Female Athletes

During the past 20-30 years, nothing in youth sports has changed more radically than the female athlete.

However, female physiology is very different from male physiology and should be treated as such. Most female athletes […]

Big Soda Is at It Again. When Will We Take a Stronger Stand?

A reader of my blog sent me a screenshot of paid content from the American Beverage Association that appeared on a major news network’s website. When I say “paid content,” I’m referring to advertising that’s dressed up to look like the kinds of articles that visitors actually go to the website to read. There were […]

Intestinal Permeability

In Part 1 of our blog series on intestinal permeability, we explained what intestinal permeability really is and why the more popular term, leaky gut, doesn’t make sense.

Because there’s no license for nutrition in New Jersey, a lot of different people make nutritional recommendations, from those with degrees in nutrition to dietitians and gym owners. In many doctor’s offices, “nutrition” amounts to a brief patient history and stepping on a scale. If your weight is appropriate, you’re told everything is fine. If […]

Myofascial release therapy is often confused with massage therapy because both involve hands-on manipulation of the soft tissue. While massage focuses primarily on muscles, myofascial release focuses primarily on the fascia. Fascia is the connective tissue that runs from the top of the head to the bottom of the feet, almost like a three-dimensional spider […]

If there was ever a case for buying organic foods and supporting local farmers and farm markets, this is it. Each year, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) publishes its Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce. This report is based on the analysis of tests performed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture on more than 38,800 […]

Recent research conducted by a UCLA professor and reported by NPR found that brain cells actually slow down when you don’t get enough sleep. Lack of sleep causes the bursts of electrical activity in brain cells to become slower and weaker, which affects the ability of brain cells to communicate. This helps to explain the […]
