Dr Beech's Health Tips
The weather in Maryland this weekend is beautiful. Cool crisp nights with today’s high in the low 70’s. So, last night I turned on our whole house attic fan and pulled in all that crisp cool air. Unfortunately, I also pulled in tons of pollen from all the flowers in my wife’s garden (she loves her flowers!).
This morning I woke up to a scratchy throat, completely clogged sinuses, watery eyes and non-stop sneezing. Did I immediately reach for my bottle of Antihistamines – NO! I have an easier, healthier, and quicker solution with no toxic side effects.
So, most of us are at home social distancing and being with our Families. Spring is a beautiful time to be home and enjoy the beauty of Nature in full bloom. But to some folks this is the dreaded allergy season. A time of miserable sneezing, coughing and wheezing from the Pollen released by those gorgeous blossoms.
What can you do? Antihistamines can help the symptoms in the short term, but with uncomfortable side effects. Also, they work by blocking your body’s natural allergic response. Symptoms are our body’s way of telling us something’s wrong and to fix what’s broken. Merely blocking the symptomatic response without addressing the underlying problem is like cutting the wires to the fire alarm.
For Spring allergies, that means to naturally improve the respiratory system’s ability to cope up with the onslaught of exogenous proteins while calming down the already over reactive immune response.

If you read about Turmeric on the internet, you’ll find a lot of information about its health benefits. But there’s more to the story that the nutritional companies don’t tell you.
10 Easy Ways to Prevent Electronic Fatigue
The benefits of modern technology are self-evident. We lead lives today that even Royalty of past ages would envy. However, with all its perks, much of our technology creates a subtle invisible type of toxin that can affect our energy, focus and even weaken our digestion and immunity.
Have you ever worked long hours on any electronic device and felt mentally exhausted yet hyped up at the same time? Have you had trouble falling asleep after a few hours of TV or have a feeling tingling or crawling sensation in the hands, feet or anywhere in the body without any known cause? These and many other symptoms are potential signs of over exposure to EMF (electromagnetic fields).
This is a big topic and one that I may elaborate more details about in a future online Webinar. However, in this article I want to touch on the main points of EMF overexposure and give you some techniques for protecting yourself and your family.
Recently I saw Dr. Oz on a TV show proposing that we skip breakfast and not have our first meal of the day until 11 AM. He explained that this intermittent fasting of around 16 to 18 hours will boost metabolism and burn off excess fat.
He’s right. Not eating will increase the metabolic fire and will cause the body to burn fat. However, you must first ask yourself one simple question:
It happens every year, the cold and flu season hits. Have you ever wondered why colds and flu are more likely to occur in the winter than any other time of the year?
There are a lot of reasons but first I want to frame the discussion with a simple fact:
No matter what kind of infection, there are always 2 components that must be present.
