Hello, hello! I hope your spring is off to a beautiful start. The weather is gorgeous, things around us are blooming and new seasons of life are occurring all around us! I usually begin to start cleaning up my personal garden every spring and have always found it fun to apply my garden analogy to my friendships. Gardens and friends can contain annuals, perennials, evergreens and of course, even weeds.
Hello, hello! It is World Health Day. If you are not feeling like you have a world of health, I want you to ask yourself the four questions below. Each one ties into one of my Four Pillars of Health and can be used as a simple check-in with yourself.
It is officially Spring Solstice! The sun is shining, the days are getting longer and the fruits and vegetables weconsume are changing.
Every now and then, I love a delicious (and healthy) Bloody Mary filled with so many yummy and organic ingredients!
The first time a patient is in my office, I will ask if they have had a concussion or hit their head. If either one of those questions comes back as a yes, I know we need to fix it. The brain processes close to 17 trillion messages a minute, any blows or inflammation to this area will slow this transmission which means the rest of the body at some point also won’t work properly either.
When I first started practicing, we didn’t know exactly what MTHFR was. Now we do and to shortly put it, it means that you do not detoxify the same way that everyone else’s body does. The great news is, my treatment over the years hasn’t changed. For the treatment of MTHFR, I traditionally focus on my environment and nutrition pillars from the Four Pillars of Health. These two pillars are instrumental in making sure your body is operating optimally.
We have doctors for everything – lady doctors, heart doctors, kidney doctors, colon doctors… you name it, we have a doctor for it. But, what at I have found over the years, is none of those doctors are actually talking to each other, which is a major issue.
Have you been told you have allergies? Have you been told there is nothing you can do? Well, I’m here to tell you that’s wrong and will do so by tapping into two of my four pillars of health.
Are you crazy half the month? Are you blaming it on hormones? What is this word that keeps getting thrown around and used to justify our moods? Today we’re covering just this.
One of my favorite things to journal about is what I am most grateful for! So for the next 21 days, I challenge you to do the same and take the time to write down what you are most grateful for. I’ve made it easy and added a journal for you to download, print off and get to writing.
