Tap Into Your Inner Athlete
By Ashley DePaulis, Owner of ASH Fitness & Founder of The Inner Athlete

Feeling at odds with yourself and your body leads to high stress and low energy. It leads to managing your body as a project, or your injury or health challenge as a life sentence. NO ONE wants to play victim in that kind of story! The true story of your body is physical, it is personal and it is connected to the experience of your unique human spirit. Your true story is powerful. It is Your Inner Athlete.

In June, I introduced the concept of The Inner Athlete in my article Busting Through the Exercise BluesToday I want to dig deeper and talk about how to tap into The Inner Athlete, and why uncovering and getting in sync with Your Inner Athlete can be one of the most powerful things you do in your journey towards health and wellness. 

Everyone has an Inner Athlete. I don’t care whether you are a ultra-marathoner, a yogi, or a casual walker. READ MORE>>
Dr. Abby's Summer Travel Adventure

In July, my family and I took a trip to Scotland and Iceland. The trip that we took was focused around my son's participation in the Sterling Bridge International Music Festival. He went with the Colorado Children’s Chorale. A really fun moment for me was watching him perform at Saint Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh. The sound in the cathedral was amazing! I was so grateful for the opportunity for him as well. It was truly a trip of a lifetime.

Gummy Vitamin Concerns
By Dr. Abby Bleistein, Healthful Life MD

Is there cause for concern with "gummy vitamins?" There are many different gummies out there. Are some better than others?  

Tests by have found that some gummy supplements -- particularly gummy multivitamins --  do not contain their listed amounts of vitamins or minerals, or contain impurities. We continue to find more problems with candy-like vitamins like gummies than with traditional forms, such as tablets and caplets. READ MORE>>
