Professional Tips

Do you ever wish you could sit down with a health, nutrition or lifestyle medicine expert and pick their brain? What drew them to natural medicine? How have they navigated their way through the jungle of health news, advice and research? What have they learned in their years of study and practice that could help you live a healthier life? How do they understand healthy living? While we can’t ship your favorite lifestyle medicine expert to you house so you can chat about these things in person (which stinks!) we can offer you a Professional Tips series! Here, we share interviews and essays from leading health experts in which they explore everything from their own personal backgrounds to their practical advice for healthy living! It’s like having a guru in your screen, if not your kitchen!
