Cancer is the second-leading cause of death in the United States and was responsible for almost 600,000 deaths in 2017. Sadly, I don't think many of us haven't been affected by this horrendous disease in some way; whether through a personal diagnosis or the loss of a loved one. And while there are several ways to treat and beat cancer naturally, the best way to fight cancer is to prevent it from developing in the first place.

When we look at the diseases that plague our society — arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) — we see that long-term lifestyle changes are needed. What might not be as obvious is the common denominator tied to all of them and more: inflammation is at the root of most diseases.

By addressing the inflammation with anti-inflammatory foods, not only can the symptoms o...

DIETARY FAT:

Is it good or bad?

THE ANSWER:

Both. You see, not all fats are created equal.

The Skinny on Fats


Heavily processed, hydrogenated “trans” fats used in prepared, packaged foods can be extremely damaging to the body. They can compromise the cardiovascular system, immune system, and contribute to behavior problems. They can also lead to weight gain, skin breakouts, high blood pressure, and liver strain.

That said, our bodi...

Well, this certainly is not a post I ever thought I'd write. EVER.  But, it seems that my self-professed "health geek" journey has definitely taken a walk on the unexpected dark (and creepy crawly) side.  As a result, I feel that I must share a DISCLAIMER:

The information that you are about to read cannot be unknown and is not for the faint of heart. 

It all started quite innocently; a juice detox at a yoga retreat designed...

Knock on wood, I'm very healthy today.  However, my journey to optimal wellness has been a slow and steady uphill climb.  In what now feels like a former life,  I was slightly overweight, struggling with thyroid issues, and just plain unhappy and unfulfilled. 

Thanks to yoga, meditation, and a whole foods plant-based diet, all that has changed.  Flash forward several years and a lot of lifestyle change...

As the owner of a therapeutically-oriented yoga studio, I encounter people every day who are using yoga and meditation as an alternative and holistic treatment to help them ease stress, alleviate symptoms, decrease pain, calm their nervous system, and just feel better! As a vegan of 8 years and a holistic health coach, I am passionate about using plants/food as medicine after experiencing and observing immense health benefits...

Spring is upon us!!!  If you're like me, the first hint of a 80+ degree day, even if its just a tease, makes me immediately want to pull out the flip flops.  But wait......the bears aren't the only thing that's been hibernating all winter.  My toes are about the come out of hiding after a winter of slumber and a pedicure is in serious order! 

If you love a pretty painted toe like I do and are accustomed to engag...

Even if you're not a fan, after reading the Center for Disease Control (CDC) statistics shared in Part I, you gotta admit that Britney Spears did hit the nail on the head when she melodically referred to the "poison paradise" in which we reside.  The number of individuals with unsafe levels of heavy metals in their bodies is rising.  In fact, the CDC estimates that nearly half a million young children have dangerously elevated...

Even before Britney Spears sang about toxic relationships, it was no secret that we’re exposed to a huge number of toxic chemicals in our home environment on a daily basis. Between the pollution in our air, the contaminants in our water, the pesticides in our food, and the cocktail of chemicals in our products, our bodies are barraged by toxins day in and day out.

These toxins aren’t just being washed off or rinsed away, they a...
