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!

CoEnzyme Q-10: Clearing up the Confusion

Many of us already have heard about Coenzyme-Q10, the natural antioxidant synthesized by the body, found in many foods, and available in supplement form.

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.

Stress: Don’t Let It Make You Sick

The ff. is  excerpted directly from Elizabeth Agnvall’s article in the November 2014 AARP Bulletin.  It is worth repeating.

Scientists have long known that stress complicates a host of health problems.  Now they are discovering that chronic stress–a mainstay of modern life–doesn’t merely exacerbate disease, it actually can cause it.
