Our Weight Loss and Management Philosophy

One of the keys to losing weight and keeping it off is maintaining muscle during weight loss. Why? Because muscle burns calories and is a major factor in your overall metabolism. If you lose muscle during weight loss, you  reduce your capacity to burn calories. That’s exactly what happens to many people who lose weight, but [...]

How to: Hydration

You’ve heard it many times before: Adequate fluid intake is critical for athletic performance and recovery. But like most athletes, you probably wonder whether your current hydration strategy is optimal. After all, your sense of thirst will not tell you unless you’re already dehydrated, and it’s hard to detect the signs of the initial fluid [...]

Respiratory Health & the Power of the Lungs

Protect Your Lungs Exercise. The better your cardiorespiratory fitness, the easier it is for your lungs to keep your heart and muscles supplied with oxygen. It doesn't matter if you dance under the moon, swim at sunrise, or walk through the woods…just get moving to a level that increases your breathing and heart rate. Puff Off. Smoking [...]

Natural Approaches to Urinary Tract Health

There are times when it feels like biology is destiny. And when it comes to women and urinary tract infections (UTI), there's some truth to that age-old observation. A woman's chance of contracting at least one UTI over her lifetime is close to 50%; once you've had a UTI, you know exactly what it is, [...]

Infertility and Natural Medicine

Both men and women describe infertility as heartbreaking, more stressful than losing a job or getting divorced. Across the United States, approximately 7.5 million women age 15 to 44 have an impaired ability to get pregnant or carry a pregnancy to term; about 5 million men have a fertility problem.   Most male infertility is [...]

Advanced Hormone Testing

Hormones are a tricking thing.  We understand they decline over time and many have a pulsatile nature (fluctuate based upon time of day or day of the month).  Plus, now our exposure to endocrine (hormone) disrupting chemicals (BPA, pesticides, etc.) is insane.  More than 400 of these chemicals have been found in human fat.  If [...]

Toxic Weight Loss

Tis the season when shedding some of those leftover winter pounds is on everyone’s mind.  Gyms are bustling, personal trainers can again afford to eat (been there done that), and you begin to get nervous about the half marathon a couple of months away that your friend guilted you into signing up for and haven’t [...]

High-Fructose Corn Syrup’s Bitter Bite

I honestly believe the biggest threat to America today is not terrorism or global warming, but our health (or lack thereof).  Granted, this may be my own bias as a physician, however the facts are disturbing nonetheless. According to the CDC, 35.7% of U.S. adults are obese.  In 2008, this cost us $147 billion.  Medical [...]
