     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...

     We are obsessed with calories.  Hey, I’m as guilty as the next guy.  I spent years thinking and worrying about calories.  I would slowly turn a box of food-like substance over to find the dreaded Nutrition Facts panel and cry a little inside when I saw the calorie content of my favorite foods.  I spent who knows how many hours of my life entering my food intake into MyFitnessPal hoping to keep my calorie intake to a certain level every day.  It…was…EXHAUSTING.  And unnecessary. 

     About 2 years ago, I really started changing the way I viewed and consumed food.  I have an autoimmune disease, psoriatic arthritis, and I had to change what I was eating.  I thought I had a pretty healthy diet before.  Afterall, I counted my calories!  I thought if my calories in matched my calories out, then I was going to live forever AND be thin!  I was so wrong, and not alone.  I have talked to so many people who are trying to do the right thing for the...

     I get a lot of requests for simple, healthy dinner ideas.  Most of us have breakfast and lunch covered, but dinner seems to be in a league of its own.  There's no shortage of recipes online, but sometimes it's overwhelming to search.  And trying to determine what's healthy and what's not so healthy can be so confusing.  So, I've compiled a list of ten of my favorite recipes that anyone can make.  They're simple, quick, and cost efficient.  If you make any of these, post a picture and tag us.  We'd love to see your interpretation.

     I once read that “disease enters through the mouth.”  I’m not sure where this originated, but it’s striking and true.  All the chronic diseases we face today are a result of what’s being put into our bodies.  We are surrounded by toxins in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat.   The human body can only withstand this type of assault for a finite period of time.  The symptoms may start out slowly, but once the body becomes overwhelmed, the symptoms make you feel as if your body is at war. This sounds ominous, but I’m going to share how we can use nutrition as a weapon in this war. 

Think about how you feel every day.  Do any of the words below describe you?

  1. Tired

  2. Excessive fatigue

  3. Lack of motivation

  4. Joint pain

  5. Muscle pain

  11. Depressed

  12. Skin issues

  13. Dist...

     How often do you find yourself trying to remember what you ate for breakfast?  Are there times when you scarf down your lunch and don’t even remember how it tasted?  Maybe you didn’t even enjoy one bite because your mind was thinking about the ten things you needed to accomplish before you could leave work, rather than enjoying your meal.  How many of us have sat on the couch with a bag of potato chips or carton of ice cream, mindlessly stuffing ourselves without even thinking about it?       

      Of course, there is the other end of the spectrum too.   Do you restrict yourself in an attempt to lose weight, only to end up binging on the foods you’ve avoided?  Do you have negative feelings about eating certain foods or punish yourself for thinking about eating “bad” foods?    I have spoken with countless patients, clients, family members, and friends over the past 16 years and I’ve decided that almost every one of us...
