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 […]

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 […]

One of the most common symptoms I discuss on daily basis is lower back pain. That’s not a surprise, considering lower back pain is the most common musculoskeletal ailment in the United States. Chiropractic adjustments and therapeutic exercise can certainly help relieve and treat lower back pain, but what a lot of people don’t know is that core strength can actually help with pain management and can even assist in preventing lower back pain in the first place.  First, let’s discuss what your “core” actually is. Contrary to popular belief, […]

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. Our nutrition effects our bodies on a cellular level, and your skin woes are your body’s visible response to good […]

Clubs are forming of individuals who are guiding one another through the 30-day journey, your friends are sharing results on social media and maybe your interest is piqued. But really, what is it?

Life in Motion: The Importance of Mobility

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

With all this new snow, out comes the shovel and the added muscle soreness that comes with it. A typical (but dreaded) chore like shoveling snow is a normal, everyday reminder of your mobility and range of motion or lack thereof. For many of us, the words “mobility” and “range of motion” are associated with aging; we think of limitations in these areas as being exclusively assigned to older individuals, maybe after a surgery or two, or just in the combination of aging more and exercising less. The truth is that […]

Healthy Reminders for Back to School

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.

Happy Really Is Healthy

By: | Tags: , , , , , ,

No matter what you consider happiness to be—joy, lasting contentment, an optimistic outlook—there is now research proving that happiness does in fact improve health. A recent review of more than 200 studies has determined a connection between overall life satisfaction, happiness, and stress management with a lowered risk of heart disease. “Positive psychological well-being” is found to strongly protect your cardiovascular health. Laura Kubzansky, a professor of social and behavioral sciences at Harvard School of Public Health, has performed many of these studies herself (CNN). Kubzansky notes, “For physical health, […]
