Muscle, menopause and glucose

The relationship between muscle, menopause and glucose are inextricably linked if you seek optimal health. A few weeks ago, we shared a post discussing the importance of muscle for metabolic health. Muscle — and, in particular, having more muscle — is linked to better insulin sensitivity and glucose utilization. The body also burns more calories at rest when it has a higher amount of muscle, making it easier to maintain a healthy body weight and also maintain bone density. […]

Acupuncture for stress management

Living in modern society, we are exposed to stressors on a daily basis, and acupuncture can be key for stress management. Whether it be traffic, deadlines at work, finances, or confrontation with others, these all elicit a similar biochemical stress response. Stress is a normal part of life and, at times, vital to our survival. However, it becomes problematic when we are stressed for prolonged periods of time or become disproportionately stressed to a minor scenario. […]

The metabolic importance of muscle

For most of us, time in the gym is centered around two key factors. We want to live a long healthy life free of disease and we want to enjoy every minute of it with as few limitations as possible. We look at these as the concepts of Lifespan (a long healthy life) and Healthspan (a life free from limitations and pain). And in both instances, muscle is one of the key organs to support our goals, largely for the significant impacts muscle has on our metabolic health. How well (or not) we metabolize the food we eat impacts nearly every system in the body. […]

Food labels, explained

Our food system here in the United States is a complex topic, and even more so given that the cost of goods is increasing. What differentiates between an organic product and a conventional one? Or a “grass fed” piece of meat versus “grain fed?” And what’s this “pasture raised” stuff? […]

Strength training for men

Men can benefit greatly from properly designed strength and conditioning work. It is worth discussing some of the specific strength training recommendations for men, and how those recommendations can apply to women as well. However, these recommendations can change based on variable circumstances and training goals. Every individual is unique and different, so knowing as much as we can about how to take advantage of our strengths to overcome our weaknesses is critical. […]

Acupuncture for maintenance and prevention

Oftentimes individuals will not think to seek out an acupuncturist until they are actively injured or in pain. While this is a great place to start, we’re missing out on all the other benefits acupuncture has to offer outside of pain management. […]

June is for Justice: APANO

Since May 1990 the U.S. government has designated the month of May as Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, celebrating the achievements and contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) in the United States. The month of May was chosen because it commemorates the migration of the first immigrants from Japan to the United States on May 7, 1843 and to celebrate the completion of the transcontinental railroad by over 20,0000 Asian immigrants on May 10, 1869.
