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.)

Tons Of Holistic Health Ideas To Help You Move Through Grief

    A few years ago I became a Death Doula. You would think as a physician we would be taught in detail about the death and dying process in medical school, but we weren’t. Not at all.

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.

Why Our Posture Affects Our Energy Level And Our Emotions

    The last time I ran my annual Chakra Healing Class, one of the most interesting topics came up. On of the participants (thank you Steve!) mentioned that he noticed becoming more short of breath when his posture slumped. That brought on a wonderful discussion of all the different ways that poor posture literally physically affects your health… everything from dry mouth and dental issues to decreased oxygenation, decreased sleep quality and even increased ADHD symptoms.   But posture affects more than just our physical body… it affects our spirit.       In class I shared a link

    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
