Have you ever wondered how your body processes the chemicals found in the air, on your food, and in products in your home? What happens when you are exposed to excessive amounts of these chemicals? In our modern, industrialized society, toxins are constantly surrounding you and creating an increased burden on your body’s natural detoxification pathways. You may notice these effects in your body over time with signs like decreased energy, brain fog, sluggish digestion, skin rashes, headaches, and other potential symptoms.

Have you ever met someone who looks and acts like they are in their 30s, then been surprised to learn they are actually in their 50s? We all know people who seem much younger than they really are, but why is that? Everyone has a chronological age (how old you are). But, you also have a biological age, which is a representation of how quickly your body’s cellular and molecular functions are deteriorating.
Does it feel increasingly difficult to maintain your weight as you age? If so, there may be a biochemical reason the number on the scale keeps creeping up. As you age, your body becomes much more susceptible to inflammation and less resistant to hormonal and environmental fluctuations.
As your body ages, it can become harder to do high-level activities such as running. Come join Ashley Kumar, physical therapist and personal trainer, in this runners-specific pop-up class, during which you will learn how to cross-train to prevent injuries that are common among runners. You’ll learn how to become injury-resilient with optimal trunk, pelvis, and hip control. Be sure to come in your workout clothes, because you and Ashley will be working together to put these exercises into action right away!

In this webinar, cardiologist and CEO Dr. Lauren Munsch Dal Farra explores the impact sugar has on the heart and why you may want to stick with flowers for your sweetheart.
