There’s More to Weight than the Scale

There’s More to Weight than the Scale

Many people count calories or watch the scale on a daily basis finding themselves disappointed that they aren’t able to move the needle even after weeks of dedicated effort. We are here to tell you there is more to weight than the scale. Your body is essentially made up of two main components—lean mass and fat. Lean mass includes muscle, bone, water and connective tissue. When you lose weight, it is possible to reduce fat, lean mass or both. The goal of weight loss is typically to decrease body fat while maintaining your lean mass. The scale is useful but only tells part of the story, which is why we monitor body composition (body fat and lean body mass) with the Inbody test. Find out more about how your body is adjusting to your diet and exercise on the inside, and come in for a free trial of the InBody scale. Please contact San Francisco Natural Medicine to come in for a FREE InBody Scan at 415-864-9324.

Eating Organic Produce is Easy and Sustainable

Eating Organic Produce is Easy and Sustainable

There are many health reasons we should be eating organic produce but even more reasons we should be sourcing it from local farms. Research shows there is an intimate relationship between the soil in which your food is produced and your human gut microbiome. Swiss researchers have shown that organic farming does matter. Organic farming increases richness and diversity of the soil microbiome. The link between the gut microbiome and health is very apparent, and the role of the soil microbiome in maintaining gut diversity is a direct link between the farm and your body. In the past several months, several large agriculture companies have shifted efforts towards researching the crop microbiome to find new microbial strains to serve as fertilizers keeping insects, weeds and fungi in order. So how do you take advantage of these health benefits from eating organic farm produce? Here are some tips on how you can implement organic produce quickly and easily into your everyday routine.
