Dear Readers,

April 2016 issue of TotalHealth.

Welcome to the April 2016 issue of TotalHealth.

TotalHealth welcomes back Ann Louise Gittleman, PhD, CNS, who helps us welcome spring in “Soaking Up the Power of Aromatherapy for Spring Fitness” with effective ways to spring into fitness through the art and science of bathing, especially with the use of essential oils. Bathing reduces stress, eases aching muscles, opens your pores, and gives your skin a healthful glow.

Dallas Clouatre, PhD, reports, “What’s In Your Medicinal Mushrooms?” There has been considerable debate between growers of medicinal mushrooms regarding the proper growing, identification and testing of these health products. As one party has put it, “Medicinal mushrooms are a category that has experienced high growth but few actual quality control standards.” Clouatre goes on to explain that mushrooms actually are divisible into three main components: mycelium, mushroom and spore, and that these components have different benefits when consumed and how the growing methods impact those components.

Gene Bruno, MS, MHS, RH(AGH), describes in “Digestive Enzymes: Making Your Gastrointestinal Tract Happy Again” how the pancreas becomes less effective at secreting the enzymes we need to digest our food effectively as we age. Taking us through the digestive process he includes many of the foods we react to with gas, bloating, etc., Bruno includes suggestions on how to help out our digestive system to remain in top shape.

Jacob E. Teitelbaum, MD, in “Exercise, Friend or Foe In CFS And Fibromyalgia” says this whole area has become very controversial. Not because there is uncertainty about the importance of exercise in any chronic disease. But rather, because there is still a small subset of fools who like to make believe that fibromyalgia is not a “real” disease, we have seen this before when multiple sclerosis used to be called “hysterical paralysis,” read on for Dr. Teitelbaum’s research showing that conditioning helps Fibromyalgia.

Elson M. Haas, MD, presents “A Balanced Exercise Program is Crucial to Good Health .” Promoting that the best “exercise is the one you will do,” and more from Dr. Haas’ upcoming book, “Staying Healthy with NEW Medicine.”

Cell Phones, Hormones and Breast Cancer: Connect the Dots” Sherrill Sellman, ND, discusses how EMFs from our Smart phones penetrate directly into our brain, breaking down the protective blood brain barrier, causing DNA damage, free radical production and even brain tumors. Since the master glands of the body are located in your brain, massive disturbances to the hormonal signaling capacities may be generated from continual cell phone use.

Gloria Gilbère, CDP, DAHom, PhD contributes to a new column called “Healthy Recipes/Healthy Body” you’ll find recipes Gilbère has developed and tested in response to numerous requests from clients. April features Dr. Gloria’s Nightshade-Free Detox Soup (One-dish meal).

Additionally, “New Products” features new products that are available to consumers. Carlson Labs new vitamin Men’s Omega Multi, a Hard-Working Multivitamin is featured this month.

In Pet Care, Shawn Messonnier, DVM, presents “German Chamomile.” Chamomile is useful for pets with nervousness and anxiety. However Dr. Messonnier does not recommend it for all pets.

Dear Readers,

February 2016 issue of Total Health Online. Happy Valentines Day!

In “Heart Matters,” Dallas Clouatre, PhD, discusses statins and the “one major weakness in the use of statins for cardiovascular health, aside from the rather weak statistical basis, is that the evidence does not seem to support the argument that their benefits are derived from lowering cholesterol levels, either total cholesterol or LDL-C.”

Sherrill Sellman, ND, “The Rejuvenated Woman Learning The Code To Growing Younger” speaks from personal experience—how you think about aging and the effect that thinking has on your physical aging—a new approach to growing older while staying younger.

Reinforcing the mantra “You are what you eat.”

Dr. Teitelbaum a sufferer himself gives information and help through his own experience with extensive research he and others have done on CFS and Fibromyalgia.

In "A Natural Solution to Better Sleep" from Leon Lack, PhD. we learn more about re-timing your body clock. This articles discusses dealing with insomnia without drugs.

Carmia Borek, PhD, discusses the benefits of Aged Garlic Extract™ in protecting against cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative disease, some forms of cancer.

Gene Bruno, MS, MHS, RH(AGH), presents the other side of the statin coin in “Reducing Cholesterol With Nutraceuticals.” Presenting nutraceuticals that can be used to address the health concerns that have caused the astronomical growth of statin prescriptions, one of the current favorites of western medicine.

In Pet Care Part Two, Shawn Messonnier, DVM, presents “Bladder Infections In Pets.” The focus is on cats. You’ll find a recipe for cat food specifically for cats with bladder infections and as always Messonnier recommends consulting with your vet when the signs of infection appear.

Note to readers You may find a difference of opinion between the this last article and that of Dallas Clouatre in the earlier “Health Matters” total health reminds readers this does occasionally occur but we feel the information in both articles is valuable.

In “Five Health Resolutions For 2016,” Dallas Clouatre, PhD, offers a different approach to resolutions, suggesting a change in our habits from eating breakfast everyday, morning exercise and sunshine, choose dietary fats wisely, eating more vegetables and old fashioned over fast and prepared foods.

In “Goal Setting For The Year Ahead,” Elly McGuinness, B PhEd, presents goals to be approached from a psychological versus the physiological point of view.

Gene Bruno, MS, MHS, RH(AGH), presents “Using Fiber And Protein To Control Your Appetite.” Explaining the two—fiber and protein—or more specifically, a certain type of fiber and protein. This helps us all in our efforts to control appetite and achieve satiety.

Gloria Gilbère, CDP, DA Hom, PhD, focus is “Begin The New Year With A Full-Tank Of Wellness.” The health benefits of water and the problems that may arise with dehydration.

