Female Athletes

In the previous post, we discussed the fact that most female athletes aren’t properly monitored and assessed. Doctors tend to diagnose and treat health issues in the same way they treat males even though the female body is structured and functions very differently. Females are more susceptible to certain injuries, especially in the foot, ankle […]

Female Athletes

During the past 20-30 years, nothing in youth sports has changed more radically than the female athlete. To be clear, I could not be happier that girls are being given more opportunities to achieve their athletic potential. However, female physiology is very different from male physiology and should be treated as such. Most female athletes […]

During the Olympics, we saw world-class gymnasts hurl themselves into the air and land on their feet. If the average person tried to perform these moves, their joints and discs could literally crumble from the force. Why doesn’t that happen to gymnasts? Well, they obviously train for years to learn proper form. But they also […]

I’ll never understand why some workaholics brag about their long hours like it’s a badge of honor. They claim working 20-hour days with little or no sleep gives them an edge and helps them get ahead.

Every year, as people make resolutions to dive into the latest, greatest weight loss gimmick for the New Year, I remind them that this is a terrible idea. I guess you could call me the wet blanket of reality.

The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, a federal panel run by the Department of Health and Human Services and the United States Department of Agriculture, recently changed its 40-year guidelines related to the consumption of cholesterol. More specifically, the government is no longer warning people that consuming food with too much cholesterol – excess dietary cholesterol […]

When most people think of important vitamins, minerals and nutrients, some of the ones that come to mind most often are iron, calcium, fiber, vitamin C and vitamin D. However, magnesium plays an enormous role in our health. In fact, after oxygen, water and basic food, you could argue that magnesium is the most important […]

In Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 of our Healthy Mother, Healthy Child series, I focused on the nutritional component of pregnancy – essential nutrients, the importance of moderation, foods to avoid and the importance of breastfeeding. Now I want to shift to the physical component. Many pregnant women deal with musculoskeletal pain. Chiropractic care, […]

In Part 1 and Part 2 of this series, I discussed the essential nutrients during pregnancy and the recommended daily allowance of these nutrients, as well as the importance of water, fiber and pre-natal vitamins. With any nutritional program, but especially during pregnancy, moderation is critical. If a pregnant woman has a craving for a […]

In a previous post, I began a discussion about the keys to proper nutrition during pregnancy, including consuming the proper amounts of folic acid, iron and calcium. This is obviously important to the developing baby, but also to the mother, who needs to produce a supply of healthy breast milk for feeding the baby. Protein […]
