If You Are Not Practicing Self-Love, What Are You Practicing?

If You Are Not Practicing Self-Love, What Are You Practicing?

For some, this may be a confusing question to ask, for many of us have never been taught to respond with self-love or even reflected much on it as adults.  Without the awareness of what self-love is, one unconsciously responds in ways one picked up as growing up – perhaps healthy, or perhaps sabotaging in ways that have significant consequences on one’s ability to receive love from others, on the quality of one’s relationship ...

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 ...

Go with your Gut: Movements to Optimize Digestion

by Olivia Barry, PT, C-IAYT, E-RYT500

Ideally, in just eight hours following a meal, we absorb the good nutrients and get rid of the remaining waste matter through the colon. Often these processes take much longer than eight hours, which runs our guts into trouble. Imagine perishable food that sits on the counter on a warm day. After eight hours, it’s rotten. Same in our warm bellies. In fact, when the plumbing gets clogged down yonder, a sort of ...

The Buzz about Intermittent Fasting

 

By Bren Boston, MD and Maggie Ney, ND

The truth is you probably already do some intermittent fasting (IF) and don’t even know it.  If you don’t snack after an early dinner and eat a late breakfast, you have done a form of IF.  Intermittent fasting is an eating pattern that sets aside a specific period of time during the day for eating while the rest of day is devoted to fasting.

There is not a one size fits all ...

DNA Analysis: A Great Tool to Optimize Your Health

 

By Jean-Marc Sobczyk, MD, ND

From DNA to Genetic Report 

You inherit your DNA from your parents, your parents inherited their DNA from their parents, and so on. 99.5% of your DNA is identical to every other human on the planet. Only the .5% left is what makes us unique individuals when compared to one another. These variations are called “mutations” or “SNiP” (single nucleotide polymorphism). Mutations can be linked to certain health conditions; certain ethnicities encounter more issues with their mutations.

This New Year, Allow Yourself to Be Human

 

By Alicia Maher, MD

On any given day, there are crowds of seemingly happy people making their way around the city. And yet so many in that crowd feel that their life doesn’t measure up to the others. You may see happy couples and wonder why you’re single. Or see families seemingly easily filled with children, while you’re struggling to conceive. You may stand to the edge of the party, feeling unable to make conversation, as you watch the effervescent ...

Our Family’s Favorite Apple Crisp Recipe

 

By Maggie Ney, ND

My family has been making this apple crisp recipe for over 10 years. The natural sweetness of the apples – with a touch of maple syrup and paired with a simple oat and nut topping – makes a perfectly satisfying dessert that is not too sweet and does not feel too heavy. It is not the raw, vegan, sugar-free kind of recipe that I usually like to share, but it’s one my whole family loves and if ...

How to avoid indigestion over the holidays – 5 easy tips

 

By Edison de Mello, MD PhD

It’s that time of year again – the holiday “eating season.” And while lots of people think the holidays are the most wonderful time of year, your gut may disagree. That’s because it’s this time of the year when people flood their system with rich, sugary foods – and that can lead to digestive issues, low immune function, and plenty of weight gain. In fact, the average American gains 5 pounds between Thanksgiving and ...
