RAW AND LOW TEMP PASTEURIZED MILK VS HIGH TEMP AND ULTRA PASTEURIZED MILK Should you drink whole fat, 2% milk or skim milk? The question has popped into all of our minds at some time while shopping.  So what should you be drinking?

Solanine Toxicity – The Dark Side of Nightshades

Nightshades Contain Solanine While the word “nightshade” has become more common in the Paleo and Autoimmune communities, there is still a large group of my patients that are surprised to hear that they may have a sensitivity to nightshades and/or solanines.  In fact, you may have never even heard of a solanine.  This isn’t their/your fault, most of these foods are considered healthy and can have many beneficial uses if you don’t have a sensitivity to solanines.

3 Common Micronutrient Deficiencies & Should You Take A Multi-Vitamin?

Are Multi-Vitamins a Waste of Money? So let’s get this out of the way...Unlike most natural practitioners (and against my financial advisors recommendation :-) ), I usually don’t recommend/sell a multi-vitamin for most of my patients. Why is that?  Well it’s because most people that eat a paleo-type, whole foods and nutrient rich diet, don’t actually need them.  I have tested thousands of nutrients on patients and less than half of 1% need the same nutrient for over a few weeks to a month and [...]
