You can't be Exhausted and Healthy

Uncategorized Aug 25, 2019

You can be skinny and healthy. You can be curvy and healthy, but you can't be Exhausted and Healthy. This is something so sorely missed throughout the "ENTIRE" health world!

Our cells are slowly succumbing to the chronic effects of stress as people fret about the shape inside the mirror or the oversize of the pants, but is anyone really bothering to address the real issues here?

Yeah, yeah, yeah, lots of "professionals" will "try" to address the adrenal issues, by saying, "your thyroid is tired." And then proceed to the long, tedious, expensive "guesswork" plan by slathering on nutrients and anti-inflammatory diets while putting you on painful and boring restrictive eating plans, none of which are going to address the fact that your cells are slowly shutting down and turning you into a tired, dried up, old husk.

I can tell you unequivocally that I've never met a woman over 40 who isn't suffering from the physical effects of chronic stress. Chronic stress isn't something that...

Let's meet God halfway

Uncategorized Aug 22, 2019

Let's meet God halfway. Let's stop fighting biological impulses and start understanding what the divine is trying to say inside of our cells!

Let's abandon the idea that these amazing structures we live in are stupid and inherently flawed, which is the premise of so much of medicine, stop trying to suppress any reactions and start trying to understand the why, what and how.

Think of it this way:
Our biology is not separate from the force that makes the universe, our biology is not separate from our food, thoughts, emotions or spirit.
So instead of trying to coerce by using restrictive methods, restrictive diets, and restrictive means to strong-arm and push our bodies to do something that we believe is the next step. 

Why don't we start asking what our body needs?

Why don't we partner with our cells? Why don't we say, I'm here to collude with you, to be in cohabitation with you, to form a community with you. What if instead of seeing our cells as separate, we...

Quick fixes always fail

Uncategorized Aug 18, 2019

It seems like the quick fix model has its hooks in so many people, and yet, few if anything offered in the world of hormonal balance, energy or metabolic repair has legs.

Here are 3 VERY important things that you must-do if you want to heal your metabolism and find REAL health and happiness...

1. Unlearn everything you currently believe about what is "healthy".  Most people fail to heal because of their old belief patterns. Usually, these exist because, at one point, they gave you quick, yet not lasting results, and have in fact been part of the long term damage to your system, but, because you hold onto the memory of temporary change, you think...well maybe….

A few Example are:

-I need to do lots of cardio to stay lean

-I need to eat less and less to stay thin and healthy

-I need to avoid salt, saturated fat and sugar

-I shouldn't eat 3 hours before bed

-If I do not work out every day, I am a total loser

-Sugar makes me fat, diabetic and feeds cancer

Is it all your gut?

Uncategorized Aug 15, 2019

I saw a Facebook post from someone the other day that said that they were a gut specialist. 

They weren't a doc, so it wasn't an MD or a DO or an ND, now, my first thought was you can't possibly be a gut specialist because already by name it assumes you've just taken the gut out of the body, which is impossible.  The label says, the gut is the one thing you're looking at and that means by default you have no idea the relationship of the gut to the rest of the system. I say this because you can't ever just heal one thing. 

I've never met a person who just had a gut problem, not even one time, never met a person who just had a hormonal problem, or just a cardiovascular problem. 

The reality is, your body is one beautiful divine connected structure. The minute that we isolate is the minute that we actually set a ceiling on what our healing can be. 

The most unfortunate thing is everybody wants to be an expert in something and few people are willing to study...

Here's what not to eat....

Uncategorized Aug 11, 2019

When I peruse Facebook, I swear what ends up happening to me is that I am filled with the thought that most people in the health industry honestly think that God fu*@ed up. 

They're promoting these plans and programs that are all about, eliminating so much food from our lives under this whole premise that that food is bad, carbs are bad, fats are bad, protein is bad...so much bad.

When did we become so arrogant that we assumed that things from the natural world were actually bad, wrong, and not meant for human consumption? 

All of this, in spite of the fact that there are still indigenous cultures on this planet, consuming many of those so so-called "bad" foods that they're saying are going to kill you. 

Let's take corn. Corn is a sacred food to the tribes of the southwest US,  it literally is used in ceremony, it is a main food staple in a multitude of ways, and yet many with health issues are told to avoid it.

