Are you confused by the array of supplements on the market today? How about the seemingly endless options in skin and hair care products? Ever feel completely stymied to hear something's "bad" for you one day, only to read that it's not so bad a few months later? If you're like me, you've answered yes to these questions.
Of course, today you can walk into any big box retailer and have your pick of products. But do you really know anything about what you're buying? What if you have questions? Good luck trying to find an educated salesperson to help. (Also, is the person who was just stocking the sporting goods on one side of the store really someone you can trust with your health questions?)
That's where Theresa Groskapp can help. As a certified nutritionist, she has the education and expertise to help consumers make smart choices in this area. Her belief that the foundation of health and wellness lies in proper nutrition drives her to help people be their best. She does this through her business, Natural Healthy Concepts, and its online store, NaturalHealthyConcepts.com. Unlike other Web sites, with NHC, customers are able to talk to a live human being before making a purchase, which helps them make the right decision for their particular needs.
Another subject that can be just as confusing is hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for menopausal women. There's been a lot in the news, and Oprah was all over it in her heyday. But it's hard to know what to believe. Erika Schwartz, M.D., sheds some light on the subject in her article on natural hormone treatments. She says, "... hormone-replacement therapy has become a textbook example of how special interests, a confused medical establishment, and opportunists can combine to complicate the issue and deny patients access to safe and effective treatments."
Of course, those are just two of the many great articles we have for September. Let us know what you think and have a great month!
