There’s something euphoric about strenuous exercise. Once the body warms up and we get into a good rhythm, endorphins kick in and even difficult routines can seem effortless. For many people, strenuous exercise can be addictive. Part of this is because the wear and tear on our muscles unleashes an abundance of feel-good chemicals to alleviate the pain. And as we’ve heard so many times: “no pain, no gain.”
But new research shows we don’t need to suffer with such extreme measures to maintain cardiovascular health. In fact, with all of the stress that difficult workouts place on the body, it’s becoming evident that overly strenuous exercise is simply speeding up the aging process. (more…)
We are having an energy crisis in this country, and it’s not just about fossil fuels. Our frenetic modern lifestyles require constant momentum. We simply don’t have the time–or desire–to be still, regardless of how fatigued we feel. As a result, energy has become a commodity that we buy and ingest.

The winter can be a beautiful season, but when temperatures drop is when our health needs the greatest care. We all know about cold and flu season or the winter blues, for example. But one area that many of us forget to consider during this time of year is heart health. In fact, the risk of heart attack is greater during the cold winter season for a number of reasons that scientists are still unraveling.
If you’ve got a sore throat, it’s probably not strep throat, even though that’s the usual suspect. While infection by harmful Group A Streptococcus bacteria is more common during the winter, most sore throats are actually caused by viruses, according to recent guidelines published by the Infectious Disease Society of America. Of the 10 million Americans who are prescribed antibiotics for a sore throat each year, only about 2 million actually have a bacterial infection, such as streptococcal pharyngitis or strep throat, that is susceptible to the medication. For the rest, the antibiotics are ineffective and may actually hinder the body’s healing efforts. (more…)
The sneaky fat creeping up around your mid-section, a bloated belly after you eat, low energy sabotaging your workout: What do they have in common? They’re all reflections of the direct relationship between sluggish digestion, slow metabolism and weight gain. Overeating during the holidays and engaging in less physical activity means this process can really snowball in the winter. The good news: By increasing digestive efficiency with diet, lifestyle and targeted supplements, we can effectively shed extra fat, boost metabolism and support nearly every other area of health in the process.
