Whether toxic chemical exposure is a common thread, I don’t know. But I wouldn’t be a bit surprised.

On this page, you’ll find local expert help for the following.

  • Detoxing your diet.
  • Rebalancing your hormones.
  • Restoring your energy.
  • Minimizing your symptoms.


Naturopathic Medicine

Dr. Amy Day, Naturopathic Doctor

Location: Berkeley, CA

Health areas: Diet, hormones, energy, allergies, asthma, and more.

My personal testimonial: Two of my customers recommended Amy. So I attended several of Amy’s free tele-classes about women’s hormones and energy. Especially helpful were Amy’s expert tips on diet, exercise and sleep, and how we manage our stress. Thanks to Amy’s expertise, along with her warm and supportive teaching style, I’m now more committed to sustaining my health. And at 60ish, thriving! And in early 2015, I joined Amy’s Women’s Wellness Wednesdays as a speaker and participant. And hope to work with Amy again in the future.


Functional Medicine

Location: Berkeley, CA

Health Areas: Functional Medicine, diet, women’s hormones, and more. Functional Medicine (FM) is a newish area of health care. In contrast to conventional western medicine, which is mainly about disease care, FM seeks to remove the root causes of diseases.

Check out Dr. Sara’s Hormone Reset Detox. Here you’ll also find books and programs to help you lose weight, restore your energy, and more. And on Facebook, I love her food infographics and well-attended discussions.  I learned about Dr. Sara after reading her husband David’s book, Explosion Green, about founding the U.S. Green Building Council.



Cindy Icke, Acupuncturist and Homeopathic Practitioner

Location: San Francisco, CA

Health areas: Diet, allergies, asthma, chronic pain, and more. Also Founder of Quan Yin Acupuncture and Herb Center of SF, where she was Co-Director for two years.

Testimonial: Feldenkrais Practitioner Kathy Flock, a former customer of mine, has been Dr. Cindy’s patient for at least ten years I worked with her. throughout that time, I was thrilled to see Kathy become free of her asthma symptoms, without medications. Acupuncture treatments from Cindy helped in a major way. In contrast, another customer with asthma, relying on western medicine, still relies on her asthma medications.

My personal testimonial: I attended one of Kathy’s excellent presentations, where I learned about Ayurveda’s approaches to detoxing. Included are diet, herbs, teas, oil massage, oil pulling, and more. Also helpful are ways to shift our diet throughout the shift in seasons. Check out Kathy’s educational blog and Facebook page!
