Fertility and progesterone, a lovely success story

I recently interviewed a 36 year old woman and wanted to share her beautiful story.
It is a story of self-discovery and self-education. It is also the story of the heart-wrenching loss of a newborn, but also, a story of future hope for more children.
Nikki has a 4 year old daughter and a 15 month old son, and they are hoping for another in the future. In between the two she had been pregnant with a baby girl and went into preterm labor …

Bucketlists and an emotional visit to Lourdes

I’m back from Barcelona!
And wanted to share my trip with you. Highlights? Definitely my pilgrimage to Lourdes, where 10 years ago I prayed for a healthy pregnancy.

What men need to know about healthy testosterone levels

Finally it’s the men’s turn!
And yes, estrogen will still be an important topic…even for you men…but let’s start with the male hormone that you are most familiar with, Testosterone.
Low T is a common male issue (which is commonly ignored)

Mentally detoxing! Where will you shine your flashlight today?

We’ve been talking for a while now about how important detox is in order to balance hormones and maintain optimal health, and how my Keto-Alkaline™ Diet provides a great foundation for physical detoxification.

Keto diets work. Even among patients initially doubtful, once they get into ketosis and see impressive, gratifying, often times instant results, they become believers.
