Natural Remedies for Liver Health and Support

In preparing for the new year I’d like to talk about natural remedies for liver health and support because let’s face it – livers don’t get a lot of love. It’s really easy to take your liver for granted, never really realizing how much it does for you on a day to day basis. But […]

How to Drink Coffee for Better Health

When people ask me if herbal medicine works, I sometimes say, “do you drink coffee?” Coffee is a powerful herb and, when it’s extracted in hot water, it becomes a medicinal drink — one of the most widely used herbals on the planet, second only to tea. This potent medicinal brew contains more than 1,000 beneficial compounds, including caffeine […]

Does Leaky Gut Cause Autoimmune Disease?

The idea that a damaged intestine could be key to Autoimmune Disorders is finally hitting the medical community. Why? Because autoimmune diagnoses are growing exponentially and physicians have limited tools to tackle them.  With my own history of Graves Disease (hyperthyroidism), Celiac Disease, and probable Addison’s Disease, I can clearly relate… What is Autoimmunity and […]

Commit to Your Health: Drink Bone Broth

2015, it’s time to make the commitment to Yourself, to your health.  If you are ready here’s one of the best things you can do for yourself. Begin drinking bone broth and eating lacto-fermented vegetables daily. It’s a simple thing to do which creates enormous shifts for many health issues. Bone broth, yes bone soup.  The first […]

5 Reasons I Love Colostrum

When it comes to healing your gut, there are many different diets and supplements that aid in the healing process- some good, others not so good. Over the past few years, I’ve tried just about every supplement and diet to help heal my gut and resolve my digestive issues. Through trial and error, I’ve found […]

Sunshine and Suicide

There’s a bit of a saying amongst psychiatrists that any modestly effective antidepressant can make some vulnerable people manic. That’s true for prescription antidepressants (and a well-known risk of taking them) but also for certain effective supplements such as SAM-E (1). It’s also true for nature’s own antidepressants, including sunshine (2) and acute sleep deprivation (3). […]

Qualities of Ecocentric Communities

I recently read an excerpt from Derrick Jensen’s book titled “Endgame” that listed ten (of the twenty) premises of industrial civilization and the inherent problems with this form of living.  The writing, though perhaps considered extreme and alarmist by some, has correctly described the problem (in my opinion).  I wanted to expand on these ten […]

Re|Evolution of Thought

The last 12 months have seen both an evolution of my thinking and a [personal] revolution in how I want to convey these thoughts. Prior to this year I was very attached to the Paleo label. I was, after all, ‘That Paleo Guy‘. But throughout the year that was 2014, my relationship with Paleo, and […]

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Have you ever noticed that sometimes when you think you’re hungry, you’re actually just thirsty? While I’m certainly not suggest you sip on water instead of eating a balanced, Paleo meal, consider the impact of being a bit dehydrated in combination with a hectic, stressful day at work when you may not have eaten properly […]

When to Avoid Xylitol, Erythritol, and Other Sugar Alcohols

America is on a never-ending quest to satisfy its sweet tooth without the health risks of sugar and other sweeteners. Most people now know better to avoid toxic artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and sucralose, but what about the more “natural” ones, such as xylitol, erythritol, and sorbitol? Although they’re found on the shelves of health food stores, it’s worth […]
