Cod Liver, Fish, Krill, Algal & Flaxseed Oils. Which Supplement Is Best For You?

Many people might think all fish oil supplements are created equally, however, it turns out there is a difference between fish liver oils, such as cod liver oil, and other fish oils.

Eating Fast Food May Be a Fast Track to Fatty Liver Disease

We have previously discussed the issue known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). It is normal for the liver to have some fat, but if more than 5-10 percent of the liver’s weight is fat, then it is considered to be a fatty liver. To put it simply, NAFLD is a fatty liver usually caused by bad foods (such as nutrient-void, processed foods) and occurs in people who drink little to no alcohol.

If You Are Having a Rough Time With ‘Dry January,’ This May Help

If you are finding that participating in ‘Dry January’ is extremely difficult and white knuckling through it (only about a week left), I think it is time to reevaluate your relationship with alcohol. In the meantime, I came across a recent article with helpful tips from a life coach who is sober every month of the year.

Skin Issues? T-Shock May Be Just What You Need!

After Diana cleansed and exfoliated my skin, it felt like my face could breathe again. Then, came the fun part - the T-Shock treatment. T-Shock uses a wand that transitions from hot to cold to improve elasticity, tighten and brighten the skin. Not only does this treatment stimulate the production of collagen, it also aids in lymphatic drainage which is huge for health and appearance of the skin.

Is Red Light Therapy the New Melatonin?

Red light therapy (RLT) is a form of low-level laser (light) therapy (LLLT) and is offered in many medical office settings. Think of it as like a healthy tanning bed. During a session, the light delivers wavelengths of natural red and near infrared light. It’s like the wavelengths you get from sunlight without the harmful UV rays. RLT improves the appearance of skin and promotes healing. It is also able to stimulate bone growth and recovery as well as soft tissue repair. It is so powerful and effective that NASA used RLT to keep astronauts healthy while in space.

Why You Might Want To Extend ‘Dry January’ To Every Month

After booze-soaked holidays and the desire to get back in shape and healthier at the top of a new year, many may feel inspired to temporarily go alcohol-free or at least significantly cut back. However, come February, they often find themselves back to their old drinking habits (a nightly glass of wine, a few cocktails at their weekly ‘Happy Hour,’ binge drinking on the weekends).

Give Your Hair Some Much Needed TLC With Red Light Therapy

Red light therapy is popular for treating skin issues such as wrinkles, acne, scars, sun damage and more. The light is absorbed by the skin and can stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and other molecules that are important for healthy skin. So it makes sense that red light therapy would have a positive influence on hair growth and health, especially when you look at it from the perspective that hair grows from your scalp which is skin.

What Happened to Damar Hamlin and How Is It Different Than Heart Attack?

Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest, the leading medical cause of death in young athletes. This is not the same as having a heart attack or experiencing heart failure. Let’s educate ourselves about these three issues.

Rutabagas Are Healthy, But You May Want to Eat In Moderation (Along With Other Root Veggies)

Knowing how to eat is just as (if not more) important as knowing what to eat. I think it’s pretty much common knowledge that whole, unprocessed foods, such as fruits and vegetables, are far more healthier than nutrient-void, processed foods. I do, however, believe that many are unaware of how important it is to also know how to properly portion certain plant-based foods.

The Best Change You Can Make in 2023 May Be Drinking More Water. Here’s Why

I’m not really one for new year's resolutions. Ninety-one percent of Americans will not achieve their new year’s resolutions. But if you are not good about drinking enough water throughout the day, make a concerted effort to get better about this in 2023.

Another Severe B12 Deficiency Makes The News. Don’t Let This Happen To You.

“You are what you eat” is a popular saying. I would like to modify that saying a bit to “You are what you eat and supplement.”

6 Ways I Improved My Joint Health and Became Pain Free

After 30 years of playing golf, I developed some pain in my left shoulder. To be honest, the pain was pretty annoying with a burning sensation. I suspected a heart problem with the shoulder pain because heart disease runs in my family. But after having an MRI, I discovered I had mild osteoarthritis (often called “wear-and-tear”), mild tendinosis (makes sense because one of the symptoms is burning) and mild bursitis.
