Ways to Stay Consistent with HEALTHIER EATING

24/11/2021

In my practice, I find that when people take on transforming their eating habits, they often try a diet, get frustrated, and then bounce back to their original routines. First, this is totally normal, but it can also be really frustrating and honestly won’t do much for your health. Instead of trying trendy diets, the goal can be to develop healthy eating habits that make you feel good and that you can easily incorporate into your lifestyle for a long time.…

Salt as a FIX-ALL?

18/11/2021

Too much of anything is a bad thing. We can overdo it with kale, with caffeine, with probiotic foods … the key is moderation, especially with vital, naturally occurring substances that we certainly need. We need enough of them, not too much, and not too little. The same goes for salt, even though it’s been villainized by the FDA. We hear recommendations about how to reduce our sodium intake. While there are tons of articles about how to “slash” your sodium…

ALKALINE SUPERFOODS for Optimal Health

21/09/2021

We hear of specialized diets all the time. There’s Whole 30, the Mediterranean diet (which is more of a lifestyle that we agree with), keto, and paleo. And now, more and more people are touting the effects of going on an alkaline diet. Kourt loves to cycle keto spurts in her diet to rebalance her system. The Whole 30 diet can also be a nice reset, depending on the person. But in general, we don’t advocate for fad diets. They aren’t sustainable, and thus,…

INFLAMMATORY FOODS to Avoid (and Why)

26/09/2020

Inflammation is not all bad—actually, it’s necessary. It’s your body’s natural defense against harmful invaders such as bacteria, viruses, and pathogens, and in healing after an injury or trauma. When we get sick, our body’s initial response is to create more white blood cells to help drive out the virus or bacteria that has invaded our system.

12/09/2020

In my experience, skin problems can be the most complicated and frustrating issues. Especially when the issues are written all over your face … hello acne! I’ve been through it myself and have had to hone in on making sure my diet is improving and not hurting my complexion.
