Who is your health hero?

I believe that your true nature is radiant health. I believe in your body’s innate healing ability; and I believe that you are the only authority regarding your health and your body. This is more than a “belief”, it is a knowing because I have experienced my own body’s healing ability—from chronically ill and exhausted to radiant, and I have witnessed it in others. … More Who is your health hero?

What do I actually eat on the Equilibrium Diet?

I have had several readers ask me, “What do you eat? What do you buy?” And what a great conversation starter because it shows what the Equilibrium Diet looks like once “equilibrium” has been reached (physical at least) and how things change. My purchases and meals are identical in many ways to when we first began this lifestyle in 2010, and they are different too. … More What do I actually eat on the Equilibrium Diet?

Cashew Waffles (gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free)

This recipe is from my mom when she first began the Equilibrium Diet. These are ketogenic and grain-free waffles. Paired with collard greens and bacon (turkey or not), it has become one of my favorite all-time breakfasts. When I eat two of these little waffles and collard greens, I am so full I can’t eat ANYTHING again until dinnertime (even if that’s 10 hours later)! They are loaded with protein and fat, just what the body needs! … More Cashew Waffles (gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free)

The Roots of the Most Powerful Diet on Earth

Had I stuck to what doctors, nutritionists, and even health-food experts had said, I would have ended up buried in data, research, statistics, and opinions and I probably never would have gotten healthy; and I definitely wouldn’t have experienced enlightenment. But I didn’t stick to what anyone else said – I cared about one thing and one thing only – finding an equilibrium way of eating and I didn’t care where it came from or what “rules” it broke.
And it broke all the “rules” – shattered them actually, and my own identity in the process; because I discovered equilibrium wasn’t about exercise and restricting fat and pleasure of ANY kind – it was about full-fat everything, eating as much as I cared to eat, and doing whatever made me feel good in my body! And that is the key – getting into your body and out of your head.  
Ultimately, the Equilibrium Diet is rooted in the diets of primitive tribes untouched by modern society and modern convenience foods like wheat, sugar and pasteurized dairy; and the diet is also rooted in the natural cycle of the day. As humans we cycle with the sun and moon and before electricity, our night time activity was restricted. So we need more energy, more food and more fuel early in the day and virtually nothing before we go to bed.  … More The Roots of the Most Powerful Diet on Earth

Migraines: Relief and Prevention

I used to suffer from almost monthly migraines. Migraines so intense the smallest ray of light would make me cry in pain, so intense I would almost always throw up—debilitating. Perhaps you know the kind. I have been migraine and medication-free for over six years now and in those six years of research and personal experimentation, I have found a few remedies that seem to work for headaches and migraines. Some of these are long-run supportive solutions, others are a quick fix. The good news is that when we use the long-run preventers, we rarely need the quick fixes because the migraines just disappear. … More Migraines: Relief and Prevention
