You may have food allergies and not even know it! That’s because typical symptoms that people identify as related to allergies, such as watery, itchy eyes, or sinus congestion, are just the tip of the iceberg. Many other effects of allergies are not as commonly recognized. As a result, people may not get the specific help that they actually need.
As a Doctor of Internal Medicine I see patients for all types of problems. When any patient first comes to the office, I will discuss that patient’s health history with him/her. Frequently, the fact that patients suffer from allergies has never been considered.
Drinking just one soft drink a day — whether diet or regular — may boost your risk of getting heart disease, a new study shows. That is because a soda habit increases the risk of developing a condition called metabolic syndrome, according to the new research, and that in turn boosts the chance of getting both heart disease and diabetes.
“Even one soda per day increases your risk of developing metabolic syndrome,”
says Ramachandran Vasan, MD, professor of medicine at Boston University School of Medicine and the senior author of the study, published in the July 31 issue of the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation.
To be diagnosed with metabolic syndrome, three of five criteria must be met: a large waistline, elevated blood pressure, elevated fasting blood sugar, elevated fasting triglycerides, or reduced HDL or “good” cholesterol. All of these problems can be alleviated by natural means without resorting to medications.

Iodine is an essential element whose safety has been confirmed in clinical studies and medical practice. The association of iodine deficiency and goiter (thyroid disease) has been well known for over a century. Iodine is present in every cell of the body and a host of other effects of iodine deficiency are also a matter of study. The high prevalence of iodine deficiency in the American diet may be responsible for contributing to several common maladies in our population.
