LDL: truthfully NOT the “bad” cholesterol

November 30, 2017 | 4 Comments | SAFM Team

As savvy practitioners, we need always to question what the medical media promotes.  Our ability to simply AND accurately educate and inspire our patients depends on it!  When they better understand the biochemical dynamics that are at play within their body, the people we serve are much more likely to take ownership for optimizing them […]

Surprising Client “Tools” that Spark my Gratitude

November 21, 2017 | 8 Comments | SAFM Team

A key concept to share with your clients and patients is the healing power of gratitude.

November 9, 2017 | 1 Comment | SAFM Team

Stress doesn’t just affect hormones and metabolism; sustained stress also effects electrolyte balance.  And it happens on purpose!  As I often say during SAFM courses, the body is not a “dumb bucket”.  It is constantly orchestrating a systemic response to help us to thrive in the environment in which we are asking it to live.  […]

November 7, 2017 | 33 Comments | SAFM Team

We all know it: high-quality sleep is vital to every client’s healing. While the body appears from the outside to be still and inactive, sleep is a time when the body is quite busy. During the night, we restock our supply of hormones, process significant toxins, repair damaged tissue, generate vital white blood cells for […]

November 2, 2017 | 2 Comments | SAFM Team

Test; don’t Guess!  It’s a common mantra heard among practitioners here at SAFM.  I believe it’s particularly good clinical guidance in the arena of hormones.  But it’s also important to do testing that clearly reveals what is at play vs. creating more confusion.  Check out some common pitfalls and misunderstandings in the arena of cortisol/adrenal […]

October 26, 2017 | 2 Comments | SAFM Team

This is a common practitioner mistake!  Sometimes a miss in fundamental understanding.  And many times just a misspeak that might confuse (or even demoralize) your patients and clients. (Alas, I used to do this too.) I walked into my friend, Dr. Jeff Gladd’s, office this past Thursday and (literally) saw “the writing on the wall”. […]
