Paleo Diet Review

Fad diets come and go. Once upon a time it was no fat, then no carb, you’re eating too much, you’re eating too little, you’re eating at the wrong time… Most recently we are hearing about the Paleo diet. I find this one interesting because in its general sense it agrees with advice I have been giving about nutrition for many years. There is no one magic diet for everyone. People have different genetics and different lifestyles and experiences that make certain foods better for some and worse for others. One thing I CAN say with full confidence, that people should be eating food! I know that sounds funny (what else would we eat?!?) but what I mean is that foods are things that grow out of the […]

Health Insurance?

A Little Bit About Insurance

One of the most common questions we get from new patients is “Do you accept my insurance?”  They are under the impression that if we don’t they can’t come see us.  This could not be further from the truth! Our office offers affordable fees for patients with or without insurance.   We can check on your plan and let you know what coverage you have, including what your deductible and co-payments are.  The deductible is the portion of your medical care that you must pay out of pocket before the insurance pays anything.  After that insurance will pay a portion of the bill based on what your co-payment is.  The co-payment is the amount that you have to pay out of pocket every time you visit the doctor even […]

Thyroid Disease

Thyroid Disease

If you’re overweight and tired you’ve probably suspected that it’s your thyroid. It’s just one of those things. In fact I have worked with more than a few patients that were excited when I told them they had problems with their thyroid. It was such a relief to know there was a reason for all their struggles. The thyroid is a gland in the front of your neck that’s pretty much the gas pedal for the whole body. The hormones that are made in the thyroid tell all the other parts of the body to do their jobs. So when the thyroid is working right your body burns calories doing all the things it should: growing, healing, moving, staying alert and warm. When it is working too slow […]
