The Dangers of Fluoride

photo used under a creative commons license, flickr user shermeee Most of us are exposed to fluoride on a daily basis, whether it’s in our dental care products, prescription medications (it’s one of the basic ingredients in Prozac) or the water we drink, cook with, and bathe in. Fluoride is marketed as being the “key to preventing tooth decay”, but what we aren’t told is that fluoride has never been approved by the FDA and does NOT meet “requirements of safety and effectiveness.” But there’s more that we aren’t told, fluoride may also cause extensive damage to our bodies.

Eating Disorders in Older Women

  photo used under a creative commons license Recently, there has been an increase in the number of older women that display symptoms of disordered eating.  Although this segment of the population appears to be having issues that are very similar to those seen in younger women (body dysmorphia, seemingly uncontrollable eating, yoyo dieting, etc.) they may not be showing up for treatment.  In my practice, I usually see them “indirectly” or in the role as parent rather than a patient.  It is becoming all too common to have a patient describe her mother’s issues with food as being a part of her problem.  From parents that engage in bingeing to moms that are obviously restricting, the problems run the ...

Nutritional Benefits of Adzuki Beans

photo used under a creative commons license While shopping at Whole Foods Market I discovered a “new to me” food, adzuki beans (pronounced “azuki”). I haven’t seen these beans in stores before, so I had to find out if adzuki beans have any health benefits over other beans. Here’s what I’ve found out! Adzuki beans are grown in East Asia. They are traditionally used for both sweet and savory dishes in East Asia. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, adzuki beans are believed to clear toxins from the body, clear heat from the body, reduce abdominal fullness and swelling due to edema, disperse blood statis, and improve jaundice. Adzuki beans are also high in iron, making it a good food for those ...
