A national gathering not to be missed "I think I've been waiting for Slow Money my entire life. Woody Tasch is a hero for our times." -Kathleen Slattery-Moschkau From the day we caught wind of Slow Money, we’ve been a big supporter of this organization. Last year Kathleen attended their very first National Gathering, interviewed the founder Woody Tasch and our team helped spread the word any way we could. So we’re super excited to announce that we’re a proud media partner of the Second National Gathering which is being held at the beautiful grounds of Shelburne Farms in Vermont... Continue reading

Choose health over aesthetics Posted by Cari @ The Kathleen Show “You’re being a better neighbor by NOT putting chemicals on your lawn.” –Dr. Claire Gervais Last week it was about how to go organic with your lawn. This week we’re addressing why. Dr. Claire Gervais, a family physician on faculty at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, explains why eliminating pesticides from our lawn care routine is critical to our health. Listen to her interview with Kathleen: And if you missed it, here’s part one on organic lawn care (how to go organic) with horticulturist... Continue reading

A philosophical take on prevention. This week’s Prevention Not Prescriptions guest blogger is psychiatrist, professor and author, Bradley Lewis, MD, PhD. The most compelling thing I learned about healthcare last year is that above all else it’s COMPLICATED! The year long debate showed that anything you can say about healthcare has another side, a mitigating issue, an unconsidered side effect. Remarkably, this is true even with the idea of preventative health. Increasingly, prevention is moving from the margins of healthcare to take a center stage. It was certainly one of the things that Obama called for in his campaign, and... Continue reading

A beautiful yard without the risks Posted by Cari @ The Kathleen Show “A couple weeds in your lawn is not a crisis.” – Dr. Astrid Newenhouse Summer weather is starting to tease us and it’s likely that your lawn mower has replaced the snow blower in the garage. But that means people are about to start piling on chemicals and pesticides so they can have beautiful lawns in a few short weeks. But what if we could have a great lawn without the risks? According to Dr. Astrid Newenhouse we can have all that and then some. Listen to... Continue reading

Marion Nestle's take on the real food reality show This week’s Prevention Not Prescriptions guest blogger is Marion Nestle, nutrition expert and author of Food Politics. I’m not much of a TV-watcher but from what I’ve been hearing about Jamie Oliver’s new series, I thought I had best take a look. Don’t miss it. Get your kids to watch it with you. Oliver, in case you haven’t been paying attention, went to Huntington, West Virginia (ostensibly the obesity capital of the world), TV crew in hand, to reform the town’s school lunch program. Take a deep breath. Try not to... Continue reading

(Or...would you care for a jelly doughnut?) This week’s Prevention Not Prescriptions guest blogger is Trisha Torrey, patient advocate and author of You Bet Your Life! The 10 Mistakes Every Patient Makes. What exactly is prevention? Most of us would agree that we want to live as long as possible, as healthy as possible. Prevention, then, becomes a means to achieve that goal. We do preventive things – or we don’t do non-preventive things – to maximize our quality and quantity of life. We eat healthy foods – or we avoid unhealthy foods. We don’t smoke. We drink alcohol in... Continue reading

Filmmaker Gene Rosow talks Dirt! Posted by Cari @ The Kathleen Show “Some of the best organic farmers and gardeners say we don’t grow food, we grow soil…we feed the soil, the soil feeds us.” –Gene Rosow We know the importance of planting trees, conserving water, going organic…but there’s another crucial element to think about. Yes, we’re talking dirt. The health and availability of our soil affects the health and availability of our food. And as filmmaker Gene Rosow depicts in his Sundance award-winning documentary Dirt!, we are quickly putting it at risk through industrial agriculture, pesticides, monocrops and urban...

Beyond the press release... Practice, practice, practice. Just because you have a product or service to promote, doesn't mean you're good at doing it. A PR person can only get you so far. Do not walk into an interview unprepared. Know your message in and out and be able to get your point across as quickly as possible (think good sound bites or quotes). Because if there's anything that's worse than a bad press release it's a bad interview. And you may not get a second chance.

Save your skin…naturally Posted by Cari @ The Kathleen Show Is it just us, or does talk about hormones seem to be creeping up in every aspect of our health these days? On a recent show Captain Charles Moore talked about how plastics in our ocean are disrupting and distorting hormones in fish leading to big health hazards for humans. Then, Dr. Michael Aziz came on the show to address how our food choices can wreak hormonal havoc on our bodies—causing obesity, diabetes and cancer. And most recently, Dr. Alan Dattner, a holistic dermatologist, talked to Kathleen about how hormones... Continue reading

