Hormones can impact weight loss big time.
While we all know something about estrogen, who knew of the fat flushing benefits of the hormone progesterone?
Plain and simple, progesterone helps burn body fat for fuel.
Estrogen, on the other hand, promotes weight gain—from both actual fat and water retention—especially around your tummy, hips, and thighs. A prevalent condition known as estrogen dominance even changes the way in which your body produces serotonin—the feel-good brain chemical. In turn, a lack of serotonin leads to food cravings and weight gain. What a vicious cycle! Continue reading →
I was shocked several years ago when an EMF remediator discovered high levels of electropollution in my home’s master bedroom. He assured me this is not at all unusual—given all the electronics and electrical devices people have today, your bedroom may be keeping you awake at night too!
This is where you should be spending at least eight hours a night sleeping. If (instead) you’re tossing and turning, unnatural voltage in your body—produced by the wiring in your walls, extension cords, electrical appliances, and electronic devices—may be the problem.
This is why it’s so crucial—many cases of chronic insomnia or restless sleep (including intermittent wakeups) have been solved by simply unplugging a wireless router or turning off cell phones at night. Everyday new cell phone towers are popping up and we absorb hundreds of frequencies through our bodies and into our brains impacting the pineal gland and more. Continue reading →
Since your mouth is the repository of a tremendous amount of bacteria that can impact different areas of your body, it’s no surprise that researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have found that arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, emphysema, hepatitis C, obesity, and stroke can be linked to gum and dental problems.
Dentists who practice holistic and biological dentistry believe that each tooth is connected to an organ.
If that tooth has a root canal, is decayed (even under a crown that X-rays don’t pick up), is an implant, or even has been pulled—leaving behind a cavitation (hole in the jawbone)—you can experience a whole host of health challenges in the associated meridian line of that tooth. Continue reading →
When my long-time editor called and told me I just had to take a look at a new book called Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds, I knew I wanted to read it.
I knew she thought this book was something special and since she’s been at the forefront of the health movement with me for many years, I trusted her opinion.
And it is.
In this new book that just hit the shelves this week (and was featured on The Dr. Oz Show on Tuesday), author Dr. Kelly Turner decided that it was no longer okay for doctors to keep ignoring people who heal from cancer against all odds. Continue reading →
The environment, like the Titanic, is sinking in a sea of Wi-Fi.
We are engulfed in a growing maze of biologically disruptive electromagnetic frequencies that leads to sleep disturbances as well as belly fat, blood sugar imbalances, cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment, changes in cell membrane and calcium metabolism function, headaches, fatigue, chromosome aberrations, accelerated aging, thinning skin, autoimmune problems, and mood disturbances.
It’s coming from our smart meters, cell phones, cordless phones, computers, tablets, wireless routers, networks, microwaves, power lines, and wireless security systems. Continue reading →
You may be surprised—even shocked—to discover that on a daily basis you are exposed to some form of electromagnetic radiation that may be compromising your health. Up until now, you probably have not been aware of this hidden form of pollution and how zapped you are in your home, at work, and even where you play. Continue reading →
Note: This is the first of a series of excerpts from my latest book, Zapped: Why Your Cell Phone Shouldn’t Be Your Alarm Clock and 1,268 Ways to Outsmart the Hazards of Electronic Pollution. Zapped is the first step-by-step manual for fortifying your body, detoxifying your home, and protecting yourself and your family from invisible electronic pollution.
Quick. Look around you. What is the most fascinating high-tech thing you use?
Is it your iPhone or iPad? Or that GPS mounted on your windshield? Perhaps it’s your xBox or your home theater with its enormous flat-screen TV and surround-sound system. Continue reading →
Next month heralds the return of spring. Spring is traditionally the time in which the liver needs to be nourished according to traditional Chinese medicine.
I’ll admit it…I’m in awe of the liver.
As far as I’m concerned, this amazing organ nestled away in the right side of the abdomen has more than earned its name, which is derived from an old English word for “life.”
The liver is your key to life, even possessing the unique ability to regenerate itself. Although your liver may need up to two years for this regeneration process, you can rebuild this vital organ with the right diet and detox plan.
These liver-loving nutrients will keep it running smoothly and promote its detoxification—for optimum weight loss and health. Continue reading →
Although synonymous with Valentine’s Day, chocolate alone possesses an alluring mystical quality that enchants us all 24/7.
Its allure has been around for 2,000 years or more. In fact, many centuries ago, cacao beans—from which chocolate is originally derived—were considered so valuable that they were used as a kind of currency.
Now we know that chocolate is actually good for you and especially good for your heart. Continue reading →
With the popularity of paleo diets and Dr. David Perlmutter’s book “Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar—Your Brain’s Silent Killers,“ it’s time to remind ourselves that our bodies are still fashioned after the cavemen.
As strange as it may seem, genetically, we have changed very little since the “modern” human being appeared over 40,000 years ago. It’s a topic I’ve been writing about for over 25 years, so I’m happy to see that it’s “an idea whose time has finally come.” Continue reading →