Could it be that it isn't the corn? Or...

How good sex leads to better longevity

Uncategorized Aug 08, 2019

Do you know that feeling when your beloved caresses you - and your skin lights up, you get goosebumps, you feel that lovely warm rush and tingling throughout your body and you just want more.

How long has it been since you felt that?

I ask because I talk to women all the time who haven’t felt that in years...that rush of anticipation, those goosebumps, that excitement, that sense of desire - and they miss it. Sadly, the longer it's been gone, the further away from it we are, the more distant it seems and the less we relate to it.

You probably know that feeling, where that look of desire from your partner, prompts frustration, sometimes even anger - “just get away from me”  “Oh No, not now” “I'm busy” “I'm tired.” That something that used to make you giggle now makes you cringe and even sometimes makes you want to lash out because it feels more like control an obligation.

Some women come to accept this as just part...

Finding the right Doctor isn't the answer

Uncategorized Aug 04, 2019

It seems like a lot of people are on the search for the “perfect” Doctor.

Sorry to say, that just isn’t the answer to your health journey.

Truth is, if you have exhaustion, hormonal issues, inflammation, autoimmune issues, weight issues, and pain - you have patterns you will need to manage and deal with the rest of your life.

So, what if you find that perfect person and they retire? Or worse yet…die?

Then What?

Wouldn’t it make more sense to learn to adopt habits which can always work? To access skills that are specific to your system and how you operate?  To know how to recognize what your body does under stress and how to change those patterns no matter what happens?

If you know this - you won’t ever have to search out that “perfect” practitioner ever again!

It is time we cultivated our own knowledge and skill and took responsibility and ownership of our personal healing.  Now, you DO need someone to show...

Are you waiting for Easy?

Uncategorized Aug 01, 2019

A friend of mine was talking the other day about the time it takes to build a business, saying you have to give yourself at least a year of hard work,  long days of sacrifice, often diminished sleep and time with friends and time with family, with very little money and challenge before you really expect to begin to see big results.

To this conversation, she got a litany of agreement.

Now you may be thinking what does this have to do with health?

Well, I wondered how many people will agree to invest a year of their life in building a business but will balk at investing a year of their life in their health?  

So, I ask, are you waiting for it to be easy?
Truth is, our body is way more complex than any business could ever be….we live in a complex biological structure with multidimensional levels:  physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

We are dealing with a structure that can carry forward not only the experiences of our life...aka the emotions, trauma,...

”I don't have time for that”

Uncategorized Jul 28, 2019

Do you say: ”I don't have time for that

Or  “Time is my biggest obstacle

Do you find yourself saying time is the reason you can’t exercise, or meditate or eat the best foods or even nourish yourself?

I get it, I have 3 kids, I run a practice, I cook all of our food…I really get it.

But, can I ask, is there another life coming to you that I just don’t know about? Is there a second wind of full refueling for your cells and systems waiting for you at retirement?

Because this isn’t just a body, this body is your life, it is your assets, it is your retirement, your savings, your financial net worth as well as your joy, inspiration, love, happiness and the only way you will ever get to experience anything AMAZING ever!

All of that other stuff…yes stuff occupying your time…work, cleaning your house, checking Facebook, watching TV, driving kids to practice….

If they are acting as your deterrent to...

Functional Medicine isn't the answer

Uncategorized Jul 21, 2019

Years ago, I thought Functional Medicine was the way to go...it was when I was still new at practice and honestly, hadn’t really gotten my feet planted yet.  In my desire to have better answers for my patients, I dove in, expecting to find massive clarity and huge answers to some of the challenging issues presenting for so many of my patients: exhaustion, weight gain, perpetual hormonal issues, pain, mood disorders and more.

Now, only about a year into that adventure, I walked away from functional medicine altogether, finding that it was nothing more than a way to keep prescribing an ongoing onslaught of supplements and massive doses of “bioidentical hormones” to sick people who had no other options.  

Problem was...it just didn’t work.  Patients weren’t getting better and staying there and along the way, they were having issues emerge in other systems which required totally different treatment plans...consequently, you would start at the...
