The Canola Oil Con

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Dec 11, 2018

The Canola Con

I've been telling my patients the stay away from Canola oil for years. Dr. Ron Grisanti from the Functional Medicine University says it best.

We have all be fooled “again”...

Just when you think we are doing something good for our bodies we learn that we have been conned.

This has led to today's case of the Canola Con!

How many people use canola oil for cooking?

How many people choose mayonnaise, salad dressings, baked goods, and other processed foods containing canola oil?

I would say a bunch!

In addition, the major fast food chains brag that they no longer have trans fats, but have switched to canola oil. They use it for their french fries, burgers, salad dressings and baked goods, exchanging it for trans fatty acid-laden genetically engineered soybean oil.

Would I eat it? No.

Understanding Food Intolerance and How it Can Affect your Brain and Body

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Nov 27, 2018

Understanding Food Tolerance

The gastrointestinal (GI) tract is the region of our body that directly interacts with the external world through the foods we eat. Our GI tract performs two main functions. First, it allows us to absorb nutrients critical to maintaining our health. Second, its protective immune system shields us from pathogens, such as bacteria and foreign invaders. The area of our GI tract—from the esophagus to the rectum—where we absorb nutrients and have our protective immune system consists of a specialized line of cells, called the “mucosal layer.” 

Identifying and Removing Reactive Foods

Identifying and removing reactive foods can be a good first-step strategy that may impact energy levels, skin appearance, digestive comfort, well-being, mood, and more. When multiple food reactions are identified, your healthcare professional may recommend removing those foods from the diet. Taking steps to support the GI mucosa and immune system and address any environmental concerns, as recommended by your healthcare professional, may also be beneficial.

4 Ways to keep in Top Shape As We Age

We can count on getting older every day...until we stop aging and join the next dimension. While we are still here on terra firma the choices we make in four categories can make a huge difference in our vitality.

Our physical body is a machine. An advanced, incredible machine, but still at machine. It matters what we do to it and what we put into it on a regular basis. If we take care of our machine, it will take care of us as we age. Health and wellness must be a priority. Nutrition, exercise, inflammation and brain activation can all determine our quality of life.

Obesity is on the rise in the United States, with the number of Americans suffering from obesity increasing faster than ever— On top of that, other studies show that almost half of Americans do not get the amount of exercise they need to maintain good health.
