Liver & Bowels: Your Best Friends for Spring Cleaning

Spring Cleaning… Let’s talk about bowel movements
In nature, the transition from winter to spring is a transition from stillness to expansion, from hibernation to rebirth; materials from the past are cleared to make room for new growth. Similarly, the bowels and the liver work together to cleanse the body allowing for regeneration and transformation. In keeping with the cycles of nature, spring is a great time to strengthen liver and bowel function and reinforce this […]

Liver Loving Habit-start the day with Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

Love Month Libido Lessons

February is the month of love; it is the month of Romance; the month of Valentines day; and also the month of Heart Health Awareness.

Libido or organic sexual desire is a question that comes up often in my practice.  However, it is often brought up as an after thought to a host of many other symptoms.  An imbalance in one part of the body will most often have threads of imbalance in other parts of […]

Heart Health & Why It Matters

The heart organ is one of the most awe-inspiring creations of nature. There is about 5 liters of blood in the body but the heart effectively pumps over 6000 liters of blood per day. And, with only minimal care for the most part, the organ pumps continuously for 80+ years. There’s no equivalent man-made pump that has that kind of reliability.

60 Pounds Weight Loss Later – Healthy Living 101

I no longer have a specific weight goal, because this way of eating became more about principals, and nothing to do with weightloss, and surprisingly, nothing to do with “willpower”. As someone who had been overweight their whole life, willpower seemed to be something that completely eluded me.  I could not understand why I could not find within myself the willpower to lose weight, or if I did, to find the willpower to keep it off.  […]
