Probiotics

There is finally research being conducted on the benefits of probiotics. The most commonly used probiotic is ‘lactobacillis’.

We are all born with close to 3 trillion types of bacteria in our gut. When we are sick, this closely regulated flora becomes disrupted. Probiotics help to restore the natural mix of flora. Our gut is like a rain forest – if we destroy one bacteria, many others fail to thrive. If you are taking long term antibiotics, it may be a good idea to use a probiotic to protect your natural gut flora.

Ask one of our nurse practitioners about this the next time you have an appointment.

Thanksgiving

I think this is the purest holiday..time to sit and reflect on the gifts we have been given…time to share a meal with those we love..time to laugh at silly family jokes..time to eat our traditional foods..time to remember loved ones no longer here..time to surround ourselves with love and light

Our family has Italian heritage and so we have homemade ravioli in addition to all the turkey and trimmings.  The pasta dish serves to wash long past Thanksgiving festivities over our minds..remembering childhood and a peaceful happy grandmother..remembering small children with pasta smeared faces..and remembering rolling dough and filling little ravioli cups…so many different relatives helping in the kitchen..knowing that the tradition is safe for the next generation to pass along..

What are your traditions?

Lifestyle Changes

I talk about healthy lifestyle changes to many of my patients and friends and family.. I truly believe that we – each of us – has the capacity for major self healing on many levels. The biggest lifestyle change comes from silencing those negative voices in your head. Knowing that you are a lovable person and that you are loved is a big step for many. Knowing that frees you to accept the possibility of change and the possibility of a life filled with exuberance and not just acceptance.

Try a positive affirmation each and every morning…’I am loved, I am loving , I am lovable.’ Then you can tackle almost anything.
