  • Back In Rhythm

    Two years ago, Stacy Clark was only 45 when she was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation — “A Fib” — is an abnormal heart rhythm in which the upper chambers of the heart (atria) are out of sync with the lower chambers of the heart (ventricles).

    In atrial fibrillation, the atria “quiver” chaotically and the ventricles beat irregularly, causing such symptoms as a fluttering feeling in the chest, a racing pulse, low energy, a faint or dizzy feeling, chest pressure or discomfort, shortness of breath and anxiety, and in Clark’s case, an unusual symptom of tunnel vision when her heart was out of rhythm. click for more

    Home to our abdominals, lower back, latissimus dorsi (lats) and obliques, our core — or torso — is at the center of almost every move we make. We use our core to sit down, stand up, to get out of bed, to get in and out of a car, to bend over, to lift, to balance and for so much more.

    Ball or chair exercises for core strength
    To help improve your core strength, sit on a large exercise ball or a chair. Maintaining good posture with your “sit bones” on the middle of the ball or chair (the two bone bumps designed to bear your seated weight), line knees up with shoulders, feet flat on the floor. click for more
  • What’s In A Label?

    Have you ever considered the notion that the fewer the ingredients, the less likely you are to ingest a long list of additives? Although it may seem daunting to wend your way through the supermarket reading food labels, knowing exactly what you’re eating is an important step to good health.

    The American Heart Association® and The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention™ (CDC) list the recommended adequate amount of daily sodium as 1,500 milligrams or less. click for more
