the superfood for my gut (yours too!)

When was the last time you did a gut check?

Maybe you have no digestive symptoms, so you worry instead about your brain fog, fatigue, skin issues, blood sugar or diagnosed autoimmune condition—bypassing the all important connection between the GI tract and every single sign or symptom that irks you. (Yes, that connection exists and it’s strong!)

Maybe you think you’ve got that gut thing covered; you’ve been there and done that (“yeah, yeah, I healed my gut last year”). We hear that one a lot in the Alliance Clinic!

Yet I want to share with you what I’ve found for myself and my own health (Hashimoto’s, brain, hormone, anti-aging and more)…

First, what the heck is a brassica?

Today I want to make testament to the tea leaf—the green tea leaf.

You’ve likely heard that green tea is good for your health. It’s not really “news”. What I’d like to look at with you is the WHYs and the HOWs of some of green tea’s goodness.

Take a look at these 3 great benefits of green tea…

the perfect remedy for your weekend hangover…

OK. You did it. You indulged a bit this weekend. Maybe an early dip into the Halloween candy bucket or an extra pour of that warming red wine.

Perhaps you’ve been overindulging for a few nights (or weeks or months), sampling the candy intended for the trick-or-treaters later this month, unwrapping more than a couple of Tootsie Rolls at a time.

There’s something important to know…It’s OK! We all do it.

That’s why it’s key to know when to come back to your center—your path, as I like to call it—where you can tap into the factors that ultimately impact your health, happiness, weight goals and hormonal equanimity…

That does not mean that your awareness and action should be relegated to one month out of the year—especially when several types of cancer, as well as low thyroid function and a host of other signs and symptoms, have one big thing in common…

This is something I hear from so many people, near and far, old and young.

You may be feeling it today too!

It sounds extreme, but more women than not experience hormonal fluctuations that leave us frustrated, scratching our heads and seeking remedy—or, like me, discovering later that our hormones were, in part, to blame, and that there was actually something we could have done about it along the way.

That’s why I have three hormone happy recommendations for you—just in time for you to navigate the shifting seasons and shorter days…
