They managed to build an entire little city out of ice blocks (2 million pounds of them to be exact) and they had dozens of characters, buildings and furniture topped off with a slide, all made entirely of ice.  It was very cool! (and with a temperature of 9 degrees throughout the rooms...

This Daily Behavior Increases Health Risks Dramatically

Hey!  I hope you're having a great day! Chances are pretty good that you are reading this article while sitting down.  I'm willing to bet that by the end of it you will want to stand up. In a culture that is so heavily influenced by televisions, cars and computers, it seems that sitting is a necessary and even a desired way to posture ourselves in order to do what we want to do.

Can Physical Problems Really Be “Fixed?”

Hey!  I hope you're having a great day and thoroughly enjoyed your Thanksgiving! It was a great day for us.  Food, family, football and the proverbial food coma.  All important Thanksgiving staples!  LOL! Just a forewarning, I'm going to go on a bit of a rant today, but I think you will find it beneficial.  I'll start off by telling you the story about the odd incident that got me thinking about this. Here it goes... I have a client named Bob.  Bob has been very happy about how...

A Vitamin That You DO NOT Want To Be Deficient In

Hey! I hope you're having a great day! This time of the year brings many changes. Changes in the time from daylight savings time, days getting shorter as we approach the winter solstice and cooler temperatures (at least that's what we're told is supposed to happen...). Because of these changes many of us make changes to our daily routines and end up not spending as much time outside during the hours when the sunlight is strong. This can set us up for problems because we can end up...

An Important Blood Test That Will Measure Inflammation

Hey! I hope you're having a great day! Blood work. An unpleasant topic for many people. Just talking about it makes many people cringe. Feeling the needle in your arm and seeing your own blood is enough to make some people throw up and others pass out. I totally get it. I had to get blood drawn dozens of times while going through chemotherapy as a teen and I must say that it was never what I would call enjoyable. However, as I got wiser to the usefulness...

A Pill That Can Reduce Inflammation AND Slow Down Aging? 17 Studies Say…

Hey! I hope you're having a great day! If you've been following my writings for any length of time you know that I am pretty skeptical about claims and marketing ploys made within the health industry. There are too many "facts" taken way out of context and too many companies promising people the world just to get them to become customers. This legitimately bothers me because it makes people think that there is a quick, easy and effortless way to make their body exactly what they want...
