Naturally Healthy Skin – Prevention Magazine May 2012

Your skin is vulnerable. As the largest organ system, it performs numerous essential tasks and is the frontline of defense against bacteria, viruses, allergens, toxins, and more. You do your best to protect your skin, but it’s out in the open, exposed to sun, wind and environmental pollutants. Skin structure is complex, and part of an intricate network involving other organs. To keep it healthy, you need to support this system. Healthy skin is a vital component to wellness and vice versa. Here are some recommended ways to love your skin and promote overall health.

Toxins: Where to Find Them – Remedies Magazine March 2012

Many potentially toxic substances are manmade. Considered safe by the government until the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proves otherwise, these molecules are often described by their manufacturers as harmless in small amounts. But modern life exposes us to small doses many times over, with our cells playing host to a roiling cocktail of chemicals from different sources. The resulting “body burden” of toxins we’ve accumulated adds up to 400 to 800 chemicals at any given time, says Gaetano Morello, ND.

Detox Correctly – Dear Pharmacist

Detoxification is a specific integrative health protocol that is traditionally and preferably practiced in the fall and spring seasons, as these are times that energetically correspond to the natural cycles of change in nature and detoxification within our bodies. It can also be done at other times of the year — if medically warranted. Although the fall season has ended and winter is officially here, I would nonetheless like to discuss some of the important details of this increasingly relevant topic with regard to integrative medicine. Having a deeper understanding of the detox process can help us prepare now for the completion of a successful cleanse during the appropriate season as it approaches.

Grow Your Own Healing Garden – Maria’s Farm Country Kitchen August 2012

The next time you go to a pharmacy, take a look at the shelves behind the counter. They’re packed with hundreds, perhaps thousands, of drugs, all designed to cure what ails us. The key word here is cure, meaning fixing something that is wrong. However, we are slowly relearning what ancient medicine has taught for ages: The best solution to a health problem is to prevent it in the first place. And if we do develop a health condition that isn't immediately life threatening, our first approach should be the gentlest one. Many conditions can be prevented or remedied with lifestyle adjustments, and diet tops the list. By now, we should all know that eating healthy—reducing fat, salt, and alcohol, increasing fruits and vegetables—can have a profound impact on our health. But there are other dietary resources that can stave off disease and improve overall health. Specifically, common medicinal herbs and other botanicals can complement or even replace the pharmaceuticals in our medicine cabinet. As an integrative physician, I rely on herbs and botanicals to help promote optimal health. Medicinal herbs have evolved to provide a variety of beneficial natural compounds, such as antioxidants and phytonutrients, which support good health in numerous complex ways. But these are simple, easy-to-find natural remedies, many of which flourish right in our own backyards. This is, of course, the best natural pharmacy: a garden full of vital, living remedies rich in healing properties. In fact, many traditional herbalists insist that our best medicine can be found growing closest to us, fresh and in season.
