Posted on April 18, 2012 by Integrative Nutrition

If you”re reading this blog, chances are good that you make a concerted effort to eat well. You probably do this to look and feel your very best, free from unpronounceable ingredients and potentially harmful processed food chemicals. But do you give the same level of care to your outer wellness that you give to your inner wellness?

Harmful toxins can be absorbed not just by consumption, but also through contact with your skin and through the air you breathe. That means that the products you use around your home for cleaning, hygiene, and beauty really matter.

Doctors Learn to Cook Healthy, ‘Crave-able’ FoodsNY Times

Dr. Eisenberg is the founder and chief officiant of “Healthy Kitchens/Healthy Lives,” an “‘interfaith marriage,” as he calls it, among physicians, public health researchers and distinguished chefs that seeks to tear down the firewall between “healthy” and “ crave-able” cuisine. Although physicians are on the front lines of the nation’s diabetes and obesity crises, many graduate from medical school with little knowledge of nutrition, let alone cooking.

How to Start Your Urban Garden

Posted on April 11, 2012 by Integrative Nutrition

Listen up, healthy-cooking city dwellers – if you want to get as close as possible to your food’s source, the farmer’s market isn’t your last stop.

Even if growing your own food in a world of concrete and brick seems like a pipe dream, with a little flexibility, you too can cultivate your own garden paradise right in your own one-bedroom sixth-story home. You even have at least one crucial advantage over traditional farmers: climate control!

Planting your own vegetables can be not only economical and rewarding, but also decorative, soothing, and healthier than buying conventionally grown produce.

Here’s how you can get started:

Chickens Are Eating Arsenic? Time to Buy Organic

Posted on April 10, 2012 by Integrative Nutrition

Prozac. Tylenol. Benadryl. Though these may sound like the contents of a medicine cabinet, they are in fact the chemicals that are being routinely fed to industrially farmed chickens. According to Nicholas Kristof’s recent New York Times article “Arsenic in our Chicken?”, it gets worse: researchers have also discovered the presence of arsenic and banned antibiotics in poultry feathers.

As it turns out, feeding chickens trace amounts of arsenic reduces infections and improves the pinkish hue of the meat. Though there’s no evidence yet that these low levels of arsenic are harmful, the practice is still illegal in the E.U. and Canada – and as of last week, Maryland is to become the first state in the U.S. to ban arsenic in chicken feed.

As for Prozac, Tylenol, and Benadryl, Kristof reports that they are all used as sedatives to reduce anxiety among factory-farmed chickens. Crowded and often brutal conditions result in birds that are in constant distress, a state that stunts their growth and results in tougher meat. To counteract the drowsiness caused by these sedatives, chickens are also fed caffeine so they can stay awake longer and continue eating.

Most holiday feasts leave us with a full fridge of leftovers for the week, and at Easter time that often means an endless supply of hard-boiled eggs. Underneath that multi-colored shell is a perfectly good egg, so don’t let it go to waste! For a quick and easy snack, try this recipe from fitsugar- a healthy twist on the classic deviled egg! By replacing the mayo-yolk mixture with hummus, you can cut the unhealthy fat and keep the protein. The almonds provide healthy fats to help lower cholesterol, plus they add a nice decorative touch. Serve the eggs with a salad for an easy weeknight dinner, or keep them on hand for a healthy snack on the go.

WHO”s Ready to Celebrate World Health Day?

Much like Integrative Nutrition (where we’re all about rocking the ripple effect), the World Health Organization (WHO) believes in using global efforts to promote and achieve good health around the world.

If you’re not familiar with it, the WHO is the United Nations’ primary health authority, and is responsible for everything from creating health-related guidelines and guiding public policy to examining health trends and their effect on the population at large. According to the organization, “health is a shared responsibility, involving equitable access to essential care and collective defense against transnational threats.”
