Health Boosters- The Real Deal On Supplements for Kids

Written by Tana Amen on . Posted in Nutrition, Tana's Blog

Why? How much? Which ones?… are some of the frequently asked questions I get when it comes to kids and supplements.

Typically, we don’t think of kids needing supplements but what we don’t realize is that our bodies do not get everything they need from food alone.…

Written by Tana Amen on . Posted in Fitness, Nutrition, Tana's Blog

Many people think that to get rid of sugar cravings, reverse disease, having better brain health starts with a better diet. Almost. But it really starts with questions. The right kind of questions. Knowledge is having the right answers, but intelligence is asking the right questions.

How do I know if I’m gluten intolerant?

Can I overcome a family history of disease, or is it my fate?

How can I get rid of my sugar cravings, and feel fuller after

Eating Cheap Doesn’t Mean Eating Poorly

Written by Tana Amen on . Posted in Nutrition, Tana's Blog

You looked in the fruit and vegetable aisle. You saw how fresh and green the broccoli looks, so you decided to take a couple of stalks, but not before doing a double take on the price. You sighed, put the broccoli back, and then headed on over to the "dead aisles"; the Alzheimer’s and high blood pressure aisles, attractively lined with man-made, processed foods filled with sugar and salt to draw you in.

No, I wasn’t following you. I just …

How My Independent Kid Stays Healthy

Written by Tana Amen on . Posted in Nutrition, Tana's Blog

What’s one of the hardest jobs in the world?

Deep-sea fishing? Lumberjack? Police officer?

Candidates for this (arguably) hardest job in the world must be willing to work over 100 hours a week, have impeccable time management skills, be on call 24/7, have unlimited patience, and be cool, calm and collective under pressure.

It’s being a mom.

Take Supplements That Match Your Personal Health

Written by Tana Amen on . Posted in Nutrition, Tana's Blog

"Take two multivitamins, and call me in the morning."

Because doctors are paid big drug bucks by the pharmaceutical companies to promote and sell their drugs, you’d be hard-pressed to find a doctor who will ask you about your diet and if you are taking supplements.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not opposed to medication when it’s called for. I’m certainly not opposed to physicians. Heck, I’m married to one. I’m simply opposed to the indiscriminate use of medication at …
