Happy Thanksgiving

There is much this year for us to be grateful. Keeping my thanks to each and all to a few words is a challenge. I am deeply thankful for the opportunity I have had, over several decades, to help advance the practice of functional medicine by helping you help patients. The evidence is growing; people can stop fighting and start healing.

Today, as every day, I am filled with gratitude for your continued support. My staff and I are eager to continue our service to you through advanced supplements, functional tests, comprehensive treatment plans, and now even a self-paced certification program. Joining together our strengths, we will continue the transition from sick care to healthful caring for all.

Our many thanks and gratitude for the opportunities and challenges of this season.

In Health,

Russ Jaffe

EAB 2016 Holiday Schedule

As the holiday season is approaching, we want to make you aware of our lab and Client Services department schedules to ensure all samples can be received in time to be processed. We are providing you with the dates that our lab will be closed as well as the dates that you should NOT do blood draws for LRA by ELISA/ACT tests. Following this schedule is important because blood drawn on the days indicated (“NO” days) will be more than 3 days old when received, and therefore cannot be read.

Flavored Quinoa Recipe

Quinoa is an excellent gluten-free source of protein, calcium, iron, B-vitamins and fiber. Rinse well before cooking because it has a coating of saponin resin that gives it a bitter taste.

Ingredients:

1-part quinoa
1 ½ parts water
¼ teaspoon salt for 1 cup of grain, optional syrup, chopped fresh or dried fruit and nuts.

Cook quinoa in water for about 10-12 minutes until water is absorbed. Fluff with a fork and store in the refrigerator up to 5 days.

For a savory taste, add minced herbs such as mint, chives, coriander or parsley, spices, sprouts, and chopped vegetables. For a sweet flavor, you might add maple.
