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...

A New Way Lose Weight

I have to confess something to you!!! I have mentioned this in the past and I will mention it again today.  When I was growing up most if not all of our gatherings centered around food.  Obviously Thanksgiving was a big one. Going to Mema and Papa’s house for smoked turkey, cornbread dressing and of course a ton of desserts.  Christmas eve at my parents house centered around mexican food. Being from San Antonio what else would you expect? I remember going to the Delicious Tamale Factory ( yes that is the name of the business) and getting dozens of...

10 Best supplements to help with...

Everyone seems to be looking for the magic bullet!!! A pill, exercise or some device they can put on themselves at night and magically wake up the next day feeling better.  I am afraid I am the bearer of bad news. That ain’t gonna happen.  But what I will tell you is that thoughtful, consistent choices over time can add up to a huge change.  In Darren Hardy’s book “The Compound Effect” he states that anything in life we do that is meaningful will take time to see a dramatic change.  In other words there is no “overnight success”.   Some...

Springtown Arthritis Pain Sufferers…Do you wake up with stiff joints?  Do you moan and groan as you begin the day due to joint or muscle pain?  Have you been diagnosed with some form of arthritis (osteo - most common) rheumatoid) or have a family history?  If you answered yes to any of the above questions then you are not alone.  Many of my patients complain of these similar issues on a daily basis. Their doctor has told them they have arthritis (inflammation) and there is nothing they can do.  Most resort to doing nothing or taking harmful NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatories)...

Be Strong Like Superman

In a prior blog post I discussed the benefits of being “flexible like gumby”. In this follow up article I want to tell you about several benefits of participating in a regular strength training program.  In high school I was a student of the martial arts. I began taking karate lessons in high school but was still a skinny kid. I wanted a way to develop some strength to really have a “punch” behind my punch, so I started lifting weights.  At first I didn’t enjoy it (because I was sore all of the time) and it didn’t seem to...

Fuel Your Day; Food As Medicine

Do you ever find yourself hungry, looking for food in the refrigerator or pantry but don’t have any luck? Or do you find something to eat but it just doesn’t sound satisfying? Food for a lot of us is therapeutic. Both in a mental sense but also in a physical sense.  Food is fuel...plain and simple, but what type of food you consume has a major effect on your health. In other words it is medicine! Now don’t get me wrong, I have said it in the past and I will say it again today, I love junk food. Brownies...

Snacking To Win

There is an episode of Seinfeld where Elaine developed the habit of having a sugary snack (a slice of cake or a cookie) around 3PM, as there was always someone in the office celebrating a birthday or anniversary.  At one point she denounced the excessive celebrations and got cut off from the afternoon sugar rush. She quickly realized how much she actually depended on the afternoon jolt.  Does this sound familiar? Do you seem to hit the wall mid-afternoon?  If this sounds like you, what do you do?  Are you like Elaine? Looking for a sugary substance to snack on...

Win In The Grocery Store

Grocery Shopping Tips Do you ever feel overwhelmed at the grocery store? I do.  As a kid I remember going to the grocery store with my mom. Hanging onto or riding in the cart with my brother and sister. I am sure my mom questioned taking us all to the store at the same time but I don’t think she had a choice.  My dad worked during the day (as a police officer) and my mom was a “domestic engineer”...such is the life of a stay at home mom. Now I understand why my wife frequently leaves Charlee (my toddler)...

The Importance of Drinking Water: The...

We’ve all heard that you're supposed to drink 8 glasses of water a day. But do you know why? And is that really how much water you are supposed to drink? To answer these questions, let’s look at my Uncle Rocky for some insight. The Uncle Rocky Story Years ago, I remember going to my Uncle Rocky’s house. He always had a strange assortment of jokes and gags laying around his house.  One thing in particular was an old man's face hanging on his wall. The old man had a little red tie that you could pull on and then...
