Heart Healthy Success with Meal Planning & Preparation- Easy Roasted Vegetable Batch Cooking Recipe

By Mary C. Johnson, Dietetic Intern Roasted vegetables-2

In our fast-paced lives, we demand meals on-the-go and often reach for the quickest options available. This most often involves purchasing pre-packaged or fast-food meals which are typically higher in sodium and saturated fat which are detrimental to our heart health. These quick options are also lower in fiber and phytochemicals (cancer fighting compounds found in the color of the food) that are found in plant-based foods which are important for our overall health. Optimizing your diet to include plant-based foods is a surefire way to increase the nutrient density of your diet and maximize your disease fighting potential. Spending time planning and preparing your meals each week is one of the best ways to ensure diet success for heart health. Here are a few easy tips to get you started in quick meal planning and preparation that you can start to incorporate into your routine.

LYME DISEASE - AN URGENT APPEAL FOR REFORM: We Need Your Help!

By Ronald Stram, M.D. World-in-black-and-white-hands-1

The Lyme Disease Treatment Guidelines, authored by the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), are currently undergoing review. While there are multiple perspectives regarding the best treatment protocols for Lyme disease, and two professional medical societies that specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease, the CDC and the nation's insurance companies have historically selected the guidelines authored by the IDSA to be the sole voice for treatment advice for this highly complex and insufficiently understood illness. This has laid the groundwork for a lack of adequate treatment for hundreds of thousands of Lyme disease patients who have endured, and will continue to endure serious, persistent illness.

Evolving Objectives in the Treatment of Lyme Disease

By Dr. Ronald Stram, M.D.

As often happens in medicine, scientific evidence evolves; the continual flux of new patients with symptoms suggestive of Lyme disease is growing and new research has proven that Lyme disease is more complex and prevalent than we thought. The time has come to move beyond the divisiveness of the past, listen to the suffering of our patients and their families and move forward with all sides of the discussion into an evidenced-based paradigm for research, education, and patient care. The question is no longer whether Lyme is a complicated disease, or whether the current testing is adequate or whether the Lyme bacteria can survive a single antibiotic challenge in order to become a persistent infection. High quality studies show not only that it happens, but they also show how it happens, and why we should not be surprised that it happens. Our objective now is to determine which patients suffer from acute and or persistent LD, and to keep pressing for evidence-based wisdom to guide physicians and allied health care providers called upon to treat them.

Action Requested Not an Apology – Lyme Forum

By Dr. Ronald Stram, M.D.

What’s going on here?

On Monday, I attended a forum hosted by Honorary Chairman Congressman Chris Gibson and the LymeNext Organizing Committee at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs. I was struck by the association one of the speakers made between the current treatment denial by insurance companies for  LYME Disease and  the government sponsored Tuskegee research performed from 1932 to the 1970′s which looked at the long term effects of syphilis in the black population.
