Dear Friends, It was the spring of 2002 when I first launched Healthy Living Magazine. As scary as it was to approach my first couple of advertisers (now my friends) I dug deep within myself and fought through all the negative beliefs and self doubts. I stuck with it, made some mistakes along the way, but I can honestly say that I am doing what I love. And now realize I am  doing my life’s work! I have been blessed tremendously and I have experienced such growth and healing along the way. Not to mention the opportunity to work with such great healers like Dr. Bernie Siegel, Dr. Joan Borysenko, Deepak Chopra, Dr. Andrew Weil, Mark Mincolla and now, Alberto Villoldo. As we approach our 10th anniversary this September 2012, I think back about the wonderful resource that I created, built up from the foundation, planting seeds along the way while watching them grow. What an accomplishment.  I am so proud to continually strive to provide an arena for the interchange of ideas and experiences, by which I hope to inform, nurture, and inspire each and everyone’s health and well being.   Well, I’m proud to share with you the next phase of growth: Healthy Living Magazine Goes Virtual! Each month my readers will find valuable resource on health & fitness information, tips, tools, expert advice and support. We hope that HL MAG becomes your go-to guide to a healthy life style.  Available right at your finger tips, we have implemented an easy to use interface that allows our readers to search for a service or practitioner and link directly from the magazine to a practitioners’ website.  Check it out on-line today and subscribe to receive our monthly e-Magazine at So, do what you feel, despite your fears and doubts; the end result is always something spectacular. Feel the fear and do it anyway, as they say. Let your heart make up your mind and wonderful things happen. I may not be financially rich, but I am rich with wonderful friends, personal growth opportunities, being at home with my children and helping people on the road to better heath and wellness. When you have enough nothing is lacking. Special thanks to my dear family and to Virginia Just . . . for putting up with my late nights . . . and helping me stay true to my vision.

Stop seeing the world through gray-smudged glasses. Our lives are like flowing rivers: When we try to control their course, we merely flail about until we’re swept under the waters that are heavy with silt, which is the toxic residue of our psychological and karmic wounding. Having no idea how to clean the silt up, we drink it in, and it chokes us—leaving us thirsting for a clean, clear stream to help us thrive. We fight the current, yet we never clean the river. That is, we continue to attract people and situations that mirror our toxicity. We find that the more angry we are, the more we have to be angry about. The more abandoned we feel, the more we’re attracted to others who abandon those they care about. Unfortunately, none of our struggling helps us in the slightest. We’re eventually left with nothing living in our river: no dreams, no hopes, no love, no passion, and no self-respect. And our waters don’t bring life to anything on our shores, so the end result is a dead zone around us where nothing flourishes.

Western psychology tells us that we have to install sewage-treatment plants and filtration systems to make our water drinkable once again. For the Earthkeepers, nothing could be further from the truth: They believe that the river cleans itself once we start feeding it crystalline water rather than pumping poisons into it. Then we can go with the flow wherever it takes us, trusting that the river knows what the best destination for us is. Once our waters flow clean, we don’t have to search for our destiny; it’s been there all along, waiting for us to turn our river into a stream of nourishment and passion.

When you start pouring beauty into your river, you’ll find that the waters are becoming clearer every day. For example, the people who used to push your buttons will drift away— when you meet someone who would have irritated you in the past, you’ll feel no desire to engage in battle with them. Likewise, you’ll lose interest in

venting and be unmotivated to whip up anger or outrage. The situations that you once found overwhelmingly depressing or infuriating will simply become situations. You won’t judge them as good or bad, or empowering or crippling, because you’ll know that facts are always in a state of flux, even when it looks as if they’re static. You’ll remember that your life will arrange itself to mirror your healthy, unpolluted condition. To practice beauty, you must give up the ugly stories in which someone is a victim and someone else is the perpetrator. You must stop seeing the world through gray-smudged glasses, declaring that everyone and everything is coming up short of your expectations. You have to let go of cynicism and apathy and find hope and possibility in all people and situations. This is especially hard to do in a culture that greatly values clever expressions of cynicism and declares that ugliness is truth, and the truth is ugly. Talk-show hosts, political pundits, and snide bloggers all revel in their ability to expose the “truth” about how no one can be trusted, there’s

nothing to believe in, and all of our heroes are actually fools and frauds. Soon we find ourselves thinking this way, too, finding conspiracies everywhere. Believing in beauty starts to seem naïve and childish rather than wise and refreshingly childlike. Our river becomes so thick with stories about good guys and bad guys that we can’t see the bottom for all the muck. Practicing beauty means recognizing what is pure and of value in every situation and every person. It means that even when your neighbor has done you a terrible wrong and is full of venom, you still love him as yourself, for you see in him the potential for being a better person and the part that was once a loving child. (You may have to squint very, very hard to discover such beauty amidst the ugliness, but it is always there, in any human.) You may have to guard yourself from your neighbor until such time as he’s able to see that beauty in himself and begin acting in a beautiful way. Nevertheless, the moment you choose to see beauty is the moment you empower yourself to rise above the ugliness and let go of the stories that are clogging your river.

Eating Well Reprinted from The Farmers' Market Cookbook (2009)

by Color

In the last couple of decades, scientists have discovered more reasons (beyond vitamins and fiber) to pack your diet with fruits and vegetables: phytochemicals. All plants contain these compounds, which protect them from a variety of dangers—from harmful UV rays to predatory pests. We take in phytochemicals when we eat fruits and vegetables and, as it turns out, they protect us too. Some act as antioxidants, mopping up unstable “free radical” molecules that can damage cells and lead to the development of heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s and other health issues. Others work by boosting the immune system. What’s fascinating is that nature seems to have a way of highlighting these beneficial nutrients by giving them bright colors that allow you to spot them at a glance. For example, anthocyanins make blueberries blue and may help to keep your mind sharp. Tomatoes get their ruby hue from lycopene, a phytochemical that may help to prevent prostate cancer. To get the maximum disease-fighting power that phytochemicals can provide, choose foods that represent all colors of the rainbow. The USDA suggests paying particular attention to orange and red (5 1/2 cups per week) and dark green (1 1/2 cups per week) produce, both good sources of vitamin A and other important nutrients. On page 9 is a chart illustrating the varieties of foods available.

Every Day Red Orange

Red foods, such as tomatoes and watermelon, contain lycopene, a phytochemical that may help protect against prostate and breast cancers.

Alpha and beta carotene make foods like carrots and sweet potatoes so brilliantly orange. The body converts these compounds into the active form of vitamin A, which helps keep your eyes, bones and immune system healthy. These phytochemicals also operate as antioxidants, sweeping up disease-promoting free radicals.

Yellow & Green part 1 (leafy greens)

Green part 2 (cruciferous)

Many yellow and green vegetables are good sources of lutein and zeaxanthin, phytochemicals that accumulate in the eyes and help prevent age-related macular degeneration, a leading cause of blindness in older people. Leafy greens are also rich in beta carotene.

Cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli and kale, provide compounds called indoles and isothiocyanates, which may help prevent cancer by amping up the production of enzymes that clear toxins from the body.

sound and the reason they are used at the beginning of a meditation is to give one the perspective of going from sound into silence. When the Tingsha are struck together the sound reverberates in the room and slowly the vibration dissipates until you are left with silence.  When the sound from the Tingsha is allowed to dissipate in a natural way

it is calming, but when you grab the Tingsha to abruptly stop the sound it has a very different effect. In the first instance the sound gently dissolves into the silence but the opposite is true if the Tingsha are grabbed.  When we want to touch silence it should be approached gently not abruptly.  Trying to touch silence by arresting our thoughts, leads to disharmony.  To touch silence is to touch the space that holds your thoughts. It is not necessary to push your thoughts aside to experience this space, your thoughts are merely objects within the silence.  If you want to continued on page 12 . . .

oneness of life and as individuals we experience this space in unique ways. It is difficult to just be with an experience as we are accustomed to involving ourselves and our preconceived notions and ideas in every experience, yet, being with whatever experience occurs while touching silence is all that is necessary for you to benefit from the infinite wisdom and knowledge that is there.  It may seem to you that nothing is happening, that there is only void and emptiness in this silent space as we are so used to physical reality and the immediate perceptible result of such experiences, in contrast, the seemingly indiscernible consequence of touching this space is profoundly significant.What you will experience while in this silent space is a world beyond the limitations of physical reality, you will truly enter a new world that is limitless and

experience the Ocean, you don’t need to push the fish aside, they can be there while you experience the Ocean. If you try to gather all of the fish to clear the Ocean you will cause disharmony in the Ocean, but if you gently approach the water and know that now and again a fish will swim by, you can keep your attention on the Ocean. By letting your thoughts float by while keeping your attention on the silence, you will touch that infinite space, the silence beyond the sound.  Imagine the blue sky as the infinite silent space and clouds as your thoughts.  Keeping your attention on the blue sky you will begin to sense the vastness of that space. This silence is the source of knowledge, wisdom and infinite possibilities.  As we tune-in to the silent space, we touch the

boundless. As I ventured into the silence for the first time I did so with expectation and apprehension. I soon found that unless I did as Master Kim had taught, my efforts would be futile.  Indeed his words echo in my ears to this day, “Just be there with the silence, nothing more, nothing less”.   Experience the silence beyond the sound, approach it gently, letting go of any expectations or results. Ed Williamson is one of those rare people who have chosen to walk the true spiritual path of self-knowing and realization. The spiritual path is something that is talked about by many and dabbled in by some, yet very few dedicate themselves to the enormous commitment and courage it takes to walk this path. Ed's path of enlightenment has graced him with the gift of spiritual wisdom, healing and teachings.

Be consistent with this measurement daily. As you increase your daily activity, you increase the amount of calories you are burning, plain and simple. It's fun to track this information and is a clear indication of the amount of movement you really do get throughout your day. If you are on the move and busy burning calories, then chances are you are minimizing activities that make you store calories such as over eating and leading a sedentary lifestyle. So, keep on walking! Keep on moving! Disclaimer: All information and answers are given for educational purposes only. Your individual needs may vary.

measuring the amount of physical activity you achieve on a daily basis. You can measure the distance that you move throughout a given day in terms of miles or steps. Steps provide the most accurate measurement of your daily distance covered. The fact that taller people will cover more distance taking fewer steps than a person with a shorter stride makes measuring the amount of steps the best and most accurate for an individual. To accurately measure your stride length, simply measure off a distance of 20 feet (240 inches). Then count how many strides it takes to cover that distance and divide that number into 240. For example, if it took you 12 strides to cover this distance your stride length would be 20 inches. Most people take anywhere from 2,000 to 5,000 steps per day. The Surgeon General recommends that people get a minimum of 30 minutes of physical activity per day, which is roughly 10,000 steps per day (approximately 4 to 5 miles). This amount has been shown to help lower blood pressure, decrease body fat and increase aerobic fitness levels. This gives you a very realistically achievable goal to attain on a daily basis.

Dr. Bernie Siegel An Evening of Miracles Join us Thursday December 1st 6:30–8:30pm for this very special event

by Dr. Bernie Seigel

I shared a story with a man

once about an accident I had when I stepped off my roof and my ladder broke. I told him that I had no explanation for why I wasn’t killed or seriously injured. The man told me that I had a guardian angel. He then said he knew my angel’s name, so of course I asked him, “What’s his name?” “What did you say when the ladder broke and you fell off the roof?” the man asked. “I said, Oh Shit!” “That’s his name,” the man replied. I can’t tell you how many times in the midst of disaster I have yelled out my angel’s name and ended up laughing, avoiding disaster after all, because of how relaxed I became at that moment. Relaxation is a powerful tonic for the body and mind. Humor can definitely bring on a sense of relaxation, and so can doing something that makes you lose track of time, losing all awareness of physical and emotional problems. There is only one thing you can control—your thoughts. You can control how you choose to react to things that happen in your life

involving other people. You also can control your response to physical afflictions, whether they are acute or chronic. By controlling your reactions to the people and events you encounter in life, you establish a rhythm. Rhythm varies from person to person. Some like a loud, fastpaced life while others want a slower, quieter environment. Find your unique rhythm. What sounds and pace improve your feelings? What can you identify around you that robs you of a sense of comfort and peace? Discover your pace and live it. Life may be a marathon, but you don’t have to finish first to be a winner. Every child and animal knows a truth that somehow is lost to us as we get older. This all important truth is Today Is The Only Day That Exists. The future is unknown and we are here to enjoy the day. If we destroy our days with fear and worry about things that most likely will never actually happen, our body is in a protection mode and not growth and repair. Instead, relax bydoing something that makes you lose track of time—you will find that you also lose all awareness of physical and emotional problems.

You will find yourself in a state of true relaxation. No matter what circumstances you live in, take my wife’s excellent advice: “Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first.” “Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight.” and “Never argue with a woman when she is tired, or rested.” Dr. Bernie Siegel has touched many lives all over our planet. In 1978 he began talking about patient empowerment and the choice to live fully and die in peace. As a physician who has cared for and counseled innumerable people whose mortality has been threatened by illness, Bernie embraces a philosophy of living and dying that stands at the forefront of the medical ethics and spiritual issues our Society grapples with today. Dr. Bernie Siegel a sought-after speaker and media presence, is the author of many books including the blockbuster “Love, Medicine, and Miracles; Peace, Love, and Healing; and 365 Prescriptions for the Soul.” And now, introducing Bernie Siegel’s new title, “A Book of Miracles”, with inspiring true stories of healing, gratitude and love.

12 Edible Flowers

Sit back. Enjoy your festivities. Add beauty and enchantment to your special event. 

The purple blooms make a stunning garnish for cakes and champagne, and add a sweet floral flavor to sauces.

The big yellow blooms from zucchini, pumpkin, and other squash plants are abundant this time of year. They look funkysweet stuffed in a small bubble vase or served up on a platter. They taste mildly of the veggies they come from and are wonderful when washed, cleaned of their stamens, stuffed with cheese, and fried.



you can grow at home. What they taste like and how to use edible flowers in a variety of ways. by Jaime Morrison Curtis


The taste of the petals is similar to saffron and they add a sunny yellow hue to soups, pastas, and rice or just sprinkled on a salad.

Chrysanthemums Pull the petals off and blanch them to add a tangy, peppery flavor to salads and stir frys.


Pick them when they are young, before they get bitter (low to the ground and the size of a marble), then sprinkle on salads or rice (raw or steamed) to add a sweet honey flavor.

