What is the best diet for me?

There is not one “right” diet for everyone. I may have an issue with dairy, while you are just fine drinking milk. I might need to eat a more “fat” focused diet, whereas you may do better with more carbs. I might have an issue with oxalates, you might not do well with glutamates. I […]

Autoimmunity and COV1D-19 (2021)

A paper released in the January 2021 edition in Frontiers in Autoimmunity, tested the autoimmune response to COVID-19 on 55 target tissues and organs. They found that “SARS-CoV-2 antibodies had reactions with 28 out of 55 tissue antigens, representing a diversity of tissue groups that included barrier proteins, gastrointestinal, thyroid and neural tissues, and more. “ This implies is […]

Are your lab tests normal, yet you know that something is wrong?

Have you been told not to worry about it, or that it is just a normal part of aging or worse, that it is all in your head? Chronic conditions don’t occur overnight, but start with subtle changes in physiology. And just like a car’s check engine light, our bodies are equipped with an incredible […]

Are your brain cells Trigger Happy?

Do scents, sounds, or movements really annoy you? Are you finding it harder to think?  Does your brain just get tired? I attended Dr. Datis Kharrazian’s PhD master class on neuroinflammation a few weeks ago and had planned on writing about how our brain cells get way too overactive and become too sensitive. Then, I […]

Are you waking up Wrong?

Sleep is vital for so many functions including protecting our mitochondria/DNA/brain from damage via the hormone melatonin which is a very powerful antioxidant. Happy mitochondria give us all the internal energy we need to keep us vital and healthy.  Sleep also helps clear cellular debris, repair/replace old cells, bring down inflammation, and generate neurotransmitters. But […]

The Food 411: Are you eating your kimchi, onions, and green bananas?

Fermented foods have been around since ancient times and are found in cultures around the world–from Roman sauerkraut to India lassi to Korean kimchi. Just as fermented yeasts are used to make wine, sugars and starches are fermented with lactic acid to produce bacteria such as lactobacillus and bifidobacteria which are vital for our health. […]

The Food 411: Do you Structure your water?

We  all know water is important, but is turns out that its shape might just as important as its quality and quantity. Seriously, could it be all that good water you are drinking is not effectively making it into your cells?  I am no expert on this—frankly, I had my doubts—but strangely enough, it’s true. […]

The Food 411: Are you eating your Bitters?

How often do you eat artichoke, parsley, arugula, radicchio, endive, angelica, chamomile, dandelion, goldenseal, horehound, milk thistle, peppermint, wormwood or yarrow? Most of us don’t, but maybe we should be. Research indicates that these foods can help control blood sugar, stimulate digestion, reduce inflammation, control hunger, balance the thyroid and more. So why don’t aren’t […]

The Food 411: Can calorie restriction Extend your life?

There is a lot of talk about the benefits of fasting for our health. Animal testing studies demonstrate animal calorie restricted diets increase lifespan by up to 40%. How about us? Let’s look at few examples. Biosphere 2 Eight people unexpectedly tested this theory when locked into a bubble. From 1991-93, Biosphere 2 was a […]
