Leave a comment

Protein from nuts and seeds is beneficial for the heart, but consuming large amounts of meat protein can cause a sharp increase in the risk of cardiovascular diseases, a study has found.
Researchers from Loma Linda University in the US and Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique in France studied data from more than 81,000 participants. The study, published in the International Journal of Epidemiology, found that people who consumed large amounts of meat protein experienced a 60 per cent increase in cardiovascular disease, while people who consumed large amounts of protein from nuts and seeds experienced a 40-per cent reduction in cardiovascular disease.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
