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 […]

How To Hear Your Body’s Intuition Speaking To You & How I Discovered Mine

      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 5 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 square and type A and totally boxed into the world of conventional thinking. After I became pregnant with my first child, I fully intended to continue on

Why You Think More Clearly When You Spend Time Outside

    We already know that grounding (touching) the earth outside immediately impacts our brains.   This fantastic medical study, published in 2018, documents the brain wave shifts that happen near instantaneously, within milliseconds, recorded via an EEG (electroencephalogram) when the human body is grounded. Today I want to share with you a sneak peek of my next medical journal publication (submitted for review and accepted for publication in Open Journal Of Neurology & Neuroscience) where I suggest why it’s easier to think, and even get clarity and flashes of insight/intuition, when we are outside in nature.     While grounding

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. As someone who has

Connecting With Others Protects Your Own Heart’s Health… Here’s How

      We all intuitively can feel that connecting with others boosts our health, right? How much better do you feel after a warm hug from a friend, the comforting squeeze of a partner’s hand, or the joy of laughing around a dinner table with your children. Sharing space with a loved one for even one minute is enough to completely turn a bad day into a good one. Medical studies have shown that increasing your connection to others not only improves your health, it actually increases your longevity. I feel this has something to do with the fact

Stress Weight Gain Is Different Than Other Forms Of Weight Gain, Here’s Why

    Gaining weight (or losing weight) unintentionally is a common response to chronic or acute stress. And stress weight is different from other forms of weight gain — it typically centers in the abdominal area and is the most stubborn type of weight to release. In fact, a poll conducted by the American Psychological Association found that most of us have experienced a significant weight change thanks to the stress of the pandemic.  The poll revealed that 60% of Americans report undesired weight changes as a result of this stress. But I’m here to help. You can definitely reset your

How To Choose A Healing Path That Will Work Best For You

    There are so many different treatments, techniques, supplements, prescriptions, operations, adjustments, therapies and countless other modalities that all help treat disease.  In fact, there are so many options, it can be overwhelming. So how do you know which one to choose? Sometimes surgery is the right choice.  Certainly the world is full of people who are alive and owe their recovery to a surgical, life saving intervention.  I am one of them, as I ignored the pain of appendicitis for so long that it ruptured, causing a massive inflammatory reaction throughout my entire abdomen, and the surgeon who
