5 Scientific Benefits of Beets!

I’ve been picking up fresh heirloom beets at the Farmer’s Market from Red Wagon Organic Farm every week anticipating the delicious complex flavor they add to my smoothies (recipe coming soon!) and the boost in energy from the nitric oxide they can produce when consumed. So I thought I’d share with you some of the great benefits of […]

Sprints. Good for This Post Menopausal Woman!

It’s not every day that a perfect stranger says “Wow you are AMAZING!” But it did happen today in the park. I go to my park (Western Springs Park in Grey Lynn) next door and do sprints 2 – 3 times a week. The weather is simply stunning in Auckland today, so I couldn’t not […]

“I could never give up my ________”

One of the most frustrating lines I hear on an all too regular basis is that: “I could NEVER give up my (insert favorite substance here).” People say it when they hear my approach to health doesn’t include rice, pasta or bread at every meal. They say it when I tell them my father, who had […]

Once Again for Organic Food

As a clinician I know that common sense is an incredibly reliable tool: it’s most likely that the patient returned from a back-packing trip has abdominal pain and diarrhea because of some exposure from the trip. As a clinical I also know that science has its place: when the physical exam doesn’t quite fit the […]

Meat Quality and Paleo

One very, very important distinction about the True Paleo regime is the source, and subsequent quality, of our proteins. Fresh, wild salmon and packaged, smoked salmon are not interchangeable. Nor are the occasional serving of uncured bacon from pastured pork and the Oscar Meyer’s shrink-wrapped, sodium nitrate and nitrite-rich variety. And when we get into […]

Sweating

I once saw a naturopath who told me that given my O blood type, that is was essential for me to break a sweat every day in order to feel my best. I reluctantly and very briefly followed her recommendation, but then quickly returned to my old habit of long walks and kundalini yoga, neither […]

Are General Health Checks Useless?

Many people believe that visiting the doctor regularly will prevent problems. Diseases may be diagnosed and cured early, before they cause harm. We have our cars checked on a regular basis. Why shouldn’t the same apply to our bodies? But are general health checks really helpful? Putting it differently; could health checks possibly be harmful? […]

New Study – Vitamin D and Cancer Survival

Cancer patients who had higher levels of 25-Hydroxyvitamin D were linked with better survival rates and longer remission than those who are vitamin D-deficient. The findings were published in July 2014 in the Endocrine Society’sJournal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. The meta-analysis reviewed 25 studies that measured  vitamin D levels at or near the time […]

Glutathione: The Master Anti-Oxidant

The human body is under oxidative stress from a variety of sources at all times.  To combat this stress and damage the body utilizes anti-oxidants of all different varieties.  Glutathione (GSH) is a very special peptide molecule that provides the greatest anti-oxidant protection and recharges other anti-oxidants within the body. Every cell in the body produces glutathione.  […]
