A toast to Eleanor Romney!

I’ve a confession. I’ve never even been to a movie by myself. I’ve really never been alone. I was married for 20 years since I was very young. I was always in a relationship, from 16 onward, until a couple of years ago when my career swallowed me whole. But even at that, I’m always […]

What your fingernails say about your health, part 2 of 2

Today , let’s talk about what your nails can tell you about your health, according to several sources I studied. (They include American Academy of Dermatology; the Arthritis Foundation; Mayo Clinic; Fawcett, Linford, and Stulberg’s “Nail Abnormalities: Clues to Systemic Disease,” Dr. Andrew Weil; and Web MD.) Cracked or split nails: thyroid disease (or, with […]

You miss cheese? Try this!

Pam Opdyke is a GreenSmoothieGirl reader who brought 20 people with her, from 2 hours away, to my Sacramento lecture in April. She passionately blogs about health and nutrition topics for friends and family. She shared this “cheeze” recipe that she said is wonderful  on steamed veggies, baked potatoes, in veggie lasagna, on sandwiches, or […]

What your fingernails say about your health, part 1 of 2

Did you know that the color of your fingernails, rippling or bumps or spots, reveal problems in your liver, lungs, or even heart? I’ve always been fascinated by fingernails. And I’ve noticed that the health of these cool little protective coverings for my fingers correspond to my overall health. They have dozens functions in any […]

Thoughts on changing habits

I built my house 9 years ago on the culdesac of a quiet street of just 12 homes. My house backs up to the canal that carries irrigation water for hundreds of miles along the base of the Rockies on the Wasatch Front. I have illegally run thousands of miles next to this canal, since […]

More…..about scars on the human body

Nikki wrote me about my last blog post. She said she was pondering the scar conversation we had, and about how scars point to some other things: She said, isn’t it amazing how the autonomic nervous system does things like breathing, creating white blood cells to fight infection, starting self-healing processes immediately upon being wounded. […]

And what to do about SCARS?

On the long drive home from Tijuana to Utah earlier this month, I stopped at a McD’s because they have the cleanest bathrooms. And, well, because I’d drunk the 32 oz green juice I swerved off the freeway to get, at the Henderson Whole Foods Market. Inside the stall, a pink Post-It Note was taped […]

What to do about WRINKLES?

After yoga, when I’m rolling up my mat, seems like often a GSG reader comes over to chat. Tell me their green smoothie experience, ask what to do to help a friend struggling with health problems, ask me when the group buy ends. Stuff like that. Recently, Cheryl, a 53-yo, very fit breast cancer survivor, […]

Throw a starfish back in the water

  Check out this USA Today article. In the U.S., we’re living longer but we’re sicker. We’re prolonging desperate, miserable lives. Remember, “A man with his health has many dreams. A man without it has only one.” In America now 10% of us have diabetes, 28% of us are obese, 31% of us have high […]

New video: Eat Cancer-Fighting Chocolate Mousse!

Want to learn how chocolate mousse may be part of a cancer-reversal strategy? And by the same logic, a cancer-preventative one too? In November, I studied with Dr. Lloyd Jenkins, who runs the Budwig Clinic in Malaga Spain, on the southern coast. He is the only doctor endorsed by seven-time Nobel Prize-nominated Dr. Johanna Budwig. […]
