What Role Does Nutrition Play in Skin Cancer?

Here are five key reasons today’s food contains fewer nutrients than the food of past generations: 1. Monoculture farming (the practice of growing a single crop on a very large scale) over crop rotation has depleted the soil of key nutrients. 2.

What is Skin Cancer? Healthy cells in our body grow and then at a prescribed time, the cell replicates and then dies in a process called apoptosis. Cancer occurs when cells abnormally grow and no longer get the “die” message. Skin cancer occurs when the skin cells begin to abnormally grow. Any abnormal growth of […]

I have a fairly stressful, fulfilled life as a nutritionist in practice and as a CEO of two companies. To be honest, I felt that intermittent fasting would be too hard on my cortisol and leptin control. But, […]

The Potential Downside to Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting isn’t for everyone. As mentioned in my previous blogs on this topic, those with adrenal fatigue and poor insulin control cannot jump into intermittent fasting overnight. It takes a skilled plan to move you from feeding frequency to control blood sugar — the often quoted three meals and two snacks a day to […]

Intermittent Fasting – Types of Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting can be used for weight loss and several hundred studies over the years show that in addition to inducing weight loss, it can improve immune regulation, slow the aging process and induce autophagy (degradation) of decayed and damaged cells. Intermittent fasting may work for some but there are caveats to starting a program […]

Can a Ketogenic Diet Clear Up Your Acne?

  Though acne is usually seen as a male hormone excess concern called androgen-mediated acne, in many cases it’s actually driven more by insulin, which will also make the other hormonal based acne from thyroid hormones or estrogen issues worse. It directly stimulates skin cells to produce more sebum and keratin but it also increases […]
