10 Probiotic-Rich Foods to Supercharge Your Health

August 26, 2015

Most people know that yogurt (at least the unsweetened kind with live cultures) is a healthy option but few people consider the many other foods rich in beneficial bacteria or yeasts that help boost health.  Based on my new book, The Probiotic Promise:  Simple Steps to Heal Your Body from the Inside Out, here are 10 of my favorite probiotic-rich picks to add to your diet. 

Cheese:  Some cheeses offer probiotics, including:  yogurt cheese (made from straining yogurt through a cheesecloth to thicken it) and some unpasteurized dairy-free cheeses made through the addition of probiotic cultures (see The Probiotic Promise:  Simple Steps to Heal Your Body from the Inside Out for recipe…

The Truth about Xanthan (and Many Gluten-Free Foods)

August 19, 2015

Is your gluten-free bread safe to eat?

July 22, 2015

Taking a nature walk can boost your mental health.

Have you had your daily dose of trees, flowers, and shrubs?  No, I don’t mean in the form of herbal medicine, although there are countless studies supporting the use of herbalism in our daily lives.  I’m referring to spending time communing with nature.  We all know that spending time in nature just feels great but thanks to a new study published in the medical journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, there are more reasons than ever to get outdoors and spend time in nature:  the experience transforms your brain and reduces your risk of mental illness.

Is an Anti-Cancer Wonder Drug Growing on Your Front Lawn?

July 5, 2015

If you walk past my home you’ll know if from the dandelions that grow rampant on the front lawn.  While neighbors continue to douse the yellow flowers with pesticides, like Monsanto’s Round-Up, which have been shown to cause cancer, I prefer to let the resilient and prevalent flowers grow.  That’s because, in addition to dandelion’s excellent nutritional benefits, it is increasingly being shown in research to have potent anti-cancer properties.  

One of the most exciting studies about dandelion’s anti-cancer abilities was published in the journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine.  The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Winds…
