Estrogen Overload – Fixing the Chaos.

All of these seem like small steps, and it’s true they won’t change your estrogen levels overnight, but sadly, nothing will short of drugs like tamoxifen that are used in breast cancer. Still, taking these steps for three months will produce noticeable results in your PMS, mood swings, estrogen related weight gain and cycle. Continue reading

Cancer from your coffee filters? Dioxins in your home.

This is one of those things that nobody ever really thinks of as having the potential to harm, and yet, it does. The industrial bleaching process for paper products involves a chlorine based bleach that in and of itself is safe. When it comes into contact with organic material like wood pulp, however, a chemical reaction occurs. This reaction yields one of the most toxic substances known to man, called Dioxin.

Formaldehyde in Brazilian Blowout. All In the Name of Beauty.

The solution that is used for the popular hair treatment the Brazilian Blowout, which gives your hair a “natural” (har har) silky smooth look, is 12% Formaldehyde. 12%!!! I would like to point out that 12% is approximately the same amount as is used in the solution in which cadavers are preserved. So essentially, if you need to preserve a human, just dip them in Brazilian Blowout. Continue reading

Fiber! The Forgotten Miracle

If your fiber intake is too low then one of the best things you can do is add more high fiber foods into your diet or even a fiber supplement if you can’t add the foods. I try to shoot for anything between 30-50 grams daily. I don’t always make it, but I always try. Foods like nuts, beans, whole grains, fruits, vegetables and dark chocolate (woohoo!!!) are all high in fiber. Continue reading

Hitting the Reset Button

Short fasts of 3-5 days are a great way to clean house. I suggest doing 2-4 per year (and of course doing the 24-36 hour fasts once weekly) to help keep you healthy, happy and vital. And did I mention that it’s strongly anti-aging and actually slows the aging process? The research is entirely clear on this point. Regular fasting both extends life and slows aging. Yet another great reason to hit the reset button! Continue reading

Mini-Fasting. What a Great Tool!

This is such a powerful tool. I really can’t emphasize enough how much benefit I’ve seen from doing regular micro-fasts. One day a week, almost every week, I do either a 24 or a 36 hour fast (really hectic weeks I’ll just do a 24 hour, weeks that are a little less hectic I’ll do a 36 hour.) It’s just part of my health routine. Continue reading

HCG Horror

Bottom line is, quick-fixes and injectables don’t work in the long run and are usually bad for you (and this one is frankly dangerous). The old fashioned way isn’t glamorous, but it takes weight off and keeps it off long-term. Continue reading

Castor Oil – Because it’s Awesome.

The castor bean plant, also called Palma Christi, or palm of Christ. Possibly because of its hand-shaped leaves, possibly because it’s as close to a miracle as I’ve ever seen. Continue reading

Please God End the Holiday Eating!

Seriously by this time of the season I’ve eaten everything in sight, drank every glass that has been thrust into my hands and am so completely surrounded by gifts and goodwill and tinsel that I want to curl up in a ball and take a week away from everything. EVERYTHING. Seriously. Bah humbug. ;) Continue reading
