Free radical damage are killing the cells in our bodies, causing greater risk of
cardiovascular disease, cancer and ACCELERATED AGING ! [ L.J. Machlin and A. Bendich, The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (1987) ]

Americans are spending billions in anti-oxidants and dietsprograms to fight free radicals.

But let’s face it, each one of us is different with unique physical dynamics.
There is no we can guess whether our vitamins and antioxidants are working  effectively for our own needs—we need our own personalized game plan.

So,  WHY TEST for FREE RADICALS ?
“Revelar’s measurement system is the gold standard
for measuring free radical damage. There is a lot of speculation and
subjective information floating out there in the market.  With the REVELAR free radical analyser we can accurately determine whether what you are doing is working and enable OUR patients to improve their health
and understand why it’s improving,”

Anti-inflammatory Diet Tips

fruit_medley

Can the Foods You Eat Make a Difference in Chronic Pain?
You may be familiar with the anti-inflammatory medications, but have you heart of anti-inflammatory foods? The foods you eat really do have an affect on how you feel.

What is Inflammation?
Inflammation is defined as a localized reaction of tissue to irritation, injury, or infection.
Symptoms of inflammation include pain, swelling, red coloration to the area, and sometimes loss of movement or function. We commonly think of inflammation as the painful component of arthritis. Inflammation is also a component of chronic diseases such as heart disease and strokes.

Medical Anti-Inflammatory Treatments
Common medical anti-inflammatory treatments include rest, light exercise, weight maintenance, stretching, and medications designed to reduce the inflammation and control the pain.

These medications include Non Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs), steroid medications, and perhaps ultimately joint replacement surgery.

Avoid Pro-Inflammatory Foods
Pro-inflammatory foods will increase inflammation, increase your pain from the inflammation and may also raise your risk for chronic disease. Loading up on junk foods, high-fat meats, sugar and fast foods will increase inflammation in your body.

This is partially due to the unhealthy fats used in preparing and processing these foods, especially trans fats and saturated fats. Processed meats such as lunch meats, hot dogs and sausages contain chemicals such as nitrites that are associated with increased inflammation and chronic disease.

Saturated fats are also found in meats, dairy products and eggs. While all of these foods are important source of minerals and vitamins, you don’t need the extra saturated fat. These foods also contain fatty acids called arachidonic acid.

While some arachidonic acid is essential for your health, too much arachidonic acid in the diet may make your inflammation worse.

Be sure to choose low fat milk and cheese and lean cuts of meat, which will not promote inflammation.

Diets high in sugar have also been associated with inflammation, obesity and chronic disease such as diabetes. Eliminate high sugar foods such as sodas, soft drinks, pastries, presweetened cereals and candy.

Another possible source of irritation comes from the nightshade family of plants.

What Are Nightshades?
Tomatoes, white potatoes, red and green bell peppers, the “hot” peppers such as chili and paprika, as well as eggplant belong to the Nightshade Family, a botanical genus called Solanaceae species.
This species also includes tobacco, poisonous belladonna, and the toxic plants herbane, mandrake, and jimson weeds.

Whole fruits and vegetables are important to eat for their vitamins, minerals, and natural antioxidants, however some vegetables like potatoes, tomatoes, and eggplant may actually make pain from inflammation worse.

These vegetables are part of the nightshade family of plants and contain a chemical alkaloid called solanine. Solanine can trigger pain in some people.

Choose Anti-Inflammatory Foods
Adding foods that reduce inflammation will improve how you feel and help to decrease your risk for chronic diseases. Here are some suggestions.

Fats and Oils
The right types of fats in your diet will impact pain and inflammation in a positive way. Omega-3 essential fatty acids are very powerful anti-inflammatory agents.

They are found in cold water oily fish, walnuts, flax seeds, canola oil and pumpkin seeds.

Adding omega-3 fatty acid supplements from Nordic Naturals fish oil may also help reduce inflammation, pain and promote healing.

Healthy oils include Coconut, Macadamia oil, rice bran oil, grape seed oil, walnut oil and Olive oil.

It is very important to avoid any saturated fats and oils such as: hydrogenated oils or partially hydrogenated oils. These oils will increase inflammation in the body and can contribute to several different health disorders,

Protein
Your body needs protein to build healthy body tissues. Good protein sources include lean poultry, fish and seafood, nuts, legumes and seeds.

Red meats may trigger inflammation, so cut back on fatty red meats. When you do eat red meat, choose lean cuts of bison, venison and other game meats, or the lowest-fat cuts of beef, preferably grass-fed beef.

fruit and veggies2
Carbohydrates and Fiber
Most of your carbohydrates should come from vegetables and fruits. These are excellent sources of fiber, and a high fiber diet will reduce your inflammation.

Choose green leafy vegetables, green and brightly colored vegetables and lots of fresh whole fruits.
You should eat at least five and preferably more servings of fruits and vegetables each day.

