Six Questions to Consider in Choosing a Life Partner

I've long felt that choosing a life partner should be a subject that is thoroughly discussed sometime in high school and perhaps even in university. It amazes me that so little time, if any, is given to considering this topic on a meaningful level in school. Read more »

 

How We Measure Success

I can't speak for other cultures, but I can confirm that most Korean parents love discussing how well their grown children are doing with their careers. Seriously, if you put longtime Korean friends in their 60's and beyond at a restaurant table for an hour, chances are good that you'll end up with a world-class brag-fest that is veiled in feigned humility.

My Rock Bottom Moment


12:21 minutes (8.48 MB)

I think I hit rock bottom several years ago when I returned to Canada after spending almost a decade studying and working as a chiropractor in the States.

How to Make Healthy Spring Rolls

During our last visit to see the grandparents, my mom surprised us with a lovely plate of vegetable spring rolls. Not the kind that are deep-fried, but ones made with rice paper and filled with an assortment of fresh vegetables and avocado.

 

Dysbiosis and Leaky Gut - What In The World?

Good overall health begins with a healthy gut. Chronic illness begins with breakdown in the gut.

This is where I typically start with clients looking to address any health challenge.

If you're looking for lasting improvement in any area of your health, it's best not to think of your body parts as being independent compartments.

Appearances Matter

When I moved to the suburbs of Chicago shortly after my 20th birthday to begin graduate school, as much as I needed to learn about human physiology and clinical sciences, I was in even greater need of general life guidance. Having been raised by ultra conservative immigrant parents, I had more than a few things to learn about how to understand and interact with people. Read more »

 

The Truth About Alkalizing Your Blood

Is it true that the foods and beverages you consume cause your blood to become more alkaline or acidic?

How to Make Your Own Soy Milk

Contrary to popular belief, soy can be a healthy food choice for the masses. In Korea and Japan, most households enjoy soy in many forms daily. The key is knowing how to prepare it for optimal digestion and nutritional benefit.

If you've never made your own soy milk, I highly recommend that you give it a try. Freshly made soy milk provides flavor and richness that I've yet to find in any store-bought variety. Plus, when you make your own, you can have an entire pitcher of rich, creamy soy milk for about 20 cents.

 

How to Make Healthy Key Lime Pie

What do you get when you combine macadamia nuts, coconut shreds, walnuts, avocados, fresh lime juice, dates, honey, and sea salt? Only the healthiest version of key lime pie that I've ever tried. The crust requires some patience and elbow grease, but it's completely worth the effort.

 

AIDS: The Biggest Medical Mistake Of All Time?

Originally published in 2005
