How can I help you?

    Keto-Alkaline (Keto-Green™) Diet

    Women ask me all the time if Keto-Green nutrition works for men. You bet it does! In fact, I devote an entire chapter to this in my new book. It can help them lose weight and gain in other, ahem, areas.

    My Vegan Keto-Green 16 diet is low-carb, high in healthy plant fats, and moderate in plant proteins. Like my regular Keto-Green diet, it has powerful effects on weight loss and overall health. Vegetarians of all types can join in too. So can meat-lovers who’d like to fast from animal products—a strategy that I support and feel is very beneficial.
    Like you, I’m busy. I have four daughters, a business to run, a heavy lecture schedule, books and blogs to write... Need I say more? Your life may not look like mine, but I bet we’ve got hectic-ness in common!

    Before developing type 2 diabetes, most people will usually have “prediabetes” – meaning that glucose levels are higher than normal, but not yet elevated enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. With prediabetes, damage to the body has already set in, especially in the heart and circulatory system. So it’s important to take action as soon as you get this diagnosis.  

    The good news is, with my Keto-Green diet, featured in my new bookKeto-Green16™, diabetes is manageable, even reversible, and can be prevented altogether.

    Many of us are experiencing high levels of anxiety right now. Some of us are homeschooling children while juggling work, some of us are out of work, and many of us are feeling general underlying anxiety related to this virus pandemic. Anxiety can feel a lot worse when your hormones are changing and out of balance. Here I share the protocol I used with my client Doris, who was experiencing perimenopause and struggling with high levels of anxiety. 

    We are both stressed and blessed right now. Whether we realize what’s happening right now or not, many of us are struggling with traumas of one form or another. Some of us are juggling homeschooling our children with work. Many of us are out of work—we are worried about our families, and missing our friends but we can always keep a solid foundation within ourselves. 

    On a more uplifting note, we are also coming together on social media and having virtual meetups, and workouts. We are shopping for our neighbors, walking with our family, sharing funny memes, and connecting with people we might not have connected with given the “busy” of life prior to these shifts. We are lifting each other up. 

    Fears of the coronavirus have confined people all over the country in order to slow the spread of the infection, and governors of some states have asked people to self-quarantine as a preventive measure. I, too, had to self-quarantine my own family. Slowly, I began to see the recommended 14 days as a blessing in disguise. If you’re self-quarantined or thinking you might have to, don’t lose hope. Just hold strong, do the best you can, and try to find that silver lining, because it’s there. In this blog, I’ve put together my tips for productive, hopeful living during this time – all based on my experience and what I know from the science available for the coronavirus.
    With the coronavirus spreading through communities, there’s a lot of talk about important measures like hand-washing, social distancing, and not touching our faces or shaking hands. Yes, we should be practicing all of these, for sure.
    The Coronavirus pandemic has put us on alert. I know this is affecting all of us in one way or another.  My daughter Amira came home from her university in Holland and I now have her quarantined. Oh, believe me it was so hard to greet her at the airport and not hug her!
    Brain fog – it’s that thick cloud of confusion that impairs your concentration and your ability to remember things. I know because I’ve had it. I’d walk into a room, and think “I came in here for a reason. What was it?” The first time it hit me, I was convinced something sinister was in play.
