MTHFR and pregnancy

Most people don't realize the difference between folic acid and folate, since they believe they are both 'the same vitamin.' It is 'old school' to supplement high doses of folic acid with MTHFR as it is preferentially absorbed and excess circulating folic acid has detrimental effects on a developing fetus, past the first trimester.…

Im so confused. I rarely eat meat at all and if I do it is grass fed or wild.

I take only the highest quality vitamins, I dont smoke or drink, I do no drugs of any kind what so ever and guess what? I have high cholesterol of… Continue

Drug-resistant bacteria and antibiotics

I have a few dead horses which I choose to beat. The MYTH and FEAR associated with discontinuing UNNECESSARY antibiotics, in the event of improperly prescribed (viral illness), or excessive diarrhea (antibiotic induced diarrhea-which could be dangerous C. difficile overgrowth), is one of them.

For the Love of Fermented Foods

[Guest blog post from Ruth Almon of Ruth's Real Food.]

The first time I heard that people from traditional cultures eat a small amount of fermented foods at each meal, the information passed right by me. That’s fine for them, but I wasn’t about to start eating kimchi and sauerkraut with every meal.


The second time I learned about the wonderful properties of fermented foods, I was intrigued. It seemed…

10 Steps to Wellness


1. Let food be thy medicine – Eat whole, real, unprocessed foods. As Micheal Pollan says “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” Eating as much of your foods in their raw, whole, unprocessed, organic state as possible is critical.

Help for Eyestrain

We all spend far too much time doing close-up work, generally staring at the computer screen all day, and our eyes are paying the price.


Our eyes are meant to be used for "all seeing" - both near and far, but with our lifestyles and technological gadgets, we wind up being out of balance by using our "near" ability way too much - at the expense of our "far"…
