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?”

After the Cleanse

Hello.  How many of you out there have ever done a detox?  How many of you have ever put thought into the detox BEFORE you began?  I mean a well thought out “What are my intentions going into this?”, “What will I be doing differently once I am done to stay feeling as fabulous asContinue reading “After the Cleanse”

When does the second half of your life begin?  When you are 50?  When you become an ‘Empty Nester”?  When you retire?   Do you have to wait to be “older” in order for the second half of your life to begin?

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”

A Little Lost?

Hey there!  How’s it going?  I read an article a little bit ago, and it reaffirmed something I all ready knew and a bet you do too.  Unfortunately, I did not write the name of the article or the author (something that I am sure the author would appreciate and I need to be inContinue reading “A Little Lost?”

Are We Setting Ourselves Up for Illness?

Hi There!!!  I was listening to Duke and The Doctor the other day, and Dr. McBarron was talking about cold sores, and the connection with corn. Corn is very high in argenine.  Argenine is buddies with the Herpes virus, therefore contributing to the eruption of cold sores.  Argenine suppresses Lysine, which retards virus growth/boosts the immune system.  Here is a great link that I foundContinue reading “Are We Setting Ourselves Up for Illness?”

Foods and Moods

That’s a mouthful isn’t it?  I was up the other night flipping through channels, and it is amazing how the number of  food commercials increases as the evening progresses.  Not only that, but also how they change from healthy to bingey foods.  Which brings me to my topic du jour – Foods and Moods.  SimilarContinue reading “Foods and Moods”

How Long Are You Going to Sit Around And Wait?

I have just hit my limit again.  I say again, because we have so many of them.   We create our own limits.  And we can also shatter that ceiling any time we want to.  I bet you didn’t know that.  Or maybe you didn’t want to. See, Iv’e been doing a large amount ofContinue reading “How Long Are You Going to Sit Around And Wait?”

How sweet is too sweet?

Hello.  This thought came to mind while I was preparing a presentation the other day.  Do you remember as a teenager or young adult (or maybe now), ordering your chips and queso, double cheeseburger with curly fries and a diet soft drink, to ‘cancel out the other calories you are ingesting’.  Or maybe also becauseContinue reading “How sweet is too sweet?”
