Holiday Meal Supplements

Holiday Meal Supplements

by Robin Foroutan and Stephanie Mandel November 17, 2017

Happy Holidays! If you’re like most people, the likelihood of at least one indulgent meal is, well… pretty likely. We get it — temperatures are down, tempting foods abound, and family and friends are around, making it both a celebratory and stressful time. It happens to the best of us, and we want you to bounce back as best you can after an overindulgent meal and the subsequent case of the “blahs” that tend to follow.

You are what you eat - why biochemical individuality should impact food choices

You are what you eat - why biochemical individuality should impact food choices

by Stephanie Mandel October 10, 2017

The food you put in your body is more than the flavor you taste or the satisfaction you feel. Every single item of food that you eat has an impact on your health. There are so many different diet recommendations out there because there isn’t one diet that works for everyone.

Healthy eating is an essential step towards living a long and active life. Dr. Jeffrey Morrison, a physician, and nutritionist at the Morrison Center in New York City spoke to CBS News about the importance of a balanced diet as you age.

The top questions to ask yourself before taking vitamins

The top questions to ask yourself before taking vitamins

by Stephanie Mandel and Robin Foroutan June 19, 2017

We know that vitamins and minerals are important, and nutrient deficiencies are rare, so are vitamin and mineral supplements necessary? If you’ve followed recent highly publicised research, there’s been a resounding NO of late. But does that conclusion follow the science?

In study after study, researchers and medical professionals acknowledge the biological need for vitamins and minerals, and the lack thereof in the diets of most Americans. And yet, they conclude that since deficiencies are rare nowadays, there is no real need for a vitamin or mineral supplement. Taking a closer look reveals a major flaw in this commonly held rationale.

Stressed Out: Adrenal Fatigue and How to Heal

Stressed Out: Adrenal Fatigue and How to Heal

by Jeffrey Morrison November 01, 2016

Everyone gets stressed out from time to time, but did you know your body can get “stuck” in a stressed-out state? It comes down to an imbalance in the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.

The sympathetic nervous system is essentially the gas pedal of the body. It tells our body that there’s a (perceived) threat and we need to act accordingly. Our pulse quickens, our pupils dilate, we take in more oxygen, our adrenal glands start pumping out the “stress hormones” cortisol and adrenaline, as we prepare for a “fight or flight” response.

By contrast, our parasympathetic nervous system is akin to tapping on the breaks. It’s our “rest and digest” mode, and it’s where we want to be most of the time. Long periods of stress, both physical or emotional, can result in a dominant sympathetic nervous system, whereby the “gas pedal” overrides the “breaks,” and adrenal glands become overworked. This may manifest as exhaustion, sleep problems, anxiety, or the feeling of being “tired and wired.”

The good news is that certain herbs, along with stress management techniques, adequate rest and a healthy diet, can help rebalance and support a healthy stress response.

How to get healthier in 30 Days

by Stephanie Mandel April 03, 2016

At the Morrison Center, we call this the Daily Benefit Detox Program. It’s a simple formula for success where we shift our focus on choosing nutritious whole foods that naturally “crowd out” foods that create inflammation, the underlying cause of all things that make us feel unwell. We then kick things up a notch by supporting liver detoxification with our Daily Benefit 30-Day Detox Set. Whether it’s a feeling of overall sluggishness, mental fogginess, gastrointestinal distress, fatigue or symptoms like joint pain, weight gain or dry skin, a diet that replenishes our cells with vital nutrients can have us feeling recharged in less than 30 days.
