“When fat was removed from processed foods, sugar was added in. This has led to a massive increase in obesity, diabetes, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, even among children”
This quote and more from an article Dr. Mercola’s website highlights – such points I’ve been bringing up about cholesterol/fat and sugar. Here’s some points to remember and some quotes from the article which I recommend reading if you are concerned about a managing a healthy diet for yourself and your family. Spread the word.
Points regarding Sugar Not Cholesterol
Sugar is a major problem in our society, as it is usually overly consumed leading to weight gain and inflammation – 2 major causative factors in many health problems.
Point #1 – the body converts unused sugar into fat
Low fat diets don’t make sense....

Insurance companies limit healthcare but they don’t have too!
A key aspect to quality healthcare is prevention. Therapeutic modalities like acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, massage, chiropractic and many other alternative practices are underutilized yet hold the keys to maximizing health and prevention. Insurance companies are not providers of healthcare. Medical professionals who spend the face to face time with their patients are the providers. What’s the bottom line? Insurance companies limit healthcare to protect their bottom line. Let’s get personal – I find this upsetting. I have a passion for helping my patients get well and stay healthy. I know I can help but their health insurance limits their access to my services. The following is one scenario that shows how insurance...

Low Fat Diets Are Out! What then?
For decades conventional thinking on a heart-healthy diet emphasized a low fat diet but soon conventional thinking will catch up with reality. Low fat diets are out! We need to emphasize lowering intake of sugar! Foods that break down into sugar tend to be overly processed, loaded with preservatives, poorly dense in nutrition and high in calories. The major culprits are cereal, pasta, bread and grains like rice besides the obvious sweets like cakes and cookies. Even if the package states it’s sugar-free it’s still a processed food with probably some kind of artificial sugar substitute remaining a poor food choice. If it tastes sweet – it’s sweet! Sugar cravings are not the body’s way of asking for more sugar. It’s the body’s way of saying I am missing...

Digestion is a fundamental-beginning to good health. Recognizing signs of digestive problems is a necessity for prevention. When I inquire about eating habits with a patient who has made changes to their diet, often times they have incorrectly eliminated good foods from their diet because such foods caused digestive discomfort. The cause of having such eating difficulties or food intolerances may not be the food but a weakness in digestion. Young children and the elderly are known to have weak digestions and their diets need to be adjusted for optimal digestion. You may notice as you have aged you’re unable to eat the way you did when you were younger. Eating a large meal overwhelms your digestive system leaving you feeling tired, bloated and irritable. Alternatively you may eat an...
