Food as Medicine, Healthy Recipes

Delicious Borscht and Spring Cleaning

Happy Spring! Whether it’s clutter, bad habits, or obligations that no longer serve us, it’s the perfect time to get rid of the old to make space for healthier choices. It’s also a perfect time to work on your immune system and get ahead of seasonal allergies. If you’d like help with this — or any other health concerns— we’re open and ready to serve! For the health and safety of all patients — and per city code—masks are still required in the clinic. Thank you for understanding!

For those interested, I’ll soon be guest-hosting several Twitter Spaces and podcasts, as well as presenting at a Gala event. On April 5th, I’ll guest host Rachel Thompson’s #SexAbuseChat on Twitter Spaces. I’ll discuss various integrative medicine treatments for victims of sexual abuse. Later this month, I’ll discuss the importance of doing what brings us pleasure even when— especially when— times are challenging on the Buried Pleasures Podcast on a date TBD. I’m honored to be a guest on Michelle Torez’s YouTube show about surviving tragedy. Michelle was a victim of horrendous, institutional abuse as a child and is now a a passionate mental health and abuse survivor advocate.

Lastly, I’m honored to present an award to Kim Cookson (founder and director of the Southern California Counseling Center’s Trauma and Resiliency Training Program) at SCCC’s annual Gala on Saturday, April 30th. As most of you know, SCCC was critical to my healing after my daughter died. I’ve done fundraising events in Alice’s memory for SCCC ever since, with hope that everyone can access the affordable, effective treatments that changed my life.

The Gala can be attended in-person or virtually. Tickets are available here if you are interested:
