This is the last of our summer series on ten of my favorite posts over the years (I only ended a week late!). This week’s review post is on the importance of getting out and moving, no matter where you find yourself in life. This one has been hard for me, as I have been dealing with a chronic knee injury over the last twelve months that has really only started showing substantial improvement in the last four weeks. I am hopeful that I can sign up for some spring running races – something I was unable to do in all of 2019.

The lay-off has forced me to look for different avenues to stay moving and to get outside in different ways than I am used to. Still, every time I move beyond just the daily requirements of life, I am rewarded. God brings us into this world, moving and wiggling, and I believe one of the ways we experience life best is when we are as active as our frame will allow. It is good for the brain, body and soul. Consider this very basic, fundamental, yet critical, gift in life and see where you can add in a little more this week!

Dr. Doug's Top 10: Unplugging

A few weeks ago, we were in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and actually came across some areas with no cell service. Woot, woot!

The good news is: you don't actually have to drive all the way to the U.P. to turn off your phone or router at home. Read about all the benefits of leaving the tech behind for awhile in this post.

Dr. Doug’s Top 10: Vitamin D

Okay, everybody. Summer is almost over and I need to come off vacation! I have picked out the last four of the “Top 10 Best of” series and gotten them over to Emily, our very patient tech person, for updating and uploading.

This week’s “Best of” is on Vitamin D. We have already seen our first round of cold/flu for the year and it has been a doozy! Getting adequate levels of Vitamin D, both naturally (through sunlight) and as a supplement (especially October through March) can be one way to stay healthy as we go into fall and winter. Re-read this post to discover the benefits of adequate Vitamin D.

Dr. Doug’s Top 10: Protecting Your Sleep

This summer, we are revisiting the ten posts I believe have the greatest impact on day-to-day health. The choices are based on what we have seen in real life patients of the practice and the continuing unfolding of supportive scientific literature.

It is amazing how God puts us together. One of the things I have found fascinating are the paradoxes in health. To me, there is no greater contrast in the nervous system than between the need for sleep and activity. Activity (movement) is literally food for your brain: the less active you are, the less brain activity you have. In contrast, if you are active but don’t get enough sleep, you burn out the neurotransmitters in your brain! You need both rest and activity.

This post helps paint a good overview of how to create a space for healthy sleep in your life.

Dr. Doug’s Top 10: Paleo Food Summary and Cheat Sheet

This summer, we are revisiting the ten posts I believe have the greatest impact on day-to-day health. The choices are based on what we have seen in real life patients of the practice and the continuing unfolding of supportive scientific literature.

Over all the years of practice (31) and living in my body (55!), one of the single most important factors for physical healthy I have found is what you put in your mouth.

Let food be thy medicine and let medicine be thy food.
- Hippocrates

There is so much research linking good health to a good diet and bad health to a poor one that I don’t think anyone would dispute his quote today. The problem is with practicing it! The Paleo Summary and Cheat Sheet is a good place to start.
