Question and Answer Column
Dear Dr. Serrano,
has medically controlled high cholesterol and blood pressure and a calcified aortic valve (possibly from
rheumatic fever as a child) that frequently causes chest pressure and shortness of breath. I know that
grass-fed beef has omega 3 and CLA, but it also has a concentrated amount of saturated fat. Should my
husband eat this food in moderation, and, if so, how much or how often is common for guys who are almost 60
with his condition?
He eats very little meat and dairy, choosing soy products instead
because this was such a scare for him. His digestion has improved and his numbers are good.
Thanks for your suggestions,
grass fed beef, because as I have mentioned in previous articles, it is not the fat, but
the source of the fat. If he is getting saturated fats from bad sources, then he is going to get toxins
in it. Go for the organic
grass fed red meat, but
again, the key question is how is he feeling? If he is feeling good with high energy levels, then there is
nothing to worry about. If he is feeling low energy levels, then we may need to look at other parts of his
In addition I wouldn't use soy at all because the estrogenic and insulinogenic properties.

I thought that Dr. Serrano gave a very good answer to the question by Shirley in a
recent column. The one thing that I would suggest is that perhaps mother and daughter could take some cooking
classes together - maybe Italian, Indian, or Southwestern cuisine.
Working together in a kitchen
is a great way to bond with someone, and learning about cooking also educates one about eating. Seeing what
actually goes into food gives one a greater appreciation for what we are putting in our bodies. Being able to
make it yourself gives one the ability to tailor food to one's own personal tastes and health needs.
And finally, it is worth remembering that food can taste good as well as being good for you. Moderation in
all things, etc. A healthy breakfast needn't always be "kefir with fruit, stevia, vitamin D, flax oil,
coconut shavings," but could be oatmeal cooked overnight in a slow cooker served with dried fruits and
, maple syrup, or even - yes - a sprinkle of sugar. If I had
to drink kefir for breakfast, I'd probably stop for a Pop-Tart the first chance I had, too.

Guitars for Vets
is an amazing organization that has taken an alternative approach to
helping veterans who are suffering from PTSD. They are using the healing power of music to help
soldiers deal with both physical and emotional wounds by taking their mind off their injuries and focusing on
the guitar in their hands.
The VA medical team refers veterans to the
Guitars for Vets
program. From there, they receive six free music lessons, and an
acoustic guitar of their own as a parting gift. But the healing does not stop there. There are
group sessions with other veterans that lead to a strong camaraderie that helps with the healing process.
The Guitars for Vets program can only expand with additional funding. Visit their website for
ways you can help
