Meet Ken!

It’s story time again. While I enjoy writing educational blogs, my passion lives with patient ‘stories’. In the medical world, we call these ‘case studies’, but to me, it’s so sterile sounding. These are real people….parents, siblings, children- unique individuals […]

Navigating “The Holidays” Healthfully

Oh yes…it’s that time of year!  A traditional time of overindulgence that begins with Thanksgiving and continues through to the New Year.  Maybe it starts with not making the time to fit in exercise.  Maybe it starts with that first […]

The Best Time to Take Your Blood Pressure Medication

Are You an Everyday Addict?

Addiction is a word that conjures up many images- usually of the heroin addict, the alcoholic or the chain smoker.  But have you ever thought about whether or not you might have an addiction to something less melodramatic?  Did you […]

Sugar Fuels Cancer and ADHD

Caffeine Is a Trigger for Anxiety Attacks

If you have wandered around this blog, you may have noticed that I have the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine on my ‘faves’ list.  Rightly deserving its place in my heart, it puts out the evidence that supports the movement […]

Going Organic – The Clean 17

In the last twenty years, Americans have been a part of a fast-growing movement.  It’s a movement so strong that even the nation’s largest food companies and retailers could not overlook it.   What could be responsible for $24.5 billion dollars […]

Going Organic – The Dirty Dozen

In the last post, we defined ‘organic’ and revealed the Clean 17.  Even with this list, the decision to buy organic is one that is not as black and white as it may seem.  The choice to purchase organic products […]

You might have read my latest blog and just maybe you wondered if you were low in Vitamin D.  If you didn’t wonder, then let me say it again because chances are, you are low!.  Most Americans do not have […]

You Probably Have Low Vitamin D Levels

Vitamin D is one of the “hottest” avenues of research in allopathic medicine* today.  There is increasing physician and patient awareness about having the right vitamin D level for optimal health.  Interestingly, vitamin D, the vitamin we get from the […]

Low Fat Diets Are Unhealthy

If you’ve read Michael Pollan’s work, you may already know how, decades ago, Americans were emphatically urged to cut fat out of their diet in order to avoid heart disease.  The promise: the more foods you converted to low fat […]
