Support Your Detox Pathways While You Cleanse!

Spring is in the air and with that some spring-cleaning! After de-cluttering and vacuuming the house make sure to spend some time detoxing your body as well! We are constantly bombarded with toxins and pollutants in the air, food, and water. Luckily our bodies are primed to deal with these sorts of burdens but it is critical to help support it.

The Low-Down on Heavy Metals

Heavy metal toxicity is an issue that exists alongside many other health conditions and diagnoses.  Many of my autistic-spectrum patients have heavy metal toxicity, many of my Lyme disease patients have heavy metal toxicity, but I would bet that many people without any official diagnosis have high levels of heavy metals in their bodies that may be affecting their neurological function.  With the pollution surrounding us today, heavy metals are a part of the environment.   There are a few […]

The Three Pillars of Health and Disease

Pre-Conception Care Timelines

It is estimated that roughly 40% of all pregnancies in the United States are unplanned. Those that are planned actually start preparation for a healthy baby after conception has already taken place. In the biological sense the life process, and the hazard to development of the life process, begins about 100 days before conception, when both the male and female germ cells (sperm and egg) begin their maturation process. It is at this time that both the sperm and the […]
