For chronic disease, I am reiterating the importance
of a "modern" Mediterranean diet. The
research for its benefits are overwhelming. Read the
details of our new Action Plan below.
I hope my comment on bioidentical hormones sheds
some light on this controversial issue.

of the Mediterranean Action Plan
Over the last decade, Mediterranean cuisine has
received attention for its health benefits. There
are now a multitude of well-structured research
studies to support this.
Most of you are familiar with the benefits of
Mediterranean cuisine for the heart, blood sugar
balance, and pain relief. The latest study released
last week linked the Mediterranean diet with
reducing the speed at which cognitive/memory
abilities decline. There is a common denominator at

Inflammation is at the root of many of the common
chronic diseases that afflict us today. The
Mediterranean diet solidifies its claim as the best
long-term dietary lifestyle choice because its
balance of lean protein and fish, copious
fruits/vegetables, and healthy fats furthers the

prudent to comment after hearing about Oprah
Winfrey's show on bioidentical hormones.
Logic dictates that human identical, bio-identical
products are the only acceptable products when we
are restoring hormones or nutrients. Why use a
product that acts like the real thing when you can
get the real thing? Oprah's show, as well as the
latest research study linking synthetic hormones to
a higher risk of breast cancer, brings to the
forefront the discussion of what is safe for women
(and men, although I rarely consult them on hormone
therapy issues). Read
