Does the US export its worst habits?

Healthy by Nature radio show this week
This broadcast, on-location at Natural HealthFest is always the liveliest of the year. (See the event flier below.) A studio audience adds even more excitement. Andy Hopkins co-hosts as we drag exhibitors off the floor of to educate us about their specialties. There is no telling who we might end up with, but I have a few targeted. For one thing, I’m launching my brand new Digestive Wellness Education Video Course (see below) and I’m bringing in a surprise guest to help tell that story. Then, we will talk with Park Bishop, LMT who has discovered an innovative non-surgical way to correct scoliosis (that curvature of the spine). Next, I will ask Brenda Schwartz, the founder of Body Dynamics, about her upscale line of “Skin Drink” brand phytoceutical facial products. Last but not least is Craig Turczynski, Ph.D, a farmer / rancher dedicated to sustainable natural and organic methods that avoid chemical herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers. Check out his Country Work Force Blog.

Do we export obesity?

In the blog this week I detail why I wonder if the US is leading the parade in the wrong direction. Click here to read the blog. (It is shorter than usual.) 

NEW Digestive Wellness Video Education



The reasons that my two major books have been on digestion is that wellness (or disease) begin in the gut. Knowing that not everyone wants to read a book and not all can make an appointment or come to my seminars, I have created a professionally filmed video education program. Go at your own pace. Thirty manageably-sized classes cover all manner of digestive imbalances, some of which people don’t even know they have and even other issues like toenail fungus. It is an online course (yours to use forever), but also available on DVD’s. Although the official launch is Saturday, newsletter subscribers get a sneak preview here and 20% off with the code HBN20.

Last Week Follow-up


I talked with Deb McFarland from OsteoStrong of Carrollton about a non-drug solution for increasing bone density and strength; improving balance and posture; as well as reducing back and joint pain. Then, Nazar Snihur of The University of Texas Southwestern discussed the importance of a few of the health screenings (such as blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate) of several that they will offer at Natural HealthFest June 17. Next, Mary Ellen Dorey Cassman of Dorey AromaTherapy explained how aroma therapy can offer support for the lymphatic system, emotions, aches and headaches. Last but certainly not least, Lance VanHemel and I discussed how enlightened restaurants are making their menus healthier. He is with the national chain Jason’s Deli that is the lunch vendor for our upcoming event.
