Have The Blues? Consider Ocean Therapy
Many of us have experienced going to the beach, walking past the shoreline and letting the ocean’s water submerge our feet. We take a deep breath, smell the salty air, and exhale. It’s relaxing, rejuvenating and even relieving. I used to casually refer to this experience as ocean therapy.

I Went On Vacation, And Cassava Flour Started Calling My Name
During a recent vacation to Jamaica, I was served cassava dumplings with my entree one night at dinner. I then located an article about cassava flour and became very intrigued, because I never thought that cassava, a root vegetable, would transform into a flour.
Having Heart Surgery? Consider Getting a Pre-Op Nutrition Test
The critical role that nutrition plays in staying healthy, including recovering from surgery, is well known. Vitamin C, for example, may be an important nutrient to speed up wound healing. But while medical specialties such as oncology, gastroenterology and pediatrics routinely include identifying and remedying nutritional deficiencies as part of their treatment plans, this has not always necessarily been the case with cardiac surgery.
‘Slugging’ is the TikTok Skin Trend, But Will It Help Fight Winter Dryness?
Try slugging if you want, but I also think it is important to make sure that the skin is properly exfoliated so that products such as our moisturizers can actually penetrate the skin and do their job. If your skin is not properly exfoliated, then slugging is not going to be as effective.
Cod Liver, Fish, Krill, Algal & Flaxseed Oils. Which Supplement Is Best For You?

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.
