Empowerment Through Nutritional Healing

Nov 01, 2019

Does it feel to you like there's a barrier in your life that is holding you back? Like something that you can't quite identify is blocking you from alighting your full shine and power into this world?  

That was me for so long. I told doctor after doctor, even as a little kid, "I feel tired." "I think I'm more tired than the other kids." Each time I was washed away with a wave of the hand, "You're fine, you're fine."

I missed weeks and weeks of school in 3rd grade because...

How to Stop Binge Eating Ice Cream

Oct 15, 2019

I speak from experience when I discuss out of control ice cream binges! Here are my tips for dealing with a severe ice cream tendency.

1. Choose better quality. Most ice cream you'll find in grocery stores is full of crappy ingredients like guar gum, fake flavors (often called natural flavors), and other ingredients you might be avoiding like gluten.

So, step number one: when you do choose to eat ice cream, choose the best quality food you can find. (This is my advice, btw for all food...

The Body's Amazing Ability to Heal

Oct 01, 2019

We are not lizards. We cannot grow back a tail (or a leg) if it has been lost. However, our human bodies have a huge ability to heal themselves.

My clients come to me broken and struggling and feeling like they don't belong. They have some sense that eating better might help them feel better. They have some sense that fixing their digestive system might help them. But they generally don't realize how big the  transformation they are about to experience is going to be. They don't...

Healthy Digestion is Essential to Health, Healing and Feeling Empowered in Your Life

Sep 15, 2019

Most people I meet are completely unaware of the vital importance of a balanced  gastrointestinal system. Most people have some sense that constipation or diarrhea or Reflux are digestive problems. Most people have some sense that taking a probiotic supplement might be a good idea. But in general, people do not realize that most health issues and chronic symptoms are connected to digestive inflammation, digestive infections, and impaired digestion.

The vital...

Should I go Gluten Free?

Sep 01, 2019

If your health is perfect and there’s no room for improvement, I say - go with it. Keep doing what you're doing. Most of us fit into a different category though. Most of us don’t feel as good, vibrant, or healthy as we would like.

If you suffer from IBS or IBD, joint pain, diarrhea or constipation, stomach pain, bloating, canker sores, osteoporosis, diabetes, autoimmune disease, PMS or uncomfortable menopause symptoms, food sensitivities, allergies, fibromyalgia, chronic pain,...

A Food System That Makes Us Healthy

Aug 01, 2019
 
I don't think it's too much to ask for an American food system that supports human health and ecosystem health. I'm not suggesting that we eliminate all junk food, all sweets, all processed food. But I am saying that the overwhelming purpose of a food system (that is by the way heavily subsidized by the federal government) should be to support the health of the people.
 
What I see every day is that my clients struggle to navigate a toxic malnourishing food system. They struggle...

Are We All Fat Deficient?

Jul 01, 2019

Remember the fairy tale, Jack Sprat could eat no fat, his wife could eat no lean? That was me - the wife!

Of course, like all of us, I spent many decades avoiding fat like the plague. I had no concept that some types of fat were wholesome, good and essential to my health and that other kinds of fat were toxic and should be avoided. So I avoided all fat and yet I craved it like crazy.

Once I started studying nutrition and gave myself permission to eat fat, I ate an extraordinary amount of it...
