  • You’re never too young to protect your bones against breaks and fractures
  • Why calcium alone isn’t enough
  • Here’s my secret formula to prevent fractures

When I talk to younger and middle-aged patients about shoring up their bone density, they often look at me with confusion. “But doc, I’m only 52. I don’t have to worry about that for years!”

You won’t notice it at first. You’ll still feel strong and be able to do the same things you’ve always done… right up until the minute you experience a break or fracture!

  • Why are you always so bloated?

  • Beat the bloat with these simple tips

Nobody likes the feeling of being bloated. Whether you’re a man or a woman it’s flat-out uncomfortable. It doesn’t look very flattering either.

In many cases, the cause of bloat is surprisingly simple. You ate too much or too fast, slugged down a carbonated beverage or indulged in a heavily processed food.

Other times, it’s harder to pinpoint a cause. And if you frequently experience bloating, not knowing the source can be extremely frustrating. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t hope. In many cases, bloating is directly linked to digestive issues.

Some of these are easier to address than others. Continue reading
