Top Ten Steps to Total Health and Well-Being: an eBook

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?

Instructor Highlight: Dr. Steve Shomo

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.

My Perfect Carrot Cake

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. Classic carrot cake tends to be full of refined sugar and cream cheese, and while tasty, we all know these ingredients aren’t doing our bodies any favors.

Dude's Foods: Eating for Heart Health

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.

Soothing a Grumpy Gut - Digestive Distress Part 2


In the last couple years that I’ve spent healing my gut, the days I’ve felt most sick or uncomfortable, I’ve also usually felt quite anxious.

It’s hard to feel settled in your skin when your belly sounds like a bad hip-hop concert. Not only is the physical discomfort a burden to bear, but symptoms often include emotional unrest, too.

Cacao Almond Butter Cups

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.
