This time of the year is always special with all the Holidays. It brings on the full spectrum of emotions that we can experience – from joy to sadness. Joy to be with our loved ones and friends, while at the same time some sadness for those who are no longer with us to celebrate the Holidays.

At Thanksgiving we reflect on what we are thankful for in our lives. For those celebrating Hanukkah we rejoice in the miracle of the oil burning for eight days and nights and the freedom for the Jewish people. Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus. And then we roll into the New Year, making our life changing resolutions.

I know many of you enjoy my monthly newsletter and I often tell people it is one of my biggest challenges each month. As the self-imposed deadline approaches I’m never quite sure of what to write about and then something happens and it all flows from there.

This year it was the receipt of one of the nicest “thank you”/testimonial that I have received during all my years of practice. What made it special was it was not from what I would consider a client, but rather from someone who attended a single workshop last year. Meet Paula Goetz. She writes about what happened to her in the last year since the workshop. To read the letter you can click here or below.

I submit this letter not to boast, but in all humbleness. At the end of the year like everyone else I will be looking at the past year and thinking about the next year. This letter addresses the very essence of why I do what I do – why I left the corporate world for nutrition consulting. The truth is this job is not easy. It is very challenging to get people to change their long standing eating habits even when they know it is not good for them. Not everyone is willing to make the commitment needed. It brings to me great joy knowing I can make a difference in someone’s life.

I am thankful for the opportunity to educate others on how to live a healthier life and enjoy the miracle of life and the body’s ability to heal itself.

The Stuff Really Works

Sometimes I use a different word than “stuff” but the message is the same. Eating healthy really works to bring us back to our natural state of health. The power of Paula’s experience is that she did it with just food. Yes, I am still a believer in the supplements, but as I say to all my clients, “I can give you all the supplements in the world, but you still need to eat healthier.” Paula’s experience proves the point.

Here’s what she had to say, “Dear Dr. Rosen, I’ve been wanting to write you for some time now. I want to share my health changes since attending your “Calories Are Bull$@%*” workshop at Field of Yoga on December 1, 2012. Since it’s the one year anniversary of my healthy eating journey, I thought I should just get this letter done. To read the full letter, click here

Speaking of New Year’s Resolutions

As the New Year approaches I can think of no better way to clean up one’s act than the Standard Process Purification Program. Many of you are familiar with the 21 day program, but now there are two new 10 day programs – Blood Sugar Control and Female Vitality. While I remain a big believer in the full 21 day cleanse, these shorter programs may be just the right solution for many of you. The 10 day programs are still a significant commitment, but a much more manageable one.

Weston A Price Foundation Local Chapter Meeting

We are planning our second introductory Weston A Price chapter meeting. It will be Tuesday, December 3 at the Logemann Center (6100 W. Mequon Road) in Mequon at 7:00 PM.

This meeting will serve as an introduction to Dr. Price and his teachings. For those of you who attended our first meeting we will go into more depth on his teachings. For those of you who weren’t able to attend our previous meeting this will still be an introduction to his teachings and what our chapter is all about.

We had a great turnout at our last meeting and unfortunately we had to turn people away. Our new meeting is in a bigger location, so I hope that is not an issue! This will be a great place to connect with other like minded people who care about their families’ health, gather information about diet and nutrition, find resources and learn how to prepare these foods for you and your family.

Space is limited. Please PSVP to
