Root Cause of PMS

August 14, 2013 | 4 Comments | SAFM Team

Q:  Hi Tracy, why are some women’s PMS experiences so much worse than others?   I’ve read that diet is a big deal, but that can’t be all that matters.  I am sure there are a lot of reasons but what are the biggest drivers?  I get this question a lot and obviously it’s a […]

Cell Phone Radiation: Danger or Deception?

August 14, 2013 | No Comments | SAFM Team

Q:  I want to understand more about the supposed risk of cell phone radiation.  Is there real evidence of harm from scientific research yet, or just suspicion?  I’d really like to discourage my clients from using their phone so much – especially children and teenagers which really alarms me!   I mean their brains are […]

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.

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 | 21 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 […]
