Forty days and 40 nights—that’s what we set aside to create a feeling of optimum health and beauty in my Wellness Boot Camp. It’s a chance to reinvent your lifestyle to create a disease-resistant body that looks and feels better than ever. My campers often ask me why I don’t recommend vitamins as part of such a comprehensive program. Instead, we focus on “super foods” to allow the body to thrive. Just as there are many reasons why I prefer to nourish the body with food rather than vitamins, there are also many cases where taking vitamins is appropriate.

Learning to test your blood sugar, give yourself an insulin shot, or count carbohydrates isn?t average curriculum for a first grader. But it?s been standard protocol for 17-year-old La Cañada High School senior Remy De Brauwere since she and her family learned the then-6-year-old had type 1 diabetes. Remy credits her supportive family, helpful physician and the knowledgeable staff at Childrens Hospital of Los Angeles with keeping her on track for a healthy life, despite the autoimmune disease that destroyed insulin producing beta cells in her pancreas.

Ah, the "olden days," a time when life was simpler, even food was simpler. We ate less processed, sweetened food, and sugar was a rare treat. Just before the turn of this century, the average American consumed about five pounds of sugar per year. Cut to today, you'll find sugar in cereal, ketchup, bread, crackers, salad dressings, sauces and fast foods — and that five pounds per year has multiplied to 135 pounds consumed each year! Back in those olden days, there were no Krispy Kreme doughnuts (10 grams of sugar)

After six weeks of construction and wiring, it all came down to three days of intense competition for students in the robotics teams from Crescenta Valley and Clark Magnet high schools. The atmosphere at the Great Western Forum was so tense you could cut it with wire cutters. The pressure so intense, competitors couldn't remember simple things like the gravitational pull of the moon. This was not the time to forget your basic calculus skills. This was competition. This is what all the hard work came down to - the regional robotics competition sponsored by For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, or FIRST.

Letters to the Editor On loss of Dr. Susan Dietrich, DVM I was heartbroken to hear that Dr. Dietrich had passed [Obituaries, March 20]. She, along with Dr. Woody Walker, have cared for my two 13-year-old dogs all their lives. Dr. Dietrich was very involved in both my dogs’ care and went above and beyond the call of duty many times. When my sheltie had a very severe case of pancreatitis and was hospitalized for a week she would call me every night, sometimes very late, to let me know how he was doing and tell me how to care for him in the future.

What we like to think of as “the most wonderful time of the year” is, for some, anything but wonderful. Blood sugar levels can spike from consuming goodies and treats that seem to be everywhere. The ensuing insulin spike often includes irritability, lethargy and foggy-headedness. Shopping, rushing and standing in line can be stressful. Rising frustration and feeling stuck in line can foster a low-grade anxiety that can bring on cravings. Warding off the holiday blues takes a little food planning - but a little planning goes a long way. Sure, we all know what we shouldn't eat; but when sweets are all around us, finding a healthy snack feels like swimming upstream.

The Haiti earthquake should be a wake-up call for all of us. Bear in mind that the Haiti quake was a 7.0 on a strike/slip tectonic fault. The anticipated “big one” for California will also be on a strike/slip tectonic fault, the San Andreas, and is variously estimated to be in the range of the mid 8’s to the low 9’s, hundreds of times stronger than Haiti’s. Notice that there were two phases of the Haiti quake event. The first was the immediate death and destruction from collapsed buildings.
