September 2018 Newsletter: Back to School Learning Opportunities for All
SEPTEMBER 2018 NEWSLETTER
Can you believe it is already the end of summer and Back to School season? In honor of going back to school this month’s newsletter focuses on learning opportunities. There are suggestions from Dr. Brockenshire for back to school nutrition tips for your kids, a link to a web site that makes low carb and keto diets simple, a review of the importance of calcium and magnesium, and several of my favorite YouTube channels.
September is also a big month for national and Jewish Holidays. The office will be closed on the following days:
We hear a lot about the importance of calcium and magnesium to our health. I’ve attended several seminars recently where this was emphasized. One presenter said he checks for calcium, magnesium, and other minerals on all his clients. Why are minerals so important to us? They assist the body in energy production - minerals contain no calories or energy. They work with vitamins and enzymes to fuel all our metabolic processes. Our health cannot be optimized if these processes are impaired.
Another presenter stated that 74% of the US population is deficient in magnesium. In preparing for this article, a quick Google search reveals another website saying 80%. Quick searches state similar high numbers for calcium deficiency.
Are you ready for the kids to go back to school? Are the kids ready to go back to school? Either way it is here, and the following brief video provides some healthy suggestions as you prepare. I have all the products he mentions in the office and others as well.
“Thanks again for all your help in balancing my gut issues. The dark circles and bags under my eyes have been greatly reduced. My skin rashes have all cleared up. My digestion is working perfectly!! My thinking is more clear. I have been able to stop using the prescription Metrogel 1% for rosacea…It's amazing how your gut affects every part of your body!!! Your supplements are fantastic!!” C.W.
“I reached out to Bernie after hearing positive outcomes for two colleagues who see him. I trust their perspectives, had some idea of what his recommendations would involve, and was ready to take on my declining health and wellness! I was feeling overweight, tired, and simply unwell.
At my first appointment, Bernie identified two food categories to avoid, and I immediately started planning my food menus to reflect his suggestions. Within just a couple of days, I felt like a different person. My sleep has been improved, and my energy doesn’t lag during the day as it has for so long. My digestion is improving, and I haven’t felt hungry or deprived, which has often been the case when trying to make healthier changes in the past.
I look forward to continued improvements in my overall health and wellness and appreciate Bernie’s patience and availability for follow-up questions!” K.L.
