The Life Saving Benefits of Optimal Nutrition

  Cheryl has been a long time client of mine. Being as she is a relatively happy and healthy yoga instructor, I was taken completely off guard when she came to see me just a few months ago.

Her situation had grown increasingly unbearable to the point where somedays she could barely even get up in the morning. Cheryl refused to give up on herself. She...

New Research Links Cell Phones to Cancer

We've been talking about the overwhelming evidence that cell phone RF radiation is dangerous for awhile now, but a government-funded 15-year study just made it official. The National Toxicology Program (NTP), a division of the National Institutes for Health, determined that cell phone radiation exposure caused significant tumor growth in rats. Christoper Portier, the now-retired head of the NTP who launched the study, responded to the study with concern.

A Glimpse Into Long-Term Weight Loss, Thanks to Reality TV

But more importantly, the study paints a clearer picture of why weight loss can't be effectively achieved with gimmicky diets, no matter how bold the claims are.
