I’ll use the example of breast cancer, though almost any chronic disease has some basis in an inflammatory reaction. Breast

I’ll bet you didn’t know that anxiety can originate from your gut. But it can. I’ll cut to the chase and give my advice: TAKE A QUALITY PROBIOTIC NEARLY EVERY DAY, THEN SWITCH BRANDS IN 3 MONTHS. Now to explain myself. The good bacteria meant to live and thrive in your intestine

Most of you know melatonin as nature’s sleep hormone. But did you really think that this wonderful hormone (as well as all your hormones) has only one or two functions? Think again! The fact is that most of your hormones have dozens if not hundreds of functions. So, what’s the story with

Last week November 5, 2011 we completed the 2ndannual St Louis Integrative Medicine Symposium (SLiiM).

The art of what I do involves assessing the whole health picture of an individual as relates to hormone balance. I enjoy explaining what is going on to my patients. When I reach the part about DHEA, eyes begin to glaze over. Nobody seems to have heard of DHEA. Where did our

On Sunday October 9, I had the good fortune of meeting TV celebrity chef Alton Brown. He was in St Louis, MO signing books for his latest production GOOD EATS 3: THE LATER YEARS. Alton is both an entertainer and a well researched chef educating his viewers and fans on the science
