I love natural remedies and I've been using them for as long as I can remember. When I was growing up, I learned about the benefits of natural remedies like chamomile tea for its calming effect, arnica for sprains and bruises and of course, chicken soup with garlic for colds and flu.  

Today, I write about natural remedies, alternative medicine and green living and specialize in ways to improve mental, physical and emotional health and well-being in my work as a journalist and author of non-fiction and fiction. This content reaches millions of readers worldwide. 

As a journalist, I've contributed to many publications including AARP, USA Today, Natural Health, Woman's Day, Remedy, Better Homes & Gardens, Prevention, Vegetarian Times, and Spirituality & Health. I've also created content for global brands such as The Meredith Corporation and Time Inc.

You can see my work here:  

I'm the author of non-fiction books for The Quarto Group, one of the world's largest illustrated book publishers based in London, England. My book with Jacob Teitelbaum, MD, Beat Sugar Addiction Now! is a Quarto best-seller and now in its 4th edition.

Two books in this series followed: the Beat Sugar Addiction Now! Cookbook and The Complete Guide to Beating Sugar Addiction. Other books for Quarto include The Country Almanac of Home Remedies and The Home Reference to Holistic Health and Healing. 

My natural remedies mystery series for Gallery features a health food store owner and holistic doctor and tips for healthy living.
