Thoughts on food, supplements, and health — by Stephanie Ewals
I have been doing a sugar detox with my RESTART students. It has been nine months since my last detox which went off with out a hitch. This time around it feels like it is taking forever to get over with and it has only been a week. I am also on the Autoimmune protocol which eliminates the nightshade veggies and nuts and seeds so I don’t have my good old stash of nuts to fall back on.Read More
There is a face of Hashimoto’s and Hypothyroidism. That face is your neighbor. That face is your co worker. That face is your boss. That face is the person checking you out at the store.
It is estimated that 12% of Americans have or will have a thyroid problem in their lifetime. Around 20 million Americans have either hypo or hyperthyroidism,Read More
I have loved sugar my whole life. Who hasn’t really. I grew up having dessert after every dinner we had. We had a steady rotation of chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cake (lovingly called crazy cake), apple, cherry and blueberry crisp (made from canned fruit). Standard fare in the 80’s. I became addicted to sugar at a very young age and still struggle with it well in to my 40’s.Read More
Insomnia. It comes and goes. It is Wednesday and so far since the beginning of the week I have had one good nights sleep. I am not a spring chicken and not getting good sleep deeply affects me. Foggy thinking. Heavy head. Poor decision making. I have three kids that I take care of largely by myself. My other have travels often for work.Read More

Last Tuesday was National Night Out (I think it is called something else now) and our neighborhood makes hamburgers and hot dogs for the event and everyone else brings a dish to share. We were discussing hamburgers and a seasoning someone brought that made the burgers tasty. I didn’t have any because I wasn’t sure it was gluten free but I was telling them about making burgers that were half chopped bacon so basically 50% burger and 50% bacon. They are really the most delicious hamburger. Someone said that was funny that someone so “healthy” would suggest eating a burger like that. Just goes to show that people are still soooo mislead by the media about what is healthy.Read More
The regulation of our blood sugar is so important to our adrenal health. The two things really go hand in hand. If blood sugar regulation is not working well then you cannot achieve health. It is THAT important. Blood sugar dysregulation leads to oxidative stress. Basically what this means is that there is more free radical damage in our bodies because we don’t have enough anti oxidants to neutralize the free radicals created in our body.Read More
