Supplementing your health

  Want to know a semi-secret? I’m not a big supplement-pusher, and pills actually make me gag. And psssttt…in my search for solutions to my previous health problems, I consulted with what feels like hundreds of so-called experts who, instead of asking me about my diet, recommended hundreds of dollars worth of supplements. I used to have drawers full of vitamins, but it wasn’t until I truly figured out my Nutritional Style that I found relief from my health issues, lost weight and began to feel amazing again. When I became a Health and Nutrition Coach, I decided to do things differently. While I do recommend some selected supplements, because my clients sometimes have deficiencies or feel better with them, my focus is on food and how you feel. The time when I DO recommend supplementation is in the winter months, when local produce is scarce and when our bodies have to work harder to fight off colds, flus and defend itself against the cold and lack of sunshine. If you or your family seems to get sick often, maybe it’s time to supplement your nutrition. Here’s what’s on my personal supplement shelf now. Elderberry: This tasty herb is antiviral…

Sleep for Weight Loss and more

Are you tired, and finding it tough to rise and shine like usual? You may be tuning in to age-old programming to get more sleep, now, in the darker, colder winter. My friend, you need your rest. For thousands of years before us, our ancestors slept more during the cold months to conserve energy, and because there wasn’t much else to do. In today’s world, we need good quality rest more than ever, especially this time of year. Add in holiday parties, alcohol, sugar, the stress of family visits and gift giving, and your sleep had better improve, right away. The consequences of sleep deprivation can be severe. A lack of sleep can lead to memory loss, confusion, an inability to make smart decisions, aging skin, stress, and even weight gain. And while losing a few hours here and there might not be as serious as all that, eventually they do add up. Consistently getting less sleep can increase the production of ghrelin, the hormone that tells your brain what to eat. At the same time, leptin, the hormone that helps you know when you are full, doesn’t work as well when you’re tired. That means that you’ll likely eat…

Your Body’s PH and YOU

Craving more meat and animal protein in the colder weather? You’re not alone. Many people do this time of year. And yet venturing too far down that path may not be the best for your health for many reasons. Excessive meat consumption has been linked to higher cancer rates, heart disease, and digestive disorders. Meat takes longer than most foods to digest, and has a longer transit time in your digestive system than plant-based foods, like vegetables, fruits or seeds. And then there’s the pH theory of nutrition. Animal proteins create an acidic environment in your body as they are digested, and your body neutralizes in order to maintain the slightly alkaline environment it prefers. Because your body likes to be slightly alkaline, if you eat too many foods that are acidic, it will scramble to return itself to the right pH balance. Your pH is the number that measures how acidic or alkaline something is (A pH of 7 is neutral). Maintaining a proper pH is important for digestion, energy, clear skin, and your overall well being. It’s surprisingly easy to re-balance, however, so don’t despair. If you’ve been splurging this season, try to incorporate the following alkaline foods…
