This proves that mainstream medicine has no clue what causes this brain-wasting condition. So what’s really going on? A big part of the problem is in the very air we breathe. And the closer you live to a major roadway or urban center, the worse it is&hel...

What is Black Spot Poison Ivy?
Discussion Poison ivy (PI, Toxicodendron radicans) is a common plant in North America that causes allergic contact dermatitis. Poison oak and sumac also cause similar problems. The rash usually appears as linear erythematous papules or vesicles occurring soon after exposure. Patients often do not identify the exposure specifically but will say they were walking/playing in gardens, fields or woods. PI can be a small plant, vine or even a shrub. The coloring changes over the growing season. Fires may also be a source as burning the plants and being in the smoke can cause extensive lesions on the body. The plant has 3 leaves...

FYI, Almonds Are Not Nuts. And Neither Are A Lot Of Other 'Nuts.'
We all know almonds are a healthy snack and a great dessert ingredient. But get this: almonds are not nuts. They’re seeds of a fruit. More specifically, they’re seeds of the almond fruit, which grows on a tree and is very similar to a peach, botanically speaking. When the almond fruit is ripe, we remove its flesh and shell, then eat the small kernel inside. Check it out: Here’s why almonds are not nuts.  In the botanical world, a nut is a dry, hard-shelled fruit. But as you can see, almonds have a fleshy outer layer. Therefore they’re technically not nuts, but a di...

5 Things You Should Know Before Trying an Elimination Diet
By Cynthia Sass, MPH, RD Suspect you might have a sensitivity to gluten or dairy, but aren't sure which is the culprit? You might be considering trying an elimination diet. This short-term eating plan has gained popularity recently as a way to identify potential food issues, including allergies, intolerances, and triggers of irksome symptoms--from bloating, joint pain, and fatigue to skin issues like eczema.
