Welcome to the Practice of Béatrice Levinson, Traditional Naturopath and Certified GAPS Practitioner. The goal of this practice is to help you find the path to a better health!

You may suffer from digestive problems, multiple allergies, chemical sensitivities, chronic fatigue, depression or anxiety, you may have trouble maintaining your weight, have hormones imbalances, or even been diagnosed with diabetes and cardio-vascular diseases or auto-immune conditions.  No matter what your health issues may be, Naturopathy can help you improve your condition.

The standing goal of this practice is to find the root causes of your health problems, through detailed questions, a thorough discussion of your health history, if necessary through the use of blood tests, saliva tests and stools tests. Once the causes are identified, we can then address them one by one through an individualized program that I will personally tailor to your specific needs. This program involves specific nutritional advice, supplementation, and life style changes that are determined according to your case.  Twenty-six years in practice as a Traditional Naturopath has given me the experience and tools to lead my practice to consistently successful results.

Vegetarian Versus Non Vegetarian Diet

April 4, 2014 at 10:55 PM

Is eating meat healthy for us or not? 

A large survey was done in Austrian population in 2006-2007 by the Medical University of Graz, Austria.

The conclusion were:

“Our study has shown that Austrian adults who consume a vegetarian diet are less healthy in terms of cancer, allergies,  have more mental disorders (anxiety and depression),  have a lower quality of life, and also require more medical treatment.”

“Additionally, they have a poorer quality of life in terms of physical health, social relationships, and environmental factors.”

Although the study found vegetarians tend to have lower body mass indexes, be more physically active, drink less and smoke less frequently than meat eaters, they were 50 percent more likely to have a heart attack, 50 percent more likely to develop cancer, along with being twice as likely to develop allergies.

The survey was done on 1320 persons, with comparable ages and socio-economic status.

I personally believe that humans being omnivores (meaning they eat everything), we need to have animal proteins in our diet. There is no way around it. Even though the human body can adapt and survive on a vegetarian diet, it will however function better with animal proteins in order to attain better health.

Yours in health,

Alzheimer and Parkinson’s: ARE THEY PREVENTABLE?

April 1, 2014 at 11:29 PM

You are probably aware that our modern society is dealing with an unfortunate epidemic of mental / emotional diseases such as depression, anxiety, ADD, and autism. However, you may not be aware that we are also dealing with another epidemic of our elderly’s suffering from dementia. Currently, one out of three seniors dies of some sort of dementia!

So, one may ask the questions: Why are we facing such epidemics? Why are there so many brain diseases? What could be the causes of these diseases? And most importantly: Can we do something to prevent them?

Western medicine’s best answers to these diseases are medications. The only positive effect of these medications is “maybe” a slow down of their progressions… at best. But are these medications able to prevent Alzheimer and Parkinson? Certainly NOT!

The keys to prevent Alzheimer and Parkinson’s diseases are to understand their causes, and to recognize them early. Only then, are we able to intervene in order to prevent or slow down their progression. This is where Alternative Medicine can really make a difference!

The causes of Alzheimer and Parkinson are multi-factorial. But to name a few, I will mention here intestinal permeability, inflammation, and chemical exposures. I will develop and explain these concepts during my lecture, which will take place in my Monterey office on Tuesday April 8th 2014 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
