(Article) You Absolutely Need to Stop Wearing Shoes in Your House

There may be no marker of modern civilization quite like the shoe: not only does it make clopping around our cemented world significantly more tolerable (and less dangerous), but it also serves as an indicator of our sensibilities, our profession, our sense of style. You can tell a lot by the shoes people wear from the type of work they do to their income levels, even their political standings. And there’s something else shoes can tell us: whether or not we’re at risk of serious health issues.

A recent study out of the University of Houston found that 39 percent of shoe soles sampled were contaminated with the bacteria C. diff(Clostridium difficile), a public health threat that is now resistant to a number of antibiotics. C. diff infections can cause severe diarrhea that may progress to colon inflammation and more serious health issues, especially if it does not respond to antibiotic treatment. Read More

5 Tips to Stay Healthy During the Holidays

IMG_13771)  Control your eating portions:  When Holiday parties come into existence, overeating is almost inevitable.  “Snack” throughout the entire party, don’t fill up your plate at any one given time.

2)  Drink water with every meal/snack:  Water will speed up the food absorption process, so you can make efforts to keep a fast metabolism.  Also, remember that dehydration occurs with no symptoms.

3)  Pick a workout partner now!:  Nobody, and I repeat nobody, will work out to the extent they need to during the Holidays.  If someone is meeting with you, your chances of exercising will go up 10 fold.

4)  No Sugary Foods in the Evenings:  When you’re not being active during the Holidays, don’t consume any sugar unless it’s in a fruit or vegetable!

5)  Get to bed Early!!!:  During the Holidays it’s very easy to stay up very late at night, and then be sluggish for the next day.  If you have kids, you’ll probably have to wake up with them early in the morning, especially when they don’t have school the next day.  Every day during the Holidays will have its own challenges, so please make sure you’re ready to start the day off the right way.
