Beer: Could It Be a Healthy Part of Life?

Beer the most widely consumed fermented beverage in the world.  Let me repeat: The most widely consumed fermented beverage in the WORLD.  And when you come from a functional medicine perspective, the word fermented is like gold.  Fermented foods and beverages have been around as a method of preservation for food since before refrigeration and using bacteria and yeast to turn food into probiotic powerhouses makes them healthy for us.  That probiotic content is something people pay big money for in the world of supplements because of the profound impact it has on the health of their gut microbiome, and in turn, many disease processes like Crohn’s disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, anxiety disorders, and even obesity.  Beer is simple, but the art is in crafting something tasty out of essentially water, starch, brewer’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae), and hops. {Side note: The … Read More

I am a functional medicine doctor focusing on holistic care, an anatomy and physiology professor, a locum chiropractor, an IU alum, a Palmer grad, and a fan of loving life.  My work starts with identifying root issues that may require testing for underlying infections, nutritional deficiencies, adrenal fatigue, and autoimmunity.  Once the root of the issue is identified, ancestral nutrition is a foundation for my program.  I wanted to marry the ideas of holistic healthcare and wellness coaching. Therefore,  I am a doctor that takes a case from diagnostics all the way down to how to implement the necessary changes into your individual lifestyle through acute treatment phases, transition phases, and wellness stages prior to release. Aside from family, friends, and my career, there are tons of things that I love doing which require me to be healthy. I have taken on the task of trying to educate as many people as possible of things they can do to KEEP themselves healthy. I preach whole foods, exercise, relaxation, and having fun; that’s life folks! There is nothing better than having an impact on a patient’s health because it has an effect on EVERY SINGLE person around them. Happy, healthy people are great to be around, and I pride myself on creating more!

When it comes to food, there’s nothing more important than having nourishing, delicious, yet approachable options that can be shared with friends and family. Every recipe featured will meet those criteria! All of the recipes start with whole foods and end with a dish that tastes amazing in a minimal amount of time. Having said that, some dishes will be well worth the extra effort, and I encourage you to take the plunge and try them out. When creating healthful food ideas for the masses, I avoid the use of grains, dairy, legumes, refined sugars, and prepackaged items. This leaves ingredients such as pastured meats, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds, with a touch of unrefined sugars. Peruse everything from Breakfast to Dinner, but don’t forget to peek at my favorite category: Dessert!
