Prevention, Healing and Tips!

Posted by:

As we all know, this is Breast Cancer Awareness month. There is a ton of information out there and we are being brought to further awareness each and every day, especially this month. The onslaught of information to help and comfort, while well intentioned, can also bring feelings of fear, helplessness, memories of lost loved ones, and other emotions. I know – I’ve been there.

This month I would like to limit my part in the “information overload.” I am only ...

Fall Allergies — Dairy, Apples, Honey and Neti Pots, Oh My!

Posted by:

While autumn signals the beginning of allergies for some folks, others tend to suffer year round. Ragweed is the main irritant for my husband during the fall, starting in early August and running through mid-October. I’m one of the lucky ones who have year round sensitivities to dust and mold. Either way, allergies can leave one feeling tired, and just plain miserable.

While many of us with allergies have used over the counter and prescription medicines I’ve personally experienced their side ...

Naked as a Jaybird?

Posted by:

Deodorants vs. antiperspirants! A tricky, personal topic but certainly important when considering one’s daily hygiene!

And don’t we all seem to need it more now that the temps are rising and we are all a little “schweddy” these days 🙂 While we need a product that works, it’s also important to find one that doesn’t list ingredients that could potentially cause health issues down the road. And how about something for the active pre-teens in our lives that is also safe! ...

What’s YOUR Dosha?

Posted by:

Little did I know twenty years ago that an introductory visit to an Ayurvedic practitioner in Boston would help set me on a path of feeling better! At that session, I filled out a fairly comprehensive questionnaire about my dietary habits. I was feeling quite proud of myself in that I felt my answers would reveal a healthy lifestyle. I was eating tons of salads and juicing. My snacks mostly consisted of nibbling on raw veggies. Yet, I was dragging, ...

Summer Fruit – How Much Sugar?

Posted by:

It’s Summer time and the fruits and veggies are coming into abundance. Each summer I can hardly wait for those big, ripe, juicy organic cherries and grapes to arrive at the markets. Sadly, but honestly, I admit to gorging on more than a few in any one sitting. It’s healthy fruit, right? Well, while they’re healthy, they do contain natural sugars, so it’s important to be mindful in keeping helpings to a palm sized serving.

Want to know which of our ...

Top 15 Healthy Grilling Tips!

Posted by:

Many of us will be enjoying our grills this summer season, whether your food of choice be meat or veggies. No one wants salmonella from uncooked meat, poultry, or seafood, but let’s also make sure we aren’t ingesting toxins from overcooked, burnt food or inhaling carcinogenic smoke either.

 

 

The American Cancer Society notes that cooking meat at high temperatures can create chemicals that may increase your cancer risk. In fact, one study linked regular consumption of charred, well-done meat with a ...

Emotional Eating – Who Me?

Posted by:

Okay, so I think it’s probably fair to say 99% of us have put food in our mouths as a reaction to some emotion. We’ve all heard of the phrase “comfort” food, right? It helps us cope during times when we may be feeling depressed or out-of-touch with life. But then there are the times we eat when we’re celebrating too! I know I have justified eating the wrong foods and too much of them because “we’re celebrating!” SO many ...

Cosmetic Acupuncture Works!

Posted by:

Hey readers! Okay, so you know I practice what I preach :-). A year ago I wrote a blog post about cosmetic acupuncture. During my research, I was fortunate to find Dr. Martha Lucas who lives right here in Denver! I went to see Dr. Lucas with these areas of concern: facial age spots, sagging jawline, neck lines and puffy eyes.

As promised, I set up a series of 10 sessions with her a few months ago and am happy to ...
