My 30 Day Challenge Of No Alcohol And No Coffee

I have been a consultant and a contractor for years. I have worked for the government, for big corporations and for one of the biggest consulting firms in the world. With consulting and contract work, comes travel. And with lots of travel, comes client dinners, happy hour and networking events, late nights, hotels and lots of jetlag. Sometime last year I noticed that my constant traveling, lack of a consistent workout routine, and eating out was leading to a bit of weight gain. I would travel across the country multiple times per month and would reach for lattes to keep

The Missing Piece To Healing Autoimmune Disease

My body has been, and is, my greatest teacher. My own journey with my body started when I was young – health issues (skin, digestive, hormonal, autoimmune), emotional eating, chronic dieting, over-exercising, body shame and judgment. It is the reason I went to school for nutrition. I thought if I had the perfect body, I would have the perfect life. I found out having the perfect body was not the answer. Along my way, I had to find a new way to see and relate to my body. What I discovered, was that my health struggle was actually my pathway to wholeness and joy, in

Short Q&A With Todd And Christian. Crohn’s Disease And Ulcerative Colitis Patients

“My biggest concern was that I just wanted to swim with my kids” – Todd A few years ago  we founded the San Diego Gut Warriors and Integrative Crohn’s and Colitis Support Group We created the group because the other support groups I had visited only discussed surgery, and medication. One hundred percent of the time. Great options for some, and I was looking to reverse my disease, not medicate and patch the symptoms or remove vital organs from my body. Earlier this year Todd hosted a group hike through Mission Trails in San Diego. Nancy Lesnick Czarzasty, a professor

Gut Bacteria Spotted Eating Brain Chemicals For The First Time

Bacteria have been discovered in our guts that depend on one of our brain chemicals for survival. These bacteria consume GABA, a molecule crucial for calming the brain, and the fact that they gobble it up could help explain why the gut microbiome seems to affect mood. Philip Strandwitz and his colleagues at Northeastern University in Boston discovered that they could only grow a species of recently discovered gut bacteria, called KLE1738, if they provide it with GABA molecules. “Nothing made it grow, except GABA,” Strandwitz said while announcing his findings at the annual meeting of the American Society for

Q&A With Justine Meader – Crohn’s Disease & Raw Cannabis Juice

Last year I came across Justine Meaders miraculous healing of a bad case of Crohn’s Disease by drinking Raw Cannabis Juice How could this be? Cannabis is federally illegal in many states. Marijuana is classified as a schedule I class drug, which there is no medical use, and is in the same group of drugs as Heroin and Cocaine. For the history and explanation of perhaps why Marijuana is illegal, watch this video. I’m not advocating the usage of Marijuana, yet far more die per year from Alcohol and Tobaco than Marijuana. Back to Justine. She had been battling the

I’ve Gone Through Enough Pain Everyday To Make You Crazy

I’ve gone through enough pain everyday to make you crazy I’ve had surgery to remove parts of my body because of how sick they were. I’ve survived a head injury that changed my perspective of the world and left me without a few senses. I’ve survived a dog attack, countless people have come into my life and left both dead and alive, been around the globe and survived illness alone in a distant county with no way to communicate and ask for help. And today I woke up with a smile on my face. I woke up today having looked

Cancer Treatment Day 1

What is Cancer? Webster Dictionary says the disease caused by an uncontrolled division of abnormal cells in a part of the body. The American Cancer Society says, The cells in our bodies all have certain jobs to do. Normal cells divide in an orderly way. They die when they are worn out or damaged, and new cells take their place. Cancer is when the cells start to grow out of control. The cancer cells keep on growing and making new cells. They crowd out normal cells. This causes problems in the part of the body where the cancer started. For me,
