LIVER = Health

New research is coming in about your liver and your health.  It is nothing extremely new that your ability to detox (with your liver) is going to help you have better health.  What is new in the research is that there are over 350+ functions of the liver and they are all important.

#youarenotalone

Today there are so many things to keep track of, especially as a parent.  Pat yourself on the back guys for making it this far in life.  #TheStruggleIsReal for all of us.  So now have you tried metatation, diets, deep breathing like in Yoga, stretching, exercise, food preperation, etc?  Well, you are like many.

Here is a tip for all of you reading this. (#FoodForThought) What I tell my patients is simply this: less is more.  Start small, be mindful and learn about the things your heart seeks.  This means to choose to cook your meal, go outside and throw the ball with your kid, wake up the first sound of your alarm, drink water and sometimes say “NO” or “Not today!”.

I see patients at my practice all the time that need me to facilitate their care and give them direction and confidence to get there.

We don’t see the change that is occuring because we are the ones that are in our bodies and the people around us are mostly around too often to notice the clearer skin or the whit you used to have come back again.  These are things that you have to be mindful of and have a professionally devoted individual help you with.  That is why I am here.

TO all of you struggling right now in your daily life, here is some #RealIncouragement for you.

  • you’re human
  • you’re strong
  • you’re loved
  • you’re accepted
  • you’re ABLE

Now go and do nothing for a moment accept BE!
