The Skinny On Artificial Sweeteners from Dr. Wilson

artificial-sweeteners-copyI have always told my patients not to use artificial sweeteners and to use sugar (raw and organic, if possible) in moderation.  Many do not realize this (thanks, in part to some tricky advertising), but artificial sweeteners are pure chemicals. And what’s more, your body has the extra burden of detoxifying them.

So today I picked up my “SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN” magazine (Shhhh – I am a closet science geek!) and low and behold I found an article on this very topic entitled, “Artificial Sweeteners May Change Our Gut Bacteria in Dangerous Ways.”

I read the article for you (wasn’t sure you had a copy lying around) and it states that artificial sweeteners Read More »

Meet Our New Optimal Coconut Oil Pulling Kit… And You Can WIN It Now!

Optimal Coconut Oil Pulling CNo matter the day and wherever I may be, I begin each morning the same way. With oil pulling! If you have been curious about this practice or wanted to try it but just wasn’t sure how to get started you than are in luck: We are excited to share with you our new East West Essentials Optimal Coconut Oil Pulling Kit, which contains directions and all the tools (and coconut oil!) you need to get started!

“Oil pulling” is an ancient, 3,000 year old technique for detoxing the mouth of harmful bacteria that can cause poor oral health such as bad breath, plaque build up and stains on your teeth. The Optimal Coconut Oil Pulling Kit also helps prevent bacteria from entering the entire body via the mouth and causing more severe health problems such as heart disease, inflammation, acne, and gingivitis to name a few. I have been oil pulling for a few years now and my teeth are whiter than ever and my dentist has noticed a decrease in plaque. Key benefits of oil pulling include:

  • Whitens teeth
  • Freshens bad breath
  • Improves acne
  • Boosts Immune system
  • Acts as a natural anti-inflammatory
  • Reduces cavities
  • Protects heart from plaque

At East West Essentials we are making it easier than ever with our new Optimal Coconut Oil Pulling Kit! And to celebrate its launch we are giving away THREE kits!

To win our giveaway, do one of the following… it only takes Read More »

Sure, You Know “Local” Honey Treats Allergies… But Just What Is Considered Local?

localhoneyMost of us have heard that a great cure for allergies is raw, local honey.  The idea being that the honey acts like a vaccine. Bees that jump from one flower to the next end up covered in pollen spores, which are then transferred to their honey. Eating that honey — just a spoonful a day — can build up immunity through gradual exposure to the local allergens that can make life so miserable for allergy sufferers.

But what exactly constitutes as “local honey?” How far away is still local? We decided to ask our co-founder and holistic nutritionist Heather Wilson for the scoop on this popular seasonal allergy treatment. Here is what she says:

Raw honey from local sources can be Read More »

Survive Cold & Flu Season With These Two Tricks From Chinese Medicine

cold-remedies-85324443-resizedIt’s that time of the year! A lot of my patients have been coming in with scratchy throats and headaches, feeling achy and just plain exhausted. Others (or their family members) are down with the flu and they are just waiting in line to get it next. Well, I am here to tell you that isn’t necessary… you can fight and prevent the flu, it doesn’t have to be a given that you will get sick this winter.  Chinese Medicine (my specialty) has some wonderful, natural remedies for those cold symptoms and you are in luck because I am sharing two of my favorites with you!

We believe in using diaphoresis (sweating) as a therapeutic treatment for chills, fever and overall achy flu-like symptoms. Your can bundle up in warm towels and blankets and drink hot teas to induce a sweat or pour Epsom salts into a hot bath, staying in the tub until you begin to sweat. Once the sweating begins you hop out, put on cotton PJs (if you have, cotton breathes well) and get into bed. You will feel immediate relief and your fever will break after the sweat.
