  • How to Improve Artery Function Endothelial dysfunction is the initial step in the development of peripheral artery disease, heart disease, and stroke. As I discuss in my video Plant-Based Diets and Artery Function, the remarkable finding is that progressive endothelial dysfunction—the decline in the functioning of our arteries—is not an inevitable consequence of aging. We can retain the arterial function we had in our 20s ...
  • Holiday Dining Thanksgiving is upon us, and with it comes the opportunity to spend meaningful time with family and friends, to sit down and share a meal together – something that we may not do as often as we’d like given the hustle and bustle of our busy world. It gives us a chance to enjoy a ...
  • “In the Mouth of the Wolf” / Fitness AFTER 40: Your STRONG Body at 40, 50, 60 and Beyond! “In bocca al lupo…” While running a marathon, my legs are my friends. My core and bottom, however, become my screaming enemies at mile 20. The crowd cheers, “you’re almost there!” but, let’s be honest, six miles is a long way from almost. I am “in bocca al lupo,” which translates to “in the mouth of the ...
  • A Lesson in Live Your Best (or The Popsicle Parky) Frozen. But not in the way you would think.

  • AC/PD On Tour with Parkinson’s It may rhyme with the 80’s rock band AC/DC but the only thing air conditioning and Parkinson’s has in common with the band is that they both can make me shake all over. I was about to take the stage in front of 200 or so healthcare leaders and I was quite uncertain that I could ...
  • Alzheimer’s Disease and Dietary Copper Though the underlying cause of Alzheimer’s disease has yet to be found, there is increasing concern about the role of metals in the development of the disease, as I discuss in my video Alzheimer’s Disease, Copper, and Saturated Fat. “Iron and copper,” for example, “are strongly concentrated within the neuritic plaques and neurofibrillary tangles that represent the ...

  • It’s True, You Are What You Eat / Fitness after 40: Your Strong Body at 40, 50, 60 and Beyond! It’s a waistline, not a wasteline “Paleo,” “teatox,” “juice cleanse,” oh my! The diet trends are endless right now. It seems like each week brings a new gadget or system that is the surefire way to a J-Lo body in two weeks. This makes me wonder… When did food get so complicated? Your guide to smart nutrition With all ...

  • Portobellos & Greens on Toast As much as I love mushrooms, they are seldom a main dish for me. Portobellos are the exception because they’re so hearty and satisfying.
