Now is the time for NAET Treatments for Spring Allergies!

You may be wondering: why are we talking about allergies when it’s still cold outside? Truth is, the spring allergy season can begin as early as March for the Detroit area. For those who suffer through allergies each spring, this may be terrible news. But there are preventative steps you can take to keep this year’s spring allergy season from bogging you down.

Many patients think they should wait until their symptoms start to seek treatment, but it’s actually best to come in before the allergy season starts if you know you typically experience them during the spring months.

Article from https://www.drweil.com
On the Japanese island of Okinawa, turmeric tea is a way of life. The population drinks this traditional favorite daily, and numerous studies have linked turmeric with wide-ranging anti-inflammatory effects. Perhaps this helps to explain why the people of Okinawa have one of the world’s longest average life spans: 81.2 years.

While turmeric tea is among Dr. Weil’s favorite beverages (particularly the refreshing iced version), he offers this recipe for Golden Milk Tea as another great way to get the many benefits of turmeric on a daily basis, along with the antioxidant power of ginger and black pepper.

Turmeric & Golden Milk Benefits

Used to impart color and flavor to everything from traditional Indian curries to ballpark mustard, this deep-orange herb’s many health benefits are well documented. In a comprehensive summary of 700 studies published by ethnobotanist James A. Duke, PhD., in the October, 2007 issue of Alternative & Complementary Therapies, Duke found extensive evidence that turmeric can reduce inflammation and support brain and joint health.

Drinkers of Golden Milk can also reap the benefits of ginger, a natural anti-inflammatory that can help relieve symptoms of arthritis, bursitis and other musculoskeletal ailments. Additionally, Golden Milk is flavored by black pepper, whose sharp taste comes from the alkaloid piperine, which enhances the absorption and the anti-inflammatory effects of turmeric. Plus, black pepper contains a number of essential nutrients, including manganese, iron and vitamin K, and is commonly used to calm digestive issues

Perfect for an evening drink just before bed, here is Dr. Weil’s recipe for Golden Milk:

Golden Milk Recipe

  • Heat 2 cups light, unsweetened coconut milk (or almond or soymilk)
  • Add 1/2 tablespoon peeled, grated fresh ginger
  • Add 1 tablespoon peeled, grated fresh turmeric
  • Add 3-4 black peppercorns
  • Heat all ingredients in a saucepan
  • Stir well
  • Bring to a simmer and simmer covered for 10 minutes.
  • Strain and sweeten to taste (if desired).

Simple and delicious – enjoy!

Inflammation: The root of many diseases

https://draxe.com/inflammation-at-the-root-of-most-diseases/
Inflammation has been found to be associated with just about every health condition.  Researchers are furiously investigating chronic inflammation’s effects on health and possible preventive medical applications.

It’s “an emerging field,” says UCLA’s Dr. David Heber. “It’s a new concept for medicine.”

Why is it a new concept? Because modern medicine focuses on treating symptoms, not addressing the root cause of an issue. Arthritis is inflammation of the joints. Heart disease is inflammation of the arteries. Instead of taking a medication to reduce joint pain or lower cholesterol, we would be better served by reducing inflammation in the body.

Dr. Tanya Edwards, director of the Center for Integrative Medicine, writes that inflammation is now recognized as the “underlying basis of a significant number of diseases.”

Although inflammation has long been known to play a role in allergic diseases like asthma, arthritis and Crohn’s disease, Edwards says that Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels and Parkinson’s disease may all be related to chronic inflammation in the body.

What is Inflammation?

Inflammation isn’t always bad; It is the body’s natural defense against damaged cells, viruses, bacteria, etc. It aims to remove these harmful or foreign invaders and heal itself.

Inflammation can sometimes be mistaken for inflection, but the two are not the same. Infection can, however, cause inflammation because infection is caused by harmful substances like bacteria or fungus. In fact, inflammation is the body’s response to infection. In this way, inflammation is good. But not always.

There are two different types of inflammation. One type is acute inflammation; The other is chronic. While acute inflammation starts quickly and generally disappears in a few days, chronic inflammation can last for months or years as a result of failure to eliminate the cause and minor, repeated exposure to the agent.
A poor diet, stress, minor food allergies, a sedentary lifestyle and more can contribute to chronic inflammation. Let’s look at how a poor diet can contribute.

