The Gut Immune System Connection – An Animated Video

The gut mucosa connects with the largest population of immune cells in the body!  Is it any wonder that in functional medicine we assess your gut function as one of the initial steps in cases of allergies, asthma, autoimmune disease, eczema, crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, IBS, celiac disease, arthritis and more? It’s often the first […]

10 Secrets for Sound Sleep

Sleep is critical to good health. Just ask anyone who isn’t getting any! Insomnia is one of the most common complaints I hear from my clients, and aside from feeling tired, it can speed the aging process, lead to weight gain, and contribute to hormone imbalance. Poor sleep means waking frequently throughout the night, difficulty […]

Rethinking, Not Replacing

Perhaps this is where it all starts; the idea that we simply need to replace commonly found food items in our meals with something similar to them, rather than rethinking the entire approach to eating. Let’s take bread as an example. For many, it’s a mainstay at all meals of the day; whole wheat toast […]

Statin Side Effects: Almost Universal and Often Missed

One of the most distressing things about practicing medicine these days is the blind faith that most people, doctors and patients, have in cholesterol pills like Lipitor, Crestor, Vytorin, and Zocor, just to name a few of the most popular. This faith comes not from gullibility, but from carefully crafted drug company misdirection. There’s no […]

Simple Strategies for Smart Supermarket Shopping

Smart grocery shopping is key when transitioning to and maintaining a “real food” approach. The supermarket can be a stressful, agonizing experience if you don’t have strategies in place before you get there, and if you don’t have a plan of attack, you may be tempted to toss items into your cart from your past […]

Finding it hard to lose weight? Although many factors can hinder weight loss, one of the sneakier is sleep deprivation. Research shows people who regularly sleep five hours or less a night can gain as much as two pounds in a week. One study showed women who slept five or fewer hours were more likely […]

It Is SO All About The Diet!

How did we ever come up with the idea that the winning formula to the body we’ve always wanted is: “exercise for ‘x’ number of minutes per day (possibly hating every minute of it )+ eat ‘healthfully’ but ‘with everything in moderation”? It is not. What you eat is far more than half the equation. […]

Nitrate/Nitrite Shock and Mayonnaise

I was astonished to read Chris Kresser’s excellent blog post The Myth about Nitrates and Nitrites. Everyone knows that Nitrites/Nitrates are potentially carcinogenic. When I allowed my children to eat hot dogs or lunch meats that contained them, I felt worried. Now, according to peer reviewed studies, not only are they not harmful, but may […]

Lyme Disease

I’ve treated many people with Lyme disease over the years, and I consider myself a Lyme-literate physician. I’ve seen lots of people who’ve suffered greatly from this illness, people who have seen many practitioners, and who have tried everything from multiple, high-dose, long-term antibiotic regimens to complex herbal protocols, sometimes exhausting their bank accounts without […]
