7 Super-Healthy Foods That Are also Budget Friendly

I’m sure if you’ve read my articles, or articles from other physicians promoting “clean eating” there’s always some sticker shock involved. When you’re told the only way to be healthy is to eat all organic, or to consume heavy amounts of “pasture-fed” this and “wild-caught” that, the sound of a ringing cash register doesn’t stop. Let me be honest with you. Yes, sometimes eating healthy can be pricey. But like a popular meme goes, “Have you ever priced out cancer treatment?” Again, I’d rather my patients spend their hard-earned money on food instead of doctor’s visits, medicines and even supplements. This is why such a large portion of our practice at Robinhood Integrative Health is shifting towards helping patients (as...

Why Don’t More Doctors Recommend Lemon Balm

If you were a doctor and you wanted to help people maintain vibrant health… and you discovered an herb capable of helping with blood sugar, cardiovascular issues, thyroid health and more, do you think you’d recommend it?

Try This Out for Sore Knees, Neck, Back and More

You know what’s a pain in the neck? A pain, in the neck. Well, pain anywhere in the body is never fun to deal with.
