Tips from the Doctor

What supplements should I take?

Many patients ask me what supplements should they take. This is going to vary depending on the individual needs of each patient but I will give some general recommendations. First of all everybody should be taking a multi vit/min, make sure this is of good quality, preferably organic, not what you can buy at Walgreens or Costco. After that then some Omega 3, which in my case I take some fish oil and some krill, since fish oil benefits more the cardiovascular system and the krill the joints, next I would recommend some antioxidant (astaxanthin, resveratrol, etc), then some vit D3 and B12, and if older than 40 yrs old, some CoQ10. This is just basic supplementation, personally I take a little bit more than that based on my conditions and family medical history/genetics.

Fall in Chinese Medicine

The sages use to observe nature and apply the same principles to attain balance and health. Fall is time to start retrieving and withdrawing to prepare for the winter. It is a time to let go of what is not useful and harvest what is useful and save it. This apply to mind, body, and spirit. Letting go of  not useful diet habits, toxic thinking, and bad spiritual attachments. It is a time of transition from the total yang of the summer to the total yin of the winter. Any time we are transitioning were are vulnerable, prone to invasion, so you have to protect yourself. Fall is ruled by the metal element and the lungs, that is why disease during this time attack the lungs such as cold and flu. Start to slow down (physically, mentally, and emotionally) and warming yourself to prepare to store for the winter ahead. Acupuncture, yoga, meditation can help us slow down, herbs such as onions, ginger, cinnamon can warm us, astragalus can help us create that protection (immune booster). Follow and respect the season so that you can have a smooth and healthy transition.

Primal (Paleo) lifestyle poster

Similar to Paleo’s diet Mark Sisson has made some changes and called it Primal Blueprint, I like his website (primalblueprint.com) and blog (marksdailyapple.com). It is a gluten free diet and might not be good for everybody but it will help a lot of people, worth given it a try. Any questions feel free to leave a comment.
