Yes, after a 10-year codependent relationship where I over-invested and over-gave, while receiving very little in return, I am finally dumping you. And here is why.
The hope is that, in the future, cancer patients may be able to take a resveratrol-derived drug to help their bodies become more sensitive to chemotherapy -- and help those drugs destroy those cancer cells once and for all.
Technology is fabulous, and there's no denying that. I support it, I buy it, I use it and I love it. At the end of the day, there are still certain things I need to keep in my life that require the sole attention of my brain and body parts.
It doesn't end with one conversation. It's an ongoing learning opportunity for all of you. Children are smart, intuitive and very empathic. Their connection to you runs deep.
To maximize your fitness program, strength training should be an equally important partner to aerobic training. This partnership will help these two routines benefit one another, and the end result will be a more balanced approach to fitness with enhanced results.
In the late '80s, AIDS was mentioned daily in the news, and misinformation and fear were widespread. I wondered how I could keep my young sons safe. So I volunteered as a Community AIDS Educator.
Evidently, exercising keeps our brain in shape just as much as it does our bodies. The great news is that it doesn't take much to reap the benefits -- moderate exercise, brisk walks, even just 30 minutes a day -- can power up our brain to renew itself and keep us sharp as a tack.
My personal motto is never be ashamed of something that keeps you alive. That's what I've stuck with. My tubes are my lifeline and without them I would literally drop dead.
I've come to realize that there's a calmness surrounding people who are strong their sobriety. A certainty in who they are and what they stand for. A sense of serenity, if you will. There are numerous reasons that sobriety and sober people are hella sexy.
This doesn't mean physicians shouldn't write exercise prescriptions. Instead there needs to be a comprehensive approach that's not just focused on physicians. Simply writing a prescription isn't going to solve the obesity problem.
It seems that we adult Type 1s who have officially aged out of the juvenile stage and who aren't sick are now going around confusing everybody. Sorry. I lived.
When it comes down to it, weight should be a byproduct of how we view health. Sure, certain numbers can tell us a whole heck of a lot about our health. But numbers can't tell us how we feel emotionally, physically, or spiritually. Numbers cannot tell us how our bodies feel.
The weight of a woman is more than a number that flashes on a small screen. The real weight of a woman can't be measured by a machine, because it includes so much more than how much or how little fat you have on your body.
Anyone who has followed the so-called "breast cancer screening controversy" knows that the disagreements about whether and when healthy women should get a mammogram are more political than scientific.
Let me ask you all a question: Doesn't it seem more humane to assign a teenager perhaps two hours of homework each night?
With the USPSTF's recommendations getting all of the press lately, it is important to know that many professionals still do recommend that screening mammograms start at age 40 and should be performed every year. This is what I recommend in my practice.
I felt more relaxed than usual. My attention couldn't go to a device, and I wasn't looking at my phone nearly as often during the day. We went out hiking and there we were together -- with trees, lakes, and mountains. That's where my attention went: on us and on nature.
These four studies are among the best we have to date. And three out of the four were short-term and looked at a very small number of participants. And none address the elephant in the room: What happens to your risk of heart disease, cancer, and overall mortality if you follow this diet for years?
The next time you feel anxious, rather than squelching it, give some thought to the kind of anxiety you are experiencing. There may be an important message worth heeding. If your anxiety is causing you to question a moral dilemma, embrace it -- or at least be open to it. The anxiety you are experiencing may be more helpful than you realize.