Cornflower The stunning blue of these flowers is a natural food dye and they add a slight clove-like flavor, though they are most often used as a lovely garnish.

Romantic, nostalgic and personal items create unforgettable event experiences.

The base is bitter, but the petals are sweet, ideal for decorating cakes and petit-fours.

are coming out about how good exercise is for the body. In a general sense, it’s healthy because it removes stagnation: blood, oxygen, waste, and nutrients can freely flow unobstructed to get where they need to be when we start moving around. Movement is an excellent therapy for clearing blocks not only in our  body, but also in our energy (chakra) system, especially when coupled with nourishing foods for these energy centers.

Allow your true feelings to flow through your sacral chakra with the conduit of water: try swimming, water aerobics, or a steam sauna.

Here are some ideas of how to get the best out of your movement for your chakras:

Is your heart heavy? Circulate

Feeling ungrounded? Stimulate your root chakra with exercises that require the lower part of your body: whether running, walking, squatting, doing floor exercises, dancing.

Do you feel more controlled by stress than you are in-powered to be your sunny self? Enliven your solar plexus and reduce your stress with the balance of harmonizing exercises such as yoga, tai chi, qi gong.

the love in the heart chakra territory by supercharging with some aerobic exercise.

Do you feel like you can’t speak your truth, that your tongue is tied? Let your throat chakra voice itself through the clarity of sound: chanting or singing in the shower or car can help you find your authentic self.

Do you feel disconnected, unplugged, and depressed? Connect to the whole of life by praying, setting intentions, and giving gratitude in every moment. Deanna Minich, PhD, CN, is a nutritionist who sees more to food than calories and macronutrients. She blends cutting-edge nutrition information, quantum physics, and the ancient chakra system to guide others to use foods and eating as tools for spiritual growth and nourishment for the soul.

The stability ball, a.k.a.

the body ball, physio ball, exercise ball, swiss ball and “Resist-a-Ball,” has most certainly been established as a staple in today’s exercise world. Ball training originated as a mode for rehabilitation in Europe, becoming popular here in the U.S. in the 60s. It’s here to stay. No home gym or public fitness facility should be without at least one unit of this most versatile and effective piece of exercise equipment. The ball is relatively inexpensive, yet your return on the investment is astronomical. There are many exercises that can be done on the ball for weight loss, strength conditioning, balance, toning, core stabilization, muscle building, muscular endurance,

giving you a strong muscularskeletal foundation, and enhancing all activities of daily living as well. Most work done on the ball requires a great deal of recruitment from your core musculature, which contributes immensely to your OPA. Ball Inflation and Sizing: When sitting on the ball with both feet firmly planted on the ground, utilizing OPA, your upper leg should be parallel to the floor. Or, the knee may be slightly above the hips. Pumping up the ball more increases the level of difficulty in a given exercise. By pumping the ball up less, you increase the amount of contact surface area to the floor, which decreases difficulty and provides a more stable foundation for the work. 45 cm ball: Shorter than 5' 55 cm ball: 5' to 5'8" 65 cm ball: 5'9" to 6'3" 75 cm ball: Taller than 6'3"

sports-specific work and overall body conditioning. And, it's downright fun to use! Performing exercises on the ball places your body in an environment that is unstable. Integration of many physical conditioning systems are at work. Hence, the many joint stabilizer muscles, neutralizer muscles and mechanisms are immediately incorporated to provide your body with necessary stability, coordination and balance for a given exercise. As a result, you are less prone to injury. Valuable neurological benefits are achieved as well. Optimal postural alignment (OPA) is essential both in the gym and in all aspects of life. It allows you to maximize your exercise experience,


Works: Quadriceps, hamstrings, gluteus maximus (comprehensive thigh) Execution: Place the ball against the wall. Facing away from the wall, place your body against the ball at around mid-back level. Stand with feet planted firmly a little further than shoulder-width apart with toes facing directly forward. The knees are directly aligned with the toes and should track on the exercise between the first and second toe for optimal and safe knee alignment. Draw your navel to your spine, maintain normal breathing, keep your chest high and face straight ahead. Upon achieving this position, simply lower your hips

Animal Chiropractic?


nimal chiropractic for dogs, cats and horses? Absolutely. Simply put, animal chiropractic is a natural, drug-free addition to your pet’s overall health care. In addition to regular veterinary care, chiropractic care can increase comfort, and add quality to your pet’s performance, movement, and flexibility by restoring or improving a normal range of motion to their joints. Chiropractic care is especially helpful in cases where an injury has occurred that has caused a physical upset to the joints, muscles or blocked nerves. Chiropractic is also used to help pets who have had falls, or other blunt traumas, arthritis, spinal disease, and when general movement becomes stiff or painful. Animal chiropractic care looks at the issues of imbalances, in the following three areas:

1. Skeletal System and Joints: Bones and joints form a flexible configuration designed to provide pain-free movement when they are in normal health and alignment.

2. Muscular System:

Healthy muscles always allow the joints to move freely and should be free of spasm, pain, weakness and degenerative changes.

3. Nervous System: Nerves are the “hardwiring” of your pet’s body. They dictate the functions

of the body as well as control communication between the brain and all other areas of the body. When nerves are pinched, flow is reduced which leads to lower performance levels and sometimes pain.

Chiropractic For Your Pets?

Chiropractic will increase comfort and add quality to your pet’s performance, movement, and flexibility, and is especially helpful in cases where an injury has occurred.

781 585.6525 Just like humans, uncorrected subluxations can cause distress and disharmony to the body. But with animal chiropractic care from SHC, in conjunction with your animal’s veterinarian care, you’ll discover a natural, drug-free approach for your pet horse, dog and cat; farm animals such as cows and sheep; and exotic animals too, including birds and snakes to iguanas. Dr. Tranberg has provided chiropractic care since 1988. She is a certified member of the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association and the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association.

to the floor to a comfortable range of motion (no more than 90 degrees at the knee) and return to original position. Repeat for desired amount of reps. Points: Plant feet firmly, particularly the back half of the feet. Descend slowly as to maximize each repetition.


Works: Hamstrings, pelvic musculature, spinal erectors Execution: Lie on your back with legs straight, placing the backs of the feet on the ball with feet together. Have your arms directly to your side for maximum stability. Raise the pelvis toward the ceiling so that your body is in one straight line. (This placement is a hip bridge, which is an exercise in itself.) From this position, bring the feet toward your glutes, bending your knee no more than 90 degrees. Return to original position. Repeat for desired amount of reps. Points: Do not let your lower body move from side to side.


Works: Hamstrings, gluteus maximus, quadriceps, hip adductors and abductors, deep pelvic musculature Execution: Plant your feet firmly on the ground, lying face up with the ball placed in the mid to upper back, shoulder and neck area. (You want full support for the neck and shoulder as to not put excess strain on these areas.) Your neck should be in a neutral position, not letting the head drop backward or chin down. Align your hips, knees and ankles as well for maximum stability. From this position, with control, simply lower the hips to the floor then raise them up toward the ceiling to where your hips are parallel to the floor, keeping your knees directly over your ankles, not allowing your legs to move inward or outward, and keeping the ball

absolutely stable. Repeat for desired amount of repetitions. Points: Keep your feet firmly planted, particularly the back half of the feet. Press equally through both feet.


