To defend us from the nearly infinite variety of microorganisms we come in contact with, our bodies have had to develop a robust and sophisticated set of defenses. We refer to these defenses collectively as our immune system.

The immune system is a dynamic and living system that we rely on at every moment to keep us healthy and balanced. Not only does it respond to environmental cues like hot and cold and day and night but also our state of mind and emotions.

Fatty Liver: The Silent Cause of Toxicity, Fatigue & Difficulty Losing Weight

Can’t lose excess weight even though you’re eating less and exercising more? Have fatty liver but unsure what to do about it?

Your liver works hard every day to digest food, process & eliminate toxins, balance hormones and blood glucose and so much more! And the modern diet and lifestyle places an even greater burden on this hardworking organ. So much so that now almost 1 in 3 people have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) - and the rate of this condition is growing in both adults and adolescence. To make matters worse, most individuals with fatty liver have no idea.

Read on to learn what fatty liver is, how you can identify it and where it’s coming from. You’ll also learn simple adjustments you can make to your daily habits to reverse this insidious problem.

Good health starts with great gut health.

I don’t remember when I started to have stomach aches every day.

Only later did I realize that what I was eating (and how I was eating) was causing my gut symptoms. And only after a lot of studying did I connect my gut health to my immune symptoms. My hope is to help you connect your symptoms to gut health and give you the roadmap to rebuilding a healthy gut.

The Health-Changing Magic of Tidying Up

How tidying up clutter improves your health

Professional organizer, Marie Kondo’s international bestseller The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up (2014) and Netflix series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo (2019) sent a shock wave through our consumer driven culture. Kondo’s signature “tidying up” process applies a sense of ritual and ceremony that we don’t often afford to our spaces and our belongings in the West. She guides us to ask “Does it spark joy?” and to thank the object as we let it go. Through this intentional process of reducing and reorganizing she helps us transform homes to reflect and support the lives we desire. In doing so, she shows how our surroundings, including our “clutter” impact our everyday lives (positively and negatively).
