Fasting seems to be the latest health trend and you’ve probably heard of fasting before. For example, Fasting as a spiritual and religious activity. However, you might not know that besides powerful metaphysical aspect related to fasting, it has a potential of a universal cure. Fasting is not simply a physical process in which you restrain yourself from eating and drinking.

Fasting is NOT about Starvation. It is about using the tools we have as human beings to optimize our relationship with food and nutrition.

There are different forms of fasting for health purpose, and the most traditional form is to abstain from food completely and consume water only – Water Only Fast. The most popular type of fasting is Religious Fast. Other types include: Intermittent Fasting, Alternate Day Fasting, Time-Restricted Feeding, Prolonged Fast, Juice Fast & Fasting Mimicking Diet.

In my practice, I have seen multiple times when FASTING was truly a Quick Fix & Magic Bullet.

But, LET ME WARN YOU:

I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO YOUR FASTING ONLY UNDER MEDICAL OR/AND PROFESSIONAL SUPERVISION. THERE ARE A VARIETY OF FASTING OPTIONS THAT MIGHT BE HARMFUL OR HEALING FOR YOUR BODY. People taking medications and having multiple health conditions – must consult a health care practitioner. LET ME HELP YOU decide if fasting is right for you.

Magical Benefits Of Fasting (if done right)…

  • Fasting is calorie restriction and we usually spend so much energy thinking about sources to get food, planning to get food, food preparation, and then eating and digesting it. This whole process consumes a ton of energy. Fasting helps us saving a lot of time and preserve energy.
  • Fasting also let the digestive system rest. Most of the body’s energy gets consumed in breaking down, digesting and then assimilating the food. If you fast, then this energy can be used by higher functioning of the body like cleansing, rationalizing and getting creative. After fast people claim greater mental clarity and get spiritual gains.
  • When people refrain from eating, the body diverts its energy towards detoxification, repairing and healing process. People perceive that while fasting they become energy deficient and nutritionally deprived. Fasting turns on the detoxification system of the body and starts eliminating waste and poison accumulated in your cells and tissues.
  • During fast body consumes all of the stored glycogen and after that it starts burning off fat for energy. Here things get magical and people will start losing weight. Toxins are stored in fat cells and body actually releases stored toxins from the storage. After that body escorts them out of it.
  • Aids in release of toxic waste in the body. Also pathogenic yeast, Candida, and bacteria like parasites live off sugar and if you eliminate its food source they will eventually die and leave the body.
  • Burns up stored sugar in the body and leads to weight loss. As weight gain is due to the toxic overload in fatty tissues.
  • It is a radical cure for blood sugar imbalance in the body. During fasting body absorbs glycogen stored in the liver it becomes more sensitive to insulin in the blood.
  • Helps the body burning fat for energy and as a result, produces ketones and a protein called brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). These activate new brain stem cells and cognitive function is improved.
  • Improves immune function, renders anti-aging benefits, and decrease inflammation levels.
  • Renders multiple beauty benefits like clear skin and yields greater spiritual energy.

After my own independent research & personal experience I concluded that fasting is not only safe for many of us, but it can also play a crucial role in promoting overall health and longevity.

That is why I incorporated it into my practice.

Maximizing benefits with a “prolonged fast”

One of the most beneficial forms of fasting is what’s known as a “prolonged fast.” This is 2 or more days of little or no caloric intake. But compliance for a prolonged water-only fast can be difficult…even daunting.

Thankfully, over a year ago, I discovered a new program to help…ProLon.

ProLon is a 5-day low calorie, plant-based meal program that provides the same benefits of a water-only “fast”…BUT WITH FOOD. It’s the first “fast-mimicking diet” ever created, and it really works!

ProLon is safe…convenient…simple…and delicious. Seriously, I couldn’t believe that my body could be “tricked” into fasting mode while eating tasty food like fresh olives, kale and seed crackers, hearty soups, and sweet nut bars, but was! I, and a number of my clients who already tried it, were convinced…and think you will be too.

Let’s Do This Together!

I am starting my 5-Day Fasting Mimicking Diet on March 4th. This is a great opportunity to jump-start your spring wellness plan and give your body a much-needed tune-up for summer’s swimsuits! And…I’m inviting you to join me so that we can fast together!

If you’re interested in participating, please visit our online store to order your ProLon kit no later than February 28th. You’ll need to register, go to “SHOP BUNDLES” & click on “PROLON” to place your order (this way you’ll receive the kit on time to start the Fasting Mimicking diet along with me!).

We’ll support each other…and I’ll send out daily texts and/or emails.

And, if you have an questions or concerns…please get in touch at 646-436-5311.

