Age with Grace: Stay Happy & Healthy

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

As you may have noticed, our culture collectively dreads getting older. Advertisements promote youth, anti-aging and enjoying life while you’re young. While youth is great, it doesn’t last forever. To age gracefully both physically and mentally, you must adopt health awareness and a positive mindset. A recent study published in the American Journal for Geriatric Psychiatry suggests that overall contentment with yourself and your position in life dramatically increases your quality of life as you age. The idea of contentment changes from person to person, so the ways to find this contentment also vary. One […]

It’s true: abs really are made in the kitchen. Exercise all you want, but if you’re not fueling your body with proper nutrition, chances are you’ll have a difficult time finally slimming your stomach. I meet with hundreds of people per week and they all have one thing in common: they desire overall wellness and health. Everyone wants to look and feel great, but the best way to get there isn’t always clear. I guide my patients through exercise routines, nutrition logs and regular adjustments, but sometimes an even more […]

Yoga Mindset for Optimal Health

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

It is widely accepted that a regular yoga practice has a multitude of health benefits, from helping soothe physical discomfort to alleviating emotional distress. I often praise and suggest the physical practice of yoga for my patients for these very reasons. What you may not realize, however, is that the practice of yoga extends far beyond the studio and off of the mat. Yoga, when applied to your well being as a whole, can revolutionize the way you view the world, yourself and your health goals. Of course, I recommend […]

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 […]

Smart Sun: How to Use SPF

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

With summer in full swing, you’ve probably suffered through a couple sunburns by now. Not only is damage from the sun quite painful, but it’s dangerous. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the U.S. and 90% of skin damage (including premature aging) is caused by sun exposure. Good news, though: you can prevent skin damage and lower your risk of skin cancer by correctly using sunscreen. Many of us think we are using sunscreen correctly, but there are a lot of misunderstandings that lead to sun damage and […]

Vitamin D: Benefits & Tips

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

Everyone who lives in Wisconsin has participated in the running joke of our long winters wreaking havoc on our collective spirit. Our winters are harsh and the gray, sunless days stretch on for months. Lucky for us, summer is at its peak, which means the hardships of winter are far off (for now). All humor aside, the thought that our moods are affected by the seasons is not far from fact. Vitamin D synthesis is triggered by ultraviolet B rays, or sunlight. According to a psychiatric study, vitamin D deficiency in […]

Featured Smoothie: Banana Berry

By: | Tags: , , , ,

A healthy lifestyle starts first-thing in the morning. Breakfast is the perfect time to incorporate as many vitamins and minerals as possible in order to jumpstart your day. If you skip breakfast, you’ll be more susceptible to the temptation of fast food or equally unhealthy choices come lunchtime. Giving your body plenty of fiber, vitamins, and protein before you leave your house in the morning is a sure way to offset cravings later in the day. Time is understandably an issue in the morning. Your routine is already packed with […]

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

Sleep continues to be a hot topic in the health world, and for good reason. Many individuals suffer from sleep deprivation, even when they lie down and fall asleep for the alotted 7-8 hours. Researchers work around the clock to address sleep problems because sleep is linked so strongly to quality of life. Thanks to data released by the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, we now know that overweight individuals spend a higher percentage of sleep time in the REM (rapid eye movement) stage of sleep as compared to […]

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 […]
