Elaina consulted with me because she felt filled with shame. A beautiful woman with a highly successful career, two children and a loving husband, Ela...
The very granular strategy of choosing foods with shorter ingredient lists allows for cutting out many superfluous grains of salt by way of improving overall nutritional quality. There should be no controversy in that.
The prevailing fashion in nutrition, if not all of health news, is contrarianism. Cutting back on salt was yesterday's news. If today's news were the same as yesterday's news, we might not be confused, and desperately in need of tomorrow's news to help sort it all out. We can't have that!
Listen to yourself all day today -- are you an uplifting, inspiring, positive person to be around? Or you point out what is wrong with everything? Are blaming, judging and criticizing your default patterns? Do you focus on people's weaknesses? If this is you -- STOP IT!
More than a billion people worldwide -- including 800 million children -- are denied the opportunity to realize their potential by parasitic worms that live in the intestines.
If my foot caught fire, I would just go ahead and fetch a pail of water. Soldiering past the want of randomized clinical trials on the topic, and weirdly wonderful fad approaches would test me sorely, but I think I could deal with it.
For those of us who find pleasure in eating, it seems like a daunting task to have to avoid a food that we've enjoyed in the past. However, many of my patients feel so much better health- and energy-wise after eliminating the food allergen that they feel it is a worthwhile trade.
Questions of "how/why" always remain during times of shock and trauma related to our country's tragedies around shootings. What we should know is that we cannot look the other way.
The recent concentration of misleading media hooey about health has been excruciating, but the problem is perennial. I trust I needn't make the case that you are under constant assault by distorted, contorted, titillating, and insipid headlines.
Let's have a helping of common sense along with the pats of butter and dollops of whipped cream. It will go a longer way in keeping us healthy.
This is an interview with Marsha Danzig, founder and director of Yoga for Amputees, as well as Color Me Yoga for children. Marsha is a below-knee ampu...
It makes sense why the "21 Days" myth would spread. It's easy to understand. The time frame is short enough to be inspiring, but long enough to be believable. And who wouldn't like the idea of changing your life in just three weeks?
Whenever a person with a mental disorder (or assumed to have a mental disorder), veteran or civilian, commits a violent act that makes headlines, there is a call to address the "mental health issue" in violent crimes. However, what is meant by the "mental health issue" is generally unclear. The fact is that killings and overall violence are extremely rare by people with serious mental illness.
I believe we have it quite backwards and maybe even upside down and inside out. We must first apply the "L" word to ourselves. Then, it blossoms into something quite remarkable and supremely enriching.
We need to reorient our cultural attitude about obesity so it is not an excuse to argue the respective merits of personal responsibility and public policy. Rather, if we are to fix it at its origins, we need to acknowledge that people who are empowered are most capable, and most inclined, to exercise responsibility.
Adding raw juice to your diet is a good way to consume more essential vitamins and acclimate yourself to a healthier diet.
Radical fervor and echo chamber distortions do quite enough damage to our world without populating our kitchen tables. Be fed up, as I am, with such nonsense -- and we will all wind up eating better.
Many historians believe that Aurelius practiced writing as a daily habit, regardless of the circumstances. Some of his most famous passages were written from outposts and battlefields as he sought to expand the Roman Empire.
NerdWallet sifted through data available on the 50 largest metropolitan areas to find the healthiest places in the U.S. We assessed the general fitness of residents, overall health insurance coverage and the availability of doctors.
It's a great-looking spot filled with great-looking people, but what is most remarkable is the plant-based cuisine.
