August 31, 2017
brain

Should we consider what our children eat as brain fuel for learning? Absolutely! Leading nutritional researchers are learning more every day about the power healthy foods have on growing bodies. A healthy diet and the right supplements can help to build a better brain and a stronger immune system. Frequent colds, anxiety, and low energy are becoming common symptoms in children.

How I Helped My Son to Be His Best Self

August 28, 2017
son

My son got new eye glasses this summer and ever since, he can’t wait to go back to school so that he can show them to his friends! I’m happy about his enthusiasm. Honestly, I’m relieved! You know, it’s awful to get a resistant, anxious or embarrassed child to go to school when they don’t want to. I have it easy actually. Some girls in my son’s class cry daily. I’ve read that anxiety is sending twice as many children…

Since expectations may influence behavior, I invite you to challenge those beliefs, and your health outcomes. Many older athletes, known as masters athletes, are showing us what’s possible. According to a 2002 study, maximum heart rate and VO2max (breathing capacity) do drop at an average…

Keep Calm and Call Your Mom

May 14, 2017
mom

Of all the Hallmark holidays, I think most would agree that Mother’s Day is one of the most deserving. Move over National Donut Day, I have more memories of mom making kick-ass pancakes with warm maple syrup, that both warm the tummy and heart. Think about it, when someone makes it on TV, who do they give a shout out to? “Hi mom!” When we are sick, the first person we want is mommy. And who’s the second most important…

Don’t let the holidays derail your health – 20 ways to have healthy holidays

December 16, 2016
Holidays

Let’s embrace the joys that can be a natural part of the holidays. After all, if eating’s the only excitement all season, of course we’ll justify a sugar rush! Asking you to “stand with your back to the buffet”, and “alternate wine and water”, is all well and good, but if you run around doing ‘everything’ and are ‘starving’ you may end up too tired to care anymore. Even if you vow to resist the loaf with creamy cheese dip…
