Get a Clean Slate: 10 Ways to Start 2015 Right

iStock_000054707932_Large2015 has just begun…

If you’ve ever set resolutions before, you know how easily they can fall by the wayside.  So, this year I’ve put together a fail-proof list of “habits”—not resolutions—that will make you feel so good, you’ll never want to turn back.

1. Combat Stress, Anxiety and Depression with Probiotics

Brand new research has made another compelling argument for the importance of the normal flora in our bodies.  A study published in Psychopharmacology showed that pre-biotics (fiber that feeds good bacteria) make a significant difference in our emotional state.  Volunteers taking a pre-biotic had lower cortisol levels, reduced anxiety and depression, and less of a stress response to negative stimuli than the volunteers who received a placebo.

I’ve taken Flora-Key for years now. I pop it into my morning smoothie, use it as a sweetener and add it to no-heat recipes. I’m thankful it provides complete microbiome support offering prebiotic FOS and probiotics acidophilus, B. longum, B. bifidum, L. reuteri, and L. plantarum. Continue reading →

The focus of this brand new research by Kathleen Page and her team at the University of Southern California is on fructose.

Sounds sweet, doesn’t it?  You might rethink that after I tell you the facts. Continue reading →

A Remarkable Recovery

James TempletonA Dose of Inspiration for the Season of Giving

Many of us can appreciate the age old axiom, “it’s better to give than receive.”  After all, giving back is one of the best ways to express gratitude for our many blessings.

The urge to give is especially strong this time of year as so many of us open our hearts to charitable causes, visit children’s hospitals, support the troops and stock up the food banks.

But, sometimes the urge to express gratitude is all-consuming—when you’re been given a gift of a miraculous healing, a gift so extraordinary that you feel overwhelmingly inspired to dedicate your life to paying it forward. Continue reading →

Sugar vs Fat Burning

Sugar vs. Fat Burning

 

Which fuel stokes your metabolic fire?

Simply put, your body burns either sugar or fat for energy.

Typically each of us falls into one category or the other. Whether you derive your energy from sugar or fat will ultimately determine your ability to lose weight and keep it off for good.

If you are running on sugar, you will crave sugar and you will not burn body fat. However if you are burning fat as fuel — the preferred fuel source for your system — sugar cravings will become a thing of the past. Continue reading →
