Our Blogs

We have two blogs, one discussing General Health and Nutrition & the other discussing Mental Health and Nutrition

General Health matters are discussed in our BodyMindLink blog series.

BodyMindLink

The BodyMindLink series by Dr Ray Pataracchia ND provides insight on Nutritional and Naturopathic approaches that matter most and have the potential to benefit both your physical and mental health.  In this series we look at the treatment approaches and body-mind-links of aging, tiredness, mental performance, work performance, digestive problems, food intolerances, stress, cardiovascular health, insomnia, weight problems, and chronic disease.

Winter 2014-2015 blog themes rotated between the topics of longevity, immunity, and weight problems.  Spring 2015 blog themes rotate between the topics of Detoxification, Cholesterol Imbalance, and General Physical Health Syndromes.

Optimal Mental Health matters are discussed in our MindCheck blog series.
