    The Beauty of Brussel Sprouts

    I didn’t grow up eating Brussels sprouts. I guess this is a good thing because it seems many folks develop a prejudice against these adorable little cabbage buds because of bad experiences with them growing up. Usually this attitude is the result of unpleasant exposure to overcooked sprouts, which sadly, become bitter, sulfurous smelling, and overly soft. However, cooked just until tender, roasted quickly at high heat, or even eaten raw, Brussels sprouts have a way of winning over even the biggest skeptics. Brussels sprouts are a member of the brassica family, which includes cabbages, collards, kale, broccoli, and...

    Preserving Fertility, Preserving Hope

    Some of the most emotionally difficult conversations I have in my office on a weekly basis are those with patients who are diagnosed with cancer and come to me for fertility preservation. There is a psychological “double blow” hitting them all at once: not only is their cancer itself scary, but they are also worried that they will not be able to have children afterwards because chemotherapy and radiation – while life saving – can damage their sperm and eggs. Fertility preservation is a paramount concern for both men and women faced with cancer treatments. This is why it...

    Breast Cancer: The Integrative Connection

    That scary word that any woman would fear to hear: Breast Cancer. Breast cancer is a serious condition striking 1 in 8 women. There will be an estimated 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 61,000 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer. In 2016, there are more than 2.8 million women with a history of breast cancer in the U.S. This includes women currently being treated and women who have finished treatment. So there is a good likelihood that you know someone who has had breast...

    Has Breast Cancer Touched Your Life?

    As women, breast cancer is a part of our lives. It has been a part of my life since my mother had her first scare with it back when I was a teenager, and subsequently when both my grandmothers passed away from it. Helping women who have struggled with it, and men who have experienced losses because of it, has also been a part of my practice for over a decade. The shadow of cancer is a part of every annual physical and gynecological exam when, because of my family history, my well intentioned doctors stress the importance of...

    Experience a Fairytale at WildSpring Guest Habit in Southern Oregon

    Imagine you have just entered a fairytale land with a beautiful canopy of 100 foot trees, rustling ferns, an ocean breeze and the only sounds are the leaves softly blowing in the wind and an occasional owl hooting in the distance at night. You have arrived at the WildSpring Guest Habitat in Port Orford, Oregon. This place to me was almost beyond words. You have to see it to believe it. WildSpring is a small, eco-friendly resort 60 miles north of California. Private and secluded, on five acres of a lovely residential forest, a bluff overlooking the ocean, with...

    Can You Rewrite Your Story About Fear?

    There is nothing that strikes fear into the hearts and minds of all of us like the word cancer. The Big C. It doesn’t matter if it is our diagnosis, that of a family member, a friend, a co-worker, an acquaintance, or even a pet. Fear. The Big F. The two go hand in hand. When we hear someone has been diagnosed with cancer, we think what if it were me. And if it is our diagnosis, with fear comes thoughts of death. And what do we fear more than death? Change. And death is the ultimate change. I’m...

    Five Keys to Creating Harmony Between Your Personal Life and Your Financial Life

    Financial concerns consistently rank among the most stressful elements of a person’s life and the effects of that stress can be intensely disruptive to one’s overall sense of balance and wellbeing. While there is a growing trend focusing on a holistic approach to physical, emotional, spiritual, environmental and intellectual wellness, financial wellness is often left out of the equation. If you find that the way you manage your money is based on one set of values and priorities and the rest of your life is based on another, it may be time to consider this crucial connection. But how...

    Hudson Valley – The Napa of the East Coast

    I’m driving West on Rt. 44 past beautiful rolling hills in Salisbury and Lakeville on my way to Hudson Valley for a two month stay in Rhinebeck and High Falls. As I cross into New York and head over Winchell Mountain Road to Rt. 199 which will take me into Rhinebeck, my jaw drops as I come to the top of the hill and gaze out over miles of some of the most breathtaking countryside I’ve seen on the east coast. It probably didn’t hurt that the sun was also setting behind the Catskill Mountains creating a stunning skyline...
