We have to lose the belief that some foods are “good” and some are “bad.” You’re probably thinking I’m being hypocritical because I often write about the dangers of certain foods and ingredients in them. But hear what I am saying. In order to be able to lose weight in a truly healthy way and establish a…Continue

Last month I was interviewed by The Iron Jen McDonough and shared some really simple steps to make this your healthiest, best year ever. One of the basic principles of my coaching is to use what I call “baby steps” – small, gradual, incremental changes rather than large, sweeping ones.
Baby steps may not seem very effective but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Each small, consistently practiced change builds on the next and they create…Continue

The common thread between gum disease and chronic health conditions is inflammation — the body’s natural response to an infection or injury.

We recently saw how powerfully the sadness of a broken heart can impact a person when Debbie Reynolds died one day after her beloved daughter, Carrie Fisher. Studies have shown that…Continue
February is when we celebrate Valentine’s Day and it is also National Heart Month. We focus on the heart for both, although in different ways. I thought it might be helpful to give you some quick and easy facts about heart health. Keeping your heart healthy and strong is something we all should make a priority. So…Continue
I love it when someone asks for help and actually listens and follows through! Last August a close friend and colleague of my husband’s stopped by and wanted me to look at his bloodwork and give him my thoughts. He said he thought the doctor would tell him his cholesterol was too high. When I looked at his…Continue
I was reading a very interesting and alarming article in Life Extension Magazine about some hidden factors behind the kidney disease epidemic. In case you were not aware, more than 1 in 10 Americans have some stage of chronic kidney disease and the prevalence for developing kidney disease is…Continue

We just finished with the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays and all the delicious (and rich) foods associated with them. While I enjoyed every morsel, I clearly felt the difference in my body after eating foods I only have once a year. I have incorporated periodic cleansing into my normal routine and I would…Continue
The beginning of a brand new year just screams out for establishing new, better, healthier habits! And most people try to do just that. Unfortunately, their efforts are woefully short-lived and totally ineffective. Making New Year’s resolutions usually doesn’t last past mid-January. And most people’s renewed…Continue
As we approach the beginning of a new year most of us have had our fill of the holiday treats and are ready to get back to clean eating and a more normal routine. At least I know I am. That being said, this is usually the time of year when people begin making New Year’s resolutions to start diets, lose…Continue
I’ve been reading articles and posts about how to transform traditional holiday goodies into more healthy fare. You know making them gluten free, or low fat or whatever your idea of “healthier” is. My thoughts on the holidays are a little different.
They come around once a year. In my family there…Continue

We’ve all heard of the placebo effect and in case you are not familiar with it, according to Medicinenet.com it is simply “a remarkable phenomenon in which a placebo -- a fake treatment, an inactive substance like sugar, distilled water, or saline solution -- can sometimes improve a patient's condition…Continue

Personally, our family is growing. We celebrated the…Continue

I read Genesis 18 in a devotional recently and it struck me that this principle is critical to anyone seeking to lose weight. You may remember when God was preparing to destroy Sodom, Abraham wanted God to spare the city. He began asking if God would still destroy it if there were 50 righteous people there. Once God…Continue
