Charlie Pulsipher

Charlie Pulsipher is the seventh child of nine children. He grew up watching his mother make large meals from scratch that leaned heavily on gardening to supplement a large family’s food needs. He saw how the food he ate powered his forays into soccer, running, and hiking throughout beautiful Southern Utah.

Charlie’s love of nature and biology led him to begin a college degree in biochemistry, but, after deciding math wasn’t his favorite subject and seeing how much he would be required to do, he made a radical shift to a degree in English focused around literature and creative writing.

Charlie worked at hotels while obtaining his degree and continued with hotel management for many years after, allowing the high stress nature of the job to interfere with his passion for exercise and healthy food. He gained fifty pounds and saw his cholesterol levels climb well beyond safe limits. In an act of desperation to save his life and sanity, Charlie quit his job at hotels early in 2011 to focus on his writing and his waning health.

Charlie published science-fiction novel with touches of fantasy, The Crystal Bridge, where his love for the outdoors, nature, and biology are evident. He lost thirty-five pounds and cut his cholesterol in half by focusing on a more plant-based diet and hiking the breathtaking cliffs of Zion. Charlie then took a copywriter position for a vegan protein and supplement company where he could pursue his passion for writing and health simultaneously.

Charlie is happily working on the last fifteen pounds with his wife, Jasmine, and his neurotic dog, Mahoney, at his side while also writing about plant-based foods, nutrition, and fitness. On the side he continues to chip away at three more science-fiction and fantasy novels.

      Might help some, Bonnie. Work with your doctor and give some natural options a try. I'd also suggest ginger and turmeric teas or capsules for anti-inflammatory aid and coconut oil topically for the same and moisturizing power. Good luck.

  • Can you tell me of something I can take for Arthritis I have it in both knees thanks

      Certainly, Valerie. I would also add coconut oil to the list. You can rub it directly into joints. It is anti-inflammatory and I've been using it on my legs after I run with success. I normally get shin splints too easily. I wish you luck!

  • Hi would Charlie pulsipher or anyone know any remedies for adult blocked tear ducts. I have it in both eyes and have been suffering with it for 3 years. I am on the waiting list for surgery but would love to know any natural ways the doctors haven't heard of to help clear it or make it better.
    Many thanks

      I am actually prone to eye infections and tend to get clogged meibomian glands in my eyelids which lead to hard lumps, called chalazion, that are very hard to get rid off. I did surgery once, but they came back. I turned to natural remedies after and have managed to get rid of the ones that came back and keep them at bay for about 10 years now. I can tell you what has worked well for me and I hope these apply to your blocked tear ducts. I use hot, wet compresses on my eyes as soon as one starts to appear, holding them there for about ten minutes. Then I massage them and apply the hot, wet compress again. I do that every day until it is resolved. I have also used coconut oil and tea tree oil around my eyes and on my eyelids, but you have to be careful not to get this mixture in your eye. I also use a homeopathic remedy for about a week or two while massaging and compressing, silicea. I take this sublingual remedy 5 to 10 times a day, throughout the day.

  • Hello,
    Can we promote you in our iPad magazine?
    I was reading an article on your site titled "50 of the best uses for coconut oil". My team and I saw what coconut oil is doing to help health enthusiast and we absolutely loved it. We want you to check out Paleo Diet Mom Magazine. We're doing through magazine's next issue. We're wondering if we could re-print that article "50 of the best uses for coconut oil" in our magazine.
