients avoided the allergists office like the plague because of weekly allergy shots.
Allergists are finally starting to realize that they can make up what visits they lose from the shots by seeing triple the amount of patients for sublingual drops.
A new study in Annals of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology show that the number of allergists offering sublingual allergy drops has risen dramatically over the last few years.
This is welcome news to the millions who abhor going for weekly allergy shots. More importantly, the sublingual drops are sure to reach millions more patients than shots ever did.
If you are unaware, sublingual allergy drops are simply placed under the tongue one to three times daily. Many drops are made for just one allergen. However, there are several companies who can mix all of your allergens into one solution. Not only is this well tolerated, but much easier to dispense.
We have hundreds of clients who have used sublingual allergy drops successfully. Using the drops and avoiding cross-reacting foods during the height of pollen season can lessen symptoms by 75 percent minimum!
CRUCIFEROUS COLESLAW RECIPES
Bonnie: Since we have been analyzing Pure Genomics results for our clients, they realize how important cruciferous vegetables are (including broccoli, broccolini, cauliflower, Brussels Sprouts, cabbage, arugula, and kale) for detoxification, heart health, blood sugar balance and cancer prevention. It is easy to cook them (steamed or microwaved), but important health benefits occur when they are also eaten raw on a regular basis. Some people complain that they are too hard to digest raw, but made thinly cut into coleslaw, they become much easier to digest. Below are simple delicious recipes that can safely be refrigerated for up to four days..this article is reserved for NCI Well Connect Members. You can get this article by signing up here.