Getting vitamins intravenously is getting more and more popular. It’s no longer only reserved for celebrities, professional athletes and wellness enthusiasts. Intravenous Therapies have amazing benefits and a quick fix concept.

Eating healthy, being active and feeling good are important but with peoples’ schedules becoming busier and busier, there are days when we have so little time left to take care of ourselves. Days when we just need…

  • an extra boost of energy because of physical exhaustion/fatigue or a special event in your life
  • or immune system boost for weather changes or cold/flu
  • a terrible hangover you need to get over quickly
  • jet lag to get you back on track
  • before or after sport activities like marathons

Intravenous infusions can get you back on track and on your feet within hours…rather than the days or weeks when you take your regular measures. Intravenous Vitamin Therapy is an ideal way to replenish your body instantly.

What is intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy?

Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy is a method of administering vitamins, minerals, amino and antioxidants directly into the bloodstream.

What is the difference between IV therapy and oral vitamins?

Since oral vitamins must bypass the acidic nature of the stomach and high-dose vitamins may possibly cause irritation, IV therapy allows for increased absorption right from the start. The second your infusion begins, vitamins, minerals, and other powerful nutrients are instantly circulated through your bloodstream and absorbed by your cells that need it the most; there’s no waiting for the liver or stomach to play catch-up.

How long does a single session last?

Depending upon the protocol, sessions of IV therapy can be 40 minutes to an hour and a half.

What protocol should I do?

After assessing your current symptoms, needs and wellness goals, I will suggest the best IV Protocol for you at present time and I love personalizing it but adding extra ingredients when necessary based on your unique needs.

Is IV therapy safe?

IV therapy is extremely safe. Before an individual receives any treatment whatsoever, vitals signs are tested, blood pressure is monitored, and health history is carefully evaluated. Every IV therapy session is performed under strict medical supervision. After the treatment ends, patients can resume their activities and daily responsibilities immediately.

Who administers and supervises the IV therapy?

In my office, I personally will be preparing, administering, & supervising your IV Therapy. I have been doing this type of therapy for over 10 years and I have been giving Vitamin Infusions for 2 years while working part-time in a very well-reputed Complimentary Medicine Center in Midtown Manhattan that specializes in Intravenous Nutrient Therapy. Last December, I did a presentation on this topic at A4M World Congress on Anti-Aging Medicine in Las Vegas.

In my Brooklyn office, I have more than 10 IV therapies to administer that may benefit you. My clients have 5 that are the top favorites…

  • Immunizer…to strengthen your immune system
  • Revitalizer…to help overcome hangover in NO time
  • Energizer…to increase your energy levels INSTANTLY & keep it
  • Glamorizer…to support healthy hair, skin & nails
  • Rejuvenizer…to defy your age – a natural anti-aging formula

So, as the fall and winter weather takes hold, consider how IV Vitamin Therapy can benefit you and your family…especially post the holiday season celebrations!

And, if you’ve experienced the benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy, we’d love to hear about your experience below!

Probiotics are friendly bacteria that help your body to thrive on multiple levels! You can’t overestimate the significance of probiotics, they’re good bugs…healthy flora in your gut.

If you would ask me to choose only one supplement that I believe, in general, is a must…I would pick probiotics as my first personal and professional choice.

The bacteria in your gut is crucially important, not to just digestive health, but overall health. Think about it…at least 80% of your immune system is in your GI tract. Here’s some very recent research on what effects healthy microflora and how strong and long its impact.

Low Fiber Diet Caused Loss of Specific Bacterial Species

The study, which was published in January in Nature, used mice specially bred in aseptic environments to ensure that their intestines were empty of microbes. They were then populated with microbes from the intestine of a human being and split into two groups. One group received a high-fiber diet and the other was given a low-fiber diet. Except for fiber content, the diets were identical in protein, fat and calories.

Although the groups started the study with identical gut-bacteria profiles, within a few weeks there were differences…described by the researchers as “massive.”

Specifically, the microbial ecosystems of the low-fiber group became depleted…and the diversity of the bacteria populating their guts plunged as well. In fact, over half of the bacterial species were diminished in population by 75 percent…and some species of beneficial bacteria had disappeared without a trace.

After seven weeks, the low-fiber mice were switched to a high-fiber diet. Although some of the animals experienced improvements in their gut-bacteria profiles, the recovery was only partial…and over two-thirds of the extinguished bacteria species never came back.

The findings are troubling, because they show that once a population has experienced the extinction of beneficial bacteria species, proper diet may not be enough to bring them back for individuals in that group.

