Omega-3 fats have reached an almost painfully trendy status over the last few years. Health food companies are marketing chia and hemp seeds as reliable sources of omega 3s, but there’s more to know about these essential fatty acids than what they’re telling us.
From time to time, NTI will feature one of our remarkable faculty, staff members, students, or graduates. Steve Shomo joined the community of NTI in September 2016 as an instructor of Anatomy and Physiology. Like many healers, Dr. Steve allowed personal experience to guide him down the path of the healing arts as an acupuncturist, wilderness first responder, Doctor of Oriental Medicine, and instructor. At NTI, we’re fortunate to have such a compassionate instructor with an equally rich and varied personal history as part of our team.

While searching for a healthier alternative to my favorite treat, I stumbled upon a recipe by one of my favorite bloggers, The Unconventional Baker, and decided to adapt it to create my perfect carrot cake.

While not sugar free, this version is definitely a step up nutritionally from conventional varieties out there.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Historically primarily a male affliction, the gender gap in heart disease has narrowed in a somewhat ironic turn of events for women who have sought equality with their male peers.
