Last weekend I skied in my ALINE insoles for the first time. What I experienced was a monumental change. You see, I love skiing and I am a pretty good skier. However, I have always had trouble finding ski boots that fit well. I drove the sales-guy at Christy’s crazy a few years back when I was trying on and purchasing my ski boots. I finally settled on a pair that felt decent, but they were by no means an ideal fit. I never knew why, but my shins always fell into the gap in front of my boots and they hurt within a few runs. I tried several types of insoles (off the rack, Foot Levelers, etc) but none made a difference, until I put the ALINEs in last weekend.

In 1979, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) developed “A Daily Food Guide,” creating the four “food groups” and suggested daily recommended servings for each age group. In 1992, they launched the food pyramid. Hoping to simplify the message they split the “fruit and vegetable group” and added a “Fats, Oils & Sweets” group. In 2011, they launched “The Plate and the Moon”. This concept takes the dinner plate and divides it into the easy to remember four food groups (still splitting fruits and vegetables into their own groups) and adding an “orbiting dairy moon”. It’s simple, uncomplicated and wrong.
Since 1916, when the USDA first launched their nutrition guidelines, all seven, including this latest, operates under the premise that fat makes us fat, which simply isn’t true. Unhealthy starches and carbohydrates are responsible for our expanding waistlines. Read the rest of this entry →

Thanks in part to the non-fiction book Born To Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race In the World written by Christopher Mcdougall, the barefoot running craze has blossomed over the last few years. Born To Run chronicles a tribe called the Taramuhara that among other things, runs barefoot. These tribe members are known to run further and faster with virtually no injuries compared to other more developed societies. As the books title suggests, these tribe members are “superathletes.”
Barefoot running has opponents from each side of the court; some suggesting barefoot running is the end-all-be-all of running, with their counterparts warning us of increased risk of injury. Hopefully I can meet you in the middle summarizing the key points of each argument.
I first became interested in Infant Massage while I was still in school. I really enjoyed working with my expectant clients, and wanted to find a way to stay connected and continue care after they delivered. My prenatal instructor told me about Infant Massage. This was the missing puzzle piece to well-rounded care. I studied Infant Massage in the U.S., but really became passionate about teaching others after I traveled to Asia. During my study of different Eastern healing arts, one thing really stood out to me: massage was done in the home between family members. It was done from parent to infant. Once the children were older, they naturally started massaging their parents, and the rolls reversed as the parents began to age. After seeing that kind of compassion and bonding, I wondered why we don’t tend to see that in the West as well. It seemed like the most natural thing to do, yet was something I felt was missing or foreign to our culture.
Massage is a natural way to relieve stress for both caregiver and child. It enhances your intimacy, understanding, and ability to nurture your child. It improves communication by increasing your confidence and sensitivity to your baby’s cues, and stimulates healthy development of your baby’s mind, body, and spirit. Read the rest of this entry →
Lung cancer is a very tricky type of cancer because the main reason that a person gets it is because of smoking. This habit is a very hard one to break so while that habit is in the process of being broken, here is an article outlining another way to help combat the risks for lung cancer.
PHILADELPHIA — Adding a variety of vegetables to one’s diet may help decrease the chance of getting lung cancer, and adding a variety of fruits and vegetables may decrease the risk of squamous cell lung cancer, especially among smokers.
Study results are published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research.
“Although quitting smoking is the most important preventive action in reducing lung cancer risk, consuming a mix of different types of fruit and vegetables may also reduce risk, independent of the amount, especially among smokers,” said H. Bas Bueno-de-Mesquita, M.D., M.P.H., Ph.D., senior scientist and project director of cancer epidemiology at The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment, The Netherlands.
