I was recently asked for some Best Of tips and thought I’d share my replies with you. Email me your additions too.

Here are the lists:

1) Top 10 Health Breakthroughs for the 21st Century

  • Vitamin D is a hormone not a vitamin and we need a lot more of it and the right kind for optimal health than previously thought (vitamin D3 1000 -2000iu daily).
  • Probiotics – especially the Bifidobacterium strain – improve digestive function for optimal immune function as well.

  • Resolve to really experience your emotions as opposed to eating / drinking them away – be sad (skip the sugar or alcohol), be tired (pass on the coffee or energy drink), etc. (more…)
