LUSCIOUS FAT

by Peter Wright, NTP, CGP

Increasing the "healthy" fat in your diet may be the single most important thing you can do for your health.  For me, switching my diet from “low-fat” to “healthy” fat resulted in a weight loss of 50 pounds and a reduction in cholesterol levels.  What’s even better is years later I haven’t regained a pound.

WE MOVED !

by Peter Wright, NTP, CGP  & Shirley Wright, LMT, RMT

We're very happy to share the news we've moved to a new office location.  No one wants to move during the height of the busy Holiday season but we couldn't pass up this great opportunity to expand our services.

Our new office is located on the 1st floor in the UNION SQUARE MALL, Suite E-1 at 64-66 East Main St., Dover-Foxcroft, ME.


Count 'em, one - two - three therapy rooms.  We're excited to now have three therapy rooms, instead of just one at our old location.  This will make scheduling easier and allow us to see more clients. 



Our new location also has direct access to a public parking area.  There is a main entrance on East Main St. and a rear entrance directly from the public parking lot.



Please continue to contact us directly for appointments; Massage & Reiki with Shirley at 207-343-2157 and Nutritional Therapy with Peter at 207-343-2158.  We look forward to showing you our new facility!

GAPS - Gut and Psychology Syndrome


written by Peter Wright, NTP, CGP


GAPS is an acronym for Gut and Psychology Syndrome. The acronym was created by Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride, MD in 2004.  
 It defines a condition caused by an imbalance in the gut leading to both physical and mental symptoms.

Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride created the term after working with hundreds of children and adults with autism, ADHD/ADD, schizophrenia, dyslexia, depression, OCD, bi-polar and other neuro-psychological and psychiatric problems.  She discovered she could successfully treat these conditions through dietary changes and detailed her findings in her book "The GAPS Diet".

The same imbalance in the gut that leads to psychological issues can also cause physiological issues in the body.  GAPS can result in chronic physical conditions including arthritis, MS, lupus, Crohn's. IBS, fibromyalgia, and autoimmune disorders.

Stop Alzheimer’s Now!

by Peter Wright, NTP, CGP

260,000 Americans are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s each year.  1 in 8 of those are over 65.  While age is the biggest risk factor, age does not cause Alzheimer's.  The gradual degeneration of the brain starts well before old age.  While initially helping, drugs do not provide measurable improvement after 12 months.  

However, according to Bruce Fife, ND, author of the book  Stop Alzheimer’s Now!, coconut oil can stop the progression of Alzheimer's and in some cases even eliminate it completely.  His book explains in detail the use of coconut oil in the treatment of Alzheimer’s and other degenerative brain disorders.  In this post I will briefly summarize the main points of his book.  

It is important to note that Alzheimer's is a degenerative brain disease and is related to other neurodegenerative disorders including Dementia, Parkinson's, ALS, and MS.  Dr. Fife explains in the book how this treatment is equally effective against these disorders.
