In sad news for baseball fans and others in the Denver area, Colorado Rockies pitcher Chad Bettis recently began chemotherapy for testicular cancer after unsuccessful treatment last year.
I work in the admissions office of NTI, and people often ask me for holistic health and nutrition recommendations. It seems that we’re all seeking similar advice. We want to feel better and have more energy. The advice seems consistent, too: Eat well, get better sleep, exercise, and reduce stress. Sounds simple, right?
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.

Valentine's Day is quickly approaching! What better way to celebrate than with chocolate?
This year, why not skip store-bought, sugar-loaded chocolates and opt to make your own?
I created these Cacao Almond Butter Cups to satisfy the sweetest tooth. I’ve made them with and without honey. Sometimes I want the rich, bitter taste of chocolate without any sweetness, and sometimes I want a touch of added sweet. They’re great both ways. Make them how you want.
In A Nutritional Guide to Oils: Part 1, we discussed the challenges of choosing the best oils to cook with.
