Another Happy Client Story

bio-pic-paraco2“Lenny is the classic example of what a care giver should be, Human First Doctor Second. 

Amongst other complications my nine year old daughter was walking around with her head on her right shoulder. Lenny’s first analysis was this will take a lot of work and time to get back to normal. 
Realizing the severity of the situation Lenny despite having scheduled time off for his own medical situation called me and offered to treat my child who was in severe pain. 
Needless to say Lenny’s first analysis was completely wrong, his deep concern and his care giving ability resulted in a solution with five visits.
Now we have a happy bouncing playful child again,thanks to a deeply committed care giver.”

Importance of Iodine and Iron to Child Health Recognized in EU

Positive European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) health claims linking iodine, iron and child development have been adopted and written into the EU legislature.

Commission Regulation (EU) No 958/2010 of 22 October 2010 refusing to authorize a health claim made on foods, other than those referring to the reduction of disease risk and to child development and health relevance.

The new claims state:

* Iodine contributes to the normal growth of children
* Iron contributes to normal cognitive development of children

Let’s start with the IODINE:

In my office, Union Square Spinal Care, I often test for adequate Iodine with a simple test you can do at home. Take regular Iodine tincture (2%), and paint a one inch square on the skin, where it won’t rub against skin or clothing. Observe how long this takes to absorb. I you can still see it after 24 hours, then your nutritional status is good. Of course the faster it is absorbed, the greater the body’s need.

My secretary recently did this test, and to our amazement the Iodine coloration was gone in fifteen minutes!

Another patient of mine started a daily supplement as a result of this test; she dropped nine pounds of fat in just a couple of months without any other dietary changes or exercise.

I have been very impressed with the Iodoral brand formula that is a combination of Iodine and Iodide. Do a quick “Google” search, and you will see the expert agreement here. What isn’t being brought to light is the simplicity of iodine deficiency testing, that I just described.

Flu Shot Worthless?

Late last year HFA published a study from the Mayo Clinic showing how flu shots in children actually increased the likelihood of hospitalization. Now a new study is stating that flu shots in the elderly mostly likely have no health benefits at all.

There is no evidence to support the contention that the influenza vaccine administered to the over 65s is of any more use than opening the windows and washing hands, a new study from the Cochrane Collaboration claims.

“Our analysis is compiled using millions of data from 40 seasons worldwide. What we have seen is that the influenza vaccine can at best have a very small effect,” said Thomas Jefferson, one of the authors of the report.
