3 Easy Lifelong Health Habits You Can Start Right Now

At the beginning of the year we started a fitness challenge with my husband’s family. There were four daily metrics: a minimum step count, a water intake goal, a 20-minute workout, and no refined white sugar in any form—no fructose (combination of fructose and glucose), no fructose corn syrup, no brown sugar (made by adding […]

However, a great way to lure them into nature is giving them fun activities to do in the garden. There are many simple tasks they would enjoy that wouldn’t feel like boring chores. (If you […]

How to Supplement Positive Thinking

My friend Cheryl was recently diagnosed with cancer. She has undergone radiation treatment but is supplementing that with a boon of positive thinking. Cheryl sent me links to some podcasts and videos on the mind-body connection, and I listened to a doctor discuss how the power of positive thinking may be a factor in unexplained […]

It just GOT REAL:
Defeating the Monster of Immune Depression

For twenty years the entire raw milk community has been preaching about the immune system benefits of raw milk and raw dairy products. The FDA and CDC has suppressed us. Mainstream media has scorned us. Industry has done everything possible to make sure that raw milk is cut off in the markets, in the legislature, […]

The Party is Over—Time for Americans to Rebuild Their Health

I think it is important to see what is really happening in the real world of conscious people who know the critical importance of a healthy immune system and the gut biome. Clearly the FDA and CDC don’t. We all totally agree that social distancing and hand washing are important, but where is the CDC […]

The Safety of Modern Raw Milk

You will love this five-minute ABC News piece on Localish. Modern technology matched with pastures and the whole goodness of nature makes a great story. Raw milk is the first food of life for a reason. And it is not sterile! It builds immunity through gut biome biodiversity and the whole food that feeds the gut micro biome. The raw […]

Got Viruses? Get Raw Milk!

There are large, well-designed, peer-reviewed studies published in EU scientific journals showing that consumption of raw milk prevents colds. Colds are viruses! Every year the cold or flu virus is different, and our bodies adjust to the new threat, if our immune systems are healthy and strong.  These studies also show that raw milk consumers […]

Hashimoto’s:
A Wholistic Approach

I don’t ask myself, “Why is this happening to me?” Instead, I ask myself, “What is happening to me?” When my health was first compromised, I simply thought I’d been dealt the menopause from Hades. But now I know that my suffering was—and is—caused by Hashimoto’s disease. If I’d been given my diagnosis years ago, […]

Can Proper Diet and Supplementation Heal Your Back Pain?

You are what you eat—and so is your back. Back pain is on the rise. Experts estimate a whopping 80 percent of the population will experience back pain at some point in their lives. That’s bad news for those with back aches. Back pain may result from several factors, including injury, arthritis, or stress. Generally […]

The Two Most Important Tools for Health

As I’ve stated before, we need to do the following to stay healthy: move well, sleep well, eat well, and think well. This principle is loosely borrowed from Dr. James Chestnut, who was the first recipient of the Certified Chiropractic Wellness Lifestyle (CCWL) and whose book Live Right for Your Species Type is still the […]

Role of Chiropractic Adjustment in Pediatric Health Care

At the Erin Mills Optimum Health clinic in Mississauga, Ontario, we see many people, including children, seeking chiropractic adjustments to obtain relief for their neck and back pain. Chiropractic care can also correct spinal misalignment issues associated with serious nervous system and spinal problems if left untreated. Children, especially those who suffer from chronic health […]

Chiropractic Care for Kids

With a focus on proper spinal function, chiropractic care ensures that your nervous system communicates as it should. The brain continuously talks to the body through the spinal cord (which is protected by the spine). Restrictions in spinal movement, called subluxations, cause disturbance to this communication, creating dysfunction and dis-ease in the body. Chiropractors are […]

Do Germs Make Us Sick?

We’ve all been there—the fever, the sinus drainage, the congestion, the aches and pains. But nobody wants to be sick! Darn those nasty germs…it’s all their fault! Or is it? You might be surprised to learn that germs are everywhere. If you swab your shoes or purse, wipe it on a petri dish, and let […]

Health Isn’t Complicated

Parents, listen up! It’s no fun to watch your child deal with an illness—but be sure to think before you act. First, ask yourself: what is the condition, and what are the symptoms? Fever, sinus drainage, congestion, and lethargy are all symptoms that trigger the immune system to employ its defense mechanisms. They are perfectly […]

Multivitamins:
The Unicorn Supplement

I remember my health class professor talking about the need for vitamin supplements back when I was in college many years ago. We were in the vitamin and mineral section of our coursework, learning about the different nutrients the body needs, and the professor explained that we can’t get all of these nutrients from our […]

The Surprising Health Benefits of Extreme Sports

Did you know that doing extreme sports can be extremely healthy? Most of us understand that exercise in general is great for our health, but extreme sports are different from everyday  sports and workouts.

Intro to Human Foods for Dogs

Who among us has never snuck our pet a table scrap or two during dinner? When you open a bag of chips, your dog likely comes running, even from the other side of the house—and then those sad eyes convince you to share your snack with them. Sharing your food with your pup might feel […]

The Importance of Balance in Your Life

One lesson I’ve come to learn in this wild adventure of adulthood is the immense importance of balance in my life. And no, I don’t mean being able to balance doing crane pose with a ball on top of my head (though that would still be an impressive feat). I mean balance between the different […]

Good Posture Leads to a Productive Work Day

If you have good posture (the word is from the Latin, ponere), it simply means that your spine is healthy or neutral, and that the three natural curves of the spine are present. Human posture refers to the carriage of the body as a whole, especially regarding the proper positioning of the limbs. These days, […]

Keto Macros:
What They Are and How to Calculate Yours

“Keto macros” is one of the most buzz-worthy terms thrown around the keto community. From “hitting your keto macros” and “staying within your macros” to “fitting your macros” and “finding the right macros,” it pops up again and again in the keto crowd.
