First of all, thank you to my readers for all the encouraging messages regarding my new 2017 column in Total Health Magazine. I've been privileged to be a writer for this publication for over ten years reporting on the latest natural health news. After many requests, I began a new monthly column combining recipes, tidbits about the history of the ingredients, the health benefit of each ingredient, and a glimpse into my adventures in my new home base in South America. Last year I relocated my Health Sciences/Research/Publishing division of the Institute for Wholistic Rejuvenation to the high Andes of... Continue reading

The Blind Truths… Every 7 minutes someone in the United States becomes blind or significantly vision impaired. Vision loss tends to strike later in life, specifically after age 60. Nearly one-quarter of those over age 80 are blind or vision impaired and they are the fastest growing segment of our population. Americans with blindness, low vision, or age-related eye disease is expected to grow by nearly one-third – to 50 million+ – by 2020. Vision loss poses a very serious challenge to those who would otherwise remain part of a productive work force beyond age 65. Currently, lost productivity because... Continue reading

Spending time in Ecuador I’ve come to appreciate SO much that we in the U.S. take for granted. One specific thing is my withdrawal from white sweet potatoes because they are not commonly grown or used here, YET, but rather they grow several varieties of sweet potatoes that in the U.S. we often refer to as yams. Necessity is the mother of invention and I have a new favorite I discovered that taste to me just like fried hash browns cubed and they’re delicious, healthy, and so satisfying especially when we’re avoiding the genre of nightshade foods that we know...

Many of you that follow my blogs and work know I was a victim of chronic insomnia after my much written about accident many years ago. I struggled, as do most of my clients, with not being able to get to sleep or stay asleep, despite using every natural aid I could get my hands on (and there were dozens). One thing that I didn’t try until recently is adding specific plants to the bedroom, and I had studied their health-enhancing effect...so why not, after all I use and recommend pure essential oils extensively but being the health detective that...

When working with clients who are victims of emotional imbalances that include, but are limited to, anxiety, panic, and depression, we work together to help them balance Wholistically: body, mind and spirit. Science has demonstrated the importance of cultivating a healthy intestinal ecology known as the – microbiota – those health-enhancing microorganisms in our digestive health - critical inhabitants to achieve wellness. Research has now validated that the bacteria in your gut can directly affect your behavior, emotions and everything from the ability to lose excess weight to our immune responses. This might be surprising for many, however it’s a... Continue reading

Thank you to those of you who joined us for my presentation of the importance of Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA). So many of you asked to have it recorded, both the screen-sharing and the voice, that we did. We’re still working on refining the quality but the end result was surprising clear. NOW, you don’t have to schedule time out of your busy lives to educate yourself on what your hair sample shows as the “invisible BLUEPRINT” of what’s going on in your body – both nutrient values and toxic metals and their ratios to one another. If you,... Continue reading

Knowing and monitoring your urine pH (potential hydrogen) is vital to good health. A pH level that is below the healthy range means your body is not doing a good job of ridding your system of acid, therefore, creating the perfect breeding ground for health-depleting microorganisms to flourish like viruses, bacteria, yeast, fungus’ and, yes, cancer cells. The following are common symptoms that indicate your body is too acidic: Inability to lose excess weight – regardless of dieting or exercise. This occurs because excess waste product in the form of acid stay stored within the body. It is not being... Continue reading

As I counsel thousands worldwide I find more and more that deficiencies are manifesting that I didn’t observe over 30 years ago when I began private practice in natural health. It is my belief this has to do with current levels of daily prolonged stress and just as important is what we eat and are exposed to environmentally. Because of these discoveries and my clinical observations , I now perform a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) on most of my new clients who book a full consultation, at no additional charge. This allows me to examine the individual “invisible blueprint”... Continue reading

Daily I'm asked what health "tools" can be used to help identify some of the underlying causes of our symptoms caused by "invisible" imbalances that lead to health-depleting dis-orders.

If you, like me, love rice (I especially love Indian Basmati) but avoid it because of it being so high in carbs and thus raises my fasting blood sugar exponentially, have I got great news for you! First, let’s look at rice facts:1 cup of rice equals about 200 calories; most of those calories come in the form of starch, which directly converts to sugar and then to body fat; Rice is a digestible starch – it takes little time to digest and therefore turns quickly into sugar and then fat; Resistant starches – this kind take the body a...

Since one of my specialties is counseling clients regarding intestinal disorders, specifically colon health, an interesting subject arose recently that set me to wondering how many of us really know the history of toilet paper…so…the health detective in me went to work and here it is, your chuckle for the day… Yes, as hard to believe as it may be for those of you that know me personally, I did camp as a kid with my parents and grandparents. Anyone who’s done so knows that necessity is the mother of invention and things like dry leaves, twigs and rags come... Continue reading

I’m often asked to define various flours, which are gluten-free, how they’re made, and how best used…you asked, here it is in brief: Brown Rice Flour (gluten-free): Has the closest structure-building properties to white rice flour and a slight graininess with a toasty caramel-type flavor. Can be used as a thickener that contains less carbohydrates for instance in gravies, sauces, etc. Has shown less effect on blood sugar levels for diabetics. White Rice Flour (gluten-free): Made from rice that had the bran removed from the grain. Mostly used when needed for cakes that are fine-crumbed or silky puddings or pies.... Continue reading

My patients with hypothyroidism keep asking about stories they’ve heard in the news or seen on-line about the effects of certain foods on their thyroid health. This article hopes to separate fact from fiction with a sprinkling of common sense rather than all or nothing. To enlarge graphic below click on photo. Yes, foods containing goitrogens, compounds that make it more difficult for the thyroid gland to create its hormones are not advised with thyroid dysfunction. However, reports that tell you to completely avoid foods that can be healthy are prophesizing the all or nothing approach, which in my experience... Continue reading

I know what you’re thinking, I couldn’t believe it either when I read the research but I must admit it IS compelling and so I tried it. I don’t recommend, within reason, what I don’t first do myself and it was easy and no taste when I placed into my green smoothie protein shake along with my natural sweetener, Stevia. I love avocados, I was raised in So. California on a large property that had over a dozen mature trees. As kids we’d walk home from school and pick one off the tree, peel and eat like you’d eat a...
