Sexual Vs. Harassment

30/   November, 2017

There is a lot happening in our world today that makes me regularly shake my head in dismay. Today I write to you about a very emotional topic.

It is almost every day now that we hear about another prominent person fired or resigning from their job due to accusations of inappropriate sexual behavior.

(On a personal political note, I continue to be shocked and amazed how Trump himself remains untouched by this process. When will he “step down amid allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior”? But I digress.)


Spreading Justice

13/   October, 2017

Another incredible experience in Africa.

During our stay in Cape Town, we did a guided bicycle tour of a township called Masiphumelele (I pronounce it for you in the video!). Check out my Justice Doll, made by some of the women there to raise awareness of injustice against women and children.

I have shared a few photos of my trip (Masiphumelele and a couple from Table Mountain) below.


My scary/beautiful honeymoon moment

10/   October, 2017

I have just returned from my second magical trip to Africa.

This trip was special for many reasons, chief among them is that it was my honeymoon!

I got married in August to a wonderful man who is originally from Cape Town, South Africa.

On our 2-week trip to Cape Town, in addition to meeting his family and attending Jewish holiday services, we hiked Table Mountain (twice), toured the Robben Island prison where Nelson Mandela was held for 18 years (before being imprisoned for another 9 years), took a helicopter ride (my first!), saw penguins on the beach, and visited the Cape of Good Hope.


“Just OK”? or “Great!”

10/   July, 2017

I hope your summer is going not just “OK”, but great! I cringe when a patient tells me their doctor said their lab results were “OK”, or that they are in “the normal range”. Has this happened to you?

This is super common when it comes to testosterone levels, both for men and women.

When men do not have a good testosterone level, they can feel tired, unmotivated (including lack of libido), grumpy, and have muscle weakness or weight gain. There isn’t much agreement about what is a “good” testosterone level for a man. Most of us in the functional or regenerative areas of medicine think a level of at least 600 is good. Often, higher is even better.


How Our Bodies Detoxify

21/   June, 2017

Last week we started answering the question, “Why Organic?”

While I am not hard-core about eating organic (at least not yet), I am aware every day in my work the large list of endocrine disruptors in our world nowadays. Eating organically grown and farmed food is one way to decrease the toxic load on our bodies.

This week I want to give you a very short summary of the areas of your body involved in the detox process.


Don’t Eat Toxins. Go Organic!

08/   June, 2017

It was a sunny day in Manhattan Beach, California. I was by the ocean, walking my son Anthony when he was about one year old. I was with my friends Vicky, whose daughter was also 1 year old, and Kate, the veteran of the group – her daughter was already two years old.


It takes two to tango

12/   May, 2017

“Tango is the one place where we [women] let men think they are in charge…”

…said the wise tango instructor as she took the women to one side to teach us our moves, while her husband took the men to the other side to learn their leading steps.
