is the #1 MOST POPULAR BLOG on Blog Catalog

one of the largest blog directories on the internet!

REVIEW by Daniel at Blog Catalog the premier blog directory on the internet:
“Dr. Nicole Sundene is the author of Kitchen Table Medicine. An easy to read, informative, and down to earth blog about nutrition, health and alternative medicine….It’s easy to see why BlogCatalog members have made this our Blog of the Week. Nicole has created a top notch blog and…read the rest of this review on Kitchen Table Medicine
REVIEW of Kitchen Table Medicine at “Blogging Without a Blog” by Barbara Swafford
“…tips on what foods to eat, how to reduce stress by knitting, how smiling can prevent heart disease, computer and desk ergonomics, help for seasonal depression , plus numerous other topics written by herself and/or a writer from her “featured writers” page…professionals also engaged in the world of health/fitness Although a website should never replace your family doctor (see her disclaimer), this site is filled with fantastic information on health and fitness… the rest of this article about Kitchen Table Medicine
REVIEW by Sean Rasmussen of Do You Digg It “…What’s great about Kitchen Table Medicine is that it is not another health blog that doesn’t really give advice. This blog (which of course offers its own healthy
dose of disclaimers and advisement for personal professional attention by qualified health professionals) details the foods, diets, practices, and products that you can use to live better.
It raises all the issues related to living better, including knowing what to use, how to use it and when, and what to change psychologically to incorporate real, lasting, healthy change; and it offers a platform where people can ask and learn of

qualified natural health professionals, and get real responses to questions (and participate in Dr. Nicole’s poll to tell her what you want her to write about)….
Kitchen Table Medicine is an easier way to learn about living better in sync with nature. It’s a way to become more familiar with natural living without being overwhelmed by all there is to learn.
Dr. Nicole and company present the information in small, understandable, digestible pieces, and cover all the bases for successful healthy living….Read the rest of this article about Kitchen Table Medicine
REVIEW by Melissa Ward author of “Phenomenal Entrepreneurs”
“…The posts are chuck full of tips that range from dealing with skin issues to why you should be eating breakfast (hanging my head). You will even find posts that ask What IS Beauty? and Are you suffering from a terminal case of the “I can’ts”?
I have never been a pill popper and am always looking for natural remedies for various maladies. I consider Dr. Nicole’s blog to be a very valuable resource. I can’t tell you how much time I have saved NOT researching something, as she already had covered the topic. The writing style is delightful, professional, personable and to the point.
Again, many sincere thanks for leaving an inspiring comment for me to read on a rainy day!

  8. Dr. Nicole,
    You keep on doing what you do – you are articulate and thoughtful and inciteful – you make me think about my choices every day!
