HEALTH & NUTRITION INFORMATION
No matter what we know already about health and nutrition, we need to keep learning and putting what we learn into practice. I might add that we need to make it FUN, never a chore! Of course, some folks are constantly studying health and nutrition because they continue to feel poorly, perhaps they have a medical condition that stumps the health care professionals.
You will find valuable holistic health information here! And you can even participate on the active Bulletin Board. Dr. Walt Stoll was my medical doctor years ago. I was already on board with whole foods nutrition when I started going to him, but I learned so much from him, including the concept of the Perfectly Whole Foods Diet as a means of healing the body more quickly than by cutting back on refined carbohydrates.
As a result of working directly with Dr. Stoll and helping a number of his patients with their diets, I felt compelled to write my own book, The Healing Power of Whole Foods. Since Dr. Stoll's death in 2011, his website is being moderated by Jan Decourtney, CTM (and co-author with Dr. Stoll of their book, Recapture Your Health). Jan is also the Director of the Stoll Foundation for Holistic Health.
Be sure to check this site out when you have some time to browse since there is so much to be discovered here. To read health articles written by Dr. Stoll and learn some of his health wisdom, once you are on the AskWaltStollMD website, click on and go to the Articles on Health section. You will find worthwhile information that you probably will never find elsewhere!

We are constantly bombarded with health and wellness product promotions/advertisements: some perhaps good, others probably less than good (maybe even worthless), some reasonably priced, and others definitely over priced. How are we to know what products to spend our hard-earned money on? Good question, but one that's not always easily answered!
Products that I recommend below are ones I have researched without bias, and in many cases, for my own use. Please note that in some cases, if you purchase products through my links, I will earn a small commission. Let me say here that I certainly do appreciate your support!

In your lifestyle/health improvement adventure, I hope you include appropriate dietary supplements in your regimen. As a minimum, I believe most people should take a daily quality multi-vitamin-mineral product as well as an Omega-3 supplement. Depending on many factors, you might need far more than these. The best way to decide what you need is to seek the guidance of a nutrition-oriented health care professional who can do specific lab work to determine your unique needs and offer specific supplement advice. This is especially important if you are dealing with medical issuesd.
If you are learning about dietary supplements on your own and deciding what to take, the first bit of advice I want to give you is this: Don't go to your local drug, grocery or discount store to buy supplements! This is the natural go to places since they offer relatively inexpensive supplements - but, unfortunately, in most cases the quality is poor.
As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, I have ordered quality professional supplements from Emerson Ecologics for many years for myself, my family, and clients. Emerson's, a dietary supplement distributor available for health care professionals, has made it possible for clients to order directly from them through my website (you will first need to set up an account with Emerson's).
Stay tuned for information on how to set up an account and order from Emerson's.
WHOLESOME FOOD PRODUCTS
I started buying coconut oil years ago from Tropical Traditions after researching and comparing many brands. I liked what Tropical Traditions had to offer, how their coconut oil was processed, as well as the prices.
Since coconut oil contains heat-stable saturated fat, it is a perfect oil to use for cooking - and without fear for your health, as we were wrongly warned about for years! Coconut oil has been traditionally used in cooking, uncooked, and even in natural body care products. I hope you will click onto the Tropical Tradition logo below to go to their homepage. Look their site over to see how many wonderful natural products they now offer - numerous coconut products; uniquely grown or raised products like grass-fed beef, bison, and lamb, pastured turkeys and chicken, and grass-fed butter; whole grains and flour; health appliances and books; plus so much more!
If you make a first-time purchase from Tropical Traditions, through my link below, you will receive a FREE gift, their book "Virgin Coconut Oil: How it Has Changed People's Lives and How It Can Change Yours!" This book is packed with testimonies and solid research showing how healthy coconut oil is, and it also includes over 85 recipes showing how you can incorporate coconut oil into your diet.
Click on this logo to go to Tropical Traditions' website. If you place your first order, you will receive the free book, described above.
If you order by clicking on my Tropical Traditions link, and have never ordered from them in the past, you will receive a free book on Virgin Coconut Oil, and I will receive a discount coupon for referring you.
