    Deborah J. Post, ARNP - toxic environmental chemicals and reproductive health

    in Health

    Learn why it's important to protect yourself from environmental toxins - especially pregnant women or those trying to conceive. 


    Reducing exposure to toxic environmental agents is a critical area of intervention for obstetricians, gynecologists, and other reproductive health care professionals. Exposure to toxic environmental chemicals and other stressors during preconception, as well as during pregnancy, can have a profound and lasting effect on reproductive health throughout life.


    Prenatal exposure to certain chemicals is known to increase the risk of cancer in childhood. Adult male exposure to pesticides is linked to altered semen quality, sterility, and prostate cancer. And, postnatal exposure to some pesticides can interfere with all developmental stages of reproductive function in adult females, including puberty, menstruation and ovulation, fertility and fecundity, and menopause.


    Learn from Deborah Post, a Board Certified Nurse Practitioner with more than 30 yeas of experience in a vareity of health settings, about the impact of environmental toxins. Deborah uses an integrative medical approach and has worked with chronic fatigue syndrome, male and female hormonal imbalances, adrenal stress disorders, Autism, ADD, ADHD, depression, anxiety, insomnia, and environmental toxicity.

    Your Metabolism Synthetic Chemicals and Better Health

    in Health

    SHOW DESCRIPTION:


    It is a fact that we are all biochemically unique. Yes, just as each and everyone of us has a unique finger print, so do we have unique cell prints—which generally can tell us which types of foods we individually thrive on as well as which foods are a detriment to our systems. This is called Metabolic Typing and today’s guest has spent over 24 years perfecting this approach to better health. Not only will we be discussing the benefits of metabolic typing, we will also be discussing the importance of cellular detoxification. Say what? LOL… With the ever increasing levels of commercial pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, nitrates combined with steroids, antibiotics, and growth hormones in beef, poultry and other commercial farm animals it is important to know just what our bodies are up against on a daily basis and what you can do starting today to protect yourself from these harmful substances. In fact, research published in the Journal of Alternative and Complimentary Medicine showed that the drastic rise in the use of synthetic chemicals over the years closely matches the rise in the number of overweight and obese adults throughout North America


    Guest Bio Information:


    After receiving his B.S. degree in Psychology in 1982, Dr. Curtis Kuhn went on to receive his M.S. degree in Metabolic Science in 1986, followed by his Ph.D. in Metabolic Science and Psychology in 2008.

    Are Toxic Chemicals In Our Environment and Our Home Making Us Sick?

    in Environment

    Why are so many people dying of cancer and other diseases? Are there toxic chemicals to blame? In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer, talks to Alice Shabecoff to discuss her book, Poisoned for Profit: The Toxic Assault on our Children. If you would like to learn what you can do to protect yourself and your children from these toxic assaults, stay tuned!

Alice is the author of Poisoned for Profit: The Toxic Assault on our Children, which she co-authored with her husband, Philip. The Shabecoffs reveal that the children of baby boomers—the first to be raised in a truly "toxified" world—have higher rates of birth defects, asthma, cancer, autism and a frightening range of other neurological illnesses from ADHD to mental retardation and other serious chronic illnesses, than previous generations.

    Destination Health - #23 - We're staying on the No Grain Train and learning more

    in Health

    I will admit that my comfort food of choice would be a warm loaf of crusty bread (yes the whole loaf) and some cold butter to slather (good word!), watch it melt into all the tiny, delectable holes and enjoy. I did use to do what they say is healthy and use 100% whole grain bread....or swap out my white rice for brown rice....and now what?! We are finding more and more research that the grains - especially what has been done to them through  mass-production may be the root of so many of our health issues. Hop on board the No Gran Train and join us as we delve into this issue a little more.