Works: Pectoralis major, anterior (front) deltoid, triceps, core musculature Execution: Begin by lying over the ball, placing the ball at about the top of the leg, keeping your legs straight. Place your hands on the floor in push-up position with your shoulders, elbows and hands in perfect vertical alignment. Face the floor, maintaining optimal spinal alignment. Make sure that you feel stable in this position. From here, simply bend your elbows to 90 degrees (or less if you cannot achieve 90 degrees) as you would a standard push-up, and return to original position. Repeat for desired repetitions. Points: As you place the ball further toward your feet (increasing the distance between your hand placement and the ball), you increase the level of difficulty for this exercise. Make sure that your positioning is comfortable but challenging. Remain stable so as to not roll from side to side.


Works: Rectus abdominis, internal/ external obliques Execution: Lie on the ball face up with the ball placed at about mid back level with both feet planted firmly on the floor. Your upper body should be parallel to the floor. Place your hands behind your head for added neck support. Look at the ceiling as to maintain optimal spinal alignment. From this position, leading with the chest, bring the chest toward your knees, keeping the hips absolutely stable. (The ball will try and roll with you on this motion.) Return to beginning position. Repeat for desired reps.

Points: If you are unable to achieve the position of the upper body being parallel to the floor, then lower the hips to a comfortable yet challenging position. Note that wherever you place the hips initially for this exercise, you must stabilize the hips in this position throughout the exercise for optimal abdominal muscle recruitment.


Works: Spinal erectors, neck extensors (postural musculature) Execution: Lie over the ball face down placing the ball at about chest to midsection area with both knees placed on the floor and arms to your side. Face the floor (not letting the head drop backward or chin to chest). From this position, bring your spine to a straight position where your spine is in total alignment. Add a slight squeeze between your shoulder blades. Return to original position and repeat for desired reps. Points: Breathe consistently, exhaling on the downward phase of the motion. You can increase the level of difficulty for this motion by placing your hands behind your head. Do not let your body roll from side to side. If this position on the ball is not comfortable for you, then discontinue the exercise. These are a few of the many exercises that can be done on the "Resista-Ball." Integrate this method of training into your fitness program. As always, with any exercise modality, do what is comfortable yet challenging for you. Broaden your horizons and incorporate all that you can into your program. Maintain consistency and safety. Continue the great work! Train to the best of your ability!

Commonly used food dyes, such as Yellow 5, Red 40, and six others, are made from petroleum and pose a “rainbow of risks.” Those risks include hyperactivity in children, cancer (in animal studies), and allergic reactions. In 2008, because of the problem of hyperactivity, the Center for Science in the Public Interest petitioned the Food and Drug Administration to ban the use of these dyes. The British government and European Union have taken actions that are virtually ending the use of dyes throughout Europe. Food dyes also serve to deceive consumers: they are often used to simulate the presence of healthful, colorful fruits and vegetables. But considering the adverse impact of these chemicals on children, and considering how easily they can be replaced with safe, natural ingredients, it's time to get rid of them altogether from the United States and Canada. Kellogg's Nutri-Grain bars are made with natural colorings in Britain but contain food dyes in the United States. Read CSPI's entire new report, "Food Dyes: A Rainbow of Risks," online at Frustrated?

The choice is your’s and it’s simple.

“Chronic inflammation may be the engine that drives many of the most feared illnesses of middle and old age.” (2)  Diseases associated with chronic inflammation include: obesity, diabetes, gum disease, arthritis, auto-immune disorders, cardiovascular diseases, gastrointestinal disturbances, certain cancers, allergies, and more.   Inflammatory disease rates are on the rise. A lead article in the USA TODAY newspaper Friday October 22, 2010 states: “Diabetes Cases May Double by 2050. And perhaps triple, with 1 in 3 having the disease.”   Inflammation is such a key aspect in so many diseases – that the future of Medicine may even include a specialty called “Inflammology”. (3)

Inflammation is a normal defensive reaction in our bodies that occurs with injury, tissue damage, infections, perceived toxic invasions (such as from chemicals, harmful bacteria, and viruses), food sensitivities

and environmental allergens. The inflammatory process entails a complex biological response that involves the vascular and immune systems and the body’s natural pharmacy of chemicals. Inflammation can occur on outer tissue wounds that we see, as well as in internal processes that we cannot see. Typical external signs are heat, redness, swelling, pain, pus at a wound site. Typical inner signs of inflammation are chronic aches and pains, gastrointestinal disturbances, allergies, chronic rashes, fatigue.      In acute situations, inflammation saves our lives. But when inflammatory processes are in overdrive, they promote many diseases and accelerate aging.   

Simple blood tests can be done to check for inflammation. • C-reactive protein (CRP) is a blood test that measures the amount of protein called c-reactive protein in the blood. C-reactive protein (CRP) measures general levels of

inflammation in your body. High levels of CRP are caused by infections and many long-term diseases. But a CRP test does not show where the inflammation is located or what is causing it. Other tests are needed to find the cause and location of the inflammation. A special type of CRP test, the high sensitivity CRP test (HS-CRP), may be done to find out if you have an increased chance of having a sudden heart problem or developing type 2 diabetes. Normal blood level for CRP is: 1-3 mg/L. (In some opinions, a normal CRP level can vary, according to genetic types). In acute, active infections – CRP levels can rise to 10 mg or higher. There is no special preparation for a c-reactive protein (CRP) test, although your doctor should be informed of all prescription and non-prescription medications and supplements that you are taking. CRP levels should revert to normal after an infection or inflammatory process is cleared. continued on page 27 . . .

• ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate or “sed rate”) is a blood test that can reveal inflammatory activity in your body. This isn’t a stand-alone diagnostic tool, but it may help your doctor diagnosis or monitor the progress of an inflammatory disease. When your blood is placed in a tall, thin tube – red blood cells (erythrocytes) slowly settle to the bottom. Inflammation can cause the cells to clump together. Because these clumps of cells are denser than individual cells, they settle to the bottom more quickly. The sed rate test measures the distance red blood cells fall in a test tube in one hour. The further the red blood cells have descended, the greater the inflammatory response of your immune system. There are no special preparations for this test. Normal range for ESR is: 0-22 mm/hour for men; 0-29 mm/hour for women. ESR rises during acute and chronic inflammation such as head-ache, neck and shoulder pain, joint stiffness, and inflammatory bowel—to name a few. Like CRP, ESR measures general inflammation in the body. Additional tests are needed to locate exact cause and location of infection. ESR levels should return to normal after the resolution of infection; but it typically takes longer for ESR to revert to normal than CRP.

