Did you make a new year's resolution to lose weight or get healthier? If so you're in very good company. And if by now, mid-January, you find that resolution increasingly hard to keep, you are also in very good company. As nutritionists in San Jose CA we see this problem every year. But the fact that it's a common problem doesn't mean the solution has to be difficult. In fact, we've made it easy! ..

January is national “hot tea month”. If you didn’t know that I think you’re in excellent company, but now that I do know our Sunnyvale medical clinic decided that it was a great excuse to share some good data about this beverage. I don’t have anything against cold tea, by the way, but since it is “national hot tea month” and January brings colder weather, I won’t argue the point. ..

There is no one holding up the average American as the picture of health and at our Sunnyvale CA medical clinic we clearly see the alarming statistics. More than 66% of us are overweight and we are approaching a 40% obesity rate. We, as a populace, are certainly not one to brag that we have the “answers” to ideal weight and health.  ..

We all love Halloween! It’s fun for all ages, but as parents we have an extra job to make it safe as well as fun. As doctors in Sunnyvale CA, we have been seeing patients for 25 years - that’s 25 Halloweens and 25 “after Halloweens” where too often patients are struggling with having ingested foods to which they react negatively and as a result feel ill, or simply overindulge in sugar, and now find themselves craving it at every turn. And that is a dangerous way to go into the holiday season! ..

The doctors here at HealthNOW Sunnyvale Functional Medicine Center like to remind our patients about healthy foods, such as broccoli. Broccoli contains two very nice compounds that make it a star vegetable in the anti-cancer category, as well as a perfect addition when you want to reduce inflammation naturally.  If you do not treat it properly, broccoli will hold on to these compounds, making them unable to perform their anti-cancer magic! ..

Mother Nature is smart; she’s brilliant in fact. How do I know? Having been trained for decades in the constantly evolving area of functional medicine and root cause medicine, it has become very clear that the worsening state of health on our planet, and most especially here in the U.S., stems from rampant, out of control inflammation. Inflammation is the known initiator of all the chronic degenerative diseases so plaguing our citizens, both young and old. What causes inflammation and how do we fix it? At our Bay Area Functional Medicine Clinic, we encourage you to enjoy Mother Nature’s bounties—the natural ones that are free of GMO, chemicals, pesticides, etc.  ..

Happy 2015! If you are like many people that we see in our San Jose health clinic, you have likely made a resolution to lose weight, get healthier, or both. If you did, you’re not only in very good company but what you’re trying to do for yourself is very smart. Obesity and overweight is creating much of the health complaints and diseases suffered by Americans. Whether the scale says a number you don’t like, or your body fat percentage is too high, or you just don’t feel right, you are part of the majority of our population who is being hindered by too much fat, too much inflammation and suffering from, or close to developing, a degenerative disease such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer or autoimmune disease. This is shortening people’s lives, escalating healthcare costs and causing a lot of misery. ..