Internal Deficiencies May Be Passed Down the Line to Future Generations

Even more disturbing is the fact that irreversible loss of specific beneficial microbes was apparently passed down to descendants…four generations later. After mice had been maintained on low-fiber diets for a few generations, researchers found that each generation’s gut-bacteria populations became less diverse.

By the fourth generation, the mice only had a quarter of the various bacterial species present in their great-grandparents’ guts…the other three-quarters had become extinct.

How Does Gut Bacteria Benefit Us?

The intestinal ecosystem consists of literally trillions of bacteria…and thousands of different species…which are acquired through exposure over the course of a lifetime.

Not only are many of them beneficial…but we couldn’t survive without them.

According to senior study author Justin Sonnenburg, Ph.D., associate professor of microbiology and immunology at the Stanford University School of Medicine, beneficial bacteria ward off disease-causing pathogens, “train” the immune system, guide the development of tissues, and even play a role in mental processes.

As odd as it sounds, beneficial intestinal bacteria…acquired from our mothers during childbirth and infancy…are a valuable legacy.

The Standard American Diet Lacks the Fiber Needed to Fuel Friendly Bacteria

Fiber, which is actually indigestible by human enzymes, is the main food source for friendly gut bacteria. Fruits and vegetables, oatmeal, nuts, bran and whole grains are great sources of fiber.

Since the 1950’s, the skyrocketing popularity of extremely low-fiber, highly-processed convenience foods in America has resulted in people only ingesting about 15 grams of fiber a day…roughly a tenth of what our hunter-gatherer forefathers consumed.

Studies show that rural agrarian populations have much more diverse bacterial populations than those living in industrialized countries… and often possess bacteria that are absent from the intestinal tracts of those eating a low-fiber diet.

Although low-fiber diets seem to be the primary reason for the depletion of intestinal microbiota, researchers say that widespread use of antibiotics, a decrease in breastfeeding and an increase in C-sections also play a role.

Could Our Children and Grandchildren Pay a Price for Our Unhealthy Eating Habits?

Of course, the study was performed on mice, not people. The rapid reproductive rates and short life span of mice means that three and four generations can be easily studied…a process that would take decades if humans were the subjects.

However, the explosion of low-fiber processed foods has occurred within the past 70 years…roughly two generations for humans. And these study results give rise to a troubling question: within four human generations, will we find that populations of irreplaceable gut bacteria have been lost?

Experts say that the low-fiber American diet is already taking a toll on human health. Researchers have found that less–diverse intestinal microbiota are associated with a range of conditions, including autism, allergies, asthma, diabetes and obesity…all of which are on the rise.

It seems like a no-brainer: eating a high-fiber diet (and avoiding the excessive use of antibiotics) is an easy fix for a situation that could ultimately have devastating consequences for human health.

When you have trouble turning down things like wine, French fries, pie and so forth, a detox of some kind can help you get control over yourself and help you overcome those addictions that develop.

So as you’re packing your child’s lunch when they’ve gone back to school…or your own, consider substituting the cookie with a healthier, high fiber fruit instead!

Have you made changes in your eating habits to include foods higher in fiber? We’d love to hear about your successes below!

Forgiveness…

“Forgiveness is the most powerful thing that you can do for your physiology and your spirituality. Yet, it remains one of the least attractive things to us, largely because our egos rule so unequivocally. To forgive is somehow associated with saying that it is all right, that we accept the evil deed. But this is not forgiveness. Forgiveness means that you fill yourself with love and you radiate that love outward and refuse to hang onto the venom or hatred that was engendered by the behaviors that caused the wounds.” ~ Wayne Dyer

Forgiving is not easy, even for the most enlightened among us. If you’ve been allowing your present health to be controlled by past hurts, I urge you to commit to forgiving.

These steps can help:

Step 1

Talk to sympathetic friends and family about your desire to forgive. Chatting with others is tremendously comforting.

Step 2

Write a letter to the person you’d like to forgive. You can decide whether or not you send it.

Step 3

See the situation from the other person’s perspective—your own perspective may change.

Step 4

Don’t forget to forgive yourself. Sometimes we can be harshest with ourselves.

Step 5

Understand that you are responsible for your own attitude. Don’t let holding a grudge keep you from feeling free, open, and powerful in your own life.

Step 6

Forgive and watch how much easier your relationship with many other aspects of your life gets.

So what hurt are YOU holding on to?






Tap into the power of FORGIVENESS and share with us the difference it’s made in the quality of your health and your life!

A body detox can help you in many ways…maybe even ways that you haven’t ever considered.

Doing a detox not only makes you feel better, it also help you get rid of bad habits.

