This could not be more true today than it was 17 years ago. I wasn't a parent then. Now I have three kids. We typically host and aren’t traveling to Ohio for Thanksgiving anymore. The food is mostly the same, the crowd is different. But it’s still my favorite holiday. I wrote this article about a habit that still, if in place, will reduce your holiday weight gain or even prevent it. Guaranteed. This article was published in Seattle in 2006! - I was even interviewed on NPR about it. I guess it resonated with more than just me!
Something is changing right now. It is going to keep dropping for a while. But even after it starts rising again, you’ll need to keep taking this vitamin for at least another 4 months. Unless you live
There are a lot of things people attribute to aging. Poor memory is definitely one of them. What most people don’t realize is that your habits have a lot to do with how your memory works. They also think that Alzheimer’s and dementia are hereditary. 50% of dementia is caused by
What would happen if you had a number of symptoms and went to the right specialist to have each issue addressed. BUT, what if all of those symptoms were actually caused by the same thing? Yikes. Each specialist will diagnose you with a different ailment, with the potential of 5 or more prescriptions. Here is an example
You know how kids have temper tantrums? Or they seem to have an inability to handle life the moment they leave school (but they’re pretty good at holding it together until then). You may not be a parent with young kids, or a parent at all, but we’ve all been kids, had siblings or been around kids enough to know what I’m talking about. And the truth is, adults are not much different than kids when it comes to what they need to handle the daily stresses of life. Three questions to ask yourself when it comes to your mood or someone else’s.
There is something I hear over and over and have considered it relevant for years now. There is
one obvious experience I’ve had of my own. This one thing is something of doubt and
skepticism for many people. I happen to think it’s the most essential thing to healing now, more
than I ever have before. It’s not what we eat, the water we drink, the supplements we take or the
exercise we engage in. It’s intangible. And don’t get me wrong all of that is important. But this is the elephant in the room. The thing people don’t want to address, or thing they don’t even
know is relevant to address.
Meet Julie. She has lost 50 pounds in the last 5 ½ months. Starting out at the beginning of March Julie would say she was:
Tired much of the time,
In terrible pain in many places in her body,
Unable to exercise,
She weighed the most she had ever weighed in her life. And had been using ibuprofen to manage her pain.
She is currently 8 pounds below her goal weight. How has this happened?

For me it started in middle school. It was awful. It could last for months on end. And I had no idea that I was just making it worse. It is so common that it is likely that either you or someone in your family has it. And there is such a simple solution, but almost no one knows about it.

The average thyroid gland weighs about as much as a tablespoon of almond butter. But the thyroid gland, unlike almond butter, has an almost infinite impact on the way your body functions.
Every single cell in your body has thyroid receptors. If you don’t have enough thyroid hormone, there are things in your body that just won’t work. Like an unplugged toaster, it’s not going to work no matter what you do. It will only work if you plug it in - just like your cells, they will only work if they’ve got some thyroid hormones plugged in.
