Total body wellness effects more than your weight. Your dietary choices are also visible on your skin! The face you show the world should is representative of what you put in your body day in, day out. Sure, skincare is helpful in keeping your skin healthy & youthful, but the real secret to having clear, glowing skin is to treat it through nutrition. Your skin is your body’s largest organ.

You’ve probably heard the phrase “keep your head up” or “keep your chin up,” meaning to maintain high spirits in the face of something difficult and to persevere. Well, guess what? It’s backed by science: maintaining erect posture (sitting up or standing straight, chin raised, shoulders back) actually helps your body respond to stress and manage your moods.  Many studies have been performed based on the hypothesis that muscular states relate to emotions, but these studies have mostly focused on facial expressions (smiling does make you happier, by the way!).

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

It’s that time of year again: back to school. This means something different for all of my patients–some of you are teachers, others are parents of young children or are even helping move your son or daughter back to college after a long, hopefully relaxing summer. By now, the newness has worn off and routine has started to hopefully set in.
