Welcome Springtime!!!

Sensitivity Testing for Pollen/Dust/Mold

Those of you who have suffered in the past with environmental allergies, it is not too soon to start testing and working on getting your body ready for the spring allergy season. I am in the Whitby office on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Don’t wait until you start to feel the symptoms. Enjoy this spring & summer symptom free! Remember, if you have pollen allergies you may also have food allergies and vice versa.

One of the first triggers of seasonal allergies is snow mold.

Chemical Allergies

We live in a world of continual environmental change. Most everything we come in contact with or eat contains some kind of chemical additive. Toxic and allergic chemicals are in the air and water. Many people end up at the Doctors with undiagnosed symptoms. Usually treated with some form of medication (eg.anti-depressants), when the cause could be an environmental hazard like coffee or cigarettes. 
Food Additives

Most additives have the potential to cause toxic and allergic reactions. Over 90% of foods at the grocery store contain some kind of additive. The average person consuming more than 10 -15 pounds of food additives per year.
Some of these additives may have the ability to change the digestive process and cause damage to the intestinal lining.
Chemical sensitivity can produce ANY symptom in any person, at any given time. The same chemical may cause headache in one person, and joint pain in another.

Top Four Food Additives

Sulfites
Used as preservative to keep foods from turning brown (wine, beer, citrus drinks,potato chips,dried fruit,frozen items)

Yellow Dye#5
Most food dyes are known carcinogens. It is a synthetic dye derived from coal tar. It is a causative agent in bronchial asthma. Found in cheese, cake mixes, canned vegetables,chewing gum, fruit juice, puddings, salad dressings,ice cream, jams, ketchup, baked goods, wine coolers, liqueurs and much more.

BHA/BHT
Both are preservatives. Mostly found in cereals, baked goods, frozen dinners, fruit drinks, chewing gum. BHA/BHT may affect the nervous system and are known to cause behavioral problems in children. BHT has been banned from all foods in England.

MSG
Used as a flavour enhancer. Occurs in large amounts in food. Many restaurants use MSG, especially fast food. MSG causes headaches, diarrhea, blurred vision,fatigue, hot flashes, numbness of the face, sweating, and palpitations. Prolonged exposure may cause brain damage. Children are very sensitive to MSG. Other names for MSG, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, hydrolyzed yeast, vegetable powder, or natural flavours.

As part of the food sensitivity testing that I conduct, I always test for food additives. Food additives play a large role in many unexplained symptoms. Children especially, behavioral issues are frequently caused by a high sensitivity to food additives and sugars.

It is so important to read the labels on the foods you are buying.

If you don’t like reading labels, then buy food without labels!

Natural Wellness Solutions: Watermelon info and recipe

Donna Wiggers of Natural Wellness Solutions kindly shares the following with us. Please visit her website for more information on her services and other healthy/wellness ideas and solutions.

Watermelon

No other fruit is more enjoyable on a hot summer day than sweet, juicy watermelon; it has an extremely high water content, approximately 92%.
 
Why you should add watermelon to your diet. Watermelon is a rich source of heart-healthy nutrients, such as vitamin C and the carotenoid phytonutrient, lycopene; which also provides reddish-pink watermelon with its distinctive coloration. Lycopene, along with beta-carotene and vitamin A, provides powerful antioxidant protection from the oxidative damage to cellular structures caused by free radicals. Watermelon is an ideal food not only because it is nutritious and tastes great, but also because it is low in calories: one cup of watermelon contains only 49 calories!
 
Summer is the time of year when its concentration of nutrients and flavor are highest and its cost is at its lowest.
 
Selecting a watermelon
Watermelon will not ripen after they are picked, so it is important to select a ripe watermelon in the market. If you thump a ripe watermelon it will sound like a dull thud rather than tighter ringing or hollow sound. The rind should be relatively smooth – neither overly shiny nor overly dull.
 
Watermelon retains its maximum amount of nutrients and it’s best taste when it is fresh.
 
 Watermelon Frappe
 
4 cups cold watermelon chunks
8 mint leaves
Run the blender at medium speed and drop chunks of watermelon through the feed hole one at a time until they are well integrated.
Add the mint and run the blender at medium speed for 1 minute until the watermelon has liquefied.
Strain into glasses, garnish with a sprig of mint and enjoy! Serves two.
                                               Watermelon-Kiwi Soup
Puree 3 cups watermelon, 1 cup cantaloupe and 1 cup kiwi fruit together. Swirl in a little plain yogurt and serve as a refreshing soup.
