Life is defined by movement. Physical activity is the way we endorse that primary law. Your body was built to move. To sit still as much as we do goes totally against our nature.

When it comes to food and drink, for many, the holidays are a time of indulgence. And along with it often comes the thought of how, when the holidays are done, “a detox” or “cleanse” will be just the thing to make it all better. While we certainly don’t want to dissuade you from that […]

In a world where “pain management” seems to be the best that conventional medicine has to offer, prolozone therapy can appear downright wondrous. In reality, its power is straightforward: Stimulate oxygen utilization and cellular growth factors in the affected tissues, and, in the words of Dr. Frank Shallenberger, “an area of chronic pain will become […]

The four basics of health we mentioned last week are just that – basics. They’re important, but they focus exclusively on the physical.

When it comes to health, it seems a lot of us talk a good game but don’t always have the best follow-through. According to one comprehensive Nielsen survey, almost everyone – 89% – says that the best way to stay healthy is to take personal responsibility for your health.

We’ve looked before at what too much sitting can do, how it raises your risk of heart problems, obesity, diabetes, and the chronic inflammation that fuels a wide range of other health problems.

It’s easy to see mental health and physical health as being totally separate things. But as science has shown over the years, emotional well-being has real effects on physical well-being – and vice versa.