What Causes Inflammation?

What researchers believe is that an overactive immune system results in the body being flooded with defense cells and hormones that damage tissues.

Dietary and environmental toxins may build up in the body, turning the immune system on and keeping it highly reactive.
Foods that promote inflammation are:
  • Corn and soybean oils
  • Pasteurized dairy
  • Refined carbohydrates
  • Conventional meat
  • Sugars
  • Trans fats

Anti-Inflammatory Foods

Dr. Edwards points out that anti-inflammatory foods such as fiber, fruits, vegetables and teas have been used to combat cancer, and vitamin E, curcumin, acetylcarnitine and catechin have had positive and preventative effects on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
Foods high in antioxidants help to reduce damage caused by inflammation.

UCLA professor Greg Cole has been looking at how to control inflammation and possibly prevent Alzheimer’s disease with food substances such as curcumin, fruit flavonoids, omega-3 fatty acids and reservatrol.

The Mediterranean diet contains many anti-inflammatory foods and has been shown to lower cholesterol, triglycerides and reduce symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. The diet has also been linked to reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Although it isn’t the focus, most people who go on an anti-inflammatory diet also lose weight.

Tuft University Dr. Andrew Greenberg says, “There is no doubt that if you lose weight, inflammation is dramatically improved.” This is because excess fatty acids circulating in the blood promote the inflammatory immune response.

My Healing Foods diet is also anti-inflammatory in nature. By reducing inflammation, you place your body in a state that is conducive to healing from diseases and other health conditions.

Dr. Nicholas Perricone is one of the leading proponents of the anti-inflammatory diet and has authored several books. He says that “all foods fit into three categories: pro-inflammatory, neutral or anti-inflammatory.”

Some of Perricone’s anti-inflammatory “super-foods” are:
  • Acai fruit
  • Allium vegetables (chives, garlic, leeks, onions, scallions and shallots)
  • Beans and lentils
  • Green foods
  • Hot peppers
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Sprouts
Vegetables
A minimum of 4 to 5 servings per day of beets, carrots, cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and kale), dark, leafy greens (collard greens, kale, spinach), onions, peas, salad greens, sea vegetables and squashes

Fruits
3 to 4 servings per day of apples, blackberries, blueberries, cherries, nectarines, oranges, pears, pink grapefruit, plums, pomegranates, red grapefruit or strawberries

Water
Drink purified water, sparkling water or unsweetened tea throughout the day

Beans and Legumes
1 to 2 servings per day of adzuki beans, black beans, black-eyed peas, chickpeas or lentils

Healthy Fats
5 to 7 servings per day of avocados, expeller-pressed organic canola oil, extra virgin olive oil, flaxseed, hazelnut oil, hemp seeds, high-oleic safflower or sunflower oils, sesame oil or walnut oil

Healthy Herbs and Spices
Unlimited amounts of basil, chili peppers, cinnamon, curry powder, garlic,  ginger, rosemary, turmeric and thyme

Protein
1 to 2 servings per week of eggs, grass-fed meats, natural cheeses, organic poultry or yogurt

Tea
2 to 4 cups of green, oolong or white tea per day

Red Wine
1-2 glasses of organic red wine per day

Supplements
Co-enzyme Q10, carotenoids, fish oil, selenium, vitamins C, D and E

Healthy Sweets
Dark chocolate, fruit sorbet and unsweetened dried fruit

Though there are many grains, such as buckwheat and barley, that are considered anti-inflammatory and are also high in antioxidants and other nutrients, I don’t often recommend people consume large quantities of grains. Grains still turn to sugar in the body faster and are generally less nutrient dense than foods like vegetables.

How to Reduce Inflammation

  1. Eliminate all sources of inflammation from your diet. This includes rancid oils, sugars, conventional meats, pasteurized dairy, trans fats and sugars.
  2. Begin incorporating one new anti-inflammatory food to your diet each day. Don’t be afraid to try new things.
  3. If needed, supplement a healthy diet with 1 Tbsp. of cod liver oil.

How NAET can help with Inflammation

NAET treatments are highly effective at eliminating or reducing inflammation due to reactions to allergies, sensitivities or malabsorption of nutrients.  Inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, inflammatory bowel disease, sinusitis, joint pain often improve just by having your basic nutrients balanced with NAET treatments.
