We may not "feel" as thirsty during the colder months, but our bodies' need for hydration remains.
Remember that hydration isn't just about drinking water. A proper balance of healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals is essential.
As a rule, always start your day with a glass of water to rehydrate your body after a night's sleep. If you tire of plain water play it up by adding a spritz of lemon, a few crushed mint leaves, or some sliced cucumbers or berries.
Cheers!

Prunes contain vitamins and minerals that promote bone health. Although studies have used 11 prunes per day, we recommend between two and four.
Look for unsweetened, unsulfured prunes.

Looking for a new, tasty, and festive recipe? Try this sweet potato mash! We made it a few years ago in our cooking class, The Teaching Kitchen. We used butternut squash instead of sweet potatoes and also browned the butter in a pan just before adding it in. It was delicious! If you try it, let us know how you like it!

A properly-functioning digestive system is a key part of good health. Any problems with the GI tract can not only lead to aches, bloating, or diarrhea; it can also indicate chronic health problems that may seem unrelated, such as rheumatoid arthritis and type 1 diabetes, skin problems, and heart disease. To help ensure that everything is functioning properly we use a Functional Medicine program called the ‘5R Framework for Gut Restoration.'

While it is best to have the guidance of a Functional Medicine practitioner, there are some things you can start doing on your own! If you are ready to start your journey, we are here to help.

The two best times of the year to check your levels are:

+In the fall- usually higher with supplements and sun exposure.
+In the spring- usually at its lowest with supplements and without sun exposure.

Can you relate to this pain pattern? The trigger points in this muscle can refer pain down the back and side of the leg, mimicking symptoms of sciatica. Trigger points can become active due to prolonged periods of sitting or standing, repetitive movements, and a chronic rotation of the pelvis.
Painful transition from sitting to standing? Hard time crossing your leg? Hip pain at night? Come in and fix it!

Why should you practice strength training? Because:
-it stimulates the production of human growth hormone, which helps build muscle and burn fat.
-muscular strength provides protection against heart disease, cancer, hypertension, obesity, and metabolic syndrome.
-it increases insulin sensitivity, which helps control blood sugar and decreases risk of type 2 diabetes.

The best away to help carpal tunnel syndrome is to prevent from happening. Strengthening your fingers and forearms, stretching your upper extremity and neck, and watching your posture, especially when using a computer, are key.

If you already have carpal tunnel syndrome these fixes can help too. Give us a call as therapy may be the next step up.

10/11/2022

The carpal tunnel is an opening formed by the carpal bones and the transverse carpal ligament. Carpal tunnel syndrome happens when the median nerve (which provides sensory and motor function to the thumb and first three fingers) is compressed as it passes through the tunnel.

Risk factors include:
+Repetitive, small movements with the hands, such as with typing.
+Repetitive grasping movements, and excessive flexion of the wrist.
+Joint or bone disease.
+Inflammation.

Symptoms include weakness while gripping; tingling or burning, especially in the thumb and index finger; pain or numbness that disrupts sleep (wearing an over-the-counter wrist brace for a few nights can help keep the wrist in a neutral position).

10/07/2022

Supplements we love!
Specialized Pro-resolving Mediators (SPMs) represent a portion of the Omega-3 fatty acid that plays a role in helping the body resolve the immune response, inhibit additional inflammation, clear away the damaging byproducts of inflammation, and aid in tissue remodeling.

If you are interested in learning more about SPMs or to order yours, call us at 480.990.0664.

The movement of our body's energy is as important as our physical movement. Have you been feeling a little stagnant lately?

Traditionally, for general health maintenance, acupuncture may be done at the change of the seasons to ensure that stagnation doesn't settle in.

For most people a cup of coffee in the morning is the best way to start their day. Here's how to get the best out of your coffee:

*Buy the beans directly from a local roaster or in sealed packages from the grocery store. Keep them in an opaque, airtight container at room temperature for up to three weeks from the roast date.

*Coffee beans start to lose their flavor immediately after grinding, so buy whole beans and grind them right before brewing.

*Conventional coffee beans are one of the most chemically treated crops in the world. For a pesticide-free cup, pick an organic brand. Support coffee farmers by choosing Fair Trade Certified beans, which guarantees that growers are paid a fair wage with a fixed minimum.

The trapezius muscle is one of the most common muscles to develop myofascial trigger points. These trigger points refer pain to the back of the head, the temple, the midback, and above the eyebrow.
Treatment can include manual therapy, therapeutic ultrasound, and working on posture!

If you were looking for more ways to eat chocolate, here you go!
Chocolate, like wine, can have undertone flavors that reflect the taste of the soil and climate where it grew. Cocoa, the primary ingredient, has triple the antioxidants of green tea, helps reduce cholesterol and blood pressure, and improves insulin sensitivity.
It is important to remember that the best chocolate is one that isn't spiked with sugar or other additives.

If you sit too long here is a quick routine you can practice at work or home to get your blood flowing and your muscles working.
*Practice with caution.*

09/02/2022

What happens when we sit too much? A few things:
--We increase our risk for heart disease, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
--We deactivate the muscles of our lower bodies and critical tissues that stabilize and support our spine, leading to all sorts of orthopedic problems like back and neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and pelvic floor dysfunction.

Did you also know that a typical office worker suffers more musculoskeletal injuries than any industry sector worker??

Happy National Dog Day!!

08/15/2022

It's National Relaxation Day!
Slowing down, relaxing, and resting are all part of being productive. To celebrate, here are some ideas:
1. Take a deep breath before you start eating.
2. Give yourself a 1 minute break to clear your mind when faced with a difficult task.
3. Get a massage!
4. Practice a short and easy moving sequence in the morning, during your work day, or before bed.
5. Fill up the tub, pour some Epsom salt in, and relax for 20 minutes.
6. On your walks, tune in to your body's sensations, what you see, hear, sense.

Let us know in the comments how you like to relax!

Before you pat yourself on the back for losing weight, figure out what you lost.
For many years the focus has been on "losing weight." As long as the number on the scale goes down, we're happy, right? In weight loss, muscle is the first to go. Let's change the focus to preserving muscle (extremely important as we age!).

Body shape and fat distribution are important factors when considering health risks associated with obesity.

Adults who store a lot of excess fat around their waist (“apple-shaped” bodies) have an increased risk of high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea and stroke, compared with those who have the same amount of body fat stored around their hips and thighs (“pear-shaped” bodies).

08/02/2022

Waist to Hip Ratio is calculated by dividing your abdominal waist by your hip circumference and indicates the prevalence of visceral fat, the dangerous internal fat which coats the organs.

The main cause of obesity‐related deaths is cardiovascular disease, for which abdominal obesity is a predisposing factor.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), a healthy WHR is under 0.9 for men, and under 0.85 for women.

Before running you mastered walking. Before walking you mastered crawling. Before crawling you mastered turning on your back and on to your belly. So, with any new goal, focus on the basics, master them, and your goal will be that much more attainable.

Our Story

Gray Cook said, "Move well, then move often." This is an important part of our Functional Medicine philosophy.

This principle applies to athletes, elderly, moms, those dealing with chronic disease, kids, grandparents, everyone! It is directly connected to quality of life.

First, you have to be able to properly move. That may mean simply walking without limping, standing up without pain, or being able to bend over. Or, it may mean having good range of motion and form when performing a sport so you can push yourself to the next level. If you aren’t moving and you aren’t moving properly, your entire health will suffer for it.

If you sit too long, you have most likely shortened your hip flexors and messed with the curvature of the lumbar spine. When you go to stand or walk, you may have pain in your low back or your gait will be impaired.
