Clinical Clarity or Confusion? Omega-3s

August 14, 2013 | No Comments | SAFM Team

Q:  Hi Tracy, I’m interested in your thoughts about this headline I read: ”Fish oil increases the Risk of aggressive Prostate Cancer”.  Is this true?  There wasn’t enough data presented to really understand what the study showed, but headlines like that certainly get a guy’s attention. I am never quite sure what to say to […]

Hormone Help: Libido Help for Women

July 14, 2013 | No Comments | SAFM Team

Q:  A 62-year-old woman started working with me recently, and one of her main goals is to boost her libido.  She says she loves that her husband is still “in the mood” at times, but even when they are on vacation, she’s just not interested.  She’s also got a lot of stress, so our sessions […]

Calcium Concerns

May 14, 2013 | 8 Comments | SAFM Team

Q:  I just started working with a new female, 56-year-old client who is on the verge of menopause.  She’s really concerned about bone density, so given what she’s “googled” on her own, she’s taking about 1500mg of calcium daily.  Isn’t this way over the top?  I know that calcium is important, but can’t it be […]

Diabetes Medication Downside

April 14, 2013 | No Comments | SAFM Team

Q:   My 39-year-old female client with type II diabetes has a huge issue with low energy.   I know blood sugar fluctuations and her extra ~20 lbs have a lot to do with this!  We’re working on a low-glycemic diet, but I want to give her something to get a real energy boost.   […]

Post Nasal Drip, Drip, Drip

March 14, 2013 | No Comments | SAFM Team

Q:  Okay, I just know you have a quick and easy answer to this one!  One of my clients is struggling all the time with post nasal drip (even when he’s on the phone with me!).  He’s constantly clearing his throat and blows his nose regularly.  He says this is an issue year-round.  Any suggestions […]

Too Easily Black and Blue (Bruising)

December 14, 2012 | No Comments | SAFM Team

Q:  I’ve noticed the past few months that I seem to bruise really easily. Even a pretty mild ding to my hard or arm or leg seems to cause a bruise. They don’t hurt particularly, but it makes me think maybe something is not right in my body? Maybe some kind of deficiency in my […]

Weight Loss Myths & Tips for Practitioners

December 13, 2012 | 6 Comments | SAFM Team

Weight loss (or rather, body fat loss) is by far one of the most common requests we will receive from our clients.  While we can often help them easily to lose “a few” pounds, we often struggle to help them to achieve dramatic, sustainable results…. results that leave them wildly-satisfied and telling everyone they know […]

Finally: Breast Pain and Fibroid Relief

November 29, 2012 | 14 Comments | SAFM Team

Melissa walked into my office and immediately exclaimed, “I absolutely cannot believe it.   I’ve got my boobs back!” Now that’s a wildly-satisfied client! After just six weeks of focus, Melissa’s highly sensitive and “lumpy” breasts were pain-free and softer – clearly healing.  An unfortunately common symptom in our female clients, fibrocystic breasts are a […]

Organic Food, Wheat, and Glyphosate: Surprising Interconnectedness?

July 31, 2012 | No Comments | SAFM Team

The greatest reason to recommend organic foods to our clients is not that they taste better.  And not that they are more nutritious.  The primary benefit is that organic food does NOT include a whole host of toxic chemicals.  It has been well-demonstrated that pesticides are absorbed by the GI tract, often cause an inflammatory […]

Unsung Immune System Hero: Vitamin A

June 17, 2012 | 15 Comments | SAFM Team

  Vitamin Who?   In recent years, we haven’t heard much about Vitamin A in the US.  Unfortunately Vitamin A deficiency is internationally profound and widespread. You may have read about efforts to prevent early childhood death from infectious disease in third-world countries (for which Vitamin A has been a tremendous blessing). But otherwise, conventional medicine […]
