Healthy by Nature radio show this week
I’m so pleased that Dr. Frank King will return to continue our discussion about the homeopathic approach to common problems. I will ask about shingles, skin tags and gout. He is a naturopath, chiropractor and author of The Healing Revolution: Eight Essentials to Awaken Abundant Life, Naturally as well as the founder of KingBio. Note, KingBio is not a sponsor of the show (but I wish they were). We open the show with returning guest Hamilton Cabanilla an educator with Enzymedica. He can help with so many questions about digestion like these: What makes certain foods more difficult to digest than others? How to keep big meals from making us tired?
As we’ve now been told by a wide range of experts including the World Health Organization (WHO), excess added sugar contributes significantly to not just obesity and diabetes, but also to many other conditions including arthritis, cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer’s. They are talking about added sugar which is hidden in something like 80% of processed foods…even in places you might not think to look like salad dressings, baloney and pizza. The WHO says we should aim for just 6 teaspoons of added sugar a day. (Oops, one candy bar can zap you with 7 teaspoons and one 20 ounce Coke contains 16.) In today’s blog I discuss the problems specifically linked to fructose and how to limit intake. Click here to read the article.
Last Week Follow-up
Pharmacist, Certified Clinical Nutritionist and author, Ross Pelton elaborated on a discussion we started in September about his article on the new female sexual enhancement drug—the pink pill, the so-called “female Viagra”. (He also has articleon a new safe method of contraception.) Then, with the holidays approaching, we discussed how to limit the damage of holiday food-related events do to our digestion (e.g. heartburn), immune function and probiotic health. Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics are a great asset in that regard.
