Why I Believe in Prolotherapy

 

By Dr. Bren Boston

For someone suffering from joint pain, prolotherapy can be a safe and effective way to get them back to their usual activities. My opinion is that a targeted treatment at the source of the problem is a better option than a systemic treatment that circulates to the entire body. Prolotherapy causes proliferative cells to migrate to the weakened area, targeting the problem.

Chronic joint pain is an astronomically common condition, especially given our aging population. In fact, ...

The Joy of Routine

 

By Dr. Maggie Ney

I love the unstructured days of Summer – lazy mornings with my girls, no lunches to pack, no rushing to afternoon activities, and long warm nights. These days can be full of impromptu fun activities as well as chaos. But as Fall approaches, I actually look forward to the routine and predictability that inevitably settles in after kids go back to school.

We often hear how routine is so important for children. A child’s nervous system needs ...

Mommy-Me-Time

 

By Sari Eitches, MD

My first mother’s day all I wanted was 2 hours alone. I went to a yoga class and got my hair done. I even took a shower. Alone. With the door closed. It was exhilarating. Every Sunday since I do something similar- a work out and a treat- and return to my family more content, more present and more patient. It’s a far cry from the care-free “spontaneous” life I didn’t even know I ...

Q: In your medical opinion, what is the single healthiest long-term version of birth control? Is there such a thing?

Getting Adequate Zzz’s

 

By Alexandra Mark

When working with clients on their wellness goals, I always start with a comprehensive initial assessment, which includes more than a discussion about diet. While it’s important for me to learn about a client’s eating habits and dietary restrictions, achieving optimal wellness requires more than just a clean eating plan. I often find that clients struggle to meet their goals when under stress, which is commonly associated with lack of sleep.

Research shows that fewer than seven hours ...

7 Health and Fitness Benefits of Sleep

 

By Anne Price

Growing up, I thought my mom was “Wonderwoman” — a Greek version of Linda Carter who could also cook. She started her day at 6am and would go-go-go, non-stop, all day long.  “I only need five hours of sleep”, she would say, as she was sweeping the floor, readying us for school and boiling something for our dinner before she’d even had her own breakfast. Did you know that only 1% of the population can operate ...

Why Does Drinking Water Matter?

By Edison de Mello, MD, PhD

As the TED ED attached video explains, why should we drink more water?

  1. Dehydration killsWater is that important. Depending on our environment, we can live only a few ...
