Bacteria and your broken heart
In your screening for heart disease, I bet your doctor will never think to check your gut. And that may well be where your heart problems start. Let me explain… Your gut plays a critical role in your overall health. It’s a major part of your body’s ecosystem. It’s home to trillions of bacteria, viruses and fungi. They make up your “microbiome.” Doctors are beginning to pay attention when it comes to these bacteria. But they’re still missing the big picture. This microcosm affects just about every organ and body system. Some of these gut bugs cause disease and infection. Others boost your immune system. Stil...

Drugs, money and your heart
I was really excited to see a recent headline that said heart doctors should discuss herbal medicines with their patients. The recommendation came from a study in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.1 I thought this was a real breakthrough. I thought it meant cardiologists had finally seen the light… Boy, was I wrong… The article said doctors should learn about herbal medicines so they could STOP their patients from using them. You see, supplement use is at an all-time high. About 70% of Americans take them. That’s a lot of people. And Big Pharma would love to capture that market. So they have a re...

This Common Ingredient Is Making You Extremely Bloated
By Lily Puckett for Teen Vogue. Courtesy of CNP Montrose Plus: 2 other freaky health effects. Salt is impossible to avoid, no matter how hard you try. If you've eaten food prepared by someone other than yourself, you've probably eaten more salt than you should; if you've eaten food prepared by yourself, you've probably done it too. The good news is you definitely have to have some salt in your diet -- but probably not as much as you'd wish. The human body needs 200 milligrams of sodium, or about 0.5 gram of salt, a day to function properly, but according to the American Heart Association, the average American consumes 3,...

5 Healthy Eating Habits To Adopt This Year
By Cynthia Sass, MPH, RD Nutrition is a hot topic these days, yet many of my clients still struggle with consistently following through with "the basics," and the stats show that missing the mark on many healthy habits is the norm. For example, the median daily intake of produce for U.S. adults is 1.1 servings of fruit and 1.6 servings of veggies, far below the minimum recommended five daily servings. If you're going to set just one goal for 2015, I think eating more produce should be it, but I've also listed four others below. I know you've heard them before, but they are without a doubt the most tried-and-true, impactf...

8 Whole Grains You're Probably Not Eating
By Cynthia Sass, MPH, RD You've probably had oatmeal for breakfast, and if you haven't yet tried quinoa I bet you've heard of it, or have seen it on a menu or social media recipe (it's all over Pinterest!). But there are many other whole grains you may not be familiar with, and incorporating them into your food repertoire is well worth the learning curve. Whole grains are white hot among chefs and nutritionists. They're versatile, satisfying and in addition to providing slow-burning starch (think sustained energy!), vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, whole grains are health protective. Their consumption is tied to a lo...

You're Eating Fish All Wrong
By Cynthia Sass, MPH, RD Eating fish has been tied with lower rates of heart disease, stroke, depression and Alzheimer's disease. But how you eat it may be the real key to reaping its benefits. Recent research from University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine concluded that study volunteers who regularly ate fish had larger brain volumes in regions associated with memory and cognition, but only if the fish baked or broiled, not fried. Baking and broiling are also better for your waistline. For example, a dozen fried shrimp can pack 280 calories, versus a mere 85 calories for 12 shrimp that have been steamed or broiled. To...

Better food choices for better heart health: simple substitutions improve the diet
It's easier to follow a heart-healthy diet than you think. All it takes are some simple changes in food choices, reports the October 2013 Harvard Heart Letter. Wholesale changes aren't necessarily needed. Instead, small changes can make a big difference, says registered dietitian Kathy McManus, director of the department of nutrition at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women's Hospital. "The typical American diet contains a large proportion of unhealthy fats, too few fruits and vegetables, too much sugar and sodium, and too little fiber," she says. "This contributes to risk of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity." The Harva...
