As a natural health professional for over 25 years, I’ve seen many clients who are interested in changing their diet to prevent heart attacks or stroke. And, studies show that a healthy diet can reduce the risk of dying from cardiovascular disease by nearly half. Even today it astounds me that so many people with heart disease are encouraged by their doctors and other health professionals to eat a diet that is simply not founded in research. A new, massive study by the United Nations Read more [...]

If you're a fan of fashion and music, there's no doubt your eyes were glued to the TV this weekend to watch the 2017 Billboard Music Awards. Stars walked the pink carpet dressed to the nines to celebrate big winners like Drake, Celine Dion, and more. While music undoubtedly stole the show, the exceptional outfits seen on some of our favorite celebrities were a close second. The warm Nevada temperatures brought out sheer gowns and cut-out jumpsuits from performers and presenters alike. Ahead, check Read more [...]

To refrigerate or not to refrigerate? That is the question for so many foods, like onions, soy sauce, eggs, tomatoes, butter, coffee and more. While onions, potatoes, vinegary condiments and coffee don’t need to be refrigerated (don’t refrigerate your coffee unless you want to deplete it of all its glory), there are a few foods you should always consider refrigerating. Here are 7 that might surprise you: Natural nut butters I know, it is so much harder to stir nut butters when Read more [...]

A 29-year-old Louisiana mom died of a pulmonary embolism one day after she gave birth to a healthy baby boy, and her partner says it happened “without warning.” Jean-Luc Montou recently announced on Facebook that his baby boy Julian was born and in the same post heartbreakingly revealed that his partner, Sarah Bertrand, “didn’t make it.”Montou later shared on a GoFundMe page set up for his family that nearly 24 hours after giving birth, Bertrand “died due to a pulmonary embolism that Read more [...]

Our relationship with food is complicated—and often a little confounding. Even the healthiest eaters are prone to occasional food transgressions—a dinner downed in front of the TV, a lunch wolfed down on the way to an appointment, a snack attack that sneaks up on us. As long as such lackluster eating experiences are the exception, and not the rule, they’re probably no cause for worry. But what about when the occasional “whoops!” becomes part of a more persistent pattern? Over Read more [...]

I love Sundays. I would argue they are my favourite day of the week, namely because I try not to plan much and instead just hang around the house with a cup of tea, a good book, my journal and of course, try out some new skincare.  This week was Oleum Vera, an organic, non-GMO, DIY skincare kit. Today was as little more exciting, as I finally got to try Oleum Vera’s DIY skincare system. Why is it exciting? Because it is DIY organic skincare. It comes with a fantastic set of ingredients Read more [...]

Fun little fact: Sometimes I just want to rip my shirt off during a workout. And I'm not talking about feeling so sexy and strong that my inner Hulk comes out (but if that's how you feel, by all means, do you). I'm talking about feeling like I'm drowning in my own sweat, and that the only way to get some relief is to shed that extra layer of fabric. GET OFF OF ME, SHIRT.As summer approaches, this take-it-all-off need is becoming a regular occurrence for me. Unfortunately, there's something about Read more [...]

Mother’s Day is not the easiest of holidays for me. I am childless by choice and have never been called “mom.” No human has ever said, “Happy Mother’s Day mom, I love you!” But can we be mothers to children that we didn’t give birth to or adopt, and to species other than humans? I am the single provider for two dogs, Sanchez and Gina. But, I usually think of them as my companion animals, not my children, even though others may see me as a crazy pet parent, with my children Read more [...]

Today I am super excited to talk Ayurveda with Uma oils. Keep reading for the Top 5 Ayurvedic practices for your natural beauty. In Ayurveda, India’s 5,000-year-old system of health and well-being, it is common knowledge that outer beauty is a reflection of our overall health. It teaches us that glowing skin truly comes from within and is a result of the way we care for ourselves rather than the potions we choose to use. Of course our favourite products can help to enhance our natural Read more [...]

Before I took up running, any moment of anxiety, panic, or depression seemed like something I needed to sprint through. I’ve lived with mental health disorders for 18 years, and I always felt that I needed to get through the difficult moments as quickly as possible. If I didn’t, I thought I’d be labeled “weak” or “crazy.”When I started running a little over two years ago, I approached it the same way: I’d start out as fast as I could, and I’d quickly exhaust myself and give up for Read more [...]

As an MD, I’ve watched too many of my colleagues yank out anti-depressant samples every time a patient starts to cry. So on behalf of physicians everywhere, let me apologize for our trigger-happy prescription-writing behavior. I don’t mean to diminish the pain someone who is depressed might experience. But tears are healthy. Sadness doesn’t always need treatment. And it’s important to remember that the pain muscle and the joy muscle are the same. If you can’t feel one, Read more [...]
