Would you like to live more vibrantly?
Like so many of you, I’m a juggler—a wife, mom, acupuncturist and energy healer, herbalist, author, teacher, and the host of CBS Radio’s “Grow. Cook. Heal.” With so many balls in the air, I often need to just get away, and this site is my respite. I consider it a home away from home, and I hope it will soon feel the same to you.
Here I’ll share the best of what I know, and continue to learn, about natural healing and vibrant living. We’ll talk about everything from how to grow and cook from a flourishing garden to how nature’s rhythms can nourish the mind, body, and spirit. We’ll explore what matters to a meaningful life, like awakening your intuition, letting go of perfectionism, opening your heart, and cultivating compassion. You’ll learn how to restore and regulate what Chinese medicine refers to as “QI”, the life-force energy that belongs to every one of us and to the universe, as well. It’s QI that allows our bodies and souls to thrive. I use various techniques to affect QI in my practice and will pass many of these on to you.
As the author of best-selling books Making Babies and Sex Again, I will continue to shed insight on what makes your body function at its best and most beautiful. This includes plenty of feel-good tips on my CBS podcast and radio show “Grow. Cook. Heal.” which I record year-round. On the show I ask people to share their healthy recipes and cook with me, I explore where our food comes from and I pick the brains of wellness experts to bring you the best advice.
But don’t let me do all the talking! Please be sure to reach out, whether it’s to become a patient at The YinOva Center, study Chinese medicine together, or share a family recipe or story that’s too good to keep to yourself. In other words, this site is where I hope you will come for information, a sense of connection, and a breath of fresh air. We’ll explore what it means to feel good and thrive in every corner of your life.
Yours in good health,

THE YINOVA CENTER
I've been practicing Chinese medicine at YinOva since 1999. Today it's a thriving clinic with a large team offering acupuncture, herbs, naturopathy, massage, psychotherapy and nutritional advice.
GROW COOK HEAL
This is my CBS radio show and podcast where I share scrumptious recipes and chat with everyone from doctors to dairy farmers about being healthy, living abundantly and eating locally.
I wrote this book with a doctor to help couples conceive as naturally as possible. In it you’ll find out how to create your own specially tailored 3-month program based on your fertility type.
Do you want to want sex again? I based this book on some ancient Taoist texts brought right up to date for modern couples. In it you'll find a 6-week program to enhance your pleasure and recharge your libido.
I like to talk about natural health, alternative medicine and the ways we can heal ourselves. Watch me on the Dr Oz Show, Fox News, Good Morning America, the Early Show, Ask Dr Nandi and The Talk.
