Intuitive Eating

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

I talk with patients on a daily basis about their relationships with food. Many of you probably read that sentence and found it comical, as if we really have a “relationship” with food. While it’s funny to think about, it actually could not be more true. Eating is a necessity, a basic need, so naturally we structure our days (if not hours, minutes) around the very act of eating. Whipping up a quick breakfast, meal prepping our lunches, planning our “30 minute or less” dinners and dining with friends are […]

The Unexpected Benefits of Human Touch

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

Thanks to the social media craze, one would think we are all closer than ever before. While that could certainly be true in some aspects, one important element is lacking when it comes to all relationships: human touch. What’s the big deal? Well, touch stimulates the vagus nerve which runs through our entire body, and its main purpose is to slow our nervous systems. According to Tiffany Field, Ph.D., the director of the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, when the vagus nerve is […]

The Practice of Self-Care

By: | Tags: , , , , , ,

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I want to talk about love. There are a few kinds of love, and on Valentine’s Day, it’s no secret that the most celebrated form of love is romantic. While romantic love certainly serves a great purpose in life, focusing on love in regards to yourself is perhaps the most important type of love when it comes to setting yourself up for success in all forms of the word. You’ve heard, many times, that it’s important to “love yourself.” A lot of us struggle […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
