'My Candida Was Hungry, So I Fed It Pizza and Beer'

(0) Comments | Posted March 19, 2015 | 9:26 AM

My friend said that to me recently, and I laughed out loud. She wasn't joking, either.

Ever had food cravings? Felt like you'd fight someone for the first and last piece of pizza? Felt like if you didn't eat that entire pint of ice cream you were going to lose...

What's Your Upside

(1) Comments | Posted November 10, 2014 | 9:54 AM

On July 23, my husband took me downtown for our first date night in many, many months. As you may know, I have celiac disease, and as a result, I find it challenging to eat in restaurants due to being excruciatingly sensitive to gluten cross-contamination.

But we went...

Are You a Sugar Mama?

(0) Comments | Posted July 9, 2014 | 4:14 PM

I'll be honest, I generally like healthy eating, but 10 years ago, when our first child was born, I had not thought much about food, or how we'd feed this person for whom we were now responsible.

My husband, on the other hand, had very definite ideas about what...

As you may be aware, we have four kids. For a few months now, I have felt like it was time for me to wean our youngest. However, it was only last month that it felt like both of us were ready. It started out with missing a day or...

Transformation or Evolution?

(0) Comments | Posted March 10, 2014 | 2:39 PM

Well, I think there's value in both, really. But let's drill down into this one.

I took a seminar when I was 19 and remember hearing the phrase, "Transformation occurs in an instant," which means that a belief or approach toward something can change immediately. This is also known as...

What Are You Waiting For?

Is it a promotion? A raise? A date with that person you've been flirting with for the past month?

Well, in my case, it was a stripe. Let me give you some background. I started Hung Gar Kung Fu in November. There are five belt colors, and within each...

Can You Touch Your Thoughts?

(0) Comments | Posted January 21, 2014 | 9:39 AM

Recently, one of my kids got upset about something someone said to her during a play date at our house and went up into her room. Between my kids and the kids over, it took me a few minutes to realize she wasn't playing with everyone.

When I found her,...

Unhinged and Blindsided

(0) Comments | Posted January 6, 2014 | 4:32 PM

Now that the holidays have passed, I have gotten a little perspective on a recent incident that caused me to become fully "unhinged." I've been actively working with a spiritual coach (four years); a business coach (six months); doing my tai chi regularly (one year); and just started Kung Fu,...

Waiting for... Permission?

In addition to treating patients, early last year I took on management of the nursing department, apothecary and laboratory staff, supported the administrative and marketing teams and participated in the hiring and firing at the medical center I co-founded, Visions HealthCare.

Needless to say, I was beginning to get...

Well, apropos of this blog, I've worked every day for the past two months. Over the past two months, we redesigned the company, moved many of our staff from one location to another, had a flood in our initial location, and began working on job descriptions, reviews and our employee...

Dogs, Cats, Garden Snakes and Zebras: A Physician's Journey Into Health Fear

(1) Comments | Posted September 18, 2013 | 1:32 PM

One of my favorite classes in medical school was called "differential diagnosis." It usually involved a case, and we'd have to figure out what the diagnosis was. It was always really interesting and often the diagnosis was some obscure illness. Our instructors always told us that these were the "zebras"...

We live in a society of grand gestures. I know a man who wants to buy his wife a car for their 30th wedding anniversary. This is a grand gesture! But most of us don't live in that world. Nor, would I assert, are those the things that would really...

Speaking of Tai Chi, let's talk first about exercise. I've heard for...

Well, in last week's blog I boggled your brain with the biochemistry of how women get an increased risk of breast cancer.

This week we're going to talk about how to alter your risk.

A few caveats: I'm not going to be terribly specific, it's missing information, and...

Constipation 101, Part II: You, Improved!

Constipation can be due to a wide range of issues: stress (remember the fight, flight, or freeze response? When you are busy being stressed out, your digestive system will shut down), not enough water, not enough fiber, too much of a food you have an allergy to (knowingly...

OK, I freely admit it: I am poop obsessed. By now I am used to those puzzled looks on your face when I ask: "How many...
