No Magic Cure for Obesity
Diet drugs and crash diets produce only small results according to recent studies in JAMA & British Medical Journal.

However, of the most popular diets reviewed, those with the highest protein intake produced the most significant weight-loss.

We will discuss this, as well as delve more into diabetes and obesity in February's newsletter.

FDA Approves Cloned Food
Despite reports that the FDA has already approved releasing cloned food into the food supply, they have not yet signed it into law. If you wish to comment, click here.

Don't forget to tell the FDA that if approved, you demand that cloned food be labeled.

Dear Valued Client,

Thank you for participating in our year-end survey. We appreciate the kind words. Your comments will be addressed as we continue to improve upon our wellness services.

Two comments that appeared often in the survey:
1) I had no idea that you had a blog.
2) I don't understand what The Rejuvenating Room is.

Nutritional Concepts has been writing a blog since 2005. A blog is an online journal. We offer it as a complementary service to our clients or anyone who visits our website. We contribute to the blog almost every day with the latest research and public health issues that we feel are most pertinent to you. In the survey, some showed interest in receiving more information than what is provided in our biweekly email newsletters. The blog is the ideal resource at
The Rejuvenating Roombrighton
We have dedicated a room at our wellness center for this innovative complementary therapy. Comprised of two modalities, Far Infared Sauna Therapy and Massage, the experience takes about one hour.

The first 35-40 minutes you sit in the sauna. While not overbearing, infrared heat creates deep sweating and detoxification. You may also watch and listen to soothing nature DVD's inside the sauna to create a truly relaxing, exhilarating experience. Many clients have already taken advantage of the sauna for detoxification, digestive issues, weight-loss, chronic pain, anxiety, and stress.

After your sauna time expires, we suggest relaxing for 10-15 minutes while your skin is still exfoliating. What better place to do this than in our five technique "human touch" massage chair. Melt in the chair while hearing soothing tones from a sound therapy machine.

Far Infrared Therapy is being recommended much more frequently by health professionals as it is proving to be a wonderful complementary wellness solution.

You options are following:
1 visit only - $45
3 visit package - $120
10 visit package - $300

Maca Root...Take Your Place at the Table.
We are excited to introduce Maca Root, a vegetable with multifacted benefits for men and women.

Maca is a South American vegetable found high in the Andes Mountains. It is a member of the brassica family (broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts). While one cannot find the actual vegetable in the U.S., the root is available in supplement form. Maca has well-researched benefits.

For Men: libido, fertility, testosterone balance, arthritis/joint pain
For Women: fertility, estrogen balance, arthritis/joint pain

Clients have asked, "Can't I get my brassica by eating vegetables?" The answer, of course, is yes. We always recommend this as the first option. However, most do not eat enough to make a therapeutic difference.

Maca Root is excellent insurance for the detoxification of bad/excess estrogen. Brassica is the most heavily researched natural substance for cancer prevention and methylation of estrogen. Excess estrogen, which dominates our environment, has been blamed for infertility, low libido, and cancer in men (prostate, testicular) and women (breast, ovarian, etc.).

Maca is a well-tolerated, low allergy option for arthitis/joint-pain sufferers who have trouble with COX inhibitors or glucosamine and chondroitin.

Maca, especially when shopping on the Internet, is often touted as a cure all by unscrupulous retailers. We suggest contacting a health professional before taking this supplement. As always, we are happy to look at the ingredients of any product you find. We recommend and carry Nature's Way.

Note: for arthritis, take only a standardized glucosinolate maca formula. For all other purposes, take the entire root.
Have a happy, healthy day.
