Prenatal Nutrition PDF Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Paul G. Jensen   
When a baby is brought to my office with health problems, the first thing I look at is the health of his/her mother. If the mother is nutritionally depleted, the developing fetus cannot be expected to have optimal health. Many mothers have the impression that all they need to do is take vitamins once they find out that they are pregnant. Vitamins will not compensate for a poor diet. In addition, the most critical time to consume extra nutrients is well before getting pregnant. For example; Neural tube defects occur between the twenty-first and twenty-seventh day after conception. Many mothers do not even know they are pregnant by day twenty-one, at which point it would be too late to compensate for the lack of nutrition.

Is a Flu Shot the Best Way to Fight the Flu? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Paul G. Jensen   
Every year it’s the same thing, a constant stream of news segments about this winter’s flu epidemic, the unavailability of a vaccination, the number of deaths, etc. “If only people would get their flu shots,” drone the TV anchors.  But is a flu shot the best way to fight the flu?  Do people study the research related to flu vaccine efficacy? The Dutch did a study regarding elderly individuals (considered high-risk with relation to the flu) in one retirement home, and found that 50 percent of the vaccinated individuals contracted the flu, and only 48 percent of the non-vaccinated individuals contracted the flu (ten percent of those with the flu – with or without the vaccination, died).  This study shows that fewer of the non-vaccinated group actually contracted the flu.  More interesting was that in a different retirement home in which no one received vaccinations, only 37 percent contracted the flu with three percent of those being fatal.

Infertility PDF Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Paul G. Jensen   
Infertility is a growing problem in America. Presently, one in every six couples struggle with infertility issues. Forty percent of infertility problems are male related, and 60 percent are female related. In the past 50 years, the average sperm count of the American male has dropped from 100 million/ml of semen to 20 million/ml. Men with a reduced sperm density (below 40 million/ml) have a reduced chance of conceiving a pregnancy. Scientists conclude that the number one reason for this dramatic drop in sperm levels is due to the amount of toxic chemicals found in food. These chemicals also greatly effect the female cycle, causing irregular periods and hormonal imbalance, making it difficult for a woman to conceive a child.
