Introduction to Ketosis: A Map To Get There

Sometimes, when you’re a chiropractor, you touch a nerve. So it seems that last week’s post about emotional detox impacted some people in the ways I hope all my articles would. As hard as it was to say some of the things I had to say, the comments I got afterward would suggest that it […]

20 Benefits of Fasting: Physical, Mental, and Spiritual

America is getting fat. Maybe you’ve noticed it happening gradually around you…or to you. As a nation, we’ve fallen prey to a culture of luxury that promotes sensory overstimulation on several levels — overstimulating our eyes and ears with entertainment, overstimulating our tactile senses with pleasure, and overstimulating our taste buds with sugar and chemicals. […]

How Innocent-Looking Shortcuts Can Do More Harm Than Good

If you had to pick one thing that you thought was most destructive to your health and well-being, what would it be? Maybe a sedentary lifestyle? Perhaps sugar? Drug addiction? My Vote For Most Destructive I spent some time thinking about that this morning, and while those are all major life-shorteners, there is a bigger […]

Is The Mediterranean Diet An Effective Weight Loss Tool?

As we gear up for Thursday night’s Fundamental Foods and Friends Dinner, with my friend, Julianna Saitta, I want to answer a question I frequently get asked about the Mediterranean Diet. We have a lot of ground to cover today, so if you’re just joining us, it might help to take a few minutes to […]

Diseases The Mediterranean Diet Can Treat Or Prevent

Among the thousands of diet options that line the shelves at Barnes and Noble, few are as effective (and none are as ancient) as the Mediterranean Diet. Birthed in Old Testament times along the eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea, this is how people have eaten in that part of the world for thousands of […]

Healthy Gut, Healthy Life

I am so excited about tomorrow night’s Fundamental Foods and Friends Dinner with our special guest, Jan Etzel. Every dinner we do here is a great time – and they only get better as we go – but I believe this one is going to clear up a lot of misconceptions about healthy eating and […]

How To Save Money On Your Healthcare Costs

Every minute of news reporting I’ve watched lately has made me long for a return to hurricane coverage. I’m not kidding. I mean, I’m glad that the hurricanes are over, and our lives are getting back to normal, but I just don’t even know how to process everything that has happened since. It’s surreal. I […]

Don’t Get Run Over By Your Spare Tire

The spare tire. The muffin top. The beer belly. So many names for a brutal killer. If you missed last week’s “Wellness Wednesday,” we talked about Metabolic Syndrome, a disorder where three or more systems associated with digestion and sugar management are failing at once. The conditions most commonly associated with Metabolic Syndrome are abdominal […]

Duh…Why Didn’t We Think Of This Sooner?

Have you seen this on Facebook recently? It’s from a grocery store in Ohio, but I’d to see the grocery stores in Florida move this direction. Publix? Winn Dixie? Where are you? Whole Foods? Trader Joe’s? How are you not leading the way with this? This is exactly the kind of thing we should be expecting from […]

Great For Cooking, Great For Not Cooking

Over the last few weeks, as we’ve been talking about the pros and cons of cooking oils, I mentioned butter and ghee. I even included it in the Cooking Oil Scorecard I published last week. I’m sure it raised a few eyebrows, so I wanted to take a moment to make sure you understand what […]
