Natural Ways to Deal with Allergies
With spring in the air, seemingly all of Santa Fe is suffering with allergy symptoms.
Allergy is the fifth leading chronic disease in the U.S. among all ages, and the third most common chronic disease among children under 18 years old. More Americans than ever before say they are suffering from allergies. It is estimated that some 50 million Americans suffer from some type of allergy and the overall prevalence of allergies has been steadily climbing since the early 1980’s - across all age, sex, and racial groups.
In this presentation, Dr. Stuart Garber will discuss how to safely and effectively treat allergies without the side effects of drugs.
Building Strong Bones
Osteoporosis is the most common bone disease. In the United States today, 10 million individuals already have osteoporosis and 18 million more have low bone density. Out of every five people with osteoporosis, one is a man. That’s 2 million men with osteoporosis, most of who probably thought it was only a women’s disease!
Fractures are the most common and serious complication of osteoporosis, typically of the hip or vertebra. In the elderly however, a fracture does not just mean a broken bone. Becoming bed ridden as a result of a fracture can lead to severe complications and often death.
Achieving and maintaining optimum bone health is not difficult if you follow a few simple steps, all of which have overall health benefits as well. Dr. Stuart Garber will show you how.
“Research has found that loss of bone density may be an even better predictor of death . . . “ Being Mortal, Dr. Atul Gawande
Getting a Good Night’s Sleep
Sleep disorders affect as much as 34 percent of the U.S. population. That’s more than a hundred million people - a virtual epidemic. Chronic sleep loss may speed the onset or increase the severity of age-related conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, and memory loss.
The list of side effects from prescription sleep drugs is long, with the most common being headache, drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, muscle and joint pain. Sleep walking and, scarily, sleep driving! One popular sleep drug was even shown to cause people to sleepwalk into their kitchen, consuming thousands of calories with no memory of it in the morning!
In this presentation, Dr. Stuart Garber will discuss why so many of us don’t get a good night’s sleep and what we can do about it - safely and effectively.
