I have a secret to tell you

I have a secret to tell you

  I have a little secret to share with you. Today is my birthday, and not only that, this is my LAST birthday in the 50s. Gulp! And while knocking on the door of 60 may sound a little scary on the surface, I honestly feel great! I’m still running every week, doing full-contact karate sparring (fighting men), and enjoying a consistent high level of energy. Plus I recently got mistaken as my daughter’s sister...

A disturbing trend in our society today

A disturbing trend in our society today

  In addition to being the month in which yours truly was born, August is also National Wellness Month. And while that sounds very virtuous and positive, based on my observations, there isn’t a lot of “wellness” going on. The statistics are downright shocking:  Nearly 75 percent of us are overweight or obese, seven out of 10 of us take one or more prescription medications every day, over 70 percent have digestive problems and half...

You better do this—it’s a matter of life or death

You better do this—it’s a matter of life or death

  When I first meet with a client, I typically ask them what’s going on and what their health concerns are.  Then I ask questions.

This is followed by what I’ve observed to be the most dreaded question of all—“”What do you do for exercise?” As you can probably surmise,...

7 Steps to a long, disease-free life

7 Steps to a long, disease-free life

  I hate to say this, but if you are interested in living a long, disease-free life, our modern healthcare system is not the way to do it. I thought this last Friday as I was walking into a local medical center for my bi-weekly acupuncture session.  All the people around me in the lobby were overweight, or could barely walk without pain, or looked like they were at death’s door. And of course, the...

10 ways to stop back pain without dangerous drugs

10 ways to stop back pain without dangerous drugs

  I’m very excited to announce that my daughter Danielle is getting married this weekend!  It’s hard to believe my baby (and my firstborn) is all grown up…and yes, I will be shedding many tears! There will be a party at my house, so needless to say, I’ve been running around like a madwoman this past week cleaning, doing yardwork and decorating. So…I wasn’t entirely surprised when I got some back pain last night.  Even...

What is your ideal bodyweight?

What is your ideal bodyweight?

  Here’s a good one for you. This morning as I was preparing to write today’s blog, I went online to a site that claims to calculate your ideal bodyweight.  I put in my parameters—frame size, height, weight and gender—and guess what. It came back and said I was one pound OVERWEIGHT. Me—the person that consistently eats a healthy diet, works out vigorously six days a week, and at age 57 still wears a size...
