Backpacks are a popular and practical way for children and teenagers to carry schoolbooks and supplies. They are designed to distribute the weight of the load among some of the body's strongest muscles. When used correctly, backpacks can be a good way to carry the necessities of the school day. Here are some tips to keep in mind when using a backpack.

Do you suffer from low immunity, joint pain, brain fog, mood issues, cravings or an autoimmune disease? All of these health issues are related to poor gut function. Great health begins in the digestive tract. You can be eating all organic foods, leafy greens and pastured meats, but if the digestive system isn’t able to fully digest, assimilate, and excrete your meals, you won’t come close to reaching your potential.
Our digestive system is working overtime to break down food into building blocks for energy, and turns some of it into various substances ... Read More

There are an awful lot of things that you do when you are an adult. (Let me be clear, I personally want to do all of these things, because the other option is moving back in with my mother, and let’s be honest, that’s not an option!) But let’s be honest, it’s exhausting!
Just to name a ... Read More

Diane was tired of sitting on the sidelines. Years of knee issues had resulted in painful bone-on-bone arthritis and left her unable to participate in all the activities she loved – hiking with her family, keeping up with her twin daughters, playing with her many nieces and nephews. “It was so bad, I could barely get up off the couch,” she says. Under the care of Commonwealth surgeon David Novak, MD, Diane tried everything she could to avoid surgery, including physical therapy and cortisone injections. But when conservative management failed, she knew she ... Read More

I have always chuckled at the answer, “I am round, round is a shape.”
No two people are built exactly alike and that is what makes us special. Become familiar with your body type—knowledge is power and the tape measure is a necessary item in your style toolbox.
Ladies are you average, petite or tall?
Have you ever taken your true measurements?
Where do you carry your weight— are you bigger on the top, bigger on the bottom, bigger in the middle? We all carry our weight somewhere on our frame ... Read More

Did you know that your body is comprised of over 70% water – not soda, coffee or tea, and if dehydrated you would probably fit inside a moderate sized capsule? Well maybe not a capsule but the 70% is true.
Your body needs to be hydrated with water in order to rid it of toxins and other harmful waste that can damage cell activity.
People who are not well hydrated may complain of such issues as fatigue, digestive disturbances and headaches as well as pimples, dry skin or dry hair.

What is a Stress Fracture?
Each day, the body produces new bone to replace the bone that is broken down by the stress of everyday living. Usually, this process is balanced, with the body replacing the amount of bone lost.

As a result, micro cracks, called “stress fractures," can occur in the bone.
What are treatment options?
Since stress fractures most often occur as a result of ... Read More