• White blood cell count can be abnormal in times of infection and inflammation. White blood cells are also called leucocytes. White blood cells help fight infection.  Normal white blood cell count is: 4,500-10,000 white blood cells(wbc’s) per micro-Liter. A count

of more than 10,500 wbc’s per microLiter is generally considered a high white blood cell count. A high white blood cell count may indicate infectious disease, rheumatoid arthritis, allergies, an immune system disorder that increases white blood cell production, smoking, stress (emotional or physical), and viral infections or overwhelming infections that use up white blood cells faster than they can be reproduced. A low white blood cell count is lower than 3,500 white blood cells per micro-Liter of blood. It may indicate infectious diseases, viral diseases that temporarily disrupt bone marrow function, the possibility of a tumor, lupus, liver disease, parasitic disease, or a side effect from certain medications such as antibiotics and diuretics. There is no special preparation required for white blood cell count. NOTE: A COMPLETE BLOOD COUNT (CBC) of red blood cell and white blood cells components is sometimes done to rule out various types of disease processes. There is no special preparation required for a CBC test. The Rheumatoid Factor test is a blood test often ordered to help diagnosis rheumatoid arthritis (RA). This test measures rheumatoid factor, which is an antibody in the blood of most people with rheumatoid arthritis. The majority of people with rheumatoid arthritis are eventually positive for rheumatoid factor, although in early arthritis the percentage may be smaller. Rheumatoid factor may also be elevated in other autoimmune and inflammatory diseases besides RA. There is no special preparation for this test. Rheumatoid factor is normally not present in the blood, although it is sometimes present in 1-2% of individuals without diseases. Normal values are reported in 2 ways: – Less than 40-60 U/mL  OR –Less than 1:80 (a 1 to 80 ratio) Titer   WHAT is normal for the above tests can vary considerably from person

to person and in different family groupings – according to genetic predispositions. Test results can also vary according to age, sex, and preexisting medical conditions. However, together with other diagnostic tests and assessment measures, these blood tests can be very helpful in determining inflammatory processes occurring, as well as aid in assessing how treatments are working to decrease inflammation.

Intravenous Infusion

Chelation Therapy

by Glenn S. Rothfeld, M.D.

in conjunction with the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM), the organization of physicians who practice chelation therapy, launched a large multicenter study of chelation therapy for coronary artery disease. This study, called TACT (Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy), will involve over 2000 patients when it is complete. The NIH/ACAM protocol involves the intravenous infusion of a solution containing minerals, vitamins and a special (man-made) amino acid called EDTA. This solution, through complex biochemical actions at the molecular level, has the effect of removing such toxic heavy metals as lead and arsenic. The benefits of the treatments include a reduction of abnormal calcium and heavy metals, an increase in the beneficial minerals like magnesium and potassium, improved tissue perfusion (which means increased oxygen and nutrition to the cell) and improved function of individual cells and enzyme systems. Recent work on oxidation damage to vessels has suggested that iron, in in a free radical form in the body, is particularly toxic to vessels and to the action of antioxidants in the body. It has been suggested that the positive

Chelation Therapy involves the intravenous administration of an amino acid that binds with heavy metals and removes them and other toxins from the system.


helation therapy is a noninvasive treatment for heavy metal toxicity and for vascular disease that has been used with great success since the 1950s. It involves the intravenous administration of an amino acid that binds with heavy metals and removes them and other toxins from the system. By doing so, it may reduce the free radical damage to blood vessels and other tissues and therefore improve circulation throughout the body. Besides the benefit to people with vascular disease, chelation therapy has been reported to improve other illnesses related to free radical damage, such as cancer, inflammatory joint disease, asthma, diabetes, senile dementia, and degenerative eye disease. In 2002, in response to positive studies and numerous case reports of successful chelation therapy for vascular and cardiac problems, the National Institutes of Health (NIH)

effects of EDTA in the body may relate to its strong affinity (binding) of this form of iron. Whatever its mechanism, intravenous EDTA chelation therapy has been used safely on hundreds of thousands of patients. The NIH/EDTA protocol involves a three-hour infusion, given in a carefully measured dose. Sometimes, this is given as a half-dose in half the time (90 minutes). Very few side effects occur when chelation is given, although blood sugar can decrease (which is one reason it’s used in diabetics with circulatory disorders). A course of chelation usually involves 30 or more treatments, usually given weekly or every other week. Many patients have found that chelation can relieve symptoms of claudication (lack of blood supply to the legs leading to pain with any activity), angina (lack of blood supply to the heart) or neurological problems related to circulation. Others use chelation treatments to “clean” their arteries of dangerous heavy metals. Still others, however, consider chelation to be a health maintenance activity, along with proper diet, supplementation and regular exercise. Glenn S. Rothfeld MD is medical director of The Rothfeld Center for Integrative Medicine and a member of ACAM. At The Rothfeld Center the NIH/ACAM chelation protocol is used, along with intravenous therapies, allergy treatment, and other natural and integrative medical therapies.

Veronica Shaffer’s I Hear Your Cry: Women in Prison is an absorbing and insightful look at imprisonment both physically and metaphorically. It is real-time journey spanning five years but a metaphysical passage that takes us deeper into the lives and hearts of the author and her students. Ms. Shaffer guides her readers through an outsider’s view of prison life inviting us to examine our stereotypes about the prisoners as well as prison staff.

By offering yoga under the guise of a “wellness program,” Ms. Shaffer provides inmates with a new activity, one that they can take back to their cells, but also perhaps something they can practice after they return to society. The seemingly endless logistic and bureaucratic barriers to presenting the program mirror the self-imposed obstacles of all of the women in the book. The shifts though time and space create a realistic, yet inspirational tone. Some “characters” and situations are hauntingly familiar while others are intriguing and foreign. Shaffer’s narrative summaries give structure and purpose to the mysterious worlds of prison life and yoga practice. It is also a classic tale of how a teacher can learn as much or more from her students as they can from her. This book is indeed about the cries we hear throughout our lives: those internal and external, those that we ignore or go unanswered by others or ourselves. But most importantly, it is about the cries that are embraced, shared and, eventually, answered. Pauline Stieff, M.A. Writing Consultant and Owner, P.S. Publications Instructor, Boston Center for Adult Education

At just five years old, Maureen Hancock discovered her ability to communicate with the dead after a life-threatening childhood illness. Descended from a long line of legendary Irish mystics, she was no stranger to the spiritual realm, but for fear of being misunderstood by her friends and family she kept the otherworldly messages to herself, eventually suppressing them completely. Maureen wouldn’t hear the spirits again until she was in a near-fatal car crash. Soon after, she had hundreds of voices in her head, many of which helped her crack cases and expose fraud in her role as a litigation paralegal at a large Boston law firm. Then, when tragedy struck on 9/11, Maureen was bombarded with messages from the spirit world as she worked at Logan airport. As each one made contact with her, she finally came to terms with her calling: to communicate with the deceased, assist the dying, search for missing children, and teach the living about life after death, all the while raising her children in her suburban home. Maureen Hancock is literally the Medium Next Door, and in this book and through her stories of her encounters with the otherworld as well as guided exercises at the conclusion of each chapter, she offers the same comfort and wisdom she shares in her healing encounters and lectures about what is out there waiting for all who are open to its mysteries.

