Top 3 Tips To Survive This Years Holiday Season

Nov 29, 2021

I have a handful of patients who are entering the holiday season fearful of losing all the progress they have made over the past few months.  Many have lost weight, decreased inflammation in their bodies and regulated hormones.

In my opinion, the health of the digestive tract is the center of health.

It’s that time of year to get your parents, children, friends, family, coworkers and enemies all on vitamin D. We say this every year but it is definitely one that deserves the repetition, especially since every year I see my patients not supplementing adequately.

Oct 28, 2021

When it comes to the symptoms of inflammation there are many which are commonly recognized. Bloating, loose bowels, constipation, skin disorders like Eczema, weight gain, fatigue, poor concentration and joint pain are all easily recognizable as possible inflammatory conditions.
