Detox Summit

0

For years, we’ve been conducting group detox events in the fall and the spring.  I’ve talked about the importance of detoxification in lectures, in my book (Boosting Your Immunity for Dummies) and with patients.  Now, there’s a chance for you to learn even more:  my friend and colleague, Deanna Minich, PhD, has organized an online Detox Summit, and it’s free!

Things you may not know about MIB….

2

It struck me recently that there are a lot of things going on at MIB that folks don’t seem to know about.  Mostly that’s because it’s a complex place, and we all focus on what’s most important to us.  So here are a few things you might not be aware of: Rad oil This is an herbal oil that I […]

What do you know about your microbiome?

2

Did you know that there are more “bugs” in and on you than there are cells of you? For every gene in your own genome, there are about 100 bacterial genes.  Kind of makes you wonder who’s in charge!  More and more research is showing that the microbes who live with us vastly impact our health, everything from our levels […]

Starting Over, again….

4

Are you tired yet of all the “New Year, New You” articles and headlines, blabbing about changing this and that and the other thing?  Let’s get real–change is tough.  It’s not ever a straight line, but more like a spiral—you make a change, you “fall off the wagon” and get close to where you were before.  But it isn’t really […]

2

Sure, most people call it “Thanksgiving Day”, but I think I’d rather call it “Gratitude Day”.  The other term has too many associations with excess food and football; this year, I’d like to focus on true gratitude and appreciation.  Remember, the holiday is about recalling that big dinner held by a band of white Europeans who were giving thanks to […]
