Try This Simple Rule For Better Sleep

2020-10-13T16:09:46-04:00

Perhaps the #2 complaint I hear – from new patients anyway – is “I don’t have enough energy”. (COVID work-from-home scenarios have increased spine & body pain complaints up to #1) Well, it might not surprise you to know that the foundation for energy is none other than consistently getting a better quality of sleep. And while some people claim they’re good with six hours or so, research would suggest otherwise. According to most studies on cognition, 7-8 hours is mandatory. Researchers have also found that the effect of not enough sleep builds up! This is true even if subjects don’t [...]

The “Unseen” Perils Of Travel

2020-03-03T14:03:15-05:00

From the category of health risks you might not have considered… I enjoyed a lovely vacation with the family in Mexico last week.  Lots of sunny fun.  Here are the cute pics I wasn’t able to load for you last week with the subpar resort Wi-Fi: Here’s why this is important for you: While the bed in the hotel was decent, I did “pay the price” of the temporary sleeping arrangements each morning with daily albeit mild stiffness. And I’m generally healthy; for anyone with pre-existing symptoms, or travelers who are a bit older – even if otherwise in good shape [...]

Why Your Pillows Might Be Killing Your Neck

2019-08-28T12:45:58-04:00

It’s official. Baby Beverly joined our clan on Saturday evening.  Mom was a champ, and powered through to a healthy home arrival just 4 hours later (the beauty of using a midwife is that they come check on you the next day in the comfort of your home). Hayden’s “adapting” – he’ll be a great big brother when he comes to term with sharing his parents.  It’s been a busy few days for all of us… So I’m gonna keep this short and sweet. (She’s napping as I write this.  I probably should be too.) Anyway, since I’ve been fantasizing about [...]

And it doesn’t have to be that hard. Here are 5 simple rules for 100-years of healthy life: Eat well. Kick the SAD (Standard American Diet) out of [...]
