You’d Better ‘B-lieve’ you need your B Vitamins!

B vitamins are sometimes called the energy vitamins, since they help put a spring in your step and play an important role in maintaining your energy levels. In fact, they play such a key role that perhaps they should also be called the “Brisk, Bouncy, and Bright” vitamins!  In fact, there are eight different kinds of B vitamins, and each one has its own distinct job. How do B Vitamins Help? These vitamins work as a carefully orchestrated team. Together they play an important role in: Regulating moodsReducing stressImproving cognitive performanceContributing to cardiovascular healthLowering blood pressure Protecting and Absorbing Your B Vitamins A healthy diet should provide adequate amounts of each B vitamin. However, because they’re water-soluble vitamins, they aren’t stored in your body and are eliminated when you pee. That means you must replace them every day. It...

Candida: Like me, it LOVES sugar!

Last year I embarked on a short Candida cleanse (about a month).  I provided information along the way, but I though a more in-depth article might provide more answers.  I do plan on continuing my cleanse, but I’ve decided to wait until it’s a bit warmer; it’s difficult to do any kind of detox cleanse in the winter, especially during one as cold as the one we’ve had!!  White coating on your tongue, mysterious skin rashes, bloating, constipation and you’re always ready to eat something sweet? You could be suffering from Candida overgrowth. What is Candida Albicans? Candida albicans is the most common kind of yeast that co-exists with humans. Under optimal conditions, candida plays a valuable role in our digestive systems, since we need small amounts of candida in our mouths and throughout our digestive system in order...

Top 10 Tips for Healthy Holidays

Are you enjoying the final stretch of 2018? For many, it’s a fantastic and fun time of the year. Unfortunately, it’s also a difficult period for maintaining healthy habits. Check out my list of the top 10 ways to stay healthy and happy over the holiday season.  Reframe your holiday expectations. Consider this: If you think of the holidays as an exhausting test of your endurance and holiday treats as evil temptations to be resisted with all available willpower, how will your body react? That might be a bit of an exaggeration, but many people come into the clinic at this time of the year showing signs of anxiety and tension. In fact, one study found that 90 percent of adults feel stressed over the...

Food Intolerance: What You Need to Know

You’re careful about your health. You do your best to eat well, and you pay attention to the ways that your diet affects your energy levels. But something seems off. You’re experiencing annoying symptoms that you can’t explain. You’re often gassy and bloated, your skin may not be clear and glowing anymore, you may be ready for a nap after a meal and you wish you could remember where you put your keys. Why does your memory feel so foggy? These issues are frustrating (and often embarrassing). They’re also very common. Many patients come to see me with healthy lifestyles, but are baffled by continuing digestive issues, mysterious rashes, and low energy levels. If this sounds familiar, it may be time to take a good look...

Organic Food is Better for you!

Organic Food – Is it worth the extra cost?

How would you describe “organic food” quickly in three words or less? Good for you? More expensive? Right on both counts. We often hear in broad terms about how organic food is good for you and good for the environment, and although we want to do the right thing for our bodies and our planet, the premium prices may not seem worth it. Walk into any grocery store, and you’ll see how organic food is priced significantly higher than conventional produce. Sometimes nearly double! So, why is that? Unlike conventional farming, which uses synthetic fertilizers to boost crops with an instant punch of nutrients, organic foods are fertilized by organic matter. The difference is that compost and animal manure slowly build the soil, releasing their nutrients naturally...

It’s all in your Gut!

There’s a lot to talk about when it comes to your gut. And that’s for good reason. While we’re still learning a lot about how the interaction between the digestive system and the rest of the body works, we do know that the delicate balance of intestinal flora in your digestive system can affect the body’s ability to to perform the critical functions that affect our overall health, such as: Absorbing and producing vitamins and minerals Regulating hormones Digesting effectively Responding to the immune system, and Eliminating toxins For those of us who already suffer from gastrointestinal or bowel disorders such as IBS, Celiac disease, or leaky gut syndrome, the link between gut and mental health become more pronounced. And, our gastrointestinal (GI) health even be...
