Viruses are everywhere in the news these days—and not just Ebola.
Ten states have reported an outbreak of a mysterious flu-like virus causing severe respiratory illness in kids. Enterovirus is now being investigated.
In Kansas City, Missouri alone, more than 300 cases of respiratory illnesses were reported last month, according to the state Department of Health. In about 15% of the cases, children were placed in an intensive care unit.
When my best friend was recently diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer, the breast cancer epidemic really hit home for me and I went into overdrive.
Like so many others who have breast cancer today (approximately 1 in 8 of us) there was no prior history of breast cancer in my best friend’s family.
So I naturally embarked on a frantic research mission to update myself and her regarding the best lifestyle choices, supplements and healing foods to help strengthen her system and prevent re-occurrence in the future. Continue reading →
The influence of the seasons on the delicate balance of your body is one of the most vital but overlooked aspects of total health.
There is an amazing organic synchronicity between the foods that grow naturally in your locale in each season and the physiological challenges presented by the changes in weather, daylight hours, and plummeting temperatures.
Just by “word of mouth,” this product has been a continual best seller for almost 15 years.
What a remarkable record when you consider how many “new” cutting edge compounds are introduced into the marketplace every day with millions of dollars fueling aggressive marketing campaigns.
Health Sciences Institute, one of the foremost newsletters in the country, was the first to uncover the “miracle” formula with a front page cover story (over ten years ago) that sung its praises:
My original Fat Flush® Soup Diet has helped thousands to detoxify and beat their bloat while emulsifying fat. While there are a multitude of copycat “Fat Flush Soup” recipes on the internet, here’s the program that really works (and has been clinically tested).
Initially developed as a stand-alone Fat Flush diet introductory program to The Fat Flush Plan and Fat Flush for Life, the Soup Diet has taken on a life of its own ever since it was introduced in Woman’s World and First For Women.
According to research from a study at Penn State, eating soup can trigger you to consume up to 448 fewer calories per meal. Continue reading →
Word has it that the late Apple guru, Steve Jobs, did not allow his kids to spend too much time with their digital gadgets.
Several recent articles including a piece in the New York Times entitled Steve Jobs Was A Low-Tech Parent have shed light on this little known fact about Jobs and what went on in his home.
“We limit how much technology our kids use at home,” Jobs was quoted as saying in the New York Times article. Continue reading →
One of the most common questions I’m asked these days is about my take on the Paleo diet.
Here are some reflections I received recently from a devoted five-year dieting fan who is following a program that she regards as “Beyond Paleo.”
“In search of the perfect dietary plan, I have scoured blogs and text books, consulted friends and family, and even watched full length TV commercials.
Many are so far off base that it is downright comical. Some come close, but lack key principles. Continue reading →
The fall always reminds me of my experience over twenty years ago when I was writing my first book, Beyond Pritikin (Bantam, 1988).
Back then (in the mid 1980s), I worked with an extraordinarily fast computer whiz, Chris, who transcribed my handwritten manuscript. Because of Chris’ schedule we often had to work through the night.
Chris was so capable and helpful, that I agreed to stay up and work alongside her. I marveled at Chris’ consistent mental focus—even after a full day of “regular” work with her 9 to 5 job. Continue reading →
The most remarkable news about omega 3-rich fish oil is its dramatic effect on children. Numerous studies over the past three decades have demonstrated that kids with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) had lower omega-3 levels than their “normal” peers.
Fish oil is high in the essential fatty acids DHA and EPA, but DHA especially has been shown to improve a variety of learning disorders including dyslexia.
If your child needs to improve his/her ability to focus and concentrate, a teaspoon of Carlson’s The Very Finest Fish Oil provides the study-backed dose of 500 mg DHA that improves learning disabilities.
Mixed in salad dressing, used as a topping on non-GMO popcorn, or drizzled on veggies, fish oil improves mental health and is good for the whole family…with no fishy aftertaste and a hint of lemon! Continue reading →
