There is about 5lbs of bacteria in the human body and the quality of their environment – the healthiness of the microbial life plus the diversity – governs health in so many ways. A poor internal ecosystem caused by bad diet, exposure to chemicals and stress, will suppress the good bacteria, promote the bad bacteria, and will lead to a toxic build up of hormones as well as other signs of systemic inflammation.Read More
Most of us can agree that sleep is important, but do we know why? When we don’t get much, we feel lousy. When we get 7-8 hours, we feel great.Read More
Sex hormones are very complicated. There are so many systems in the body that need to be healthy and balanced to maintain stable hormones. These three systems are the most crucial for women with any hormonal imbalances, but especially as hormones decline during peri-menopause and into menopause.Read More
It’s cold and flu season, so you’re prepared with your arsenal of immune-boosters such as vitamin C and herbal remedies, but if you’re ignoring your lymphatic system, you’re missing out on a huge opportunity to support your immune system and overall health!
The lymphatic system is the body’s inner “drainage system,” a network of blood vessels and lymph nodes that carry fluids from tissues around the body into the blood and vice vRead More
The DUTCH test stands for - Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones, and I encourage most of my clients get a baseline test. Why? Because it’s the gold standard when it comes to hormone testing.

I just heard an analogy on an Autoimmune Summit I'm listening to - if you've ever been in NYC during a garbage strike you know it only takes a few days before things get really toxic and backed up on the streets... as our cells detoxify it counts on our lymph system to get those toxins out of the body. In order to do that, simplistically speaking, the cells 'dump' toxins outside the cell and the lymph system is encouraged by movement and exercise (muscles contracting) and hydration to keep those toxins moving to make sure they are excreted and not recirculated.Read More

New Lupus diagnosis… who has the best information on this condition that I can implement for my client?)Read More
