Comments
  • Jon Levin on My Ethics Teacher, Mike the Dog"I wish I were half the person my dog thinks I am" Is that the bumper sticker?
  • Joel Kahn on Pop Philosopher, Marci Shimoff3 steps. If we would follow these 3 steps the world would ignite in progress, service, kindness and joy. Thanks so much for distilling the essence of a life with meaning to bite size actionable steps I am pasting this on the wall of my study.
  • Lorraine Feber on Hello from Sunny L.A.A very interesting talk that makes so much sense. We only have one body so we may as well feed it with good, healthy, nutritious, satisfying food. Thank you for your post Kelly.
  • Katie Janosz on Self-help: I’m Over It (But Not Really)Always, well said!
  • Elyse Foltyn on The Four QuestionsAnother great article, Kelly. I especially appreciate your insight regarding supplements. Sometimes it is tough to see the forest for the trees. Thank you!
  • Jen Green ND on Supplements and HerbsAnother temptation with over supplementation is to chase every individual symptom with a separate supplement, which fails to "treat the root cause". The hope is to be a good medical detective and discover the underlying imbalances, and address these directly (without causing side effects that then necessitate another intervention). As you said so perfectly, lack of sleep, hydration, movement deficiency and stress management (I would add nature deficiency) cannot be replaced with a pill. They are the pillars of health, and the root causes of so many of our modern ills.
  • Karen on Motivating a Loved One to Lose WeightBeautifully written and wise words. The motivator must find the "why" for the person needing assistance. Perhaps a picture of their reason for health on the fridge to remind them. Thanks for this blog!
  • gwen on Step Away from the Protein BarBravo Kale and Kant! So right about processed protein!! Delicious nuts, especially sprouted, are crunchy, convenient and much more delicious.
