Ice Chips in Your Easter Basket?!

Ice Chips®  candies, while healthy, sugar-free, and safe for diabetics, are nothing like healthful candy you have tried in the past.  They burst with flavor and grab your attention.  Healthy has never been as much fun as it is with “The Good for You Candy…”

Enjoy Ice Chips®  throughout your day to keep breath fresh, and teeth healthier! Allow Ice Chips®  to dissolve slowly in mouth, coating teeth. Dentists recommend four to eight servings a day to receive full oral health benefits of Birchwood Xylitol (made in the USA). LEARN MORE

The Importance of Minerals

Minerals aren’t just in the ground…we need them in our bodies too.


TV commercials for breakfast cereal often mention vitamins and minerals. But when we think of minerals, food isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. Aren’t minerals something we find in the earth, like iron and quartz?

Well, yes, that’s true. It’s also true that minerals are in our bodies and in our foods. When we are deficient in a particular mineral, we almost crave the foods that might provide it. I’m sure you’ve even heard of kids eating dirt, or grown-ups saying they feel better after they’ve had their hands in the soil planting their gardens.

Minerals are important for our overall health. Minerals are to the soil what vitamins are for our energy production and utilization. When the soil is deficient in certain minerals, the crops aren’t as bountiful or nutritious. When we lack minerals in our bodies, our bodies lack the ability to even start many necessary functions – from building strong bones to transmitting nerve impulses. Some minerals are used to make hormones and maintain a normal heartbeat.


Macro and Trace

There are two kinds of minerals: macro and micro. Macro means “large” in Greek. Our bodies need larger amounts of macro minerals than trace minerals. The macro mineral group is made up of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium, potassium, chloride and sulfur.

A trace of something means there is only a little of it…and your body needs little doses of trace minerals including iron, manganese, copper, iodine, zine and selenium. After running or heavy exercise, it’s a good idea to drink something with macro and micro minerals. Adding a couple of drops of Cell Food is good. Another excellent choice is PRL’s pink salt, which has 80 minerals in it.

How to find out if you are mineral deficient

In our office, we utilize Analytical Research Labs, to help assess mineral levels and how those minerals are working together to promote your helth or when they are deficient, to erode your health. This company is able to assess heavy metals in the body, which also interfere with your brain’s ability to think and process information. We think it is so important to find out this information that we make it a standard part of our Books Neural Therapy packages.

It is a great stand-alone assessment too. We often include it in nutritional consultations. ARL does an excellent job of synthesizing the information and then explaining the results in ways people actually understand. It’s so much easier to actually follow through on recommendations to balance out the minerals when you understand the reason it’s so important.

At Books Family Health Center, we try to help you understand what’s going on with you and your health.

We believe in a team approach, and the doctor can only do part of the work. Clients understanding and following through makes for long term success. Books family Health Center is here to help you achieve a clear mind, clear intentions and clear follow through for a healthy, joyful life.

Your health affects everyone you see and everything you do. Please take a pro-active role in your health.

Aligning the Body with the Mind: A Unique Approach to the Common Problem of Dyslexia

Dr. Books maintains that through her system, her patients can often reverse dyslexia and other learning differences permanently.

By Jamie Netzer

Dyslexia affects anywhere between 10 to 20 percent of our population—maybe more. People under its grasp are intelligent, even brilliant people: A recent Daily Mail article noted that many executives at the very top of business are dyslexic, because they are “often astute at creating ideas and have remarkable vision.” Plus, “their work ethic to overcome their issue often sets them apart.” But as young students, these future leaders can often feel frustrated, misunderstood and even defeated.

What Might be Hurting from the Inside Out?

Analytical Research Labs Mineral and Tissue Analysis 

Toxic heavy metals like lead, aluminum and mercury may be effecting you or your child’s behavior or your ability to assimilate nutrients. You may be taking in nutrients and think you’re doing a great job but your body might not be processing the good food that you’re feeding it.  This test will show what’s going on with minerals or general nutrition levels in your body.  We will find out why your body may not be cooperating when you are trying so hard.   READ MORE

How Children Succeed

Grit, Curiosity and the Hidden Power of Character

by Paul Tough
Why do some children succeed while others fail? The story we usually tell about childhood and success is the one about intelligence: success comes to those who score highest on tests, from preschool admissions to SATs. But in How Children Succeed, Paul Tough argues that the qualities that matter more have to do with character: skills like perseverance, curiosity, optimism, and self-control.
Books Cooks A Healthy Alternative to Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
By Dr. Books

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup (healthier alternative)

Here is a relatively healthy Easter snack to substitute for those gooey marshmallow bunnies:

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups:

3/4C Cup peanut butter or sunflower butter
  • 2T Coconut butter (melt, stirring frequently)
  • 1/2C Coconut oil
  • 1C Cocoa powder
  • 1T Vanilla
  • 1T Honey (melt on low heat, stirring until smooth)
  • Line miniature muffin tins with papers.
  • Put a layer of chocolate on the bottom of each paper
  • Add a small peanut butter ball
  • Pour chocolate over the top
  • Add almond slivers if desire
  • Refrigerate to set
These need to be refrigerated or frozen and pulled out one at a time. Because they have coconut oil, they don’t do well as “counter snacks.”

As always, we welcome you to post your fun pictures of the recipes or comments on our facebook or google + page.
