New Recommendations for Pregnant and Breastfeeding Women, and Children

June 12, 2014

pregnant_womanFederal officials on Tuesday announced major changes in advice to pregnant and breastfeeding women by recommending consumption of at least 8 ounces of low-mercury fish per week.

It is the first time that the Environmental Protection Agency and Food and Drug Administration have issued recommendations on the minimum amount of fish that pregnant women and children should eat. The previous advisory, issued in 2004, included only maximum amounts to protect their fetuses and young children from mercury, which can harm developing brains and reduce IQs. Click here to read more.

That is a good step in the right direction.  Now we need to be made aware of the levels of radioactive chemicals showing up in the fish as that is equally if not more concerning to human health.

The Value of Having a Purpose

May 17, 2014

GirlswithPlanetI recently was a panelist at the American Association of University Women  to discuss holistic approaches to women’s health, where I found myself talking a lot about purpose in life.  What is the point of investing in your health, being proactive, and preventing health challenges down the road?  The point is so that you can feel strong enough to fulfill your purpose(s) in life.

So, it was timely to see this new research study (NOT that we need to spend millions on research studies to prove what we all know intuitively) on the value of having a purpose in life. Click here to read more about the study that included 7,000 Americans, as published by the BBC News.

For some, one’s purpose in life is to go above and beyond the call of duty to improve our local community and the quality of life for children and their families.  The Above and Beyond Awards gala does an excellent job of honoring those people, in the trenches, who are doing just that.  The local Above and Beyond Awards gala is being held this June 21st, 2014 at the Wyndham Avenue of the Arts Hotel.  Click here to register and please contact me at 949-715-9321 if you are interested or know someone who is interested in participating as a sponsor at the event.  The list of honorees is impressive and learning about their tireless contributions  is humbling and inspiring!

Banned Pesticide Linked to Alzheimer’s Disease

February 13, 2014

DementiaWomanI was discussing the underlying causes of Alzheimer’s disease with a colleague today, while at RoxSpa Newport Beach, and came across this article, also posted today, making the association between the pesticide DDT and the production of amyloid plaques in Alzheimer’s patients.  Though DDT was banned from use in the US in 1972, other countries continue to use it and consequently the chemical still finds its way into our cells. I’ve taught physicians about the association between DDT and breast cancer in  continuing medical education lectures through the American College for Advancement in Medicine and the American Nutraceutical Association over the years but this is the first reference I’ve seen  making a possible connection to this pesticide’s detrimental effects on the brain.  Read more here.

Autoimmune Thyroid Disease On the Rise

February 3, 2014

Thyroid_systemAutoimmune reactions to the thyroid gland go largely undetected and cause many deleterious health effects including unexplained fatigue, weight gain, infertility and depression. There are an estimated 13 million Americans each year that have this treatable condition that go undiagnosed and needlessly suffer.  And I predict that this number will rise dramatically, as we are exposed to more radiation and environmental toxins then ever before. Click here for a recent article on this topic published in the Journal of the Association for the Advancement of Restorative Medicine.  I have given lectures for thousands of physicians over the years on ways to properly diagnose and treat this condition, and hopefully their patients are benefiting from the training.  Our patients experience “miraculous” health benefits from proper treatment using prescription natural thyroid medication and simple diet and lifestyle changes. Their depression lifts, weight is no longer an issue, and energy levels rise.

Here’s to a healthy new you in the new year!

Thyroid and Infertility

January 6, 2014

happy_babyMillions of people worldwide suffer with infertility and recurrent miscarriage and in thousands of unexplained cases, hypothyroidism may be the underlying cause. The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists has warned that 1 in 10 Americans suffer from thyroid disease. Despite this staggering statistic, half of patients remain undiagnosed. Many of these people will be in their childbearing years.  Click here to read more about a news release on this topic.

What most doctors do not know is that the timing of when you test for and treat thyroid in pregnancy is crucial in preventing miscarriage.  The type of thyroid treatment is also essential to a healthy outcome.

I will be giving a talk in our medical practice on Wed January 29th at 6:30PM on integrative medical options for  fertility, and how to test for, and treat, thyroid imabalances throughout pregnancy.

Folate in the Father’s Diet Before Conception Impacts the Health of Offspring

December 11, 2013

istock_000003158746smallMost doctors are familiar with the  importance of a healthy diet for a woman of childbearing age, however here is a new study revealing that the father’s diet before conception also plays an important role in producing a healthy baby.

Click here to read about this study.

At HealthBridge Medical Center our concierge program for fertility involves testing the father and the mother-to-be for deficiencies (nutrient and hormone) that impact the ability to conceive, and affect the health and vitality of the baby-to-be. There are very often simple steps you can take to provide your present and future children with a healthier life.

In health,

Dr. Gina
