In this quick 6 min video, I take you (ever so briefly because I couldn’t really do much filming with all the […]

10 Ways Grounding Can Directly Support Your Health During This Pandemic

  I’ve gotten lots of emails asking if grounding is a good idea as a way to boost health during this pandemic. The medical literature suggests the answer to this is a resounding “Yes!” for many reasons, probably more than you think. As you might know, most patients who suffer serious illness during Covid19 infection do so because of the body’s inflammatory response (the often referred to “cytokine storm” in the lung adds to this), subsequent hypoxia from lung inflammation, and hypercoagulation of the blood, leading to blood clots. These three reactions the body creates as a response to coronavirus

Holistic Prevention Of Lyme (+ what to do if you find a tick on you!)

  The weather is warming up, and this always means my inbox is full of emails from patients asking how they can reduce their chance of tick bites while still connecting to the earth outside.     Ticks carrying the Lyme disease bacteria (Borrelia Burgdorferi) have been found in all 50 states, so don’t be fooled into thinking its only something that folks in the northeast have to be concerned with.

Your Skin Is Trying To Tell You Something

Skin can speak to us through the location of the eczema patches we have, through acne, through dry tight skin, hives, changes in hair growth, pigmentation, wrinkles, stretch marks… …and much, much more.     Skin can speak subtly through chronic messages that it whispers to you your entire life… ….or skin can scream loudly and angrily during acute transitions and times of crisis.   But no matter how your skin speaks to you, there is always a message to be appreciated.     Because our skin replicates so quickly, it is a wonderful mirror for what is going on

Ever since I blogged about 5 Holistic Ways To Treat ADHD a few weeks ago, I’ve gotten dozens of emails from readers wondering if the same approach would help them with their adult ADHD too. So this is the perfect time to update you on the latest medical research about adult onset ADHD and give you a few additional recommendations.   Although adulthood ADHD can absolutely simply be a continuation for childhood ADHD, researchers are now finding out that there is a separate, totally different, adult onset ADHD syndrome.   This is important to understand, because currently to have a
