Ballroom Dancing: A Great Brain Health Strategy

We all want lifelong brain health. There is simple memory decline that my friends and I like to call “senior moments;” then there is a condition called age-related cognitive decline and finally the serious and ultimately fatal impairments like Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

Alzheimer’s – Are you afraid you’re losing it?

Our American culture pre-programs people to believe that cognitive function declines as we age. There are countless jokes, even television sitcoms that exploit Grandma leaving the car keys in the freezer or Grandpa getting lost on the way home from the grocery or groping for a word or name.

While we may chuckle at the foibles […]

Eat More Salt to Restore Your Health

From Kathleen:
This is an excerpt from our  book, The Calcium Lie II: What Your Doctor Still Doesn’t Know by Kathleen Barnes and Robert Thompson, M.D. It may seem counter-intuitive to you and certainly flies in the face of what most doctors will tell you, but eating more salt may be the answer to many health […]

The whey to jazz up your morning or afternoon smoothie

A morning smoothie is a great way to start the day or to pick up flagging energy in mid-afternoon. I’m an afternoon smoothie person, since I’ve discovered that anything sweet in the morning, even if it’s just healthy fruit, tends to increase my appetite throughout the day. But that little bit of sweetness as a […]

Take Off Your Shoes!

This is an excerpt from my book, Our Toxic World: A Survivor’s Guide

Do you take your shoes off at the door? It’s not an Eastern or hippie-dippy thing to do. It makes good, common sense.

Just think about where your feet are during the day:

You’ve walked on city sidewalks that have been salted and sprayed […]

Keep off the White Trash Roller Coaster: Eat brown rice!

My husband is working with a new chiropractor, Dr. Marie Andersson in Hendersonville, NC. I am vastly impressed with her knowledge that goes far beyond the stack ‘em and crack ‘em school of chiropractic.

Among her admonitions: Lose the white trash! That means we should eat nothing made with white flour, rice or potatoes.

Her advice: Love […]

Get Your House Green and Clean

This is an excerpt from Kathleen Barnes’ book, Our Toxic World: A Survivor’s Guide

Coconut Water Delivers On Health Hype

I became a huge fan of coconut water when I lived in the Philippines, where this juice of the young coconut is called “buko.”
Street vendors expertly hacked away the thick green coconut husk with machetes, exposing the tender inner flesh that surrounds the delectable and healthy water. They’d plunk the balloon-like flesh into a plastic […]
