EnJOY the Holidays!

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

It’s the Monday after Thanksgiving, we just weathered a snow storm, and it’s the second day of December. Most of us likely had somewhat of a stressful (even if it was the good kind!) weekend, and we are busy to plan for the next holiday (Christmas — only a few weeks away). For many individuals, the stress surrounding the holiday season and the start of winter only multiplies when they consider their own health goals or their weight gain / loss in general. It seems that everywhere we look there […]

Exercise Improves Memory

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

Exercise is great for us in a variety of ways. We reduce the odds of developing heart disease, reduce the chances of a stroke, help prevent depression, lower blood pressure, and even keep diabetes at bay. It also makes us feel and look better. With these impressive results, it’s no surprise exercise benefits another vital organ: the brain. Thanks to a study done at the University of British Columbia, “researchers found that regular aerobic exercise, the kind that gets your heart and your sweat glands pumping, appears to boost the […]

Lifting Weights for Beginners

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

Summer came and went, and maybe you never got around to completing your “beach body” workout goal in the three months of sun we get to revel in each June through August. Rather than shrugging it off and pulling on a comfortable sweater (as tempting as it may sound), bear with me: you can still jumpstart an exercise routine and set new goals for yourself. Every day is the perfect day to start over and begin a new routine. One of the most effective ways to build muscle, burn fat […]

Chiropractic for High Blood Pressure

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

In November 2017, the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology released new guidelines for high blood pressure (also known as hypertension). The definition of high blood pressure has been lowered to 130/80 from 140/90 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). This means that more women will meet the criteria for stage 1 hypertension. Before you panic, let’s determine what exactly this means. Having higher blood pressure can put you at greater risk of heart attack, stroke, kidney disease, eye disease and cognitive decline. The new guidelines indicate that […]

Fasting, Explained

By: | Tags: , , , , ,

When we hear the word “fasting,” many of us probably think of starvation or the old meditative trick of forgoing food in exchange for spiritual enlightenment. In reality, fasting is a science-backed diet method that is extremely effective in helping you lose weight. The International Society of Sports Nutrition conducted a massive 2017 study that showed intermittent fasting is just as effective as caloric restriction (i.e. monitoring your calories each day) when it comes to losing weight and improving your body composition. The study actually proved intermittent fasting can be […]

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 […]

Lose Weight & Recover Faster

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

Beginning your journey of weight loss seems simple enough in theory, but in practice it can be frustrating. The results often don’t come as quickly as you’d like nor as easily. What I’ve found with my patients and friends is that motivation is extremely important. The results from your hard work will eventually fuel your progress, but results do not come immediately. In order to get in the habit of a healthy lifestyle, you need to find motivation first.  Losing weight has a lot of benefits that can motivate you […]

Foods for a Slimmer You

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

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 […]

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 […]
