Is the Detox 360°™ Program Right For You?

Is the Detox 360°™ Program Right For You?

We’re inundated everyday with fad diets and the latest and greatest health claims to help you lose weight or avoid getting cancer. The scare tactics and claims are overwhelming, and it’s hard to know exactly what to do to even maintain health. The idea of cleansing or detoxing is very popular, and I must admit that I was even skeptical of Detox 360°™ when I was first introduced a few  years ago. Let me explain why I stand by this amazingly powerful cleanse and why I encourage you to do your research and see if this is the right cleanse program […]

Autism Awareness: How We Can Help

Autism Awareness: How We Can Help

In light of Autism Awareness Day, we’d like to highlight this very complex condition that is found in one out of every 68 children. Though the cause of autism is unknown, the practice of functional neurology is helping individuals on the Autism Spectrum everyday. Functional neurology is based on the premise of neuroplasticity, the nervous system’s ability to grow and change with the proper stimulation.  Autism Spectrum Disorders are characterized by accelerated left hemisphere development and an under-performing right hemisphere. This causes the individual to be very uneven in cognitive abilities, such as high verbal skills, but low scores on intelligence tests. Diagnostic […]

Being Heart Healthy Starts With Your Brain

There is a good reason why February is American Heart Month. Heart disease continues to be the number one cause of death, and Valentine’s Day lands right in the middle of the month. Combine those two and we have the perfect recipe for increasing heart health awareness this month. Heart disease is the cause of 25% of the deaths in America. 715,000 Americans will be diagnosed with heart disease each year, and 600,000 of us will die from heart attack. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart attacks, stroke and other cardiovascular disease cost the United States […]

Why Your Body Needs Magnesium

Do you suffer from muscle spasms, cramps, weakness, chronic pain, poor sleep, heart palpitations or are constantly getting sick? These are all symptoms of being magnesium-deficient. Consuming a diet rich in magnesium could help minimize symptoms and keep you feeling your best. There are six “macro-minerals” that the human body needs in large amounts to function normally, and magnesium is one of them. It is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body and is responsible for over 300 biochemical reactions.  All major organs need it to function normally, and the average American diet does not contain even 50% of […]

Can Surgery Prevent Cancer?

Can Surgery Prevent Cancer?

In a controversial move, Angelina Jolie announced yesterday that she had a double mastectomy, surgically removing both of her breasts even though she does not have breast cancer. She carries the BRCA1 gene, which supposedly predisposes women to developing cancer. In an op-ed piece she penned for the New York Times, Jolie revealed that doctors had estimated she had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer. While widely praised for her move, Jolie’s decision and the announcement of that decision weigh heavily on those of us in the medical field that prefer […]

Why Your Decision to Get a Flu Shot Should Be an Educated One

Why Your Decision to Get a Flu Shot Should Be an Educated One

Getting the flu shot is a hot topic for debate. I personally never have myself or my children injected with a flu shot because we maintain healthy immune systems with proper lifestyle habits. In addition to taking our lifestyles into consideration, I have researched the pros and cons of the flu vaccination, and have made an informed, educated decision regarding this topic. Many people feel pressured into getting vaccinated. You need to realize that YOU are in charge of how to handle YOUR healthcare. Please arm yourself with the best data to make flu vaccination decision for yourself. There are […]

Statin Drugs: Are They Causing More Harm Than Good?

Statin drugs – a class of medicines that are frequently used to lower blood cholesterol levels – have become a huge global industry, generating more than $29 billion each year. In the US, one in four people over the age of 45 is taking statins! They do lower LDL cholesterol levels, but there is controversy about high cholesterol levels being a contributing factor to heart disease. It took 20 years for the FDA to require labeling on these medications, informing the public that there are serious side effects, such as muscle pain and weakness, kidney failure and extreme cognitive issues, […]
