From Dr. Meade
We have all heard that High Fructose Corn Syrup is fine and does not cause a problem in the body. I have always questioned this and wondered why it is in so much of our food. Have you ever noticed it is in bread, soda, and fruit juice? Recently I watched a film titled “King Korn” explaining the corn industry in America and that really got me going on the fructose ban. Please read this article and strive for a better diet with limited fructose. Keep you and your family healthy with reading labels and understanding how food affects your body.
Live Long and Healthy!
Ever wondered what is harmful to you in our modern society?
I loved this article. It so clearly defines what is dangerous and what is tolerable in today’s world.
Some other things we should also be thinking about.
Eat organic whenever possible. Look for the USDA label. Read food product labels. We should all know what we are consuming in our food, just because it is legal does not necessarily mean it is good for our bodies.
Drink clean water and use a container. Using a container for water cuts down on garbage and you have a refreshing drink with you at all times.
I have noticed lately that I have not been paying attention to my own body. I have been taking very good care of my patients but I have been lacking in my own self-care.
Eating has been a big issue lately. I eat on the run, in my car, or I am wolfing through a meal to get what I need done.
I ran across an article talking about nutritional self-care. I learned to get the most from my food, I need to sit down and breathe. Chew my food thoroughly and enjoy what I am eating.
This is a great wake up call for me and I hope that you find this article useful in your life.
Wrist pain is a common aliment seen in my practice.
Most of these patients have been given the diagnosis of carpal tunnel.
Most of these people have worn the splint, taken ibuprofen or another anti-inflammatory, and cortisone shots with little relief.
This article explains “What is Carpal Tunnel?” and how it is effectively treated with acupuncture.
This is well worth the read if you are suffering form wrist pain.
Lately it seems that I have had more stress. I have been having more headaches and Stomach issues, and perhaps a bit more moody. I am running a business and raising a family. These are not things I would ever give up or complain about, but they do add stress. I realized that I might not be managing my stress well. In Massage Today I found this great article about learning how to massage stress. A lot of her suggestions were a great reminder that I need to take time out of my day, to sit, relax, and take care of myself. It will help me a better practitioner, a better mother, and a better partner.
In Chinese Medicine we view food as having properties such as hot, cold, sweet, sour, bitter, etc. Food and diet play an important role in the health of the body.
When a Chinese Medicine Doctor is diagnosing you, you are asked about your diet and appetite, so they can come up with the proper diagnosis and treat accordingly. I have come across some charts that follow the Chinese Medicine properties of food and are very helpful to healthily living.
We all know that sitting all day long is bad for us, but do you know how it affects your body? This chart explains how sitting for long periods of time affects the body and how damaging it can be.
Being a Doctor of Oriental Medicine, I have had many patients that have been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Most commonly their doctors have pushed for invasive and harsh treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation in hopes to prolong their life. But, when is it enough? Are these patients being given the correct information so they, and I, can make the best decision on how to proceed? This article explains that, no, patients are usually not being provided with the options, and information, required to make decisions regarding their healthcare. Money is driving the last days of our lives and we are not in control.
