Vitamin D

     I remember thinking years ago when everyone started wearing sunscreen all the time that we would probably eventually be hearing about Vit D deficiencies. Yes, now it does seem that way but the truth is a bit more complicated.  Here are a couple of articles I liked explaining Vitamin D.

Vitamin D: What It Is, Why You Need It, & Why Any Supplement Won’t Do

Yes It Is Safe to Eat Butter Now!

   

     Being, getting and staying healthy is a complicated subject and varies from person to person and culture to culture. The common denominator may be that those who eat the most pure and unadulterated food and maintain low stress levels seem to have the best outcome. Of course this is a generalization because each person is unique but it is a good place to start. 

      In the 70’s “they” had us substitute fake foods like margarine, egg beaters etc.   Problems resulting from white sugar and white flour were lightly spoken about and salt was vilified.  Smoking at one point was said to be good for you too.  Today foods with fat are slowly becoming decriminalized. Here are a few recent articles I have gathered on the subject of fat now being on the menu again:

Ending the War on Fat By Bryan Walsh
Ending the War on Butter By Jane Weaver
Butter Is Back—Processed Foods Are Identified as Real Culprits in Heart Disease By Dr. Joseph Mercola
New Science Destroys the Saturated Fat Myth By Dr.  Joseph Mercola
A book by Uffe Ravnskov titled Fat and Cholesterol are Good for You  is a worthwhile read.  After years of trying to make sense of the science Dr.  Uffe Ravnskov clears up a lot of controversy.

Book Club

Update….

If you are reading along with us we are be reading two short sort of light books for the summer.

An old book but always relevant : The Tao of Pooh by Benjamin  Hoff  

 and The Madwoman in the Volvo: My Year of Raging Hormones by Sandra Tsing Loh

A new book that I thought was a great way to laugh at the situation we as women find ourselves in.

Doctored The Movie

I waited over 30 years for this movie to be made. This is my 30th year in practice and even I learned so much from this movie. I had posted this before when it was out in theaters.  I am re-posting it because I LOVED IT SO MUCH!!

Now you can watch  Doctored The Movie  online here.

I hope you will take the time to see it and let me know what you think!
