Green Tea Update.

In June, we warned that much of the green tea coming from Japan is either contaminated by excessive amounts of radiation or embargoed, creating a shortage. Luckily, other countries have stepped up production. Even some of the tea brands that were exclusively Japanese (ItoEn, for example) have shifted to countries such as Thailand.

There are wonderful teas coming from Africa, Indian, and Sri Lanka. One of the best websites we have found to learn about tea that does not from China or Japan is While they only have brick and mortar locations in Los Angeles, Chado ships to anywhere in the US. We recommend studying the site and take your new-found knowledge to your local store. One tea from Chado we have tasted personally is Bio Foods Organic Green from Sri Lanka. It is amazing, especially when iced.

Serotonin Test Available

announceBonnie - due to the many clients I see who feel they need a serotonin boost (but do not want to take prescription meds), we have added serum serotonin testing to our list of optional blood tests. There is a protocol to follow three days before the blood draw to ensure complete accuracy: 

  1. Avoid foods high in indoles such as avocado, banana, plum, walnut, pineapple, and eggplant.
  2. Avoid stimulants such as tobacco, tea, and coffee. 

The test can be ordered by your doctor or through our office (70.00). Contact our office at 847-498-3422 for details.

New Product Announcement:
Sugar-Free Yummi Bears

announceHero, the maker of Yummi Bears children's chewable vitamins, has launched a sugar-free version of their Yummi Bears Multi-Vitamin/Mineral. While sugar-free usually means artificial sweeteners, in this case, it does not. The sugar replacements are the all-natural chicory root and lo han, both of which are safe non-caloric replacements.
