Some Nuts

Do  you ever wonder how pistachios, almonds, cashews, brazil nuts and pine nuts  grow? Pretty surprising to me.  The only one I knew was almond.

Let’s Do the Cleanse!

Look and Feel Amazing!  

We know you want to!

It’s that time of the year again…

Right after summer, before the holidays and at the change of the season!

That’s right…. it is time for the Standard Process Purification Program.

Many, many people have done the 21 day program with us over the last five years and have had fantastic results. While that option is of course available for those who want it, Standard Process is now also offering a 10 day option!!!

Live your life in high resolution with the

Standard Process Purification Program

Are you hungry for good health? Experience the benefits of helping your body cleanse with the Standard Process Purification Program. The purification program combines a generous menu of whole foods with supplements that support the body’s ability to remove naturally occurring toxins. This promotes a state that allows for toxin release.

 

Much More Than a Cleanse Diet

The Standard Process Purification Program is not strictly a cleanse diet but rather a structured program that combines whole food eating with supplements, nutritious supplement shakes, and light exercise. The menu includes an abundance of fresh vegetables and fruit. Select proteins are added after the first few days. 

Check out the guide here :  Standard Process Purificaton Guide

Check out the last time we did the cleanse in the office for menu suggestions.  Sample Menu

So call the office at 212.226.6320 or email us at [email protected] or reply to this email to order a kit!

We plan to start as a group on October 1st so that it is easy to keep track of what day you are on but of course you can start whenever you want!

What You Do Today Creates Your Tomorrow!

I Quit Sugar with Sarah Wilson

I recently attended a  Standard Process seminar about Women’s Health in New York City.  It was fantastic and  informative. Among the many things I learned about women’s health, I also found out about Sarah Wilson who wrote a book called  I Quit Sugar.  She has become a sensation in Australia.  While she was not a speaker at the conference I really loved her website and content so I thought I would pass it on for anyone interested in quitting sugar.

Everybody Eats Bakery

One of my patients, was telling us about this great bakery in Gowanus,  Everybody Eats, Inc. She had to get a cake for her son to bring to school for his birthday that accommodated the various allergies in the class. The search for a gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free cake found her walking 45 minutes from her house to this bakery. “I’m a great mom. I should get mom of the year award.”

So, I went to check it out myself with my family.  The owners are extremely lovely. We were greeted with warm chocolate chip cookies and I splurged on one. We bought bagels, pizza crust, and some rolls. Although I try to keep my carbs low I was  not feeling too guilty. These products can be frozen and eaten whenever you’re ready to eat them. Everybody Eats is a great find. Go check it out!
