The Season of the Fours

March 28, 2017, by

As we approach Pesach, the number “4” starts taking prominence.  As we prepare for Seder night, we think about what we are going to say about 4 cups of wine, 4 questions, and 4 sons.  But I am also reminded that also four weeks from Purim until Seder night and those are hectic and stressful

Getting Through Pesach

March 22, 2017, by

It’s that time of the year again… the holiday season. Perhaps nothing is more challenging than getting through Pesach with your health and weight intact. As daunting and challenging as this may seem, a few little tricks and just a little self-discipline can get you through virtually unscathed.   There are essentially three areas where

We’re all SMILES!

March 6, 2017, by

Sometimes when the evidence finally emerges, I get very excited.  There are some things we know through experience or what some might call the “6th sense”. But when a good scientific large-scale study provs the point, you just want to say “Baruch Hashem!”.  And at the time of writing this article, this past week was

Your Money or Your Health!

February 21, 2017, by

This past week was very typical in my office.  When people are interested in any of our programs, I encourage them to come in for a free 20 minute consultation to make sure we are on the same page in terms of what is involved in succeeding in order to attain their goals in health

No Way around It – It Takes Work

February 13, 2017, by

There was very significant health news a few weeks ago.  When news about health makes it to the headlines, it usually means we have to pay attention.  For over 100 years, the average life expectancy of people who live in the United States has increased, with the exception of 1993 and that aberration occurred because

Money and Happiness

February 6, 2017, by

Happiness and Wellbeing are an essential part of health.  Stress from any cause is highly detrimental to health and research has indicated that stress is a factor in up to 85% of all illness. It can cause illness or aggravate existing illness.  Nechama was a middle-aged women who I met two years ago.  If you

Is it Worth the Counting?

January 30, 2017, by

The number of people who consciously watch what they eat and plan and do serious exercise is relatively small compared to the population at large.  We have watched as obesity and overweight have become epidemics and the amount of people with diabetes and high blood pressure and other disease has grown proportionately with the growth

Pain: A Little to Get Rid of a Lot

January 17, 2017, by

Being in pain, especially chronic pain is just no fun.  All of us have had some pain at some time in our life.  Sometimes it can be just a bump, bruise or minor burn, but sometimes, it can be chronic lower back pain, arthritis or other causes of severe pain that just doesn’t seem to

It’s Winter Again: How to Stay in Shape

January 9, 2017, by

It’s definitely wet and cold outside!  With temperatures running below normal and wind and rain making it difficult to get out and exercise, we need to look at the alternatives to outdoor workouts and how to cope with the winter season. There are two very negative effects of winter. Firstly, it’s a time that we

Not just what you Eat-It’s also how you eat!

January 3, 2017, by

Yisrael Meir came to see me a few weeks ago. He was being very compliant with a food plan given by a dietician but had stopped losing weight after initial success.  My staff dietician reviewed his plan and we determined together that he should have been losing.  So we began to probe and prod and
