Simple Tips to Balance Cortisol Levels and Lose Belly Fat, Regulate Hormones, and Gain Overall Health I will never forget how I was introduced to the stress hormone, cortisol and its ultimate connection to weight loss. I was a radio show guest of the late, great Dr. Atkins on WOR in New York City. It was in the early 1990s.  The segment before my interview was devoted to “open lines” and a caller asked Dr. Atkins the secret to anti-aging. His Read More

Why Your Magnesium Supplement Isn’t Measuring Up Magnesium is to minerals what vitamin D is to vitamins.  As the “master mineral” and superstar of over 300 key metabolic functions, it reigns supreme in the mineral kingdom. However, not all magnesium supplements are created equal.   If high blood pressure, leg cramps, migraines, anxiety, irritability, depression, heart disease, unstable blood sugar or insomnia are still challenging your well-being, read on… As the premiere heart mineral, Read More

Resolve to Stress Less in 2014

Synthetically-soled shoes, unlike the leather soles of decades ago, insulate the body from the natural healing energies of the earth—which is as basic to health as water, air, and food. The earth is an endless source of negative electrons which can quickly neutralize free radical-induced inflammation—the cause behind pain, tension, swelling, and stress. That’s Read More
