A Vital Exercise Suited for Us All

The future of fitness rooted in the past. I’ve currently been working vigorously on updates to several books that I can’t wait to share with you! One is Before the Change—my New York Times bestseller that dives deep into how to feel your best during perimenopause and menopause. One component is, of course, exercise. I am a tremendous proponent of resistance or weight-training exercise because of the effect it has Read More

The Calcium Conundrum

Say no to overload via supplementation. Simply put, I’m not crazy about calcium supplements. That may come as a surprise because you’ve likely consistently been surrounded by the notion of “the more calcium, the better” since childhood. Whether it’s encouraging children to have a “milk mustache” or warning adults and seniors to take their calcium supplementation for the sake of their bone health and future mobility, the calcium push has Read More

Mad About Magnesium!

Why Your Magnesium Supplement Isn’t Measuring Up Magnesium is to minerals what vitamin D is to vitamins.  As the “master mineral” and superstar of over 300 key metabolic functions, it reigns supreme in the mineral kingdom. However, not all magnesium supplements are created equal.   If high blood pressure, leg cramps, migraines, anxiety, irritability, depression, heart disease, unstable blood sugar or insomnia are still challenging your well-being, read on… As the premiere heart mineral, Read More

Mighty Manganese and Sexy Selenium: The Secret Bone-Building Minerals

Micro-minerals with a macro punch. Earlier this week I wrote about bone-building—emphasizing the right kind of calcium, along with vitamin K and vitamin D. Now, I’m going to focus on two bone-building minerals I didn’t write about then, which I feel are important enough to merit a blog of their very own: manganese and selenium. Both are contained in the Osteo-Key product I use and recommend for optimum bone health. The Read More

Milk Maize

Getting the dairy-free calcium you need. For over ten years, we have seen the infamous milk mustache on celebrities, supermodels, and star athletes. The Got Milk? campaign ads are probably the most successful advertising campaign in history. You’ve got to hand it to the dairy industry. The ads must be working because Americans still consume more dairy products than any other nation. And we suffer from far more calcium-related degenerative Read More

Heartburn Pills Raise Pneumonia Risk

A Little Acid Actually Fights Harmful Bacteria. On a daily basis, television bombards us with commercials about antacids and other pills that reduce acid. But those popular purple pills are overused today, research finds. Proton pump inhibitors (or PPIs) are most commonly taken for ulcers, heartburn, and acid reflux. Trouble is we all need some stomach acid to fight bacteria. People taking PPIs are more likely to develop pneumonia. And Read More

Go Gluten-Free to Relieve Abdominal Pain and Osteoporosis

Even Without Full-blown Celiac Disease, You’ll Thrive On a Gluten-free Diet. Approximately one in 133 Americans has celiac disease, caused by sensitivity to gluten (a protein in wheat and other grains). But most don’t know it. Experts estimate that many, many more of us are gluten intolerant. Trouble is the symptoms of this food sensitivity vary greatly and resemble signs of other diseases like colitis, IBS, or wheat allergy. Clues Read More