In her new book, The Medium Next Door, Adventures of a Real Life Ghost Whisperer, Maureen Hancock details the joys and challenges of a real life ghost whisperer. “It’s basically part memoir about my life as a medium, yet I’m just like your next door neighbor…only I hear and see spirits,” Hancock explains. “I write about my work with the sick and dying, helping people pass, assisting detectives in missing children and adult cases, profound readings that have changed families’ lives, and my adventures to land a reality television show.” This book is an easy read. You will laugh, cry and share in this remarkable journey to find answers to life’s most burning questions about life after death. LEARN MORE

According to Kellogg’s “Consumer Specialist” Christina Calleros as reported in the Organic Consumers Association, in their support of genetically modified food, “sixty to seventy percent of all food now packaged in the US is genetically modified.” You wouldn’t know this by reading the labels because genetically modified food is not required to be labeled. That’s because if they labeled it, nobody would buy it. Genetically modified food is part of what is called the Green Revolution, an Orwellian double-speak

term used by the chemical pesticide companies to disguise the toxicity of their products. One example of how “green” the world has become after their efforts is that 30,000 varieties of brown rice have become extinct in India after only three years of these practices. If efforts like these weren’t enough to bury the whole world’s population in a toxic dumpsite, now the same companies are genetically modifying foods so they can withstand this chemical onslaught even more. The pesticide companies buy

up all the seed companies so only their hybridized or genetically modified seeds are available to farmers while all the natural seeds that took thousands of years to perfect become extinct. These companies claim that genetically modified food is safe for the environment, healthy for human consumption, and will help save the food shortages they predict for the future. But then why have two hundred and fifty thousand Indian farmers committed suicide

Online Issue October 2011 Healthy Living Magazine 35

recently after they were bullied into growing Monsanto seeds? After being stuck with the Monsanto seeds, the Indian farmers needed so much more water than they were accustomed to using that they couldn’t afford to water them and they never reached harvest. Even more troubling is that the Monsanto seeds are genetically modified to selfdestruct each week that they are not given their toxic dose of Roundup, a pesticide that gets stronger and more toxic and dangerous each year it is used. The Indian farmers couldn’t afford to buy the Roundup either. Their agricultural communities became so saturated with these chemical toxins that the cancer rate in their communities goes up and up each year these artificial seeds are grown. See for yourself on YouTube at watch?v=Av6dx9yNiCA. One startling and shocking image of modern food production comes from the documentary Food Inc. This film shows the true condition of industrially produced cows as an example of the foods we

commonly eat today in the US market. They are so sick and so weak that they can’t even walk and have to be fork-lifted to their own slaughter. Even Paleolithic man would have enough intelligence not to eat these animals! Unfortunately, modern man doesn’t seem to have the intelligence of a cave man, or a sick cow either for that matter, because millions of US citizens continue to eat this trash year after year. No

wonder we have such a health crisis and no wonder even our best and brightest can’t figure out how to solve it. They eat this crap too!

Franken-Foods and Beyond Their big lie continues with the safety of that genetically modified food. Regular people are led to think it is just like normal food hybridization and that it’s totally harmless. The

36 Healthy Living Magazine Online Issue October 2011

average American thinks that genetically modified food is produced by taking genes from wheat that grows well in different situations and simply stirring them up to make super wheat. Right? Wrong! The genes don’t even come from the same species! Instead genes from insects, reptiles, fish, a wide variety of mammals, plants, and even bacteria―creatures that would NEVER and could NEVER combine in the wild―are violently forced together to produce a new FrankenCreature primarily so that it can tolerate the heavily toxic chemical environment it is expected to withstand. Another reason is to produce pharmaceutical medicines. That’s right! They call it Big Pharma. Imagine tomatoes producing Prozac as a by-product and your string beans producing Lipitor. Your food is now a veritable drug store and you don’t even need a prescription. I’ll bet you didn’t know that Monsanto was prescribing these drugs without a license. Somebody should call the AMA and put them in jail where they belong. Meanwhile, these companies take farmers to court and

steal their land if they can prove the seeds are growing on the farmers land without their permission. Why farmers growing organic food for several generations would ever want these seeds in the first place is beyond comprehension, but this practice has been going on for more than ten years already. How much money, power, and prestige is it worth to twist American justice to such a perverted end? You would think these people would at least want to protect their own children wouldn’t you? They must be a race of extraterrestrial reptiles that

are totally immune to natural law. Maybe they think they can just buy everything. Maybe they have just been eating too much Cornflakes!

All the King’s Men Much of the confusion we have about genetically modified food comes from what we think food is. Since the World Wars, industrial food companies have redesigned our concept of food to something refined, packaged, and more appealing to the cartoon mentality than it is to wholesome common sense. To create a longer shelf-life they removed the nutritious parts of the food that would otherwise spoil. Remember the fake cereals they “fortified” sometimes with the vitamins and minerals they took out and others just with Tony the Tiger who then preyed on the vulnerability of young children and encouraged them to buy these fake foods for the wrong reason. This mentality continues into adulthood and creates our warped and artificial understanding of food. This way we are deceived into buying foods for comfort instead of nutrition.

You can see this easily in the supermarkets where the breakfast food aisle is clearly the longest and largest in the store. The so-called scientists and doctors who support this fake food are like the king’s horses and king’s men of the Humpty Dumpty fairly tale. Once the wholeness of the natural world and our food is fractured, we can never reinstate the fractured whole. The people who created this fairy tale knew something about whole foods that we have forgotten today, something that blinds us from seeing the even more dangerous problems that now confront us with genetically modified food.

The Extinction of Whole Grain and the Loss of Judgment One of the main industrially refined foods that replaced the whole foods of our fairly recent ancestors was whole cereal grain. Whole grain is the one primary food that we do not find in restaurants or supermarkets anymore. As a result, we have lost around seventy-five years of nutritional

health and are now three generations weaker than our ancestors who never had the heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and obesity we have today. Modern nutrition would have us believe that all carbohydrate and, therefore, foods like potatoes and brown rice are the same. But our Paleolithic hero would beg to differ. In fact, potatoes grow under the ground while whole wheat is formed by the combination of the fruit and seed of a grass and rises above the plant upon an erect stem. In addition, whole grain is several thousand times smaller than a potato, a fact that accounts for an entirely different percentage of nutrients between them. The extra vitamins and minerals in whole grain feed the brain, in contrast to the larger amount of carbohydrate in the potato, which then provides the extra energy for physical work. The whole grain, being a combination of fruit and seed, also gives us the capacity to understand whole cycles in nature―how things begin and end. The seed is the beginning of a plant while the fruit is the end. Most seeds, like nuts, have a very hard and inedible fruit―the shell of a walnut,

for example. Most fruits, like apples or plums have a very hard, slightly toxic, and inedible seeds. Therefore, you don’t eat the “fruit” part of nuts or the “seed” part of fruits. You throw them away. Only whole grains have the edible parts of their seeds and fruits combined. This amazing combination of the seed and fruit in whole grains gives us

modified food. Now we have genes of all sorts forced together and struggling for dominance with each other within a life form originally designed by nature for something else―a chaotic situation indeed! Independent genetic modification experts from UC Berkeley found plenty of evidence for this chaos on the physiological level. Their studies showed, “stunted growth, impaired immune systems, bleeding stomachs, abnormal and potentially pre-cancerous cell growth in the intestines, impaired blood cell development, misshaped cell structures in the liver, pancreas and testicles, altered the capacity to understand gene expression and cell how present actions turn out metabolism, liver and kidney in the future―what we call lesions, partially atrophied Judgment.

In the past, each type of food was thought to strengthen or balance a different organ or group of body tissues.

