Top 5 Pediatrician-Approved Natural Remedies for Your Child’s Headache
If you’ve ever suffered from headaches, you know how awful they can be. I, knock-on-wood, don’t often get headaches, but the ones I’ve had have been doozies and I have endless empathy for kids and adults who get them on a regular basis. And of course, when your child has a headache, the first concern that might pop into some of your heads is that something could be wrong – really, really wrong.
Another Way to Evaluate Your Health
It’s hard not to live and die(t) by the scale. As a professional, I know better, but will admit to falling into the trap of living by the numbers on the scale. However, I’ve learned just how defeating those numbers can be when used as the sole basis for my state of health.
What to Ask a Prospective Dentist
Life is a process of relationship. There is no life without relationship. So relationship is the basis of human existence. Relationship is the most important thing in life. Do you see the truth of that, not verbally, not intellectually, but actually with your heart and mind? Can you be aware, alert, so that you are watching your relationship and are learning from that awareness how you respond, what your reactions are?

How to set you Goals to Get and Stay Fit Once and For All!
Have you ever wondered how you can actually have long-term success at changing your diet and fitness routine? The answer is: Make it a way of life, not just a diet or quick fix to solve a problem.

How to stay fit while nursing?
One of the most common questions I get asked is - “Am I OK to be doing high intensity fitness training when I’m nursing?” My quick answer is “Yes!” I personally have two super healthy “fat” babies that were exclusively breast fed until 7/8 months old.
Cardiovascular Disease Part 3: Avoiding Heart Failure
This is one of the most diagnosed health issues in both men and women over the age of 45; but the problem starts way before this age – in the routines of our lifestyle. In our first two blogs in this series, we talked about how the mind and emotions (part 1) played an important role in cardiovascular disease (CVD), then continued onto health in the arteries (part 2). In this blog we are going to concentrate on the heart; but the heart of the issue is not the organ – it is lifestyle! Even though this is one of the most prominent causes of deaths in the world, it is one of the most preventable.
How I Stay Healthy Without Living In A Bubble
I have been in the wellness industry for almost 20 years, and the most dangerous thing I have seen is the “all or nothing” mindset. Sometimes, when you start an extreme diet with the intention of doing it forever, you can’t help but swing to the opposite extreme. One week you are eating 50 bananas a day and restricting your fat intake, and the next week you wind up binging on ice cream and french fries. Sound familiar? The popularity of extreme fad diets over the last decade has strengthened that mindset, even making it acceptable. Extremes can lead to self-sabotage or worse, orthorexia, which leads to isolation.
Cardiovascular Disease Part 2: Atherosclerosis
In our last blog we looked at why matters of the Heart and Mind can affect lifestyle issues that can play a big role in cardiovascular (CV) issues. Here we are going to look more at what happens in the tubes. Arterial disease accounts for the vast majority of patients that suffer
Cardiovascular Disease Part 1: Where Do We Start?
After doing a blog on how statins might not always be good for you, several people asked me what to do, so I decided to do a multiple part blog on cardiovascular issues. We sit at a unique time in history when heart issues, both emotionally and physically, play one of the most prominent roles
Running Is Melting My Fat

Why Statins are a waste of time?
A little over two years ago, I got a nasty parasite while adventuring in the tropics that landed me in the hospital so fatigued I could barely move. Fortunately for me, I finally found out what the parasite was and my health is back to normal. At the time, because of my age and being
Tongue-to-Bum Part 5: Small Intestine – Grand Central Station of Digestion
As we continue on our adventurous journey through the digestive tract, we remember the first four (4) sections: preparing for the journey, entering the mouth to get on the subway, being swallowed on our descent into the amusement park ride of the Stomach. Once we are in the small intestine we notice that this is quite a different environment than what you have encountered so far on your journey. Up to this point, very little – except some simple carbohydrates and possibly a little bit of alcohol – has been absorbed.