There are a variety of ways to detox and you get to choose the one that works best for your lifestyle. For example, you can detox just by drinking more water…or go on a water fast. You can try drinking more green juice…or simply choose to eat clean.

Detoxing Offers A Variety of Benefits. It Can…

Jump-Start Your Diet

If you have problems turning down food that is not good for you, and you’re snacking a lot, a planned detox such as a juice cleanse can help jump-start your new diet. It can help you get over cravings, shrink your stomach and deliver more nutrition to your body to help you become stronger.

Increase Energy

A good detox can help you get your energy back. This is because you will get rid of bloating, food reactions, and other things that get in the way of a good night sleep, like caffeine or junk food.

Improve Your Skin

When you let your digestive track rest and drop certain foods from your diet such as dairy, you will improve your skin pretty quickly. Most people see a change in their skin within just a couple of weeks when they restrict their food intake.

Help Prevent Chronic Disease

Many people who go on a detox plan such as a water detox, green juice detox or other similarly strict plan, end up preventing and even reversing chronic disease. People often see marked improvement and a lowering of medication for diseases like type II diabetes and high blood pressure.

Overcome Addiction

When you have trouble turning down things like wine, French fries, pie and so forth, a detox of some kind can help you get control over yourself and help you overcome those addictions that develop.

It’s clear that if you detox your body, you can improve your life substantially.

If you’re ready to feel lighter, have more energy and improve other health concerns, give detoxing a try. It’s super important to learn about the different types of detox methods you can try. Each detox will help you take care of various problems that you may have.

Have you tried detoxing before? We’d love to hear about your successes below!

It might seem like a Healthy Lifestyle isn’t easy to achieve AND is hard to maintain.

However, if you try to adapt JUST ONE new beneficial habit at a time (per month) or quit one habit that no longer sustains you, you can completely TRANSFORM YOUR HEALTH ONE HABIT AT A TIME.

There are certain must haves and dos that can dramatically help you in attaining the healthy lifestyle you seek.

Stay Hydrated

The very first habit to develop is to drink a good amount of water to keep your body hydrated.

Around 60% of your body weight is comprised of water. Water is the most vital nutrient that is used in every function of your body. It keeps your skin youthful and healthy.

How much water you specifically need to get the benefits of proper hydration depends on multiple factors of your daily living: environment, season, stage of life, body weight, physical activity levels, diet, health concerns, etc. Check out what the Mayo Clinic recommends.

Spend Time Outside

Do your best to spend some time outdoors daily…it has a profound effect on your health.

We got used to getting everything done at our fingertips without leaving the house or office. Spending a great amount of time on cell phones, shopping online including the fresh produce, exercising on machines placed indoor and do online shopping as well.

Make sure to get out of the office or house for at least an hour a day to expose your body to outside atmosphere…let your body do the basic things: get some sunlight and take fresh air.

Maximize the benefits by walking briskly or jogging or simply walking leisurely and listening to the music or even having a phone conversation but, please, GET OUT & MOVE if that’s not something you do every day for a sufficient amount of time!

Cut Down On Sugar

Rates of chronic diseases worldwide is increasing day by day due to heavy consumption of sugar…it’s playing a major role in America’s failing health as well.

Apart from increasing your weight, sugar affects the insulin levels and increases the risk of heart disease, cancer, acne, and multiple digestive issues as well.

Opt for natural sources of sugar like fresh fruits and raw unprocessed honey in moderate amounts!

Meditate

Meditation is a great activity for your mind and body…it’s a wonderful stress management strategy.

One of the leading issues that affects Modern America is stress. It entirely disrupts all your bodily systems and negatively affects your health in general.

In many cases, it is impossible to eliminate stress. However, a few simple meditation techniques will help you handle stressful situations better. Meditation can also improve allergies, anxiety, fatigue, heart disease, pain, sleep disorders, and depression.

Eat Clean

It’s essential to feed your body with a diet full of a variety of micronutrients: vitamins, minerals, and balanced macronutrients: proteins, good fats, and healthy “slow” carbohydrates.

Proper nutrition facilitates all bodily activities and functions. Avoid junk food and convenience foods but add organic fruits, vegetables and healthy fats & proteins to your diet.

According to Bethenny Frankel, “Your diet is a bank account. Good food choices are good investments.”

Sleep Tight

These days there are over 70 different sleep disorders and many people experience daytime sleepiness. Chronic lack of sleep leads to irritability, diminished focus, impaired memory, apathy, delayed emotional responses and moodiness.

It is important to take the steps to improve sleep quality by turning off all electronic devices, avoiding alcohol and caffeine in the evening, and ensuring a comfortable room temperature. Meditation or yoga before bedtime is also very helpful in promoting better sleep patterns.
