Which Supplements are Right for You?

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

Our diets aren’t perfect. We can do our best to eat whole foods, plenty of fruits and vegetables and natural sources of protein, but the truth is that our bodies are likely still lacking in nutrients. Vitamins and minerals improve cellular function. What does that mean? It’s not as complex as you think: when our cells are not functioning at optimal levels, we can feel fatigued, have poor memory, and become stressed or anxious. In addition to needing plenty of vitamins and minerals, our bodies also crave probiotics, omega-3 fatty […]

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 […]

Fighting Age-Related Weight Gain

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

Aging is inevitable, and so are some of the changes that come with it. Though you may still feel like you’re as mentally sharp as you were in your 20s and twice as wise, chances are you are noticing many of the physical changes that are difficult to counteract as we age. You probably grew up hearing your parents complain about pesky weight gain or loss of energy through the years and you may be slightly disappointed to find that you are now facing the same symptoms. But why? What happens […]

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 […]

Compound Exercises: Save Time, Gain Strength

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

Here’s the number one excuse I hear from individuals regarding reasons for not exercising: time. You may think you don’t have a lot (or nearly enough) of it, but we all have the same 24 hours in a day. Professional athletes, successful business executives, stay-at-home parents and students all have a crazy number of tasks to complete in a day, and those who excel at what they do certainly know how to make good use of the time they’re given. This same theory applies to individuals who make time to […]

Travel Right: Stay Healthy on Vacation

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

Traveling is wonderful. You get to explore new places, take in beautiful sights, get to know your travel companions more, and hopefully return home feeling refreshed and liberated. The only downside of traveling is the simple fact that you typically have to abandon your routine or adapt it to your new surroundings. Days spent on long road trips or back-to-back flights are not ideal for your physical or mental health. Lack of proper nutrition or hydration depletes your body’s defense systems, making you more susceptible to illness, which is puts […]

Gradual is Good: A Smart Start to Exercise

By: | Tags: , , , , ,

The start of summer typically signals the start of a new workout plan. While it is tempting to throw yourself headfirst into an intense, all-out sweat session to undo the sluggishness of winter, you may want to think twice about your level of exertion. The “no pain, no gain” slogan may actually bring more harm than good. A study by the University of British Columbia found that high-intensity, high-impact exercises could actually cause damage to the non-athlete performing them. The participants of the study performed a popular “sprint” exercise that at […]

Why Diets Fail

By: | Tags: , , , , , ,

I read a statistic recently that took me by surprise: 95% of diets fail and dieters will regain their lost weight in 1-5 years. It is not new knowledge to me that a lot of diets fail, but a 95% failure rate is staggeringly high. Why is this rate so high, and what can we do about it? If your first step in beginning a new diet begins with a commercial weight-loss program, weight-loss drug, or even bariatric surgery, you are definitely not alone. The weight-loss industry earns billions of […]
