  • Women’s Health Tidbits

    By Dr. Swetlikoff on September 9, 2018

    In most families, the woman is likely to lead in the health decisions for not only herself, but also for her spouse and children.  Women tend to be more proactive and holistic in their attitudes and often see the “big picture” better than men.  A woman’s unique anatomy and physiology makes her prone to many medical circumstances foreign to a man.  Menstrual issues, birth control, fertility, pregnancy, menopause, breast health, gynecological cancers and osteoporosis are just a few examples.  Eating …READ MORE

  • Are Cellphones Dangerous?

    By Dr. Swetlikoff on August 26, 2018

    We are all surrounded by electromagnetic fields (EMFs).  The sun and earth produce their own natural forces which we cannot escape.  But modern lifestyles and technologies have now chronically exposed humans to fields much different.  For example, AC electric fields from house wiring and corded appliances, power lines and radio frequencies are part of everyday living.  Cellphones, cordless phones, Wi-Fi routers, baby monitors, smart meters and Bluetooth devices are everywhere.  The real fact is that these …READ MORE

    Health Tips

    Coffee…Not All Bad!

    beverage, breakfast, brewed coffee

     Coffee: As one of the most consumed beverages in the world, coffee data continues to evolve.
    Research is shedding new light on the benefits of regular, but moderate coffee consumption. Here are a few highlights….

    Coffee is loaded with antioxidants and polyphenols that quench “bad” free radicals. Also, a reasonable source of vitamins B1, B5, B3 and minerals magnesium, manganese, and potassium.

    Caffeine certainly contributes to many of the properties we associate with coffee. It can increase energy, memory, mood, reaction time and physical performance. It inhibits the brain chemical adenosine, which makes us sleepy and relaxed, but increases dopamine and norepinephrine, which are “feel good” chemicals. Caffeine stimulates fat burning and increases metabolism by 3-10 %. Consequently, it is found in all supplement “fat burners”.

    Coffee has been shown to reduce the risk of getting some diseases. They are: type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s and dementia, Parkinson’s, liver cirrhosis, depression, stroke and liver/colorectal/prostate and uterine cancers.

    Not all people do well with coffee. Some are allergic to the roasted bean, which can cause stomach cramping, diarrhea, headaches and just a sense of feeling unwell. Others, it may temporary raise blood pressure and heart rate, increase anxiety and restlessness and worsen insomnia. Coffee should not be drunk late at night and ideally, not when pregnant.

    Dark roast coffee has less caffeine in it than lighter roasts. Drip coffee has more caffeine in it than espresso. Black coffee is best, minus the sugar, dairy products and flavorings.

    Buy high quality, fresh, organic whole beans when possible. Grind the beans before use. Like all things in life, moderation is best.
