Preconception, Prenatal and Postnatal Optimization: Nutritional Strategies for Patients in Their Childbearing Years

The role of epigenetics on fetal and human development is of paramount importance to all of us as healthcare practitioners and parents.

It was a tragic experiment on the long-term effects of famine. From December 1944 until Germany surrendered in May 1945, food was rationed to under 1,000 dietary calories per day and dropped as low as 580 calories per day in the height of winter.

For many years to come, researchers will examine how societal norms, human behavior, medications, and underlying conditions affected not only COVID-19 outcomes, but a host of ancillary illnesses. We are likely to see studies on depression in adolescents, domestic violence, elder neglect, and failure to adhere to medical advice.

4 Resilience Strategies for Busy, Stressed-Out Practitioners

Promoting health and vitality is something we all know how to do, yet life can sometimes conspire against us. We get caught in time crunches, food deserts, insomnia vortices and other places where making smart, healthy choices is not always easy, or for that matter, a priority. Yet maintaining good health requires work, a strategy and the occasional checkup and test. Life itself can act as a healing catalyst if we learn how to use it.
