Adult Onset ADHD Totally Different Than Childhood ADHD

Ever since I blogged about 5 Holistic Ways To Treat ADHD a few weeks ago, I’ve gotten dozens of emails from readers wondering if the same approach would help them with their adult ADHD too. So this is the perfect time to update you on the latest medical research about adult onset ADHD and give you a few additional recommendations.   Although adulthood ADHD can absolutely simply be a continuation for childhood ADHD, researchers are now finding out that there is a separate, totally different, adult onset ADHD syndrome.   This is important to understand, because currently to have a […]

How To Age-Proof Your Brain (plus 12 more medically proven anti-aging tips)

According to a recent study just published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, burning calories from physical activity is what preserves brain volume as we age, and is capable of slashing Alzheimer’s risk in half!   Although we’ve long known that being physically active is neuroprotective, this latest study shows a direct correlation between energy expenditure (calories burned from physical activity) and the volume of gray matter in our brains. And excitingly, this brain boost is independent of cognitive status, meaning even elderly who have already begun to exhibit cognitive changes will benefit from increasing their activity level. The results

Warmer Weather = Stinkier Pits… Unless You Do This!

Last week I presented a recent study that revealed: If you avoid the sun, your mortality rate is actually higher than the mortality rate of a heavy smoker!   So instead of avoiding the sun, I encouraged you to get out there this spring and summer and enjoy the weather! I also gave you some of my recommendations for keeping your skin safe while going outside under those damaging UV rays. But when you are outside in that beautiful sunshine, it’s not just the UV exposure… it’s also the sweat!   For odor protection, I don’t recommend antiperspirant or deodorant…

Are Your Shoes Causing More Harm Than Good?

So… I’m not particularly into shoes.   Seeing the beautiful results of Earthing on my patients (and in my own life) has me opting for going barefoot whenever possible, and sleeping grounded at night too.   So I found it very interesting when the latest medical reports showed that the new trend towards maximalist shoes (thick soles, thick padded heels) completely failed to cushion the foot on impact and in fact increases the risk for injury…. the exact opposite of manufacturers’ claims.   Turns out, cushioning does more harm than good for the dynamics of your foot, luring you into

Plan To Get Your Body Moving In 2014?

If you follow my blog, you already know I am a huge fan of walking to reduce your risk of diabetes as well as for cancer recovery.   Moving my body more is certainly an ongoing goal for me in my own life… something I really want to do but never seem to find the time to prioritize. I don’t have the time (or desire) to fit in trips to the gym and I’ve never found an exercise DVD that I’ve felt like doing more than once. Enter… The Inspire Workouts.   This is an innovative program that combines positive

The Most Effective Way To Recover From Cancer

Today I’ll be reviewing a recently published study that examines the link between exercise and health… specifically, cancer recovery.   Just like last week’s article, the article today shows that being up on your feet — simply walking — is the best predictor of positive outcome in cancer recovery we have. No stressful or intense exercise needed.   Just being up and about daily is a better predictor of cancer recovery and reduces mortality rates better than any chemotheraputic agent we have, reports Dr. John Marshall, MD.   Published on Jan 13, 2013 in the Journal Of Clinical Oncology, researchers

Studies Prove: Long Term Health Is NOT About Exercising Hard

  For years physicians have been recommending an exercise program for cardiometabolic health. Well… turns out it’s not really about the intensity of the exercise.   Several landmark studies have come out in the past few months revealing that it’s not how strenuously you exercise that matters. In fact, it doesn’t matter if you “exercise” at all.   What matters, both in cardiovascular health and in cancer prognosis, among other parameters… is how often you just get up and move around. Answer this… what do you think is healthier? Do you think it is better to:   Hit the gym
