All Natural Oral Health + Groton Wellness

My token fun fact about myself in every ice breaker I’ve been forced to participate in is that I don’t have any cavities. So you can imagine my dismay (read: devastation) when I discovered I am no longer cavity free. Disappointment consumed me, with a sprinkle of confusion. I eat well, floss daily, brush regularly, and keep the sugar to a minimum. So what was the deal?

Back to School Meal Planning with Whole Foods Boston

For as long as I live no kind of excitement will parallel that of that first day of school during years 5-11 of my existence. My mom would shuffle us all outside and take a photo in our new outfits. Smiles stretched a mile long and backpacks were pulled up to our ears. Its contents included crisp new trapper keepers, floppy disks, and 1-inch binders (really dating myself here). With lunch boxes crowed with sandwiches and snacks.

Cambridge City Guide

While I typically say I live in Boston when asked, I technically live in Cambridge (a little neighborhood about 2 miles outside the city. It is my favorite place in the universe. I love my neighborhood and the food is divine and there is always something to walk to or do. Below are a few of my favorite spots!

Hormone Balancing

After many recommendations for books regarding women’s health and hormone balancing, I decided to read a few and compile some highlights. I highly, highly, highly recommend reading these on your own. They are incredible resources to have on hand / in your hands. Most of the below notes are very general recommendations for hormone balancing. Keep in mind, in order to have the most effective protocol, you must work with a practitioner based on your own individual hormone levels.

On My Bookshelf

This is the nerd version of a shelfie. Not beauty or pantry products, but books. It is my compilation of health-related reads that I’ve amassed in 25 years (an ever-growing list). Some of them are mentioned on my frequently asked questions page, but this is a more comprehensive list, divided by category. I hope it’s helpful, and feel free to leave some of your favorites in the comments section below!

Seasonal Allergies

Allergeeeez lousie, nothing’s worse than the warmer weather finally arriving, and being stuck at home with a box of tissues and benedryl as your sidekick. While some people tend to get rocked every year, I’ve noticed my symptoms wax and wane – sometimes I don’t have them at all, and sometimes I’m Rudolph with sneezing being the soundtrack to my summer. This could be due largely in part to the gut brain axis, as sometimes I feel a

Fertility Awareness Method + Wink

I am an advocate for curiosity and getting to know yourself extensibly as opposed to just adapting the habits that you see others doing that work for them. By knowing yourself more, if an issue presents itself, you’re able to be an active participant in your patient care, guiding your practitioner based on your unique symptoms, rather than having the practitioner project the average woman’s symptoms onto you. And this is what the fertility awareness method is. To quote

Travel Tips

Traveling used to be a huge source of anxiety for me, constantly wondering if I’d be able to maintain my usual routine and lifestyle. This happened after I studied abroad for a year in college and tossed on around 15 pounds from the ocnstant amount of traveling (read: eating) I was doing. After that, I became really restrictive in that I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the travel itself, as I was so concerned about keeping up with my

NEW YORK CITY

Recently traveled to NYC for my Wellness Meet up and loved my airbnb so much that I figured I’d make a little travel guide for the city. Unfortunately only had a few days there, so the eating list is much shorter than it should be. In fact, I’m a little disappointed in it. Which only means I have to be back soon.
