Dementia and aluminum: every North American should know this

My grampa died with severe dementia, as did my former husband’s lovely grandfather. Both remembered no one in their later years, which was heartbreaking for their families. I’ve always wondered if my grampa’s was related to his massive exposure to DDT pesticide. Many of my family members including my dad worked in the family cherry […]

Is eating kale going to kill your thyroid?

I have a number of people asking about kale, since a New York Times columnist recently implied that her diagnosis of hyperthyroidism could be related to eating kale. And flax.

Best-kept healing secret in the world: Come with me back to Switzerland!

We’re just back from a place, as one patient at the clinic put it, “suspended between Earth and Heaven.” I couldn’t agree more. Usually at the end of a two-week trip, I’m dying to get home. Not this time. I went kicking and screaming, back to the Milan airport. Al Ronc feels like a second […]

Sugar as dangerous as alcohol and cigarettes

A study out of University of California at SF says that sugar should be regulated like alcohol and cigarettes, because it’s every bit as dangerous and deleterious. Click here to view the News Video on Sugar Study It changes your metabolism, raises your blood pressure, and destroys your liver, they say. They state that it contributes […]

Meditate your way to a new relationship between Self and Food

Update! I wrote after New Year’s about the sometimes-infuriating power of HABIT. At the time, I was turning right, instead of left, 95% of the time when I got to the top of my street. The city put a new through-street in, but years of having to go the other way controlled my brain for […]
