Sip Oolong Tea

Research suggests that people with mild eczema who drink oolong tea three times a day may show improvement in itching and other symptoms. Compounds in the tea called polyphenols appear to be responsible.

Buying Organic

Q: How important is organic food to my overall health?

A: The Environmental Working Group released a study that identified 232 chemicals in the cord blood of babies, which showed that even before we're born, we're bombarded with toxins from our environment. Buying organic is a key way to reduce exposure to pollutants.
Organic fruits and vegetables are grown without pesticides, which are poisons designed to keep pests away from produce. At low levels, some have no proven dangerous effects on humans, but there aren't studies on the lifelong cumulative effect of exposure. When choosing to buy organic focus on most vegetables, and thin-skinned fruits like apples, cherries, and berries (the thicker the skin the less pesticides inside). Wash any non-organic produce you buy in a citrus-based fruit and vegetable wash, which helps to lift pesticides from the skin.
When you're shopping for meat, also consider organic. In non-organic poultry, cattle, and fish farms, chemical additives are used heavily -- including growth hormones, antibiotics, and grains grown with pesticides -- which are then passed on to you when you eat them. In contrast, organic animals eat whole foods and consequently, cattle and pigs that forage have higher omega-3 health fats.

    I'm not a doctor, but I had the same problem.
    I added 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to a reused 16-oz glass bottle filled with water, some honey and some lemon.
    I took a couple sips whenever I was feeling the burn, and it would go away in like 30 seconds, and stay away.
    The only important ingredient above is apple cider vinegar, so mix with it with whatever. Another mixer of mine is juice. Also, if you don't want to go to the trouble of mixing...

    Be well,

    20 Jun, 2012 Hi Dr.
    My name is Ashton and my to-be husband is Ryan. He has constant daily indigestion and heartburn, GERD is being treated currently with i believe Prilotec OCT (sorry for spelling) and I want better ways to help him, he gets pain when hungry and after eating, we stray from pills. If you have any advice we'd very much appreciate it.
    Thank you, Ashton

Cinnamon Apple Cranberry Crunch

  • ngredients

    • 1 1/2 cups cranberries (fresh or partially defrosted frozen)
    • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • Coarse salt
    • 1/2 cup honey
    • 3 small or 2 large McIntosh apples (about 1 pound), peeled if desired, cored and cut into 1 1/2 inch wedges
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 6 sheets phyllo dough


    1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. In an 8-by-8-inch baking dish, toss cranberries with cornstarch, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Drizzle with 1/4 cup honey. Arrange apples on top of cranberries in one layer, skin sides down. Drizzle with 3 tablespoons honey. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
    2. Melt together butter, remaining honey, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. Working with one sheet of phyllo at a time and keeping the others covered with plastic wrap, brush very lightly with butter mixture. Lay a second sheet over first and brush with butter mixture. Repeat with one more sheet. Tear the phyllo crosswise into 4 pieces, and loosely crumple (as you
      would a tissue) as you place on top of the apples. Repeat with remaining three sheets of phyllo and butter mixture.
    3. Bake for 20 minutes, then reduce to 350 degrees. Bake until juices bubble in center and apples are tender, 40 to 50 minutes more. If top darkens too quickly, tent with foil. Cool 30 minutes.
