Dear Patients and Friends,
Well I know it’s hard to believe, but it’s already July. Things are moving along pretty fast. I don’t know about you, but the Fourth of July is a special day to celebrate. I’ve spent a few hours putting this month’s newsletter together for you, so let me know how I can improve the newsletter, my services, and help you and your family. With that being said, let’s get into this months newsletter.
“All your dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”
“A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself.”
“Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.”

Why I Never Use Off The Shelf Salad Dressings
I stop in the salad dressing aisle, not for salad dressing, but for an Italian seasoning packet that we mix with extra virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar. Makes for a perfect, tasty, all natural salad dressing with more wholesome ingredients, much unlike the typical salad dressings that line grocery store shelves. You see, we NEVER buy bottled dressings. They’re horrible for you, and for the most part the “all natural” versions are as well. Here are just some of the reasons why:
1. Pick up any salad dressing bottle and you’ll likely see canola oil, soybean oil, and/or vegetable oil as the main ingredients. These oils are extremely processed, rich in inflammation-promoting Omega-6 fatty acids, and often times contain trans fats that aren’t disclosed on the label due to how processed they are.
“All-natural” salad dressing found in the refrigerated section aren’t much different. You’ll still see these oils as the base of nearly all of those brands as well. Why? They’re cheap!
Also, don’t be fooled by labels that claim “Made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil”. Sure, they’ll point that out on the front of the label because it sounds good and leads you to believe that it’s an extra virgin olive oil based dressing. Instead, that only means that there is at least a drop of extra virgin olive oil in the bottle, and often times that’s all it has. Flip the label over and you’ll see the same vegetable oils listed first and extra virgin olive oil way down on the list of ingredients. Unethical? Yes. Healthy? No. Even if it has only extra virgin olive oil, it probably isn’t real oil but counterfeit, unless they certify the olive oil as real on the label(covered this in a past newsletter).
2. More often than not, in addition to cheap, potentially harmful oils, store bought salad dressing is also loaded with sugar to boot. Even worse, it often comes in the form of high fructose corn syrup (the absolute worst form of sugar available). Just check the label.
3. To round off the trifecta of horrid ingredients contained in traditional salad dressings, we have the long list of artificial additives and preservatives that often plague these products. If you’re looking to avoid artificial chemicals in your food, simply put, you won’t have much luck with store bought salad dressing.
So the next time you are buying Weight Watchers no fat dressing or some wholesome natural brand (even Trader Joes), think, read and ask questions. Besides, even super natural dressings are sitting on the shelf for a while, in fluorescent lights. That’s why I recommend you do what we do. Grab a seasoning packet from the store, or make your own with your own seasonings (read the labels first), mix with REAL CERTIFIED (label says its certified) extra virgin olive and vinegar, and enjoy your dressing the healthy and still very convenient way.

“4 COOL FACTS”
About the 4th of July
1. A Truly Young Nation
The average age of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence was 45. The youngest was Thomas Lynch, Jr (27) of South Carolina. The oldest delegate was Benjamin Franklin (70) of Pennsylvania. The lead author of The Declaration, Thomas Jefferson, was 33.
2. Men of Harvard
1 out of 8 signers of the signers were educated at Harvard (7 total). Four each at William & Mary, Yale, and Princeton. George Wythe was a professor at William & Mary and one of his students was Thomas Jefferson.
3. An Act of Treason
After signing the Declaration, John Hancock remarked that Congress must now “all hang together”. Benjamin Franklin replied, “Yes, we must indeed all hang together, or most assuredly we shall all hang separately.”
4. Happy July 2nd
The initial date the resolution of independence was approved in a closed session of Congress was July 2, 1776. The next day, John Adams remarked in a letter to his wife Abigail: “The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty.”
