Creating Lasting Change - Choosing Love Over Fear

Are you stuck in poor eating habits and the endless cycle of yo-yo dieting? You try to change but the busy-ness of everyday life and resulting stress suck you back into the vortex of familiar eating and thought patterns, and there seems to be no escape. You wind up blaming yourself, thinking you lack the willpower or discipline to make effective change, or you blame other people or things. Either way, nothing changes. Is there a way out?

Simplify, Nourish, Enrich

If I asked you what is holding you back from being as healthy as you can be, what would you say? No time to shop and cook meals from scratch. I eat healthy already. There’s nothing wrong with me, I feel fine. My doctor says I’m good at this weight. Are these truly your beliefs or merely excuses? For the average person without dramatic health problems, finding true health and wellness isn’t as difficult or time-consuming as you may think, and it starts with a straightforward concept:...


When Food Becomes the Enemy

Food is nourishment, fuel, comfort, our daily bread. It helps us grow, brings us health, draws people together, can be simple or pretentious. Yet one man’s meat is another man’s poison.

When someone has a food allergy, whether it’s severe or mild, the reaction is immediate and...

You’re burning way more than you’re consuming and yet your plan isn’t working. You’re revving up the sluggish metabolism you were genetically burdened with as much as you can, but now you’re ready to give up. If this doesn’t work, what’s left? Oh, to have the metabolism of a hummingbird! My guest, Tonda...


Gut Reaction: The Decline of Digestive Health

Heartburn, bloating, cramping, gassiness, indigestion, and elimination problems. Sound like a job for a thick pink liquid? That may temporarily help with the symptoms but it isn’t getting at the underlying digestive problems that can easily become chronic and are often mis- or self-diagnosed. When the digestive system isn’t working properly, we suffer in so many ways, not just with physical discomfort. It affects the way we physically and chemically break down food, absorb nutrients and...


When Food Consumes You

You are intelligent and educated. You manage a household and a job, career or business. You have a social life, activities, family and friends. You are also the manager of you; what you eat should be the easy part and yet food is in control of you. It doesn’t seem fair to reduce this complex scenario to two words, emotional eating, but that’s what we call it. When did it start? Who is to blame? Why is it so seemingly impossible to overcome? Is there a solution? My guest, holistic...
