When I was in undergraduate school, I took a class called Nutrition Ecology. It talked about the ecosystem in which food is manufactured and how the environment moves various pesticides, pollutants, and toxins into our food supply.  Required reading for the course included “Silent Spring,” a book by Rachel Carson. Carson discussed how the use […]

When most people decide they want to lose weight and “get healthier,” they buy new running shoes. They either get a membership at the local gym or buy their own treadmill and start running. And running. And running. I know because I’ve treated their injuries.  To be clear, I’m not opposed to running for 20 […]

In a previous article, we discussed how facial acupuncture can help you age gracefully and comfortably without injections or surgery. Facial acupuncture works from the inside out to strengthen muscles and ligaments of the face and neck and improve skin health. As effective as facial acupuncture can be as a standalone treatment, there are several […]

Most people associate acupuncture with relief from different types of physical pain, from headaches to low back pain to menstrual cramps.

In the first part of my post about osteoporosis, I discussed what osteoporosis is, how it commonly leads to crippling spinal and hip fractures, and how doctors diagnose and identify the causes of osteoporosis. While many of these causes can be lifestyle-related – poor diet, lack of exercise, stress, tobacco and alcohol excess, and long-term […]

Seven years ago this month, I wrote a blog article titled “The Tragic Result of Sweeping Mental Health Under the Rug.” Robin Williams had just committed suicide. I pleaded with my readers to take mental health seriously. A couple weeks ago, I saw Simone Biles, one of the world’s greatest athletes who was sexually assaulted […]

Think about how your life has changed to reduce the risk of exposure to the coronavirus. Physical distancing. Frequent and thorough handwashing. Working from home. Virtual schooling. More online shopping. Curbside pickup of groceries. Whether you did any or all of these things for a period of time or continue doing them to this day, […]

Earlier this month, Reuters published a roundup of studies on COVID-19 that focused on risk factors, treatment options, and other issues. The top headline of the article focuses on how gut health affects COVID-19 severity and immune response. More specifically, a two-hospital study of 100 patients found that gut microbiome composition was significantly altered in […]

I seldom use the term “obesity” in conversations with patients. Although “clinical obesity,” “morbid obesity,” and “overweight” are diagnosis codes that doctors use in notes, society has become too frivolous with those terms. They can easily be misconstrued as demeaning or judgmental. I talk about body composition. Part of body composition is body fat, along […]

When I mention toxification, and the need for detoxification, most people think of obesity and lack of energy. They think of bad skin and bad breath. They focus on how harmful toxins affect physical and nutritional health. The impact of toxification on the brain, however, is often overlooked, especially for children during their developmental years. […]
