I love traditional fats. There is nothing worse to me than seeing a big bottle of canola, corn, sunflower or “vegetable” oil in anybody’s kitchen. I’d rather them eat a vat of grains or bushel of nuts. I once Facebook stalked a dietician here in Lebanon because she went on a TV show with a well-known chef and took him on a shopping trip to the supermarket. She made sure she told him and the rest of the viewers that butter and “samne” (ghee) were terrible for you and for your heart you needed “light” oil like canola. I suppose it isn’t her fault. […]
You all know by now how much I love talking about the powerful effects too much estrogen has on the body. Estrogen dominance, for women, causes so many symptoms including PMS symptoms, anxiety, depression, weight gain, heavy bleeding and fibroids, and really rough peri and menopause phases. Indeed you need estrogen. In the first half of the cycle, that is what is helping all those luscious eggs that could, one day, become beautiful babies. […]
I remember taking Nyquil a child. Oh how I loathed the shots of mysterious green liquid and hated, even more, the headaches that ensued the next day. Years later, still reaching for Nyquil for every fall and summer cold, still suffering from “Nyquil Hangovers” I had the worst “out of body” experience of my life. Seriously, I didn’t know if I was tired or extremely wired. I couldn’t sleep nor could I stay awake and the symptoms stayed around for about 3 days. […]
I never thought I would be one of those writers that did long “series” but let’s face it; liver detoxification is a seriously complex issue. I started to write all the explanations of what the various conjugation pathways did yesterday and it would have been a novel by the time I was done so I thought I would break it down into digestible bites instead. Nice of me, no? […]

I came to Jacqueline with women’s issues galore and about 20 lbs. heavier. I had tried every kind of diet I could get my hands on and was giving up on ever being “me” again. I learned to love real food and my body. I lost 25 lbs. in 3 months, my skin is clear, and I learned to look at life in a whole new way!

I thought my life was over when, two years ago, at 34, I was diagnosed with the big BC! Jacqueline was the voice that guided me out of a dark tunnel. She helped me with a workable eating plan (even through chemo when I didn’t want to eat!), a gentle exercise plan, and worked me with to overhaul my entire life and thought pattern. By the time my hair grew back I had started on a whole new path and now run a successful business and am healthier than I have ever been. I owe a lot to her.
Jenna B. Austin, TX
I learned to stop listening to what the media said I should be eating and embraced my culture once again! I couldn’t believe all the things I learned from one class. She taught me so much and knew more of being Indian and my culture than I did! I threw out my pharmacy hair products, my cooking oil, and so much more and went back to my roots! Thank you so much for the gift you have given me. Namaste.
