    Digestion: How it Works and How it Could Work Better

    The old adage of “you are what you eat” is actually only partially true. Yes, the quality of nutrition and calories that you consume are important factors of overall health. But how much of that nutrition your body is able to assimilate and incorporate into its muscles, neurons, and tissues is just as vital. And all that depends on your digestive system.The old adage of “you are what you eat” is actually only partially true.

    Whether before a workout or just to get your blood flowing in the morning, physicians and health experts around the globe agree that regular stretching can improve your health. And I am always encouraging patients to incorporate stretching exercises within their daily routines

    What “Soil Depletion” Means for Your Nutrition

    We’ve all heard the proverbial phrase “you are what you eat” in some form or other. Proper nutrition and good eating habits are healthy living fundamentals. The deceptively simple act of eating healthy, however, is influenced by complex factors.

When combined, these factors lead to a consistently calorie-rich but nutrient-poor diet. And a year of lockdowns has not improved the situation.
