Why do Colds Seemingly Never Go Away?

 

By Edison de Mello, MD, PhD

Once you get a cold it can feel impossible to get rid of it… and for good reason, too. After all, in today’s fast paced world, it’s rare that anyone fully slows down and gives themselves the time they need to heal. And for a cold — that’s somewhere between 3 days and 2 full weeks, depending on your symptoms.

 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.

One way ...

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 ...

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 ...
