I came, I saw, I tried ZAMboost

Summer is over. Cold and flu season is on the way. Thankfully, there’s a new product to help! For those of you who have never heard of Zamboost, it is a new immune support supplement along the lines of Airborne or Emergen-C. But, ZAMboost is very different from both products because it has some ingredients the other two don’t.

Snacking 101
[Feb 20, 2013 | Comments Off | 9,000 views]

I really love sitting down to a great meal, but I have always been a food “grazer”.  I was never one who could starve myself all day so I could save the calories for my evening meal. Not only would my stomach start to growl, but I would experience a frightening personality change from the lack of food! Our blood sugar typically dips around three to five hours after we eat, so eating small, frequent snacks keeps the metabolism revved up and helps normalize our blood sugar. Hunger can throw the …

But an awareness of what we eat, or something called mindful eating, is exactly why the Mindful Eating and Living (MEAL) program at the University of New Mexico Center for Life Integrative Medicine Specialty Clinic was developed by Brian Shelley, MD.
