summertime, & the living is easy

The article “Make Your Summer Sun-Safe” on p. 30 is one of my favorites. If you’re planning a summer trip, you’ll especially appreciate author Lisa Turner’s sun protection advice. But even if you’re not going on vacation or spending a lot of time in the sun, this article is a must-read. There is so much confusion about sun exposure, skin cancer, and sunscreens.

herbs that protect against lyme disease

Our population of ticks that carry Lyme disease and other illnesses is rapidly increasing. But even if you’re bitten, the right herbs can help to prevent debilitating consequences, such as fever, pain, fatigue, and memory loss—which sometimes become chronic. “Ticks have been biting humans since there have been humans,” says Bill Rawls, MD, author of Unlocking Lyme: Myths, Truths, and Practical Solutions for Chronic Lyme Disease. “Whether or not they cause illness depends on your immune system.” How Ticks Infect You Harmful microbes carried by ticks include Borrelia, which causes Lyme disease, and an ever-increasing variety of others. Rawls likens these microbes to terrorists because they hide in white blood cells, are carried to all the tissues in the body, and then hijack the immune system so that it can’t kill them off. Herbs…

fody foods

When I was growing up, we didn’t talk about “bathroom issues” in polite company, if at all. Unfortunately, that reluctance persists today, and makes life even more difficult for people with IBS, or Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Steven Singer wants to change all that. Not only does he want to lead people to awareness about their illness, but he wants to offer a convenient and healthy way for them to make the dietary changes necessary to their well-being and comfort. “As I learned more about IBS and the low-FODMAP diet, I knew I had to do something to make it more accessible. It felt less…

in the spotlight: cooking with cbd

When wellness expert and recipe developer Leah Vanderveldt sought out CBD oil to manage her anxiety and severe period pain, she found calming, anti-inflammatory relief—and culinary inspiration. The cookbook author devised dozens of ways to make the hemp-derived compound (which, unlike its counterpart THC, has no psychoactive effect) more inviting to those uneasy with its cannabis origins and earthy taste. “I found CBD, while really popular at the moment, was intimidating for a lot of people when it first started gaining momentum,” Vanderveldt says. “When I talked about using it, I found people to be curious, but skeptical—or even scared to use it. So I wanted to clear up any misconceptions and share different ways for people to incorporate it into their routine. I know that the flavor of CBD is…
