Let Me Walk You Through Exactly How Your Body Is Speaking To You Right Now

      One thing I know about intuition is this: everybody has it and everyone can use it.     If I can access my intuition, absolutely without a doubt, so can you. I absolutely was THE most conventional person on the planet… since 4 years old my goal was to become a physician and I worked hard to become an M.D. by the age of 26 years old — I was super square and type A personality  (plus tons of anxiety plus high functioning autism… so yeah, really a truly rigid and boxed in.) After I became pregnant …

What To Do When Facing A Difficult Health Decision

    Several winters ago I attended a wonderful medical conference in which I had the pleasure of hearing Dr. Terry Wahls speak.  She is so impressive, with the amount of medical experience, knowledge and wisdom she possesses… particularly in the field of autoimmune disorders and how diet impacts our body’s health.  Visit her website here if you are interested in learning more about that. That’s not what I loved most, however. The part I loved most was when she talked about helping patients get clear on why they even want to do the work of healing in the first …

Can Cutting Out Bread Actually Improve Your Mental Health?

    Long time readers of my blog already know, since I blogged about this almost a decade ago, that gluten is a neuro-irritant — meaning it causes inflammation in the brain and has been linked to cognitive decline, even dementia.  I wrote this article for you back in 2014 to help explain how dementia could be considered a gluten-induced condition. More recent evidence suggests that not only does the brain inflammation that gluten causes affect your brain, it might also be affecting your mental health, including causing or worsening mood disorders like depression and anxiety.
