Mining for melatonin

I think of melatonin as “sleep gold”. This slumber-enhancing hormone is a key element in the regulation of your body’s wake-sleep cycle. Not only does it act to make you drowsy so that you can fall asleep, but it also helps to “maintain” your sleep throughout the night. Melatonin production is triggered, in great part,…

Sneaky little sunburn!

Yay!  It’s officially summer this Friday!  We’re talking in the 90’s and time to soak up the sun!

How’s your balance?

Life is a continual balancing act. Whenever your equilibrium is disturbed, say between “have–to’s” and “want-to’s”, you feel the discomfort of being off-kilter right away. Not so with your physical balance. Nearly every patient whose balance I test and find lacking is thoroughly surprised. Young and old alike,…
