Order Your Own Labs

When was the last time you had a complete work up? Has your provider run basic labs only to tell you that “everything looks normal”? If you are still having chronic health issues, you can order your own functional medicine labs to expedite knowledge of your own physiology, even before you seek the advice of […]

Normal Weight Metabolically Obese (NWMO)

We worry about the obesity epidemic but there is another condition that is also quickly gaining ground. This condition is what some refer to as “skinny fat.”  A more accurate term for this condition is normal weight metabolically obese (NWMO). Basically, this is a condition when a persons BMI (body mass index) is 25 or less […]

High Cholesterol and Breast Cancer: Is There a Connection?

This week two patients called me concerned about their high cholesterol possibly causing breast cancer. I’d seen a related news piece come through Medscape with the headline “High Cholesterol May Boost Breast Cancer Risk” and a quick read assured me that this was just another example of the usual drug-company funded anti-fat propaganda that promotes […]

Struggling with Sleep? You’re Not Alone

Written by Cassie Bjork’s team member, Amy Ranae… As I write this I am sleep deprived. I stayed up too late last night, I was awakened several times, once by my daughter, twice by low blood sugar, several times by an alarm set unreasonably early, which I then proceeded to ‘snooze’ too many times before […]

That’s why I tell my clients to follow the Rule Of Thirds for their meals – it’s easy to understand and it’s simple. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics promotes […]

Top 10 Diabetes Meal Patterns?

A couple of days ago I received the August issue of Today’s Dietitian and was excited to see “The Top 10 Diabetes Meal Patterns” on the cover. My excitement faded, however, when I realized that the list was the same one published by US News & World Report in January, which ranked the Atkins and Paleo diets 25 and 31, respectively. […]

What is HDL Cholesterol?

If you’ve had a blood sample drawn for assessment of lipid panel you probably already know if your cholesterol level is acceptable or not. You might also recall something about good and bad cholesterol and the ratio between these two. Of course there is only one type of cholesterol. The “good” and “bad” has to do with the lipoproteins […]

7 Reasons People Fail At Weight Loss

In my last article, I went over the common fears that keep people from taking the first step to achieving their weight loss goals. But what happens when you have tried losing weight but see no results? Weight loss resistance is one of the most common health complaints I see. In my experience, people are with […]

Yoga for Running… or Simply for Life!

What a perfect combination: yoga + your sport. But even if you’re not someone who’d consider themselves an athlete, read on. Yoga is for all of us. Since I began the first part of my yoga teacher training, the 200-hour course, I’ve grown to love yoga in more ways that I ever could have imagined. […]
