BPA and Blood Pressure

March 16, 2016 | No Comments | SAFM Team

A Quick Clinical Tip of the day! At long last, we have an extremely high-quality study showing that we DO absorb high amounts of BPA from beverages in cans.  And that the BPA causes a relatively rapid increase in blood pressure.  Don’t miss the fundamentals in your session work with clients/patients.  Encourage them to eat […]

March 16, 2016 | No Comments | SAFM Team

Don’t look further than you really need to in order to find interconnectedness in the body.  You know already that constipation is a typical symptom of suboptimal thyroid function.  But of course this isn’t limited merely to the colon.  Suboptimal thyroid function affects motility affects throughout the entire GI tract.  It also promotes fewer cleansing […]

Microbes, loose stools and fat malabsorption

March 16, 2016 | No Comments | SAFM Team

A Quick Clinical Tip of the day!

A Quick Clinical Tip of the day! For your clients who suffer from gout, you can help them to find rapid relief with tart cherry extract.   Remember: it’s got to be tart cherry (not your everyday late summer produce aisle offering).  Studies show tart cherry can lower uric acid, reduce C-reactive protein (CRP), and cause less frequent gout […]

NSAIDS: The Hidden Root Cause?

February 29, 2016 | No Comments | SAFM Team

Advil, Motrin, Naprosyn, Aleve, Aspirin…. Make sure you do a thorough medication history with your new clients and patients.  It’s amazing how an extended course of NSAID over-the-counter painkillers can be a key root cause of downstream disease, dysfunction, and imbalance in the body.  And most people don’t even think to mention it to you, […]
