Best Holistic Practices To Prepare The Body For Spring

Chinese medicine spring

Spring! The season of new beginnings with longer and brighter days, warmer weather, blossoming of tress and flowers, rainy days, and singing of birds! Spring represents renewal and rejuvenation… a time of releasing stagnant emotions and energies; an emotional and physical detoxification to embrace regrowth and renewal! There is optimism that shines through as the days get longer and we spend more time outdoors. We feel more energetic as the sun shines more and more hopeful of what is to come.

Immunology of Mold/fungal Infection

Mold toxicity

We are exposed to mold and their myctotoxins everyday. For some of us, they don’t have too many affects on our health as our immune system is strong enough to fight them off. However chronic exposure can lead to immune dysregulation and suppression and can cause us to have severe health issues as a result. There are direct fungal issues or mycotoxic effects that occur. If we are to have mycotoxin build up, it functions in such a way that it drives destruction of self tissue (aka autoimmunity). Continue reading “Immunology of Mold/fungal Infection”

Biotherapeutic Drainage: Why You Need Homeopathy To Effectively Re-balance Your Body

UNDA Numbered Compounds

Majority of people aren’t aware of drainage therapy. We hear a lot about detoxing but they are two very different things. DRAINAGE should come BEFORE detoxing.

We live in an industrialized world and are exposed to a variety of harmful chemicals in the air we breathe, the food and drink we consumes, the surfaces we touch and the products (beauty, household, etc) we use as well as the medications we take and more. It is not a question of whether or not we are toxic, but a question of HOW TOXIC. This isn’t news though! If you ask any of the climate change advocates out there what is causing climate change, they will all say the toxins that are being created !

How to Minimize Probiotic Side Effects During A Pathogen Cleanse

Probiotics during candida cleanse

Should we always be taking probiotics when we are doing a pathogen cleanse? Addressing intestinal dysbiosis involves reducing the populations of unfavorable flora and increasing the populations of favorable flora. You pull the weeds, plant new grass seed, and condition the soil. In this blog post, I want to go into some detail on the T cell polarizing effects of probiotics and their contemporaneous use with anti-pathogenic supplements.

Understanding Genomics – The Importance of Knowing Your Genetic SNPs


Understanding Genomics – The importance of knowing your SNPs

Genomics includes the scientific study of genetics SNPs and the complex diseases such as heart disease, autoimmune disease, asthma, diabetes, and cancer because these diseases are typically caused more by a combination of genetic and environmental factors than by individual genes. Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) are common genetic variations that explain many of the differences among individuals. Knowing which SNPs you carry enables your practitioner to more effectively support you and your individual health needs. While over 10 million SNPs are known, only a few have clinical significance so working with a practitioner who can help support you and your most important/relevant SNPs to your case is essential. SNPs help predict an individual’s response to certain drugs, susceptibility to environmental factors such as toxins, and risk of developing diseases. SNPs can also be used to track the inheritance of disease-associated genetic variants within families. Understanding the potential contribution of your genomic data to your phenotypic expression can be of profound importance to the management of your health and symptoms. Nutrigenomics is a branch of science that uses cutting-edge genomics technology to study the link between our genes, nutrition, and health. This information allows us to develop personalized strategies for optimal health. Continue reading “Understanding Genomics – The Importance of Knowing Your Genetic SNPs”

Signs of High Estrogen levels

Estrogen is such a powerful hormone and is part of so many different processes and reactions in the body! There are estrogen receptors EVERYWHERE IN THE BODY (gut, brain, etc)! Because it is so important, if there is an imbalance, it creates a host of issues. Your estrogen levels will normally fluctuate through your cycle and as we go through puberty, pregnancy, peri menopause and menopause. Continue reading “Signs of High Estrogen levels”

Tips to help Improve Varicose Veins and Hemorrhoids and Relieve Pain Associated With Them


Varicose veins and hemorrhoids are common throughout all stages in life but typically tend to progress and worsen as we get older. Varicose veins often begin as spider veins and hemorrhoids and are strongly correlated with insufficient liver activity, most commonly due to lack of exercise, not enough dietary fiber and chronic use of alcohol and/or cigarette smoking. All these triggers create poor circulation which leads to congestion with the arterial and venous systems, causing varicose veins and hemorrhoids.