What you need to know about caring for your furry family members… Posted by Cari @ The Kathleen Show “The stuff that gets thrown away from the meat plants for human consumption usually ends up in the dog food.” –Nadine M. Rosin Nadine M. Rosin’s dog, Buttons, was diagnosed with cancer at eight years old and was given six weeks to live. Through detox and diet, she helped Buttons beat cancer and live 19 long, happy years. In her interview with Kathleen, Nadine, now an author and holistic pet care consultant, talks about how commercial pet food (if you can... Continue reading

A Titanic Health Care Plan This week’s Prevention Not Prescriptions guest blogger is Neal Barnard, M.D., a nutrition researcher and president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. The luxury cruise ship was outfitted with a gymnasium, a squash court, a Turkish bath, and an on-board swimming pool, justifying the ticket price of $4,350 for first class passage. What it did not have was a hull capable of withstanding an iceberg. And on April 14, 1912, the Titanic went down. The health care reforms proposed by the administration and in Congress all aim to provide basic health care for the... Continue reading

One of our listeners takes the challenge Posted by Cari @ The Kathleen Show We love it when listeners share their stories with us. And recently we had Christine Pierangeli on the air to talk about how the show got her fired up to make some changes in her life. Christine had just heard the podcast of Kathleen’s interview with best-selling author Kathy Freston (from about a year ago) and got turned on to her 21-day Quantum Wellness Cleanse—no caffeine, no animal products, no gluten, no caffeine and no sugar. She called into the show on day 15 to report... Continue reading

Thanks for chiming in Kat...couldn't agree more. Sleep is invaluable to our health. And hey, we'd love to add a category on this topic if we had folks who were writing about it. Sounds like you might need to be our Prevention Not Prescriptions sleep blogger. Maybe?

A safer and more gorgeous approach to beauty This week’s Prevention Not Prescriptions guest blogger is Gail Konop Baker, author of "Cancer is a Bitch". I blasted into my 40’s strong and invincible. I ran, I practiced yoga, I kayaked, I ate a mostly organic vegetarian diet. I rarely got sick, no aches, no pains. I was a person others consulted for health and anti-aging tips. So it totally messed with my psyche when, at the age of 45, I was diagnosed with early breast cancer. Luckily, it was caught so early that I didn’t need chemo or radiation. Four... Continue reading

Changes we can demand immediately This week’s Prevention Not Prescriptions guest blog is by Dr. Andrew Weil, bestselling author and pioneer in integrative medicine.

We currently have an expensive system that is not making people well. While there has been tremendous debate over access and payment, there has been less focus on the content... Continue reading

Has anybody checked out Tara Stiles' yoga video at the end of her guest post yet? A perfect way to start your day and only 7-minutes long. We can all sneak that in, can't we? And dang, I want to practice where she practices...I love the lighting in that room.

It really is scary that kids today likely won't outlive their parents unless we start turning things around. So glad the administration is making this a priority.

Your health is hanging in the balance. Posted by Cari @ The Kathleen Show “The problem is that we’re eating the wrong kinds of foods that we’re told are healthy, but they’re not…and all those things are wreaking havoc.” ~Dr. Michael Aziz The key to maintaining a healthy weight and optimal health? Hormones. They can turn on our internal fountain of youth, deliver better than Viagra, act more powerfully than Prozac, and prove more effective than gastric bypass surgery. Or, they can do the opposite. In his interview with Kathleen, Dr. Michael Aziz, the author of The Perfect 10 Diet... Continue reading

How to teach your children about money Posted by Cari @ The Kathleen Show “There’s a big machine out there, it’s called the consumer credit industry. They’re preparing our children right now to be the future debtors of America.” ~Mary Hunt The fastest growing segment of people now filing for bankruptcy is kids—they're college students under the age of 25. Are you confident that you’re teaching your children what they need to know to handle money and grow up to be financially responsible and financially independent adults? Or are you unwittingly passing on your own bad money habits and setting... Continue reading

The Michael Pollan Food Rules are getting a ton of attention today...definitely check them out. Also, I have to say that Lisa's heart healthy salmon with orange sauce recipe looks delicious! Can't wait to try that one out. And great message in Dr. Joe's piece...really for anybody who's having a bad day, week or even month. I personally turn to yoga when I'm having a rough time (hence the picture I chose). What are your favorite messages/posts this week?

I'm a big fan of #19. I think that's such an important rule to have in the back of your head as you push your cart through the grocery store. It also sounds like I need to learn how to make my own ice cream at home. Ha!

This week's Prevention Not Prescriptions guest blogger is Michael Pollan. He gave us a sneak peek of his latest book Food Rules: An Eater's Manual. What follows is an “appetizer” of the sixty-four food rules he’s urging everyone to live by… #11 Avoid foods you see advertised on television. Food marketers are ingenious at turning criticisms of their products—and rules like these—into new ways to sell slightly different versions of the same processed foods: They simply reformulate (to be low-fat, have no HFCS or transfats, or to contain fewer ingredients) and then boast about their implied healthfulness, whether the boast...
