  • 3 Simple Steps for an Allergy-Free Season

    by Margo Gladding | April 21, 2015

    SS-A-1-breathing-in-natureExperts predict this allergy season to be particularly bad. If you are an allergy sufferer, then you know just how awful the symptoms can be. Fortunately, I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Rob Ivker, the leading authority on sinus health, author of the best-selling book SINUS SURVIVAL: The Holistic Medical Treatment for Sinusitis, Allergies, and Colds, and the creator of the Sinus Survival Allergy Treatment Program. Dr. Ivker gave me some great advice that I want to share with you.

    Dr. Ivker’s 3 simple steps for an allergy-free season:

    1. Consider food allergy testing – Food allergies and food sensitivities can contribute to allergy and sinusitis symptoms. Especially for individuals who experience chronic sinusitis, Dr. Ivker highly recommends looking into whether certain foods such as dairy, wheat/gluten, corn, soy, and eggs could be making your symptoms worse. Foods that you are either allergic to or sensitive to can cause inflammation in both your GI tract as well as your respiratory tract and result in more severe allergy symptoms. By identifying and eliminating problematic foods, you can reduce your body’s inflammatory burden and help ease your allergy symptoms.

    2. Take 3 key supplements to build natural immunity to airborne allergies – Dr. Ivker’s favorite allergy protocol includes the following: Read more

  • Vitamin D Deficiency and Type 2 Diabetes

    by Paula Gallagher | February 24, 2015

    sun-baskingHere's another reason to make sure you are getting enough of the sunshine vitamin. A new study published in the Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism has shown that vitamin D deficiency and type 2 diabetes are linked in that people who do not get enough vitamin D are at higher risk of having diabetes, regardless of their weight.

    The results show that vitamin D levels were more closely linked to blood sugar levels than BMI, according to the study. Whether or not vitamin D played a role in causing diabetes or other disorders that affect the metabolism of glucose is unknown and further studies will need to be done.

    “The major strength of this study is that it compares vitamin D levels in people at a wide range of weights (from lean to morbidly obese subjects) while taking whether they had diabetes into account,” said one of the study’s authors, Mercedes Clemente-Postigo, MSc, of Instituto de Investigación Biomédica de Málaga (IBIMA). They also went on to say that, "The study suggests that vitamin D deficiency and obesity interact synergistically to heighten the risk of diabetes and other metabolic disorders. The average person may be able to reduce their risk by maintaining a healthy diet and getting enough outdoor activity." Read more
