There are myriad reasons why any one person, man or woman, might be struggling with weight loss. There are obvious reasons such as lack of activity, eating too many processed foods or just eating too much in general.

One of the principles of my Today's the Day plan is having a form of clean protein at each meal. I've shared before that when I was younger – all the way through my 20's and 30's – and the beginning of my 40's – I was essentially a…Continue

There are two very powerful, yet simple and easy to use “hacks” anyone can use to reduce blood sugar spikes, get excess sugar out of the blood and help with weight loss. This will not only benefit anyone with type 2 or pre-diabetes but is helpful for everyone as these spikes are damaging.

When I speak to people and we talk about supplements and what they are taking, almost every one makes a point to say they are supplementing with calcium.

I have worked with people who have varied types of diets. While I don’t particularly like labels, I am what I consider a “qualitarian” – someone who eats animal products within a plant based diet, my overriding concern is food quality. I have known people in the past who felt their vegetarian or vegan…Continue
Have you ever heard of halotherapy? I hadn’t either until a friend of mine mentioned “salt rooms” after reading these two previous blog posts (here and…Continue

This summer was predicted to be one of the worst when it comes to tick borne diseases. When you think of ticks you automatically think of Lyme disease but there’s more than just that. Ticks carry not only bacterial diseases such as Lyme, but also viral illnesses like Powassan…Continue

You may be familiar with using ginger for nausea, motion sickness, morning sickness and upset stomach. And it is wonderful for all those things. I take ginger and turmeric capsules for minor muscular aches and pains and it works better than pain relievers for me.
I just read some…Continue
The whole vaccine issue is a very controversial one with people passionately on one side or the other. As a new grandmother I am extremely concerned about the safety of all these vaccines children are given from birth onward. I know my son and daughter-in-law have researched and discussed how they feel most…Continue

Earlier this month I did several posts about how salt impacts physical health. I find it fascinating that what we’ve been told for years about salt being bad for you, causing high blood pressure, heart disease, making you thirsty and dehydrated are now being proven to be false!

You have probably heard of or read about HIIT, high intensity interval training, and how you can get excellent fitness benefits in a fraction of the time of conventional aerobic exercise. For most of us, who find…Continue

When people talk about whether to drink coffee or not, usually the thing they focus on is the caffeine. If you are sensitive to caffeine as I am, you…Continue
One of the important principles in the Today’s the Day Plan is to drink one-half your body weight in ounces of water and to include ¼ teaspoon of natural, unprocessed salt, like Celtic or Himalayan Crystal,…Continue
Drawing or painting; doing arts and crafts; cross-stitch or needlepoint; dancing; singing; playing an instrument – do these activities have any impact on your health? You bet they do! Probably more than you even realize.
Maybe, like me, you have never considered yourself “artistic” because a young 3-year old…Continue
Typically we begin spring cleaning our homes in March or April, before Easter and Passover. The weather is beginning to be nice and we can at least occasionally open the windows and let the fresh, clean spring air in as we scrub and polish our homes.
As much as I dislike housecleaning (and anyone who knows me…Continue
Sodas like Coke are definitely not healthy. They’re loaded with high fructose corn syrup which is an especially strong driver of obesity, heart disease and diabetes. It is an especially dangerous sweetener because unlike glucose and other forms of sugar, it is the only one directly metabolized by the liver and which is almost immediately converted to fat.
Add to that it has phosphoric acid (all sodas do) which breaks down bone tissue! And if you were thinking drinking sugar-free Coke…Continue
If I asked you to name one of the most benign, safe over-the-counter type drugs, most of you would name one of the anti-inflammatory NSAID drugs like ibuprofen. Many people use these drugs weekly for minor aches and managing chronic pain. And of course, since we don’t need a prescription, we figure they’re…Continue