Jacob E. Teitelbaum, MD, in “Simplifying Nutritional Support In CFS And Fibromyalgia,” continues his theme on helping CFS/Fibromyalgia sufferers by sharing his solutions. He suggests beginning with the diet, making sure the intake of salt and water are sufficient and lists vitamins and supplements which are found to be beneficial for CFS and fibromyalgia patients.

In “Choose Healthy Foods to Prevent Disease” Karen V. Unger, MSW, EdD, states our choices are critical.

She recommends eating consciously, and choosing food with your long-term health in mind because it has the potential to prevent disease and extend your lifespan.

Alessandra Felice, ND Dip CNM, believes in “Food As Medicine.” The type of cooking method is very significant to avoid nutrients losses. Steaming for short amounts of time, blanching, quick sautéing in nonstick-pans are the most beneficial while frying, grilling, boiling for long periods, baking at very high temperature promotes dietary depletion and development of toxins harmful for the human body.

Carmia Borek, PhD, reports “Aged Garlic Extract (AGE KyolicTM) Helps Protect Against Overweight, Metabolic Syndrome and Heart Disease” includes many of the health benefits of AGE—backed by clinical studies.

December Pet Care, Shawn Messonnier, DVM, presents “Bladder Infections In Pets.” While suggesting canned food due to the water content is best for animals with bladder infections Messonnier recommends consulting with your vet when the signs of infection appear.

Beginning with Brad King's, MS, MFS, "Feed Your Eyesight" the focus is on our eyes and why they are so important and in need of proper care and nutrition. Millions of people around the world suffer from various eye disorders like cataracts (blurred vision, due to the eye lens becoming progressively opaque), and macular degeneration (a deterioration of the macula, the small central portion of the retina). Diet plays an important role in every cell in your body and eye cells are no different.

In "The Liver, A Key Digestive Organ" Dallas Clouatre, PhD, gives us a full review on the function of the liver. We often don't refer to the liver when planning our diets however, after considering what Clouatre has to say you are sure to give the liver and its functions the respect it deserves.

We're continuing to learn more about the stimulating effects of blue wavelength light and its capacity to disrupt sleep. Exposure to artificial light at night is recognized as a hazard to sleep.

We begin with Christine Horner, MD, on the cover and contributor of “Twelve Tips To Lower Your Risk Of Breast Cancer.” Dr. Horner culled thousands of medical research and studies to find what was the cause of the increase in the number of women, young and old, coming to her plastic surgery practice for reconstructive surgery resulting from breast cancer surgery.

Uridine For The Brain, Sports And Beyond by Dallas Clouatre, PhD. Uridine is one of the reasons that fish is known as “brain food” and brewer’s yeast is recognized for its health benefits. Clouatre explores research and food sources of Uridine and describes how this supplement is absorbed into the body, for energy in the brain and for energy by athletes.

Elson M. Haas, MD, counsels men in “Male Aging, Hormone Support, And Prostate Health” on the aging process in general for men, looks at testosterone and hormonal changes, and then focuses on maintaining prostate health and sexual function over the later years. Haas reminds men they each have their own genetics and biological clocks. Hopefully, if we play our cards right with healthy habits, understanding our risks and disease potentials, we can outlive our parents and ancestors.

In “How Exercise Improves Brain Function—At Any Age,” Karen V. Unger, MSW, Ed.D alerts us on the importance of exercise. How healthy exercise is for the brain and other organs in the body. It is enough to encourage us all to put on the walking shoes and go take a walk.

In her first article in Total Health speech therapist, Gwen Griffin, MA, CCC-SLP “Swallow, Cough, Sputter—Could You Have A Swallowing Disorder?” educates us on a process that most of us take for granted as much as we do breathing.

Another first time Total Health Online author Veronika Polozkova “Sensations, Eating Habits And Healthy Diet,” describes another process that we also take for granted. It’s interesting to read how food producers “play with our food” before serving it to us.

Dennis Goodman, MD, FACC, FACP, FCCP contributes “Vitamin K2: The Missing Nutrient for Heart and Bone Health.” Why is vitamin K2 so valuable? “Simply put, vitamin K2 is the body’s light switch. It activates or “turns on” important proteins in the body such as osteocalcin for strong bones and the matrix Gla protein (MGP) in the arteries and blood vessels. By turning on these vitamin K2 dependent proteins, calcium is kept out of the arteries (where it can cause hardening of arteries and blockages) and transported and kept in the bones where it belongs.”

Herbal Teas For Detoxification,” Gene Bruno, MS, MHS, RH(AGH) teas discussed include ginger root (rhizome), green tea, dandelion root and senna. Bruno informs us of the role that each of these herbal teas can play, including a subsequent explanation of how to use them as part of a detox program.

In Realizing the Health Benefits of Broccoli Supplements Dallas Clouatre, PhD, explains the process of the body’s digestion of broccoli and makes us aware of a supplement that delivers the most physiologically active compound that is derived by this ingestion.

Torkos offers advice on treating UTIs, controlling the frequencies and natural therapies available.

Natural Solutions For Chronic Pain, David Foreman, RPh, shares that he has had chronic pain along with almost one-third of all Americans. He defines chronic pain and names several natural substances which can be used to alleviate it.

Vitamin B12 Gene Bruno, MS, MHS RH(AGH) explains vitamin B12 updates. Bruno states, “Originally its delivery form was limited to capsules and tablets, but subsequently a sublingual (i.e. under the tongue) delivery form also became available. Following that, a coenzyme form of vitamin B12, known as methylcobalamin, was introduced and presented as a superior form over the commonly used cyanocobalamin form of vitamin B12. These various options have created some confusion over which delivery form and nutrient form are best to use. Add to this the fact that some individuals are more prone to vitamin B12 deficiency, and the confusion is compounded. This article provides clarification on these issues surrounding vitamin B12.”
