Eat This: Preventing and managing diabetes

Possibly not as scary as the C word, but hearing a diagnosis of the big D or diabetes or even pre-diabetes from your doctor can send patients into a tailspin. Diabetes can be quite misunderstood, especially because there are two types – type 1 which typically happens in younger years, and type 2, which was once called late-onset diabetes, but they had to ditch that because kids now have type 2 diabetes. One of our […]

Eat This: Pain

OWWWW, OUCH, Ahhhhh, usually means you’re in pain – the look on your face says it all and the sound that comes from within is indicative of the depth of pain. All in all, pain is truly no fun. Getting out of bed some mornings can really be a challenge from deep tissue pain, joint pain, headaches, or bruise-like pain. Then there’s the deeper pain, like chest pain that has everyone on high alert diving […]

Eat This: Are you sitting down?

Are you sitting down? I’m not asking because I have bad news to share, but that the position that you’re in right now as you sit could seriously be hampering your healthy efforts. The time that we now spend sitting; at a desk, driving, watching TV, scrolling on the phone, sitting on a bus or train, or even on a plane, well anywhere else you can sit, is actually detrimental to our health. With sitting […]

Eat This: Concussions and brain injuries

We’ve all likely had a knock to the head at some point in our lives, and ended up with a sore noggin for a bit, whether it is a bruise to the flesh or a nagging headache. But then there’s the trauma to the head and brain that can be impactful to day-to-day life and life-changing but not necessarily for the better. That is an area where, in my experience, more of an integrated approach […]

Eat This: Time Management

Time… why does it seem that there’s never enough of it? After all, there are 86,400 seconds or 1,440 minutes or 24 hours in a day, and most days it’s not enough, right?! But, what would be enough? Twice that, an extra hour, I’m not sure that there would ever be enough time to do what you and I want to get accomplished. Time is the one thing that no amount of money can buy, […]

Eat This: Red Light Therapy

I’m guilty. Yep, this Black Friday I got sucked into a social media post I saw of a colleague, and all that she found amazing about a particular product. I clicked through, saw the benefits and within about 15 minutes made a purchase. Ever done that? Or maybe a better question is, have you done that and NOT regretted it? No buyers remorse from me on my purchase, but I’ve come to realize that I […]

Eat This: TMJ

What is the most important nutrient that we need for a long and healthy life? I’m going to say that you’re not going to get it, but I’m going to circle back to answer that shortly. If your mouth or jaw hurts, how do you think that’s going to affect how and what you eat? If you’re in pain all the time, that means that your adrenal glands are responding to pain seen as stress. […]
