Soy has been viewed with controversy in the US for years.  The truth is, scientific evidence has shown  soy to be beneficialand protective as a plant protein source for decades.  Asian countries that consume soy as a normal part of their diet, have less incidence of hormonal cancers (such as breast and prostate) than countries that don't. 

However, there is a caveat.  Organic soy, as a food, is metabolized differently than soy that is processed into protein powders or supplements.   Additionally, soy that is not organic may actually increase the risk of hormonal cancers.  

When I suggest for my patients to try organic tofu, as a form of plant protein, many say they don't know how to cook it so it tastes good. There are some simple ways to prepare tofu to fix that problem! Here, I offer you a basic recipe for how to make tofu that you can eat as a snack by itself, or add to stir-fries, soups or, salad topper.

Stress is on the rise in our world.  Acute stressors and  unexpected events set off our stress response.  When we feel a loss of control or are faced with the unknown, feel helpless, powerless or unsafe, our stress response is triggered.  If this state is prolonged, its effect on our bodies can put us at risk for many of the common diseases in our society.
In this Webinar, Dr. Kumar will present what happens in the body when the stress response is activated and she will be joined by her practitioners at The Ommani Center to offer tools and techniques to reduce and mitigate stress.
