If you look up ADDRESS in the dictionary you’ll find – “To direct the efforts or attention of oneself” and “to begin to deal with.” My question to you is, “have you started to ADDRESS yourself?” Have you began to deal with yourself? Have you looked at your Attitude and mentality on life? Do you […]Read more "Are you ADDRESSING your health?"
The medical model is more of a “disease care” model. It doesn’t actually focus on improving health, but rather it tries to target specific diseases or symptoms and create some sort of relief, usually via pharmaceutical pills or surgery. The functional approach focuses on building health. Instead of treating each specific symptom, Functional medicine and […]Read more "Great Analogy of Our “Healthcare” system"
30 days. That’s the number. If you can’t go without something for 30 days then you’re probably addicted to it. This is of course relevant to those things in which we can essentially live without, i.e. water doesn’t count. But other things do count. Let’s begin with something obvious. Cigarettes – we all know of their […]Read more "Have you ever broken an addiction?"
As I learn more about the human body, biology and physiology and biochemistry, I am able to connect the dots between the different systems of the body more clearly. This has got me wondering, why doesn’t the allopathic medical approach follow the same principles of biology as nature? Each and every one of our systems […]Read more "Our Disjointed Medical System and Our Skin"
I just read an article that really hones in on how important getting special, functional nutrition tests (unfortunately not covered by insurance) is to your health and wellbeing. Even if you are completely free from symptoms, there can be problems. Find out how your body is functioning. Check out this article to understand why just […]Read more "Prevent Illness – Even with no symptoms you can still be in trouble"
Let’s take a look at stomach acid. Stomach acid is necessary for the digestion of proteins. The allopathic “symptom relief” model regularly prescribes antacids for people with acid reflux and heartburn which decrease stomach acid. Long term use of antacids has been shown to increase the incidences of osteoporosis and many other chronic health concerns. […]Read more "Stop treating symptoms. An example why the Allopathic approach is wrong and some philosophical insights"
Update: I no longer think that this is the best test to get to improve your health. And I also think that if you’re going to do food sensitivity testing you should get both this and the IgG test. Imagine you take a test that immediately shows you that every time you eat a tomato thousands of […]Read more "The Best Test to Improve Your Health (IMO)"
Hey so I was up really late the other night because my brain exploded with ideas and I thought of an awesome idea that will help people to clear their skin problems such as acne. You might not know this but I suffered from severe nodular cystic acne for a long time. I changed my diet, […]Read more "Awesome Idea For an Acne Program"
I have been making soup for years. In fact, a delicious soup called Brasco Broth has been a staple in my diet for over ten years. I would get the carrots, onions, garlic, celery, chicken, etc. and put it in a giant pot and simmer it for 12 to 24 hours. I would then debone and […]Read more "Bone Broth, aka Bone Stock and why it’s better than soup"
Listen. There are people who do really really well on the Paleo diet. There are people who do really really well on a vegetarian diet. There are people who do really really well on a vegan diet. Yes, I know that beans are hard to digest and contain lectins and phytates, but you know what? […]Read more "How to Know What Foods You Should Eat"
Right now I am taking the Functional Diagnostic Nutrition course to become a functional diagnostic nutritionist. The major component of the course is running functional lab work and using the results, along with the client or patient’s lifestyle (we never base our decisions solely off of test results), to uncover healing opportunities that are specific […]Read more "A Hugely Overlooked Reason to Run Labs"
500 calories from one food is different than 500 calories from another. Eating 500 calories of broccoli (which is a pretty hard task to accomplish) is vastly different than 500 calories from a cookie (not such a hard thing to do). The nutrients from the foods we eat effect us all the way down to […]Read more "FOOD IS INFORMATION! LET’S LEARN FROM OUR FOOD SENSITIVITIES"
I’ve studied a lot of diets, including raw, vegan, vegetarian, paleo, GAPS, SCD and others. I’ve done a lot of detoxes, including whole foods based detoxes, smoothie and juice cleanses, raw food detoxes and water fasts. And it is the last one that I would like to mention quickly today. In my studies what I’ve […]Read more "Something That All of the Diets Are Missing"
I just watched an interview from one of my favorite series, The Good Life Project. Firstly I need to say that doctor Aviva Romm’s story is amazing. She was brought up in the projects of New York and drove 2 hours to go to a special school that was for exceptional students. She did so […]Read more "The GoodLife Project: The Future of Medicine, The Mircobiome and Curious Mindset with Aviva Romm"
Our bodies are in a constant fight for survival. Every second, harmful bacteria, mold, fungus, yeast, chemicals, pathogens, parasites, viruses, pollen and allergens are causing our body to initiate and sustain what is known as an immune response. These threats contain little proteins on their surfaces which cause an immune response in our bodies. These […]Read more "My IgG Food Sensitivity Test"
