Oil Swishing To Support Healthy Teeth and Gums

A while back, a colleague in northern California told me that he had started to ask most of his patients to practice "oil swishing" to support healthy teeth and gums.

Oil swishing - sometimes called oil pulling - is a simple Ayurvedic practice that involves swishing about one tablespoon of oil in your mouth for 15 to 20 minutes once daily, typically in the morning. Read more

Learning To Trust Our Instincts

As life continues to roll along, I'm realizing how important it is to trust my instincts with people - ignoring our gut feelings can lead to enormous heartache and wasted years.

My Favourite Cleansing and Nourishing Juice

I've been on a tear with our juicer as of late, in search of a freshly pressed juice that delivers equal parts cleansing and nourishing power.
