I've started a home baking business to provide a gluten-free, grain-free, low sugar cookie that fits into virtually any diet. My mission is to educate the public on the power of food as either health promoting or depleting.

I am a certified dietician-nutritionist, who has been counseling individuals on sustainable weight management and disease prevention for 2 years. My mission is to empower individuals to obtain healthy food relationships and to clearly understand the concept of food as medicine. As a result of a sustained 28 pound weight loss, which began during grad school and from witnessing the yo-yo cycle of weight loss and regain while working at a popular weight loss clinic, I chose to create a functional nutrition practice where what, why and how we eat are all part of the conversations I have with my clients.

Michael J. Fox on Parkinson's and Staying Positive

By host - alice.scott
It’s perhaps a strange thing to suggest, but ever since Michael J. Fox went public with his diagnosis in 1998, his life has looked, from afar anyway, almost charmed. The foundation he started has raised a staggering $800 million to combat Parkinson’s disease. He’s written three best-selling memoirs and even continued to act, in substantive roles, on shows like “The Good Wife” and “Rescue Me.” His family life, with his wife of three decades, Tracy Pollan, is by all accounts a dream.

My mom battled Parkinson's from her 40s until her death in her 70s. It's progression was so disheartening... from a slight tremor to not being able to walk, from moments of frozen rigidity to hours of it, from having trouble feeding herself to having dysphagia. Thank you, Michael J Fox, for all the attention and research support your courageous battle has generated. ❤️

“Lucky Man” is truly one of the best autobiographies of a celebrity I’ve ever read (and I’ve read many!) He’s so very smart, funny, wise, honest, and a great writer! Take the time to read it. You won’t regret a single page.

Kudos to both Michael and his wife Tracey for dealing with this together. I remember watching them in Family Ties all those years ago falling in love on and offscreen. They were so young and they have been through so much. I’m inspired by their love and their ability to navigate these challenges while raising kids and keeping their sanity!
