Busting Nutrition Myths with The Healthy Skeptic Dr. Robert J. Davis

Are you skeptical about health and nutrition claims?  You should be.  There is no single source of truth when it comes nutrition, most general practice physicians have little to no training on the subject, we’re constantly being bombarded with conflicting new-studies-show type headlines from the media, shysters and hustlers are promising amazing weight loss success…

Adventure Has No Age Limit with Dr. Alyssa Kuhn

When’s the last time you had an adventure?  When is the last time you did something challenging and exciting?  When is the last time that you went exploring?  When’s the last time you took a risk, or did something bold?  Many of us lose our sense of adventure as we grow older.  Perhaps we have…

(Very) Strong at 70 with Shelly Stettner
