Healthy School Lunches: Forever An Oxymoron?

I certainly hope not. But there’s clearly a lot of work that needs to be done. Just this past week, I had an opportunity to speak at length with a woman who teaches kindergarten at one of New York City’s Public Schools. She commented that yes, there are vegetables offered, but they’re so horribly prepared […]

Study Compares the Effect of Soybean and Coconut Oil On Belly Fat and Heart Disease Risk in Women

A randomized, double-blind clinical trial involving 40 women aged 20-40 years who had waist circumferences greater than 88cm (greater than ~35in) compared the effects of coconut oil and soybean oil on markers of belly fat and risk of heart disease (1). The women were split into two groups of 20. All women were instructed to […]

The Importance of Your Sleep Cycle (and How to Reset It)

You already know that sleep is important, but did you know that your sleep cycle, or circadian rhythm, actually determines your hormones, energy levels, and how well you recover from illness? The word circadian comes from the latin circa, meaning “about” or “around,” and diem, meaning “day.” Your sleep cycle is “about a day,” or about twenty-four hours. Before clocks […]

The Triglyceride/HDL Ratio: What Can It Tell You?

For years, measurements of blood cholesterol have been used to assess the risk of heart disease. We have been intensively educated about the role of LDL-cholesterol (LDL-C), commonly nicknamed the bad cholesterol and HDL-cholesterol (HDL-C), often called the good cholesterol. For many reasons, lowering LDL-C has become a primary goal in cardiovascular prevention. A strong correlation has been found […]

What About Hashimoto’s and Goitrogenic Foods?

The cruciferous family of vegetables, also called brassicas, have been demonized for years as a cause of hypothyroidism. These foods are sometimes classified as goitrogens because over-consumption of these foods appears to block thyroid peroxidase (TPO), causing the thyroid to grow more thyroid tissue resulting in a goiter. These foods contain sulfur-containing compounds called glucosinolates […]

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 […]
