How To Deal With Poor Digestion by Dr. Asa Andrew

Welton From Texas Writes: 

I have recently been diagnosed with acid reflux by my doctor and have been taking the medications as suggested. I still seem to be having some issues from time to time. Why is this happening and what can I do to help my situation from getting worse?

Dear Welton,

Digestive issues impact many on a regular basis. There are many factors on why this happens. We are only as healthy as the foods we eat, digest, absorb, assimilate, and eliminate. That being said, we must make sure that our digestive system is in the highest working order to increase our ability to utilize the foods that we eat each day. 

The Foods That Contain The Ultimate Healing Mineral by Dr. Asa Andrew

Cynthia from Arizona Writes:

I am dealing with a lot of muscle cramps and general female issues associated with menopause. My doctor can’t find anything wrong except a low magnesium reading on my lab work. Could this be part of it?

Dear Cynthia,

Magnesium plays a huge role in our everyday health. I really think it underestimated in how important it is in all that we evaluate in healthcare. It is important to nearly every cell and function within our body.  It can cut your risk for a heart attack, lowers inflammation, builds the immune system, and can even reduce diabetes by up to 33%. I am a big fan of getting magnesium into our diet each day using whole foods as much as possible. Here are some of my top picks for foods that contain magnesium and can support the body to thrive.
