Benefits of Physical Activity for Mental...

For years we’ve heard about the importance of physical fitness for our muscles, joints and aches and pains but what about the impact it has on our mental health?  Physical activity can be beneficial in more ways than one- it may even make you a happier person! No, really.  I’m sure that can sound hokey and that you may at this moment be picturing yourself with a ridiculous smile while doing a hundred pushups but that’s not what I mean, bare with me.  You see, when we exercise, our bodies release a special set of hormones- not only do we...

Is Extreme Texas Heat the Cause...

It’s no question that this summer has been uncharacteristically hot and humid, even for Texas. But what’s even more abnormal is the uptick in people suffering from summer colds! Strep, stomach bug, bacterial infections, flu symptoms, you name it.  So why? Well, for starters, the heat certainly encourages people to swim more, whether that means getting in a pool, or a lake. The heat also makes it easier for bacteria to breed in the water. Just another reminder to not drink the pool or lake water!  This is especially important for young swimmers who may think it’s amusing to hold...

…And the Rest is History

Last week we talked about one super important and complex joint in our bodies: the Knee And knowing that the knee is the most complex joint in our bodies, that must mean that a lot can go down hill if we get injured or cause inflammation to that joint, right? Right.  So what do you do?  Rest.  The first thing you can do for yourself to ease your pain now and help your body heal is to slow down and rest.  For many of us it can be difficult to slow down, it’s much too easy to get sucked into...

3 Things you KNEEd to know

Do you suffer from knee pain? Even if you don’t, you probably know somebody who does.  Knee pain affects roughly twenty-five percent of the population, which may not seem like a lot, but those statistics mean that knee pain is the main complaint of four million individuals and is the reason for a visit to their  primary care physician.  Knee pain can not only be obnoxious but can inhibit your ability to do the things that you enjoy, and many things that are a part of everyday life.  Squatting down to get something under the kitchen sink, walking the dog,...

Balance in the Kitchen

We’ve been talking about balance a lot here, and the many ways it affects our day to day lives. We don’t just want to provide you with a quick fix solution, here at MOSS, we want to provide you with information that empowers you to really know your body. This week, we’re talking about balance in a less literal sense, and a more metaphorical one.  Nutritional balance. What is it? How do you find it? How do you maintain it? First question: What is it?  Nutritional balance is referring to what kind of fuel you’re providing your body with and...

Get ‘On-Board’ With Balance

Have you ever seen something and thought that you would be really, really good at it? And then you try it, and it’s not pretty? Me too, in fact, I bet that most people you know would say they’ve had a similar experience. One of those things for me, was a balance board.  For those of you that haven’t experienced one of these, a balance board is essentially a piece of wooden board with two guard pieces on either end of the underside. This is to keep it from sliding completely off the wooden cylinder that it is balanced on....
