health & wellness blog
Our Glenwood Springs, CO wellness center and integrative medicine clinic is happy to share its thoughts on the latest developments in depression treatment, ketamine research, mental health, holistic wellness, and more.
This is the first of an ongoing series of blog posts, answering questions we get about different supplements…..we start with Vitamin D.
Vitamin D is not actually a vitamin at all. Because it can be synthesized by most mammals in sufficient amounts, it is really considered a hormone! Vitamin D is a group of fat-soluble compounds that can be made from cholesterol in the skin through a chemical reaction that depends on sun exposure.
Suggestions for getting back to the basics for immune system health and wellness. Your body, mind and spirit will thank you for creating a healthful environment any time of year, but with the holidays approaching and as we get deeper into winter, it’s more important than ever to improve the function of your immune system.
We were quite excited about an article published in the New York Times recently. The title of the November 5 article was “The Ketamine Cure.” Our integrative healthcare clinic has been safely working with ketamine since March 2020 and Dr. Stoner, our founding physician, has been working with it for over 20 years as an anesthesiologist. We were intrigued to see ketamine as a subject outside of medical journals and read the article with great interest.
Fall in the Colorado mountains. What a wonderful time of year. The Aspen trees are changing into the beautiful, brilliant gold that most people only get to experience in pictures and screen savers…For some this is a welcome change, signaling the transition from summer to winter. However, for others it can be a very difficult time of year.
Have you heard of a “coffee nap” or “nappuccino”? It’s a trend in napping where one drinks a cup of coffee or other caffeinated beverage and then immediately take a nap. The caffeine doesn’t kick in for about 30 minutes, allowing the perfect amount of time for a brief nap before it does. Proponents enjoy both the restorative effects of a powernap AND an alertness boost from the caffeine upon waking.
Covid-19 has been on our radar for about a year and a half now, and some new terms have entered the conversation. “Variants”, “long-haul”, “long-covid”, and “jabs” have all been added to our vocabularies. With a new surge of infections spreading across the country, we thought it was time to have another conversation about how to prevent and manage Covid-19 infections
Have you ever found yourself feeling tired and burned out after period of working on the computer or concentrating intensely on something for a while? Maybe you intuitively knew that going outside for a walk or some time in the garden, or even just “vegging out”...
For a versatile and simple exercise routine, few activities can rival walking. Most of us have been walking since we were toddlers, it’s something that can be done almost anywhere in almost every season, it doesn’t require any special equipment (though a pair of comfortable shoes are necessary), it’s a joint-friendly, low impact option, and the benefits are extremely helpful for people of all fitness levels. The more consistently you do it, the more you will experience these benefits. Read on for inspiration to get out there and take a walk!
Integrative medicine, with its holistic approach to treatment, especially shines when it comes to treating allergies. The recommendations below are accessible, simple, and effective in addressing both the causes and the symptoms of seasonal allergies. We’ll look at not only what you can do in the peak of allergy season, but what you can do year-round and in the months before the season really kicks in to help you get through the season in better shape.
Now that winter is here, many of us have a greater interest in taking better care of ourselves and our families in order to be less susceptible to getting sick. We wanted to talk about how to improve the function of your immune system.
One of the most effective strategies for getting through the pandemic is putting more time and attention into self-care. Being extra kind to yourself and creating habits that nurture your body, mind and spirit can be a real life-saver against the backdrop of day-to-day stresses exacerbated by Covid-inspired social distancing, isolation, fear, anxiety, or grief. So, please, do things for yourself that make your body feel better, bring a sense of calm to your mind and raise your spirits.
Here in Colorado and in many other places, it feels like winter has arrived after a mild weather November. The days are getting shorter and that will continue for another month, while colder weather and snow become the norm. Many of us feel a sense of “winter blues”...
