     Mornings can be such a drag!  Let me clarify that:  mornings can be such a drag when you're working full time, trying to take care of your family, AND trying to lead a healthy lifestyle!  As soon as you open your eyes, the weight of the world is on your shoulders.  It's a race to see how much you can fit into that finite period of time we call the day.  Is there really any way to master the morning?

     Our days are filled with commitments.  They're different for everyone, but we all have things we have to do in order to survive the day.    Add in a couple of kids and their commitments and it can be overwhelming.   It's easy to see how your own personal health takes a back seat when there are so many things to juggle.  But mornings are crucial to the rest of your day and your overall health.  If you can master your morning routine, you're set for a successful day that's less stressful, more productive, and more healthy overall.    H...


     Are you focusing on the fire?  Or just managing the smoke?  I love using the fire analogy when it comes to describing chronic disease.  Fire requires fuel to burn and grow.  When the conditions are right, a fueled fire burns out of control.  In order to effectively put out the fire, you must target the source of the flame and remove the fuel.  The same is true in chronic disease. 

     When you have diabetes, cancer, obesity, heart disease, autoimmune disease, high blood pressure or any other chronic disease, you essentially have an out of control fire.  In order to extinguish that fire, you must target the root cause of that fire.  There may be many root causes to address.  But, seeking out and targeting all the root causes will allow you to actually reverse symptoms and improve quality of life.   



     According to the NIH National Cancer Institute, the lifetime risk of developing cancer for all men and women is approximately 39.3 percent and in 2016, there were an estimated 15,338,988 people living with cancer in the United States.   Survival is improving and many cancers are being diagnosed at an earlier stage making treatment more effective.  The majority of cancers develop slowly over time and are diagnosed after the age of sixty.  It can take ten to thirty years for cancer to develop, and that means there are lots of opportunities to interrupt the process!   In general, you start out with one rogue cancer cell and when the environment is right, that cell can multiply and eventually support the growth of a tumor.   

     It is estimated that 90 to 95 percent of all cancers are related to lifestyle and environment and only 5 to 10 percent of cancers are related to genetic mutations (https://ww...
