Your June Monthly Dose

Health comes in many forms. By understanding what matters most and engaging in your health I believe you can live a full life. Exercise: run, run, run your way to healthy knees:) But wait I thought all that pounding was bad for your knees?? This was the narrative for many years. Running was bad for your knees and if they hurt you should do something else. Like most things in life it is still a balance. In [...]

Your Monthly Dose of Health – May

Health comes in many forms. By understanding what matters most and engaging in your health I believe you can live a full life. Grub: Nutrition is a daunting field to master. Endless ideas on micronutrients (vitamins), macro dosages (carbs, fats, proteins) and so called superfoods, to ameliorate your health woes. I didn’t grow up with this complexity. I grew up believing food was simple - something we did as a family, mostly at home, and quick and dirty was sometimes, [...]

Your Monthly Dose of Health – April

Health comes in many forms. By understanding what matters most and engaging in your health I believe you can live a full and healthy life. Exercise: it has been a big month for exercise. A fantastic three part series by the Lancet urges both clinicians and patients to change their perception of back pain. The articles explain that most episodes of back will resolve on their own and don’t need expensive and time consuming electro therapies, time away from work, [...]

Your Monthly Dose of Health – March

Health comes in many forms. By understanding what matters most and engaging in your health I believe you can live a full and healthy life. Exercise: Roger Bannister the first man to run a sub 4 minute mile passed away this month. He was a fervent believer in amateur sport and lamented the ever increasing professionalization. As specialization and professionalism creep into sport at an ever earlier age how do we find the types of people who start rugby [...]

Your February Monthly Dose – finish winter on a high note

Health comes in many forms. By understanding what matters most and engaging in your health I believe you can live a full and healthy life. Nutrition: winter may be winding down here in Vancouver but there is still time for a few cozy warm meals. My suggestion this month - vegetable or meat stock. They are as ancient as Rome and loved by anyone half interested in cooking. They are nutritious and delicious but not magic. Stocks, [...]

Your January Monthly Dose – What to look for in 2018

Health comes in many forms. By understanding what matters most and engaging in your health I believe you can live a full and healthy life. Exercise: with an ever growing number of exercise formats, 2018 will be the year we see more research pointing to a simple fact: the best exercise is the one you are most consistent with. Consistency trumps anything fancy 9 times out of 10. Ask yourself - what do I enjoy the [...]
