New Year – Fluoride free

Fluoride has been a hot button issue with me for 30 years – probably more. I remember being disappointed after my first child was born when my doctor (who I respected) told me to give him fluoride drops but not vitamins. I remember getting in the fight to keep fluoride out of the city where […]

Christmas Brunch

We celebrated Christmas with family on the first weekend of December. As my father used to say, “It doesn’t matter what day it is as long as we are together.” There are now several families involved in our Christmas, and the best thing for everyone concerned was for us to have an early Christmas. There […]

Logrando El Peso Ideal

El hecho de elegir alimentos apropiados para nuestro grupo sanguíneo nos lleva por el camino hacia una buena salud. La pérdida de peso se convierte en un efecto secundario gratificante de dicha práctica. Conforme vayamos avanzando, habrá periodos de ‘’estancamiento’’ metabólico, donde nuestras glándulas y hormonas van ajustando sus funciones. Es común el no poder […]

Hanukkah- the Festival of Latkes

Hanukkah is the commemoration of when Judah Maccabee reclaimed the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, but only found enough untainted oil to light the Menorah for one night. But there was a miracle and the oil burned for 8 nights; long enough to obtain more supplies. One of its names is The Festival of Lights. Jews […]

I called the airline to ask about getting meals for special diets, and they didn’t have any trouble at all signing us both up for gluten free and dairy free. Oh my! […]

Pumpkins and Leaves

As I was driving, I noticed how all the trees lining the streets are turning beautiful shades of red, orange, and yellow. This is my favorite time of year. It’s finally cool enough to go for walks outside, the foliage is beautiful, and lots of great vegetables are in season. I find it so interesting […]

Una genuina pérdida de peso sustentable va más allá

¿Por qué es tan popular la dieta del Tipo de sangre y/o Genotipo (de acuerdo a la individualidad fisiológica) para la perdida de peso? Durante décadas, los investigadores han identificado más de 1.000 alimentos comunes que contienen potentes proteínas llamadas lectinas. Aquí radica el meollo del asunto: estas lectinas contenidas en los alimentos pueden o […]

Alps: the marvelous day

Before I write my last blog about our trip to the Alps, I want to share about the single best day of the trip. We’ll see what BTD applications turn up. HH and I spent three days in the Alps in 1987. As we rode into Switzerland on the train, the views of the mountains […]
