by In case you hadn’t noticed, men have a pretty lackadaisical attitude toward their health—an attitude that contributes to the fact that they’re about 50% more likely than women to die of heart disease, 20% more likely to die of a stroke, and 15% more likely to die of cancer. And the situation is getting worse, with women outliving men by about 5 years.Sounds pretty grim, doesn’t it? Well, it doesn’t...

by Those of us who have been marked by the scars of emotional and physical abuse in childhood or as adults know how deep the trauma can penetrate. Our bodies heal, we grow and we cast off many of the superficial appearances that marked us as victims, but the emotional aftershocks remain long afterwards.Since the early days of psychiatry, we’ve known that abuse can put sufferers at risk of depression,...
by Typically, in a long-distance relationship, 80% of women are the pursuer and 80% of men are the distancer. While they are in love, they see each other infrequently. This is fine for the distancer, but not so for the pursuer. In long distance relationships, distancers promise the moon, but deliver little. This is why the couple rarely sees each other and the phone, email, and text become a large part...
by There are many benefits to laughter – the release of endorphins, the lowering of blood pressure, the reduction of levels of stress hormones and a general sense of well-being. However, every silver lining has its cloud. Repetitive facial movements like laughing or smiling can cause wrinkles or creases around the mouth or eyes. If you’ve noticed these lines on your face, don’t stop laughing yet! There...

by The idea of eating to suppress appetite is more than a little appealing, and it makes sense. Of course, when you think about it, we do in fact eat to remove hunger. That sounds like an oversimplification but sometimes keeping it simple works out for the best. Since many people reach out to food in times of stress, anxiety and depression, sometimes we do have to make sure we are eating to fully satisfy...
by Here is a true confession that I don't include in my bio on my website. In the not so long ago past I had been carrying an extra 20 pounds on my not so large 5'4" frame. How much I weighed doesn't matter. It was too much for me, my height, my age and my body type ( I was not a body builder so I hardly had that excuse).So how did it come to be that someone who has extensive training in nutrition and...
by Has finding lasting love made you feel insane? Have you found yourself attracting the same type of mate and suffering through the same painful prolonged breakups? Have you vowed never – and I mean never – to date or fall in love again?
