Training the cardiovascular system
Cardiovascular training is the process of continuously moving the body, elevating the heart rate, oxygen/carbon dioxide (CO2) exchange via increased breathing, and mobilizing stored muscle glycogen for fuel. It is the system in our bodies which allows for a consistent effort without fatiguing. Cardiovascular fitness is integral to health and to the full enjoyment of recreational activities.

Memory is a river
Writing a memoir is not for the meek! Opening portals into the past, especially places that hurt, may seem counterproductive. I've been asked, "Why do you want to bring that back up again?" and "Why do you want to focus on the bad things? There's so many precious memories to cherish." Those are all good questions to answer. But it's important to remember we're all unique and so are our circumstances. For me, it's all about thinking it through and deciding if looking back can help me heal.

A woman's desire for control
One of my goals in my practice is to heighten insight and self-awareness among my clients. Many of my female clients come to me with complaints of feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, and underappreciated. These symptoms are often married to perfectionistic tendencies and attempts to control the external to compensate for internal chaos.

Journey through thyme - Diet changes with historical trends
A century ago someone like you was seated at a kitchen table, mulling over a morning paper. The big difference? The meal. While you may be munching on fat-free yogurt and granola with a café latte made with almond milk, the centenarian, depending where he lived, filled his plate with porridge, flapjacks, mutton or a heart-stopping amount of home-cured bacon.

A boat called life
No one knows what it is like to walk in another person's shoes. Nor will we ever know the inside workings of an individual or a family.

Fun and funds raised for Amber
Ever been to a medical fundraiser with somber speeches and a lot of sad faces? Amber Alvarez Lara's recent fundraiser at Sisters Elementary School was exactly the opposite.

It's flea and tick season in Sisters
Spring seems to have finally arrived in Sisters. The little green buds on the trees outside have blossomed, daffodils have bloomed, and the air is getting warm. And along with spring come fleas and ticks.

Advocating for those with Parkinson's Disease
Four years ago, my recovery from shoulder surgery was not going well. At a post-surgical appointment in April, 2014, after unsuccessful physical therapy, my orthopaedic surgeon said, "I want you to see a neurologist."

Live until I die
"The afternoon of life is just as full of meaning as the morning; only, its meaning and purpose are different."

~ Carl Jung ~

No news here. People are living longer and the number of older people continues to grow. People are saying that 70 is the new 60 as retirees remain active and engaged.

Confronting body shame
I always ask my clients to rate their self-esteem 0-10. The vast majority of my clients rate themselves below 5. If my client happens to be female, complaints about her body almost always dominate the list of why. Intellect, character, performance and achievement are often never mentioned.

The skinny on dietary fats
Dietary fat has a history of polarized paradigms. Whether it was the theory that saturated fats cause heart attacks, to the belief that fat reduces obesity and diabetes, the saga continues. In order to catch readers' eyes or to sell a book, people often extrapolate data and state an overarching assumption as fact, taking a simplistic and reductionist mindset to one end or another of the spectrum.

Creating love - one spoon at a time
Mike Bush didn't want to be a retiree with too much time on his hands. So he thought about things he always wanted to do but never had. He remembered being intrigued by the old guys in Western movies sitting on a front porch whittling. It looked like fun!

Beware of ticks in Sisters forests
Hikers are reporting an inordinate number of ticks on the loose as the spring hiking season begins to take shape. Since ticks can carry a number of diseases, including Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Lyme Disease, it makes sense to learn how to avoid these obnoxious little critters.

Cure tension headaches ... and fix everything else that ails and fails
Generally, tension headaches are caused by the static and prolonged contraction of the muscles in the head, jaw, neck and shoulders. Makes sense! We have statically contracted muscles - tension - in a tension headache.

Diabetes is an American scourge. 25 million Americans have diabetes and the proportion is growing swiftly.

"The projection is that half of Americans will be diabetic or pre-diabetic by 2020," says Lisa Duncan, of Diabetes Wellness Solutions in Sisters.
