How “CLEAN” is Your Diet?

As a Nutritionist, I often get asked what’s my best advice for attaining a healthy diet. People are often surprised I don’t tell them to eliminate carbs, or even bread.

Why Vaccinating Isn’t a *PERSONAL* Issue

The recent passage of Calibornia bill SB 277, which mandates certain vaccines in order for a child to be allowed to attend school, has created quite an uproar among parents concerned about losing individual freedom of choice.

We each have an inner healer. Whenever we feel moved to try to “heal” someone else, it’s an opportunity to deepen our own healing. On some level, people know when they are doing something that’s self-destructive. Our job as healers isn’t to tell them what they should and shouldn’t be doing. Our job is to […]
