Protect Your Joints From Arthritis By Doing This

Hey!  I hope you're having a great day! I've been doing some reading lately on the topic of arthritis and I came across an article put forth by The Arthritis Foundation that I wanted to tell you about. In my line of work, arthritis (specifically osteoarthritis) is a common problem virtually amongst everyone who I see in a typical week.  This joint condition affects 27 million Americans and the number just keeps rising. Osteoarthritis is the progressive deterioration of the cartilage on the end of one or more bones...

Studies Show That 48% of People Are Deficient In This

Hey!  I hope you're having a great day! Question- What do cramping, muscle tightness, fatigue, inflammation, poor sleep, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, weakness, memory problems and excessive stress- all common issues that many of us face- have in common? The answer is that a deficiency in an important mineral could be a primary contributor to these problems. "Magnesium is involved in over 300 biochemical reactions in your body. It affects everything from your heartbeat to your muscles to your hormones," says Dr. Danine Fruge, Associate Medical Director at the Pritikin Longevity Center...

This Picture May Frighten You

I'm resting my body today after a good game of basketball yesterday.  My team ended a 12 game winning streak for someone else's team, so I'm still reveling in the victory.  Since I took up the sport again I've had to fight my urge to play just because there is a game and instead give my joints sufficient rest time.  A few times I made the mistake of going again to soon and my body let me know that it was not quite ready.  It reminds of conversations...

The Secret To Long Term Results

Hey!  I hope you're having a great day!
Today is Mothers Day, and like many I will be spending time with my mom today and making my best attempt to make her feel special.  Thankfully I was blessed with a very good mom who did what she needed to do day after day to take care of her kids.  Thankfully I had a mom with a compelling reason "why." A compelling reason why is what will drive someone to do the necessary work day after day, week...

UCLA Study Participants Reversed Memory Loss By Doing This

  It's nice to be able to find humor in the all too common problem of memory loss, but for some it can be life altering.  Have you ever walked up to someone you knew and they had a hard time remembering who you were? They might be suffering from memory loss, or even worse, Alzheimer’s disease. It affects up to 5 million Americans and is the sixth leading cause of death in the US. Many patients who are diagnosed with disease feel there is no...

Anti-Inflammatory Drugs- Friend or Foe?

It's interesting to see the difference in people regarding this subject of soreness.  Some people have the idea in their head that ANY amount of soreness or pain has to be a bad thing and must be removed as quickly as possible and by any means necessary. On the other end of the spectrum, there are people that actually like the idea of being sore because it makes them feel like they really did something and because it tells them where their weaker areas are so they can...

I Shared This With A Few Doctors This Weekend

I'm actually sitting in the Houston Airport right now awaiting the last leg of my marathon day of flights (4 legs total and 14 hours of travel time). It was well worth it though.  I got to spend the weekend with a group of healthcare and medical professionals of all disciplines discussing the prevalence of "medical miracles" in modern practice. These are things that cannot be explained purely through medical science, even by the very doctors who witnessed them.  They talked about the commonalities between these and...

A Blood Test That We Should All Get Regularly But Don’t

I've been relaxing for a few hours watching the final holes of The Masters Tournament and I am amazed at how a 21 year old "kid" played so well.
It's funny sometimes watching these young guys and girls on TV and remembering what I was doing the year they were born.  It also makes me wish that I could go back to that time in my life and teach myself many of the things I know now, especially about taking care of my body.  What I...

This One Decision Could Make or Break Your Health

This morning has been exciting for me so far.  In addition to it being Easter Sunday, today was also the day of my television segment airing on SNN!  It turned out great and I've gotten great feedback. If you missed it I will have a video to share soon. Because this is Easter weekend I felt it would be fitting to write about a topic that is very near to my heart- making the decision to forgive. This weekend, people from all over the world will celebrate Gods act...

One Mans Week at the Gym

I hope your day is going well.  Usually in these posts I send out a helpful article of some sort but this amusing story caught my eye so I figured I'd break up the seriousness and share it with you.  It seems to embody many peoples fears (and some peoples actual experiences) of beginning an exercise program, especially with a trainer.  Have a good chuckle with it. Dear Diary: For my sixty-fifth birthday this year, my lovely wife purchased Read more
