New: International Shipping of Umbrellux DAO!

I get emails from people in Canada, England, Australia, countries in Central and South America and even Singapore. The Internet has no boundaries, but there are limitations on being able to ship nutrition supplements to other countries. Each country has their own customs regulations. That’s why I’m so excited that I am now able to ship the histamine degrading enzyme supplement, Umbrellux DAO, internationally. DAO...

New Alzheimer’s Research: Nicotinamide Ribos...

Neuroscientists at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and researchers at the National Institute on Aging recently showed that supplementation with nicotinamide riboside (a NAD+ precursor) improved cognitive function in a mouse model closely resembling Alzheimer’s. They attributed the results to the restoration of brain plasticity, a key aspect of neuronal learning and memory storage. In addition, the NAD+ was...

Detoxification – Pathways and Key Nutrients

The body detoxifies in 2 phases and good nutrition is essential for ridding of these wastes. I work with clients to support these processes by making sure they are getting enough of these nutrients through diet and if needed, targeted supplements.

Protect Yourself from Effects of Wi-Fi

Our Wi-Fi world poses some serious health consequences to all of us. Infants and young children, even the unborn are most vulnerable. I have been doing a lot of research in this area and integrating it into my nutrition practice and I plan to write more about nutrition solutions to counter EMFs (electromagnetic fields) and their effects on our cells. (Wi-Fi is one type of EMF).   I am also now working with GIA Wellness...

Optimizing Cancer Survivorship with Nutrition

Both western medicine and integrative medicine have come so far in fighting cancer, keeping it in remission and even eradicating it. Most cancer survivors also known as “Thrivers” have years and full lives ahead of them after conventional treatments like surgery, chemotherapy or radiation. Cancer Survivorship Nutrition Research clearly shows that Thrivers have unique nutritional needs. Meeting these needs is a...

Juicing – What a Difference a Generation Mak...

Not that long ago, juicers and professional blenders used to be for the “granola” crowd. With so many people juicing or making smoothies and protein shakes today, it’s hard to imagine that a generation ago it was somewhat stigmatized. In the mid-1980’s, I was a consultant to the Acme Juicer Manufacturing Company, a subsidiary of Waring. My job, as a nutritionist and Registered Dietitian, was to...
