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 […]

Functional Neurology Meets Fashion

Functional Neurology Meets Fashion

Unbeknownst to most people, our bodies give very subtle clues to how we’re handling almost any social situation. This is one of the most basic elements of the practice of functional neurology – how is your brain working to tell your body how it should behave. From stress to sadness, anger and joy, our brains submit triggers to the rest of our bodies, alerting us how to respond. Typical reactions include an increased heart rate, changes in body temperature and breathing, and even perspiration on our hands and feet. What’s truly fascinating is how these subtle involuntary mechanisms can be monitored and studied to help us determine […]

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 […]
