Treat yourself with a little kindness today

Confession: “I’m not taking off weight fast enough!” After all it seemed like I gained it overnight. One day I woke up and was 30 lbs heavier than I was the last time I weighed.

Dr. Linda Mintle suggests that an outright ban is counter-intuitive and isn’t the best way to promote health; she discusses the ban, responsible…

How’s your balance?

Life is a continual balancing act. Whenever your equilibrium is disturbed, say between “have–to’s” and “want-to’s”, you feel the discomfort of being off-kilter right away. Not so with your physical balance. Nearly every patient whose balance I test and find lacking is thoroughly surprised. Young and old alike,…
