Kicking Dairy: Why Bother?

Throughout my 22 years of taking care of people, I’ve seen a lot of addictive behaviors. Particularly around food. Most common: chocolate, cheese, caffeine, flour, sugar, taken to anesthetize.

Royal Hormones

Kate is a Perfect Hormonal Specimen. Overly reductionistic? Perhaps. While I don’t have royal fever, I relished watching a video of Kate Middleton have her day in the limelight.

Countdown… To Your Hormone Cure!

Most Americans are now unable to stop eating refined sweets and starches. Why? Because these foods are actually more addictive than alcohol or drugs! No joke.
