What is Intestinal Permeability (Leaky Gut)?
Hundreds of books are being written about intestinal permeability, or “leaky gut.” I want to share with you the great explanation my mentor Dr. Tom O’Bryan wrote in The Autoimmune Fix.
Recommended Books To Help You On Your Healing Journey
In addition to staying up to date on research for my Nutritional Balancing program, I spend another 40 hours a month reading additional research. Here are some books I have read (and re-read!) for you to read as you progress on your healing journey:
Genius Foods – by Max Lugavere with Paul Grewal MD
The End of Alzheimer’s – by Dale E. Bredesen MD
The Loving Diet – by Jessica Flanigan CN
The Wahls Protocol – by Terry Wahls MD
Perfect Health Diet – by Paul and Shou-Ching Jaminet, PhDs
Grain Brain – by David Perlmutter, MD
Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis – by Izabella Wentz, PharmD
Food: What the Heck Should I Eat? – by Mark Hyman, MD
The Autoimmune Fix – by Tom O’Bryan, DC, CCN, DACBN
Sauna Therapy For Detoxification & Healing – by Lawrence Wilson, MD
The last 17 years have been unparalleled in human history with an explosion of quality medical research! Unfortunately, it takes an average of 17 years for this research to trickle down to a conventional medicine doctor’s office. Fortunately for us, this new information is coming out right now through books and lectures.
May you read well & be well!

Minerals: Our Source of Life
Minerals are perhaps the most important groups of nutrients human beings require. Unlike some vitamins, for example, minerals cannot be made inside the body and must come from our diet, supplements or drinking water. Minerals regulate most bodily functions by participating in all chemical compounds in our bodies. They also form the structure of the body.

Nutritional Balancing Science
Hooray, I have finished my academic studies and graduated with honors as a certified Nutritional Balancing practitioner! I am so happy to become a legal nutritional consultant, as I have been unofficially advising some of you about food as far back as 1985.
Along with my own 30-year journey studying food as medicine, I also have my clients to thank for motivating me to study the fascinating science of Nutritional Balancing. It is an extraordinary program that originated in the 1940s with Dr. Paul Eck from the University of Chicago and is carried on today by Dr. Lawrence Wilson.