Anti-Inflammatory Diet Tips

Dr. Andrew Weil on Healthy Aging

It is becoming increasingly clear that a host of illnesses - including heart disease, many cancers and Alzheimer's disease – are influenced in large part by chronic inflammation. This is a process in which the immune system becomes off balance, and persists unnecessarily in its efforts to repair the body and repel pathogens. The prolonged process results in damage to healthy tissue as well. Stress, lack of exercise, genetic predisposition and other lifestyle factors can all promote inflammation, but poor diet is perhaps the main contributor, and the ideal place to begin addressing inflammation. The Anti-Inflammatory Diet is not a diet in the popular sense - it is not intended as a weight-loss program (although people can and do lose weight on it), nor is it an eating plan to stay on for a limited period of time. Rather, it is way of selecting and preparing foods based on scientific knowledge of how they can help your body remain optimally healthy. Along with influencing inflammation, this diet will provide steady energy and ample vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and dietary fiber.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: When you look at the pyramid, you'll see that the diet steers you toward a wide variety of foods, ranging from lots of fresh vegetables and fruits (the foundation of all meals) to cooked Asian mushrooms, healthy herbs and spices, and dark chocolate as a sweet treat. It minimizes consumption of the processed and fast foods that are some of the major contributors to chronic inflammation.

If you adopt this diet, each day you'll also be eating three to five half-cup servings of whole and cracked grains, one to two half-cup servings of beans and legumes, five to seven servings of healthy fats (one serving is equal to 1 teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil or organic, expeller-pressed canola oil; two walnuts; 1 tablespoon of freshly ground flaxseed; or 1 ounce of avocado). For daily protein and omega-3 fatty acids: two to six 4-ounce servings of wild Alaskan salmon, herring,

sardines and Alaskan black cod. You'll be going easy on other sources of protein, limiting servings to one to two per week of omega-3-enriched eggs, natural cheese (1 ounce equals one serving), 8-ounce servings of dairy, and 3 ounces of poultry or skinless meat. The beverage category emphasizes tea — 2 to 4 cups of white, green or oolong teas per day — and if you drink alcohol, you can plan on a glass or two of organic red wine daily. In addition to dark chocolate, healthy treats include sorbet and unsweetened dried fruits. In the text accompanying the food pyramid, you'll find specific serving sizes for all the foods included. I think you'll find the pyramid very easy to use. It may also introduce you to a variety of foods you haven't eaten before. Be adventurous. Try Anasazi beans, sea vegetables and bean-thread noodles, for example.

called AGEs (advanced glycation end products). You can moderate this process by keeping blood sugar low and stable. That means eating less bread, white potatoes, crackers, chips and other snack foods, pastries, and sweetened drinks, less refined and processed foods, and by avoiding fast foods and products made with high fructose corn syrup. Instead, eat more whole grains, beans, sweet potatoes, winter squashes and other vegetables and temperate fruits such as berries, cherries, apples, and pears instead of tropical fruits such as bananas, pineapple, mango and papaya. As far as protein is concerned, eat less meat and poultry, both of which contain pro-inflammatory fats, and more vegetable protein (soy foods, beans, lentils and other legumes), whole grains, seeds, and nuts. If you eat fish, choose the oily varieties that give you omega-3s (wild Alaska salmon, sardines, herring, and black cod). For a thorough discussion of the role of inflammation in initiating and promoting disease (and details of the anti-inflammatory diet), I suggest reading my book, Healthy Aging, or joining Dr. Weil on Healthy Aging, which features anti-inflammatory eating guides.

Online Issue October 2011 Healthy Living Magazine 45

HEALTHY SWEETS How much: Sparingly Healthy choices: Unsweetened dried fruit, dark chocolate, fruit sorbet Why: Dark chocolate provides polyphenols with antioxidant activity. Choose dark chocolate with at least 70 percent pure cocoa and have an ounce a few times a week. Fruit sorbet is a better option than other frozen desserts.

RED WINE How much: Optional, no more than 1-2 glasses per day Healthy choices: Organic red wine Why: Red wine has beneficial antioxidant activity. Limit intake to no more than 1-2 servings per day. If you do not drink alcohol, do not start.

TEA How much: 2-4 cups per day Healthy choices: White, green, oolong teas

OTHER SOURCES OF PROTEIN How much: 1-2 servings a week (one portion is equal to 1 ounce of cheese, 1 eight-ounce serving of dairy, 1 egg, 3 ounces cooked poultry or skinless meat) Healthy choices: Natural cheeses, lowfat yogurt, omega-3 enriched eggs, skinless poultry, grass-fed lean meats Why: In general, try to reduce consumption of animal foods. If you eat chicken, choose organic, cage-free chicken and remove the skin and associated fat.  Use organic, reducedfat dairy products moderately, especially yogurt and natural cheeses such as Emmental (Swiss), Jarlsberg and true Parmesan.   If you eat eggs, choose omega-3 enriched eggs (made by feeding hens a flax-meal-enriched diet), or organic eggs from free-range chickens.

COOKED ASIAN MUSHROOMS How much: Unlimited amounts Healthy choices: Shiitake, enokidake, maitake, oyster mushrooms (and wild mushrooms if available)

Why: Tea is rich in catechins, antioxidant compounds that reduce inflammation. Purchase high-quality tea and learn how to correctly brew it for maximum taste and health benefits.

Why: These mushrooms contain compounds that enhance immune function. Never eat mushrooms raw, and minimize consumption of common commercial button mushrooms (including crimini and portobello).



How much: Unlimited amounts

How much: 1-2 servings per day (one serving is equal to ½ cup tofu or tempeh, 1 cup soymilk, ½ cup cooked edamame, 1 ounce of soynuts)

Healthy choices: Turmeric, curry powder (which contains turmeric), ginger and garlic (dried and fresh), chili peppers, basil, cinnamon, rosemary, thyme Why: Use these herbs and spices generously to season foods. Turmeric and ginger are powerful, natural anti-inflammatory agents.

Healthy choices: Tofu, tempeh, edamame, soy nuts, soymilk Why: Soy foods contain isoflavones that have antioxidant activity and are protective against cancer. Choose whole soy foods over fractionated foods like isolated soy protein powders and imitation meats made with soy isolate. continued . . .

46 Healthy Living Magazine Online Issue October 2011

Online Issue October 2011 Healthy Living Magazine 47



How much: 2-6 servings per week (one serving is equal to 4 ounces of fish or seafood)

How much: 3-5 servings a day (one serving is equal to about ½ cup cooked grains)

Healthy choices: Wild Alaskan salmon (especially sockeye), herring, sardines, and black cod (sablefish)

Healthy choices: Brown rice, basmati rice, wild rice, buckwheat, groats, barley, quinoa, steel-cut oats

Why: These fish are rich in omega-3 fats, which are strongly anti-inflammatory. If you choose not to eat fish, take a molecularly distilled fish oil supplement, 2-3 grams per day.

Why: Whole grains digest slowly, reducing frequency of spikes in blood sugar that promote inflammation. “Whole grains” means grains that are intact or in a few large pieces, not whole wheat bread or other products made from flour.



How much: 5-7 servings per day (one serving is equal to 1 teaspoon of oil, 2 walnuts, 1 tablespoon of flaxseed, 1 ounce of avocado)

How much: 2-3 servings per week (one serving is equal to about ½ cup cooked pasta)

Healthy choices: For cooking, use extra virgin olive oil and expeller-pressed organic canola oil. Other sources of healthy fats include nuts (especially walnuts), avocados, and seeds including hemp seeds and freshly ground flaxseed. Omega-3 fats are also found in cold water fish, omega-3 enriched eggs, and whole soy foods. High-oleic sunflower or safflower oils may also be used, as well as walnut and hazelnut oils in salads and dark roasted sesame oil as a flavoring for soups and stir-fries.  Why: Healthy fats are those rich in either monounsaturated or omega-3 fats. Extra-virgin olive oil is rich in polyphenols with antioxidant activity and canola oil contains a small fraction of omega-3 fatty acids. 

