The New Non-Drug Guidelines for Low Back Pain

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

The American College of Physicians has updated their guidelines in treating lower back pain. For the ACP to release new guidelines, this means that new studies citing hours, weeks, months and even years of research have proven past techniques less effective than originally thought, bringing new treatment options to light and to the forefront of primary care. Unsurprisingly, the new guidelines strongly discourage the use of opioids for the treatment of lower back pain. Instead, they highly recommend seeking conservative non-drug treatment through lifestyle changes, chiropractic and overall wellness. There have […]

Running low on time in the mornings? I highly recommend turning to smoothies as your go-to breakfast. You can pack a wide variety of nutrients in any number of smoothie recipes. Really, the variations are endless. The Mocha Banana Smoothie is a soon-to-be favorite for you if you enjoy coffee drinks. It combines the thick, smooth and chocolatey taste of a shake with the energizing kick of a cup of coffee. In addition to packing great flavor, it has some serious nutrition benefits. Bananas are an excellent source of potassium […]

Do What You Love & Love What You Do

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate love in a variety of forms. It’s marketed as the day to cherish romantic love, but that’s not all you should appreciate on February 14th. Valentine’s Day is a great time to reflect on the role of love in your life, starting with yourself. How you treat yourself mentally and physically is the foundation for even beginning to find your ideal partner. This Valentine’s Day (and why not every day?), take time to reflect on your relationship with yourself. Much of what I […]

Life in Motion: The Importance of Mobility

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

With all this new snow, out comes the shovel and the added muscle soreness that comes with it. A typical (but dreaded) chore like shoveling snow is a normal, everyday reminder of your mobility and range of motion or lack thereof. For many of us, the words “mobility” and “range of motion” are associated with aging; we think of limitations in these areas as being exclusively assigned to older individuals, maybe after a surgery or two, or just in the combination of aging more and exercising less. The truth is that […]

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The holidays are over and the New Year is upon us. As December 31 inches closer, you may or may not be penciling a list of resolutions that you hope to accomplish in 2017. Resolutions are a hot topic this time of year. Everywhere we look, it seems someone is telling you to set a different goal for ourselves (lose more weight! cut out sugar and carbs! save money!). Craving self-improvement is not at all a bad thing–it’s always good–but the mass rush toward big, vague resolutions this time of year is […]

Gift Yourself this Christmas

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

It’s Christmastime–the season of giving. Though many of us are charitable all year round, we are extra generous this time of year. We reflect on what we are grateful for then show this gratitude in the form of gift-giving. We donate last year’s coats to charity, give friends thoughtful gifts and drop off a little extra money here and there to the Salvation Army outside our favorite stores. Giving becomes second-nature around Christmas–a wonderful thing–but sometimes we give too much of ourselves and lose sight of what is important. So this […]

Winterize your Lifestyle

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Whether you like it or not, the snow is coming–and soon. The clouds turn grey, our driving schedules change and temperatures drop to downright freezing. It’s normal to feel a little sluggish once the cold hits; it’s harder to motivate yourself to drive to the gym in the mornings or after work, you feel less ambitious about making healthy choices with the lack of fresh options and the lack of vitamin D can make you a little sad. There is an endless list of little inconveniences that come along with frigid […]

Have a Happy & Healthy Thanksgiving

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Many have spent the last several years assuming that it’s the tryptophan in Thanksgiving turkey that makes you feel sleepy. While tryptophan is indeed an amino acid that prompts the brain to produce more serotonin (a calming agent), there technically isn’t enough present in turkey to produce a sedative effect and tryptophan works best on an empty stomach, which typically isn’t the case on Thanksgiving day. So, what’s the real cause of your sluggish feeling on Thanksgiving? Overeating! The high carbohydrate consumption, alcohol intake and the sheer amount of calories (the average Thanksgiving meal is 3,000 calories) causes your […]
