Hot Pink Quinoa Salad

By Bren Boston, M.D.

I am always searching for ways to get my kids to eat more vegetables.  Beets are a good option because they are naturally sweet and they are an enticing magenta color.  Add to that the health benefits of beets:  they are rich in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and betaine, an antiinflammatory nutrient that helps protect cells from environmental stress.  And when I mention to my kids that beets are a source of sugar, they ...

Insomnia – Is your over-thinking and over doing getting the best of you?

By Edison de Mello, MD, PhD

The holidays have an amazing capacity to bring up EVERYTHING. Although we are not able to control “WHAT” comes up, we can learn how to better manage the “HOW” it comes up. Knowing how to first observe the many scripts our minds are working simultaneously is the first step to ‘‘reframing” our thoughts and is the foundation for healthier thinking.

As mothers prepare for delivery a lot of energy is focused on being ready for labor, from Lamaze to, prenatal yoga, self-hypnosis to doulas, hospital tours to birth plans. Often thinking about what comes after delivery seems overwhelming and clouded by the unknown. But once the delivery comes and goes the new mother arrives at a place that seems quite unmapped.

Pumping for Healthier Babies and the Working Mother

By Melissa Belli, MD

When asking mothers why they stop or cut down on breastfeeding, a significant proportion say returning to work was the deal breaker for them.

– Henry David Thoreau

Every day I have patients who come to me asking what they should take to help prevent memory loss or to treat depression or “brain fog” – a loss of ability to concentrate fully.

Edison de Mello, MD, PhD

The Answer: Your Health

When asked how Europeans handle GMO labeling, a European colleague of mine – not surprisingly – laughed as she wisely said, “You Americans can make such a big deal out of nothing.
