I often ask my patients if this speck could be making them tired. Yet when it creeps up slowly on me, it always takes me a while to realize there is a real reason for my fatigue. And it could be the reason for yours too. The good thing is that once you know it’s there, you can do something about it. What is it?
Did you know that you have about 95% control over your health outcomes? This means that
whether you live a long healthy life OR NOT, is almost 100% in your hands. So when does it
matter that you take control of your health to create the healthspan (how long you’re healthy
while you’re alive) and lifespan that you desire?
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. So for your
entire life, you are getting enough, but are you getting the optimal amount? And what if you
infuse your cells with this nutrient intentionally? How will it affect your health? What is it?
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?
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?
It seems that getting sick is easier than it used to be before the pandemic. There are a
multitude of reasons for this, but instead of seeing it as part of life, you can arm yourself
with some habits and a few supplements to boost your immune system and feel great all
winter long. Here are the simple rules I follow - and they work every time.
I was at a BBQ yesterday and it got me thinking. I was having a conversation with someone about a health and wellness retreat in Mexico. She was telling me about the meals that they served. My questioning was geared towards where I would get my protein. The reason for this? My goal every day is to keep my energy high and even. In order to do this I need to focus on
If you were asked to make a prediction about the age of someone from behind or from the side, you’d likely be basing your guess on posture. How straight up or how hunched over they stood when they walked. Did they pick their feet up off the floor gingerly, or were they shuffling? Were they limping or walking with ease? If you were to watch my 74 year old yoga teacher walk from behind, you’d think he was in his thirties. Why? Because he is very limber. Besides being thin and having an obviously muscular frame, his posture is straight, he is light on his feet and has a quickness in his step that is clear he doesn’t have any pain. How is this man different from most? And how can you feel more like him? My new obsession is …
I work with people who want to lose weight - a lot. I always stress that getting healthy is number one, and that the weight will follow. It’s difficult when you are losing weight not to obsess about the number you see on the scale. We can’t live and die by the scale - and here’s why.
