As we are aware, there are all kinds of doctors out there. The medical doctor, the naturopathic doctor, the doctorate kind of doctor, the homeopathic doctor, the aforementioned witch doctor, the doctor of love, Dr. Who, etc. Today I am going to discuss the difference between a naturopathic doctor and a homeopathic doctor. Mostly because I am always confused with

And so it goes…

admin/ September 30, 2015/ Dr. Danielle/

Every year, I try to keep a tab as far as how many times I have been sick with the flu. Optimally, I want to get sick 2-3 times a year, just to keep my immune system on the up and up. If I am getting sick more often, then I know I need to clean things up a bit.

Sowing seeds

admin/ September 30, 2015/ Dr. Danielle/

Now that the cat’s out of the bag and everyone knows I am pregnant with my fourth child…and now that I have given everyone about a week to freak out and ask me if I’m crazy (?!?!!?), I have decided that it would be appropriate to write about pregnancy. And for those of you wondering, I prefer to think of

A little more love, alot less snot

admin/ September 30, 2015/ Dr. Danielle/

I woke up this morning, feeling spry, refreshed, positive to what this new day may bring – then I started sneezing. And it all went to hell. Not only did I hit my head on the fridge door during sneeze #3, I also bit my tongue with sneeze #7, and tripped over my son’s backpack with sneeze #11, all while

Move over soy: why you need to get fish oil

admin/ September 30, 2015/ Dr. Danielle/

That’s right – sit down soy, chlorophyll, and bee pollen, it’s time to make room for the new guy in town: fish oil. Actually, all trends aside, fish oil is quickly becoming one of the most researched alternative medicines, and for good reason. Now, I already know what’s happening as you read this, especially if you are over 40 years

You can’t always get what you want

admin/ September 30, 2015/ Dr. Danielle/

It’s definitely time for another blog. I can’t just bang one out for the purpose of just bangin’ another one out. People are always asking me when I’m gonna write another one. And so I explain to them the very detailed, precise, ornery, sometimes turbulent process of the creative act of writing. No. No, I don’t. Because that was a

Got G.E.R.D.?

admin/ September 30, 2015/ Dr. Danielle/

G.E.R.D. (also known as Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, also known as heartburn) sucks. It hurts. It can take over your every thought and every move. So what is it? GERD is a condition in which your stomach contents regurgitate through your esophageal sphincter causing symptoms. Most commonly, it causes a burning sensation. But it can also cause difficulty or pain on

Calling Dr. DRE

admin/ September 30, 2015/ Dr. Danielle/

Ladies, it’s almost November. Or for men, Movember. UUUUUgggghhhhhh….I hate Movember for two reasons. 1) My baby daddy’s Wolverine-style, all-encompassing, hairy, scratchy mustache that somehow lingers WAY past November. And 2) that despite Movember’s intention of bringing prostate awareness, most men that participate and grow a mustache would still rather pretend that their prostate didn’t exist, and that’s even if

Don’t diagnose a book by its cover

admin/ September 30, 2015/ Dr. Danielle/

Well, that’s not exactly true. Sometimes illness or disease only shows it’s ugly head on the outside. But let’s talk about the inside. And by inside, I mean what is coursing through our blood vessels and nourishing our organs – blood. Some of us vomit at the sight of it, while others see it as a pinnacle of inspiration (and

There’s a hole in your bucket

admin/ September 30, 2015/ Dr. Danielle/

My inspiration for today’s blog came from my 5 year olds rendition of “There’s a whole in the bucket”…you know….”dear Liza, dear Liza”….what I didn’t know is that the song, in its entirety, has about 30 verses, and it all circles back to the hole in the bucket! Genius, really. But beside the point. The song made me think about the
