 What if I told you that there was something safe and effective that you could do while you sleep, that wards off Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Diseases, improves memory and boosts your immune system?  Hint: it’s a trick question, the answer is … sleep!  

Every living thing requires sleep, from the mighty elephant to the tiny fruit fly.  Even sharks, who have to stay moving in order to breathe, shut off part of their brains for “rest” periods.

Cancer, heart disease, and illnesses like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s are all hugely prevalent in the population, and widely studied, even if the direction of the studies leans heavily toward the pharmaceutical model.  But another enormous group of diseases affecting nearly 24 million Americans is not as widely publicized and studied, even as it ravages the population with progressive pain and disability. This group is collectively known as the autoimmune diseases.

For those of us with food allergies and intolerances (or who are just trying to make healthier food choices), the holidays can be tough.


As if the temptation of fresh baked bread or desserts weren’t enough, often family members or friends may not be as understanding of you declining to taste what they’ve made as you’d hoped they’d be. One great strategy for dealing with Thanksgiving Day is to bring a few dishes that you know are safe, so you can indulge, guilt-free, without getting sick.

As the winter months approach, the days get colder, the sun sets earlier, and many of us in New England become increasingly sad and anxious.  Though this seasonal downturn in mood is incredibly common and may seem inevitable, it can be improved or avoided in several ways.

If you’re a fan of heat in the kitchen, then you are in luck! Spicy foods often get a bad rap, but more and more studies are proving them to have a long list of health benefits. Different types of hot chili peppers contain a phyto-chemical called capsaicin, which not only gives peppers their heat, but is also what gives them all of their healthy properties.

Civilizations all over the world have been fermenting different types of foods for centuries. The earliest record of fermentation dates back to about 6000 BC.
