Can You Be Too Healthy?

I was listening to Dr. Garko on the radio the other morning, and his topic was ‘The Over-nourished Cell”.  It was quite interesting to hear someone talking about the research done that you can have too much nutrition in your body and that it can actually cause just as much damage to your health asContinue reading “Can You Be Too Healthy?”

Eating for Ethics vs. Eating for Health

I had a very interesting conversation with a colleague tonight.  It was about the choice of eating a plant based lifestyle and whether people will stick with it more for ethical reasons or for health reasons.  I was first introduced to plant based eating as a moral/religious choice when I was a child.  We hadContinue reading “Eating for Ethics vs. Eating for Health”

Pretty powerful words, aren’t they?  We all have our comfort zones and we like them!  Some of them are important for survival, some are feel good and others are not healthy.  I say that because when a comfort zone causes complacency, it’s no longer a comfort zone. I think you have probably all ready comeContinue reading “The Comfort Zone”
