“He ruined my life.”
“I’ve tried to forgive her, but I just can’t!”
“That person doesn’t deserve my forgiveness.”
“I’ll never forget what they did to me.”
If any of these phrases sound like things you may have said to yourself or to others, you’re certainly not alone.
All of us tend to carry a certain amount of unforgiveness toward others in our hearts. What we often don’t stop to consider is what that unforgiveness is costing us, and the price of that grudge in terms of our health can be surprisingly high.
Holistic healing is about getting to the root causes of physical problems. Sometimes those root causes may lie in genetic tendencies we’ve inherited or in the foods we’re eating.
Very often, though, root causes can be traced back to emotional and energetic issues that need to be dealt with before long-term healing can take place. Those issues may be things that...
When it comes to food and vitamin supplements, you can certainly get "too much of a good thing."
Find out how one of my patients got off her anti-anxiety medications just by cutting back on her supplements!
Are you overdosing on your food supplements?
“Alice” came into my office with signs of irritability, anxiety, headaches, and insomnia. Her physician had put her on an antianxiety medication. They had run a lot of different tests and couldn’t figure out why she was having so much anxiety.
She also had a very strong odor to her urine and all the tests ruled out a urinary tract infection. So she was very confused about what was going on.
She came into my office and we sat down and did a thorough history together. And then the pulled out a large shopping bag of supplements.
She was trying her best to take care of herself, but she was actually overdosing on supplements. We laid everything out and we navigated through the process and I helped her...

Looking out from my patio at the foot of the Superstition Mountains, the Valley of the Sun stretches out before me. On a clear day I can see the cities of the metroplex: Mesa, Gilbert, and Chandler to the southwest, Apache Junction, Tempe, and Phoenix to the west, Scottsdale to the northwest. Beyond the cities are the mountain ranges that define the boundaries of the valley. But this evening I see none of these.
Strong winds have whipped across the southern Arizona desert and have brought with them a thick cloud of dust that blankets the valley. Visibility is probably less than a half mile right now, and the haze obscures the familiar cities and mountains. It’s a bit unnerving to look out at a wall of dust instead of a clear and beautiful landscape, but reason—and hope—tell me that soon the dust storm will pass, the cloud will dissipate, and clarity will return.
Clarity is a comforting thing. There are times when I can clearly see what...

By becoming more aware of your thoughts, you can choose to identify with those that serve you best.
We all have thoughts constantly going through our minds. Some of those thoughts serve us well, but there are others that we need to let go of. The thoughts that we identify with form the basis of our belief system, and our belief system governs our behavior patterns.
As an example, I might be going through my day and everything is going fine. Then I interact with a person who is unhappy about something and they make a negative comment about me. The thought might come into my head, “That person thinks I’m not good enough.” If I hold that thought long enough in my head and actually become identified with it, I’ll soon start to believe that’s who I really am—an inadequate person. Once that thought becomes part of my belief system, that will become part of my behavior pattern and I may find myself...

I thought it was time to give everyone an update on the new direction we’re taking with online education. We have some great things in store for you!
As most of you know, in May of this year we closed our naturopathic medical clinic in Gilbert, Arizona. We did this so my husband, Peter, and I could put all of our energy into building an online community where people like you can find the information and support you need to empower you to take control of your health!
One of the cornerstone principles of naturopathic medicine is “the doctor as teacher.” It’s a principle I’ve believed in throughout my medical career both as a registered nurse and as a naturopathic physician.
The better you understand your body, the better you are able to care for it!
We are currently developing a brand new website where I can offer you the same kinds of teaching I have provided for my patients in a clinical setting. I’ll do this through free...
