What To Do When You “Overdo It” During The Holidays

Ah, holiday gatherings. Special dinners. Lavish desserts. Too much alcohol. Potluck. Chocolate – lots of chocolate. Office parties. School parties. Grandma and Aunti Jane’s high-carb-high-fat dinners. Eat. Eat. Eat. Who wants to say no to any of this? Typically, no one who is submerged in the happy holiday spirit of friends and family gatherings wants […]

The Difference Between Hemp And Pot (Marijuana)

We are witnessing a revolution today – there are lots of changes infiltrating our lives. How we handle them is the key. It’s best to assume that most changes are good, but some are not, and some can be scary because we aren’t given enough good information to understand them correctly. Life on this amazing planet is ever-changing. Think about this: if life on Earth doesn’t change, […]

Give Your Body A Break – Take A Multi-Vitamin

A common question I am often asked is “If I eat right, why do I need to take a multi-vitamin?” Logical thought. In today’s world, though, we need to give our bodies a break, and that means that we are making sure we are providing all the essential nutrients and trace elements we need to fight pollution, […]

Follow Your Healthy Instincts

I’m writing this on Mother’s Day – a western tradition where we take a day to reflect on our moms. One thing that stands out when I think of “mothers” is instinct. All mothers have a natural instinct that is built into our DNA to protect our offspring – this applies to everything. Consider a mother duck […]

The #1 Thing I Do To Stay Healthy

I have been in the health and wellness business for decades. Actually, I’d say that I was born holistic. As a young kid, I’d never let my mom know if I didn’t feel well; I’d just let my body deal with it on its own. I still do. I rarely get sick, though. My mom […]

Why Slowing Down Is Good For Your Health

Most people today are on the go-go-go. So many people around the world are stuck in “5th gear”, and there is little time to down-shift. Slowing down – relaxing – is critical to good health; it is important to take time every day to unwind, to be quiet, and undisturbed. Here are some important steps you can take for your health’s […]

Keep It Real – Buy Local

Do you remember selling home-made lemonade as a kid? While your mom or dad helped you make a pitcher of fresh-squeezed lemons sweetened with sugar, your “business partner” was setting up a rickety folding table in the front yard, and making signs. I wonder how many of these kids (including you and me) wound up […]

Open Your Mind To Modern Health, And Other Stuff

Do you consider yourself an open-minded person? Are you willing to open your mind to new ideas, or to opinions that you don’t agree with? How do you handle others who are different from you? I’ve observed that most people in the natural/alternative health arena are fairly open-minded, and most are willing to work alongside those whom they disagree with. Open-minded […]

Challenging The Zika Virus – Have We Messed In Our Nest?

There are many points about the Zika virus that have raised some red flags, but when the President of Colombia announced that many of its country’s citizens were infected with Zika, yet there was not a single case of microcephaly, the red flag turned into a big red stop sign. It’s time to do some homework, and to […]

Are You Asleep At The Wheel – Wake Up And Shift Gears To Healthier Food And Free Water

All of us are feeling the pinch of rising food prices these days, and we can’t seem to successfully stop chemically altered, GMO foods from taking over our food supply. Now, a new concern is rising – the shortage of clean drinking water. It is overwhelming when you think about it, especially if you live in Southern California where city […]
