Your Brain Fog Solution

I was listening to one of my mentors in the field of Neurology & Functional Medicine speak about brain health the other day and something he said completely blew me away. When degeneration occurs, it happens in degrees. Before you lose ALL ability to walk in a straight line, finish reading one paragraph or remember [...]

The Science of “Hangry”

I always used to wonder why I would so easily get irritated or even angry when I was hungry. My friends used to say, “uh oh, Elisa’s ‘hangry’ again! Quick, get her food!” Another sign you are “hangry” is your inability to focus and make rational decisions. This is exactly what makes vending machines and [...]

“Bread Head” with Max Lugavere

    You will learn the following nuggets of information in this interview: Why cognitive doesn’t have to happen with old age How Alzheimers can be predicted in the human brain 30 years before the first symptom appears (yikes!) How exercise can actually create massive neurogenesis and that has been seen to enlarge the Hippocampus by [...]

Eat More of These Starches

For a long time, I demonized starches.

Pure 7 Chocolate

I am completely in love with chocolate. Many of you know this, but for those that don’t, my love affair with all things chocolate started at the ripe age of oh, I don’t know, 3! My parents actually entered my twin sister, Catherine, and I into a diaper “derby” contest and while all the other [...]

Chaga Cacao Elixir

I was never someone who enjoyed hot beverages growing up. I never drank tea until I become an adult, so the only thing I would ever enjoy was a warm cup of hot chocolate.  Back in the day, I’d combine one of the pre-packaged Swiss Hot Coco packets with warm milk and I’d be in [...]

The #1 Beverage for Health

Aside from filtered water, I can’t think of a better beverage to consume for a healthy digestive and immune system than Kevita’s fermented Kombucha drinks. In my private nutrition consulting practice, I spend the vast majority of my time helping my clients to either boost or modulate their immune system health. The very first thing [...]
