Gut Health

Gut Health. The research is in: A healthy gut = a healthy life. Your #microbiome has been deemed your “second brain” for its influence on mood and general wellbeing. When “bad” bacteria run rampant, and “good” bacteria are in short supply, we feel decreased immunity…

Passion

Passion My fault, my failure, is not in the passions I have, but in my lack of control of them. #kerouac. Late in the year, it’s difficult to maintain our convictions. Holiday travel, eating, and time with family have a way of disrupting our routine. So…

Shoulder Health

Shoulder Health From a small seed a mighty trunk may grow #aeschylus. Strength training will produce robustness: capable of ridding the body of #osteoporosis, #sarcopenia, and #dynapenia.
