A Higher View

Feb 01, 2020

There is a higher view
A place from which
We can see your health issues
Your troubles
Your pain

And connect it all
To your trauma
Your food
Your stress
Your digestion
The way it all works together
Or fails together

Is anyone ever sick with just one thing?
Not for long

There is a higher view
Where we can listen closely
To the whispers
And the cries of your organs
Your brain
Your deepest feelings of not good enough
And struggle

There is a higher view
Where we can see what needs to be done
To piece the puzzle
And...

What if...

Jan 15, 2020

That thing they want to drug you for
That organ they want to remove

What if...

That thing they say is genetic
That thing they claim is inherited

What if...

That thing they say can’t be changed
That thing they say you’re inherently broken

What if...

you had the power
What if your body knew more than them

What if...

What if your body needed you
To listen
To conspire

What if....

you
You
You
Could control your gene expression

What if...

What if you
You
You
Had immense power
POWER
over your...

Nourished 2020

Jan 01, 2020

I so often talk with people who are overwhelmingly hesitant about the very act of STARTING nutritional therapy because they believe it will mean RESTRICTION and DEPRIVATION. That belief creates fear, anxiety and activates all kinds of negative triggers and paralysis.

MYTH: Deprivation makes us healthier
TRUTH: To get healthier, we need NOURISHMENT + Abundance, not deprivation.

Every single client I have ever worked with starts off malnourished. Let that sink in. Everyone is trying to so hard...

Skin Microbiome

Synthetic T-shirts make us smell bad. Here's why.

It seems like we start to smell bad just moments after putting on a polyester shirt. This does not happen with a cotton T-shirt so what's going on? More importantly, is the odor something we should be worried about as health conscious people? 

It turns out, polyester actually promotes growth of one type of bacteria that causes the smell! Whoah! It's not US that smells bad, it's the bacteria!

"The bacteria that flourish on...

Binge Eating

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...

Healing

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...

Digestion

Sep 15, 2019

If you are new to the study of digestion, I can't think of a first, opening sentence that could adequately prepare you to fully take in and appreciate the complexity and perfection of the miracle of the human digestive system. It is a remarkable series of hormonal cues and chemical reactions. It is a complex ecosystem in its own right. We depend on its elegant, precision to stay alive and healthy. And every time we eat food, we feed it. 

Digestive analysis and healing is...

Gluten

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,...

Food System

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...

Fat

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...
