I hear it all the time from my patients: "Dr. Smith, I'm eating just like you told me to -- lots of grains, beans, fruits, and vegetables, nothing fatty or sugary. Now you're recommending supplements, too? Taking so many pills just doesn't seem natural.

It's a perfectly valid question, and one which you may have wondered about at one time or another. I'll tell you exactly what I tell my patients: If you want to fight disease and achieve maximum life span, you can't do it with diet alone. You need the extra nutritional boost that only supplements can provide. Lots of folks take supplements nowadays. For as many as 40 percent of American adults -- about 100 million of us -- these pills have become nutritional staples. They're also the backbone of a thriving, $10-billion-per-year industry. In many ways, supplements are to humans what fertilizer is to plants. Give a plant adequate amounts of sunlight and water, and it will survive. Add some nutrient-rich fertilizer (organic, of course), and the plant will thrive.

As many as 40% of Americans deal with insomnia, and most of those people use pharmaceuticals like Lunesta or Ambien to help them deal with it. Here are some natural tips to help deal with your insomnia, and get back on the sleep track.

"You're not healthy unless your sleep is healthy," - Dr. William Dement, father of sleep medicine "A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book." - Old Irish proverb I don't know too many doctors who have "sleep books" that include much else beyond Ambien, Lunesta, Rozerem, Sonata, Halcion, Restoril and Desyrel, the common drugs used to treat insomnia. Side effects like drowsiness the following day, confusion, inattentiveness, and drug tolerance and dependence are enough to push you through the withdrawal symptoms and not look back. Did I mention drug interactions, rebound insomnia and the possibility that these medications may mask underlying problems?

Magnesium is one of the most beneficial minerals you can supplement with most individuals are deficient. Learn more about the health benefits of magnesium.

I find it very funny that more doctors aren't clued in to the benefits of magnesium, because we use it all the time in conventional medicine. But we never stop to think about why or how important it is to our general health or why it helps our bodies function better. I remember using magnesium when I worked in the emergency room. It was a critical "medication" on the crash cart. If someone was dying of a life-threatening arrhythmia (or irregular heart beat), we used intravenous magnesium. If someone was constipated or needed to prepare for colonoscopy, we gave them milk of magnesia or a green bottle of liquid magnesium citrate, which emptied their bowels.

Learn the facts about California's Proposition 37 Right To Know campaign to label genetically engineered foods.

What is Proposition 37? Proposition 37 is a common-sense November ballot measure that will help consumers make informed choices about the food they eat. Written with broad input from food groups, industry, science, legal and health experts Prop. 37 (The California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act) requires clear labels letting consumers know if foods are genetically modified.

When the going gets tough, the tough (and smart) get going to health retreats. This has been my fallback position for almost a decade now since I started searching for ways to reset in an increasingly manic life.

Organic devotees are attracted by the prospect of clean food devoid of harmful pesticides that tastes as it should and a diet built of produce that is seasonal and fresh. But unless you live in Queensland where the culture and the climate make for easy organic pickings, tracking down the good stuff can be tricky. Not to mention that organic food is still relatively expensive compared to conventional produce. Some consider it the domain only of "the rich".

You may have seen the news late last week about the latest "Presidential Advisory" on dietary fats released from the American Heart Association (AHA) published online in Circulation.

The American Heart Association was founded by a group of cardiologists in 1924. Its purpose is to fight heart disease and stroke by funding research, promoting certain public health policies, and providing education to the public. With heart disease being the leading cause of death in the United States, this is clearly important work, but their effectiveness is clouded by politics and a questionable interpretation of science. They have repeatedly promoted the replacement of saturated fat with omega-6 (inflammatory) polyunsaturated fats in order to reduce heart disease risk, a recommendation that simply has not been supported by current research.

Have you ever heard of DPA, also called diphenylamine? This is a chemical used widely on apples after they have been harvested. DPA is used to prevent what the industry calls storage scald -brown spots that appear on the fruit.

As a result of tests done in 2010 by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) which found 80% of apples on US produce shelves contain on average 0.42 ppm of DPA, Europe will be cutting its imports unless DPA numbers can drastically reduce. How will North Americans respond though? With there being 4 times more DPA than what's allowable in Europe, American standards seem much more lenient and the care taken to protect citizens from hazardous chemicals is not as strict a priority.

You were working all day and when you arrived home, you began to notice, something's not right. Your throat feels scratchy, head a bit dizzy, and just when you are about to figure it out, you have begun sneezing. You just catch a cold.

Everywhere you turn and touch is a source of different microorganisms that are too nasty enough, they could ruin the whole week if you don't have the best countermeasure in your arsenal. The cost that ordinary cold could inflict on the entire economy is staggering...

For far too long there has been hand-wringing over the fact that a minimum of 116 million Americans experience chronic pain every year, with a national cost ranging between $560 billion and $635 billion.

This turns out to be a conservative estimate because children and military personnel have not been included. Prevention and pain treatment are thwarted by inadequate treatment, delay or outright inaccessibility of health care.

FOR MANY of us, chiropractic care is synonymous with neck-cracking antics we would rather avoid.

We imagine that if we are already in terrible pain with a back injury or neck strain, the last thing in the world we would want to do is place any one of our seven, precious cervical vertebrae in the hands of such a therapy.
