On returning home from vacation a few years ago, my staff communicated to me that the substitute doctor said he felt like he was a podiatrist while covering for me!

I was accused of having no heart because I had gut month over Valentine’s Day instead of heart month! Hey at least I have guts :) But guess what-your guts can sense and feel too! In fact, your gut is considered the second brain. The Vagus nerve (cranial nerve 10) comes out of your skull and slips [...]
This week we delve a bit deeper into gut health. I love this topic because it is one that patients can really own, but it takes some time. Healing any condition takes time. The length of time can go up and down based on your habits ranging from how you think to what you eat. [...]
Some of you might be thinking, “What’s next after the Detox?" Many people are still partaking in the detox which is great, but remember health is an infinite game, as is detoxing. Yes the detox gave you a jump start on what your body is supposed to be doing 24/7/365 but the best way to stay ahead [...]
