    If you experience headaches, fatigue, muscle pains, constipation, heartburn, anxiety attacks, food intolerances, joint and muscle weakness, dry skin, chapped lips, water retention, digestive problems or bad breath, you may be suffering from dehydration. Many people are dehydrated and are not even aware of it. Even mild dehydration can impair cognitive function, such as short-term memory, alertness and concentration. Read more

    toxin-solutionTHE TOXIN SOLUTION: How Hidden Poisons in the Air, Water, Food, and Products We Use Are Destroying Our Health—AND WHAT WE CAN DO TO FIX IT

    Chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, type II diabetes, obesity, dementia, and arthritis are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. Not only are these conditions common, but they are costly and often preventable health problems. Despite advances in modern medicine and technology, today more than ever, people are suffering from chronic illnesses through all stages of life.

Over this time, I have taught tens of thousands of students and doctors, authored or co-authored 11 books, written over 100 articles in scientific journals and cared for tens of thousands of patients either directly or indirectly through sophisticated corporate wellness programs that I designed and helped implement.

  • Resolution Series: Hair Analysis to Determine Toxin Levels

    by Paula Gallagher | January 11, 2017

    hair-analysisHair analysis is an excellent, non-invasive way to test for tissue levels of heavy metals and minerals. It can provide important information regarding recent and ongoing exposure to potentially toxic metals, such as mercury and arsenic. As protein is synthesized in the hair follicles, elements are incorporated permanently into the hair. Scalp hair is easy to sample, and because it grows an average of one to two centimeters per month, it contains a "temporal record" of element metabolism and exposure to toxic elements. The levels of elements in hair correlate with levels in organs and other tissues. Hair analysis testing is now available directly through Village Green. Read more

    cruciferous-vegetablesThe parties have come and gone and 2017 is here. The liver can take a beating with all the overindulgence that happens over the holidays. Now is a good time to consider giving this vital organ a bit of support.

    As a major organ of detoxification in the body, the liver must be able to process thousands of chemicals from food, your body, the environment, medications, and chemicals released from infectious organisms. Poor diet, overeating, excessive intake of fats, sugars, alcohol and environmental agents can all negatively affect liver health. Your life depends on the liver's role in protecting your body from toxin build-up. Read more

  • Resolution Series: Cleansing Your Body From the Inside Out

    by Paula Gallagher | January 9, 2017

    lemonsAlthough I am not usually one to make resolutions (see here), I also know that more than half of you do. Weight loss, getting fit and practicing good health are three of the top goals people set for themselves. Over the next few weeks we are going to provide information to help you achieve and maintain your health goals. This week I will focus on cleansing your body, or detoxification.

    Knowing where to start can be challenging. Before jumping into any diet or exercise regime, I recommend a cleanse. Though the body naturally detoxifies itself, with subtle diet changes and some nutritional supplements, we can help aid the process. Read more
