It seems like it just went from summer to winter here in Oklahoma, and the minute Halloween was over, Thanksgiving arrived. I don’t know about you, but as much as I love this time of year, it can be pretty stressful. When there’s so much on our to-do lists, things like self care get pushed […]
I recently tried my first float tank and loved it so much, I wanted to share my experience. I first heard about float tanks/sensory deprivation several years ago when a massage therapist recommended I try it (the reason being I couldn’t relax and she didn’t want to work with me anymore). I didn’t take her […]
In this post, I share some tips for a healthy brain from the recent Broken Brain docuseries. The topic was of particular interest to me as I’ve been working on trying to fix my brain for the past couple of years after being exposed to toxic mold. Fortunately, I’m improving, but my memory could be […]
When people ask me what supplements I’m taking, I’m usually hesitant to say, since everyone’s different and has different nutritional needs. I’m not a doctor, but I’ll share some of the basic supplements for health that I take that most people can benefit from taking. However, I believe it’s always best to address lifestyle first […]
Yolanda Hadid writes about her battle with Lyme Disease in her book Believe Me: My Battle with the Invisible Disability of Lyme Disease to help bring awareness about Lyme (a tick-borne illness), which is becoming epidemic and is poorly understood by conventional medicine. Yolanda goes from being a TV star of The Real Housewives of […]
Taking a few minutes out of your day for simple self care practices and to relax is so important. When you don’t take time for yourself, your life can start to feel like a treadmill of all work. Try scheduling time for you into your week and you will feel the difference in your levels […]
I love my afternoon nap and am fortunate that I’m able to take one most afternoons, usually right after lunch, as that’s when I start feeling tired. I usually wake up feeling more energized and don’t feel as sleepy in the evenings. It turns out there are lots of benefits to taking an afternoon nap […]
Smoothies can be a quick and convenient way to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your diet every day and are especially great after a workout or for people with gut issues who have a hard time absorbing nutrients. While I’m more of a fan of eating whole, nutrient-rich foods rather than liquid meals, smoothies […]
If you’re like me, you probably don’t like going to the dentist much, and when you go for your dental check up, you’re relieved when you’re told you don’t need to get any work done. You probably don’t think about the treatments you’ve had in the past or whether the materials placed in your mouth […]
I’ve noticed a big difference in my skin, hair and nails since I started supplementing collagen, and I’m always looking for more ways to incorporate more collagen into my diet. So what is collagen exactly and how can we get more of it? Here’s a brief explanation of what collagen is, plus some ways […]
Biohacking is becoming hugely popular, thanks to the Internet. People now have access to vast amounts of information, experts, and the latest science, which enables them to to take charge of their own health like never before. Many of them call themselves “biohackers.” If you’re not familiar with the term “biohacking,” Dave Asprey, one of the […]
Eating healthy when you’re traveling isn’t always easy, but with a little planning ahead of time, you can keep to your health goals and not be stuck either being hungry or eating bad food because that’s all there is available. It’s worth taking a little extra effort to eat healthy away from home because you’ll […]
Did you know we all have a unique energy vibration and it’s possible to raise your vibration and attract positive things into your life by giving off positive energy? We have an electromagnetic field around us that can be disrupted by things in our environment. The good news is there are simple things we can […]
It’s time to get in shape for summer! Spring is here which means swimsuit season is right around the corner. It’s time to put away our heavy, baggy winter clothes and start thinking about the beach, sitting by the pool, and spending time outdoors. Many of us would rather not think about wearing shorts […]
If you’re like me, you want younger looking skin and have spent a lot of money over the years on anti-aging skin care products that promise younger looking skin but ultimately don’t deliver. You’ve probably learned for yourself that no cream will reverse the aging process. Marketers are doing a great job convincing us […]
Unfortunately, aging is inevitable, but why age faster than you have to? Is it just due to genetics that some people seem age well and others seem old before their time? I don’t know about you but I’m interested in finding out how to turn the clock back. I want to live a long happy, […]
You’ve probably heard about “gluten free” and are wondering if it’s just the latest craze. There’s a lot of conflicting advice about whether to go gluten free or not, which I will talk about in this post. Unfortunately, a lot of the stuff you buy at the grocery store labeled “gluten free” is essentially […]
The “Paleo” diet has become popular because it’s based on the way our ancestors ate, but there’s no one diet that’s best for everyone as we’re all different. Some people need lots of animal protein while others do better on a plant-based diet. The key is to listen to your body and pay attention to […]
If you’re not familiar with Bulletproof™, it’s one of the leading companies specializing in human performance. Dave Asprey, the founder and CEO of Bulletproof, has an interesting story: he’s a Silicon Valley investor and technology entrepreneur who used to weigh over 300 lbs; he spent a lot time and over $300,000 “biohacking” his biology (basically […]
I recently got back from the 2016 Bulletproof Biohacking Conference in Pasadena, CA, September 23-25, and it was even bigger and better than last year’s conference. I haven’t heard the official attendee count but about 3,000 people were expected. It was a fun, party-like atmosphere, and, as always, free Bulletproof® coffee was flowing nonstop. I […]
Imagine your life if you could no longer spend time in the places you love to go, like the mall, theater, and restaurants. Or how your life would be if you lost your friends, family, income, and career? Or if you could not find a house to live in that you could tolerate and ended […]
You’ve probably been hearing a lot about the “microbiome” lately, and it’s worth exploring since it’s a new paradigm that’s likely to change how medicine is practiced. For those of you not familiar with the microbiome, one definition is “the totality of microorganisms and their collective genetic material present in or on the human body […]
