Roasted Vegetable and Chicken Soup

  Every summer, it’s so hot and miserable I find myself eagerly awaiting winter, a time of year when my clothes won’t stick to my skin and my hair won’t be a frizzy mess, my makeup melting off my face every time I leave the house. And of course, as soon as winter comes around, I instantly regret ever looking forward to it. It’s so ...

Are You a Giver or a Taker? (And How Does it Impact Your Health?)

One particular topic has come up for me in my life recently — in an, “oh, sh*t!” hit-you-like-a-ton-of-bricks way — that has also been a theme in recent sessions with my clients.

Whether you find yourself in the strictest phase of an elimination diet like the Autoimmune Protocol or just trying to make good dietary choices to prevent future disease, ...

Apple and Turmeric Jellies

  We’re very fond of jellies in our house. And when they’re made with healing ingredients such as these, there is every reason to make them a regular treat. Turmeric has a well known list of uses in the medicine cabinet — anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and balancer of the digestive system, metabolism and hormones to name but a few. Because it’s a little on the bitter side, ...

Could Exercise Intolerance Be Impacting Your Recovery?

  Ok, so you have done all the things right. You are following the AIP diet and it’s working. You are feeling better. You are drinking water. You are exercising. But you are still having setbacks. And you are still having flare-ups. Believe it or not, it could actually be your exercise that is hurting rather than helping you. You see, we have always been ...

Combining AIP with Conventional Healthcare: The Definitive Guide

A little clarity… I’m specifically exploring the whats, whys, and hows of combining AIP with conventional healthcare here. I realize that much of what is outlined could also be accomplished with natural or functional practitioners, but due to insurance restrictions, legal regulations in some states, or financial limitations, many people are not able to utilize natural or functional medicine. The purpose is not to overlook ...
