Ask the Naturopathic Chef
This month's question for " The Medicine Chef " Tina Martini:

Is it Ok to eat greens like Kale, when you have Osteoporosis? Should they be eaten raw?

Tina's Advice:

Oxalic Acid, found in greens, interferes with our ability to uptake Calcium. It also has a binding effect on the mineral, which can lead to Kidney Stones. While cooking does help: maximize Oxalic Acid elimination by blanching your greens in boiling water and Calcium Carbonate. Just three minutes in the Calcium-infused boiling water, remove, plunge into ice water, drain and place in your blender. Not only will you have eliminated most of the unwanted Oxalates, you have increased absorption of the other valuable micro nutrients. Eating greens raw, can actually compound the Calcium displacement challenge already present due to the Oxalates. Use the blanching technique described, saute', sweat, or bake into chips. And, while crispy chips are great, crispy bones are not. This technique will put you back on the Bone Density Track!

Autoimmune Nutrition Coach, Alene Brennan

"Many autoimmune diseases are “invisible diseases” in that the person “looks healthy.” However, they may be experiencing significant symptoms that cannot be seen. In the world of MS, fatigue, heat sensitivity and pain are big symptoms. It’s important to ask questions and pay close attention to that client, so you can get a good read on what’s truly going on in their body on any given day...."
