In some ways, anti-aging is a hopeless pursuit. We all inevitably age. Well, if we’re lucky. We all eventually kick the bucket too. That’s just how life works. We can’t be young and vibrant without the inevitable keeping it all in balance. However, that doesn’t mean that we have to grow old in an unhealthy way. In fact,

I amazed when I saw my 69-year-old aunt sits in a perfect flat-footed squat, like the kind you might see a three-year-old perform. It was amazing. That kind of balance is not common in people her age. It’s not even particularly common in people decades younger than her. When I commented, she said it was her party
Strong and healthy muscles matter. There is really no other way to say it. Your muscles allow you to move freely, send blood throughout your body, lift things, and promote independence. Without strong muscles, you’re at risk for increased dependence and a host of health troubles. Muscles even play a role in ways you might
Over the past few weeks, there has been growing concern about a coronavirus outbreak. Are you at high risk? Probably not. Although a handful of North American cases have come to light in the past week, the virus is largely concentrated in Wuhan, China. Other countries in the Far East have reported cases, but that
Most snacks aren’t doing anything for your health. In fact, most of them contribute to weight gain, poor gut health, and a host of associated problems. But what are you supposed to do when hunger hits between meals and you’re craving that crunch? New research affirms ancient insight and common sense: Grab some walnuts. Walnuts
“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” — Unknown A few days ago, my wife said something that stirred an immediate flash of anger. Perhaps you can remember being at a similar crossroads? You can:
Commentary The Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) default mode of lies, secrecy, and propaganda blunted its response to, at the time, what was then a local epidemic. By not listening to and silencing frontline doctors in Wuhan City hospitals, such as the late Dr. Li Wenliang, Chinese authorities exacerbated the spread of the coronavirus outbreak. For that reason alone, China under
What Is It? The new coronavirus first emerged in the central Chinese city of Wuhan in early December. The virus is in the same family of pathogens that cause the flu and SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome). The World Health Organization on Feb. 11 officially named the disease “COVID-19,” an acronym for coronavirus disease 2019. Researchers are
Your immune system is central to overall health, yet it can be easy to overlook. When thinking about good health, people tend to focus on their heart, muscle strength, weight, and bones. Your immune system, however, compliments all of those components. A healthy immune system can help protect you from danger, toxins, infections, allergens, and
The incubation period for the new coronavirus can be as long as 24 days, according to the largest-study yet analyzing patients of the disease. The Feb. 9 study, which has yet to be peer-reviewed, was led by renowned Chinese respiratory doctor Zhong Nanshan and written in collaboration between 38 Chinese researchers. It analyzed around 1,100 patients across
Wouldn’t it be great if there was a magic pill for brainpower? Or at least a food you could eat to ensure your memory and decision-making abilities remained at a high level into the future? Unfortunately, things are not so easy. Memory slips and cognitive decline are commonplace with age. Low stimulation, inflammation, isolation, and
Americans are watching with alarm as a new coronavirus spreads in China and cases pop up in the United States. They are barraged with information about what kinds of masks are best to prevent viral spread. Students are handing out masks in Seattle. Masks have run out in Brazos County, Texas. Hang on. I’ve worked as an emergency room physician.
Good health can be tough to achieve, and it impacts our lives in so many ways, from finances, to how we perform at work, to our relationships with family and friends. Most of us know we should eat more fruits and vegetables, stay away from processed foods, drink plenty of water, and exercise. These are core
When I think about the amount of sugar I ate as a child, I am appalled. Every holiday was a love-fest of jelly beans, chocolate kisses, candy canes, and frosted cookies. At the time, we didn’t know any better, other than the fact that we were making our local dentist wealthy. Now we know better,
When you feel stressed or anxious, you might not want to talk about your feelings. And contrary to popular belief, that might be a good thing. It doesn’t mean that you should leave them bottled up, either. New research is showing that one of the best ways to deal with stress and anxiety is to
I’m a very vocal proponent of drinking tea daily. People ask me all the time why tea is my go-to and not coffee: well, let’s be clear. I drink coffee, too, but tea has so many mind-body wellness benefits to it that there’s no debating its advantages for well-being. Let’s take a look. Theanine and Neurotransmitter
Alexander Fleming discovered the first antibiotic, penicillin, in 1927. Since then, antibiotics – drugs that fight bacterial infections – have saved millions of lives worldwide. The term “antibiotic” refers to both natural and synthetic compounds that destroy or inhibit the growth of susceptible bacteria that cause disease in humans or animals. Patients sometimes ask their doctors
By Derek Henry, Holistic Health Coach for Healing the Body The typical choices we make in the grocery store have fallen significantly short of providing the nutrients we require in order to live a healthy lifestyle.
