How to make your skin look younger without paying a cent

You may have seen my Face Yoga Video 6 weeks ago. In this video, I show you how to make small tweaks to your face to see noticeable changes in your skin in minutes. The more you practice this, the better it gets. I am talking about fascial maneuvers. Facia is that tough white tissue that you see on a chicken breast. Very thin, but very strong. Fascia is what gives humans shape. Without it, we would be a puddle of bones, skin, organs, fat, muscle and other tissues on the floor. It can get stuck and cause tight muscles, and make us look old, and cause pain. Fascia is the biggest sensory organ in our bodies. And most of us have never even heard of it! Watch how I lift my droopy eyelid in just minutes! Read more

How to unlock difficult weight loss by knowing the 6 human hungers

One of the reasons I am obsessed with knowing how our body works is that the most important currency for me, besides time, is energy. How, when and what we eat is a large determinant of our energy. And understanding why we want the foods we want is part of that knowledge. If you didn’t know there are 6 types of human hunger, you know it now. And I revealed the first two in my last blog. I’m sure you can guess some of them, but understanding how they work and putting it all together can be a game changer. Read more

How to optimize the most essential nutrient to life in 5 minutes a day

Have you ever thought about how long you can go without certain nutrients? For some it’s years, some months, some days, but this one it’s just minutes. Without it you die.

The number one way to take charge of your future health

If you’re human, and I know you are, we all veer from our ideal habits from time to time. And if you’re like most people, some of your habits are less than ideal most of the time. I always see a new year as a great time for a reset. A time to create a new lasting healthy habit that gradually pays you back with dividends. There is a kind of health care that when practiced, has an anchoring effect making it much more likely that your health will go exactly the way you intend. What is it? Read more

The one thing you need to address to achieve your best health this year

We all know about diet and exercise to improve your health. Usually when I see a new patient, they have tried these things and they aren’t working. People take supplements, and often don’t know if what they’re taking is working or not. Labs can be very helpful at identifying issues, but clues are often missed because most practitioners don’t know how to interpret labs outside of normal ranges. On the off chance that all of these things are appropriately addressed, we often see resolution. For a time. And then things can regress. What is the missing piece of the puzzle that helps keep your health at the level that you are actually seeking? Read more

This could not be more true today than it was 17 years ago. I wasn't a parent then. Now I have three kids. We typically host and aren’t traveling to Ohio for Thanksgiving anymore. The food is mostly the same, the crowd is different. But it’s still my favorite holiday. I wrote this article about a habit that still, if in place, will reduce your holiday weight gain or even prevent it. Guaranteed. This article was published in Seattle in 2006!   - I was even interviewed on NPR about it. I guess it resonated with more than just me! Read more
