New Approaches Help Combat Insomnia

While you might need to use medication in the short term, advances are made every day in the treatment of this potentially harmful condition.

Are Plant-Based Burgers Healthier?

Due in part to the pandemic, sales of plant-based foods have soared recently. One survey reported 77 percent of U.S. shoppers bought at least one type of plant-based food in the last six months. Of those, 30 percent said this was a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Some respondents said they wanted to make a conscious effort to eat healthier to improve their immune systems. Others said it was because they had more time at home to experiment with new food choices.

Our primary care doctors at MD 2.0 in Jupiter certainly applaud this trend. At the same time, we noticed one of the main drivers of plant-based food sales is the meatless burger. You can now find it on grocery store shelves and many restaurants.

So are plant-based burgers healthier than their meat-based inspiration? The answer seems to be, not necessarily.

avocado for health

For Your Overall Health, Consider the Mighty Avocado

Study after study has shown that the best way to stay healthy is to eat a plant-based diet. That doesn’t necessarily mean strictly vegetarian. Consider a meal plan focused on natural foods, especially plants, and minimal meat, processed foods, and dairy products.

One fruit that our concierge primary care doctors would like to suggest you incorporate into your diet is the avocado. (And yes it is technically a fruit, even though people often think of it as a vegetable.) That’s because there’s a wealth of health-giving nutrients packed into one avocado. From heart health to improved digestion to better eyesight, avocados have long had a reputation as a powerhouse superfood.

Is Handshaking Gone for Good?

One thing our primary care doctors in Jupiter were not sad to lose during the pandemic was the ancient tradition of handshaking. It’s not because we’re anti-social. Quite the opposite, in fact. We love meeting new people, as well as seeing people we haven’t seen in awhile.

When people avoided each other, wore masks, and bumped elbows instead of shaking hands when they did meet, the incidence of other communicable diseases plunged. Science says the reduction in handshaking played a big role in that.

Anti Inflammatory Diet

What Is An Anti-Inflammatory Diet?

Our primary care concierge doctors in Jupiter have told you many times about the dangers inflammation poses to your health. Often, the best way to reverse these dangers is by participating in an anti-inflammatory diet.

Inflammation is necessary to keeping the body healthy. But when your body is repeatedly assaulted by various harmful stimuli such as pathogens, injuries, or poor lifestyle habits, the inflammation never ends and can eventually cause long-term damage.

Tea Leads to Good Overall Health

To our concierge family practice doctors in Jupiter, Florida, tea is the second-best beverage you can drink for good health. It comes as a close second, of course, to drinking water.

The practice of brewing leaves appears to go back at least 5,000 years, but its actual origins are hazy. The most persistent legend concerns a Chinese emperor who drank a bowl of hot water that was boiled for sanitary purposes. He was in his garden when a few leaves fell into his bowl, surprising him with the resulting pleasant flavor.

But a great deal of recent research has found there’s far more to be found in a cup of tea than a soothing drink.

Poison Prevention Saves Lives

We tend to think of our homes as our safe place. But according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC), accidental poisoning is the leading cause of injury-type deaths in the U.S., and 92 percent of those occur in the home.

From prescription medications to cleaning supplies, hidden dangers lurk in every corner of our homes.

Which is why our concierge doctors at MD 2.0 in Jupiter, Florida, want to take advantage of National Poison Prevention Week, March 21-27, to highlight ways you can keep yourself and your family safe.
