  • IQYOU: A New Smart Tool for Individualized Healthcare Solutions

    by Joseph Pizzorno, N.D. | April 2, 2014

    I’m pleased to join Village Green as a Medical Advisor and will be highlighting information on specific health topics that can directly benefit our readers. To begin with, I’d like to talk about a new program that can provide individualized healthcare information to help optimize your health.

    Let’s review the typical healthcare scenario. You get a check-up once or twice a year and receive health feedback, but the only other time you see your doctor or other health practitioners is for managing an ache, pain or sickness. Often a prescription is provided and over time, you may be taking a variety of prescriptions for multiple conditions. By the time the average person is 45, they are taking 4.5 different prescriptions per year, and by age 65, they’re taking 7 or more. And just think of all the costs involved with multiple prescriptions and managing chronic illnesses!

    The solution is to promote health, rather than simply treat disease, and to address dysfunctions and deficiencies BEFORE they become ill-health. By addressing the underlying causes, versus masking symptoms with prescriptions, many drugs may never be needed and others may be reduced or eliminated.  Read more

  • GMO Labeling in Maryland

    by Paula Gallagher | March 9, 2014

    GMO is not just a new buzz word. Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are unfortunately part of our everyday lives. Even if you try your best to avoid them, it's almost impossible to do that because there are no GMO labeling laws.

    On Tuesday, March 11, the Maryland General Assembly will hold hearings on two GMO Labeling bills. One of the best ways to create public awareness of genetically modified food and its dangers is to create a stir in social media. Please help the Maryland GMO Need to Know campaign by talking about the issue in social media. [UPDATE: one hearing has been postponed. Please continue to act on the hearing that is still scheduled!)]

    Here are some easy and important tools to help you get the word out.

    1. You’ll find cool memes to share here: http://facebook.com/GMOFREEMD

    2. Post status updates, such as some of the following:

    - Please SIGN the Maryland GMO Labeling Petition at: http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/needtoknow-maryland-gmo

    - Call your Maryland representatives in support of @GMOFreeMD Bills HB1191 and SB0778. Here’s how: http://www.needtoknowmaryland.org/#!health-committees/c1yq9  Read more
