Federal officials on Tuesday announced major changes in advice to pregnant and breastfeeding women by recommending consumption of at least 8 ounces of low-mercury fish per week.
It is the first time that the Environmental Protection Agency and Food and Drug Administration have issued recommendations on the minimum amount of fish that pregnant women and children should eat. The previous advisory, issued in 2004, included only maximum amounts to protect their fetuses and young children from mercury, which can harm developing brains and reduce IQs.

That is a good step in the right direction. Now we need to be made aware of the levels of radioactive chemicals showing up in the fish as that is equally if not more concerning to human health.

I recently was a panelist at the American Association of University Women to discuss holistic approaches to women’s health, where I found myself talking a lot about purpose in life. What is the point of investing in your health, being proactive, and preventing health challenges down the road? The point is so that you can feel strong enough to fulfill your purpose(s) in life.
So, it was timely to see this new research study (NOT that we need to spend millions on research studies to prove what we all know intuitively) on the value of having a purpose in life. Click here to read more about the study that included 7,000 Americans, as published by the BBC News.
For some, one’s purpose in life is to go above and beyond the call of duty to improve our local community and the quality of life for children and their families. The Above and Beyond Awards gala does an excellent job of honoring those people, in the trenches, who are doing just that. The local Above and Beyond Awards gala is being held this June 21st, 2014 at the Wyndham Avenue of the Arts Hotel. Click here to register and please contact me at 949-715-9321 if you are interested or know someone who is interested in participating as a sponsor at the event. The list of honorees is impressive and learning about their tireless contributions is humbling and inspiring!

An article, published in the Washington Post yesterday, speaks to a simple, naturopathic approach to addressing depression symptoms in many people. It also offers further evidence for the Sickness Syndrome Depression phenomenon I have been speaking about for the past ten years..making the connection between inflammation, diet, the gut and mental illnesses like depression. Tomorrow evening at 6:30 PM is our next Purification/Detox kickoff. I will be discussing this 21 day program that lowers inflammation, balances gut microflora, and applies diet principles that are effective in treating depression.
