Every day that passes, your body gets a day older, right? Maybe. This week, I want to help you look at aging from a different perspective – going to go all the way down to the cellular level.
Ultimately, “living right” comes down to taking an active role in managing your whole wellness, which has been the theme of my last few articles. If I have one core purpose as a healthcare professional, it’s to give you the keys to your own wellness and the knowledge to maintain it yourself for a lifetime.
Hurricane season is one of those things we talk about here in Southwest Florida. I’ll be the first to admit that, having lived here my whole life and having seen long periods without a major storm, it’s easy for me to get glib about it. But no matter how fortunate we have been here in […]
Last week, I started a journey with you back to the Fundamental. (I know, it’s kind of a silly play on words, and I was probably the only one that got it. We normally go back to “the fundamentals,” but the name of my practice is “Fundamental Health Solutions.” I’m a doctor, not a comedian.) […]
Now that we are past the holidays, I want to get back to our discussion about brain health. I was reminded recently of a patient I treated years ago who complained of brain fog. Let’s call her Connie. Connie, Interrupted Connie was in her 50s when she first came in. She was elegant, well-educated, and […]
Welcome to 2019! I hope this new year finds you blessed, healthy, optimistic and surrounded by people who love you. I want to get right into today’s topic: my 2019 Wellness Checkup Checklist. Time To Take Stock Of Life New Year’s Day is one of those great opportunities we have during the year to stop […]
I hope you’re having a great holiday season. We’re entering the final stretch now, moving from the gift-giving, party-throwing, sugary-food-eating season toward New Year’s Day and the last-year-regretting, new-life-planning, resolution-setting, fitness-desiring, top-of-the-year reset. It’s Resolution Season This is typically a time when people decide they want to make a clean start. They leave behind old […]
Protecting your brain sounds like something football players would be concerned with. Every few years, the NFL makes updates to the design of their helmets, based on the latest research, to reduce the risk of concussion or brain injury. It’s a good idea, but it doesn’t help the rest of us much. I don’t suggest […]
The holidays are funny sometimes. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, according to Andy Williams, and I have to say I agree…for the most part. But this is the time of year when the people I talk to give me “that smile” when they’re wishing me a merry Christmas. You know that smile…it’s […]
On last week’s Wellness Wednesday, as we were talking about the power of intermittent fasting, I mentioned that I would be leading into an in-depth study of the power of ketogenesis, which is a powerful, well-researched nutrition plan that is growing daily in popularity, thanks to some well-marketed blogs and videos. I am absolutely going […]
If you’re ever having difficulty sleeping, give me a call and I’ll give you some of my medical texts to read. In these sacred texts, you will learn the finer points of caring for interesting body parts, including the sternocleidomastoid, the superior mesenteric ganglion, and the vagus nerve. Are you still reading? Thank you for […]
If there’s one phrase that sends even the most dedicated bodybuilders away screaming, it’s “leg day.” Whether you’re doing crunches or squats or the wall sitting exercise, leg workouts are usually associated with pain. Not a week goes by that someone doesn’t post a funny meme on Facebook about the torture associated with leg day. […]
