Life Perspectives From 30 Plus Years As A Wellness Seeker

I don’t often write about my musings on life. Usually I am teaching the  latest exciting news about health and nutrition such as the miracle of the microbiome or the science of epigenetics or the teachings of Functional Medicine. Today is different.

I just found out that a fabulously fit, amazingly healthy young man had a brain bleed while hiking and it stopped me in my tracks. How could that happen? His life is forever changed in an instant. Yes, I am sure he will make a huge recovery from his brain injury but the truth is that could happen to any of us at any time, so I wanted to muse on the notion of living in the moment.

Being a wellness seeker is about being able to live fully in the moment. Feeling clear headed and energetic and vibrant so that each moment counts. I have never said this out loud, but I think we need to bring the concept of mindfulness front and center in our health and wellness teaching.

Being a wellness seeker is NOT about deprivation now for a brighter tomorrow. Some people live this way but I recommend we change that perspective. Living for tomorrow is a missed opportunity!

Here is what I know for sure . The meaning of anything is about being fully present while you do it.

This is a big leap for me as being a competitive athlete growing up, I was always delaying gratification for the hope of a better future! Perhaps it is living longer and realizing how precious life is that has shifted my perspective.

Constipation 101



We are not really taught about the importance of the gut and whether your digestive system is working properly. Some people have been constipated for 10 years and are dependent on laxatives. If you continue this trend, you can have further consequences.

Some people are suffering from the effects of constipation and don’t know any difference. Acne, weight, stomach pains, gas, bloating, skin issues, mood problems, lack of concentration and more!
