atural hormone replacement therapy corrects the loss of our hormones that comes through aging and menopause. The term "natural hormone" means the bioidentical hormone our bodies make, and not synthetic ones made by the pharma- ceutical industry, which can be harmful as well as helpful. With replacement, patients report an increase in their psy- chological well being. PMS symptoms can be resolved, not uncommonly, in weeks. The medical benefits are a decrease in cardiac and vascular disease, strokes, diabetes, Alzheimer's, and even cancers. Because our goal is to return hormone levels to an optimal range, we test the following for any deficiencies: Thyroid hormone, which regulates temperature, metabo-


lism, cerebral function, and energy levels. It can protect against cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's disease, memory loss, fatigue and weight gain. DHEA, which stimulates the immune system, can restore

sexual vitality, improves moods, and decreases cholesterol and body fat. It improves memory, increases energy, and has anti- cancer properties by enhancing the immune system. Melatonin, which influences the quality and quantity of sleep, is also an energizer, a mood enhancer, and an antioxidant. It has also been shown to decrease the incidence of nocturia (getting up at night to urinate). Estrogen, has been proven to reduce the effects of heart

disease, stroke, high cholesterol, Alzheimer's disease, memory loss, menopausal symptoms, osteoporosis, skin thinning, the incidence of depression, and reverse the lack of libido. Progesterone, which acts as an antidepressant, mild tranquil-

izer, and natural painkiller. Bioidentical progesterone can elimi- nate symptoms of menopause, PMS emotional instability, headaches, and mood swings. Testosterone, which drops significantly in men over age 50.

This lowered level accounts for a loss of a man's sense of well- being, decrease in sex drive, loss of general muscle mass, in- creased abdominal obesity, osteoporosis, decrease in mental acuity, and decreased strength and endurance. And, yes, tes- tosterone levels should be tested in women, as well. Testoster- one therapy can reverse the gradual sexual apathy that occurs over time, while also increasing energy, and strength.

of symptoms affecting the nose and nasal passages and may include common allergic responses to dust, pollen, or pet dander. Noting the increase in allergic diseases in recent decades,

researchers tested the potential link between intake of vitamins A, C and E on allergy symptoms. Children with AR were placed into four groups, one each receiving supplementation of vitamin C, A or E, and one control group. The group receiving supplemental vitamin C had fewer AR symptoms, suggesting that a boost of vitamin C, in the form of a little green kiwi, is just what the sinus doctor ordered.

5. Broccoli Sprouts Sprouted broccoli seeds are a rich source of the sulfur-based

nutrient sulforaphane, which may help attenuate allergic rhinitis by reducing inflammation in the nasal passages. A potent anti- inflammatory, sulforaphane also works to detoxify your body by neutralizing free radicals, actions that may help reduce symptoms of allergy flare-ups.

Airborne pollutants cause oxidative stress that can contribute to the incidence of allergy and asthma, problems often exacer- bated during hay fever season. A 2014 study demonstrated that treatment with broccoli sprout extract, containing high concen- trations of sulforaphane, suppressed the nasal inflammatory re- sponse in human subjects exposed to levels of diesel exhaust particles equivalent to driving on a Los Angeles freeway during evening rush hour traffic. Results showed that the average nasal white blood cell count increased by 66% over the period of initial screening and increased by a whopping 85% over control group levels 24 hours after initial exposure to the diesel toxins.

6. Kimchi Studies on probiotics have demonstrated their effectiveness

at reducing allergy symptoms. One symptom that may accom- pany an allergic attack is wheezing -- labored breathing when congestion is present in the lungs, creating a whistle-like sound. A 2010 study explored the use of probiotics to suppress al- lergic responses in the airways and found that when it comes to medicine, food truly is the best form around. The study compared the effectiveness of probiotics obtained from heat-killed lactobacilli strains, like those often found in commercial probiotic supplements, and lactobacillus sakei bac- teria isolated from kimchi, a spicy fermented vegetable dish. Results showed that eating kimchi was more effective at sup- pressing a hyper-allergic response in the airways than heat-killed lactic acid bacteria. Eating fermented vegetables like kimchi introduces live

strains of healthy bacteria into your gut, allowing breakdown in the digestive tract and facilitating enculturation of these heat- sensitive bacteria. Prepared kimchi is widely available in Asian markets, but it's easy to make your own. Mix roughly chopped cabbage, ginger, onions, garlic and red chilis with brine and store in airtight jars. While fresh vegetables may only be viable for a matter of days, fermenting vegetables in brine can increase shelf-life to several months.
