Family Dentistry, Orthodontics & Certified invisaiign Provider Nearly 40 percent of Americans are taking over-the-counter supplements and vitamins, but according to the National (530) 283-281.1 Institutes of Health, some herbal remedies have negative, even dangerous, effects on their own or when taken with other med- ications. For instance, research has shown that the herb St. John's Tort, used by some people to treat depression, may cause certain drugs to become less effective. A Consumer Reports analysis of 19 Echinacea pill supplements found three products had less than the labeled amount; four products contained amounts of lead that exceeded California Prop. 65 standards, and over all, the amount of Echinacea var- ied substantially from' product to product, even within the same bottle. 2034 East Main Street Quincy, CA 95971 (across from Polka Dot, East Quincy) OPEN MON - FRI 8:30am - 4:30pm Evening appointments available 0% financing available - O.A.C. The concerns about supplement safety coupled with the expan - sive amount of vitamin and supplement products available make deciding which ones are right for you and your needs a daunt- ing task. Many people are so overwhelmed by what they are with at a pharmacy, grocery or specialty store that they just decide not to bother. This isn't always the best deci- sion, considering nutritional supplements can be used to fill in gaps created by the standard American diet. There are a number of steps you can and should take to ensure you purchase the safest and most effective supplements possi- ble. Make sure the supplements that you purchase are made by a manufacturer that is certified for Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) by a third party organization, such as the NNFA (National Nutritional Foods Association) or the NSF (National Sanitary Foundation). The best way to determine if the brand you are considering is GMP certified is to visit one of the certifying bodies' Web sites, as they will list which compa- nies .participate in their programs. Always be certain not to take a higher dose of a supplement than is listed on the label, unless your health care practitioner advis- es you to do so. And if you suffer any adverse side effects from any supplement, immediately stop taking it and notify your health care practitioner. There are some general safety guidelines to keep in mind with taking supplements. • Always consult a physician before making any changes in your da'ily health and nutrition regimen, and that includes taking any dietary supplements. • Always be very careful to take supplements as indicated on the packaging. • Take vitamin supplements with food, as this aids in digestion. • Finally, be sure to take supplements consistently to achieve the maximum health benefits.

There are several alternative ways to help treat itchy nose, sneezing and sinus congestion this time of year without the use of drugs. • Maintain a sensible/well-balanced diet -- a balanced diet refers to the intake of appropriate types and adequate amounts of foods and drinks to supply nutrition and energy for the mainte- nance of overall body health. According to the U.S. Dietary Guidelines (RDA), there are three guidelines to follow in order to maintain a healthy diet: Eat three meals a day, do not skip breakfast and follow a sensible eating plan. • Exercise regularly - for the greatest overall health benefits, 20 to 30 minutes of aerobic activity three or more times a week is recommended. Additionally, some type of muscle strengthening activity and stretching at least twice a week is also important to overall body health. Wash your nose - call it spring cleaning for your nose. A scien- tifically proven remedy that is gaining popularity for sinus con- gestion and allergies is also one of the oldest: A warm saltwater rinse of the nasal passages called nasal wash. The drug-free treatment can be used as often as needed and is recommended after exposure to known allergens. For example, one should wash their nose after mowing the lawn if allergic to grass. Reduce exposure to dust mite allergens - keep upholstered fur- niture and carpet to a minimum in your home. Encase your mat- tress, box springs and pillows in washable zippered encasings. Use an air purifier to help control odors, dust, pollen, mold and other bacteria. If you are exposed to these allergens, try wash- ing your nose immediately. Reduce exposure to pollens - stay indoors during peak pollen allergy seasons. Keep windows and doors closed; all that fresh air can aggravate your symptoms. Caulk and seal windows and replace filters on air conditioning systems to stop pollen and dust filtration. Alternative treatments will not have the side effects that come with some drugs. Alternative remedies can also be beneficial for allbrgy sufferers who don't like the idea of taking medicine. .lX00/l,-Sl ERRA Now located at Blairsden Junction Corner of Hwy 89 & 70, Blairsden Call For Appointment (530) 832-0442 Therapeutic Massage Craniosacral Therapy Yoga Instruction Troy C.
