Dear Valued Subscriber,
Did you know that according
to a study from the Journal of
the Academy of Nutrition and
Dietetics, meeting the
requirements of the 5 A Day For
Better Health Fruit and Vegetable
Program contributed to increased
antioxidant vitamin and
micronutrient levels and reduced
oxidative stress in reproductive
salads were found to be the most
common way to reach the 5 A Day
standard. What's interesting is 5 A
Day is actually a bit outdated. 7 A
Day fruit and vegetable servings is
now the gold standard!

clinicians can do is
give their patients a
stronger sense of
control in medical and
making. Even simple
techniques such as
weekly eNewsletters can
offer motivation and
connection so that
patients will feel more
empowered to deal with
their ongoing wellness
In conclusion, Dr. Raker
implores his colleagues
to understand how
complex humans heal and
is much more complicated
than just treating
disease. As a culture,
shifting from disease
management to health
creation is the most
challenging part. As a
