We are kicking off Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a chat about mammograms. If you are a woman over 40, you more than likely plan to have a mammogram every year. And if you’re reading this thinking my doctor hasn’t mentioned an annual mammogram to me and I’m over 40, don’t be alarmed, but definitely […]

There is no way I could do a cortisol blog series and not talk about belly fat. And more important than knowing that cortisol increases belly fat, is knowing how to get rid of it. And that’s where food comes in. So often when people think about belly fat, they automatically think diet and food […]
Since you have been following the blog, I imagine you might be thinking about what you can do to reset your cortisol levels.

Cortisol is often the cause of anxiety, restlessness, constant fatigue, and yes unexplained weight gain or difficulty losing weight. If you’re raising your hand right now, like that’s me, then you’re in good company. More than 77% of Americans report experiencing stress and all the drama that occurs alongside it. So what the heck is […]
Community. A feeling of fellowship with others as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals. Now more than ever we need community.

There is much fear surrounding COVID-19, commonly known as the coronavirus. So I wanted to write this post to help you identify easy ways to strengthen your immunity in addition to all the hand washing precautions. Especially given you might not be able to find soap to wash your hands with! Let alone a bottle of hand sanitizer!
Adrenaline or epinephrine is your short-term, acute stress hormone. It’s designed to help you get out of danger quickly. It is the hormone that promotes the fight or flight response, that results in your blood supply being diverted to your periphery, (i.e.) arms, legs. In order for your body to have the energy to fully execute on the fight or flight system, you need fuel or energy, and the most readily available source of energy in the body is glucose.
If you have diabetes, you have likely been told by somebody, I hope, to eat foods that are low-glycemic. And I would agree and advocate the same regardless of diabetes status. In fact, the foundation of chronic disease management and prevention is aligned with eating low-glycemic foods. There are a few nuances to that, depending on the condition, but in general, eating low-glycemic foods minimizes fluctuations in blood sugar and minimizes inflammation.
While poor gut health has existed for an eternity, people just weren’t talking about it. Now it seems to be all the rage. In fact, Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, said all diseases originate in the gut. If that is true why aren’t more providers targeting the gut as part of chronic disease management? Likely because it’s easier to treat a symptom than it is to correct the underlying problem.
