 By Bren Boston MD

In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8,

I would like to impart some tips on how women can support their health.  Women often wear many hats including taking care of the health of everyone who lives under their roof.  In this feat of daily multitasking, sometimes women prioritize their loved ones’ health over their own.  On this day, let us remind women that they deserve to dedicate time and effort to their own health.

Love Your Gut

 

By Bren Boston, MD

The human body is a marvelous contraption, but it certainly is not a modern one.  It developed ages ago before there were twinkies and McDonalds.  The human gut is the passageway for us to give our cells the nutrients they require to survive, and if we are mindful, to thrive.  This passageway was not meant to endure a constant flow of carbonated, highly sweetened, artificially colored phosphoric acid, otherwise known as cola.

Our gut is more than ...

Maggie Ney, ND

It’s time to pack up school lunches again.  I do not hear many parents talking about the joy of packing lunches in the morning – the mornings are crazy and lunch packing is one of the first tasks that need to get checked off of our morning to do list.
