Well, it's official. The holiday season is in full swing.
Here at the clinic we've decked the halls with everything from mistletoe to menorahs. My patients and staff are glowing. And everyone is bustling with excitement.

Is Milk Robbing Your Bone Strength?
There's no doubt milk contains plenty of calcium. However, like the majority of animal products, it's also an acid-forming food. When it's consumed by humans, it causes the pH in our bodies to become acidified.
Well, now, calcium is great at neutralizing acid. So, when this acidic state occurs after drinking animal protein, guess what happens? Calcium is drawn from our bones to neutralize it.
