How’s Business? Watch out for what you eat

Every time we turn on the news, it seems we have to be more careful about protecting our immune system as well becoming healthier in our lifestyles. This week, I met with Dr. Cori Stern-Torres of Health Point Nutrition, a chiropractor and advanced clinical nutritionist with an office at 122-15 25th Road in Flushing.

Stern-Torres is one of 289 health practitioners who have graduated from an advanced clinical training program in nutrition response testing. Stern-Torres sat with me to give tips on how to keep a healthy immune system as well as what she can offer and contribute as a health professional to Queens.

She said, “The food you eat determines your state of health. Avoid sugar because germs love sugar. Sugar is not only food for germs, but it is also an inflammatory that will only make you feel worse. You have heard this before, but eat quality proteins like beef, chicken, lamb and fish.”

I asked Stern-Torres if drinking a lot of water was something to do. She said, “I advise all my patients to drink a lot of filtered water. It will definitely help your immune system get stronger.” I asked her to tell me about her practice and how she can help Queens residents.

She said, “I also do a lot of nutritional counseling with regard to helping and teaching people how to properly diet and realistically improve their health and body tone. I also do chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture and foot reflexology.” She also holds free public health and wellness education workshops each month.
