Muscle as Medicine

February 28th, 2018

Last year I published an article in the Naturopathic Doctors News and Review titled “Muscle as Medicine: A Most Naturopathic Anti-Aging Medicine“.

Being as I get asked about it often, I wanted to link it here for all of my readers to enjoy. While it’s a bit technical, as it was written for physicians and health professionals, it is well referenced and information rich.

I hope you enjoy!

Are You A Good Candidate for Regenerative Injection Therapy?

October 17th, 2017

So many of you have signed up for the Platelet-Rich Plasma 101 School and are finding the content quite valuable.

My Insider’s Guide to Prolotherapy and PRP has all the information that you need about who is and who is not a good candidate for Regenerative Injection Therapies (RIT). Many of you have also reached out about becoming a patient at my clinic and have been so kind as to go through the brief application process.

Here is a list […]


How to Recover From Surgery FAST

May 17th, 2017

I apologize for my absence but I’ve had some health issues that needed handling.

First off, I had a basal cell carcinoma removed from under my breast area. It had been there for a few years and I had let it go. Why? Because basal cells don’t usually kill people. They are slow growing and I was taking my chances. Some call it stupid, but I wanted to make sure I was in a place with my business, travels, and health that I would bounce back from […]


Sugar is Satan

January 13th, 2017

Perhaps I should title this “Sugar: America’s Legal Drug Obsession”, or “Sugar: The Drug We Gladly Feed to Our Children”, or “Sugar: The Root Cause Behind Heart Disease (and most others)”. I could go on and on here.

So, what’s so bad about sugar? It’s everywhere, it’s in everything and everyone seems to be addicted to it. What could be the problem?

10 Reasons Sugar is Satan:

It’s a lot like crack: each drug lights up a different part of the brain, hijacks a certain neurotransmitter pathway(s). Sugar hijacks the brain’s reward center […]


Protein and Fats: Confessions of a Former Mac ‘n’ Cheese-atarian:

January 12th, 2017

I spent nearly a decade living off of carbs and dairy. Can you say “Hello autoimmune disease?” Those were my dark days. I also smoked cigarettes like a chimney and drank like a fish. I was young and foolish. When asked, “if you could go back in time and tell your younger self a piece of advice, what would it be?” My answer is always the same, I would tell poor little malnourished 16-year-old Tyna to EAT BETTER.

Bottom line, we need protein and healthy fats. I don’t want to offend […]


Dark Chocolate – From the Gods

January 10th, 2017

Oh Chocolate, how I love thee. What a wonderful medicine.

Theobroma cacao is the tree that chocolate comes from. The genus, Theobroma, literally means “food of the gods”. The Mayans and Aztecs both thought of cacao as a gift from the gods.

If you are as much of a dark chocolate fan as I am, you would likely agree with that.

Why is dark chocolate and raw cacao so coveted and enjoyable? Several reasons.

Cacao is a nutritious superfood that contains notable amounts of several minerals including magnesium. […]


Common Cause of Obesity: Malnourishment!

December 2nd, 2016

Yes, you read that right. Malnourished and Overfed.

A very common reason that people struggle with obesity is because of starvation via malnourishment.

I won’t beat around the bush (because I never do). Most of the food choices that people make in this country are crap. The “Standard American Diet” (SAD) is terrible for you!

This highly palatable, highly tasty, highly processed chemical poo storm is simply devoid of any nutritional depth. It’s quite literally junk. The bulk of what people eat I would not feed […]


Less Pain, Harder to Kill, More Sanity… I’m IN!

November 17th, 2016

What can strength training do for you? Besides helping you avoid a hip fracture in the future, there are some very handy aspects to being strong.

I have dabbled in all sorts of exercises and modalities, from running to Pilates to Tae Bo and more. I started as a high level gymnast. I then atrophied into a skeleton in my constant pursuit for thinness.

My mother is a smart woman, she required that I take some sort of exercise course each and every quarter throughout college […]
