Happy 1st Birthday to Overcoming Overwhelm!

I can’t believe it’s been an entire year since my book came out. And what a year it’s been!

Dozens of podcast and radio interviews.

Articles in some of the best read online magazines.

And of course my reading and book launch at Powell’s City of Books in downtown Portland.

Almost 200 people showed up on a dark/cold/rainy winter night. They ran out of books. And chairs.

My sincere thanks to each of you for your support over the last year. Your encouragement and feedback have fueled my soul.

What an amazing journey so far. And more, of course, to come!

I thought they were ok but certainly not worth $8 a bag. Last weekend my sister came to visit and saw the piles of the leafy green deliciousness that we’d harvested...

How Do You Trust Your Supplement Brand? Here is what to ask them…

Every time a new patient comes into the clinic I have ‘the supplement talk.’ Here’s the thing; no one is regulating the supplement industry. And it is indeed an industry, a big one at that. Does that mean that you can’t trust anything out there? No. It means that you need to be very careful about which supplements you buy. Just because something is expensive,...
