How To Choose A Calcium Supplement?

Look for a supplement that has the following combinations of vitamins and minerals: calcium, magnesium, Boron, and Vitamin D; and if possible even Manganese, Zinc and Vitamin K. You don’t have to buy all of these separately. You want to look for a product that ideally has all of them together. You can check with your local health food store and if you are not sure, then feel free to call us. We will be happy to help you choosing a good product.

Weak Bones? Are You At Risk?

Studies show that eating a diet higher in fruits and vegetables (especially the green leafy vegetables) decreases bone loss. This is probably because it helps you to keep alkaline. You can check the ph of your urine to see if you are acidic or alkaline. You want to ideally measure >6.8. (If you can’t find urine pH strips at the pharmacy, let us know because we have them at the clinic). The best times to check your pH levels seems to be on waking, 10am and/or 4pm.

Are Your Hormones Driving You Crazy?

BHRT refer to hormones that are identical to the ones that we naturally have in our bodies. These natural hormones are very different to the synthetic hormones normally used in conventional medicine and therefore, they don’t have the same side effects. Conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is composed of synthetic estrogen (oral estrone) and synthetic progesterone (progestin) and they carry unacceptable risks of breast cancer, heart attacks and strokes. The use of bioidentical hormones in dosages that restore normal physiological levels are safe and even protective against many diseases.

75% Of People In North America Are Deficient In Vitamin D! Are you?

Recent studies show that in order to receive the best levels of protection our blood vitamin D levels should be about 120-200 nmol/l. I personally don’t like to recommend cod liver oil as a vitamin D supplement because it also contain Vitamin A and too much vitamin A taken for long periods of time can cause health problems. Some foods that contain vitamin D include: canned sardines, salmon, tuna, shrimp, butter, sunflower seeds, liver, eggs, mushroom.
