Let’s Talk Heart to Heart

Today I want to talk to you heart to heart.  This a subject close to my heart.  My father died of a heart attack at the age of 64 and had open heart surgery when he was 51.  Many of his 9 brothers and sisters died prematurely from some form of cardiovascular disease from heart attacks, strokes or aneurysms.  This is one of many reasons I am a health advocate. Did you know 1 out of every 3 deaths in the US is caused by some form of cardiovascular disease? The AHA (American Heart Association) also estimates that an average of 92.1 million Americans are living with some form of cardiovascular disease or… Read More

It is estimated that three out of four foods are genetically modified. Many European countries have already banned GMO’s, but our own Food and Drug Administration (FDA) states they are not harmful. In fact, as far back as… Read More

Why Does Gut Health Matter?

Can your digestive system or gut, as it is often referred to, be a reflection of your overall health?  It most certainly can be and likely is.  Good health starts with stress management and a healthy digestive system.  Eating the wrong foods devoid of good nutrition will play havoc with your health.  It is just a matter of when.  Much of our food today has been genetically modified, laced in pesticides, and then is further altered into packaged foods full of preservatives and chemicals.  Sadly, when you look at many food labels today there are many things on the ingredient list that you can’t pronounce and belong in a chemistry… Read More

Who Should Be Taking Vitamin D3?

Some of you have inquired about Vitamin D3, so I thought I would go into detail about some of its benefits and who should be taking Vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 is one vitamin most of us should be taking. Why is that?  Because there is a significantly large amount of research that shows that most of us have low vitamin D levels and that vitamin D has many protective health benefits.
