Diabetes, Weight Gain and Metabolic Imbalances in Menopause

 

Maggie Ney, ND

Is it just a coincidence that a woman is more likely to experience higher blood sugar levels, higher insulin levels, and weight gain during Menopause? No, there are real, and significant, metabolic changes that occur in a woman’s body after menopause that are often ignored in the medical community.

Natural Strategies for Blood Sugar Control

 

By Bren Boston, MD

No one was more surprised than me when I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes during my first pregnancy.

The diagnosis was a blessing in disguise because it led me to meet with a diabetic nutritionist to learn about how to keep a food log, introduced me to the glycemic index of foods, how to eat ...

‘Tapping’ to Reduce Stress

 

By Kevin Kunkel

Being diagnosed with a serious disease or condition is life changing.  It makes you stop in your tracks and begin to look at life differently.  It can bring up a long list of fears and worries that are varied and strong enough to bring anyone to his/her knees. Breast cancer, for example, may afflict one with fears and worries such as:  fear of dying; fear of the implications to one’s life, to one’s family, one’s partner, the ...

Reducing Your Risk for Breast Cancer

 

By: Bren Boston, M.D.

1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, which is a scary statistic. Although the two most common risk factors for breast cancer (being a woman and getting older) are things you cannot change, there are some lifestyle choices you can make to at least reduce your risk.

  • Maintain a healthy weight, as gaining weight in adulthood increases the risk of breast cancer.
  • Exercise regularly to lower your risk of breast cancer by ...

Stress of Remembering

 

Alicia Maher, MD

Stress. It’s something we’ve all heard plenty about. But today I want to talk about a particular type of stress, the stress of remembering. This is particularly a struggle for those with ADHD, but can be an issue for others as well.

This can be remembering what to pack for a trip or bring to work or to surf. Without a system for remembering, those who struggle to remember can live life constantly feeling like they are forgetting ...

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. And I get it – I was thrilled when I did not have to pack lunches during summer. But with some planning, packing lunches can actually be ...

Putting Wellness on Your Schedule

 

Sari Eitches, MD

Everything I know about keeping a schedule, I learned from my 2 year old. Toddlers thrive on predictability and consistency when it comes to sleeping, eating, and movement. We adults are not so different. Studies have shown that keeping a consistent schedule has been particularly helpful in the treatment of conditions as varied as insomnia, migraine headache, chronic fatigue, obesity and depression.
