Back in November, my trusted friend and colleague, Press Maycock, came to the VA to give a presentation to Veterans and staff on the food-mood connection.
Press shared information about foods that the doctors don’t provide to their patients. Maybe they don’t know, or maybe they don’t think it will make a difference, but either way, the docs and nutritionists almost never share 21st century, evidence-based nutritional information with their patients.
Press shared, and for one Vet in particular, he made a huge difference.
This is my favorite time of year — the sunshine, fresh produce, and warmth are definitely earth-based medicine for me. They also fuel my motivation to eat well and move my body joyfully. This spring I participated in a fitness challenge with five colleagues, and together we racked up over 14,500 minutes of exercise in 8 weeks. It felt so good to move again after feeling so sludgy all winter!
Also, last month I had the honor to meet with and be interviewed by Polly Tommey on the VAXXED bus. This courageous woman has dedicated her life to vaccine safety awareness after her son was injured by the MMR shot many years ago.
