Food & Community – Why Eating Together Leads to Better Health

 

By Amanda Miller MS, RN

Throughout the history of human evolution, eating has always been a social event – or at least it used to be. The majority of Americans spend their meals apart from others, in front of their computer, TVs, in their cars, or grabbing something to-go. Not taking the time to sit down to eat with family and friends is costing us our health.  Conviviality pours from the social benefits of social eating ...

Love Your Gut

 

By Bren Boston, MD

The human body is a marvelous contraption, but it certainly is not a modern one.  It developed ages ago before there were twinkies and McDonalds.  The human gut is the passageway for us to give our cells the nutrients they require to survive, and if we are mindful, to thrive.  This passageway was not meant to endure a constant flow of carbonated, highly sweetened, artificially colored phosphoric acid, otherwise known as cola.

Our gut is more than ...

Packing Healthy Lunches for our Kids

 

Maggie Ney, ND

It’s time to pack up school lunches again.  I do not hear many parents talking about the joy of packing lunches in the morning – the mornings are crazy and lunch packing is one of the first tasks that need to get checked off of our morning to do list.

What can Nutritional IV Therapy do for me?

 

By Jean-Marc Sobczyk ND, MD Licensed Naturopathic Doctor

Vitamins are necessary for the optimal function of our bodies and minds. Most vitamins and minerals are not produced by the body but are absorbed from the food we eat, but intensive methods of farming, intense processing have reduced the levels of nutrients in food significantly.
