Hello friend, A few years ago, I was sitting in an airport restaurant waiting for a connecting flight back home. A country song titled What's A Girl Like You Doing In A Place Like This? came over the restaurant radio as I was waiting for my order. At first I paid little attention to it and then after a few minutes I put the title in Google to find out more. It turns out that the song was written and sung by Jim Ed Brown, published in 1968 on his album, This Is My Beat. In just two minutes and...

As a society, we are really under-muscled. If you've ever seen a loved one suffer from a bad fall, you understand the critical importance of maintaining muscle strength. Muscle mass reaches its peak in our 30s, then gradually declines in a process known as sarcopenia, which affects over 45% of older...

Hello friend, Last week I was thinking about a recent trip I took to Portland to visit a childhood friend. It was my first time seeing her face-to-face in over thirty years. Over the years we've spent hours on the phone catching up; we never miss holidays or birthdays but life has never made it so that we could actually be in the same time zone at the same time until this year. The occasion was her 55th birthday and the timing was perfect. I told her that I'd been feeling an odd sense of...

Hello friend, I used to work with a woman who deeply believed in luck. She would often point out successful people who she believed were 'in the right place at the right time' and would often say "It's all in who you're lucky enough to know." Ironically, she believed she was unlucky simply because whenever she set out towards a goal, no matter how big or small, some form of adversity would present itself. One year, while we were all gathered in the office cafeteria discussing New Year's...

Have you ever been told by past healthcare providers you're "fine" even though you don't feel fine? This is something I hear from many of my clients when they speak about their prior experiences before coming to me. One of the services I provide - even virtually - is functional nutrition and lab...

Hello friend, How old were you when you first heard someone say, "who do you think you are?" If you're anything like me it was probably so long ago that you don't remember exactly who said it but I'm sure you remember exactly how it made you feel. When I think back, it all started in Mrs. Lynch's fourth grade class at California Avenue Elementary School in Long Island, New York. Because I was fascinated with science, loved reading and got good grades, I was moved into an advanced class. That...
