I am so loving the weather right now! It’s almost hard to sit and write this blog post. But I do want to give you an update and share some information with you.
This May, I will be traveling to New Jersey to teach at the American College of Integrative Medicine and Dentistry. I always enjoy teaching, but this is special group of people who I can really identify with. For those who don’t know, I started my professional career working as a dental assistant. This was in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Let me tell you, dentistry has come a long way! However, I would never call it a healthy field to work in. For some dentists they have spent years working with replacing amalgam fillings, being exposed to chemicals they use in their field and hearing EVERY day - “Don’t take this personally, but I hate dentists!”
All the participants are learning how to better offer holistic health to their...
Beautiful Spring view from this past weekend. I was in Atlanta at the National TACA (The Autism Community in Action) conference. The hot topics were eliminating EMF's and using CBD to support Autism and other health issues.
As most of you know, I am an Autism Mom and when my son was born in 1993 very few healthcare practitioners were talking about Autism. It was as if there was a black hole of information and support. Even getting a diagnosis took years.
A fellow practitioner and conference buddy asked me if I had to give just 5 supporting tips for those working with Autism as a parent, teacher or practitioner, what would I suggest? Great question because over the years we tried many diets, modalities, supplements, testing, physical therapies, schools/educational practices, etc. Some just didn't help much, others were needle movers and we saw great improvement.
Note: Every person on the Autism spectrum varies greatly...

What I am watching: Netflix, “Root Cause”
This documentary is one person’s health journey which led him to discover root canal toxicity. He interviews practitioners and professionals from around the world to bring awareness to the fact that only in the field of dentistry is there a procedure to keep dead tissue connected to the body and the toxicity this leads to has been linked to serious health consequences.

Happy New Year's Eve! I know you may be getting ready to go out and about but I wanted to reach out to you before you start ringing in the new year. Are you thinking about new goals, resolutions or just planning on sitting back and toasting the new year in with champagne? Whatever you choose, I wanted to wish you a happy and healthy new year and to share with you what I will be doing today - Dowsing my 2019 goals.
Before the ball drops (or the crown here in Charlotte, NC) I like to find time to close out the year. I find comfort in rituals of wellness and this is one of my favorites. Here are the supplies I will be using:
During this one...
Spring Keto Celebration
It’s Springtime and that means everything is in bloom. I’ve been busy in the kitchen cooking up a delicious Spring keto dessert. It takes a little time, but not too much and the results are great. I used the Simple Mills Vanilla cake mix and put it in my silicone donut molds and baked for 15-18 min at 350 F in the oven. Let cool then remove from mold and place on parchment paper to fill and assemble.
3-4 lemons = 1/2/ cup of lemon juice
Zest from one lemon
1/3 C. Lakanto Powdered Monkfruit Sweetener
4 egg yolks
1/3 C. Unsalted butter cut into cubes
In a glass bowl mix the egg yolks, Lakanto, lemon zest and lemon juice. Whisk together. Place over a pan of simmering water and whisk for 8-10 min (until the curd has thickened. Take off heat and whisk in cubes of butter until smooth. Let cool.
4 egg whites
1/4 tsp. Cream of Tartart
1/3 C. Lakanto Powdered Monkfruit Sweetener
Happy October! I know, I’m late getting this out ~ I have no idea where the time has gone. October is conference month which means just about every weekend I’ve been out at conferences (including this one). In fact, I’m in my hotel room now typing this because I wanted to update everyone on what is going on at LTS (Life-Thyme Solutions).
First, I have taken on the position of Director of Education for Marco Pharma International, LLC. Those who know me, understand how highly I value education. I now have an even larger opportunity to share knowledge and experience with practitioners utilizing natural remedies. It’s a very exciting time but it will limit my consultation availability.
Second, I want to remind you that the Be The Healer class is an online class anyone can purchase and take. It’s the cornerstone of what I educate clients on when they consult me about their health. How to get started? What...
Happy mid-August! I hope this email finds you healthy and well.
In today's political hot topic of healthcare, it pays to be informed about current health issues, your own health history and to know how to self-monitor with simple biomarkers.
I get asked a lot about what products to use when making healthy choices. While my suggestions always change as I learn and grow, I have put together an Amazon link list on my website where you will find most of the resources I like to use to monitor my own health. You can find the page here: STORE
Some of you may know this already, but I believe the choices we make towards health should be for our own personal benefit. This means, for example, if Ketogenic diet works best for me, Paleo or Mediterranean might work best for you. The key is to find out what works for you. Have you done that yet? If not, you may want to start with the Be The Healer Journal where you can begin to keep...
This is the first week of August and here in Eugene, Oregon we are expected to hit triple digits on the thermometer! Not to mention that August 21st will bring the Solar Eclipse with prime views from our little town. These are momentous events for Eugenians. What do I suggest for such events? Keeping a record by journaling!
Which brings me to the big announcement: I have created a companion journal which works as a complement to the online Be The Healer wellness program or can be used stand-alone. For those who have watched the 4x20 Magic Morning you will see I suggest journaling for 20 minutes every morning, but I also journal every evening. So, the new Be The Healer Journal has space for both.
If you are in Eugene you can stop by the office and pick one up in person. They make wonderful and thoughtful gifts too. So if you or anyone you know would like a new journal you can click...
Summer is synonymous with vacation. This is the time of year when many Americans start their travels. Where will you go? Do your travel choices follow destinations, family or friends?
According to the U.S. Travel Association:
For those who want to stay healthy during travel, there are a few tips and tricks I like to practice. As you can see from above, visiting relatives is the number one top leisure travel activity for Americans. This can be a tricky thing. Relatives are not always on board with healthy lifestyle choices and the biggest issue I hear about is FOOD.
For my body and lifestyle I choose to eat low carb, high fat and moderate protein with most of my carbs coming from berries and a wide variety of vegetables. This works for me, but doesn't always work when...
How do you recharge? If you are like most Americans you work hard, play hard and most of the time you have to schedule "me-time". However, this is my birthday month and it's a big one (cough- fifty- gulp). So I decided to try the whole vacation thing.
I wrote this as you see me in the picture above - relaxed in Mykonos, Greece at a garden taverna with sunshine dancing through the trees and birdsong all around.
Now I am definitely not one to slow down. Vacationing usually revolves around a business trip as if I have to justify it. Alright full disclosure after vacation I AM teaching for two days in New Jersey and meeting with practitioners. But that is a week away. For now I am trying to remember why I don't do this more often.
Americans tend to have the most unused vacation time in the world. What is wrong with us? I teach holistic health and in doing so I have found myself coming up short in living a holistically...