Green vegetables and whole fruits are also important as sources of dietary fiber.

Berries are also a great food choice, especially blueberries and strawberries which are packed with anti-inflammatory phytochemical’s and anti-oxidants.

The pigments in brightly colored fruits, vegetables and berries contain many phytochemicals that have anti-inflammatory properties. One example is quercetin, which is found in apple and red onion skins and has strong anti-inflammatory properties.

Ask Dr. Trudeau about New Greens or Greens First products. These 2 products contain several fruits, vegetables and additional compounds that can reduce inflammation, promote good health and reduce the acidity in the body which also contributes to inflammation in the body.

Healthy Beverages
Your body needs water day. The simplest and best form of water is distilled water (make sure you are also taking a good multi mineral supplement) or purified drinking water. The best water in Washington county can be purchased at Water 2 Go.

“Food Allergies and/or Food Sensitivities
Some people believe that allergy-like reactions to foods may increase inflammation and pain. These type of “food allergies” may make pain and inflammation worse. The underlying problem may be due to faulty digestion or excessive consumption of any particular food. Most any food that is consumed more than four days a week can be suspected as a possible allergen, but some of the more common allergic foods are milk and dairy, wheat, corn, eggs, beef, yeast and soy.

Even healthy foods can cause problems if you are sensitive to them. There are certain types of tests that can be performed, or elimination diets that can be undertaken to determine the problem foods.

Anti-inflammatory Diet Tips
Over all, when you are choosing anti-inflammatory foods to help reduce your inflammation and pain, choose fresh foods instead of heavily processed foods.

Here are some tips:

 Breakfast could be oatmeal served with fresh berries and walnuts, with a cup of almond or rice milk.

 Snack on whole fruits, nuts, seeds, and fresh vegetables throughout the day instead of cookies and candy.

 Eat more fish and less fatty red meat.

 Stay away from deep fried foods and bake or stir fry your meals instead.

 Choose green, orange, and yellow vegetables for your side dishes.

 Drink plenty of water, fresh 100 percent fruit and vegetable juices, herbal teas and green tea.

Better Vision with Yellow Veggies

squash
Corn and squash may soon have a boost in sales because of a recent study in the Archives of Ophthalmology. Researchers discovered that carotenoids (the components which give these vegetables their yellow appearance) may reduce the risk of age-related vision loss.

In a study performed at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, 1,787 women between the ages of 50 and 79 were recruited four to seven years after they initially participated in the Women’s Health Initiative Observational Study. Using the original study as a baseline, researchers evaluated the participants for the prevalence of vision loss. The risk of developing vision loss declined substantially in women who included a stable intake of carotenoids, specifically “lutein” and “zeaxanthin,” in their diets.

Although the researchers feel it is necessary to conduct further studies on the subject, they also note that their findings constitute a good reason to add more vegetables to your diet.

About Standard Process: Whole Food Supplements

fruit and veggies2

**In our office we use Standard Process products. A company that strives and is the leader in producing natural whole food supplements.

Through years of extensive study in the field of nutrition, Dr. Royal Lee believed that the best natural sources of vitamins and minerals are found in whole foods.

His research led to the development of concentrated food supplements uniquely processed to preserve the maximum nutrients of the whole food. Today, this whole food philosophy is reflected in all of the product formulas produced by Standard Process .

Dr. Lee’s theories have been proven by the successful use of Standard Process products by health-care professionals for over 70 years. Dr. Lee’s relatives, the Du Bois family, are the third generation to own and operate Standard Process and continued division of Dr. Lee by providing the best in whole food supplements now and into the future.

NATURALLY GROWN.
The quality of nutritional supplements hinges on the quality of the raw materials they are made from. That’s why Standard Process grows many of the raw materials used in our products on company owned, organically certified farmland in Palmer, Wisconsin. On the rich Midwestern topsoil of Wisconsin’s Kettle Moraine, grown crops are laden with nutrition.

Standard Process begins by testing the mineral and nutrition levels of the soil. Then, planting only organic seeds and nurturing them through the growing season. This creates a natural balance of the nutrients and minerals in every plant harvested for our unique products. The whole food goodness in our supplements truly starts with the sun, water, and fertile soil.

CAPTURING NATURES BOUNTY.
After harvesting, Standard Process uses exclusive, patented separation and extraction processes and unique low temperature, vacuum drying methods to insure that the nutrients remain intact with all the goodness that nature has provided. These techniques retain the nutrients in their whole forms, complete with the essential components-known as natural synergists-that allow your body to naturally unlock their health-promoting properties.

Unlike mass-produced products containing high concentrations of only a few nutrients, Standard Process products provide quality nutrients in natural forms readily absorbed by your body. The term “potency” is not synonymous with the term “quantity”. It is the quality of these nutrients, rather than the quantity, that determines potency.

QUALITY GOODNESS IN EACH PRODUCT.