Healthy choices: Organic pasta, rice noodles, bean thread noodles, and part whole wheat and buckwheat noodles like Japanese udon and soba Why: Pasta cooked al dente (when it has “tooth” to it) has a lower glycemic index than fully-cooked pasta. Low-glycemicload carbohydrates should be the bulk of your carbohydrate intake to help minimize spikes in blood glucose levels.

BEANS & LEGUMES How much: 1-2 servings per day (one serving is equal to ½ cup cooked beans or legumes) Healthy choices: Beans like Anasazi, adzuki and black, as well as chickpeas, black-eyed peas and lentils Why: Beans are rich in folic acid, magnesium, potassium and soluble fiber. They are a low-glycemic-load food.  Eat them well-cooked either whole or pureed into spreads like hummus.

48 Healthy Living Magazine Online Issue October 2011

Online Issue October 2011 Healthy Living Magazine 49

SUPPLEMENTS How much: Daily Healthy choices: High quality multivitamin/multimineral that includes key antioxidants (vitamin C, vitamin E, mixed carotenoids, and selenium); co-enzyme Q10; 2-3 grams of a molecularly distilled fish oil; 1,000 IU of vitamin D3 Why: Supplements help fill any gaps in your diet when you are unable to get your daily requirement of micronutrients.

VEGETABLES How much: 4-5 servings per day minimum (one serving is equal to 2 cups salad greens, ½ cup vegetables cooked, raw or juiced) Healthy Choices: Lightly cooked dark leafy greens (spinach, collard greens, kale, Swiss chard), cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kale, bok choy and cauliflower), carrots, beets, onions, peas, squashes, sea vegetables and washed raw salad greens Why: Vegetables are rich in flavonoids and carotenoids with both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. Go for a wide range of colors, eat them both raw and cooked, and choose organic when possible.

FRUITS How much: 3-4 servings per day (one serving is equal to 1 medium size piece of fruit, ½ cup chopped fruit, ¼ cup of dried fruit) Healthy choices: Raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, peaches, nectarines, oranges, pink grapefruit, red grapes, plums, pomegranates, blackberries, cherries, apples, and pears - all lower in glycemic load than most tropical fruits Why: Fruits are rich in flavonoids and carotenoids with both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. Go for a wide range of colors, choose fruit that is fresh in season or frozen, and buy organic when possible.

General Diet Tips:

Fat • On a 2,000-calorie-a-day diet, 600 calories can come from fat - that is, about 67 grams. This should be in a ratio of 1:2:1 of saturated to monounsaturated to polyunsaturated fat. • Reduce your intake of saturated fat by eating less butter, cream, cheese and other full-fat dairy products; unskinned chicken and fatty meats; and products made with coconut and palm kernel oils. • Use extra-virgin olive oil as a main cooking oil. If you want a neutral tasting oil, use expeller-pressed, organic canola oil. High-oleic versions of sunflower and safflower oil are acceptable also, preferably non-GMO (genetically modified). • Avoid regular safflower and sunflower oils, corn oil, cottonseed oil, and mixed vegetable oils. • Strictly avoid margarine, vegetable shortening, and all products listing them as ingredients. Strictly avoid all products made with partially hydrogenated oils of any kind. Include in your diet avocados and nuts, especially walnuts, cashews, almonds, and nut butters made from these nuts. • For omega-3 fatty acids, eat salmon (preferably fresh continued . . .

or frozen wild or canned sockeye), sardines packed in water or olive oil, herring, and black cod (sablefish, butterfish); omega-3 fortified eggs; hemp seeds and flaxseeds (preferably freshly ground); or take a fish oil supplement.

Protein • On a 2,000-calorie-aday diet your daily intake of protein should be between 80 and 120 grams. Eat less protein if you have liver or kidney problems, allergies, or autoimmune disease. • Decrease your consumption of animal protein except for fish and reduced-fat dairy products. • Eat more vegetable protein, especially from beans in general and soybeans in particular. Become familiar with the range of soy foods available and find ones you like.

• Choose organic produce whenever possible. Learn which conventionally grown crops are most likely to carry pesticide residues and avoid them. • Eat cruciferous (cabbagefamily) vegetables regularly. • Include soy foods in your diet. • Drink tea instead of coffee, especially good quality white, green or oolong tea. • If you drink alcohol, use red wine preferentially. • Enjoy plain dark chocolate in moderation (with a minimum cocoa content of 70 percent).

Vitamins and Minerals

The best way to obtain all of your daily vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients is by eating a diet high in fresh foods with an abundance of fruits and vegetables. In addition, supplement your diet with the following antioxidant cocktail: Phytonutrients • Vitamin C, 200 milligrams a day. • To get maximum natural • Vitamin E, 400 IU of protection against agenatural mixed tocopherols related diseases (including (d-alpha-tocopherol with cardiovascular disease, cancer, other tocopherols, or, better, a and neurodegenerative minimum of 80 milligrams of disease) as well as against natural mixed tocopherols and environmental toxicity, eat a tocotrienols). variety of fruits, vegetables • Selenium, 200 micrograms and mushrooms. of an organic (yeast-bound) • Choose fruits and vegetables form. from all parts of the color • Mixed carotenoids, 10,000spectrum, especially berries, 15,000 IU daily. tomatoes, orange and yellow • In addition, take daily fruits, and dark leafy greens. multivitamin/multimineral 52 Healthy Living Magazine Online Issue October 2011

supplements that provide at least 400 micrograms of folic acid and at least 1,000 IU of vitamin D. They should contain no iron and no preformed vitamin A (retinol). • Take supplemental calcium, preferably as calcium citrate. Women should supplement with 500-700 mg daily, for a total daily intake of 1,0001,200 mg from all sources. Men should get no more than 500-600 mg daily from all sources, and probably do not need to supplement.


• Try to drink 6-8 glasses of pure water a day, or drinks that are mostly water (tea, How much: Throughout the very diluted fruit juice, day sparkling water with lemon). Healthy choices: Use purified • Use bottled water or get a home water purifier if your water or beverages made tap water tastes of chlorine with purified water, such as or other contaminants, or if unsweetened tea, sparkling you live in an area where the water, or water with a small amount of fruit juice for flavor water is known or suspected to be contaminated.

Other Dietary Supplements • If you are not eating oily fish at least twice a week, take supplemental fish oil, in capsule or liquid form, 1-2 grams a day. Look for molecularly distilled products certified to be free of heavy metals and other contaminants. • Talk to your doctor about going on low-dose aspirin therapy, one or two baby aspirins a day (81 or 162 milligrams). • If you are not regularly eating ginger and turmeric, consider taking these in supplemental form. • Add CoQ10 to your daily regimen: 60-100 milligrams of a softgel form taken with your largest meal. • If you are prone to metabolic syndrome, take alpha-lipoic acid, 100 to 400 milligrams a day.
