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.

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. Personally, I think that kind of workload is more likely to give you a heart attack or stroke. I […]

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. It’s a title I wear proudly because that annual reminder always stops a few people from doing […]

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.
