Spring is here and we can all smell the sweetness of the blossoms that bless this beautiful desert.
Well maybe not “we all” because many people cannot smell the sweetness as the allergy medications can block our sense of smell while taking them.
Since we are not yet through this season as it will go until June when things really start to heat up I’d like to make some suggestions that you may not have thought of before to treat allergies. The first thing would be to remove the most common inflammatory foods from your nutrition until allergies are over: Dairy, Eggs, Soy and Gluten (and alcohol) while drinking your body weight in ounces of water per day.
Removing these may not be easy, but if you can at least lower your intake, your entire system will be less inflamed and able to work with the nutrients I will suggest.
There are two products that our patients prefer to use during allergy season. I have heard that in just 4 days or less their allergy symptoms lessen or go away completely. One product is a homeopathic remedy, meaning energy rather than elemental support. In this liquid vial there exists a vibration of each plant that is blooming in the desert right now. When we put the drops under our tongue and let them dissolve we are “retraining” our immune system to recognize and not to inflame to the pollen. It helps us “become one” with our environment without inflaming to it. This can be used frequently throughout the day and once your body is not inflaming anymore, just 1-2 doses a day is enough to maintain ease rather than inflammation in sinuses and lungs. Another supplement that works really well if taken correctly is called All Arrest. There is a loading dose with these<><><><><><><><><><>Continue Reading >
Maybe it’s because of the freshness and life that Spring brings (and that I planted seeds and they are sprouting!!)…. Maybe it’s because I’m nesting and very much in love with my husband and our growing family…. Maybe it’s because I’ve moved into a better version of myself over the last year….
Surely it’s all of this and more…. I’ve been keeping a journal since I was in 6th grade. For my blog contribution, I thought I would simply write a journal entry to share my heart with whoever feels like reading about it.
I just want to express my deepest gratitude and love for the life that I get to live. This life is a beautiful work of art; in all its majesty and all of the struggles that come with being alive, the ebb and flow of happiness and sadness can provide an unknown state of joy and peace, when you strive to find the positive growth that floats in the midline.Continue Reading

Enzymes act as catalysts - molecules that make reactions happen faster. While there are enzymes that help to build things up, in this article I’ll focus on enzymes that help to break things down, a.k.a. digestive enzymes. Digestive enzymes are an incredibly important part of our gastrointestinal system. They help to break chemical bonds in foods, transforming large molecules into smaller molecules we can easily absorb. That’s what digestion means - breaking down into smaller parts.Continue Reading
February is a month filled with hope, love and lots of Valentine hearts. It also happens to be the month designated to heart health awareness. Many of you may not realize that heart disease is actually the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. Fortunately, it also is a condition that responds very advantageously to healthy changes that in turn provide prevention of heart diseases.Continue Reading
