Brain Health Special Issue
From eNewsletter 5/8/2023
DID YOU KNOW that for years we have used cranberry as a preventive strategy for urinary tract infections (UTIs) while the medical world has been slow to adapt?
A global study from Cochrane Reviews examining the benefits of cranberry products has determined cranberry juice and supplements reduce the risk of repeat symptomatic UTIs in women by more than a quarter, in children by more than half, and in people susceptible to UTI following medical interventions by about 53%.
This is shocking given the fact that Cochrane rarely publishes positive conclusions.
We almost always recommend cranberry supplements over juice because it is less acidic and has less of an effect on blood sugar. Moreover, we have found that cranberry when accompanied with D-mannose is even more effective.

My Grandma Rocks!!
Our client Dr. Penny Silvers wrote a children's book that warrants our attention.
The impetus for Penny to write "My Grandma Rocks!!" came from the archaic characterization of grandmothers in children's books as frail and inactive. She wanted to change the narrative because grandmothers like Penny and our own Bonnie Minsky are active career women, yet still find time for their grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
You can find the book at Penny's website or amazon. Congrats Penny!
