I'm a health detective. I help people with chronic, complex illnesses who haven't been able to find help anywhere else. I'm a licensed acupuncturist by trade, but I specialize in what I call "investigative medicine". I use modern lab testing and detailed questionnaires to determine the underlying cause of health problems (rather than just suppressing symptoms), and supplements, herbs and nutritional therapy to treat them.

Very uninformed.. I'm concerned that you will be providing harmful information that will hurt the community. Very disconcerting that you would write about nutrition with no training and referencing other blogs instead of peer-reviewed and published studies.

Hi Dear Chris: I am very impress by the information you are sharing with us - the people suffering from IBS or other digestive problems. Since the last five years I have been having horrible diverticulatis flares, after reading your articles,and taking notes, I am ready to make the changes in my diet to be a healthy and happy human being. Thanks, Luz Daugherty

Another example of how the gut and the brain are so vitally connected. In this study done on mice, researchers looked at how a stroke alters the microbiome and if this change drives an inflammatory response that can worsen the effect of the stroke.
A bidirectional link between the brain and the gut can improve or worsen brain injury in mice, researchers report.

Do you need a “digital detox”? If you often have difficulty sustaining attention in tasks, have difficulty listening when one is speaking to you directly or are easily distracted by extraneous stimuli, like an email coming in or a text message…Read on.

Obesity, diabetes, and metabolic disease are serious health problems for many Americans – ones that aren't going away anytime soon - determining the cause of these metabolic conditions is a top priority for obesity researchers across the country. Read on to see why I believe that a leaky gut and inflammation are the key players in this metabolic epidemic.
It’s no secret that obesity, diabetes, and metabolic disease are afflicting an incredible number of Americans; in fact, the prevalence of the metabolic syndrome in our country has reached an astoni…

This study, done on mice, may help researchers move closer to understanding how a father’s well-being at time of conception could impact his children's and future grandchildren's​ metabolic health.
With a major global issue of obesity, researchers are warning of the harmful legacy that parental obesity can have on future generations. It follows a vital breakthrough in obesity research, which shows a father's metabolic health can be passed from generation to generation, affecting not only his children but importantly his grandchildren.

Does your workplace have a wellness program? More importantly, do you use it? Understanding how an employee’s stress can impact the bottom line may be the key to helping employers bring in programs that can increase overall health and well-being.
A recent poll shows stress tops the list for people concerned about the impact of their job on their health. Workplace wellness programs often address stress, but many employees don't sign up.

Researchers generally agree that teenagers need 9 hours of sleep a night to be fully rested. Unfortunately, many do not get anywhere near that amount. Not only can sleep deprivation drive health issues like higher blood pressure, low heart rate variability, and obesity, it can also impact a teen’s mental health. My friend Emily Deans, M.D., has some thoughts on why it’s so hard for teens to get those 9 hours of sleep in and what parents might do to help.
The general scientific consensus is that teenagers need about 9 hours of sleep every single night to be fully rested. Unfortunately, only 40% of middle schoolers get their 9 hours, and that figure steadily drops to just 14% of 9th graders and less than 5% of high school seniors.

If you have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes you might want to consider adding a walk to your daily exercise regime. The study found that a brisk walk, as opposed to vigorous running, helped better balance an individual’s glucose control.
Walking briskly on a regular basis may be more effective than vigorous jogging for improving glucose control in individuals with pre-diabetes, according to research from Duke Health.

Well, at least they acknowledge that eating sugar and refined flour does not provide any additional health benefits or increase longevity. Still, not exactly an acknowledgment that saturated fats are not the enemy that we've been they were told all these years.
Diets that replace saturated fats with carbohydrates are unlikely to make you any healthier, a new study shows.

I have written and posted about this before, but it’s worth repeating. You are not your genes - but rather your genes express themselves (or not) when triggered by what you eat, your stress level, your environment, and your activity levels. “Just as a script can be altered with crossed-out words, sentences or scenes, epigenetic editing allows entire sections of DNA to be activated or de-activated.”

According to the study below, increasing your daily fruit and veggie consumption may help you feel happier. “The people who changed from almost no fruit and vegetables to eight portions a day experienced an increase in life satisfaction equivalent to moving from unemployment to employment.”
If eating lots of fruits and vegetables would make you feel happier in a few months, would you change the way you eat?

But this assumes that we want to be happier, doesn't it?
