May 2011 Newsletter – I’m Opening a Second Office and Wine Recommendations for Diabetics?

Well, if April showers bring May flowers, we are certainly looking at a Flower Power month!  I hope you all had a great month of April and enjoyed Spring Break. 

I have some very exciting news.  I’m opening up a second office this month.  I’ll be joining many wonderful practitioners at GreenSquare Center for the Healing Arts.  Many of Milwaukee’s top healers have either moved their offices there or opened an additional location.  To learn more about GreenSquare click here: http://greensquarecenter.com/
It was an interesting month for me as I had quite a few takers on my offer for a free Nutritional Response Testing appointment.  I’d like to thank everyone who volunteered, particularly during the early stages as I was muddling my way through.  However after doing over 30 consults, I’m liking what I’m seeing and we’ve uncovered a few interesting things with different clients.  I’ll be continuing my offer of a free NRT consult for one more month, so please let me know if you are interested.  I’ve also arranged to shadow a chiropractor with extensive NRT experience.  I begin the “internship” later this week!
The featured article of the month describes the importance of the fat soluble vitamins.  One of them is Vitamin D.  Ever wonder why so many people have Vitamin D deficiencies?  Read the article below and find out.  It appears that the American Diabetes Association has hit a new low with wine recommendations for diabetics.  See below for why that irks me (to put it mildly).  And, for those who celebrate Passover and ever wondered the history behind the Maxwell House Haggadah, that is explained below!
The Importance of Fat Soluble Vitamins
As many of you know, I am a follower and believer in the healthy food ideas of Dr. Weston Price and I have made many referrals to the Weston A. Price Foundation website in past newsletters.  One of his major discoveries was the importance of the fat soluble vitamins in our diet.  In fact, he found that the healthy native diets that produced healthy human beings had 10 times the fat soluble vitamins as in the American diet of that time.  To learn more about the fat soluble vitamins and why they are so important to your health click here: http://brwellness.blogspot.com/2011/04/know-your-nutrients-fat-soluble.html
Wine Recommendations for Diabetics?
Well, I thought I had seen it all from the American Diabetes Association until my recent edition of Diabetes Forecast arrived earlier in the week.  One of the main articles featured wine recommendations!  Somehow that just doesn’t make sense.  Last time I checked wine contains to ingredients that aren’t very healthy, particularly for diabetics – sugar and alcohol! I guess if you want to keep the diabetes drugs and products moving you need to keep your diabetic customers!  There were a couple of other “gems” this month as well.  For my full “rant” click here: http://brwellness.blogspot.com/2011/04/wine-for-diabetics-whats-next-from.html

Coffee, Passover, and the Maxwell House Hagaddah
In case you missed one of my earlier blog postings this is quite the interesting story of the connection between these three.  For the full story click here: http://brwellness.blogspot.com/2011/04/coffee-passover-and-maxwell-house.html
Have a Happy and Healthy Month!
