food & nutrition

I have always enjoyed smoothies.  They taste great and are a wonderful way to pack in a whole bunch of nutrition and goodness.  I find them especially handy to take on the go when rushing out the door in the morning (without missing breakfast!) and as an afternoon snack when there is a tendancy to have an energy slump.

massage therapy

Many studies on the benefits of massage therapy have been released over the years. There is much evidence for the beneficial effects of massage therapy for improving sleep, reducing pain, improving myofascial quality and function, as well as many other conditions. What many people don't know is that massage can be helpful for the cardiovascular system.

Squats are one of the most basic and fundamental human postures. Starting as children we instinctively go into a deep squat when we wanted to reach for something low or hold ourselves in a stable squatting position to engage in play. Observe any small child and you'll notice how instinctive and important this posture is. However, after a long period of sitting primarily in chairs and/or wearing poor footwear, adults can have trouble getting into this once important movement.

Seaweed is the commonly used name for a large range of marine (both fresh and salt water) plants and algae. Seaweed is full of vitamins, minerals and fibre. Most notable is its high content of iodine, a nutrient seldom found in other foods. Seaweed not only provides the base of most marine food chains, but also provides a wide range of benefits to humans (see this article for a more comprehensive discussion of the benefits). Among these benefits are dietary and medicinal.

Thousands of knee and shoulder surgeries are performed every year at an enormous and multi-layered cost to our health care system as well as to us individually. But are these surgeries all necessary? Recent research on the surgical outcomes of specific types of knee and shoulder vs "sham" surgery or conservative (non-surgical) treatment may have you second guessing going under the knife.
