Many people will steer clear from any diet plans that include the word “detox.” Most think it’s either too difficult, not sure how it works, or believe that it’s only for people who need to lose weight fast.

Beyond Cerebrolysin: Herbs and Nutritional Supplements for Alzheimer’s Disease

2020-02-13T05:38:22+00:00

A couple weeks ago, I wrote about a game changer peptide called Cerebrolysin, which protects neurons from free radical stress, improves metabolic activity of neurons, and is having massive impact on neurodegenerative diseases, stroke patients, and traumatic brain injuries. Beyond lifestyle changes and injectable Cerebrolysin, herbs and nutritional supplements offer much support in many degenerative [...]

by Mary F. ShackeltonIt has come again…January is here, and I have seen another patient with symptoms of having gone too fast on a group detox.  Everyone likes the idea of a cleanse. It seems to be some sort of penance to pay for the sins of the month before:  the multiple happy hours, the [...]

Juicing: Beneficial or Harmful?

2013-09-26T08:00:13+00:00

By Mary F. Shackelton, ND, MPHThe medical and surgical weight-loss community and the natural health community seem to be divided on this topic. The former argues that juicing reduces the fiber content and therefore decreases the feeling of fullness gained by eating fresh, crisp fruits and vegetables (Ashley Barrient, clinician in Loyola's bariatric department, Alternative [...]

What is Sauna Therapy? How Can It Improve My Health?

In fact, farmed salmon has four times more PCBs, dioxins, and other chlorinated contaminants than wild Alaskan salmon. A big reason for these high levels of toxicity is that farmed salmon [...]
